Motorhead - The Birthday Party - album promo cover pic!

Stone’s METAL Birthday – Today is Saturday, January 26th and it’s… my birthday! Happy METAL Birthday to me! WHOA!

I won’t actually reveal how old I am. However, here are some hints:

I’m younger than Gene Simmons.

I’m older than Chris Daughtry.

By the way, doesn’t that Motörhead birthday cake (pictured at top) look really… METAL or what! That’s the album cover for Motörhead The Birthday Party. It’s a live Motörhead album released back in 1990.

I’ll be celebrating my METAL Birthday by listening to METAL and preparing for my relocation to Ohio (aka The Buckeye State). No crazy or huge party for Stone. Maybe next year, when things aren’t so unbelievably busy in my life.

Back on April 13, 2010, I posted up a very, very cool article/review (which I wrote) about Motörhead The Birthday Party. You can read all about it, if you like, by clicking on the link below! Whoa!

MOTORHEAD – “THE BIRTHDAY PARTY” ALBUM FROM 1990 THAT’S LIVE AND OUT OF PRINT!

EDDIE VAN HALEN – Back on January 26, 1955, one of the greatest guitar players that has ever roamed the Rock and Heavy Music landscape was born. This icon of Rock is also a multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and producer as well. Incredibly documented and noted for his superior guitar wizardry, that in turn has made him become a most influential musician spanning Rock ‘N’ Roll generations is – Eddie Van Halen. Happy Metal Birthday Eddie! The legendary founding member and lead guitarist for Van Halen turns a young 56 today! Whoa… YEAH!

(VAN HALEN I – 1978/Warner Bros. Records)

Van Halen I and Van Halen II are both albums that made my eyeballs widen and my jaw drop to the ground when I was just a young lad. All I can remember was thinking to myself… what is this? This music, this Heavy sound, THAT guitar! I would confidently venture to guess, that I’m not alone in that Rock ‘N’ Roll memory. This was 1978 and 1979 when these first two Van Halen albums were released respectively. Van Halen’s wide-open Hard Rock meets Heavy Metal sound and vibe created some excitement, that was and still is damn amazing to my ears to this very day!

CRANK UP SOME VAN HALEN TODAY AND YELL F’N YEAH!

Guess what? Guess who else shares their birthday with Eddie Van Halen on this 26th day of January? Need some hints? He’s a Metalhead lifer. The dude writing this. Stone. That’s me! YEAH! Happy Metal Birthday to me! I turn a very young 18 today! Um, alright… maybe I’m not 18 after all. Just add “27” to “18” and you win the Metal prize… which is the answer to my real age! The older I get, the more Rock ‘N’ Roll I need… and Metal is my all natural elixir.

(VAN HALEN II – 1979/Warner Bros. Records)

LONG LIVE EDDIE VAN HALEN.

LONG LIVE VAN HALEN.

LONG LIVE STONE.

Stone.
