I went to see Helmet last Saturday and they rocked. The only thing that sucked is they did not play my favorite song Unsung. Have you ever been to a show where they didn’t play your favorite?
We know that Motley Crue promised that their new set of shows at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas were going to be dangerous, and with a show name “An Intimate Evening in Hell”, we probably should’ve guessed there would be lots of pyrotechnics. According to the review of opening night, there is no lack of fire! Here’s a bit of not so great cell phone video for you too:
So, if you’re heading out to Sin City to catch one of the shows, and especially if you were one of our lucky winners of those killer VIP package, don’t forget to pack the fire-proof undies!
KISS isn’t wasting any time assembling their new arena football army! Just a month or so after announcing the formation of the team Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley and the rest of the KISS crew are trying to recruit one of the biggest names in football to be their starting quarterback…Tim Tebow!
Since being released by the Pats, Tebow has been approached by a few CFL teams, a rugby team and now KISS! No word yet on what the 26 year old NFL castoff will do but I would say most people are rooting for the kid! After all everyone loves to Tebow, right? Hello. Is thing thing on?

When is a concert is more than just entertainment?
I was going to write this post over a week ago. I actually started writing it too. Really, I did. Then something interesting happened. Last week I was on-the-air for Daryl, and when I came in after Kelli we started taking about this concert. I shot the show at The Greek, in LA, on Friday. She had seen it in Indio the night after I shot it. It seems I am not the only one that loved the show.
I have shot Heart 3 times now (The first two are here, and here), and this was the second time shooting JB’s LZE (the first is here). As I first started writing this, I started thinking… “You have posted these guys before, so why again? What makes this something that deserves another set of photos?” I had to sit on that for awhile. I knew I had an answer, but wasn’t sure what it was just yet. Then it hit me…
As Motley Crue get ready to kick into their 2nd residency at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino starting later this month, they’re also making plans for their final tour. Vince Neil tells Billboard Magazine that they’ll be calling it quits on the road in 2014 with a tour starting up in Spring. He says they plan on still making music together occasionally, but the it’ll be the end of any regular touring for the band. Listen for your chance to hit on of the Vegas shows in October, we’ve got a killer VIP package for you! It’s KCAL’s Lucky 7′s for Motley Crue in Vegas. Listen each weekday at 7am with STJ and again at 7pm with Patrick for your chance to score!
LA has a football team! Well kind of?
KISS announced last week that they would be launching their new arena football team beginning play in 2014! Home games will be at Honda Center in Anaheim only a stones throw away from the IE. Season tickets will be available for only $99 and all inaugural season seat holders will be invited to a free Kiss concert at Honda Center next year!
The group that owns Madison Square Garden in New York City has taken over the legendary Forum in Inglewood and they’re putting 100 million dollars into renovating it and returning it to glory. That includes painting it the original red once again. The former home of the Lakers and The Kings, site of countless concerts by all of the biggest artists in rock history. If you grew up in Southern California, you probably saw a bunch of shows there over the years. Can’t wait to catch a show there early next year, they’re opening up the new place with The Eagles in January! Now, if only we can get them to hang the retired Lakers jerseys up in the rafters again…click “Read More” for all the details

Last weekend, The Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival kicked off it’s 2013 season at the San Manuel Amphitheater – right here in San Bernardino. I had never been to a Mayhem Festival before, but I have wanted to shoot photos there for a long time. It lived up to the hype.
