BEEZER’s Top Ten of 2018 (Top Albums 2018)

BEEZER’s Top Ten of 2018 (Top Albums 2018)

There’s no doubting that every man, woman and beast that contributes to the hallowed pages of Decibel Geek, loves their music hard, heavy, melodic and on a daily basis. Personally, I wear ear phones for around 8 hours a day while I work and then, when I sit back and relax at home with a cold beer, it’s always with a pair of throbbing speakers within earshot. If I’m not at home I’m at a…

JEREMY BEDNARSKI’s Top Ten of 2018 (Top Albums 2018)

JEREMY BEDNARSKI’s Top Ten of 2018 (Top Albums 2018)

Every year in late fall, I find myself taking care of the leaves in my yard. Whilst not my favorite chore, I use the time to also catch up on the year’s best CD releases to come up with my top ten CDs for the year. 2018 is no different and it’s been a year of two distinct music tracks for me. First are CDs that I shouldn’t or didn’t expect to like, but was…

SLASH with MYLES KENNEDY AND THE CONSPIRATORS – Living The Dream (Album Review)

SLASH with MYLES KENNEDY AND THE CONSPIRATORS – Living The Dream (Album Review)

Living the dream, one track at a time… Slash‘s output during his tenure as Guns ‘n Roses’s lead guitarist is probably my least favourite of everything he has put his name to, with the exception being the masterpiece that is Appetite for Destruction. When he released his first Slash’s Snake Pit album It’s 5 ‘O Clock Somewhere way back in 1995, I personally thought it was the best thing since sliced bread. From there, after…

ALTER BRIDGE – The Last Hero (Oct 7, 2016)

Alter Bridge is a band known for blurring the line between hard rock and heavy metal. As assets in both musical genres, the band returns with their fifth studio album, The Last Hero. The album marks a creative highpoint for the quartet, exploring styles and musical influences from throughout the band’s history. From the first notes of opener “Show Me A Leader” to the final notes of the title track “The Last Hero,” it’s clear…

AXL/DC. Rock? Or Bust?

AXL/DC.  Rock?  Or Bust?

It’s a good day for anyone who had 2016 in the “What year will Axl let Duff and Slash back in GNR and replace Brian Johnson in AC/DC” pool. Vegas has been known to take some crazy bets.  If someone came up to the counter and said, “I would like wager a 100K Axl reunites with Slash and Duff for a tour as well as replaces Brian Johnson in AC/DC in 2016.” They would gladly…

Slash-Live At The Roxy 9.25.14 (June 16, 2015)

On September 25th, 2014, shortly after the release of their World On Fire album, Slash with Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators took the stage at the legendary Roxy Theatre on Sunset Strip in West Hollywood. The atmospheric venue, steeped in rock history, gave fans a brilliant opportunity to experience the band up close as they delivered a set packed with more recent solo tracks, including several from the new album, and classics from Slash‘s earlier…

Slash Sets The World (And My Ears) On Fire

I really liked Slash’s first post Velvet Revolver solo album featuring a different singer on each track.  The only tracks I didn’t like were the two featuring Myles Kennedy.  I don’t like Myles Kennedy.  I don’t mean personally.  I don’t know the man and he’s crossed no line with me.  His voice makes me sad.  I didn’t like him in Alter Bridge but suffice it to say I was not the target audience for a…

SLASH Takes Toronto to Paradise City (Concert Review)

SLASH Takes Toronto to Paradise City (Concert Review)

Veteran rocker Slash rolled into Toronto to play at The Sound Academy Sunday, September 23, 2012.  When I had first heard about the show I had mild interest but was not chomping at the bit to go. I had not been terribly impressed with his non-Guns and Roses and Velvet Revolver work.  Finding myself with a rare Sunday night off of work. I made the spur of the moment decision to trek down to T.O. and…
