Jeff Beck's Stories are Legendary!

Written by
I love me a good Rock and Roll story... Especially when the story's coming from a true Rock and Roller. Well they don't get much more true than Jeff Beck, who took over for Eric Clapton when Slowhand left the Yardbirds, and THAT apprently "pissed off" Clapton.  That's just one…

The Beginning of a Great Adventure

Written by
I guess you could say I kinda sorta knew what I was getting into when I met Megan and quickly realized that she was "the one."  Then some time down the road a bit she told me that she was pregnant, and through tears of joy and a complete whirlwind…

Billy Gibbons Homage to Morrison, Richards, and More

Written by
Billy Gibbons is out with a new, somewhat foreboding video for "Desert High" that feels more like an Oliver Stone movie than a music video...  Anyway, during the visually stunning video and bluesy guitar riffs, Gibbons pays tribute to rock legends Jim Morrison, Keith Richards, and Gram Parsons. See if…

The Beat Goes On At Progressive Field

Written by
Part of the majesty of attending a Cleveland Indians game at Progressive Field is the melodic bass drum that eminates from atop the bleachers in left-center field.  The man behind that drum, of course, John Adams, who has been beating that drum at Tribe home games since the 1970's!  Unfortunately,…

Clowney Feelin' Brownsy?

Jadeveon Clowney to the Cleveland Brownies?!?!  Yes, the man we asked to the dance last year and turned us down is back at our doorstep talking about maybe a second chance.  The Browns offered Clowney a chance to play in Cleveland prior to the 2020 season, but he instead signed…

If your Browns fandom dates back to the team's heyday of the mid-1980's, you're familiar with the name Marty Schottenheimer.  If not, first, shame on you, and second, here's a bit of a history lesson...  Marty Schottenheimer was defensive coordinator for the Browns in 1980, officially taking over as head…

Ohio Loves the Hooch!

Written by
2020 has been rough on a lot people, but Ohioans more than others?  If you're basing your answer the amount of booze we consumed in the Buckeye State last year, then yeah, maybe!  According to the data from the Ohio Division of Liquor Control, sales of hard liquor were up…
