Bon Jovi concert review 11.12.11

So on December the 11th 2011 I went to the Bon Jovi concert at Ethiad Stadium in Melbourne. Let me tell you as one of their song is called 'We Got It Going On' there is so much truth in the song as they really do still 'have it going on'! While I didn't see the pre band (I was in the merch line) I heard from others that they were terrible. But lets face it nobody comes to see the pre band its the main course that you really want. In this case the main course was Jon Bon Jovi ;) They opened…

it's funny

Hello everyone, and thanks for checking out my band here on Hair Metal Mansion. Thanks to my good friends Mary and Nelia for getting the ball rolling on here. Without people such as them, I'd be even more obscure than I already am.


When Mary sent me the link to this site, I admit I was taken aback and then got a laugh out of it. Anyone who knows me will know that I am not big into hair metal. Some songs here and there put a smile on my jaded face, but for the most part, I…

My night started early on April 8th. My husband…

The new Within Temptation CD is a must have!

I finally got my hands on their new CD "The Unforgiving" and it was worth the wait!! I have been hooked on their music for the last few years and have almost worn out the "Black Symphony" disc! Sharon's voice is still angelic in some areas, but to match the comic that goes with the album, she gives each song its true meaning with growls of anger! The first comic is available on their website, and one will follow every two months. The song "Murder" is one WT fans would not expect, but it is…
