Kid Rock Scalped His Own Tickets

Tuesday, April 16th, 2013

So if you’re a Kid Rock fan (you’re probably not reading this blog) but in an article today posted on MSN he goes into detail about scalping tickets to his own show on Stubhub.com for much more than face value.  He discusses the practice by also saying that other people are doing it.  Of course, other people beat their wifes, and murder puppies, and there was that teenage girl that got raped and killer herself so I guess other people do that too….so that rational I totally understand.  But here’s the thing for me.  If this is such a common practice why is he coming clean with it?  And why is he making up for it??

Kid Rock has lifted the lid on the shady practice of ticket re-sales in the  music industry, revealing he is guilty of “scalping” seats to his own shows.

The musician, who recently announced plans for a budget-friendly summer tour,  has confessed his team allegedly resold tickets to his concerts on exchange  website StubHub.com for more than their retail value. Rock made the confession  in an interview with TV host Piers Morgan, telling the presenter he fears many  others artists are making money in the same way.

Korn to Tour with Brian “Head” Welch

Thursday, April 4th, 2013

Brian “Head” Welch is going out on tour reunited with Korn. Rumor has it there are several festivals in the works as well. If you’re in one of the few areas they have scheduled it would be worth the trip to go see them!!

While a lot of people shunned Head because of his whole “Head To Christ” all about the Jesus thing, I actually dug it because the tunes were killers. And not only had the Korn vibe but the tunes were better than what was coming out of the Korn camp. I dunno call me silly. But check out the video below and judge for yourself.

05/15 Belle Vernon, PA – Ice Garden Arena
05/18 Big Flats, NY – The Summer Stage At Tags
05/21 Silver Springs, MD – The Fillmore
05/22 Montclair, NJ – The Wellmont Theatre
05/23 Bethlehem, PA – Sands Bethlehem Event Center
05/25 St. Louis, MO – Peabody

Alice In Chains Stories on Artist Direct

Tuesday, April 2nd, 2013

It’s been almost 11 years since Layne Staley died. And there is no denying what a huge impact Alice in Chains had on the music world. For me personally that was a dark time in music. Being a product of hot rod musicians from the 80’s then being smacked with Nirvana, it was Aic that carried me through that period. And I have to admit that Jerry had an impact on how I write songs today.

Well the dudes at Artist Direct posted a story yesterday featuring Korn, Slipknot, and several others all discussing Alice in Chains. It’s a great read and can be found HERE…………..
