Two of rock’s most decorated female-led acts closed out this year’s Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater concert season with both a bang and a whimper, depending on which portion of the performances one referred to. Dubbed Love Alive, headliners Ann and Nancy Wilson, with their bandmates in Heart, teamed up with punk pioneer Joan […]
Dead, Jail, or Rock’n’Roll. That’s my entire review. Want more? OK. Michael Monroe. He’s that Finnish dude from the superlatively influential band Hanoi Rocks. Lived in New York’s East Village for years. Lived, breathed, ate up bands like The Damned, Dead Boys, The Heartbreakers…

Everything from song selection to why introducing such a concept is covered in the video by UbiSoft’s Paul Cross. If you don’t know about the awesomeness that is Rocksmith, why not check out my […]
