Craig Goldy Defends Holo Dio Tour

The HoloDio is officially on tour and there are at least a few naysayers.  Don de Leaumont of elegantly named The Great Southern Brainfart made a Facebook post on December 10 suggesting that Craig “put an end to this shitshow,” to which the guitarist responded with: “You’ve missed the whole point. It’s your way that disrespects Ronnie, and you think it’s what I’m doing that disrespects Ronnie.” Grab some popcorn.  The exchange continues; Don:  Craig, my name’s Don…

Put together by brothers Jake and Paul Figueroa (formerly of Crobot), Brodero is rounded out on lead guitar by fellow New Jersey boy Joe Cirotti.  Their first single, “Liars and Thieves”, drops on December 12th.  It is a rifftastic little ditty which may or may not be a reference to Jake and Paul’s prior band.  When asked, Jake was more pragmatic saying “I mean, we are all liars and thieves in someway right?”  The lyrics…

Gene Simmons Banned From FOX News

Gene Simmons Banned From FOX News

Famous men of all ilks (actors, musicians, politicians, Chris Berman) must be furiously Googling themselves in an effort to trigger any memories of the type of inappropriate treatment of women that is killing the careers (and possibly more) of some of their peers while praying that TMZ doesn’t corner them and ask for quote about Harvey Weinsntein.  Or Kevin Spacey.  Or Louis CK.  The KISS fan in me wondered if anything like this would ever…

The Glorious Sons – Young Beauties And Fools

The Glorious Sons – Young Beauties And Fools

The Glorious Sons first hit my radar with the redoubtable song “Sometimes on a Sunday”.  And their debut full length record, The Union,  was as good as any album released in 2014.  Their sophomore effort Young Beauties & Fools is a follow up that doesn’t disappoint.  Two records in I think its safe to include lead singer Brett Emmons among the best singer/lyricist’s in rock today. Young Beauties & Fools is a collection of auto-biographical…
