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.

Check Out This Incredible Ukulele Cover of Cannibal Corpse

I don't know if you've ever seen the instrumental video of the music for the Cannibal Corpse song, "Frantic Disembowelment", but it's freaking seriously intense!

An insanely challenging song, at a ridiculous looks like the video has been sped up, and isn't real.  But it's totally real.

This ukulele cover version takes all of that, and puts it on the Uke!

Alter Bridge Releases Cool Animated Video for ‘Cry of Achilles’ [Video]

Alter Bridge, in case you've been in a cave for the last decade, is the band that Mark Tremonti formed after Creed dissolved, to put out music that's a bit heavier than Creed, but still melodic.

He snatched up one of the best singers around right now, Myles Kennedy, and they've not looked back!

The new album, Fortress, came out last year, and it's freaking amazing!  If you don't have it, pick this album up and play it in your car REALLY LOUD. Or in your home. Either way, it's great.
