'American Idiot'

Green Day is a pretty amazing band. They got really famous during my high school days and Dookie was a massive album. I'm pretty sure every kid in my high school owned a copy of that album. There were successful albums after Dookie, but it wasn't until American Idiot hit that the band just became other-world massive. I saw Green Day at Lollapalooza when they were touring behind 21st Century Breakdown.

Green Day will tour again this summer. They happen to be playing in Cincinnati on my birthday and I'll probably go.

There's no better song for this day - this weekend - than "American Idiot." I thank Green Day for the best protest song of the past 20 years. We rise. 




New Year, New Quiet Riot Singer

Quiet Riot has a new singer and his name is Seann Nicols (formerly of Adler's Appetite). The band played their first gig together on January 26. Nicols did a fine job but it does make you wonder how long he will last. Quiet Riot has had a hard row to hoe. It probably would have been better for the band to start fresh with a different name after Kevin DuBrow's death, but I suppose that would have made booking gigs harder. Everyone has to eat.

'Fistful of Guns'

A new LA Guns retrospective package is coming soon. It's called Fistful of Guns and features all the songs you would expect plus some awesome demos from the really early days in the mid 80s. I'm definitely interested in this one.


Paul Stanley Gets Hurt, Cancels Shows

Apparently the concussion protocol isn't just for football players anymore. Wishes for a speedy recovery to Paul Stanley.


Off To Holiday

I'm off to Club Tropicana, where the drinks are free. I won't be back for quite some time.


Listen To Stephen Pearcy's New Track 'Ten Miles Wide'

Ok so this song is freaking amazing. Stephen Pearcy is releasing Smash later this month. The newest song to hit the Internet is "Ten Miles Wide." Seriously listen to the guitar work and tell me this doesn't sound like late 80s era RATT? Smash comes out January 27 (via Frontiers) and I'll be a day one buyer. I haven't been this excited for a new record in a long time. This is good stuff.
