I'm 49 y/o and still have a drawer full of band Tees and my pandora and Soundcloud are chock full of indie Rock and alt bands--I just like different shit. I still go to P-Funk shows despite them being far from hedonistic and drug fueled romps anymore--I just love George, what he represents. I have no illusions, being a married man, of clubbing it up with scene kids but I will support the band they are in, if they are sincere and they rock like a mofo! I will probably never truly outgrow my formative years. I'm stuck with them.

Obama got in again!

Or as LL Cool J put it on Twitter:
'Don't call it a comeback he's been here 4 years!'

http://soundcloud.com/resonance-fm/2012-11-07-17-30-00-yinka-and

Some people were very happy, some people were actually more relieved and some actually went nuts (how you holding up Donald?)

Here the tale of the ticker tape as told by your friend from the other side of the Atlantic - Yinka (Sabatta) on his weekly www.Resonancefm.com Radio Show.

Featuring music from Nas, Jay-Z, Young Jezzy, Ice Cube, Parliament/Funkadelic, David Bowie and LL Cool J.
Oh - and Rush Limbaurgh tries his hand at rapping!

NO I didn't really know KD was even still around. His shows have to be experienced truly to be believed they aren't all Satanic like people think - but very costume-y and dark. When I was younger I had so much anger and these shows were a totally relief to go to and just drain it out. But so energetic-like nothing I have ever experienced before.

I would go again!

I noticed Danzig folks trying to be hard, did you see "The Cleveland Show" when Rollo did a Danzig performance for his school talent show? I was on the floor! See if you can find it online.

Comment by Rosenda on September 16, 2012 at 1:42pm
Liva did you see King Diamond on that teal show yesterday? I didn't know he'd had health troubles and surgery? How's KD on concert? I've always wanted to see them and Captain Beefheart too, two men with wild music and crazy voices. My buddy's nephew by the way is one of the kids in the new tv commercial on vh1, the one on black and white. Such a nice kid, we've gone to lots of shows together, he's learning music and we have all these discussions about old and new musc of many genres.
