Wes’s Musical Meltdown for 08/28/2018: Mourning Some Musical Losses, New Tunes, and Ten Worst Power Ballads

On this week’s show, we begin on a somber note, discussing the passing of three musicians since the previous show. We also hear new music from Kane Brown, Bring Me The Horizon, and many more. The show wraps with a recap of a top ten list put out by Classic Rock/Louder, the supposed ten worst power ballads of all-time. Listen, and judge for yourself. The audience and I certainly disagreed with the list.

This week’s cover comparison comes to us courtesy of Tom Cochrane and Rascal Flatts.
