CAPONE'S ROCK MAFIA CHARITY RIDERS
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.
You might want to file this one under the ol “WTH” category. Blank On Blank has decided to animate the final interview Jimi Hendrix ever did.. on September 11th, 1970. Now, understand, this was not a tv or video interview. It was an audio interview recorded just one week before his death in London.
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.
“This is just something else,” said Corki Casey O’Dell. “I keep pinching myself, because I think I'm dreaming. I would have never thought.”
As a guitar player, many of us have heard it all before.. You can’t bring that on the plane. You’ll need to buy an extra ticket. Your going to have to check that in baggage. Guess what? It’s all BS. You absolutely can bring your guitar on the plane as carry on! In fact, it’s the law.
