Meat Loaf Collapses On Stage... And Vocals Continue

Meat Loaf fainted during a show in Edmonton, Canada Thursday night and now he's recovering well. I'm sure you've seen the video of the incident by now. Sadly, the vocals continued even after Meat Loaf hit the ground. So is he not singing live anymore? Or just using the vocals for a little extra help? And the bigger question - does anyone really sing live anymore? It seems like every show uses backing tracks. Makes me crazy... and sad.

Whitesnake Live Tonight!

I'm seeing Whitesnake live tonight. They are playing an outdoor arena not too far from where I live, so that will be nice. I know quite a few people going to the show, so it should be fun. And the band is playing a greatest hits set, so that is even more awesome. Best of all, Whitford/St. Holmes is opening, so I can get a Brad Whitford guitar fix, too! I'll have a review soon. For now, here's a live clip of Whitesnake from a couple days ago.


Izzy Stradlin Teases New Music!

Izzy Stradlin is currently mixing a new solo song, apparently called "Walkin.'" I guess Izzy really has no interest in the Guns n' Roses reunion, but at least he's creating new songs for us. Click below for the teaser.


Today's Mood

After yesterday's horrific news out of Orlando, I just wasn't in the mood to listen to glam bands. There will be glam tomorrow. Be nice to each other today.


Black Sabbath Announce Date Of Final Show

Black Sabbath will officially call it quits with their last show on February 4, 2017 at Birmingham’s Genting Arena (UK).

The band will play some American dates before that final gig as well. If you've ever wanted to see Black Sabbath live, this is your last shot.
