The Black Keys and Cage the Elephant rocked Grand Rapids last night at the Van Andel arena, in front of thousands of cheering people!  Thanks to all of you who came out and rocked with WGRD at the show!

The Black Keys hit the stage with a bigger show than I really expected, and they put on a fantastic performance!  They played a lot of songs, covering a lot of ground, and hitting a lot of older songs, that seemed to make all the die hard Black Keys fans happy.

Johnnie’s Throwback Thursday – 2000 Iron Maiden and Rob Halford

My throwback Thursday goes back to 2000, when I finally got to meet some of my metal heroes.  Iron Maiden was hitting the road with Queensryche and Rob Halford's solo band, and I took a week of so I could follow them around and hit 5 shows.

I caught the San Antonio, El Paso, Albuquerque, Phoenix, and Irvine shows that tour, and remember being super excited, since two of my favorite singers ever were touring together; Rob Halford and Bruce Dickinson!
