Kim Monroe’s Music Minute April 5th

Over the weekend, Def Leppard celebrated the 25th anniversary of “Adrenalize” with a special video montage featuring clips from all 10 songs on the album.  “Adrenalize” was kind of benchmark for the band as it was the follow up to the hugely success “Hysteria” album and the first one to follow the tragic death of original guitarist Steve Clark.  Def Leppard return to the Pacific Northwest with Poison and Tesla at White River Ampitheater in June.

The Late Show’s Stephen Colbert is a huge Green Day fan, and was thrilled to have the band on recently.  But what happened backstage was even better!  Colbert kicked off a new segment called “Lyrics We Can Afford to Songs We Love.”  The deal is, Colbert can sing the lyrics of a song in the public domain to the tune of a popular song, so Billie Joe Armstrong and the boys played “Good Riddance” as Colbert sang the lyrics to “Camptown Races.”

If you are planning your summer vacation and a trip to the Bay Area sounds appealing, you might want to plan to go around August 11th and 13th.  Outside Lands is celebrating it’s 10th anniversary and Metallica has been confirmed as one of the event’s headliners.  Other artists confirmed are classic rock icons The Who, a rare appearance by Gorrillaz and Queens of the Stone Age.
