Bad news for Lynyrd Skynyrd fans. The band has cancelled the remainder of their 2015 dates after guitarist, Gary Rossington suffered a heart attack earlier this week. A statement from the band read “After further evaluation and continued treatment by his doctors, Gary Rossington is taking the remainder of 2015 off from touring to concentrate on recuperating from his recent heart procedures. Full refunds will be provided at point of purchase or thru the box office.” Needless to say, we’re glad Gary is alright. Skynyrd will hit the road in 2016.
It was 24 years ago today, November 24, 1991, the world lost one of the greatest rock and roll frontmen and vocalists of all time. Freddie definitely knew how to ROCK a crowd!
Check out Freddie at his best. Queen performing Under Pressure back in 1986 at Wembley Stadium
Trying to decide if this looks fun or just downright crazy. One thing is for sure, this guy is AWESOME!!! Surfing Nipissing in November… never thought I’d see the day.
The Dallas Stars have had a reputation over the past couple years for being “professional trolls.” The troll struck again last night. During the 2nd period, with the Stars down 3 – 1, they took the opportunity to pick fun at Canada in the best way possible… by playing Nickelback during EVERY stoppage in play!
The best thing about this is the fact that the Stars ended up coming back to win the game in Overtime. Guess it worked.
This is pretty cool! A restored version of the Beatles – A Day in the Life has surfaced online which features the Fab Four at a house party with Keith Richards and Mick Jagger of the Rolling Stones. The video will be released as part of the reissue of their 2001, 27 song compilation album “1″ which debuted at #1 on the US Billboard 200 chart and was the BEST selling album of the decade from 2000-2009 selling more than 31 Million copies.
The reissue is available November 6th.

Rush are getting set to release their “rockumentary” R40 Live on November 20th. The movie is a behind the scenes look at a pair Rush live performances in Toronto, earlier this summer.

He’s been called the “most authentic” tribute to Led Zeppelin, praised by Robert Plant himself! Michael White and the White is the closest thing you’ll get to Zepp and he’s here in North Bay!!
