RATED X Added To Vasby Rock Festival

Wednesday, November 5, 2014
VASBY ROCK FESTIVAL is extremely proud to announce that Rated X are coming to Väsby Rock Festival.
All Star Hard Rock Line Up Includes Vocalist Joe Lynn Turner; Drummer Carmine Appice; Bassist Tony Franklin and Guitarist Karl Cochran.
RATED X was formed at the suggestion of Frontiers President Serafino Perugino, who mentioned to singer Joe Lynn Turner that a band of highest caliber musicians should be assembled to create an album of Classic Hard Rock music. Turner, the former lead vocalist for both Rainbow and Deep Purple and a solo artist in his own right, agreed, and the search for the right players was on. Carmine Appice, who already had a relationship with Frontiers, was on board immediately. A true percussion icon, Appice’s resume is one that
Rock legends are made of: Vanilla Fudge, Cactus, Ozzy Osbourne, Rod Stewart, Blue Murder, King Kobra and others.
Appice’s former Blue Murder bandmate and bassist, Tony Franklin (best known for his work with The Firm, Jimmy Page, Paul Rodgers, David Gilmour, Kate Bush, and Whitesnake), signed up next. After a lengthy search for the right guitarist, they settled on long-time Turner collaborator Karl Cochran, who has also worked with Ace Frehley, and worked in the past with Joe Lynn Turner on his solo albums.
-We know this is going to be an awesome band to see on stage at Väsby Rock Festival next summer. So many great members with such a resume, it’s an all star line-up, says Väsby Rock Crew.
Rated X will be playing songs from their new album, but also take us back through the memory lane with some of their old classic rock songs.

Hosted by UK-based Classic Rock magazine, the 10th annual Classic Rock Awards--the Classic Rock Roll Of Honour presented by Orange Amplification--announced today a stellar line-up of live performances from some of the most exciting and respected artists in rock: Kings Of Chaos, California Breed, Rival Sons and Scott Weiland & The Wildabouts.

This star-studded list of performers will be joining an already announced list of rock icons to be on-hand at the all-star event on November 4 at the Avalon in Hollywood, CA including: Sammy Hagar (this year's host), Gregg Allman (this year's Living Legend Award recipient) and guitarist Robby Krieger and drummer John Densmore of The Doors (this year's Inspiration Award recipient), and many more.

Kings Of Chaos, the part-time, all-star rock'n'roll collective, are one of the most exciting live bands in rock for two distinct reasons: 1. The a-list revolving door of guest performers; and 2. The bands core line-up of Guns N' Roses' Duff McKagan, Matt Sorum and Gilby Clarke alongside guitar aficionado, Extreme's Nuno Bettencourt. It's a combination that brings anticipation and killer live performances in abundance.

For this intimate live performance, Kings of Chaos will be joined on stage by Sammy Hagar, the evening's host and frontman of Van Halen, Montrose and Chickenfoot; former Deep Purple and current California Breed frontman Glenn Hughes; and more rock royalty, Def Leppard's Joe Elliott and Phil Collen; and one of the most recognizable and important figures in rock, Billy Gibbons (ZZ Top).

As well as performing with the aforementioned Kings of Chaos, Glenn Hughes will also be playing a stripped-back set with his current band California Breed, with 23-year-old newcomer guitarist-singer-songwriter Andrew Watt.

Rival Sons have seen a meteoric rise in international recognition since their inception in 2009. Playing to thousands in sell-out shows around the world, this will be a unique performance in front of hundreds of their peers.

Scott Weiland, notorious frontman of Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver, brings his new band, Scott Weiland & The Wildabouts, to perform their acclaimed live show to this star-studded audience.

Classic Rock editor Si'n Llewellyn says: "Playing live is the lifeblood of rock'n'roll and there are few things as thrilling as watching a rock show. On November 4th we'll be privileged to witness four unique performances from some of the very best in the business."

The Classic Rock Roll Of Honour awards will air on AXS TV in December (exact date TBA).

Voting for the listener and fan-voted categories just closed and winners will be announced at the awards. For the full list of nominees for this year's listener and fan-voted categories, click here.

The evening culminates with a live performance.

Reflecting the explosive growth of the Classic Rock brand, the event has grown from humble beginnings to become one of the rare 'must-dos' on the rock calendar.

Lee's band, Red Dragon Cartel, on a nearly month-long tour of North America, kicking off on December 2nd in New York City and wrapping up on December 20th in Baltimore.

"I feel both honored and privileged to once again take my band on tour with one of my all time favorite guitar players, Jake E. Lee!," says Brosh about the upcoming trek. "Jake's playing, writing and overall style have been an influence and an inspiration since the very beginning stages of my guitar playing. We've all been waiting many years to see Jake back on the scene so I feel lucky to be a small part of it on this upcoming tour. I can't wait to be back out there seeing my fans again and doing what I love to do most!"

