Sad News: On December 11, 2017 we lost our friend and fellow musician Peder Hedman way too early in life.

On March 30th, 2018 there was be a special live show celebrating Peder's music at Linneman's Riverwest Inn. Proceeds from this event were donated to the Cyril G. Hedman irrevocable trust.

For now, here is a video of Liquid Pink that Ron of MRP shot in 1987. RIP, Peder.

Cheap Trick at Humpin' Hanna's with In A Hot Coma, circa 1974 (?). We got this amazing artifact from Martin Miller and Martin Krohne. Krohne recalls the night:

"Our biggest gig was backing up Cheap Trick. At it, Presley Haskel, lead singer, wore skin tight leopard skin pants.

And he liked to jump around a lot onstage.

What Presley didn't realize was that the seam of his pants split just enough to show off more than he had planned.

This lead Rick Nielsen of Cheap Trick to thereafter refer to him as

'The King of Milwaukee Dick Rock'."


Les Paul Show Update: Jay Tiller's 1982 Blonde Les Paul Won Second Prize at the show.
