Remember the Chicago based band D’Molls? Their first two CD’s D’Molls & Warped are harder to find than a Bengals Superbowl ring. If you are one of the lucky folks to have heard their music, or see them perform, you already know how cool this band is.
Long time D’Molls Singer and guitarist Desi Rexx has worked with the fine folks at FNA Records to release D-Sides, a collection of -b-sides, unreleased material & demos, never released before now. Desi has recorded songs with a bunch of famous hard rock musicians over the years. Songs on D-Sides were recorded with Andy Parker (UFO), Chip Z’nuff (Enuff Z’nuff), Bobby Barth(Axe), John Thomas(Lita Ford), Danny Johnson(Alice Cooper), Mick Sweda (Bulletboys & King Kobra) and more. It would have been impossible for him to bring all of these folks back together to record this album properly. With that being said, the audio quality is good on some songs, and lacking on others. Don’t mistake the audio quality for bad songs, as D-Sides has a collection of songs that 80’s rock fans are sure to love.
The album starts off the catchy rockabilly number “Snazzy Shoes”, the extremely cool Stones like number ‘Hi N Lo”, the glamtastic “Crimes of Fashion”. The song “Ladies Stall” is one of the most infectious tunes I have ever heard. If this song would have been released in the 80’s, it could have been a hit for D’Molls. The same can be said for the song “Love Don’t Come Easy”. With a proper recording, this song could have been huge.
“1944”, “Old Tyme Picture” and “The Answer” are also amongst my favorites on this CD.
If you are a fan of D’Molls or Desi Rexx, you owe it to yourself to check out these newly unearthed classic tunes. I enjoyed D-Sides, and I think you will too.

CHICKENFOOT EARNS GRAMMY NOMINATION FOR 3D PACKAGING OF CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED “CHICKENFOOT III” ALBUM FROM eONE MUSIC and earMUSIC/Edel
Chickenfoot Scheduled to Play The Mark & Brian Christmas Show at Los Angeles’ Nokia Theatre on December 15th Before January 2012 European Tour
Chickenfoot –the supergroup featuring guitarist Joe Satriani, drummer Chad Smith, former Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony and frontman Sammy Hagar – have earned a GRAMMY nomination for the “Best Recording Package,” for the creative 3D design of their recent Chickenfoot III (eOne Music/earMUSIC/Edel) album. The GRAMMY-nominated band plans to return to Los Angeles with touring drummer Kenny Aronoff to perform at the Mark & Brian Christmas Show on December 15th at the Nokia Theatre and will embark on a European tour in January 2012.
Designed by art director Todd Gallopo, Chickenfoot III, features an elaborately designed 3D package with optical illusions and special codes giving fans a fully immersed creative Chickenfoot experience, creating a spectacle with spectacles. With special “3D optical enhancers,” otherwise known as old-skool 3D glasses that come with each package, the cover and inside photos feature artwork that trick the eye by looking through the two different red and blue lenses of the glasses. Having used a special state-of-the-art 3D camera rig to create the designs, Chickenfoot gives fans a truly multi-dimensional experience throughout the packaging that also offers a 3D photo of each band member with stats and Q&As, QR codes for behind the scenes 3D video content from the photo shoot on smartphones and much more. A look through the red lens even reveals a very special message on the CD itself.
The band recently wrapped a sold out 2011 Road Test Tour that took them through San Francisco, Los Angeles, St. Louis, Chicago and New York with a stop for a performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!. In each city along the tour, Hagar made a donation to a local food bank in a special partnership with Feeding America to encourage fans to do the same to help fight hunger, an important message that he also intended to convey through the music video for “Three And A Half Letters (I Need A Job).”
