Phil X (The Drills, Bon Jovi)

It was awesome to chat with legendary guitarist Phil X this morning about the latest single and video from The Drills 'Right On The Money'. Another ball tearing rock song from The Drills, with a new album Stupid Good Lookings Vol 2 potentially being released later this year. Whilst 2020 hasn't quite been the year for Phil X and Bon Jovi it was planned to be. For fans of Phil X & The Drills , there's new music to check out, the Phil X App which I encourage you all to download, with lots of great video content being uploaded weekly. Particularly if you want to find out more around Phil's work with the likes of Daughtry, Chris Cornell, Gavin DeGraw, Avril, Tommy Lee, Rob Zombie, Alice Cooper there's some great stories that Phil shares...yep, the man's a legend! Enjoy this chat and I hope Phil and I kick your ass with this interview in 17 minutes...

Toby Rand (Ashen Moon)

One of the great things I enjoy about Rock Lives Here is discovering new bands and AshenMoon are easily one of the most exciting new bands I've heard in the last couple of years. New band by name, however with some familiar band members.... Gary Beers, bass player of INXS, Toby Rand, the voice of Juke Kartel and Jimmy Khoury, the secret weapon guitarist from Beth Hart's band amongst others. AshenMoon have just released the double A-side single Dustbowl/Mosquito and I recently had the pleasure of chatting with Toby Rand about all things AshenMoon, current life in lockdown over in Los Angeles where Toby is based.

Deen Castronovo (The Dead Daisies)

THE DEAD DAISIES have unleashed their latest track and video "UNSPOKEN" off the forthcoming new studio album, Holy Ground. With tours and releases around the world being postponed due to current global issues, the band felt that with such an amazing album waiting in the wings, they needed to get some new music out. With Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee Glenn Hughes joining the band, it's now a leaner four-piece outfit that has brought a new urgency and vigour to their overall sound and vibe. Glenn's primal rhythms, Deen Castronovo's equal parts rage and prowess on the drums, the powerful and complimentary fretwork of guitar virtuoso Doug Aldrich and the solid rhythm guitar foundation of David Lowy has elevated the band up there alongside the pantheon of legendary rock bands. I had the absolute pleasure of chatting with legendary drummer Deen Castronovo about the upcoming new album, having Glenn Hughes join the band last year and of course about Deen's last few years in the band.

Riff Raiders (Jenni & Marty Powell)

Melbourne classic rock champions, Riff Raiders have just released their second album Rock N Roll Daydream. The album features eleven rock anthem tracks that successfully showcase and match the vocal range of powerhouse frontwoman Jenni Powell with Marty Powell's song-crafting, guitar and production talents. Music to definitely flatten the curve to! Rock N Roll Daydream comes hot on the heels of their recent Double-A side single Best Day Ever / Loaded Gun which was released with accompanying twin videos. New single, Samantha Jones, tells the true story of a fan who left a vinyl copy of Riff Raiders first album on a train, and the awesome efforts Sammy J went to to get it back to him. Yeah, she's doin' it right!

Julien Jorgensen (Rev Theory)

Over a decade ago, Rev Theory were one of the rulers of modern rock, with Hell Yeah & Voices being songs you couldn't escape, even down here in Australia. 2017 saw the band call it quits after a fast and furious decade, however in 2020, that has all changed, with the return of Rev Theory and an exciting new era of the band having commenced. Just as the band embraced technology and social media back in the mid 2000's to propel their fame, expect the same in 2020 and beyond. I recently caught up with Julian Jorgensen to talk past, present & future of Rev Theory and find out who exactly is involved in the band in 2020. Be sure to check out the band's latest single, a remix version of One which was released a few months back - available on all the usual streaming platforms from 13th March.

