FINALLY....baseball's post season is here!!! I have always loved America's past time and this year's playoff picture has shaped up to be an amazing one!! Yankees/Astros tonight....in what may shape up to be an outstanding pitcher's duel....Kansas City awaiting the winner....and of course how about them Cubbies!!!!...Here's an interesting tid bit for you Cubbie fans....the last time the Cubs won the ws..was in 1908....tomorrow night's wildcard showdown between the Cubs and Pirates in Chicago....has a first pitch time of 7:08 pm...in military time that translates to....1908....Click here to check out some of the greatest moments in post season baseball history! Rick.
I was fortunate enough to see Halestorm perform live in Kansas CIty just a few days ago...just this last Monday as a matter of fact...and let me tell you they did not disappoint!!! With no opener (which was awesome because it meant more time for them!) they played for the better part of two full hours and they were AWESOME!!. I did hang with them for a few min before the set and they were extremely cordial and pleasant as always...I have always said from day one they have one of the freshest and most outstanding sounds in rock today. Click here to check them out doing I Miss the Misery live in the UK! Rick
The list is out! Apparently after much research (which quite frankly would have been a blast to be a part of!) the list of official "team cocktails' is out for every National Football League team! Click here to see what your team's official cocktail is! Rick
I looooove the cult classic Roadhouse...I mean who doesn't right? With Swayze and Sam Elliot ruling the bar scene how can you go wrong wright?...Apparently Roadhouse is being rebooted with none other than Rhonda Rousey playing the lead role!!!! Click here for details! rick

It was Dec 8th...2004....I will never forget where I was when I heard the news...not to sound cheesy or dramatic about it...but quite frankly that moment still haunts me to this day....I received a call from a good friend of mine who was a huge fan of Pantera and still is to this day...he was so rattled about it he could hardly speak...I recall vividly that he simply told me to turn on my tv and check out mtv...the second I started to process what had happened one thing occurred to me sharply...and that was the simple fact that the world had lost an incredible artist...an amazing guitarist who had yet to even fully bloom....today would have been Dimebad Darrel's 49th birthday....Happy birtday my friend and you have no idea how much we miss you. Click here to see some very talented musicians pay homage to Dimebag Darrell.
Happy 72nd birthday to Robert De Niro!! He is easily one on my all time favorite actors...there is no one and I mean NO ONE who can play a mob guy like he does....and let's face it....he was nothing short of INCREDIBLE in Cape Fear....did you know it has been 25 years since the release of Goodfellas?? Can you believe that? Some of the main cast members from Goodfellas recently got together for a reunion of sorts and of course Robert De Niro was there...click here to check it out! Rick
Today is National Vinyl Record Day and I think that is awesome!!!!! NOTHING has that very cool sound you get from vinyl........NOTHING........and vinyl is actually making a very big comeback!

There is nothing...and I mean nothing...that goes down as good as an ice cold one from the bottom of the cooler on a 90 plus degree day!! Everyone has their own favorite so to speak...me...I am definitely a cold Bud Light or Heinekin fan...no doubt...what would you say is the best foreign beer out there? Click here for a list of some outstanding beers from around the world! Rick
I am most definitely a complete nerd to say the least when it comes to Jame Bond...I have every single Bond movie on dvd and blu ray...and yes I do bust them out and watch some of them for the 10th time on occasion....NOTHING and I do mean NOTHING beats a good Bond villian and of course the Bond girls are awesome as well....and with no disrespect to Sean Connery....I mean after all he is Sean Connery..the greatest Bond ever...I do have to say Daniel Craig is really staking his claim as one of the best Bonds ever ....Click here for a new extended trailer to Spectre... Which will be in theatres soon...but not soon enough! Rick
I have seen Korn live at least half a dozen times...maybe more...and I have NEVER seen them do a bad show....they are INCREDIBLE live!! They are also doing something this year that is nothing short of AWESOME! click here for all the details! Rick
First off let me say I am a HUGE fan of Stone Sour...I think they are an incredible band and I have honestly never heard them do anything I was not a fan of....admittedly some songs better than others but over all I have yet to hear them do anything I did not like...That being said I have to say I also think this is pretty entertaining/funny....Corey Taylor has been catching some heat over some comments he made about Kanye West..Click here to see it for yourself! Rick
Shinedown is easily one of the best bands out there and they are finally back with some new material!! I have yet to hear anything they have done that I personally didn't absolutely love! Click here for a look at their new video for Cut The Cord. Rick
First off I ama HUGE fan of the original lineup of Stone Temple Pilots. I was sad so see them replace Scott Weiland and I sincerely mean that with absolutely no disrespect to the very talented Chester Bennington. I also totally understand why they made the move...it was something that simply had to be done in order to insure there would be a future for STP...I have seen them numerous times with Scott and they were ...for lack of better terms...simply amazing! Chester has apparantly gone over quite well according to Dean DeLeo.. Click here for more ! Rick
I realize of course we are not quite even half way through the year...but talk is already starting over the best rock albums of the year! For a list of what some are saying are the top vote getters click here. IF i were to vote I would have to lean towards the new Seether and the new Godsmack...but hey that's just me...to each their own!
Maynard James Keenan is to rock what Will Ferrell is to comedy....he just seems to fit perfectly to say the least. That does not mean, however, that he is indestructable!...Maynard had to recently undergo hip replacement surgery...click here for details. RIck
Axl Rose is by no means a stranger to controversy. Everyone knows that. which is why it is unusual to say the least when someone in GNR OTHER THAN Axl gets noticed for some kind of mayhem! Guitarist DJ Ashba got involved in a little tassle over ...get this....an E Cigarrette! It happened over Memorial Day weekend. Click here for the details! Rick
Today seems to be a rather popular day for rock stars to be celebrating birthdays! Happy birthday to Ian Astbury of one of the greatest bands on the planet...The Cult! Ian turns 53 today. Click here to see how he feels about Lorde actually covering a Cult song! He picks a bad guitar and his name is C.C. Deville who as we all know provided blazing licks for Poison for many years. C.C. also turns 53 today! Click here for some very cool and interesting trivia about C.C. Deville! And last but definitely not least Mike Inez of Alice in Chains is celebrating his 49th birthday today as well...I have always hailed Alice in Chains as one of the greatest rock bands of all time and Mike Inez is definitely part of the reason why. Click here for a very cool interview with Mike Inez in which he talks all things Alice In Chains! Rick
I am a HUGE fan of Soundgarden. I always have been ever since the first time I heard My Wave and Spoonman..and yet as big of a fan as I am I do not recall this!! Apparently Soundgarden used to play a video/song before each live show (way back in the day) called "Night Surf." It was never released and only those who attended live shows way back when would ever see or hear it... until now! Click here to check it out as they have just now released it for public consumption! Enjoy! Rick
