New Vision for Downtown GP

Posted on by Cliff Kriz

GP downtown 2 HR

There’s no doubt about it, Grande Prairie could use a face lift for downtown. Well, that’s exactly what’s going to happen between 2016 and 2020 (construction) where $20 million dollars has been budgeted to make things a little more awesome.

You can see what the ‘vision’ for downtown plans tonight with a presentation, including a movie, from 4-9pm at the Showcase Center (old Catholic Church building) on 102nd ave.

You can also check out this site ourdowntown.ca for some more insight.

The Prince of Darkness facts

Posted on by Cliff Kriz

You may think you know Ozzy, but it seems like there’s a million stories out there. Some might be true, others likely folklore passed on from metal fan to metal fan. Hey, there was a time before the internet brought all truth together.

Did you know Ozzy tattooed himself while in jail? That one is true. It’s also true that the cough you hear on Sweet Leaf isn’t Osbourne’s, it’s actually Iommi, who wrote a lot of Sabbath’s songs with Geezer Butler.

You’ve heard of Zakk Wylde, but did you know it was actually Howard Stern that gets credit for bringing him and Ozzy together. Oz was looking for a guitarist, taking the search on the Stern show, which Wylde listened to a lot.

Farewell to the King of Blues

Posted on by Cliff Kriz

rocklogo_smaller

We will never have a name more synonymous with blues than B-B King. Sadly he passed away at his home last night. King was 89, and suffered from health issues the last few years.

We will remember him for performing into his 80′s and being a HUGE influence on guys like Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton (when you influence two of the world’s greatest guitar players, you know you’ve done it right)

As well as being known world wide, BB King won 15 Grammys, is in the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame and has a Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Plus apparently King has 50 grandchildren.

Another music rip-off?

Posted on by Cliff Kriz

rocklogo_smaller

You’re going to have to be the judge of this one, to me it sounds REALLY similar, but I’ve never been good at telling who is ripping off who, and what just sounds like another song (which can happen)

It’s recently come up that Guns N Roses “Sweet Child O Mine” and a song called “Unpublished Critics” by an Australian band Australian Crawl sound VERY similar.

It turns out that Unpublished Critics was released 6 years earlier than the GnR classic which came out in 1981, and catapulted Guns N Roses to stardom.

James Reyne, a member of AUSTRALIAN CRAWL, says that he has no intentions of taking GUNS N’ ROSES to court over the matter.

“It is not inconceivable that there are similarities between the two songs.” “It’s also not inconceivable that when they came out they were quite open in interviews that they liked a lot of Australian bands. It’s also not inconceivable that they wouldn’t have been aware of certain Australian songs. “
