North Jersey Notes: Killcode, Weapon of Anew, Resurge, and more

A couple of weekends ago, my bros from Killcode released a teaser for their upcoming video for their song “Kicking and Screaming.” The video seemed to be a compilation of live footage from the boys as they rocked festivals in Mexico and South America with Twisted Sister. I have to …

ANOTHER DAY DAWNS—Lehighton, PA

I recently stumbled across this great hard rock band out of Lehighton, PA when I noticed they had a similar name to my buds in New Day Dawn. I’m glad that I stumbled upon them, though, because I really liked what I heard. The name of …

North Jersey Notes: Retrofeelya, Skid Row, MoTHER, and more!

RETROFEELYA—Poughkeepsie, NY

Yes, I featured a band from upstate New York last week, but another band has piqued my interest from up that way. This is a band that I’ve heard a lot about, but never really had a chance to give them a listen until today. The name of …

An Interview with Myles Kennedy of Alter Bridge: Ready To Show You A Leader

After many attempts to nail down an interview with Alter Bridge frontman Myles Kennedy, I finally got him! Every time I requested Myles when the opportunity came up, I got Mark Tremonti or Slash, which is not a bad thing by any means, but sometimes you just want to talk …

Inked Out: Dream Jungle Tattoo – Long Beach, Ca

So, while I’m out here for the NAMM convention, I started to Google some tattoo shops in the area that I might be able to go visit, but then I came across this shop in Long Beach that wasn’t really a shop, which intrigued me even more. Okay, it’s really …

North Jersey Notes: Joe Mansman and The Midnight Revival Band, Concrete God, Blameshift, and more

Joe Mansman and The Midnight Revival Band—Glens Falls, NY

I came across a very cool band out of Glens Falls, NY, of all places. Yes, it’s quite a bit north of North Jersey, but when North Jersey isn’t producing the best music possible, sometimes I have to venture outside my …

North Jersey Notes: Weapons Of Anew, Corevalay, Incognito Theory, and more

WEAPONS OF ANEW—New York City

There’s a brand new band on the scene that has really piqued my interest. They piqued my interest because the band features two of my former bandmates, former Spread Eagle and Hostel Inc. frontman Ray West and my former Smoke Star drummer and former Audio …

North Jersey Notes: ELI, The Compulsions, Killcode, and more

ELI—Parsippany, NJ

There’s a trio out of Parsippany that I’ve been keeping my eye on because they’re the first local band that I’ve ever heard of to have the balls to put out a double record. The name of the band is ELI and in 2015, they released the CDs …

North Jersey Notes: Bound By Substance, Concrete God, Cycle Of Pain, and more

BOUND BY SUBSTANCE—Queens, NY

I thought I featured these guys in the past and it looks like I haven’t. There are so many bands, yet so little time. Anyway, these guys are performing with my buds from Charetta this Friday night (1/13) at the Gramercy Theatre in NYC. I’m talking …

Inked Out: Powerline Tattoo—Cranston, RI

If you read this column every month, you realize that I love to travel. Yes, I can check out tattoo shops in Jersey, which I do, but wouldn’t you like to know about cool tattoo artists and shops around the country? A couple of weeks ago, my band, Rahway, was …
