Being An Advocate For Hearing Loss - Mark Holmes (Platinum Blonde)
In the years after Chris Steffler left the band due to having severe tinnitus, Mark became an advocate for those who like Chris suffer through hearing loss and don't take care of it.
Chris had suffered a lot because he hadn't taken care to make sure that his hearing didn't suffer further due to the loud sounds that he encountered due to his drums and his fans screaming.

Being The Only Left Handed Drummer - Dan Todd (Platinum Blonde)
Dan is a unique kind of drummer. Not only does he sing with Mark and Sergio but he's also left-handed. So anytime a stage crew sets up his drums he has to supervise them so they don't set his drums up for a right-handed drummer.

Celebrating a Solar Eclipse - Ozzy Osbourne
In Cartersville, Illinois there was the Moonstock heavy metal festival. This region was in the path of totality for the solar eclipse of August 21, 2017. Moments before the moon started to eclipse the sun Ozzy got on stage and he and his band kicked off his hit 'Bark At the Moon'. During that song the sun got totally eclipsed by the moon and the daytime turned into 'night'. By the time the song ended the sun 'reappeared' and daylight returned. This was all preplanned ahead of eclipse totality time. A landmark of heavy metal history, rock'n'roll history, astronomy history, Ozzy's checkered life and more. I wish I was there but where I was the sun was 90% eclipsed and I ain't complaining on that.

protest against Myanmar - Bob Geldof
right now Myanmar is waging a genocidal war against the Rohingya people in the western territories. Many civilians are being raped, murdered, forced from their homes to flee from a major ethnic cleansing operation. Aung San Suu Kyi, once a prisoner of Myanmar's totalitarian government and later de facto head, has denied that anything is wrong and there that there is no genocide occurring. She and Bob Geldof were awarded the Freedom Award of the City of Dublin. Suu Kyi has done nothing to stop the ethnic cleansing or even acknowledge it. In protest Bob Geldof went to a municipal court in Dublin and gave back his award document as a protest because "she's a murderer" and he wanted no association with "somebody like that".

Sheer Ego - Kid Rock
Kid Rock was the opener at this Rolling Stones show I attended in 2015. The souvenir booths had items from both Kid Rock and of course, the Stones. Kid Rock's souvenirs were just clothing items. There were hats simply saying "American Badass". OK, you say - no big deal. There were T-shirts with Rock's face on the front. Both the T-shirt and a jacket had this phrase from one of this song titles on the back: YOU'VE NEVER MET ANOTHER MOTHER FUCKER LIKE ME. Can you imagine the jokes that could draw from other people? LOL. OK, Kid. You said it, not me. If you say you're a motherfucker, then a motherfucker is what you are! YOU said that, not me!

Not Backing Down - Tom Petty
In 1989 Tom Petty explained in a radio interview why, like many other artists like Bruce Springsteen and bands like REM refused to let their hits be used for commercials to promote products. Tom said,"Well, I'd feel like some kind of honkey if I did it. It just wouldn't feel right. To me that's selling out." Well, he NEVER BACKED DOWN from his stance on this issue. RIP TOM PETTY

MTV Censorship - Tom Petty
In the video for You Don't Know How It Feels Tom sings "let's get to the point. Let's roll another joint" but the word is reversed in the video to say "let's get to the point. Let's roll another tnoij" to avoid MTV's young crowd being exposed to words like.
At the 1994 MTV Music Video Awards when Tom won Best Male Video he joked that he didn't know what the last word in the verse of his song was?
