Johnnie Walker

I've never been good at filling these things out, but here it goes. I like long walks in cold mountain air, preferably with snow on the ground. I enjoy drinking fine soda by the crackling fire, and deep tissue massage. I hope to one day grow up an become and astronaut, so I can fly to Venus to see if that's really where women come from. If it's true, I'll bring one back for you, too. Unless it's a dude you want, and then you're out of luck...sorry. My favorite month is October, because Halloween is the best holiday ever! It allows me to openly proclaim my love and obsession with scary movies without being seen as some sort of lunatic. Okay, not too much of a lunatic. I'm a huge fan of rock and metal music, and you'll often hear me blasting the control room speakers into oblivion every night during my show. My engineer doesn't like me very much, since he has to fix them. Sorry, Mike.

Can You Do Video Game Stuff in Real Life? Real(istic) Auto Racing [VIDEO]

It seems like everyone is a gamer now, or at least claims to be. Even my nephew is a bad-ass on the Xbox, killing bad guys and fragging teammates by the hundreds. One of my favorite comedy/gaming/video crews created an internet series called Immersion a while back, and it's finally returned for season two!

Guitar Shredder of the Week – Mark Tremonti Live Guitar Solo [VIDEO]

This week's shredder is Mark Tremonti. He's a great player, and a fantastic songwriter. He's written huge songs for Creed, Alter Bridge and now his solo band, Tremonti. He's got a great sense of melody and song structure, and on top of that, he's a good singer and an amazing guitarist!

KLAQ’s Guitar Shredder for the Week – Balloonfest’s Mark Tremonti Trading Licks [VIDEO]

This week, I want to feature the guitar skills of Mark Tremonti. He's kind of an underrated guitar player, since he tends to play more for the song instead of the shred, but when he cuts loose, he can really cut loose! I found these videos a while back, with guitar shred king Rusty Cooley and Mark trading off licks.

Balloonfest Week Has Officially Begun – Part of Mark Tremonti Has Arrived!

Okay, that sounded a little weird. Not actually a part of HIM has arrived, but his gear has arrived. For the first time I can remember in Balloonfest history, one of the bands has shipped their gear to us!

Usually we just find scraggly-looking musicians, struggling with gear coming off the baggage carousel at the airport, hoping for either a vegan meal or Whataburger.

Maybe you've also found some cool new ideas and licks you can learn from one of his early instructional videos, too!

This is the Official Launch of the “Lzzy Hale Posing in Playboy” Campaign

So, Lzzy recently was asked about her Playboy interview, and whether she'd ever consider posing for them if they asked. Because she is one of the most awesome rock chicks to walk the face of the earth, she didn't say no! I love this girl so much!
I haven't really been asked that a lot. I was thinking about it the other day.

New FX Series “The Bridge” Creepy Preview Still Manages to Make El Paso Look Like a Small Cowboys Town [VIDEO]

Hey, don't get me wrong, I'm all for more shows filmed and based here, really. But what I'd really like for the shows to do, is stop portraying El Paso like Hollywood thinks of El Paso. Good example, Kill Bill. All you're left with the impression of El Paso is a small mission in the middle of freaking nowhere.

This trailer for the new show "The Bridge" looks pretty creepy and cool...

What's T-Mac been up to recently? He's stayed really busy musically, and has even toured quite a bit with Billy Sheehan, Mike Portnoy and Derek Sherinian, playing some serious music for the people. Check out Thursday's shred song for today, Billy Sheehan's "Shy Boy", originally written for Billy's band Talas, and then re-recorded with Van Halen maniac David Lee Roth!

Your Guitar Shredder of the Week – Tony MacAlpine for Wednesday – Tears of Sahara [VIDEO]

Wednesday on the Shredder of the Week brings us a trip back to big hair and lots of reverb. Guitar master Tony MacAlpine plays one of the songs that he released on his 1987 album Maximum Security on PolyGram...whoa, there's a name from the past, PolyGram. They died a horrible label death...eventually being absorbed into Universal Music Group.

Balloonfest Sunday is Going to Be a Really Cool Acoustic Rock Day

At first glance, an acoustic day at Balloonfest 2013 seems kind of weird. But the more you think about it, the better the idea gets! It's something we haven't done since Zakk Wylde came down and performed songs from his then new album Book of Shadows. (Anyone else remember that?) That was a really cool show, and something people really didn't expect from Zakk at the time...heck, it's still odd to think of Zakk on an acoustic guitar, even though he's just done an acoustic tour.

Your Guitar Shredder of the Week – Tony MacAlpine for Tuesday – The Violin Song [VIDEO]

Day two of Tony MacAlpine week features a song from Tony's album Premonition, called "The Violin Song". This is one of the tracks from the album that features keyboard master Jens Johansson. The melody on this one is really good, and grabs you right away.

Tony began his classical training at five years old, and trained on classical piano and violin at the Springfield Conservatory of Music in Massachusetts.
