RUSH to Judgement

posted by Chris Epting

My son and I saw RUSH last week – and the show was incredible. As a 48-year old who grew up listening to the band get maligned by friends, associates and mostly critics, it remains stunning to me that this […]

I’ve written recently about the band from here in Huntington Beach beach, Avenged Sevenfold, and their dedicated, passionate fans. This week the group achieved an impressive milestone – bumping Eminem out of the number one slot on the Billboard album […]
