Stevie Nicks joined Tom Petty on stage at British Summer Time this past Sunday. Tom Petty introduced Nicks as an “honorary”
member of the group as she walked on stage, but don’t read about it watch it right here!
As we get ready to celebrate Independence Day we must remember that freedom isn’t free. Men and women risk their lives to protect the freedoms that we enjoy each day. We must take care of our military when their service has been completed. You may recognize actor Adam Driver for having played Kylo Ren in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”. You may not realize that he is also a veteran. Adam served in the United States Marine Corps. Watch this video as Adam working with Folds of Honor, which is a charitable group providing scholarships to spouses and children of fallen and disabled service members, delivers good news to a veteran and his family. This video moved me and I’m sure it will effect you as well.
The haters are all “he doesn’t deserve it”…blah, blah, blah. All I wanna know is, when do tickets go on sale? Tebow’s going to be playing a couple of hours away! The Mets say Tebow has improved enough to warrant a minor league baseball promotion from Low-A with the Columbia Fireflies to High-A in St. Lucie, Florida. He’s spent his life surprising people so don’t count him out just yet. And one thing’s for sure, he’ll sell tickets. The Mets know that. Full story here.
What do you get when you take the guitar playing Robinson brother from The Black Crowes and add in a few other former Crowes members and some more musicians? You get Rich Robinson’s new project The Magpie Salute. The band’s debut album is out now. It has one studio recording, the rest done live and it has some pretty cool covers as well with a lot of the songs clocking in at over 7 minutes long. Rich and I discussed the album, the tour and more. Give a listen to the interview below and check out the video for their song “Omission” under that. After you listen to the interview if you email me at JoeRock@WMMO.com and tell me what 3 words you say as The Magpie Salute you’ll be entered to win tickets to see them at The House of Blues here in Orlando on October 28th.

I bought Little Steven’s first solo record “Men Without Women” when it came out in the early 80’s. There are only so many perfect albums but this was and remains one of them. For the first time in nearly twenty years Steven has released a new album. We recently discussed the album, touring, the difference between being a sideman in The E Street Band and a band leader for The Disciples Of Soul and more. Give a listen to what Steven had to say and check out a few tunes from the album as well. https://cmgwmmowmmo.files.wordpress.com/2017/06/wmmo-little-steven.mp3
What a beautiful house. Classy, even. Surprised that Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee would live in such a fine abode? Isn’t this the guy with the Jagermeister tap in his bar? I don’t think I’d allow parties in the backyard if I lived in that house. It’s just too spectacular. My favorite “room” in the house. And with that gorgeous L.A. weather…It would be hard to leave. Well, it can all be yours. The price has even been reduced by a million bucks. You can now own this mansion in Calabasas for the low, low price of…just about 5 million dollars. View the pictures and tell us which room is your favorite. PICTURES HERE.
May 30th 2017 Bob seger posted a video to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. The posts all read “Rock n Roll Never Forgets…Stay Tuned.” The video sound track is a clip of Bob’s road song “Turn The Page” from his landmark album “Live Bullet”. Certain lines from the song flash across the screen amid pictures of Seger in concert from different points in his career. The lines that flash across the screen are “On the road again” and “Up on the stage”. They are followed by the ominous line “One last time” before the video ends on the Bob Seger and The Silver Bullet Band logo. I have seen Bob and The Silver Bullet Band many times over the years. If you’ve never seen them, trust me, you should. It will be sad to say goodbye if this is indeed a farewell tour but make no mistake, I will see them for sure. See the video below and decide for yourself if they are getting ready to say goodbye.
Billy Joel played Dodger Stadium in LA Saturday night and Axl Rose joined him for a couple songs. AC/DC’s “Highway to Hell” has kind of become a staple in Billy Joel concerts. Billy doesn’t sing it, someone else comes out for that while he’s on guitar. This time that someone was Axl Rose. Considering Axl stepped in on tour last year with AC/DC when Brian Johnson was sidelined for hearing loss, Axl’s got this one down. That was all well and good… then he came back. During the encore, Axl returned for “Big Shot.” Judge for yourself with the videos below but I’m not sure I’m a fan. Granted the audio quality isn’t great, but it was so weird hearing Axl’s very distinctive voice on that one. Maybe it’ll grow on me… or not. What do you think?
