Motorhead’s Motorboat Cruise
3/11/2014 2:23:00 PM
Imagine a bunch of pasty white skinned people walking around the deck of cruise boat wearing studded leather jackets and vomiting on the deck like a frat party.. yeah, you just saw the future my friend and it’s called - Motorheads’ Motorboat Cruise.
Lemmy and the boys will be joined by Megadeath, Anthrax, and Zakk Wylde as they set sail….. wait there are no sails on a cruise ship.. as they motor out of Miami to Key West and then Mexico.
Can you imagine the look on the faces of customs when this crew disembarks?
It might sound like a metal fantasy dreamed up by some 80’s throwback with a visa card, but it’s very true. You could find youself on this bad boat to hell this September.
“This will be everything you’ve come to expect from a night out with us, except even louder, with more great bands and ...
Sensation: The Story of Tommy
3/11/2014 2:22:00 PM
The making of their iconic album came at a most unusual time in The Who’s career. Pete’s partying was an issue and he wasn’t the only one battling demons at the time. Their recent singles were not exactly making big money. Sure, Magic Bus didn’t to bad, but otherwise it wasn’t exactly a money making machine.
So, the band toured to pay for their next album. Pete had a big idea and wanted to try something new, something totally different – a rock opera.
Sensation: The Story of Tommy is a new documentary out today about the making of this amazing album that eventually sold over 20 million copies and landed itself as one of the best rock albums of all time.
Bad Knee Tedy
3/10/2014 2:11:00 PM
You know your getting old when you need to fix your knees, and hips, and teeth, and hair. Yes my friend, getting old sucks, and even those of us who live drug free lifestyles still must pay the piper known as age.
Even the squeaky clean living of Ted Nudgent couldn’t save him from a case of bad knees. In fact, he had to have both of them replaced, just like the worn out strings on his Gibson semi-acoustic electric guitar.
“Greetings my fellow Nuge facebookers. Sorry I haven’t been on much lately but the double knee replacement surgery knocked me on my ass royal!” said the motorcity madman.
I’m guessing that he did not try some Vulcan mind trick and do the intense surgery without anesthesia, which means he was knocked out on drugs during the procedure. Legal drugs to be sure. I’ll also bet the pain meds he’s ...
William Guarnere Passes at 90
3/10/2014 2:03:00 PM
I imagine most people have never heard of Bill Guarnere, and the news of his passing might seem as just another odd thing to be mentioned in the media. That’s truly unfortunate.
I imagine most people then will never realize the amazing story that he and the rest of his “Band of Brothers” lived through during WWII. Also, very unfortunate.
I could sit here today and try and write up many of the details of his amazing life, his unbelievable accomplishments, tales that would certainly deem the title Hero a worthy fit. But I don’t need to do that, because it’s already been done by men far more skilled in the ways of story writing.
Therefore I suggest you read his book, or the book Band of Brothers: E Company, 506th Regiment, 101st Airborne from Normandy to Hitler's Eagle's Nest by Stephen Ambrose. Then watch the amazing HBO miniseries “Band ...
Phil Rudd Acquitted
3/7/2014 4:04:00 PM
Poor Phil Rudd, the drummer for ACDC has had a hell of a couple of years. Recently, he has been in the news over in New Zealand for having lied on a pilots license renewal. It seems his drug bust right before the Black Ice tour is still haunting him.
You might remember that Phil was busted with pot right before the tour was to begin. With some high priced lawyers and flexible judges the charges were dropped.. not because he didn’t do it.. allegedly… but because if they stuck he would not have been able to tour with the band, would have lost all of his income, and become destitute. The judges understood, since the US would not allow him in the country with drug charges.
Lucky for him, dropping the charges saved his neck, and because they were dropped the license renewal has now gone through ...
