Metallica fans! The RIOB strikes again.

Plagiarism of “Stairway to Heaven” ridiculous according to Jimmy Page.

http://consequenceofsound.net/2014/05/jimmy-page-calls-stairway-to-heaven-plagiarism-charge-ridiculous/

 

REALLY? Best selling album in the last 25 years?

http://consequenceofsound.net/2014/05/this-is-the-best-selling-album-of-the-last-25-years/

 

The first band I was in with Rob, Rydell and Dave played 2 songs from this album at “Beerfest” in 2002. I said “Here’s some old Metallica”! It was released in August of ’91. It was 11 years old. We finished our set and some moron tried to start a fight with me yelling “THAT’S NOT OLD METALLICA!” Maybe it’s not ’80s Metallica but it was old at the time and even older now!

MELISSA AUF DER MAUR

Thursday, May 29th 2014

 

Bass player for Hole, Smashing Pumpkins, Black Sabbath tribute band and finally 2 albums under the name AUF DER MAUR. Lead singer and bass player. Yep, she’s from Montreal, Quebec, a Canadian who’s done very well! I wasn’t a fan of “Hole” and I was a very casual fan of “Smashing Pumpkins”. The second Mitch and I saw this video on Much Music I had this immediate reaction “I NEED THIS……NOW!” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K4LObO91WTA

 

This is from the same album https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SOhCGJ9IKRk From the album “Auf Der Maur” released in 2004.

 

These following songs are from the albun “Out of Our Minds” released in 2010

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ie1fZCY8iKY

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OHan_RwI_VU

 

I got the opportunity to see her live. The show was opener “Limblifter”, “Auf Der Maur” and headliner “Matthew Good” in the now gone bar The Distrikt. It was fairly empty for “Limblifter” but steadily filled up like most concerts do.

MEGADETH aka MEGADAVE MUSTAINE

Thursday, May 29th 2014

 

Yeah the guy that was kicked out of Metallica because he was an alcoholic? What band earned the nick name Alcohollica? It wasn’t Megadeth. Honestly, I just started listening Megadeth late last year around the release of “Super Collider”. I bought the “Greatest Hits” album and was immediately hooked! Luckily James had the other 13 albums, no I won’t give a link to a song from each album I’ll give you four of my favourite songs.

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4tzWc3Xl4B0 I think this song was in one of the “Guitar Hero” games for Play Station 2, or it may have been the next song.

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QtPQ_QJpFIU

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PZhqZAVGTqw A metal song with a hook in the chorus?

ME FIRST & THE GIMME GIMMES

Thursday, May 29th 2014

 

I have 6/8 CDs of theirs. Just looked at iTunes and discovered there’s 2 I don’t have as much as the novelty could get boring after a while, they’re always HILARIOUS with each listen. It’s punk versions of very popular songs. Ever wonder what Simon & Garfunkel would sound like as a punk group, Boy George, Cline Dion or Barry Manilow? Wonder no more! Me First & The Gimme Gimmes have done it for you. Corey turned me onto them and then I realized Chris Shiflette (lead guitar for Foo Fighters) was in this group and I was all in. Their music gives me a good laugh when I listen to it. Rob, Dave, Rydell and I did a sort of punk version of this song http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Gl2QnHNpkA Danielle Bradnam will love this! Here’s one song from each of the 6 albums I own.

Album “Are a Drag” 1999 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=etbQ6DGpCQ8

 

“Blow in the Wind” 2001 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oDQz4FzFrS4

 

“Have a Ball” 1997 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0nIOdJJpTk4

 

“Love Their Country” 2006 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xeSq9gzP18o Dixie Chicks cover!

 

“Take a Break” 2003 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EkXARgL2xaU

 

“Ruin Jonny’s Bar Mitzvah” 2004 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q4xFkcjMamU

 

There’s 2 other albums that are going on my list of albums to purchase from iTunes immediately

THE MAYFIELD FOUR

Wednesday, May 28th 2014

 

Reading Rainbow? Bring it back!

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/readingrainbow/bring-reading-rainbow-back-for-every-child-everywh

 

RIOB tackles why we hate certain music.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FfTMlpE2JiM WARNING!

