In honor of Veteran’s Day, I chose to pick a video that reminds us of why we are able to do what we do. We should all remember the heroes, of the past and present and yet to serve this great nation of ours. I for one am very grateful. Here is Sammy Hagar’s Remember The Hero’s video from his Three Lock Box album:
Cage The Goda released their debut video for their up and coming EP, Favorite Sin. This is the title track from that record. I must say I really like this song and look forward to the release. It comes out November 24th. If you are looking for a new rock band, these guys are it. Check out the video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hjr2dkyBwmw
Magnum will release their 19th album (didn’t realize they had that many) on March 24, 2014. The album is titled Escape From The Garden and they will start a co-headlining tour with Saga in April 2014 to support it.
As always there are rumors that Ted Nugent will run for the U.S. Presidency. He claims he is being asked to run for it. Maybe he can get Gene Simmons to be his VP, since he is also rumored to run.
As I have told you before, I don’t really care about the Artic Monkey’s.
