Alter Bridge Continues its Hard Rock Journey!...

Many alternative hard rock fans may not know this, but there is a band that is comprised of three of the four members of, arguably,  one of the best and most successful bands in rock-n-roll history!  They already have released three epic albums.  Their live shows are something anyone in attendance will surely never forget.  And the style, talent and musicianship stands above their peers.  Who are they you may ask?…they the Alter Bridge! Formed in Orlando, FL in 2004 after the breakup of Creed, Alter Bridge feature former Creed members Mark Tremonti (lead guitar/backing vocals), Scott Phillips (drums) and Brian Marshall (bass).  After holding auditions for the new project without finding a suitable vocalist, they hand choose Myles Kennedy (lead vocals), formerly of  to front The Mayfield Four, a band which the former Creed members were fans of.  Mark Tremonti has stated the the name Alter Bridge is taken after an actual bridge which used to be on Alter Road near his home in Detroit. The band began working on their debut album, entitled One Day Remains, was released on August 10, 2004 by Wind-up Records (the record label for Creed).  Despite the great success of Creed, One Day Remains received mixed reviews upon its release and only managed to achieve gold status.  This was a far cry from the success three of the four members were used to, as Creed has achieved multi-platinum status many times over.  One Day Remains did however peak at the #5 position on the Billboard Charts for fourteen weeks. Before the final leg of the One Day Remains tour in 2006, Alter Bridge’s relationship with Wind-up Records, who did not share the band’s vision, began to deteriorate. The band asked to be released from the label since the release of One Day Remains, but their request...

Green Day: Contemporary Punk Icons!...

Since their claim to fame with the classic release Dookie, Green Day has been Juggernauts the the punk rock music scene.  Formed in 1987, then under the name Sweet Children, by friends Billie Joe Armstrong and Mike Dirnt, 15 years old at the time, along with Sean Hughes and former Isocracy drummer John ‘Al Sobrante’ Kiffmeyer.  The band made their first EP, 1,000 Hours, after signing to Lookout! Records.  To avoid confusion with a band named Sweet Baby, the band changed their name to Green day, inspired by their fondness of marijuana. After the departure of Hughes and Kiffmeyer, the band recruited The Lookouts drummer Tré Cool, first as a replacement, then eventually as a permanent band member.  With this new, power trio line-up, Green Day released the second studio album Kerplunk, which sold 50,000 copies in the United States.  Kerplunk’s success in the underground punk music scene was key in garnering interest from major record labels.   The band eventually left Lookout! Records to sign with Reprise Records after catching the eye of rock heavy-weight Rob Cavallo. Under Reprise, the trio released their breakthrough album Dookie in February of 1994.  Recorded in just three weeks, Dookie  became a huge commercial success, largely in part to the exposure garnered by the videos for “Longview”, “Basketcase” and “When I Come Around”, which had heavy airplay on MTV.  Behind the might of five hit singles, including a remake of Kerplunk’s “Welcome to Paradise” and the radio only single “She”, Dookie became one of the most successful albums in rock.  As of 2010, Dookie has sold more than 16 million copies worldwide, earning a Diamond rating in the United States.  The album won the Grammy for Best Alternative Rock Album and was ranked at number 193 for The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. During the intervening years, Green Day continued to release successful albums, including Insomniac (1994), Nimrod (1997) and Warning (2000)....

Enchanted Sea Horse Belly Rings...

The Sea Horse is one of the most powerful legendary icons in the world. The ancient Greeks believed that the Sea Horse was the reflection of Poseidon and Neptune being the creature that this god was most fond of. To the Greeks the Seahorse is a sign of power and strength of the gods and of the ocean and seas. In many sculptures and pictures Poseidon/Neptune are riding seahorses with their tridents in hand ready to show their strength of the gods. In ancient European cultures they believe the Seahorses are a supernatural being who carries the souls of lost or dead sailors across the ocean to their next life or loved ones for one last embrace. The Ancient Europeans also believed the seahorse also represents safe passage and protection while sailing the seas. In Asian cultures they believe that the Seahorse is more of a sea Dragon. Any Dragon is considered good luck and so the Sea Horse brings you good luck when it comes to any body of water. With all of these different legends it would be of great value for a woman to have a Seahorse by her side or in this case very close to her belly button. A Sea Horse belly button piercing on a woman will show her as someone who is strong, and powerful. For most men this professes a sexiness that drives men crazy, the reason being men are usually always in power when it comes to sports, business, and even knowledge so when a woman exhibits these types of attributes her attractiveness grows. These Seahorse Belly Rings comes with little crystals and are made of metal. You can find them on Body Jewelry and More...
