How about some cool DSOTM factoids!
 
The new material was recorded in two sessions in 1972 and 1973 at Abbey Road Studios in London. The group used some of the most advanced recording techniques of the time, including multitrack recording and tape loops.
 
The Dark Side of the Moon was an immediate success, topping the Billboard Top LPs & Tapes chart for one week. It subsequently remained in the charts for 741 weeks from 1973 to 1988. With an estimated 50 million copies sold, it is Pink Floyd's most commercially successful album and one of the best-selling albums worldwide. It has twice been remastered and re-released, and has been covered in its entirety by several other acts.
 
The success of the album brought previously unknown wealth to all four members of the band; Richard Wright and Roger Waters bought large country houses, and Nick Mason became a collector of upmarket cars. Some of the profits were invested in the production of Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Engineer Alan Parsons received a Grammy Award nomination for Best Engineered Recording, Non-Classical for The Dark Side of the Moon, and he went on to have a successful career as a recording artist with the Alan Parsons Project. Although Waters and Gilmour have on occasion downplayed his contribution to the success of the album, Mason has praised his role.In 2003, Parsons reflected: "I think they all felt that I managed to hang the rest of my career on Dark Side of the Moon, which has an element of truth to it. But I still wake up occasionally, frustrated about the fact that they made untold millions and a lot of the people involved in the record didn't.

NINE INCH NAILS: Trent Makes a Return
Trent Reznor is returning Nine Inch Nails to the road this year. Reznor, who took a break from the band four years ago after the Wave Goodbye tour, has a new lineup ready to go.
Reznor issued an offbeat statement that says, "I was working with Adrian Belew on some musical ideas, which led to some discussion on performing, which led to some beard-scratching, which (many steps later) led to the decision to re-think the idea of what Nine Inch Nails could be, and the idea of playing a show. Calls were made to some friends, lots of new ideas were discussed, and a show was booked -- which led to another, which somehow led to a lot of shows."
Joining Reznor and Belew in the lineup are Alessandro Cortini and Ilan Rubin, who played in the last version of the band, as well ex-Jane's Addiction bassist Eric Avery andJosh Eustis of Telefon Tel Aviv. The first shows will happen this summer, followed by an arena tour of the U.S. this fall.
 
I think some NIN is in order for 90 Something tonight!!

LED ZEPPELIN: Make Bonham Your Drummer
Every wondered what what The White Stripes or Radiohead would sound like with late Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham?
Well, the Bonhamizer website does just that. The site already has a number of examples that have added "basic Bonham," "double time shuffle," "Bonham shuffle" and "hammer of the gods" to songs like the Stripes' "Seven Nation Army," Radiohead's "Karma Police,"Fun's "Some Nights" and "The Cave" by Mumford and Sons.

SIS Bands Who You thought were solo artists and New MAD SEASON!!

Bands Who You thought were solo artists and New MAD SEASON!!
 
To start things off a word on the new Mad Season from Barrett Martin of Mad Season, Screaming Trees and Walking Papers!
 
Hey Folks, I want to say a few things about this new Mad Season box set because it gives me great honor and happiness to release the first of 5 bonus tracks that are included in the new “Above” deluxe edition. This song, “Locomotive”, was recorded with myself, Mike McCready, and Baker Saunders back in 1996 when we were working on basic tracks for the second Mad Season album. It features Mark Lanegan on vocals, my former band mate from Screaming Trees, who was also an honorary member of Mad Season. Mark co-wrote two of the songs on the “Above” album, those being “Above” and “Long Gone Day”, and he is also featured singing those songs with Layne on the DVD that is included in the box set. There is no other singer in the world but Mark who could have sung these songs in the way that Layne would have intended, because those two understood each other better than anybody. Mark was one of Layne’s closest friends, and the 3 bonus songs that he wrote lyrics for, and sang on, are a tribute to both Layne and Baker, and I know they would be proud of Mark’s contribution to their memories. And I personally believe, after overseeing this entire process with Mike, that this is going to be a beautiful package that all fans of Mad Season will enjoy. The original album “Above” has not been altered, and we included these 5 bonus tracks as a memoriam to our friends, and nothing more. And by the way, Peter Buck of REM co-wrote and played guitar on one of these bonus tracks back in 1996, because he also loved Mad Season and was a friend of Layne and Baker. We played our first shows at Peter's nightclub in Seattle, The Crocodile Cafe! So as we release these songs to the world, please remember that they were done in the spirit of love and friendship, because that’s the way Layne and Baker were as human beings. They loved people first and foremost, and they did not judge anyone. I always thought those were the finest qualities any man could have; love and non-judgment. And those are the qualities they would want from all of us in the world today. I wrote an essay about that magical period of time, which is included in the booklet of the box set. It’s about the healing power of music and the interaction we all had together, as we made that album. And while we're at it, let’s not forget Skerik (Nalgas Sin Carne), who played tenor saxophone and percussion on “Above”, as well as on the bonus tracks. Or Brett Eliason, who co-produced “Above” and helped us put this entire collection together. Remember, Mad Season was more than just 4 people; it was a family of Seattle musicians who loved music and loved each other. That’s why it was a special band from the start.
 
Peep the song if you haven’t heard it!
 

 
And then we followed that up with Sit N Spin: Bands Who You Thought Were Solo Artists!

Danny Carey of Tool: Busted ribs!
Danny Carey of Tool: Busted ribs!
 
 
So exactly one year ago I did a number on my own ribs.  (Long story for another time.) So, I like many of you know what that kind of pain feels like.  And to have to play drums??? Rough! Here’s wishing Danny a solid recovery, the new Tool will be worth the wait I’m sure!
 
TOOL: Drummer Took a Spill
Tool drummer Danny Carey admitted he's the member of the band who got crashed a Vespa a few weeks ago.
Last week, Tool's website cryptically revealed that one member had gotten into an accident, delaying work on their new album. Carey says, "It's been tough lately because I cracked four ribs, broke three of them on a motorcycle the other day, so I am kinda laid up at this point. It's making it really painful to play. It's not an easy thing to do."
Carey adds that he still hopes the new Tool album can be released by the end of the year.
 
Take care,
Jolene

Van Halen first album turns 35!!
Van Halen’s 1st album turns 35!
 
Van Halen’s first album released in 1978 will be turning 35 years old on Sunday.  Arguably one of the greatest hard rock debuts of ALL time!  KISW has really cool history with the band.  KISW Hall Of Famer Steve Slayton has amazing stories of playing them first (as legend goes!) having each band member show up in their own limo with cases of champagne and strippers for KISW’S 15th Anniversary and countless other stories!
 
Hear Miles Montgomery rap with Steve Slayton.

Van Halen’s self-titled album holds up remarkably well to this day! The actual anniversary is on Sunday but in true Friday party rock fashion I’ll play the whole thing for ya, Side A and Side B Friday starting at 6pm!!
