Amazing Cover Songs: Your Mama Don’t Dance by Poison

Let me start off by boldly and fearlessly stating that I’m not a poison fan by any stretch of the imagination. However, I have no problem admitting that Brett Michaels has an amazing voice.

I’m tickled at their version of this class I rock oldie. I even like it better than the original version. Let me give credit where credit…

Greatest One Hit Wonders of Rock: “Safety Dance” by Men Without Hats

I don’t care what you say. This song has it’s place in everyone’s “guilty pleasure” list. The 80’s was a huge source for one hit wonders and this song is iconic! I don’t remember much about Men without Hats. But I can’t forget the album art and the lyrics to this song. It’s one of those songs where everyone knows…

Rock Music Documentaries: Journey Behind the Music

I’ve been fortunate enough to see Journey in concert only once in my life. A dear friend of mine took me to see Journey with Loverboy and Pat Benater for my birthday.

Kiss is as…

If the 80s can be considered the decade of decadence, Boy George certainly proved that to be true. As a…

Top Ten Styx Songs of All Time

Ahh…a band close to my own heart…..I’m a huge fan of the “Arena Rock” bands from the 70’s and early 80’s. Most who know me are well aware of my infatuation with classic rock. But the truth is, it’s the arena rock bands from the classic rock genre that strike my fancy. It may have something to…

Amazing Cover Songs: Anarchy in the UK by Megadeth

Well…maybe this isn’t one of Megadeth’s most loved songs. It does seem more than a bit unlike their previous albums. Yet…not many can remake a song from “The Sex Pistols”- not well anyway. Some might think a good cover song should include a band’s own style. That may be true in some situations but I will always maintain that a…
