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.

Rock Stars & Their Kids

I’ve always wondered if you grew up with famous musician parents would you end up playing music?  Looks like yes. – Forrest

Duff McKagan

I’ve listened to Duff talk on a lot of different interviews and podcasts but this is the 1st time I’ve heard him tell this story and you can just hear him go back in his mind. – 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.

I never knew Louise Post from Veruca Salt was on Everlong (16:31) – Forrest

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.

A post shared by Forrest (@radioforrest) on

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

Led Zeppelin live

The band says this will only be up for a limited time, Led Zeppelin’s London O2 peformance in 2007.  I was one of the over 20 million that entered the lottery to buy tickets but no luck for me.  If you want a digital copy of this album just Tweet me here or message me on Instagram here and I’ll hook you up. – Forrest
