Freakers Ball 2011


That was a hell of a show!
Sidewise, Hatebreed, Anthrax, and FFDP!
They all killed it!
But for me I have to say Anthrax was the hi light of the night.

Something about that band turns a good time in toa hell of a party!

I may be a bit biased from growing up with them but it sure was fun to get to see them live again!
Thanks to all of you who came out for the party!
See ya at the next one!

What a weekend!
Zombie came in for a Low-Dough with us and I have to say that was one of the best shows I have seen him do in a long time.

It was crazy hot out there but thank you to all who made it out and hung through the heat!
And even more thanks to you for making sure everyone was taken care of when they did get too hot.

Saw a lot of people fade out during the show but you grabbed them and sent them over the rail to get taken care of.

Thank you for that!
Damn that was a good show!

A Very Motley Birthday!


Well last week was my birthday and I could not have thought of a better way to spend it than with my favorite band of all time...Motley Crue!
Mick looked better than he has in years, Tommy and Nikki were fantastic, and Vince did a really good job.

It was a hell of a way to spend my birthday!
And thank you to all who called in and texted birthday wishes!
It was a hell of a week!

17 Days...

Yup, that it!
It is almost like the countdown on 24.

17 Days to the biggest party of the year!
Rockfest 2011!
Hopefully you are all set with tickets and ready to go.

If not get them soon!
Remember Rockfest has SOLD OUT for the past 5 years.

I know you want to win them but that is not as easy as it sounds and it is always better to have tickets in hand instead of freaking out the day of and hitting up a scalper!
Plus this year I am going to get you hitched!
Every year we get a bunch of wedding requests for Rockfest and this year we are going to do it.

Yours truly can get you all legal on the big day!
Click over to the Rockfest page and check the FAQ section for all the details on what you need to bring!
Come on...could you think of a better place to tie the knot?
Till next time!

So I was thinking...

...About Rockfest this morning and all of the fun stuff that I have seen or done over the past years and was trying to figure out what my best Rockfest memory was.

There have been many but I think last year has to be the winner.

As I was doing my broadcast looking over the crowd.  Everyone was caked in mud and soaking wet (big shock)

A mosh pit fired up right in front of me and  everyone was having a blast knocking each other around.

Well, as it progressed I noticed one guy (who was fully caked in mud) all of a sudden loose his jeans.

Nothing but a white ass hanging out!
I started to laugh but with the speed of a Ninja the guy hit the ground (I'm guessing a bit embare-assed that his jeans were down around his ankles) and the entire group that he was moshing with closed in around him.

In less than a second I see Mr. Bare Ass being hoisted back up by the belt loops.

Yes, his fellow moshers had come to his rescue!
There was a brief "you ok man" look among the group and the mosh was back on!

That right there is what I feel Rockfest is!
You may not know the guy or girl that you are next to but if your ass his hanging out they will help you get your jeans back on!

Can ya top that?

Rockfest 2011!

As of RIGHT NOW in one week we will know everything about Rockfest 2011.

So if you have some good ideas and are placing bets with your friends now would be the time to get after it!
Also every year I hear from people saying that they cant afford to get their tickets during Rockaholic pre-sale when that are cheaper.

Start scratching up the cash this week!

No sense in paying more than you need to for your tickets!
Till next time!

Ps. The Bob has authorized me to give out one hint...More than one of the bands has a "A" in their name! (thats all he gave me)

Kid Rock!


Damn that was a good show!
I have been lucky enough to see Kid many times and although this show did go heavy on the new stuff it was still fantastic.

Kid in my opinion is one of the last great performers that are still on the road.

He does it all.

The lights, the fire, and the strippers!

God Bless America!
Till next time!
Good guessing so far!

Now that I have your attention I would like to wish you a very happy Valentine's day!

Looks like a nice sunny day out there!

So, you read any good books?
Hummm. Sounds good.

Might have to pick that one up.

Well, guess I had better get going....

What...Rockfest info?
Not yet!
But yes it is on and we should have ALL the details here in about a month!
Till next time!

Ps. feel free to make a guess!

Still Got It!


Yeah I am talking about Ozzy!
That man has been through the ringer and has forgotten more stuff that I could ever know but when it comes to a show DAMN!
Last week before the show I had quite a few people calling in saying that they really thought that they should go to the show because "this may be one of the last times to see him"...Well I have been thinking that for about 15 years!
I guess Sharon might let him retire sometime but for now he still has it!
What a show!
See you at the next one!

Ever had one of those days where you were not really sure where to start!
I am in one of those myself right now.

It is the start to a new year still and we already have a bunch of cool stuff going on.

