I'm in that moment of time where I'm so happy and so sad.  Looking forward to a concert is one of the greatest feelings in the world to me.  Being at the show IS the greatest feeling in the world.  Then...it's over and I feel sad.  The Def Leppard, Poison, Tesla concert at The Save Mart Center this past Monday night was pure joy to me.  I love all 3 bands and was able to sing along with every song from every band.  There was no way anyone could wipe the smile off of my face and the excitment and pure happiness that overcomes me from being at a rock concert.  These are the moments I live for.  It's highs and lows because now I'm sad that it's over.  The good news?  It's easily remedied with tickets to another show so I have something to look forward to again.  HA!

With the success of Desert Trip last year the idea of classic rock concert festivals has resurfaced with a bullet on a power pack!  Rumor has it that The Eagles and Fleetwood Mac will co-headline a West Coast/East Coast festival.  Get the details here.

It has to be that I've worked with so many mascots in my radio career that this video just tickles me to tears.  Enjoy.  I've been watching it once a day to keep my spirits up.  Thank you White Bear.  HA!

When I was very young the new hot thing was the video magic machine known as the "VCR".  There was another form known as the "Betamax".  My Dad loved anything new and technologically advanced so he always wanted the best which at the time was The Betamax.  We used it to record home videos of soccer and gymnastics, legendary televised boxing events, all kinds of T.V.  specials (like "Fresno" and "Lonesome Dove") and yes...movies. 
Every once in a while we were blessed with the T.V.  airing of a great movie so when that happened you HAD to record it.  We recorded Rocky III and Star Wars back to back on one beta tape.  I must have watched those two movies at least a hundred times each and I'm NOT exaggerating.   They are still my favorite movies to this day.

Looking back and looking at myself today it would be wrong to say that the character of Princess Leia didn't influence me greatly.  Princess Leia was one of the first, if not best representations of a strong, realistic female character in film and at a young age I watched her over and over and over again.  Memorizing every word, facial expression, idea, tone, loving and or sarcastic statement she made.  All this while she competed with, worked with, lead, loved and worked against the men that surrounded her. 

There are two amazing people and one special character to thank for the independence and strength I have been so fortunate to experience so far in this exciting life...my Mom, my Dad and Princess Leia.

The Grammy Nominations have been released!  Honestly, I could give a crap about Beyoncé, Ariana Grande (no clue who that is) and "new artists" but I'm always intrigued by the talented classic rock artists who continue to remind us that music can be great and still receive nominations. There are no surprises on some...some... of the nominees, Bowie, Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, The Beatles...and...Kip Winger?  That's right folks, 80's hair rocker turns classical composer and it's good.  Very good.  Let's see if he gets the full nod in 2017!  I hope so! See where your classic rock artists come in this year.  Click here for all the details!

In the words of Bob & Tom Show character Donnie Baker..."I'll say it right to your face"...Tom Cruise is my favorite actor.  He gets no love from Hollywood or the millions of award shows that they like to throw themselves.  Everyone who acts WITH him seems to grab the awards.  He's just Tom and he makes bad ass movies and I can't wait to see Jack Reacher 2 coming out this Friday, Oct. 21st.  By the way...does the guy age at all?  Regardless of how one may feel about his personal life it has to be noted that he is a great actor and a true movie star.  Let's face it...there aren't too many real movie stars anymore.  When you think of this guy's movie catalog it's pretty mind blowing.  I don't care what people think...Tommy is my favorite and dang if Jack Reacher 2 doesn't look like a kick ass movie!

Dang!  What a great album.  I remember getting the cassette tape as a birthday present.  It then took a rather perminant spot in the car.  So many great songs.  Fun to blast and cruise to.  Remember Dr. Feelgood!

I love gymnastics.  When I was very young I remember watching an American gymnast named Tracee Talavera.  I watched her tumble across the blue floor on the television.  I was mesmerized.  I can still remember turning around from the T.V. and looking at my parents and saying, or rather screaming,  "I want to do that!".  I had played every sport you could think of before I discovered gymnastics and I enjoyed them all but this, this was different. This sport spoke to me and nothing was going to stop me from doing it.  Gymnastics took over my life (and the lives of my poor parents) and I loved it.  After hundreds of leotards, bumps, rips, bruises, tears, smiles, flips, ribbons and miles traveled...it was time to roll up the Mary Lou Retton posters that covered my bedroom wall and hang up my hat.  I had one too many bruises and missed one too many social events.  I was never going to The Olympics, I think I knew that all along but gymnastics taught me discipline, teamwork and individual drive. Even though I missed out on many social, school and family events I wouldn't change one thing.  It also gave me some of the best friends of my life, friends that I still hang out with today.  Every four years when the Olympics come around I get to re-live that feeling that I had so long ago.  I can hear what's in their heads, I know what they're thinking, how they feel.  I can smell the chalk on their hands, feel their years of aches and pains, the nerves and the joy.  I get to remember what it felt like to strive for perfection with no fear at such a young age.  This year, our team is going to bring it all home, again.  I will be right there watching and cheering them on the whole time.  Go USA!!

Lemmy?  David Bowie?  Natalie Cole and now Glenn Frey?  It's too much to bare.  For me...Glenn Frey is the most painful.  It's no secret that Van Halen is my favorite band but I will say it anytime, anyday to anyone that The Eagles put on the best live show I've ever seen and they may just be the greatest band of all time.   Today I feel more blessed than ever to have been able to see them live.  The talent in The Eagles is almost overwhelming.  There are so many songs to listen too as we mourn but this one seems to bring the tears to my eyes.  It demonstrats the most amazing vocal harmonies and the simple music that manages to make you tap your feet.  RIP Glenn Frey.

It's time.  The moment so many fans have been waiting for is here.  It expected to be the biggest movie of all time. Star Wars is one of those epic things where there really are no such thing as band wagoners.  You're either a fan or your not.  There is just A LOT of fans.  For those who are not fans and don't plan on being a part of this historic cinema event...I promise...you are missing out.  This is going to be incredible.
