Hey there my friends, I’m here for a quick moment to share with you the winners of the 50th Annual American Music Awards for the “Rock” categories. There are three in total so this will be a quick read. The broadcast still has over an hour to go and I’ll be posting the full rundown over on “The Chronicles” for those interested in seeing it. Truth be told I am not the biggest fan of this awards show since it seems a bit all over the place and leaves a lot of the music that I like out of the process. I’ll return at the close with some additional opinion
The Grammy Awards nominations were revealed earlier today and while this is an extremely lengthy list we are only going to laud the noms for the Rock, Metal and Alternative categories here on the website. A full rundown will be on “The Chronicles of Piercing Ken” website after some considerable editing. When we look at this in Word its more than thirty pages but I digress, here now are the nominations of the categories we focus on at the PiercingMetal Media Command HQ.
Motley Crue fans across the land have been eagerly awaiting the release of “The Dirt” film which is of course based on the book of the same name. The trailer dropped a couple of weeks ago and we shared it HERE in case you missed it. Now, depending on your geographic location, “The Dirt” is available for immediate streaming and rewatching to your hearts content. Let’s check out the Official Poster, premise and casting along with some editorial notes.
