    A true pioneer of rock-n-roll.

    Last night Tom Petty was found unconscious, not breathing, and in full cardiac arrest in critical condition at his Malibu home. After he got to the hospital he had no brain activity and a decision was made to pull life support. He was 66.

    He just wrapped a huge tour, ending at the Hollywood Bowl late last Monday.

    RIP

    10:30 am Monday a chaplain was called to the hospital room and he is not expected to live through the night. The family has a "do not resuscitate" order on Tom, but he's still clinging to life. The LAPD, confirming the singer's death, was wrong.

    Update: He passed away Tuesday at 8:40 PM PT at UCLA surrounded by friends, family and his bandmates.

    I considered going to see them this year..... until I saw the cost of tickets! It was an outdoor venue with a huge pavilion. It was $300.00 for the worst seats under the pavillion and $150.00 for "The Lawn" which totally sucks. Front row was $1,000 and up!.

    RIP Chuck Mosley, the original singer for Faith No More, has died. He was 57.

    A statement issued by Mosley's family: “After a long period of sobriety, Charles Henry Mosley III lost his life, on Nov. 9, 2017, due to the disease of addiction. We’re sharing the manner in which he passed, in the hopes that it might serve as a warning or wake up call or beacon to anyone else struggling to fight for sobriety."

    Garth Brooks admits to lip-syncing at the Country Music Awards this past weekend, but not when he was with KISS performing on the Tonight Show as today in 1976 the band's 5th album was released.

    "Hard Luck Woman" reached to #15 on Billboard 41 long years ago.

    What's sad is fans pay $200 for a ticket to see their favorite artist in concert and they are probably lip syncing to the audio track because they can't hit the notes like they used to. EDM (electronic dance music) is a perfect example. You have a Big name d.j. jumping up and down, twisting knobs and doing gestures to hype the crowd up but, All of that music is laid out and pre-recorded. 2 of the worst concerts were The Cars and Billy Idol. They couldn't hit the original note to save their lives. There are many artists that have been snagged lip syncing but when you are 20 rows back at a concert, can you see it?

    RIP Leon "Ndugu" Chancler, a veteran drummer with an impressive list of credits in jazz and R&B, passed away at 65.

    He went on to work with heavyweights like Frank Sinatra, Eric Clapton, Tina Turner, Lionel Richie, and received co-writing credits for three songs on Santana's 1976 album Amigos. But it was "Billie Jean", one of three songs on Michael Jackson's Thriller album on which he played. "P.Y.T." and "Baby Be Mine" were the other two.

    He also picked up a Best Rhythm & Blues Song Grammy nomination for helping to write "Let It Whip" by the Dazz Band.

    40 YEARS AGO TODAY VAN HALEN WAS BORN!

    Van Halen's debut album found Eddie Van Halen completely rewriting the vocabulary and rules of rock guitar while he and his bandmates nearly single-handedly saved classic rock from being overrun by punk and disco. Not a single moment of its 11 tracks is wasted, and in less than two minutes, the instrumental ‘Eruption’ took Eddie straight to the top of the rock guitar god list.

    Another one, Eddie Van Halen started his music career playing drums and Alex was playing guitar, They swapped and then that's when the magic happened. He picked up on Jimmy Page with the finger tapping and took it to another level, So much as to when he finger tapped the fret board, He would have his back to the audience so they couldn't copy his technique. Another one for you, "Eruption" was Eddie's warm up before he went on stage but when they recorded it in the studio, He messed it up and it was mastered with that flaw.
