I'm sorry Alter Bridge fans and what I am looking forward to.

I would like to say sorry to all of the Alter Bridge fans who are upset like myself about the live DVD being delayed again. I'm upset like all fans of Alter Bridge right now since another Tuesday has passed and no DVD. Shortly after writing my first blog I realized it was time for Alter Bridge's Live DVD filmed in Amsterdam to be released. I have the copy that was made available in the fall of 2009 on Amazon, but it isn't the copy with the Documentary and CD of the show that is supposed to come out later in stores. This item has been put off 6 times. Just recently in the past two months twice. On February 23, 2010 it was supposed to come out a year after the original scheduled release date. Then on March 23 it was supposed to come out for sure. Records labels are not fun...lets face it. I mean it happens. Since 2006, my sophomore year. I have read about bands that were working on releasing albums but the label put them off and eventually selfing the whole idea completely. It makes me upset. Cause I build up so much anticipation on something by a group of individuals that make me happy from the sounds they create. I know it is crazy, but certain sounds please my ear. I don't enjoy rap for a reason. Alter Bridge's DVD will hopefully bee released someday soon. They have made and printed physical copies of it already.

Next week Rob Thomas' iTunes EP for the hit single Someday is released. So that sounds exciting. More albums that are coming out in 2010/2011 is Eye Empire, Dixie Duncan's Solo CD, Sevendust's Cold Day Memories (April 20th), Myles Kennedy's Solo, Slash's Slash & Friends (Sometime in April), Patrick Stump's Solo CD, Seether, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Alter Bridge's Third Ablum, Finger Eleven, Evanescence, Stone Sour, Kings of Leon, Brandon Saller of Atreyu's Solo CD, Matchbox Twenty, Switchfoot, Cage the Elephant, Foo Fighters, Hemme, 12 Stones, Alien Ant Farm, The Limousines, Third Eye Blind, Blink-182, Incubus, Linkin Park, Brett Scallion's Solo CD, Sypher, P.O.D., Shinedown, Fiction Family, Scott Stapp Solo CD #2, and finally Creed Live Deluxe DVD.

I'm also planning on purchasing Cop Out as well as The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus both on DVD and that will be the end of movies for awhile except for rentals as well as Nolan's Batman Series and Hellboy Series by Del Toro and other series of movies I enjoy. Anyway that is my plan. I can't forget Runaways. Some of my favorite illustrations in a long time. Then Chuck, Supernatural, and House keep me glued to the Television.

I also plan on seeing Creed, Scott Stapp, Alter Bridge play, which makes them my favorite band of all-time. I want to see Eye Empire play real badly again. There are other bands I want and would like to see, but I need to make a budget. I plan on seeing 12 Stones again and again. I will go see bands my bandmates would like to see.

Speaking of my band I hope The Art of One continues to grow. As a person I realize that I need to create stuff. If I work in a big firm it would be graphically. A Graphic Design job. I would prefer to create music with my friend Dave and make new friends with him to complete our band The Art of One. I would prefer many avenues of art. I enjoy listening to music and thats why I have a this blog.

Hello...I'm back. I brought Fuel for the fire.

I joined blogger, but left. Why am I back? Answer to keep my word with KB's Muzak Corner which will now be called Kyle's Muzak Corner. I have never really gone under the name KB around people except for Random Ninja Attack. I will continue to do so for the show, but not for Muzak Corner. Also The Art of One is going strong. We have four ideas going. I have a song idea that I need to show Dave next time during practice. I kinda of want to work on the lyrics before I show him those. Also musically I'm working on a theme song for Random Ninja Attack. I recorded drums for it during spring break. Which may have been my last spring break folks. The drums I recorded are rough but close to what I was thinking.

As far Muzak Corner, I want to write a weekly blog about music I have been listening to and music I think you as music fans should go check out immediately. Right now for the past couple of days I have been listening to Fuel. They recently been having problems ever since their 2003 release of Natural Selection. Kevin Miller, the drummer left in 2005. His shoes would be filled by Tommy Stewart (ex-Godsmack drummer, Lo-Pro drummer). Brett Scallions would leave shortly after Kevin in 2006. Brett would go on to play bass for The X's and then Circus Diablo. Then would go on to front Riders on the Storm. A band started by Ray Manzarek and Robby Krieger of The Doors with Ty Dennis on drums and Phil Chen on bass. Then in late 2009, Brett Scallions rejoined Jeff Abercrombie from Fuel to form Re-Fueled. Brett and Jeff basically wanted to play classic Fuel songs together again. For Fuel in 2006 they would go on to search for a new singer. Carl Bell and Jeff found Toryn Green. They released a album in 2007 called Angels & Devils. So it has been a struggle for Fuel these past 7 years.

In 2010, Brett announced that Jeff wanted to stay home and not tour anymore. So for Re-Fueled, Brett recruited Brad Stewart (ex-Shinedown bassist) on bass. Also in the band Re-Fueled are Yogi (ex-Buckcherry guitarist) and Ken Schalk on drums. Just 10 days ago Brett announced that this new band would be going on a World Tour going under the name Fuel. Brett said Carl had the chance so why not him. Brett has also been working on a solo album. So I hope that comes out one day. I like the new lineup for Re-Fueled. Also I have supported Kevin, Carl, Jeff, and Brett every since they had gone their separate ways. I hope Carl and Brett make up. Carl should continue Fuel with Brett again. Bring Yogi, Ken, and Brad to Fuel and continue to make great music. Yes Fuel would have three guitarist since Brett plays every once in awhile, but Virgos Merlot had three guitarist. Why not Fuel? I don't know what will happen with Fuel, but I hope that Brett and Carl will continue to make music. I know Brett has made some music because just recently he release a track called "Something to Believe" with the group Hollow and Ken Wallace.

Away from Fuel. I have been listening to lots of music recently. Some bands I recommend to yall are the following The Limousines, Shaman's Harvest, and the latest Kiss album. On my last video segment entitled KB's Muzak Corner. I mention two releases I would talk about one being Kiss's Sonic Boom. The band has some new members. It reminds me of this Fuel situation except without some drama. It is cool though. Kiss recorded some new songs along with re-doing some of their classic hits which really interested me. It came out in October of last year. Another album the came out last year was Shaman's Harvest's Shine. It is the fourth album by the band and contains the hit song "Dragonfly". Which has been doing well on the Rock Alternative Charts. I was introduced to them by my cousin. The last album I recommend you music listeners to go check out is The Limousines' Scrapbook - EP. It came out around November/December of last year. I have know about this band since Eric Victorino had left the band Strata in 2008. The Limousines are an Electro-Pop band that have songs that simple song meanings that are straight to the point. They had a single called "Very Busy People" come out before hand that was only released digitally that will explain what I mean. Plus it is an interesting song. I recommend this albums since they may be something different that you need right now in your life.
