REALLY? You had to audition!? Bahahahahahaha! In all honesty they do have really good voices. Oddly enough the cover band I was in during 2000-2003 covered this song. I’d strum the chords & sing the song as written for one verse & chorus, then everybody would join in & we’d play it as a punk song.

Thank you Apple! BOOO! Another site to rent music from. Where can we purchase music from, …………………..wait………………..you made iTunes & royally screwed it up. Oh but look at you, you’ve created the 17th streaming music site, good for you, we need more options to rent music from!

I think “Five Crooked Lines”, the new album by Finger Eleven, will be closer to the sound of their first 3 albums. Even they admit they went through an experimental bit with the last 2 albums.

I have it on pre-order with a 3rd song “Gods of Speed” which sounds even more like the first 2 albums!

I also pre-ordered ‘Highly Suspect’ & got 5 songs with my pre-order.

I am pretty excited about this ‘Lamb of God’ album!

All of that’s why Kim has set a limit for me on iTunes.

Of course Dave Grohl was terrified watching the death of a good friend in ‘Montage of Heck’ the Kurt Cobain bio pic.

Kids get same sex marriage, lots of people do & lots of people don’t? It shouldn’t be so hard to accept it?

Same sex marriage I have no problem with at all. The problem I have is with the USA’s legal system. Why did it take so long for a powerful, influential, progressive country to pass this human right? “Oh, gays can’t get married! How about another gun?” At least they got something right, but now comes the backlash against same sex marriage & same sex couples. Maybe keep quiet & you may learn something? If you’re not a family, how is it affecting you personally?

Story’s about Rush.

That’s enough for today! I’ll catch you on Thursday!

Songs I like. “Kill Devil Hill” Rex from Pantera is in this group. It even sounds a bit like Pantera.

KILL DEVIL HILL

Wednesday, May 14th 2014

 

Is this not great https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xtlc9zD-4Mc not exceptionally heavy! Justin Bender of Into Eternity, Magnetic and now Third Ion! Can’t say I was big on Magnetic, but I do like Into Eternity and Third Ion sounds very promising!

 

Metallica goes acoustic with cover songs and I still can’t stand them! Way to ruin some legendary songs! Especially a tune by The Beatles.

Maynard James Keenan celebrates his 50th birthday! Singer of Tool, A Perfect Circle and Puscifer.

http://loudwire.com/maynard-james-keenan-celebrates-50th-birthday-in-style/ No it’s time to take a short break and make a Tool album. Or should we wait until 2016 and wait an entire decade?

 

I’m quite sure that Rob Wirtz’s son, Ben, has found his hero. I’ll have to type out what Ben wrote for his homework, very cool! “My dad has a giant base guitar. My dad ystue be in a band.” That’s pretty cool if you ask me!

 

Kill Devil Hill. Metal music, not everyones flavour of the week, I get it. Metal music can be annoying to a lot of people! Any music can be annoying to others. Every Roughrider home game I go to, they play this from ’87? I think it’s time for a change.

I think they should play country music and make the majority of the crowd happy. Maybe some Air Supply and make most of us miserable. Is this a better choice?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B55XbHYJmU0 Probably not, but it would fit with the fireworks.

 

I have the two albums from iTunes of Kill Devil Hill. Corey got me into them. One from 2012 and one from 2013. I assume they’re from the USA, but I’m not sure? Here’s 2 tracks from each album, in order of album release.

Remind anyone of Pantera?

 

I find Jack White overrated, yet others love him and that’s fine with me. I never really got into The White Stripes. My musical Holy Trinity is Dave Grohl, Ian Thonley and Myles Kennedy. Followed by the greats Beethoven, Bach and Mozart. Who is your favourite musician?

 

When I was in the WRC, I would have exercise therapy. My therapist would have the radio on most of the time on 94.5 Jack FM. Kim called me the human iPod. Everyday someone would ask “Who’s this?” I was the one that would know and the questions were soon directed at me. “It’s Fleetwood Mac, Dexy’s Midnight Runners, Bon Jovi, etc.” Or whoever was on the radio at the time. I’ve got a lot of useless music trivia in my head. ’90s and older music, not current music though.
