Christian rock/metal songs about rock music?
We all know of really great songs about Rock/metal music by non-Christian bands such as, for example, Judas Priest's Heavy Metal, Manowar's Kings Of Metal and Def Leppard's Rock Of Ages.

Does anyone know of any songs about rock/metal by Christian rock/metal bands?

Van Halen at Madison Square Garden
Hey everybody!

The folks over at AlmacksDanceHall.com went to the Van Halen show
on May 23rd at Madison Square Garden. There is a hilarious review
of it up on the site. Here's a little taste of it:

"For me, the original Van Halen is one of few bands that actually have
both amazing showmanship AND solid musicianship to back it up. David
Lee Roth is the ultimate entertainer and has an immeasurable amount of
charisma and energy, even now. He emerged on stage wearing a circus
ringmaster jacket and for a fleeting moment I thought I was accidentally
at the comeback performance of Ziegfried and Roy. But Diamond Dave was at
his best– beaming personality, physically fit, and acting like a surprisingly
appropriate version of himself from days ago. He channeled his old persona,
but thankfully he recognized no one wanted to see a 50 year old humping an
inflated microphone in a spandex number. Me especially. His vocals and moves
are completely intact, and he delivered all the sass and sleaze we have come
to associate with his over the top performances. A high point for me was
when Roth referred to having sex as “getting leg.” Guess what? I’m officially
stealing that phrase and using it from this point forward."

Read the rest of it here!

Have a great day!

Sylver and Tammy
Color pix of Sylver Blackwolfe, the 7 foot tall one armed drummer for the rock/hard/rock/metal band Wild Animals and Tammy Huskey, the rhythm guitarist for the same band

The look for both was inspired by the look that hair metal band Stryper had in the 80's

The Crimson Idol Tour
On February 17th I had the pleasure of seeing W.A.S.P. for a second time. Me & Anthony traveled all the way to Hartford, CT to see this show. I really driving from to and back because it's such a long ass drive and we always seem to get lost trying to come. I'm starting to know why W.A.S.P. never tours in Massachusetts. Also every time they tour in the United States they also have shitty supporting bands with them to start off the show. It was just really terrible and I can't believe how ungrateful W.A.S.P. is of there fans. I find it funny how they come from the United States and can't sell out venues here but when they tour over seas they sell out. I will never figure out why that happens. It's weird how United States bands sell out over seas but never in there own country. The show was supposed to start around around 6:30 but it didn't. They had bands playing on the underground stage but not on the main stage. I was very furious it wasn't even funny. Here are the bands that I saw.

Perish Hill: This was a pretty good underground band that isn't signed. I was really
getting into their music. I really liked their song called "Viking Horde". Now that is a good tune. If you wanna check them out, here is the link to their myspace page http://www.myspace.com/perishhill

Kill Your Demons: Now this band was pretty good as well for not being a signed band. They are crossed between Cannibal Corpse and Six Feet Under. Other people might say that they sound like Napalm Death but I think they sound more like Cannibal Corpse & Six Feet Under. I really enjoyed their music a lot and got a free demo of their stuff. If you wanna check them out, here is the link to their myspace page

I don't remember the rest of the bands that played on this stage.

Liquid Violence: This band sucked, enough said. The music sounded like shit and they think that punk music is alive and well when in reality it's dead and buried. The only punk music that is around if that pop punk stuff and that screamo punk stuff. This band did a very bad attempt at thrash/punk. Liquid Violence was just awful and I don't recommend them at all. That's how bad they were. Stay away from this band because it's like hearing nails on a chalkboard.

Fatal Smile: This band was just as bad as Liquid Violence but maybe just a little better. The bassist was a cheap Nikki Sixx rip-off. The bassist also looked like a cheap rip-off of Tommy Lee. Fatal Smile is stuck in the whole 80's glam metal scene when in reality this scene is dead buried and never to return. They didn't impress me at all and I was bored with there performance. Fatal Smile didn't get off the stage until around 10:30. It just took forever for this band to play. I don't recommend either, thats how bad they were. Stay away from this band because they sound like every other 80s glam metal band.

W.A.S.P.: They took forever to play their set. Blackie Lawless could give 2 fucks about his fans. That bastard made us wait until 11:00 to here is fucking music. I was fucking pissed because I was tired and I just wanted to get home. When he came out, I give him 2 middle fingers to show him how I felt. WASP played the whole Crimson Idol album which is one of my favorite albums by them. I don't think anyone in the audience gave a piss about them playing. I was in the very front and not once person was moving to the music nor was anyone head banging to the music. Now these people at this show were older than me and know about WASP than me and yet they didn't show it that night. I was very happy that they played the Crimson Idol in order. That's the best part and I also saw the video story of Johnathan. I totally recommend this album because it's good from start to finish. Go out and get it now because you won't be disappointed. Once they finished the Crimson Idol album, they took a short break. WASP was nice enough to put on Popeye the cartoon. They came back out and played Love Machine & Blind In Texas and that was the end of the show. WASP didn't end their set until 12:30 am. It was a very long evening and I hope I never have to do it again.

Commented Steev: "This video has taken us forever and a day for us to get it together. Thanks to our European label, we were able to get everything on track and get Noah Shulman to do all final edits and basically save it. We're stoked with the way it turned out."

