‘Free Beer & Hot Wings’ Live Show at Rightway Auto Was a Lot of Fun

Thanks to everyone who came out on Friday morning for the "Free Beer & Hot Wings Morning Show" live show at Rightway Auto in Wyoming!

The guys had a great time, and you guys were a big part of why it was so fun!

Producer Joe managed to screw up "Name That Blank," but everyone still had fun with it. And "Paired With An Idiot" got all the way down to Rochambeau between Joe and Free Beer.

Free Beer & Hot Wings: Alaska Reporter Says ”F*** It, I Quit’ On Live TV [Video]

For years, a radio DJ named Inetta the Moodsetta has been known for the greatest on-air quitting moment ever when she decided that she had enough at the radio station she worked for in Mobile, Ala.

Well, move over Inetta! A television reporter at a station in Alaska dropped a bombshell Sunday night that puts Inetta to shame.

Watch a Megadeth Full Live Show from Bloodstock

This is why the internet is awesome.  A band can play a show on a completely different continent on Sunday, and by Monday afternoon, we can watch that show here!

Megadeth is doing some festivals and big shows, while they work on the next Megadeth album, which will hopefully be fast and thrashy again.

Last night, they hit the Bloodstock Open Air festival in England, and tore it up in front of a huge crowd.  Today, we can turn out monitors so the boss can't see them, and watch the entire show, pro-shot on our computers!

Nothing More Rocked Grand Rapids at The Stache [Photo/Video]

Last night, San Antonio's Nothing More hit The Stache with their high-energy show, and blew away everyone at The Stache!

There were a lot of Nothing More live virgins at the beginning of the night, but after the show, the band had everyone elevated to super-fan status.  The guys keep the show going quickly, with a lot of energy, and they have some really cool stage setups, too!

Motley Crue Kicked Off Their Final Tour in Grand Rapids With Problems [Video/Photo]

Wednesday night in Grand Rapids was a bit rough for Motley Crue, as they kicked off their Final Tour at the Van Andel Arena.  The show was plagued with technical problems throughout, and oddness.

After the third song, Tommy apparently blasted a hole in the kick drum...I'm sure it had nothing to do with FBHW Producer Joe's stunt that morning.  Positive.

Alice Cooper Rocks Grand Rapids at Van Andel Arena [Video/Photos]

Motley Crue and Alice Cooper hit the Van Andel Arena last night to kick off Motley's Final Tour in Grand Rapids!

Alice Cooper and his amazing band opened the show with a fantastic set of Cooper hits, one after the other, without any really stopping!

Alice and the gang ripped through the set at a fast pace, never slowing down and never letting up. The sound was great, the band was on fire and Alice brought out several of his famous props and effects for the show!

It's not a Cooper show if he doesn't cut off his head, get in the electric chair, sing in a straight jacket, and let his guitar players rip it up!

Gojira ‘Explosia’ Live at Rock on the Range 2014 [Video]

Let me start this by saying, "I freaking LOVE Gojira"!  I've been so excited to see this band, I would have paid for tickets to Rock on the Range JUST to see them!  

It would have been a weird thing to do, admittedly, buying tickets to a huge show for only one band, and I still would have checked out as many as I did ... but you get what I'm saying.

This French band has been building their followers over the last few years, and among them, tons of well-known musicians.  This band takes the rhythmic and percussive things that a lot of bands are doing in different directions.  They use odd time signatures, weird sounds, cool tapping riffs, and odd song structures to blow people away.

Mastodon “Black Tongue” Live at Rock on the Range 2014 [Video]

So many bands at Rock on the Range 2014, so little time!  This was the first year they expanded the event to three days, and there were 60 or so bands over the weekend!  I ran around checking out all the bands I had to see, and I still only managed to see maybe 40 of the 60.  I promise I'll try hard next year.

One band I wanted to see, and did, was Mastodon!  I've been listening to Mastodon since I first got the Remission album when it came out, and watched the bonus DVD on there.  Wicked stuff!