Mixed by Max Norman (Ozzy Osbourne, Megadeth) and featuring the talents of world-class bassist Dave Ellefson, as well as the mastering expertise of Bob Ludwig (Bon Jovi, Def Leppard, Iron Maiden), 'Live the Dream' is Brosh's most exciting and ambitious project to date. And the album cover painting by Joe Petagno (Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd) is also sure to turn heads.

Issued by Carmine Appice's label Rocker Records LLC, "Live the Dream" is available for purchase via these links:

iTunes -

Amazon -

The buzz continues to build for guitar hero Ethan Brosh, and it will undoubtedly only grow stronger now that a brand new video has been filmed for one of the many standout tracks from his latest album, 'Live the Dream,' titled "Space Invaders." The clip puts Brosh's impressive six-string skills front and center, which can be viewed in the link below.
As Brosh himself explains, "A music video is something that has to go hand in hand with the music that it's associated with. It is part of the art as a whole. It is the image that will stay in the minds of the listeners for as long as they listen to that particular musical piece. When I have a music video done, I take the process almost as seriously as I take my music. A lot of time, energy and attention to detail gets into play when we shoot or edit a video."
And Brosh has nothing but praise for the video's director, Seth C. Brown. "This video was made by Seth C. Brown who can turn any rushed, impossible to shoot scene with bad lighting into a beautiful work of art! I'm very proud of the new video for 'Space Invaders,' and can't wait to make more videos for this record!

TOTO, JUDAS PRIEST & MOTLEY CRUE For Sweden Rock Fest 2015

Wednesday, June 3, 2015
Late Saturday night, in front of a live audience of 2000 Rockbåten rock cruise passengers, the first acts confirmed for next year's Sweden Rock Festival were announced. 19 out of a total of around 90 acts were presented in a nine minute video trailer which can be seen here:

Mötley Crüe have announced their retirement after December 31st 2015. This summer, their show at Sweden Rock Festival will be their only in Scandinavia.  

Judas Priest have always received a royal welcome by the Sweden Rock audience, so it is no wonder that their only show in Sweden next summer will be played in Sölvesborg. 

Toto have been around for 35 years, but have never played the Sweden Rock Festival. Next summer, the wait is over!

Backyard Babies put their career on ice indefinitely in the spring of 2010. Soon, they will be back with a new album and their return to the stages will begin at Sweden Rock, where the band has never set foot before. "We are absolutely psyched!" comments front man Nicke Borg and guitarist Dregen. 

HammerFallD-A-D and Dark Tranquillity are Sweden Rock audience favourites and we are happy to have them back.  Thrash metal legends Nuclear Assault have not played in Sweden in more than 20 years but are now making their only Scandinavian appearance next year at Sweden Rock. Nearly 40 years have passed since the original line-up of Lucifer's Friend played together. The group were pioneers of heavy 70´s hard rock - now they are reunited. With John Lawton (ex-Uriah Heep) on vocals, of course.

Also announced are The AngelsExciterRock GoddessH.E.A.TWolfThe QuireboysDelainTorsson and Steve n' Seagulls.

The remaining 70 artists will be announced as they get confirmed throughout the autumn and winter. Tickets and more info can be found at

YNGWIE MALMSTEEN Announces 2015 Australian Tour

Thursday, February 5, 2015
The Very Best from The King of Shred Live on Stage

Yngwie J. Malmsteen has been blowing minds across the globe with his incredible guitar skills and showmanship for over 35 years and in February 2015, Yngwie and his band will be returning to Australia and New Zealand for the first time in a decade to strike awe into the legions of guitar fans.
The Swedish born, but now US based, guitar legend is venerated as one of the founders of the art of guitar shredding. His neo-classical style and the sheer speed of his playing made him the most notable musician in the genre, and he has influenced a new era of music and guitarists alike.
But Yngwie is not known purely for the speed with which his fingers fly up and down the guitar neck. Yes, Malmsteen's playing is fast, but there's a crystal clarity to each of his notes that few can imitate. From his ground breaking early work with Steeler and Alcatraz, through his time alongside Joe Satriani and Steve Vai as a member of G3, to his more recent forays leading the Guitar Gods there are few that can compare to Yngwie J. Malmsteen.
Over more than 25 astounding albums the Grammy nominated Malmsteen has unleashed countless fretboard blistering solos, with both Fender and Marshall honouring him with his own model guitar and amplifier.
Don't miss your chance to see the Master of the Stratocaster live in person, and for those extra dedicated fans there are VIP tickets available granting access to an exclusive Q&A session, and for a few very lucky fans the extremely rare opportunity to meet Yngwie J. Malmsteen in person.
'Far from just being a high-speed and volume artist, his deep knowledge of music theory differentiates him from other shredders.' - High Octane Music News
Yngwie J. Malmsteen Australia & New Zealand Tour Dates:
February 5th
- Powerstation, Auckland, NZ
February 6th - The Metro, Sydney
February 7th - The Forum, Melbourne
February 8th - The Tivoli, Brisbane

