Today’s workout was brought to you by “I Mother Earth’s” album ‘The Quicksilver Meat Dream’

Ian Fletcher Thornley’s solo album!


Like him or hate him, he’s one of Canada’s National Treasures!


13 years ago Thursday Pearl Jam released their 7th album “Riot Act”


Well that’s 3 I Mother Earth singles & 1 single by singer Brian Byrne for a charity.

Singer Brian Byrne’s single for suicide prevention.

Franz, just get over it? Talk to Dave Grohl about it? It happened in 1999, & yes that’s something that should not happen over the phone.


The only video he appeared in.

Dave Mustaine (Megadeth) will be interviewed on radio this weekend!


Why would “Iron Maiden” need another guitar player?


Will they or wont the original “Guns n’ Roses” reunited?


Elton John meeting with Vladimir Putin?


“Royal Blood” do covers!


Does everyone get to share their opinion online about a “Guns n’ Roses” reunion? I know a guy, who knows a guy, who knows a guy, who has a cousin, who knows a guy, who knows a guy who says it might happen?


Songs I like, “Tom Cochrane” Just the 1 album my father bought in 1991. That’s the year it was released anyways, I assume he bought it that year.

Why did this turn into a music blog? Because “music is a BIG ^%$#@&*^* DEAL”-Dave Grohl

On the previous link to this blog I was EXTREMELY rude. I apologize & take full responsibility for all of that. I don’t want to be that person & I never have been that person before. Thank you all for not abandoning me! You’re all AMAZING individuals! I can’t change the past, if I could I would do so in a heartbeat, THANK YOU!! I would have “unliked” myself on facebook & reported my email as SPAM. To be clear nobody did anything wrong, other than me! I can forgive & forget everyone for everything but when it comes to myself acting like that, remembering that is how I learn. Whatever I do wrong stays with me. It’s in the past & thank you all for being the bigger person! You’re all really AWESOME!

Today’s workout was brought to you by the letter “O” as in Opeth’s album “Blackwater Park”

Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” done in the style of Disturbed.


Jimmy Fallon & Justin Timberlake do ‘History of Rap 6”. Same show that Ellen Degeneres & Jimmy Fallon have a lip sync battle!


This type of thing has happened to many candidates in the recent past George Bush Jr used Foo Fighters “Times Like These”, without permission, for his campaign. Foo Fighters toured with his opponent instead of taking the song away from Bush.


Mark Tremonti article/interview on the current tour & Alter Bridge plans, etc………



Iron Maiden began in 1975, but now there’s a problem with “Eddie” their mascot who appears on most of their album covers? How about not looking at it? That would be easier than trashing them.


Third Ion had another review. The review was in French & my French is terrible. If you don’t use it, you lose it.

I love John Oliver’s “Last Week Tonight”. I almost want HBO, just far too expensive LANGUAGE!!!!

Muse’s album “Drones” was just very disappointing to me. How do you go from this to that? Good thing the music is good! LANGUAGE IN THE 2ND VIDEO!

Pentatonix “Back to school” Macy’s commercial

Halestorm guitar solo contest

New Apple TV box. They’ll release & a month later they’ll release another, & forget about the issues it may cause. “Just like…” they did with the release of Apple Music & forgot about iTunes Match users


I love I Mother Earth!!! Singer Brian Byrne shared this….

Damon Albarn contributed to the upcoming Adele album. He’s known from the ’90s, singer for Blur & The Gorillaz.


40 years ago KISS released the album “Alive”


Metallica footage from Russia

Donald Trump uses R. E. M. for campaign soundtrack. Not cool with R. E. M.

Look at that 2 times on my computer in one day, down in the basement, WOO HOO!


Is every one’s email trying to be more like face book?  Gmail is.  There are people who want nothing to do with face book.  Why does google continue to make these changes? Google+ stop it already!  I know who uses face book and who doesn’t. I don’t want to pick through my friends on gmail, give it up already!


Yes, it’s sad to hear about anyone’s death.  But if you know that person, a spouse, family member, or friend, and you know they’re struggling with an addiction of a hard drug like heroin, cocaine or crystal meth, you should expect an over dose or death.  Andy Wood (to be the singer for what is now Pearl Jam) who wrote the album “Temple of the Dog” in his memory

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VUb450Alpps Kurt Cobain, Whitney Houston was dabbling with heavy drugs at the time I think and now the character Finn from Glee which I’m not a big fan of the show at all.  If someone is struggling with that type of addiction, death or over dose should be no surprise and also will take time to deal with.


I Mother Earth, one of my favourite Canadian bands from the ’90s.  They got back together in 2012 I think it was and of course skipped over Saskatchewan as usual.  They’ve only been to Regina once since their debut in ’92.  The Canadian answer to grunge in Seattle.  The albums in order are “Dig”, “Scenery & Fish”, “Blue Green Orange” and in 2004 “The Quicksilver Meat Dream”  most famous for the “Scenery & Fish” album that had this big hit on it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C_1QAC_6Zuc


Then changed the singer for the next 2 albums with this song as the first single off of “Blue Green Orange” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zMObYc4yNfQ My favourite recorded song with Brian Byrne as the singer.  They got back together last year to tour and release one new song.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8UBO_kc9XxI I haven’t seen them this go around…………….yet, here’s hoping!
