If you do not own Belladonna, you need to buy it. Right now. I’m serious…right NOW.
I damn near wore this record out. In fact I am ordering a cd right now since I have parted with my vinyl collection. This is a 1981 release, and when I went to get a link for this post, it was ranked #1551. There’s a reason for that. Trust me.
“Gold Dust Woman” is, technically, a Fleetwood Mac song. But let’s face it, Fleetwood Mac was Stevie’s backup band. There I said it. Sue me.
There are several ways to get my attention, and some of them don't even involve blood, gore or sacrificing your first born.
A) If you are a label or PR agency, add me to your mailing list. For individual bands, this could get a bit overwhelming, so larger entities representing multiple artists only please. Unless say, you're Rob Zombie or something. Rob, you can feel free to email me to your heart's content.
B) See that little gray "dropbox" on the right? Use it to send me tracks or albums to feature on the blog and possibly be reviewed (full length cds/eps only for review)
C) Send me the actual cds for review
D) Send me your films to review
E) Send me cool memorabilia, music, dvds or tickets to give away
That's not so hard right? Right!
My Alexa rank* is dropping faster than a virgin's panties on prom night, so get in at the ground level before this sucker makes it big.
(*Alexa measures traffic rankings to websites, and the lower the number the better. It's dropped about 10 million in the last 10 days.)
PS. Email link is to your right under the dropbox.
Seminal ’50s honky tonk stylist and Country Music Hall of Fame member Carl Smith, 82, died Saturday (Jan. 16) at his home near Nashville in Franklin, Tenn. The specific cause of death was not made public.
Okay, stop being politically correct and admit it. When you think Lilith Fair tour, you think somewhat masculine women who eschew meat, makeup and Bic razors. And usually boys. Like me, you probably overlook this estrogen fest, but check THIS out:
Heart. Loretta Lynn. Emmylou Harris.
Who gives a shit about the rest of the bill. Those are worth the price of admission alone.
If you guys haven’t checked out Steven Blaqart’s “Blaqart Radio” and “Action Time! Radio,” you need to tune in post haste. He has some great interviews and playlists of songs you probably haven’t heard of but definitely should have.
This particular show features Vic Victor of the Koffin Kats, and they talk about yours truly a bit as well…
This Thanksgiving I gave thanks by airing an interview I did with Vic Victor of The Koffin Kats!! We talk about everything from their brand new album Forever For Hire
to naked photo shoots with Diana Price to self afflicted entertainment.. this show also includes archived clips from The Quakes and The Limit Club!!!
Apparently Tom Araya joins Pete Townshend as another casualty suffering injury in the name of rock and roll.
Araya has developed a back injury requiring surgery, and resulting in the cancellation of Slayer’s immediate tour plans that include
the American and Canadian Carnage Tour dates that were set to kick off
on January 18, as well as the band’s UK/European tour scheduled for
March and April. Booking agents for both Slayer
already hard at work to see if these dates can be rescheduled, so those
holding tickets are asked to sit tight as more info will be announced
as progress is made.
The headbanging Araya, known for aggressively swinging his long mane of
hair while performing, began experiencing back problems while on the
band’s Australian/New Zealand/Japanese tour last October. In spite of
his rapidly increasing pain and discomfort, he carried on with the
tour, but immediately upon returning home saw an orthopedic specialist
who diagnosed a Cervical Radiculopathy. The rocker initially did not
want to take the major surgery route, so the specialist recommended a
series of minimally-invasive procedures. While those procedures have
resulted in some improvement, Araya continues to deal with intermittent
bouts of severe pain, numbness and muscle spasms. The surgical
procedure that Araya will undergo, called an Anterior Cervical
Discectomy with Fusion, is a relatively routine practice and the
recovery rate is excellent.
So there you have it kids. Bring ear plugs if you’re going to be close to the stage. And bang your head…but not too hard.
