John Bush Talks With XS ROCK About Armored Saint’s Fantastic New Album “Punching The Sky”

2020 has been one hell of a year so far.  But if you’re looking for something positive to help get through the madness, Armored Saint’s latest album “Punching The Sky” is exactly what the doctor ordered. We talk with Armored Saint's lead vocalist, John Bush about their great new album, his time in Anthrax, and what he considers his greatest achievements so far. You can listen to our interview with John below or wherever you listen to your favorite podcasts, Spotify, Apple, etc.   The band has unleashed some serious metal fury with this album. With the opening track “Standing On The Shoulders Of Giants”, John Bush and company are making sure that you know this is an “in your face” kind of album.  The album covers a lot of territories lyrically including the first single “End of the Attention Span”, which laments the fact that people are in such a hurry that they can’t enjoy things thoroughly.  The thrashy “Do Wrong To None” which explores mankind’s treatment of one another and “Unfair” which adequately describes the shortness of one’s life and the feeling of loss that comes with its end. Armored Saint is on top of their game musically. ...

Interview With Don Dokken

Recently, I sat down with Don Dokken to discuss his new album, appropriately named The Lost Songs: 1978-1981.  I've been a fan of Dokken for years and I was interested to talk with Don, not only about the new album, but also about his relationship with the members of the classic lineup of Dokken including George Lynch, Jeff Pilson and Wild Mick Brown.  Don told us all about The Lost Songs album, but also about the new upcoming Dokken album which is halfway finished. Listen to the interview below as we take a journey through the history of Dokken, from the early days to current day and Don's current paralysis in his arm which prevents him from playing guitar these days:     It wasn’t always multi-platinum sales and stadium gigs for Dokken.  There was a first-phase and there were early days, and it is those bold first steps to stardom which are celebrated comprehensively on Dokken’s The Lost Songs: 1978-1981 album, out on August 28th 2020 through Silver Lining Music.   https://youtu.be/JDoUcakRC7k     Featuring spectacular sleeve art by renowned US artist Tokyo Hiro (Motörhead, Motley Crüe), The Lost Songs: 1978-1981 show the crackle and craft of a hungry young Don Dokken as he...

Former Runaways Vocalist Cherie Currie Discusses New Solo Album In New Interview

Cherie Currie is back with a new record that has been a long time coming. The album Blvds of splendor is produced by Matt Sorum and takes fans on a musical journey. The album is a mix of rock, punk, blues mixed with a few ballads. I was able to talk to Cherie Currie about the making Blvds of splendor and working with Matt Sorum.   Angel Alamo: How did you get Matt Sorum to produce Blvds of Splendor? Cherie Currie: I didn't get Matt Sorum, I was very, very lucky. He had reached out to me to sing on his wife's record, and I was in the middle of doing PR with Ken Phillips for the Runaways movie, and when I finally got back to him, of course, her recording was done. I had just been asked to open for Joan Jett at the Pacific Amphitheater in 2010, and I didn't have a band because I hadn't performed in years and years. I called Matt and of course, he said he didn't need me for the session, but I said, "Do you know anybody I could open up at Pacific Amphitheater for Joan? Haven't played in years, do you...

Desmond Child Talks About Writing Hits With KISS, Bon Jovi and More

If you bought any records from KISS, Bon Jovi, or Aerosmith and read the songwriting credits the name Desmond Child always popped up. Desmond Child has been the man behind the scenes writing hit songs such as Aerosmith “Angel”, KISS “I was made for lovin’ you, Bon Jovi “Living on a prayer”.

Interview With Groovie Mann From My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult

Just a few hours before their show, I sat down with Frankie Nardiello, A.K.A. Groovie Mann, vocalist for My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult. It was almost 30 years since I had last seen the band perform. I caught them early on in their career and have been a fan ever since. Groovie is one of the nicest rock stars you're likely to ever meet. He always stays after the shows and visits with fans and signs items. Thrill Kill Kult are veterans of the industrial, electro-rock scene and have been incredibly influential on many other bands. The band was one of the lucky few to be a part of the now-legendary Wax Trax Records! The band released a new album this year entitled "In The House Of Strange Affairs". Groovie gave me the scoop on recording this album as well as his take on the music business, touring and so much more.

Interview with Tony Campos From Static-X and Live Show Review

Often, I'm asked what it's like backstage when I get to interview the artists. Many times the artists arrive at the venue with a very limited amount of time to get the equipment set up, do soundchecks and take the stage before they have to load everything up and start the process all over again. This interview is a prime example of what it often sounds like backstage. At various parts of the interview, you can hear the roadies doing a soundcheck and believe me it's quite loud. But sometimes, that's the only place and time that the artists can squeeze in an interview. I've been a big fan of Tony's work in bands like Static-X, Fear Factory, Soulfly, Prong, Ministry and more. You'll probably never meet a more genuine, down to earth entertainer than Tony Campos. Sorry for the background noise in this one but I hope you enjoy our interview with Tony!     Listen to the interview here: Wayne Static’s Memory And Music Live On In New Static-X Concerts I’ll admit that I was very skeptical when I heard that the original members of Static-X were going to tour and perform and tour to commemorate the 20th Anniversary of...

