    News: Ray Wilson releases second CD Makes Me Think Of Home in October
    Progressive Rock Makes Me Think Of Home, the 6th solo studio album from former Stiltskin and Genesis frontman, Ray Wilson, will be released on 7th October. This release comes hot on the heels of Song For A Friend, an acoustic album released earlier this year and which garnered great reviews.

    Makes Me Think Of Home is a mix of pop, rock and prog which showcases Ray's remarkable voice. The title track sees Ray looking back to his days living in Scotland, a country he left after finding love with a Polish dancer. He moved to Poznan 8 years ago, and in this ambitious and very moving track he reflects on his years trying to find peace and happiness in Edinburgh.

    News: THE DEAD DAISIES announce new single Join Together for July 22nd
    General Indomitable Hard Rocker's barnstorming new single 'Join Together' released July 22nd on Spitfire Music / SPV

    he Dead Daisies blazing new single, 'Join Together', released today, July 22nd on Spitfire Music / SPV, is an uplifting new incarnation of the Who's anthem 'Join Together', with excellent extra modern elements and tons of vibe added to the original. Vocalist John Corabi states that "We wanted to do 'Join Together' 'cause it's obviously a classic Who song. I just love the power of the guitar and bass when it kicks in with the heavy riff on the second verse... Always have. The vocals are pretty easy to get the audience involved, and it's been a crowd favorite when we play it live. We knew the minute we started jamming, it was going to sound great!!! It's our tip of the hat to a LEGENDARY CLASSIC BAND... You may think of us as "Rockers" but, at the end of the day we're just huge music FANS... Just like our audience!!!!

    'Join Together, the second single to be taken from these illustrious hard rockers' keenly anticipated third album, 'Make Some Noise', due out on August 5th, is being issued as the band's fist-pumping rallying call to the reasonable people of the world to join together despite the division caused by all the recent worldwide atrocities.

    The Dead Daisies, who are set to star on the main stages of three UK festivals in the next two days – Ramblin Man in Kent PLUS Rock And Blues in Derby tomorrow and Steelhouse on Sunday – have lined up a ten date co-headline UK tour with The Answer in November. Don't miss the chance to catch the blistering rock 'n' roll experience of both of these explosive bands live at the following concerts:-


    November 12th ABERDEEN Lemon Tree
    November 13th GLASGOW Classic Grand
    November 14th SHEFFIELD Corporation
    November 15th NEWCASTLE Riverside
    November 16th HOLMFIRTH Picturedrome
    November 18th DONCASTER Diamond Lounge
    November 19th BIRMINGHAM Academy 2
    November 20th BRIGHTON Concorde 2
    November 22nd NORWICH Waterfront
    November 23rd LONDON Electric Ballroom

    News: THE DEAD DAISIES INCENDIARY NEW STUDIO ALBUM MAKE SOME NOISE UNLEASHED AUG 5TH
    General The Dead Daisies' superlative new studio album 'Make Some Noise', set for release on Spitfire Music / SPV on August 5th, is a vital, vibrant and utterly uplifting opus, which way more than lives up to the legendary 'classic third LP syndrome' epithet.

    'Make Some Noise', packed with huge hooks, giant, intense guitar riffs and glorious, distinctive vocals, celebrates the kind of classic rock 'n' roll that has gone from strength to strength ever since it emerged in the early 1970's and that sweaty clubs, concert halls and stadiums the world over would be impossible to imagine without. Each of the joyously performed, perfectly crafted, melody drenched 12 songs instinctively aims straight for the centre of the listener's autonomic nervous system, totally enveloping the heart and soul and compelling them to move to the irresistible rhythm.

    News: Jizzy Pearl-Love Hate UK Tour Wasted In America 25th Anniversary
    General Jizzy Pearl/Love/Hate Announce 'Wasted In America' 25th Anniversary Celebrations With UK Tour March 2017

    The year was 1992—not so long ago? Actually, it was nigh on 25 years ago, before kids and car payments, before growing up, it was still long hair and staying up all night, listening to your favourite music and not having to pay for it the next morning.

    And then there was the rock band, Love/Hate.

    Out and about with Ozzy Osbourne on his 'No More Tears' European tour. Somewhere in the middle of the mayhem, an early morning knock came on the tour bus door. Always the first one up, frontman Jizzy Pearl opened the door a crack and peered out, "Congratulations" said an Ozzy roadie, "Your new record just broke the Top 20!" That record was 'WASTED IN AMERICA', second in line and coming fast on the heels of their successful first record 'BLACKOUT IN THE RED ROOM'.

    The year 2017 marks the 25th anniversary of 'Wasted In America' and Jizzy Pearl will celebrate by playing the entire album in its entirety, a FIRST!

    Concerts: Joe Bonamassa – Glasgow Clyde Auditorium 3rd July
    Concert Reviews

    Even in a genre known for celebrating its heroes and plundering their greatest moments for maximum effect, for an artist as renowned as Joe Bonamassa to put together a set that doesn't contain any of his own material, or even the covers that over the years he's made his own, could be seen as a risk. The reason Joe is in the cosy but spacious Clyde Auditorium, one of the few venues that can make a crowd of three thousand feel intimate, is to celebrate the British bluesmen that, in his own words, he wouldn't be where he is without: those men being Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page and Eric Clapton.

    Concerts: Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow @ Genting Arena, Birmingham 06/25/2016
    Heavy Metal With just three shows to mark his return to Rock after an absence of some two decades, the legendary Ritchie Blackmore was always going to be leaving his audience wanting more. Fans travelled from across Europe and beyond for the sole arena show in Birmingham to witness Blackmore and his new band serve up a real treat with a near two hour set that encompassed the very best of his Deep Purple and Rainbow songbook. Sea of Tranquility's Dean Pedley was on hand at the Genting Arena to see a show many thought would never happen.

    Concerts: ZZ Top @ O2 Academy, Birmingham 06/23/2016
    General Making a fleeting visit to the UK to appear at Glastonbury Festival, ZZ Top also managed to squeeze in a warm-up gig at Birmingham's O2 Academy, quickly selling out the relatively cosy venue that houses just a few thousand. And the little old band from Texas didn't disappoint with a no frills ninety minute burst of perennial crowd pleasers from their 70's blues boogie heyday right through to 2012's acclaimed return to form La Futura.
