Chicago Rock – Ep297

Chicago Rock – Ep297

DBG VIP and past guest Joe Becht joins the guys this week for a talk about Chicago Rock. The Windy City may be steeped in jazz and blues history but it would be foolish to sleep on its contributions to the history of rock music. In this long-form music and discussion episode, Joe shares his memories of growing up in Chicago, his experiences at different city venues and how a number of great rock acts…

FOO FIGHTERS – Concrete and Gold (Album Review)

FOO FIGHTERS – Concrete and Gold (Album Review)

Foo Fighters were supposed to be on a long break. That’s what they said as they released the Saint Cecilia EP to thank their fans. Well, it didn’t take too long before Dave Grohl got the itch to start working again. Seemingly out of nowhere, they released the single for “Run.” That was our first taste of Concrete and Gold. On the morning it came out, I made a pit stop on my way to…

Gene Simmons and Ace Frehley To Reunite For Charity

Gene Simmons and Ace Frehley To Reunite For Charity

In news that I suspect ruined Paul Stanley’s breakfast. The KISS Army stood erect a few weeks back when it was announced that Gene and Ace had actually hung out and written a couple songs together.  The level of “Is Ace coming back to KISS?” rhetoric will be even higher after it was announced today that Gene Simmons will indeed be joined by Ace Frehley at The Children Matter charity concert in St. Paul, MN on September 20th.  Also…

CHEAP TRICK – We’re All Alright! (Album Review)

CHEAP TRICK – We’re All Alright! (Album Review)

Not many bands make it to 18 albums. It takes a combination of longevity and releasing albums consistently. Bands that have made this pinnacle include the Rolling Stones, KISS, Black Sabbath and Scorpions. But, many of your favorite bands haven’t reached it (and probably won’t) like Aerosmith, AC/DC and ZZ Top. Well, you can now add Cheap Trick to the 18-timers club with their latest CD, We’re All Alright! If you’re going to name your…

Radio Sucks Radio Show v28 – Ep273

DBG VIP Joe Becht joins the guys this week for Radio Sucks Radio Show v28. In this two-hour music and discussion episode, Joe spins killer tracks from artists and albums that he think weren’t given a fair shake by the mainstream radio community. However, in this long-form episode you’ll get great songs from Skid Row, Wendy O. Williams, Plasmatics, King’s X, Angel, Trouble, Rush, Love/Hate, Cheap Trick, and The Cult. It’s a fun ride with…

Cheap Trick in Plymouth MN? (Concert Review)

Cheap Trick in Plymouth MN? (Concert Review)

It should come as no surprise in my line of work that I attend a lot of shows. Covering mainly the Twin Cities metro area it’s not often a band comes to town to play at a venue I’ve never heard of.  Particularly when it’s a band of Cheap Trick‘s ilk.  So when it was announced they would be bringing their brand of rock to the Hilde Performance Center in Plymouth, MN., I would shortly…

Destination Nineteen Eighty-something! Time Capsule – Lita Ford

Lita, fire up the Delorean, destination nineteen eighty-something! The story behind Lita Ford‘s new album Time Capsule is almost as captivating as any Back to the Future movie, but we will get to that in a moment. First, let me start with my personal history and one Lita Ford. No, I have never had the pleasure of meeting her or for that matter, I have never even caught her live which is tragic considering how…
