Phil Varone served as guest host on a Las Vegas morning show the other day. Seemed like a natural fit for the rest of Saigon Kick to stop by and perform "Love Is On The Way" for the viewers. Saigon Kick was in Vegas for a show at Vamp'd.

The Grammy Awards Announce Metal Nominees

Posted on Saturday, December 6, 2014 at 12:01AM by Registered CommenterAllyson B. Crawford | Comments13 Comments

The Grammys just announced nominees for the 57th annual awards show. The nominees for the best metal performance are below. 

ANTHRAX - "Neon Knights" from Ronnie James Dio - This Is Your Life

SLIPKNOT – "The Negative One" from .5: The Gray Chapter

TENACIOUS D – "The Last In Line" from Ronnie James Dio - This Is Your Life

MASTODON – "High Road" from Once More 'Round The Sun

MOTÖRHEAD
 – "Heartbreaker" from Aftershock

My opinion? I don't understand Tenacious D in this category, nominating cover songs is weak and I think Slipknot should win. Simple as that. What do you think? 

The awards show is set for February 8, 2015. 

Steven Tyler, Nuno Bettencourt Share Stage

Steven Tyler and Nuno Bettencourt were recently in South Africa for a press event. Both guys were there to perform with supergroup Kings of Chaos. Tyler and Bettencourt jammed together on "More Than Words" at the presser and it was epic. You can tell they hadn't rehearsed the song much more than one time - Steven is even reading the words. But they gave it a go and the results are pretty awesome. I mean, think about it: Steven Tyler knows that every performance he gives is recorded and watched around the world immediately. He gave it his all, and I love that! Oh and you can really hear how strong Nuno's voice is here -- also great!


Joe Perry Rocks Baked Beans

My mom emailed me days ago and said she saw Joe Perry on the show Home & Family. He was making baked beans and talking about his new book. I didn't think much of it. After all, I'm at work when talk shows are on... so I was so pleased to see the clip pop up online. Who knew you could put so much crap into baked beans?!

Bring Back Glam! turns eight today, if you can believe it. That means more than 3,000 articles about hair bands! Classic. Seems like a great time to "Rock Me!"


Farewell Bobby Keys

Posted on Wednesday, December 3, 2014 at 12:01AM by Registered CommenterAllyson B. Crawford | Comments2 Comments

Bobby Keys, saxophone player for the Rolling Stones, has died. He was 70. He's on recordings like "Brown Sugar" and "Live With Me." Keys was with the Stones for more than 40 years. While he was never an official band member, his musicianship can't be denied. I can't even imagine being in one job that long. Quite a legacy. The Rolling Stones released an official statement after Bobby's death:

"The Rolling Stones are devastated by the loss of their very dear friend and legendary saxophone player, Bobby Keys. Bobby made a unique musical contribution to the band since the 1960s. He will be greatly missed."
