  • Led Zeppelin 45th anniversary of first show!!

    The 45th anniversary of Led Zeppelin's first concert will be celebrated next month....their first show actually occurred in Denmark....it was originally slated to have the Yardbirds (Page's band) perform but they broke up....and as a result Page formed a band with Robert Plant....John Paul Jones...and John Bonham...and thus Led Zeppelin came kicking and screaming into this world....they were actually billed as "the new Yardbirds" when they played their first gig that fateful day 45 years ago....Hinder in town tomorrow night and I do hope to see you there!! and of course I do hope you are having a great Wednesday! Rick

  • WE ARE LESS THAN ONE MONTH OUT!!

    ...The NFL regular season kicks off in less than one month....FINALLY!!!!!....am starving for some football!!!! will Kansas City improve?....I would have to think so with the recent additions to that team....Alex Smith definitely will not hurt their chances...not to mention they are in a division which is unpredictable if nothing else.....San Fran should be a pre season favorite as well as Atlanta..in the AFC you gotta like Denver's chances....and Houston as well.....but hey it is the NFL and anything can and usually does happen...had a great time over the weekend at Pleasures was great to see those of you who stopped by....will be there again this weekend for their LUAU!!! hope to see you out and about soon.....Rick

  • A Rod needs to take his medicine!

    ...Anyone who knows me at all knows I am a die hard NY Yankees fan...always have been..ever since I was old enough to pick up a bat and glove I have bled NY Yankees....that being said...I still have little sympathy for the plight of Alex Rodriguez...Don't get me wrong....I respect his accomplishments on the field...PEDs or no PEDs...600 plus hrs is just that....600 plus hrs..it places you in an extremely elite club....I don't care how much "help" you may or may not have had....it takes a massive skill set to be able to get to that plateau....I guess what bothers me about him is simply the fact that he won't just own up and face the music so to speak.....we all make mistakes none of us are immune to that...it's part of being human...my grandfather once told me that making a mistake is what makes one human....admitting to it and doing what needs to be done to rectify it is what makes one a man......he told me that when I had not even hit 10 years old yet and I will never forget that....A Rod got caught...as did at least 10 others.....who all (with the exception of A Rod) have agreed to the consequences and have accepted the penalties incurred.....A Rod chooses to appeal...which he has that right....and I personally find no fault in the fact that he has that right...what I do find fault with, however, in what A Rod masquerades as his motivations for his actions....he claims it's about the game and his love of it......I have a tendency to believe he filed his appeal so he could continue to draw a paycheck....plain and simple.....it's blaringly obvious to many and I would have more respect for him if he just admitted to it instead of offering up a charade.....the absolute best thing he could do for the game would be to face the music...take his suspension...work hard during his suspension which looks to be a lengthy one (through the 2014 season) and be ready to come back and finish his career with a couple good seasons....go out the best way possible.....as compared to doing what he is doing now which is obviously financially driven....I have always had a special place in my heart and soul for the game of baseball and always will....I see it as the greatest game ever invented....which is why it pains me to see A Rod do this....just my opinion and nothing more lol.....I do hope you are having a great Wednesday! Rick

  • Rush in Kansas CIty......WOW!

    ...THE RUSH SHOW SUNDAY NIGHT IN KANSAS CITY WAS.....IN A WORD.....AMAZING! ...went backstage and met Geddy and Alex...they were both very courteous and polite..took a couple pics with them as well....was aweseome!....they opened with Subdivisions....then it was Big Money....I wanna say Grand Designs and Force Ten...Limelite....they did Analog Kid....The Pass....Far Cry....and a couple others before they hit intermission...then came out with...now get this....A STRING SECTION!!! was incredible to see Spirit of Radio accompanied by string section....when they busted out YYZ the entire crowd of 15000 plus just went NUTS!!!...of course Neil did a couple of lengthy solos and let me tell you watching a genius at work never gets old.....they encored with Tom Sawyer....and then 2112 intro with Temples of Syrinx.....I have seen way more shows than I can recollect...and I will flat out tell you these guys are flawless in concert....they are simply amongst the best musicians on the planet and that is a FACT!...check out T95.com for the pix!! Rick

  • LET'S GET THIS WEEKEND STARTED!!

    .....Fridays are absolutely awesome!!!.....just on the verge of launching into the weekend and that rocks!!!....of course I will be at Pleasures tomorrow night starting at 9! three dollar you call its while i am there and lots of lovely ladies as well!!....am going to be in Kansas City for The Rush show on sunday night.....if you get a chance to make it to this show at the Sprint Center....DO IT!! They are incredible live...this will be my 5th or 6th time......only a few more weeks until FOOTBALLLLLLL!!! hope to see you soon.....Rick

  • A lifetime ban for A Rod?

    ....Anyone who knows me at all is well aware of the fact I am a HUGE baseball fan....always have been....from the first time I picked up a bat and glove at age 6 I have been in love with the game...there simply is no other game like it...no other game with it's rich tradition and history..I LIVE for going to the ballpark....I could easily sit through a triple header....which is why the recent PED scandal that has rocked Major League Baseball has saddened me to say the least...unfortunately performance enhancing drugs have been a part of the game I love for some time now and I am not so sure they are going away any time soon...rumors have been floating about a possible lifetime ban for A Rod....perhaps that's exactly what needs to be done....maybe the league needs to finally get serious about actually doing something about this glaring problem...instead of just ignoring it and hoping it will fade away....maybe a lifetime ban enforced on one of baseball's biggest stars will send a clear message....one that says we are going to clean things up no matter what it takes....we are tired of it...and it is going to stop....I guess time will tell... baseball will survive....it has been through worse....I do hope you are having a great Thursday an I hope to see you soon! Rick

  • Rob Zombie says "no go"

    ...."No..we did it and it's done."....those were Rob Zombie's words in a recent interview while at Mayhem fest in Illinois....He said those words in response to whether or not there would ever be a White Zombie reunion....he went on to say " And it wouldn't be good. That's the thing. I mean, a lot of people forget, because they went to see White Zombie and they were 15 years old and it was their first concert and everybody in White Zombie was, like, 23 years old.

  • Welcome Home Derek Jeter!

    ....as a lifelong Yankee fan....all I can say is.......FINALLY.....Jeter is BACK!!!!....and what a grande entrance he made yesterday not only going 2 for 4 but also knocking one out of the park on the first pitch he sees.......WELCOME HOME DEREK WE ARE SO GLAD YOU ARE BACK!!!....only a couple weeks to Hinder....about a month to go for Seether...I do hope you hare having a wonderful Monday........Rick

  • One ice cold beer please!

    ...welcome to friday and welcome to the weekend!!!!....since we are now over half way through the baseball season I must review my coveted list....at the beginning of the season every year me and a friend of mine flip a coin....whoever wins the coin toss gets to choose first...choose what you may ask...and I will tell you lol...we choose team by team until we have evenly divided up the entire roster of MLB teams....whoever wins the coin toss chooses first....and then the other chooses...thus going back and forth team by team until every team has been chosen.....whichever person ends up choosing the team that ends up winning the world series wins an ice cold beer of their choice from the other.....and here is the list of teams I ended up choosing....for better or worse lol (keep in mind we chose at the beginning of the season)....I have: Atlanta....Texas....Boston....San Fran...Kansas City....Cincinatti....White Sox....Padres....Angels.....Diamondbacks....Seattle...Dodgers...Astros, Cubs, and Mets.......in order that I picked...and to think I passed on St Louis what was I thinking!!!!!.. anyways I do hope you are having a great Friday.....Rick
