Snoop Dogg Heading to HBO With Original Drama Series Snoop Dogg may have caught the drama bug following his appearance on Empire's explosive season finale. The veteran rapper has partnered with HBO to develop a family drama for the network. According to a statement, the as-yet-untitled show will be set in the Eighties and center around a Los Angeles family "whose seemingly idyllic life is turned upside down by the collision of their community and American politics." Allen Hughes (Menace II Society, The Book of Eli) has been tapped to direct and executive produce the series. Rodney Barnes (The Boondocks, Everybody Hates Chris) has signed on as a writer. For now, Snoop is only executive producing this HBO venture alongside his longtime manager Ted Chung. There's no word if he is directing or providing new music for his show. On March 17th, the rapper appeared as himself on Fox's breakout hit Empire, performing his Pharrell-produced single "Peaches N Cream" before debuting its psychedelic video later that night. March 19th, he gave the keynote address at SXSW in Austin, TX. HBO seems to be the right fit for a Snoop-produced show, given his love for the network's popular series Game of Thrones. In time for the show's fifth season, set to premiere on April 12th, he appeared on Catch the Throne: The Mixtape 2 with the song "Lannister's Anthem." Last year, he filmed a stoned recap of the show with Seth Rogen for his GGN web series. "It's like the rap game, it's gangster, about family, loyalty and trying to get the top," said Snoop in a statement about Game of Thrones. "I had to get involved. Give the fans a little bit of how I see it." A premiere date for Snoop's show has yet to be set.

Twisted Sister Drummer A.J. Pero Dead at 55 Longtime Twisted Sister drummer A.J. Pero has passed away, the heavy-metal act announced in a statement today. The Associated Press reports that Pero was found unresponsive on a tour bus in Poughkeepsie, New York and subsequently died of an apparent heart attack. He was 55. "Today, I lost a brother," frontman Dee Snider said in a statement to Rolling Stone. "Anthony Jude Pero passed away. A.J. was the final piece in a band that would become an international sensation and one of the greatest live rock acts to ever hit the stage. His sledgehammer assault on the drums helped drive Twisted Sister and me to greatness and inspired me to rock every single show. My heart breaks knowing I will never feel the power of his beat behind me, or turn to see his face smiling broadly from the sheer joy he got from doing what he loved. I will always remember that smile. R.I.P., my friend." "The members of Twisted Sister are profoundly saddened to announce the untimely passing of our brother, A.J. Pero," the band wrote on their official website (via Blabbermouth). "The band, crew and most importantly the family of A.J. Pero thank you for your thoughts and prayers at this time." Pero had been touring with a side project, Adrenaline Mob, at the time of his death. He was found on his bus unresponsive, so paramedics rushed him to a hospital but he did not make it, guitarist Jay Jay French told TMZ. "A.J. Pero was a force, the likes of which I doubt I will ever have the chance to play in front of again," French said. "His drumming was legendary, but his heart, as a human being, was even greater. In our hearts, he will always be the engine that drove the train. I loved him and today my heart has been ripped out. R.I.P."

Pero was behind the kit on Twisted Sister's most popular tracks, "We're Not Gonna Take It" and "I Wanna Rock." The band broke up in 1988, but Pero linked back up with his former bandmates for brief reunions in 1997 and the early 2000s until they regrouped permanently in 2003 and subsequently made a pair of studio albums, 2004's Still Hungry and 2006's A Twisted Christmas. Pero was still the group's drummer at the time of his death. It's unclear whether Twisted Sister will postpone their upcoming tour dates – they're next scheduled to perform May 30th in Las Vegas, Nevada – in light of Pero's death. Miley Cyrus Stuns SXSW With Surprise Performance at Mike Will Made It's Set Is a party truly complete before Miley Cyrus shows up? Revelers at SXSW's Fader Fort on March 18th, didn't have to ponder that question for long. As much fun as everyone was already having at Atlanta producer Mike Will Made It's star-spangled showcase, Cyrus made the night that much more sparkly when she closed out the night with a surprise guest set. She had the crowd in her palm from the moment she walked out and began rapping her verse from the producer's "23." She played her trump card next, sending the room into rowdy raptures with a performance of "We Can't Stop" that showed off her legit impressive vocal power. Finally, she stayed onstage as Will's young protégés Rae Sremmurd sent us off with their irresistibly catchy "Throw Sum Mo." Cyrus rapped along to some of Nicki Minaj's recorded hook, as much a fan as a star. Even before the crowning surprise of Cyrus' appearance, the night had been an emphatic demonstration of Will's impact on pop and rap music alike in recent years. First Will brought out human cartoon Riff Raff, who performed his winning verse from "Choppin' Blades" while sporting an unseasonably warm Russian ushanka hat. (Riff Raff has expressed his belief that the hat deserves a Rolling Stone cover; we are looking into the matter.) Then came Rae

