We don’t know exactly what it will sound like but Eagles co founder Bernie Leadon will join Don Henley, Joe Walsh, and Tim Schmit during a tribute to Glenn Frey at the Grammy awards on February 15th.

There are rumors that the tribute will include a performance of Take it Easy… a song which Brown co-wrote with Glenn Frey.

Disturbed are set to perform at the EnCana Events Centre on February 19th (next Friday) along with Saint Asonia and Age of Days. We had some extra tickets (still some left to buy here) and we decided to give away pairs all week.

The contest is a ROCK 97.7 favourite, 5in10. We give you a subject, and you name 5 things pertaining to that subject in 10 seconds, you win. It’s that simple. We have tried to up the difficulty with questions like name 5 types of tea… which isn’t the most metal sounding question, but a fan nailed it and is thrilled to be going to see Disturbed.

Listen live for your chance to play 5in10, it could mean quite a show for you on Friday Feb 19th.

Great clip

Posted on by Cliff Kriz

Normally…. we wouldn’t promote this too much. It’s rare that Elton John gets some talk on the show… but as far as global musical fame, well you can’t deny him.

This… pretty funny. Much better than Adele.

If you like your music a little harder, then listen later this morning for your chance to win tickets to see Disturbed with Saint Asonia at EnCana Events Centre February 19th! Kevin and myself have tickets to giveaway all week long.