The first single from Chickenfoot III, “Big Foot,” debuted at #1 on the Mediabase Classic Rock Chart holding the position for 11 weeks, earning over 1.85 million listeners, and the album received critical acclaim. Chickenfoot III features 10 tracks with so many moments of epiphany that one can barely take them all in on first listen. Colossal, stadium-shaking riffs abound on earth-movers such as “Alright, Alright,” “Last Temptation” and “Lighten Up.” Tradition meets innovation on the Nashville pop-tinged “Different Devil,” the Delta-blues flavored “Something Going Wrong” and the aching rock ballad “Come Closer.” Chickenfoot III debuted at #9 on the Billboard Top 100 and follows the band’s 2009 debut album, which debuted at #3 on the Billboard Top 100 and was certified gold for sales over 500,000 units by the Recording Industry Association of America.

In 1977, legendary guitarist Rory Gallagher went into the recording studio and laid down an entire album that was never released. Unsatisfied with the songs, he scrapped them and went on to record another album (with a lot of the scrapped songs being re-worked). Fans thought that “lost” album was gone forever. In 1995, Rory Gallagher passed away due to liver complications. There was much mourning throughout the rock world over the loss of this guitar God. Earlier this year, an archival recording was released to help further celebrate the musical genius of Rory Gallagher. This two-disc collection contains the “lost” album that fans thought they would never hear, as well as an exceptional live recording.
Boogie-woogie, bar beating, foot stomping, down and dirty, fun rock and roll! Notes From San Francisco is all of that and more. Notes From San Francisco is a 2-disc treat for the fans that mourn the loss of Gallagher. Disc one contains unreleased material recorded in 1977 that never saw the light of day until now. Disc two is a smoking live performance recorded at the Waldorf in San Francisco, CA, back in 1979. This collection is out to help preserve the memory of Rory Gallagher as well as promote his good time rock and roll to a whole new generation of fans.
While most of the songs on disc one have been heard in a different format, the unreleased versions are classic enjoyment. Gallagher lets loose his inner demons on the guitar solos and embraces the hard rocking blues style of these songs. At times it sounds eerily reminiscent of a lost Steppenwolf album, until the guitar solos. Those are unquestioningly Rory Gallagher’s. It’s easy to see why he was named one of Rolling Stone Magazine’s greatest guitarists of all time. The man can play the guitar like few before (or after) have.
Notes From San Francisco is certainly your daddy’s rock and roll, and that’s a good thing. The spirit of the 70s is alive and well on both the disc of unreleased material and the live disc. Rory was a man who knew how to rock and this historic 2-disc set really drives that point home. Close your eyes tight and listen to the live disc at a decent volume, and you will swear that it is Jimi Hendrix in both the sound of the guitar and the lead vocals. Rory Gallagher was a legend that other legends looked up to.
Performing riffs that would make Eddie Van Halen envious, Rory Gallagher was a master of the guitar. His talent truly shows on Notes From San Francisco. Listening to the live tracks, one can’t help but wonder how uniquely awesome it must have been watching him play his six string in a live setting. The way his fingers massaged the guitar and plucked those strings, it was simply astonishing. Blistering solos never sounded better. Hearing the live disc after a disc full of unreleased studio material is a real treat for music fans all over. If you’ve never heard Rory Gallagher live or if you’ve never heard him at all, then Notes From San Francisco would be an excellent introduction to this legendary axe genius.

NEW ALBUM “UNBREAKABLE” IN STORES JANUARY 24th IN NORTH AMERICA ON FRONTIERS RECORDS
German power metal legends PRIMAL FEAR are gearing up for the release of their new album “Unbreakable” this January. Recently the band shot a video in Nurnberg, Germany for the song “Bad Guys Wear Black”. Check it here!
“Unbreakable” combines the skills of the strongest PRIMAL FEAR line-up ever, with a well-balanced “back to the roots” vibe and an ambitious learning process that took place during their longest tour so far. Classic and ultra-fresh PRIMAL FEAR riff-rockers like “Strike”, “Give Em Hell” or the high speed track “And There Was Silence” will hit the bulls-eye, like the rhythm paced metal anthem, first single and new video clip “Bad Guys Wear Black”. Less experiments, more rock! But there will be a nine-minute epic journey with prog approach named “Where Angels Die”, a classic wonderful ballad “Born Again” and the melodic power bomb “Metal Nation”. Singer Ralf Scheepers adds: “the plan was to record an album for the fans with rough metal riffs, screaming vocals and good melodies …… and finally it became a monster – a tough ‘bang-your-head’ metal album called “Unbreakable“.
