Unabomber Caught, KISS Reunite, and Beatles Galore! – 1996 Year in Review Pt1

This week we look at 1996, a year that celebrated the past while looking to the future. In part 1, we dig into the first half of 1996; and it was a busy six months. January includes stories on the evils of Alternative Rock and near fatal incidents involving some big name celebrities. Additionally, it included new releases from ACCEPT and Mr. Big. We head into February of 1996 by discussing some fantastic rock releases….

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. …

GREAT WHITE – Full Circle (Album Review)

GREAT WHITE – Full Circle (Album Review)

I am a huge 80’s melodic hard rock fan.  Unfortunately, with the state the music business is in, some of my favorite bands are gone never to be heard from again.  But, some live on…. although not quite in the original form.  We’ve all seen it.  There have been 2 versions of Ratt, 2 versions of Queensryche, 2 versions of L.A. Guns, etc. etc. etc.  Well, there is also 2 different versions of Great White….

GREAT WHITE – Full Circle (June 2, 2017)

GREAT WHITE – Full Circle (June 2, 2017)

It’s been a long and winding road since 1977 when Jack Russell met Mark Kendall and they formed Great White (after a few other names were used). You can read all about the ups, downs, and tragedies elsewhere but where we stand now is that we have two versions of the band releasing new material. We have Jack Russell’s Great White, who released He Saw It Comin’ earlier this year, and Kendall‘s version, simply Great White.  June 2, 2017, will see the release of Full Circle by Great White, whose line-up is…

RATT! Back For More With Great White

RATT!  Back For More With Great White

While RATT may be “Back For More” something tells me the drama of RATT is far from over.  Bobby Blotzer doesn’t come off as one who’ll lick his legal wounds and go away quietly.  But for now, the RATT name is attached to a band that at the very least seems authentic.  And like any band proclaiming their triumphant return, they came to Minnesota in February.  Bringing along a band that knows a thing or…

Jack Russell’s GREAT WHITE – He Saw It Comin’ (Album Review)

Jack Russell’s GREAT WHITE – He Saw It Comin’ (Album Review)

Like it or not, Great White is going to go forward without Jack Russell. And like it or not, they’re going to let him carry on his legacy and use the Great White name.  Once the fight was over and lawsuits were settled, the only unfinished business for Jack Russell’s Great White was  to record a new record.  Coming out on January 27th on Frontiers records, He Saw It Comin’ is, in at least some way, Jack’s shot…

JACK RUSSELL’S GREAT WHITE – He Saw It Comin’ (Jan 27, 2017)

JACK RUSSELL’S GREAT WHITE – He Saw It Comin’ (Jan 27, 2017)

Jack Russell’s Great White represents the next phase of his legacy. On January 27, 2017, Frontiers Music Srl will lay the framework for this new phase with the release of He Saw it Comin’. “For me, this is so much more than a collection of songs, it is the culmination of a lifetime of living. It is about addictions, love, pain and many facets of the human condition. I tend to write autobiographically and on…
