You're Gonna Like These Cold Stares.....

I am pleased to introduce you to The Cold Stares, a rockin' band that will appear on my radio show later today.  The band originates from Kentucky and when you listen to their music you'll swear there are more than 2 dudes rockin' it.
(remember...if you can't listen today at 1:00 pm cst, you can click on this link anytime to hear the archived episode)

The boys have accumulated a respectable resume in a very short time, namely, winning Nashville's Hard Rock Cafe Battle of the Bands in 2010; releasing a CD which received critical acclaim and record company interest, opening for popular bands such as Rocco Deluca, Big Head Todd & The Monsters, Bob Schneider, Roman Candle, Verve Pipe and more.  The boys have recorded what they consider their best work "Sleeping With Lions," due out in March. Their CD "A Cold Wet Night & A Howling Wind" reached the Top 5 on Amazon.

Check out their artistically groovy website:

Sometimes when you see a band playing you fail to realize what struggles lie beneath the blaring guitars, drums & speakers. Talented lead singer, songwriter & guitarist, Chris Tapp, was diagnosed last May with cancer; resulting in surgery and treatments which stalled the band's performances and projects. Chris recently received a clean bill of health and is now giving some cold stares.

Drummer Brian Mullins: "Our band started as an accident. We had done other projects together, but nothing stuck. We were writing some songs and jamming by ourselves when he (Chris) brought in "Jesus' Brother James," The song was so good, I thought it was a cover. I thought it was some song that I should know and didn't. The next week he brought in "John" off our new record. Same way- an instant classic, imo. Those songs propelled the early days. (2009)."

If you are in the Evansville area I HIGHLY ENCOURAGE you to check out this band Saturday night at Mojo's. I enjoy sharing cool info with my readers & this is a band you don't want to miss - they will be hot one day & you wanna be able to say "yeah, I saw those dudes."
Their album is available at Joe's Records, Itunes, Amazon, Rhapsody, Spotify, and at their shows.

John Lennon's Blurb for Today (Thanks to Jude!) :

Probably the single most quoted (yes over-quoted!) John Lennon tidbit of wisdom is: “Life is what happens while you’re busy making other plans.” We hear it, repeat it, and…ignore it. And we continue to live life on “fast forward” just like Adam Sandler in the movie, “Click.”

Today, for example…I recorded a radio show for “The John Lennon Hour” and wrote another one for approval by an upcoming guest. I did a load of clothes, moved all the furniture back into my family room after a mold removal upheaval, ran three-and-a-half miles, cooked dinner, answered a ton of emails, sent out a business proposal, booked a new speaking engagement, Skyped with my grandson, called to check on my parents, watched Part 2 of “George Harrison: Living in the Material World,” cleaned the kitchen, and made coffee for tomorrow morning.

I barely took time to pet my cat, see the world as I zipped by, or hold my husband’s hand. And each day, I assure myself that tomorrow I’ll slow down. Yes indeed, I’ll enjoy life tomorrow.

“Life is what happens while you’re busy making other plans,” John continues to tell me. And at 40, he was gone. I’m living on borrowed and abused time. How about you?
