Another great track played was ” Sound The Alarm ” and includes Tommy Shaw’s thought provoking lyrics and vocalization and is a chilling song with a great message . The title track of ” Crash of The Crown ” went over huge with the crowd as it seemed almost like a standing ovation for ” JY ” and the rest of the band !

The rest of the set included some of the Styx staples such as ” Come Sail Away “, ” Fooling Yourself ” and ” Too Much Time ” . The encores blew the roof off of the place when ” Mr. Roboto ” and ” Renegade ” of which the crowd was deafening .The band playing tonight was Tommy Shaw, James Young,Ricky Phillips,Lawrence Gowan, Todd Sucherman and Will Evankovich .Not to missed was the Styx charity ” Rock To The Rescue ” for which they raffle off a signed guitar and proceeds go the a local charity and this time is was the local Amvets .To find out all things Styx check out the official website at

Spotlight Release -RICHRATH PROJECT 3:13-L.A is Mine

Please follow and like us:

This pleasant surprise came across our email earlier this week and to be honest I was clueless to what I was listing to . I was tired and hot and did not feel like reading the email information and I figured I would listen to an advance copy with a coffee and then write up some pretty words to make myself seem interesting .

I was wrong and then I found out why , damn can karma teach an old dog new tricks . What I had here was some of the last hidden recordings of Gary Ricrath ( the guy behind REO Speedwagon amazing guitar work )I sat in my office with my earphones on as the music played ( still oblivious ) and stupidly said this to myself ” great another band trying to rip off the classic sounds of the 70’s and 80’s ” Little did I know that Gary Ricrath was a major creator to those sounds and I was listing to him playing .Once I got done with the release I opened up the emails and files and dug in for more info and here is what I found !

RICHRATH PROJECT 3:13, takes you back to the beginnings of REO SPEEDWAGON, and tells the story of GARY RICHRATH via his music up to his passing and beyond – over the course of a two hour performance including a multimedia show that documents Gary and Michael’s history. The show also includes some of Michael’s awesome new original songs performed by the newest version of Richrath Project 3:13 with a group of very talented musicians, including Dennis Pockets on lead guitar, Scott Weber on keyboards, Doug Janssen on bass and Andy Crownover on drums.

Michael: “We are anxious for our fans to hear the original tunes I have written. Just like Gary had taught me all those years ago, I tried to write songs about things that mean something to me, and I believe that comes through in all the lyrics of the new songs. We feel they turned out just dynamite. We’re looking forward to seeing the reaction to our first music video as well. As far as the future, we already have songs for the second Richrath Project 3:13 album, plan on touring the country like crazy and entertaining our fans for years to come!”

The weather was perfect after the crazy weather of the summer and the venue of Mentor Amphitheater is a perfect place to hear and watch a show . A show is exactly what this one was, which to a crowd of almost 7000 brought back memories of the big hair days and lots of fun .

The night started with the track ” Gotta let Go ” and continued for almost two hours .Her hits such ” Kiss Me Deadly ” and ” Close My Eyes Forever ” really delighted the crowd . Her versions of ” The Bitch Is Back “, ” Only Women Bleed ” and ” Black Leather ” surprised us but in a good way .

One of my favorite songs is ” Cherry Bomb ” from her old The Runaways days .( I even love the movie )

Lita is so popular still that a little girl in the audience was named after her by her father and it was very cute to see .

Lita’s band is as follows Patrick Kennison on guitars , Bobby Rock on Drums and Marty O’ Brien on bass guitar .

Live Review- Faster Pussycat, Enuff Z Nuff & Bonneville

Please follow and like us:

Sharpsville , Pennsylvania – Live music is back unmasked and Thelma’s Sports Nook had the three prong attack last week with hit after hit and enough music to satisfy the most ardent of fans.

