Halestorm love ’em or hate ’em they’ve broken records on the music charts. That being said, Britney Spears was rocking the top of the music charts back in her day?

Can we call him will.i.am & not Billy? I think there’s a HUGE chance that will.i.am has had more success. If I had to choose it would be a nano second, hands down Smashing Pumpkins!

This is great but Dave Grohl didn’t even finish high school, he seems to be doing OK.

This is likely due to the fans wanting more of the ’80s sound of Metallica & iTunes.

Brewster got a trim on Saturday morning, now he looks like a bag of “Skin & Bones” we can count his ribs when he gets a trim. Either way he makes me feel under dressed!

Saturday night! DAG NAM IT! Early ’90s stuff

Or we could go older? This will make my Aunt Joan feel even older

Sunday Morning

Why am I reporting on 10 weird Marilyn Manson moments? ONLY 10?????
http://loudwire.com/10-unforgettable-marilyn-manson-moments/

What Slash does admire about Axl Rose. Coincidence it’s a short video? I never really got into Guns n’ Roses. I bought “Appetite for Destruction” but only enjoyed at most 2 songs. Too ’80s for me. Sounded a bit too much like ’80s hair metal to me. The Riders finally stopped playing this song from 1987!!!! Way to live in the past Saskatchewan Roughriders. I guess we did win the ’89 Grey Cup (2nd)! It’s been replaced with this song from 2013.

I prefer the second/newer song but you can’t make everyone happy all of the time & it’s not like I have season tickets for the music. Maybe play country music, not my thing really but I would think at least 60% or more of the crowd would appreciate ?

Classic Rock’s tracks of the week.

If you’re Bruno Mars & you start at 10, where do you go from there?

11 if you’re “Spinal Tap”, but I think Bruno just went to 50 like in “The Princess Bride”

Anyone remember “Jason Gideon” from “Criminal Minds” played by Mandy Patinkin? He also played “Inigo Montoya” in The Princess Bride.

A little “EW” with Jimmy Fallon & Ariana Grande

Queens of the Stone Age released their 4th album 10 years ago. I still listen to all of their albums since the 3rd one was released with Dave Grohl playing drums on it & their latest release from 2013. This was THE song for me on “Lullabies to Paralyze” 10 years ago.

Sneak Peek at the Tremonti single on iTunes Tuesday @ 12:00am Eastern time.

As a dedicated Foo Fighters fan I’d love to see new material & I’m sure they will continue releasing new albums. I think casual fans might enjoy if they just preformed new material & released live bootlegs to concert goers?

Why is racism still an issue along with fair pay for women, same sex marriage, etc? The world is changing/evolving people get with it. It’s a new year/day, stop living in the past already.
