What the hell do u do after the Beatles??? Well Paul McCartney answered that question. He formed Wings in 1971 and the group consisted of Paul,his wife Linda, Denny Laine and Denny Seiwell. The line up constantly changed except for Paul, Linda, and Denny Line. Songs like, "Band on the Run, Jet, and Silly Love Songs," landed Wings on the charts. Unlike some other post-Beatles projects in the 1970s Wings was more than a back up band for Paul. The band was a unit and other members beside Paul wrote or co wrote some of their songs. The band toured around the world and Paul and Linda's children traveled with them. I think it would be awesome to tour around the world because my parents were musicians. But then you add the fact that PAUL MCCARTNEY is my father and it's the best time ever! The band broke up in 1981 but Paul still performs some of the groups songs today. Unfortunately Paul's lovely Linda died from breast cancer in 1998. :^( But we don't wanna bring the whole thing up. Paul McCartney rocks and with Wings he was just amazing and awesome. In fact the whole group was. Wings was "THE" band to be in after the Beatles.

Its been a very long time! Sorry I have been immensely busy. School and life has worn me down and I have had no time to write. First I would like to address John Lennon. I wish him a very late 70th birthday.Though I wasn't born when he was killed or when he was doing his solo stuff or with the Beatles his music is amazing and wonderful. His death is only marked by tragedy. The world misses him very much and I....WE all wish he was still alive and well singing for us and making more amazing music! We love you John and always will. Next George Harrison died 9 years ago today. He was amazing and truly talented.His music was tastefully written. Here comes the sun is probably my favorite songs of all time. Very sad when he died I was quite young and had no idea.Just another tragedy in the band. Not as great as John Lennon's death mostly because his was unexpected but still horribly sad. R.I.P peace and love thank you for your amazing music and we love you.Sigh im making myself sad. Very unfortunate. Oy sooo sad. Well that's really all this post is dedicated in their honor thank you both again for your amazing music we love you and always will. Thank you!

The man of peace and the king of reggae brought music to a new level when he appeared on the music scene. Bob Marley was born in the small village of Nine Mile in Saint Ann Parish, Jamaica as Robert Nesta Marley. He was brought in a two room shack by his mother, Cedella. When Bob was ten he and his mother moved to Kingston to hopefully find a better life. With little money they were forced to settle in Trenchtown. A place full of disease and and gangs.There Bob met Bunny Wailer and they started to jam on homemade instruments. They started to jam with Joe Higgs a local singer and devout Rastafarian. Bob and Bunny perfected their sound by playing on the streets of Trenchtown. There they met Peter Tosh. The band released the single, "Simmer Down." It became a number one single on the Jamaican billboard. Rita Anderson worked her way into the studio and Bob and her started to see each other. They then got married on February 10, 1966. Soon after the wedding Bob traveled to the United States. He returned to Jamaica with 700 bucks. He a woke to a new religion, Rastafari. Part of the religion is smoking. Fast forward a bit and Bob Marley breaks up with the wailers and goes on his own way. Being famous came with prices. He was scheduled to play a free concert organized by the Jamaican Prime Minister Michael Manley in an attempt to ease tension between two warring political groups. To some this meant Marley was in favor for Manley to win. Marley, his wife, and manager Don Taylor were wounded in an assault by unknown gunmen inside Marley's home two days before the event. But Marley played the concert with a smile. His days were spreading his message of peace and he was happy to do so. But he was soon told he had malignant melanoma. Despite this he kept on playing But soon the cancer spread to his lungs and brain. He died on the morning of 11 May 1981, at the age of 36. He left a great legacy that people celebrate everyday. R.I.P
Long ago I heard That Steve Perry might have a daughter. I looked in to it a little but nothing extreme. Finally I remembered the fact or fiction story and here I bring to you today news on the situation. WikiAnswers says he does have a daughter and her name is Shamila or Shamira. I don't really know. :-( Ha And according to to WikiAnswers he has grandchildren! Perry a grandfather wow! But is real? I don't have much to back me up but say he does in fact have a daughter. They don't like a like really (I think) But maybe she takes after the mother whoever that maybe. But I'm happy to say Steve Perry has a daughter! And she lives in Raeford NC according to Cha Cha. Here are pictures.

The Bangles were four California girls who dreamed of being the Beatles. They were an all girl, all American garage band with a great chemistry on stage and off. The Bangles started in the Peterson's family garage in California's San Fernando Valley. Though most girls wanted to date rocks stars the Peterson sisters, Vicki and Debbi wanted to be rock stars. Susannah Hoffs answered a news paper ad for a female guitarist (which was posted by Vicki and Debbi.) Then a few weeks later Debbi and Vicki went down to Susannah's house and lied down the foundation for a real band. The girls recruited Annette Zilinskas for base and the girls started playing small clubs under the name of the Bangs. They saved up and recorded a single and set out to get it played. When it finally got played it caught the attention of Miles Copeland and the band signed with him. He had them recorded five songs for an album but before the album's release a New Jersey band with the same name threaten to sue the band. The girls quickly changed their name to the Bangles to avoid trouble. They released their first album and in 1982 they set out for their first tour. They opened up for the English Beat which was a gentle sailing ship. NOT!!!!!!!!!! The crowd threw carp at them and gave them the finger during their set. But they survived and after their tour they signed with Columbia. But Annette left the band to join her boyfriend's band.(BIG MISTAKE) The girls found their news bassist from the all girl band The Runaways and started to work on their first album with Columbia. They released "All Over The Place," in 1984. The album became wasn't commercially successful but it did produced two singles and the Bangles released a big string of hits throughout the 80s. Like "Hero Takes a Fall, Going Down to Liverpool, Manic Monday, If She Knew What She Wants, Walk Like an Egyptian, Walking Down Your Street and Hazy Shade of Winter." But friction started up due to the press singling out Susannah Hoffs as the lead singer because she was lead vocals on many of the singles the band produced. The firing of their manger, Miles Copeland also contributed to their problems. They also couldn't confront each other about the deterioration of the band. So in 1989 they disbanded. It wouldn't be until 2000 they got together and they released Doll Revolution in 2003. They haven't put out any new albums since (WHY?? they're a great band put out another album!!!) But they have been touring. And I missed them!! Carp. Anyways they have great songs and Vicki Peterson can play that guitar sooo great. And her sister Debbi can play those drums awesomely. They kick ass and they show girls can carry tune better than guys. Also I have Walk like an Egyptian stuck in my head and I wanna dance when I hear it. And the guitar part in Hazy Shade of Winter is soooooooooooooo awesome! I have to learn it. Well that's it pics and the video for Hazy Shade of Winter and Walk like an Egyptian will be posted.

