Johnnie Walker

I've never been good at filling these things out, but here it goes. I like long walks in cold mountain air, preferably with snow on the ground. I enjoy drinking fine soda by the crackling fire, and deep tissue massage. I hope to one day grow up an become and astronaut, so I can fly to Venus to see if that's really where women come from. If it's true, I'll bring one back for you, too. Unless it's a dude you want, and then you're out of luck...sorry. My favorite month is October, because Halloween is the best holiday ever! It allows me to openly proclaim my love and obsession with scary movies without being seen as some sort of lunatic. Okay, not too much of a lunatic. I'm a huge fan of rock and metal music, and you'll often hear me blasting the control room speakers into oblivion every night during my show. My engineer doesn't like me very much, since he has to fix them. Sorry, Mike.

Ever Feel Like You’re Being Watched?

The Free Beer and Hot Wings guys have the WGRD studio pretty well covered with cameras right now, to stream their show to all their adoring fans all over the country. And that's a cool thing.

But every once in a while I wonder...do the guys ever log in and look at the webcam feed after their show is over, just to see what's going on in the studio?

Everybody Sounds Insane to Someone Who Doesn’t Drink Coffee

Hi, my name is Johnnie, and I don't like coffee.

(PAUSE FOR ALL THE GASPS TO SUBSIDE)

I never have.  I don't like the flavor, the smell, how it tastes when someone you're kissing drank it...the only bit that's okay is the first 10 second when the bag is opened and you get that initial smell of the beans.  After that, get it away.

Get Your Shred on With the Guitar Gods Festival Tour – Yngwie, Hoey, Roth, Bumblefoot

With all the packaged tours going around right now, there's one coming that's a bit different.  If you've ever gotten the chance to see one of Joe Satriani's G3 tours, this would be similar to that.  It's the Guitar Gods Festival Tour 2014!

Yngwie Malmsteen has put together a Guitar Gods tour with Uli Jon Roth, Gary Hoey, and Bumblefoot!  No word on whether they'll all get on stage together and shred-out, but you never know.

Hot Chick Hitting on Straight Women Scores More Often Than Guys Will [Video]

Guaranteed, if you or I stood on the street, randomly asking out hot girls as they passed, we'd be arrested probably within minutes.

But, being a woman seems to make some things much easier. Not to mention hot as hell!

This hot chick gets more numbers in this four minute video than most guys would get in probably four hours doing this.

ReVamp Shares Behind the Scenes Footage from Their Grand Rapids Show and More [Video]

On April 4th, Iced Earth, Sabaton and ReVamp kicked off their US tour here in Grand Rapids at the Intersection.  They all played amazing sets, even with the equipment problems ReVamp had during the day.

Apparently, their gear didn't arrive in time for the show, so they had to get some rental gear to play the show, and it pushed the show start time back a bit.

Check out the beginning of the behind the scenes video for some footage backstage at the Intersection.

King of the Wing 2014 Preview – Buffalo Wild Wings

It’s almost time for the King of the Wing, and it’s going to make the wing lover in you so happy!  Today, I got to preview the wing flavors that Buffalo Wild Wings will be serving at the King of the Wing, and they're amazing!  Don't think chain wing flavors here.  These are flavors you might not think about trying, but you should.

These aren't just hot, medium and mild buffalo sauces.  They're serving up a Honey Bourbon Sauce, Carribean Jerk, Chipotle BBQ dry rub, and Honey BBQ.
