THE ROCK FATHER: THE POP CULTURE MAGAZINE FOR FAMILIES THAT ROCK.

Giveaway: Enter for a Chance to Win SCOOBY-DOO! & KISS: ROCK & ROLL MYSTERY!

Ever since I first previewed Scooby-Doo! & KISS: Rock & Roll Mystery back in April, I've been waiting for the chance to get someone hooked-up with a copy. That time is now, as Warner Bros. and THE ROCK FATHER Magazine are bringing you the best (because you wanted the best, right?) and giving readers a chance to score this all-new animated movie on Blu-ray + DVD + Digital HD with UltraViolet Combo Pack. KISS serves-up six classic songs for the film, along with one newly-recorded song just for Scooby-Doo! Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer are voicing themselves, while other guest stars include Kevin Smith, Jason Mewes, Darius Rucker and more. Check out the details...

Giveaway: Win PEANUTS Greatest Hits by the Vince Guaraldi Trio

PEANUTS Brand AmbassadorWith Blue Sky Studios and 20th Century Fox releasing THE PEANUTS MOVIE on November 6, generations of fans both old and new are discovering the adventures of a boy named Charlie Brown. Those adventures with Snoopy, Linus and Lucy, Pig Pen, Peppermint Patty, Schroeder, The Little Red-Haired Girl and more are timeless, and I'm in the crowd that holds sincere hope that Steve Martino will have crafted a worthy companion when his film arrives in theaters. For THE PEANUTS MOVIE, it's composer Christophe Beck (ANT-MAN, FROZEN) that has some big shoes to fill - those once occupied by the Vince Guaraldi Trio. It was Guaraldi's music that became just as iconic as the creations of Charles M. Schulz, and for many (likely myself included), a first introduction to jazz. On July 31, Concord Music Group will release a new collection under the Fantasy label - PEANUTS GREATEST HITS. Featuring a dozen classic songs and all-new liner notes by Derrick Bang (author of the career-spanning book, VINCE GUARALDI AT THE PIANO), Concord Music Group and THE ROCK FATHER Magazine are pleased to give readers a chance at winning one of five (5) copies of the album on CD!

Join the Craftsman Club & Enter to Win a Chance to Attend the Craftsman MAKEcation in Brooklyn!

Craftsman CrewTHE ROCK FATHER has partnered with Sears as a paid member of the Craftsman Crew. Are you #MadeToMake?

As a kid, the first tools that I ever came to know were Craftsman. Most of those were purchased from the classic Sears store in the long-gone Park Forest Plaza - a store that I have many memories of - a place that seemed larger-than-life. Of those tools, one thing that I eventually inherited was a set of screwdrivers from the late 70s/early 80s - the same ones I use here at Rock Father HQ today... the ones still sold by Craftsman all these years later, and still Made in the USA. They've been regularly-used tools for nearly four decades, and now I use them on my girls' toys. But age has instilled in me a growing urge to make things.

Giveaway - Win THE WRECKING CREW on Blu-ray from Magnolia Pictures!

If you're into music history like me, a must-see for this year needs to be THE WRECKING CREW. Just-released on Blu-ray by Magnolia Pictures, Denny Tedesco's documentary was inspired by his father, Tommy - a member of the legendary, yet largely unknown musicians known as The Wrecking Crew - the true performers behind some of the biggest hits of the 60s and 70s. In fact, the sheer volume of famous tunes that this crew contributed to is in large part the reason that this film (which started loose production back in 1996) took so long to get a proper release - the music licensing fees were expensive.  After some limited screenings, Tedesco raised funds via Kickstarter to get the licensing wrapped, and now it's available to the masses. The folks at Magnolia Pictures recently provided me with a couple of copies on Blu-ray, and one of those could soon be yours...

Get Ready to Rock with Pringles® Summer Jam!

Tracking Pixel

Pringles SummerJam 300x128When you're into playing music, everything around you has the potential to be used for sonic purposes. While I've always been a guitarist first, I've been known to have percussionist aspirations, going as far as to put a five-piece drum set in our garage - something that The Rock Daughters™ and their friends really enjoy dabbling with. When the crew over at Pringles® asked me to offer up some thoughts about how I'd do a jam (like their Pringles® Summer Jam® Summer Jam!) I agreed, but at Rock Father HQ, there's music being played every day already. I just can't say it's always good, but I'll strap a few Pringles® cans to the drum set to see what I can do...

SHERIFF CALLIE'S WILD WEST is one of the rising stars of Disney, so it's no surprise that our unboxing and review of the new collection of toys from Just Play was a big hit here on THE ROCK FATHER Magazine back in April. Now, if you're following along, you might've caught mention of something on my Facebook page right around the same time - that we were planning a giveaway for something in that box. You see, the folks at Just Play sent us both their medium plush and bean plush assortments, so we decided to set aside the complete set of bean plush for a reader giveaway, and that's happening right now!
