Go Hawks! What an awesome win yesterday! Big thanks to Doug Baldwin for joining us on the show…did you see that sick catch he made…with one hand? You could give me 6 or 7 hands…while also being weird, I wouldn’t have been able to catch that pass! Check it out:
Here is a link to a higher quality video of the catch:
Also, Doug has a fun show on You Tube called The Fresh Files…check out the latest episode:
I wanted to share this as I think it’s an awesome story. My buddy Jeff Angell is the frontman of Walking Papers (the band that features Duff McKagan, and Barrett Martin). He posted this on his Facebook page, and as a fellow musician (ok…fin…I’m a drummer not a musician Waka Waka)…I read this with as much enthusiasm as he probably had when writing this:
So today was the last day of the Uproar tour. It was a fantastic experience. I made some new friends, melted many faces, saw some new places and learned all sorts of things about parking lots.
When I was a kid there were a handful of bands that had a huge impact on me musically. Three of those bands would be Guns n Roses, Jane's Addiction and Alice in Chains. To be on tour with Duff in our band and opening side shows with Jane's was already mind numbing. But wait, there's more!
I saw Alice in Chains play their second show at the Renton Musician Hall when they were still called Diamond Lie. I immediately went home and started writing songs of my own. I was young enough to draw pictures of them on my book covers in junior high school and I started planning my weekends around getting from Tacoma to Seattle to see them play. On one such expedition I saw them at The Kent Skate King along with Mother Love Bone, War Babies and Tramp Alley. I was still an awkward teenager and didn't quite know how to fit in but I was meant to be there. I was at the show when they changed there name to Alice in Chains from Diamond Lie and I saw them perform both "I Can't Remember" and "Sea of Sorrow" for the first time anywhere.
I have to say Alice in Chains made rock n roll tangible for me.
I was at the Moore Theater for the Seattle Music Awards where they played another song for its first time. It was "Rooster."
Today, the last day of the tour I was invited by Jerry Cantrell to perform "Rooster" on stage with them in front of thousands of people and I was about as happy as a tornado in a trailer park! I felt like I was a beneficiary of the make a wish foundation or something. Hell I also sang Man in the box with their techs during sound check.
Alice in Chains was kind enough to bring us out on this tour and what an exclamation point to put on the end of the 5 weeks we've done together!
After all they've endured as a band and as people, they came out the other end a monstrous band as well as considerate characters and today I was again blessed by there generosity! What a day! Here is a photo of my warming up on one of Jerry's older guitars.
I also saw them perform
What a great story, and I am so happy to see all the success that Jeff is getting with Walking Papers, if you haven't picked up their record yet...do so, it's an awesome album.
Ellen Degeneres is the Most Likeable Woman in Hollywood, according to a recent survey. Ellen got 35.1% of the vote, followed by Jennifer Lawrence with 17.7% and Emma Stone with 13.4%. Rounding out the Top 5 were Jennifer Hudson with 12.5% and Zooey Deschanel with 8.5%.
I 100% agree with this, as this morning both Toppy & I had to come clean with our love for Ellen. One day she somehow came up during a conversation off air, and both of our wives watch the show, and when it’s on we both watch it and like it. Within minutes of admitting to this, look at what someone Tweeted us…Too Funny!
Based on this…finish this sentence… “I know I shouldn’t like _____, but I do!” Here are the texts we got:
