Matt Sorum Bringing Chaos to LI

  • 7:05 pm Friday, December 9th, 2016 by fingers13

Matt Sorum has sat behind the kit for many great bands, tours and records. Wait did I just say records? lol Replacing GnR drummer Steven Adler for the “Use Your Illusion 1 & 2” and the “Spaghetti Incident?” was a great jump in his career. He went from The Cult to GnR to Velvet Revolver, Slash’s Snakepit, solo work and other projects that have culminated into his newest project. The super-group Kings of Chaos with a who’s who of players. December 18th they hit the Paramount in Huntington. Listen in as we chat about.. well just about everything!

Growing up in the Massapequa area there were certain things you knew. All American had the best burgers and fries, Heckles & Jeckles and Author’s rocked, John J Burns park and the Stray Cats. Drummer Slim Jim Phantom  stopped by the station and chatted with me about his new book “A Stray Cat Struts” – “My Life as a Rockabilly Rebel” Watch as we share about the old days and see him jam with Joe Rock and the All-stars featuring Lou Carrillo and Mark Mendoza.

Who Knew!?

We’ve all been subject to the Rick Astley pranks on the internet. I thought for sure this was the same and then it turned out to be real. From his show last year in Hollywood.

Rick performs a surprise encore of AC/DC’s Highway to Hell at his amazing showcase gig at The Troubadour in West Hollywood. August 11, 2016

Dweezil Zappa Hits the Beacon Sunday

  • 5:56 pm Thursday, October 27th, 2016 by fingers13

Dweezil has been an amazing force in keeping daddy Frank’s music alive and more importantly exposing it to new generations of fans. I love Zappa’s music and the way Dweezil has worked so hard to make this show really emulate Franks musical history. Sadly he is being wrangled around legally over the use of the name. The worst part is it’s his family that doing the wrangling. Listen in to get some perspective and education on one of the most underrated and underappreciated artists in music. Long Live Frank Zappa!

Over their career Queen put out a ton of music. They also held on to a lot. They were always experimenting and evolving so it’s no surprise some of the stuff that gets dug up is pure gold. Like This! – Fingers

This will be awesome! #TheRollingStones

Judging from early reports this should prove to be a must for every Stones fan. I love the second video where the guys chat about it. I for one can’t wait – Fingers
