We love seeing the next generation of Rockers crank it up at the Maine Academy of Modern Music. If you've ever caught one of these young bands play out you'll hear them play everything from The Doors to Green Day plus their own original songs...
Get ready to walk or rock in Madawaska!
It’s 10th anniversary Tribute to Courage Walk or Rock in Madawaska on Saturday, May 9th, 2015, at the Acadia Health Center on Main Street. You can walk 3, 5, or 10 miles.
I have 5 children. When I tell someone that I usually get the exasperated response, 'FIVE? Holy cow....do you sleep? How do you do it? Five. Wow. More power to you, 'cause I have my hands full with two.' The response varies, but it's usually something like that. In order, the answers are 'Yes,' 'barely,' 'I just do,' 'Thanks.'
So a buddy of mine got a Ukulele for his birthday. Another friend got one for his kid as a graduation present. It's like when you buy a car that you hardly see anyone driving in your hometown, but as soon as you sign the papers you see the same car everywhere. Ukulele's are invading the Earth.
I don't know about you but I'm chomping at the bit to watch the induction ceremonies for this year's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Not because I'm a fan of the Hall (I'm not) but because it tends to bring out some amazing performances you may not catch anywhere else. I just wish I had the Benjamins to afford HBO.
Although I spent a bit of time defending Nickelback, even though I'm not really a huge fan, I'm not surprised that they made this list. We asked who you thought fit into the 'overrated' category among rock artists. As I suspected, the answers varied widely. Here's a sampling of who you thought were overrated rock artists.
Every once in a while you'll hear Doug and I go 'Nickelback-bashing.' I can't speak for Doug but I have turned a corner on that band. While I think for a while there was a ton of overexposure, I saw them play live and they're intense, very talented, and rockin'. Overrated? I can't say they are because most people that I know hate them.
