Our thoughts are with the families and friends of the victims of Sunday night's shooting in Menasha which killed four people and wounded one.

Jon Stoffel (33) and Olivia Stoffel (11) were both killed in the shooting. Jon's wife Erin was also shot and injured and remains in critical condition. A GoFundMe donation page has been set up for the Stoffel family if you would like to help.

WAPL will continue to give major updates as they occur, and will share additional ways you can help and show support in the coming days.

Even though I play the actual drums, and I've been attempting to learn a few chords on a real guitar... I'm still pretty excited for the new Guitar Hero Live and Rock Band 4 games coming out this year. There's just something about strapping on a plastic guitar and pretending to be a rock star that appeals to the teenage Elwood in me.

Details are pretty sparse for Rock Band 4 at this point, but Guitar Hero Live is now available for pre-order (here) and the trailer (see below) is pretty cool. (Note: that's actual game footage!)

Here are some of the info:

The all new Guitar Hero. One game. Two ways to play. GH Live, where you can rock real crowds with real reactions. And GHTV, the world’s first playable music video network. With a continually updating library of hundreds of videos across genres, there's something for everyone. Make sure you’re one of the first to rock out.


Here's the official Guitar Hero Live trailer:

Thin Lizzy is one of those bands that I never appreciated until recent years. Of course I knew "The Boys Are Back in Town," and to a lesser extent, "Jailbreak." But beyond that I knew nothing. Thanks to WAPL listener requests for stuff like "Whiskey in the Jar" and "The Cowboy Song," I started exploring more about the best band to come out of Ireland (sorry U2) and have not been disappointed.

For me, Thin Lizzy has become one of the most underrated rock bands of the 70's. If you want proof, look no farther than this compilation of EVERY Thin Lizzy guitar solo from 1971-1983. It's awesome to have on in the background while you're at work.

And if you haven't heard WAPL playing the new song "The Killer Instinct" from Black Star Riders (re-branded Thin Lizzy, without founding bassist and singer Phil Lynott), check it out below. They're playing with Europe at Potawatomi Casino in Milwaukee on April 24th.

Let's say you're a huge Bon Jovi fan and decide to show your love with a tattoo of one of their lyrics. Please make sure the tattoo artist has a basic understanding of grammar... and how to spell "Bon Jovi"

See the whole thread on Reddit.

We all lost an hour of sleep this weekend. It doesn't help farmers. It doesn't help energy costs. It does increase heart attack rates, work-related injuries, and suicide rates, however.

As "Last Week Tonight with John Oliver" put it... How Is This Still a Thing?

A New Jersey school bus aide was recently caught on surveillance rummaging through students' backpacks, stealing money and food from the 3 to 5-year-olds she was supervising.

If they hadn't caught this lady on tape, we would have offered up some additional suspects...

Lambeau faithful, you now have a goal to break. Check out the video of this fan in Turkey attempting (and failing) to smuggle a couple dozen bottles of beer into a soccer match.

Those security guards are going to have one hell of a post-game party.

The Packers may not have made it to Super Bowl XLIX, but at least a couple of them made it to the 2015 East-West Bowl on this weekend's Key and Peele Super Bowl Special on Comedy Central. Maybe next year we can sign Grunky Peep.

I’m not sure what AMAZED me more today …
The DRAMATIC and HEROIC rescue of the window washers off the side of the World Trade in NYC
The MIND-BENDING fact that a space probe was actually landed Armageddon–Style on a MOVING comet
That there’s actually a movie coming out (on ‘Lifetime’) based on the internet meme sensation 'Grumpy Cat' called “Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever”
Well F%*K Me... I can't decide - let's go with 'Grumpy Cat'
