But they didn't last and they died as they tried” – Judas Priest, “Hell Bent For Leather”.



Last night I attended the long awaited “Metal Masters Tour” show at Journal Pavilion in the desert wasteland ( why doesn't anyone ever get lost in a… Continue

Weekend Around ABQ Part II





Well I made it out and about in ABQ for a 3rd afternoon in a row! Woohoo! And this was close to home. There was a lot of arguing in the news and various websites about closing Central and alleged bus service disruptions, etc. etc. But you know what? This was fun, it was a quiet Sunday afternoon in Nob Hill, hence minimal disruption, and I get tired of hearing people whine. The Shop and Stroll was… Continue

What's in a Name? Martini Mike's Hangover Report! for Saturday 080908

Hmmm… it boggles my pounding head. I was recently interviewed by www.VegasHappyHours.com, while in my home away from home, for the launch of their new site. Then suddenly I find myself being contacted by Lexi at Albuquerque The… Continue

"Wednesday Night in Albuquerque" or "The State of Metal"... Martini Mike's Hangover Report



As I continue my recent and strange walk down musical memory lane I am again confronted with 80’s Metal guys. Wednesday night brought me to a place I had not gone in a while… the local metal show for the local metal non-crowd. A friend from high school talked me into it. Another old friend from… Continue
