Enjoy This Great Queen Cover

Whereas Steve Vai, Yngwie Malmsteen, Zakk Wylde and Nuno Bettencourt do "Bohemian Rhapsody." This shreds. Enjoy.

Snowy, Winter Day

Happy Sunday, friends. It's been snowing all weekend here in southern Ohio. In fact, we got more than anticipated overnight. I was pretty disheartened when I looked outside. This is a great day to stay inside and listen to some music and relax. Eric and I are actually working on a little house project so we'll probably turn on Hair Nation while we do that - it's pretty much our go-to when doing construction work.

Do you have any favorites you like to crank when the weather sucks? I always like to pretend it's summer. Pretty much all glam bands, save Cinderella, remind me of summer. Cinderella definitely has that winter vibe. But if you want to feel warm, it's great to put on some David Lee Roth or Poison and pretend you're at a festival somewhere, looking for a tree to beat the heat.

But if you want to stay in the moment... there is no better album than Cinderella's Long Cold Winter. One of the best of our favorite era, actually.


Def Leppard Look Back On Recent Tour Dates

Def Leppard are in the middle of the Hysteria & More tour. To celebrate the end of the 2018 UK and Ireland legs, the band just released a video recap of those shows. In June the tour starts up again in Europe, visiting places like Sweden, Denmark, Italy and a stop at the Download Fest. Then there's a big swing through Canada. I imagine a few U.S. dates will get tagged on to the Canadian run, but we'll have to see about that.


NPR Played The Metal Version of 'Baby Shark'

I do not have children. Those of you who do probably know the song "Baby Shark." Well NPR played the song yesterday because it is now making its way to the Billboard Top 40. Then they played the metal version and I nearly wrecked my car.

Here's the original. This will get stuck in your head. (Look at the view count on this!)


Dueling Woodstock Fests

There will be dueling Woodstock Festival to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the original, iconic event. It's sad everyone can't get together to have one big, proper Woodstock party but that's the world we live in now. I'll be in Spain when this is happening - otherwise Eric and I would have likely gone to one of these events. Who knows, maybe this will be carried live like Woodstock '94. I remember watching that on the floor of my childhood bedroom. Aerosmith headlined the Saturday night of that fest and I was so jealous I was too young to be there.


Bonnaroo Lineup Is A Pass For Me

Well, I don't need to spend my money on Bonnaroo, that's for sure. Headliners include Phish, Childish Gambino, Post Malone, the Lumineers and more. I'm totally old because none of these acts do it for me. Phish is playing more than once. I was never into them but I know some folks worship them like gods, so enjoy if that is you. Tickets go on sale tomorrow. This will sell out rapidly.
