CD Review: Badger/Time Will Tell

Reviewed by: Roger Scales


Outside of Extreme, Pat Badger has played with Jason Bieler of Saigon Kick in Super TransAtlantic and of course Tribe of Judah with Gary Cherone but has never really had his own project or solo effort. We all know what he brought to the table in all of these bands beyond his solid bass playing and that was his very underrated, extremely smooth harmonies. With that in mind, I had always wondered what a project of his own might sound like? My thought would be one part Cheap Trick, add in a touch of Queen, a sprinkle of Aerosmith, a dab of KISS and a small pinch of Van Halen and that would be a signature Pat Badger album. Well you know what, ‘Time Will Tell” from Badger is truly all of that and a whole lot more. Read more

Contest: Win An Autographed Copy Of The New Sixx:AM Release “This Is Gonna Hurt”

May 8, 2011 by  
Filed under Contests, Daily Music News

Sixx:AM (Nikki Sixx, James Michael and Dj Ashba)  are back with their new album This Is Gonna Hurt, the follow up to their 2007 debut Life Is Beautiful.  The new album, like the first, coincides with the release of the new book written by Nikki Sixx of the same name.

We’ve got an autographed copy of This Is Gonna Hurt to give away to one lucky winner.  To enter:  send an email to staff@theywillrockyou.com with the subject “Sixx:AM”.  Include your name, number, email address and mailing address.  One winner will be selected at random on May 15, 2011.

About the album:
The idea for the album came one day when Michael stopped by Sixx’s Funny Farm photo studio. The pair were looking through some of the bassist’s recent pictures, which depicted people missing limbs, some who were incredibly overweight and prostitutes who all engage with Nikki for photographs included in the book THIS IS GONNA HURT. Michael and Ashba were struck by Sixx’s ability to capture beauty in situations where society judges it as other than. It made them think about their own assumptions and feelings and as they do, the group got together and wrote and recorded songs about the experience.

Michael says, “The way Nikki had set the surroundings, you realize the photo subject has such an incredible story to tell. It was very thoughtful and very beautiful and I believe he was taking a picture of the person inside, even though the outside was not what we’re used to seeing and certainly didn’t fit the average person’s concept of what beautiful is. When I listen to the finished record, it’s these images I see.”

“The idea is to show the truth about how people do judge others and how they turn a blind eye to people that are different,” explains Ashba. “It’s basically a wakeup call. Hopefully people get it and it will sink in.”

For all the latest on Sixx:AM visit their official website.  You can purchase the album on Amazon here.