Up first was local opener Bonneville but judging talent by the time slot is a major mistake in music and one you should never do . Playing some classic rock to the delight of fans along with an original of vocalist Paul Skowron former band White Noise ( Party In The Rust) you can see why this artist was signed to Atco records with his band Noisy Mama back in the day. The guitar work was done to perfection by former Celtic Frost guitarist Ron Marks who brings a nice rock and metal edge to the music . The drums and bass were played to perfection by Paul Guzman ( bass ) and Mark Munyon ( drums )

Not to be outdone Chip Znuff and The rest of Enuff Z Nuff hit the stage with a fury. I saw them last when they were on tour with Tom Keifer and to say they were amazing is an understatement .I was looking forward to the hits and almost hits and just damn good songs . The melodies and music just blended into a nice smoothie for the ears . On a side note Chip is one amazing bass player, almost lead bass player if you can image that as well as sings at the same time. New Thing is still my favorite song by the them but the new songs are really starting to over take the spot on my playlist . The rest of the band consists of Tory Stoffregen: Guitar, Tony Fennell: Guitar,Dan Hill: Drums

Up next and being prepared to dominate the stage is headliner Faster Pussycat, fresh off the release of their new single NOLA ( a totally rockin song by the way ) .This is the fresh and vitalized Faster Pussycat with over two years of clean living which makes you feel like its 1989 again and the Sunset Strip is alive again . The stage was packed and the temperature and the band were hot as molten lava as a well oiled machine gun blasting your senses . The line up is tight and contains Taime Downe - lead vocals ,Xristian Simon - guitar ,Sam "Bam" Koltun - guitar ,Danny Nordahl - bass ,Chad Stewart - drums,

Playing all the hits the band was an unstoppable force , this is something we all needed , to get out of the house and enjoy being alive again , you , me ,the band , everyone . Until next time see you at the show !

GEMINI SYNDROME Announces Summer Tour and Festival Appearances

Please follow and like us:

Los Angeles alternative metal band GEMINI SYNDROME has announced that after a lengthy, multi-year absence from touring that they will be returning to the road this summer, joined by A Killer’s Confession, Ovtlier and Pushing Veronica, with Eva Under Fire also on a select number of shows.

“We’re very excited to get back on the road this summer with some great friends,” says vocalist Aaron Nordstrom. “After all that the world has been through, it will be nice to be part of the communion of synners once again. See you all soon!”

Drummer Brian Steele Medina continues, “It’s great to get back out and visit with our brothers and sisters again. Now more than ever we could all use music and human contact to balance out the pandemic, murder hornets & Pentagon UFO videos.”

VIP packages are available for all shows at

GEMINI SYNDROME is touring in support of their recently released singles “Die With Me,” “IDK,” “Reintegration” and their forthcoming new studio album. “Die With Me” is currently #35 on the national Active Rock radio charts and Top 20 at Sirus/XM’s Octane. Watch the music video HERE and purchase/stream the track HERE.

“23, Shakespeare, The divine wedding of yin and yang… ‘Die With Me’ is an invitation for the listener to come along on the journey of self-discovery with us, which ultimately leads to the death of the lower self and the resurrection of the higher self,” says Nordstrom. “Lao Tzu said, ‘The one created the two, the two created the three, and then came the 10,000 things.’ 2 and 3 respectively correspond to the male and female energies. 2 being a single line and 3 being a triangle or vessel. Therefore 23 signifies the merging of the seemingly opposite energies of male and female.”

Drummer Brian Steele Medina adds, “In our life we have many deaths, and many reincarnations, and these experiences transform us into a more complete version of our true self… Though while we’re going through it, it’s often uncomfortable, painful, and we tend to avoid these spiritual growth spurts because we’re more comfortable sitting in our pain and shit, than walking through it. So, after we’ve walked through enough of these challenges, we might seek out that person, or tribe whose combined experience could help each other traverse that path to transmutation.”

“Our video for ‘Die With Me’ is designed for the watcher to be exposed to certain signs and symbols and evoke a spiritual experience. It depicts a young initiate performing a ritual at her sacred altar. The blindfold symbolizes that her quest for truth must begin within. She contemplates time, and she laments death and learns that time is an illusion. She scribes the language of her heart as she cries out to the Universe, (Uni-Verse = The One Song.) And we’re all dead, so that’s cool too.”

Nordstrom says, “The video for ‘Die With Me’ shows a different side of death than we’ve shown before. Even though we’re all fatally wounded in some way, we’re still performing and extending our invitation. Maybe the girl is performing a ritual to help our souls cross the river styx? Or to keep us animated in our now, dead state.”

“Die With Me” sets the stage for the band’s third album, scheduled for release later this year via Century Media. GEMINI SYNDROME spent the better part of 2018-2019 writing the final installment of their long-planned trilogy. They retreated to Brian Steele Medina’s Las Vegas home studio, where they meticulously crafted song after song, relentlessly reworking and rearranging the musical arrangements until they were fully satisfied. After an exhaustive writing process, GEMINI SYNDROME relocated to Good Sounds Studio ion Tempe, AZ, where producer Matt Good would help realize the collection of songs. Medina recalls, “We absolutely loved working with Matt and he completely understood where we wanted to take this album creatively and what it was going to take to bring the third chapter of this trilogy to light. Our actual collective blood, sweat and tears went into its creation.”

