I’ve had a fly in my apartment now for several days. All my attempts to squash this little irritating winged beast have failed. I’ve even been leaving my apartment door open in hopes he would fly away, but no! He greets me when I wake up, when I’m in the bathroom, in the kitchen, and right now he’s buzzing me while I am typing. I CAN’T TAKE IT! Feeling like a character in a Kafka book…Black Stone Cherry posted a “thank you” video on their Facebook telling fans this hardDrive Live Tour was their best tour ever!

He took his Ice Bucket Challenge to the next level with this (which includes Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel & Pat Smear, but no Shifty Shiflett?) Can’t wait for new Foo Fighters music. Dunno why they are being so tight-lipped about the single and when it’s coming but there ya go. Eddie Vedder, Duff McKagan and Corey Taylor have also done their own ice water bathing. Wonder where this will all end?….Congrats to Like A Storm and Rev Theory who just signed to the Another Century label, which was founded by the former head of Century Music. Hearing good things about the new Rev Theory, another former hardDrive Live Tour band, too! ….Happy 66th today to Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin fame. Fred Durst of Limp Bizkit is 44.
