The answers you've already received answer your question well, but I have an app recommendation that might help get you running sooner. If you have an iPhone, I found the Spring app very helpful for this purpose. It's not free (well, the app is free but requires a subscription) but for me, it's well worth the fee because it saves me having to research and ...

The classical tempo marking Andante literally means "walking speed" (73–77 BPM). There's no similar translation of "running" or "jogging" speed, but Allegretto (98-109 BPM) and Allegro (109-132 BPM) are arguably in that ballpark. As this book details, running involves longer strides just as much as it does faster strides, so moving twice as fast doesn't ...

I found one article that might be promising. I accessed it through the online database Academic Search Premier, through my University library. Citation: Beaster-Jones, Jayson. “A.R.

Clinton's well-known 1992 campaign theme song was Fleetwood Mac's 1977 hit "Don't Stop Thinking About Tomorrow," which gave the song new life, and convinced the group to briefly reunite for Clinton's inauguration. Clinton personally insisted on the song despite his advisors' doubts, so it's safe to call him a fan. However, neither that song, nor anything ...

Outside of Oxford Music, I'm not aware of any similar dedicated music encyclopedias. Wikipedia is as close as I know of, and it is generally comprehensive if not as authoritative as OM. The only other encyclopedia-like sites I've found are: https://www.dolmetsch.com/index.htm: This site appears to be for a commercial early instrument seller, but they have a ...

Robert Wyatt, originally the drummer for Soft Machine and Matching Mole in the late 60's and early 70's, had a fall out of a fourth story window in 1973 which left him paralyzed from the waist down. Wyatt continued to write music and record after the fall up until 2014, with his first post-accident album, Rock Bottom, considered a classic:

The Congolese dance band Staff Benda Bilili was formed by a group of disabled street musicians. Their music is powerful, often joyous, and combines elements of Congolese dance music, funk, and rock-n-roll. The core of the band consists of four senior singers/guitarists, who are paraplegic (they had poliomyelitis when they were young) and move around in ...

I recently discovered musipedia which describes itself as The Open Music Encyclopedia. I don't yet know how comprehensive it is but I have found it to be a very good look up tool at least. You don't get a lot of information but you get some links which may be useful. I have tried it mostly with classical music and, so far, I have not defeated it. I need to ...

I wasn't able to find any direct quote from Springsteen, but Van Zandt does refer to himself that way in an interview with Billboard Magazine: My relationship with Bruce was the same relationship that Silvio had with Tony Soprano. Silvio was not afraid of Tony. Bruce and I grew up together, so I’m never going to be afraid of him. You want a buffer in ...
