    F*#! The Grammy's

    in Rock Music

    I have had it with the supposed "mainstream music" disregarding Hard Rock and Metal music like we are some disease to be cut out and disgarded.  So we get about 8 Minutes of real Rock N Roll with AC/DC  (other than a bunch of shots of  Paul McCartney dancing in the aisle to ELO, very disturbing, and a cameo for him performing with Rhianna and Kanye West) and then we get ignored for the remainder of the show. I mean even Jeff Hannemann gets left out of the "In Memoriam" segment, why because he was only in Slayer so he doesn't count? I am officially boycotting this putrid show until they start to acknowledge my favorite music and they rid us of Kayne West. I am so tired of this idiot forcing his views and opinions on us and subjecting to his "singing" (great use of the Auto-tune app) that I am gonna dedicate a portion of this show to my rants and feelings are this subject. So please tune to Hear that and I would love to hear your opinions on this topic.


    I will also give my take on the Quiet Riot Documentary that just saw . I


    We will also turn the page on the footbal season and start our assault on the remainder of the winter sports and of course Baseball, the national past time (maybe). We will spend some time breaking down the off season for both teams and discuss the many issues facing both teams with Pitchers and Catchers ready to report.


    Boy I am  not sure 2 hours is enough time to fit this all in but I will do my best and I look forward to our usual witty banter (ok maybe not). So tune into blogtalkradio.com This coming Thursday Night @ 6:30p.m. est and I will give you my best effort as always.


     


    So please bring the Noize!!!

    Can we just play the game already!!

    in Rock Music

    Deflate Gate! Can we stop with this already? It's just days away from the next national holiday (unofficially), the Superbowl. The matchup between the Patriots and the Seahawks should be a great game, yet all I hear on local radio and the papers is DEFLATE GATE!!!. Listen I understand that people are fascinated with the Patriots and what they perceive is their thumbing of thier nose at the NFL and it's rules, but I think this has been all talked out and I hope we can spend some time breaking downs the ingame match ups and what I think will be the strategy each team will use to win this game. I hope to get you guys to call in and discuss your thoughts on the big game.


    Their is lots to talk about in music news, Michael Sweet and George Lynch just released a cd and I will give my review, Who is playing drums for AC/DC on their um coming tour?, Motley Crue announced where and when their final show will be played and I saw the video from their late night television apperance so we can discuss all of that and much much more.

    Lovebite, Hard Rock/Sleaze out of Birmingham UK

    in Rock Music

    Today, Pop Art Painter, Jamie Roxx welcomes the Birmingham UK Hard Rock/Sleaze band Lovebite. 



    www.lovebiteofficial.com
    www.youtube.com/user/lovebiteoffical
    www.twitter.com/lovebiterules
    www.reverbnation.com/lovebiterules


    The powerful and boisterous group formed by virtuosic front-man Jonny Sparks boasts a striking visual presence and hedonistic reputation rivaled by few. Lovebite's music is complex and gritty,with a solid hard, driving base; they are dark, sleazy, dirty and powerful - everything that good rock should be.
    Having established themselves in record time as one of the UKs premier up-and-coming glam/sleaze bands with their heart-pounding and high-minded debut album 'LOCK 'N' LOAD'– Lovebite deliver an uncharacteristic fusion of hard, thrashy guitars and unique songwriting techniques, with a limber rhythm section that keeps the music loose yet powerful… and HIGHLY addictive.
    With the zeitgeist dictating that the relevance of an album as an art form is under close scrutiny, debut album LOCK 'N' LOAD is a superlative, rip-roaring triumph that simply must be experienced from start to finish.

    in Rock Music

    Joe and I were extremely saddened to hear of the tragic loss of Staten Islands A.J. Pero last Friday while on tour with his band Adrenaline Mob. AJ was a fixture around Staten Islands Metal scene for over 30 years, starting with one of Staten Ilsands best bands,Cities. But of course he reached international fame with Metals Twisted Sister. We will dedicate this show to his memory and all songs played during this show will have his signature drumming in them. I hope you will tune in and listen as we talk about this elite musician and as every post and article I read states, a true gentlemen. I hope to have a few guests call in and talk about him and generally celebrate his life. Of couse we will open the phone lines and let you guys call in and talk about some of your memories of this incredible drummer and person.


    We aso will have a live interview with Producer Joe Barresi, who has recorded some of musics biggest stars and also worked at SOUND CITY one of the most famous recording studios in the world. Listen in as we talk with Joe about some of his experiences and how, this incredible guitar player / musicians wound up at the console.


    There will some sports talk as well (NCAA Tournament, Local team sports, etc) and I will touch on Wrestlemania. I am not as big a fan of wrestling as I used to be but I thouht it might be fun to discuss the very first Wrestlemania during the show.


    Anyway, we will do our best to honor one of metals best drummers during our broadcast, so please tune in this Thursday March 26th at 6:30 p.m. est to "Hard Rock N' Sports with Tom and Joe" and as usual call in (347) 826-9934 to talk with us as well
