    It's the RED ROCKER'S Birthday!

    Today is Sammy Hagar's birthday! It's herd to believe, but Sammy is 67 YEARS OLD! D A M N! This guy does NOT look 67 at all! From a great run with Van Halen, to a huge solo career, this guy continues to blow it up! I've met Sammy one time only. He was the headliner of the 1999 "T95 OZ FEST". He was one nice guy. The only thing that threw me off though, was the fact that he had winners on stage in his "Cabo Bar" and served them his very own Cabo tequila. HIS tequila. The odd part? WE had to go to the liquor store and buy HIS tequila to serve the winners! HAHA! I was like, "what a cheap ass"! HA! But I'm sure that wasn't his decision, and he probably didn't even know that's how that went down. We met him after the show, and what a hell of a nice guy. To celebrate his birthday, I have some great links and videos for ya with a video of his "supergroup" CHICKENFOOT!

    Beach Boys - God Only Knows.... Like you've never seen before!

    Wow. You've got to check this out. The BBC gathered a bunch of top musicians to record the Beach Boys classic, "God Only Knows", and it is freakin awesome! I have always been a Beach Boys fan, as growing up, that's what my Dad always listened to. He's seen them in concert, and so have I. It was a very awesome show, and took me back to my childhood. Dad still loves them, and although sad, he has requested a couple specific songs from them to be played at his funeral. However, that request has, for me and my brothers, has seemed to make it tolerable. Anyway, check out this video, and enjoy. Spoiler alert..... a certain Beach Boy makes an appearance in it.

    VIDEO: Black Sabbath gonna call it QUITS!

    In a recent interview, Ozzy says 2015 will be it for Black Sabbath. Ozzy said that the fellas will get together to make one last album, then embark on a final tour. DAMN! This trend needs to stop! It seems like "final tour" news is the flavor of the month, and everyone is doing it! But, on the other hand, Ozzy says that after Sabbath wraps it up, he will get back out on the road for his solo show. Motley Crue made sure they stopped in Wichita for their final trek, so let's hope Black Sabbath will give us the same courtesy!

    Would it be ok with you?

    Would it be ok with you if people came up to you and blew cigarette smoke in your face? Would it be ok with you if people would shoot guns at you if they said they promised not to hit you? OF COURSE NOT! You might even say that's a no-brainer! Then WHY IN THE HELL would you allow yourself to be a passenger in a car where the driver is texting & driving? Have you ever heard this.... "Oh stop, I'm good at it! AND I'm keeping my eyes on the road!" Uhhhhh, not good. Numerous studies continue to show that cell phone use behind the wheel is very bad. Whether your talking or texting, it's just bad news. Unless you're a fan of death. If you are, text away! Sheesh. The FCC, which governs all media, has a great article regarding this issue. Check out the startling facts, and what they want to do to stop it. Click HERE to read it. Also, we want you to join us and Davis-Moore in taking the pledge to DON'T TEXT & DRIVE. Take the pledge HERE, and you'll be entered to win a iPad Mini.

    VIDEO: NEW Pink Floyd album coming out SOON!

    HOLY S***! For the first time in nearly 20 years, Pink Floyd has a NEW album coming out! This is freakin sweet! It's gonna be called "The Endless River", and it's a tribute to the band's keyboardist, Rick Wright. Wright died in 2008. The album is mostly made up of music that Wright, David Gilmour and Nick Mason put together during a session in 1993. That's when the last studio album, "The Division Bell" was released (1994). They said that because of the technology of today, they were able to get this done in such a way that sounds incredible. In the meantime, enjoy one of the new songs, MAROONED.

    VIDEO: Mythbusters: Cell Phone -vs- Drunk Driving

    Mythbusters is one of my FAVORITE tv shows! These guys are like me. We LOVE TO BLOW STUFF UP! All for a good cause of course! In one of their many different "myths" they have done on the show, one was very similar to the point we've been trying to push. Cell phones while driving are a BAD idea! How bad? The demonstration was to show that using your phone behind the wheel is as bad as drunk driving! Check out the video. Also, click HERE to take the pledge with T95 and Davis-Moore to DON'T TEXT & DRIVE!

    VIDEOS: Will Ferrell & Chad Smith team up for a good cause!

    If you didn't know it, or have been living under a rock, Will Ferrell and RHCP drummer Chad Smith look like twins! For years, people have been making the comparison. After all the talk, the two finally got together for a "drum-off", and since then, they have capitalized on their looks. Now, it stops there. Wil Ferrell is NOT a good drummer. Chad has nothing to worry about. HA! Most recently, Ferrell joined Chad, and a all-star group, to provide something he can play well. The cowbell. He was in Seattle for a benefit called "Cancer for College". This all-star group included, along with Chad Smith, was Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready, Dave Matthews Band bassist Stefan Lessard, Guns N’ Roses and Velvet Revolver bassist Duff McKagan and singer Brandi Carlile. They played under the name "I Pissed My Pants". This is the video of their performance. Also, check out the video of the "drum-off" from the Jimmy Fallon Show.