This is one of the most underrated albums of the late '80s. The first Badlands album with Ray Gillen who was in Black Sabbath prior, Jake E Lee who played with Ozzy, Eric Singer who played with Kiss and Alice Cooper since, and Greg Chassion. I dont know what Greg did before or after. But this is a great album. It's out of print now. There are some on Amazon and half.com going for as low as $25. But so worth it. Ok I lied, on Half.com there are 2 for sale at $34 and $44. . on Amazon.com, the cheapest is $19.99

There were two other Badlands albums(Voodoo Highway and Dusk), but Eric Singer arent on those. But, still great albums too.

My new Art Book! Lots of Rock Art!
Hey folks,

In 2001, my first art book, FANTASTIC VISIONS, was published by Avatar Press. It was a cool book, but the color section was relatively small, and it only featured drawings and paintings of properties I own. In other words, no STAR WARS, or any of the other cool properties I've worked with.

Last year, my second art book, PUCKER, was published by SQP. While this was my first full color art book, it featured my glamour, pin-up and good girl art. While it did show many of the licensed properties, the focus was only with ones that featured the ladies.

Now, I'm proud to announce THE WORLDS OF MATT BUSCH, which is being published by Hermes Press!

Finally, a book that will show all the different sides of my art. From Sci-Fi to Horror to many of the Music acts I've worked with... This book will have it all! From MOTLEY CRUE to ALICE COOPER to FOO FIGHTERS to OZZY OSBOURNE, BLACK SABBATH, MARILYN MANSON, and more!

Designed lavishly by Daniel Herman, this huge book actually has twice as many pages as PUCKER! Extra glossy and thick stock paper- this book will be classy! If you're even remotely fond of my work- this is definitely the book to get!

You can preorder the book right now at Target- and you'll save a whopping 34% off the cover price! Click the image above!

Thanks so much for your support!

JOE ELLIOTT Explains Differences Between DEF LEPPARD And GUNS N' ROSES
Jed Gottlieb of BostonHerald.com recently conducted an interview with DEF LEPPARD vocalist Joe Elliott. An excerpt from the chat follows:

BostonHerald.com: So what specifically makes you so different from GUNS N' ROSES?

Elliott: OK, I'll tell you this. For a long time THE ROLLING STONES had the tag of the most dangerous band in the world, but I've never heard of them going on at midnight. If they were due on at nine, they came on at nine. If you're going to be a dangerous band you don't have to do it like Axl [Rose] did where you piss off as many people as you pleasure. With us it's all about the pleasure. We don't have an agenda and we don't try and court the press to make us look better than we are or worse then we are. We get on with it.

BostonHerald.com: Why don't you get into all the rock star antics that made GN'R so wild?

Elliott: I think that in part it's because were British. There's a romance to a British band that is different than American bands. As dangerous as The Who were, there was still a kind of gentlemanly conduct about them. It was all champagne and cravats even with the cocaine and smashing guitars. Even with [LED] ZEPPELIN there was a mildness to their rape and pillage, as opposed to the ridiculous Hollywood version of the thing in the '80s where it was all bandanas and headbands and everybody pretending to be out of it. We were always in control with our business managers and accountants.

BostonHerald.com: Did you really feel in control when everything got really big with "Pyromania"?

Elliott: Really, the only thing we weren't in control of was how we were going to react to success. We planned in our minds to be the biggest band in the world, that's who we wanted to be. We weren't SOUTHSIDE JOHNNY AND THE ASBURY JUKES. God bless 'em, but we didn't want to be any of those guys. We didn't want to be Commander Cody or Zappa. We were always going to try to be up there with THE BEATLES and the STONES and FLOYDs and THE WHOs of this world.

somewhat Reunited Ratt writing new material

RATT frontman Stephen Pearcy has issued the following update from the band's "Back for More" tour with POISON:

"The crowds coming out are f*kin crazy! The shows are getting crazier and better. Always a new experience every day. Warren [DeMartini, guitar] and I are writing new music every chance we get. We're in EP/'Out of the Cellar' mode right now. Writing on the bus, backstage and the hotel. We're coming up with great stuff right now. As soon as we have a few weeks off anywhere stable, we'll get in a studio and start laying it down, the new music, so to speak."

Chicago radio personality Cara Carriveau recently posted an audio interview with Stephen Pearcy as part of her podcast, "Cara's Basement". Pearcy discusses many things, from how he got his start in rock and roll literally by accident to attending Friars Club Roasts with Milton Berle.

You can hear this interview at www.CarasBasement.com and subscribe to this podcast via iTunes.

Video footage of the reunited RATT's July 3, 2007 performance in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina has been posted at Stephen-Pearcy.com (Windows Media).

RATT returned to stores with new DVD and CD releases on July 31: the first-ever DVD release from the band, "Ratt: Videos From The Cellar: The Atlantic Years", and the audio collection "Tell The World: The Very Best Of Ratt", which features the hard rockers at their studio and live performance peak and includes an unreleased track.

W.A.S.P. (aka Blackie Lawless)
I have come to terms with the fact that W.A.S.P. is good and that Blackie Lawless is a real good song writer. He has such powerful lyrics that catch you right away. I know that I go around saying W.A.S.P. sucks and everything but I am only joking and mostly doing it to piss off my boyfriend because he ALWAYS goes around saying how much my music sucks and how untalented they are and so forth.
