Best Rock/Guitar Films

Monday, December 30th, 2019

I’ll add to this post as I remember them, but here are some of my fave rock/guitar films. Some just have great cameos or feature cool guitar scenes (did you know Slash was in “The Dead Pool?”). I’ve left out gig DVDs (or there would be a million from Slash, Aerosmith, Extreme etc). Just finished Bill & Ted 2 for the millionth time. Did you know STATION was a typo in the script? The intro to the KISS song “God Gave Rock and Roll to You” in this film was done by Steve Vai and is epic.


Some I have to check out:

20 Feet From Stardom, Searching for Sugarman, Only Lovers Left Alive, Satan and Adam.


I’ll follow up with some of my favourite songs, too. That might be a LONG post…

Getting up Stronger

Saturday, December 28th, 2019

Not long out of a bad situation, I have decided to pick myself back up and get into my music again properly. I tend to get back up even stronger than before and show life what I can do.

This is a great song for such an occasion…



My music has been a constant throughout my life – I love it. I have a long list of acoustic numbers which I have been learning over the course of the year. List below (in flux). I fancy adding a Loverboy or Enuff Z’ Nuff song but those may be too obscure for the average punter.
