    Brian Forsythe, KIX’s guitarist, had told me that their sound check was at 4:30 p.m., and I was hoping to get there early and maybe we could grab lunch and catch up. Brian and I have been friends since 1985 when I thumbed down to Boston in the pouring rain to see them play on… Read more →

    I married a hardcore KISS fan, a man who judges all rock concerts by the fun, fire, and spectacle that is a KISS concert. He has been worshipping at the God of Thunder altar since 1977, and has managed to see the band seven times over the years. While seven KISS concerts is far, very… Read more →

    The day was just about perfect for an outdoor concert – not too hot, not too cold, and not raining like the last show I shot here – and by the way the audience filed in, I wasn’t the only one who noticed the beautiful weather. This was another show with an early start, and… Read more →

    In 1975, a world where the majority of you were not even a twinkle in your Daddy’s eye, I asked my Mom if I could go to a KISS concert. The answer was a resounding NO because I was too young. Granted I was only 13, but her house, her rules and all that. I… Read more →

    I remember back in the 80s when I was a “Metal Kid” – I Ate, Slept, Breathed Heavy Metal – and to me everything else sucked. If you made fun of Metal, I was gonna fight you. Ha ha. My brother, a year younger and with a bit larger spectrum in music genres, told me… Read more →

    When you have arguably the most famous progressive rock band in the world, you are going to have tribute bands and Pink Floyd has a few. This was my first time seeing The Australian Pink Floyd Show, and I have mixed emotions about it. It’s hard not to compare bands when you’ve seen another similar… Read more →

    Anyone complaining that the 2016 Waterfront summer concert series lacked variety is just looking for something to complain about.  Bangor’s Darling’s Waterfront Pavilion has been ripe with performances spanning from country to classic rock to metal this year, and smack in the middle was Rob Thomas and Counting Crows, in some ways a stand out… Read more →
