Cranberries Singer Covers Fleetwood Mac

Wow, just 1 guitar and a singer and it’s so good.  Makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up.  Sometimes you see someone live and you realize, oh yeah, that’s why you’re famous.  Sadly Dolores passed away in 2018 – Forrest

Dexter returns this fall

Sometime around 2010 I thinik I was going through a pretty tough time with insomnia and even tried melatonin but nothing was working.  I’d stay up to like 3 or 4 in the morning unable to sleep every night.  Eventually I’d give up laying in bed and I’d flip through the TV for a few hours and Showtime was offering all the seasons of Dexter on demand for free.  I gave it a chance and -bam- hooked.  I was already a few seasons behind but caught up soon enough.  Next to “Lost” though I think it’s one of the worst endings of a TV series but now it’s coming back for a 10-episode series this fall.  I’m in. – Forrest



Steve Crooper interview

I’ve been everywhere man

Made famous by Johnn Cash, check this cover of “I’ve Been Everywhere” by the L.A. Rats which is just sort of just Rob Zombie with a different bassist, Nikki Sixx from Mötley Crüe. – Forrest


Wait, Big Black died?

I never got into “Ridiculousness” because I can’t watch people bailing on skateboards and breaking legs but I always liked “Rob & Big Black” and “Fantasy Factory”.  I sort of stopped paying attention but Big Black died in 2017!?  I had no idea. – Forrest


A freaking baby!!

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


These 2 douches

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

Steve Shippy (paranormal expert)

Cindy Kaza and Steve Shippy investigate.

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+. The iconic psychopaths featured in the blockbuster movies “Silence of the Lambs,” “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” and “Psycho” were not just fictitious villains, they were inspired by a real-life personification of evil – Ed Gein. 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

What! How?

9 year old Nadi Bushell first came to fame for her Dave Grohl challenge.

Now she’s done a full cover of The Pixies “Where Is My Mind” which plays at the end of Fight Club.

Do you think there is any editing on this?  It’s amazing! – Forrest


RIP Prince

Prince died on this day in 2016.  Here’s a great Prince story from Kevin Smith. – Forrest

Check out this Hendrix Cover

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

Lost Tape

AI program writes songs for The Doors & Nirvana

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.

Jimi Hendrix


And this one I really like, The Doors! – Forrest


Anthrax + Testament = Rush

The 4 founders of Thrash Metal: Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer & Anthrax.  Sometimes a 4th band is mentioned, Testament.  Check members of Anthrax and Testament covering Rush and nailing it! – Forrest


The Muppets Rock

The fan made ones are fun, not that well done but when videos first started to go viral these were huge.  There used to be a “Mr. Brownstone” one floating around I can’t find anymore but I did find these two.

The offical video is much better – Forrest


Steve Albini’s “junk”

Steve Albini is a producer famous for the album “In Utero” by Nirvana, “Razorblade Suitcase” by Bush, “Point #1” by Chevelle, “In Color” by Cheap Trick (1998 version), “The Weirdness” by Iggy & The Stooges and “Walking into Clarksdale” by Jimmy Page and Robert Plant. This is cool to see all his gear and recording rooms. – Forrest


Retro Tube Radio

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



Shavo Odadjian & Friends – Dead and Bloated (Stone Temple Pilots Cover | 2021)

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


John 5 Plays Hello Kitty Guitar

Current Rob Zombie and former Marilyn Manson/David Lee Roth guitarist John 5 grew up watching Hee Haw so he can finger pick better than anyone I’ve ever seen. – Forrest
