Why did this become a music blog? Music is my hobby as was baseball that I watch daily, Blue Jays baseball that is. I listen to a pile of music and I practice my guitar about 2 or more times a week. It’s true what they say about lead singers though. Some random girl completely wasted would approach me after a show and try to get me to go where ever with her. Became more of a pain that I wanted.

 

I always responded with “No, I have a girlfriend”. Dave bailed me out at the Plains Hotel once when I was approached by a drunken/persistent girl. She wouldn’t leave me alone. Dave saw this and called out to me “Hey Chris, would you mind giving me a hand with packing up my drums?” He bailed me out and I immediatelly said “Thank you” and probably went on a rant. It didn’t happen all of the time, maybe 4 times in total.

 

I thought if one of us 4 would go through that it would be Rydell, since he’s so pretty?

Top 10 songs by Led Zeppelin according to the CoS/RIOB.

Of course I disagree. No “Ramble On” or “Immigrant song”?

 

If you pre-order the, on iTunes, June 17th release of “The Hunting Party” by Linkin Park you’ll get this song today along with 2 other tracks from the album.

You all know Nirvana, if not, were you living under a rock during the ’90s? You either love them or hate them. I love all of their CDs from “Bleach” on.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hkEwIemPwWI

 

Then they released “Nevermind” with one of my favourite songs on it. Rob, Rydell, Dave and I played this song. Corey came up on stage to see who could drink the most beer between him and some other girl that was in Engineering at Beerfest in 2002 during this song. Corey won or lost depending on how you look at it? I still love this song! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=teetvAUcG_E

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QECJ9pCyhns I still like pretty much every song they released even this one after Kurt’s death on a “Greatest Hits” album.

BUSH, Formerly known as BUSHx

Monday, February 24th 2014

 

Sorry, my Tuesdays are busy, exercise and Kris from the ABI program comes here to play 2 or 3 games of cribbage with me.  Tomorrow some friends of ours are coming over from a near by town.  I just wanted to finish the “B” section off today and this caps off the “B” section.  I have “Boney M.” it’s just on my Christmas playlist with Nat King Cole, Harry Connick Jr. Twisted Sister, Andrea Boceli and a “Metal Christmas”.

 

Yes, the first band I was in with Rob, Dave and Rydell played the 3 big hits off of the 1st Bush “Sixteen Stone” album.  I did “Glycerine”, we all did “Machine Head” and “Comedown”.  After the 2nd album “Razorblade Suitcase” I thought they just disappeared and we’re releasing the odd single?  Boy was I wrong and I don’t say that often at least not when Kim’s within ear shot!

 

I bought the 2nd album recently.  I also bought the 2011 release “The Sea of Memories” which is a good rock album.

“Machine Head” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bwBDnYj7plQ

 

“Comedown”  Chris Messer always thought the bass line to this song sounded like a Bon Jovi song, it does!   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xS3GiUAvjJ8 the first song I learned to play & sing at the same time!

 

Bon Jovi song with a very similar bass line to it.

I am getting stronger with all of this @#$%&*%$@!@# exercise, I have never felt good afterwards, even in gym class in high school!  I have always felt tired and ready for a nap. 

 

Dave you have to take me out for a drive, no one will let me. I except nothing less than lights and sirens going and that’s a firm request!That’s one of the perks of being in a wheelchair with one good eye and slow reflexes.  I always have Kim, my parents or Mitch to drive me around.  We always get the best parking spot.  I don’t have to drive downtown, and random strangers always hold the door open for me.  A wheelchair has it’s pros and cons.

BUSY WEEKEND, WEATHER PENDING

Friday, November 15th

 

I didn’t do much today other than try desperately to sleep, that didn’t happen.  We have tickets to see lamb of God on Saturday, but the weather could be awful.  The weather will be the determining factor.  It’s supposed to rain over night then snow the entire weekend.  I’d like to see lamb of God, but I’d also like to be alive to see the CFL playoff games on Sunday!  Does the CFL really want to compete with a billion NFL games on a Sunday? Most Canadians, especially in Toronto, follow the playoffs and watch NFL instead?  Toronto is really not a CFL town!  Regina will be off the hook, crazy next week!  Grey Cup madness will “…take over this town….”  WARNING METAL!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2DfYLar2QGI

I’ll be in Dad’s home theater on Sunday watching the eastern final between Hamilton and Toronto, then the western final in Calgary between the Calgary Stampeders and the Saskatchewan Roughriders.  If the Riders win, we are going to the Grey Cup game, if not it’s the same day as my parents 35th anniversary and we’ll be watching the game in the home theater again on November 24th!

 

One Bad Son from Saskatoon is in a competition to play as an opener to Hedley at the Grey Cup half time show.  I swear the singer’s voice is quite a bit like Axl Rose of Guns ‘n Roses.  I really don’t care much for Guns ‘n Roses.  Thanks for the suggestion Rydell but I lump G ‘n R with the awful 80s hair metal bands in L.A.  I tried to listen to “One Bad Son” and I bought a few songs off of iTunes, but I rarely listen to them, yet Pantera and Megadeth seem to be good IMO!  How we’re we in a band together?  Probably because we are sexy.  I’m not even drunk and I’m solving problems!  “Hold my beer and watch this”  says every Canadian male before they do something ridiculous!  Here’s a few songs by One Bad Son for you to check out if you like!

Vinyl Records will be gone soon.  I think “Vintage Vinyl” in Regina will start a steady decline in sales and eventually close.  I hope I’m wrong, some people like buying Vinyl records.  CDs will be around for a while, but EVERYTHING will be available on iTunes and Netflix for a lower price.  Even I have jumped on the iTunes train.  CDs take up too much room and it’s hard for me to read the tiny liner notes in the booklet that comes with CDs!  Local bands and TOOL I have no problem buying their CDs to support local artists, and TOOL has nothing on iTunes, so CDs for them and iTunes for other artists!

 

This is one of those bands I’m on the fence about.  A group that I’ll shelve for a while and revisit later on!  Metallica has had it’s time and I only enjoy the “Master of Puppets” SONG NOT the ALBUM, “I Disappear” from the Mission Impossible 2 soundtrack and the album with the Symphony backing them

 

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kNELBM8bPGE Jimmy Kimmel on Toronto mayor Rob Ford!  Why can’t the police just arrest him with all of the video evidence?  He’ll get his day in court………………………hopefully! I guess that’s a strike against Canada, glad I’m not a Toronto citizen!

 

This one is for fans of Metallica and Motorhead, not for me though!  I am so not a fan of Metallica, I’m picky about the music I listen to!

“There’s always someone else having a worse day than you or I”

 

“Don’t judge anyone until you’ve been in their shoes” I learned this the hard way, but I learned it!

 

“Just because today is a terrible day doesn’t mean tomorrow won’t be the best day of your life. You’ve just got to get their” Today has not been a terrible day.

 

“You’re not perfect so don’t try to be. Just be happy with yourself and everything else will fall into place”
