Do you have a question about stage 4 brain cancer?  Ask if you do!

I fell asleep to “The Sword” the album “Ages of Winter”

I exercised to “Black Sabbath” the album “Heaven & Hell” Ronnie James Dio sang on this album, not Ozzy.

 

New Year’s resolution going well so far.  Walking with my walker & Kim’s assistance already more than last year!!!!  YAY walking practice…..BOOOO!

In Canada we have free health care for the most part.  Of course not everything is free when it comes to health care, which I understand & pretty much agree with.  There is one thing I don’t understand & wouldn’t even think of unless I was in this position.

Under the federal health care plan, I’m given $1000 once in a lifetime for a wheelchair.  I don’t think I’ve seen a wheelchair under that amount?  The wheelchair I left the WRC with was free from Sask Abilities, as long as it’s returned when you’re done with it.  Right now it’s here as a backup in case something should happen to my new chair.

What will a $1000 cover on my chair?  The inflatable cushion, which I had from my previous chair.  I think my new chair cost $6500-$7000.  Again I’m not complaining, I don’t think any federal politician would realize what the cost of a wheelchair is aka I think they’re a bit out of “touch” with a physically disabled lifestyle?  In that respect, I don’t think any of them would know that?

Not every other person is in a wheelchair, so it’s not a widely known fact that they are a hefty expense.  $1000 in this case helps, a bit, but really not much.

Dave Grohl scored the movie.  This is one of the 2 songs that have vocals.  The female voice is Louise Post of “Veruca Salt” a ‘90s band.  She & Grohl were dating at the time.  I had to get HMV, at the time, to order this CD as it was only released in the USA.

 

MICHAEL JACKSON

Everybody knows who Michael Jackson is I assume.  I saw a video on www.youtube.com calling him a metal fan’s guilty pleasure.  I don’t believe in guilty pleasures.  Just because a person tends to enjoy a certain genres of music, doesn’t mean they can’t appreciate a different genres.

 

I wish I had a gang that could also dance really well!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

 

Please share this, I’m not profiting from this at all.  Word of mouth is the only way of promoting this.

FEBRUARY 5TH/FEVER IS GONE, I’M GOOD.

I fell asleep to “Puscifer” the album “Money Shot”

I woke up to “Trivium” the album “Silence in the Snow”

February 5th 2008 will be a day I’ll have to acknowledge for the rest of my life. I wont celebrate it & I wont wish for history to repeat itself. This is the day I collapsed with stage 4 brain cancer. Oddly enough I had a flu for a week before I went to work that Monday. Sunday, February 3rd I had the worst headache I’ve ever had. Tuesday, February 5th I collapsed at work & that’s why this blog exists. It was suggested by my occupational therapist to keep people updated on my progress. I’m fine as long as I take the proper pills at the right time or else I wake up in the middle of the night.

Cover songs? I usually prefer the original. There is the odd occasion the cover is better. This first song I will always prefer the original.

Original followed by a cover which I prefer.

Risky to cover any “Pink Floyd” song!!!

I could go on forever showing different cover songs, I wont though here’s the last one though. I’ve got 60 “Foo Fighters” B-Sides, I’m guessing 40 of them are cover songs.

I like seeing a band play a song live than inspired them to make the music they make now.

This is the last one, I promise. The cover is no different than the original in this case.

If you like “Megadeth” at all, the new album “Dystopia” is great!

I had a request for more Grohl! I can do that! Here are some non “Foo Fighters” albums he’s appeared on or has done by himself, yes I have them.

All of the music & sent out to his preferred metal singers the album “Probot”

Out of print & not on iTunes “Tony Iommi” Dave Grohl sang & played drums on this song!

Soundtrack he did for a Jonny Depp movie on his own “Touch”

Drums on 2 “Queens of the Stone Age” albums

Dave Grohl talks about “Nirvana”

“Pearl Jam” released the album “Yield”, probably my favourite Pearl Jam album, February 3rd 1998. I was working with a tinsmith & his son installing A/C at a seniors home that summer. Played this album everyday in the car at 5:30 am on the way to the job. After high school graduation & before my first semester in the U of R.

“The Agonist” shared it…..

I could do an entire different blog on Dave Grohl alone. I saw something on www.youtube.com about 10 albums you didn’t know he played on, then I thought “Hey, you missed 3 albums?”.

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

Tuesday’s Rock It Out Blog. “Faith No More” review

ALS would likely frighten me more than cancer. Here’s the mastermind behind the ice bucket challenge, accepting an award from Dave Grohl.

I guess the ’90s band “Veruca Salt” is releasing a new album

I haven’t seen this movie yet, so here’s what Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich has to say about “Montage of Heck”
http://loudwire.com/lars-ulrich-kurt-cobain-montage-of-heck-almost-too-much/

When you get a phone call from Dave Grohl inviting you to open for Foo Fighters on tour after your debut release you know you’re doing something right!

Phil Anselmo has a full plate for the rest of 2015 (most known as Pantera singer) LANGUAGE!!!! His voice sounds “broken” when speaking but he can hit the high notes!

Young girl plays Metallica’s “Master of Puppets”. One of the few songs I like by them.
http://loudwire.com/tina-s-metallica-master-of-puppets/

The last band I was in, playing original music mostly, covered this song. We’d rehearse 1-3 times a week. The big note at the end of the song I made it once maybe in rehearsal or at our first show. Other times I just didn’t have it in me. I hit it once & thought to myself “REALLY??? I just hit that note??? Now I should curl up & cry in the corner, that hurt me……on the inside”.

Muse article on their new album & other subjects. This album and the next Tool album will be 2 huge albums for me this year.
