Classic Clip of the Week!
Shotgun Messiah hailed from Sweden and moved to Hollywood California. A band I rate nearly as highly as Skid Row, yet extremely under rated, these guys made a self titled debut album that was all Poison like glam rock, then moved to a more hard rock sound with this album 'Second Coming', before moving to an industrial metal sound with their final record 'Violent New Breed'. Like Skid Row, all their albums were different with a real progression in sound, yet all albums were really solid. Tim Skold who moved to vocals for the second album ended up in Marilyn Manson's band for awhile and currently has a new solo album out titled 'The Undoing'. Harry Cody K. Cody remains one of the most under rated guitarists of the hard rock scene. This video 'Heartbreak Blvd' is pure early 90s hard rock bliss. Enjoy...

'Disappearing In Airports' is released today and if the song below 'Vexatious' is anything to go by, it should be a cracking album..

RIP Prince 1958 - 2016
So sad to hear of another legend passing away too soon. Although not necessarily classed as a rock musician, Prince was hugely underrated as a guitarist and influenced so many rock musicians. The guy was an immense talent and easily one of my favourite artists from outside the rock genre. Incredible loss to the music world. Attached is his performance from the 2007 Halftime Super Bowl show which will go down as possibly the greatest ever halftime show the NFL will ever see.
