If Trump is blocked of the nomination at the Convention, there will probably be a riot…

Even though there are rules in the election process, politicians never follow them anyways. Politicians are always stealing elections and cheating them. Like I said before what’s stopping politicians from doing the same? If Trump is robbed of the nomination at the Convention, I’m predicting there will probably be a riot by angry Trump supporters. If the Convention is successful at stopping Trump, man, they better be ready in Cleveland ’cause Trump supporters will probably start a riot.

If you think the Black Lives Matter riots in Baltimore was bad, wait until the riots happen at Cleveland during the Convention if Trump is denied of the nomination.

It’ll be very sad and unfair to Trump and his supporters if the GOP is successful at stopping him ’cause after all this hard work that Trump went through. That’s why the Convention is gonna get a riot if Trump gets blocked. So the GOP better do the right thing and give Trump the nomination or things are not gonna be pretty after.

Lets hope Trump does get the nomination fairly though. We’re all praying and hoping for Trump. We want him the next POTUS and it’s a shame that people don’t care what we want.


Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees announced!!!

The 2016 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame has been announced. Deep Purple, Cheap Trick, Steve Miller, Chicago and the N.W.A. has all been inducted.

I’m very happy for Deep Purple and Cheap Trick ’cause I’m a huge fan of both of those bands. As for Deep Purple, I’m only a fan of the Ritchie Blackmore era, the Steve Morse era not so much. I’m glad Deep Purple finally got the induction which is long overdue. The question you have to ask is will Ritchie Blackmore finally reunite with Deep Purple to accept the induction with the band and possibly perform with them at the show? Who knows, we’ll have to wait to see what Ritchie himself says. I’m sure Ritchie will be there to accept the induction with the band but performing with them again is all up to him. I would love to see Ritchie perform “Smoke On the Water” and “Highway Star” with them again. That would be fucking cool! Only Ritchie could play those two songs well.

I was never much of a fan of Chicago ’cause I never really listened to them too much. I was never much of a fan of Steve Miller but I heard his songs all over the radio all the time. Steve Miller is a hit maker no doubt!

I’m happy for the NWA getting the induction ’cause agree with it or not, they are deserving of the Hall of Fame.

Sad to see that the prog rock band, YES got snubbed again but hopefully they’ll get their time for the next one.



15 Bands & Artists who STILL need an induction in to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame…

Every year when the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame comes around, I would usually compile a list of bands and artists that still need to get inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony in Cleveland. Sometimes the lists turn out a little different but I don’t mind doing this list again…

Here’s a top fifteen list of legendary bands & artists that hasn’t gotten inducted yet but SHOULD:

  • Deep Purple: Hopefully the next Hall of Fame will be their time!
  • Yes: The legendary prog rock band who’s famous for songs “Roundabout” and “Owner of a Lonely Heart”. Hopefully the next Hall of Fame will be their time as well and I think it will be.
  • Billy Idol:  This guy hasn’t even gotten a nomination yet either. I don’t think he’s ever gotten one and I think it’s time that Billy Idol get inducted? His career is absolutely worthy!
  • Midnight Oil: Another band that I can think of that is worthy of the Hall of Fame and they are eligible too. Pete Garrett is a kick ass rock singer and this band is definitely worthy.
  • Ozzy (solo career): Black Sabbath is already in, what about Ozzy solo?
  • Pat Benatar: The singer known for songs like “Hit Me With Your Best Shot” and “Heartbreaker”. I fuckin’ LOVE Pat Benatar and it’s insane that she isn’t in yet.
  • Jethro Tull: Need I say more? Ian Anderson and the guys are definitely worthy!
  • Joe Satriani: Believe it or not, the Satch is eligible as he has been around for years. He’s definitely worthy as he had one helluva career!
  • Phish: The Grateful Dead are in the Hall of Fame but not Phish. Now there is something wrong with that!
  • Emerson, Lake and Palmer:  It’s also pretty insane that this band isn’t in yet ’cause their album, “Brain Salad Surgery” is a masterpiece and one of my favorite albums of all time.
  • Dire Straits: Huh??? Their hit video “Money for Nothing” which changed music video history is not good enough to get the band inducted? WOW!
  • Sammy Hagar (solo): Van Halen is in but Sammy’s legendary solo career isn’t. He had a very successful and legendary solo career. His video for “I Can’t Drive 55” also helped change the history of MTV.
  • Iron Maiden: One of the greatest metal bands of all time is definitely worthy. It’s a shame that the Hall of Fame doesn’t give much respect to metal.
  • Slayer: Enough said?
  • Motorhead: Yeah, I think they so deserve it.

I’m sure the list can keep going and going.


Laurie Anderson says David Bowie thinks “Lulu” was Lou Reed’s best work and I agree…

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame had their ceremony over the weekend, just last Saturday. Laurie Anderson who is Lou Reed’s wife/widow gave a speech at the Hall of Fame in honor of her late husband who just got inducted.

