It is all about the Love of God and a Beautiful Girl. Cause that’s all a man needs in his life to make it whole. It’s simple, so God/ a Women are “Enough” for me. It’s like James Brown said in “It’s a man’s world” is that life in nothing without a women or a girl. – J. of Dark Stone
You can expect some Hard Rock, Metal and Classic Rock, Blues. We’re trying to bring back the old days when a live show was fun with drum solos and guitar solos.
The music scene here is pretty good. There are a lot of friends from other bands that always support the local venues. It does seem like a bunch of clubs are more interested in playing DJs at a later more prime hour and actual have the bands open up for them, basically. We need to go back to the days of hair metal where everyone was swarming the place to check out the bands, instead of a guy playing his iPod through the loud speakers or scratchin’ a disc.
It seems like Record Labels nowadays are looking for well established bands before they sign them or provide tour support. When back in the day, if The Record Label saw potential or talent; they would be more willing to take a chance. But with all of the social media outlets today, it is very easy to get your music out there, but since everyone can do it; you need to stand out a lot more as a band.
I would love to have 5 minutes alone with….
Zakk Wylde. He is one of the greatest guitarists in the world, that has created such a crunchy, heavy, huge sound, and he has an amazing voice.
