David Coverdale sent this message out today, which is sort of nice. “The Purple Tour” release (in all its forms) have been delayed until January 19.

Good to know that it is coming though.

Always had a soft spot for Lynda Carter. Here is the Glorious 70s 2018 Calendar.

It is nice to see that Glenn Hughes has done so well in recent years. He is multi talented so it should not come as a surprise. US publication Bass Player (January 2018).

Watch the video for the BCC track “The Last Song For My Resting Place” here.

Got Rock´n´Roll (issue) 1 2018 in the mail a few days ago. Wonderful Swedish publication if you enjoy your nostalgia. One of the best features is that they let a rock star talk about old albums (see picture) and in this issue we have Joey Tempest chatting away about classic stuff from years gone by. This series has been going on for a while and I swear that the artists are smiling on every picture, clearly enjoying themselves as they do this. Well it is a good idea and perhaps other publications out there could nick it?

Good job chaps.

Still riding high

Posted: December 12, 2017 in Babymetal, Classic Rock, General

Babymetal are doing well. “Metal Resistance” sits at # 10 at the Billboard 2017 World Albums Chart (it climbed to # 3 last year), and if you study the charts you will see that they have been riding high since 2014.

This bodes well for the next release.

Commando 5079

Here is an exclusive preview of Commando (issue) 5079, “Brothers” (due out in the UK on December 14). Story by Colin Watson, inside art by Castro & Morhain and cover art by Ian Kennedy.

So, we have almost managed to get through 2017. Part of me is almost a bit surprised, but hey, 2018 is coming up so maybe the worst can still happen? I mean, what with the increased earthquake/volcano activities, the Ozone depletion, Planet X, the chemtrailing, alleged dark players being outed, everybody totally freaking out about North Korea and other possible theaters of war… I can see why some are talking about heading out to the hills. I used to be ahead of the pack, now people are stacking up supplies like crazy, preparing for the worst. Good for them. Not hard to see that things have changed. Actually, prepping went mainstream this year and we are told to have supplies for at least 72 hours. Also, the way things are going with the economy, the likelyhood of us getting a good pension at the end of the day is slim to none. So you need to think ahead, for real. UFO disclosure? Not in our lifetime.

On the other hand, maybe 2018 will be good fun, peaceful, educational. Maybe ÖFK will continue their sensational winning streak (Arsenal coming up next), maybe Jens Ganman will be offered the job as top dog over at SVT (please God, let that happen now!) and maybe we will have some really nice concerts, albums, films, television shows and books to look out for. Maybe things will be quite normal. Until 2019. There will always be a chance that 2019 will be it.

Is he serious I hear you say? Maybe I am. Maybe I just enjoy being a grumpy old dude.