Magnus Karlsson and Alex Beyrodt are worldwide respected guitarists – together they are unbeatable! Ralf Scheepers vocal performance shines brightly on a new level on the new album. And what can go wrong if you’re backed by one of the best rhythm sections in metal with Randy Black and Mat Sinner? Plus backing vocals by the “Fantastic Four”: Ralf Scheepers, Mat Sinner, Erik Martensson and Oliver Hartmann. You can hear the results on Primal Fears new statement called “Unbreakable“!
“Unbreakable” was produced by Mat Sinner, engineered and mixed by Achim Koehler at the House Of Music studios and some more studios in Germany & Sweden between the summer and autumn of 2011 and will include the following tracks:
Strike; Give ‘Em Hell
Bad Guys Wear Black
And There Was Silence
Metal Nation; Where Angels Die
Unbreakable (Part 2)
Blaze Of Glory
Conviction; Night Of The Jumps (Bonus Track)*
Bad Guys Wear Black (Video)*
* Only available in the first pressing in digipak

And then legendary DJ Tom Russell of 96.3 Rock Radio called Doogie and asked him if he would do some acoustic numbers at The Garage in Glasgow for Rock Radio’s Birthday Bash in January 2008. Doogie agreed and asked Chic to play guitar. It was a big ask after 20 years: almost 1000 people, Doogie singing alone and Chic with one flamenco guitar! “We had such a blast though and it woke up so many great memories in both of us that we decided to give it a go with the full band for my 50th birthday” said Chic.

Frontiers Records is excited to announce the return of MICHAEL THOMPSON BAND with the release of the brand new album “Future Past” on February 24th in Europe and February 28th in North America.
In 1988, after working to try and get a deal with his band Slang, guitarist Michael Thompson finally got signed by Geffen Records to release one album entitled “How Long“, under the Michael Thompson Band (MTB) monicker.
On “How Long” some great studio musicians appeared as guests, in particular drummer-maestro Terry Bozzio, singer Moon Calhoun (ex The Strand), Pat Torpey (later on drummer with Mr Big), bassist Jimmy Haslip, John Elefante (Kansas), Toto’s Bobby Kimball and Great White associates Michael Lardie and Wyn Davis (who also produced the album). Songwriters would include, among others, AOR stars such as: Jeff Paris, Mark Spiro, Billy Trudel and Brett Walker.
As of today “How Long” is still regarded as one of the highest examples of hi-tech AOR / West Coast, with a superb production and immaculate songwriting. “I think the album has stood the test of time with a great batch of songs and some really strong performances. It was heartfelt and I think people respond to music that comes from the heart. I’m glad that many fans of melodic rock still list this record amongst their favourites,” tells Michael Thompson.
“How Long” was reissued in 2007 with 3 bonus tracks and started a relationship between Michael Thompson and Frontiers Records, which finally brings the anticipated release of the new Michael Thompson Band album in early 2012. “I’ve tried to keep the new MTB album “Future Past” in the same spirit as “How Long“. I’m hoping that people will hear the natural progression of my music and appreciate the new record as much as the first one,” continues Michael. “Although 22 years is quite a gap time-wise the music was recorded with the same feeling and spirit as I always had”.
For the new album Michael teamed up with the awesome singer Larry King from Soleil Moon. Larry brought a new and more rocking approach to the MTB sound, but certainly the trademark elements of songwriting and melodies are still to be found in the new album “Future Past”. In Michael Thompson words: “When I was considering singers for this new record I said to myself “Who is the best rock singer that I know?” and only one person came to mind – Larry King. The guy has such a phenomenal range and texture and it goes perfectly with my guitars. We started writing songs together a little over a year ago and from the first song, “Can’t Be Right”, I knew we had something special!”
MTB 2012 lineup is rounded up by Khari Parker on drums and Alan Berliant on bass. “Larry brought them into the picture and it was a pleasure for me to work with some knew guys that I wasn’t familiar with. It brought a fresh approach to the music,” says Michael.