While she spoke, she revealed that David Bowie told her that Lou Reed’s final album with Metallica, “Lulu” was his best work. Bowie said to Laurie, “Listen, this is Lou’s greatest work. This is his masterpiece. Just wait, it will be like Berlin. It will take everyone a while to catch up.”

When Bowie mentioned the album, “Berlin” that was Lou’s solo album released in 1973. When that album first came out, that album wasn’t received well by critics and fans either. Today, “Berlin” is considered a masterpiece.

Bowie is saying the same thing will happen to “Lulu” and I agree.

Music lovers today may have a hard time enjoying the Lou Reed and Metallica album, “Lulu” but give it time… 10 to 20 years from now, everyone will look at it as a masterpiece. Sometimes it does take 20 years to get people to realize how good of an album it is.

I’ve always thought, “Lulu” was a work of genius ever since I heard it. I couldn’t stop listening to the album. The music was really powerful and so were the lyrics.

When people shit on the album, they just don’t understand “art”. The music on “Lulu” wasn’t made to entertain people. They were meant to tell stories and create art, the way I look at it. I thought “Lulu” was a beautiful record. Despite the negative criticism of the album, it made no. 36 on the Billboard 200 so that’s pretty successful.

While I do love the album myself dearly, “Junior Dad” was the best song off of it, though. Listen to the track below.

Congrats to Lou on making the Hall of Fame finally and RIP. I really was bummed about his passing, he was my favorite artist for years.


Nirvana nominated for possible “Rock and Roll Hall of Fame” induction!!!

In order to be eligible for a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction, an artist or band must have their first album out for 25 years. Well, Nirvana’s first album, “Bleach”, was released 24 years ago. The next Hall of Fame won’t be until 2014 so this is what helps get Nirvana the nomination. There’s obviously going to be a lot of controversy over this ’cause as you all know, Nirvana isn’t for everyone. Nirvana certainly deserves this honor and if Kurt was still alive, I’m sure he would be all for it too. Nirvana means so much to me. They’ve pretty much helped change my life. Their songwriting and musicianship may have been pretty questionable — Kurt may not have been the greatest singer and guitarist but you don’t need to be to write killer and amazing songs! Most importantly, Nirvana were the greatest live performers. It was their live shows that really mattered. Kurt may have dressed up in drag onstage quite a lot and he smashed a lot of instruments but that’s what made him amazing. He wasn’t afraid to be different on stage.

If Nirvana wins the induction and they probably will, it’ll be interesting to see who is going to induct them. Hopefully, it won’t end up being Courtney Love. I don’t think she’ll be any part of the induction ’cause she never got along with Dave and Krist over the years. Courtney and Nirvana always had a big feud over legal rights, and all that bullshit. I think Frances Bean Cobain (Kurt’s daughter) should induct them or maybe the Nirvana producer, Butch Vig. Maybe the guys from the Meat Puppets — Cris and Curt Kirkwood should induct them too. Any of those could be a possibility.

To see the full nomination list for 2014 Hall of Fame, check it out, here.

Kiss got nominated again this year but don’t get your hopes up if they’ll actually make it… they could get snubbed again for the 20th time, I lost count.

I can see Peter Gabriel winning his nomination. Hall and Oates for sure. The Zombies I would like to see make it in. Deep Purple and Yes both deserve their time. Linda Ronstadt deserves her time as well!

I have a feeling they’ll probably end up inducting another rap artist and if they do, they should give it to the N.W.A. They are more deserving than LL Cool J.

That’s all. Just thought I’d give you my quick thoughts on the Hall of Fame.


Why missing people being found alive shouldn’t be huge news stories…

While it’s good news to hear that three missing Cleveland, Ohio women have been found alive after all these years, the media should back off. Of course, they won’t. Whenever somebody missing gets found alive, the news media are all over it. The found missing person usually gets turned into some celebrity of some sort. Look at Jaycee Dugard, perfect example. What’s next for Amanda Berry and the other two girls? Book deals? Reality shows? *pukes*

I didn’t care to watch the live-stream stuff of the Amanda Berry story. Look, it’s great news that these girls have been found alive; don’t get me wrong, ya know? It’s just pathetic that the media have to be all over them. Money and ratings; that’s all they care about. The news media really needs to back off and give these people some space. They deserve their privacy and get their lives back together after being away from their families for so many years. The media is a cruel and evil thing.

It’s a miracle that missing people get found alive but leave them the hell alone. That’s my point. When returning to society after all these years, their privacy is still gone because they become a public figure because of it. It’s making me sick. All of it.

The family didn’t have to let Amanda give out a public statement today if they didn’t want to. They had all the right to tell the media to fuck off, that’s what I would have done.


Congratulations go out to Rush, who are the new Rock and Roll Hall of Famers!!!

