    VIDEOS: Master of SOCK puppets??

    I stumbled on this and had to share it! It's a collection of music videos performed by SOCK PUPPETS! For instance, the first video, the band is called LINTallica. Get it? Socks. Lint. Yeah. Then, the other title that made me laugh was "It's Raining Bleach", instead of "It's Raining BLOOD" by Slayer. Enjoy killing time with these vid's!

    VIDEO: It's the birthday of William Bruce Rose, Jr!

    Ok, ok. It's the birthday of AXL ROSE! Axl is 53 today, and still weird as ever! We all know Guns N Roses is an iconic part of our rock music history. They always will be. Loud music, booze and hot chicks. That was the mantra of GnR. Right off the bat when they broke up, we really didn't know how much of a weirdo Axl was. But over time, his weirdness has really shined through! From showing up late to shows, to not at all, his fans gave up. Now it seems he's a bit better. Probably because he's to the point where he's realized what a douche he's become, and maybe outta do something about it! HAHA! Check this out. I saw his version of GnR at Rocklahoma a couple years ago, and I couldn't believe this story. But it was true. Two completely different people told me this story, and other people saw it as it happened. Ok, it's no secret Axl has struggled with his weight. Up, down, he's been all over the road. Well, at Rocklahoma, the story goes, several boxes of Krispy Kreme doughnuts were delivered to the backside of the stage. Why? They were for Mr. Rose. Yeah. Apparently, instead of sneaking behind the drumset for some cocaine, or booze, or a quick hummer, Axl would sneak back there, and pork down a couple doughnuts. What. Tha. F**K. HAHAHA!!!! WHOOOOOO!!!!! Living the rock n roll lifestyle baby! One doughnut at a time! His "Paradise City" must be full of long-johns, bear claws, and rivers of glaze! So next time you have the opportunity to meet Axl, remember that. You could get to the front of the line if you have a special sack for him! A sack that has a KK on the side! Jesus.

    VIDEOS: It's DUFF'S birthday!

    And no, I'm not talking about the beer on the Simpsons. DOH! I'm talking about Duff Mckagan of Guns N Roses and Velvet Revolver fame! Duff is 51 today. Duff isn't your average rocker either. He started his life as a server at a steak house, dropped out of high school, got his GED, then started rocking. BUT, he decided that wasn't enough. His pancreas exploded, and he had to sit out a few months from playing. He was flipping through financial records of GnR, and had no clue what they meant. Because he really wanted to understand it more, he went BACK to school, attending Seattle University's Albers School of Business and Economics in the early 2000s, and then went on to start the wealth management firm Meridian Rock. He's a SMART dude! This summer, his new band, LOADED, will hit the road with Alice Cooper and Ugly Kid Joe! Check out the links for all the info. And the first video is long, but cool as hell! It's Duff on Dr. Phil talking about his life, music, addiction, and more.

    Check out my interview with Jordan, guitar player for the band Stars In Stereo. They are opening up for Theory Of A Deadman and Bush this Saturday night in Kansas City at the Midland Theater. This band is GOOD! Plus, as an added bonus, the lead singer, Bec Hollcraft, is smokin hot! I don't wanna compare them to other bands, because their sound is definately unique. But, if you're the slightest fan of Halestorm, you're really gonna love Stars In Stereo. Good, aggressive rock sound, with great lyrics, they're gonna be big. Check out the interview down below. I also put together a bunch of links for you to check out the band, buy their music, and to buy tickets for this Saturday's show in KC.

    Uhhhhhh..... Just TRY and listen to THIS. Tribute?

