The Eagles’ Lineup for Classic East & West Shows is Complete

  • 9:00 am Thursday, June 1st, 2017 by Denise Ryan

Finally everyone’s talking!

Don Henley confirmed a few weeks ago that Deacon Frey, Glenn Frey’s 24 year old son, would be helping fill the big shoes left behind by the death of Glenn Frey last year.

After seeing Deacon perform some of his dad’s songs at a private memorial last year, Don Henley said then that “If there’s ever going to be a gig for all of us, I would want Deacon to be part of it.”

But when he officially announced that Deacon would be joining them, Henley also said someone else would be going out with them too.

Billy Joel Has Axl Rose as Special Guest in LA

  • 7:52 am Monday, May 15th, 2017 by Denise Ryan

Billy Joel played Dodger Stadium in LA Saturday night and Axl Rose joined him for a couple songs.

AC/DC’s “Highway to Hell” has kind of become a staple in Billy Joel concerts. Billy doesn’t sing it, someone else comes out for that while he’s on guitar.

This time that someone was Axl Rose. Considering Axl stepped in on tour last year with AC/DC when Brian Johnson was sidelined for hearing loss, Axl’s got this one down.

That was all well and good… then he came back.

During the encore, Axl returned for “Big Shot.”

How would your kids react to AC/DC?

  • 8:03 am Thursday, April 20th, 2017 by Denise Ryan

I can’t stop watching this!

These kids’ reactions are awesome – especially Sydney, age 9… she is my spirit child. One day I will have a child like her!

Not only do they react to the songs, they’re also shown a picture of Angus Young and they all chime in on his school boy outfit. So funny!

We learn a few things… AC/DC songs are universal, eeeeeverybody knows “Back in Black”,  and “Hell’s Bells” is kind of an acquired taste apparently.

So have a few good laughs and rock out with this….

Aerosmith Saying “Aero-Vederci” in Europe

  • 8:02 am Monday, November 14th, 2016 by Denise Ryan

Aerosmith just announced an extensive European tour for the summer of 2017.

That’s all well and good but I’m not liking the name of this tour… Aero-Vederci, as in a play on the Italian word for goodbye.

While their website is calling it a farewell tour, and that name does suggest the same… If you watch the video the Toxic Twins did for the “Aerosmith News Network” though, they don’t actually confirm anything about it being the last.

Steven Tyler asks in the video, “Any truth to the rumors that this could be the last hoorah?” Joe Perry responds with, “Who the hell [More]

TBT to the Last Time Bret Michaels Rocked DCS

  • 8:04 am Thursday, November 10th, 2016 by Denise Ryan

Let’s flashback to May 2013.

I had only been here in Orlando and at 98.9 WMMO a few months; it was my second Downtown Concert Series and it was a sellout!

The weather was just edging towards hot but that certainly didn’t stop people from coming out to rock with Bret Michaels.

People packed in as far as I could see down the street in front of the stage, you barely get through the crowd!

And boy, did he put on an awesome show! But what really surprised me was what a cool, genuinely nice guy he was! So excited to be there and [More]
