ROBERT PLANT TO RELEASE A SOLO ALBUM

93X

Okay I can't wait for this new album from Robert!! What's puzzling me is what the title of the album is gonna be. I was reading that it was called "Tribes" and now it's "Mighty Rearranger", though "Mighty Rearranger" was the 1st title I had heard it was gonna be. So the question is what's it gonna be named?

Billy Idol Advice

Billy was a guest on four Canadian radio stations on March 25th


Billy was dressed in black & was wearing
one of his favourite colognes, L’Ombre dans L’eau.
He was in great spirits & received many comments about
how well he was looking.
Of course one of the questions he was asked is
‘what had he been doing for the last 10 years’, to which he replied…
‘masturbating!’ in a very deep voice, which of course prompted
lots of laughter.
He also mentioned that he had had a couple of children
& that his son was in his own band now, called Lucas.
Asked if he had any advice to them, or other kids starting out in the music business,
Billy replied that they must always be
‘true to themselves’ & always ‘play from the heart’


Just like Billy to tell it like it is....once a punk always a punk!

Led Zeppelin's rocking legacy

Led Zeppelin's rocking legacy

There are bands that have rocked harder and faster, but none can measure up to the gods of rock and roll: Led Zeppelin. Jimmy Page’s classically trained guitar playing, Robert Plant’s vocal and lyrical skills, John Paul Jones’s bass and John Bonham’s drums have been influential to countless bands throughout the years.



Ooh yeah, but we knew this much :) Zep rules!!

If you go to the link, you will see a drawing of the boys....I have to say whoever drew this didn't get an "A" for trying to draw Robert...I mean pleeeeeease, Robert doesn't look like THAT!! He did do a good job on John Paul Jones. Bonzo looks too chinese and Jimmy well doesn't look quite like Jimmy....why am I picking on this drawing, um because I've seen much better drawings, but it does represent them except for Robert of course doesn't look nothing like that!! Maybe it was just a joke?? LOL!!

Plant Feeling 'Mighty' with Strange Sensation

Yahoo! News - Plant Feeling 'Mighty' with Strange Sensation

LONDON (Billboard) - Robert Plant will release his first album for Sanctuary, "Mighty Rearranger," on April 25 in the U.K. North American release plans are not yet finalized, according to a Sanctuary spokesperson.

Credited to Plant and his current band the Strange Sensation, "Mighty Rearranger" is his first studio work since 2002's "Dreamland." The first U.K. single from the riff-laden 12-track set is "Shine It All Around."


I heard the album was going to be called "Tribes". I know with "Dreamland" it had another title "Head First" before it morphed into "Dreamland"

Lucky U.K. get it before us, but that's to be expected. Let's hope we don't have to wait long to get our piece of Robert :)

British Very Musical

What's your favourite thing about the UK?

DebbieHarry: Oh God, I don't know. If there's one thing, it's the musical nature of the British. In America people don't sit around in bars and sing, but I've been in pubs all over the UK where people just break into song. British people are very musical. It's a great tradition.

That's sounds so cool....your sitting having a drink or beer and then everyone starts singing some cool Zep song, LOL. I would love to go to an English Pub!! Sounds like fun :)

Picture This Debbie Harry Bungee Jumping Topless

Archive > Press > Magazines > Now: "DH: I did a bungee jump at the end of a very long and stressful tour. I bungee-jumped topless and it was completely refreshing. It was in Auckland, New Zealand, and it was big. I'd probably do it again if you got me in the mood, but I wouldn't say it was the most sane thing I've ever done."

I can imagine it must of felt exciting and scary....feel the wind all over you. Wonder how many people witness this.
I know Debbie was crazy in her early years, seeing her on stage she was like a wild woman sometimes.

Pulse of the Twin Cities - Redefining classic rock

Pulse of the Twin Cities - Locally Grown Alternative Newspaper: "Just as there�s a perfect moment to throw on a Drake tune, open a nice bottle of wine and lay back in a tub fulla bubbles, there�s also a perfect moment to throw on a pair of shorts, crack the top on a cheap brew, sit on the stoop and crank out Billy Squier�s �Lonely Is The Night.� Or Zep�s �Nobody�s Fault But Mine.� "

He looks so much like his father! Same posture and mannerisms, course Robert at the same age was even more beautiful IMO :)

These are the dates on Pollstar for the Black Crowes. They're hitting the stage to see if the "vibe" is still there and possibly more dates will be added elsewhere. I must presume that the Crowes expect to sell out the hammerstein Ballroom with so many show listed thus far. I saw the Crowes on their last tour in '02 in Providence, they sure did ROCK!!! So New Yorkers will def get a treat :)

PINK FLOYD'S DARK SIDE - BEST ALBUM OF ALL TIME

PINK FLOYD'S DARK SIDE - BEST ALBUM OF ALL TIME

This is pretty cool. Dark Side is my fave Pink Floyd album. But being a Led Zep fan foremost, I can't help but noticed that Zep also has 2 albums in the top 10 as does Floyd and the Beatles....hmm something about those Brits!!

ROBERT PLANT WANTS TO PROMOTE NEW ALBUM IN A 'ROOTSY' WAY

The Robert Plant Homepage

Plant, composed all the lyrics for the new album and says that he found himself putting special care into the words he chose. He said, "I've put myself in without exposing myself like in one of those songs where the guy's always upset and nobody loves him."

This I like....can you say the band Staind , talk about a guy that feels sorry for himself.

