YouTube videos down temporarily

Posted: December 2, 2006 in Uncategorized

Just a quick note to tell everyone that the YouTube videos posted on this blog, and other WordPress blogs, will be down for a short time. There is a glitch in the system and the WordPress people are fixing the situation.

I’ve received a lot of feedback on the videos, from Kelly Clarkson drunk on stage with Metal Skool to Black Sabbath clips. So I will continue to post them as I find them.

Nothing like getting in the Christmas spirit.

Here is the review I wrote in October. The album is growing on me a little, probably because we are in the holiday season. I’m a sucker for Christmas music.

Here’s a good rumor from Metal Sludge:

Call us creepy. Call us scums. Tell us we suck! But…fact is…Ratt is about to come Back For More & go Round n’ Round! With all (surviving) original members. This means frontman Stephen Pearcy & original bassist Juan Croucier will be joining Warren DeMartini & Bobby Blotzer.

Mark these words bitches!

The band is slated to play a final show in Mexico with the current line-up this weekend. Inside sources are reporting John Corabi will likely stay in the group and play rythym guitar.

As for Robbie Crane & Jizzy Pearl. There is always Love/Hate gigs at Paladinos and even the possibility of a 3rd LA Guns line-up. One with NO original members. How cool would that be? Jizzy Pearl, Robbie Crane, Keri Kelli and any random members of Every Mothers Nightmare, Smashed Gladys or War Babies!

Back For Sludge

— Ratt isn’t Ratt without Pearcy, his voice is too distinct. Hopefully they do an album.

From KISSonline.com:

KISS ALIVE! 1975-2000 BEST BUY BONUS TRACKS

Universal Music has manufactured replacement discs for Best Buy customers that purchased the set without the bonus tracks – “2000 Man” and “God Of Thunder”. The discs will begin shipping direct to Best Buy stores on 12/6. Depending on transit times, most Best Buy stores should have the discs by December 9.

To receive the free replacement disc, bring your receipt into a Best Buy store on or after December 9. If your purchase was made on Bestbuy.com, there will be instructions there as well, next week.

Best Buy will have plenty of replacement discs after the holidays too, for fans that receive the CD for Christmas.

Thank you for your patience while this solution was being worked out and implemented.

So it’s really not Gene and Paul’s fault. Nice to see Universal pony up with a solution. My question is: What if you are like most people and threw out your receipt?

I bought my ALIVE box set the day it came out – 11/21/06. I opened it, threw the receipt in the trash and forgot about it. I guess I’m screwed for the replacement disc.

Lucky for me, I threw it in the wastepaper basket by my desk. I just threw out the small bag yesterday so I did what any true fan would do: I went to the garage and raided the trash barrels for my bag o’trash! I found the Best Buy slip at the bottom of the bag, under the Diet Coke cans, junk mail, and CD wrappers.

The bonus tracks will be mine!
