Ok, it's time for more Rocklahoma rumors because they are swirling around the Internet like a swarm of flies at a picnic.
I might as well help stir the pot.
Last night I received an email from Lee Pistolero, lead singer of Gypsy Pistoleros. He was talking about the extra night of Rocklahoma and how his band and Tigertailz will be performing.
He also said Nikki Sixx is rumored to perform that night.
When I read that, I was ready to kick something. As I said before, my travel plans are set and moving things around is going to be like an act of a Republican-controlled Congress.
Sixx, along with members of L.A. Guns, (perhaps BOTH versions of that band!), Bang Tango, Chip Z'nuff and others will possibly participate in an 80s jam.
I say "possibly" because the line-up in is in question at this point, but I'm trying to get details confirmed.
In other news W.A.S.P. is in the process of canceling nearly every date of their planned summer tour. Right now, it's not clear if Rocklahoma is one of those dates, but my assumption would be that Blackie and company will still play their Sunday night set at the glam fest.
The glam mistress is on the case and I'll try to get some answers soon, dear readers!
A late delay in the updates, dear readers.
I'm out of town and haven't been around the computer. Still, I called Catch the Fever Music Festivals out in Oklahoma and inquired about the extra night. The receptionist told me that that the line-up was simply "tribute bands."
When I asked about Gypsy Pistoleros and Tigertailz, the same receptionist confirmed this appearance but said no other "celebrities" were expected for the extra night. This only half-satisfies my suspicions, so I'll be calling agents on Monday when I get back to my desk.
