Classic Rock Weekend Trip

Posted by Artster63

This week I'm getting back to sharing some great sites I've come across. For you die hard classic rock pros, here's a few stops for today's roadtrip. So fill up the tank, pack a lunch bag and let's go cruising.

Pink Floyd Fandom is a well thought out and organized site for the true Floyd fan. Plenty of news and information to follow up on. You can participate in the site by registering, which allows you to post messages, participate in the forum and even obtain an "" email address.

With the latest tour info, videos/books, pix and a store focusing strictly on Floyd memorabilia, this is definitely worth a pull over and check it out stop on today's drive.

For you Van Halen buds, here's the latest word from Monique at American Pop.


I’m working with Live Nation to get the word out about one of the most legendary rock bands of all time returning to the live stage with an extraordinary 20 North American Tour. Van Halen, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees, will begin their tour on February 18th, with special performances from Kool & The Gang on select tour dates.

Van Halen debuted the first single, “Tattoo” off their new album, A Different Kind of Truth, set to release on February 7th. This is their first original studio album with singer David Lee Roth since the band’s classic multi-platinum album, 1984.

Additional concert information located on our social media release here: Van Halen American Tour 2012

So if you're a fan, definitely check out the tour dates for a concert near you.

We're going to make a pit stop to visit one of the greatest blues guitarists of all time. That's right Stevie Ray Vaughan is from big 'ol Texas and just north of San Anton in Austin is the SRV Monument. Now we can visit his tribute website any old time, but the Austin riverfront is definitely a Sunday afternoon must do.

Here's a link to a great little article Metblogs: Austin. Be sure to read up on it before we stop. Please don't be, (like the Brunette), asking me questions when I'm trying to sink into the reverence of the occasion. Thanks.

Ahhh, great times on the cruise this week. Here's a little chit-chat for the ride home. Vinyl records. The smell. The clingy saran wrap that wouldn't let go of your hand as you flung it about. The awesome pix in the center of the "double album" sets. So what you say, well I'm getting to it. I recently heard from Mark over at He wants to share with you vinyl die hards an option to getting your hands on new and classic albums. They cover just about every genre you can imagine and some I've never heard of before. They specialize in hard-to-find LPs, so if you've searching and searching bu just can't find that favorite album, drop by Vinyl Searchers and see what they can do for you.

Alright we're back. Hey thanks to you all for taking the cruise with us. We'll be doing more cruising in the upcoming weeks to share some great info and sites with you. Be sure to subscribe to our feed to be sure you don't miss anything. Also, keep an eye out for the "Concert Series" returning. The amphitheater behind the house has been remodeled and we'll be looking forward to the masses visiting and digging the classic rock line ups.

The big plan is to replay, one of the greatest concerts I've ever attended, The Super Bowl of Rock - Game III
. I'm talking about every detail down to the set lists and milk jugs. We'll keep you posted.

Hey guys have a good one and Peace.
