  • Avalanche

    .....Stone Sour/Theory/Halestorm/Skillet here this thursday!!!!!! Hartman Arena!....Hank and I both will be doing our shows live at Hartman Arena......what a great lineup!....I am actually a bigger fan of Stone Sour than Slipknot.....not that I don't love me some slipknot.....I have just always been a huge fan of Stone Sour.....The lyrical content alone is incredible.....the last time I actually spoke to Corey outside of an interview situation was several years ago in Kansas City....he and I talked Sopranos while backstage right before a Stone Sour show at the Beaumont.......anyways thank you as always for checking in....................Rick

  • First cd

    ....Do you remember what your very first cd/album/full length piece of music was?....I do.....I remember it vividly.....it was Back In Black by AC/DC......I actually had a walkman....remember those?....I must have played it t million times!!!....the first time I heard Rock and Roll ain't Noise Pollution I knew i was beyond hooked....I grew up on Back In Black.....as well as 2112/Fly By Night/Moving Pictures (Rush)....and Pink Floyd....(any)......and bands like Def Leppard.....The Clash.....U2....VH.......Motley Crue....and many others too numerous to mention.......are todays bands better?....I would say that in some ways yes and in some ways no.....I absolutely love bands like Seether....Stone Sour......Shinedown....Papa Roach.....STP....Alice In Chains.....Soundgarden...Distturbed....Chevelle......etc.....and honestly I don't think its fair to compare them to bands that I grew up with simply due to the fact it's two different eras completely.. That's what makes rock the greatest format ever conceived.....it evolves....it changes....it adapts....and that's why it will always be here....as long as there are people who can not stand conformity....people who not only relish breaking the rules....but relish to the same extent creating their own rules.....rock will survive.....no other format has that type of fluxuality to it....no other format is as apparent and vocal about the overall environment in which human kind exists....if that makes any sense.....no other format more adequately reflects the overall mood/anger/happiness/sadness/joy/excitement of people......period.....it is merely a reflection of us all......and thats what makes it so incredible..........thank you as always for checking in!

  • Could You Do it?

    ....I finally saw the movie 127 Hours the other day....just in case you didn't already know it's the true story of Aaron Ralston....the hiker who accidentally (obviously) got his right arm trapped underneath a boulder while hiking in Utah....he was miles from nowhere and had no cel service and no one anywhere near him to help him....unable to free himself he was trapped for a period of no less than 5 days.....being the experienced outdoorsman that he was, he unfortunately had deemed it as unnecessary to inform anyone as to his whereabouts......realizing that odds were very slim that anyone would find him anytime soon, and out of supplies, he decided there was only one thing he could do if he wished to live.....he cut his right harm off just below the elbow....with a pocket knife.....applied a tourniquet....and walked several miles until he ran into some tourists who called for help.....one of the park rangers who was first on scene claimed he had never ran into anyone who was that determined to live....which brings me to my question for you.......If you were in the same predicament.......could you do what he did?.....I would like to say that if it came down to life and death I could....but honestly.....I can't say for sure considering I have never been in that situation....anyways it is a good film and if you get time I certainly recomend it......thank you as always for checking in! Rick

  • History

    ....I was watching some History Channel over the weekend (I know...I'm a nerd)....they were showing some colorized footage of the final days of WW2....D day....and some of what occured shortly after.....I have nothing but the utmost of respect for our veterans....our men and women who have served....and who are serving now....as I sat there and watched the D day footage I was simply in awe....these soldiers landing on the beach.....and charging full force directly at heavily fortified positions....doing so simply because it had to be done....sacraficing their lives and well being for just that cause.....it had to be done.....in the name of humanity it had to be done....pure and simple.....we will never be able to fully repay them....there is just not enough that can be done....in every sense of the word.....they answered the call....and did so without hesitation....no doubt most experienced fear and anxiety....who wouldn't??? but did that stop them from answering the call?? NO.....and for that I can honestly say that I will never forget what they did for this country....I will never forget what any of our veterans...men and women...have done for this country....and I will never forget what current members of our armed forces continue to do for us at this very second....I will never under any circumstances take them for granted....it's not about politics or any of that b.s. ....it's about the fact that when the wolves start knocking on the door....we can still sleep at night because of our service men and women.......anyways thank you so much for checking in as always! Rick

  • Shaken not stirred

    ...who would you say thus far has been the best James Bond?.....Many would say Connery.....who do doubt owned that role.....I was never a real big fan of Moore....I didn't dis like him,,,just didn't really feel he was a great Bond.....he wasn't a bad one by any means,,,just not a great one you know.....Brosnan on the other hand.....I would have to say was a great Bond......was he as good as Connery?.....different eras.....different Bonds......this Daniel Craig cat is actually better than decent as a Bond as well.....anyways Avalanche tomorrow night at Hartman!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! hope to see you there.....................Rick

Rick

  • slow drivers!

