TEAZE – Teaze (That 70’s Guy – Retro Review)

That 70’s Guy – Review Of Teaze’s 1976 Debut It’s time again for a trip through the time machine to unearth another 1970’s long lost gem. This time, my “That 70’s Guy” Retro Review comes courtesy of Canada’s own Teaze and their 1976 debut album. Yes, 1976 again; what a year it was. I guess it was only fitting that the awesome 1993 tribute movie “Dazed and Confused” took place in 1976, and, believe me,…

REVOLUTION SAINTS – Light In The Dark (Album Review)

REVOLUTION SAINTS – Light In The Dark (Album Review)

Frontiers’ president, Serafino Perugino, is my hero.  He seems to be completely invested in saving the hard rock genre all by himself.  One of his “supergroup” creations, Revolution Saints have just released their 2nd album.  Deen Castronovo (Journey, Bad English, Hardline), Jack Blades (Night Ranger, Damn Yankees) and Doug Aldrich (The Dead Daises, Whitesnake) are once again paired up with producer/songwriter Alessandro Del Vecchio (Hardline, Jorn) to create an absolute masterpiece.  Spoiler alert, I love…

LET THERE BE OZ ROCK – Part One (Blog)

LET THERE BE OZ ROCK – Part One (Blog)

Before I moved to Australia from the Welsh valleys back in 2002, I didn’t really know much of anything about Australian music past or present. All I knew was the usual few Aussie bands that everyone in the world knew of at that time, bands like AC/DC, INXS and Midnight Oil. As the years have passed, I have never lost my love for music and continually search out new and interesting bands to discover and…

MICHAEL SWEET: The voice of STRYPER (Concert Review)

Michael Sweet – Solo acoustic tour Goldfield Trading Post 9/30/2017 Sacramento, CA While Stryper is on a bit of a hiatus, the energetic Michael Sweet never stops.  This man can’t stand still for a minute.  Whether it’s continually touring or releasing new music yearly under the monikers of Stryper, Michael Sweet, Sweet & Lynch, etc. etc. etc., obviously Sweet doesn’t believe in the statement that “Rock is dead!” Although I’ve seen 300+ shows in my…

The End Of Summer 2017 Part Two – GRAND ROCKTEMBER V

The End Of Summer 2017 Part Two – GRAND ROCKTEMBER V

While Grand Rocktember may cater to an audience with a median age that skews a bit north of your average festival, the second day starts largely the same.  The first people on scene are a mix of those who aren’t hungover, those who are still drinking and the event crew.  Walking in we were treated to another all female tribute band.  This time it was Iron Maidens.  Another uncomfortably spot on interpretation from the singer. …
