A7X Lullabys!

A7X Lullabys!

A few months ago, I wrote about the joy that is Rockabye Baby! and their Iron Maiden cover album. Well Blitz Nation I have found you more! This album comes from a different group called Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star. As it turns out, TTLRS is the largest line of lullaby cover music in the world! I know, it blew my mind too, but apparently there's a market for that. There latest album is titled "Lullaby Versions of Avenged Sevenfold V2" and yes, there is a V1. I have to say, the music is impressive, even if it is for little kids. My mom always told me I had the brain of a 3 year old, so I guess it makes sense...

Check out "Hail to the King" below and you can get more information over HERE!

Check Out Corey Taylor Covering David Bowie!

Check Out Corey Taylor Covering David Bowie!

If you have not yet heard, there is a "Celebrating David Bowie" tour that is circling the globe to honor the late musician. On Tuesday and Wednesday of this week, the show stopped in LA at the Wiltern Theater. There was an incredible list of performers for the event, but one of the stand outs was Corey Taylor from Slipknot and Stone Sour. Taylor has worked with a number of artists recently, including Korn, but if you ask me, this may be one of his best performances yet. Check it out below!

More details for the property can be found at http://924belair.com/
