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.

Sunday night, Free Beer returned to Grand Rapids on a very late flight, and then had some time with his kids before getting to sleep at almost 2am. He wakes up for the show at 3:40, and was understandably exhausted.

The rest of the guys decided to be nice, and let him skip out early on the behind the scenes stuff for the day, so he could go home and remember the English language.

Black Sabbath Tease New Setlist with Rehearsal Video Footage

Black Sabbath are about to head out on their final tour. This is not one of those "final" tours where they will come back in a couple years and do it again, according to the band. This is it. That's why it's call "The End". The band is rehearsing now, and are really focusing on all the "new old" songs in the set, that they haven't played since the 70's.

I love that!

Norwegian Bad Ass Shows You How to Enjoy Your Coffee in the Snow [Video]

I almost have no words. Imagine it's at least as cold as it's been here the last few days, there's a ton of snow on the ground (like here), and you are going outside. Now, imagine just throwing on a robe, grabbing a book and a cup of coffee, and sliding down the street to your buddy's house.

So far, pretty normal. Now, try to do it looking cool AF.
