After a very successful 2008, Rock on the Range heads back to Columbus Crew Stadium for its third year as the two day event rolls in 2009. After a awesome Saturday lineup last year, and a little too much filler on Sunday- ROTR promises to be mostly killer, and not much filler this year as the festival adds a third stage this year as well too. Even with the economy, some hard rock and metal fans in Michigan will be making their way down to Columbus for this year’s festival.
Q: Your band has had its songs on the TV show “True Blood,” the NHL 11 video game, the “Saw 7″ movie soundtrack and commercials for Ford & Budweiser. If you had one of those to pick as the most beneficial, which would it be and why?
The place is Tokyo. The year is 1984. The event is Super Rock festival. Amidst the Scorpions, Whitesnake and Bon Jovi, Anvil takes the stage, dubbed the heaviest band of their time by Anthrax, Slayer and Metallica. Led by Steve “Lips” Kudlow and Robb Reiner, Anvil would define the sound of heavy metal in the early 1980s and receive none of the profit, or as Slash of Guns N’ Roses put best, “Everybody ripped them off and left them for dead.” More than 20 years later, the childhood buddies are still trying to make it big.

Bogota is a city that is proud, and the churches and museums are testaments to that fact. And Bogota has a fun side to show you, too. There is festival street dancing, and carnivals to attract your attention. You can also walk through the wonderful botanical garden. The Virgilio Barco library will let you read more about the city’s history, and the younger people can have a blast at the El Tunal Park, where the https://ticketsride.com/rock-on-the-range/ Festival showcases Latin talents.
RW: I could remember it well. Gary and I grew up in the same town in Northern Ireland, and his family’s home was probably no more than 2 miles away from mine. We were in Vienna (Austria) at the time and Scott came down to the lobby, just looking really upset. Once the news was given to us, we were just so shocked. He was only 58 and from what I understand, he was in really good health. It just came as a complete shock to us and he died far too soon.
