Wild Ones: Keep It Safe Album Review


keepitsafecover6a0a17

I am not much of a loud rock genre person, but Keep It Safe by the Wild Ones is amazing. It was quite disappointing though how some of the sounds are repetitive and you cannot really hear the lead vocalist singing. Her voice was too soft and husky that the instruments basically play the whole song. Although, correct me if this is what rock music suppose to be like, because I do not listen to loud rock. This album was all clean so good to listen to all the tracks if you like. I would recommend tracks 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, and 8.

The Acacia Strain: New Album and Upcoming Tour


The+Acacia+Strain+acaciastrain_detail

My current favorite death metal band, formed in 2001 and hailing from Chicopee, Massachusetts is The Acacia Strain. They have a real primal feel, great for when you want to listen to something very loud and very angry, their music is somewhat similar to Six Feet Under. If this is your first time hearing of them I’d suggest starting off with their album Wormwood, and the song Beast in particular was what got me hooked on them. It’s rare that I’m disappointed in how loud my stereo get’s, honestly it really never happens except when I play this band. Maybe I should get a new one that goes to “11.”

Where are the rock stars?


At the beginning of its conception, rock and roll always had its poster boys, from Elvis Presley and Bob Dylan to Axl Rose and Seven Tyler. However, the age of the rock star is gone. The days of sold out stadiums and arenas, the sex, drugs, rock n roll life style, and the iconic rock stars are all gone. Why has such a fantastic thing as that disappeared, or rather burned out?

GNR Album Review- Appetite for Destruction


For those of you who are faithful readers of my blog, or listeners of my show know that I am a huge Guns N Roses fan. It is my estimation, with good reason that they were the last hard, fast and dirty rock n roll band, rock n roll in its purest un adulterated state. However their time together would be short lived. How then did they become the biggest, most dangerous band in rock in roll. With the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame Ceremony fast approaching, it is time for a song by song all album review of Hollywood’s favorite sons, Guns N Roses.

Chickenfoot iii


If supergroups are your to your liking than Chickenfoot’s new album Chickenfoot iii is for you! Sammy Hagar and Michael Anthony formerly of Van Halen, teamed up Joe Satriani and Chad Smith of the Red Hot Chili Pepers to formed the Band Chickenfoot back in 2009 and have recently released a second album entilted “Chickenfoot iii”. Yes even though this is the band’s second album it is called “iii”. This sequel follows the same formula as the first album, no two songs sound a like and its a departure from the first album. The album the features the range of hard rock to blues rock on the album. Sammy Hagar vocals are strong as ever and shows the great songwriting skills that helped his former bands reach great sucess, Montrose and Van Halen. Joe Satriani shows off his usual ear blasting guitar play and ease to change from song to song. When Michael Anthony was replaced in Van Halen by Wolfgang Van Halen, Eddie Van Halen’s son, he has nothing but time and great bass play to devote to Chickenfoot. [Read more…]

The interview with artist Jonathan (Charron) Waller


Unfortunately due to a lock out from the station we had to begin the interview several moments late, but Jonathan Waller was very humble and sympathetic over the situation. We started off the interview by playing some of his beats that he had produced in the background. He explained that he called his beat strictly by the number three and that he makes songs that are easy to remember by name .
