Sister Sin - Broadway Joe's - Buffalo , NY - 05- 26-2011

Review by John Jeffrey
Photos taken by Diana MacDonald

Buffalo,NY - "Stockholm Syndrome" is a term used to describe a phenomenon when someone is taken hostage and becomes sympathetic to their captors.  On May 26th, 2011, I believe I experienced a similar, yet different kind of 'Stockholm Syndrome,' after spending the day with Sweden's very own, Sister Sin.  While I was certainly not kidnapped by the band (I was kindly invited to come down to the venue and meet the band during 'load in'), I did begin to feel a certain amount of empathy for the group, as their gig that evening was met with quite a few obstacles, as at some points it did not seem like the show would happen at all.

Press release -Ted Nugent reunites with Derek St. Holmes for upcoming summer tour. 


The MotorCity Madman and the MotorCity Soulman have reunited for the ultimate high energy all American Rock-N-Roll party of alltimes! Rejoining Ted Nugent, Mick Brown and Greg Smith for the 2011 "I STILL BELIEVE" North American tour, Derek St. Holmes, THE VOICE on "Stranglehold," "Hey Baby," "Just What The Dr. Ordered,' "Workin Hard Playin Hard," "Spirit of the Wild," "Dog Eat Dog" and numerous other Ted Nugent classics, the quartet is hyper jacked up for the tour of their lives. Derek was a member of Ted Nugent and the Amboy Dukes from 1973 and provided that magic soulful voice to the ground breaking Ted Nugent solo record in 1975.

Following the historical Cal Jam II in March of 1978, St. Holmes headed off for his own solo musical adventure, but again collaborated with Nugent on the "Spirit of the Wild" record and tours in 1995 and 1996. Joining the Nugent band on tour often over the years for impromptu jam sessions and performing Nugent classics on stage, the fun factor was just too much for the boys to ignore, so Derek is now a fulltime member of the Nugent Band once again. With Nugent selling more than 40 million records and St. Holmes singing lead on some of the most popular Nugent classics ever, fans across America are super psyched at this classic reunion. The "I STILL BELIEVE" tour throttles relentlessly across America June, July, August and into September. The gory details, all concert dates and direct communication with Ted and the band is at I Still Believe. Do you? --Ted

CD Review - Iron Maiden - From Fear to Eternity: The Best of 1990-2010

By Thomas S. Orwat Jr.

Iron Maiden is undeniably one of the most influential metal bands of all time, and very possibly the most popular in the world. And although the band’s first seven albums are regarded as their essential releases, at least in North America, Iron Maiden has released some brilliant songs over the last two decades, many of which are encapsulated on this two disc compilation.

Interview - Great White - Mark Kendall

Great White is one of those bands that just won't go away. Emerging on the hard rock scene in 1978 and essentially getting signed after performing a gig at The Whiskey, in Hollywood, one night in 1982, Great White has been recording and touring for the last 30 years and have sold over 12 million records. Their road of triumph has not been without tragedy, as most remarkably, the Station nightclub fire, which occurred in February of 2003. While everyone was playing the blame game, regarding who was at fault for the fire, it is often overlooked that Great White lost guitarist Ty Longley in the incident. Bad luck struck again, as On August 11, 2010, front man Jack Russell underwent emergency surgery for a perforated bowel. After being rushed to the hospital, he nearly died, and doctors implanted a colostomy bag. After being ordered to take a year off of touring, first, ex-Warrant front man Jani Lane stepped in to help the band finish the 2010 tour, and in 2011, Terry Ilous, former XYZ lead singer, has taken on the role of leading Great White. Ilous brings a dynamic and fresh approach to the Great White sound.

However, Jack Russell is not done and neither is Great White. During our interview with guitarist Mark Kendall, he made it very clear that Ilous' position in the band is only temporary, as Jack Russell is currently going through physical therapy, in order to be able to perform with the band, once again. The next step will be recording a brand new Great White album. Mark was very candid about the band's current situation and is very content and happy with the success they have attained thus far. He is equally as excited for the future. Read on for our exclusive, interview.

Concert review - Cake - Artpark, Lewiston, NY - 05/20/2011

Review/photos- John Jeffrey

Lewiston, NY - Upon arriving to Lewiston's Artpark concert area on a cool, damp Friday night, it was to my surprise that the Cake show scheduled that evening, was being held indoors. The somewhat small, but very nice venue (with not a bad seat in the whole place) saved the crowd, from what would have been a sloppy mudfest, due to the afternoon rain showers that were bestowed upon us, on what some were calling, the last day of the world (Note: Incase you are not aware, some false religious prophets claimed the following day - Saturday, May 21, 2011 was to be world's "Judgement Day"). I figured if what those lunatics were saying was going to be true, I would spend my last night on earth, having my 'Cake' and eating it too, right?
