While we wait for the release of Fleetwood Mac’s Tango in the Night 30th anniversary album, earlier last week we heard from Stevie Nicks on her thoughts of a new Fleetwood Mac album. The singer who has been outspoken about the Napster issue in 1999-2000 had stated that an album is unlikely.
Ex-Boston drummer Sib Hashian had passed away while on the Legends of Rock Cruise. He had collapsed on stage Wednesday. Sib’s best known work was being the drummer of Boston in the 70s and also the albums Third Stage and Corporate America. Besides Boston, he would play drums for Boston alumni Barry Goudreau on his solo projects. His death comes a little after 10 years from Brad Delp’s.
In 2012, Sib would be involved in local Boston show called Scotch’s PFG-TV. His daughter Lauren has been involved with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. RIP Sib.
Sadly, 10 years ago today, we lost Brad Delp of the band Boston. If you love your classic rock station or you grew up in the 70s, you definitely heard of Boston and the iconic voice of Brad Delp. Boston was known for “More than a Feeling,” “Piece of Mind,” “Foreplay/Longtime,” “Don’t Look Back” and more. Boston would be on hiatus due to mainly legal issues after their second album and would not return until 1986 with Third Stage.
Boston’s Third Stage would return the band to #1 with “Amanda” and also three other hits. The album is notable for having mainly Delp and Tom Scholz playing on the album, and keeping the usual Boston sound.
In the 1990s, Boston would press on, but without Brad Delp in the beginning. Delp and Scholz would have their disagreements before the 90s arrived with Delp leaving Boston in the end. He would join Boston alumni Barry Goudreau to form RTZ (Return to Zero).
Delp would re-join Boston in the mid-90s for the Walk On tour and would stay with both Boston and RTZ until his death in 2007.
Unlike, being a day late with U2’s Pop 20 Year Anniversary, we also want to say happy birthday to late Chris Squire who is sadly no longer with us. Chris Squire was the bassist of Yes and played on every album (21 of them from 1969-2014) with the band. Chris Squire sadly passed away due to leukemia on June 27, 2015 in Phoenix, Arizona. He would be 69 years old today.
For tomorrow, we will have Yes’ “Love Will Find a Way” for next week’s intro vid.
If you grew up in the 80s and 90s, most likely you ran into Duck Hunt. When you got your NES for Christmas or your birthday, it likely came with Super Mario Brothers and Duck Hunt, and course, the NES Zapper! When Super Mario frustrated you, you would go to Duck Hunt and give that a try. And after you couldn’t get the duck for the 7th time, the dog would laugh at you.
thirty years later, duck hunt on vr
And after 30 years later, Duck Hunt is now on Virtual Reality!
If you got the Oculus Rift, you can get yourself Duck Hunt VR on Android. This was made by Joesph Delgado in February 2016. At the time, he was a student and at the age of 21. So, if your interested in playing Duck Hunt on VR and you have the Oculus Rift, get yourself the app.
