Aerosmith’s First Tour Van Has Been “Picked”!

  • 8:51 am Thursday, August 9th, 2018 by Denise Ryan

Aerosmith’s first tour van was found rusting in a wooded area near Chesterfield, Mass, and “picked” on a recent episode of American Pickers by Mike Wolfe And Frank Fritz.

Now before you say, but how do they really know that belonged to Aerosmith?? Well they had to verify, of course!

The pickers worked their way around through connections to Aerosmith co-founding guitarist Ray Tabano who lives nearby and came out to see it and verify that it was the “real deal.”

Wolfe and Fritz paid $25,000 for the van, not sure what will happen to it now.

This episode of American Pickers first aired [More]

Paul McCartney’s appearance on “Carpool Karaoke” on The Late Late Show with James Corden has had over 130 million views between YouTube and Facebook.

They had a lot of material to work with for that segment too, much more than we got to see, so they’ve decided to put all that together for a one hour prime time special called Carpool Karaoke: When Corden Met McCartney Live [More]

A Feud or Not a Feud… That is the question.

  • 9:01 am Tuesday, August 7th, 2018 by Denise Ryan

Here’s the quick backstory in case you forgot… Ann Wilson’s husband assaulted Nancy Wilson’s teenage sons backstage at a show in 2016. They managed to finish that tour but they avoided contact with each other as much as possible and used separate dressing rooms for the first time in their career. Needless to say, they did not part on very good terms.

Since that tour ended, Ann and Nancy have been doing separate solo projects… both out on tours and Ann working on a new solo album.

So with all that background info, things have not been looking good [More]

WATCH: Toto Cover Weezer’s ‘Hash Pipe’

  • 7:46 am Wednesday, August 1st, 2018 by Denise Ryan

Well it all started with a fan trolling Weezer on social media to cover Toto’s “Africa.”

After trolling the fan right back by covering “Rosanna” instead, Weezer finally made their version of “Africa.”

This turned out to be a success, the cover has now given Weezer their highest-charting song in almost 10 years. Plus Weezer and Toto are both on tour right now (not together of course) so the extra press always helps.

Toto’s Steve Lukather was impressed by and really likes the cover. Toto’s keyboardist Steve Porcaro even showed up to perform with Weezer on [More]

Could it be?

After 17 YEARS of construction, maybe, just maybe, the I4 Eyesore is going to be finished.

There are some hilarious social posts from people who took pictures Tuesday night, when, for a brief moment in time, the lights turned on inside this Altamonte Springs building, that has sat unfinished for almost 2 decades.

WFTV says, the owner is promising completion this year…
