billsittingWith the recent wrap up of the VH1 Metal Mania Stripped tour that put FireHouse on stage acoustically and stripped down every night with the likes of Jani Lane, Stephen Pearcy, Kip Winger, and Don Dokken; guitarist Bill Leverty took time out of his crazy schedule to answer a few questions about the tour, his side project Wanderlust, and about his future possible career as a Detroit Red Wing!

Having received his first guitar at age 4, it wasn’t until many years later when Bill Leverty was reunited with his passion for playing and the rest was history.  FireHouse was formed by Bill and drummer Michael Foster who joined forces in 1984.  They soon sought out frontman CJ Snare; who had been playing with a different local band (whose bassist just happened to be Perry Richardson) and soon after CJ joined up with Michael and Bill, Perry was soon to follow.  Their first release on a major label was their self titled release in 1990.  From there, things skyrocketed.  Years later Allen McKenzie joined the band on bass as Perry moved on to other projects.  8 albums later, a crazy amount of miles logged on the road, they are still rockin the masses and taking their signature brand of four part melodies coast to coast, playing acoustic, live, and everything in between.

damone_headBoston based band Damone blazed on to the scene with their debut release From The Attic in 2003. A few years later Damone find themselves hot on the heels of their newly released EP, wrapping up a tour opening for Butch Walker, getting ready to hit the road with Less Than Jake, opening a show for Bon Jovi in Boston, and finishing up their sophomore album. I guess you could say it’s all Damone, all the time. With all this going on we figured there was no chance in hell that Damone would find the time to do an interview with us. We were wrong! Drummer Dustin and bassist Vasquez were cool enough to answer our questions. The rest of the band is rounded out by Noelle on lead vocals and guitar, and Mike on lead guitar. Their live show is insane and not to be missed check them out when the Less Than Jake tour hits your town.
