JOIN CAPONE'S ROCK MAFIA CHARITY RIDERS MC
It’s a part of everyone’s childhood who grows up in Chicagoland, a joyous and almost miraculous occasion that one cannot predict, only enjoy to its fullest potential – The Snow Day.
O how I would wait at the large round antique oak table in my parents kitchen, chewing down a bowl of Lucky Charms while listening to another caller on the small black am radio say “Hello Wally?”, hoping and praying that the Barrington 220 school district was going to be announced as closed the next time the news person ran down the list.
If you have attended any of the cool charity motorcycle rides around Chicago, Indiana, or southern Wisconsin over the last couple of years you may have seen me or some of my brothers wearing our LOOP patches supporting the event.. and that is exactly what we are all about.
Eric Clapton is enough of a music veteran to know rock rule #13 – There is no retiring in rock and roll, however he has decided that the time has almost come to retire from the road.
“So the idea is I'm taking a leaf out of JJ [Cale]'s book: When I'm 70, I'll stop. I won't stop playing or doing one-offs, but I'll stop touring, I think." Said Eric Clapton to Rolling Stone.
Now, considering that Mr. Clapton will turn 68 years old this march, his current tour might very well be your last chance to see him.. “on tour”. He simply doesn’t like the travel.
Mr. Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers are heading off on a summer concert tour that will take them to Summerfest on June 28th, Milwaukee, WI, Marcus Amphitheater/Summerfest. Looks like that will be the closest Tom Petty will come to a Chicago concert this year.
You can find ticket info and on-sale dates at TomPetty.com. Here's the itinerary:
What goes great with live rock and roll? Beer!
What is made of sweet delicious hops and barley? Beer!

Thank God, I have had enough of rock bands coming out with wine. Seriously.
I fully intend to live forever. The old saying “It’s better to burn out than to fade away”, yeah, only if you can do a real slow burn, say, for a thousand years. I fully intend to be that crotchety old man sitting on a front porch, probably connected to some damn machine keeping my organs alive, with my seriously old Gibson Flying V sitting by side, while talking to the local news reporter chic on what is like to be 215 years old and yet another year as the oldest living human being.
