Inked Out: All In Inkorporated

So, this was a very strange run of events. Typically when I go and review tattoo shops, I would call the shop and make an appointment to sit down with the owner or manager of the shop to interview them. Lately, I’ve been spotting tattoo shops that I just want …

Slash Featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators: Setting The World On Fire

Slash has always been one of my favorite guitar players on the planet earth since I was a young rocker, if he’s even from the planet earth. From the minute I saw “Welcome To The Jungle” on MTV (back when they still played videos), between Guns N’ Roses and Motley …

North Jersey Notes: Lion-Hearted, Scars Of Envy, Scarlet Carson and More!

I was recently contacted by Marc David Gambino (I’m sure no relation to the famed NYC crime family) of the band Lion-Hearted via my Aquarian email account. (Yes, people do still send emails! And yes, I do still answer them.) Anyway, he wanted to send me a copy of the …

Gotta Get It Right: An Interview with Sixx:A.M. and Apocalyptica

I’ve never kept it a secret in all of my columns that Mötley Crüe might be my favorite band of all time. I’ve also never kept it a secret that bassist Nikki Sixx has been my idol since childhood. That being said, when Sixx:A.M., Nikki’s side-project, released The Heroin Diaries

North Jersey Notes: End Of An Era, Mikell’s Plot, Marc Rizzo and More!

One of the bands that I’ve featured in the past has really evolved and has even become a huge part of the Jersey music scene again. My buddy Zipperhead, from Zipperhead Productions, has even brought my attention to the band again, and I have to admit, for a band doing …

North Jersey Notes: Awjita, Steve Bello Band, Orbynot and More!

I recently received a private message on Facebook from Awjita guitarist and singer Alan Rigoletto asking me to check out his band. Now, sending me a private message on Facebook wasn’t the funny part, since bands I am not friends with do that all the time and it really might …
