Are We About To See The Old Axl?

A lot of us have been wondering what happened to Axl Rose over the past year. He seems calm, happy and obviously Guns n' Roses is touring and he's also out with AC/DC. All the crazy hissyfits seemed over. It's like we got a new, gentler Axl.

All is well... except for sending DMCA take down notices to Google to have "Axl fat memes" removed from the Internet. Look, I get it. Axl gained some weight and people poked fun. He didn't (doesn't) like it - but who would? The good news is that Axl has slimmed down, he's back fronting a live band and making a ton of cash. Petty things shouldn't bother him... but alas here we are.

I guess Google hasn't complied with the takedown request because the ownership of the original photo is in question. Click the article below for the full, convulted story. Craziness. 


Who Should Front AC/DC?

As you already know, Axl Rose is singing for AC/DC right now. Brian Johnson had to leave the band due to hearing issues. Now, he's apparently got new in-ear monitors, his hearing is better... and he might want to come back to the band. What a conundrum. Would both Brian and Axl sing for the band? Or just Axl? Or bring back Brian full stop? You decide below. Discuss.

Neither, Just Retire Already!

SIXX: A.M. Covers Motley Crue... Not Good

I guess Nikki Sixx is looking to drum up some press or something because SIXX: A.M. just covered Motley Crue's "Live Wire" for a French radio station. The cover is some acoustic "re-imagined" version or whatever. It's basically horrible, as you would assume. Here I thought Nikki was done with Motley tunes forever. I guess not.


Remember When A RATT Show Was A Big Deal?

Picture it: Osaka, Japan, 1991. RATT is still a pretty big band. The core remains intact. The stage show remains huge. The way things are with the band now (can we even say RATT is a band at this point?) seeing these old clips make me sad. Sometimes I just wish I could get Stephen Pearcy and Bobby Blotzer on the phone and broker a reunion beginning with "Check your ego" and end with "You won't be broke." Oh well I guess. Thankfully YouTube has me covered when I need a fix of RATT live... even if the footage is over 20 years old.

'Don't Stop Me Now' - Queen +Adam Lambert Live

This is an epic performance. Queen + Adam Lambert performed at Rock In Rio Lisboa festival in Lisbon, Portugal last month. Just last night, Queen released a piece of pro-shot footage from the performance. It's the song "Don't Stop Me Now" and it is so good.

Now, I know there are plenty of you that say Adam Lambert isn't Freddie Mercury. Well, of course he's not. Freddie is and was the voice of Queen. But he is gone and Adam is honestly the next best thing. He's great for the band and helps bring in a younger fan base. Also, I'm still salty he came in second on American Idol all those years ago. But maybe that was a blessing. If he'd won, he probably wouldn't be sining for Queen right now.

Man I wish I could see them live.


Absolutely Amazing Classic Def Leppard Clip

Happy Friday! Today, enjoy an amazing 1980 performance of Def Leppard doing "Hello America." The clip is from a Dutch TV show. The band was so young here. I love it!

I got several texts about this. I'm not going, eventhough the show is stopping twice in Ohio. I'm trying to save money for a bigger goal, so my shows are now on the back burner. Hard choices and being an adult and all that. Did you get your tickets? I'm looking for someone to write a review of one of these shows - if you're going to a stop, please email me at if you'd like to write a review.
