Concert review - Hinder, Red, Kopek - Rapids Theater, Niagara Falls, NY - May 17,2011

Review by John Jeffrey,  Photos by Thomas S. Orwat Jr.
Niagara Falls, NY- On a rainy day in May, Hinder made their appearance in Western New York, playing the Rapids Theatre in Niagara Falls. The entire staff was on hand for the show, arriving while Royal Bliss was playing, as we didn't catch any of their set. Their crowd was pretty packed and everyone seemed hungry for some good 'ol rock and roll.

Concert review - Kopek - Boulevard Mall , Amherst, NY - May 17, 2011

"Karousing with Kopek"
Review by John Jeffrey , Photos by Thomas S. Orwat Jr.

Amherst, NY - Ever since Thomas ( webmaster) and I attended Kopek's private acoustic show (here in Buffalo) not too long ago, we've both been sold on the fact that Kopek is an amazing band, on the verge of being hugely successful. So when it was confirmed that Kopek would be coming back to the area, opening for Hinder (in Niagara Falls, NY), I was really psyched to go see them live - full on electric.

Interview - Sixx: A.M. - James Michael 

Five years ago, James Michael had all but given up the dream of being a 'rock star.'  After a failed attempt as a solo artist, James had become content with working behind the scenes for other musicians, producing and writing for legends like Meatloaf and (more recently) the Scorpions.
But out of nowhere, James Michael found himself thrust into the spotlight, as the frontman of Sixx: A.M, touring the US for the first annual (Motley) Cruefest, as Nikki Sixx's mere 'soundtrack' to his autobiography ("The Heroin Diaries") became a hit that no one really expected.
That was four years ago.  James is now enjoying the fact that Sixx: A.M. has another hit on their hands, as "This Is Gonna Hurt" (released May 3, 2011) debuted in Billboard's Top 10 album chart.  However, this time, don't expect to see Sixx: A.M. hitting the road anytime soon, as both Nikki Sixx and Dj Ashba, have tours coming up with both of their respective, 'main' bands.  Aside from the CD's tie in with Nikki's photography book (of the same name), the group have been discussing some alternate ways to promote "This Is Gonna Hurt."
While James is in the midst of writing for a myriad of other projects, he took the time to call us here, at, to catch us up on what he's been doing, and what lies head for Sixx: A.M.
