Can't Afford to go to No Concerts!
Van Halen tickets: $165 (top ticket price) Roger Waters (top priced) tickets-$215 (!) Roch. Int'l Jazz Fest Headliner shows-$85 & up...
Is there a recession still goin' on? Are people still struggling to pay for necessities and gas and food and stuff? You'd never think that by these outrageous ticket prices...Years ago, I used to be able to snag free tix (a benefit of the job...) but these days, I have to buy concert tickets like everyone else, or I should say, NOT buy them because, I can't rationalize spending that kind of money for a concert.  None of these performers are hurting for cash, but many of the people who might like to see these shows are excluded because of the exhorbitant prices being asked.

Thoughts on the State of The Union Address
Coupla observations about things while I was checking out the hall audience during the Prez's speech on 1/24:
1) Our country is being run by wealthy, old men and (some) women. Not old like in their 60's, but ancient, in their 70's & beyond. Great. No wonder things in the U.S. are so F'd up...out of touch people with no clue who go to bed too early to keep up with anything pertinent.

The "divide" between the two major parties (Dems & GOP) was on full display (not that it needed to be). In my opinion, there are too many standing ovations, but one side of the audience, with few exceptions, sat during every ovation for the President. Like they had a stick up their asses and were glued to their seats. They wouldn't have gotten up to show any kind of respect if their pants were on fire.

New Van Halen!
"Tattoo" is the new Van Halen song.  I Like it! It F**kin' Rocks! That's a good thing...I wasn't hoping for any ballads. :D
Unlike the 2 songs that were recorded for the "Best of VH" album in 1996, there'll be an entire album of new VH music coming on February 7th. ("A Different Kind of Truth") I think that this will be a much more concentrated & concerted effort than the seemingly slap-dash inclusion of the 2 new songs from the "Best OF" CD. 
VH has also got a date in Buffalo (First Niagara Center) on March 9th.  Tickets (IMHO) are a bit "pricey," but what isn't these days? And we're talking 'bout 100%, Genuine, Original, Volume-Goes-To-11, VAN HALEN!  If ya wanna get a cool preview of what the boys will sound like, you can check the videos that have been made available form their January 5 show @ the Cafe Wha? show in NYC.  WCMF will be playing the new song, and more from the new disc when we get it. Not to state the obvious, but you know that WCMF is gonna be the only radio station in Rochester who will play this!!  Very Cool.

CLASSIC ROCK Lives in 2K12!

Well, Happy New Year to You’s!  For Classic Rock fans, it’s already shaping up to be a helluva year, proving once again that Classic Rock Will Never Die! 

Sadly however, we do observe and pay tribute to the artists and musicians who will no longer play their music, but left plenty of it behind to carry on their legacy.

In the Classic Rock realm this past year, we lost guitarist Gary Moore (Thin Lizzy, Solo Artist), Clarence Clemons (E Street Band), Gerry Rafferty (Stealer’s Wheel), and Jani Lane (Warrant) among others. 

 However…There’s a mind-boggling list of heritage, classic artists that have big plans for 2K12:  VAN HALEN!-New song this month, New album in February, GIGANTIC tour to follow! AEROSMITH!-New album of all-new recordings (their 1st since 2001) and tour to follow…BLACK FREAKIN’ SABBATH!!!-Ozzy, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler, & Bill Ward getting’ it back together for a new album and worldwide tour. THE ROLLING STONES!-This year marks the Stones’ 50th Anniversary!   WHAAAT????!!!!  There's word that former members Bill Wyman & Mick Taylor will possibly be participating for some shows…

 Let’s Rhaaahhk!
