Some Metal and Rock ‘N Roll Thoughts – Friday, April 4th, 2014

Kiss - Rolling Stone Magazine - promo cover pic

It took Rolling Stone 40 years to finally discover the greatness of KISS. That should be a ground-breaking embarrassment to this magazine. Hell, it only took a hiccup for Rolling Stone to know who Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was; he made the cover of Rolling Stone before KISS did. That’s pathetic. With an unsuccessful bid to glamorize Dzhokhar Tsarnaev behind them, Rolling Stone still goes about their way, as if they’re the authority on pop culture, politics and world affairs.

As a lifelong KISS fan, it’s bitter-sweet for me to see that they’re on the cover of Rolling Stone. I guess once you’re accepted into The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, Rolling Stone wants a piece of the popularity pie. If you minus the KISS cover and KISS feature story from this issue, the remaining magazine can be useful for cat litter box liner.

Damageplan - New Found Power - promo cover pic

When Pantera’s Vinnie Paul and Dimebag Darrell formed their supergroup Damageplan, the result was unfortunately 1 studio album: New Found Power. The late Dimebag Darrell is ultra-blazing on guitar, while Pat Lachman (vocals), Bob Zilla (bass) and of course, drummer Vinne Paul all lash out some of the most amazing Metal that was released in 2004.

I recently combed Amazon.com to see what New Found Power is selling for. Are y’all ready? Try: $42.72 (U.S.) as a new (unopened) CD. Yup. Guess what else? There were NO used copies of New Found Power for sale on Amazon.com. I consider myself lucky, for I bought this Damageplan CD (new) a few years ago, at f.y.e for about $18.00 (U.S.). In Metal conclusion, the physical CD of Damageplan New Found Power is out of print.

The Pretty Reckless - Going To Hell - promo cover - 2014

Apparently, if you have an enormous arrow, um, cross/devil tail on your back, which is pointing straight down to your fanny… then life must be very, very eventful for you. All kidding aside, I bought this sophomore CD, Going To Hell, by The Pretty Reckless due to its cover. Oops, I meant due to its Hard Rock. Besides, listening to this CD makes me feel like there truly is a young generation of Rockers that really do get it. Metal be thy name.

Pearl Jam - Ten - promo cover pic - large - #77409

Yay, it’s Friday! TGIF and have a drink on me! All the while, our world is going to hell in a fiery, out-of-control basket. Whatever y’all do, make certain to FILTER the news you read and watch. We are ALL receiving misinformation constantly from the 24/7 news networks, internet and print media. Need proof of this? Just tune into the coverage of the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. Sad.

Dewey defeats Truman - promo pic - history - #449

The talking mannequins on television only give a shit about RATINGS and how they look on camera; therefore, it’s the Dewey Defeats Truman philosophy of journalism that we must unfortunately live with, from yesterday and today’s news outlets.

______________________________

Now on to some better news… which is… music. Take a look below at the super-cool concert flyer for SKID ROW and BLACK STAR RIDERS! Whoa!! Two gigs coming-up, this May in California! Whoa!!

Skid Row - Black Star Riders - promo concert flyer - 2014 - California - #1007

As I do (loyally) utilize the vast social network known as Twitter, I found this exceptional quote, (below), from a historically legendary dude whose name is Alphonse De Lamartine. The NAMM Twitter account posted this quote and I snagged it for my post. Yup.

In the event you don’t know who this dude was, here’s a lightning-quick history lesson: Alphonse Marie Louis de Prat de Lamartine was a French writer, poet and politician. Alphonse was born on October 21, 1790, in Mâcon, France and died in Paris, France, back on February 28, 1869.

By now, y’all are wondering why Stone slapped the album cover for PEARL JAM Ten, on the top of this post. Answer: I bought the CD of Ten, yesterday at Best Buy for $3.99 (U.S.). Not a bad price for a tried and true Rock classic. I’ve forever owned Ten on cassette, thus an upgrade was essential. Pearl Jam’s Ten has grown on me over the years, that’s for certain. Metal be thy name.

Zero Tolerance - Glen Benton - promo cover pic -

Jiminy Metal Cricket! I haven’t written a Some Metal and Rock ‘N Roll Thoughts post, since March of 2013! As Frank Sinatra and David Lee Roth have sung… That’s LifeBy the way, That’s Life was written by Dean Kay and Kelly Gordon; while originally recorded by American born Jazz singer: Marion Montgomery. There’s some non-Metal trivia for y’all. Whoa.

