Monster Truck..The Band and other news.

Well I finally got a chance to look at my reading material for the last couple months. RUSH had been on the cover of Classic Rock magazine from the UK, so I went to the CR website and was surprised to see that the Classic Rock Roll of Honour was coming up for 2012. This years list of nominees for best new band include.

And Last but not least a group I will be watching Monster Truck

Albums worth taking a listen too, I was surprised.
If you like old style Big Band toons you might want to take a listen to this wonderful album. I only think about Seth as the man who does Family Guy and those things. He has a wonderful singing voice.
This new album by Lionel Richie has country flare. Each song has a different country artist singing with Lionel. People Like Blake Shelton, Willie Nelson, Jimmy Buffet and others give a new spin to the old tunes.
Recently Davy Jones passed away and I started thinking back on the fun music from the Monkeees. The Deluxe version of this album has features different versions of the songs not previously released and some other surprises. It’s fun to listen to old classics.
The new album from Shinedown is now getting worn out at my place. Hard to stop playing this one over and over, but then again I’ve found that to be the case with most of their music. If you haven’t checked it out yet, you should.
