New movie about the 1980's! The 80's truly lives on in pop culture, music, movies and more. "Rock of Ages" has been one of the hottest Broadway musicals across the country for some time and now a movie set in Hollywood in 1987.
Nothing real special on the strip as far as acts, but it's still good to see that they are taking notice in the "entertainment capitol of the world".
What song was playing when you had your first kiss? What about your first slow dance?
How about during your first time?
Chances are, it was a power ballad – you know, those songs that double as the soundtrack to your life?
Those anthems that make you want to throw a lighter in the air and start singing along at the top of your lungs.
Now at the brand new arena rock cabaret in the center of Times Square, Power Balladz, you can do just that - celebrate the best music of the 70s, 80s, and 90s and unleash your inner rock star.
As graduation approached in the spring of 1983, I began to plan, well hope is more like it, that I could attend the US Festival in Southern California.
This was four days of live music and entertainment from all those acts we saw on MTV (back when they used to play music videos).
There were very few artists who did not play at The US Festival.
From Van Halen to the Scorpions, to The Clash and Missing Persons, there were more than 100 bands and musicians at The US Festival.
Do you remember LiveAid from the summer of 1985?
From Band-Aid - Do They Know it's Christmas to We are the World, it was a year that stood the 80s on it's head.
The 80s was all about money, fashion and fame! but, Live-Aid was all about giving and caring for your fellow man.
This is the first time I have seen Live-Aid in a few years, and it always has an impact on me.
On June 4, 1989, just 19 years ago, within sight of the 2008 Olympics Village, hundreds civilians were shot dead by the Chinese army during a bloody military operation to crush a democratic protest in Peking's (Beijing) Tiananmen Square.
The Chinese people and the world understand how important the site is as China puts it's best foot forward to the rest the world during this 29th Olympiad. The 4-5 billion other people on our planet are seeing China's potential as the global economies largest player.
Why would anyone want to murder John Lennon? I don't have an answer for that. It is tragic that we lost such an artist and human being as John Lennon.
The last day in John Lennon's short, prolific life was like a death in the family for more than Lennon's wife and son, Julian.
John Lennon's murder was, is, and always will be a great loss. When John Lennon was assassinated on Dec 8, 1980, many people, old enough to remember, would recall today exactly where they were, who they were with and what they were doing when they heard John Lennon was killed.
The mountain's crater had been rumbling and steaming for several weeks. I was camping near a mountain stream in the Cascade Mountain Range over 300 air miles from the mountain when it blew.
What I heard sounded like blasting nearby.
Odd for early Sunday morning. But our party didn't think much of it until we boarded our rigs for the trip home and tuned in the radio.
As it turned out, a tremendous explosion of trapped gases, generating about 500 times the force or the atom bomb dropped on Hiroshima, blew the entire top off Mount St. Helens.