Mattel had come out with a new line of Barbie dolls. The range is aimed primarily at collectors. The dolls are modeled after Cyndi Lauper, Deborah Harry, and Joan Jett. The Cyndi doll's hair looks nothing like hers back then. But with Cyndi's hair back then it would be hard but still try because it wasn't that long or put up like that either. Well that's it. Oh if you want one of these dolls dig in your wallet for 40 or 30 bucks.
OK Blondie mania!! I will provided link to wiki because there is a lot to write about Blondie's history. Blondie apparently will come out with a new album in titled, "Panic of Girls." I'm up for that! Debbie still sounds great. I'm not so sure about beauty though. In some pics she looks good others its really different. But you know when you get up there and rock star life takes a toll. It'll be intersecting to hear her without a crowd in the background. The album will be released in September 2010. Now Parallel Lines. Great album right? It has "Hanging on the Telephone,One Way or Another,Picture This,Sunday Girl, and Heart of Glass. The only thing is some wimps over at BBC didn't like the expression "pain in the ass." They changed the the lyric to heart of glass. STUPID!! I can picture some one saying, "OH MY GOD THEY JUST SAID ASS!! HORRIBLE KILL THEM. WITCH HUNT!!!" And even worse in Australia the song was banned from radio. What The Fudge?? Are u serious?? Uggh I give up. Well that's it. Pics will be posted and one is the cover for Panic of Girls. (looks like Anime right??)
I found a clip from a documentary they did on Journey in 1983 called, "Frontiers and Beyond." The set up is the band was on stage playing and some guy throws a beer bottle and it hits Neal Schon's ear. Now Neal Schon is a really good guitar playing but he's a bit of a D-bag. So it ends up being funny to me. Anyways he is bleeding and Steve Perry gets all upset or as the people in the control room said pissed. He starts yelling (which is funny) and the bleeps in the video really suck do you can totally tell he said the F word. Now see friends best friends. Well before the whole stupid stone cracked. I bet if someone showed them the clip they would have to be a little touched or just laugh. Next is at HWOF where Neal Schon told reporters about the 2005 carnation of Journey and said we're coming out with a new album and going on tour this summer and maybe we can get Steve out there with us. What the F!!! You hate this guy. So he was probably drunk. But of course it never happened. Maybe he said that for more ticket sales and publicity. Well have fun watching a Pissed Perry and a Probably Drunk Neal Schon.

Yes Cyndi Lauper will be showing off her true colors in a reality TV show. The show will be about her day to day life with her family. Lauper said the show will focus on
"the comedy of our lives.” The date this will air or what station it will be on has not been announced. I had no idea this was coming. I love Cyndi but we definitely saw her ugly side in the the Celebrity Apprentice but then again we saw Holly Robinson Peete's ugly side all around!! I just hope Cyndi doesn't end up looking like some crazy evil lady. Who knows? It will be interesting though to see her live with her family. Next topic. Is it just me or is Girls Just Wanna have Fun amazingly powerful and awesome. When ever I hear it I just wanna jump up, dance, and sing along. One day I just wanna get all of my friends dress up crazy and turn on the song and dance along. But my friends will probably never go for it, they think I'm crazy for loving 70s and 80s music so much. Well look at for Cyndi because she will be taking over your TV soon!!

Pat Benatar time! Ok!! If you look at my profile I say my favorite book is, "Between a Heart and a Rock Place." That is her memoir which I read in only FIVE days!! Amazing right!! I'm a Wunderkind!! Anyways the book rocks and Pat rocks. I would write history but my fingers hurt so I'll give a link to wicked wiki as my teacher calls it. No questions about that one. Pat is going on her 13th summer tour in a row. The tour features her and Reo SpeedWagon. And a Australian tour with the Bangles will happen. I again will not be able to see Pat which SUCKS EGGS!!!!!!!! On to the next subject: radio play. All I ever hear on the radio of Pat's is, "Heartbreaker and Hit Me With Your Best Shot." My rebuttal Pat was the Queen of the 80s!!! And Queen of Rock and Roll!! She showed everyone women can rock harder than guys. (But remember there were other women before like HEART!!) Changing subject real quick. Everybody says Pat Benatar was the women who broke into the boys club. Heart was there way before! I'm not dising Pat but I want more respect for Heart. Anyways give Pat more air play. And different songs. Like, "You Better Run, Treat Me Right, Love is a Battlefield, invincible, (which is an really awesome song)Shadows of the Night, and Promises In the Dark. Come on people!! Next topic Pat should really come out with a new album. Its been soooooo long. Pat still has a great voice and she and her husband can write! Well that's all I have to say. Pics of 80s Benatar and Present Benatar will be posted.
