Culture Club’s new single “More than Silence”, pub-2427795083793513, DIRECT, f08c47fec0942fa0

Boy George’s vocals have aged like a fine wine. The songs are far deeper and more meaningful than the stuff released back in the day…


And a personal favorite of mine of Boy George!!

King of Everything…

Robert Plant, a change of heart?, pub-2427795083793513, DIRECT, f08c47fec0942fa0

Robert Plant hints he’d be open to a Led Zeppelin reunion

Led Zeppelin in 1973.

After their tantalizing one-off gig in 2007, Robert Plant has hinted that he’s open to a Led Zeppelin reunion next year. Speaking to Australia’s version of 60 Minutes,” the singer deflected the notion that he’s the reason for Zeppelin’s dormancy.

“[Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones] are Capricorns. They don’t say a word. They’re quite contained in their own worlds and they leave it to me,” said Plant. “I’m not the bad guy . . . You need to see the Capricorns – I’ve got nothing to do in 2014.”

My review of Peter Criss’s book “Makeup to Breakup: My Life In and Out of Kiss, pub-2427795083793513, DIRECT, f08c47fec0942fa0

In a short sentence I would have to think Peter thought to himself and said “Everyone under the bus!”. Meaning he threw everyone under the bus. I think every bridge he could burn he burnt in this book. Is it a bad thing? I dunno, not my call or my friends that got tossed under the bus.

So far I have read all three books from the Kiss Klan that has released one. Seems to be a bit of dogging on each other in all the books but it seems Peter is the most honest and as far as I can tell, holds nothing back, including grudges.

But now it’s Paul’s turn to release one 🙂 I still think they should have released them all with the “solo” album covers!

I highly recommend this book. It’s definitely drugs,sex, drugs, sex, drugs, sex, and rock and roll.

Here are some of the Highlights according to Peter.


Tommy Thayer made $25,000 a night during the reunion tour and Peter was paid $10,000. (page 193)

It’s implied several times in the book that Paul Stanley bats for both teams if you know what I mean. (page 50 for one)

Gene Simmons has Herpes and had a serious outbreak and Doc Mcgee had to buy Shannon Tweed a big stone to help her get over it. (page 169)

Peter had a lot of orgies with Ace.  Sweet sweet Connie and Ace both uh “sung into Peter’s mic”  at the same time. (page 76)

About the only complaint I have about the book is it’s a little slow taking off and the photographs at the end are lame. Other than that it’s a must read for rock fans. It shows the unglamorous life of a rock star. From their humble beginnings to the top of the world and the fall back down and the eventual leveling out of everything if they live long enough.

Led Zeppelin’s 2007 Live From The O2 Arena “Kasmir”, pub-2427795083793513, DIRECT, f08c47fec0942fa0

Here is Kasmir. Sounds killer. My only question or questions is that it took five years to mix the concert down and get this product ready so “Oh it makes me wonder” if the whole concert was redone in the studio and fixed like most bands do. KISS ALIVE II is supposed to be the best live “Studio” album out there….The guitars sound to perfect including the Wah pedal during the main riff and the vocals all sound a little pitch corrected…But what do I know? It was an iconic concert so be sure and go out and purchase it regardless if it was studio fixed.
