Friday's Rockin' Roundup - Spring Training Edition

Other than music, your cousin Ryo has one thing that he is extremely passionate about…baseball. Music was my first love, my longest love, my truest and dearest love, but baseball has always been a close second. Since the age of 10, baseball has mesmerized me and encapsulated me. I am a prisoner to the game, but I don’t mind.

Spring Training starts next week. Players have already reported to begin workouts and exhibition games will begin after that. Then there will be the World Baseball Classic followed by Opening Day. Color me happy. And with baseball looming around the corner that means one other thing is almost here. Spring. That’s something I can’t wait for.

Here’s what I found on the web this week when I wasn’t reading about the upcoming major league baseball season:

At Rock Town Hall, an interesting question was raised: how many songs do you know that mention Bob Dylan’s name? I thought of two right off the bat, Hootie and the Blowfish’s Hold My Hand (which someone did mention) and Wilco’s Bob Dylan’s Beard, (which someone mentioned a little later). Check it out and see if you could be the Last Man Standing.

Bring Back Glam brought back something that I haven’t seen in years, the patch filled denim jacket. You know, the one that has all the rock band patches all over it. Only, this wasn’t an old one, this one is current and still worn on occasion.

Trent Reznor is saying that this may be the end of Nine Inch Nails for a long, long while. Do I believe him? I don’t know. I never believe these rockers when they say they are going away, but who knows? With Trent, anything is possible.

The Music Elitist is hating Entertainment Weekly right now, and rightfully so. This is a short rant, but it is oh so enjoyable.

And finally, Christine over at Hell on High Heels has posted her review of Motley Crue from Grand Rapids Michigan, complete with the strangest pre-concert happening I have ever heard of. Seriously.