    .....where do slow drivers come from???....I have nothing against someone who isn't driving as fast as i am....nothing at all....i realize that i am somewhat of a leadfoot and i certainly do not expect everyone to be as well....all i ask is that the person in front of me at least drive somewhere near the speed limit and not ten mph under it!!!...ugh!!!....if the speed limit is 65....at least do 60....is that too much to ask?..lol...ok...am done venting....and i do hope you have a great day! thank you for checking in as always.......................Rick

  • Seether

    .....Every once in a a while....a band will come along that simply has what I call the "it" factor....I don't know how to explain it exaclty.....but I do know it when i hear/see it.....and Seether is definitely one of those bands.....Country Song is outstanding and I can not wait to hear the rest of their new tracks!!!!...again I don't know how to pinpoint or explain it.....Seether is just one of those bands that speak to me.....if that makes any sense at all....there is a tremendous amount of depth to what they do....I admit they aren't for everyone....but for those if us that do get em.....it's an outstanding thing!!!!! Thank you as always for checking in................................Rick

  • The Calm

    .....With everything that is underway here....Rock and Ride.....Avenged Sevenfold.....Whitesnake.....not to mention Riverfest and 311....this weekend is kind of shaping up to be the calm before the storm.....I will be out at Pleasures Saturday night from 9-11p......by all means come out and partake in the madness!!!! thanks as always for stopping by.....Rick

  • who watches????

    .....who the bleepity bleep watches royal wedding coverage at 3am???????? Is it me or is that beyond borderline insane???? It's boring enough during the day time......did you catch any of the NFL draft last night?....I watched picks one through ten,,,,,then kinda peered at it every once in a while to try to keep up......did you see the fans booing Goodell?....I do hope there is not a lenghty work stoppage in the NFL....if there were to be one no one would win.....anyways thank you as always for stopping by..............................Rick

  • Bin Laden

    ....there are a few,,,,a select very few events that will occur in everyone's life that will leave an imprint deep enough to make a life long lasting impression...the birth of a child.....the Berlin wall falling....Sept 11.....etc.......events that when thought of, everyone knows exactly what they were doing when they heard the news......I was on fb last night when I saw someone post something about Bin Laden being dead....I didn't know whether or not it was true at first......so I immediately turned on CNN.....and watched history unfold as our President came on live to tell the world that yes indeed, the world's most wanted man was dead.....I felt a sense of relief...combined with joy.....and to some extent sadness as the memories of Sept 11 came flooding in as well....I sincerely feel the world is a better place now....and i am happy for those who lost friends/family on Sept 11....they can finally get some kind of closure so to speak....i don't know that they will ever totally heal....but at least it's something.....anyways thank you as always for checking in RIck

  • hole in the wall

    ...I have always said that when it comes to clubs/bars etc....little hole in the walls are the absolute best.....whenever I go to New Orleans I absolutely loooooooooove the little hole in the wall places that you can find up and down Burbon Street.....they each have their own aura so to speak...their own story....something you can't find elsewhere....give me one of those any day over some jam packed 2000 capacity club in the heart of Vegas.....but hey....that's just me......thanks for stopping by...............Rick

  • the little things

    ....sometimes I can't help but notice that it truly is the little things in life that seem to bring me the most joy.....and I think to some extent that is true for most people in general.....and obviously the list of little things in life that bring forth a smile or two varies from person to person...depending on individual blueprints so to speak....to me it's stuff like Happy Days reruns at 3am when I can't sleep....hearing a song that I haven't heard in literally years.....the smell of fresh cut grass....my dog waking my up in the morning by laying on my head.....getting in my car on a day off and just driving with absolutely no destination in mind........towns that are small enough to have a restaurant, bar, and post office in the same building as well as an 8 man football team that hasn't lost 3 games in 5 years.....the little things rock....period........anyways thank you for checking in..........Rick

  • weekend happenings
