Slowing Down But Still Going!

Found this artical this morning.
Hell of a icon and still going!

M

MOTÖRHEAD was forced to postpone its previously announced fall 2013 European tour until early next year. Lemmy explained in a statement: "We have made the decision because I am not quite ready to hit the road yet, and am working my way back to full fitness and rude health. Don't worry — I'm not about to start promoting veganism and alcohol-free beverages, but it is fair to say that I personally have been reconfiguring areas of my life to make sure I can come back fitter and stronger than ever.
"It disappointed me tremendously to have to say I wasn't quite ready to hit the road yet, but not nearly as much as it would've disappointed me to go out, play some average shows and watch my health give way long before the tour was over! When people come to see a MOTÖRHEAD tour, they expect a MOTÖRHEAD show, and that is exactly what you will get as soon as I am fit and ready to rumble."
Lemmy recently spoke to U.K.'s Classic Rock magazine about his health issues that have caused the band to cancel a number of European festival appearances this past summer — including shows in France, Germany and Russia. The dates were called off when doctors discovered an unspecified haematoma, a pool of leaked blood gathered in Lemmy's muscles. The legendary rocker is also suffering from Type 2 diabetes, diagnosed more than a decade ago, and has had a defibrillator fitted earlier this year to iron out the uneven bumps in his heart.
Lemmy takes two pills every day for his diabetes, which has affected the circulation in his legs. As a result, his legs stiffen and ache if he walks too far and his back hurts if he stands for too long. "But I can still stand at that mic every night and play my songs," he said. "I wouldn't know about the defibrillator if it wasn't for that fucking lump in my chest," he said. "I'm getting better."
Lemmy, who turns 68 years old in December, told Classic Rock he didn't expect to still be here at 30,
"I don't do regrets," he said. "Regrets are pointless. It's too late for regrets. You've already
done it, haven't you? You've lived your life. No point wishing you could change it.
"There are a couple of things I might have done differently, but nothing major; nothing that would have made that much of a difference.
"I'm pretty happy with the way things have turned out. I like to think I've brought a lot
of joy to a lor of people all over the world. I'm true to myself and I'm straight with people."
Asked if his illness this year has made him more aware of his own mortality, Lemmy said: "Death is an inevitability, isn't it? You become more aware of that when you get to my age. I don't worry about it. I'm ready for it. When I go, I want to go doing what I do best. If I died tomorrow, I couldn't complain. It's been good."

Old School New Music Tuesday!!

It seems like everyone kicking new stuff out today is a throwback to the 80's and before!!

**Of course there's MOTORHEAD'S new disc "Aftershock" out today. As mentioned before, LEMMY says he's good and over being sick. Hopefully we'll see a tour!! 

**That sexy old school vixen known as LITA FORD is back today with an album that personifies her return, "The Bitch is Back...Live"! From THE RUNAWAYS to her solo career she's certainly a princess of rock-n-roll!! The disc was recorded at the Canyon Club in Agoura, CA!

**Kicking out their 10th studio album is METAL CHURCH with "Generation Nothing". 

**The Product Description says it all for "Live at the Greek" - "In the Summer and Fall of 1999, one of the best live rock 'n' roll bands and rock's greatest guitarist united for a tour across the States, performing the best songs from the band that virtually invented Rock! Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page joined Chris and Rich Robinson and the rest of The Black Crowes to perform ''Whole Lotta Love,'' ''Heartbreaker,'' ''What Is and What Should Never Be,' ''Hey Hey What Can I Do'' and many more Zep favorites. The band also ripped into blues classics like ''Mellow Down Easy,'' ''Woke Up This Morning,'' the Yardbirds' classic ''Shapes of Things'' and the early Fleetwood Mac number ''Oh Well.'' Now, over a decade later from the original release, this classic collaboration is available for the first time on vinyl. Spanning three discs on white vinyl, ''Live at the Greek'' is a sterling recording of a legendary concert on the nights of October 18 and 19, 1999. This classic live collaboration is available for the first time on a Triple LP set pressed on white vinyl." Yeah... that sounds absolutely sick!! 

**And how about this?! "Thriller: A Metal Tribute to Michael Jackson". With appearences by CHUCK BILLY, CHRIS JERICHO of Fozzy, COREY GLOVER of Living Colour, LAJON WITHERSPOON of SEVENDUST, BUMBLEFOOT & more! 

Here's what I've got coming up, as always, what am I missing?

Manson Branching Out!

Can't Say I did not see this coming and I kind of like the idea of these guys expanding into more mainstream media.
Some may call it a sell-out but I think it is just good business!

Check it out!

M

Marilyn Manson is joining the cast of the hit ABC TV series "Once Upon A Time"Manson will provide the voice for The Shadow, a being which was first seen at the end of the show's second season and has already appeared in the recently started third year. Manson will make his debut on the season's eighth episode, scheduled to air in mid-November.

