The Bon Jovi/Sambora Feud is Going to Get Good

We’ve all heard the rumors that perhaps Jon Bon Jovi & Richie Sambora don’t see eye-to-eye anymore…and I think it’s going to get nasty soon.

Apparently, Jon said something along the lines that Richie Sambora isn’t like U2′s guitarist, The Edge, as the Edge is irreplaceable.

According to radaronline.com, Richie sent a terse, 3-word email back to Jon saying “Hire the Edge”.

This may become a great summer soap opera.

Premium Rush

Jennifer and I (because we’re done and over Des’ Bachelorette season already…she’s just so uninteresting…and I understand the hypocrisy of us enduring the entire Emily season (where nothing…NOTHING…happened, but we can’t sit through Des’ season?)…anyway, we watched the New York bike messenger movie “Premium Rush” last night, and it’s quite excellent. (Plus only like 90 minutes…perfect for a week night).

A Trifecta of Lists

There are three big groups droppin’ records today, so it’s a trifecta of lists!

Black Sabbath has a new album out today…their first in some 35 years! Right now, I’m reading “Louder Than Hell: The Oral History of Heavy Metal”…so I’m learning more and more about the Rock Gods.

 Black Sabbath (mid-1970s)

Top 7 Black Sabbath Songs

1. Children of the Grave

2. N.I.B.

3. Paranoid

4. War Pigs

5. Sweat Leaf

6. Sabbath Bloody Sabbath

Goo Goo Dolls

The Boys of Goo release “Magnetic” today as well. I wish I had quick access to the picture from when they were at the Fair many years ago (2000/2001ish?), and I completely freaked out Johnny Rzeznik by trying to put my arm around him in the picture. (Colleen found out in Hollywood Trash a few weeks later that he’s a bit of a germaphobe…and here I am, comin’ at him with arms open. Sorry about that).

Top 5 Goo Goo Dolls Songs

1. Flat Top

2. Iris

5. Here is Gone

The Lonely Island

Outside of Weird Al Yankovic, funny songs have been lacking for a long, long time…however, the boys of Lonely Island (Actor Andy Samberg’s group) are bringin’ it back.

1. Jack Sparrow (with Michael Bolton) – I love this song, and would post the video, but due to some NSFW lyrics…I can not. Go YouTube it though…I love the song.

Wanna Hear Something Awful?

http://youtu.be/20ccfjD4ZyQ

It’s an acoustic version of “Welcome to the Jungle”…as performed by the cover band that Axl Rose still calls Guns N’ Roses. (As you can clearly tell, I’m still bitter about their show at the Hilton Coliseum years ago).

AWESOME is as AWESOME does!