Sremmurd, shooting off confetti cannons and super soakers into the crowd and delighting one and all with "No Type." Next was Future, who defined charisma with his towering height and colorful fashion poncho, not to mention his untouchable hooks on "Move That Dope," "Bugatti," and "Love Me." Johnny Cash's 'American Recordings' to Be Released as Vinyl Box Set While country classics like Johnny Cash's "Ring of Fire," "I Walk the Line" and "A Boy Named Sue" stand as the music legend's most recognizable, popular work, it's the albums he recorded with producer Rick Rubin for American Recordings that cemented his legacy. On March 24th, the six albums will be re-released in a special vinyl box set. Cash's partnership with Rubin and his American Recordings label began in 1994 with the eponymous release. A collection of Cash originals and left-ofcenter covers, like Nick Lowe's "The Beast in Me" and Glenn Danzig's "Thirteen," American Recordings stripped away any production gloss to showcase Cash's enveloping baritone. The 1996 follow-up, American Recordings II: Unchained, was even more adventurous, enlisting Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers as Cash's backing band and expanding the reach of the covers to include songs by Beck and Soundgarden. The series doubled as an artistic rebirth for the Man in Black, who physically was in increasingly poor health. His recording of Nine Inch Nails' "Hurt" for 2002's American IV: The Man Comes Around — and its stark video — would come to symbolize his final days. He died the following year. American V: A Hundred Highways and American Recordings VI: Ain't No Grave were both culled from the sessions for American V. "Like the 309." His American Recordings debut was named Best Contemporary Folk Album at the 1995 Grammy Awards, while Unchained won the Best Country Album Grammy in 1998.

Think back to those days in the 1980’s when rock music was all about partying, sex, and beautiful men with long hair singing songs about women or the Devil. For a while, the music sustained us, but eventually, the repetitive themes, imagery, and sounds soon grew stale. Millions of rock fans started packing away the glam rock t-shirts that they once had worn religiously; they started to grow hungry for a different sound. Then, in 1990, a new sound pierced through the music scene of the day; the band, Extreme, decided to romance us with poetry, crystal clear guitar, and soothing harmony through their song, “More than Words.” The song was instantly woven into our hearts and memories; it made us want to delve further into its album, “Extreme II Pornograffiti” to discover music that was unlike the music of those times. Now, Extreme is back, promoting the 25th anniversary of this landmark album through a re-release of Pornograffiti on a 2-disc set, complemented by a world tour. Full Access Magazine was given the opportunity to speak with Extreme’s lead singer, Gary Cherone, for an enjoyable discussion about the current tour and the album that changed our immature perspectives on rock. Extreme is touring with 3 out of the 4

original members, including: Gary Cherone (Lead Vocals), Nuno Bettencourt (Guitar), Pat Badger (Bass), and Kevin Figueiredo (Drums). On this tour, they are playing each song from the Pornograffiti album in sequential order. “I was outvoted by Pat and Nuno,” Cherone explained,” I didn’t want to do it in order, and they convinced me. I thought it would be awkward doing ‘More Than Words’ early in the set… but it ended up being the right thing to do because the record has an ebb and flow and it crescendos at the end with ‘Songs of Love’ and ‘Hole Hearted’; so it actually works as a show.” The term, Pornograffiti, is used by Extreme as a metaphor for the world, its seduction, and all the things that wear down our innocence. The album was written when Extreme was touring to support their first album, Extreme I. On Extreme I, the music reflected a mixture of the bands’ influences like Van Halen and Queen. By the time they got into the studio to record Pornograffiti, the band's identity was more refined, so instead of just being influenced by their musical heroes, they were developing; they evolved into “Pornograffiti.” The songs that were picked for the album revealed a loose story line; it became Extreme’s “funked up fairy tale.”

