Our Story

Rock and Roll has no beginning and no end for it is the very pulse of life itself.”
-Larry Williams-

Launched in 2013, written by music junkies for music junkies. Eclectic not esoteric. We are the kids who wrote lyrics on the back of school notebooks. You can expect interviews, podcasts, reviews, and playlists for all occasions, and much more. Above all else we will bring our collective love for the music that binds us together. All music. All genres. We are not professional critics, if we write about something it means we love it! An idea born on the airwaves as a way for freinds to stay in touch and share their passion for music, 50THIRDAND3RD became a labor of love and a true long distance romance. Our common roots lie in rock and roll but eventually we each take different roads to get to the same place.


  • Stephen: Co-Founder, Global Editorial Director, Project Manager

Domestic now, but spent the early to late 80s playing drums in a glam rock band in Toronto. A music fiend, he listens to pretty much anything, anywhere, anytime. Music is always on.



  • Ben: Founder, Editor-in-Chief, Website Maintenance & Security Manager

Fell in love with music the very first time he listened to his parents old 45’s of Elvis & Johnny Cash. Passionate, complex, spiritual, as well as damned. A man of many contradictions.



We have a worldwide crew of talented writers and podcasters posting on the site, and we’re always looking for more.
