Charity Spotlight: Butch Walker's Autumn Leaves Project Receives Donation in Honor of Sharon's Father
Sometimes it's easy to take life for granted. We get comfortable and assume that everyone that we love will always be there. Until they are not. And it hurts like no other hurt that you've ever felt in your life before.
One week ago today, with one of his hands in mine and the other in my mother's, my father took his last breath and left this earthly life for the next due to pancreatic cancer. This has been one of the most difficult experiences of my life. I am blessed to have been there for the prior weeks of his life to help care for him. It is an experience that will forever be vivid in my memory, bittersweet as it was.

Having tweeted using the hashtag #GetReadyGetSetSad to describe it, one may think that Butch Walker's tour to support his new album, Afraid of Ghosts, would be a depression-themed run in the wake of his father's death.
And the first stop of the tour in Pittsburgh did have its share of tear-jerking moments. But not before Walker single-handedly revved up the crowd with just a guitar and bass drum.

So, in a time when even metal luminaries are declaring that "rock is finally dead," one may expect the band to have the tendency to stick with what has worked in this time when so little has worked for so few.
But Halestorm isn't a band that wants to do what you expect. It's a band that does whatever the, um, heck it wants. And that is a major theme behind their latest and polychromatic release, Into The Wild Life.
