QR Picture 50 Michael Wilton of QueensrycheIt’s been a year of change for Queensryche. From the exit of vocalist Geoff Tate and the addition of Todd LaTorre to their latest self-titled release reaching No. 23 on the Billboard 200, Queensryche has reinvented themselves.

We recently caught up with guitarist Michael Wilton to talk about the whirlwind of a year it has been and what the future holds for the rockers.

Interviewed by: Roger Scales

Your S/T record was released in June and the response from the fans in the US especially has been overwhelming.  You charted #23 on Billboard and most critics have been extremely favorable in reviewing the record.  I believe the public has more than accepted vocalist Todd LaTorre into the band and the crowds are feeding off this positive energy that was enveloped and surround Queensryche at this time.  Do you agree?

Yes. It’s evident with the release of our album the reviews have been totally positive.  It’s encouraging to read what the magazines and online sites are saying but what’s great is what we have heard from the fans.  That’s the ultimate approval that we look for.  We also appreciate what our peers are saying as well.  Other bands seem to have really accepted our direction with the addition of Todd as well.  Read more

On August 3 Buckcherry will unleash their latest studio release “All Night Long” which is a return to their signature sound of in your face, raunchy rock with no apologies.  The title track gets the party started with what will undoubtedly be adopted as the anthem to many summers of 2010.

A decade into their career, Buckcherry’s longevity can largely be attributed to their steadfast approach of churning out straight up rock and roll minus the bells and whistles.  Often referring to themselves a “what you see is what you get” kind of band, it’s that rock n’ roll attitude that has made them a favorite among rock n’ roll purists.

A healthy mix of rockers and ballads “All Night Long” has a little something for everyone – including a good cause.  The band lyrically tweaked the tune “Our World” to offer it up as a charitable download to help those suffering in the wake of the recent oil disaster. 

In an industry that is inundated with “the next best thing” it’s always nice to have a band you can depend on – and Buckcherry gives us just that.  Without trying to reinvent the wheel the band consistently delivers on “All Night Long” with a great rock album from start to finish.

Bruno Mascolo of Drive A

DriveAband Bruno Mascolo of Drive A

Drive A is leading the way to usher in a new generation of punk that harkens back to the old days of punk.  The young quartet (Bruno Mascolo on vocals, Jason Nott on guitar, Cody Root on drums and Taylor Knowles on bass) pride themselves on delivering raw, honest punk songs that pack a punch of equal parts substance and asskicking.  Their debut album “Loss of Desire” offers up songs that we can all connect with – anger, frustration and malcontent.

 The band recently wrapped up the Bamboozle Road Show tour which saw them sharing the stage with the likes of Hanson and Boys Like Girls.  Not where you’d expect to find a rising punk band but these guys made the best of it by poaching as many fans as they could and bringing them over to the Drive A side.

After spending most of the year on the road the band feels closer than ever and is letting the creativity flow as they work on their follow-up album.  They also just announced that they’ll be hitting the road in September and October with Escape the Fate and Bullet For My Valentine where they’ll hopefully be trying out some of their new material.


We recently caught up with outspoken front man Bruno Mascolo who was as brutally honest as we had hoped.
