5 Things to know about Steve Perry:

The only critics Steve Perry cares about are the fans.

He measures success by the number of encores the audience demands.

In the years after he left Journey he gained 50 – 60 pounds, got a butch haircut and rode around aimlessly on his motorcycle.

He says  “You want to know what I did after I left the band? I visited my mom’s grave a lot.”

The first time Perry saw Kellie Nash, the love of his life, was in a film about breast cancer patients that was being edited by a Hollywood friend of his.

WATCH: Happy One Hit Wonder Day! Here Are 20 OHWs From the 80’s

  • 12:18 pm Tuesday, September 25th, 2018 by Donna Donna

Okay here’s a pretty good definition of One-Hit-Wonders: Artists that had only one hit single or one signature song that overshadows their other work, and made them famous. Many of these artists have more great songs but are principally known in pop culture because of one particular tune. So what’s on your one hit wonder playlist?

If you’ve got time on your hands check out the playlist below of  One Hit Wonders from the 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s

WATCH: Ninja Sex Party Turn ‘Pour Some Sugar on Me’ Into Candy Land!

  • 11:10 am Friday, September 21st, 2018 by Donna Donna

One of the kids on the WBAB street team tuned me on to this band Ninja Sex Party (often shortened to the acronym NSP), and I kinda fell in love with their version of Def Leppard’s ‘Pour Some Sugar on Me’! Check it out in the video above.

Wikipedia describes the band as an “American musical comedy duo” but the group did record two non-comedic albums of covers of songs from the 70s and 80s.

Guitarist Dickey Betts retired from performing in 2014, but 4 and a half years later the Allman Brothers co-founder got bored and returned to the stage. Betts thrilled the crowd at Long Island’s Great South Bay Music Festival this summer and was looking forward to hitting the road again in November until he fell in what his family is calling a ‘freak accident’ in his backyard this past Monday! Betts is said to be in critical, but stable condition.

WATCH: Mike DelGuidice Nailed the National Anthem at Sunday’s Jets’ Game!

  • 1:26 pm Tuesday, September 18th, 2018 by Donna Donna

It’s a Long Island Cinderella story! Mike DelGuidice went from the Miller Place High School jazz band to forming Billy Joel tribute band Big Shot to joining Billy Joel’s actual band at the Piano man’s request in 2013.

Last Sunday Mike shared a video of himself performing the national Anthem at MetLife Stadium before the Jets game against the Miami Dolphins. Now mind you, the Star Spangled Banner is not an easy song to sing. We’ve seen many an artist mangle the tune, but not Mike, he nailed it and made Long Island proud!
