Grammy winner

Hangar 18

@Megadeth @COPENHELL @DaveMustaine

Megadeth took home their first Grammy Award this past weekend for Dystopia. Dystopia is probably my fourth favorite Megadeth album (after #1 Rust in Peace, #2 Peace Sells… But Who’s Buying?, and #3 So Far, So Good… So What).

When I took today’s photo, Dave was playing one of my favorites off “Rust In Peace” (Hangar 18) at 2016 Copenhell. Here is a video someone else a few rows back of my position took of the song. The scene in the photo happened for just a split second during the last few seconds of the video.

The End

Today is the day. Black Sabbath is calling it quits. After 48 years and thousands of shows, tonight, in Birmingham, England–where it all began–is where it will all end. I was fortunate to have seen Ozzy solo twice (once in the 80s and once in the 90s), Dio solo in the 1980s, and Black Sabbath three times (90s, 00s, and on The End Tour last summer in Denmark).

Happy Inauguration Day

Pigs (Three Different Ones) played by Roger Waters @ Desert Trip

@realDonaldTrump #DesertTrip #DesertTrip2016 @DesertTripIndio @rogerwaters #inauguration

Roger Waters wrote “Pigs” in 1977 (for Pink Floyd). Everyone laughed when he performed it at Desert Trip with these images of Trump on the stage that had been transformed from the “Animals” cover. Everyone laughed because they didn’t imagine Trump would actually be elected.

Today, 40 years later, the words seem more applicable than ever. And by “today” I don’t mean “now”, I mean “TODAY”, January 20, 2017.

“Big man, pig man, ha ha, charade you are
You well heeled big wheel, ha ha, charade you are
And when your hand is on your heart
You’re nearly a good laugh
Almost a joker
With your head down in the pig bin
Saying “keep on digging”
Pig stain on your fat chin
What do you hope to find?
When you’re down in the pig mine
You’re nearly a laugh
You’re nearly a laugh
But you’re really a cry.

You’re nearly a good laugh
Almost worth a quick grin
You like the feel of steel
You’re hot stuff with a hat pin
And good fun with a hand gun
You’re nearly a laugh
You’re nearly a laugh
But you’re really a cry.
Hey you White House, ha ha, charade you are”

Gefle Metal Festival 2017

Amon Amarth @ 2016 Copenhell

@COPENHELL @AmonJohan @AmonAmarthBand @deathangel @nervosathrash

I’m thinking about adding Gefle Metal Festival 17 to my summer itinerary. I went to the Getaway Rock Festival back in 2011 at this same location.

Amon Amarth is headlining. If I go, this will be my fourth time seeing them. Other bands include Arch Enemy, who I haven’t seen with their new singer, Death Angel, Nervosa, and Sanctuary, who I haven’t seen in 27 years!

Happy birthday, Dirk Verbeuren!
