Brad Paisley Agrees to Jam with Teenager Who Wrote Song About Him

Jan 26, 2015 -- 10:11am

 

Brad Paisley has agreed to make a dream come true for a young musician named Blaze — and the guitarist has YouTube to thank for it.
According to his website, Blaze got his first guitar at the age of five — the same year he saw his first Kiss concert and decided that he would devote his life to music. He has been playing professionally since age 12, and gigs with his band around Las Vegas. He has developed a lightning-fast pick technique that incorporates influences from classic blues to metal and ’70s arena rock, but in recent years he has become enamored of country music, which first caught his ear due to Paisley’s technical proficiency on the guitar.
The young guitarist set his sights on getting to jam with Paisley, and he wrote and recorded a song titled ‘Brad Paisley’ that is based around the tag line, “I wanna jam with Brad Paisley.”
The song details all the things the young musician would be willing to do to make that dream come true — including mowing Paisley’s lawn — and features him in a number of humorous situations with someone who’s had Paisley’s face dubbed in over his own. The track’s outro also features Blaze in a jaw-dropping trade-off guitar solo, partly as himself, and partly as “Paisley,” in which he emulates Brad’s style in places.
It didn’t take long for Blaze to get his wish. He posted the video to YouTube on Jan. 20, and the following day, Paisley himself took to Twitter to accept his offer.

 

If Mike Ditka Had a Young Son Now He Wouldn't Let Him Play Football

Jan 20, 2015 -- 10:34am

Mike Ditka was a Hall of Fame tight end and a legendary coach, but if he had a young son now, he wouldn’t want him to enter the family business. Ditka said he wouldn’t want a child of his now to play football on an episode of HBO’s “Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel” that will air on Tuesday.

The coach’s opinion came out during this exchange with Gumbel in which the host also says he wouldn’t want his children to play football:

Ditka: “If you had an 8-year-old kid now, would you tell him you want him to play football?”

Gumbel: “I wouldn't. Would you?”

Ditka: “No. Nope. That's sad. I wouldn't. And my whole life was football. I think the risk is worse than the reward. I really do.”

The episode is about the 1985 Bears, whom Ditka coached, and the lasting effects that medications and playing through pain has on those that were on the team. Ditka advocates that the commissioner and owner ought to do something to help the former players.

In the episode, Jim McMahon said he struggles so much sometimes that he will just lay in his bed and stare at the ceiling fan for days or weeks at a time.
