By Metal Dave The Last Vegas from Chicago may be dicey on geography, but who cares where you’re going when you’re having this much fun? Handpicked to tour with Motley Crue after an impressed Nikki Sixx decided to produce their 2009 album, “Whatever Gets You Off” — and then holding more than folding while opening […]

LOOKS THAT KILL: Any Crue fans here? Nah. Singer Stevie Rachelle, second from right, rocks the Clorox while the rest of his Tuff guys overdose on Aqua Net. Looking good, fellas! By Metal Dave Glessner We’ve launched a new semi-whenever feature at 2Fast2Die called, “Ask.” Why? Because we needed a reason to pester your favorite rock […]

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 […]

By Metal Dave Glessner Some punk-rock snob will find reason to argue, but I like to think of Nikki Sixx as Johnny Thunders without the obituary. Certainly both are/were minimalist musicians, but their creative sense of style and swagger refashioned rock-n-roll like few others before or since. From the haywire hair, stacked heels and black eyes […]

In the spirit of Halloween, I take you back to 1988 when I lived in an apartment I lovingly dubbed “The Bomb Shelter” (if you were there, you understand).  By no accident, The Bomb Shelter was located directly behind Sneaker’s, which was THE hard rock/heavy metal/meat market club in San Antonio at the time.
