Royal Blood
Royal Blood “Out Of The Black”.
 
 
The band is called Royal Blood and the song is “Out Of The Black.”  These guys are a relatively new British rock duo.  Some reference The Black Keys when talking about the band.  I think they’ve got a sprinkling of The Mars Volta myself.
 
But before we jump to conclusions how about a listen?
 
Please listen, and let me know what you think! Cool?
 
Thank you as always.

SIS Music from Denver/Colorado
Sit N Spin Denver and Colorado music!
  
Republic Plaza in Denver Colorado 2

A sister station of ours in Denver decided to boycott all music from Seattle for the week.  I caught wind of it via an email from Hairclub, to the fine folks of said Denver rock station. 
 
I’m quoting Hairclub below.
 
“Oh Really. Not going to play any Seattle music huh?  Starve the good people of Denver of current and future Hall of Famers like Hendrix, Heart, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Death Cab for Cutie, Queensryche, Alice in Chains, Soundgarden, Ray Charles, Macklemore – even Sir Mix a Lot?”
 
And so our idea for this week’s Sit And Spin was born!  
 
We decided to focus on the great …….“Mt Rushmore’s of Music” from Denver/Colorado.
 
Heh!
 
I suggest you take the fine playlist and plaster it all over Facebook!  Especially if you’ve got a buddy that’s a Bronco fan!
 
Dig the playlist below.

Grammys, bad hat and rawk cut short!
56th GRAMMY Awards - Show
Grammy’s! One bad hat and how RAWK was cut short. 
 
 
Congrats to SIRVANA!! Dave Grohl, Black Sabbath and more!  What did you like? Don’t you dare say Pharrell Williams hat either.  In this day and age, it’s kind of a letdown to have two different feeds east and west coast.  Hmmm….anyhow! Please share what you thought in the comments section.  Side note, I would love to have Beyonce’s tush, at least for a day.  Scroll below for a rundown of how the final act (NIN, QOTSA, Foo FighTers etc.) GOT THE SHORT END OF THE STICK!!

As I write this, I’m missing the show closer……THE RAWK MUSIC MY FRIENDS!
 
The following is what Loudwire.com had to say about the performance.
http://loudwire.com/nine-inch-nails-dave-grohl-queens-of-the-stone-age-2014-grammy-awards/
 
Below is from loudwire.com
Already a two-time Grammy Award winner before the end of the night, Dave Grohl finished the Grammys on a high note. The Foo Fighters frontman joined Queens of the Stone Age, Nine Inch Nails and Fleetwood Mac legend Lindsey Buckingham for the show’s closing performance — at least what we got to see of it.
The performance opened with Nine Inch Nails’ driving single ‘Copy of A’ with the band silhouetted and dimly lit, but it was eventually revealed that Josh Homme and Lindsey Buckingham were on hand to both sing and play guitar on the song.
Eventually, the dark, strobelight lit imagery gave way to a bright red orb above the stage and Homme’s instantly familiar guitar licks for ‘My God Is the Sun’ kicked in. The furious rocker found Grohl behind the kit pounding away while Trent Reznor appeared to have moved over to keys.
Unfortunately for rock fans who had been waiting the entire show for the performance, the producers decided midway through the song to show some of the Grammy sponsors and roll the closing credits over a distant shot of the stage while the band continued to play. The broadcast actually ended while the all-star finale was still onstage performing.
The one unifying factor of all the members of the finale is that they were linked through Grohl’s documentary, ‘Sound City,’ which helped earn the singer-drummer-turned-director two Grammys earlier in the evening.

Grammy’s and Kurt Cobain Day in Aberdeen!!
Grammy’s and Kurt Cobain Day in Aberdeen!!
 
NIRVANA: Now Cobain Gets a Day
Grammy siluetaFirst there was Nirvana day, and now there's Kurt Cobain day.
Two nearby towns in the state of Washington -- Hoquiam and Aberdeen -- are apparently trying to cash in on Nirvana being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in April. Hoquiam -- where Cobain briefly lived -- announced last month that they would celebrate Nirvana Day on April 10th. On Wednesday Aberdeen announced that it would celebrate Kurt Cobain Day on February 20th, the birthday of the late singer-guitarist. Aberdeen, Cobain's hometown, plans to celebrate the day every year and hopes to turn it into a Kurt Cobain week.

