We have all seen the commercials for Apple products showing how groundbreaking and “magical” they are. Well McDonald’s just knocked it of the park in parody land. I hope the “Straw” is real! – Fingers

One of my cherished metal memories is interviewing Lars Ulrich at the Nassau Coliseum when they opened for Qzzy’s “Ultimate Sin” tour. They were touring on “Master of Puppets” called the “Damage Inc.” tour. Lars was so young and excited and talkative, it was great. That’s where he recorded the famous Fingers Metal Shop ID that opens with “Hello this is Lars Ulrich of Metallica Ha!…” That was 1986. Fast forward to last night when they were on the Grammy’s with Lady Gaga, more seasoned a little gray and still on their game (except for the mic thing which I [More]

Dee Snider Stands Against Bullying

  • 3:10 pm Tuesday, February 7th, 2017 by fingers13

Dee does a lot of great community work outside his music career and this is something I back him on. After a young fan takes her life Dee takes to YouTube and Twitter to share his feelings and thoughts. No parent should have to bury their child but this situation just amplifies it’s pain and ugliness. Rest in Peace Paige – Fingers

Def Leppard’s Joe Elliot Chats with Fingers

  • 3:52 pm Friday, February 3rd, 2017 by fingers13

You gotta love Def Leppard! Through trial and tribulation they have consistently delivered. Even when they are not at 100% they are still having fun and giving us their all. Joe remarks how they laugh at each other when they screw up. There lies what I believe to be the key to their success. They take their job seriously and their integrity shows in their work however they realize the simple human element of it all and that at the end it’s all about a fun time for the fans as well as themselves. They are one of only 5 [More]

The bond between a parent and a child is strong. The joy of parenting is gratifying and challenging. But with work, compassion, love and patience wonderful  things can evolve. Watch this dad and his adorable 4 yr old sharing this Randy Newman classic. Enjoy! – Fingers

Iron Maiden Returns…Up The Irons!!

  • 3:55 pm Thursday, January 19th, 2017 by fingers13

I love Iron Maiden! Ever since I did one of my earliest events with the WBAB Rock-van at the, now long gone, Northstage Theater up in Glenn Cove if memory serves me I have loved them. Playing and listening to their music on Fingers Metal Shop plus getting to interview, hang and host their shows through the years has been nothing short of amazing. I am ecstatic to announce they are touring and coming to our area. Check out the complete tour press release below along with a couple of pictures from the past. – Fingers
