“The more you listen to Agony & Opium, the more you find yourself wanting to be engulfed by everything this band has to offer.” - Heavy Metal Examiner
“It rocks too goddamned much. 4/5″ – Mouth For War
MODERN SUPERSTAR have revamped the lineup adding guitarist Danny Watts and making the group a 4 piece. “After coming off of the Summer Of Sin Tour it was evident that we needed to make some changes in the band. The label suggested Danny who is an exceptional guitarist and Danny was up for it. He came in, rehearsed and got the gig. We’re stronger now and much more solid. Danny was put to the test last week for a series of shows.” – says drummer Ryche Green.
Danny is endorsed by SPAWN Custom Design Guitars. SPAWN is custom building Danny his very own signature model.
MODERN SUPERSTAR have recently inked deals with A.T.A Management and a clothing endorsement with Killers Never Die Clothing.
MODERN SUPERSTAR will be sharing the stage with Tantric and Burn Halo September 20th @ Moniraes in Pennelleville, NY. A fall tour will be announced shortly. The initial debut release date has been shelved as the band heads to Alpine Sound November 13th-21st to begin re recording the project and add new tracks. A complete rework of I Part Saint, II Parts Sinner is in the works. More to come on MODERN SUPERSTAR.

When most people hear the name Bad Boys, they immediately think about the them song from the show COPS. Well back in the early nineties, there was a short lived band named Badd Boyz that featured former Quiet Riot members Paul Shortino and Sean McNabb, as well as Mitch Perry (Talas, Steeler, Heaven), Michael Guy (Shark Island, House of Lords) and Rich Carlton.
This self titled effort was released in Japan after the band split up, and has been out of print for years. So it this CD worth tracking down? If you are a fan of Paul Shortino, chances are you are going to like this. In my opinion, Paul Shortino has a very cool, and unique voice that truly stands out. I enjoyed the stuff he has recorded with Rough Cutt, and Quiet Riot, so it was only natural for me to finally track this CD down.
There are some really cool tunes on this disc including, “Leave It To The Law”, “No Time For Cryin” and “Straight To My Heart”. I would put these songs up against anything else Shortino has ever recorded. They are that good!
Some of the songs that the band put together were not available at the time this CD were recorded, so Paul fleshed out the rest of the CD with the songs, “This Must Be Love”, “Hard To Say Goodbye”, “You’re Mine Tonight” and “Save Our Land”. The only problem with doing this is, it made the CD seem a little uneven. The whole disc is solid 80’s / early 90’s style hair metal, the second half is not quite as heavy, and isn’t as good. There really isn’t a bad song on the CD, I just enjoyed the first half a lot more.
If you can find this at a reasonable price, I would definitely recommend picking it up. Ebay or Gemm may be the the only way to find this rare CD from Badd Boyz!