The story of the album begins with a mom saying goodbye to Francis (Francis is Cherone’s middle name), as he leaves home and his girlfriend in search of the American dream. While confronted with the chaos of the world, Francis loses his innocence, and in the end, he is worn down. The story is never resolved; he is left to continue his search for something to fill the void that has grown within him. In the first song of the first album, leads the protagonist, Francis, to the “Decadent Dance’ of sex, drugs, and rock n’roll. Francis then gets lost in sexual temptation in “Lil’ Jack Horny.” “When I’m President” communicates Francis’ aspirations, and “within that song,” Cherone reflected, “it tells you that you can be anything you want to be.” Pat Travers, who is a guitar inspiration of Bettencourt’s, joined Extreme on the next track, “Get the Funk Out.” He sang the pre-chorus on this funky song that communicated to a world of judging eyes that, “If you don’t like what I’m doing, get out…no one is going to tell me what to do,” Cherone added. After every three songs on the album, Francis harkens back, trying to recapture the past and the innocence he once had. We first hear this on “More than Words,” which represents a break in the mayhem, when Francis discovers that he has strayed from both his roots and his girlfriend. “This song was inspired the Beatles song called ‘If I fell,’” Cherone reflected, “and when we wrote it, Nuno just wrote this beautiful progression…and normally we bring the songs to the band members, but this one stood out on its own…and we just wanted to keep it simple.” Because “More than Words” is a sweet sounding, acoustic song with two harmonies, people have misinterpreted its meaning through the years. Cherone explained, “It is actually written from my girlfriend’s perspective; a lot of people took it wrong… they would use it for their prom song or wedding song, and I’m saying that it’s really not a pure love song…it’s more of a, not a complaint, but a…girlfriend saying,

‘Hey…show me…don’t say it because you are not showing me,’ and at the time, she was right.” Various versions of the song, “More than Words,” can be found on Disc 2 of the 2015 Pornograffiti release, which include a remix, an edit, acapela, and acapela with congos. When asked which version is Cherone’s favorite, he claimed that although he enjoys it as an acapela duet, he recalled really enjoying acapela with three party harmony, with Pat singing; this version was born on a night on tour when Bettencourt’s guitar was not cooperating, so Pat joined in. A song called “Money” follows “More than Words;” this song deals with the temptation of money, but is written in a cynical tone. This temptation is followed by an internal struggle depicted in the lyrics of “It’s A Monster,” which then leads up to “Pornograffiti,” which reprises the illustration of a distorted, disturbed, world. Next is one of Cherone’s favorite songs on the album, “When I First Kissed You,” which was written from the point of view of Cherone’s alter ego. He recounted,” I always thought someday I’ll be singing some standards... I’m a big Frank Sinatra fan… They are some of the greatest American songs ever written…as a songwriter I think if you don’t know the standards, you’re missing out, because

they’re some of the best songs ever written…so for me, that was my crack at trying to write a standard.” When it is performed live, a piano is rolled out onto the stage, a story of a great memory is shared, and Cherone gets to transform into a crooner for a few minutes. Then we have “Suzi Wants Her All Day Sucker” and “He-man Woman Hater” which depict the struggle to resist the destructive temptations, and after all of the push and pull through the album, we are reminded that love is what drives us and love is what breaks people in “Songs for Love.” Lastly, the album closes with “Hole Hearted,” the human condition of remaining in a consistent search for love to make us whole. On this tour, you will get to hear all of these songs, then some other fan favorites from other albums like “Kid Ego” and “Play With Me.” “It is actually one of our favorite tours we’ve done…we are really enjoying it,” Cherone shared,” playing these songs, learning them again, going to rehearsals…and digging up lyrics that I had forgotten, and Nuno having to learn these intricate solos again…we appreciate what we did back then…we’re a better

band now than we ever were… we’re better singers… we’re better musicians…so in a way it’s as fun, if not more fun than before.” “There’s older fans; there’s young fans, ”Cherone continued, “we love the young fans, the kids that are coming to the show now; they became fans when the band wasn’t even together… a 17, 18, or 19-year-old kid seeing Extreme for the first time, they have that enthusiasm that reminds you of 25 years ago.” Extreme is currently on tour and will be recording music for a new album between performance dates. When asked about the audience’s influence on their songwriting and recording, Cherone responded, “On a tour, the band does 30 shows in a row and the band is tight as ever… the band is up there and the adrenaline is rushing… then you get in the studio and you want to recreate that.” “So that’s the power of music, “Cherone continued, “if it moves the audience, it is moving the musicians that play it.” You can go see Extreme for this 25th Anniversary of “Pornograffiti” in Florida on April 15th at the House of Blues in Orlando and on April 16th at the Capitol Theatre in Clearwater.

