Before last week I had never been to Europe. Just around the USA, Mexico City and Puerto Rico. I’m 49 and after this whole trip, I slightly regret not having traveled overseas before. But now I have the bug. Let’s talk metal now. The Keep It True festival has been on my radar for many […]

To say I love Paula Abdul would be an understatement.  I finally met her last year and when the opportunity arose this year, I jumped on it! Paula announced her Straight Up Paula tour a few months back and the most convenient show with a meet and greet was in Las Vegas, a place I […]

Last night marked probably the 15th time I’ve seen Arsis since their early days back in Virginia where I first became pals with mainman James Malone and the band.  I’m impressed more and more by the band every time I see them. When the Bloodletting Tour got announced I was super stoked as Arsis doesn’t […]

For the second time in a week I got to watch Vicious Rumors play my favorite album of theirs, Digital Dictator.  They’re on a 40+ date tour for the 30th anniversary of that album.  After rolling through the LP tracks with precision, we got a few extra tracks from the other Carl Albert era albums.  […]

With little to no sleep from staying up till almost dawn with Satan after their Frost and Fire IV concert the night before, Kelz and I scooped up one of my Austin friends and headed down to Hollywood to see them again at the famed Whisky A-Go-Go.  We dropped my friend off and headed to […]

FROST AND TIRED That’s how I feel today.  Worn out, yet refreshed.  Work has been a bit stressful lately and getting out of town for a few days was just what I needed; even better that it was for the fourth (and final?) installment of the Frost and Fire fest.  This was also my fourth […]

Omen in Laredo?  OK, why not?  My friend Lisa and I drove in to Laredo late night after the Scorpions show (see previous post) to meet up with her husband and his family for the weekend.  I was pretty wiped out by the time we got there and fell asleep pretty quickly.  We got up […]

Scorpions came back through on a make-up date for the show they canceled last year because of some health issues with Klause.  I ended up with a pair of great seats and no date.  I was heading to Laredo after the show with my friends Lisa and Logan and offered one of the tickets to […]

What a whirlwind weekend. I’ve no deep connection with Armored Saint beyond always liking them and never thought they did a truly bad album.  They are currently playing Symbol of Salvation in its entirety and that’s one of my faves.  The short tour wasn’t coming to Texas so Rodney and I decided to head north […]

Slayer said they were calling it quits and that this would be their final tour, so why not go?  No need to get too misty-eyed with Slayer memories, but I first saw them on the Seasons tour with Testament on the Souls of Black tour.  My nose got slightly rearranged in a pit that night.  […]
