Guns ‘N’ Roses Rock Madison Square Garden

  • 4:40 pm Thursday, October 12th, 2017 by fingers13

Last night Guns N’ Roses hit the Garden for the first of 3 shows. I was invited to the show by Live Nation for the show and some VIP treatment. Honestly I had no intention of going to this show because A) I saw them at Sundance before they broke and they were amazing and pure dangerous rock and roll. B) Like many of us I sat hours at shows waiting for the boys to show up. C) After waiting forever for Chinese Democracy… Well I was less than impressed. However after receiving a free invite and my girlfriend wanting [More]

Back in June of 2015 while the Foo Fighters were playing a stadium in Sweden front-man Dave Grohl fell off the stage and broke his leg.

Watch Dave share the story on a Swedish TV show and the check out the next video to see his return to the stage. Awesome story [More]

UPDATE: Chilling 911 Call by Tom Petty’s Wife

  • 3:01 pm Tuesday, October 3rd, 2017 by fingers13

UPDATE: I took down the call. I apologize for the insensitivity. I meant no harm. I truly thought it may shed some light on situations like this and that it might help. IF someone wants to hear the call it’s all over the web but you will not find it on our site anymore. If you know me you know I don’t have an evil bone in my body. I always try to find things related to music or feel good stories. That does not exclude me from being stupid and human. I did not post this for clicks (I [More]

Watch Ritchie Blackmore teach Hugh Hefner how to finger!

Question to DP fans “What song is the band playing in the clip (1st video) while Hef make  his way to the band?” 

When I was a young lad growing up I treasured my tiny transistor radio. Truly it was only a tad bigger than a pack of cigarettes. But I loved plugging in my earbud and listening to all kinds of music. It was during the late 60’s where I believe I was first infected with harder music. Specifically Deep Purple’s remake of the Joe South’s “Hush” and Neil Diamond’s “Kentucky Woman”. I still love both of those songs however [More]

Tesla’s music is often referred to as heavy metal, but is better described as blues metal. The band’s lyrics also strayed from the themes popular in heavy metal, particularly in the 1980s at the beginning of their career. A further distinction from their contemporaries was their T-shirt-and-jeans image which was in strong contrast to Glam Metal bands of the time, which were characterized by big [More]
