Okay if you haven’t heard of these guys WHERE THE HELL HAVE YOU BEEN? I had heard of Buckcherry for some time…years in fact. I liked their music it always had a catchy beat and good guitar work. The thing that kinda had me leaning on disliking them was the guitar chords used in their songs sounded WAY too familiar. Like their song “Lit Up” sounds just like the song “Shock Me” by Ace Freely and there was always a AC/DC sound. But I always enjoyed the music and I always enjoyed the vocals. What has leaded me to the point of this band being my favorite Rock and Roll band at this point in time was seeing them live. I was fortunate enough to go to Crue Fest this year and was mostly excited to see Sixx AM.
Sixx AM
I couldn't wait to see DJ Ashba play live, I had been a fan of his since Beautiful Creatures and he SO deserves all the recognition he is getting now for his fabulous guitar work…but sad to say Sixx AM did not play Phoenix. It had something to do with the lead singer being sick.:( Hopefully they will come back and make it up to all of us Phoenicians!!) But I was also excited to see Paparoach and Buckcherry. In all honesty I was more excited to see these other bands than I was to see Motley Crue. But I’m a Rocker Chick from way back so I had already seen Motley Crue on every tour they have had since the 80’s. I love em’ but I wanted some new blood if you know what I mean.

Neither Paparoach nor Buckcherry were a disappointment.

Paparoach played so many songs that I knew but didn’t know that it was their songs. So that was delightful surprise. They held the audiences attention and really got the crowd going. I would definitely go see them again, and again, and again.

When Buckcherry hit the stage….ahhhh they were AWESOME!!! All of the songs had a great bluesy, sexy beat and were filled with great rocking guitar work. The band was full of so much energy!! They had great stage presence and the music as I mentioned was awesome. One thing that really makes this band and who just happens to be the Hot Rocker Boi of the Week/Month…is their lead singer Josh Todd.

He is an awesome front man…with vocals that have a down and dirty kind of sound but most of all sexy. He struts across the stage like a cheetah, sleek and smooth. He reminds me of a young Steven Tyler. He has so much sex appeal as he dances around the stage like he owns it and ladies I'm sure you will agree with me that he in fact does. I’m sure there were tons of wet panties in the audience that night and every time they play...I know mine were lol... Plus who can not notice the fact that he has Ken Doll body that is toned and chiseled in all of the right places. I think you will agree with me that his physique does not hurt matters one little bit and he is such a pleasure to watch onstage. All I can say is if I were around Josh Todd I would never let myself get “Too Drunk " the name of their new release off of their new c.d. Black Butterfly.
So if you haven’t actually seen these guys live…try to catch a show whenever they stroll into your town. They are gonna rock your socks off!! And you won’t be disappointed!

It was a great concert. I wish Sixx A.M. had played but still very good
