Here is a Michael Schenker tune from 1984 called, “Capt. Nemo.” Michael is one of the great guitar shredders of the rock/metal era and still going strong today after 40 years in the business. The master of the Flying V! Happy Friday…Enjoy!
It’s almost 2013! This compels me to create a few lists from the year in review, my first as a blogger. My last post was my top 10 posts of the year according to WordPress stats. The 10 listed on this post are MY favorites…according to ME. There were many, but, these are the ones […]

Becoming a blogger this year has been a lot of fun. There were certainly some surprises for me along the way some include; -That just under 10,000 viewers would visit, read & reply to this blog. -How many cool people I have hooked up with to chat about music. -That no matter what your opinion….someone […]

It has been 30 years since Ozzy’s groundbreaking guitarist Randy Rhoads left us much too early in a tragic plane crash at age 25. Over those last 30 years nothing has diminished his musical legacy as he is still regarded as one of the best and most influential guitarists in rock/heavy metal of all time! Certainly on par with names like Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Eddie Van Halen and Michael Schenker.
A new 7 lb. full color photo biography has just been released on Randy and his place in music history. Looks like a great book and a must collector item. I cant wait to check it out.
Really bummed that I had to miss out on the festivities this evening. The Scorpions have proven to be one of the best live metal acts over the years and the addition of Tesla as opening act is a bonus. I was lucky enough to see the Scorps on their World Wide Live tour in […]
