It’s an understatement to say that 2016 has been a bad year for Rock. Now Prince is gone.
I’m going to venture to say that, since his “Piano & Microphone” tour was announced and launched pretty much out of the blue… I’m wondering if his recent health issues were more than just “The Flu”, and did he know that he only had a short time left with us?
Could this simple tour have been a conscious farewell like that of David Bowie?
I hope you had the chance to see this amazing legend perform in some capacity. The show here at the Fox [More]

On This day in 1986… “5150” the first of FOUR Number One Van Halen Albums was released… Those 4 featured Sammy Hagar as the new lead vocalist! Hard to believe that the Diamond Dave Era didn’t net then any time at the top of the Billboard Album Chart… Sammy’s configuration would do that for ’em…
And… on this anniversary, more of the stars are aligning that could indicate a Van Hagar reunion and tour!
Sammy and Eddie Van Halen are talking nice… Now we learn that Eddie’s son and bass player Wolfgang is working on a solo album and tour. That could [More]

With Brian Johnson’s doctor taking him off the Rock or Bust (an eardrum) Tour… There’s already speculation as to who might fill in as their promised “guest vocalist” when AC/DC re-schedules the remainder of their shows…
My first thought is Dave Grohl… but even Sammy Hagar would do an exceptional job…
Just for giggles… I say give the gig to Adele!

Singer, Songwriter, Guitarist, Collector of Fine Automobiles, Actor (Bones!), Producer, Entrepreneur, BFG-44 Hot Sauce Maker, Guitar Archivist, and a helluva nice guy!
I chatted with Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top about his debut solo album with The BFG’s… “Perfectamundo”! We also talked about the new ZZ Top Tour and their stop here at Lakewood for Gregg Allman’s Laid Back Fest!

By the sound of David Lee Roth’s new (sorta) Christmas song… Looks like he’s saying goodbye to Van Halen – permanently!
I thought their show at Music Midtown was awesome… DLR in fine form, and Eddie was flawless as usual, AND they seemed to really enjoy each other’s company again… But if this is it (sorry for the Huey Lewis line) coupled with the recent friendly tweets between The Red Rocker and Eddie Van Halen… Could a Van HAGAR tour be not too far off??