Herm Kovac (Ted Mulry Gang)

"Music fans are in for a real treat this March as WANSTOCK returns to suburban Victoria with an enviable glam-rock line-up. The third year for the mini-festival, WANSTOCK launched as organiser Geoff Wansbrough's ode to the days of Woodstock and bringing back 70s hey day of festival fun. A long-time Ted Mulry Gang fan, his vision for the 2020 event is around the great glam-rockers, including Get Rocked, Kings of Oz, City Sharps, The Day Dreamers and Stonetrip. Geoff cut his teeth in the great days of the pub rock era working as a roadie, and that passion for the music industry has never wavered. When it came to putting together the line-up for this year's event, he wanted to ensure there was something to please everyone. "There is the glam rock of TMG (Ted Mulry Gang) and Get Rocked / Hush," he says. "Some covers with Kings of Oz, high energy rock from the Day Dreamers to the rock and roll of the City Sharps and Stonetrip. The basic premise is let's have some fun! We should all have fun while we still can, and recreate some magnificent pub rock, as well as experiencing some great up-and-coming bands!" TMG were a cornerstone of the 70s rock scene. Label mates with AC/DC on Alberts, TMG helped shape the guitar-driven sound of Aussie rock. Their 1975 smash hit Jump In My Car catapulted them to superstardom and they followed with a swag of crowd pleasers such as Darktown Strutters Ball, Crazy, My Little Girl, Heart of Stone, and (You've Got) The Devil In You to name a few. The respect the industry had for Ted Mulry was evident by the massive support shown by fellow musicians who put on a series of concerts to raise money for him after he was diagnosed with cancer in 2001. Steve stepped up to perform for Ted at a benefit in his honour Gimme Ted and received the thumbs up from his big brother, so it was only fitting that when TMG got back together that Steve performed for Ted. Now, TMG are back being a hot commodity on the touring circuit, widely renowned for their great live shows."

Bjorn Strid (The Night Flight Orchestra)

If you love your rock with a classic vibe and elements of prog, AOR and chock full of melodies, then I'm assuming you're already all over The Night Flight Orchestra, right? If not, then this could very well be your new favourite band. The guys have just dropped their most glorious and cinematic album yet. It's titled Aeromantic and released 28th February 2020. Check out my chat with frontman Bjorn Strid as we try and unlock why air, time & space has inspired so much amazing music over the years. We talk how he has evolved as a singer and songwriter since starting The Night Flight Orchestra over 10 years ago and I also can't help but ask whether the track Divinyls is in fact a nod to the legendary Aussie rockers, The Divinyls.

Rob Wylde (Midnite City)

Midnite City are one band definitely not to be missed at MelodicRock Fest in Melbourne in March. With the UK rockers bringing an infectious mix of hair metal vibes with a touch of melodic hard rock, all I have to say about their upcoming visit down under is "Here Comes The Party....!!" I recently caught up with their lead singer Rob Wydle to chat about his expectations of their first visit to Australia, being big in Japan and a love of Neighbours, Roxus and The Veronicas!

Angry Anderson (Rose Tattoo)

March 3rd is a date to mark in your calendars if you are a fan of Rose Tattoo for the release of new album 'Outlaws'. An album that sees the current lineup of Rose Tattoo getting to leave their recorded imprint in the Rose Tattoo legacy by re-recording that iconic debut album Rock N Roll Outlaw. With the addition of three tracks that were originally demoed, but never making the final cut - Rosetta, Snow Queen & Sweet Love Rock and Roll. If you've seen Rose Tattoo recently, then you are already well aware that Angry has assembled a lineup that includes some of the best in the business. Legendary bass player, Mark Evans of AC/DC fame, iconic guitarist Bob Spencer from Finch, Skyhooks & The Angels, the Pete Wells endorsed "unbelievably talented maestro of rock mayhem", Dai Pritchard on slide and Jackie Barnes, son of Jimmy keeping time on drums. My chat with Angry is one you don't want to miss, with Angry digging deep into the memory bank to talk all things that first album, working with the legendary George Young and Harry Vanda, as well as a raw, candid and honest insight into those volatile early days of one of the most influential rock bands to have existed on the planet.
