Here comes Santa Claus…

It looks like 2019 is shaping up to be a great year for new music, for sure! Well, at least we’re anticipating that the actual music will be “good”, but the number of BIG name artists and bands that are planning new music/albums continues to grow! Some, I’m not so thrilled about…Joe Jackson, Bryan Adams, Ozzy and even Bruce Springsteen, not ones I’ll be anxious to check out, but others like Sammy Hagar, Motley Crue, Heart, and Whitesnake, are definitely ones that have my interest! Then there’s the speculation about some type of new Guns N’ Roses album…they recorded the show at Dodgers Stadium in 2016, so that could lead to a “Live” album from the “Not In This Lifetime” tour. And Axl apparently worked on writing some new material over the course of that tour. Then there’s the buzz about Ac/Dc, after a few different photos showed drummer Phil Rudd and Brian Johnson outside the Vancouver recording studio where the band has recorded in the past. And not long after, another photo showed Angus and Stevie Young in the same spot. Mum is the word from the Ac/Dc camp, but I’d be really surprised if we don’t get some new music from the band, at least sometime in 2019! Probably the one album (of those we know are coming) I’m looking forward to the most is from Sammy Hagar and The Circle, the band with Sammy, Michael Anthony, Vic Johnson and Jason Bonham. Sammy recently confirming the new album “Space Between” is in the making, and he has high hopes, stating he’d like to win a Grammy…that’s confidence for sure. Space Between could be out as early as January. In the meantime, enjoy this rocker¬† with Sammy, Michael Anthony, and none other than Motley Crue’s Tommy Lee, from a past episode of Sammy’s “Rock and Roll Road Trip” show on AXS Tv.¬† ~ Ron



Paul McCarteny & Dave Grohl

Paul McCarteny & Dave Grohl

I expected to see Grohl playing the drums and Paul on bass but nope, totally forgot those 2 had both recording entire albums by themselves. Pretty sure I save Dave Matthews in there too – Forrest
