Are You Serious Sixx?

Are You Serious Sixx?

Disgusted! Disgusted, disappointed, confused, sad and pissed off! That is how I felt after reading the latest interview with Nikki Sixx in the latest issue of Sweden Rock Magazine. I was dumbfounded, what? Seriously? The letters “WTF?” were created for this exact moment. I have been a loud and proud CRUEHEAD since the moment I was introduced to the band back in 1983. My first ever concert ever was MotleyCrue/Accept on June 10th of 1984…

“Meh,” No Steven, No Izzy, No Reunion! – Wally’s Rant

“Meh,” No Steven, No Izzy, No Reunion! – Wally’s Rant

So 2016 is a few heartbeats away and it appears that this year will bring about one of the most anticipated “rock reunions” of all time. All together now, Guns n Roses!, Guns n Roses!” Ok, I admit that does feel pretty damn good. Guns n Roses largely contributed to the soundtrack of my youth. I was there from the very beginning. Well ok, maybe not the sunset strip “pre-record deal” beginning but I eagerly…

"GET UP"! Vote For KISS…

When I woke up this morning I said to myself, “Self what a great day to vote KISS for induction into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame”. So I did, and you should too…here’s why. For years I have watched the “Rock n Roll Hall of Shame” continue to ignore the most recognizable band in the world. A band that has endured, evolved and continued to remain viable for a mere 40 years. A…

Sampling or Stealing? Either Way Makes Me Nauseous

A couple things happened recently that prompted or inspired me to write this down. As a lifelong, sometimes obsessed, passionate music fan, I enjoy many different styles and genres of music but my true love has always been in the hard rock/heavy metal vein. A true “Decibel Geek” you might say. Anyways, a couple weeks back I stumbled across this headline http://ultimateclassicrock.com/billy-squier-eminem-berzerk/ about Eminem’s new single sampling Billy Squire’s “The Stroke”.
