I went to see Helmet last Saturday and they rocked. Â The only thing that sucked is they did not play my favorite song Unsung. Â Have you ever been to a show where they didn’t play your favorite?
It started out as a discussion on Stu, Tiffany, and Jimbo about what constitutes “good cleavage”, and now it has turned into a contest with a $1000 grand prize!

Before the show tonight I was searching the web, pretending to work, when I came across something very interesting! Apparently [...]
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.

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

Sammy Hagar returned to his hometown of Fontana recently to be honored by the city as part of their 100th anniversary celebration. In addition to serving as the Honorary Grand Marshalof the 2013 Fontana Days Parade, the town presented the Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“Red RockerĂ˘â‚¬Âť with a sign for Hagar Way, a new street dedicated to their hometown hero.
After leading the parade on a float with his family by his side, Sammy was given the street sign that read Ă˘â‚¬ËśHagar Way.Ă˘â‚¬â„˘ Although no mention of a speed limit was made, judging by the namesake we can only assume that speeds in excess of 55 are highly encouraged, although perhaps not legal.
Hagar seemed genuinely touched by the gesture. After being given the sign he addressed the crowd, saying, Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“Something about in your hometown having a street named after you, that warms my heart. This is awesome. This is one of the favorite things that has been done for me in my whole career.Ă˘â‚¬Âť He also threw some love out to his brother, joking, Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“Only problem is I know my brotherĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s going to go around saying itĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s his name too.Ă˘â‚¬Âť
During the celebration Hagar was asked by the Fontana Herald how it felt to be a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame to which the thankful Hagar replied, Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“ItĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s not as exciting as being the grand marshal of Fontana Days for the 100th anniversary of Fontana, my hometown!Ă˘â‚¬Âť
On the musical front, Sammy will also be heading out on his Ă˘â‚¬ËśFour Decades of RockĂ˘â‚¬â„˘ tour kicking off at the beginning of June and dates through early September. No So Cal dates yet, but we’ll let you know as soon as we do!
