Ronnie James Dio passed away one year ago today.

If you look closely at the picture of the 1986 issue of 'Hit Parader' above, you'll notice there is also an article in there about everyone's favorite gun advocate Ted Nugent.... who was spotted hanging outside Public Assembly Saturday night (he did not go in and watch any of Coliseum), and who is strangely the special guest at Les Paul night at the Iridium tonight.

J-Roddy Walston & The Business and These United States continue a residency at Brooklyn Bowl tonight.

The Great Escape festival in Brighton is now over. We'll have a bit of coverage coming soon, but in the meantime you can find the photos Tim has uploaded so far, at the BrooklynVegan Facebook page.

What else?

I used to think Ted Nugent was cool. I now think he is one of the most vile humans on the planet.

I think Nugent's long lost son owns Public Assembly.

The Nuge thinks our President is a socialist. Anyone who thinks that has something wrong with them (like extreme stupidity) or ulterior motives.

i once heard him say he doesn't like to tour europe because "there are too many foreigners over there"...
found it weird, always thought europe was populated by people from ohio.

Does Union Hall give out set times if you call them? They are not open yet, so I have yet to try.

Great show there tonight, but I do not want to shill.

Haha Obama wishes he was a socialist——he's pure fascist, just like the rest of the government pigs.

Obama brings a hummus platter along to assist his mid-east peace talks.

Seriously? It took 15 comments to get to Ronnie James Dio and that was the only comment?

Guess I shouldn't be surprised by the lot of you.
