Dirty Rocker Boys, Bobbie Brown
Dirty Rocker Boys
Simon and Schuster
Bobbie Brown has
written a tell all auto biography and it is a damn good read. Sure, it is
filled with sex and drugs and rock and roll decadence but beneath the grime and
the smeared mascara is a woman who has seen it all and lived to tell about it.
Ultimately the book reveals the story of a small town girl lost in the make
believe world of LA. But to her credit Bobbie Brown emerges from the wreckage
of her life, a mom, a friend, a good natured person who despite numerous
setbacks and self immolation, has risen above the dirty streets to shine.
Dirty Rocker boys
is a classic tale of what not to do and a roadmap of who's who in rock and roll
to date and stay away from. From Tommy Lee to Leonardo Decaprio and Kevin
Costner to Jani Lane, Bobbie has been there and done that. After this was the
height of the decadent 80's. The drugs, the meth, the addiction, the abusive
lifestyle, it's all here. Her book is a
testament to her street smarts and her perseverance. I found it too hard to put
down. Some parts, like the black magic spell against Matthew Gunner, seem
almost comical and unreal. Other parts, like the day she learned Jani Lane was
dead, haunt you in their honesty. The pages are filled with raw emotion.
This book is well written and a finely tuned
record of those crazy 80's nights and a Hollywood daze some of which even
Bobbie can't recall. Pick this one up. Read it and learn how excess and those
hollywood nights can quickly dissolve into a depressive, meth colored haze. We are drawn to her story of excess and
failure, heartbreak, divorce, and even the death of her ex husband Jani Lane.
But it is her strength that you will leave the book with. Strength to pick
herself up and keep moving forward. You get a certain smile when you read the
pages. You begin to see her develop from wide eyed drugged out model to an
older, wiser, stronger woman.
"She's my cherry pie" indeed....
CRY OF THE WOLF MAGAZINE Interview With FRANKIE BANALI Of QUIET RIOT
QUIET RIOT was not the first band that got me into heavy metal. I was already well entrenched in the power and the glory of bands like Sabbath, Saxon, and Dio. But for an impressionable youth the constant nagging from the "cool" kids at school about how lame metal was became very bothersome. Cliched white sneaker wearing future lawyers were constantly picking on me and my metal head friends. QUIET RIOT one day came on the radio and changed all that. Like an asteroid hitting the dinosaurs they wiped away all the so called un coolness about metal and made it mainstream. Suddenly all the jocks were "banging" their heads to songs like "Metal Health", And "slick Black Cadillac". So years later after the heavy smoke has cleared I got the chance to speak with one of the key architects of QUIET RIOT, Mr. Frankie Banali. They are about to release ROAD RAGE on Frontiers Records and it so…

Sabaton was formed back in 1999 in Falun, Sweden when the members of a band called "Aeon" reformed and rearmed for the upcoming first recording in Moon Music Studio. The founding members of Aeon: Rikard, Pär and Daniel Mullback had joined forces with Oskar and Joakim earlier during the year which had seen a few line-up changes and the guys decided on a fresh start and changed the name of the band to Sabaton. These are the same guys you see on stage today.
As a young proto-metalhead living in the hard streets of Riverside, Rhode Island we would all gather at whoever had the latest vinyl release and rock out for hours. Discussing techniques, listening to lyrics, guitar solos. The best albums offered up energy at its purest form. It transmitted from the vinyl grooves right into our little teenage brains. You could literally feel what the band or artist was trying to convey.
Metallica's latest release, Hardwired to self destruct offers up a modern day version of that same energy and spirit from days gone by. It is a powerful statement from a band that many had written off. One song...Now were all dead...that is the only song you need to listen to. But there are many, many more. This is grade a material from a group of artists who managed to capture their energy and channel it through this disc. This is real, this is power, this is the definition of a classic metal album.
Another great sign of a good, solid album is that you can list…