Where to begin...How about this weekend.

Friday night we have a  listening part with Rev Theory. Where you get a chance to here their new CD before anyone else.

Still time to get in on this over on the contest page.

Then we dive over to see Ozzy and Slash on Saturday night!
That is going to be a hell of a show.

I could not think of a better pairing between those two!
Then next week Buckcherry will be in town with Hellyeah and Linkin Park will be coming through!
All I can saw is DAMN!
This is going to be a hell of a year!
Rest up it is about time to get busy!
See you out there!

Ps. The pic has nothing to do with any of the above. It just made me laugh!

That Was A Hell Of A Show!


Friday night we had the opportunity to check out Shinedown doing a all acoustic set and hopefully you were one of the few that got a ticket.

It was a crazy fast sell out for this one (less than a hour) but it was incredible!
Between songs Brent gave us some insight as to what the songs were about.

Some of the stories were funny and thoughtful and some were down right tear jerking.

If you did'nt make it to the show.

There is still hope for you!  They were filming it!
The DVD should be out next year.

Till next time!

Dont Miss It!

So as I am sure you heard this morning we have made the announcement on Twisted Christmas!
This is going to be a hell of a show!
Hell Yeah, Red Line Chemistry you are familiar with and the two new ones Hail The Villain and A New Revolution are really good as well.

I have only had a chance to see them once but they both put on a hell of a show!

I think you will be more than happy with this one!
And for $ 9.89 you can NOT go wrong!
Hell you cant go to a bar show for that kind of money anymore!
Now remember that the Rockaholic pre-sale starts Wednesday morning at 10am.

Make sure you get in there and get your tickets ASAP!
This is one you will not want to miss!
Don't risk missing it because of a sell out!

See ya there!

Freakers 2010!


That was a hell of a show!
Yes this weekend we took over the Midland once again for Freakers Ball!
Thank you to everyone who made it out for the party.

The entire night was kick ass but I have to say that Drowning Pool sounded better to me than I had ever heard them!

Sevendust absolutely KILLED it and FFDP...Well what can you say about those guys other than KICK ASS!
And thank you to everyone who came out in costume!
What a night!

My only regret of the night was my phone died right after Sevendust so I did not get more pictures!

Till the next one!


Ps. And yest that was Westward dressed as the "Tooth Ferry"!

Holy crap that was a great show!
This has been a great summer for shows and there are still a lot of good ones on the way but I would say that Slash by far is the best of the year.

Great mix from Solo and Snakepit days!
But for me getting to see the GNR and Velvet Revolver stuff blew me away!
I never did get to see GNR back in the day but feel like I made up for it at the show.

Rocket Queen was by far the coolest thing I have ever seen.

Then he jumped into a little blues jam!

I was blown away!

Miles did a killer job all the way around.

That guy can sing his ass off and did a fantistic job.

Who needs Axel?

Well, it has a been a few days since Johnny's Birthday Bash and I have almost recovered!
What a party.

If you were there you know what I am talking about.

If you have never had a chance to "Feel The Steel" then you need to make it to one of their shows at some point!
From the big hair riffs to the comedy in between you just cant beat that band!
And did I forget to mention how many girls seem to loose their shirts at a Steel Panther show...Nuff said!
Better jump out for now!
See you at Slash Thursday!

What a week!


Man, talk about a lot of good stuff going on.

It all started a week ago tonight we had the CD release party for Red Line Chemistry.

The boys did a killer job and congrats one making it into the bigs!

Then we had the Uproar Tour in town with Disturbed/A7X/Halestorm/HeallYeah and more.

Killer show even though I forgot to put on my sunscreen and burned the hell out of my head. (ps. I thought HellYeah killed it)

Now this week is flying by!
Johnny's birthday bash is Friday with Steel Panther and Craig Gass! (make sure you listen to win some tickets!)

Then Saturday night out in Bonner Springs for a free show with Rev Theory.

This has been one of those weeks that is just going too fast and is just loaded with good stuff!

Now I know you may be saying to yourself that I forgot the Slayer show....Well, I had planned to make it but I became a uncle on Monday so I had to go out and meet the little guy!

And yes. If you think I look scared in the picture I am.  That is the newest baby I have ever held!
Lets keep this going!
See you Friday at Johnny's Birthday!

Worthstock 2010!


Well that was a hell of a day.

I was hot, sweaty, and having a blast for 12 straight hours!

If you are not sure what I am talking about.

Saturday we took over Worth Harley Davidson North for the grand opening of the new store.

Worth had it all for us!
Beer, bikes, BBQ, and bands!
The bands were great!

