Rockin’ With Dokken!

As some many have noted, I’m on an 80’s kick as of late.  And in the 80’s, I was a Dokken fan.  I missed the gym this evening, but I’m still in 80’s mode.  So, here are some tunes from Dokken… Enjoy this slice of the 80’s, with Dokken!

Journey: Anyway You Want it

Something has me nostalgic as of late, so here is a classic from Journey… We’ll see how long this classic rock kick lasts.

Via Kim Komando: Five Things You Never Knew Your Smartphone Can Do

I saw this on Facebook earlier in the week, and thought it was interesting.  It’s not political, so feel free to watch no matter your political persuasion… I’m going to get some of those apps, pretty sweet! Should mention that Kim Komando is rather informative, and I’ve listened to her radio show on and off for years.  Click her name for her site.

Musical Interlude: Def Leppard Edition

For this week’s musical interlude, I thought I’d pick a classic 80’s band that is active to this day-Def Leppard.  Here are some excerpts from their website, and select videos… 1977 In November, the first Def Leppard rehearsal takes place in a spoon factory near Bramall Lane, Sheffield (UK). Lead singer Joe Elliot, bass player Rick “Sav” Savage, guitarist Pete Willis, and drummer Tony Kenning just renamed the band from Deaf Leopard (a name first coined by Joe Elliott at school in 1975) to Def Leppard. At Christmas, the band perform their first gig for six friends. Six songs are […]

Saturday Musical Interlude: Journey Edition

For this Saturday, I thought some Journey might be good.  Enjoy! From their official website… The release of Eclipse marks the latest chapter in a rock ‘n’ roll saga that started more than 35 years ago in the San Francisco Bay Area. Guitarist Neal Schon left home at 15 years old to join Santana. In early 1973, Walter “Herbie” Herbert-a guitar tech and later manager for Santana and Journey-floated the idea about forming a new band around Schon, whom he called “the quintessential guitar expressionist of the time.” Joining with two members of the popular local act Frumious Bandersnatch-former Steve Miller Band […]

OK How Many Metal Fans do we Have Here?

One thing that has jumped out at me over the last two and a half years is how many Metal fans are in the CH 2.0 readership.  If we are to trust the CBS poll that said that the average Tea Party member is in their early 40’s, we can say that many of us were in school when Metal was in it’s heyday.  Also, I have to consider that my Link posts with Metal videos tend to get more comments than others.  So, let’s do a simple poll to see how many of us were sporting long hair and dressing in […]

Sunday Links: Cars and Music with a 50's Focus Edition

As I look back at the links posts, I realize that I’ve been doing them for about a year now.  I’ve themed them most of the time, and covered everything from cartoons to holiday themes.  I have to be honest, I had no idea what the theme would be for today.  Then, I thought of what’s been covered.  The two most typical themes are cars an music.  At that point, it hit me, why not combine both?  So, for today’s theme, I bring you cars and music.  The era is the 50’s. Enjoy the links, cars, and music. Thanks, Rush! […]

Sunday Linkage: Special Hair Band Edition

As usual, I was up late last night.  I was clicking through the stations, when I saw Metal Madness in VH1 Classic.  Needless to say, I was inspired.  So, enjoy the links, and the tunes. Maggie’s Notebook has a post on the NHS failing, and how Berwick and Obama wish to replicate it here. Totus has a post about how the folks are souring on Obama’s “change.” Motor City Times presents a cultural piece, Jane Austin’s Fight Club. A Lonely Conservative had the latest on the missing US Servicemen. Doug at the Daley Gator has realized that we must all […]

God & Guns

Since I began contributing to Conservative Hideout 2.0 many of you have gotten to know me as a staunch Conservative, unabashed and unafraid of that label. But there is another side to me that may surprise some of you. I spent the better part of two decades traveling this great nation of ours as the road manager of a rock band that I would bet none of you have heard of. But in that capacity, I made acquaintances with many names you might in fact know. I also worked for some of those bigger names. My band toured with Head […]
