"I want to talk about football today because one of my heroes, Frank Gifford, died today," said Roth during an extended intro to the band's cover of "Ice Cream Man." "Football has everything to do with who I am today and I would not be here without that. I played Pop Warner football religiously from the minute I was able to qualify until - like Menudo - I was too big and they kicked me out.
"I was no good, my enthusiasm far outweighed my abilities, and at least half of what I know I learned from Coach Kelly, Coach Brown, and my Dad was one of the coaches, too."
"I grew up with a poster of Bob Dylan on the wall, there's a picture of Jimi Hendrix on the wall, and there was a picture of Bart Starr, Vince Lombardi and Frank Gifford right next to them," Roth continued. "The Van Halens know what I'm talking about. Every morning, starting in 7th grade, I wanted to be those guys - any of them.
"I'm going to play the rest of this for Frank and everything he stood for. Everything that makes America just super good, baby."
Gifford played 12 seasons for the New York Giants, winning the league's Most Valuable Player Award in 1956 as part of the team's NFL championship. He appeared in eight Pro Bowls at three different positions - running back, defensive back and wide receiver - and was inducted into the Pro Football Hall Of Fame in 1977.

On Monday (August 10), posted a clip of a quartet of masked musicians wearing Christmas sweaters in what seems like a recording studio decked out with a Christmas tree. She captioned the video, 'When your derp squad writes a Christmas song in August"
Watch the clip yourself and get in the holiday spirit--even if it doesn't portend a full studio album, a new song would be the perfect present for Perry's legions of loyal Katycats. See the clip here.
In the interview, YG says that he's had a hard time trusting anyone since his shooting. "The circle is real small right now. Especially 'cause I just got shot. I don't trust nobody. I don't know who shot me. I don't trust muthaf--s. I don't like muthaf--s right now."
"I feel like when I'm in the 'hood, I'm safe," he says. "I'd rather go to the hood. I feel safer in the hood than goin' to the mall or something." He notes that he wounds were thankfully not serious. "That was the first time I got shot. I thought the bullet would've hurted more. But I didn't get hit in an artery or bone, it was all flesh."

Kenny ditched farm life in Virginia to pursue his dream of making music in Nashville. Fueled by faith, authenticity, and plenty of heart, Big Kenny And Family follows Kenny, his wife Christiev, and their sons, Dakota, Lincoln, Christopher and Cameron, as they navigate their unordinary home life while Kenny is on a break from his whirlwind tour.
Big & Rich are killing it in the charts and Kenny's on the road well over half the year, making the few days home with his family truly special and completely unpredictable. Despite his crazy travel schedule and Christiev's back-to-back styling gigs with A-list clientele, the couple manages to find the perfect balance between full-fledged rock stars and devoted parents.
Viewers will get the chance to take a peek inside Kenny's celebrity lifestyle and may be surprised to find that when he's not filling stadiums and concert venues, he lives a typical life - albeit influenced by his over-the-top personality - filled with family dinners, yard work, date nights, playtime and bedtime stories.
The band had the following to say about the song, "Kestrel is a really exciting part of the album for us, as it brings out the band's softest moments and most intense moments all in the same song.
"Each instrument slowly builds on one another and keeps escalating toward some serious energy. It's a dynamic shift unlike anything we've really done before. We're super excited to play this one live!" Check out the song here.
"As a band we're known for our high octane live shows, we wanted a video that captured it and with Hourglass we finally have that," say the band. "The live performance is extremely real, the blood, sweat and tears that created the song can really be felt in the video.
"Keir Siewert (director) and Isabelle Bonfrer (actress) captured the obsessive nature of a warped mind, the filming was easy for such talented people, we essentially gave them the space they needed and what came out was incredible." Watch the video here.
Powerhouse Books say: "Ehrbahn's camera stops time and captures the surprising and life-affirming moments when the headbangers abandon all semblance of vanity and surrender to the rhythm.
"Ehrbahn transports us to an intimate world disconnected from time and space - a universe where it's possible to transcend the frenzy and enter an altered state that brings calm, joy and relief." Read more here.
Formed in Poughkeepsie, New York, in 2011, the trio of vocalist Chrissy Costanza, guitarist Dan Gow and drummer Will Ferri issued their debut EP, Infinity, in 2014 and recently completed sessions for their full debut album.

The Wall Street Journal reports that the rise in digital music and the corresponding decrease in physical CD purchases led to its demise on the long running business.
"This decline is directly attributable to a confluence of market factors that substantially altered the manner in which consumers purchase and listen to music, as well as the way consumers purchase and watch movies and television series at home," explained the company's director Glenn Landberg in the bankruptcy filing.

Now, Rule seems to be using this as an excuse to let new music go for the first time in a while. Last week, he released two new tracks called 'The Memoire" and 'The Memoire Pt. 2." Today, he's back with another slice of tough Big Apple realness called 'New York Giant."
As you might expect, Rule goes into detail about his city and what makes it special, referencing several streets and neighborhoods. He asks himself what sets New York apart, and answers succinctly--'Big cars, bigger money." Read more here.
The singer and guitarist says: "The concept behind Dawn Of Ages is loneliness and how we are trapped in these modern and chaotic societies. It's a song about our routines, about our quotidian, but with the hope of improving 'something' and assuming your own path in this world.
"Dawn of Ages is the last song of the album and it closes its concept with soft, introspective and progressive tunes." Marquez is joined in the Chilean outfit by drummer Nikolas Recabarren and bassist Juan Diaz. Watch the video here.
'Unity' was recorded at the legendary Bohus Sound Studios in Sweden, whose long list of clients since the start 35 years ago includes both ABBA and Status Quo (who recorded their hit album and best-selling single "Rockin' All Over The World" in the same studio).

"Having the number one single right now, it's the most surreal time of my life," he told Radio.com yesterday, clearly amazed. "It's a song that two of my buddies, Justin Wilson and Michael White, wrote it. Scott Hendricks produced it, he's a legendary producer. This is his 60th number 1 single!" Hendricks' discography includes albums by Blake Shelton, Alan Jackson and Trace Adkins, among other legends, and Ray is flattered that he had the opportunity to work with the man.
Earlier this week, Michael Ray performs the song on Good Morning America, but many of his new fans have already seen Ray's marquee-ready looks in the song's music video. Filming it was a new experience for the singer.
"That was brand new, I'd never shot a music video before. It calmed my nerves that we shot it in Eustis, Florida, my hometown. We were able to do the whole thing on the main street of my town, and my grandmother was in it at the end."
"My grandfather passed away earlier this year, in February, that's his name on the back of the airboat. We made a flag with his name on it. My thing was, this is my first video and I wanted to go back to where it all started. Your first song is your introduction, and I wanted the world to see where I come from." Read more here.
We were approached by Cass Pennant to write a title song for his new project and film Beverley. The film is based in Leicester in the 80's and tells the story of a young mixed race girl growing up during a time of racial tension and centres around her love of the two tone movement. It was something we could really get our teeth into and ultimately started the writing process off for the new album "A Life Unlimited".
The film is directed by talented up and coming director Alex Thomas and he was kind enough to send over some rushes from the film that our long time video collaborator Lee Cogswell cut around myself (Neil Jones) singing in one of the locations where Beverley was filmed. We wanted the video to tell the songs story.
