KIX - Rock Your Face Off - promo cover pic - 2014

It is Sunday, July 27th, 2014 and after 11:00 pm EST as I write this post. Other than wishing the team members on the Animal Planet reality series Finding Bigfoot would at last find this damn creature, wishing for world peace is probably just as moot. What isn’t uncertain are two forthcoming Hard Rock albums that I’m gonna scrape up some spare change to purchase: KIX – Rock Your Face Off and SKID ROW – Rise Of The Damnation Army/United World Rebellion Chapter Two.

Rock ‘N Roll was, is and will forever be a perfect antidote for dispelling the crappy feelings I get when reading the world AND local news! Metal be thy name, isn’t it true for you!? I truly feel it is GRAND that SKID ROW and KIX are both releasing new studio material on the same day in the USA: August 5th! This will be the second in a series of EP studio releases from SKID ROW, with KIX releasing their first studio album since 1995’s Show Business. However, KIX has been a staple and favorite on the live Hard Rock scene for many a year; their 2012 Live In Baltimore release via Frontiers Records is proof positive of this!

Both bands are legendary for sure. I am just psyched-out that SKID ROW and KIX exist in 2014, while giving their fans and the Hard Rock scene something to really look forward to once again. SKID ROW. KIX. Real Deal Hard Rock. Metal be thy name. – Stone.

Some Metal and Rock ‘N Roll Thoughts – Friday, March 21st, 2014

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.

Just in case you’ve just woken up from sleeping through these past several days, KISS and Def Leppard will be touring together this Summer.

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.

Led by founding members Rachel Bolan, Snake Sabo and Scotti Hill, along with powerhouse vocalist and 14 year veteran of the band Johnny Solinger and new drummer Rob Hammersmith, SKID ROW will deliver the best from their catalogue of gold and platinum albums and anthemic singles like “Youth Gone Wild”, “Monkey Business”, “I Remember You”, “18 & Life” and many more. They will also showcase tracks from their new mini-album United World Rebellion Chapter 1 which features songs such as “Kings Of Demolition” and “ This Is Killing Me”, tracks which easily stand up along with the band’s classics.

After a run of hugely successful festival dates in Summer 2012, UGLY KID JOE’s Whit, Klaus and Cordell, along with Snot / Sevendust guitarist Sonny Mayo and Zac Morris are back for their first full European tour. In Summer 2013, they will release Stairway To Hell, their first new music since 1996. The album features six brand new songs along with three acoustic versions of songs from their past. Tracks like “Everything About You”, “Cats In The Cradle”, “Neighbor” and “Milkman’s Son” continue to receive airplay around the world, while new singles “Devil’s Paradise” and “I’m Alright” show where the band are headed. UKJ’s Whit promises “it will be RAD!”.

The tour promises a great night of rock that you can sing along to from beginning to end.