MELODICROCKFEST 4 - Start & Set Times Updated - Mecca Withdraw

Thursday, October 2, 2014
Here are all the set times for MelodicRockFest 4 - now just UNDER TWO WEEKS AWAY!!!
Tickets avalable now for just $20/day -
Tickets purchased now will be held at the venue for collection or buy at the door on the days.
There has unfortunately been one last forced change to the lineup, with Mecca & Kevin Chalfant forced to withdraw.
After a long series of conversations with my great buddy, Mecca's Joe Vana, he confirms the news: 
Joe: "After my surgery three weeks ago I noticed the horse voice I had was not getting better....after consulting two different specialist they determined this can be normal when intubated...and could do long term damage to my chords if I push it too after discussing it intently with Andrew we decided it was best if I cancel our appearance at MRF4....

I have been heavily involved with Andrew on a bunch of different fronts helping him prepare for MRF4, and will continue....I just unfortunately cannot one gig a year and I can't do it....not happy and disappointed doesn't even do justice to how I feel...."

Mecca in my mind is irreplaceable but after careful consideration, there is one young hot band that can at least step in at the last minute and I think very much impress folks.
That band is Eighty Six Happiness - featuring Joey Vana, son of Joe and part of MRF3's Mecca lineup.
These guys are going to join the Melodicrock Records family, and I believe in their material and ability 100%, so please show them some love.

THE DEAD DAISIES Announce New Aus and NZ Tour Dates

Thursday, September 18, 2014
The Dead Daisies announce new single, 
Australian headline shows and NZ dates with Jimmy Barnes
(September 18, 2014) � Contemporary classic rockerss, The Dead Daisies, are set to hit the road again and do a number of huge shows across Australia and New Zealand in November and December, along with releasing a second single, "Angel In Your Eyes", from their Face I Love EP.  
The Dead Daisies will headline shows in Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane, and Sydney, as well as a much-anticipated performance in Perth for all their West Aussie fans, playing one show in each city.  The band is also excited to announce that they will be playing some dates with the legendary Jimmy Barnes as special guests on the NZ leg of his upcoming tour.  

After a mind-blowing couple of months touring across the USA and performing to massive crowds in excess of half a million people over the summer, with KISS and Def Leppard in August, and Bad Company and Lynyrd Skynyrd during July, The Dead Daisies are looking forward to getting over to New Zealand with Jimmy Barnes, in late November, before heading home back across the Tasman to play 5 shows in Australia, adding to what has already been an extraordinary year for the band.

"I’m super excited to head back to Australia and to visit some new places!  Playing shows with Jimmy Barnes is always fun and it’s always really inspirational. I enjoy touring with those’s a real family vibe.  Can’t wait to be back in Australia and play some new songs for our fans there!" - Richard Fortus

Set for release in late October is "Angel In Your Eyes", the second single from their latest EP, Face I Love.  "Angel In Your Eyes" is an epic, guitar-fuelled song, accompanied by Stevens powerful vocals, with drums and keys also hitting the mark.

"When the drums kick in you can’t help but start nodding your head to the beat, just before the heavy hi hat rolls in, making the song feel much louder as the vocals ride over the top. The vocals are superb on this EP and Jon Stevens has a naturally soulful voice with a broad range.  Again the keyboards are instrumental in this song providing that subtle melody which is becoming a trade mark of this band." - Rock'n'Load review of "Angel In Your Eyes", Sep 15

Tuesday, September 16, 2014

Four days before his UK tour kicks off, Schenker will headline Planet Rockstock Festival at Trecco Bay in South Wales on Saturday 6th December

Scottish vocalist Doogie White, who co-wrote the album with Schenker, soars across every song, and stamps his enthusiastic personality with every note and phrase. Wayne Findlay adds another dimension to the dynamic, classic Schenker sound with his Dean 7 string guitar and keyboard orchestrations.
Bridge the Gap is a thunderous, explosive collection of brand new songs steeped in shades of dark and light. Musically and lyrically, the new album shows a re-energised guitarist at the top of his game, surrounded by top drawer musicians.

