So what have Chandler Massey (Ex-Will) and Casey Deidrick (Ex-Casey) been doing since they both departed Days of our Lives?  Well, partly they are making music and a new music video with their band, And Still I Rise!  And today, the band has released a music video of their cover of Miley Cyrus top hit, “Wrecking Ball”!

Now, And Still I Rise version of the Miley tune is quite different than the original … think the sound of rock band Linkin Park with a more heavy metal twist!

The band consists of:  Casey Deidrick (Vocals), Chandler Massey (Keyboards/Vocals), Stephen Haynes (Guitar/Vocals), Michael Gross (Guitar/Vocals) and Josh Bonaparte (Bass/Vocals).

In the newly released music video it seems like a night of pseudo-frat boy fun, complete with liquor and a bong, goes awry when a ghost joins the party!  However, take a listen as you watch the video down to the great vocals of Chandler Massey and Michael Gross!

Now, watch “Wrecking Ball” with the guys after the jump! Then, let us know what you thought of the bands sound, seeing Chandler and Casey again, the video contents, and if you like And I Still Rise version of the tune better than Ms. Miley’s?

It is sad to see these guys collect money through Kickstarter to produce ridiculously poor music videos like the last 2 I have seen. They are awful in my opinion.

I sincerely hope the other guys follow Chandler Massey’s lead and enroll / or return to college for an education and an earnest future.

What a shame and a waste of time and resources.

Libby, for the cover of Miley Cyrus’ song, they didn’t collect money through Kickstarter. They did that for the song “65 Roses” and it was to raise awareness for the devastating effects that Cystic Fibrosis (CF) has on people that suffer from it. The music is metal and probably not your type of music but it was certainly not a ridiculously poor music video! The acting was to show a person with CF, struggling to stay alive and I think it was ridiculously WELL DONE! Matter of taste I guess.

The “Wrecking Ball” song was hilarious and it seems like the guys had good fun making it and why not! And I think there is more to that song/clip, than you probably care to know.

Wrecking Ball is good fun but what’s with the “ghost” symbolically I guess for something the group conquered? Or someone. Like to know if you do. All big fans here.

I think the “ghost” conquered one of the band’s members. Symbolically and literally..

I am far from a metal fan but AISR is really doing a great job. Yea I listened because of Chandler and Casey. They made a video that is a riot. Absolutely is a frat party. And really after seeing that skank Miley doing Wrecking Ball. These guys totally improved on the song.

True, we all have different tastes. I am familiar with CF. We had a member of my extended family pass away from the disease at age 18. It was tragic. I still think that there are much better ways to bring awareness for CF – especially with $30k. Chandler Massey is a multi talented individual. I know very little of the other members of the group. These are young guys with potential and hope they all pursue worthwhile endeavors.

This version…WAY better than anything Miley Cyrus could have done! I am a rock/metal fan, and this ASIR version makes me like the song; the bands’, not MC’s version. Casey and Chandler are doing a rockin job with their band, and I cant wait to see what else they release. I cannot stop listening to “Sixty Five Roses”, and their video for that song is bitchin’! And Still I Rise is one of my new fave bands, and I think Chandler has a great voice! Casey is rockin it too! Way to go guys! Congrats, and keep on ROCKING!

I would like to hear them sing a more conservative song – one without such background noise because the voices sound nice, but background noise took away from the song. As for the video, it was not my cup of tea, but I don’t begrudge others who enjoyed it. Do a different song/video so I can enjoy the voices.

Not a fan of the drug use in this video, at all. Major turnoff.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Gabi’s Revenge Plot Begins To Unfold; Watch Out Abigail and Stefan!

Evil Gabi is back on Days of our Lives, and that means some great material for Camila Banus (Gabi) to sink her teeth into. After all, who doesn’t love a Gabi scorned?!  This week, viewers already learned that Gabi has already switched the paternity results to make it look as if Stefan (Tyler Christopher) is the father of Abigail’s (Marci Miller) unborn child, when it is really Chad’s (Billy Flynn).  To top it off, she is manipulating and “advising” Gabi on what to do about her paternity secret

On Tuesday’s episode while in the park, Gabi reflects on changing the paternity results and says out loud to herself: “Karma is a bitch. Since you and Stefan ruined my life …” but she stops talking when all of a sudden Stefan appears.  He wants to talk about “Gabi Chic”, and their mutual business interests, but she’s not having it one bit!

She blasts him and his fictitious girlfriend “Gabby” for framing her for murder, and all that has transpired in her life since then including: being beaten up in prison, which has left her unable to have any more children, due to a surgery and an infection she developed while in the slammer for a crime she did not commit.