The production of “Future Past” is just flawless and the album is destined to become soon another AOR music classic. “I think that the title kind of says it all – “Future Past“” concludes Michael. “Larry and I are both big fans of Classic Rock and AOR Melodic Rock so we just naturally infuse that love into the music that we write. It’s elements of the past with a modern approach”.
“Future Past” tracklisting includes: High Times; Can’t Be Right; Future Past; When You Love Someone; Here I Am; Beautiful Mystery; Break Me Down; End Game; Gypsy Road; Can’t Miss 2012; Fight For Your Life.
The first single “Can’t Be Right” can be listened in full in streaming on the Frontiers Web Radio now! Tune in at: www.frontiers.it/webradio
Michael Thompson is one of today’s leading guitar players of the world. He was awarded the “Distinguished Alumni” award from his Alma Mater Berklee College of Music to commemorate his contributions to the music industry. Berklee’s program for the event noted that “he is widely regarded as being among the elite studio session players, and his amazing list of credits includes such prominent names as Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Celine Dion, ‘N Sync, Toni Braxton, Phil Collins, Rod Stewart, the Scorpions, Vince Neil, Christina Aguilera, Michael Bolton, Mariah Carey, Bette Midler, Madonna, Babyface, En Vogue, Gloria Estefan, Stanley Clarke and Ricky Martin.”
I have to admit that Beggars & Thieves is a band that I forgot about several years ago. I had their 1990 debut on cassette, and never got around to replacing it. Thanks to Beggars & Thieves new CD, I am thankfully getting reacquainted with the band’s music.
I didn’t know what to expect with We Are the Brokenhearted, and I have to admit I have been enjoying this CD quite a bit. The music of Beggars & Thieves is guitar oriented melodic rock. The music is not over powered by keyboards. It isn’t too heavy, but it is definitely not on the mellow side either. The music is just rocking enough to be interesting, but smooth enough to appeal to pretty much everyone. ( I believe Beggars & Thieves could create their own genre of smooth rock.)
Singer Louie Merlino has a terrific voice which is bolstered by the excellent guitar licks of Ronnie Mancuso. The whole band is solid, and they have crafted some very fine tunes on this CD.
Some of the album highlights include the songs “Beautiful Losers”, “Seven Seconds”, “Stranded” and “Midnight Blue”. I love the saxophone that closes out the title track “We Are The Brokenhearted”. I just wish there was more of it. “We Are the Brokenhearted is a really cool tune to close the album out with”. Quite frankly, there really isn’t a bad song in the bunch.
We Are the Brokenhearted is easily one of the best melodic rock CD’s I have heard in 2011. If you have forgotten about this band the way I did, We Are the Brokenhearted has 10 outstanding reasons to get to know the band again. Don’t miss this!!!

Is it possible for an AC/DC like band to outdo AC/DC? If there was a band up to the challenge, ’77 would be the act. ’77 recently released their sophomore effort, High Decibels, and they show no sign of the dreaded sophomore slump.
Singer Armand Valeta continues to show his near perfect vocal mimicry of AC/DC’s legendary singer Bon Scott. His brother, LG Valeta, has Angus Young’s sound and style down to perfection. Sure the music or style isn’t very original, but what ’77 lacks in originality, they show in the pure passion they devoted to the music. Their latest effort High Decibels is a another hard rockin’ affair that will please those that enjoyed the band’s debut album, 21st Century Rock. Some of my favorites on this CD are the high octane title track “High Decibels”, “Let’s Beat It Up” and “Gimme A Dollar”.
If you need an AC/DC like fix to hold you over until Brian Johnson & Angus Young record another album, High Decibels is an album, you will want to purchase. I enjoyed it, and I think you will too.
You can listen to the song “High Decibels” below! The album is available for purchase at this link.

RAM was created back in ’99 and released their first E.P Sudden Impact in 2003. After playing numerous festivals and a support tour for Sebastian Bach they released their first long player Forced Entry in late 2005 which brought the entire old school Heavy Metal community to its knees. RAM hit the road with Dark Tranquillity, did some Scandinavian shows with Gamma Ray and played gigs and festivals all over Europe.
