Why a lot of famous rock bands and artists have been creating their own alcohol brands and selling them…

Have you noticed a new trend going on in the music industry? Yep, that’s right… a lot of famous rock bands and artists releasing their own brand of booze and selling them. Lately, everybody in the rock industry are doing it… selling their own alcohol brand… releasing their own beer, whiskey, wine and other hard liquor with their band name on the product. A lot more bands and artists have been joining the band wagon. Selling their own booze to their fans.

Which bands and artists have been doing this? Well at the top of my head, Megadeth came out with their own beer. Now Iron Maiden and Metallica just joined the bandwagon. I believe Motorhead just released their own whiskey. Other bands that have joined the bandwagon are Mastodon, Opeth, Ac/Dc, Sammy Hagar, Deftones, Anthrax, Ozzy Osbourne, KISS, etc. The list can keep going and going.

This is a new thing going on in the industry lately ’cause simply put, alcohol is a huge seller in America. I think bands just see this as an opportunity as a huge money maker ’cause they know alcohol sells well in America. I believe bands feel that they aren’t making enough money with their music careers by the record labels so bands figure out other ways to keep money flowing in their banks like with their merchandise, VIP packages and now you can add booze to the list.

I’ve been noticing this growing trend lately and I’m sure you have too. I’m sure many of these bands that sell booze to their fanbase are not alcohol drinkers anymore and recovering alcoholics, they just sell their own booze brands as a way to make more money. Bands selling their own booze brands are nothing but a big cash grab obviously.

It’s crazy. I’ve noticed all of these iconic rock bands spending lesser time in the studio and spending more time releasing their own booze brands. You’re going to continue to keep seeing this growing trend. Booze is a huge seller in America ’cause that’s all people want to do these days is drink.

I’m no longer an alcohol drinker myself. I used to be an occasional drinker but I had to stop since I got into weightlifting. We now live in an age where being a drunk is now accepted in America. I don’t drink but if other people want to, that’s their business, not mine.

Lindsay Lohan actually has a point about Amanda Bynes…

A new celebrity feud ignited on the internet between Lindsay Lohan and Nickelodeon star, Amanda Bynes. On Twitter Lindsay wrote, “Why did I get put in jail and a nickelodeon star has had NO punishment(s) so far?”

Before you go hating on Lohan, you should research on the legal problems between both Amanda and Lindsay. Amanda had similar incidents like Lohan did. Amanda had been caught driving under the influence and had a few hit and runs, but she was let go and not sent to jail.

What did Lindsay get? She got way harsher punishment than Amanda got. Getting jail time, rehab, probation, getting forced on house arrest, and Lindsay even spent months wearing an alcohol bracelet.

This is just a perfect example of how fame can control a famous person. Lindsay got worse punishment because of her fame, period.

And now Lindsay just went and did a hit and run in NYC, maybe she did it on purposely to prove a point to Amanda? Amanda was let go, and I’m willing to bet the law will put Lindsay through hell again. Maybe a couple of months in jail and large fine, and Amanda gets nothing. Think how wrong this is. THINK!

Sorry, but I’m siding with the Lohan on this one.

Report: Too much alcohol killed Amy Winehouse, not drugs…

Well, the official cause of death of UK pop star, Amy Winehouse have been announced. Alcohol poisoning was the result of her death, which was, “death by misadventure”. Her blood alcohol levels was more than 5 times than the legal limit for driving.

More on the story, here.

This should be a wake up call to all alcohol drinkers out there. Not just alcoholics, this goes for occasional drinkers too. It’s stuff like this is why I don’t drink anymore.

I used to get myself loaded as fuck at house parties and local band shows, but I had to cut it out. I didn’t want to see my life that way.

There are way too many drunks these days and it’s just sad. There’s nothing great about drinking. It messes your life up, no matter what you think of it.
