Music. It's what makes me thrive. Music feeds my mind, body, and soul in a way that nothing else can. The only thing that comes close is television and movies, hence why I'm an entertainment blogger and why I have a Bachelor's degree in music production – it's kinda my thing. Literally, as I speak, I have the TV paused while I listen to a new track. It's my life. That's why I lost my mind when I found about HBO's new series that was all about sex, drugs, and rock & roll!
First of all, Vinyl has an incredible cast! It's packed full of talented actors! These actors will pull you into the 70's and have you dreaming of being in the music scene. You can't turn on this show expecting to watch only one episode – oh no – you need to grab some snacks, a comfortable blanket, and allot a few hours because you're going to be a binge-watching, music-loving fool. The series is really intriguing. It gives you a real look into the music scene that we don't always get to see.