Interview With Virus, Guitarist From Dope

I recently caught up with Virus from the band Dope on their current tour with Static-X.  I've been a longtime fan of the band and Virus' guitar work is some incredible stuff. If you've never seen the band live, definitely go check them out.  Dope has been kick ass and taking names for 20 years and they sound better than ever these days.  During our interview we discussed their tour, if their working on a new album yet and the current state of the rock music business.  Virus was a great interview and offers some great insight into what it's like to be a touring rock band in this day and age.

XS ROCK Interview With Rob Cavestany, Guitarist For Death Angel

The XS ROCK Best Metal Album Of 2019 is "Humanicide" by Death Angel.  An outstanding metal album that has to be heard to be believed and appreciated properly.

Listen to our interview with Rob here: or listen on Spotify here: https://open.spotify.com/show/4SBJAY8Pa9x3lcJpb03aYL   And check out our review of Death Angel's "Humanicide", The XS ROCK "Best Metal Album Of The Year" below! Review: Artist: Death Angel Album: Humanicide Genre: MetalLabel: Nuclear Blast Records Release Date: May 31, 2019 Reviewed by: Bobby Caughron If the new Death Angel album Humanicide was your opponent in a boxing match, you’d be pummelled into unconsciousness before you even knew what happened. This an exceptional dark, brutal outing that demands to be heard. Aggressive doesn’t even begin to cover the tone of this album. Death Angel goes straight for the kill with the opening song and title track ‘Humanicide”. If this isn’t a modern-day thrash metal masterpiece I don’t know what would be. This album is all the proof you’ll ever need to prove...

On longevity in the rock music business:"I had to kind of you know sit back and look at my whole career because it was 20 years since the first album.  You know, I'm really grateful.

Interview With John Gallagher From Raven

RAVEN are that rare thing in music,  true originals – cut these guys with a razor and they will BLEED true heavy metal - a more intense live band does not exist on this planet! Hailing from Newcastle Upon Tyne in North East England back in 1974 (yes – 44 YEARS ago!!!) the brothers Gallagher cut their teeth playing the pubs & clubs until solidifying their line up in 1980 with drummer Rob Hunter.  The trio went on to release three of the most influential metal albums of the NWOBHM (New Wave Of British Heavy Metal) on the Neat records label which in turn inspired every band of that era and beyond.  Basically,  without Raven you just would not have thrash/speed metal…. after all, the band did give Metallica & Anthrax their first tours! Following a tumultuous move to the USA, deals with Atlantic Records, indentured servitude and commercialism,  Rob left the band in 1987 to be replaced by drummer extraordinaire Joe Hasselvander, who had made his name in cult doom band Pentagram, Savoy Brown and his own solo projects, adding a new dimension to the band. Rebuilding from the Atlantic experiences,  the band capitalized on their fierce live performances...

Bon Harris Says Nitzer Ebb Have No Plans For A New Studio Album Anytime In The Near Future

As one of the founding members of the iconic EBM band Nitzer Ebb, Bon Harris is practically a legend to fans of the genre.  Nitzer Ebb has a combined output of fourteen albums and EP's since 1983.  If you ask any current electronic band who influenced them, you're sure to hear Nitzer Ebb's name mentioned.  With the band considered one of the godfathers of industrial electronic music, they've earned their place in history.  I had a chance to sit down and talk with Bon just prior to their live performance on May 20th, in Tampa Florida. Let me preface this by saying that I have a been huge fan since the album "That Total Age" was released in 1987.  Nitzer Ebb's music is part of the soundtrack of my youth. If you're a fan of the band's music, you know that it is often aggressive and dark sounding.  While that might be an appropriate description for the music, I found talking to Bon Harris to be quite the opposite.  He was quite friendly and had a sort of quiet charm with a great sense of humor.  You can read my interview below as Bon discusses new Nitzer Ebb material, the...

