By Metal Dave I first met “Stevie D” in an alley off the Sunset Strip (and no, it wasn’t for the purpose of some illicit exchange). The year was 2004 (or was it ’05?) and I’d flown to Los Angeles to meet the Crank County Daredevils as they pillaged their way to the West Coast […]

By Metal Dave As someone who will always applaud Guns N’ Roses for kicking rock-n-roll in the ass, I was more than happy to interview bassist Duff McKagan in 2004 as he toured with Velvet Revolver. I came to admire Duff even more after reading his excellent autobiography, “It’s So Easy” (easily one of my […]

By Metal Dave Jimmy Ashhurst was once held at gunpoint alongside his friend Stiv Bators. He’s also jammed with Johnny Thunders, Mick Ronson, Ronnie Wood and Smack. Yeah, he’s already cooler than you. Add his cult-classic album with Izzy Stradlin plus worldwide fame with Buckcherry, and it’s safe to say Jimmy’s earned some serious cred while […]

Posted Oct. 15, 2013 on Jimmy’s Facebook page: Ok that’s it … Now even my doorman’s checking on me to make sure I’m not dead sooo…, here goes. Over a month ago now the band collectively decided that they would prefer to proceed without me. I haven’t made any sort of announcement prior to today since I […]

By Metal Dave If Buckcherry admits to anything on new album “Confessions,” it may be a degree of infidelity for straying on “All Night Long.” While that 2010 album idled mostly in Neutral, “Confessions” is a return to Buckcherry’s punch and swagger — albeit with added dynamics and vibe. Ambitious without being Radiohead, “Confessions” is […]

By Metal Dave Glessner It doesn’t take a smack in the head to see why Buckcherry singer Josh Todd draws comparisons to Axl, Iggy and Tyler, but look past the obvious and you’ll also find he’s a HUGE fan of Slipknot, Prince and a long list of hip-hop artists. As Buckcherry gets ready to open for Guns […]

FLEXX MANIAC: Phil Bronco kicks out the early Buckcherry when he wants to get lit up. (Photo by Dajah Renee) By Metal Dave Glessner 2Fast2Die recently launched a new semi-whenever feature called, “Ask.” Why? Because we needed an excuse to pester your favorite rocks stars and scenesters without wrestling them to the ground (or bribing them) for a full-blown interview. After all, […]

By Metal Dave Glessner According to a source more reliable than my memory, I first met Mykel Foster onboard a Buckcherry tour bus outside a Houston club in December 2008. When a mutual friend later called to tell me he was putting together a new band with ”that guy you met on the Buckcherry bus,” I drew […]

CHERRY ON TOP: The Last Vegas singer Chad Cherry digs chicks, monsters, rock-n-roll fashion, partying and opening for the likes of Motley Crue and AC/DC. Who doesn’t? By Metal Dave Glessner When it comes to shooting-star rock singers, they don’t burn hotter than Chad Cherry. A leather-legged version of vintage Rod Stewart spiked with the sex-bomb […]
