The Rockstar Ramblings: Day Drinking

This week’s videos give us a classic bar scene and the possible return of the movie Cobra.

Cinderella guitarist Jeff LaBarr has released a video for the song “No Strings” which will appear on his new solo album ‘One For The Road.’ The video begins with a bar scene during the day with LaBarr sitting at the bar. LaBarr is smoking so much I feel like I’m watching an episode of Mad Men. A girl is in the background (because blondes ALWAYS hang out alone at bars during the day). They hit it off (based on love of day drinking alone) and then we fast forward to a pool table setting where LaBarr is putting the “let me show you how to shoot that shot” move and is rejected. Next: FIGHT and the middle finger – she is really pissed! “You bastard, how dare you tell me how to shoot a bank shot!” Not sure how far into the future we jump, but now a ring is dramatically tossed onto the pool table followed by a pool hall guitar solo to clear his head. He moves on quickly, hitting on the bartender in minutes. They leave to find another bar – there is still plenty of day drinking to be had…

Next up, Roxie 77 recently premiered their first video, “The Solution.” I wish every video displayed all lyrics. Note: Just kidding, please do not display lyrics in videos.

Bullet is back and have released the first single and video from the title of their upcoming new album ‘Storm of Blades.’ CHAINS, MOTORCYCLES and KNIVES – Is this the return of the Sylvester Stallone classic ‘Cobra?’ Sadly I don’t think so, but the video does have fire, sledgehammers and guitars if that is your thing. Also, it is unfortunate there are no “You’re the disease, I’m the cure” lyrics…

David brother, what about an SOS on Cinderella? maybe its been done already, I'm pretty off the back

anyhow, just watched "Nobody's Fool" for the first time since I seen it on Mtv back as a kid...man, that is one of the most fvcked up videos ever :)

the Euro twins in their sh!t lady bug ride, the dudes all decked out in leathers and studs with big poofy hair, and of course the pouty siren in classic style; the epitome of senseless 80's vid production....ya gotta fvckin love it ;)

As cheesy as the videos are, its still solid music \m/

NP---Gypsy Road---Eeee, I think we're in Honduras bro :)
