I was born in a hospital next to a dirt road in a small Georgia town. A town that everybody knows everyone and you can’t hide secrets. They still hold mine against me. Even after all these years, I still love being on the lake in North Georgia, wakeboarding and drinking cold beer.
After a few years of doing sports broadcasting, I stumbled into a building that said Rock 100.5 on the door and begged to get on the air to play great rock tunes and have some fun in a city that I always loved, Atlanta. After a lot of blood, sweat and tears, here I am!
The best part of Atlanta are the amazing bands that rock hard at these kickass venues and much of my weekend is spent jamming out with all of them. This city is always hopping, so let’s have some fun and debauchery in the middle of the night.
Love the Hawks, been a fan for life! Rooftop bars, anything on the water and good company is fine with me. I’m goofy, awkward and I dig anything crazy!
I’m all about bands riding the cash cow or jumping on the cash cow of others. Metallica has been riding their very own for years. I’m sure many of you are beyond irritated of listening to the “Old Town Road” remix. However, this version has a new twist to it. This new remix is set to Staind’s “It’s Been a While” and I’m all about it. Check it out below:
Listen, we all dream of that perfect someone that we will spend the rest of our life with, regardless of whether you want to admit it or not. Everybody wants some to laugh with, get drunk with and in all honesty just have someone so that they don’t die alone. That’s perfectly fine. For realists, finding that perfect someone means you are going to have to budge on certain things. All women are crazy. All guys are crazy. It’s how much crazy you are willing to do with that determines everything. You like this, she likes that, you want to do with this hobby, etc. No matter how perfect you think that special someone is, crazy will always poke it’s devilish head from around the corner.
What do guys want in a woman? Hot, nice ass, good personality, lets you have nights with your bros and doesn’t constantly ask why you aren’t paying her enough attention? I’m just going off the opinion of most guys, not necessarily my own. But, pretty basic nonetheless.
And then there’s the women. A greedy bunch they can sometimes be. They want the perfect man, Mr. Prince Charming. They want you to have intelligence, a sense of humor, know how to cook, have a sense of style and about 15 other things. Read for yourself:
Papa Roach released an acoustic video of their song “Come Around.” Super cool to see. I’ve always been a big Papa Roach fan and can’t wait to see them August 2nd at the Roxy. They’ll have Asking Alexandria and Bad Wolves supporting and that is honestly one hell of a lineup. Video below:
Hey ROCK family, it’s Jackson. Corky Laing is my special guest today! Great dude and great interview! Short list of topics:
*I just turned 30 and Corky was in disbelief that I didn’t invite him to my birthday bash. “I thought I knew you, Jackson.”
*He was lonely and writing these letters was his timeline.
*New book “Letters To Sarah” – available now
*His mother encouraged his drumming career
*His father told him to do something special with his talent
*When his mother passed, how did he replace that outlet?
*Partying with Robin Williams and John Belushi
* “It’s all luck.”
Wow! This video really stopped me in my tracks today and brought tears to my eyes. If you’re part of the belief that men shouldn’t cry, GET OVER YOURSELF. If you can watch this video and not shed a single tear, you’re not human. A blind and autistic 22-year old man went on America’s Got Talent and crushed it! Just see for yourself.
