Or you can just wait around in Vancouver for a bunch of concerts to hit town.
There's about a dozen dinosaurs heading this way, but they aren't all ready for extinction.
If you're a fan of the blues, you've gotta admire the connections David Gogo has made with the genre's legendary practitioners.
It started back when he was just a kid, hanging out with Stevie Ray Vaughan, and continues to this day.
One of my fave comedians, Stephen Colbert, interviewed one of my fave singer-songwriters, Paul McCartney, on a special hour-long episode of The Colbert Report last night.
"Last time we talked I wasn't that familiar with your work," says Colbert early on. "I have since then though boned-up on my McCartney, and Jesus-wept can you write some ditties!"
Oh man—I could watch Texas tonemaster Eric Johnson test out American Vintage '59 Strats all day long.
"I think the ultimate thing is feelin' so comfortable with an instrument that you forget you're playing the instrument, and you're just makin' music."
An hour or so ago Mick Jagger sent out a tweet with a picture of himself holding up a Boston Bruins jersey.
The tweet reads: "Hi there, Good luck! Mick #Bruins #becauseofthecup #Stones50"
Now, I've go nothing against Boston—the band, that is. "More Than a Feeling" is one of the finest rock tunes of all time.
But the hockey team?
Without Bobby Orr—or Derek Sanderson, for that matter—they suck.
Nowadays it seems like I get the majority of my humour from animation and cartoons—or animated cartoons, if you will. Archer, Family Guy, Robot Chicken, that trustry standby The Simpsons—there's no shortage of chortle-inducing material out there if you're wealthy enough to afford cable.
It's common knowledge that Dave Mustaine is quite the right-wing dickhead, but he outdid himself last night at a gig in Manchester, England.
As seen in this fan-shot video, the Megadeth leader (and Rick Santorum supporter) went to town on a concertgoer who'd apparently booed him after the band had left the stage for 10 minutes while a lighting issue was being dealt with.
When the group returned, the "fan" displayed his unhappiness about the interruption, leading Mustaine to make the keen observation: "You look like Eminem, you stupid cunt."
After explaining to the crowd that the technical adjustments were necessary for its enjoyment of the show, Mustaine again projected the full power of his assholiness at the fan.
When people, knowing I'm a horror freak, ask me what my fave scary movie is, the answer never comes that easily.
The obvious choice, The Exorcist, comes to mind, but more recently I was totally blown away by The Cabin in the Woods. And I never tire of watching Bruce Campbell do his Elvis thing in Don Coscarelli's Bubba Ho Tep.
Fans of '70s music can get their fill of riff-riddled rock in a few hours when the Boston Strong benefit concert takes place. Aerosmith, the J. Geils Band, and Boston (yeah!) are among the bands taking part in the fundraiser, which will stream live at 4 pm Vancouver time (7 pm Eastern) on CNN.
Other performers on the bill include James Taylor, Carole King, Jimmy Buffett, Extreme, Godsmack, New Kids on the Block (boo!) and comedians Steven Wright and Dane Cook. (We kinda wish Patton Oswalt would be there.)
