I fell asleep to “Megadeth” new album “Dystopia” then I put on “Trivium” the album “Vengeance Falls”

I exercised to”Anthrax” all on shuffle.

New “Anthrax” album on Friday with this tune as the first of two singles that are out.

It’s on Facebook if you prefer.

I looked into streaming music sites a bit. If you stop paying the fee or unsubscribe from it, your music goes away also, that’s the reason as to why I don’t care much for streaming music. I pay more but I own the music. The bulk of my music comes from iTunes, although I do purchase the odd CD about once or twice a year. Unless you purchase a CD at a concert, the artist(s) makes pennies on a sale. Buy a ticket to the concert, buy a CD, or buy some merchandise while you’re there. That’s how musicians make money. It’s likely not enough for bands that started their career in the 2010s.

30 years ago Monday, “Ozzy” released “The Ultimate Sin”

“Lamb of God” shared it……………….

“Of Mice & Men” announce the release of “The Full Circle Story” documentary. I’ve heard their name many times, but not their music? This is just a random song I found on youtube.

Unless this concert was $20.00 & across the street, I’d go for “Alter Bridge” & then leave. I have 2 “Disturbed” CDs & never listen to them. I’m not in my early 20s anymore.

Perhaps a new “Trivium” shirt? Oh, nope! I got one at the show on February 12th.

25 unforgettable speeches at the Academy Awards

“Lamb of God” & “Anthrax” together? That would be an incredible show for me!!!!

Probably not the best way to force the Toronto Blue Jays’ brass. Video inside. What a way to start the first day of spring training. Only mandatory for pitchers & catchers, but Bautista decided to bring up his contract publically on the first day.

Great distraction for the season……………thanks………………………José!!!

Vocals isolated for “Lynyrd Skynyrd’s” ‘Simple Man’

I just can’t get into “Mastodon” I’ve tried, but no success. Their latest release is decent.

Loudwire’s 10 best metal albums of 1986

This is on the list, but it’s not number 1.

“Finger Eleven” shared this…

Mark Tremonti reveals details & album release date for his solo album “Dust”

Live review of “Halestorm” in Paris

I think I’ve heard 1 or 2 of her songs? I totally agree with her stance for rape victims

Nirvana drum chronology in 5 minutes

No “Incesticide” though…….

“Romania’s Got Talent”

Eddie Vedder returns/preforms at former high school. Video inside the link.

Is Slash working on a new “Guns n’ Roses” album?

Donald Trump mash up with “Game of Thrones”

I got up, had my breakfast juice, made coffee, & filled my water bottle. Wrote part of this post & went back to the living room. Somehow I dumped an entire coffee all over the place. You’d be amazed at how far one cup of coffee can spread! It was black coffee, I never put sugar or cream in my coffee. I had to wipe it up with a Swiffer wet pad after a bunch of tea towels. The house smelled like coffee for a bit, now it’s gone.


Fell asleep to “Meg Myers” the album “Sorry”. Woke up to this song in particular “I Mother Earth” the song “Meat Dreams” from the album “The Quicksilver Meat Dream”


Today’s workout was brought to you by “Jamiroquai” a ‘Greatest Hits’ I made on iTunes mostly from the “High Times” collection on iTunes.


Eagles singer Glenn Frey dies at the age of 67


Director, Cameron Crow, (Almost Famous) looks back at his 1975 Rolling Stone cover story on The Eagles.


I’ll state this up front. The ’80s hard rock & metal in L. A. was not at all what I grew up on, or heard at that time. A few of these I do like!


Interview with Tremonti drummer, Garrett Whitlock.


Wait……………….Sting AND Peter Gabriel AWESOME! Probably hundreds of dollars for a ticket as well as traveling.


Yet more dribble about the “Guns n’ Roses” reunion


Green Day” are back in the studio. Can they make an album like anything pre American Idiot?


20 years of “Foo Fighters” in a 5 minute drum chronology! Really Good! Not all songs are played but a large helping of them are.


