Crikey! Google Doodle is paying tribute to the late “Crocodile Hunter” on what would have been his 57th birthday Friday.
Internet users with Google as their web browser homepage were treated to a cartoon drawing of Steve Irwin, the zookeeper and animal conservationist, to honor his memory and Australia’s National Wildlife Day, Newsweek reported.
Google also put together a slideshow of illustrations featuring the Australian native holding a crocodile and spending time with his wife, Terri, and children Bindi and Robert, CNN reported.
Irwin died Sept. 4, 2006, when a stingray barb went through his chest as he was filming an underwater documentary “Ocean’s Deadliest.”
Terri Irwin, in a blog post for Google, wrote her husband once said, “I don’t care if I’m remembered, as long as my message is remembered.”
"Today's Google Doodle acknowledges the life and achievements of my husband Steve Irwin, whose efforts to protect wildlife and wild places have been recognized as the most extensive of any conservationist," Terri Irwin wrote.
Steve and Terri Irwin filmed the nature series, "The Crocodile Hunter" together from 1996 to 2004.
Back in 2001 Motley Crue released their book “The Dirt”.
The book tells the band’s story.

Check out the full trailer below.
On March 1st 2019 a Tom Petty career retrospective called “The Best Of Everything” will come out.

Neal Schon has assembled a band called Journey Through Time.
Beside Schon the band also features other Journey alumni singer/keyboardist Greg Rolie (who was also in Santana with Neal) and drummer Deen Castronovo.
Neal has also invited Steve Perry to be involved in the tour.
Conventional wisdom says that isn’t going to happen.
The band will perform all the greatest Journey hits plus choice selections from their earliest recordings.
Schon says "We're really going to play anything that's in our repertoire — anything that Journey has recorded, I plan on mixing it up a lot and not playing the same set. Stuff from our first three records — we're going to update that a little bit — and have some fun jamming!"
Watch some videos of the band below.
On May 10th the first studio album from Sammy Hagar and The Circle, “Space Between”, will be released.

Sammy has been hinting around that this could be his last album.
Below check out the album’s first single “Trust Fund Baby”.
Axl Rose has released his first new music since 2008.
I’m betting it wasn’t what you were expecting.
The song is called “Rock The Rock”.
Axl had nothing to do with writing the song.
It’s a song from the “New Looney Tunes” episode "Armageddon Outta Here, Part Two" which premiered on December 24th.
In the episode Axl asks Bugs Bunny and Porky pig directions to the Civic Center where he will be playing with his band Steel Underpants.
They tell him it doesn’t matter because an asteroid is headed towards Earth and will destroy our planet before the show.
Axl says his new speakers can “Shake mountains to the ground”.
Bugs suggests that Axl using the Looney Tunes gang as his backing band play loud enough to destroy the asteroid.
The song they play is Axl’s new tune.
Watch what happens below.
Tom Hanks has played many roles during his storied acting career, but patrons at a California fast-food restaurant got a surprise curtain call.
Hanks and his wife, Rita Wilson, visited an In-N-Out Burger restaurant in Fontana for lunch Friday, KOVR reported.
This was big. Or a big burger story. The customers thought so.
Several customers at the restaurant posted online photos of Hanks meeting with fans, the Daily Press of Victorville reported. Hanks also bought lunch for some of the customers and took selfies with them, KOVR reported.
Hanks then walked to the drive-thru and bought lunch for some of the customers waiting in line, the television station reported.
Hanks has made no secret of his love for In-N-Out burgers, once notably telling talk-show host Conan O’Brien about the restaurant’s special language, the Daily Press reported.
“You have to say, give me a four-by-four animal style,” Hanks told O’Brien, according to the newspaper. “You have to speak a special language, if you know what I’m talking about.”
I love Christmas music no matter what genre.
Provided it’s a good song of course.

Then there is also Joey Ramone covering Darlene Love’s “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)” from the Phil Spector Christmas Album that U2 also famously covered.
