#AsHeardOnAir Danny Carey with Primus performing Tool

I'm being a bit hypocritical due to the fact I think it's ridiculous for people to pull out their cell phones and record a concert but I do like me some TOOL & DANNY CAREY & seeing him jam a little "AEnema" is pretty dope. 
Still no word on when we'll get new Tool, so this'll have to do.

Damn, There's A Lot of New Music Out Today!

Not only are we seeing a slew of albums & DVD's out today, but there's been a sh!t-ton of new music announced over the last week! 

First off, SLASH with MYLES KENNEDY & the CONSPIRATORS. These guys keep hammering away with album after album and live show after live show. New album = "World on Fire".

Rockfest alums, and Jeff City natives, SHAMAN'S HARVEST have new jazz out today with "Smokin' Hearts & Broken Guns". These cats have a couple-few shows in their home state of Missouri this & next month. Peep their Facebook page & catch 'em in action! https://www.facebook.com/shamansharvest

I know we've seen the guys from OTHERWISE in action here in KC before. Check out their latest work in "Peace at All Costs". 

On the Metal side of the coin, tons of heavier action out today!

ANTHRAX have out a live DVD in "Chile on Hell". SEPULTURA does too. They're teamed up with LES TAMBOURS du BRONX for "Metal Veins: Alive at Rock in Rio" This one is also out on CD. CANNIBAL CORPSE put out album number 13 today with "A Skeletal Domain". 

Here's what I've heard, rather confirmed, for future release: 

THE DOORS self-made documentary "Feast of Friends" will FINALLY come out this fall, November 11th, on DVD & Blu-Ray. This is the only movie about The Doors made by The Doors! Peep the trailer below. 

 

ROB ZOMBIE has given beginning of next year as the timetable for his latest work. Which he also says is pretty much finished and his best work yet.

Be on the look out for this, also, November the 11th and of course catch them at the Kansas Speedway on Friday October the 3rd.

DO YOU SEE ANYTHING I'M MISSING?

Band Tee Shirts at Uproar Festival!

Great to see all those that came out Friday night for the Uproar Festival at Cricket Wireless Amphitheater aka Sandstone!! Many thanks to SEETHER & POP EVIL who swung by the broadcast deck for quick interviews. As soon as I can find that audio I'll make sure to put it up! Truth be told, I only saw SEETHER & GODSMACK in action since I was on air till seven and got caught chatting it up with some listeners thus didn't see SKILLET in action. 

Some feel Sully, frontman for the SMACK, has a little attitude problem. That he can, from time-to-time, be a bit of a dick, but there's no denying that he's a big talent on stage. He's got mad skills and put them to use, tequila be damned, when singing, jamming the guitar and then - as we've seen - a drum off with Shannon. It's a huge production, complete with pyro and all in attendance seemed to enjoy what they saw!

SEETHER also brought it. In the past we've seen the top of frontman Shaun Morgan's head due to him staring at his shoes whilst playing, perhaps giving the impression he wasn't happy with the audience or himself but this time around all four bandmates, yes there's a fourth dude now, poured their heart out and in my humble opinion stole the show.

I did have some fun playing a little game with myself when I was broadcasting called "Band Tee Shirts That Came Out To Rock"... or something. Without further delay here's the bands I saw Friday night, as represented by the tee shirts they were sported on.

JOHNNY CASH (worn by me ) * GODSMACK * JOAN JETT & THE BLACKHEARTS  
SLIPKNOT * LYNYRD SKYNYRD * RISE AGAINST * MISFITS * POP EVIL 
SICK PUPPIES * ROLLING STONES * ROCKFEST (Originals & Bootlegs)
SLAYER * SHINEDOWN * AVENGED SEVENFOLD * STONE SOUR
RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS * DISTRUBED * SLASH * KILLSWITCH ENGAGE  
SEETHER * COHEED & CAMBRIA * ROB ZOMBIE * FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH
BLACK SABBATH * GWAR * OF MICE & MEN * BLACK SABBATH * DYING FETUS
PIERCE THE VEIL * RAMONES * STEEL PANTHER * NIRVANA 
BON JOVI * BOB MARLEY * DEVIL DRIVER * METALLICA *
BLACK LABEL SOCIETY * THE CULT * ROLLING STONES * INSANE CLOWN POSSE
SUICIDE SILENCE * OZZY * MOTLEY CRUE * PANTERA * NINE INCH NAILS
PANTERA * SUBLIME * PINK FLOYD * KORN * SKILLET * 7 SECONDS * IRON MAIDEN
And this Asshole wore this, of course!
