Sad news: The music world mourns the loss of Ray Manzarek (74), founding Member and keyboarder of The Doors, White Zombie drummer Phil Buerstatte (44) and Uriah Heep bassist Trevor Bolder (63). R.I.P.!
German Hardrockers BERSERKER will donate 18.000€ to the Berlin cancer charity for children on May 25. November 2011 BERSERKER front man Schröder was diagnosed with cancer, now he is cancer-free. In 2012 the band collected money for this charity at their concerts and will also continue to do so in the future. Slayer´s Jeff Hanneman is dead: he passed away at about 11AM on May 2nd near his Southern California home because of liver failure due to an infection after a spider bite. R.I.P. Jeff!

Melodic Rock, part one! Quite fitting to the awakening of spring - and to all those upcoming well-refreshing grill- or festival-wake parties, where long haired dudes hang out, have fun with their ladies, or whatever other pleasurable activity you coul imagine, the US band TRIXTER supplies us with the perfect soundtrack to it. If you forget the silly band name and those even sillier lyrics, you will experience some US countryside romance. Close your eyes, listen to ´Walk With A Stranger´ and you´ll taste the gasoline-drenched Arizona desert dust blowing into your wide-open Chavelle Supersport . With ´Tattoos & Misery´ your DD-copilot loses her lingerie and turns into "the coolest thing you´ve ever met", a "physical attraction".
Cannot write properly now for some reason... yes, those masculine fantasies. Simple and err remote-controlled. But this is how it works, and this is why TRIXTER have sold more than 3 Mio CDs in their career since 1983(!) - and with this release they might increase this number. You can dislike the genre - as I do sometimes - and still enjoy this music - as I do now. On-the-road romance paired with nostalgia releases half-forgotten memories that cannot be denied. This is what I like, therefore those fans of stripy ultra-tights receive 10 elks!
