Nugent, Rock And Brain Dead Carcasses

Posted by & filed under News, Slideshow.

There is nothing I would want more than for Mr. Rock and Mr. Nugent to have a bullet placed squarely between the eyes and to be photographed flopped over someone’s arm. What a fantastic photo that would be! Lots of blood, maybe some grey matter smeared on the ground

The Clash: New Year’s Day ’77 Reviewed

Posted by & filed under News, Slideshow, Television.

I honestly thought I would get a bit melancholy in watching it or bored but just the opposite happened . The mixing of history and music worked so incredibly well that I was actually able to sit still through the entire program- and that is a rarity for someone with the extreme ADD I seem to posses.

3-2-1 Happy New Year!

In an odd and somewhat disturbing twist I would like to serious it up a bit and thank you for your readership. In a world filled with 40 million blogs and flash its nice to know our followers not only increase but seem to be quite the smarty’s offering positive insight in a troll filled ‘net.

Lil Wayne, Cash Money Prisoner

Posted by & filed under Gossip, Slideshow.

The only victim here of course, is the fan but isn’t that the usual? As Wayne bitches about departing his label I cant seem to find any sort of legal actions in his attempt to depart the label that has cut him checks since 1991. So is this reality or ddelusional

Warped Tour 2015: Let The Announcements Begin

Posted by & filed under Live, Slideshow.

Will I support Warped? Hell yes I will. They need a mom on board but now when I attend it’s with the jaded eye of a skeptic, what will they do next to sour my romanticized version of the event? I can’t even imagine but I have faith in Kevin Lyman and his band of masterminds to not make this Disneyworld

Former Cake Drummer Gets 15 Years To Life

Posted by & filed under Slideshow.

We here at rocknyc have never had a problem discussing this topic. Fact is our society frowns upon it and hide as you like it happening all the time and in your town. Rock and Rollers just happen to have an entourage that can protect them from being ‘exposed

Black 47 Infinity Hall Hartford, CT Sunday October 19th, 2014

Posted by & filed under Live, Slideshow.

You cannot in good measure critique a band on a farewell journey. They’re emotionally charged, tired and seemingly on auto pilot as they work their way tying up the loose strings of their time together. A band of brothers and an army of 6, Black47 have done what they wanted to do- raise awareness, raise a fist and raise a pint, with the convictions of superheroes.

Gwar Tours This Fall

Posted by & filed under Slideshow, Upcoming Tours.

A band with no real purpose in this world but to make 40 year old dads and 11 year old boy fist pump and scream “yeah!’ like primal animals. A band with a gimmick will rarely get any positive response from me mostly because what you sound like is more than what you appear to be

Englands "Alt-Fest" Aint Gonna Happen

Posted by & filed under Slideshow.

You have to love the full disclosure approach on this one and it is very interesting. The couple explaining in detail the logistical nightmare of a fest and educating us all on how these things can simply fall apart. Looks like Marilyn Manson, The Cult, Gary Numan and more will need to find another gig.

Gary Numan "I Am Dust" Video Review

Posted by & filed under Slideshow, Video Review.

The video is utter garbage and I hope there wasn’t much coin invested in it. Honestly its the discarded entrails of a Manson vid with just enough generic imagery to be so cliche its ridiculous. Gary you look like hell even in that lighting its simpy the blue black hair it doent work after age 30, set it free my dear

Television Lite; August 11th – August 15th, 2014

Dolly Parton and Taylor Swift. There you have it- the stand outs of the week and perhaps I should spell that weak. There are some other cool bits though. Mikhail Baryshnikov (who my mom had a massive crush on) is on Tavis (say who?) and Jimmy Kimmel sits his ass on Kelly and Michael. What a drag that is. Meh, carry on.

Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame and Alan Freeds Ashes

Posted by & filed under Slideshow.

First and foremost who is Alan Freed? He is was a DJ, not a Skrillex type dj but a disc jockey who played vinyl albums at a radio station. Its an odd concept in a digital world but thats his schtick. The unique part of Freed is he is credited with creating the world ‘rock and roll’ as music catagory