The Zero Tolerance magazine cover (above) has DEICIDE’s (legendary) Glen Benton staring at not just me… he’s also staring at you! One look into those eyes of Glen Benton and all I see is… METAL. Okay, someone may see, (maybe) a tad of evil. Evil is Metal. Cool. However, the glaring eyes of Glen Benton can be open for interpretation and still one Metal fact remains: those eyes of Glen Benton have undoubtedly seen it all.

I bought this December/January issue of Zero Tolerance at my nearest Barnes & Noble store, yesterday. Yes, I’m psyched. I cannot give this magazine enough Metal praise. It’s released every two months and costs $9.99 (U.S.). This mag is a UK publication and also comes with a CD of 18 songs; real songs that y’all won’t hear on American Idol.

Ghostbusters- Bill Murray - Dan Aykroyd - Harold Ramis - prom pic -

L to R: Ghostbusters – Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis.

Yesterday, the sad news spread across the world that the legendary Harold Ramis, a comedy filmmaker, director, writer and actor passed away. Man, have I been a lifelong fan of Harold Ramis! I have thoroughly enjoyed, time and again, every movie that Harold Ramis touched! Beginning back to my middle school/high school years, the comedy films that Harold Ramis was responsible for included Animal House (1978), Caddyshack (1980), Stripes (1981), the Ghostbusters franchise, National Lampoon’s Vacation (1983), Groundhog Day from 1993 and many more. An American comedy film icon, Harold Ramis shall forever be. His ability to make me laugh will forever remain and that’s a Metal fact. May Harold Ramis rest in peace.

KISS - Frisbee Pic!

Above: That’s the KISS frisbee I own. Pretty cool, huh? I bought it at Dorney Park in Allentown, Pennsylvania. Yup.

Apparently, KISS will not play in any band lineup for The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction ceremony. It would have been extremely cool if every available member of KISS (past and present) could perform together onstage, for one kick-ass jam medley of KISS classics. A video backdrop showing the late Eric Carr and Mark St. John during this “fantasy” performance would have been an ultimate fan experience and profound moment in Rock history. Alas, what the hell do I know? Right?

Regardless, anyone who follows KISS on a daily basis, via their Facebook and website, will surely agree that Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley have NOT forgotten about their past. Their roots are what made them the icons they are today and both Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley have openly acknowledged (via their recent press release) they want to celebrate the history of KISS. Read it by clicking the link below:

Disc Exchange - large store logo - #3390 - 2013

I’d like to now give a HUGE Metal plug to my local indie CD/vinyl record shop: Disc Exchange. This (Dayton, Ohio) whiz-bang store covers it all, from music, movies and games to pop-culture collectibles too! True professionals (Mark and Kevin) you’ll find at Disc Exchange. Album collector’s will find LOTS of great vinyl, both new and used! Just take a look at their store logo above for more info!

As reported on the KISS Facebook page, on February 23rd, 2014:

ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME STATEMENT FROM KISS

To All Our Fans In Regards To The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame:

Out of respect, Ace and Peter’s recent statements demand a quick response to you, our fans.

Our intention was to celebrate the entire history of KISS and give credit to all members including present long time members Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer, and additionally Bruce Kulick and Eric Carr all who have made this band what it is, regardless of the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame’s point of view.

Although KISS has moved forward far longer without them, Ace and Peter are at the very foundation of what we have built and this would all be impossible had they not been a part of it in the beginning.

It is over 13 years since the original lineup has played together in make-up and we believe the memory of those times would not be enhanced. Contrary to claims made through the media we have never refused to play with Ace and Peter.

We have spent 40 years dedicated to building KISS without quitting or wavering as the band has moved forward with huge tours and platinum albums through different important lineups for forty years, to this day.

KISS has always been a band unlike any other. That is why we started KISS. That is why we continue KISS. Being unlike other bands also means making choices and decisions unlike other bands.

This is understandably an emotional situation where there is no way to please everyone.

To bring this to a quick end, we have decided not to play in any line-up and we will focus our attention on celebrating our induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.

We are excited and are looking forward to seeing you all on the KISS 40th Anniversary worldwide tour.

