Price: $25.00

WIKKID STARR ends the 2018 year with probably the biggest gig of the year opening up for Hard Rock legends Quiet Riot. Toney Richards, Joe Rokker, Amelia Gioiello and Crash Cummings have had a great 2018 opening up for several National Acts. They are saving the best for last with this particular show being the final one of the 2018  campaign.

2019 promises to be an even more active year for WIKKID STARR with possible shows in the U.K. in the early part of the year and a trip to South America (Buenos Aires, Argentina) in mid to late November. This show will sell out so make sure that you buy your tickets early in order to cure the Holiday Blues...!!

The current Quiet Riot line-up includes: Frankie Banali, Chuck Wright, Alex Grossi and James Durbin on vocals. The band made history in 1983 when they released their debut U.S. album Metal Health which hit the # 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100. Quiet Riot was the first Heavy Metal Band  to have a top 5 hit and a # 1 album in the same week.  "Cum on Feel the Noize" was the first Heavy Metal song to make the top 5 on the Billboard charts. The iconic line-up of: Kevin DuBrow on vocals, Carlos Cavazo on guitar, Rudy Sarzo on bass & Frankie Banali on drums were never able to recapture the magic that had catapulted the band to the huge success that they attained from 1983-1987.

Paul Shortino (ex. Rough Cutt vocalist) replaced DuBrow in 1987. DuBrow passed away of a drug overdose in November of 2007 at his apartment in Las Vegas.

The band has gone through 4 lead vocalists since the death of DuBrow in the 2007- they included: Mark Huff (ex.5150 ), Keith St.John (ex. Montrose & Burning Rain) & Jizzy Pearl (ex. Love/Hate).

Sean Nichols (ex. Adler's Appetite & ICON) ended up being replaced by American Idol finalist James Durbin due to Binali and Nichols feuding over the vocalist wanting more creative input on the new album. Binali made the executive decision and moved on from Nichols and went with Durbin.

The 2017 album Road Rage with Durbin singing is a solid effort. Durbin is the 5th vocalist that Quiet Riot has worked with since the death of Kevin DuBrow. The Quiet Riot  Documentary entitled: "Well Now You're Here, There's No Way Back" was released on April 29, 2014 @ the Newport Beach Film Festival and was warmly received. Check it out if you havent already.

This promises to be a kick ass show- also on the bill will be Darling Dead which features (ex. WIKKID STARR, Suicide Alley) guitarist Ashlynn Childs reviving his old 90's Glam Project.  See you all there..!

Callwood at the Cooler #15 / By: Brett Callwood

“Callwood at the Cooler” is a new bi-weekly column which will see me waxing lyrical about events in the news, pop culture and the etc. Sometimes it’ll be light, other times not-so when the rant/monolog demands. The subject matter will vary dramatically so expect anything and keep coming back.

Punky Meadows and Snakefists…

On March 10, I went to the Sunset Strip to see two shows in one night. At the Whisky was Punky Meadows, former guitarist with glam metal band Angel. Across the street at the Viper Room was local punk ’n’ rollers Snakefist. There were some great opening bands between the two venues too—Bang Feather Bang (playing the Viper) is a noisy, garage-glam two-piece that sits somewhere between T-Rex and the White Stripes, while Definity (at the Whisky) is a power-metal band of the Iron Maiden variety with Latin roots, with about half of the songs sung in Spanish. Punky Meadows played a killer set, a smart mix of Angel classics and newbies, but Snakefist were a different class entirely. The band explodes onto the stage in a blur of Motorhead/Zeke punk rock energy, and then tears through a set of manic hard rock future-classics. On record, they sound lighter—a bit Skid Row—and there’s nothing wrong with that. But you have to see them live to get the full effect. Tremendous band.

Elsewhere over the last couple of weeks, local hard rock vets Y&T played a great show at The Rose in Pasadena, tracks like “Mean Streak” sounding majestic in that big room. Opening that night were Angeles (another local remnant from the ’80s), and new sleaze rock band   Wikkid Starr. That latter band features former Life, Sex & Death/AntiProduct man Alex Kane on guitar, and they played a decent set that included one exceptional song called “Get It, Got It, Good.”  Worth a look.

Battle For Hair Nation Review

HighWire Daze

Battle For Hair Nation, The Whisky, August 17, 2016

It was a Wednesday night within the wilds of the Sunset Strip, and the place to be was at The Whisky to witness some of finest local talent compete in the mighty Battle For Hair Nation.

The two top acts would win a spot on one of the two stages at the upcoming SiriusXM’s Hair Nation Festival taking place at the Irvine Meadows Amphitheatre on September 17th.

Judges for the event included Sirius XM radio host Eddie Trunk, the legendary Ms. Lita FordTracii Guns (LA Guns), Brent Woods (guitarist for Sebastian Bach), and Jay Ruston (producer / engineer for artists such as Anthrax, Steel Panther, Stone Sour, The Winery Dogs, and more).

It was fantastic to see so many in the audience out to support their favorite band, and then staying for the entire show to check out the competition.  And now on the bands…  (Read the entire review by clicking on the link).
