Connie Kaldor at The Exchange in Regina. Almost all of the Chemical Horizon, the band I was in until I got cancer, shows were at The Exchange. A couple of shows were at The Gaslight & The Distrikt. The Distrikt for me was pretty much the same for me as playing at Wembley Stadium for Dave Grohl. I saw so many great bands there! That was probably the most nerve racking experience for me on stage. A “Don’t screw this up” experience. There aren’t many places in Regina for original rock/metal bands to play. The Exchange, The Distrikt (which is no more), The Gaslight & occasionally The Riddel Center at the university. I guess we also played once at The Owl, the university bar, in a battle of the bands thing.

Chester Bennington (Linkin Park singer) on writing/singing with Stone Temple Pilots. I’m waiting for this album to be released this year also. I heard earlier this year they were close to being done recording the album.

Walk off the Earth cover “I Got You Babe”

I enjoy ‘Slayer’. I’d probably listen to more ‘Slayer’ if Kerry King guitar solo’s were in the right key of the rest of the group.

I’ve never heard of “Tame Impala”? Probably because they’re new, put their music on the internet for pennies & don’t tour the entire world.

New artist. I believe he was on The Ellen Degeneres Show earlier this week & I just watched him on last night Conan! Good voice with nothing but an acoustic guitar. I’d likely buy his album & rarely listen to it.

Cool to see 3 young girls play an Ozzy song on The Ellen Degeneres Show. Much better guitar player than I was or will be.

Terrible version of “Vasoline” by Scott Weiland. Yeah the same guy that sang/wrote the song with Stone Temple Pilots. Is he drunk or high or both?

I have an issue on the use of cell phones. When you see a “fail” video on youtube that’s fine, it’s hilarious. In a real life or death situation most people whip out their phone to get it on video? Who the heck stands there taking a video with a cell phone while someone might be dying? Maybe put the phone down & see if you can help? Remember, it’s a phone as well, not just a video camera.

A cover of Foo Fighters’ “Congregation” pretty good too!

Yes this was just weird. A regular season baseball game in Baltimore vs the Chicago White Sox, in a totally empty ball park, attendance 0, nobody! Wasn’t a safe place because of the rioting in Baltimore.
