The Apple IPhone is a pretty amazing piece of technology. Who would have thought it would be possible to watch your favorite hard rock videos on youtube right in the palm of your hand. Very Cool Stuff Indeed!
Some ingenious fellow thought it was cool, he wanted to see what other functions it might have……

At 3 P.M. Thursday, July 12, The First Annual Rocklahoma Music Festival Begins! The Thursday shows were added as an added bonus for those individuals that purchased the three day ticket (Friday through Sunday).
Lillian Axe was a last minute replacement for Tigertailz, who were unable to travel due to Pepsi Tate’s ongoing cancer treatments.
I am disappointed that I could not attend, as it has been years since I have been able to see Lillian Axe play live. Lucky for me, I have a handy copy of the Lillian Axe release, Live 2002. It may not be as good as being there live, but I get more songs this way. 21 to be exact, for over 90 minutes of music.
This live collection has just about all of the Lillian Axe tunes you can use prior to their new, Waters Rising disc. Live 2002 captures Lillian Axe in fine form! The band lineup on this disc is Steve Blaze on Lead Guitar & Vocals, Ron Taylor on Vocals, Darrin DeLatte on Bass Guitar, Sam Poitevent on Guitar and Vocals, and Ken Koudelka on Drums.
The sound on this disc is very good for being a live collection. It isn’t studio quality, but it is damn close. If you are fan of this band, you need to check this out.
You can pick up Live 2002 very reasonably at Amazon.com. It is a must own for Lillian Axe and 80’s hard rock fans.

Exactly one year ago Tuesday, Rikki wandered into The Stage and saw singer-songwriter Melanie Martel singing. Another guy on the stage invited him up to play drums.
First, he fell in love with Martel’s voice during the Doobie Brothers song “China Grove” to be exact. After the set was over, he asked to buy her a drink.
Rockett said, “I said, ‘Can buy you a drink?’ and she says, ‘You can do whatever you want’,” and he wasn’t embellishing.
…”He said, ‘Can I buy you a drink?’ and I said, ‘You can do whatever you want’,” said Martel.
Rockett invited her to the Poison show at Starwood the next night and since then, the two have been inseparable.
Rockett proposed to her at The Stage Monday night.
