Slave Vows (Agitated). Review by Jason O’Neal Griggs.
The Greatest Hits (Universal Republic). Review by Christopher Long.
Mightier than Motley and prettier than Poison, ’80s So-Cal metal missionary poster boys Stryper returned to Orlando for some arena-rock-style praise and worship. Long time fan Christopher Long was in the front pew.
This is the End of Control (Hollywood). Review by Laura Pontillo.
With enough bad blood between the bands to make Keith Richards envious following a transfusion, the Mötley Crüe/Poison/New York Dolls Tour was more of a Deathmatch than a good-time, glam revival. Chris Long snuck in on the action.
For those in need of a concert that’s a little more theatrical than most, there’s Meat Loaf, served up with a side of Pearl. Jen Cray caught the Orlando date of the legendary rocker’s Hang Cool Teddy Bear Tour.
Billy Corgan is The Smashing Pumpkins and, as a recent Orlando show proved to Jen Cray, his cast of brand new bandmates brings a whole new fist of fury to the band’s sound and performance.
By all accounts, Adelitas Way vocalist/songwriter Rick DeJesus should have become a statistic. Ink 19‘s Elianne Halbersberg talks with the artist about how music — and VH1 — saved his life.
Jen Cray is delighted to report that Green Day has morphed into an unstoppable rock ‘n’ roll band, capable of holding entire arenas of fans in the palm of its collective sweaty hand. Whether you believe it or not is up to you.
There certainly was no sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll party at the House of Blues as the almighty Queensryche forced fans, and Chris Long, to bask in their eternal greatness.
Having survived near fatal overdoses, porn scandals, reality shows, and twenty five years of a fickle music scene, Mötley Crüe continues to sell out arenas all over the country. Jen Cray tossed on her leather and lace and sprayed her hair upward toward the Gods in preparation for the Orlando show… not really, but she did jam out to their Greatest Hits album on the way to the show.
Tragic City Symphony (New Ocean Media). Review by Andrew Ellis.