Interview With Marc Ferrari From Keel

Marc Ferrari. You probably know him from his work in the band Keel as well as his own bands Cold Sweat and Medicine Wheel.  But, what you probably didn't know, is you've most likely heard his work in numerous movie and TV soundtracks over the years.  I had the chance to set down and talk with Marc about the upcoming Frontiers Music Festival which Keel will perform at, as well as the 2019 KeelFest event that's happening on May 10, 2019. Keel has also just been announced as one of the bands performing at The Monsters Of Rock Cruise 2020. The first thing I noticed was Marc's trademark white streak in his hair is still there, and frankly, he doesn't look like he's aged much at all since 1985's "Right To Rock".  Marc was more than happy to share what he's been up to since Keel's last album and different business ventures along with some great memories from the wild 80's metal scene.   XS ROCK: Hey Marc! It's great to get a chance to talk to you. Thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule to talk to us. Marc: Thanks! Happy to do it.   XS ROCK: So...

Phil Lewis From L.A. Guns Discusses New Album, Reunion With Tracii Guns and More!

XS ROCK: So I’ve had a chance to listen to the new album, The Devil You Know and it's fantastic. It sounds just like what I remember from listening to the first two LA Guns albums years ago. It's kind of got that raw sort of mixture of metal with a little bit of punk in there. Is that raw edge that you've brought to the last couple of albums by design or is that just what happens when you and Tracii get together? Phil: That’s exactly what happens when me and Tracii get together. You know, no fucking around. We’re clearly making up for lost time. It came together very quickly after The Missing Peace. It came together naturally. We wrote it while we were traveling all around the world. When you're having fun, you know it’s not really work.  When you look at it and you know it was a tremendous amount of work, but is was so much fun and the end result is so fantastic and you know people like yourself who know music, appreciate what's going into it and that's a great feeling.     XS ROCK:  So tell me a little bit about recording...

Doug Aldrich Talks About Burning Rain Album, Whitesnake, Ronnie James Dio and More!

When your resume' includes playing in both legendary rock bands, Dio and Whitesnake, you know you're doing something right.  That's definitely the case with Doug Aldrich. With a long history of playing and creating incredible songs with bands like Lion, Hurricane, Bad Moon Rising, Glenn Hughes, Revolution Saints, The Dead Daisies, Burning Rain and a great solo career as well, it's no wonder Aldrich is always mentioned as one of the top guitarists in rock.  Doug just completed his fourth album with Burning rain called Face The Music.  When I sat down to discuss the new album with him, it's immediately apparent that's he's both a rock star and a real down to earth guy at the same time.  When I asked him what his greatest accomplishment was....I didn't receive the standard answer of "playing with this band" or "playing in front of over 100.000 people", but his answer was simply being a father.  Doug Aldrich is proof that you can have it all. He's a rock star, family man and all around great guy.     XS ROCK: Let me start off by saying that I'm a big fan of your work. Yesterday I had a listen to the...

XS ROCK Talks With Ron Young From Little Caesar

Do to a problem with the audio recording of my conversation with Little Caesar's vocalist Ron Young, I am forced to present a much shorter interview than was originally intended.  Ron is a great guy and tells it like he sees it.  I had a blast interviewing him and enjoyed his perspective on the rock scene, Little Caesar's past and current events.  We tried desperately to recover the rest of the audio from this interview to no avail.  And while it's a very short interview, I hope you will check it out and definitely pick up Little Caesar's newest album "Eight" It's simply spectacular! XS ROCK: Hey Ron! Thanks for talking to me today. So you've got a new album out with Little Caesar called "Eight". Tell me a little about that came together? Ron: It all came together really easily.It was really natural. We did the whole record in 22 days. We just felt like it had good energy and good flow.   XS ROCK: So you're out on tour now, right? Ron: We just got back from the U.K. this last week and we're heading back over to Europe in May. Thankfully, we're getting a lot of great...

Legendary Metal Drummer Ken Mary Talks With XS ROCK

I recently had the opportunity to sit down and talk with legendary drummer Ken Mary.  Over the years, Ken has played with some of the best bands around, including Alice Cooper, Accept, House Of Lords, Chastain, Fifth Angel and most recently Flotsam & Jetsam. I remember having conversations with my good friend Dennis over 30 years ago about how great Ken Mary's playing was. We would discuss which band members we would put into the ultimate band, much like people who play Fantasy Football.  When it came to drummers, Ken Mary's name was inevitably, always brought up.   Not only is Ken an incredible drummer, but he's also an incredibly nice guy who seems to genuinely appreciate his fans. Check out my interview with Ken to learn more about one of the true good guys of rock!   XS ROCK: So you're playing with the mighty Flotsam & Jetsam? I've heard the new album and it's really awesome. Are you out on tour now? Ken Mary:  No. We're off the road for Christmas but we'll be going back out to Europe in March. We'll be playing with Destruction and Overkill. That should be a pretty good bill. It's Italy, Germany, Belgium...

