I answer to my middle name. I love peanut butter. So does my oldest and my youngest boys. My middle boy hates peanut butter. My oldest, who’s a girl, could take it or leave it. How many kids do I have? That’s important because I talk about them a lot on my show…weekdays from 3pm-6pm on The Rock. Sometimes Doug joins me. He’s not my kid but he acts like it sometimes. We like to wax poetic about football, growing up in the 80s and Rock and Roll. If you call the show we may put you on the air. We may not…it depends on our mood. I play guitar. I’m addicted to caffeine and I have a myriad of useless rock and roll trivia stashed in my noggin’! Go ahead, test me. Not to ruin any street cred but I even like a little country music. Don’t be hatin’. I like long walks on the beach but if you try to take me on the wrong day, I may cut you. God, Family, Country and Rock and Roll. Raise yo fists!
Need a Cool Name for Your Band? Try This!
If you've ever been in a band you know that image is a big part of success. Getting the core members, picking or writing the songs, and rehearsals pale in comparison to having a great name that fits. You don't want to just settle for something that's simply adequate.
When Binary Code Goes All ‘Metal’ on You [VIDEO]
This one is for all of you computer programmers out there. All of those "1's and 0's" have to get old every once in a while. What if you could make your binary conversation rock hard?
Sabbath’s ‘War Pigs’ with Brass [VIDEO]
I love going to see live bands, especially when they offer something different than the same old-same old. It's hard to be a cover band in a rural area because there are a lot of different tastes to take into consideration so musicians often end up playing songs that have a proven track record just to keep people happy.
High School Kid Plays ‘Cliffs of Dover’ [VIDEO]
I started playing guitar in high school. I really only learned enough so I could write songs. I always wanted to play like Eddie Van Halen or Joe Satriani or Eric Johnson, but I was okay with the fact that it would probably never happen. The kid in this video will be turning away dates to the prom, that's for sure.
United Vets Bring Smiles to County Kids
The United Vets Teddy Bear Run made its way from Houlton to Presque Isle over the weekend, bringing joy to County kids and leaving smiles along the way.
Nic Cage’s Failed Superman Flick Gets a Trailer [VIDEO]
Remember when Nicolas Cage was set to play Superman? No? Well, take my word for it, he was. Funny man Kevin Smith was involved too. The movie didn't happen, or should I say, 'hasn't happened yet.' There is still hope.
School Kids Cover Tool [VIDEO]
I was in a band in high school. We were not good. Not good at all. I'm still in a band and we're 'the okayest band in the world.' I wish there was a music school around when I was a kid because I think I'd be a lot better than I am today. The kids in this video are unreal.
How Would You React to a Crazy Guitar Guy on a Train? [VIDEO]
I keep watching this video and thinking about how I would react if I was on the same train as this guy. I suppose, he's not hurting anyone and it's obviously some sort of joke or prank, so maybe I would mind my own business and laugh it off.
Band Profile: ‘The Dead Daisies’ [VIDEO]
So Lynyrd Skynyrd and Bad Company kicked off their tour in Bangor on July 10th. We got some glowing reports about the show. The opening band in particular left a huge impression.
Amazing Percussionist in LIVE Theatre Show [VIDEO]
If you're like me, you thought that when you went to the theatre to see a live show that the music was piped in via a CD or something. I think it probably happens now and then but not with the Stratford Festival and a performance of 'Crazy for You.'
