Quarantine Podcast Edition - interview w/ Will Boyett

Will Boyett was a studio photographer in the late 70's. When a young rock band on the L.A. circuit approached him about taking photos, the drummer in that band was Tommy Lee. This interview traces the beginning of Motley Crue's history as told by Will, who was there with his camera capturing the first handful of shows the band played in Hollywood, California. His recently published book is titled Motley Crue: The Early Years. Listen here to find out more.

Fire In The Ashtray

Ready for some fun? Those of you know Britt Pennella as the main writer/bass player from Blackboard Jungle. He's got a new project in 2020 that brings out the best of his Prince influences
and melds it together with rock 'n roll attitude, as aptly found on the song "You Make Me Feel Like An Asshole." The band is called Fire In The Ashtray. Put on your red shoes.

Watch the video here:

"Good Thing" - Fire In The Ashtray


Three things overheard and overused at the Monsters Of Rock Cruise X 2020 - "Make some noise," "everybody scream," "say yeah." If this was your band and you're still using this tired ass cliche banter on stage, it's time to retire or time for you to watch and take notes from Extreme, and KIX!
Gary Cherone and Steve Whiteman respectively know how to perform, entertain, and command the audience's attention. Both bands were the highlight of the cruise. Hands down.
Great sets also by Winger, The Quireboys, Tesla, and Lizzy Borden who gave us a show that would make Alice Cooper proud.
Mr. Personality Chip Z'Nuff was in full glory, bringing all the E'Z'N hits and favourites like "Baby Loves You," "Wheels," and joined by Alex Kane on guitar to complete the line up.
Faster Pussycat returned, the only band who has played the cruise each and every year. Great to see Taime out n about in Cozumel.
Great sets also by Winger, The Quireboys, Tesla, and Lizzy Borden who gave us a show that would make Alice Cooper proud.
Final night highlight watching George Lynch do a drunken James Brown karaoke.

Faster Pussycat 6/28/19 Hollywood

Taime and the gang kicked off their summer tour in Hollywood at The Whisky on 6/28/19. The band was in top form and on point from start to finish. Taime totally enjoying being on stage. New guitar player filling in should be a regular addition to the band, solid player and humble with no posing around. Highlight was an unexpected cover of INXS' "Don't Change."
