Davey D Releases Classic Rock Inspired MercynSin

first_imgAdvertisement Long before the recent 30 Days, 30 Songs project in which major music stars are contributing songs about Donald Trump for an online playlist, Davey released “TRUMP!” The album has an inspiring theme with songs like “Otherside” and “Stick To Your Guns.” “My parents were Italian immigrants and were afraid to take risks so my dreams of becoming a rock singer was not an option early on,” Davey says. “Otherside” is about being told that you can’t, that those dreams are for other people, not us. I listened at first and followed a more traditional path, however, now I’m going for it which, brings us to “Stick to Your Guns” as people will challenge you if you go against the grain.”Davey wasn’t the only one in the family to take that risk as his cousin Johnny Dee (De Giuli) co-founded Honeymoon Suite in 1981and the band continues to record and tour in 2016.“Trump” https://youtu.be/VcS7XvDj16EWebsite: http://www.daveydrocks.com/listen-buy-musicTwitter: @DaveyDRocksFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/daveydrocks/ Login/Register With: Facebook Advertisement Advertisement When Canadian rocker Davey D (David De Giuli) decided to give up the corporate world to become a rock singer he didn’t just want to sing, he wanted to be able to sing like his rock legend heroes Robert Plant, Steven Tyler, Brian Johnson and Axl Rose. He dedicated countless hours to studying and practicing so that he could reach those high notes and maintain that power on stage. It is no surprise then that his latest album Mercy ‘n’ Sin features a collection of originals inspired by classic rock anthems.The album was produced by multi-instrumentalist jazz musician and songwriter Mark Zubek, who has worked with Grammy winning jazz singer Betty Carter, Jack DeJohnette, Mark Turner, Tony Levin and has performed with Wynton Marsalis. “Having a huge jazz background is something that came later in life, my first love was rock radio,” says Zubek. “Davey’s music brought me back to my youth and gave me a chance to unleash the “inner rebel” who hasn’t seen the light of day in awhile! I think that’s what made us a perfect fit. I could take all of Davey’s song ideas and help finish them and bring them to light, especially because I grew up playing all those rock instruments.” LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Twitterlast_img read more

Suspended Josh Gordons Behavior Impacts More Than Just Him

In general, NFL receivers are known as “divas,” high-maintenance players who need the ball and attention—and are quick to let it be known.Josh Gordon of the Cleveland Browns is more that a “diva.” He’s a diva with issues, and that’s why he finds himself suspended and seeking to become a free agent, although his contract with the team is not up until 2016.For a player who has been suspended by the league for substance abuse violations and DUI arrests but is still in the league, it would stand to reason that he would be the poster child for showing up on time or anything else that depicts he appreciates his status in the league.And yet yesterday, Gordon missed a team meeting the day before the final game of the season. The Browns, who covet his immense talents, are frustrated by the uncertainty Gordon brings, and put him on the reserve/suspended list.This is significant because Gordon’s behavior impacts others who come behind him, young receivers with a controversial past that teams might back away from with Gordon in mind. Is that young player worth the potential trouble?That’s how it is—in the NFL and in business: The Black employee before you sets the standards, creates the opportunities or blows the opportunities for the Blacks that come behind you. It goes without saying that white employees don’t carry the same burden. Someone like former Miami Dolphins offensive lineman Richie Incognito gets in trouble for being a bullying a teammate, but his misdeeds have no burden on others who come behind him because his actions are not a barometer for young white offensive lineman. That’s just how it is.Gordon, meanwhile, is on a self-destructive, selfish path, unable to see beyond his needs and into a bigger picture of leading.Dez Bryant of the Dallas Cowboys came off originally as a “diva” who would be an issue for the team. He had legal issues and was bashed for acting out on the sideline when he did not get the ball. Bryant righted himself, however. He has had no troubles off the field and has been among the best, most lethal receivers in the NFL.Bryant’s success is being offset by Gordon’s mess. The Brown receiver is talented as all get out: He led the league in receiving last year. He’s big and fast and has sure hands. But he is unsure of his future.Gordon, who has missed 12 games due to suspensions in the last two years, was set to become an unrestricted free agent after the 2015 season but needed to play six games—or be paid for six game weeks—to get the accrued season in 2014. Now he won’t become an unrestricted free agent until after the 2016 season, since players must have four NFL seasons to reach such status, unless he is successful in his efforts to get paid for his Week 17 absence.If he does not get paid for this week, he will be a restricted free agent after the 2015 season, meaning the Browns would have the right to match an offer sheet if he signed one with another team.By then, depending on what he does, the Browns might not want Gordon on their squad, which would be a shame considering his youth (23) and talent. Between then and now, maybe someone will impress upon Gordon that his behavior impacts more than just himself. Maybe if he understood that he’s influencing the impressions of others behind him he will straighten up and be a leader and abandon the nonsense. It would serve a lot of people, including himself, well. read more

Dyche insists Burnleys success makes it hard to sign players

first_imgBurnley manager Sean Dyche insists the team’s success last season has made it difficult for the club to bring in new players.The Clarets were amongst the lowest spenders in the Premier League during the summer transfer window, with the likes of Fulham, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Huddersfield Town investing more in their squad than Sean Dyche’s side.The Lancashire club were reportedly quoted with higher figures for their transfer targets due to their participation in the playoffs of the UEFA Europa League.Dyche said, according to Daily Mail:Burnley FC v Manchester City - Premier LeagueMatch Preview: Burnley vs Liverpool Boro Tanchev – August 30, 2019 Premier League leaders Liverpool travel to Burnley for the Matchday 4 of the 2019-20 Premier League campaign.“I wouldn’t change any of it. Many historical markers chiselled in stone, that’s an amazing thing, but it passes quickly.”“You asked me about credit in the bank, it’s all gone, the next challenge is the next game, it’s not, ‘Hasn’t it been marvellous?’ Yes, it has, but it’s all been parked.”“The first time we got promoted, I made my son’s bed the next day, I wasn’t rattling around with the champagne. Now we’ve got to remodel it and move it forward again.”last_img read more

Dyche hails relentless Burnley

first_imgSean Dyche was delighted with his team’s resilience in the 2-1 win over Tottenham on Saturday.The Clarets maintained their eight-game unbeaten run thanks to goals from Barnes and Wood to secure a 2-1 win, with returning Harry Kane scoring for Spurs.Burnley have won five out of the last eight matches since losing against Everton on Boxing Day.Dyche thinks the key to Burnley’s three points was his side’s resilience as they refused to buckle in a game they entered as underdogs.Asked what the key to victory was, Dyche told Sky: “I think the relentless nature, the will, and the determination that’s come back in massive amounts for us.“I think that edge that I spoke about early season was soft and now I think we’ve come back to that firmer edge with our play but also the physical side of the game in the sense of covering the distance – our stats have changed in the last eight games, they’ve been a lot higher both in and out of possession.”Premier LeaguePremier League Betting: Match-day 5 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Going into the Premier League’s match-day five with a gap already beginning to form at the top of the league.
