So I just watched Enforcer’s new video for their song Midnight Vice.  I may move have to move to Sweden. Great scream at 1:43 from Olof “Enforcer”. It would be cool to hear what a few whiskeys would do to his voice.

Top 10 Riffs of the 80’s? More like, “Of All Time!”

So I just read about this article by Michael Wright for Gibson.com where Michael lists his Top 10 Riffs of the 1980’s.  You’ve gotta be really brave to make a list like that, cause like, there were a lot of great riffs in the 80’s. Thing is, I think Michael was wrong. Not only did he forget Metallica and Van Halen as well as a few other bands, but he’s wrong to say these riffs were the best of just the 80’s. I think some of them were the best of all time! Namely #’s 9, 6, 5, obviously 4, 3 (maybe shoulda been 1), 2 (cause it was based on my mom), and 1. The rest of those songs I’ll just pretend they never happened.

AS THEY SLEEP Video Blog – No Party In Sight

As They Sleep put out a video blog showing what went on behind the scenes to make their music video for “Oracle of the Dead”. First of all, it’s not a good idea for a band to take videos of what goes on behind the scenes.  Most of the time you can get arrested for what you do.  But I figured if As They Sleep wants to show how they party, I’ll watch it and see if I’d wanna party with them.

Turns out the video blog was really weird.  There weren’t any girls except when they were shooting the music video.  And those girls were wearing long sleeve shirts and hoodies.  No skin showing at all!   Sort of reminded me of the one time I got backstage to meet Rob Halford.

Also no drugs or booze.  There was a kid in the video, so maybe he was just slow bringing the stuff to the set. Kids aren’t as good at that as they used to be.  Still, it’ll be cool to see the music video when it’s done.

Sebastian Bach Gets Arrested for Being a Rock Star?

What is wrong with Canada?

Sebastian Bach got arrested I guess for smashing glass, fighting, and having some weed. If anything he should have been arrested for not having more drugs on him.  Still, I think it’s cool that he knows how to get fucked up and piss people off.  Canadian police just need to know it’s nothing personal, it’s just how rock stars say, “I’m having a really great time here.  Thanks for the hospitality.” Well Sebastian, I hope the rest of your trip in Ontario is more understanding.
