Devin Townsend reveals the crappy thing about touring on a bus
December 9th, 2019 under Music. [ Comments: none ]


When you think of rock stars touring the country on a bus, you think they are living a glamorous life. Turns out, it is actually really sh!tty.

Devin Townsend revealed a secret about bus touring life. The Canadian singer wrote, “You can’t sh!t in a tour bus toilet. No solids. If it’s an emergency, you need to do it in a garbage bag and then throw it away outside. This situation is known as ‘hot bagging’ and is among the least glamorous aspects of touring.” File this under, The More You Know…and wish you didn’t.

BTW Am I the only person who wonders if groupies follow the bus, sneak into the garbage can and take the “hot bag” home with them. This way they can, literally say they have a piece of their favrotie musician.

Huey Lewis and the News have some news
September 27th, 2019 under Music. [ Comments: none ]


Last year, Huey Lewis announced that he had to cancel his tour because he was suffering from Ménière’s disease and he was suffering from hearing loss. Since then, we have not gotten much of an update about his condition.

It seemed like it was the end of the road for the band. Yet, you know what they say, “The heart of rock’n’roll keeps beating.

Nearly 18 months later, we are getting an update from the band. Huey Lewis and the News released their first single in over a decade called Her Love Is Killing Me. Not only that, next year they are releasing their first album since 2001. Their collection of original music was self-produced and self-recorded at their own studio.

When it comes to the single, it sounds like something you would hear on their album Sports. A record that does not necessarily get the respects it deserves. If the rest of their new tunes sound like this one, I cannot wait to hear every track from it.

Robyn’s fans were not Dancing On My Own after her NYC concert
March 11th, 2019 under Music. [ Comments: none ]


How many times after you go to a concert, you still have songs from the show stuck in your head. All you want to do is sing that song out loud, but you cannot because you are too busy looking for your car. Therefore, you are find yourself belting out it in your car, with your friends, while you are stuck in endless traffic trying to get out of that place.

Anyways, while that is us, that was not Robyn’s fans on Friday after her gig at Madison Square Garden. After the concert was over, several of them headed to Penn Station and waited for their train to get home. Since they all had her tune Dancing On My Own stuck in their head, they decided to have an impromptu sing-a-long. Making an awesome concert experience even more spectacular.

How did Robyn feel about it? She said, “Feeling the love NYC 💓” Who wouldn’t after that?

Well, maybe Hall & Oates after I saw them perform at Chastain Park. That is because the duo did not sing Private Eyes at their show. Therefore, as we were walking down the hill to our cars, we all broke out to into the single. Which was totally epic and one of my absolute favorite musical experiences of my lifetime. BTW I am still pissed, to this day, that they did not do it. Don’t you hate when bands don’t play their biggest hits?

At least Robyn did not disappoint. To see her sing that number at MSG that night, then click here!

Which band has the dirtiest laundry?
January 24th, 2019 under Music. [ Comments: none ]


While most people’s job on a musician’s tour is to air out the band’s dirty laundry, it is Hans-Jürgen Topf’s job to actually clean them.

He told The New York Times that back in 1982, he saw that Ted Nugent’s bus was lost so he offered to give them directions. In return, they gave him free tickets to the show. Thus, he asked them if they wanted him to do their laundry and the rest is rock’n’roll history.

He has washed the costumes of everyone from U2 to Madonna to Janet Jackson to Elton John. Has he had any mishaps? Joe Cocker was mad when a line showed up in his pants. He accidentally shrank a pair of David Hasselhoff’s pants, and we know there is no room for shrinkage.

While most rockers’ attires are covered with sweat and aluminum dust, some are little dirtier than others. Who had the dirtiest clothes of them all? That honor goes to…Slipknot. He said, “were coveralls worn by the metal band Slipknot that had been sprayed with beer, cream and fake blood, and left in garbage bags for three days.” I don’t even want to know what it smelled like when he opened the bag. Probably as bad someone who goes to a 3-day festival and never changes their clothes.

The dirty world of rock’n’roll is a little cleaner thanks to Hans-Jürgen Topf.

Try not get this Catchy Song stuck in your brain
January 18th, 2019 under Music. [ Comments: none ]


I would like to declare I am going to boycott The Lego Movie 2 when it comes out on February 8th because of the theme song from the movie. I thought it was bad having Everything is Awesome stuck in my head for weeks, but they came up with a tune that is even more of an earworm. So much so, they could not even hide the fact, thus they called it Catchy Song. That is exactly what the Dillon Francis feat. T-Pain and That Girl Lay Lay track is to our grey matter.

Since I do not believe in suffering alone, I am sharing thius melody with you. I challenge you to not get Catchy Head stuck in your brain. Impossible, no?
