The Buck Stops Here

William Buchheit's two-time award-winning column doesn't appear in The Greer Citizen every week. But when it does, you can count on reading a passionate, compelling and informative argument.

The two sides of Alice Cooper

The other night I went to see Alice Cooper at the Spartanburg Memorial Auditorium. The show was terrific — better than I expected, and I’ve seen him in concert before. I love a lot of his music, including classic rock radio staples “Be My Lover,” “I’m Eighteen” and “No More Mr. Guy.”

The enemy within

Over the last three years, America’s fentanyl problem has gone from bad to worse.

Just last week, in fact, US Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas called overdoses from the synthetic opiate “the single greatest challenge we face as a country.”

RIP Gary Rossington

In the early 1960s, there was a fateful baseball game in Jacksonville, FL. A teenage Ronnie Van Zandt hit a line drive at an infielder named Bob Burns. Before he could get his glove up, the ball smacked Burns in the shoulder and fell to the ground.

My favorite ‘90s albums

It’s hard to believe it’s been 20 years since we said goodbye to the 1990s.  Musically, it was the decade that made rock music relevant again, introducing grunge and bringing in a resurgence of punk music.  In those pre-mp3 days, music stores still sold CDs and the album was considered an art form.
