If I were offered an opportunity to spend five days in Vegas with the likes of Jefferson Starship, Journey, Free, Bryan Adams, Supertramp, Toto, Deep Purple, Queen and more It would be like I died and went to Rock and Roll heaven
It's summer. And time for the out door concert series to begin. This is not Woodstock. But the line up at Bonnaroo is incredible. So get out the sleeping bags, and the small campers, the tents and the bottles of water because a lot of people are on the road as the summer out door festival's series has begun
So you have that famous ticket to that favorite Rolling Stones Concert. And it's autographed. Or that tee shirt, or poster, or picture, or even a concert poster that is signed by one or all of the Rolling Stones
Got a Stones autograph? Tee shirt, album, cd, ticket, photo? I'm sure you're sitting in your house going "I got a Rolling Stones autograph and I'm selling that sucker on E Bay. And I'm going to make a lot of money
As part of my rock history past I was an adamant fan of Buffalo Springfield. The band was the precursor of so many other off shoots Crosby Still Nash and Young being one them not to mention the band Poco who I was lucky enough to spend time with when I booked them out in the rodeo arena at the fairgrounds one rainy Saturday night

Now a days with the prevalence of smart phones there seems like there is an app for everything. From banking, dating, to sports, to losing weight even interviewing for jobs. Now one of American's foremost rock icons have launched their own app so as to allow fans to access their entire music library, interactive content, videos even an extended history of the band
The Rolling Stones are filling arenas and concert venues across America on their 50'th year celebration. With the ability to purchase cannabis products pretty much over the counter in a number of states it seems a little silly now that the Rolling Stones were arrested and potentially could have been sentenced to a lengthy prison sentence
So lets say you started a band. You wanted to be the lead singer. Hires some of your friends...worked you're but off to get really good. Became stars. Went to rehab. Went to rehab again. Almost died and went to rehab again
If there is one thing that I get to take to the grave it's the fact I lived my teen years during one of the greatest rock bands in history's legacy. Just a punk kid working at a 1,000 watt am radio station the music of the Yardbirds was incredible but the music of Led Zeppelin was unmatchable
