Manny Roth- Cafe Wha Owner Passes

cafe-wha I feel very fortunate to have played the Wha It has/had so much history, important history. I remember saying to the audience between songs, while looking down at the stage; “Folks if the Duct Tape here could talk, there’d be some stories to tell.”

Manny was a great guy, when I played there he was still in ownership and he treated us right. Rock on Manny!

Louder Than Hell Authors- Jon Wiederhorn & Katherine Turman Discuss the Definitive Oral History of Metal. It is our opinion at GRS that it’s going to be a long time before anyone will ever dare write a book on the subject. This is the most complete, well structured book on Metal we have ever seen and a great read!

Plus Music from Steve Cone, The Compulsions, Only Living Boy, Scott Gailor, Slow Forward and The Muggs. Aw Yeah!

Blues Legend Johnny Winter Passes

We are so saddened  by the passing of this Blues legend. If  there was anyone who carried the torch for this  American art form  it was Johnny, even when most in America could’ve cared less about the Blues, Johnny was it’s Champion. He will be missed. God bless Johnny Winter.
