Twister Sister and Adrenaline Mob Drummer A.J. Pero Died Today on Tour

Twisted Sister/Adrenaline Mob drummer A.J. Pero passed away this morning, in his bunk on the Adrenaline Mob tour bus.

Humor-Cored Band Psychostick Parodies Kenny Loggins’ ‘Danger Zone’ [Video]

Psychostick could be considered one of the greatest bands of all time.

I'm actually a little suprised that they haven't performed a Gilda's LaughFest show. Maybe I can convince the group to perform next year!

Psychostick has released a new video for its latest song -- a metal cover of the Top Gun movie theme song, "Danger Zone." Don't deny it; you know the Kenny Loggins song.
