Midnight Music Post – 10/23/14

I stumbled across these very talented young ladies on Facebook. They don’t have an official website, but they do have a Youtube channel. The little lady on Bass Guitar is Alejandra, and she is 9 years old. The 12 year old drummer is Paulina and she also shares the lead vocal duties. And last but not least, on lead vocals and Guitar, is Daniela who is 14 years old. These girls have the technical aspects down of playing. They’re pretty tight and I’m thinking they just need that all important “experience.” It will be interesting to see how they’ve progressed […]

Hey ISIS, I’m an American with a Remington

Hat/Tip to Larry Gatlin and Fox News. Conservative Hideout 2.0 brought you the YouTube video of Billy Dean and Larry Gatlin’s response to ISIS, entitled “An American With A Remington.” That video went viral, garnering over 15 million hits in only a handful of days. Yesterday they were on Fox and Friends to sing their song. Here is Larry Gatlin’s open letter to the fans, along with their performance at the bottom of the article: Dear Fox Fans and world at large, When I do master classes in songwriting, I open the class by saying, “It was either Plato, or […]

Gene Simmons Announces the Death of Rock and Roll

Gene Simmons, never to be silent on an issue upon which he strongly feels, provided the mother of all death announcements.  He declared Rock and Roll to be dead.  Here is more from Esquire, via LoudWire… Gene Simmons is making headlines again, this time for burying rock ‘n’ roll. The outspoken artist says “Rock is finally dead,” in an interview conducted by his son Nick for Esquire magazine. The Kiss singer-bassist also shares his thoughts on the failing record business and how he would not want to be an up-and-coming artist today. “The death of rock was not a natural death,” […]

Some Def Leppard

I’ve been revisiting some of my old favorite bands lately. Here is some Def Def Leppard…

The Star Spangled Banner Rocks! Must See Video

Madison Rising is one of those bands that you just can’t say enough about. They are consummate musicians and they love this country. You don’t have to be a Veteran to appreciate them, you just have to understand that they not only love America, but they love and cherish the ideals it was founded upon. Take a few minutes and watch the video below. It is their interpretation of the Star Spangled Banner, and it ROCKS. I’d like to personally dedicate this version to President Obama who said our National Anthem was too ‘war like.’ What do you say to […]

On tonight’s roster of rock and roll, it’s one of the best bands to come from the Midwest during the ’70s, REO Speedwagon. Three bands were the undisputed arena rock kings of the early ’80s — Styx, Journey, and REO Speedwagon — yet all weren’t overnight success stories (in fact, each group began pursuing different musical styles originally — prog rock, fusion, and straight-ahead hard rock, respectively, before transforming slowly into chart-topping mainstream rockers). REO Speedwagon first formed in 1968, via a pair of University of Illinois students, keyboardist Neal Doughty and drummer Alan Gratzer. After graduation, the group signed […]

Okay, we’re taking a break from all the comedy songs that have been featured as of late and I thought we’d look at one of the best hard rock/glam rock/arena rock bands ever, and that is Queen. The epitome of pomp-rock in the Seventies and Eighties, Queen rocked radio and sports stadiums alike with booming, highly produced anthems like “We Are the Champions” and “We Will Rock You.” Onstage, the English quartet used elaborate sets smoke bombs, and flashpots — none of which were quite as captivating as the band’s lead singer, Freddie Mercury, whose preening and over-the-top vocals helped […]

Steve Cropper has led a long and prosperous music career. He of course, is best known as the guitarist in Booker T and the MG’s and also in the Blues Brother Band. He was in both Blues Brothers movies and he went on tour with them as well. But what a lot of folks don’t know is that he is a pretty darned good song writer and worked extensively as a producer as well. Steve Cropper made his musical debut on American Bandstand in 1961. Thus the legend began. Just one year later, along with Booker T & the MG’s, […]

Since 1961 Bob Seger has been delivering good old American Rock N Roll. Here are some of his hits and a newer one called Wreck This Heart. Many thanks to the BobSegerChannel on YouTube. If you’re wondering why some of his bigger hits aren’t on here, you can thank EMI for that. They’ve evidently been a bit pissy about allowing his fans to see videos of his songs on the internet.  

Memorial Day Midnight Music Post – 5/26/14

A few videos to honor all of our heroes, and give remembrance to those who paid the ultimate sacrifice.                

Midnight Music Post – 5/25/14

School of Rock is one of those movies that you just HAVE to see. At least that’s what I thought when first seeing the trailers for it over 10 years ago. I’ve always liked classic rock and this movie comes together in a way that pays tribute to arena rock and classic rock of yesteryear. We’ve seen some of the cast members grow up on screen before us and some have never appeared on the screen again. None-the-less it was a great movie and I think what made it work, besides Jack Black’s over the top energy, was that the […]

Well look and sound-alikes abound in the music biz. Looks like Sammy Hagar is having some troubles in this area: Sammy Hagar is warning fans in California not to be taken in by a ‘lookalike’ who is posing as the star to attract women and blag various freebies. The Chickenfoot and former Van Halen and Montrose frontman – known as The Red Rocker – posted a message on his website asking fans to look out for the fraud and adds that he has been in touch with local police. Some Hagar fans are known for trying to mimic his look, […]
