Many will say Sammy Hagar carried a huge weight on his shoulders when he replaced David Lee Roth as lead singer of Van Halen. That is true. But it was a Connecticut man who can lay claim to literally carrying the band on his shoulders on this week in 1986.
Hard to believe but it’s been 30 years since the classic movie Spinal Tap hit the big screen. After all these years the movie is just as hilarious as it was when it came out and you may be surprised to hear about the bands and artists who helped inspire the movie’s classic scenes.
Hulkamaniacs around the world were no doubt excited to hear the recent news that the one and only Hulk Hogan will return to the WWE and host WrestleMania 30 on April 6th in New Orleans. We can only hope that the Hulkster will enter the arena with the familiar adrenaline-pumping sounds of his classic 1980s entrance song “Real American”, a song that has a very interesting backstory and an interesting classic rock connection too.
The list is pretty long already. Axl Rose, Paul McCartney, Van Morrison, Jerry Garcia, Neil Young, Levon Helm, Eric Burdon, Rod Stewart, David Bowie, Roger Waters, Grace Slick, John Deacon, Peter Gabriel, Edward Van Halen, Alex Van Halen and David Lee Roth. It looks like we might be adding Ace Frehley to that list and maybe Peter Criss too.
Which begs the question: Why is it so hard for artists to come together for just one night?
