                 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 2011 Induction Ceremony Written by Josh Jackson

                For the second year in a row I was invited to work as the script supervisor for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductions and of course, I obliged. I always love hearing my friends tell me to make sure to tell someone to induct __________ (insert favorite rock group) into the Hall. (Usually KISS or RUSH) I’m not sure exactly how the nominations go about, and while I have my own feelings about some of the great groups that have been left out (Eagles, Heart, Journey & oh so many more), I was fairly satisfied with this years group of inductees.

                    Written by Mike Arnold

                    While the concert-touring season has slowed down for the winter, I thought it would be nice to show our listening audiences what we went through in 2010.  I created multiple videos of our experiences with a month by month journey of our adventures.

                    Here’s Part 2 of our 2010 Concert Blast Posts.  This video takes you through the month of May as we covered the Memphis in May Beale Street Music Festival and more and then carries you through the first portion of the  month of June 2010.

                            The one question that is asked to us more than anything is, “When is the Concert Blast book coming out?”.  Now we can say Very Soon and now a preview is available for the public’s viewing through our signup list.  Since the book is now in the finishing stages, it seems at this point it is set for a Spring of 2010 release.

Ryan is a huge Cheap Trick fan and was super thrilled to have them on the tour.  Ryan also had his bandmate and friend, drummer Eric Singer (also the drummer for KISS) to join us for a quick hello.  Ryan is a very funny and friendly guy who appreciates where he ended up.  Ryan discussed touring with Alice Cooper, writing with Alice Cooper, his other project Roxie 77, his family, and many other topics.  Click the link and enjoy this podcast from 2005.