Monte Pittman Talks To XS ROCK

Recently, I had the chance to sit down backstage and talk with Monte Pittman. Monte's out on the road with Sebastian Bach and supporting not one, but two great new albums that were recently released on Metal Blade Records. If you get the opportunity to catch him live, you'll simply be blown away.  Truly a guitar virtuoso, Monte shredded through some great metal tracks that occasionally remind me of classic Metallica, yet he's also very versatile and performed some great acoustic numbers that show off his incredible talent for both playing and excellent songwriting.  Monte is a great guy to interview.  He has a lot to say about his music, the current tour, working with Madonna and recording with Metallica producer Flemming Rasmussen. Check out the audio interview below: https://soundcloud.com/user-862039125/monte-pittman-interview-with-xs-rock You can check out Monte's latest albums below:   

Ministry Guitarist Sin Quirin Discusses New Project 3 Headed Snake With XS ROCK

Ministry guitarist Sin Quirin has just released a new EP by his side project "3 Headed Snake". If you haven't had a chance to hear it yet, go check it out! It's killer classic metal in the vein of Judas Priest. Recently, I sat down with Sin and we discussed the new band, Ministry, being nominated twice for Grammy awards and his life as a rock artist. I found Sin to be an intelligent, interesting guy who doesn't necessarily follow all of the cliches' of the stereotypical rock star life. You can listen to the audio of the interview below and don't forget to check out the video by 3 Headed Snake below for a sample of the band's full on metal assault. https://soundcloud.com/user-862039125/sin-quirin-interview     https://youtu.be/VsHERp-0LTg https://www.facebook.com/pg/3HeadedSnake

Interview With Nozumu Wakai From Destinia

XS ROCK: Tell me about the latest band news? Any new projects coming out, live shows or announcements? NOZOMU: Next year on January, we will have a show in Tokyo, Japan with the original line up of “METAL SOULS”. Each member has own bands or projects, so it is a bit difficult to schedule a tour with them, but I am discussing with the Agent to make it happen. I am thinking to do a show in America, somehow, perhaps next year. My plans for the rest of this year, I will be going on a tour in Japan this summer as a backing musician for a Japanese solo artist, and also around fall I will go to Las Vegas to continue working on the album I started with Paul Shortino last year. We’ve got a lot of demos already, so I am sure it will become a good album.   https://youtu.be/xHfFY_64rFQ XS ROCK: So how long has the band been together? NOZOMU: Actually, this project ‘DESTINIA’ up to now released two albums. The first album was released in 2014, so this is the fourth year for the band. I have significantly changed a style of music this time compared...

Interview With Matt James Of Blacktop Mojo

XS ROCK: So James, let's start with you. Tell me a little about yourself. James: First of all....I'm James and I sing for Blacktop Mojo.     XS ROCK: Can you tell me a little about this current tour you're on? James: This is the second leg of our North America tour. We've been out on the road since April. We went home for about two weeks and then went back out. We just got off the road with Shaman's Harvest and then we're going to meet up with our boys in Black Stone Cherry.     XS ROCK: Correct me if I'm wrong, but you guys are working on material for a new album, right? James: We are! We've got some demos of several songs done back home and we're going to play a couple of new songs tonight at our show here in Sarasota Florida.         XS ROCK: So how long have you guys been together as a band? James: We've been together as a band since 2012. Almost six years now.     XS ROCK: Did you guys know each other before starting the band? James: I worked in a coffee shop in Palestine Texas...

Joey “Shithead” Keithley Of D.O.A. Interview

Joey "Shithead" Keithley Of D.O.A. Interview Today we're talking with Joey "Shithead" Keithley from the legendary punk band D.O.A. Along with Black Flag and Bad Brains, D.O.A. is often listed as the original founders of hardcore punk and their album Hardcore '81 appears to be the first time that the term hardcore was associated with the music. D.O.A. is preparing for their 40th anniversary as a band with a large tour and a great new album called "Fight Back". I had the opportunity to talk with Joey about the new album, touring, his political aspirations and reflect on his long career to date. Joey is a really honest and straight forward guy to interview who has a deep passion for activism. I hope you enjoy listening to our interview with the original Godfather of Hardcore Punk himself!     You can purchase Joey's book Talk - Action = 0 - An illustrated history of D.O.A. right here.                   And the great new D.O.A. album "Fight Back" right here.               http://suddendeath.com/   Canada’s legendary Punk Kings,who helped spread punk rock counterculture around the world, approach a momentous milestone.