    One of Rock N Roll's greatest guitarists, is the late Randy Rhoads. From being one of the founding members of Quiet Riot, to being Ozzy's right hand man, Randy is missed. Coming March 3rd, look for a tribute CD called, "Immortal Randy Rhoads: The Ultimate Tribute". Rolling Stone magazine just posted one of the songs from the album. It's Rage Against The Machine's Tom Morello along with Serj of System Of A Down, doing Ozzy's "Crazy Train". I was pretty excited to hear this when I saw it! So I listened to it. I listened again. I then listened one more time to make sure I heard it correct. I'm sorry, but this is the ABSOLUTE WORST cover of any song I HAVE EVER HEARD. Poor Randy is spinning in his grave. Why in tha F**K would anyone in their right mind allow this to be put on ANY CD? I wouldn't even make it available as a free Cracker Jack prize! Yeah. It's that bad. I sure hope the rest of this "tribute" is worth a s**t. If you dare, click HERE or the pic to read all about the tribute CD, and to listen to this, uh, tribute song.

    It's Stanley Harvey Eisen's Birthday!

    WHO?! You DO know this guy! Ok, you may know him by his "stage name"..... PAUL STANLEY! See, Paul Stanley sounds better than Stanley Harvey Eisen. Paul is 63 today! For a 63 year old dude, he's held up well! Even though KISS has been through a roller coaster of good and bad, and getting blasted for losing founding members, KISS has still remained one of America's favorite rock bands, and continue to sell out shows everywhere! In the mix of "bad" times, KISS has produced some of the weirdest damn music EVER. The mainstream stuff we all know and love is great, but there is a super-weird side in KISS-land. Below is a collection of some of the weirdest stuff they've done. And don't get me started on the goofy ass movies they made years ago. Whoa.

    Metallica IN THE STUDIO! AND, they have the picture to prove it!

    It's been way too long since we've had new music from Metallica. The last album was "Death Magnetic" in 2008! It's not like they've just been sitting around doing nothing. Of course they've been on tours in the U.S., and all over the world, playing at sporting events, being the "house band" on late-night TV, and of course, their bad-ass movie, "Through The Never"! So now, it's time to get busy giving the fans some NEW stuff! Now don't get too pumped up thinking this is coming next month or anything. They are just in the beginning stages of being in the studio, layin down tracks, listening, tweaking the sound, etc. BUT, the fact that they are IN the studio means we WILL be getting new Metallica sometime in the very near future. The Metallica Instagram pic below shows Robert Trujillo sitting behind the studio mixer recording some bass tracks. I can't wait!

    The Black Crowes announce official break up!

    Rich Robinson of The Black Crowes, has just announced that the band has officially broken up. Why? Rich says it was because of quote, "an untenable ultimatum set down by Chris Robinson". Whatever the hell that means. We all know Chris is, well, a D**K. I actually witnessed this first hand, as I once took winners to meet the band after a show, and after 2 hours of NO BAND, we left the building bummed out. As we were headed to our cars, we walked by the tour bus just as Chris Robinson was stepping on to the bus. We all shouted "HEY CHRIS!", and he stopped, looked at us, and we thought we might actually get to finally meet him! Well, as he looked at us, he stared, then flipped us off, then went on the bus. What a prick. So am I sad they broke up? Nah. But I still like the music. And honestly, most people assume they broke up a long time ago! So this isn't that big of a news flash. Click HERE for the full story.

    Fans recreate St. Anger!

    Ok ok.... We all pretty much say the same thing when Metallica's album, St. Anger, gets mentioned. "OH GOD, EEEW"! (or something along those lines, maybe with some more expletives) Personally, I mildly enjoyed it. Mildly. The title track, St. Anger, was my favorite. BUT, like I said, on the whole, that album tanked for Metallica. This led to a whole lot of tension within the band, Newstead quit, and rehab followed. There are some huge Metallica fans that decided to re-record the entire album. They wanted to do it their way, while keeping all vocals and riffs intact. They released it on Youtube, and say they have no plans on doing an actual release. It is actually really damn good! The video below is their version of the whole album. Wouldn't it be weird if they DID release it, and it did better than Metallica's version? HA! And by the way, the song St. Anger happens at 5:25 in the vid.
