I read online that ‘The Muggs’ were going to be playing in Ypsilanti, Michigan at a cool little place called Woodruff’s last Friday night (April 11, 2014) and that just so happened to be my birthday.  I figured it was divine intervention and that I needed to go check out the show.   What I didn’t know was that what was really happening at Woodruff’s was FUZZ FEST!!   A three day rock and roll extravaganza featuring 33 Michigan bands on two stages!

Chuck, what does this have to do with seeing Clutch (with special guests The Sword, and American Sharks) at the Fillmore last Saturday in dazzling Detroit?

The Black Crowes, Tedeschi Trucks Band, and London Souls...Rock out! Have I mentioned how much I love music?  🙂  I'm sure I have!  While a metalhead at heart, I also have a deep love for what I'm going to call blues rock.  Music in the vein of Hendrix, Robin Trower,...

Anthrax – Metal in the Motor City!

Anthrax! I had the good fortune to check out the Metal Alliance tour featuring Anthrax (with Exodus, High On Fire, Municipal Waste, and Holy Grail) at the Fillmore in Detroit last Saturday (April 6, 2013).  It was a non-stop headbanging extravaganza!  The bonus was...
