Since American Idol, Durbin has released three solo records.

As we go to press, it is confirmed that Durbin has been hired by Quiet Riot to be their new vocalist.

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.

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:
