ROCK REPORT - Wednesday, January 22

Wednesday, Jan, 22 2014

Slash is scheduled to begin recording his third solo album next month with Myles Kennedy And The Conspirators.

Bassist Todd Kerns said that they will enter the studio next Month but there is no release date scheduled. He said when it’s done, it’s done.

“Apocalyptic Love” earned Slash his two first-ever #1 US rock songs: “You’re A Lie” and “Standing In The Sun.” The record’s third single, “Anastasia”, was a top 10 hit.

The Grammy Awards will end with a joint performance from Nine Inch Nails, Queens of the Stone Age, Dave Grohl, and Lindsey Buckingham.

This will be Grammy debuts for Nine Inch Nails and Queens of the Stone Age. All of them have worked together over the years. Dave Grohl has played drums on albums by Queens and NIN, whose lead singers Josh Hahmmee and Trent Reznor also contributed to the soundtrack for Grohl's "Sound City" documentary. Buckingham played guitar on NIN's latest album, "Hesitation Marks," and he also appeared in "Sound City."

The show happens this Sunday at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Leggings for men -- meggings-- are about to go mainstream.

Two men from Chicago launched Meggings Man Clothing in December and say their bold tight-fitting pants for men have been a hit with customers.

Unlike traditional leggings which are worn by women, meggings were designed with the male body in mind with wide waste bands.

There are currently 14 different styles in the collection including metallic finishes and camouflage print priced from $29.95.

If I saw myself dressed like that, I'd have to kick my own ass.

Frozen Censored....

Wednesday, Jan, 22 2014

If you haven’t seen it yet… there's a video on YouTube where someone unnecessarily bleeped songs and lines from the movie "Frozen."  It's pretty funny.

Looking for a new home?

Wednesday, Jan, 22 2014

 Iowans looking for a little extra space might want to consider a nearly 25,000 square foot home for sale at West Okoboji Lake in northwest Iowa. 

The lakefront home includes nine bedrooms, 16 bathrooms and a full-size Irish pub, but it won't come cheap. 

The Des Moines Register reports the owner is asking $14.9 million for the lakefront mansion.