XS ROCK Talks With Dash Cooper, Vocalist For CO-OP And Son Of Alice Cooper

    XS ROCK: Tell me about the latest band news? Any new projects coming out, live shows or announcements? Dash: The band is on the road as we speak. We are doing a Midwest run with the band FLAW and The Crowned. We are playing our 2nd show with them tonight in Joliet, Illinois. We also have our debut album being released on June 15th from David Ellefson’s EMP Label Group.   XS ROCK: How long has CO-OP been together? Dash: The band formed in 2014 in Phoenix, Arizona.   XS ROCK: Obviously your dad, Alice Cooper is a living legend in the rock world, what was your main motivation for starting or being in a band? Dash: I’ve always loved music. My parents raised me on some great tunes and I’ve always had a urge to sing along with songs. I guess it started at a young age when I would try to mimic my favorite band and singers. I just naturally progressed to the next step of moving forward in music by starting a jam band with my friends in high school called Runaway Phoenix. We played for a bunch of years but then I really wanted to take it seriously and...

Interview With Legendary Mountain Drummer Corky Laing

Known as “The Supergroup That Never Was,” Corky Laing’s POMPEII recorded The Secret Sessions between 1976 and 1978 after a re-introduction to old friend Ian Hunter via Steve Wax of Elektra / Asylum. Laing recalls, “The late 70s was a turbulent time as the musical taste went through a generational change. Punk was just beginning to surface in the rock landscape. It replaced the increasingly complacent era of glam and classic rock with a new confrontational and rebellious attitude. Bands like Mountain and Mott the Hoople were becoming oldsters. In this environment, my record company Elektra/Asylum was preparing to bail on me, but before doing so, they asked if I wanted to form a so called “supergroup”. I had no choice, and so began the journey into The Secret Sessions. Steve Wax, the president of E/A hooked me up with an old mate, Ian Hunter to begin the work. Bob Ezrin was brought in to produce and together we proceeded to invite our famous friends to the Briarcliff Studios in Westchester, NY to see if we could put something interesting together.” Before long Laing and Ezrin had assembled a cast that included Free’s Andy Fraser, the Alice Cooper Band’s Steve...

Interview With Patrick Stone From Budderside

Recently, I had the chance to catch up with Patrick Stone, lead vocalist for Budderside. I spoke with him just before he was going on stage to perform as the opener for L.A. Guns on their latest tour. He invited me me into the Budderside bus where everyone was preparing for the show. The really interesting thing about Patrick, is that when you meet him, he's a super gracious and humble guy. None of the better-than-you kind of rock star attitude, but just a real down to earth genuine guy who loves rock n' roll. We talked at length about many subjects and the entire band are really a great bunch of guys. Have no doubt though, you'll see the rock star emerge the second he hits the stage. Budderside puts on one hell of a great show. Check out my interview below as he talks about working with some of the legends of hard rock, his inspirations and hope for the future:   XS ROCK: So, tell me about the latest with Budderside? You guys are on tour with L.A. Guns right now. How long is the tour? Patrick/Budderside: We are fresh off the Monsters Of Rock Cruise and are having...

XS ROCK Interview With Geoff Tate

Geoff Tate seems to be sort of an enigmatic person for a lot of people. Always a bit mysterious and probably often misunderstood. Prior to meeting Geoff for the first time, I wasn't exactly sure what to expect. I have been a longtime fan of his work, first in Queensryche and now on his own. Geoff has just finished his latest album under the Operation: Mindcrime moniker, The New Reality, which is set for release on December 1st through Frontiers Music. I was pleasantly surprised to find that Geoff is a very friendly, intelligent and articulate guy that has a tremendous amount of respect for his fans, the press and other performers. During our interview, I found him to be humble, honest and quite interesting to speak with. I hope you will enjoy reading the interview as much as I enjoyed doing it. Bobby Caughron Senior Editor XS ROCK XS ROCK: So, I really like the latest and final chapter in the Operation: Mindcrime trilogy, The New Reality. To me, it seems much closer to the classic Queensryche sound that you helped create. Was that by design? It almost seems like, in many ways that on the first two albums, you...

Michael Sweet Talks With XS ROCK

Michael Sweet (Stryper) and George Lynch (Dokken, Lynch Mob)  have reunited once again to create Unified, the second album by Sweet & Lynch. I had the chance to sit down and talk with Michael Sweet about the new album, working with George Lynch, life in rock n' roll and of course....Stryper. I found Michael to be very humble and appreciative for the long career in rock music that he has had to date. Although he has millions of fans of his own, it's interesting to hear him talk about Van Halen from his view as a fan. Unified by Sweet & Lynch comes out on November 10th. I've had a chance to hear the album and I've got to say it's simply incredible. The collaboration of these musicians makes for an excellent hard rock album that simply can't be missed. XS ROCK: So this is your second album working with George Lynch. Was this album a little easier to put together than the first one, since you had worked together before? Michael: You know what? It was a little easier. I feel like it was more thought out. George sent me more complete music ideas, if not complete for most...

