Rearview Mirror – Kevin J Thornton

This Olive Garden used to be sooooo much better.

Our posts of rock and roll friends looking backwardly onto the music that shaped their past year or decade continues!  Today’s post peeking at the past features Kevin J Thornton – musician (most recently in Waves on Waves), stand-up comedian and creator of the one man show Sex, Dreams & Self Control.

Kevin gave us a list of his 20 favorite albums of the past decade.  Check ’em out below.
