Jani Lane – R.I.P. The writers of RUFKM have always found Jani Lane to be an underrated singer/songwriter that simply wrote some great songs during and after Warrant’s heyday. Unfortunately for most he is known as the “Cherry Pie Guy” but wrote melodies and lyrics that were superior to most of his peers – “Heaven”, [...]
“Suppose there were no critics to tell us how to react to a picture, a play, or a new composition of music. Suppose we wandered innocent as the dawn into an art exhibition of unsigned paintings. By what standards, by what values would we decide whether they were good or bad, talented or untalented, success [...]
Rock on the Range – RUFKM Video Recap A long time ago (March 22nd and 23rd, 2010) in a galaxy far away (Columbus, OH) RUFKM attended Rock on the Range. Rock on the Range is a two day event featuring over 30 bands at Crew Stadium near Ohio State. We have captured all the sights, [...]
Lindsay Lohan is the greatest creative genius the world has ever seen. She is the very nexus of art, life, death, suffering, ecstasy and infinity itself.
Audio interview with Shaman’s Harvest guitarist Josh Hamler. He breaks down the band’s history, their recent success with “Dragonfly”, and how they are prone to injury. They currently have one band member in a cast and another in a wheelchair. At least they don’t have a one armed drummer. No, we are not fucking kidding you.
It’s not every day that you have the opportunity to see a great up and coming rock-n-roll band live. It’s even more rare when the opportunity presents itself to see such a band that arguably had one of the best rock releases in the past decade. And it is almost unheard of that such a [...]
Loose Cannon: Over the last month, I’ve been exchanging emails with Rachel Bolan, bassist and co-founder of Skid Row. He and guitarist Snake Sabo are participating in our “13 Stupid Questions” and we were already planning on seeing them on the Shiprocked Cruise along with Queensryche, Tesla, Ratt, and others. Then TylerDFC called me last [...]
We have some important news. Our “13 Stupid Questions” interviews with Charm City Devils and Drowning Pool were so damn popular that the RUFKM headquarters were contacted by the promoters of Cruefest 2. No, we are not F—ing kidding you. We are proud to make the following announcement of epic proportions: RUFKM’s KICK ASS CRUEFEST 2 [...]
There are very few times when our request for our “13 Stupid Questions” interview is refused from a band’s management/publicist. Sure, we get the occasional decline, but most artists are thrilled to participate in a series of questions that don’t bore them to death like most interviews. However, one rock star has proven to be quite elusive. Is it Kid Rock? [...]
There are few things more powerful than an entire crowd booing. I heard just that last night at the kickoff of the Nine Inch Nails/Jane’s Addiction “NINJA Tour” in W. Palm Beach at Cruzan Amphitheatre. 20,000 people began booing at the end of Nine Inch Nails set combined with a chorus of “Are You Fucking [...]
Oh my, how far the strung out, paunchy and not all that mighty in the first place have fallen. I sat down last night to watch the new variety show/harbinger of the end times “Osbournes Reloaded” on FOX (naturally). I was prepared to write a hard hitting review, full of journalistic integrity and terms like [...]
I love 80’s concerts. Not for the $10 beers, aging rockers or even the music, but for providing the opportunity to observe, in a relatively safe setting, some of mankind’s more unusual examples of tomfoolery. The S.S. Boondoggle embarked on another such voyage a few weeks back and all aboard were more than satisfied of [...]
Cannon and Boondoggle walk into a bar. Not just any bar, but the fabled and much hyped Vince Neil owned and sponsored “Dr. Feelgood’s Bar & Grill” in West Palm Beach, FL (www.drfeelgoodsbar.com). A quick puddle-jump in the RUFKM Corporate jet brought Captain Boondoggle to take in the sights and sounds with Cannon of the [...]
This has to be the greatest video ever. Metallica has just partnered with McDonalds, a psychotic stuffed bear with 17 foot arms, about 1,000 of their dancing friends, and a birthday that has simply gone wrong! They sent this new video for the last track of Death Magnetic called My Apocalypse to the RUFKM headquarters [...]
Here is an in depth look into the success of KISS and explores the deep symbolism of their lyrics. This 58 second clip from the new movie Role Models completely explains everything you need to know about this fine musical group and we would expect nothing else from a guy who drank a spunked draft [...]
The following article is cut and pasted from www.blog.wired.com and defines the phrase “Are You F—ing Kidding Me?.” To summarize, one of the world’s biggest selling bands has released a defective CD of epic proportions. If you have purchased this album, please sign this petition. http://www.gopetition.com/petitions/re-mix-or-remaster-death-magnetic.html It says that 2700 people have already done so [...]