Gabi says she is not like her ‘Madre.”  She believes in revenge and that people like him deserve to be punished, and that she wants to see him suffer like she has. Stefan is hoping that Gabi will eventually trust him, put the past behind them, and work together.  Stefan exits and once alone, a vengeful Gabi says:  “You and your little whore, Gabby, took something from me that’s precious. Now it’s my turn to take something from you.”

Then to put an exclamation point on her revenge plot, Gabi grins that “all hell will break loose.”

Are you glad to see Gabi back with an edge as she plans to make Abigail and Stefan’s life a living hell? What do you think will be the next move in her master plot? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

DAYS Preview – Week of July 16, 2018

This week on Days of our Lives, hell hath no fury like a Gabi (Camila Banus) scorned!  Now out for revenge after receiving devastating news that she can never conceive another child, Gabi has switched the DNA results to make it appear to Abigail (Marci Miller) that Stefan (Tyler Christopher) is the father of her unborn baby.

How far will Gabi continue to sink to carry out this lie and to give payback to Stefan and Abigail as her alter “Gabby” for sending her to prison for a crime she did not commit? Is her former lover, Chad (Billy Flynn) collateral damage in all of this?

Meanwhile, Brady (Eric Martsolf) prepares to say goodbye to his son, Tate after losing custody of his son when the judge rules in Theresa’s (Jen Lilley) favor, but will fate intervene, allowing Brady to keep his son after all?

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Ben Fights Off His “Killer” Instincts As Rob Scott Wilson Delivers Power Performance Of The Week

In Days of our Lives’ version of Beauty and the Beast, in this case Ciara (Victoria Konefal) is the ‘beauty’ and Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) is the ‘beast’ she is to tame, last Thursday and Friday’s episodes illustrated to us where this duo could be heading in the future.

But first things, first.  The situation took a horrifying turn for Ciara, and for Ben, when he runs into the cabin beside himself!  He informs Ciara he went to the pharmacy to get his prescription but the police have swarmed the place.  Getting more and more agitated, Ben tells Ciara, he blames her, and her mother, Hope (Kristian Alfonso) for putting an APB out on him!  Ciara says she didn’t say anything to her mother.   But, Ben is losing his grip on reality fast and he desperately needs his meds.  He’s on edge and begs her not to call Hope, as he can’t go back to the sanitarium.  Ciara tries to calm Ben down and insists that she won’t to that to him, but suddenly, he becomes more unglued and stomps on her cell phone!

Next, Ben is hallucinating thinking he has handcuffed Ciara to the bed – the same thing he did to Abigail!   He sees Ciara in the handcuffs.  Ciara tells him she is not in them and to look at her hands.  All of a sudden, as she tells him she is on his side, and will help him through this, he calls her, “a lying little whore, just like the rest of them.”  Ben thinks she believes he is a ‘killer’ like everyone else, because she has now grabbed a knife to defend herself.

Ben tells Ciara that maybe he hasn’t changed at all, he is a serial killer, and now that he is off his meds he sees things very clearly. Ciara tries to calm him down and assure him everything will be OK.  When he closes his eyes and then opens them, he still sees that Ciara is handcuffed to the bed.  Crawling more and more out of his skin, Ben begins to hear his father, Clyde saying, “She’s lying to you, boy …trying to fool you … the same as that slut Abigail.”

Now, Ben hallucinates that Clyde (James Read) is in the cabin, egging him on to strangle Ciara, red necktie and all!  As Ben fights off his father’s attempts to make him do heinous things to Ciara, (he even hears Clyde telling him to burn down the cabin), yielding a knife Ciara calms Ben down saying Clyde is not really there.  Ben admits he doesn’t know what’s real anymore.  Ciara puts her knife down and offers her hand to hold on to. Ben takes Ciara’s hand and sits down as Clyde’s image fades away.  Ciara begs Ben to run to the pharmacy to get his meds. She promises she will not use her phone.  Ben exits.

However on Cliffhanger Friday, Ciara is engulfed in flames in the cabin, with no Ben to be found, and Rafe (Galen Gering) getting a signal from her cell directing him and Hope on a collision course with Ciara and Ben.

Throughout the two episodes of Ben’s battle with his sanity and how he is haunted by what he has done to others, and vacillating. between reality and delusional, Rob Scott Wilson illustrated once again, that given the material that his performances of Ben are mesmerizing. Wilson’s scenes make you stop whatever you may be doing, and take notice.  That is why Rob is our pick for the “Power Performance of the Week.”

So, what did you think of Rob’s performance?  What did you think of what happened in the cabin between Ben and Ciara? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
