Stainless Steel Classics

During a visit to the Western Reserve Historical Society Museum in Cleveland, Ohio I was very impressed by the Crawford Auto Aviation Collection they have on display there. The collection includes over 140 antique vehicles plus aircraft, motorcycles, bicycles, boats and carriages! For me some of the most unique vehicles they had there were 3 stainless steel bodied…

These Boots Are Made For Rockin’

In regards to live music, 2013 was a great year for me. The year started out with some gigs in Australia then when I came back to America I saw shows all over the country and even popped up to Toronto in Canada to catch some shows. The following are the major acts I saw…

Adam Ant – Blue Black Hussar Tour 2013

I was sitting there last night wondering where Adam Ant was currently touring in the US (as you do!) and discovered he was playing in 15 minutes just around the corner from me in Boston at the Royale! I quickly raced around there, got a ticket and I was not disappointed. I have only one thing to…

In the footsteps of The Blues Brothers

One of my favourite movies from the 1980’s is the cult classic The Blues Brothers. The movie was directed by John Landis and starred John Belushi as “Joliet” Jake Blues (John was born in Chicago in 1949. Sadly he died in Hollywood in 1982. Far too young at just 33) and Dan Akroyd (a Canadian born in Ottawa in 1952) as Elwood…

Hello Chicagoland!

After leaving Indianapolis, Brad my friend from Australia and I completed our 2 week road trip across the heartland of America which had started in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, crossing into Ohio and Indiana before ending in the “Windy City” of Chicago, Illinois (apart from a day trip to Milwaukee). So this is Part 6 of a series of photos of that journey showing cityscapes,…

Lizzy Borden – 30 Years of American Metal Tour 2013

I got to go back in time somewhat this week. The setting could have been 1985. On Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood, California hanging out in the famed bars and clubs of the strip such as The Rainbow Bar & Grill (alas no Lemmy) and Whisky a Go Go. These were the epicentre of LA metal back in the…

Batman and The Joker – 1989 style

The following pictures of Michael Keaton as Batman and Jack Nicholson as The Joker from a publicity photo shoot for the 1989 Tim Burton Batman movie recently surfaced on the internet. This is one of my favourite movies and the photos are a lot of fun!

Go ahead Walking Dead yourself!

I woke up feeling a bit ill this morning……. This was a bit of fun I came across online:  http://www.deadyourself.com. Yes thats me all zombified! The Walking Dead is a great (and grisly) AMC TV series about survival in a world taken over by zombies. The show premiered in 2010 and is now in it’s third season (it…

Wellington NZ = Middle of Middle Earth When it comes to movie making in New Zealand, Wellington is ground zero. The capital is the home base of Peter Jackson, Weta and many other production houses; and when it comes to the tales from J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle Earth, Wellington truly…

Scream for me Seattle!!! Iron Maiden’s Gonna Get You! \m/(>.<)\m/

I have loved the music of Iron Maiden since I was a teenager – soaring lyrics, powerful guitar riffs and beating drums are a call to arms for all Maiden fans. They led the charge of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM)  in the 1980’s and Iron Maiden are still going as strong as ever! I have seen…

Problem Child – For Those About To Rock (We Salute You)!

It has been a while since I last saw  AC/DC tribute band Problem Child (click the link for some of their live video), so I was really looking forward to getting my “Acca Dacca” fix at the Tractor Tavern on saturday night. Problem Child pay tribute to both the Bon Scott and Brian Johnson eras of AC/DC. Once again…
