Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, motorcycles, downhill skiing, fly fishing (poorly), dogs, and sushi.  That’s about it.  I get yelled at at least once a month to remove something from Twitter by my boss and I’m a huge soccer fan, even trying out for an MLS team one time.  I’ve never seen The Godfather.

Neil Peart

This claims to be the “isolated” drum tracks from 2112 but you can still hear the rest of the band so I think they’re just amplified.  Still, I’m hearing parts in the song I’ve never heard before. – Forrest

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

Sammy Hagar on DLC

Sammy is as honest as you can get.  I feel like there’s no agenda, no PR, no canned responses.  Just a guy that happens to also be a rock star. – Forrest

Rick Astley “Everlong”

It all started when The Foo Fighters joined Rick Astley on stage at a festival.

Holy $%&# is Rick good.  I knew he was a star but I had no idea that just him with an acoustic guitar would sound this good. – Forrest

The original Rage Against The Machine

I Won’t Do What You Tell Me!  Tom Petty rocks a Flying-V guitar with cowboy boots back in 1979 plus a hankerchief around his neck.  Is he a cowboy, is he a rock star?  He’s Tom Petty.  If I could own 1 classic guitar it would either be an acoustic owned by Hank Williams or Petty’s Flying V that sold for $44,000. Hear a 1980 Tom Petty concert on the radio this Saturday night. – Forrest

Me & my guitar

I love how he nevers takes himself too serious and it’s almost like Spinal Tap, poking fun at itself.  He’s also an amazing guitarist and big Mark Knopfler fan. – Forrest

Do a kickflip!

One regret I do have is I wish I had gotten more into skateboarding.  It’s like having long hair, in your 40’s is not the best time to start.  My neighbor built a halfpipe in his driveway and my son just got his 1st skateboard.

In high school woodshop I built a quarter pipe but never skated a half pipe. I knew some older kids that had a massive one near me and after churck I’d ask my parents to drive buy it, knowing there’s no way they’d be awake and skating that early on a Sunday.  I was wrong, there they were and my parents came to a full stop in the street…I was mortified.  They were these kids that knew about pot and smoked cigarettes and there I was coming home from church with my parents. Oh my God I wished I was 3 inches tall that day.  They waved and said, “Hey Forrest!”.  Even worse, they knew who I was.  I was too young, too square, and too bad of a skater to even hang out with them.  I had cheap boards from Sears and pads my parents made me wear, I still loved it though.  The complexity of tricks, the imagery, the stars, the video tape compliations, the gear. I never got good and it slowly faded away but it’s still cool to me.

This week walking around the neighborhood some kids were on a halfpipe they built in there driveway.  A chunky kid with his shirt off was skating it hard, and he was good. The self confidence he had while my young son stared made me smile. Maybe I should buy a board and teach my son to skate.  Why not?  I don’t have to be good, I just have to have fun. – Forrest

Trapt interview

The lead singer from Trapt has been the most exciting thing on Twitter during the quarantine.  Whether he’s fighting Ice-T, getting into a Twitter batte with Power Trip, being challenged by Danny Diablo from the NYHC scene or showing his support of Trump, the Trapt Twitter account has been quoted by Alternative Press, Revolver, Loudwire, Metal Injection and more just in 1 month.

AC/DC: A 5 Minute Drum & Guitar Chronology

Always suspicous of these “cover” videos where the actual song is played at the same time because it could just be lip syching with some video editing.  I do have to admit, the “Thunderstruck” does sound a bit off so maybe it is these 2 dudes playing.

This one is cool too. (Pay attention to the 1:33 mark) – Forrest

Decided to get some chicks to fill out my flock.

 

Got 2 Wyandotte’s & 2 Amber White’s.

I had 2 Ameraucana’s which were my favorite but the fox got those.  Now I just have 1 Rhode Island Red and 2 Barred Rock’s.

Since my chickens free range and get a ton of table scraps they prouced eggs all winter.  I hate seeing chickens in small penned in coop’s.  I even worked on a chicken farm once in a whle when I was a teenager.  You can just tell they’re happier with room to roam.  I am putting in a rather large garden so this fence is going up to just keep them out. $20 in pallets.

I also planted 2 peach trees and an apple tree this week which they are going to love this fall. – Forrest

Rock Stars Quarantined

Lock a rock star in a house with his guitars for 14 days and you’re going to get an album.  I think a year from now we’ll see an explosion of releases.  These are some of the ones I enjoy watching now. – Forrest
