Disclaimer “This is not to be taken in a rude tone & is not aimed at any particular reader….ever!”

I put this through email first & realized not everyone likes email? OK, fair enough. I put it on Facebook as a link to the full blog on the website. Please come to the website for the full blog. Whether you get it on facebook, another blog on http://www.wordpress.com, or an email. Depending on your browser, the multiple http://www.youtube.com links will be open so you know what is coming to you before you listen to it. Otherwise I look like an idiot? I put it on facebook yet 11 people came to the site yesterday, twice? 24 views by 11 people? This is stuff I like that I want to share with you. If you’re not coming to the site there’s a REALLY GOOD CHANCE you’re missing something, & I’m the one here with ink on my face. I was a printer, & yes that happened a few times. Bazinga! Some days I’d come home looking like I made a half assed effort to be a Smurf? Why blue? I don’t know….

I’m not angry in any way, I know print doesn’t always come across in the proper tone. 11 people looked at the site out of, what is 117 to 120 subscribers I know 2 or 3 have doubled between facebook & email. That’s just underwhelming. That’s why it’s meant to be interactive, music has been something really meaningful for me since I joined the school band in grade 6, I’m 35 years old now. I understand that what I listen to is not necessarily what others want to hear. If 11 people read this a day to me this is for me alone. I’m not going necessarily promote an event or other individual music related events I’m not attending. So please come to the website? You don’t have to click on every link, only if the description interests you. Did I do something wrong yesterday? Do I smell? I’ve had my monthly shower, I should be clean & odor free until mid-July. I can see the email address and the person subscribing on facebook, or the title of the blog by whoever on this blog site. Don’t be afraid, I don’t bite.

I know that the cool peeps in Albania came to the site. Yes, I know a family in Albania! I get a world map to see what country has read this however many times. Can’t see who from that country has read it, I just know how many times it has been viewed in that country.

Josh Homme (singer of Queens of the Stone Age is back with The Eagles of Death Metal). Filling the hiatus Queens of the Stone Age are on at the moment. Yes he plays drums for EODM. Yes that Dave Grohl at the bar & Jack Black as the bartender.

Very interesting article about the music industry. It’s 9 pages I’ve only read the first 2. I’ve bookmarked it to read the rest later. Since I’m hooked on reading it after the first paragraph & speaking about the Napster lawsuit with Metallica that was filed 6 months prior to Linkin Parks debut album, “Hybrid Theory”.

Rolling Stone magazine’s 45 best albums of the year so far!

Jimmy Page details final Led Zeppelin’s reissues. Once I became a fan it was all about the “Physical Graffiti” album!
http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/jimmy-page-previews-final-zeppelin-reissues-closes-band-vault-20150616

I like ‘Black Sabbath’, but ‘Queen’ & ‘Led Zeppelin’ are my favourite active groups during the ’70s. Queen material from the ’80s was not as good as the ’70s material. More miss than hit for me.

Prince & Stevie Wonder preform together at the White House!!!!! AWESOME!!!!
http://consequenceofsound.net/2015/06/prince-and-stevie-wonder-perform-secret-concert-at-the-white-house/ “I think I just blew your mind, sorry” LANGUAGE & SEXUALLY EXPLICIT MATERIAL! COULD BE VERY OFFENSIVE!!!!

I’m not sure why, but I just got this Rock It Out Blog? LANGUAGE!!!!
http://consequenceofsound.net/video/rock-it-out-blog-do-we-really-need-another-streaming-music-service/

Great & all, I want to own my music not subscribe to a radio station for my entire life. I’m only 35 and I expect to hit 80 at the least? iTunes is really good, I just don’t like how the money is distributed. I don’t have the physical space for vinyl albums or even CDs at this point. CDs have dropped in price significantly to keep pace with iTunes.

As far as the subject on “The Simpsons” go, I stopped watching in my very early teens but they’re still around. I’d rather have WB cartoons like the “Bugs Bunny & Tweety Show” around on re-runs.

Comedians saying the world is too politically correct. I can see both sides, yes it might offend you? If it does don’t watch it? Seems simple to me. A lot of it also doesn’t need to be said, so in that case are you going to judge a person on how they express themselves? In the end it’s very subjective.

A letter from Dave Grohl

I have no sympathy for apple. Nobody needs another streaming music site. You’ve got a really good idea with iTunes, it just needs to be revamped $1.50 per album download to the label & $1.50 to Apple. Then $0.00-$7.00 to the artist. $3.00-$10.00 for 1 album. That’s more than 50% off of what the price for a CD was? Sounds good to me? Anybody at Apple or the label going to come up with music ideas?

When these guys got my attention I thought I’d be a fan. I don’t mind the music, but it just rubs me the wrong way?

Meh! They mention Cherry Cola in here.

I need to slow down on my music purchasing on iTunes. But I am curious as to when the next “Tremonti”, “Alter Bridge” & the solo album by Myles Kennedy is being released? I’m assuming “Tremonti’s” other album he recorded while in studio will be released in the first half of next year? He’d have time to tour that album while Myles Kennedy works on his solo album I’ve been hearing about for the last 4 years?

Songs I like. “Jack Johnson” Our first dance at our wedding was “Better Together” by Jack Johnson! Yes, I’ve made “Banana Pancakes” about 3 times.
