From Big Apple To The Stage At Rock N’ Skull (Blog Story)

From Big Apple To The Stage At Rock N’ Skull (Blog Story)

1981: I was a 12-year-old kid working for a tiny neighborhood record store called Big Apple Tapes & Records. Now, when I say working for, what I mean is…I made my presence known until they asked if I wanted to do some work for the store taking inventory, stocking, creating displays to post on the walls, etc. I wouldn’t be paid but, I could have access to promotional items like posters and advance copies of…

Today is Brian‘s birthday, so that’s an excuse for a couple before noon beers no? Uncle Ron stopped by and…

JETBOY live at Rock n’ Skull (Rock n’ Skull Spotlight)

American glamsters Jetboy are one of those bands I got into during the dark years in the 1990´s when the grunge wave was at its height.

Behold ROCK n’ SKULL! Decibel Geek Returns for 2016.

Behold ROCK n’ SKULL! Decibel Geek Returns for 2016.

Let me tell you, I for one would rather attend the smaller festivals (although the bigger events can be awesome as well). Most times they are in a club or medium sized venue and are general admission. This affords much better views of the stage and overall experiences to the concert goer rather than a huge stadium and assigned seating. It’s also not unusual to find members of bands mingling with rock fans and watching their…
