Bands, Failure, Music, Wondering Crazy »
A few weeks back, I’m talking to Darius and he says to me, “Dude, Failure is doing an L.A. show.” It shortly turned into, “Dude, Failure is playing the El Rey.” Then, “Dude, Failure sold out the El Rey in minutes.” Last night was Failure’s first show in a decade and a half, so everything came full circle. Now, this band who was mentioned to us, almost in passing, at the end of an All Knowing Force interview, has taken music center stage in both our lives.
Motley Crue, Music »
“Like their music or not, they brought it for 30+ years. They always did it their way, and now, they’re going out on top. Motley was one of my first loves, and when I look back on it, seeing Dr. Feelgood on MTV was likely my gateway into exploring heavier music. What a ride it was, and I have nothing but love, respect, and admiration for their career.”
Bands, Buckcherry, Music, Music Interviews »
This interview has never appeared on our new site. It was conducted back in 2006, right at the time 15 was exploding. Unfortunately, they’ve not been able to duplicate the success of 15 on their last three albums. I’ve had the pleasure of seeing the band live numerous times, in venues such as the Middle East in Cambridge, MA, the Webster in Hartford, Webster Hall, and Irving Plaza. In a live setting, they’re excellent, but with the quality of the last three albums, I’m not really looking forward to what comes next.
Bands, Eve 6, Headline, Headline3, Music Interviews »
We encourage all our listeners to check out this interview, and more important, get out to an Eve 6 show. “Oh, aren’t they that ‘Inside Out’ band?” Or, “Didn’t they play that ‘Here’s to the Night’ song?” Forget that. Their live show will make you forget those songs even exist. It doesn’t get much more infectious than Eve 6. Masterful live.
Headline, Headline4, Music, Music Interviews, Soul Asylum »
I remember purchasing Let Your Dim Light Shine in the mid-90′s. By then, they weren’t cool anymore. Bush was dominating the airwaves. Korn was popularizing nu-metal. Maybe “Misery” was a little silly. Maybe it was too much too fast. Still, somehow, Dave Pirner, through his goofy lyrics and odd demeanor managed to find a place in my musical heart. Their latest album, Delayed Reaction was released in 2012. Inside, you’ll find some commentary and an interview we did with Dave before Soul Asylum’s fall 2013 co-headlining run with Fountains of Wayne.
Headline, Headline5, Music, Music Interviews, Sponge »
Almost 20 years after Rotting Pinata went gold, Sponge frontman Vinnie Dombroski sat down with All Knowing Force to discuss their seventh and latest studio album, Stop the Bleeding. After seeing them twice this past summer: once opening the 2013 Summerland Tour, and once headlining in Boston, I can safely reiterate something I’ve believed all along: this is one of the most criminally underrated rock bands in history. Enjoy the interview.
Bands, Music, Music Interviews, Surrender The Fall »
It’s not everyday a band comes around that piques my interest. Memphis rockers Surrender The Fall don’t reinvent the wheel, but they exude unrivaled passion and honesty on their first LP “Burn In The Spotlight.” I want you all to take a listen to this interview and give them a few minutes of your time.
Cinderella, Music Interviews »
Cinderella isn’t as well known as some of their 80′s contemporaries, but they definitely are some of the most respected. While bands like Poison and Faster Pussycat reveled in simplicity, Cinderella’s songwriting possessed a maturity foreign to the rest of the genre. With his 2013 solo record, , Tom Keifer has released an album that make the 80′s seem like a distant memory.
