I don’t know if you’ve heard, but Six Flags announced yesterday that after 36 years they’re closing the legendary Collossus Roller Coaster at Magic Mountain in Valencia as of August. Yeah, there are newer and crazier roller coasters, but damn, I know a lot of us are gonna miss the old wooden monster! I was there in the summer of 1978 when it opened, and can’t count how many times I bounced around in those uncomfortable cars. Might need to hit the park one more time before it goes away. Here’s some front seat video to remind you of what its like…
We had a great time hangng out with everyone at the Redlands Chili Cook-Off and Car Show this past weekend at Sylvan Park in Redlands! The weather was perfect for plenty of cold beers and live rockin’ from The Yard Dogs, plus the KCAL Chili won 1st Place!
We’re already making plans to be there again next year, and we hope the Redlands Optomist Club raised a ton of cash to help kids in the Inland Empire. Thanks to all the KCAL Rockers that came out for the fun. You Rock!
For the second year in a row, Metallica hosted Metallica Night at AT&T Park in San Francisco a couple of weeks ago. And once again this year we sent a lucky KCAL Rocker up to enjoy the fun and a great weekend in the City By The Bay. But if you didn’t win, the band is offering up a free download of their version of the National Anthem they performed before the game. Watch it on the video below, and then grab the MP3 here!
King of the Cage Jr. Welter Weight Champion Josh Aveles is all set to defend his tonight at San Manuel Indian Bingo & Casino at King of the Cage’s “Slugfest”. But before he steps into the cage tonight he stepped into the KCAL Studio with us…
If you missed it on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, you are not going to believe what happens towards the end of the video! More cowbell anyone?
It’s the easiest contest ever! Just take a picture of yourself, or someone else, throwing the rock horns and send it in to firstname.lastname@example.org. That’s it. You’re entered to win a trip to San Francisco to catch Metallica Night at A T & T Park on Friday May 16th! We’ve even got our new 3-D billboard throwing the horns on the northbound 215 just before Barton Road.
The KCAL Rockers have been sending in some great shots, from some great locations, and with some great guests so far. Check out a bunch of them here. And a bunch more here. But be sure to get yours in by Tuesday the 29th at midnight, because we find out who’s gonna win on Stu, Tiffany, and Jimbo’s show on Wednesday the 30th!
So, Show Us Your Horns Inland Empire…You Rock!
Did you go to church on Sunday or smoke pot? Kimmel’s pedestrian question is hilarious!
Well, the after all of the rumors and speculation, the induction ceremonies for this year’s class heading inot the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame put on what most are saying was a very entertaining show! Joan Jett came out with Nirvana and kicked into Smells Like teen Spirit, and the band was joined by several others during their set. better yet, they all went out after the ceremonies and found a cool little bar in Brooklyn to jam in till the wee hours of the morning. How’s you have liked to stumble into that place? Here’s a little cell phone video shot from the crowd:
The founding members of Kiss managed to put aside most of their hostility towards each other (for a few minutes anyway) and all came up and accepted their place in the Hall after a great speech by Rage Against The Machine and Audisoslave’s amazing guitarist, Tom Morello. Morello talked about how Kiss inspired him to pick up a guitar, and how all the crap his high school classmates gave him about liking Kiss made him tougher and more passionate about his music.
Even surviving Nirvana members Dave Grohl, Krist Novelselick, and Kurt Cobain’s widow, Courtney Love, managed to put aside years of throwing daggers back and forth and not kill each other as they took the stage together.
Looking forward to checking out the whole show when it comes on HBO in late May!
I had a blast judging the 2014 San Bernardino High School Mr. Cardinal Competition yesterday! I was so impressed with all of the contestants especially Samuel Moreno who won the whole thing! He will now represent SBHS at over 100 charity events over the next year! Go Cardinals!
And yeah I am wearing a suit! Can you believe it!?
