1/30: LATEST REPORT FROM EDDIE

Really crazy schedule trying to get caught up with things from being away the past week with the Dee Snider roast, NAMM, the radio show Monday, and a shoot for VH1 Classic yesterday for an upcoming Guns N Roses special concert/video special. Details on when that will air coming, sometime in March. NAMM was overwhelming. If you heard my radio show Monday you know we covered much of it. So hard to even begin to cover everything here. Some exclusive video interviews from NAMM will be posted here soon. Also we have reactivated the members side. Thanks to all members for bearing with us through the new site change. We will be accepting new members with information to come soon.

 

Getting a kick out of some of the comments now available here on the site under our various posts. I welcome all comments agree or disagree, but please do not post requests for TMS guests. It serves no purpose. As I have stated many times we have a process of guests based on who is available, who we want, and of course if the ARTIST THEMSELVES want to do the show. Everything else is welcome as long as posted respectfully.

 

I’ll be back live on the Q104 show this Friday with Tom Keifer as my guest. 11P-2A ET Q104.3 FM or online via the free iheartradio app.

 

Much more to share with you guys and more stuff coming to the site in time. We shoot more TMS end of April, details TBA.

 

Coming in March look forward to the Monsters Of Rock Cruise (which is sold out!) and appearing at my first ever R&R Fantasy Camp in Vegas!

QUIET RIOT’S FRANKIE BANALI DISCUSSES KEEPING THE BAND’S LEGACY ALIVE

frankiebanaliChris Epting of Noisecreep reports:

It’s hard to believe but March, 2013 marks the 30th anniversary of Quiet Riot’s Metal Health. On the strength of the now legendary anthems Cum on Feel the Noize (a cover of the 1973 Slade hit) and Bang Your Head (Metal Health), it became the first-ever American heavy metal debut album to reach number one in the United States.

As well, in November of that year, Quiet Riot became the very first heavy metal artist to have both a top five hit and a number one album in the same week. This was a group that broke down many doors for what was to follow in the metal genre; fueled by the theatrics of founding vocalist, the late Kevin DuBrow, and the thunderous pounding of his best pal, drummer Frankie Banali.

In 2007, DuBrow was found dead at his home in Las Vegas. After struggling with whether or not to continue the band, Banali eventually pulled things together and as the torchbearer for Quiet Riot has worked incredibly hard to not just maintain their legacy, but also keep an active band on the road called Quiet Riot. Many people don’t realize that for decades, Banali was more than just the band’s drummer. Banali – who has also played in W.A.S.P., Heavy Bones and Billy Idol, among others — also served as Quiet Riot’s manager and road manager which meant that in addition to getting up on stage every night, behind-the-scenes he was dealing with every other detail imaginable.

Noisecreep had the great pleasure of sitting down with Banali at the 2013 NAMM show to talk all things Quiet Riot. A documentary will soon be released on the band and in advance of that we were happy to hear the stories from one of rock ‘n’ roll’s truly best storytellers. Watch the interview below.

METALLICA TO HEADLINE THE 5th ANNUAL GOLDEN GODS AWARDS

5thgoldengodsThe fifth annual Revolver Golden Gods Awards presented by Epiphone will take place Thursday, May 2nd, at Club Nokia in Downtown Los Angeles. For the first time ever, the event will be broadcast live on national television through AXS TV and broadcast in the US and key international markets through Xbox LIVE and Facebook. Tickets are available through Ticketmaster.

Fozzy frontman and WWE pro-wrestling legend Chris Jericho will reprise his role as host for the fourth consecutive year. The nominees in 11 different fan-voted categories, plus the recipients of this year’s prestigious Ronnie James Dio Lifetime Achievement Award (presented by Ernie Ball), Golden God Award (presented by Sumerian Records) and Riff Lord (presented by EMG Pickups), were revealed at a press conference at the Hard Rock Cafe Hollywood in Los Angeles.

Host Chris Jericho was on hand, along with Sebastian Bach, Five Finger Death Punch, Halestorm, Scott Ian (Anthrax), Maria Brink and Chris Howorth (In This Moment), John 5 (Rob Zombie), Greg Puciato (Dillinger Escape Plan) and Zakk Wylde to announce the nominees. Halestorm performed a special live set, including a guest appearance by Sebastian Bach on a cover of the Skid Row classic Slave to the Grind.

