Ahhhh what a great night last night! First off the Devils finally scored more than one goal in a game, and thanks to that…the won! They fought off being swept, and now the Kings lead the Stanley Cup finals 3 games to 1. Let’s Go Devils…you can do it on Saturday…let’s make this a series!
The night was awesome also because my wife and I had a great date night…dinner at Dragonfish, which always rules…and then we saw Green Day’s American Idiot – The Musical! I’m telling you this…if you are a Green Day fan, you are going to LOVE this show…if you aren’t a Green Day fan, you are going to LOVE this show. It was a great, fast paced performance. I’m not a “musical” kind of guy, and I enjoyed every second of this musical…plus it gave me a new found appreciation for a record I already love – American Idiot by Green Day. The show runs until Sunday at The Paramount Theater…get tickets at http://www.stgpresents.org/. We had Van Hughes, the star of American Idiot, in studio on Tuesday…here he is performing “Boulevard Of Broken Dreams” (I posted the interview in yesterday’s blog, which you can get to here: http://www.kisw.com/STP-s-BLOG-06-06-12--Metal-Day-/11281377?pid=244836 ):

Mark Paul Gosselaar gained notoriety for playing Zack Morris on "Saved By the Bell" . . . but apparently, he doesn't hold the show in as high esteem as many people do. He says, quote, "It's not a great show . . . the writing is kind of hokey . . . it's very much a piece of that time."
Mark-Paul also says that he doesn't understand why it became such a huge hit in syndication. He adds, "We just thought we were doing a small little Saturday morning show and no one was watching. We were almost canceled every season. So we never got big heads . . . the two years after 'Saved By the Bell' I couldn't buy myself a job, because nobody had seen the show."
Mark Paul Gosselaar says that Saved By The Bell is not a great show, but it was hugely popular…based on this…whether it be a TV show, a movie, a musical record, or anything else…what is something that you know isn’t good, but you still love it? Here are the texts:
