Y&T – Holmfirth Picturedrome, UK (Concert Review)

Why? WHY? A million words have been written about how good Y&T are live in concert and that’s because every one of them is true. Witnessing Dave Menketti and the guys at the final show of their UK tour was a true privilege. One of the great mysteries of our time is why Y&T never became true megastars. That question still […]

ROYAL REPUBLIC – Glasgow Garage (Live Review)

The band D.A.D once sang that the best damned parties are thrown at “The Rim Of Hell”. After Sunday night I think there is a very good chance that Royal Republic are the house band! They created a fun party atmosphere with people dancing, singing, swaying and rowing imaginary boats at points! Almost a normal […]

BATTLE BEAST – Ottawa 2019 (Review & Photo Gallery)

Seeing that Finnish band Battle Beast signed on to tour North America with Kamelot and Sonata Arctica both Shawn and I were interested. To be honest, my band out of those three is the stage setters of Battle Beast. Personally, I’m not much into Kamelot or Sonata Arctica. But is it worth the ticket cost […]

DANKO JONES – Sweden Rock 2019 (Blog & Photos)

The first time I heard Danko Jones “Bounce” I was overtaken. His sound was so different, so fresh. It had a funk to it but was also balls-out hard rock. The song used to play on the radio in the kitchen at work or in my car while I was delivering pizzas thanks to the […]

BEXATRON – Rivoli Toronto (Concert Review)

Since first hearing the album’s lead-off track, “Get Out of My Tree”, it’s catchy hum along chorus will not leave my grey matter. The album arrived at the doorstep of CGCM Central and our staff writer and all-around good guy Trevor “Psychoone” McDougall jumped on an album review. Check it out here: Bexatron – Hey […]

GREEN JELLŸ – Sweden Rock 2019 (Blog & Photos)

Sometimes it’s good to try new things. Get out of your comfort zone. I did just that at Sweden Rock 2019. All hell-bent for leather on seeing Saxon on Saturday, June 8, 2019, at the festival, that plan dissipated surprisingly easy. It was suggested to me that “you’ve seen Saxon many times”. Indeed I have, […]

BURNING WITCHES – Sweden Rock 2019 (Blog & Photos)

Once again the first band of the day proves how Sweden Rock should be started! They again, like The Wild! yesterday, hold the “Best Band of the Day” title! I present Burning Witches, a quintet of ladies hailing from Switzerland. Springing to life (or wisping out of a cauldron perhaps), Burning Witches started out in […]
