4 nov. 2007, 3h52m par rtreynorFor only $9,599.99 - the Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp offers quite a bang for your 5-day vacation buck. At least you get to stay at the Mandalay Bay in Vegas. But I don't think the tuition includes any casino chips.
This year's counsellors include:
Roger Daltrey (impressive!)
Joe Walsh (entertaining!)
Slash (someone to bum smokes from!)
Jack Bruce (I hope we don't have to perform "White Room!")
Vince Neil (uh. okay. sure. I guess!)
and don't forget
Mark Slaughter, Alan White, and...and yes, you guessed it! Kelly Keagy! Yes, that's right: THE Kelly Keagy. The original, and still the best drummer for Night Ranger!
It's a bit too hard-rock to be my personal fantasy camp. Two Guns 'N Roses, plus guys from Iron Maiden, Slaughter, and Temple Of Brutality...
But it still sounds kinda fun. Not $10k-for-5-days fun, but if I won it for free, I wouldn't complain.
Roger is the coolest dude in the lineup.
7 oct. 2007, 18h49m par bubba-rocksThe Melodic Rock Fest in South Bend on Saturday was AWESOME! A bunch of bands that you've probably never heard of, but several others who you have...
Jeff Scott Soto (the voice of half the songs on the movie Rock Star and the most recent Journey singer) was spectacular...a lot better than I expected! I was halfway expecting a wimpy song selection, but his stuff is rockin'! I'm going to have to track down some of his recordings.
Scrap Metal was a band featuring Gunnar and Matthew Nelson (yes, the Nelson twins from the early 90s), Mark Slaughter (lead singer from Slaughter), Kelly Keagy (the drummer from Night Ranger), and Eric Martin (the lead singer from Mr. Big[artist]/). There were some special guests that came out on stage during the Scrap Metal performance:
Joe Lynn Turner (from Rainbow)
Kevin Chalfant (had a solo performance earlier in the night, was in a band called The Storm and just released a Journey tribute album recently)
Jim Peterik and Jimi Jamison (Survivor...the "Eye of the Tiger" guys)
21 jui. 2006, 5h29m par mikeroach113You might be wondering what my so-called musical universe is like. Well, it's probably something like this:
It would be like it is today with just these changes:
•The Wall is the most successful album of all time.
•"Sentimental Street" is Night Ranger's biggest hit, not "Sister Christian", plus Night Ranger's album "7 Wishes" is one of the biggest selling albums of all-time
•Shitty boy bands (*NYSNC, Backstreet) and teen pop (Britney, J-Lo, Christina) don't exist
•Peter Frampton's two Atlantic Records releases are million sellers, and don't just have a cult following, and "All Eyes On You" is a #1 single
•Anime music is played on mainstream radio and Adult Contemporary and AOR radio stations
•"After The Fire" is Roger Daltrey's biggest and most successful solo single
•Johnny Hates Jazz and John Parr have more than just two top 40 singles
•Foreigner's "Waiting For A Girl Like You" and "I Don't Want To Live…
