Rolling Stones Feat. Lady Gaga and Stevie Wonder “Sweet Sounds of Heaven”

I have been waiting on this drop for weeks since I heard it was going to happen.

The Rolling Stones have teamed up with Lady Gaga and Stevie Wonder for a song called “Sweet Sounds of Heaven” and it’ll take you to church whether you’re a believer or not!

Duddddeee… I was NOT expecting that. But I like it. A lot.

Mick sounds great, as does Gaga (always!) and Stevie tickling the ivories… definitely adding this one to the playlist!

Of course, “Sweet Sounds of Heaven” is off their upcoming album “Hackney Diamonds” out October 20th.

I don’t know about you, but I’m excited for more.

Rolling Stones for Life!

Axl Rose and Carrie Underwood Rocking Out!

I’m really envious of Carrie Underwood.

Not just those pipes and those legs, but getting to perform with Axl Rose (One of my Rock Idols) several times recently? I mean, DAMN, girl.


I love that Carrie has this side of her. I always wrote her off as a prissy girly-girl, but damn can she rock.  Turns out she’s a big fan of Classic Rock and metal, and she can certainly deliver the goods.

It’s really cool to see the “other” side of Carrie.  This combined with her love of fitness and red wine, well, hot damn, maybe we can be friends after all!  She’s been gaining some serious cool points with me lately.


Oooohhhh… maybe a Rock album is in her future?

I would support the fire out of that.

I’m a big Journey fan, and being so, I must disagree.

Where’s “Separate Ways”? Or “Lights”? “Wheel in the Sky”?  “Lovin, Touchin’, Squeezin'”?  Or their biggest seller “Open Arms”?

Billboard, put down the crack pipe and add those babies in!


Here’s my Top Ten:

10: “Feeling That Way”

9:  “Wheel in the Sky”

8: “Open Arms”

7: “Lovin’, Touchin’ Squeezin'”

6: “Anyway You Want It”

5: “Lights”

4: “Separate Ways”

3: “Stone in Love”

2: “Don’t Stop Believing”

1: “Faithfully”

Of course, these are just my personal choices, as I’m sure the Billboard article is based on the same thing.