If you’re a fan of southern rock, then the “must see” band for you is Blackberry Smoke. The Atlanta-based band’s current tour stops at The House of Blues in Orlando on April 25th, where their unique fusion of southern rock, bluesgrass and country will be on full-display. Lead vocalist/guitarist Charlie Starr recently spent time with Full Access Magazine to talk about Blackberry Smoke’s ever-busy tour schedule, the band’s fan base and comparisons to legendary bands of the southern rock genre. “I think we did like 283 shows last year, it was ridiculous. I hope that we don’t play that many this year…it’s great and a great way to make a living, but that’s pretty excessive. One way to look at it is, its supply and demand I guess you can say. I don’t mean to say that in an egotistical way at all, but if people want to come see our show, we’re damn sure gonna play it. That will drive you crazy, though,” Starr explained. “It’s hard to focus on anything else when you play that many shows. I’d like to not burn ourselves out. We enjoy touring heavily, but there’s a fineline. It could be worse, there could be no need or no want for Blackberry Smoke music and that would suck. We could always say, ‘no, we don’t want to play this or that’, but we like to play music and that’s the way we pay our bills…it’s a job, a good job.”

Blackberry Smoke is currently touring in support of their fourth and latest album, Holding all the Roses, which was released in February. Joining Starr in Blackberry Smoke is Richard Turner (bass/vocals), Brit Turner (drums), Paul Jackson (guitar/vocals) and Brandon Still (keyboards). During their 15 years as a band, Starr talks of Blackberry Smoke’s personal connection with their ever-growing and important fan base. “Our fans are great! They come out night after night and they support. It’s a heartwarming thing…so many of our fans we are friendly with and we know them. They’ve got our phone numbers, they buy multiple copies of our records or our shirts and give them to their families or for themselves…it’s just touching. I love that they love this music so much, cuz I do. I listen to it myself. To see people care so much about it, that’s why we do it,” Starr said. “People have told me their opinions. They say it’s bigger than the records. Of course, being the end of a show, we know there’s an obvious difference between a show and the record. Sometimes people say ‘man that sounded just like the record’ and it’s like we feel we should be giving something more or something special,” Starr added. “People will tell me that they love different things about what we do, like guitar work or stretch a song

out more, we try to keep it fresh every night. We don’t play the same show every night, the set list is never the same. We have a lot of people that come to multiple shows, so we have to do that for them, too. We don’t want them to say ‘hey, that’s the same shit as last night.’ We don’t have 500 songs to pick from, but there are a lot of songs we have to do every night or the people would be mad. We like to jump around and pull songs from each record.” Through the band’s 15 year history and their constantly-growing catalogue of music, Blackberry Smoke has been compared to southern rock legends ZZ Top and Lynyrd Skynyrd. Starr takes these comparisons as a compliment, but is adamant about his band’s own unique sound and style. “It’s a good thing, I guess, if people say elements of our music remind them of Skynyrd or ZZ Top; that’s good. I think people will take it a little too far sometimes when they say “you guys are the next Lynyrd Skynyrd,” we’re not trying to be the next ‘anything,’ we are Blackberry Smoke,” Starr explained. “There’s not a box that we jumped in that said we ‘always have to do this.’ Those bands were allowed to do whatever they wanted, as well…they went wherever the music took them. Real fans don’t want you to sound the same every time. They would get bored with that. That’s the beauty of it.” Starr notices the amount of fans at their shows are increasing, much more than in the early days of the band’s existence. He recalls the band’s earlier days of playing four sets per night, four nights per week. In those days, they played until they “couldn’t go anymore.” Starr talks of how his growth as a songwriter since those early days has made such an emotional impact on him. “Every night when they sing lyrics back, it’s a powerful thing. I would almost go as far as to say it’s the best thing ever. It gets a little emotional sometimes,” Starr admits.

“When I started in music, I didn’t think about being a songwriter; it came much later in life. I wrote a lot of horrible songs when I was learning how to do it. Nobody was singing notes back to me! Its great and the funny thing. I don’t want to put too much out there, I guess. I just find a comfortable way to do it.” As a child, Starr was surrounded by music; his dad had a strict appreciation of blues and gospel, while his mother was into rock-n-roll. He used to listen to his grandmother’s records and dream about traveling while playing guitar and making a living. As a teen, he picked up his first electric guitar and knew that’s what he was supposed to do, playing guitar and singing. “When I was growing up, my dad was a bluegrass guitar player/singer. He did gospel and bluegrass; that’s all he listened to. He was a purist, so I was taught that immediately. My mother loved rock-n-roll. She liked The Beatles, The Stones and Bob Dylan, so I didn’t really make any distinction between any of that back then. It was all music; some of it was louder and some of it was slower. So I love all very deeply,” Starr recalls. “When I was a teenager, I got an electric guitar and really got into rock-n-roll and realized I could do this. I wasn’t good at football or baseball, but I was good at playing the guitar and thought this is what I was gonna do.” Be sure to see Blackberry Smoke and The Ben Miller Band at the House of Blues in Orlando April 25th. Keep up with the band on their website, on Facebook and on Twitter.

