The Roth Show -- New Video

Posted on Monday, June 30, 2014 at 12:01AM by Registered CommenterAllyson B. Crawford | Comments12 Comments

One of our perennial faves, David Lee Roth, just released a video clip for his performance with the Kabuki Orchestra doing "The Oo-oka River Blues."

The performance is from the Onkio Haus in Tokyo, Japan. Roth splits his time between Japan and America. I give David Lee Roth a lot of props for sharing his love of Japanese culture through various video clips, some straight music and others funny or quirky.

I suppose releasing lyric videos is the en vogue thing these days... and now KIX has one for their new single "Love Me With Your Top Down." Friday is a great day to rock out to new KIX for sure. This track just sounds like summer! 

KISS and Def Leppard Current Tour Setlist

Posted on Thursday, June 26, 2014 at 12:01AM by Registered CommenterAllyson B. Crawford | Comments23 Comments

Let's discuss the current setlists that KISS and Def Leppard are using on their summer tour together. I'll be seeing the show next month in Cincinnati and I'm more excited about Def Leppard than KISS. I'm a bigger Lep fan and that's just the way it is. Still I wish the band would shake it up a bit and offer some other songs in their set. I can't complain too much - my faves "Animal," "Hysteria" and "Bringin' on the Heartbreak" are all there. But would it kill them to throw in something like "Slang?" I mean, that was a single. I can totally do without "Let's Get Rocked" and/or "Rock of Ages."

Let It Go
Love Bites
Let's Get Rocked
Two Steps Behind
Bringin' on the Heartbreak
Switch 625
Armageddon It
Pour Some Sugar on Me
Rock of Ages

The KISS setlist is a little more inventive and all the classics are represented. I'm sure some die-hard KISS fans are clamouring for some more obscure tracks, but that isn't what these co-headline tours are about I suppose. 

King of the Night Time World
Cold Gin
War Machine
Hide Your Heart
Christine Sixteen
Shout It Out Loud
I Love It Loud
Makin' Love
Psycho Circus
Let Me Go, Rock 'N' Roll
Black Diamond
Detroit Rock City
Rock and Roll All Nite 

So, what do you think of the sets? What would you drop and add if you were in charge?

New Robert Plant Track

Posted on Tuesday, June 24, 2014 at 12:01AM by Registered CommenterAllyson B. Crawford | Comments6 Comments

Robert Plant has released a new track called "Rainbow." The song is from the upcoming album Lullaby and... The Ceasless Roar. The album will be released September 9.

I have to admit, "Rainbow" isn't exactly your typical Robert Plant work... it's very sleepy. Still, I'm open to giving the entire album a fair chance.
