Danko and Volbeat & Duff McKagan
Danko and Volbeat & Duff McKagan
The show is sold out at Showbox Market tomorrow night! The feedback on the new Volbeat song “The Hangman’s Bodycount” is great thus far.  I’ll be doing video interviews with Volbeat and Danko Jones.
 I’ve been a huge Danko fan for quite some time now. We each have those bands that we love and wonder why they’re not bigger.  That’s the case for me and Danko.  At least here in the states.  I can’t wait to hear what I know will be good things about them tomorrow night. Our good buddy Duff McKagan is a fan as well.  He wrote a great piece on the band this week for Seattle Weekly.
Please check it out!!
I unfortunately won’t be at the show due to well, my airshift. So have fun and hopefully we can gain some new Danko fans here in the pacific northwest!
The new album is called Rock And Roll is Black And Blue. Dig it!

Pink Floyd The Final Cut
ZZ Top Eliminator
Thursday is the 30th Anniv of Pink Floyds "The Final Cut"!
The Final Cut is the twelfth studio album by English progressive rock group Pink Floyd. It was released on 21 March 1983 by Harvest Records in the United Kingdom, and several weeks later by Columbia Records in the United States. A concept album, The Final Cut is the last of the band's releases to include founding member and long-time lyricist Roger Waters. It is the only Pink Floyd album on which Waters is credited for the writing and composition of every song. Most of the lyrics are sung by Waters; lead guitarist David Gilmour provides vocals on only one of the album's tracks.
The Final Cut was originally planned as a soundtrack album for the band's 1982 film Pink Floyd—The Wall. With the onset of the Falklands War, Waters changed it to be a critique of war, and also what he considered the betrayal of his father. The Final Cut was recorded in eight studios across Britain, from July to December 1982. As with most of Pink Floyd's discography, a range of session musicians were employed as contributors, but its production was dominated by increasing tensions between Waters and his band mates, particularly Gilmour. Keyboardist Richard Wright was at that point no longer a member of the band. The packaging was designed by Waters, and reflects the war theme of the album. It reached the top of the UK Albums Chart, but received mixed reviews. An accompanying short film was later released.
Following the album's release each member of the band concentrated on solo projects, but Waters then announced that he had left the group, and later attempted to keep Gilmour and drummer Nick Mason from using the Pink Floyd name. Gilmour has since expressed his dislike for much of The Final Cut.
All lead vocals performed by Roger Waters except "Not Now John" by David Gilmour and Roger Waters.
All songs written and composed by Roger Waters.

Saturday is the 30th Anniv of ZZ Tops "Eliminator"!
Eliminator is the eighth studio album by American rock band ZZ Top. It was released on March 23, 1983, by Warner Bros. Records. Recorded in Tennessee during 1982, the album was produced by the band's manager Bill Ham and peaked at the top of the charts worldwide. "Gimme All Your Lovin'", "Got Me Under Pressure", "Sharp Dressed Man", "TV Dinners", and "Legs" were released as singles. A Diamond award winner, Eliminator is ZZ Top's most successful release with sales of over 10 million copies in the United States.
The band wanted to expand on the synthesizer sound of their 1981 record El Loco. Influenced by pop music, Eliminator′s tracks were recorded with a combination of the synthesizer, drum machine, and sequencer. The album used music videos as successful promotional tools—the videos for "Gimme All Your Lovin'", "Sharp Dressed Man", and "Legs" all received regular rotation on MTV. A customized 1930s Ford coupe, depicted on the album cover, could be seen in the videos. Following Eliminator′s release, ZZ Top embarked on a worldwide concert tour.
Eliminator garnered widespread critical acclaim. Praise centered on its songwriting and use of synthesizers. Often considered ZZ Top's most popular release, the record has been featured in several publications' best albums lists. It ranked number 396 on Rolling Stone magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time and was listed at number 39 in The 100 Greatest Albums of the 80's. In 2008, Eliminator was remastered and reissued, with the addition of bonus tracks and a DVD containing live performances.
In 1976, Billy Gibbons convened with Buffalo Motor Cars in Paramount, California to build a customized 1933 Ford coupe. The car was built with a Corvette-style engine fabricated by the So-Cal Speed Shop.[citation needed] It was finished in 1983 and called the Eliminator. The car has become recognizable for its red finish and graphics, which can be seen in several of the band's music videos. The Eliminator has also made worldwide appearances in television, movies, auto shows, and charity events.
In 1979, ZZ Top reunited after a two-year break from touring and signed a new record deal, switching from London Records to Warner Bros. Frontman Billy Gibbons and bassist Dusty Hill also grew out chest-length beards. The beards, along with black sunglasses, have become distinctive aspects of the band's image. ZZ Top's sixth studio album Degüello was released in August 1979. The album went platinum and sold over a million units in the United States. El Loco (1981) experimented with the sounds of synthesizers. It went gold and initially sold over half a million copies. "Tube Snake Boogie" went to number four on the Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart.
Eliminator was released worldwide on March 23, 1983. The name of the album derives from a term for winning a drag race. The front cover is an illustration of the Eliminator coupe by Tom Hunnicutt. Three of Eliminator's five singles appeared in the top 10 on the Billboard Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart. "Gimme All Your Lovin'", released in April 1983, went to the number two position.
In 1983, ZZ Top made several music videos in California. "Gimme All Your Lovin'" was filmed at a gas station in Littlerock, while "Sharp Dressed Man" was filmed at night on the streets of Downtown Los Angeles.[citation needed] "Legs" took place at a restaurant and shoe salon in Newhall;[citation needed] Gibbons and Dusty Hill had custom Dean Z guitars made with authentic sheepskin covering the body and tuners, as well as a unit to make the guitars spin in a complete circle. With Tim Newman as director, the "Legs" video won an MTV Video Music Award for Best Group Video in 1984. The Eliminator coupe, along with three Playboy models, made an appearance in the videos.
All songs written by Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill and Frank Beard.

JIMI HENDRIX: "New" Album May Debut at Number Two
JIMI HENDRIX: "New" Album May Debut at Number Two
It has everything to do with being featured on last week’s Sit N Spin with The Mens Room haha. Very cool!
It looks as if the new Jimi Hendrix collection, People, Hell and Angels, will land at number-two when this week's Billboard chart is revealed on Wednesday -- at least if the "industry sources" cited by the Hollywood Reporter are on the mark.
The magazine says the album will have sold about 70,000 copies by Sunday's end of the tracking week. If it does debut at number-two, it'll be the highest-charting Hendrix release since his third album, Electric Ladyland, went number-one for two weeks in 1968.
People, Hell and Angels is the ninth posthumous U.S. album of studio material by Hendrix. The last one, 2010's Valleys of Neptune debuted and peaked at number-four. At the time, it was his highest-charting posthumous release since the first one, 1971's The Cry of Love.
