From the land of mountains, cheese, chocolate and tiny little knives comes the Rock Police! Swiss hard rock band Hysteria issued their Rock Police EP on March 14, 2020. And it’s a great 80s inspired slab of high energy riffy rock! In 2013 Hysteria was formed by Arni (guitar), Manu (bass/vocals) and Mäse (drums) and […]
Canada’s THE WILD! truly are a force to reckon with. They’ve grown a lot in popularity and recognition with good reason, but there’s still so very many not in the know. The band, based out of Kelowna, B.C. launched in 2012. Releasing their first video in 2014 for the song “Roadhouse” brought them airplay on […]
The Meister is at it again! Well, another Riot Radio, yes, but I meant travel. He’s off on the Monsters of Rock Cruise on a boatload of bands, babes and booze…the supreme definition of debauchery! But there will be zero breaks in our content this time around. Bad internet connections can’t hold us back. A […]
Coming out of Salvador, Bahia, Brazil is Electric Poison. Unfortunately, they had not crossed my path when CGCM Podcast recorded our Around the World in 80 Episodes Brazil Edition. They just reached me only a couple of weeks ago via their debut full-length Live Wire issued in November of 2019. Ahead of that, the 2014 […]
Welcome to CGCM Podcast‘s Riot Radio! The Riot Radio concept: CGCM brings you a podcast episode with less talk and more rock. Terrestrial radio has become homogenized. Satellite radio falling to the same fate. Remember the days when radio played bands like Helix and AC/DC etc and not just the hits, but deep cuts and […]
HEADBANGERS OPEN AIR Festival in Germany finalized their lineup today. Adding to an already loaded roster, we now see additions of Tom Keifer and Pentagram. CGCM‘s own Rich “The Meister” Dillon will definitely be onsite (he’d better get accommodations and tickets and such sorted soon!) for his first HOA. But, anyone knowing him could have […]

The 2020 CGCM Sweden Rock Trio: Rich “The Meister” Dillon is all set for his eighth return engagement to SWEDEN ROCK FESTIVAL […]
I love high energy hard drivin’ Rock n’ Roll. It’s my go-to style. I love the riffs, the foot-stomping, the steady drums. It’s my drug of ultimate choice. Bands like Airbourne, Danko Jones, Rhino Bucket and Broken Teeth among many others are all perennial faves. In January of 2017, I somehow crossed paths with such […]
