Do you have a question about stage 4 brain cancer?  Ask if you do!

I fell asleep to “Tool” the album “Lateralus”

I exercised to “Chromeo” two albums on shuffle.


Well I’m still around & this year is exactly the same date & day I was diagnosed with brain cancer 11 years ago.  Tuesday, February 5th 2019 marks 11 years since I was diagnosed, unconscious & full of whatever could help me survive.  I don’t remember anything after Kim came in the back of the ambulance & I said “Everything will be OK sweetie”.  That was a bold prediction on my part!  What did Kim tell my parents?  “He’s not going to die.”

“So far, so good” no flu the week before, no debilitating headache in the back/base of my skull either (knock on wood).  I’m here & I’m not done yet!


As the comments on the www.loudwire.com Facebook page said.  “3 months = 4 years” & “Get your CD players ready”.  Hahahahaha, it’s funny because it’s true!


So, “Tool” is sick of their fans feeling entitled to a new album after the most recent release in 2006.  As a fan & I’m speaking for most of us, we can stop that, when you stop feeding fans false information regarding a release date.

They like to keep it really at shows by not doing an encore, I like that.  If they like to keep it real at live shows, how about keeping it real when it comes to a release date?  I urge “Tool” fans to take this April release date with a grain of salt!  I’ll beLIEve it when it happens!  We were told this album would be released in 2016, 2017, 2018, & now 2019.  With that track record, I don’t trust ANY release date they give.  This is also the last album required on their contract I believe.  I’m confident that this will be their final release, if I’m right.

This album could be anywhere on a scale of 1 – 10.  It’s been hyped up by so many fans waiting for it.  Don’t be alarmed if it doesn’t live up to your standards!



New “Greta Van Fleet” this year!  “Tool” takes 13 years, “Greta Van Fleet” a year later.





“Rage Against the Machine” had disbanded, unfortunately.  They were the only rap/rock group I really liked & still miss.  “Soundgarden” had broken up in 1997.  “Audioslave” was Chris Cornell from “Soundgarden” on vocals with the bass player, drummer, & guitarist from “Rage Against the Machine”.  I was in SIAST when I heard their first single on the radio at school.  3 guys in our SIAST class at the time.  I heard it & got the other 2 to come hear it.  I’m pretty sure all 3 of us were eager to hear it.  “Audioslave” recorded 3 albums, which I thought were really good at the time.  They still are but that was well over 15 years ago.  I still like them, there’s just not much excitement now when I listen to them.  I think I heard they had some stuff recorded with the late Chris Cornell that wasn’t released?

“Soundgarden” from the ‘90s grunge scene in Seattle.  They actually started in 1998.  This is from their 4th of 6 studio albums.  This song was on the album that everyone raves about.


“Rage Against the Machine” who came along in ‘92.


So what does “Audioslave” sound like?  Something completely different.

2002   “Audioslave”


2005   “OUT OF EXILE”


iTunes doesn’t have the next album, I think this is the 7th album that I bought on CD, yet nowhere to be found in the iTunes store?



Please share this, I’m not profiting from this at all.  Word of mouth is the only way of promoting this.
