BREAKING NEWS: Steve Perry Will Join Journey at Rock Hall Ceremony Next Week!

  • 4:15 pm Friday, March 31st, 2017 by Donna Donna

Fans have been hoping and praying for a Steve Perry / Journey reunion for a LONG TIME and hoping against hope that the band’s long awaited induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame would be the impetus for one. Now in an interview with the Dayton Daily News, Journey keyboard player Jonathan Cain let slip that original lead singer Perry will indeed be on hand when Journey is finally inducted into the Rock Hall next Friday 4/7. Unfortunately it doesn’t sound like we’ll finally get them to perform together although the band has said he’d be welcome to.

My Unforgettable Encounter with Chuck Berry

  • 11:45 pm Saturday, March 18th, 2017 by Donna Donna

One of the highlights of my long career in radio was the night I got to host Chuck Berry at the Ritz in the 80’s.

I’m a HUGE Chuck Berry fan and the man is a LEGEND, not to mention one of the founding fathers of rock n roll. A friend who worked in a photo lab surprised me with a blow up of a classic black and white photo of Chuck doing the duck walk. So I brought the poster sized photo with me that night to the club with the intention of getting Chuck to sign it. When I [More]

The girl, Kelly’s daughter, comes up to her father’s desk to peer at the camera as Kelly attempts to push her away. Meanwhile, a child in a walker glides into the room.

The BBC interviewer gamely continues the interview.

“And what will it mean for the wider region?” the interviewer asks before addressing the obvious. “I think one of your children just walked in.”

“Pardon me,” Kelly answers as a woman, identified by The Guardian as Kelly’s wife, sweeps into the room.

WATCH Metallica and Iggy Pop Burn Down the Stooges Classic T.V. Eye

  • 5:06 pm Tuesday, March 7th, 2017 by Donna Donna

Iggy Pop opened all 3 shows Metallica performed in Mexico City last weekend and on the last night, the band invited Iggy on stage with them to perform the Stooges classic ‘T.V. Eye’ and the result is positively INCENDIARY! The bands’ regard for the Igster is plain to see.  And just for fun, below I’ve posted the dress rehearsal of Metallica’s collaboration with Lady Gaga from the Grammys. It’s too bad this wasn’t what was broadcast because it’s killer!
