HAPPY TURKEY DAY USA

Thursday, November 26th 2014

I expect today & tomorrow to be very slow music news days. Since today is American Thanksgiving day?

Soundgarden released a 3 CD album on Monday & as I listen to it more, the 2nd album of mostly cover songs I quite enjoy. I like to know who was inspired to make music by a previous musician?

Does this really mean Lamb of God is working on another album for 2015?

Tremonti, Muse, Stone Sour, Halestorm & Tool all but confirmed to be in the studio with a 2015 release & possibly Lamb of God & Queens of the Stone Age (who stated they would be in the studio this fall much earlier this year). Gene Simmons says “Rock is dead” though……….& he knows everything about everything. He can be a decent person but on the reality show that’s not how he was port raid to the public! If there’s money in some opportunity he’s in!

If all of these albums are released next year, it will be a great year for me! I’m still listening to Queens of the Stone Age’s 2013 album (…Like Clockwork) as well as Foo Fighters “Sonic Highways” , Ed Sheeran, Linkin Park, Big Wreck, Trivium, etc. Whatever I can cram in, in 24 hours!

There are still 3 albums to come out this year that I’m waiting to hear. Can’t remember 1 of them at the moment. The Smashing Pumpkins on December 9th & Fall Out Boy set for preorder on December 15th I don’t plan on preordering these 2 albums, I want to make sure I like 80% of each album. I really don’t buy a song here & there, I prefer to have the entire album.

Does anyone other than me miss holding a CD in their hand? CDs take up physical space, that I don’t have. So digital music is fine, even better in my case living in a condo. I still buy the odd one though. Blu-rays & DVDs I still purchase since we don’t have the highest internet speed. We’ve bought some movies from iTunes yet they freeze up? It takes 3 hours to watch a 2 hour movie on iTunes, bought or rented?

Heart playing “Stairway to Heaven” at Led Zeppelin’s Hall of Fame induction, and then they were sued for this song?

A typical Canadian tour I can’t go to! I’d have to fly or spend a minimum of 2 days in a vehicle to see this.

A more in depth look at Scott Stapp’s (Creed singer) life since October. He slipped off the path to sobriety.

Why is this still a topic of interest? People need to get over the FREE album U2 released!
http://www.nme.com/news/u2/81379 Would it be better if they just kept making albums that sound like “The Joshua Tree” & sent it out for free? You can’t please everyone all of the time.

Wu-Tang Clan reunite on Letterman after 21 years. I don’t know much, if anything about rap/hip hop?

Jimi Hendrix would have turned 72 this year.

Nirvana’s induction to the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame

Corey Taylor of Slipknot and Stone Sour got it right! No such thing as a guilty pleasure!

Everybody’s favourite band at the moment, U2!

Why am I not surprised that some musicians want to be paid for making music?

Tom Petty on his time with the “Traveling Wilburys”

I still listen to the album “Sonic Highways” by Foo Fighters once or twice a day & Live’s 2014 album “The Turn” fairly often.

This is life in Canada. A lot like Buffalo is at the moment. It only lasts about 5 months or more!

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