Yahoo News posts that Van Halen is embarking on a huge tour this year and they use Sammy Hagar’s photograph on the article! Sammy hasn’t been in the band for 15 years! Come on YAHOO News, who does your music columns, clueless kids? I screenshot it since someone will get the hint after reading all the comments about the photograph so here it is! You can hear the Van Halen brothers kicking car tires over this slip up! “Humans Being”.

Dear Friends and Partners,

car_nRight now I am facing the biggest challenge of my life. On Valentines day I was diagnosed with incurable Multiple Myeloma Cancer and given a 3-5 year window of time. In order to put this into remission and be ready for my Spring 2014 tour I must go into chemotherapy right away. I will be under 24/7 medical care for the next 9 months straight.

I’m determined to beat this and see you in concert. In 1976 I went to a Christian concert and heard the gospel set to music and received Christ. Since that time I’ve lead over 1 million people to Christ. Touring is expensive and necessary to bring the gospel where it’s needed the most. I believe there are other Carman’s out there waiting to find Jesus and use their talents for the lord. Maybe its your child, your friend, or maybe even you. With a successful fundraiser we will be coming and lives will be changed for sure.

Over the past 13 years, I recorded many “unreleased” songs. I’m now making those available alongside classic favorites. Plus all the Music and DVD’s will be available for download the moment you purchase them NO WAITING 4-6 WEEKS FOR THE MAIL ANYMORE.

You will have this music and these videos tonight to enjoy. Check out the giving levels below and the samples of the songs too. This will be a tour that will change lives just like this whole experience is changing mine. I’m passing on the blessing.

And in the meantime For 9 months from September to April I’ll be off the road in the fight of my life battling cancer. I’ve pre-recorded weekly video updates on the new CD but will be posting written updates as I’m able. Join me in this 9 month countdown to beat this dreaded disease with daily inspirational words from songs I have written posted on Facebook.

I’ve never needed your support more than I do now. Join the campaign as I’m believing God that at the end of this impossible journey I will stand on 100 stages starting this April and once again be “LIVE Across America!”

Your Friend and Brother,

Wow. Any KISS geek needs to watch this. Never before seen fotos and finding out Ace Frehley may not be a slob but has no organizational skills at all. This guy talks about going through his storage locker and describing what he found! It’s rich in KISS history….

Slayer makes Yahoo news..like

Anyone that reads Yahoo knows who Slayer is…

That’s a not a dig at Slayer. Anyone that listens to good music should know and “fear’ Slayer (joking). If you don’t have Slayer’s “South of Heaven” in your MP3 collection, well, you need to. Or I guess you may be swinging from Justin Bieber’s ball sac if you don’t…I mean didn’t you ever win a Slayer mirror at the Fair???

Anyway, not where I am headed.

Seems there is a money issue in Slayer’s camp and when Drummer Dave Lombardo brought it up  he was replaced.

Dave Said…

“Last year, I discovered 90% of Slayer’s tour income was being deducted as expenses, including the professional fees paid to management, costing the band millions of dollars and leaving 10% or less to split amongst the four of us,”

My review of Kiss’s new album “MONSTER”

Posted onOctober 5, 2012
google.com, pub-2427795083793513, DIRECT, f08c47fec0942fa0

So there is a leaked copy of it floating around the net, so I checked it out…

First off. I am a huge KISS fan from way back when they ruled the world. I stuck with them from ALIVE 1and through the disco era “Dynasty” which I thought was a great album by the way. I even forgave them for the “Unmasked” album which did have a couple of good songs on it. One being “A world without Heroes”. I even stuck by them and watched them “unmask” on MTV like millions of other people did. I was in there when Peter quit/got canned and I continued going to see them despite Eric Carr (GOD rest his soul) playing wayyyy to fast on the drums. I was at the show in Evansville Indiana when Vinnie ( plays too fast too) Vincent pushed his amps over and KISS left his ass in parking lot and moved on after the show. I hung in there. I was still there when Grudge took over and songs like “Unholy” was blasting on the radio. Great stuff. Then came the farewell tour. I was still there. I remember Julio Wallace and me driving all night back from a gig in Michigan just to get to Evansville the next day to catch the show.

Then came the extended farewell tour. And another tour. Hell, I even bought the new KISS comics. Then came Psycho Circus”. I even got that. Then Peter and Ace quit/got canned. I get all that. That’s business. I didn’t like it but its not my business.  And then my hope and loyalty started waning…But I still went and saw the show.

Then came KISS “Boom”. more like a fizzle…. Not the band I grew up basically worshiping. More tours, more merchandise, etc. I get it but I no longer subscribe to it. Maybe I am growing up. I wish I wasn’t. I mean this is the band I would have, like most kids my age back in the late 70’s. would have helped KISS invade a small Country if they asked us to.

And now “MONSTER”. The hype machine is in full swing. “It’s a classic KISS album”. “Just four guys writing together”. etc, etc, etc…

So I checked out the leaked copy. You know what? MONSTER should have been called MONSTER LAME”. The song “Hell or Hallelujah”. That’s a great song. Reminds me of the KISS I grew up with. But after that the album just loses steam, tanks and falls over dead. I hear a bunch of fillers and songs they will never play again.

Maybe its time bands just released powerful singles one at time. The old album way of doing things is over. I am sad about it. But the songs just don’t hold up. No hits…

I don’t expect KISS to reinvent the wheel. I know they are no longer starving and it shows. A band that is starving has the “Us against the world attitude”. KISS doesn’t has that. They haven’t had it for a long time. It’s not their fault. They have been mega successful. But I think its time to hand the      baton off to someone else as bad as I hate to say that. I will go ahead and say Motley Crue needs to do the same thing but that’s another story.

So to finish off my review. KISS meant everything music to me. This album doesn’t cut it. Save your money or do something good with it. Maybe send it to “Wounded Warriors” in honor of KISS. KISS Supports that group and I commend them on that.

tears are falling…

I miss my KISS…

sincerely,

chuck
