California's own Mac Sabbath made their way to Florida to deliver their Drive-Thru Metal to a very appreciative Downtown Orlando crowd.
Mac Sabbath is a solid, Black Sabbath tribute band with a decidedly twisted twist. They change all of the song titles and lyrics to tributize fast food. Take Iron Man, it's called Frying Pan. Fairies Wear Boots is, Cherries Are Fruits and well, you get the picture.
Ronald Osborne delivers a very Ozzy performance, but in a Ronald McDonald clown suit. Lead guitar ... Read More

David Coverdale and Whitesnake rolled into The Hard Rock Live at Universal Orlando Monday night in support of Whitesnake's new album Purple. An album of Deep Purple songs covering the era in which David Coverdale fronted Deep Purple ('73-'76).
Soon to be 64 years old, Coverdale has definitely lost a great deal of his vocal range. However, his loss of vocal range did not affect his ability to charm the crowd. His frontman skills are still sharp and his vocals were on par ... Read More

Ladies and gentlemen, The Rolling Stones!!!
Florida was lucky to get one of the limited dates for the Zip Code North American Tour 2015. Orlando was even luckier to be chosen for the date. Luckier still, was my wife Lynn, to have won 2 tickets from WMMO to be able to attend the show.
The newly renovated Orlando Citrus Bowl filled with approx. 47,000 fans, played host to The Rolling Stones Zip Code Tour.
The show was everything you might expect from The Stones. Big, ... Read More

Volbeat @ House of Blues Lake Buena Vista, Florida 05/29/12
With Eye Empire and Gorillafight
Words by Ronman
Up until just several weeks ago, I had no idea who Volbeat was. No clue. A friend of mine turned me onto this Danish Metal act. This friend of mine has been absolutely geeking out on this band, so I had to give them a listen. As it turned out, their song, "Warrior's Call", has been getting some serious air time on WJRR, our local rock station. I had heard the ... Read More

Anthrax with Death Angel and Testament
House of Blues, Orlando Florida 11/01/11
Words/Photos by Ron Man
I'm not going to bore you with the history of Anthrax. For that you can go to Wikipedia.
I will say that after the departure of lead singer, Joey Belladonna in '92, I was really no longer a fan. For me, it was kind of like when David Lee Roth was out of Van Halen, the magic was gone. The difference being, Van Halen went on to be an even ... Read More

I had no intention of even going to this concert until I found out that my friend's band was the opener. I got free tickets!
Ratt. They were big in the 80's. I was a huge fan of their "Out of The Cellar" LP. "Round And Round", "Lack Of Communication", "Back For More", "Wanted Man", all great tunes. That was 1984. Their next effort, "Invasion Of Your Privacy" was a bit light for my tastes as I had since discovered Anthrax and Metallica. ... Read More

The Whitesnake/Judas Priest show in St. Augustine August 15, 2009, was probably a disappointment for a handful of fans that were there to see Whitesnake. Lead singer David Coverdale developed vocal cord problems and Whitesnake was forced to cancel the remainder of their U.S. tour, including their stop in St. Aug. Fortunately, I wasn't one of those disappointed fans. I was there to see and ... Read More

Richard Cheese & Lounge Against The Machine
Plaza Theater Orlando, Florida

I was first exposed to Richard Cheese when I saw the "NEW" Dawn of The Dead back in 2004. I heard this swanky, cheesy, Sinatra-esque song that sounded oddly familiar. It was in fact, Disturbed's "Down With The Sickness." I was hooked!
I've included a link to Wikipedia which pretty much explains all of what Richard Cheese is about. His Myspace as well as Youtube will have music that you ... Read More
