Chickenfoot – III Review

Two albums in and CHICKENFOOT really feel like a band rather than a studio project and I can only hope that they hang around for a few more albums in the future, III is not a perfect album, but fans of the first disc will surely love it and anybody

Raygun Rebels – Bring Me Home Review

The band’s sound draws influence from the sunset strip sound of the eighties with some early day GUNS ‘N’ ROSES and some MOTLEY CRUE and even a slight, slight hint of POISON, but where things get interesting is the inclusion of some obvious influence from some seventies rockers like AEROSMITH and NEW YORK DOLLS…
