Look what glam dragged in. GB returns with an all new holiday episode, so unwrap this present for some surprises. We start off with the art-glam stylings of David Devant & His Spirit Wife. Circa 1996, when Suede was coming up through the trash, My Life Story were getting suited and booted, and Nancy Boy checked into the deep sleep motel. "Cookie" savors Roxy here, for your pleasure and mine.
Rewind 8 years prior to the Sunset Strip as we unearth the band SOHO. They formerly went by the name of Radio City, guess they loved NYC, and rightfully so. The band delivered their demo to me at the time, containing only two songs - "Backstreet Lover" and a gem of a ballad that you'll hear now called "Captured." Not much else is known. Maybe they changed their name to Tribeca.

It seems like Jean Beauvoir has seen and done it all.  An integral part of New York City’s rich music history of the 70’s with The Plasmatics.  One thing he’s most proud as he reflects on that band is “we transcended genre, transcended color, being a black bass player with a blonde mohawk in a band where things were really segregated for one thing I think was an important point of The Plasmatics.  When people left the show, it was something they’d never forget.” 
Then he goes solo with Drums Along The Mohawk, which might’ve thrown his fans for a loop, but clearly proved he had ambitions beyond punk.  “This thing of black artists only doing R&B, I didn’t believe in that.  Even the blonde mohawk kind of played this racelessness opinion that I had in something I wanted to portray,” he says.  Soon after,
bands like King’s X, Living Color, Dan Reed Network all emerged.  Jean believes he helped pave that road.
Find out the details of how his collaborations with Paul Stanley came to be.  Songwriting still at the core of Jean’s work, recently reaching a #1 last year on Billboard’s world chart with Korean recording artist Jonghyun.

Joey C. Jones could have easily been one of those names spoken in the same sentence alongside Vince Neil, Bret Michaels, Jani Lane, when talking about L.A. rock n' roll frontmen.  He had all the labels approaching him and his former bands.  Enigma, Atlantic, Warners, producers like Tom Werman wanting to work with him.  His story is one of those crazy rock n' roll rides where one silly mistake or bad management led to heartache.  In this podcast he discusses the sweet little victories of Sweet Savage..."selling out 2500 seat rooms all over the Southwest just based on our promo photos" he tells us.  And how Gene Simmons was the first guy to approach them for his start up label Simmons Records.  But there are some glories along the way... co-writing and records 10 songs with Rick Neilsen and Robin Zander is not a bad thing.  Hell, it's a great thing.  And Joey is getting ready to finally release the record that's been in the vaults.  Saturday night, March 5th, Joey will have a live stream of a show featuring his band Shock Tu, playing to a 5000 capacity crowd in Texas.  Check his site for further info.  Right now, this Spring episode awaits.  Download the interview here.

GB FEB 2016 - Interview w/KK of TAZ

Practically every musician we’ve interviewed on Glambone has remained being a musician in some form.  But what happened to all the Sunset Strip bands that reigned supreme that never went on to great heights beyond a local level?  Do they still yearn for that time, is there bitterness about not making it, how many have gotten out of music completely?  Taz seemed poised to contend with any major label act at the time.  But after the band called it quits, for their singer KK, that was basically the end of the pursuit.  He says “Taz was it for me, those guys were my brothers, we went to battle.  Taz was there for a short amount of time, in an era that was awesome to be part of.  When I left, I couldn’t see again being on stage with anyone else, it wouldn’t have been in my heart, I just couldn’t do it.”  And while he can own those words now, he’s ok with that.  Life has taken him on another journey.  Listen on to hear his story.  It’s a Glambone episode about the good times before and after.  Download it here.

GB JAN 2016 interview with Jerry Jaffe

“There were all these great characters,” is how Jerry Jaffe describes his music industry cohorts during the 70’s & 80’s when he was A&R at Polygram, and later artist management.  Those were days when companies would hire someone based on their knowledge and passion for music, and the college music coarse requisite of today on your resume wasn’t even a blimp on your qualifications.  There’s the new HBO series Vinyl, produced by Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger based on the record industry of that time, which depicts these characters.  So you went to Belmont, big deal, go fuck yourself.  The heart and integrity, the search for true talent, the nights out in the clubs, the makings of deals because you’d put your ass on the line for that band is something associated with the Jimmy Iovine’s, Tommy Mottola’s, Tom Werman’s, and Tom Zutaut’s of the world.  Insert Jerry Jaffe to that list.  Bon Jovi performed at his wedding.  In this podcast episode, he recounts the time Bongiovi’s demo tape was handed to him by Derek Shulman, which led to the band’s signing, in addition to Jerry’s suggestion of dropping the “g” in the name.  1984 also saw the release of one of his other signings, Candy’s “Whatever Happened To Fun.”  It’s a record he’s proud to have had a hand in.  While Jerry went on to sign acts like Jesus & Mary Chain and others, we focus more on this episode with his tenure of hard rock & glam bands.  His involvement with Kiss through 4 of their records, Danny Goldberg enlisting him in his camp in favor of the band taking the make up off, showcasing Electric Angels for Jason Flom at Atlantic, and how his other band Nancy Boy took flak for being male models.
Cut through the static and listen to this music veteran tell it how it is.  Get it here.
