Hey, Buddy here. I was wondering if you'd blog about the Extreme show. Didn't expect to get a shout-out, though. :-)

I only caught the last few songs of the Fantasy Camp thing, but it was pretty cool. I wish I'd shown up earlier to see more of it.

I've tried and failed to get into King's X over the years - I own their first three albums, I think, and like a few tracks, but just never "got it" completely. They KILLED live, though - just awesome.

And Extreme? What can you say? They rule! I saw them at the Fox on the _III Sides_ tour, and that was fantastic (with a horn section and everything). This was a more stripped-down show, but it was still fantastic. They played 2 hours of mostly old favorites, and could have done 2 more. The new stuff sounded good, too - it really fit into the set well. Agreed on Cherone - he's the best frontman since Freddie Mercury. He was good with Van Halen live (though the album he did with them wasn't very good), and he was awesome with Queen live - I wish he was touring with them, instead of Paul Rodgers. I'm definitely looking forward to seeing Extreme come through town again.

Oh, and thanks for the shout-out at the concert last night - it was awesome getting booed by thousands of U[sic]GA fans that were all sitting BEHIND me at the show. :-)


That is awesome. Easily the most rock and roll blog I've ever read! Like borderline Rock and Roll nerdy...sounds like you had a blast!

See you Sunday night at Music That Builds Tour Nashville on my bday!


I will post my Extreme Pictures tomorrow



I've heard it said that the music someone listens to comes out in the music they make? Would you find that to be true for you? If so, which band's music was or has been most influential in developing your personal musical style?


Sounds like an awesome time! If my "back in the day" bands were to have a reunion it would be something like...Well I'm not sure I should even go there! =P

I just realized I accidentally stole your "blogroll please" thing and put it on mine! It was subconscious, I swear!!!


Hey there! Glad to see you bloggin' again! I love Extreme & King's X both but I've never seen either live. Sounds like you had a blast. That Rock & Roll fantasy camp sounds awesome too! See you this Sunday in Nashville! :)


The question is did Extreme play "Do You Want To Play"? One of the best guitar solo songs ever.


Just when we thought you'd never blog again!


That sounds simply amazing. :) Some of the names I recognize, others I don't. Now I have to check them all out. LOL

I just e-mailed Lee to see if I could get my SLR into the Phoenix show. I have my fingers crossed and prayers said. LOL Maybe you could write me a note. (JK.. you probably don't remember that at Abravanel Hall in SLC, but I won't forget it.)


Awesome....I saw KingsX back in 93 or 94. They crushed it.


Was definitely one of the best show's I've ever seen. Just gotta keep looking for a bootleg video :) Hope to catch up with you this Sunday in Nashville.

    What's in my CD player

    • R.E.M. -

      R.E.M.: Accelerate CD/DVD
      Athens' own return with a trashy cool offering - their most consistent album in years. I think they're mad at their dad or something (****)

    • The Rolling Stones -

      The Rolling Stones: Shine a Light: Original Soundtrack
      This is what a live album SHOULD sound like. Unedited, unfixed - just a good recording of what happened that night... (****)

    • Mudcrutch -

      Mudcrutch: Mudcrutch
      Tom Petty and Mike Campbell reunite with their old band and forge an instant classic. (****)

    • Counting Crows -

      Counting Crows: Saturday Nights & Sunday Mornings
      It was pretty gutsy to lay it out the way they did: all the rockers on the "Saturday Night" section and all the ballads on the "Sunday Morning" side. But it works, and in a major way. Some of the best guitar work I've heard in recent memory. (*****)

    • The Black Crowes -

      The Black Crowes: The Lost Crowes
      WHY DIDN'T ANYBODY TELL ME ABOUT THIS RECORD?! You've heard most of these songs on other records, but it's just so raw and band-y here. Fall in love with the best band in the world all over again... (*****)

    • Pillar -

      Pillar: For The Love Of The Game
      So far this is the album to beat for the rock album of 2008 in the Christian market... The title track has kind of been my "theme song" the last couple of months. (*****)

    • Maylene and the Sons of Disaster -

      Maylene and the Sons of Disaster: II
      The perfect blend of Southern rock and metal - this is my favorite album right now. (*****)

    • Kevn Kinney -

      Kevn Kinney: Broken Hearts & Auto Parts
      I picked this up in Athens the other day. It starts out a little slow, but turns into vintage Kevn Kinney/Drivin n Cryin. This is as good as anything he/they have ever put out! (****)

    • The Black Crowes -

      The Black Crowes: Warpaint
      If you look up "killer" in the dictionary, you will find a picture of these guys.

    • Baroness -

      Baroness: Red Album
      So far the most original and inspiring music I've heard this year... (*****)

    • Down -

      Down: Down - Over The Under
      This is easily the most rockin' records I've ever owned. It's like redneck Soundgarden. Heaven for a dude like me... (*****)

    • Demon Hunter -

      Demon Hunter: Storm the Gates of Hell
      Don't let the "metalcore" label fool you. This album features some of the biggest and hookiest choruses you'll ever hear. "Lead Us Home", "Carry Me Down", and "Thorns" are great examples. Plus I think they'll give you your money back if the title track doesn't make your ears bleed :) (*****)
