    Slipknot's bass player, V MAN, rushed to the hospital!

    At this point, we're not sure WHY, but V-MAN, the bass player for Slipknot, was rushed to the hospital last night. Not too long after they took the stage in Connecticut, he rushed backstage, and did not return. Cory Taylor only said "something happened", and he went to the hospital. The show went on. We wish him the best. Click the pic to read the full story.

    Motley Crue to be KILLED??

    Calm down. I'm not talking about them really getting killed. I'm talking about how their very last show might come to an end! For some reason, mainly because KISS can't seem to ever really retire, nobody believes Motley Crue is actually hangin' it up! However, they stand firm in saying that their last show on Nwe Years Eve this year is it. They have even gone so far as to sign contracts saying they will never tour again, make new music, anything. That said, Alice Cooper, who is part of this last Crue tour, in a interview, jokingly said he knows it's it for them, because he's gonna kill them at the end of the last show. The Crue guys thought that was hilarious, and that got em thinking. Alice Cooper "gets killed" during his stage performance, so why not use those theatrics, and have Alice kill them off! This should be interesting!

    Um..... WTF? From the band Silverchair, to...... WHAT?

    Daniel Johns, who gave us great music in the 90's with the band SILVERCHAIR, has been pretty quiet for almost 10 years. But now, he has a new solo album coming out, and don't expect to hear anything that would come close to the sounds of Silverchair. His new style is, well, different. It sounds like stuff you'd hear with the likes of Justin Timberlake. Seriously. Check out the links below, and videos of OLD stuff, and his NEW song.

    It's National HAMBURGER Day!

    MMMMMMMMMMMM!!!!! Hamburgers! Love em! Wichita has some of the damn good hamburgers too! My favorite hamburgers in Wichita come from 2 places. Bomber Burger, which is off of 47th S, and K-15, and Jack's Coffee Shop on Hydraulic near 63rd. Now, the BEST cheeseburger I've ever had, EVER? That honor goes to a place in my hometown of Hutchinson..... The R-B Drive-in! HOLY MOLY! If you have never eaten at the R-B, you owe it to yourself to head to Hutch and try it! It's at 201 E Ave A. My favorite thing to get there? "R-B special" with extra cheese, pickle & ketchup only. Holy crap, I'm wanting one NOW! And if you're really hungry, try the BELTBUSTER! Every time I go to Hutch to see family, my first stop is usually the R-B!

    Were you at MUDlahoma?!

    Wow. Another year in the books. Rocklahoma was fun, and a big muddy mess. Friday started great, but the rest of the weekend was jacked up. When the rain started Saturday, we all knew it was gonna be a mud pit. And it was. Once the gates to the grounds opened at 3pm, it instantly was slop. Then things turned worse. The rain kicked up, bands were forced to cancel, and peoples camps were turned into swamp pits. Sunday, it happened all over again. Rain, rain, and more rain. However, things weren't severe, so bands still played. It's hard to predict the weather that far out, and this was one of only a few muddy ass weekends for Rocklahoma. I'll go back again next year for another fun weekend! Did you go this year? How did you survive the rainy mess? Let us know on our Facebook page! Click HERE.
