Some Metal and Rock ‘N Roll Thoughts – Saturday, May 24th, 2014
Hello my fellow Metal brethren and Rockaholics! It is Saturday morning on May 24th, 2014. In another month from now, the year will be nearly half over! Whoa! Today in Southwestern Ohio it is sunny with a most fantastic blue sky, along with a current temperature of 68°F. When it comes to weather, it just doesn’t get more comfortable than that! However, the humidity will settle in later today and I will surely sweat like a stranded hippo on a Florida highway, by late afternoon. Whoa.
I fell into a whiz-bang trade yesterday that landed me 6 cassettes from yesteryear. Man, we are talking about Death, Morbid Angel, Biohazard and GWAR, when it comes to these (kinda rare) cassettes! All 6 are in super-duper condition too! Yes, those classic cassettes of our Metal heroes are rising in value and becoming more collectable by the week!
The Death cassette I landed is the incredible 1993 release: Individual Thought Patterns. I’ll post a quick story about this trade, with an accompanying photo in the coming days. Whoa!
My 2000 Ford Taurus is currently sitting idle at my local mechanics shop. That sucks so badly. Apparently, it needs a sensor that triggers some gadget to tell the fuel pump what to do; or something like that. This stinking “sensor” is not available as an “after-market” product; thus the mechanic and I are waiting on the dumb-dumbs at some Ford auto parts warehouse to send the sensor we need asap. This sensor is on backorder; thus I don’t know when I’ll have my car back. Trust me, the car won’t go farther than 20 yards without this ridiculous and necessary part. In the meantime, my wife and I are sharing her car. Yay!!
Wouldn’t it be sweet if Adrian Vandenberg was to return to Whitesnake, replacing Doug Aldrich? Man, I wish Doug didn’t have to leave Whitesnake, cause he paired up with David Coverdale to write some amazingly memorable songs on their last 2 studio albums. Regardless, Doug Aldrich has a soaring music career happening and Burning Rain is a fine example of that notion.
That’s all I have to say, really. I could write another 5,000 words, however, would you really want to read it? I will be reviewing some killer Death Metal albums in the coming days, stay tuned my Deathaholics! Yes, I will review some new Hard Rock releases from 2014 as well. I have been listening to the music more than writing about it, lately! It’s all freaking good. Metal be thy name. – Stone
LONG LIVE METAL.
LONG LIVE ROCK AND ROLL.
