Quiet Riot Announces New Singer

Seann Nicols, formerly of Adler's Appetite, is now the new singer of Quiet Riot. I used the Blabbermouth embed below so you could see the new band photo.

The Quiet Riot reboots are hard for me, but this time it's a little more interesting because the band is actually working on new music. A new album will come out in early 2017 via Frontiers.

Hardline has a video for their new song "Take You Home." It's from the upcoming album Human Nature. The new record comes out October 14. Will you pick this up?

RATT Reunion?

Monsters of Rock West cruise is happening right now and this past weekend, RATT performed as the surprise band.

Three members of the classic lineup, including Stephen Pearcy, bassist Juan Croucier and guitarist Warren DeMartini jammed together and were joined by Carlos Cavazo and Jimmy DeGrasso.

The band isn't really going by RATT right now and there are lgal issues with the name. Drummer Bobby Blozter and Warren DeMartini share ownership of the name. Blotzer has his own version of the band going now.

Regardless of what you call them, it is pretty cool these guys showed up as the "surprise" band for the cruise. I'm so jealous of everyone on board! Here's a clip:



A Little Different: 90s Hip Hop 

I was in high school during the late 90s. Hip hop was huge then. In a lot of ways, 90s hip hop replaced 80s metal on MTV. Think about it: the artists were larger than life. The videos were mostly big parties. There was a lot of action and fun.

Last night, I took a little trip down memory lane and listened to some of my old school favorites like TuPac, Notorious B.I.G. and Big Pun.

In December, my husband and I will celebrate 14 years of marriage. We've been together much longer than that, as we started dating in high school. During high school, he drove a lime green Nova with huge speakers. The car was kind of crappy, but it got us around and people always knew when he was coming: his speakers would bump for miles and miles! For a long time, hip hop was the only music he would listen to and even enjoy. To this day, we pop on a little 90s hip hop if we need a positive mood boost. When we got married, we entered our very traditional wedding reception to TuPac's "California Love." I'm sure no one really got why, but this song choice was a nod to our early days together.

With everything seemingly so nasty in the world right now, I decided I needed to take a little mental vacation and have some fun. I don't really care for any of the new hip hop or rap out today, but man, the old school stuff sure was off the chain. Here are a few of my 90s hip hop tracks. Do you have any faves?

Lady Gaga Announced As Super Bowl Performer

The rumors were true: Lady Gaga will perform at Superbowl 51 in Houston on February 5. I'm interested to see what she comes up with and who she brings as a guest performer to share the stage with her. I suspect it will be a rock band or at least a famous guitarist. Thoughts on this?
