Give a Guns tune a listen in there very near future. Turn it up and realize why this list is not flawed. Recognize the truth Axl gives these tunes, no matter if some will write them off as cheesy, schlock rock.

I should have cried the night I saw my childhood idol, Bryan Adams, in the flesh for the first time in my life recently in Calgary. Bryan Adams was not in town to perform any concert. He was in town to showcase a very different talent and passion of his -- photography, particularly in the genre of celebrity portraits.

When Jian Ghomeshi came on the air last week on his show Q to announce that Mumford & Sons were stopping by in a few days to play in-studio, he described them as "Acoustic Rock Sensations."

You get into work, and you are already behind. Sometimes it feels endless. As a naturally depressed and anxious person, here are some things I suggest you do to relax...
