BIRTHDAY GIFT

Tuesday, September 16th 2014

No, it’s not my birthday today. My birthday is in January. My gift, from my parents, arrived on Monday. The Alter Bridge X box set. After many delays it’s here. 4 vinyl albums, personal engraving, coffee table book (ottoman) in our case, & 27 Blu-rays, DVDs and CDs. Who’s Alter Bridge? Are you a hermit? Drummer, bass player and guitarist from Creed. Don’t go dumping on them. Their singer isn’t Scott Stapp of Creed. It’s Myles Kennedy, who? He did the vocals for the movie “Rockstar” featuring Mark Wahlburg. He’s the guy who gets on stage at the end of the movie. He not only has an incredible tenor voice, he also plays jazz guitar. If you like them or not, but you should at least know of them after 10 years and 4 studio albums. He’s also the singer for Slash’s solo project.

Right there’s satellite radio now, so you can listen to only stuff you like and never discover newer bands or artists. FANTASTIC! Why not just take your iPod in the vehicle? If you have an iPod, why pay for radio or vice versa?

I get all of my music news from the internet. I don’t listen to any radio. I either own it or hate it, every song. Kim calls me the human iPod, fair enough, I know TONS of useless music trivia! That will get me far in life……….NOT!

Here’s a few tunes from Alter Bridge I know the first one was on the radio…

I was flipping through the big binder with the 4 vinyl albums and the 27 discs. There’s a TON of stuff, interviews, documentarys, webisodes, etc.

Initially it was supposed to be shipped January 6th but there was bad weather in the winter, a 3rd party in charge of the coffee table book that didn’t seem to be doing anything, etc. Eventually everything was given to the one company who got their stuff done. Both hand stitched book and binder. Thanks mom & dad!

Megadeth go back to the day.

Why did this turn into a music blog? Because “music is a BIG @#$%#$& deal”-Dave Grohl
“Complaining won’t solve anything. If you want something done your way, just do it yourself!”
“Don’t try to please everyone, it CAN’T happen”
“Learn something from your mistakes and don’t do them again”
“I feel good about the good things and bad about the bad things”-David Eric Grohl
