Friday New Releases – June 16th

Happy Friday!  It is time for more new releases and one I know everyone on earth is waiting to hear…that is right…Nickelback!!  Your local police will be thrilled to have new Nickelback music to play and torment their prisoners.  There is quite a lot and a little for everyone so take a look and start listening.  My choices are highlighted in Blue.

  • 170x170bb-1  Nickelback – Feed the Machine – (Nickelback II Productions):  Nickelback is back (no pun intended) to bring more enjoyment to our senses (this was supposed to come out as sarcasm, but sometimes it is tough to show that in writing).  Will I give it a listen???  Maybe, not sure yet.  I figured I would mention it since so many people do buy their albums and go see them in concert.

  • 170x170bb-59  Cheap Trick – We’re All Alright! – (Big Machine):  The first of two childhood favorite bands with new albums.  First up is Cheap Trick.  I am glad to see them still cranking out new tunes as this is their 18th studio album and they actually released one last year as well.  Will I give this one a listen…hell yeah!.

Chuck Berry – R.I.P. – A Rock Legend!

One of the founding fathers of rock & roll and a true pioneer has passed at the tender young age of 90.  Charles Edward Anderson Berry or better known as Chuck Berry had such classic songs like “Maybellene”, ‘Johnny B. Goode” and “Roll Over Beethoven”, that inspired so many young kids in the 50’s to turn to rock & roll music and rebel against their parents…in a great way!!!

His guitar work and songs mixed rhythm and blues into what is now known as Rock & Roll.  He was a legend and his music will live on forever.  And to think, if it wasn’t for Marty McFly, we might not have had his music (kidding – Back to the Future joke).  Thank you Mr. Berry for all your greatness.

Here is a video with him and Keith Richards doing “Nadine” back in 1987.
