        George Thorogood and the Destoyers In Concert - Nashville, TN - Wildhorse Saloon - 3-20-2012

        George Thorogood and the Destroyers returned to Nashville, TN to perform at the Sold-Out Wildhorse Saloon.  Nashville classic rock radio station 105.9 The Rock presented this show and they did their job well.  When the doors opened, there were only 90 tickets left and before the opening act was finished, the show was completely Sold-Out, which made for a great show!

        Concert Blast was invited to review this concert so Mike Arnold, Tom Thompson, and old Concert Blast friend, Michael Fulghum, gave their thoughts on the review during this audio podcast.

                    When I think of Adam Lambert I think of someone who is an extremely talented vocalist, heavily involved in charity work that is close to his heart, and someone who isn’t afraid to be himself.  I was all too excited when I found out that I would be able to write a blog for Concert Blast at a private Adam Lambert event being held by the radio station 107.5 The River in Nashville, Tennessee and sponsored by Direct Auto Insurance.

                        Heavy Metal rocker Ozzy Osbourne described many details of his life in his autobiography from his very poor childhood days of being bullied by classmates and teachers, through his prison experience, how he joined a band, the days with Black Sabbath, multiple addictions, his solo career, his family’s MTV show, starting Ozzfest, and many other aspects of his life.

                            I just learned that a member of one of my all time favorite bands, The Monkees, passed away today.  Davy Jones died of a heart attack today Feb 29, 2012 in Florida. He was 66 years old. I never had the chance to see The Monkees together as a band but I did get to see Davy several times as a solo act.  His shows were always fun and his voice always sounded in top shape.

                                I have always said what an incredibly hard job it is to produce a show like the Grammys that tries to cover all the bases of what is out there in popular music today While the 54th Grammys was a very “classic” leaning show, there were lots of styles and variations included that gave it a well-rounded feel, almost to a fault – but more on that later. Really, it all comes down to this. When you open a show with “The Boss,” Bruce Springsteen, and end it with Paul McCartney, does anything else in the middle matter much?
