I'm Ready, 2017!

Personally, I thought 2016 was great! If for no other reason than GNR reuniting! I saw tons of kick-ass shows including Disturbed, Slipknot and more. This year will bring us Metallica, Red Hot Chili Peppers, maybe Kid Rock and that's just the start. My Radio Chatter podcast took off in 2016. I made a pledge to do 1 every week, and I did it....until Sebastian Bach stiffed me in early December, twice! I'll give you the same this year as I already have some interviews lined up and some already done! I have a couple big names on my list that I'm going to pursue again this year. I live by the motto that it's only impossible until its been done.

People talked about all the celebrities that we lost in '16. While tragic, I think of the heroes that are no longer with us. From officer Kenneth Steil to Myron Jarrett to Collin Rose, and several others. Regular people who now have to go on with life without a father, brother or husband all while trying to make ends meet. Hopefully 2017 will be better for those who protect and serve.

This year started with a whimper from the Lions and Red Wings. I hope they rebound and start to improve. God knows this sports town needs it. Speaking of the Wings, 2017 will bring the new arena. The Pistons will move downtown as well.

Make this year your bitch! Go out and take what's yours.
