L.A. GUNS – Made in Milan (Album Review)

L.A. GUNS – Made in Milan (Album Review)

Introduction Ok, I am not sure if the timing of this release was a good thing or not.  I recently (by recently, I mean yesterday) received the brand new L.A. Guns’ Made In Milan live album from Frontiers Records.  The reason for the dilemma of the timing is that my own podcast, the CGCM Podcast, is a couple days away from releasing our latest episode entitled The CGCM’s Greatest Live Records Of All Time. This episode is…

L.A. GUNS/Diemonds Live! (Concert Review)

L.A. GUNS/Diemonds Live! (Concert Review)

A number of years ago, I watched as one of my all time favorite bands splintered apart in an intense and honestly ugly situation. For quite some time, years actually there was essentially 2 active versions of LA GUNS. I am not sure if they were the first band to create such a situation but they certainly weren’t the last. Great White, Queensryche and more recently Ratt have found themselves in similar situations. Some will…

Rock n’ Skull 2016: RNS vs. MRF – Pre-Party

…and we’re off! Rock n’ Skull 2016 is well under way and we’re off on a high note after the pre-party! The journey was a little rough as we departed Shawn “Animalize” Irwin‘s house in Oshawa Ontario at 2am. Roaddog The Meister probably had the worst of it. He was at the Tracii Guns show at the Rockpile Toronto on Tuesday night. Then proceeded to go basically straight to work for a 16hr day to turn…

Löve Razër, Enuff Z’Nuff, Tracii Guns (Review & Interview)

Having always wanted to see Enuff Z’Nuff and never having done so since latching on way back in 1989, I was tempted towards this show. Throw in Tracii Guns band and the temptation grew. However the thought of Toronto traffic has severely limited our desire to attend shows as we used to in the city. Then Löve Razër was added and that became the no brainer for our decision. I also hoped to finally meet…

Slave To The White Line! – Chemical Burn “Smokin Mirrors”

One of the pleasures of writing for the Decibel Geek website is the chance to discover and share new music with you. Rock is dead or so they say, but then again who the hell are “they”? Certainly the old school mentality of signing the big record deal and becoming rich and famous is a thing of the past but rock and roll lives and breathes in the hearts of the young. Truth is I…

Devil City Angels: Album Review and Interview

Devil City Angels: Album Review and Interview

Remember when rock and roll was fun? A time when bands of electric gypsies would plug in to deliver nothing but a good time in a quest to make you bang your head? I am talking about a time before the plaid-wearing depression era of the 90’s came along, ruined the party made it uncool to smile onstage? Well, Decibel Geeks, on September 18th a new album from a new band (albeit with some familiar…
