THE GENE SIMMONS BAND in St. Charles, Il (Concert Review)

Gene Simmons and The Gene Simmons Band came to far west suburban Chicago and conquered. The performance was amazing as was the set list. In fact, I would have to say I enjoyed this show more than the last two times I saw KISS and more than the times I saw KISS on the tours from Lick It Up to Crazy Nights. Guitarists Ryan Cook, Jeremy Asbrock and Phillip Souse played with precision while drummer…

A fantastic roster of bands, many of which we had been severely looking forward to, capping off with the headliner of Hardline. Our day began very similar to the previous ones here in Pekin Illinois, a little like watching the Bill Murray movie, Groundhog Day even. The essential day starter of Andy’s…

The Story of Rock n’ Skull – Day 2, Saturday October 17, 2015

The Concorde Inn housekeeping staff seem to favour an early start as they were already knocking on our room door before 8 AM! Well, we were all up anyways fighting each other, huddled in the corner by the room door vying for our own piece of the weak WiFi signal (whoever was closest to the room door, stole the signal from the rest of us!).

The Story of Rock n’ Skull – Day 1, Friday October 16, 2015.

Three Canadian Decibel Geek staff, Brian Ronald, Shawn “Animalize” Irwin and Rich “The Meister” Dillon headed out from the Toronto area around 3 am on the morning of Friday, October 16, 2015. Their destination? Pekin, Illinois and the Rock n’ Skull Festival. After an arduous 12-hour car ride which was filled with a steady rotation of great, mainly Rock n’ Skull bands music, a lot of laughter and the most horrible farts ever know to…
