Musical moments we’re looking forward to in 2021
Remember how 2020 was going to be a huge year for concerts then not so much? To the tune of $30 billion in losses by some estimates. With vaccine in hand things may be looking up? Dr. Anthony Fauci says stages will be open by fall if the vaccination roll-out goes as planned. Obviously with safety measures in place. So what are we’re looking forward to musically in the new year. Among the most highly anticipated are:
Foo Fighters had to scratch most of their 25th anniversary plans last year, but the group did record its 10th studio album, “Medicine at Night,” which Dave Grohl describes as a “really up, fun record…filled with anthemic, huge, sing-along rock songs.” Two tracks, “Shame Shame” and “No Son of Mine,” are already out, and the rest is slated for Feb. 5.
The pandemic has shifted the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction timeline, with nominees expected to be revealed during January-February and the ceremony for November — hopefully in person this year in Cleveland after last year’s was relegated to HBO only.
— There’s also intrigue about the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards, switched from Jan. 31 to March 21 but still planned to be virtual, reportedly with performances from venues around the Los Angeles area.

Violet Grohl is the 14 year old daughter of Foo Fighters singer Dave Grohl. And she has performed with the band more than once BUT the game changer now is she full on wants to get in the business. Mr. Grohl is fully supporting it. He asked her the “sound” she was going for and she said the “somewhere within that shoe gazing thing” and “I need a new guitar pedal”
Speaking of him…Remember 10-Year-Old Nandi Bushell? She’s the girl who’s been drum-battling Dave Grohl. Well, she just upped the ante by covering Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song” . . . and she played all the instruments. She did it by using a loop box to first record . . . without stopping . . . the drums, bass, and two guitar parts, then used Thor’s hammer to hit a sampler to trigger Robert Plant’s intro screams. Yeah, the kid has talent

The Seattle Seahawks fired offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer on Tuesday following a season in which the team set several offensive records but coach Pete Carroll had clear issues with how the offense operated.
Seattle announced the move, citing ”philosophical differences.” The Seahawks had the highest-scoring team in franchise history, Russell Wilson threw a career-high 40 touchdowns in the regular season, and wide receivers DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett both set club records for receiving.
Still, the Seahawks regressed offensively in the second half of the season, and Wilson and Carroll both made comments following Seattle’s 30-20 playoff loss to the Los Angeles Rams that indicated concerns with the lack of adjustments by the offense late in the season. Schottenheimer, 47, completed his third season with the Seahawks after previously serving as the offensive coordinator of the New York Jets and St. Louis Rams.
Sharks forward Evander Kane filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy Saturday, according to a petition in federal bankruptcy court in San Jose, California, acquired by The Athletic.
According to the filing obtained by The Athletic,, Kane is nearly $27 million in debt and faces six active lawsuits, court actions and administrative proceedings with lending agencies.
The 29-year-old Kane signed a seven-year, $49 million deal with the Sharks two years ago. The filing noted that Kane may not play this season “because of health concerns given the recent birth of his first child.” However, the Sharks’ opt out date was Dec. 24, and Kane has been participating in training camp. San Jose would be able to carry over the contract until the next season
According to capfriendly.com, Kane has made nearly $53 million in his career. On the filing, Kane listed liabilities at $26.8 million with assets of $10.2 million. While The Athletic notes that the sources of Kane’s losses are not clear, the petition indicates that he has lost $1.5 million in gambling over the last year. The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas also settled a lawsuit against Kane for unpaid gambling bills last year.
- Major League Baseball is preparing to play all 162 games this season despite COVID concerns.
- Sources say Commissioner Rob Manfred told teams that the 2021 campaign would include Spring Training and a full slate of games.
- The season is expected to start on time.
- The league will reportedly allow fans in the stands as long as social distance protocols are in place. Last season, no spectators were allowed because of COVID. There were fans admitted at the neutral site World Series in Arlington, Texas.
- City and state mandates will determine how many people can be in the stands.
Six days of practices before the roster was cut down; two scrimmages; two off-days and here we are… GAME NIGHT. The Blues open the 2020-21 season with a 9:30 p.m. contest TONIGHT against Stan Kroenke’s Avalanche at Ball Arena (formerly Pepsi Center). After an off-day Thursday, the teams do it again here on Friday night.
That’s just one of the features to what will be another unique season in the National Hockey League. To cut down on travel, and in theory limit exposure to the coronavirus pandemic, teams are playing two-game sets against each other with rare exceptions before moving on to the next opponent. Besides all the two-game sets, the Blues do play three consecutive games against Colorado from April 20-24; and just after that, they play four consecutive games against the Minnesota Wild from April 26-May 1.
The pandemic has resulted not only in realigned divisions, but a schedule in which you play only the teams in your division. Over and over and over. For the Blues that means eight games apiece against Colorado, Anaheim, Arizona, Los Angeles, Minnesota, San Jose and Vegas. All that may seem on the surface to make it a bit boring but honestly this could really get emotions going when we really find a team to hate and we end up seeing them so much in upcoming games.
