Thin Lizzy - Fall Concert Series

Posted by Artster63

Welcome back everyone. We're excited to throw down this week with an awesome 70's classic rock group, Thin Lizzy. The tunes of this group ring in my ears stepping me into a time of headphones blasting and me performing both air guitar and air drums in a one-man show with a very high-spirited audience of one... myself.


Get the ice bucket filled and the headphones properly placed as we get down with one of the early gems from Ireland's submissions into the hard rock arena. I personally, though a little rusty, will be jammin' as I did back then with nothin' but... air.


Now, when you're ready hit play and slip away. Enjoy.

Black Sabbath - Fall Concert Series

Posted by Artster63


Welcome back people to 70's Classic Rock's Fall Concert Series. On the main stage this week we have the phenomenal Black Sabbath. Front man, Ozzy, shows us what all those "mind altering supplements" can really do for you. I tried wailing my head like that for about 15 seconds and got a splitting headache. Rock on Ozzy.

Now, without further adieu let's show some love for Ozzy, Tony, Bill and Geezer otherwise known as Black Sabbath.

When you're ready hit play and slip away. Enjoy.

Peace.

Led Zeppelin - Fall Concert Series

Posted by Artster63


What's up people? Artster is back and has just pressed the "play" button on the ol' VCR. I've got the Zep in mind to start our "Weekend Concert Series". Full, live concerts every weekend to get you back to a more chilled state of mind.

Today we present "Led Zeppelin - Live at Knebworth Festival (August 11,1979)". One of my favorite Zep shows after their historical The Song Remains the Same Tour of course. Spark up the incense, draw the shades and grab a brew because this will slip you back in time to a more chilled and mellow state. Get your chores and errands out of the way because if you're like me, I was in a trance for a few... hours afterwards.

When you're ready, hit play and slip away. Enjoy.

Peace.

Led Zeppelin - Celebration Day

Posted by Artster63


As you may have heard, Led Zeppelin has been posting on their Facebook and Twitter about a huge announcement coming today.


On December 10, 2007, Led Zeppelin took the stage at London’s O2 Arena to headline a tribute concert for dear friend and Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun. What followed was a two-hour-plus tour de force of the band’s signature blues-infused rock ’n’ roll that instantly became part of the legend of Led Zeppelin. Founding members John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant were joined by Jason Bonham, the son of their late drummer John Bonham, to perform 16 songs from their celebrated catalog including landmark tracks “Whole Lotta Love,” “Rock And Roll,” “Kashmir,” and “Stairway To Heaven.”



The film of Celebration Day will see a worldwide theatrical release by Omniverse Vision on 1,500 screens in over 40 territories on October 17. The theatrical screenings will follow premieres in London, Los Angeles, New York, and other major cities. Tickets for the public screenings will be available on September 13 via ledzeppelin.com.

Where were you on 9-11-01? (Reposted 9-11-08)

Posted by Artster63

On this day of the 11th Anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, I'm taken back to that morning at work, when a broadcaster broke into my morning music announcing that a commercial airliner crashed into the World Trade Center. Raising the volume so I wouldn't miss a detail of the report, I was able to pickup the anxiousness in the speakers voice.


We immediately turned on a small tv someone had in their office and the 20 or so employees all assembled around to view the live report. Gasps, cries and prayers filled the small office as the second plane was shown crashing into the other tower. An uncomfortable lump in my throat traveled down to the pit of my stomach where it sat all day.

Time stopped. Life stopped for those few days after the attacks. A variety of emotions surfaced. Anger, distrust and worry turned to supportive, unity and good 'ole American pride.
Here's a selection of videos that stir different emotions for me, but in the end the strength of the message rings clear as only The Who can play it.


Where were you that morning?
