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.

Albert Bouchard from Blue Öyster Cult

Albert Bouchard is a founding member and former drummer from Blue Öyster Cult with the new abum “Re Imaginos” out now. He talks about how the new album is an old album, working with Robbier Krieger from The Doors, the story behind the infamous cowbell on “Don’t Fear The Reaper”, if he talks to the current members of Blue Öyster Cult and if he cares that they are not in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. www.albertbouchard.netForrest

Utah animal overpass

Utah installed an animal overpass near Salt Lake City that is 350′ long and 50′ wide that allows animals to cross overtop the highway.  It cost $5 million but I think it’s worth every penny and I wish the we had more of these. – Forrest

Alice in Chains singer covers Soundgarden

I’ll admit, it’s weird watching a video that they’re passing off as a cover when clearly they are just miming it like a true music video.  I mean, the Mastodon guy’s guitar isn’t even plugged in, it’s like all those videos of guitarists and drummers covering a song when you heard other instruments on the track so clearly it’s pre-recorded and produced.

That aside, I love seeing famous musicians cover other bands. – Forrest

Stardust

Not sure about this one, 1 I’m not a huge Mark Maron fan and also Bowie’s son was against the film.  Plus, this guy looks and sounds nothing like David Bowie from the trailer.

This is the Bowie I want to see – Forrest

Unrelased Tom Petty Song

Tom Petty had turned in 25 songs for the “Wildflowers” album but the record label had him whittle it down to 1 album.  Those extra songs are coming out October 16th with the “Wildflowers & All The Rest” – 15 songs from Wildflowers & 10 songs that were left off the original release. – Forrest

New AC/DC video

New album PWR/UP is out November 13th. I love how it sounds like classic AC/DC yet a little updated .  It sounds older and better than “Play Ball” from “Rock Or Bust” in 2014 so I’m really looking forward to the new release. Check out the powerbolt inlays on Angus’ SG – Forrest

Behind the scenes of Jerry Cantrell’s birthday party

1st thing, what kind of dude gets invited to a rock stars birthday and then takes video and puts it on Youtube.  Total douche move.  If he knew Jerry Cantrell so well he wouldn’t get a picture with him.  Ugg.  This dude is throwing gang signs while singing to his phone.  It’s so cringeworthy I can hardly watch.  He also keeps checking out girls’ butts when they aren’t looking.  What a creepo.

Yet, he’s hanging at Jerry Cantrell’s house and I’m not so maybe I’m just jealous.  I think this dude is a real estate agent and claimed to be a 1 time manager for Scott Weiland (Stone Temple Pilots) so maybe he sold Jerry his home.  He tells more of his story here.

I actually met Jerry once, he did a record siging at a local record store on the East Coast when his solo album “Degradation Trip” came out in 2002.  He was quiet, shook my hand & smelled like beer.  It was midnight.  I was kind of dissapointed then thought, “Who the f am I?  This guy probably did heroin with Kurt Cobain and I’m going to judge him for having a beer at midnight?  I got over it.

2nd thing is all the cameos including Eddie Van Halen’s guitar that was personally given to Jerry. (see around 38:00 in this video for the story)  I spotted Jeff Garlin (Curb Your Enthusiasm), Kato Kaelon, Mark Boone Junior (Sons of Anarchy), Jim Jefferies (comedian), Duff McKagan (Guns N’ Roses bassist), Glen Danzig, Rob Trujillo (Metallica bassist), Sean Kinney (Alice in Chains drummer), Lzzy Hale (Halestorm, I think it’s her but not 100% sure), Robbie Krieger (The Doors guitarist), and Gilby Clark (Guns N’ Roses guitarist).  Forrest

Rick Rubin on Tom Petty

So cool to hear Rick Rubin talk about Tom Petty, even admitting he wasn’t a fan at first because he liked harder rock and punk. The interview takes place at the famous Sangri-La Studios (The Band, Bob Dylan, Black Sabbath, ZZ Top, Neil Young) in CA. Rick produced the “Wildflowers” album. – Forrest

New trailer for “The Batman”

You know what?  I’ve liked all the Batman, (Batmen?) some more than others but I enjoy parts of each including Lego Batman.  Sparkle Vampire as Batman?  I won’t judge until I see the movie. – Forrest

Slash, Robin Zander & Lzzy Hale

The Beatles and AC/DC.  It’s kind of awesome that as rock fans we can all be connected, everyone loves these songs, even Slash owns the same records as me and that kind of blows my mind. I want a music room like Lzzy’s – Forrest

My new favorite web series

I’d seen something similar to this with Pink Floyd, Queen and Nirvana albums before but I stumbled onto this one and I’ve never heard Blue Oyster Cult like this before.