I agree music is subjective. Not everyone will like one genre, or the same group. That would be boring! I don’t listen to Rap/Hip Hop, if I did I’d go straight to Kanye West. If he releases a “Greatest Hits” album, I’ll be in the line-up to buy it!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PsO6ZnUZI0g Yes, I like this song and haven’t really disliked any of his singles. Best singer? I don’t care how big a singers vocal range is. Singers, that I know of who were missed in the discussion of “Best singer”. Nat King Cole. AWESOME VOICE!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mae_NJ_12sc

 

Any art is selfish, in a good way. Let me explain. If you’re doing some type of art, you do it for yourself, if it catches on you can make money from it buy selling your art to like minded people! If it doesn’t catch on with other people, keep making it for yourself, because YOU won’t be doing something you don’t take pleasure in. Why do I like heavy music for the most part? I don’t know, I just do.

 

The Mayfield Four, the singer was Myles Kennedy, his first group I believe from way back when. Now famous for singing in Alter Bridge and with Slash. The Mayfield 4 made 2 albums that I know of. I saw them live once. In order of appearance at the show was The Mayfield 4, The Watchmen and Big Wreck as headliners. I think that or some other Big Wreck concert was wear my hearing started going. I would ware ear plugs for 2 songs then take them out since I was unable to hear the higher notes with them in. I have very little hearing in my right ear because of this.

 

Anyways, back on topic. Only the 2nd album is available on iTunes. The first album is very rare, I had to download it for free years ago or it was on amazon.ca for $150 or so. You can find the songs on youtube.com though. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XT5YuYt0dIU one of my favourite songs.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ET3LggJEwI0

 

This album “Second Skin” I found on iTunes!

MATTHEW GOOD/MATTHEW GOOD BAND

Wednesday, May 28th 2014

 

Why don’t I have a child? I’m flat out terrified, scared, petrified of having to raise a child and highly doubt myself as a father. Kim would be a FANTASTIC mother though. I love my friends kids. I play with them and teach them bad habits, then they go home and become a full time job for their parents. This is something I NEED to get over. I wanted children before, on the other hand I don’t want to watch my child go through something like I did. I don’t want to feel completely helpless.

 

Cancer is not genetic. It coincidentally is common on my mother side of the family. Grandma, Me, Grandpa and my Aunt in Winnipeg. My aunt is on to a tougher chemo therapy and feeling terrible at the moment. Her feet feel like they’re burning, they’re peeling and her mouth is full of sores, it hurts when she eats something and she’s sleeping quite a bit. I slept for most of 2008, but I didn’t have any peeling or sores.

 

Apparently my back was so sore in 2008 Kim couldn’t even touch my toes without me screaming in pain. I was on a pain medication, my chiropractor came, I had acupuncture, and finally a cortisone shot right into my spine that worked. My first of 7 cortisone shots.

 

I had a really good talk with my dad over lunch with him! I told him what I thought about being a father. He told me I’d be a better father than him. That would be very hard to top! My parents are nothing short of FANTASTIC!!!

 

Matthew Good Band & Matthew Good. Matthew Good Band came first and released 6 albums. They blew up on their 4th album “Underdogs” they were everywhere! I even saw Matthew Good interviewed on the CBC news. They did some alternative rock and some quiet mood music and the bulk of it I liked! This is from the “Underdogs” album released in 1997. FYI HE HAS A POTTY MOUTH!!!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B7xwxWftzMc

 

“Beautiful Midnight” is my favourite album of theirs, released in 1998. Yes I love this song and Rob, Dave, Rydell and I played this along with 30 or more songs?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wnQ-Ixnqpe8

 

Then the 2001 release “Audio of Being” was the final album from the Matthew Good Band.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aw30TrAv8rg

 

Here’s 2 hits they had that were softer yet awesome from “Underdogs” and “Beautiful Midnight”, yes he’s Canadian. From B.C. I believe.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_hHoufAF4_Q

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QUdDfgnTBXU

 

Matthew Good as a solo artist was pretty hit and miss for me. These are two of his solo songs I enjoy.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1CsD4TTYKdA

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NLPdSzQgwJA

 

I stopped following him after his first 2 solo albums, just wasn’t for me, most of it anyways. If I don’t like 80% of an album I don’t buy it! I don’t buy a song here and a song there on iTunes only bonus songs on a Greatest Hits album or a Deluxe Version of an album, other than that it’s an entire album or nothing because I most likely won’t listen to it.
