I had a completely different post in mind this morning when I logged first on.
Before I ever post I always check www.blabbermouth.net just to see the latest music headlines. Typically, all Blabbermouth ever posts is Nikki Sixx and KISS updates - but today, I hit the motherload.
There was an article on the Motley Cruise. As many of you know by now, I'll be joining that voyage of debauchery. Here's the bulletin:
"Birmingham, Alabama-based hard rockers LYNAM have joined the musical lineup of Vince Neil's Motley Cruise. Vince himself will perform, as will the reunited RATT, Skid Row and Slaughter."
At first, my hackles went up: "Who the hell is Lynam and why are they performing on my cruise?" Then I listened to one of their videos. It was so good, it made me want to roll around on the floor a little bit.
In fact, Lynam are so good they better just start practicing for Rocklahoma right now, because I assume there will be contests for non-80s bands to play early on the main stage. If they enter, they will win.
Lynam is now my new conquest. I must interview them and spread their message. Oh yes, I must.
Watch this video: Lynam "Tanis." You'll notice lead singer Jacob Bunton Lynam is wearing a Fastway shirt. That's so glam!
