The Greatest Band to Come from this Country

I can’t tell you how happy I am to see that Cheap Trick will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.  Sure I am a Chicago kid and these boys came together on the same fertile land of my youth.  They have incredible songs and energy and have stayed together except for some minor tooling with the rhythm section.  Robin Zander is the greatest rock vocalist and unlike most of the bands we supported in the past 4 decades, Robin’s voice has actually gotten better.  It is like a fine wine (whine) getting better with age.

The band will put out their new release right before this monumental induction.  This is the first video “When I Wake up Tomorrow” They are bad-ass in this musical tip of the hat to David Bowie, whom we all wish would still be here when we wake up tomorrow.

The new album title Bang Zoom Crazy…Hello is out April 1st.  This will be marked with an in-store autograph session at Reckless Records and a show that night at Metro in Chicago.

If you like my blog and have access to programming and would like to do a radio/internet show together, please contact me. spoolgoinground@yahoo.com My name is Mike. I am an on-air radio DJ. I fell in love with radio in Chicago and then took that passion to someplace where I could actually get on the air. My travels took me to Seattle, WA, Eugene and Portland, OR and Washington D.C., where I was able to have my own morning show. I've had crab cakes with Warren Zevon, sat backstage with Sting, had Melissa Etheridge sing to me from the front row and I loved every minute of it. That passion for music still burns strong in me and I love to talk music and be turned on to music. Sharing new music with people is what got me interested in radio in the first place. It is wonderful to be able to talk music with you. "Go ahead you're on the air..." Read more: http://www.chicagonow.com/blogs/spool-going-round/about-spool-going-round.html#ixzz1Bfx7V0ug