Interview With Legendary Drummer Carmine Appice

Carmine Appice is a legend in the world of rock drummers. Over the years he has played with a virtual who's who list of artists including Ozzy Osbourne, Rod Stewart, King Kobra, Blue Murder, Vanilla Fudge, Cactus, Pink Floyd, Michael Schenker, Jeff Beck and the list goes on. Recently, I had the chance to talk with Carmine about his new project, simply called "Appice" that features not only Carmine, but his brother Vinny as well.  Dual drummers playing together throughout the album with guest appearances by performers from bands such as Whitesnake, Bulletboys, Dio, Warrant, W.A.S.P., MSG, Guns N' Roses and more.   XS ROCK: Hey Carmine. Great to talk with you today. I've had a chance to listen to the Appice album that you just finished with you and your brother Vinny Appice. So fill me in on how recording this record came about. Carmine: Well, we've been doing this show Drum Wars for many years now. It's always been a lot of fun working together. We got a new manager last year and far as booking goes, our manager thought it would help with getting new gigs and it'd be a lot of fun for us to do...

Interview With Chris Jericho WWE Superstar & Vocalist For Fozzy

Today I sat down with Chris Jericho. Pro wrestler, rock singer, writer, podcaster and the list goes on and on. Chris is a multi-talented guy and was great to interview. We talked about his latest album, Judas by his band "Fozzy", which is spectacular, by the way. We also talked about a few heavy subjects like terrorism, politics, religion and world chaos. Check out the interview below as Chris updates XS ROCK on his latest happenings. XS ROCK: So let's start out by finding out the answer to a question that I've wondered about for a while. Why the hell did you decide to call your band Fozzy? Chris: Yeah man, It's funny. The thing with Fozzy is it's the easiest band name to chant ever. In a world where there's a Def Leppard, a Duran Duran and Red Hot Chili Peppers, Metallica and KISS. All of those bands names are just part of the lexicon, but if you think of those band names and just the name alone, they're dumb names. Def Leppard? Okay, so that's like my band is named Sick Cougar. Or I'm going to put together a band called Hugg like Kiss or like Korn, only...

XS ROCK Interview With Quiet Riot’s Frankie Banali

XS ROCK: So, Quiet Riot now has James Durbin as lead vocalist. I've had a chance to listen to Road Rage and I think it's going to surprise a lot of people. I was surprised that he was able to remind me of Kevin DuBrow's sound and style while still sounding like himself. Frankie: Yeah. One of the reasons that I wanted to bring James into the band was that I had to be conscious of two things, one...whoever might be singing in Quiet Riot would have to have an amazing range because Kevin had a ridiculous range. He could sing all of the high stuff, he could sing all of the low growly stuff and everything in between. I needed to find someone that had that kind of a range for the old material live, which is something that James could easily handle. But, at the same time I didn't want to get a Kevin clone. I wanted someone that reminded people of Kevin's vocal style and range but at the same time brings something of their own self to the table, because ultimately I think it's a win-win situation. It's a win situation for Quiet Riot because it's similar...

XS ROCK Interview With Buckcherry Vocalist Josh Todd

Recently, I received an advanced release for Josh Todd & The Conflict's debut album, "Year Of The Tiger". Most of you probably know Josh and guitarist Stevie D from the band Buckcherry. Buckcherry is still alive and well, but I've got to tell you, Josh Todd & The Conflict are the real deal. This band stretches the boundaries of rock and have created a sound that's aggressive, energetic, and fresh sounding. I spoke with Josh about the new band,  his thoughts on the current state of rock n' roll and of course, Buckcherry. I had a lot of fun doing this interview. For someone who's been in the music business for twenty plus years, he was incredibly humble, genuinely honest and really passionate about creating music as an art form.  XS ROCK: How did Josh Todd & The Conflict come about? Josh: It kind of came about last year. Stevie D, who is my songwriting partner in The Conflict, longtime friend. He's known me since I was 19. He also plays guitar in Buckcherry. Anyways, we were out on the road with Buckcherry last year and at first I wanted to find someone who could make me beats. Anyway, he...

Interview With Warrant’s Robert Mason

XS ROCK: Hey Robert! It's a pleasure to talk with you. I've been a fan for many years. I want to talk about the new Warrant album in a moment, but first, let's go back to the beginning for a minute. Tell me about your first major label appearance. Robert: I was signed to a record deal in the late 80's early 90's to Epic/Sony. That ended up being one of those things that fell to the wayside. The President of A & R that signed you changes jobs and you get shelved. And then in 1991 I joined Lynch Mob. I did an album and a tour and almost another album with them. We supported Warrant in arenas and that's where I became friends with the band. Isn't life funny. And then, I was Ozzy's background vocalist for '95-'96 for a whole year on the road, under the radar, behind the curtain. No one knew about it. I left Ozzy prematurely, to do a record with Cry Of Love called Diamonds and Debris. I'm fiercely proud of the Cry Of Love record. But, it came out at kind of a weird time and Columbia Records just didn't know where...

