Sweet Crude’s tour ended abruptly at the Crowbar in Ybor City, Florida. The tour to drum up interest in their upcoming major label debut was cut short by the Covid-19 pandemic. Bob Pomeroy was at that show.
Legendary Rock Photographer Bill O’Leary snapped darn near every band of note in the past forty years. Float down memory lane from Zappa to Alice Cooper.
The Essential Rob Halford (Legacy). 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.
Throngs of faithful old-school arena rockers squeezed into their faded vintage Judas Priest and Iron Maiden T’s and partied once again like it was 1989 at the Tampa stop of the Scorpions “farewell” tour. Chris Long was, of course, among them.
Thunderball (The End Records). Review by Vinnie Apicella.
Better You Than Me (Unknown Controller). Review by Joe Frietze.
A clothing line based on his tattoos. A new band. A new dedication for his instrument. Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx skips the past and talks about present projects and a future of cracking coconuts on the beach. Gail Worley digs up the dirt.
