TOKYO MOTOR FIST – Tokyo Motor Fist (Album Review)

TOKYO MOTOR FIST – Tokyo Motor Fist (Album Review)

Is this a “supergroup” by definition? Sure why not utilize such hyperbole. I prefer to think of Tokyo Motor Fist as a coming together of like-minded musicians with a knack for hard rockin’ melodies. Comprised of Steve Brown from Trixter on guitar, Ted Poley of Danger Danger on vocals and a couple of fairly well-known and long-serving rhythm duos Greg Smith on bass and Chuck Burgi on drums both having served time with the likes…

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

The Meister’s 2015 M3 Experience: Day #1-Friday May 1, 2015 At Merriweather Post Pavilion Well, The Meister has once again landed back in Toronto but with a huge dejavu this time around, seems like only last week I was landing at Toronto’s Pearson Airport after a rockin’ holiday. Oh, that’s right I actually was as I returned from my fourth MORC and then promptly headed out again to my second M3. The dull underwater like…
