RSO – “Radio Free America”

David Wilson

RSO finally release their first full album since getting together musically and personally in 2013 (released 11th May 2018) and it is an absolute stormer of a record.

Crimes of Passion, Tri State Corner and Luke Gasser – Trillians, Newcastle upon Tyne 2nd May 2018

David Wilson

I never thought when I was a small child (yes, I was small once thank you) first getting hooked by the wonders of rock and roll that I would reach such an age as i have that it would be possible to still be discovering new bands and music that would fast ...

Tri State Corner “Hero”

David Wilson

On this incredible journey (yeah, I know, too many occasions when I have been unfortunate to catch sight of some dross laden reality show), I get sent some incredible stuff to check out and provide some thoughts on. So many, in fact, that it does involve  trying to see through the musical ...

Maverick – “Cold Star Dancer”

David Wilson

Time and again we keep being told they don’t make bands like they used to. I’m really never sure exactly what people mean by that but have to assume that what is meant is that those saying it may be quite blinkered in their choice of listening. Come on, admit it, we ...

The Last Great Dreamers, Psychobabylon and LoGOz – Trillians, Newcastle Upon Tyne 22nd April 2018

David Wilson

Another night, another trip to The Toon for a gig. What a life I lead, eh? Tonight was another one of those where the city was kind of inundated with gigs but this one was always going to be the winner for me – having experienced the infectious glam/pop/rock/punk/insert own description performances ...

Wayward Sons – The Riverside, Newcastle Upon Tyne 21st April 2018

David Wilson

The more eagle-eyed amongst you will have spotted me having something of a moment about Wayward Sons at the tail end of 2017 when their debut album, “Ghosts of Yet to Come” hit the shelves (assuming of course that there are still shops with shelves for them to hit). I suppose a ...

Toby Jepson Interview – 21st April 2018, Newcastle Upon Tyne

Just before they Wayward Sons soundcheck for the Newcastle Upon Tyne night of the headline tour, at the rather splendid Riverside, Toby Jepson very kindly spent some time with Rock-Zone UK to have a chat about life with the Wayward Sons, songwriting, some thoughts about areas that young bands should be thinking ...

Mark Warburton

Dokken, one of my all time favorite bands from 80s offer a follow-up to their sublime 1989 live album ‘ Beast from the East’ with ‘Return To The East – Live 2016’. I for one never thought a reunion of the original four members would ever happen, but I guess that an absolute ...

The Dead Daisies The Amorettes – Manchester Academy 12th April 2018

Darren Thompson

On a typical dreary evening in Manchester (Mr Corabi’s words not mine! Well he said the weathers always shit in the UK and he is not wrong is he) but that’s ok because tonight we have a sold out show at the Academy to brighten up our night. A great double-header in ...

Just prior to headlining the Saturday night at HRH AOR this year, Scotti Hill from Skid Row kindly spent some time with Justin to talk about life in the band, his live quipment and the dangerous world of touring. If you listen carefully (at around 25 seconds in) you will hear that ...

David Wilson

A new festival for 2018 which aims to bring back the glory days of one day festivals? OK folks tell me more. To be honest the folks behind Stonedeaf put it so much better than we can so …. Our aim is to hold a natural successor to the iconic Castle Donington ...
