How about music and magic for the holidays?
♪♪♪♪♪ Evolution Device ♪♪♪♪♪
Do you remember when music was magic? Do you remember being spellbound, in thrall to the power and glory that stole your soul and made you high?
Do you still listen? Is a part of you still there?
Guitarist Eddie Edmunds is rising to fame in 1970s London’s hothouse of rock music. He has a Muse who is part spirit and part human; a guitar that is part electronics and part… something else; and a heroin addiction that doesn’t quite let him hide from the power he’s never learned to control.
He’s a man who is fighting his power. She’s a Muse who’s losing her power. Evolution Device is a band that’s finding its power. And only the guitar knows what power Eddie evokes when she sings for him.
Evolution Device. A man, a band, and a promise.

Mage Music: The Blog Writings on Magick and Creativity is not a grimoire. It does not contain spells and invocations. Sorry, but if that’s what you’re looking for, you’re likely never going to find what you need.
Mage Music is a compilation of selected posts from jimmypagemusic.blogspot.com from May 7, 2012 through November 22, 2014 (other posts don’t address magic directly, so the book is the better way to go). Begun with the intention of discussing and analyzing the music of the extraordinary guitarist, Jimmy Page, it evolved into a broader look at the creative nature of Magick and the connection of Magick with music and other forms of art. This book is the text of those aspects of that blog.
You will find no spells or instructions for making magical objects or invoking entities because the focus is the ur-Magick: the source of the energy and the fundamentals common to all specific practices of Magick.
You will, however, find out how to connect with your own Magick, and to appreciate the Magick of the Mage Musician, Jimmy Page.
