lawrence c., new york city 04/15/11
artist: Tom Waits
Review: Rock Hall of Fame said it best: It,s a tribute to Waits? writing talent that so many of his songs have been recorded by artists who usually compose their own material, including Bruce Springsteen ("Jersey Girl"), Tim Buckley ("Martha"), Johnny Cash ("Down There by the Train"), Bob Seger ("16 Shells from a Thirty-Ought Six"), T-Bone Burnett and Tori Amos (who each covered "Time"), Steve Earle ("Way Down In the Hole"), Sarah MacLachlan ("Ol" 55?), Norah Jones ("Long Way Home"), Elvis Costello ("Innocent When You Dream"), the Pogues ("Tom Traubert's Blues") and Rod Stewart ("Downtown Train").
What other songwriter but Tom Waits could claim to have been covered by both the Eagles ("Ol" 55") and the Ramones ("I Don?t Wanna Grow Up") His songs have also been covered by Screaming Jay Hawkins (whose voice is as unbridled as Waits' own), Solomon Burke, Marianne Faithfull, the Neville Brothers, Robert Plant and Alison Krauss, and the Blind Boys of Alabama. All of this establishes beyond the shadow of a doubt that Tom Waits is a songwriter's songwriter and, as VH1 declared him, "one of the most influential artists of all time."

Teri Smith, Whitewater WI 03/16/11
Review: Interesting report, made me want to investigate the tower. I am sensative to spirit energy and had my first spirit encounter when I was 10 yrs old but was unaware of what I was experiencing until I was 12yrs old. At 16 I learned how to use that sensativity to identify paranormal activity. My personal experience walking past the Oak Grove cemetary, the time was aprox. 7:45pm October 2009 on the north side of the cemetary north side of the street. I felt a very errie almost angry energy eminating from the cemetary as if something/one were trying to get out. I have been to the tower and felt no energy possitive nor negative driving counter clockwise around it. Vertigo is the likely culprite if anything is felt there. The current fence also is not iron.

artist: Slipknot
Review: What can i say? I FUCKING LOVE SLIPKNOT! I recently saw Joey and Corey at Soundwave (obviously with different bands. Joey is now with Zombie and Corey with Stone Sour) and i must say, it was absolutely amazing! Insane and crazy! You know what, words cannot even touch the feeling of amazement i still have for that festival. Mainly from Rob Zombie though because i was in the mosh for that and ohhhhh ;) When i saw Joey i swear i creamed my pants- no shit. I would probably die if i ever got to see Slipknot live (Rest in Peace Paul) because even when i see their name on a set (Rock Am Ring 2009) my heart literally does shit, like skips a beat or goes really fast. I would really love to see Slipknot :( 7/9 members were apparently at Soundwave, but i only got to see Joey and Corey. But COREY CUT HIS HAIR!!! And AHHHHH! Im just getting toooooo excited now -.-

Katarina, Zagreb 03/11/11
artist: Onerepublic
Review: Personally, I think there has not been nor will ever be a better band than OneRepublic. Partially because they make their own music by themselves, that's why they are original and don't sound like anybody else out there, or worse, as a product of someone else. You can say that with the Waking up album they have finally found their sound, something they were looking for. The other reason why I think they are waaay ahead other bands is that they are writing songs that change the way people think. Their lyrics are stories that help you get through life in hard times, and kick you out of the bed when your life is great, require of you to see the sun and the greatness of the life. They encourage you to live full, meaningfull life and that's why I like them. I remeber Ryan said in some interview, when he was asked what's his moto in life, he said: "Life is too short not to be able to do whatever you wanna do". I think that's what he was trying to say when he wrote Happy fo! r Leona Lewis, that's what inspires me every day. And the music they make as a just beyond amazing. They couldn't have been anything other than musicians. In fact, they could have been, but that would be just a loss for hummanity. :) Ciao!

Lee Baumann, Whitewater, WI 02/04/11
Review: I have lived in Whitewater since I was four. I lived in the only house (directly in line with a side of the triangle) at the base of the hill under the tower. That house has had many happenings inside it and is probably why it was torn down a decade after we moved out. I can attest to many of the things in this town.

Patti Jo, Hanna, IN 02/04/11
Review: This show was incredible!!! My body was taken over by the music and I couldn't help but want to be a part of every song. It was my first Linkin Park concert and it did NOT disappoint me one bit! You can watch the videos on YouTube all you want but nothing compares to sitting (standing) in that arena with these remarkable musicians on stage! The drumming of Rob Bourdon, Mixing of Joe Hahn, Bass of Pheonix, Guitar Riffs of Brad Delson and of course Vocals of Mike Shinoda and Chester Bennington! These 6 guys make sure that your ticket is worth the money! I can't wait to see them again!

I was walking alone there two autumns ago ( I didn't believe what my friends were telling me about the place) and I cam across a peculiar headstone, as i bent down to investigate closer the temperature went down 20 degrees as a very odd shadow canvasses my body as I turned in horror a sinister voice said "you will die soon" I still have violent nightmares and would never go anywhere near that town again!!
