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.
Super cool story but I am not comfortable with that 6 month old baby on a boat! They move so quick and figure out latches and gates faster than you think they will. I’m kind of glad my parents weren’t into anything extreme like ridiing bulls or hang gliding. Learn more about the couple here. – Forrest
I can’t believe these are real people, they’re so gross I thought it was a joke at first. The tight pants, the sunglasses inside, wearing a winter hat in Bel Air, the shirt open down to navel, 6 elevators while talking about waste, bragging about square footage, the stupid looking shoes, name dropping his divorce. I would be so disappointed if this was who I grew up to be. Imagine what you could have with $500,000,000. I’d rather have a couple of different cabins with land and a killer garage full of muscle cars and guitars. The artwork in this house is ugly. An Avengers poster would look better than that stupid wing sculpture. If you really wanted to change the world that doesn’t seem like a very good start. A wall of vintage playboys? So sleazy. I wouldn’t take this house if it was free, I’d rather keep living in my under 1k sq foot house in Boise. (The pods in the pool by the night club are kind of cool though)
Steve Shippy is a paranormal investigator and documentary filmmaker and is the host of the new documentary, “Shock Docs: Ed Gein – The Real Psycho” now streaming on Discovery+.

For the first time in history, cameras are allowed on the Gein property where the gruesome evidence was first discovered. Steve talks about what he discovers and shares stories from his connection to the rap world with Tech Nine, ICP and DMX. – Forrest

Michael talks about Jerry Garcia, Stephen Stills, Neil Young, being on Nixon’s Enemies List, getting booed off stage with Humble Pie and touring plans for the future. – Forrest
Guitar center hands Zakk Wylde a guitar, “Here’s an acousic guitar, not sure if you can play Hendrix on it though.” Zakk laughs in reverb. I wish I could go back in time & show this to Jimi 10 minutes after he wrote it, “Here’s a hairy biker dude that plays Black Sabbath you inspired, he might be drunk too”. – Forrest
Check these out, an AI program used data from other songs to write music for rock stars who died at the age of 27. The robot wrote the song then they got real singers to voice the lyrics. This story sounds like a bad idea but they really aren’t bad songs, I’d argue these are all better than WAP.
And this one I really like, The Doors! – Forrest
Guitar player Richie Kotzen from Poison, The Winery Dogs and Mr. Big calls in to talk about his new album with Adrian Smith from Iron Maiden. He talks about being an Iron Maiden fan, how he records multiple instruments when making a solo record, not playing with a pick and if he’s talked to the guys from Poison after getting kicked out. “Smith/Kotzen” is out now. – Forrest

This is cool to see all his gear and recording rooms. – Forrest
Saw this online today, not an endorment or product placment as I’ve never heard of this before but I dig the look. I think it’s $299 but it links to a Kickstarter page where it looks like you donate money to the company and get $100 off the speaker in return. I’m confused, if you can afford to sell it for $299 then why is is $399 retail? Are you taking a $100 hit or donation? The Kickstarter has raised $888,173 out of the $20k goal. Maybe this is like the Elon Musk deal with the flame thrower to test the waters and get enough month to produce the product – Forrest
Much like Van Halen I don’t think I fully appreciated STP until after they were gone which is sad, they had some really good songs. The only complaint I have is the lead singer totally looks like he’s lip-syncing because he totally is, I think footage of him in the studio not looking at the camera would of been better. It’s like watching someone sing in the mirror to themselves while trying to act cool.
Always loved their Zeppelin cover – Forrest
Mark Farner, formerly from Grand Funk Railroad, on Ted Nugent, Alice Cooper, Peter Frampton, his near death experience, stories about “American Band” and “I’m Your Captain”, his Native American heritage playing with Ringo Starr and more.

Went down a Nirvana rabbit hole, ended up at Post Malone’s Nirvana show again with Travis Barker from Blink-182 on drums. 1 year later and I’m still impressed. I wrote Posty off, mumble rapper with face tattoos? Pass. I was wrong, I judged a book by a cover and I was wrong. This guy has worked with Ozzy and covered Bob Dylan so I should of known better than to judge someone just because they are different than me. Not playing “Smells Like Teen Spirit” while wearing a dress is the most Nirvana thing ever. Kurt never cared about looking cool or playing his biggest hits. I think he would of liked the honest, raw, fun take on Nirvana songs, I did. – Forrest

I really like the band, “The Sword”. It’s sort of a Black Sabbath 70’s stoner sludge metal band. Their most recent album, “Used Future” was quite a different sound and I’m still trying to give it a chance. I got to see them in 2008 in a small bar with maybe 50 people, that’s a healthy estimate. A few weeks later they opened for Metallica’s “World Magnetic Tour” in 2008. Today they dropped this Tom Petty cover & I’m sort of blown away, it’s a great cover and I never would of picked them to play a Tom Petty tune but I guess everyone can appreciate his music. – Forrest
They also threw down this sick Rush cover.
& ZZ Top! My love for The Sword has been reinstated! – Forrest
Ric Lee is the drummer from Ten Years After with a new book out now, “From Headstocks to Woodstock: A Drummer’s Tale“.

Here’s my interview with guitarist Rick Robinson
And with drummer Steve Gorman – Forrest
There has been fan made videos before of the muppets playing rock songs by bands like Guns N’ Roses and Animal jammed with Dave Grohl before but I’d never seen them take on a full song. Smart way to not have kids saying “Put a gun against his head” by having Animal just repeat “Mama” – Forrest
