Tom Keifer Pays Tribute To Prince

Tom Keifer played M3 Rock Fest over the weekend. During his set, he played "Purple Rain" as a tribute to Prince. It's a nice tribute to be sure. I just wish we could get some other songs as tributes. Prince was prolific - there is more than just "Purple Rain!"

A public memorial for Prince will be held outside of Los Angeles City Hall this Friday at 5 p.m. local time (8 p.m. EDT).


Vince Neil Plays M3... A Little Rough

M3 went down Friday and Saturday in Columbia, Maryland. I poked around for some videos and came across this jewel of Vince Neil doing "Home Sweet Home" below. It's a little rough, I gotta say. Okay, it's a lot rough. Vince sounds terrible but I think he was trying to do a good job.

Apparently Vince only did something like six or seven songs, so a super short set. He really shouldn't have been too winded. At any rate, he looked like he was having fun.


Kip Winger Goes Classical

Pre-orders are open now for Kip Winger's debut classical album Conversations With Nijinsky, Ghosts, A Parting Grace.The album is out May 27th. If you click the video below, you can hear a little taste of what the San Francisco Ballet Orchestra does with Kip's work.


Kaaboo Festival Looks Amazing

Kaaboo Festival goes down September 16-18 in Del Mar, California. There's bands and comedians and both indoor and outdoor entertainment. Aerosmith is a headliner, which is the band's only announced U.S. date for 2016 (so far at least). Other acts performing include Lenny Kravitz, Hall and Oates, Gin Blossoms and more. I wish I could go to this, but I have a work event that weekend.


Ace Frehley and Paul Stanley Release Music Video

They might not love each other, but Ace Frehley and Paul Stanely have a relationship of sorts, so it is no surprise that the duo has teamed up for a cover song.

The pair just covered "Fire and Water" by FREE and they even made a video for the track. The song is from Ace Frehley's Origins Volume 1.

I have to say that Paul and Ace both sound killer on this track.


Glam Alert: Tigertailz Release New Video

Tigertailz just released a video for their cover of Mud’s “Dynamite.” The song is on the band's new album Blast. This is real glam (and really goofy), people.
