Brucifer’s CD Reviews – KISS – Destroyer – Resurrected

by Bruce Middleton Another CD I was eagerly awaiting. Bob Ezrin has gone back into the studio with the master tapes to the KISS classic album he recorded with the band in 1976 and remixed the whole thing. This should have been a fan’s dream … I know I certainly had very high hopes for […]

Brucifer’s CD Reviews – Loverboy – Rock N Roll Revival

by Bruce Middleton This one is mixed bag. I was looking forward to this as I’ve loved this band since they first came out in 1980. There are only 3 new songs, the title track, which is not too bad but I’m not so keen about the claustrophobic production on it, and 2 other new […]

19th Anniversary of the Passing of Guitar Legend, Stevie Ray Vaughan

For You Bass Players Out There

by Dave Horn So here it is…the 21st century so I thought I would check out ‘twitter’. Besides the high quality tweets coming from an un-named band that apparently runs a cab company with really loud stereos 😉 I came across Billy Sheehan.
