As heard on air: Eddie Vedder drinks wine from a shoe!

While performing in Sweden, at the end of June, a fan tossed a Red Converse shoe on stage to be signed when Pearl Jam came out to do an encore. Frontman, Eddie Vedder, said he'd do one better. The rest is what happened....

New Music Tuesday! July 1st Edition!

Greetings friends! Shall we take a gander at what's out today?
OK!

SEETHER drops "Isolate & Medicate", their 6th studio album, today with their latest (as of this blog) almost number 1 hit "Words As Weapons". Catch them as part of the UPROAR TOUR in September.

GUNS N' ROSES have released their concert DVD/Blu-Ray filmed in Las Vegas back in 2012 as part of their residency at THE JOINT at the HARD ROCK CASINO: "Appetite for Democracy 3D".

For you HARDCORE fans out there make sure you be on the look out for MADBALL's latest offereing "Hardcore Lives". You'll, also, wanna be on the look out for CORROSION OF CONFORMITY's "IX".

Couple of throwback albums popping up today I'd be remissed if I didn't mention. BON JOVI, for all you HOUSE OF HAIR fans out there, have a dropped "New Jeresey Super Deluxe" edition, 2 CD's/1 DVD. And, "The Division Bell" from PINK FLOYD is seeing itself turned into a 20th Anniversary Box Set! WOW! Can't believe how long that's been out!

Pssst.. Hey kid, want some new music?!?

Gather 'round the ole campfire, children, and let the Reverend Nivens tell ya a story about some of the new music that came out today, May 6th. And yes, last year I became a Reverend... let's begin!

True, talented, musicians, who for some reason don't get the love they deserve in the States, BLACK STONE CHERRY have dropped a new jam today with "Magic Mountain". I just saw they recently landed on the cover of CLASSIC ROCK MAGAZINE outta the UK. While I'm not sure they're classic rock I do know they rock and that's a big mag to get props in! 

CRADLE OF FILTH put out a demo reissue with "Total Fucking Darkness". Keeping with the metal side of things, NAPALM DEATH put out a vinyl pressing of their 2000 album "Leaders Not Followers". 

Amazon is pimping out a new roots album for AC/DC. I've scoured the internet and have yet to find much about it but according to them it's "The roots of AC/DC contains rare recordings from the 60's and 70's of Brian Johnson, Bon Scott plus interviews with Angus and Malcom Young." 

AND mother-fucking DOWN is streaming their "IV - Part 2" EP a week early!

Music. Truly a Gift from the Gods!

The following videos are neither Hard Rock or Heavy Metal, rather they're the undeniable truth that music is a universal language spoken by every living creature on this planet and a gift from the gods! 

First up is what it sounds like when you take the rings of a tree and turn them into sound. Haunting, beautiful, and amazing are just a few words to describe it. 

 

YEARS from Bartholomäus Traubeck on Vimeo.

Next up is a 12 Bar Blues duet in Thailand with a pianist and Peter the Elephant!
Note both animals shaking and grooving to the tune!

It's moments like these that I do appreciate the internet.
