FOO FIGHTERS & BIG WRECK

Wednesday, October 29th 2014

Both releasing albums in the same year! AWESOME! Big Wreck’s “Ghosts” was released in June & Foo Fighters “Sonic Highways” will be released November 10th! There’s 2 of my top 5 or 10 albums for 2014. By the time FF release their album anybody watching the HBO series will have heard 4 of the 8 songs on the album.

Gene Simmons claims rock is dead, and he’s always right……………NOT! Only took him 23 years to realize marriage isn’t a bad thing. He’s a great father, an OK husband & probably a good friend. He doesn’t have ESP though. KISS has inspired many musicians, including Dave Grohl. I’ve never really been a KISS fan, but the movie “Detroit Rock City” isn’t bad.

I love this group!!

If you ask me, strings can dramatically improve most songs! They should be used as often as solos & high notes. Only if the song calls for it.

Masterpiece review of “Welcome to my Nightmare” by the, oh so fantastic, ALICE COOPER!

Kim calls me the “Human iPod” for a good reason. When I was in the Wascana Rehabilitation Center, my exercise therapist would play the radio. Someone would ask her who is the artist or group on the radio. My therapist would ask me if I knew & 99.999999% of the time I’d be correct. Once I heard more of the song. I have a pile of useless music trivia in my noggin’. I just looked at my iTunes and it tells me there’s 1313 albums on there. Some of that’s Kim’s, but most of it’s mine. I don’t buy a song here and a song there. I buy full album if I like 70%-80% of the album. I don’t listen or need radio. All of my music info now comes from facebook. First it was Much Music, then Much More Music, FM Radio, now facebook and youtube.

Why did this turn into a music blog? Because “music is a BIG @#$%#$& deal”-Dave Grohl
“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