“Die With Me” follows the release of “IDK” and “Reintegration” and is the band’s first new music since the release of their sophomore album Memento Mori (2016), which hit #1 on Billboard Heatseakers Chart and spawned five singles “Eternity,” “Anonymous,” “Alive Inside,” “Sorry Not Sorry” and “Remember We Die.”

One of heavy metal’s all-time greats, Judas Priest, will finally get the opportunity to celebrate their 50th anniversary this year with the launch of a North American tour this fall. The 50 Heavy Metal Years Tour will also feature Sabaton as openers and is being fueled by the highest charting album of Priest’s career, ‘Firepower,’ which peaked at #5 on the Billboard 200.

Produced by Live Nation, the North American tour – which will run throughout September (kicking off on September 8th in Reading, PA) and November (concluding on November 5th in Hamilton, Ontario), will feature a variety of special effects, which will undoubtedly enhance the might of Priest’s metal.

Rob and Andy on stage

Tickets for the newly announced dates will go on sale beginning this Friday, June 11th at 10am local time at

Tickets for the previously announced tour dates are available now.

“Defending the heavy metal faith for fifty years, the Priest is back!” – Rob Halford

“Time to don the leather and studs and roll out the Priest Machine – celebrating our 50 Heavy Metal Years!!” – Glenn Tipton

“After the horrific year of restrictions we’ve all had to endure, what better place to break free, than the land of the free – the USA!” – Ian Hill

Judas Priest originally formed in 1970 in Birmingham, England (an area that many feel birthed heavy metal). The original nucleus of musicians would go on to change the face of heavy metal. Throughout the 70’s Priest were responsible for helping trail blaze metal with such classic offerings as ‘Sad Wings of Destiny’ (1976) ‘Sin After Sin’ (1977) and ‘Hell Bent for Leather’ (1978) as well as one of the genre’s top live recordings ‘Unleashed in the East’ (1979) among others.

It was during the 80’s that Priest conquered the world, becoming a global arena headliner on the strength of such all-time classics as ‘British Steel’ (1980) and ‘Screaming for Vengeance’ (1982), as well as being one of the first metal bands to be embraced by the then-burgeoning MTV, plus performing at some of the decades biggest concerts (1980’s Monsters of Rock, 1983’s US Festival, and 1985’s Live Aid) and being the first to exclusively wear leather and studs – a look that began during this era and would eventually be embraced by metal heads throughout the world. Priest’s success continued throughout the 90’s and beyond with the addition of drummer Scott Travis, as evidenced by such additional stellar offerings as ‘Painkiller’ (1990) ‘Angel of Retribution’ (2005) and ‘A Touch of Evil: Live’ (2009) the latter of which saw Priest win a Grammy Award for a killer rendition of the classic ‘Dissident Aggressor’.

In 2011 new guitarist Richie Faulkner came in to replace the previous guitarist who had left in 2010 – the move seemed to have reinvigorated the band, as evidenced by a show-stealing performance on the ‘American Idol’ TV program that also served as Faulkner’s debut performance with the band (also in 2011 was the release of a new compilation ‘The Chosen Few’ which included Priest classics selected by some of metal’s biggest names) and the ‘Epitaph’ concert DVD in 2013.

Priest’s next studio effort would arrive in 2014 ‘Redeemer of Souls’ which was supported by another strong tour. In 2017 (and again in 2019) Judas Priest received a nomination for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and got ready to unleash their latest studio album ‘Firepower’ (produced by Andy Sneap and Tom Allom) which received global success and critical acclaim. In 2020, a fully official and authorized photographic book, ‘Judas Priest: 50 Heavy Metal Years,’ was issued.

Few rock or metal acts remain as much of a must-see live attraction as Judas Priest. Having been forced off the road for over a year, Priest will soon make a most-welcomed return to metalheads coast to coast, with the 50 Heavy Metal Years Tour.

Legendary 80’s icon, Tiffany, has just released her new single “Hey Baby” which is taken from her forthcoming album, ‘Shadows’. Tiffany says about the new single, “Hey Baby is a little wink to the retro 80’s punk flare with the modern production of today.