LA KISS – Sign NCAA Record-Setting And Former NFL QB Colt Brennan

Posted in classic rock, football, news, rock music news, sports, sports news, world news with tags , , , , , , , on November 1, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

LA - KISS - large logo - 2013

As Reported on the KISS Facebook:

Former NFL Quarterback and Heisman Trophy Finalist Brings Talent to Los Angeles as Newest Player Acquired by LA KISS

The LA KISS announced today they have signed prolific quarterback and Southern California native, Colt Brennan. A former 2007 Heisman Trophy finalist with the University of Hawaii, Brennan holds the NCAA record for most touchdown passes in a single season (58) and will utilize his National Football League (NFL) experience with the Washington Redskins and Oakland Raiders to add veteran leadership and electrifying play to the newest expansion team in the Arena Football League (AFL).

“We’re thrilled to bring such a dynamic and successful Quarterback to our team and to our fans,” stated Schuyler Hoversten, President of LA KISS. “Having a local success story in a key position is great for our fans and I know they’ll enjoy watching him play this season at Honda Center.”

Colt Brennan - promo NCAA - Hawaii - pic - #1

Brennan (6’3” – 215 lbs) began his career playing high school football for Orange County powerhouse, Mater Dei High School, before playing at the collegiate level for the University of Hawaii. At Hawaii Brennan achieved national recognition while leading his team to a 12-0 record and 2007 Sugar Bowl appearance on the back of his record-setting season. He finished the year with an NCAA Division I record 58 touchdown passes and 70.4 pass completion percentage (along with 29 other Division I records) finishing third in the Heisman vote. He was also named the WAC Offensive Player of the Year and awarded First-Team All-WAC honors (for the second straight season).

He was selected in the sixth round of the 2008 NFL Draft by the Washington Redskins and went on to lead the league in touchdown passes during the preseason. Over the next few years, Brennan spent time with the Redskins and Oakland Raiders before taking time off to rehab his injuries. He now joins the LA KISS as he hopes to rejuvenate his career and bring an unheralded level of excitement to the AFL and its fans.

“It’s not often you get to add a player with Brennan’s impressive combination of elite skill and veteran maturity, and we are excited to see the new dynamic he brings to the team,” says Bob McMillen, Head Coach for LA KISS. “Whether it’s through his play on the field or his leadership in the locker room, we know he will make a positive impact from day one.”

Brennan’s electric style of play, which enabled him to achieve such record-breaking levels of success throughout his career, will be the perfect fit for LA KISS and the AFL. With his addition to the team, fans can expect to witness the most thrilling form of sports entertainment around.

“I’m excited about the opportunity to get back on the field and play football for the LA Kiss,” Brennan said. “I’m looking forward to coming home and playing in front of my family and friends.”

2013 Coach of the Year to become team’s first head coach

McMillen to Bring His Football Expertise and AFL Knowledge to Los Angeles

_________________________________________

LOS ANGELES, CA – LA KISS Co-Owners Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, Doc McGhee and Brett Bouchy have announced the inaugural Head Coach of the team as AFL veteran, Bob McMillen.

Before joining LA KISS as their new head coach, McMillen had a lengthy playing career in the AFL and retired in 2007 as the league’s second all-time leading rusher for both career yards and rushing attempts. After retiring as a player, McMillen was hired by the Chicago Rush and served as Head Coach for the team for three years. In 2013 McMillen was also elected into the AFL Hall of Fame for his services to the game.

Brett Bouchy, co-owner of LA KISS said “During our search for the first-ever head coach of LA KISS, we knew we had to get a coach with relevant AFL playing and coaching experience – someone well respected around the league and beyond”

In 2013, McMillen received Head Coach of the Year honors from the Arena Football League and was elected into the Arena Football Hall of Fame.

“I’m beyond excited to be given the honor of being named the first head coach of LA KISS,” stated Bob McMillen, head coach of LA KISS. “I’m very much looking forward to putting in the hard work with our team and owners, and in the end producing a top tier product both on and off the field.”

McMillen will be tasked with leading the charge for LA KISS on the field in their inaugural season, and expectations will be high with the new AFL franchise. LA KISS ownership is confident in his ability to lead the team and field an excellent team that will be expected to make an immediate impact.

Gene Simmons of KISS said, ‘‘We’re proud to announce Bob McMillen as head coach of our LA KISS AFL team. Bob shares our passion for bringing real, in-your-face football to the fans and he has a take no prisoner’s attitude which is the LA KISS philosophy. Go big, or go home’’

Paul Stanley of Kiss added ‘’Bob McMillen is another step in deepening our line in the sand. From the ground up we are building a team that will accept nothing less than victory. We will win’’

The AFL (www.arenafootball.com), which is dedicated to playing and promoting in-arena professional football around the world, will mark its 27th season in 2014, as well as the inaugural season for LA KISS.
