I've always enjoyed the Foo Fighters, but over the past few years I've really started digging them. Something changed in the dynamic, and I can't really peg what - maybe it's just that we're all older now - but everything they've been doing just sounds right to me. Now we have a pairing of two bands that are not only loved by yours truly, but also by The Rock Daughters™. Check out this excellent BBC Radio 1 performance of the Foo Fighters covering the AC/DC classic, "Let There Be Rock."
Kid Rock keeps riding that line between Detroit rock and Nashville twang, and on his latest single he's leaning back to that country side. “Tennessee Mountain Top” hits country radio beginning October 2, but the song arrived on digital platforms for sale and streaming today. Check it out in the player below and see what you think - personally, I'm digging it.
I had a chance to catch POWERMAN 5000 live last year at a small club here in Illinois, and let me tell you - they put on just as electrifying a show now as they did nearly two decades ago as "When Worlds Collide" was blowing up the radio. The lineup has evolved, but the magic is still there, and on October 27 the band will unleash their latest album, NEW WAVE. This week brings us the first single and video from the new record, with "Sid Vicious in a Dress" streaming below. Beware there is some NSFW imagery there, particularly a moment with a baseball bat - something I tend to be familiar with. Crank it up!
I often cite that the first record I distinctly recall asking my parents to buy me was Michael Jackson's THRILLER. I still have my well-worn vinyl album from 1982, and while I've played Jackson's works for The Rock Daughters since birth, it's really been over the course of just the past few months that they've really started to enjoy them. Now, with the Halloween season soon to be here, Epic/Legacy Recordings in collaboration with The Estate of Michael Jackson, will release Michael Jackson SCREAM, a collection of hits inspired by Michael's love for season, available beginning September 29, 2017.
The ONE THOUSAND MILES TOUR featuring Hoobastank, OLDCODEX, Against The Current, [Nagoya, Osaka only], and coldrain [Tokyo only] kicks off later this month in Japan. Presented by H.I.P., tickets for all shows are on-sale now, with full details listed below. I will be in Japan representing The Rock Father™ Magazine and look forward to checking out the tour first hand.
Familiar? Haven't we done this before? We have, and the cycle will continue...
ABC just announced their cast for Season 25 of DANCING WITH THE STARS, and as usual, fans are taking to twitter to air their excitement or concern by tweeting @DWTS. Thing is, on twitter that means they're reaching the original DWTS... or at least a DWTS that staked (like a vampire) the acronym before "Dancing," and that's DEATH WALKS THE STREETS. If you haven't been playing along for the past 13 or so years, the #OriginalDWTS is a genre-bending transmedia property created by someone very familiar to readers of this site... yours truly. Curious?