In 2008 the band returned to the studio with producer Johan Reivén to record the album Lightbringer which was released in 2009 via AFM Records. This time they really took the time to explore the true heavy metal sound. The recording of the album took 10 months of nothing but strife for pure Heavy Metal perfection. RAM also headed out on a headline European tour to promote the album.
In 2011 RAM went back into the studio to record their third album Death. This time they worked with producers Per Stålberg and Olle Björk to create their best album to date by far. Live shows as support for Swedish extreme black metal band Watain followed as well as destroying some festivals.
The world trembles in fear before the release of the metal behemoth that is Death. RAM are back! Necks will be broken!

New York’s D Generation and Guns N’ Roses came to U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati, Ohio on Friday December 2nd.
I have been more excited about this show than many concerts in the recent past, as I never got to see Guns N’ Roses live back in the day. D Generation took the stage sharply at 9 P.M. and played a high energy set which the large crowd seemed to enjoy. I have to admit that I am not very familiar with D Generation, but I liked the songs that I heard in their set. The last time the band played in Cincinnati, they opened for KISS back in 1996, so hopefully it doesn’t take them another fifteen years to come back to Cincinnati.
I have to admit that I had no idea what to expect with Guns N’ Roses. My expectations were somewhat low for this show. I didn’t know what kind of shape Axl Rose’s voice was in. I have never heard his current band play before. I have loved the original incarnation of Guns N’ Roses for so long, I never gave the new version of Guns N’ Roses a chance. With that being said, Axl Rose & company, BLEW ME AWAY!! Axl Rose is still singing at the top of his game, and his three guitarists DJ Ashba, Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal, and Richard Fortus, all trade off the lead guitar duties. Each one of these guys are tremendous musicians, and they all put on one hell of a show. DJ Ashba might be the guitarist to help take Guns N’ Roses back to the top. He gives Guns N’ Roses a recognizable face that fans automatically associate with. The cool thing is, Ashba, Thal and Fortus play together perfectly. Axl had no problem sharing the spotlight and gave his trio of axe slingers plenty of time to share the limelight. He even let bass guitarist Tommy Stinson handle the vocals on the cover of the Dead Boys tune “Sonic Reducer”.
Guns N’ Roses stage show was one of the biggest ones I have seen in quite some time. Video screens were set up on the far left and right hand side of the stage, as well as a massive video wall behind the stage. The lights and pyro were extremely cool. No matter where you were sitting, you saw a great show. Axl and company took the stage at 10:45 and played for nearly 3 hours with the set list below.
“Chinese Democracy”, “Welcome To The Jungle”, “It’s So Easy”, “Mr. Brownstone”, “Sorry”, “Shackler’s Revenge”, “Estranged”, “Rocket Queen”, “Live and Let Die”, “Riff Raff (AC/DC cover)”, “This I Love”, “Sonic Reducer (Dead Boys cover)”, “Street Of Dreams”, “You Could Be Mine”, “Sweet Child O’ Mine”, “November Rain”, “Don’t Cry”, “Whole Lotta Rosie (AC/DC cover)”, “Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door (Bob Dylan cover)”, “Nightrain”, “Madagascar”, “Better”, “Patience”, and “Paradise City”.
This concert made me a believer in the current version of Guns N’ Roses. I used to dream about a Guns N’ Roses reunion, but after the show I saw Friday night, I do not long for a reunion anymore. I am anxious to see how far this band can take things in the current lineup. If you have been on the fence about going to see Guns N’ Roses in your area, you should buy a ticket. This was an amazing night of rock and roll, and easily one of the best concerts I have seen in lifetime.

Does anyone else think these guys would make a great opening act for Guns N’ Roses?Vodpod videos no longer available.
Cincinnati rock station WEBN conducted a very cool interview with Guns N’ Roses guitarist DJ Ashba. Want to know what DJ said about replacing Slash in Guns N’ Roses? Check out the interview here!
