Hard Rock Makati Supports Philippine "Habagat" Flood Relief.

Nearly two weeks of monsoon rains across the Philippines' main island of Luzon peaked with a 48-hour deluge earlier this week that battered Manila and surrounding regions. Thousands more Philippine flood survivors crammed into evacuation centres on Friday as waist-high water covered vast regions and the death toll from a week of misery rose to 70.The flooding that submerged 80 percent of Manila early in the week had subsided, allowing people to return to their homes, but some areas remained submerged as more rain fell there.

The Hard Rock Cafe Makati acted quickly to help the victims to provide healthy, nutritious food.

For Hard Rock Records and its first band – Americana-infused, Mississippi septet, Rosco Bandana – it truly is Time To Begin. The first release from the band and label is available for digital pre-order through iTunes and for preview via Amazon and will be available to the masses on September 25th.

The band, discovered as part of Hard Rock’s 2011 Hard Rock Rising Battle of the Bands, have already shot a video for their first single and are fresh off an official Lollapalooza after party performance in Chicago this past weekend. They’ll hit the road this September, in support of the release of the album.

"I hope people get something honest out of our music," says singer/guitarist Jason Sanford. "I hope they're able to feel something, and to empathize with it when they hear the lyrics."

08.06: Guns N’ Roses debut album, Appetite for Destruction hit #1 in  on this day in 1988. Already on the charts for the previous 57 weeks, the album’s slow burn to the top in no way diminished its success, as it has since sold 27 million copies worldwide. Good thing Axl's still got Appetite bringin' in some bucks, in the wake of "G-N-R's" last album. We won't name that last album because, frankly, we want to forget it. We want to remember the real Guns N' Roses. We want to remember the first time we heard "Welcome To The Jungle" and knew that it was some whole next-level stuff. Man, what a great album! Too bad that initial lineup burned out after only two proper albums. Yeah, Use Your Illusion (both of 'em) has some great moments, but stand it next to Appetite and you got nothing.

08.06: Rick James, super freak extraordinaire, died of a heart attack on this day in 2004. Did you know? Rick James and Neil Young were once in the same band in the mid-'60s. For real. Read that again. The man who brought us "Super Freak" and the man who brought us "The Needle And The Damage Done" both played together in an Ontario R&B band called Mynah Birds. What's even weirder is that Mynah Birds, which never released an album, also included in its lineup, at one time or another, future members of Steppenwolf ("Magic Carpet Ride") and Buffalo Springfield (of which Neil was also a member). It's just weird.
