Exclusive Video Debut - THE MOLICE - “Sparkling of the Light”

Sparkling of Light - The Molice from robby takac on Vimeo.

We are honored to be premiering the brand new video by THE MOLICE, for the song, "Sparkling of the Light.” This track is from the band's upcoming "Signs" EP, which will be released on December 1st on Good Charamel Records; the record label owner by rock icon Robby Takac.

According to Robby,“The video was shot at an abandoned grain elevator in Buffalo, NY recently repurposed for location filming and events as Silo City. The song ‘Sparkling of Light’ was recorded in NY on the band's last trip to the US last year at my studio, GCR Audio. The ‘Sparkling’ video was shot with drones and handheld cameras guerilla-style in a single afternoon.”

Interview - Pinky Doodle Poodle

By Thomas S. Orwat Jr.

The Alternative rock band from Toyko Japan, Pinky Doodle Poodle, will be releasing their fourth studio release, "Poodle Boogie," on this Friday, Nov 17th.  This guitar-driven, catchy, five-song EP is an impressive effort from two very creative, innovative and talented musicians: George on guitar, and Yuria on bass/vocals.  The dynamic duo has greatly progressed in their songwriting skills since signing with Good Charamel Records, the label owned/operated by the Goo Goo Dolls’ - Robby Takac in 2014.

Pinky Doodle Poodle  toured the USA last summer, winning over many fans along the way. The band plans on coming back in 2018. Don't miss them if they come to your town.

Concert review - GWAR, Ghoul, Doyle - Town Ballroom - November 1, 2017

Review by John Jeffrey, photos by Thomas S. Orwat Jr.

Buffalo, NY - Last week, All Hallows Eve had an extended stay in Western New York, as one of the most fiendish concert billings you could draw up on paper performed for a large gathering of metal heads, at the one and only, Town Ballroom, in downtown Buffalo.  It's hard to imagine a better lineup than Gwar, Doyle, the US Bastards, and a group that call themselves "Ghoul," to perform on the day after Halloween.  While the near sell out crowd may disagree with me, but while this bill may have looked great on paper, the actual show itself left a lot to be desired.

Tom Petty (1950 - 2017) - photo gallery tribute

By Thomas S. Orwat Jr.

We here at Rock Music Star are deeply saddened and shocked to hear of the sudden death of rock icon, Tom Petty.  He was a songwriting genius, with a vast array of hits that included: "American Girl," "I Need to Know," "Free Fallin'," "The Waiting," "Don't Do Me Like That," and many more.  Petty's songs were simply magical; he could elevate you from your most miserable mood and put a smile on your face.

I was fortunate to photograph Tom Petty two times at Darien Lake PAC, NY; once on August 28, 2010, and on September 7, 2014. Both were amazing shows.  I've included some of my photos of these performances below. 

Rest in Peace Mr. Petty, your music and memories will live on forever.