Show creators and executive producers Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz said in a statement, "We've always been enormous fans of Marilyn Manson. We wanted to cast someone with the vocal ability to make our skin crawl."
The show takes place in the fictional town of Storybrooke, Maine, in which its residents are actually characters from various fairy tales that were transported to the "real world" town and robbed of their real memories by a powerful curse.
The Shadow is a mysterious being that kidnaps young children from their beds to take them back to the fantasy realm of Neverland and steal their souls.
The main storyline of the third season involves the cast traveling to Neverland to search for the character of Henry Mills, who has been snatched by an evil version of Peter Pan.
Manson has appeared in a handful of movies and TV shows before, most recently on the Showtime series "Californication" — where he played himself — and the Sundance Channel program "Wrong Cops".
He has spent most of the past year touring behind his 2012 album, "Born Villain".

**Seattle-Grunge-Gods - Can we call them that? - PEARL JAM are back with their 10th studio album, "Lightning Bolt". As of now, no stops planned for KC on their current run. Perhaps when they're back from New Zealand in 2014!

**Speaking of old school gods, MONSTER MAGNET is back with a spaced-out-trippy-disc in "Last Patrol". I've listened to this, as it's been streaming online for a bit, and I absolutely love it! Sounds very much like children of PINK FLOYD! 

**DAVE DRAIMAN produced TRIVIUM came out today with "Vengeance Falls". If you recall the lads murdered it at last years ROCKFEST. Does that mean we'll, hopefully, see them in 2014? Only time will tell!! 

**The guys and gal of HALESTORM have dropped another Covers EP on us with "REAniMate 2.0" where they drop everything from MANSON, to JUDAS PRIEST, PAT BENATAR & DAFT PUNK!

**DEATH ANGEL's back with "Dream Calls For Blood" and SOILWORK's got a Deluxe Reissue out with "A Predator's Portrait" and MESHUGGAH are releasing what looks to be an entire cataloge of work today!

Never a good headline

Jan Kuehnemund, Guitarist for All-Girl Metal Band Vixen, Dies at 51

 

Originally signed to EMI, the band released its self-titled debut, which spawned the hit singles "Cryin' " and "Edge of a Broken Heart," in 1988.

Jan Kuehnemund, the founding member and lead guitarist for the all-female glam metal band Vixen, passed away on Thursday, Oct. 10, after a long battle with cancer. She was 51. An official statement has not been released.

Kuehnemund was born on Nov. 18, 1961, in St. Paul, Minn., and formed Vixen in high school. She and singer Janet Gardner moved the band to Los Angeles in 1985 and, within two years, the classic lineup was formed with Roxy Petrucci on drums and Share Pedersen on bass. The band was later signed to EMI.

 

Vixen's self-titled debut was released in 1988 and spawned two hit singles, "Cryin' " and "Edge of a Broken Heart." The group appeared in the Penelope Spheeris film, The Decline of Western Civilization II: The Metal Years, and its videos were featured heavily on MTV.

Vixen followed up their breakout success with Rev It Up in 1990, which yielded two singles, "Love Is a Killer" and "How Much Love." The album did not have the same impact as the band's debut, however, and they were dropped shortly after.

Vixen disbanded for several years but reformed with various new members until Kuehnemund returned in 2001. The band had a brief reunion of the classic lineup for VH1's Bands Reunited in 2004, but soon went their separate ways. Kuehnemund continued as Vixen with new members and Gardner, Petrucci and Pedersen formed JanetShareRoxyGina (aka JSRG) with new guitarist Gina Stiles.

JRSG posted the news on its Facebook page early on Friday afternoon.

"It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Vixen founder and lead guitarist, Jan Kuehnemund, who lost a fierce battle with cancer on Thursday, October 10, 2013. Though most well known for her gifted guitar playing and other musical talents, Jan was a rare friend and beautiful in every sense of the word. Humble, thoughtful, loyal and kind, she was the most gracious of women, possessing the quiet strength of a true warrior. She genuinely loved and appreciated her friends and fans more than most could ever know. Those who were most fortunate to have known her and loved her are heartbroken at the loss of Jan, whose spirit will shine through her music eternally.

Jan was very courageous. Never complained. Never gave up. The cancer beat her body but it NEVER broke her spirit at any point.

Up until the actual moment that she died, she really believed she was going back home.

Jan... you will be missed.. but never forgotten."

Hump Day





We've heard quite a few commercials the last few days from Show-Me Cannabis.







What's your take on the legalization of it aka Weed, Dope, Pot, Sticky Icky, Nature's Prozac, Reefer, Mary Jane, Wacky Tabacky, Cheeba, Ganja, Grass?

THE RESULTS WERE UNANIMOUS!

LEGALIZE IT!
