I am Karly Rhodes and I’ve been with ZROCK from the beginning! I grew up in Rochester. I’ve always been a bit of a music addict, you do not want to know how many CD’s, and even cassette tapes and records I own! It has been really awesome to see some great shows in town here and meet many of you! Sevendust, Korn, Distrubed, Rob Zombie, Alice Cooper, Fuel, Devour the Day, Papa Roach, Nonpoint , Skillet, Oh I could go on. I grew up pretending to be just like the people I heard listening to the radio, and always wanted to be a part of it all. I have been in radio for my entire adult life, but nothing compares to ZROCK for me. I also enjoy other things like photography, and traveling. I have been to almost all 50 states, not Alaska, Hawaii or Puerto Rico, but almost everywhere!
Lars Is Designing A Bottle And Rolling A Drum Down The Sidewalk
Is it just me or does Lars Ulrich look like a cross between Jim Carrey & Jack Nicholson in this picture? I have no idea what Lars is saying here, but it sure is fun to watch. A Danish brewery asked Lars Ulrich to design a bottle for them for their 'Stand Out' collection. He was one of six people chosen to do this. The video is him talking about this whole endeavor, it's in Danish, however.
Automatic Car Washes…A Thing Of The Future…Maybe
I used to just love washing my car! When it was new of course. Then, the joy of it wears off, because, it's your old car and you are busy. A new type of car is being tested out that makes it so that you dont have to wash it. EVER! For real? Apparently!
The World Has Gotten Smaller… And It Makes Me Want To Scream!
Ok, well I almost screamed. I know I wanted to, instead, my buddies and I all just laughed. We still laugh to this day actually. I took a trip to California one year to meet up with some friends of mine who live in Nevada, but we met up at Disneyland. We went on this ride:
Which Band Would You Love to See in Rochester? Here’s My Pick…
Concert bucket lists. I have a concert bucket list, with all the bands that I would love to see. I'd love to see Pop Evil again, and I really like Devour the Day. Static X is on the list, and they're actually coming here soon.
YES! New Kix Is Comin
New Kix July 22nd! 'Blow My Fuse' is one great album if I do say so myself. And I do say so. They haven't released an album for 19 years but this one will be most of the original line-up minus Mark Schenker on bass.

Good Times / Better Sound(s) ?
Led Zeppelin plans on issuing some music from their past in early June with bonus material included. Jimmy Page, who by the way, is going to be receiving an honorary doctorate degree of music from Berklee on May 10th, has been pretty vocal about all of the material that they plan on releasing for a couple of years. This is a preview they just released of the 1969 'I' album reissue:
Shhh…. Don’t Tell Jeff….
Well, here is an interesting vacation idea!
Rock ‘n’ Roll Records All Night… & Party Every Day…
Who said records are dead? Not me, surely. I know, I know, they are ancient. I however love them, I actually own a huge pile OF them, including a couple of precious NIN ones, & a nice pile of my favorite 45's. Just this past weekend there was even a record collector event in Rochester. Yes, they take up a bit more space than a smartphone or an mp3 player,
Flea Is Writing
Flea has a story, as well as some super animated moves. His story will soon be on bookshelves and in Kindles / Ipad's and tablets, that is how people are reading things these days right? It sounds like they plan on making it available in audio form too, for those who would prefer NOT to read it.
