Recommended Posts

It`s already the middle of March, the weeks are flying by now!

 

Last year I went to a nice area called Norfolk, quite close to where Ian lives, didn`t bump into him though! :tumbsup:

 

Does anyone have any holidays or trips planned for the forthcoming months ahead? :unsure:

I think I said this last year, but my wife and I were hoping to get across to New Zealand for a North to South or vice versa drive. But it looks like mostly because of me this is just not going to be affordable. Other issue being, neither of us really want to be there in Winter so we've kind of missed our chance for the first half of the year. It's a shame because there are some really, really cheap deals going at the moment.

 

I'm having some severe holiday withdrawal symptoms, though.

Yeah, that's one thing I was thinking about Winter, or even Autumn over there... it would probably be super stunning for photography. But I imagine it would be all year round. I'd love to be able to go for a swim etc. while there.

Off to Almiyate in Spain over the next few weeks to visit the in-laws! Just for a week....i's a tiny place with only 2 bars...and only 1 worth going in.

But my stump is there (don't ask!) I hope I can see it again for old times sake!

Headed to NYC in a few for a concert and to run around the city for a day.

 

Beyond that, nothing of HUGE importance planned until probably June. But, hoping for a few good days here and there this summer. (Maybe a few amusement parks and head back to Toronto or somewhere new in Canada.)

Ohhhhhhh, she's on the bullet train to Hell, trrrrrrrust me! :D

 

As for me I have to go to Chicago and Iowa (Iowa????? What the fuck???) in a few weeks and NYC in June, which could possibly lead me to crashing Pete's party in NJ.

 

Vegas is in the cards too but fuck knows when. Shoulda been last week but nope.

Well, this one's come a bit from out of nowhere, but looks like my wife is keen for a holiday. If I had it my way, we'd currently be in tens of thousands of dollars of debt and be constant holidayers, but luckily my wife is the sensible one and it's been kept at a 'workable' level - well, for her anyway. My debts are still ridiculous.

 

I'm always ready to go, but now that she's keen too we're looking for some good deals. I am painfully in debt and I will really be hoping to sell some CDs or something soon, but I'm excited. If it happens. We'll see...

Well, it's booked! Completely unaffordable, but booked. All things permitting, my wife and I are off to the Cook Islands in September this year. :)

Where are the Cook Islands? :unsure:

East of Australia - beyond New Zealand, beyond Fiji, beyond Samoa (though a little lower) and out right near Tahiti. People say the Cook Islands are as nice as Tahiti was 20 years ago, before commercialism.

Yeah, I'd still love to go to Hawaii... but I always prefer the quite islands in places like that. From pictures I've seen, Honolulu looks like any big city, but on the beach. Still, would love to go there. :)

 

Hope to get some good piccies in the Cook Islands too.

When I got married to my first wife, we went to Los Angeles for 6 nights, drove to Vegas for 4 nights - got married, flew over the Grand Canyon by Helicopter, flew to San Francisco for 4 nights(not by Helicopter :lol: ) went to Alcatrazz and Yosemite National Park, then flew to Honolulu for our honeymoon.

 

Thought it was nice, went to Pearl Harbour which was fantastic and very moving. Thought there were too many McDonalds around for my liking though, way too commercial for me, very attractive place :tumbsup:

 

Agreed with having money then and none now :crying:

