|Don Jamieson with a
very, very nice shirt.
I didn’t hate seeing Don Jamieson when he performed at the New Hope Cinema Grill last March. He was quite funny and his show was my first official review of any sort. Meeting him after the show was cool. He came off exactly as he seems on That Metal Show. Nice guy.

|Wes Scantlin Upright|
I didn’t hate seeing the Puddle Of Mudd singer barely make it through a set. My only complaint would be if you’re gonna be a train wreck, why not go all in? Despite his clear aversion to the gravity in the room, he and the band sounded alright. But if you aren’t gonna be at your best, is it too much to ask you be at your worst?
|Marq Torien. Bullet Boys at Pickle Park|
Surprisingly I didn’t hate the Bullet Boys when they came to Minnesota (another John Vrocker production) this summer. Much like Puddle Of Mudd, I went almost rooting for a train wreck but what I got was a kick ass rock show. The band has been lead singer Marq Torien and whoever he could convince to play for a six pack of beer for over a decade so I didn’t expect a real show. I was wrong. It’s amazing how much good music was packed in those first two albums and the band I saw delivered.

|Yours truly and Tommy from
Three Sides of the Coin
I didn’t hate Know Name Records doing a listening party for the red headed step child that is KISS Music from the Elder. Even if it was done to pay off a bet it was cool with the record on constant play, prizes drawn and a star studded affair which saw Tommy from Three Sides
of the Coinas well as Bakko from Jesus Chrysler (talk about an ego on that guy) in attendance. DannyBeck, the man responsible for the event, won’t admit it but deep down he has a deep affinity for this classic KISS album.
