Thanks to a teen on YouTube, I have faith that rock n' roll is alive, well and will keep on kicking. 17 year old Jacob Deraps records guitar tracks to songs we love and uploads them to YouTube. This kid is smooth - I hope he's in a band, and writing original music. We need him in the scene.
You'll love this: The Treatment's second album is finally available for pre-order in North America. The album is called Running With The Dogs and the video for the song by the same name is out now, too.
You can go ahead and pre-order now on iTunes. You might remember these guys from the KISS/Motley Crue tour a couple years back. This is good stuff ya'll.
Jack Bruce of Cream has died. He was 71. Since I'm a classic rock fan, I thought it was important to mention this news. We should celebrate Jack's voice and bass skills with a classic hit.
Fox News is a legit network with a pile of resources. So imagine my confusion when someone on the Fox assignment desk booked Gene Simmons to comment on Ebola in America. I just don't get it. I'm clearly not shocked in Gene's position (hint: blame Obama) but still... find a politician to say it. Fox has access to just about every current and former Republican in the House and Senate. Statements about travel bans have more credibility from an elected official versus a member of KISS but hey, that's just me.
