It was a shame when the Crossroads left the Chicago venues and headed to the East coast, mostly because I was unable to go. I did, however, pick up the Blu-ray as soon as it came out and I was not disappointed. The music is amazing, the talent unbelievable, and as expected it turned out to be a rare night of great performances.
Even if you aren’t a drummer you probably noticed the amazingly cool custom drumset used by Chad Smith of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. It was covered in every logo from every NFL team. It lit up like a nigh light.. and it could be yours.
The NFL is auction off the drum set. Ok. Correction. They have split the original set in half; one set for the NFC and one for the AFC.
At the time of my writing, one kit was over 12k and the other just under 10k. The auctions close on February 7th.
In their first ceremony in over 5 years the master guitar guru himself Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble have been inducted into the Musicians’ Hall of Fame.
This is a hall of fame that can actually live up to its name. A true honor to be inducted, as any of this years latest members will tell you.
