Interview - Jack Russell's Great White - Robby Lochner

By Thomas S. Orwat Jr.

We are only a few months into 2017, and already, there have been some very impressive new rock music releases.  Perhaps, the most surprising one, is the new release by Jack Russell's Great White, entitled, 'He Saw it Comin.'  The legendary vocalist, Jack Russell, along with guitarist/songwriter, Robby Lochner, have orchestrated one of the greatest comebacks in music history with this stylistically diverse 11 track album. 

Robby Lochner can be given much of the credit for the resurrection of Russell's career.  His attention to detail, amazing guitar tone, and natural songwriting ability, coupled with Russell's strong and stunning vocals, have combined to create perhaps the most spectacular and musically satisfying release of Russell's 35-plus year career.

In addition to Russell and Lochner, Jack Russell's Great White also consists of Tony Montana - guitar, Dan McNay - bass and Dicki Fliszar -drums.    

What follows is an exclusive RMS interview with one of rock music's MVPs - Robby Lockner.

Interview - Sainted Sinners - Frank Pané

By Thomas S. Orwat Jr.

The Sainted Sinners are an amazing, new classic rock-influenced band, featuring the guitar wizardry of Frank Pané, also of the German rock band, Bonfire, and veteran vocalist, Davis Reece, formerly of Bonfire and Accept.  Their self-titled debut release hits the streets on February 24th via the El Puerto Records label.  This sonically delightful, 11-track album is already receiving outstanding reviews from many music journalists across the world.  Pané and Reece, along with bandmates: Ferdy Doernberg (keyboards/guitars), Malte Frederik Burkert (bass) and Berci Hirleman, (drums) have natural and powerful chemistry together, resulting in each member reaching a new plateau of musical excellence on this epic release.

What follows is an exclusive Rock Music Star interview with six-string superstar, Frank Pané.  During this interview, Pané explains the formation of Sainted Sinners, the band's future plans, and much more.

RockMusicstar's Top 10 of 2016

Unfortunately, 2016 has demonstrated what seems to be the ongoing decline in interest for new music (at least, anything carrying a "rock and roll" tag attached to it).  In the past year, there were a slew of great releases, which, for the most part, seemed to fly under the radar, not getting the recognition they deserve.  Even long-standing "rock" stalwarts like the Rolling Stones and the Heavy Metal juggernauts, Metallica- while both having great initial release week sales- in the end, appear to have only received lukewarm responses from their fan bases, and the music community in general.
 
Nevertheless, we, here at Rock Music Star, love and appreciate new music, and like every year, we've compiled our Top 10 releases of the year.  Take a minute, to look back with us, at our favorite releases of 2016:

Review - Kiss - Monster Mini Golf's first ever 'KISSmas' party

By John Jeffrey

Las Vegas, NV - This past Saturday, Rock Music Star was on hand for the KISS Monster Mini Golf's first ever 'KISSmas' party, located at the mini golf's new location, inside of the beautiful Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino.  In this current age of paid meet & greets (KISS being one of the first to pioneer these highly debated fan packages), to be able to meet a member of KISS for free, is truly an early KISSmas present for their fans.  The event had a great turn out, as many on hand were KISS Kruise attendees from all around the world, and what seemed like fans from the whole western US, Canada, and people flying in from as far away as Japan.
