Quiet Riot’s Road Rage

Quiet Riot has a total of 13 studio albums.  The first being 1977’s “Quiet Riot I”, and the most recent being 2017’s “Road Rage”.  The  majority of that output in that 40 years was with their most well known vocalist, Kevin DuBrow.  But DuBrow died in late 2007, and at the time, was thought to […]

Snakecharmer Second Skin

Back on December 2012, I wrote about the then pending release of the first Snakecharmer album.  At the time I rather liked it, but in the few years that have passed since I wrote that, I’ve come to bloody love the album.  The first Snakecharmer album is for me one of my favorite albums released […]

Deep Purple – Perfect Strangers Live

Those who know this site know my affinity for the whole history of the band.  Back in 1983, I was really into the Born Again album, and while I read before it came out that it might be a single album/project tour, I kept hoping we’d get another album from them in 1984.  That didn’t […]

Snakecharmer Review

I live in the United States, and given my age, I was a “musical child of the 80’s”.  I was 15 in 1980, and music of that era is what dominated my rock listening style.   Like a lot of Americans, I was introduced to Whitesnake through the Slide it In album, and that crystallized […]


Next month we will be getting an album of new material from Snakecharmer (that’s also the album’s name), a band made up of some former Whitesnake members (Micky Moody & Neil Murray), as well as a Black Sabbath connection (Neil again, and Adam Wakeman).   I should have some more promotional material available shortly, but […]

Some Free Tunes

Today I was browsing the free music section over at Amazon.com’s store, and ran across an album that got my attention. It was a sampler from Eagle Records music. While there’s no directly relevant music on it (read Black Sabbath), there are some related tunes you should check out. They are: Rapture of the Deep […]

Halestorm Interview with Lzzy Hale

The next in our video series from the Atlantic City gig is tonight, on the opener, Halestorm. For most of the US tour that just concluded, the opening band was Coheed & Cambria. Except for the final date. The last date (August 29th) in Atlantic City, the opener was a band called Halestorm. To be […]

A couple of years ago, the most excellent album "The Cage" by Dario Mollo & Tony Martin came out. Those who have heard it have had nothing but praise for it. Tony Martin had told me a few months ago that he had laid down tracks for a Cage II CD, so yesterday I inquired […]
