The Money Grind

26 11 2008

Many people say timetraveling is impossible, but I just found out a way to return to the 80’s L.A. hard rock scene with this great album by Willie Basse. Back in the 80’s Willie was frontman of the band “Black Sheep”, the band Slash was in during his pre-Guns days. Black Sheep was home to a lot of well-known rock artist such as the late Randy Castillo (Ozzy Osbourne, Mötley Crüe).

As you all know, right now we’re in the 21st century and it’s very clear the music industry needs a firm metal kick in the fucking ass. Well.. Willie Basse and his band, who have also worked with an impressive list of famous rock artists (of which Ozzy Osbourne, Aerosmith, the Scorpions and Black Sabbath are just view), are here to give that kick as hard as they can. With the new album “The Money Grind” they’re not only kicking ass but it takes you way back to the 80’s with thick guitar riffs, high-pitch vocals and fast guitar solo’s.

The album starts off with an amazing intstrumental track called “Guitargasm”, and I must say, the title says it all. It’s just this huge hammer made out off guitar riffs and solo’s that knocks you out and I guess it could make some guys have an orgasm. Then after a moment off breath the second track “(Love So) Far Away” kicks in with this early Mötley Crüe sounding guitar riff. The chorus is a true 80’s singalong (or should I say chantalong).

There are killerriffs all over the album on tracks like “Don’t Waste My Time”, the title track “The Money Grind” and “U Can’t Have It All”. The track called “Po’ Boy” is something different all together.. It guides you around a couple of different genre’s in music such as reggea, blues and heavy metal. And it’s done in a very good way, ’cause I don’t really dig reggae but this song is actually one of my favorites on this album.

So if you’re into heavy metal that sounds like it’s from the 80’s but still has a modern feel to it. (In other words the music that matters). I highly recommend this album to you.

Exclusive INK N SLEAZE interview coming soon!





This just crossed my mind..

14 11 2008

Is Dr.Pepper gonna giver every single American, except for Slash and Buckethead, a free can of Dr.Pepper now that Chinese Democracy is about to be released next week?

As the company said in May this year: “everyone in America” (excluding ex-Guns members Slash and Buckethead) if “Chinese Democracy” arrives anytime during the calendar year 2008.

Though Buckethead shouldn’t wet his KFC-Bucket with his tears, ‘cos Axl said he’d be happy to share his can with him. I’m sorry Slash.. I guess you’ll have to buy one for yourself..





Some Velvet Updates

19 08 2008

Just found this on the internet about the future of Velvet Revolver:

(source: wikipedia)
Bassist Duff McKagan has recently stated that the band has been working on new material. It has been inspired by the recent drama by former vocalist Scott Weiland.

In a recent online interview Matt Sorum revealed that the band is in negotiations with a “Big Name Singer”, no names were released yet on who the singer might be.





Loaded Revolver

Loaded

Velvet Revolver bassist Duff McKagan is hitting the studio again next moth with his band Loaded. Duff himself announced it on http://www.duff-loaded.com a couple of days ago.

Hey Guys Well, here we go. Loaded will be start our new record on June 4th in Seattle. We hope to sort of blaze right through it and make a big, live rock sounding record! Rock Out! Duff.

Duff will be hitting the road again too with Loaded this summer. He also announced he will appear on Izzy Stradlin’s new solo album.

I hear you all thinkin, will he have enough time to help VR find a new singer and write new stuff? I guess so.. The man is juggling with all kinds of things atm. This is what he said in a post a while ago:

I just left Matt’s where we laid down 12 new jams….KILLER! Kick ass people!

I hope I can be more up to date with my posts in the future..





Bach’s reaction on rumours of him joining Velvet Revolver

10 05 2008

Velvet Bach

I always thought it wasn’t gonna be Bach in VR.. anyway, this is what I just read on wikipedia:

On May 6, 2008, ex-Skid Row frontman Sebastian Bach was interviewed on “The Buckethead Show” on Tampa’s 98 Rock radio station about the rumors concering him being considered for the position of lead singer in Velvet Revolver, after the split from Scott Weiland.
He said that he actually spoke to Slash recently, but also that joining Velvet Revolver will be very awkward for him and unlikely, stating he thinks his latest solo record “Angel Down” is better than all of Velvet Revolver’s records, and that since he is very good friends with Axl Rose, he said he would feel uncomfortable to sing Axl’s songs (refering to Guns N’ Roses covers that the band performs on live shows), although he finished off with saying “I love Guns N’ Roses material, but I’ve got my own old songs — Skid Row — so for me, it would all depend on music. I wouldn’t just join the band just to join the band. If we came up with some incredible new songs, then maybe I’d think about it.”

———————————————

Okay.. 2 things..
1. Now I’m even more glad it isn’t gonna be Bach in VR.
2. He did make me curious about Angel Down..





I’m a Son of a Gun and the Gun of a Son

Are you a Appetite-era GN’R fan? Do you just love the raw and gritty sound of that album? The absolute mayhem the album was about?

crm

Than I recommend you buy the latest Classic Rock magazine, ’cause when you do that, you’ll get a free cd with it called “Sons of Guns III”. The disc contains 16 bands with an Appetite For Destruction! Bands like Crystal Pistol, Dopesnake, Bubblegum Screw, Gypsy Pistoleros, United Enemies and Flexx Bronco bring you that sleazy, bluesy rock n’ roll sound GN’R once stood for.. So if you’re sick of waiting for Chinese Democracy and want to get the feel like you’re listening to a new (old)Guns N’ Roses record, Buy the fucking magazine!

This months issue also contains an interview with Duff McKagan and Slash about the break-up with Scott, and an interview with Scott about Velvet Revolver.