Interview With Kobra Paige Of Kobra And The Lotus

     Without a doubt, one of the best metal bands to hit the scene in the last ten years has to be Kobra and the Lotus. If you've never heard them, stop reading this now and go to iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, Spotify or the KATL Official site and check them out. I'm positive after hearing them, you'll want to come back and read this interview, so we'll wait for you here while you prepare to be blown away. If you're one of the countless numbers of fans that they've picked up over the years, then you already know exactly what I'm talking about. The band is releasing the first part of a two part album entitled Prevail on May 12th and it's simply incredible. KATL is one of the hardest working bands out there. I recently had the chance to sit down with lead vocalist, Kobra Paige and discuss the new album. Not only was she was great to interview, but I also enjoyed her true passion for music that comes through in everything she does. Check out what she has to say about the new album, her influences and how she feels about being considered a sex...

Interview With Former Sister Sin Vocalist Liv Jagrell

    In my opinion, one of the best metal bands to come out after the year 2000 had to be Sister Sin. Each album seem to be better than the one before it as the band continued to release quality album after album. But, alas, some things are not meant to last forever and Sister Sin split up after the final album. "Black Lotus" was released. I was really devastated by this news, because they seem to be a band with a real fire and passion for metal. However, former lead vocalist Liv Jagrell has continued on with her new band, simply entitled Liv Sin. I was simply blown away when I heard the songs on the upcoming, new album "Follow Me". I had the chance to sit down with Liv and discuss the new album. She has such a great passion for rock n' roll and was an absolute blast to interview. XS ROCK: Well, let me start off by saying that I'm a huge fan of your work in your former band "Sister Sin" and I recently had the chance to listen to your new upcoming album, Follow Me for your brand new band Liv Sin. The new...

Interview With Ex-Guns N’ Roses and Art Of Anarchy Guitarist Bumblefoot

Recently, I reviewed the latest album by Art of Anarchy called "The Madness". Which you can read here.  Needless to say I was blown away by it. When I got the chance to interview guitarist Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal, I was thrilled. After talking with him, it was easy to see that's he's one of the nicest guys you could ever meet. He carefully answered every question that I asked, with not only great attention to detail, but a sort of real honesty that's not often evident during a casual interview with many artists. Art of Anarchy is the definition of a super group. The band featuring Scott Stapp of Creed on vocals, John Moyer of Disturbed on bass, Bumblefoot ( Ex Guns N' Roses) on guitar and twin brothers, Jon and Vince Votta. My interview with Bumblefoot is easily one of the best that I've done for XS ROCK. We discussed many things including previous Art of Anarchy vocalist Scott Weiland, his thoughts on Axl Rose and the making of "The Madness" album. XS ROCK: So there's a lot of different personalities at play in a band like Art of Anarchy. I mean you guys are all stars in your own...

Interview With Alex Grossi From Beautiful Creatures and Quiet Riot

Today I had the privilege to sit down and talk with Alex Grossi. Most of you probably know Alex as the guitarist in Quiet Riot. But Alex is quite the journeyman of rock n' roll and always seems to have a musical project going. Beautiful Creatures also features Alex on guitar along with Joe Leste (Bang Tango) on vocals, Kenny Kweens (Former L.A. Guns), Anthony Focx on guitar, and Timmy Russell on drums. The band have just released a really great re-mastered version of the album "Deuce" and included bonus tracks as well as their first newly recorded track in 13 years. I spoke with Alex about Beautiful Creatures, Quiet Riot, QR's new vocalist James Durbin and another great side project that Alex has with Dizzy Reed from Guns N' Roses, called simply Hookers & Blow. Alex was simply a blast to interview. Check it out. XS ROCK: So I was excited to hear about the release of the re-mastered deluxe edition of  The Beautiful Creatures Deuce album. Alex: So was I. XS ROCK: So tell me a little about it. How did it come about? Alex: Well, It's actually a long and a short story. Last September-October, Quiet Riot was...

Interview With Night Ranger’s Jack Blades

Jack Blades Talks To XS ROCK About New Night Ranger Album, His Career and More... Rewind back to the year 1982. I was in middle school and I had gotten a part time job so that I could buy my first stereo. I picked up the stereo and bought two albums at the same time. One of them was Cheap Trick's One On One and the other was Night Ranger's debut album, Dawn Patrol. The airwaves were buzzing with their new song "Don't Tell Me You Love Me" and MTV was airing it regularly. Believe it or not, MTV actually played music videos in those days. I played those two albums over and over until I knew them forwards and backwards. I was convinced that I was going to join a rock band and be a superstar one day. Okay, so maybe I missed the mark a little on that one, I didn't really have the talent to make it in a band, but I am still involved in what I really love, and that's enjoying and spreading the word about great rock music. Night Ranger has sold well over 10 million albums now and became a household name with...

