Hair Metal Roadtrip

It’s Friday and I’m off work. In fact, I’m headed out on a bit of a roadtrip (I’ll tell you why tomorrow). That means I need a roadtrip playlist. I’m looking at 5 hours in the car with Eric. I am not a good passenger – and I hate driving more. When given the option, I always fly but for this trip that really wasn’t an option. So now I’m cultivating music to get me through the monotony… and holiday traffic.

I’ve selected some Amazon playlists and saved them to my account. They have one called Hair Metal Anthems. It’s every famous glam song you can think of, all in one place. There’s a couple things that are not hair metal, like Starship – but overall, the playlist is good and the hits should make everyone happy. I argue with the inclusion of Def Leppard’s “Photograph” here versus “Sugar” but it is what it is. Who else is road tripping this weekend?


Santa Cruz, 'Tell Me Why'

Santa Cruz is coming back with a new album this fall called Katharsis. One of the songs on the album is "Tell Me Why" and you can hear it below. Johnny Cruz is missing now so the band is a bit different.

The track below sort of sounds like Bon Jovi. Santa Cruz is supporting Bon Jovi on tour in Estonia.


Tesla Release 'Taste Like' Video

Time for another video from Tesla. The band released Shock a couple of months ago. Now they have a video for the single "Taste Like." Phil Collen of Def Leppard produced Shock. You can definitely hear that Def Lep vibe on the entire album. Personally, I dig it. Metalboy! might disagree!

Motley Crue Wins Fan Vote

Fans want Motley Crue in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. There is a Voice Your Choice kiosk at the Rock Hall in Cleveland. Regular folks answer questions on the kiosk, specifically "who do you want inducted?" Enough Motley fans have voted, kicking Blink-182 out of the top spot. Is this foreshadowing? Hopefully. Crue deserves to be inducted. The sooner the better.

This Is Where Twitter Shines

I love Tweets like this: classic rock clips. Here's an awesome clip from the Monsters of Rock account - Aerosmith doing 'Train Kept A Rollin' Live On The Midnight Special way back in 1974.
