Best Debut Albums of 2011, Dobie Gray Drifts Away (RIP), Late Night Pick of the Night: Chevelle

Metacritic has a list of the Top Critically Rated Debut Albums of 2011.  A little something for all music fans in there.  I can personally attest to the fun that is the Wild Flag album, which I have been grooving on lately. 

Dobie Gray of "Drift Away" and "The In-Crowd" fame passed away at 71 on 12/6.  I didn't know that his stage came from Sonny Bono and was inspired by one of my favorite sitcoms of all-time, "The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis".  Read the full obit HERE.

Finally, check out alternative metal band Chevelle tonight on Jimmy Kimmel at midnight on ABC.