Well guys, they finally made it! Rush is finally in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame! After years of fans complaining of them not making it in, the Hall of Fame finally heard us and gave us what we want. I agree that Rush deserves this and they should have been inducted ever since the Hall of Fame started, a long time ago. The Hall of Fame have never been progressive rock/metal friendly at all. They are starting to give progressive rock and metal a little more respect, as they inducted Metallica, last year, but they are still falling behind on legendary progressive and metal bands.

Other inductees who made it in 2013 are Heart, Randy Newman, Public Enemy, Donna Summer, Albert King, Lou Adler, and Quincy Jones.

See the link, here.

I’m disappointed that Deep Purple and Joan Jett got the snub, but there’s always next year.

What other progressive rock and metal bands deserve an induction? Well, other than Deep Purple… Megadeth certainly deserves in. Jethro Tull too. Dream Theater, maybe? Iron Maiden, most definitely. Kiss, of course. There are too many that deserves in.


Report: Rush finally gets nominated for “Rock and Roll Hall of Fame” after years of getting snubbed…

The legendary prog rock band, Rush, have been getting snubbed for a nomination at the “Rock and Roll Hall of Fame” every year, but this time, they finally got one! While I’m happy that Rush finally got the nomination, don’t be surprised if the voters don’t pick them to get inducted though. I’m not getting my hopes up yet, but it would be awesome if they got the induction ’cause they deserve this more than anyone.

I’m also happy that Deep Purple finally got a nod too ’cause they’ve been getting ignored by the Hall of Fame as well. I hope both bands will get it. I also hope Joan Jett, Albert King, and Heart will get it too. Donna Summer have been getting nominated every year but she never got the induction. Hopefully, she’ll get it this time in honor of her death earlier this year.

I hope the Hall of Fame will do the right thing and induct Rush this time, ’cause I’m a huge fan of them as well. I own several of their albums in my collection and have seen them live in concert once.

More on the story, here.



Report: Rush’s, Alex Lifeson, finally responds about getting snubbed from the Hall of Fame…

Do you think the guys in the band, Rush, are upset about getting ignored by the Hall of Fame constantly? Nope. Think again. The band seems pretty cool with it. Alex Lifeson, spoke his thoughts about it to Rollingstone magazine, and he says, the band simply doesn’t care. He says, the band was honored more awards that are more meaningful than the Hall Of Fame.

If the band ever get nominated, the band wouldn’t turn down an induction, ’cause simply put, they don’t want to be rude (like Axl Rose).

Read Alex’s thoughts, here.

I’m sure Rush would make their way into the Hall of Fame. If not? Who cares is right! Their legacy is bigger than the Hall of Fame, so who needs ’em? Rush rules. Always loved them myself! I saw them in concert one year too.


Introducing the new Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame Inductees for 2012!!!

Well, the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame 2012 inductees have been announced today. Here they are.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers – A well deserved induction, I’m sure the guitarists Hilel Slovak and John Frusciante will get inducted with them, but will Dave Navarro get inducted with them too? Dave Navarro was guitarist for the Chili Peppers for one album, so I’m sure Dave will be part of it. I’ve been a fan of the Chili Peppers for years and even seen them live in concert once. Love the Chili Peppers.

Guns N’ Roses – This one is not such a big surprise at all, I think we all knew that they were going to make it, no matter what happened. Guns N’ Roses had way too many different members over the years. I’m sure they’ll all get inducted with Axl. Most importantly the original members: Slash, Duff, Izzy, etc. Now let the original members reunion speculation begin!

Beastie Boys – I know this choice is going to get a lot of hate and negative feedback. People will accuse them of not being “rock”, and I’m sure some of you will think, “What were they thinking?” Of course, the Beastie Boys are fuckin’ rock, man. If you don’t think, “Fight For Your Right” or “Sabotage” are rock songs then you need your ears checked. The Beastie Boys had a legendary career, they accomplished so much,  love ’em or hate ’em. They were the ones that got this heavy rap rock thing going. So I think this induction is well deserved!

Donovan – He’s a Scottish singer/songwriter famous for his anthem, “Sunshine Superman”, which is a song that I love. I don’t listen to too much Donovan but I respected the legacy and his career. He should have been inducted into the Hall of Fame years ago, it’s about time, he’s in!

Laura NyroShe was a singer/songwriter and pianist from New York City, she died in ’97 of cancer. I don’t know much about her but I heard her songs before. “Stone Cold Picnic” is a pretty cool tune.

The FacesThis was Rod Stewart’s rock n’ roll band before his solo tour. It also had Ronnie Wood in this band. I never liked Rod Stewart too much but he did kick ass in this band though. I loved him in the Faces. Maybe there will be a reunion with this band at the Hall of Fame as well.

The Small Faces – I don’t know much about them but I do know that the Faces were formed because of them.

Freddie King – He is an American electric blues guitarist, famous for his instrumental anthem, “Hideaway”, which is also a track that I love. He was a pioneer of putting blues & rock together.

Congratulations to the new Hall of Famers!
