Cancer update? I’m a 6 years & 4 months cancer free. I’m in a wheelchair, with an eye patch over my left eye to prevent double vision but I’m alive. I fell on Monday. Moved to far forward on the couch to use my transfer pole. Did I hurt myself? No. Will I fall again? Probably. Have I ever hurt myself in a fall? Yes, once or twice out of 10 times. Personally Wheelchair, eye patch……………..both beat the alternative!

Hard rock fans, buy this “Red Dragon” album by Room 333, which is compared to “La Gargola” by Chevelle! https://itunes.apple.com/ca/album/red-dragon/id917967693

Vince Neil (singer Motley Crue) to appear on celebrity “Wife Swap”

I’ve seen U2 live in Alberta on the “Elevation” tour AWESOME! Expensive then & likely more so now?

Jack White is taking some time off.

“The Bloodline” new video. They’re new to me in general?

No, I don’t know “Korn”, I’m not really a fan. I like roughly 2 songs by them. I saw the video below & thought it was the coolest, most interesting video I’d seen since Pearl Jam’s video for “Jeremy”

Rush final tour? Neil Peart gets very sore from playing drums. Sucks that he can’t do something he likes but I guess there comes a day when you’ve got to retire.

Tremonti on new album. Yes, this is old you’ve seen it before.

Why are they so far in to the tour without 1 of the 2 albums released on all websites (not for pre-order on iTunes)? Barenaked Ladies came out of nowhere & already have an iTunes pre-order, a release date, & a tour? I knew more about Tremonti being in the studio than I did about Barenaked Ladies being in the studio & having the recording process going so fast. Is Tremonti going to finish the tour before the album is released? What comes first the chicken or the egg? Who’s the chicken or egg?

The fancy shmancy Alter Bridge box set my mother ordered for me in November of 2013 for my birthday in January of 2014 came last summer/fall. I was lucky. Other people haven’t received anything for an expensive & rare box set (3000 made). Each box set contains multiple DVD interviews, 4 vinyl records, all 4 CDs, a DVD of music videos, a coffee table book & has your name engraved on the front. It was supposed to be released in January of 2014. No wonder those who haven’t received it want a refund.

I like “Clutch” quite a bit!

These are just cool videos. Music is subjective as are the videos. I think the concept of having famous actors in the videos were very smart decisions.

So far Smashing Pumpkins, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, A.D.D. & Halestorm have released their albums. My Morning Jacket will be released on Tuesday. Barenaked Ladies’ will be released on June 2nd. So we’re waiting for Finger Eleven, Into Eternity, Third Ion, Tremonti, Tool & whatever else pop’s up.

By the way, it’s Willie Nelson’s birthday today. I’m assuming he’ll have “special” brownies or cake.

This is why I don’t like physical formats of music, they take up room I don’t have now. Digital music doesn’t take up room, & it’s VERY convenient. Napster beat up rock music. Spotify, Pandora radio, iTunes, etc. finished it off. Rock music isn’t dead, it’s just harder to find now.

If we get rid of streaming & torrent sites, more people will have to pay for music like it should be! Who came up with the idea that anything should be free? Should I go into a restaurant & order steak & lobster & demand that it be free?

Songs I like. “Elvis Costello”

Then “A Perfect Circle” did 1 of about 10 covers of this song by 10 different artists & made it unrecognizable

You’re on your own for the rest of the day. I don’t like being on here that much, sorry.
