Slash, Duff McKagan and Gilby Clarke recently reunited during a Slash show in Argentina. Basically it was glorious - I'm jealous of the people who saw this live. The rest of us get to watch the YouTube clips!
Lots of rumors about Van Halen hitting the road, but no real concrete info from the band, but that isn't shocking I suppose.
It makes sense for Van Halen to tour and support their upcoming new release of Tokyo Dome: Live In Concert.
For a little bit, this image below was on Def Leppard's official Facebook page. It was on their website too. Then, poof! gone! So, either something fishy is a foot, or there was a premature announcement and this is really happening. Definitely interesting.
Something I love more than Glam metal is travel. My big hobby now is travel hacking, which is just another way of saying I collect points and loyalty rewards to bring down my out of pocket cost for travel. I read every major travel hacker blog several times each day. Every once in awhile, my passions for travel and Glam sort of cross paths. Yesterday, our friend Bret Michaels tweeted about the Rock Star Suite at the Hard Rock Hotel in Riviera Maya.
The Bret mention is part of a USA Today piece on six great beaches to visit in 2015. Considering Ohio just had another round of winter weather, I'll take about any beach anywhere warm at this point. We're officially two weeks out from spring. I need the warm weather to hurry up.
And shoot, since I mentioned I collect points, if you're looking for a travel rewards credit card, the Chase Sapphire Preferred is great. The link is my referral and if you click through, apply and get approved, I would received 5,000 bonus points. Of course, never sign up for a credit card without thinking a lot about it first - and never carry a balance, especially on a rewards earning card because the APR on those is always sky high. This is a premium card. The annual fee is $95 and you need a pretty high credit score and solid income to get approved. Here is a Credit Karma link to the review of the card.
The link referral is applicable here because the Sapphire Preferred earns Ultimate Rewards points which are transferable to lots of airlines and hotels. So basically I could move over some points to United, fly to Riviera Maya, check out Bret's suite and have a good laugh to myself.
