    I hope they “Ride The Wind” down here to Florida!

      Did you move to Florida? I thought that you lived in Brooklyn. If you did move to Florida from Brooklyn then good for you because this is the nastiest worst winter in the history of mankind. Theres ice and filth and it’s like – 5 all the time. So you know what, good for you. Enjoy the Sunshine State. The toll collectors wear nice shirts in that state, not quite a twisted sister with Dio on the back but still pretty good. Not to reprise the unpleasant past but the artist formerly known as MILK MONEY does in fact live in Tampa and is one of the numerous Hulk Hogan impersonators that they have in that area. I wish there were a market for Ted Kennedy look a likes but nothing so far. Oh well.

      Almost 2 years ago already. Love central FL, in the middle of everything! Tuesday I’m at the HRHC in the good Hollywood to see Bad Company! Hey, what can I say? I “Live For The Music!” 😉 I was just up in NY for Christmas/New Year’s and the NHL Winter Classic. It was nice to be back in the “New York Groove” with Ace, even though I froze my ass off! Just 1 of many reasons why I moved to Florida! Next Sunday, Daytona for the 500!
      Hulk Hogan? LOL!!! Have a good one, brother, rock on, paisan! Cheers!!

    How about a new cd from Poison? A good one. They really have not put out that much music compared to Cheap Trick. Its really funny in Lita Fords new book she (writes) she punched Bret Michaels and kind of made fun of the band. haha


    • Doug R. on

      Lita punched Bret because she was jealous of his hair! LOL!!!


    • RTunes68 on

      I’m sure Bret saw the irony in a two-hit wonder making fun of his band.


    • Doug on

      Agree on Poison not putting out anything in like forever. At least Cheap Trick and Pop Evil are doing their part!


  • DR Is Live on

    Please tell me Poison is opening for Cheap Trick.


    • mike monet on

      At this stage of the game both of those artists have to leave their egos behind. Poison may be the headliner simply because their greater success was more recent. Poison was more successful in the late 80s whereas cheap trick had greater success in the late 70s and early 80s.. regardless of opening acts and Headliners, it’s still a great night of music. I’ve seen treat Cheap Trick 4 times and all 4 were as an opening act. So Cheap Trick is a great opening act. There’s nothing wrong with that. Maybe Jimmy Page can steal a riff from them? It worked out fairly well the first time. Do you think there’s some nut out there that won’t go to something like this because they’re insulted that Cheap Trick has to open for Poison? Do they still make the Rock t-shirts where the opening act goes on the back of the shirt and the headliner is on the front? I haven’t seen one of those in a while. How about poison opens the show but they go in the back of the T-shirt? Is that fair? Does anybody remember the great Dio being on the back of a Twisted Sister t-shirt? The stay hungry tour. Twisted Sister was always great especially around this time but Dio is arguably the best ever. Needless to say I’ll near one of the venues and I’m definitely going to check it out.

    Wow that was a lot. We uncovered some emotions there. Just…a lot.

    Essentially Poison really sucks and Cheap Trick are legends. So yes my original sarcasm aside as I knew Poison was the headliner, Cheap Trick is the far better band and paying a Poison ticket price to see 40mins of Cheap Trick is not going to happen.

    I am glad though that Rikki is cancer free these days. He’s a good guy.

    Speaking of good guys did you ever hear Robin Zander’s vocals on Jake E Lee’s Red Dragon Cartel debut? Absolute killer. Bret Michaels couldn’t touch it.
