It Was Only Thanksgiving, Right?

Seriously, it wasn’t Christmas was it? Perusing the news over at and I’m beginning to wonder, what with all the news item “gifts” that occurred over the past four days. . .

  • Yngwie Malmsteen has released a clip where he covers Michael Jackson’s “Beat It” on his Myspace page. Tim “Ripper” Owens is on vocals (added bonus)!  No really, it’s some decent shred, check it out.
  • The ‘classic’ line-up of Dokken reunited for first time in 10 years in a 2 song encore last night (11/29) in Anaheim, Cali.  Yes, you read that correctly.  Don Dokken, Jeff Pilson, Mick Brown AND George Lynch performed “When Heaven Comes Down” and “IN MY DREAMS” (!!) at the House of Blues.  Follow the link for some Youtube goodness of this historic occurrence.
  • Legendary guitarist John Christ (ex-Danzig) took the stage for the first time in 10 years this past Friday (11/27) for  a solo set mixing Danzig material with some Stevie Ray Vaughan & apparently even some Wizard of Oz.  Wish I coulda been there!  Met JC back when he was on tour with Danzig and he was a very cool dude, not to mention an exceptional guitarist.  Glad to hear he’s back gigging.
  • Henry Rollins has announced his latest spoken word tour . . . and he’s coming to my hometown of Columbus, Ohio.   April 02, LC Pavilion bitches.  YES!

All in all, not a bad way to start a week, eh?
