Blinker The Star: I Won't Look Down

Rock auteur and studio wunderkind Jordon Zadorozny returns to his long-term project with this advance track from an album due next spring. Keyboards and guitars mesh effectively, there are enough tempo changes to keep things interesting, and the production values are top-notch.

Blinker The Star: I Won't Look Down

By Kerry Doole

Blinker The Star: "I Won't Look Down" (Nile River Records). Blinker The Star is the long-time project of singer/songwriter/producer Jordon Zadorozny, a rock auteur and studio wunderkind who can be viewed as the Canadian equivalent of Todd Rundgren or Jeff Lynne.


He specialises in layered productions that retain a strong melodic core, and this new track, released today, is no exception. Keyboards and guitars mesh effectively, there are enough tempo changes to keep things interesting, and the production values are top-notch.

It was recorded at Zadorozny's Skylark Park Studio in Pembroke, Ontario, and co-written with Bob Wilcox, who also made contributions to Blinker The Star's 2017 album 8 Of Hearts.

Zadorozny informs us that "work continues on a new album slated for next spring with shows being planned for the first time in six years." That is excellent news, for he remains one of our most talented (if rather undervalued) artists.

In the late '90s, he gained attention for co-writing songs with Courtney Love in the late 1990s, and he has also appeared on recordings by Melissa Auf der Maur, Sam Roberts, Mandy Moore, and others.

Shaq’s Classic Song ‘You Can’t Stop the Reign’ Featuring Biggie Is Finally on Streaming Services

There's a more explicit Biggie verse in the vault, according to the NBA legend.

Shaq’s classic with Biggie is finally available on streaming services. The news was broken by FakeShoreDrive on X earlier this week, and the Hall of Fame big man confirmed the news Thursday afternoon (June 13).

The year is 1996 and Shaquille O’Neal and the Notorious B.I.G. are two of the biggest figures in their respective fields. Shaq was entering the last year of his deal with the Orlando Magic before he headed west to the Los Angeles Lakers at the end of the 1995-1996 season. Biggie was getting ready to release his sophomore album, Life After Death, while in the throws of a beef with 2Pac. Big name-dropped the NBA player on the song “Gimme the Loot” off his debut album, Ready to Die, and the two had a mutual respect for each other ever since.
