Happy Birthday, Johnny Depp

Tomorrow (June 9) is Johnny Depp's birthday...he's turning 55. I know there are rumors circulating about his health because of a recent photo taken of him looking not quite like the Johnny we've known.Well, I've seen that photo and I didn't think it was unusual for someone who was a little worn out from a show to look like that. Anyway, US Magazine reports that he's healthy and that there are no health concerns. 

Just check out this recent photo shoot (click here - Johnny Depp Photoshoot).  He definitely hasn't lost it. If you've followed Johnny's history, you'll know that he dons certain looks for very specific reasons, including to fit certain movie roles. Maybe he has a movie in the works after this tour?

In any case, let's just wish him a Happy 55th Birthday!!!  We all love you, Johnny Depp!!!

Same Title, Different Song

While I was driving to work this morning, I heard a remake of a song that I know I'd heard before. And it made me realize that many times, there are songs with the same title but are not the same songs at all. For instance, there's this song which I'm pretty sure you're familiar with.

The one I heard on the radio was a remake from Five Finger Death Punch, which I like, but delivers a much different impact than the Offspring's version. Listen for yourself.

What I did want to actually compare this song to is another song with the same title performed and recorded by a band known as Open Fire. They're not currently together but they did record some really good original hard rock/thrash metal tunes before the grunge era. (Search my blog for previous posts about them if you're curious).

I think I'll go find some more songs with the same title but are totally different and I'll share them here.

The Heroin Diaries 10th Anniversary

Wow! Can you believe it's been 10 years already since the release of The Heroin Diaries?  If you check out PledgeMusic, you can pre-order a copy of the album, anniversary shirt, signed book, the graphic novel that was announced at Comicon, and more!

By the way, there is also an option to get signed copies of the CD plus a special Access Pass that gives you a digital download and access to Sixx:AM update. This sounds exciting!

Have you heard the 2017 version of "Life is Beautiful"?  It's amazing...but don't take my word for it. Listen to it yourself here:
