Monday – Friday 2:00 pm – 7:00 PM
Saturday – Sunday 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM

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.


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


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


Steve Gorman Video Chat

I recently hosted a video chat with Steve Gorman from The Black Crowes and April Rose with some 96.9 The Eagle listeners. – 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


Rik Emmett from Triumph

Rik Emmett is a singer, songwriter and guitar player from Triumph. Rik’s 11 solo albums are now available digitally along with a new solo release, “Folk Songs For The Farewell Bonfire”. Rik chats about working with the engineer from “Appetite For Destruction” by Guns N’ Roses and “Rust In Peace” by Megadeth, writing “Lay It On The Line”, his friendship with Alex Lifeson from Rush, and the documentary in the works. –  Forrest

Gibson Icons

It’s like a Podcast without a host.  Tony Iommi from Black Sabbath telling his story. – 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


What I’m listening to this week

This week I’ve been listening to nothing but these 5 album, 4 were just released Friday. If you have an album recommendation or want a copy of the CCR let me know on Twitter or Instagram. – 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
