Show Review to come
When I was a kid, I used to try to sneak into The Stone Pony in Jersey to hear
Southside Johnny and The Asbury Jukes. To me, they were the fucking coolest. They
were rock and roll. They had a horn section. They had guitars. They had a rhythm
section. To me, little Yonkers kid that I was, they were the biggest band in the
world, or at least they had the most people.
Look, can we talk? Back in 1983 when Motley Crue released Shout At The Devil,
nobody gave a fuck about this accident he was in where the drummer from Hanoi
Rocks-Razzle Dingley was killed. It sucked. It was a fucking tragedy-but it never
dampened the impact of the music that Motley Crue was putting out-and that is
what I mean by nobody gave a fuck.
I am 99X-never were truer fucking words spoken. The 99X shows at Stone Mountain
are the best deal in the state. Show your little freeloader card and see the
greatest, hottest, rock bands in the whole fucking world for free. One of the
greatest, hottest fucking rock groups to hit The Rock was Man Made God from
California. 99X usually starts out the shows
Neil Young played with Crazy Horse on June 11th at a venue that I absolutely love-Chastain
Park. –Chastain never fails to inspire me. I got the idea for a psychic
rock and roll magazine at Chastain during a Cranberries concert. Neil hit the
stage in his trademark baseball cap and guitar to explain Greendale. I have to
admit that the Harley microphone stands were cool, but I wanted to see Neil’s
face. –So, I hopped up the center on got down on my knees to take a shot
or two. I didn’t block any fans.
From: Atlanta, GA.
I was in the mood to try some different shit again after a fun little set by 13
Stories. Why the fuck not? I love the Music Midtown locals stage best anyway.
Those guys on the local stage are the ones you can find in Creative Loafing and
go see on a Saturday night.
Skid Row is: Johnny Solinger, vocals. Rachel Bolan, bass. Scotti Hill, guitar.
Phil Varone, drums. Dave ‘The Snake’ Sabo, guitar.
This isn’t the same Skid Row you are going to remember from the days you
were singing fucking 18 and Life at the top of your lungs. This is Skid Row for
2003, and oh my god what a fucking set they put on! The new lead singer, Johnny
Solinger, can carry Sebastian Bach’s range
The Cotton Club is a cool little venue. It holds about six hundred and makes you
feel close to whoever is on the stage. I was able to catch Billy Talent when they
opened for The Buzzcocks on July 16th. The Buzzcocks are a classic-I like them.
Everybody with a fucking brain likes them, but I went for Billy Talent. I wanted
to see this band up close and personal,
From: New Orleans.
“Cowboy Mouth is a rock and roll orgasm that dares to celebrate the fact
that we are all alive!” according to crazed drummer and lead singer Fred
Die Trying is: Jassen (vocals), Jack (guitars), Steve (bass) and Matt (drums)-They
go by their first names, nothing else matters. 99X is notorious for bringing
the hot new shit out first. 99X was the first to play Godsmack in Hotlanta-so
99X brings us Die Trying. Die Trying blasted onstage with an energy that vibrated
the crowds eyeballs.