Jackyl always kills it, Nigel was great, Federation did it up, LPP kicked 10 kinds of ass, and I was really pleased with Billy Ray!
And did I forget to mention The Flaunt Girls were there as well!?
It was a great time!

At one point I was walking around and saw Rick Worth just standing there with the look of "what the hell did I get myself into" and then he just started to smile!

As we were heading home in the line of bikes with the wind blowing I almost felt as if I was leaving Sturgis.

I would like to say thank you very much to Worth Harley Davidson North for throwing one hell of a party and I think we should do it again next year!

Till next time!


Ps. Dont forget that this weekend I have the JDRF Thunder Run up at Worth!
Be there about 10 for pre-reg.

All the cash we raise goes to fight juvenile diabetes!
Its a great ride for a great cause and we will have Shamens Harvest playing at the end for you!
Come on out!

Well it has been just over a week since the big party and what a week it was.

With the media climbing all over us for "the destruction" of Liberty Memorial.

For the record it looks good out there.

Yes there was mud and some grass was smashed down but that happens every year.

And yes we do fix it every year!

I would say that since we have taken Rockfest back out to Liberty Memorial we have made the park a better place.

Yes it will cost a few bucks to re-seed but I cant imagine a better place to have Rockfest.

Rockfest has always been a show for you and the cash we can give to the Liberty Memorial is just a added bonus.

On a side note if you have never had a chance to go check out the museum there at the Memorial you really should.

I am a bit of a history nerd and would say it is put together really well.

It is one of the best I have been to!

So once again thank you very much for coming out to Rockfest, I hope you have made your full recovery, and are ready to do it again next year!

We made it!


Well Saturday started out kind of sketchy.

It was raining fairly hard and the temp was not what I would consider warm to say the least.

But we did it!
Rockfest 2010 is now in the books and I had a blast.

I was cold, muddy, and soaked to the bone but I really think I had more fun at this one than any other Rockfest to date.

I love it all.

The mudslides and wrestling!

I did see at one point a guy in the pit accidentally drop his pants because of all the mud and then  he himself hit the ground.

Everyone stopped for a second picked up the guy and helped him get his pants back up then got back to the mosh! (lets face it you really don't want to slam into a guy with his pants down around his ankles)

And the bands were killer.

From Taddy Porter to Godsmack!
There were a few stand out moments for me.

Lizzy coming on stage with Seether to do "Broken" the drum solo during Godsmack, the look on the lead singers face of Taddy Porter as he came out to open the show and saw all of you there (priceless).

The list goes on and on but I will not bore you with a bunch of words.

You were there!
Thank you so much!
Lets do it again!

Getting close now.

Twelve days from now we will be tearing it up at Rockfest.

I just hope that you are as ready as I am.

Rockfest to me has really become a lot like Christmas to me.

It seems that I start looking for hints and clues around the first of the year.

Now here it is just days away.

Lots of questions coming in as far as times for the bands on stage and at the autograph booth.

Jump over to the Rockfest page for all of those details.

Talked to Bob this morning and found out that the hotel packages are SOLD OUT and that the tickets are getting close.

I don't need to tell you this but get your tickets as soon as you can.

All of your friends are going to be there and it just would not be the same if you did not make it!

Till next time!
See you in twelve days!

Another great show!


Made it out to the Nickelback show last night and I have to say those guys really do put on a hell of a show.

Got stuck in traffic on the way out so I missed Sick Puppies but got in for the whole set of Shinedown.

I have never seen those guys put on a bad show and last night was no exception.

As far as a band that can put the crowd right into the action they are the kings of it.

Also nice to have the tribute to Dime during Simple Man.

Breaking Benjamin did a really good set.

They kind of kicked it up a notch and did allot of the harder stuff.

Nickelback was amazing as well.

They have a week off so I think they had a bit more fun with the set than I remember from the last time they were in.

From Burn It To The Ground to the Garth Brooks and GNR covers they put on a hell of a show.

One part in particular that I enjoy with Nickelback is during Picture they roll lots of photos from their past and put in a bunch of picture from KC.

All in all it was a great show!
Till next time!


Ps. Get your Rockfest tickets! I want to see you there!

Two word for you...


O my god ac/dc kicked soo much ass last night I hope you were there becuse it was the best show I have ever seen in my life! Really!

Ok, that might have been more than two word but you get the point!

I know AC/DC has been around for a long time but for a band that started out in '73 they can still bring it like no one else.


I have had the honor to see many great concerts but last night will go down as one of the best in my book!

For Those About To Rock  (thank you AC/DC!)
