Concert Review: Sno-Core 2005 3/6/05

Before I get to the evening’s show, please allow me some thoughts regarding the Sno-Core tours. This is the second incarnation of Sno-Core, the first was the original line-up back in 2000, and what a collection of acts it was! There was the experimental Mike Patton (Faith No More) with his new act Mr. Bungle, next up was Puerto Rican ... Read More »

Dio – Evil Or Divine DVD Review

Dio has rocked for a long, long time, Now it’s time for him to pass the torch. You’re too old to rock, no more rockin’ for you. We’re takin’ you to a home, But we will sing a song about you. ~ from "Dio", by Tenacious D The first time I heard that song from Tenacious D‘s self-titled album of ... Read More »

Concert Review: Local Metal show 2/25/05

First and foremost, I would like to say to all of you concertgoers, please support your local music scene. There is a lot of talent out there just waiting to be discovered, plus you never know who might be the next big thing. In the past few weeks I have been to a couple of all local metal concerts and ... Read More »

Concert Review: Tesla: Five Man Acoustical Jam 2/23/05

You read that right, this is a concert review, not a review of a 15 year old album. Tesla is currently on the road doing an acoustic tour, and I finally get the chance to see these guys perform live. I have been a fan of theirs ever since their second album, “The Great Radio Controversy.” The tour is named ... Read More »

Gov’t Mule – The Deepest End DVD Review

The Deepest End is the culmination of a three year tribute to the late Gov’t Mule bassist and founding member Allen Woody, who died prematurely in August of 2000, at the age of 44. In 2001, the band’s two other founding members, guitarist/vocalist Warren Haynes, and drummer Matt Abts chose to rise above the tragedy of losing their friend and ... Read More »

Gary Moore – Live At Monsters Of Rock DVD Review

Gary Moore finally throws his long-time fans a bone, by temporarily returning to his 1980’s hard-rock roots. Moore had essentially sworn off hard rock over the last decade in favor of the blues-rock hybrid he has concentrated on since the release of Still Got The Blues in 1990. In 2002, Moore released Scars, a much more rock-oriented album, than his ... Read More »

Queen – Live At Wembley Stadium DVD Review

Queen fans have a lot to be thankful for recently. Over the last couple of years the band has released two great concert DVDs, both in excellent two-disk packages, and have also re-released the legendary We Will Rock You DVD with a much needed DTS audio remaster. Live At Wembley Stadium was the first of these two new concert videos ... Read More »

Triumph – A Night Of Triumph (Live) DVD Review

AHHHH, the rock and roll glory days of the 80’s. A time when long-forgotten bands like Triumph ruled the stage. A time when men could wear polka-dotted spandex and mascara and still be cool. Man, I miss those days. The early 80’s was when I saw the lions-share of my concerts, when bands like Triumph, Judas Priest, and the Scorpions, ... Read More »

Concert Review: Jolie Holland at Little Brothers

On February 8th, the night before I would see her in concert, Jolie Holland told me that “nobody makes money on their first tour.” As I sit in Little Brothers, a small club in Columbus, Ohio, I can see her point. The bar is nearly empty with only seven people including myself waiting for the show to start. There are ... Read More »
