Friday's Rockin' Roundup - New Season of Hell's Kitchen Edition

I didn’t think it was possible. After getting a spring season of Hell’s Kitchen, followed by a summer season of Master Chef, I thought that Fox was done with Gordon Ramsay for a while. Perhaps there would be a new Kitchen Nightmares, but other than that, I figured there would be nothing until 2011.

Well, during this week’s finale of Master Chef, Fox aired commercials for a brand new season of Hell’s Kitchen that starts next Wednesday night (September 22). Cousin Ryo is one very excited individual. Anyone who reads The Guru with any regularity knows my love for Gordon Ramsay and Hell’s Kitchen. Knowing that I get a fall season of it (the first one in the shows history) has me giddy. If you want to see some seriously enjoyable entertainment, tune in to Fox Wednesday night at 8:00 pm Eastern.

Here’s what rocked this week:

From Good Homes Playing December Shows
The reunion continues, at least on the band’s own terms. One year after their first official reunion show, From Good Homes is back at it. This December they will be performing two nights at the Wellmont Theater in Montclair, New Jersey. These shows will take place on Friday, December 17th and Saturday, December 18th and are guaranteed to be amazing. Tickets are dirt cheap (at $28) and go on sale this Friday (as in today) at high noon. Visit to get yours.

The String Quartet to Pop and Rock Wedding Essentials
There’s a new tribute album out, but not in the typical fashion that we’ve grown accustomed to. This time around, it’s a tribute album to wedding essentials. With songs such as Elton John’s Your Song, Dave Matthews Band’s Crash Into Me, and Journey’s Open Arms given the string make over, it will be interesting to hear this album in its entirety. Visit for more information or to purchase this album.

Vie’s Verses
Another edition of Vie’s Verses has published over at Hard Rock Hideout. This time around I was asking which metal package tour would you like to see next year. You can check out the column by clicking on the link above.

Bruce Springsteen Debuts The Promise Documentary
And finally, there’s this little gem: Bruce Springsteen debuted the documentary that will be included in the Darkness On The Edge Of Town boxed set that is due out in November (2 months and counting). The documentary will also air on HBO on October 7th. Looks like I’ll have to find a friend who has HBO.
