Only U2 Has Now Hit #1 Every Decade 80s-2010s

U2’s new album “Songs of Experience” is #1 this week on the Billboard Top 200 album chart.

This is the band’s 8th #1 album. In addition to their brand new album, previous Billboard #1 albums include: No Line on the Horizon (2009), How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb (2004), Pop (1997), Zooropa (1993), Achtung Baby (1991), the Rattle and Hum soundtrack (1988) and The Joshua Tree (1987).

This feat now makes U2 the only group with an album that’s hit #1 in every decade from the 80s to the 2010’s. That’s 4 decades, if you’re counting.

 

 

Meteor Shower Wednesday Night!

This is a good one – up to 120 shooting stars at its peak. The Geminids meteors last longer and are more vibrant than other showers throughout the year.

And the best part about the annual Geminids meteor shower is that you can start watching for them as early as 9pm.

For best viewing, the darker the sky, the better.

Look to the northeast to find the Gemini constellation. If you locate the famously bright 3 stars of the hunter’s belt of Orion, you’re not too far from Gemini. It’s just up and to the right. You want to look slightly away from that area for the biggest odds of seeing full meteors, tails and all…

Watch: Billy Joel Tears It Up Live With Tribute To AC/DC’s Malcolm Young

Billy Joel has proven that he is an AC/DC fan on more than one occasion.

Not only has he covered the band in the past but he has also welcomed the bands former singer Brian Johnson on stage with him as well.

This past weekend Billy took to the stage at Madison Square Garden and tore it up on the AC/DC classic “Highway To Hell” in tribute to Malcolm Young.

Watch the video above.

Are The Eagles Hitting The Road With Jimmy Buffett?

Word has it that the current line up of The Eagles will take to the road with special guest Jimmy Buffett.

Being that word comes from Eagles’ manager Irving Azoff I’d say it seems legit.

Joe Walsh says to expect 40 to 50 dates out of The Eagles for 2018 but Azoff cautions the dates with Buffett will only be a “handful”.

Certainly both acts can command enough of a crowd to hit the road alone.

So if this is happening it seems like it has more to do with friendship.

Buffett was The Eagles opening act back in 1976.

In fact Jimmy credits the band with helping launch his career.

Plus Buffett was the man tapped to induct The Eagles into the Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame.

See evidence of their friendship in the videos below.

One video is Jimmy covering The Eagles in concert last year and the other is Glenn Frey sitting in with Jimmy on “Margaritaville” live back in 1976.

WATCH: Rick Pulls Fan Onstage to Sing

One of Rick Springfield’s biggest fans had the thrill of a lifetime at Saturday’s night’s free, 98.9 WMMO Downtown Concert Series at Lake Eola in downtown Orlando.

Every good Rick fan knows that during song 3 or 4, he plays “I Get Excited” and pulls a fan onstage to sing it with him.

Tonia K was ready.

Tonia planted herself as close to the stage as she could, while holding a sing that read, “Rick…You + Me + IGE?” [For “I Get Excited”]

Rick gave the nod to the nearby security guard and Tonia was lifted onstage where Rick whispered, “You better know the words!” into her ear. Tonia responded with something to the effect of, “Duh!”

She then beamed from ear-to-ear with some pretty impressive moves. Even had the rock-star-back-bend goin’ on. Tonia said later it was one of the best nights of her life. Take a look for yourself…

WMMO has been presenting the free concerts for 27 years.

Hagar: No Van Halen Reunion. It’s Over.

Sammy Hagar pronounced repeatedly over the past year or two that a Van Halen reunion tour, with both he and David Lee Roth singing, is inevitable.

But now he’s singing a different tune. And it sounds to me that’s because his feeling are hurt. I get it. Here are some of the positive signs that led us all to believe a reunion would be forthcoming…

Hagar made it no secret he wanted to do a big reunion tour – with both he and David Lee Roth alternating as frontmen.

Hagar reached out to Eddie Van Halen via Twitter to wish him a happy birthday last year and Eddie tweeted back. (Mike Anthony actually told an interviewer that he suspected it was Eddie’s wife who Tweeted back to Hagar.)

Mike Anthony had a phone conversation with drummer Alex Van Halen after not speaking for 10 or 11  years.

And then, after all of those signs, Sammy’s 70th birthday came and went with no word from the Van Halen’s.

Now, Sammy told rock journalist Eddie Trunk, “I don’t know what’s wrong with those two brothers, man. All that says to me is that it’s over, man. Those guys do not want to be friends, and if they don’t wanna be friends, then we certainly ain’t gonna do a reunion.

 

An Appropriate Tom Petty Song For Halloween About Cassadaga Plus The Legend Of The Devil’s Chair

If you take the Tom Petty and The Heartbreaker’s single “Don’t Do Me Like That” you’ll find a B Side that wasn’t on the album.

That song is “Casa Dega”.

The song is written somewhat about nearby Cassadaga in Volusia County.

Cassadaga is a Spiritualist Camp originally settled in the 1800’s.

Petty said of the song and place “There are all kinds of psychics and fortune tellers. It’s this really small place. And I wrote that by putting myself in the mind of someone who went to Cassadaga. Though I spelled it wrong. … Poetic license, I guess.”

Cassadaga is also home to “The Devil’s Chair”, which involves legends of demonic conversations and beer drinking.

So watch a video below of Tom and the band performing “Casa Dega” and below that see a video about “The Devil’s Chair” in Cassadaga.

Oh, and Happy Halloween.

October 1977 Steve Perry Joined Journey Watch Some Live Clips Of Them Together

October 28th 1977 Steve Perry joined Journey on stage in front of an audience for the first time.

These days Steve Perry seems so much the face of what Journey is or at least what they became.

It’s hard to imagine it any other way.

By the time Perry joined the band that already had 3 albums out with a much different style than what they were developing with him.

In fact for his first show Journey performed their entire regular show before bringing Steve to the stage.

But it worked and continued to work for many years.

Check out some great live performances below.

One of those performances is from about 4 months after Steve had joined the band.
