GOOOOOOD MORNING VIETNAM!!!
(classic Robin Williams, R.I.P.)
Really though, good morning! Hope everyone slept on the right side of the bed last night and is ready to finish this work week strong!
SOTD- Todays song of the day goes to Israel Kamakawiwo'ole- Somewhere Over The Rainbow. We all know when we hear certain songs they bring up emotions and past memories, some good and some bad. Do you ever have those songs that once they start to play you just immediately start to smile? You get that big grin on your face and you can't seem to wip it off? This is definitely one of those songs for me. This song is so peaceful and radiates with me so strongly recently. I always feel a sudden calmness once it comes on. I prefer the version that Israel "IZ" Kamakawiwo'ole, translating to "the fearless eyed", does. The Hawaiian musician singer song-writer passed away at the young age of 38. His legacy lives on today in all of our lives. Rest in peace to a truly talented human being.
Yes, bands like KISS, Guns N' Roses, Aerosmith, Led Zepplin, ZZ Top, Pink Floyd, The Doors, The Who, Black Sabbath, Sex Pistols and more have been rocking the faces off of millions for decades. Starting with people like The King, Elvis Presley and Buddy Holly, to artists such as Jimi Hendrix and Bob Dylan; the style of Rock N' Roll can and has come in all different shapes, sizes, and types of leather pants. (Jimi left, Bob right).
So why the quick trip down memory lane? Because one of the greatest bands known for rocking formed just a few short years ago in 1973, AC/DC, will be releasing their 17th studio album and new tour dates with in the next year! Being able to say I have seen this band live before, this news is killer! The bands guitarist, Malcolm Young, will unfortunately not be touring with the band because of serious health issues. Instead Stevie Young, nephew of founding members Angus and Malcolm Young, will be his replacement. The band is celebrating their 40th anniversary of making music and it is rumored that they want the tour to be 40 dates or 40 shows long. The band has released a few singles from the new album, Rock Or Bust, that you can find anywhere on the internet. Stay tuned for these tour dates because you don't want to miss this!
