The Revolver Golden Gods Black Carpet event was a blast. It all happened last Thursday evening at the Nokia Theater at LA Live in Los Angeles. I had the pleasure of interviewing Alice Cooper and Marilyn Manson about their upcoming co-headlining tour and about Alice’s forthcoming covers album. Marilyn Manson was the comedic sidekick during the interview. He seemed to let the veteran rocker, Alice, take the lead. Hope you enjoy the interview.

The Madness has ended! The KCAL Rockers have spoken, and after over a month of voting in head to head match-ups of the Top 64 KCAL Rock Albums of All Time, we have found your favorite…ladies and gentlemen, we give you AC/DC-”Back in Black”!!!

Need a reminder of what is on it?

Side one

“Hells Bells” – 5:10
“Shoot to Thrill” – 5:17
“What Do You Do for Money Honey” – 3:33
“Given the Dog a Bone” – 3:30
“Let Me Put My Love Into You” – 4:16

Side two

“Back in Black” – 4:14
“You Shook Me All Night Long” – 3:30
“Have a Drink on Me” – 3:57
“Shake a Leg” – 4:06
“Rock and Roll Ain’t Noise Pollution” – 4:15

Damn, that is one fine album all the way through!

Only one last piece of business to take care of, and that was to draw a name of one of the thousands of KCAL Rockers that voted over the course of the tournament. So congratulations to Daniel Rehome from Redlands, the winner of all 64 of the contenders from our friends at The Mad Platter in Riverside!

We had some amazingly close battles, and a ton of fun with this contest. Not to mention all of the discussions and arguments it sparked across the Empire. Thank you for all of your votes and participation. You Rock!!!!

I had the great pleasure of interviewing Geezer Butler of Black Sabbath at NAMM 2013. He was very cool and was great about updating us on the progress of the upcoming Sabbath album and tour. Enjoy!!!

Check this out. This Thursday night there is going to be a celebrity roast of Dee Snider at The Grove in Anaheim presented by Guitar World Magazine and Revolver Magazine. We’re talking about some big names being there too. It’ll feature Penn Jillette from Penn & Teller as the roast master. The panel will include Zakk Wylde from Ozzy’s band and Black Label Society, Scott Ian from Anthrax, Lita Ford, and a bunch more. And, it’ll be broadcast live on AXS TV. Our friends at the charity Music Saves Lives have a package that includes a couple of seats at a table for the roast, dinner and drinks, and red carpet viewing. They’re giving them away to the person who has highest donation to the charity by Thursday morning at 9am. If you’d like to get in on it, hit their page that is selling tickets for their concert coming up next month. You don’t have to buy tickets to their concert, but you can if you like, of course! Anyway, make the donation in the box below where you buy tickets, and good luck on hitting the fun on Thursday night!