Zep Tribute Bands

Welcome to the Abbotsford Times - On Line - Showtime

The originals themselves hail them as the best Led Zeppelin tribute band in the world. Michael White and the White, acknowledged as the best by both Robert Plant and Jimmy Page, will return to Abbotsford to continue their Zeppelin discography series tonight.

Now that's a cool endorsement! I wonder what the top (5) Zep tribute bands would be? I've never been lucky enough to see not even one!

Yahoo! News - Kid Rock Uninvited To Bush Bash

Yahoo! News - Kid Rock Uninvited To Bush Bash


Kid Rock has reportedly been uninvited to perform as part of the festivities surrounding the second inauguration of George W. Bush.
conservative and "pro-family" groups were outraged that Rock, known for his raunchy and "obscene" lyrics, was reportedly going to perform.

Aha, and we must be so politically correct all the time...yawn...boring!

What would you rather be doing?:
watch and see all the fellas lay their money down


Describe where you live:

Ashlee Simpson Who Likes Her

Ashlee Simpson had wanted to start 2005 with a clean slate, but as her first appearance of the new year demonstrated, not everyone is as eager to put her"SNL" snafu behind her as she is. You'd think being booed in such a public forum as the Orange Bowl would be traumatic, but the singer/actress insists she's unfazed.

LOL, I have to laugh at this. I really can't stand this girl/singer/poser/wannabe I don't even like her sister, I think they both are over-rated.

What Does Robert Plant Love The Most

WHEN asked during a 1998 TV interview whether he preferred sex, drugs or rock and roll, Robert Plant, lead singer of the rock group Led Zeppelin, replied without a moment's hesitation: 'Football'. http://newpaper.asia1.com.sg/sports/story/0,4136,80898,00.html

Ha!! I know men love sports, well a lot of men do, there is the few exceptions out there. But really Robert prefers a football over women?? This can't be, my dreams are shattered! He'd rather watch or play with a football? Isn't it a soccerball anyhow in England? In anycase, I'm not a real sports fanatic, but if Robert were to ask me to go with him to watch a game, I'm sure I'd grab my coat in an instant :)

Slash Doll

KnuckleBonz has announced that they are now taking pre-orders for the SlashGuitar Hero™ limited edition sculpture at http://www.guitarhero.net/.The sculpture will display the artist with his trademark Gibson® Les Paul and his top hat.Only 3000 Slash figures will be created and pre-ordering is the best way tomake sure you get one. The hand painted, numbered figurine is displayed onan attractive wooden base with a price tag of $99.

How cool is that? I love the idea of rock dolls. I'm hoping that they might make a Jimmy Page doll too, why not he should have been the 1st one that they should have contacted to have a replica of himself made. Though I would like the kind of doll that you can pose and change his outfits, LOL, kind of like a Ken doll. They should also start making frontmen, ooh what I wouldn't give for a Robert Plant doll.

Jimmy Page 61

Slap me silly, I got so carried away yesterday with this blog and forgot to wish Jimmy Page a happy birthday....oh my!!

I still can't believe he is in his 60's, looks pretty good and is the only 60 something guy that I would want to do anything with. Imagine being that old and having tons of girls of all ages drooling still.

Jimmy forgive me....but Happy Belated Birthday to the one and only "magic fingers of the electric guitar". Robert Plant said that once, the part about magic finger of the electric guitar or something along those lines, but I forget what concert (boot) it was. Does anyone know?

Update to Rock News Page

I've updated the Rock News page at Mystic Rock. http://www.mysticrock.net/rocknroll.html
Put up this week's lyrics and top ten modern rock tracks. I must say I do like that Green Day "boulevard of broken dreams" something about it. I'm not really into the "new" punk rock. I did like the old school punk bands, but mostly the ones with a full sound as opposed to the real garagy sound.

Classic Bands That Come To Mind

In the world of Classic Rock when you think of all the cool bands that make up this category of music the 1st ones that come to mind right away to me are Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, The Doors, Black Sabbath, The Who, The Rolling Stones, and Jimi Hendrix, after that then I think about the other bands like AC/DC, Creem, Queen, Bad Company etc....speaking of which Paul Rodgers singing Queen songs?? I just can't picture it, I mean Paul has a nice soulful voice, but hardly a Freddy Mercury. I'm really curious as to what they will sound like, especially Paul trying to sing some of Freddy's songs. What about when they go on tour, Paul doesn't have the stage presence that Freddy had, so it will be interesting to see how everyone views this tour.

Closeouts

So I'm working on getting a sales and clearance category to our shopping catalog. Making way for more new items. So people can get some band tees at a pretty good discount. Here is a link to our shopping catalog:
http://www.mysticrock.net/Catalog.html

What makes these tees a good deal is that they are a great price and brand new, not a t-shirt that you would find most likely at your thrift shop or 2nd hand store. Bands like Metallica, Mudvayne, Marilyn Manson, Slipknot to name a few.

Babydoll Girly Tees

Today I'm loading to the website Mystic Rock http://www.mysticrock.net some new babydoll girly t-shirt that we just got in from Liquid Blue. These are cute little tops for girls generally from a size small to a large. What's nice about them is that they fit a girl's body when you don't want to have a loose big t-shirt. Don't get me wrong I like the regular t-shirts too, it's just that these smaller tees look quite sexy on girls and you can still show the world who rocks your world :)......who rocks your world??
