Afternoon Rush

Amusing story. See if you can figure it out. I was at the Walgreen’s getting some batteries for my watches. The total for the purchase was $21.12. The cashier made a brief comment about that being an awesome number. It took a moment for me to respond, even though I immediately understood her reference. When […]

Question: Is Led Zeppelin A Heavy Metal Band?

A coworker, much younger than me, started this debate with me earlier today. It’s an interesting question. Is Zeppelin really a heavy metal group?

Granted, there was disco, but that was at the end of the 70’s, and really only lasted a few years. So, for […]

Growing up, Deep Purple was one of the first real Heavy Metal groups I ever listened to and bought albums (along with Iron Maiden and Black Sabbath). Reports are that Jon Lord, co-founder and keyboardist, has passed away from pancreatic cancer at age 71. Deep Purple was truly revolutionary in creating that British metal sound, […]
