(*Oops.) But, I was SO excited!! I mean, who wouldn't be?! -- It's Stereophonics! ... [Read More]
The thrill may be gone at times, but the King keeps going. B.B. King played the Chicago House of Blues, this past Thursday and Friday, to sold out crowds of adoring fans. While he did play an hour and a half set, he didn't seem to be on his top game.
I have to start with saying "WOW." I saw Garth Brooks live in 1996 performing in Lansing, Michigan. He was just as good 18 years ago as he was tonight. The house was packed floor to ceiling. Not one person sitting in their seat. Almost every person knew every word to every song. Garth started ... [Read More]

Road Trip through Sonic Highways
Foo Fighters is what I call a "phoenix" band. Not because they got a degree online, but because they have risen from the ashes of a band that faded too soon. Like New Order came from Joy Division, Foo Fighters was born in the wake of Nirvana's e... [Read More]

"Fuck all that shit; Slayer was fucking awesome!"
What can be said about tonight that hasn't already been written? Metal isn't dead, the crowd was fantastic, and the band simply rocks. Slayer has been out there since the 80s, and unlike another all too obvious heavy metal band out there, the years and success haven't corrupted the energy or quality of Slayer's performance.

Working class heroes, New Wavy of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM), heavy metal, and heroes; all these sum up the mighty Saxon. The band around charismatic shouter Biff Byford stood the test of time. Saxon is a test of time which was loaded with mischief. Saxon not only suffered from bad management, band intrigues and break ups, in addition Saxon suffered from the (many) turn of tides as well. But always and forever, Saxon proved to be as solid as a rock, not giving in to hatred and mishaps....[Read More]
I don't know about you but I tend to spend hours searching through Netflix, Hulu and Warner Archive desperately searching for something decent to watch. I usually come up empty handed. Netflix is now only interested in recent films. F%@#!@#k you if you want to watch something from the '60s. Hulu is a joke only good for watching The Daily Show (and Criterion I guess). Warner Archive is OK but they have a very, very limited selection of genre titles. Basically, if I'm looking for some good old exploitation trash my only real option is a shitty, 360p VHS rip on Youtube. So yeah, I'm interested in this...[Read More]
