Jackson Heaton

I was born in a hospital next to a dirt road in a small Georgia town. A town that everybody knows everyone and you can’t hide secrets. They still hold mine against me. Even after all these years, I still love being on the lake in North Georgia, wakeboarding and drinking cold beer.
After a few years of doing sports broadcasting, I stumbled into a building that said Rock 100.5 on the door and begged to get on the air to play great rock tunes and have some fun in a city that I always loved, Atlanta. After a lot of blood, sweat and tears, here I am!
The best part of Atlanta are the amazing bands that rock hard at these kickass venues and much of my weekend is spent jamming out with all of them. This city is always hopping, so let’s have some fun and debauchery in the middle of the night.
Love the Hawks, been a fan for life! Rooftop bars, anything on the water and good company is fine with me. I’m goofy, awkward and I dig anything crazy!

Great Movie Moments

Hey Rock family, it’s Jackson.

I have no idea how someone took the time to rank these movie moments, but come on! They got this totally wrong.

The greatest movie moment of all time is the Big Kahuna burger scene in Pulp Fiction. However, this iconic movie moment got #23. That is wrong and disrespectful. #1 was a scene from Star Wars involving Han Solo. Again, wrong! What a disgrace. “Say hello to my little friend” from Scarface got #14. Ridiculous. It is easily top 5. SMH.

Check out the full list of the so called 50 top movie moments below:

INTERVIEW: ALICE COOPER

INTERVIEW: ALICE COOPER

Hey Rock family, it’s Jackson. Had the privilege of speaking with Alice Cooper today about his new album “Detroit Stories” and so much more. This dude is 73 and still sings/plays like he just started. Other than being a complete badass, he is just such a nice, intelligent guy. We started off by him giving me marriage advice and it just went off from there. We talked some Detroit living, the unique aspect of 70’s bands, our love of golf and his inspiration to become a legendary shock rocker. I had to find out what made Alice Cooper “Alice Cooper.” Gene Simmons claims “rock is dead,” so we all want to know what Coop has to say about it. Find out what he makes look easy and what band he would sing for if it wasn’t his own. New record coming from not only Alice Cooper, but also Hollywood Vampires. This dude is busy. Enjoy!

 

NEW BLACKBERRY SMOKE!

NEW BLACKBERRY SMOKE!

Every band started the same….small. At one point, they were all local bands playing to empty bars where the attendees were the bartenders. That’s the beauty of making it big; remembering how it started. I love being “Atlanta’s Rock Ambassador” because I get the honor of supporting the best talent in Atlanta and witnessing them at their start and following along with the journey. So many great bands have come out of Atlanta, such as Mastodon, Collective Soul, Tetrarch, Sevendust, The Black Crowes, etc. Another one of those great hometown bands that made it big is Blackberry Smoke! if you have never seen a live Blackberry Smoke show, you are missing out. Put it on your bucket list!

They just released a new single, “You See Georgia.” You got to love music that pays homage to the home state. This song is so good…check it out below!

AC/DC “PWRUP” TEASER

Finally! After over a year of the runaround, we finally get new AC/DC! We know this album is a tribute to Malcolm Young and we can’t wait to hear it!