GRAMMY PREDICTIONS: Best Rock Song
The Best Rock Song category is probably the easiest to predict for this year'sGrammys.
How can Grammy voters resist a tune that brings together a Beatle and the remaining members of Nirvana? "Cut Me Some Slack" by Dave GrohlPaul McCartneyKrist Novoselic and Pat Smear is the likely winner.
The also-rans in this category will be Gary Clark JuniorThe Rolling StonesMick Jagger and Keith RichardsBlack Sabbath's Geezer ButlerTony Iommi and Ozzy Osbourne; and Muse's Matthew Bellamy.
 
BEST ROCK PERFORMANCE
Alabama Shakes - "Always Alright"
David Bowie - "The Stars (Are Out Tonight)"
Imagine Dragons - "Radioactive"
Led Zeppelin - "Kashmir"
Queens of the Stone Age - "My God Is the Sun"
Jack White - "I'm Shakin'"
BEST METAL PERFORMANCE
Anthrax - "T.N.T."
Black Sabbath - "God Is Dead?"
Dream Theater - "The Enemy Inside"
Killswitch Engage - "In Due Time"
Volbeat f/ King Diamond - "Room 24"
BEST ROCK SONG
(award goes to songwriters; artist name in parentheses)
"Ain't Messin 'Round" - Gary Clark Jr. (Gary Clark Jr.)
"Cut Me Some Slack" - Dave Grohl, Paul McCartney, Krist Novoselic & Pat Smear (Paul McCartney, Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic, Pat Smear)
"Doom and Gloom" - Mick Jagger & Keith Richards (Rolling Stones)

BEST ROCK ALBUM
Black Sabbath - 13
David Bowie - The Next Day
Kings of Leon - Mechanical Bull
Led Zeppelin - Celebration Day
Queens of the Stone Age - ...Like Clockwork
 
RAMMY PREDICTIONS: Best Metal Performance
The Best Metal Performance category has one first time nominee, one guy competing against himself -- and one likely veteran winner.
Volbeat have their first-ever nomination for "Room 24," their track with King Diamond. Volbeat's lineup expanded last year when producer-guitarist Rob Caggiano joined. He had been in Anthrax before that, and is a nominee with them for their cover of AC/DC's "TNT."
Dream Theater (in 2011) and Killswitch Engage (in 2005) have been nominated before in this category, but both lost.
The only previous Grammy winner in the category is Black Sabbath for "God Is Dead?" from their reunion album13. And since Grammy voters will most likely recognize the Sabbath name first, that's who we think they'll pick.
 
And Lastly don’t forget about Metallica’s performance and this show closer………………..

QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, NINE INCH NAILS: Closing Grammys

An all-star jam will wrap up the Grammys Sunday night.
Nine Inch NailsQueens of the Stone AgeFoo FightersDave Grohl and Fleetwood Mac'sLindsey Buckingham will team up for the final performance of the evening. Its the first time Nine Inch Nails and Queens of the Stone Age have performed on the Grammys.
Grohl is the musician that connects all his fellow performers -- he got all three acts to appear in his Sound Citydocumentary and has drummed for Queens and Nine Inch Nails.
In other Grammys news, Black SabbathAerosmith's Steven Tyler and 30 Seconds to Mars frontman Jared Leto will be presenters.

KISS Dressed To Kill AGAIN!
KISS Dressed To Kill AGAIN!
 
KISS: Dressed to Kill...Again
KISS is the latest act to team up with John Varvatos for the fashion designer's new campaign. Outfitted in suits, just as they were on the cover of their 1975 album, Dressed to Kill, the band performed for Varvatos on Saturday night in Italy at his winter preview show for Milan Fashion Week.
Paul Stanley says, "I knew John's clothes for years because they have all those elements that I love in clothes, which are timeless. There is a style that goes back to some of the great rock 'n' roll bands of the 60s." 
Last September in New York, not far from where KISS posed for the cover of the Dressed to Kill album, they did a show at the Varvatos gallery, which occupies the space that was formerly punk club CBGB. They also did a photo shoot for the campaign at that time in Brooklyn.
Other artists who have taken part in campaigns for Varvatos include Cheap TrickZZ TopJimmy PageAlice CooperVelvet Revolver and Green Day.
