Lazy weekend here. Friday night was Clear the DVR. Saturday I went with my parents to a virtual tour of the new football stadium for the 2017 season, came home & stayed out of Kim’s way while she cleaned. When she cleans it’s how normal people clean twice a year. Everything is moved, clean the spot where it sits & when one room has been finished she might put things back or usually most of them. When she cleans like that, I stay out of the way, she’s on a mission! Sunday has been quiet thus far & likely wont change!

The 1975 on Jimmy Fallon

5 questions with Lzzy & guitarist Joe of “Halestorm”


Ozzy Osbourne calls Black Sabbath a clever mistake


The Strokes will be releasing new music this summer


Making a Murderer


Musician was asked to fill in for Motorhead tour


I’d hit up 20-35% of these shows if they were to stop in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba.


So Maynard James Keenan will be touring with “Puscifer” again, yet no “Tool” album since 2006. It’s been a decade at this point, go ahead make it 15 years. I’m getting good at waiting!

14 rock acts that have had brushes with death


10 best metal albums of 2006


Tool’s not really metal to me. I’ll take “Iron Maiden” or more likely “Lamb of God”

16 years ago AC/DC released the album “Stiff Upper Lip”. The album that sounds the same as the rest of their albums. When you buy AC/DC, Motorhead, Cannibal Corpse, or a TON of other groups’ albums you know what to expect from certain bands, I’m guilty of it also. I like Motorhead, so I know what I’m getting, that’s why I have 2 Greatest Hits albums & their last release “Aftershock”


However you’re getting this, please pass it along?

Until Blue Jay baseball ends this year. This blog will likely take a backseat so I’ll be able to watch 3 hours of baseball a day. They get October 4th-October 6th off then resume playing on the 7th.

Today’s workout was brought to you by the letter “D”, as in “Dream Theater’s” ‘Systematic Chaos’ album.

Well the 2 sports teams I cheer for won on Sunday. Saskatchewan Roughriders won their 2nd game of a season that is nearly over? The CFL has but 9 teams, too small & pretty terrible this year, EVERYONE!! Roughriders aren’t mathematically out of the playoffs yet. I’m not holding my breath on that one.

Toronto Blue Jays won their final home series of the year by sweeping the Tampa Bay Rays 3/3 games in Toronto. They were guaranteed a wild card entrance to the playoffs Friday night, but they’re not done. I want to see them win the American league East, then the entire American league. Both are well within site. The Blue Jays are currently 90W-65L and in first place in the East. The NY Yankees are in second place at 86W-69L. Only 7 games to go for the Blue Jays! 4 beginning tonight in Baltimore then 3 in Tampa Bay. Sunday in Tampa is the final regular season game for the Blue Jays. This will be the first time in 22 years that they’ve been to the playoffs, last time in ’93 they won the World Series. I’m not convinced they’ll win the World Series yet, they rely far too much on home runs. 2 or less, good chance they’ll lose. 3 or more better chance of them winning.

You’re team is out of the playoffs. Why would anybody do this to a team mate? I think Jonathan Paplebon just lost his $11 million paycheck next year. I’ve heard rumblings that he’s not the best guy to have in the club house, finally there’s video proof.

Don’t air your dirty laundry in public. Take it to the tunnel or club house. I played on a team with a moron. Everytime he opened his yap I’d sit in the dugout with my head down & whisper to myself “Shut up! Nobody wants to hear your verbal diarrhea”. I wasn’t in charge of him or the rest of the team. If played dirty & would yell 4 letter words to the other team, have at it. Just like I was on the first link to this blog. Who looks like more of an idiot? Person yelling & swearing at everyone or the victims of a pathetic rant?

Friday, October 2nd! Don’t forget new Trivium & Clutch!!!!

I like “Islander” I’m not a huge fan, but I do like them. Brand new tune from them.


At this point I think ‘The Simpsons’ are trying to remain relevant.


‘The Strokes’ confirm they’re back in the studio. I heard one song when they were first in the public eye & decided they weren’t my taste in music.


Corey Taylor of Slipknot & Stone Sour will in a TV series


Courtney Love Cobain get’s snubbed from daughter’s wedding?


….did I disappoint you….” Yes there have been a few disappointing albums this year, for me.

Pentatonix shared it! New album October 16th!!!!!!!!!!!

Surf Dads in The Exchange Saturday, October 24th.


The full Ian Fletcher Thornley single. Album preorder October 2nd !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


37 years ago ‘Black Sabbath’ released “Never Say Die”


Mark Tremonti want’s clear the air about a “Creed” reunion. Please no. Wasted time from his band ‘Alter Bridge’ & his solo project, IMO.


New artist, Meg Myers. Halestorm shared her video!

On iTunes I see 2 albums, a single & an EP.

Latest album with this song on it. I always ask my boss aka Kim, if I can buy an album from iTunes no matter how much it costs. I’m pretty much on a limit/allowance or I’d likely go WAY overboard!!! I’m cheap, but when it comes to music, it’s a different game.


Songs I like. “Robbie Williams” I haven’t listened to him since, I don’t know when? Early 2000s” He was the “bad boy” in a boy band in the UK called “Take that”. Why do I know that? I have one album from 2000.

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?

Julian Casablancas of “The Strokes” news

“Riotfest” line up for 2015 in Denver, Chicago, & Toronto.

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.

Brian Johnson of AC/DC will appear on Jim Breuer’s comedy album

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.
