Motley 2014

Well after going to Motley shows for 28 years I think I may have seen my last one.
I know they are going to be in Nebraska in November but I don't think I could top this last one.
I have seen Motley from the rafters, to the floor, and snuck my way up to front row many times. (I am not very sneaky I think the security guys just looked the other way.)
I have snagged may cool items over the years. From picks, drum heads, and got a Jager bottle from Tommy a few years ago.
Nikki has spat blood on me, Vince and sweated on me, and I have smelled fresh brewed coffee on Mick as they came out for an encore.
I have had the opportunity to meet the band many times and I can say that for the most part they are a good bunch of dudes.
As a 16 year old kid seeing them (from the nose bleeds) in Iowa (never imagining I would meet them) to getting into radio and seeing them front row and meeting them. Seeing them has given me an opportunity to flashback to those pimple faced fun days.

I know I have turned this into a long story but Motley has been such a big part of my life I just feel a little sad knowing it is over.
I have so many more stories of my Motley fun but I will wrap it up for now.
Till next time!

You know I'm a dreamer
but my heart's of gold
I had to run away high
so I wouldn't come home low
Just when things went right
It doesn't mean they were always wrong
just take this song, and you'll never feel
left all alone...

N-N-New Music Tuesday!!

Well, I can't imagine this is one of those big, weird, crazy coincidences! GODSMACK drops their latest disc today, "1000HP", AND SIXX A.M. puts out their first single off their forthcoming album "Modern Vintage". It's no secret that SULLY & NIKKI don't care much for one another, so I'd guess that Sixx felt like stealing some of Smack's thunder today with the release of their latest tune.

I could be wrong... but I doubt it.

On Monday of this week we got new tunes from SLIPKNOT with "The Negative One" and - if you're keeping track at home - new tunes from LIMP BIZKIT with "Endless Slaughter". Have you heard either? Thoughts?
Here's what's coming down the pike...

Ummmmmm...

So, I am all for bands making some cash.
But if you had told me 30 years ago while jamming out to this song it would sell cookies I would have said you are crazy.
But...just check this out for yourself.

SCORPIONS' mega-hit "Rock You Like a Hurricane" is featured in a brand new commercial for General MillsFiber One cookies. Check it out below.

Commercial description: "Be the man that every woman wants with new Fiber One cookies! These delicious, chewy cookies not only taste amazing, but they are amazing for you!"

"Rock You Like a Hurricane" originally appeared on SCORPIONS' 1984 album "Love At First Sting". The track reached No. 25 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, greatly contributing to the album's success. The accompanying video also received heavy rotation on MTV.
