Redneck Love Poem

Susie Lee done fell in love,
she planned to marry Joe.
She was so-o-o happy 'bout it all,
she told her Pappy so.

Pappy told her, "Susie Gal,
you'll have to find another.
I'd just as soon yo' Ma don't know,
but Joe is yo' half brother."

So Susie put aside her Joe,
and planned to marry Will.
But after telling Pappy so,
he said, "there's trouble still!"

"You cannot marry Will, my gal,
and please don't tell yo' mother.
But Will and Joe, and several mo'
I know is yo' half brother."

But Ma knew and said, "my child,
just do what makes yo' happy.
Marry Will or marry Joe;
You ain't no kin to Pappy."

Pole Dancing ..It's Not For Everyone

The 100 Best Rock Drummers Ever

Mike Portnoy, Dream Theater

Well, here it is, The 100 Best Rock Drummers Ever! From early rock 'n' rollers, to metal powerhouses, we've listed the best rock drummers the world has ever seen.

Of course, music and drumming is subjective, and everyone will have their own idea of who the best drummers are. You might not agree with the list and that's fine. It's more of a ball park ranking than anything truly exact.

Ok, we'll start off at the bottom and work our way up to the coveted number one spot.

Alice In Chains

This is not quite a review, for I haven't heard the entire CD. It's set to be released in less than 2 weeks, on September 29th. But I can say that what I've heard so far, these guys haven't missed a beat! Most would think that the loss of a band member, especially one with the unique voice of Layne Staley, would be the beginning of a band's demise. I don't think so. I saw them live in concert a few years back just after they hired new lead singer William DuVall, and not only did he accomplish live what he needed to, he fulfilled Staley's absence perfectly.

There are very few bands who have risen to prominence, and then subsequently continued great success after replacing a lead singer. One of the exceptions was AC/DC, who in 1980 was forced to replace Bon Scott with Brian Johnson upon Scott's death, only to go on and record many of the bands best-selling albums. One could also argue that Van Halen pulled it off as well with the replacement of David Lee Roth with Sammy Hagar in 1985. They not only maintained their fame and status, but went on to record several more classic tunes.

And now, Alice In Chains is coming out with their first new album in almost 14 years! Not only is this incredible, but it's a sweet tribute to their former co-founder and lead singer. What I've heard so far from this new album, titled "Black Gives Way to Blue" is very, very good. Kudos to Jerry Cantrell for all he's done to make this possible!

Here is a "Black Gives Way to Blue" sneak preview.

Alice In Chains' official website contains two new full tracks: "Check My Brain", and "A Looking In View"

Probably at least 20 hits you've heard before in their Discography
