Once again Vivian Campbell of Def Leppard took some time out for 96.7 KCAL Rockers to fill us in on the upcoming Hysteria shows that Def Leppard will be performing while taking up residency at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas in March. He also gives a very passionate interview on his past time and contributions to Dio and reviving the band under the name Last In Line.
See that? That is what Vance Albitz’s living room is looking like lately. If we have our way, it is gonna look a lot more packed than that in the next few days! I don’t know if you had a chance to hear him with Stu, Tiffany, and Jimbo this morning, but that is a young man with a great plan. After reading an article asking some of our troops what they would most like to get in a box from home where the answer was “A couple of gloves and a ball so we could play catch”, Vance started up the Gloves4Troops web site with his father, and set a goal of collecting 1000 gloves and balls to send out to our troops overseas. Such a pure and simple joy, playing catch, and all of us here at KCAL were moved to find some way to help out. Now Vance plays minor league ball in the St. Louis Cardinals organization, and he’s got to report to spring training on February 18th, so it’s up to us to help him get closer to his goal before then.
If you’ve got an old glove taking up space in the garage, or a few baseballs that are in good shape that you could manage to live without, or if you’ve got 20 bucks that you could kick down to help sponsor sending a box to our troops overseas, please help out. Check out his web site to see how to get your things to him, or bring your gloves or balls down to the station and we’ll get them to him for you. To make it even easier for you to join the effort, we’ll be sending the KCAL Crew out to the various corners of the I.E. over the next few days. Listen in to find out when we’ll be in your neighborhood! Here’s a really cool article that was written about Vance on ESPN too…
People are fretting and panicking over the recent chicken wing shortage. Twenty-six thousand pounds of wings were robbed from a storage facility in Georgia over the weekend. Who keeps their wings in a storage facility? Have you seen the people who frequent those places? I don’t want my wings sitting around in dead Grandma’s old dusty possessions.
I digress…”officials” (who are these people really?) are saying that the chicken population is down by one-percent and there will be fewer wings available to the public for consumption on Sunday for the big game. People are beside themselves over this horrifying, heart-rending news.
They say these numbers will continue to lower until there are no wings left and we’ll have to import our wings from Canada at a higher price. Only the very wealthy will be able to afford and enjoy the delicacy that is Chicken Wings.
People all over will resort to acts of severe desperation. People will start to wing hoard. There will be chickens running around with no wings. People will start to pass off the wings of common birds like blackbirds and finches as chicken wings. Manufactured birds will become the norm. Mayhem will ensue.
The only way to stop this madness is to slowly ween yourself off chicken wings so you don’t go into withdrawal when the shortage happens. Maybe try to visit a chickenadone clinic.

I had the great pleasure of interviewing Geezer Butler of Black Sabbath at NAMM 2013. He was very cool and was great about updating us on the progress of the upcoming Sabbath album and tour. Enjoy!!!
