The Rockstar Ramblings: Bret Michaels, Fired!

It has been a while since I’ve wasted precious time watching Donald Trump’s Celebrity Apprentice, but when I heard both Bret Michaels (Poison) and Dee Snider (Twisted Sister) would be contestants, well, I was in. Both had appeared in previous versions of the series, Michaels winning and Snider not. Last time, Michaels went to great lengths to secure his victory, staging a brain hemorrhage just weeks before the finale. That’s good acting Bret! As for Dee, I’m just hoping he doesn’t bring his family into this. More...

The Rockstar Ramblings: Scary Video

Rock and roll and horror movies are often a natural match. This week we have a very low budget video from The Deafening that incorporates the evil and shock of horror into their video. The video is their first ever and is for the song "Death Rattle N' Roll.” This is the finale track on their late 2012 release titled 'Central Booking.' Based in New York, The Deafening, are made up of Lena Hall (vocals), Burt Rock (guitar), Dylan Doyle (bass) and Mick Harrison (drums). The band mixes the seventies and eighties in both sound (and now) video exploits. More...

The Rockstar Ramblings: Video Marathon

This week a real treat with (lucky) seven new videos featuring girls with cranium accessories, vampires, F-bombs, and of course, sass.

Ten's video for their single “Gunrunning” is from their new anticipated studio album entitled 'Heresy And Creed.' I can dig the black and white and the groovy sound (dig and groovy in the same sentence – yes, I’m high right now), but not so sure about the Michael Jackson style marching jacket. Also, the awkward lean into the guitar player makes me feel weird down there…