    • Listening to this in a shopping centre with the phone to my ear and it sounds ok. But overall underwhelmed. Bed City were awesome and his vocal we top notch. But I like to think I can disregard that and hear it for what it is. I think it's the Christian stuff that is holding me back. And I dealt with Stryper stuff no problems so I'm trying to figure out why this isn't sitting well I guess times have changed and styper always came off as a bit gimmicky or shticky and kind of fun. It's also 30 years later and I really don't care Bout the Christian messages. They are boring now. Even Stryper aren't as obvious in their lyrics these days. Or maybe it's all just a reminder of the shit Josh did that landed him in jail? Silly to constantly remind people of that. Would prefer just some fun rock music I think.  
    • Nate seems like a legit nice guy too… From his FB page: I just want to thank everyone for such a positive response on the latest announcement! It means the world❤️ I will do my absolute best to honor Cj’s legacy and keep his name alive each show. Hope to see you all soon Best Regards  Nate Peck   And from earlier this year, this lovely pic of him and CJ
    • On Instagram where Stevie Rachelle posted the link to the story it was crazy how many people don't know anything about the bands recent history or read the article. Several people moaning how they are replacing him too quick etc without realising he has been touring with the band since last year when he was covering for a recovering CJ and that Nate and CJ actually became really good friends. CJ would have wanted them to carry on and gave this guy his blessing, essentially.

    • Good news.  Nate seems like a great dude and from what I've seen, he does a nice job.  I think he's the right guy for that gig being he was filling in with CJ's blessing and he has the right tone in his voice to do the songs justice.  Granted, there's no replacing CJ's unique voice but good that they'll still be out there celebrating the music. One thing I wonder is if they'll maybe considering doing some new music with Nate?  I mean, he's a young guy and would probably love to record some new music with them.  Not sure how much demand there would be for it but I like to see them put out a new song at least and just see how it goes.  It would be nice to give Nate something of his own in the setlist too.  I'm not gonna hold my breath though lol.

    • FireHouse officially name Nate Peck as their new full-time frontman and lead vocalist Metal Sludge — News from the FireHouse camp as they announce their new lead vocalist. Fans of FireHouse and our readers here at Metal Sludge are all aware of the unfortunate news of CJ Snare‘s sad passing back in April and now the band have named his replacement. The band had been performing with fill-in vocalist Nate Peck since 2023 when Snare had to take a leave to deal with medical issues and surgery. Now the band are embracing the move forward and have officially named Nate Peck as their new frontman and vocalist. Read the band’s full statement below as was shared on their social media.     Nate Peck and FireHouse paying tribute to CJ Snare   **AMERICAN ROCK BAND FIREHOUSE ANNOUNCES NEW VOCALIST, NATE PECK** With the untimely passing of CJ Snare, American rock band, FireHouse, has officially announced their new lead vocalist, Nate Peck. Peck, 2023 American Idol golden ticket recipient, performed an outstanding audition for Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie. Richie praised Nate’s performance saying, “That was brilliant…The best rock singer EVER that we’ve had. You’ve got it!” Katy Perry looked to the sky and said, “Actually, he’s SO good!” High praises from all 3 judges got him unanimous consent to move onto the next level of the competition. Peck ultimately decided to leave the show to pursue his career in music his own way: playing live music in Nashville’s booming rock scene and guest singing with national artists like Jack Russell’s Great White. Peck was first introduced to Bill Leverty by Jack Russell’s Great White guitarist, Robbie Lochner. Leverty explained, “When I first heard Nate’s vocal range, tone and control, I immediately knew that he’d be the perfect fit, filling in for CJ who was recovering from surgery. I advocated hard to get Nate out to play at New England Rockfest in October of 2023. He learned our songs very quickly and absolutely crushed it at the show. I then sent some video to CJ and he agreed saying, THAT’S the guy!” CJ and Nate immediately became very good friends. According to Peck, “CJ and I would talk regularly, a few times a week. He would give me vocal coaching, advice on touring and life in general. He was definitely a great mentor for me.” Peck has been singing with FireHouse since October of 2023, wowing audiences around the country. “I am honored to be working with these guys and singing these great songs.” FireHouse music will stand the test of time. Catch them on tour performing their hits “Love of a Lifetime”, “When I Look Into Your Eyes”, “Don’t Treat Me Bad”, “All She Wrote”, “Reach for the Sky”, “Shake and Tumble” and many more, bringing the fans the melodic hard rock they’ve loved for decades. https://metalsludge.tv/firehouse-officially-name-nate-peck-as-their-new-full-time-frontman-and-lead-vocalist/