SURVIVOR Cancel All Tour Dates

Wednesday, September 10, 2014
In the wake of the tragic passing of vocalist Jimi Jamison, Survivor have reportedly cancelled all future tour dates. Nothing has been posted to the band's sites as yet. But this from:
"The latest tour for ’80s rock band Survivor, which was slated to kick off at the Parker Arts, Culture & Events Center (PACE) on Sept. 12, has been canceled after the death of lead singer Jimi Jamison, according to Parker Arts.
It was only after “much deliberation” from band representatives that the tour was nixed, PACE said in a press release this morning. Jamison suffered a heart attack and died on Aug. 31 at the age of 63.
“We are saddened by this tragic news, and our hearts go out to all members of the band and to Jimi’s family,” said Elaine Mariner, Cultural Director for the PACE Center.
Survivor, which began performing in 1977, is the band behind such radio hits as “Eye of the Tiger” and “I Can’t Hold Back.” Jamison joined in 1984 before leaving to start a solo career, then rejoined in 2011. The band played on September 6th in California, and after a two week hiatus, had planned on four US dates, before heading overseas for the European leg of their tour, according to a press release.
In addition to its PACE Center concert, the band has canceled all remaining U.S. and European tour dates in September and October."

The tour will begin with a Scotland Exclusive at Bannerman's, Edinburgh on Dec 4th and will then visit Newcastle, Grimsby, Bolton, Sheffield, Chester, London and Birmingham before closing in Swansea, Wales on Dec 14th.

The Mr. Big front man will be performing a crowd pleasing mix of his solo material along with Mr. Big hits that fans all over the world have grown to love throughout their career.

Tues 9 Dec '' The Corporation ' Sheffield

Thurs 11 Dec ' The Livee Rooms ' Chester

Fri 12 Dec ' The Underworld ' London

Sat 13 Dec ' The Oobleck ' Birmingingham

Sun 14 Dec ' Static ' Swansea

'My bags are packed and I'm ready to go; plane ticket to the UK'. check, Acoustic guitar'check, money for beer'r'. Check, EM/MR. BIG fan's?' he said 'Anywhere, everywhere, up and over, sideways, down' theree's no place I 'd rather Rock than with you in the UK.'

In 1985 and 1987 Eric released 'Eric Martin' and 'I'm only fooling myself' solo efforts, which are lathered with Eric's signature soulful voice and candid lyrics. 

In 1988-89, Eric would team up with Billy Sheehan, Pat Torpey and Paul Gilbert to form Mr. Big.  They would enjoy enormous success with the release of 6 studio albums, numerous hit singles and 6 top-selling live cd's. All combined, worldwide sales top the 7 million mark.  Eric's third solo album, 'Somewhere in the middle' was written during the two-year hiatus from Mr. Big and released in 1998 in Asia and Europe.  During the summer of 2001, Eric and the rest of the Mr. Big guys released their last effort, 'Actual Size.' In between promoting and preparing for Mr. Big's 2002 'Farewell Tour', Eric continued to record songs for his fourth solo cd. He promised a return to his 'rawk roots' and he definitely did so with the album, 'I'm Goin' Sane' which gathered excellent critics and was released in Asia, Europe and The US in late 2002. After the success of a Japan tour, a European 'Gods Festival' and a 23 city US tour, Eric decided to go back into the studio to record 'Pure,' a EP that covers his hits in an unplugged and stripped acoustic form.

In early 2004 brought Eric back into the studio to record 'Destroy All Monsters' which would be released in Japan, Europe, The US and the most recent, South America. The album sound is something Eric calls 'Distorted Pop' with a focus on his rock roots.

In 2008 Eric joined forces with an all-star group including Mark Slaughter, The Nelson Brothers, Jack Blades and Kelly Keagy to form the supergroup, Scrap Metal.  Scrap Metal plays shows whenever each guy has some time off of their individual careers.

Mr. Big regrouped with all original members for a worldwide reunion tour in 2009.  They had so much fun that they decided to release a new album. 'What If' dropped in 2010 and reviewers raved about the 4 members creating their original sound with a current feel.  The guys set out on another world tour and are currently writing for their next album.

Moving to more recent times, in 2012, one of the largest rock operas in the world contacted Eric to be featured on their new album.  Avantasia is a German based rock opera born to Edguy front man, Tobias Sammet. Eric traveled for six months with Avantasia covering Asia, Europe, South America and Canada.  Eric has been asked to join the band for their next tour starting at the infamous Waken open-air festival in front of 80,000 concert goers this summer.

'KEEP CALM & UNPLUG Your TV set, your kids, the bullshit.. Don't let life get in the way, EM unplugged in the UK in December'.See you then! '

Ticket prices regionally start from '10.00 (London '15.00). Please check with your local venue box office for further details or visit Eric's official website
