Brandon Flowers - Flamingo - pre-order

You still have time to get your pre-order in for Brandon Flowers' debut solo album, Flamingo, before it is released early next month.

Brandon & Co. are offering up some special packaging to eager audiophiles and those with a little cash to roll the dice on. It's not much of a gamble, because from what we've heard so far, Flamingo is a sure-thing.

The least expensive U.S. pre-order package is available for $24.99 and includes a Deluxe version of Flamingo and pretty sweet 10" picture disc 33.3 LP of "Crossfire." The "super deluxe bundle" tops out at $124.99 before s&h and includes the full length, deluxe edition Flamingo LP, "Crossfire" 10" Picture Disc, a hand signed Limited Edition Las Vegas Lithograph (but they don't say whose hand signed it Sweet! The store now says it's signed by 'Brandon.' Hopefully it's not a staffer by the same name. Ha!), a Brandon Flowers Diamond t-shirt, and an instant gratification MP3 download of the lead single, "Crossfire" which most of you should already have. A lighter full selection is (also) available for folks in the other areas of our fine globe.

You can grab your own bag of goodies at the BFWS

Click past the break to see the full Flamingo track list and for the official "Crossfire" video which includes special guest appearances from a certain bunch of ninjas and none-other-than Charlize Theron.

Robert Sweet Drums Pearl

Certainly one of the most visible drummers of the 80's and not the type to slow down, Robert Sweet has been going "Full Steam Ahead" since he first hit the scene back in '82. The picture above played a massive role in influencing me to play drums, as I am sure it had for hundreds of others.

Probably best known for his role as the "Visual Timekeeper" for Stryper, Robert has played in several bands, including a Rod Stewart tribute band. However, no one can ever mistake his outlandish kits for another drummer or his heart for anything other than belonging to God.

Stryper - By His Strypes

After a good, long, ten-month wait, copies of the limited edition Stryper picture book, By His Strypes, are shipping to anxious fans.

We can tell you, without-a-doubt, By His Strypes is by far the nicest picture book put out in honor of any band. Commemorating Stryper's pioneering work and in celebration of their 25th anniversary, By His Strypes is a must-have for any Stryper fan. By His Strypes is a 200 page treasure of ultra-rare photos, interesting captions, and an album-by-album history of the band that forever changed the landscape of Christian music.

R&R Drum Solo Friday - Ryuga Uchida


Was it Marty McFly that said the best stuff is made in Japan? Sadly that's not been the case for some time, but Ryuga Uchida just might give Japan the resurgence of inspiration it needs to pull out of the funk it's in.

Ryuga is only 9 years old and has already been captured playing some difficult drumming routines. Some people might say: "Man, if this guy is already playing this good, what hope do I have? I might as well quit. Ryuga's got it covered." But if this little guy can't encourage you to take your love for drumming off the shelf, then nothing can.