Interview With David Reece

XS Rock readers know that I've recently been raving about the debut album by Sainted Sinners featuring David Reece (Accept, Bonfire, Bangalore Choir). Well, today I had the chance to talk with him about his new band, his past work and his influences as well as what the future might hold. He's a really great guy who appreciates his fans and is truly grateful for the opportunities that he has been given to him to do what he does best, be a singer in a rock n 'roll band. You can check out my review of the new Sainted Sinners album here. But first, read on to see what David has to say....   XS ROCK: So I guess my first question is what happened with Bonfire? It seemed like you were a good fit for the band? David:  You know, I was just miserable dude. I was really unhappy working with Hans Ziller. Our relationship started off really strong when we were doing the EZ Livin' thing in 2014. He hired a manager who I really dislike and he basically put that guy in control. He got between us, the same old stupid story, and gradually the relationship deteriorated. And I...

Interview With Jack Russell

XS ROCK: So tell me about your great new album "He Saw It Comin". I just did a review on it recently and in my opinion, it's some of the best material that you've ever done. Does the title reference your exit from Great White several years ago? Jack: No. Actually, when I was six years old, I knew that I wanted to be a rock singer. When I was five, I was really interested in dinosaurs and archaeology. I wanted to be an archaeologist and dig up ancient remains, rocks and so forth, but on my sixth birthday, my parents bought me a record player. I still remember what it looks like to this day, really vividly.  My parents bought me the Beatles album Help! I remember taking it out of the record sleeve and seeing it was Capitol Records with the rainbow design and it was funny, because I eventually ended up on Capitol. So, I put the record on and the next thing I know, I had this, like God experience, an epiphany I guess, but I hate that word. It was like this overwhelming feeling that at six years old, it really freaks it you out because...

Interview With Stephen Pearcy From Ratt

When I was in high school, I had the walls of my room covered with posters and magazine pages from my favorite bands. No one got more space on those walls than my favorite band, Ratt. When "Out Of The Cellar" came out I was simply blown away. Lead singer, Stephen Pearcy was charismatic. The essence of coolness. All of the girls wanted Pearcy and all of the guys wanted to trade places with him because of that fact. Fast forward to 2017. 33 years have passed since "Out Of The Cellar" came out. After sitting down to interview my teenage rock idol, I can say that Stephen Pearcy is still the essence of coolness. Stephen has a new solo album called "Smash" that's coming out on January 27th. It's a great record that any fan of Ratt or Stephen's solo work will absolutely want to pick up. We had a chance to talk about the new record, the music biz and of course all things Ratt!   XS ROCK: I can't say enough good things about your new "Smash" record. It's an incredible album. Most of your solo albums have been released under your own record label of Top Fuel...

Udo Dirkschneider Says He Will Never Reunite With Accept

When it comes to metal's greatest anthems, Accept's Balls To The Wall is always listed as one of the top songs. And, with good reason. From the opening chords, you immediately recognize it, your head begins to start rocking in the headbanging motion and your hand can't help but form in the metal horns position.  The architect of this song and many other great Accept songs in none other than Udo Dirkschneider. I had the chance to talk with him at length about his time in Accept, his solo band U.D.O. and many other topics. I found him to be a really warm and genuine person with a great sense of humor. So, check out my interview below where you can find out how he feels about his replacement in Accept and among other things, a funny conversation about what type of underwear he wears (or doesn't). XS ROCK: Your new live album Back To The Roots is fantastic! So what comes next for you? Is there a new studio album on the horizon? Udo: Oh, yeah. As soon as we finish the tour of Canada, we will start working on the new album at the beginning of March.   XS...

Interview With Legendary Drummer Deen Castronovo

Recently, I had the chance to talk with Deen Castronovo. A man with a music resume' as long as my arm. You know his work from bands and playing with artists like Bad English, Ozzy Osbourne, Steve Vai, Paul Rodgers, Jason Becker, Marty Friedman,Tony MacAlpine, Wild Dogs, Hardline, G/Z/R, Fear Factory and of course the legendary rock band "Journey",  with which he performed for 17 years.  Many of you also know that Deen was arrested on June 14th, 2015 and faced some really serious legal charges. Before you read the following interview, I want you to do me a favor. I want you to take just a moment and reflect on the fact that we've all made mistakes in our own lives. Some big and some small, but we all have things that we regret in our past. Substance abuse is a very real problem and we've seen many rock stars over the years succumb to it. Most recently, Prince and Scott Weiland among others. Luckily, Deen Castronovo is still alive. One thing that I think the press often does wrong, is when a sensational news story hits that involves a celebrity hitting rock bottom, getting arrested or getting into legal...
