Cheap Trick is one of those bands that just appears at shows. Watching Stone Temple Pilots in Rockford?  Guess what?  Here's Rick Nielsen to play Surrender.  Checking out Rob Zombie?  Guess what?  Here's Rick Nielsen to play Helter Skelter.

Hotel Davenport Demolition

The Hotel Davenport is located at 5202 Brady St. and was reportedly built in the early 1970s. Earlier this year it was decided that this hotel was no longer set to have guests.

According to the Quad Cities times, the Davenport hotel has faced a number of fires, along with safety and health code violations. This has led to the call for its demolition. I've driven past it many times and have seen that the building had clearly began to deteriorate.

It was scheduled for demolition earlier this year, and said demolition began in April. Many involved in this project are excited to see what the future holds for this lot in Davenport.

I drive past this spot every day for work, and over the last month have snagged some pictures of the demolition.
