Don’t feel as though you need to open every link.

I fell asleep to “Ed Sheeran” the new album “Divide” followed by “Elton John” his “Greatest Hits”

 

I used to read somewhat, not a ton though.  It’s a good thing I didn’t.  I can read fine, it’s just incredibly slow.  With only one eye, I end up reading the same line repeatedly.  I got through 4 pages of a novel & at the pace I was going it would’ve taken me a month to read it.  I tried a Kindle since my parents had a spare.  I could make the printing as large as I needed, which REALLY helped.  I don’t think the book I’m reading or was reading really grabbed me.  It’s the memoirs of Lamb of God vocalist Randy Blythe.  It’s about him being arrested as a murder suspect Russia, while on tour and, a more than crooked judicial system.  I think I left off in the 2nd chapter & a lot of it I knew already.

 

Kim went out yesterday she HATES baseball!  April 3rd is the day we will part for the summer.  She can watch what she likes on one TV & me on the other.  It’s going to be awkward when there’s company with 3 guys, spooning watching baseball.  Nah, we like each other we’ll keep the other around, we just don’t watch as much TV together after the shows end for the summer & I’m glued to baseball & CFL.

It’s been almost 4 months with this screwed up nerve.  2 nights ago, I couldn’t find a comfortable.  It’s not serious pain, just enough to not do anything to bother it.  When I do, I regret it terribly.

I laid down for a nap on the couch after the ball game since Kim was still out.  I was in & out of sleep, listening to music.

MY FRIDAY!!!

OK, I’m at 51 or 52 subscribers now you do the work please? If I see this 100 times that’s fine, please spread the word?

ALWAYS come to the site, you might be missing something in the email? There are multiple youtube links on every blog. I use “Google Chrome” on my desktop PC. “Safari” works on my mother mac laptop as a browser if you come to the site. Facebook links & youtube links do not work or even appear on my mother’s email, but she can see EVERYTHING when she comes to the site itself.

I can’t see who comes to the site but I can see how many times a country views the site. From now on I recommend you come to the site. Consider the emails as a facebook notification that there’s a new post.

Kim has an E.D.O. tomorrow. That means no blog on Friday this week. Be sure to watch the Rock It Out Blog on every Friday especially. Really good discussions on Fridays! I’ll be here checking email & facebook tomorrow.

Rock It Out Blog from Wednesday. Yes, every musician with a roadie should be really thankful for their roadie(s). That’s something I don’t miss, hauling my guitar amplifier & guitars home at 2:00am after a show. Roadies have a difficult, thankless job, so difficult there’s a roadie school!

Here you go rap fans “Run the Jewels”. Rap & I don’t really get along, so I can’t tell you anything about it, sorry?

In Flames, “Take this knife”

That’s still not as bad as the snare drum on their “St. Anger” album

I’m still a U2 fan, just not a hard core fan like I once was.
http://www.rollingstone.com/music/videos/watch-u2-perform-sweetest-thing-with-bono-impersonator-20150527 This song first appeared on the 1980 release of “Boy” then again on the album “Under a Blood Red Sky” released in 1983.

Now heavier music is my thing.

Summer’s changing landscape for rock music through the decades.

IF Kerry King ever learns how to guitar solo on key, then I’ll be a Slayer fan.

Good grief he’s dead let him R.I.P. & leave his family alone. No amount of money can undo whatever happened in the past whether it’s true or not.

Rock music is still here, just kinder. Brand new rock band doing quite well for themselves, Royal Blood not metal, rock!

Look at that! Third Ion above Pantera’s Greatest Hits album currently sitting at number 14! Can I ask what the heck is Five Finger Death Punch doing on a metal chart, or any chart for that matter?

Dave Grohl’s facebook page shared it, so here it is I think this is my favourite track on the new album.

I asked a question yesterday about Tool & got zero responses, that tells me you either missed it, don’t like Tool, which is fine or you’re not reading this. It’s interactive, so I’d really like some feedback. If this site is just for me, there’s really no point in me writing it. This is more for other people, not me.

Man I’m old! 24 years ago Smashing Pumpkins released “Gish”. 1991 I was 11 years old & hated “grunge” music at the time.

Songs I like. “HIM” courtesy of Elka Blahbledyblahblah! I think I’d have to go with the original Chris Isaak version.
