It seems like Billy Joel has been all over the news recently!

MUST SEE: Rami Malek looks just like Freddie Mercury!

The movie won’t be out til Christmas of next year, but it’s being filmed right now and director Bryan Singer shared some photos from the set of the new Queen biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody.”

It’s crazy how much Mr. Robot actor Rami Malek looks like Queen frontman Freddie Mercury!

This movie has taken a long time to come to fruition. Borat star Sacha Baron Cohen was initially tied to the role of Freddie but there seemed to be disagreement as to how the story would be told.

Guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor were both on set this week.

In addition to Emmy-winner Malek as Freddie Mercury, Ben Hardy will portray drummer Roger Taylor, Joe Mazzello as bassist John Deacon and Gwilym Lee as guitarist Brian May.

Just as we’re giving away Scorpions tickets to the final date of the tour, word comes in that the last 5 dates have been cancelled.

Apparently, singer Klaus Meine has been battling laryngitis and his doctor has advised him that continuing to strain under those circumstances could cause permanent damage.

Florida Gators to Honor Tom Petty at Saturday’s Game vs LSU

Tom Petty grew up just 2 hours away from us – in Gainesville. Although he and his family had little to do with the goings-on at the University of Florida while he was growing up, he has said if he had to choose a college team to root for, it would be the Florida Gators.

Just sayin…

As a Florida alumnus, I can tell you that simply attending that school makes you a Petty fan. It was so cool to walk around the city and know that he walked those same streets as a boy before anybody knew who he was.

So I was thrilled to read that this Saturday, when the Gators take on the Louisiana State University Tigers, they will make an adjustment to a long-standing tradition to honor Tom Petty.

At the end of the 3rd quarter, Gators in the stands sway, while singing “We Are the Boys from Old Florida.” At this Saturday’s game, they will keep on singing…Tom Petty’s “I Won’t Back Down”.

Florida Athletic Director Scott Stricklin said, “Let’s celebrate together what he meant to the world of music and what he meant to this community. Since we are already singing ‘We are the Boys’, let’s go right from that into one of his great anthems and make that the way we are going to jointly celebrate Tom Petty and the Gators.”

I like it! And I hope it becomes a FOREVER tradition.

The Florida-LSU game is this Saturday at 3:30pm on CBS.

Mellencamp, Jagger, Rock World Pay Tribute to Tom Petty

Love the poetic way John Mellencamp paid tribute to Tom Petty on his Facebook page:

“Tom Petty was the Edward Hopper of American songwriters,” it begins. “He was a certain kind of bird that had no legs, so he could never land on this earth; he lived his whole life in the sky. And now he will spread his wings and sleep on the wind. His name is written in the stars. John Mellencamp.”

Bob Dylan:

“It’s shocking, crushing news,” Bob Dylan said in a statement to Rolling Stone. “I thought the world of Tom. He was a great performer, full of the light, a friend, and I’ll never forget him.”

Eric Clapton

“I’m shocked and saddened by the news of Tom’s passing, he’s such a huge part of our musical history, there’ll never be another like him,” Eric Clapton told the Associated Press in a statement.

Joe Elliott of Def Leppard

“Through his work with the Heartbreakers and The Traveling Wilburys he’s left us with an incredibly legacy to enjoy forever, it’s such a shame he has left us way before his time.”

Paul McCartney

Dear Tom, so sad to hear of his passing. What a lovely, intelligent and talented man he was. Love to his family.

Jon Bon Jovi

I’m crushed…Praying for all those affected by Vegas last night. And now the loss of one of my great influences Tom Petty today. -JBJ

Alice Cooper

“It is so rare to find someone who commands such universal respect in the business,” Alice Cooper tweeted. “He was a rock n roll lifer with music in his blood. This man delivered a wealth of great songs to his fans and to the world and that is something to celebrate.”

Paul Stanley of KISS

No! We have lost Tom Petty. From our opening act in the seventies to becoming a brilliant songwriter and performer I have loved his music.

Peter Frampton

I can’t believe we have lost Tom Petty on this already horrible day. My love to his wife & children and the entire Heartbreaker family.

Cameron Crowe

no words. just thanks.

 

 

 

Celebrating Tom Petty’s Life With His Music

The first concert I ever saw was Tom petty and The Heartbreakers.

I was just a kid but the impact of that show will never go away.

That made the news of Tom’s passing that much worse.

Mr Petty was the first music artist that truly made a difference in my life.

I have so many memories tied to his music.

I can remember hearing “Rebels” for the first time ever when I was a truck driver making a delivery.

The countless shows I’ve seen him play up and down the East Coast and out on The West Coast too.

From the “Rock N” Roll Caravan” shows to the tour with Bob Dylan.

The number of times I’ve listened to “Southern Accents” and been near tears as the song brought images to my mind of my mother who had passed away.

Hell, the quote under my high school yearbook picture is from Tom.

Below are some performances of Tom and The Heartbreakers that are special to me.

Tom I can never repay the debt I owe you but I will forever play your music in an effort to do just that.

Yard Debris Drop-Off Locations

The City Beautiful is beginning to stink. Hurricane Irma, the gift that keeps on giving.

The City of Orlando said the amount of yard debris littering roadways is more than the amount they would normally pick up in 4-and-a-half years! So, even with crews working 7 days a week, it’s going to take several weeks before they get to all of it.

If you really want it gone, some cities and municipalities have opened drop-off locations for residents.

Here are the information pages for each county:

Orange County 

Seminole County

Osceola County

Lake County

Volusia County