Fans everywhere can cast their vote to decide who will take home the awards for Best Guitarist (presented by Epiphone), Best Drummer (presented by Drum Workshop), Best Vocalist (presented by Rockstar Energy Drink), Album of the Year (presented by Orange Amplification), Song of the Year, Best Live Band (presented by Samson/Zoom), Best New Talent, Most Metal Athlete, (presented by Roadrunner Records), Comeback of the Year, Paul Gray Best Bassist (presented by Dean Markley) and Most Dedicated Fans (presented by Xbox LIVE).

Voting is now open at GoldenGodsAwards.com and ends April 15th.

The Golden God Award (presented by Sumerian Records), which is given to one special honoree a year who embodies the spirit of hard rock and metal, will go to Rob Zombie, who commented, “What can I say? It is a complete honor to receive this award and have my name join the list of such legendary past winners as Alice Cooper and Gene Simmons. Pretty cool deal to be part of the Golden God club.” (The other previous honorees are Rob Halford of Judas Priest and Dave Mustaine of Megadeth.) Rob Zombie will be releasing his brand new album, Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor (Zodiac Swan/T-Boy/Ume), on April 23rd, and his latest feature film, The Lords of Salem (Anchor Bay), on April 26th.

The Ronnie James Dio Lifetime Achievement Award (presented by Ernie Ball), will go to hard-rock and metal icons Metallica, who will release the 3D movie Through the Never in August. (Previous honorees include Rush, Motley Crue, Lemmy Kilmister of Motorhead and Ozzy Osbourne.)

Metallica’s Lars Ulrich commented, “Since the Revolver Golden Gods Awards is fast becoming THE most rocking awards ceremony in the hard rock world, we are beyond psyched to be at the receiving end of this shout out and in the distinguished company of Rush, Lemmy, Ozzy and Motley Crue. I was hanging out and presenting at the shenanigans two years ago and the energy in the room and the vibe backstage was beyond fucking cool, so Metallica is chomping at the bit to partake in this year’s event. Once again, we are honored to be recognized as achievers (!!) and we can’t wait to get up and jam onstage and sweat for and on everybody gathered.

The Riff Lord Award, (presented by EMG Pickups) is given each year to a legendary guitarist in the field of hard rock & heavy metal. This year it’s going to none other than Black Sabbath axeman, Tony Iommi, who had this to say about the honor, “What a great honor to receive the Golden Gods Riff Lord Award for 2013, especially with our new Sabbath album coming out. I hope there will be some new favorite riffs in these songs.” Slash of Guns N’ Roses and Velvet Revolver won the award last year.

Adding to the celebration, the 2013 Revolver Golden Gods Awards show will feature one-of-a-kind special performances and collaborations that honor both the past, present and future of heavy music. The night’s hard-rocking musical performances will include sets by Metallica, Five Finger Death Punch, Anthrax, Stone Sour, Dillinger Escape Plan and Halestorm, with more performers to be announced in the coming weeks.

Returning as well is the “Black Carpet” pre-show that will be hosted by legendary heavy-metal frontmen Sebastian Bach and Dee Snider. Bach and Snider will be interviewing all the nominees, honorees and performers on the Revolver Black Carpet before show time for the special, which will air on both AXS TV and Xbox LIVE.

TOM KEIFER PREMIERES “THE FLOWER SONG” ONLINE, NEW ALBUM OUT APRIL 30TH

bandThe time has come for fans of Tom Keifer who’ve been waiting over 10 years to finally hear his solo music. The Flower Song premiered on USA Today’s website yesterday, who proclaim “has the feel of a vintage Faces cut–a little Maggie May, a little Ooh La La–with Keifer’s gritty vocals front and center.” It’s the first single from his long-awaited, highly anticipated solo album, The Way Life Goes, due out April 30th through Merovee Records in conjunction with ADA Label Services.

The Flower Song will be serviced to radio stations nationwide on February 4th, while Solid Ground will be serviced to all Rock formats on March 11th.

“To me, that song is about how unbelievable it is that you’re able to find that one person that’s perfect for you,” as Tom Keifer explained to USA Today’s Brian Mansfield. “Obviously, it’s told from the perspective of a guy, but I think it’s true for both men and women: When you find that one person, it’s a miracle.”

The Way Life Goes ranges from intimate, organic, acoustic tracks to driving hard rock. It embraces the blues, rock and country roots that have always been present in his unique sound that has generated the sale of over 15 million records worldwide for Cinderella.

In touring news, Keifer will launch his first-ever solo tour on February 9th in Winston-Salem, NC at Ziggy’s. The 14-city trek of small, intimate rooms is an up-close and personal preview of songs from THE WAY LIFE GOES along with some Cinderella classics. Dates beyond February 28th are currently in the works.
