What a hefty slice of Classic heavy Hard Rock/Metal bands that shall thunder down the house at this annual (I believe this is their 2nd year) ROCKLAHOMA Concert Festival! My goodness what a phenomanel Concert billing list of great talents that shall perform there: I'm happy to see the legendary Hard Rockers VAIN (I bet Webmaster Jefnel1's wife Nelley has her bags packed already for that's her favorite band, I think. smile.), Tesla (fantastic Cowboy band) & Beautiful Creatures (I love them/I have their Deuce album/Cd in which absolutely adore and I'm happy to say I did see them along with when I saw The Beast Mandy Lion/WWIII fame when performing at the famous Club Vodka venue in December 2003/Los Angeles Ca...'I believe. And both bands put on a bad ass show! :twisted: 8O ) on that list and "many" other greats (that are announced & in the works) that will be present. My goodness that's going to be a awesome 4 day extravaganza Event hosted by such an amazing legendary Vocalist Bret Michaels :!: Wow...'I wished I'd lived in Oklahoma. Enjoy & be safe for those that are fortunate to attend this special ROCKLAHOMA Fest Event July 2008. Cheers. 8)

My band Valor is playing the 2nd stage...as it stands we are inbetween Extreme and Triumph, but they will be adding Sammy Hagar to our night (Friday).So our time slot should actually be between triumph and Sammy.Pretty freakin cool.Jake is going to be there with Enuff Z Nuff on Thursday!!!

The list of bands is killer, they will be adding Motley Crue, Sammy and were told the Scorpions as well.

Im gonna need a vacation to recover from this.I will have a backstage pass for 3 of the 4 days according to our manager and the Label owner.Since Ron Keel is playing the last night, I may have one for the 4th as well.....going to be insane :)

I'm just blown away that he's actually playing live somewhere again! I haven't heard a thing about him playing on Enuff Z Nuff new disc, but then again, I don't keep up with them.

It looks to me like the organizers of Rocklahoma would try to get Jake to do a full set of solo material or something. That would be very cool. I agree with Badseed...a set with Paul Shortino would be killer! \nn/