Is it ironic that I am listening to Slash’s first live CD, Made in Stoke 24/7/11, the night before I see Guns N’ Roses for the first time (without Slash)? Maybe…maybe not?!
Made in Stoke 24/7/11 captures Slash with Myles Kennedy (Alter Bridge) on vocals, and his band which features Todd Kerns (Sin City Sinners) on bass, Brent Fitz on drums and Bobby Schneck on rhythm guitar. The 21 songs on this two CD set are a mix of Guns N’ Roses, Slash’s Snake Pit & Velvet Revolver tunes. This live set was captured at Victoria Hall in Stoke-on-Trent, England, the same town where Slash was raised.
In this live show, Myles Kennedy has the daunting task to cover songs from four different singers including Axl Rose, Eric Dover, Rod Jackson, Scott Weiland (six if you count the song “By The Sword” which was sang by Andrew Stockdale from Wolfmother, and “Promise” which was sung by Chris Cornell). It is a difficult task to ask any singer to take on, but Kennedy does an admirable job on all of the songs. With that being said, Myles Kennedy is no Axl Rose. His vocals seem a little higher pitched than Axl’s, and it to me, it make those class Guns N’ Roses songs sound a little odd. I thought Myles sounded better on the post Appetite for Destruction material, especially “Civil War’ which he totally nails. I have never heard the Slash song, “Nothing To Say” played live. It sounds pretty damn amazing. I also thought Kennedy sounded as good, if not better than Chris Cornell on the tune “Promise” from Slash’s recent solo CD.
Todd Kerns handles the vocals on the tune “Doctor Alibi” that was originally sung by Lemmy Kilmeister. I honestly think Todd sounds better than Lemmy on this tune. This song absolutely rocks and I prefer the live version, to the studio track.
If Myles Kennedy ever needed to prove he should take over as singer of Velvet Revolver, just listen to “Slither” on CD 2. One again, Kennedy nailed this one, and sounds terrific.
Slash and his band, played all of the songs to perfection, and I enjoyed the music on both CDs a lot. This tour did not come close to my hometown, so I am thankful that I can hear and see what I missed! Slash’s guitar solo of “The Godfather” on disc 2 is incredible. You have to hear it, (or see it) to believe it.
Depending on what version of Made in Stoke you purchase, you can get a two CD set, or two CD/DVD set that captures the live set on video as well. Whichever version you choose, you will have two hours of excellent hard rock music at your finger tips. If you are a fan of Slash, or Myles Kennedy, you need to get this. Check it out!

From USA Today:
Mötley Crüe has announced a three-week stint at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas starting Feb. 3 for four days a week. As the first hard-rock band to sign on for a Vegas residency, the group promises “over-the-top craziness,” says lead singer Vince Neil, 50.
Tickets for Mötley Crüein Sin City range from $65 to $179.50 and go on sale Saturday at 1 p.m. ET/10 a.m. PT at motley.com, the Hard Rock website (thejointlasvegas.com) and Ticketmaster.
The stationary show is a new concept for the band that’s currently touring with Def Leppard in the U.K.
“When it doesn’t have to move around from city-to-city, day-by-day, options become incredible,” says drummer Tommy Lee, 49, who adds that the show will be an interactive experience where fans are “in the show, not watching the show.”
Though the guys are vague on details, they hint at naked Girls, Girls, Girls, some non-Crüe entertainers, a souped-up drum kit and sky-high production values. “You’re going to leave and say, ‘Dude, I can’t believe what just happened here,’ ” says Lee.
The band will be rocking together a decade after the release of autobiography The Dirt: Confessions of The World’s Most Notorious Rock Band. A lot has happened since then: Lee has been DJing electro-house music with DJ Aero, and Neil was a contestant on ABC’s Skating With the Stars and came out with his latest solo project last year, Tattoos & Tequila. Both said “the time was right” for the Vegas gig.
Neil, who is a Vegas resident, says he’s excited to perform for all the walks of life that visit his city. “It’s going to be everybody — a biker standing next to the attorney,” says Neil.
Attendees are “coming there to rip it, Vegas-style,” says Lee. “That’s why we signed up for this.”
