Michael Monroe stormed onto the stage with his band opening his show with “Trick Of The Wrist” , one of many songs he performed to promote his latest release “Sensory Overdrive”. He twirled the mic stand in pure Steven Tyler form, nearly knocking out some of his band in the process.

Within spitting distance to The Viper Room, The Whisky, The Roxy, Rainbow and Key Club, the (almost) last independent book store in West Hollywood is Book Soup. Rockers who write make this a necessary stop on any promo tour and  BS knows which side the bread is buttered on. It’s normal to see a line out front.

A weekend trip to Northern Cali to see Elliot Randall open for two living legends brought an unexpected surprise that left us flabbergasted. “It’s Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival this weekend too.” Oh really? What’s that? The answer is a killer!