Pearl Jam” announce 2016 tour


Might as well stop bickering and doing thousands of scientific tests on GMO’s. Since the anti GMO groups have asked for another test, since the tests haven’t shown more facts supporting organic food?

Yes I had cancer, but “I’m still standing” I eat more vegetables & fruit than ever before. I can count on one hand the number of times I’ve been sick, & I don’t need 5 fingers to count it, so I’m pro GMOs. You eat what you want, & I’ll eat what I want. Don’t believe me, believe the farmers & scientists.


Long debate, close to two hours long, but worth watching. If you’re against it, that’s fine by me. What are you doing to prevent GMO usage?

We tried to grow corn in our previous garden. It had the texture of chewing gum. It could be that we did something wrong or that it was organic? I don’t which honestly? I do know we wasted time, a little money & threw out the corn after a few bites. In this debate, cheese & insulin for diabetics were the first GMO products used.


I hope this never happens, I don’t think the result would be good for fans, actors, Stan Lee, or JJ Abrams/George Lucas. Epic fail.


Halestorm acoustic LANGUAGE!!!!


Big Wreck” shared it…

I got the Halestorm album last night after watching a disappointing Blue Jays game

Halestorm album review! I was tired & only heard roughly 5 or 6 songs last night when I got it. For now I can tell you it’s a VERY diverse album. I think I fell asleep to a ballad played on piano?

“Guitar Hero” is coming back with it’s first video game in 5 years. That game was my only reason for buying a PS2. I had the first 3 guitar hero games, a baseball game & God of War. Maybe a few others? That’s also the game that got me into ‘Lamb of God’. It also had an ‘In Flames’, ‘The Allman Brothers’, & “Free Bird” by Lynyrd Skynyrd. Great way to learn bad habits on a real guitar.

3 part interview/article with a member of ‘The Agonist’

Genesis reunion from 1982 with Peter Gabriel.

This song that’s probably been covered by a few more bands

Jack White will perform spontaneously in five states with tickets going for $3.00

‘Celebrity Death Match’ is coming back to MTV2. I think they made a video game for X-Box with the claymation figures.

Hard rock bands that will change the game in 2015. I highly doubt there will be a change.

‘Shinedown’ album near completion

‘Barenaked Ladies’ in the studio. Album release set as June 2nd.

This year as far as music for me is really looking good! But Gene Simmons says “Rock is Dead” & he’s God of everything, so I hear?

I agree, get rid of the gimmick make up ‘KISS’! If people like your music they will go to a KISS concert make up or no make up!

Celebrating ‘The Who’ concert announced. Thank you CSI!

16 years ago “Burn the Priest” now known as ‘Lamb of God’ released their first self titled album ‘Burn the Priest’. I’m not a fan of that album in the least. They got better with each release after that up to the album “Sacrament”

“I really, really, really, really, really, really, really, like….” this album

Aerosmith announce tour

Foo Fighters want to get weird. Live show of the B-Sides recorded? Wait until it’s released then tour for that album? I think that’s different, as long as they don’t “doctor” the live album like “KISS” did?

Rex Brown, former Pantera bassist, is auctioning Pantera items he gathered during his time in Pantera.

Finger Eleven tour kick off. I think fans would at the very least would like a GOOD album. The last one was a tiny step up and the one before it I will never consider it as a F11 album.

35 years ago ‘Judas Priest’ released “British Steel”

My status update I did my work out at 11:00am 300 crunches, much better yoga, 20 push ups & some planking. Oh, & a “wrestle” with Brewster, my right arm against his entire body. I get him on his back & scratch his belly and I swear he looks like he’s having “….the happiest seizure of his life…” Sorry couldn’t find the one at the end of the movie?

Songs I like. “Dishwalla” I only own 2 of their CDs & that’s all. I’m pretty sure I got these on an 11 CDs for $0.01 from Columbia House or BMG? In the ’90s.
