August Rock 50 Preview

Posted on Aug.15, 2012 under Rock 50

H! Everyone,

If you like Metal and Hard Rock check out our show airing Saturday, August 18, 2012. Last month, I said I’d play another Blues segment in the second hour of the show, however, I’ve canceled that idea. Instead, I’ll play the entire Deep Purple CD titled “Machine Head,” featuring the great Jon Lord on keyboards/Hammond to honor his passing in July.

We will also be playing some solid, heavy – very heavy- Metal bands for you – i.e. Soilwork, Metallica and Lamb of God, as well as some Hard Rock/Jazz from Sabbath. We’ll have “Metal Gods” and Lemmy with Motorhead, as well as some brand new stuff. I guess at some point, probably next year, I’ll try to fit in another Blues segment.

Previews (dates to be announced):

Sept – 9/11 tribute to the fallen/ NY, NY
October – Halloween Show
November – Armistice Show
December – Christmas Show

Stay safe. Stay strong.

    Hi Bill when is Beyond Aston going to be released. I constantly visit your website expecting the big announcement but to mine and all your fans disappointment it never appears. Come on Bill pull your finger out and finish it. Is there any chance of you touring with your Band and coming home to England for some dates. I think your solo music is awesome and can not wait for the next instalment.

    All the best

    A Jon Lord tribute is a very classy thing to do, thanks! I’m sure he’d be honored.