At a wedding over 40 years ago, Harry Wayne Casey (aka KC) witnessed a Junkanoo band, then music changed forever after. Junkanoo is a street parade that takes place in the Bahamas; Junkanoo music has a distinct Caribbean sound that incorporates drums, cowbells, horns, whistles and brass. KC has taken the essence of Junkanoo and infused it into music that would keep us dancing for decades. Full Access Magazine was given the opportunity to talk with KC himself to learn more about the Band’s past and its future. KC is a true Floridian; he started his music career working at an independent record label in Hialeah, Florida, named TK Records. KC did not initially set out to be an international star, he just wanted to work in the music industry in any capacity, but it was his musical experimentation in the recording studio that made him into a permanent fixture in music history. “I lived in Miami and most records came out of Detroit, Philadelphia, Memphis, Nashville, or LA…to think it could happen from Miami was pretty much a long shot,” KC explained. That long shot expanded into the opportunity for KC to transform the music of the day and introduce positive energy back into music. KC & the Sunshine Band created music that traversed many genres. They created music that combined elements of disco, pop,

11

R&B, and Junkanoo, and this unique music was instantly embraced by all audiences. Their music crossed over racial borders as well; KC was unifying different people worldwide with his music. KC took a moment to recall,” I was accepted by all races and I was excited about that because I was always told that because I was white, I would never make it in R&B…so it was great to see that I could make music that transcends color lines also.” These experiences taught him that ‘music doesn’t know colors.’ KC & The Sunshine Band released countless hits like “Blow your Whistle,” “Get Down Tonight,” “That’s the way (I like it),” “Boogie Shoes,” “I’m Your Boogie Man,” and “Shake Your Booty.” All of which have an infectious horns and percussion that stimulate muscle reflexes as soon as they are heard. These songs have topped R&B and Pop charts and have helped the band achieve many honors and awards. KC & The Sunshine Band’s music has been used to liven things up in video games, movies, commercials, and has been played at countless international and national events; there is no venue or medium that KC’s music has not reached. Even after all of this success, at every show, KC has the audience on his mind; he wants to see them enjoying themselves; he wants the party tone to carry through the whole

performance. He admits that he has ‘learned a lot from music and through the words of music…music has helped him through the good and bad times.’ He tries to use his music to conjure happiness and positivity, to help his audiences through the ups and downs. KC & The Sunshine Band has just released part 1 of a two part album, “Feeling You! The 60s.” In this album, KC strays from the band’s traditional upbeat tempo and embraces various songs from the 1960s, including songs by Bob Dylan, the Kinks, Ben E. King, the Righteous Brothers, Joni Mitchell, the Supremes and more legends of that era. “I needed to show that there was more to me than just one style or tempo of music…I wanted to experiment vocally,” KC shared,” I selected these songs that I identified with throughout my life and right now…it is a musical diary of my life.”

Part 2 of the album is due out this summer 2015, and the band is also making a Christmas record, which they have never done before. KC & The Sunshine Band is also currently on tour. They are playing all of their hits with a few songs from the new album sprinkled in. KC does not spend too much time during the show telling stories or talking to the crowd, he simply conducts a huge dance party each night. If you go to see one of the shows on this tour, you will get the opportunity to see a Junkanoo band first hand; the band will perform procession style through the audience about 15 minutes before the show starts and then the Junkanoo band will join KC & The Sunshine Band on stage at the end. KC & The Sunshine Band will be performing at the Food & Wine Festival taking place at Busch Gardens in Tampa on April 11.

With a recently-released album and a new tour underway, hard rock band Crobot hopes 2015 will be their year. Crobot is gearing up to start touring with rock heavyweights Volbeat and Anthrax. Crobot will be making a stop at the Local 662 in St Petersburg on April 11 to headline a show with Drastic Fall. Crobot’s lead singer Brandon Yeagley spent some time answering questions for Full Access Magazine. Yeagley started the interview by addressing the importance of touring with both Volbeat and Anthrax. “That is going to be an insane tour for us! It’ll be the first time we are playing arenas and I wouldn’t be surprised if all the shows sell out because of the number of Volbeat and Anthrax fans,” Yeagley said. “It’s certainly and honor to be part of such a great combo of bands…hopefully, people come early enough to check us out.” Crobot was formed in 2011 by Yeagley and guitarist Chris Bishop. The band added the brothers Figueroa, Jake (bass) and Paul (drums) in 2012 and have since released their debut late in 2014, Something Supernatural. Yeagley talks about the writing process of the album and of the album’s reception by their fans. “The response has been really great thus far… we are finishing up our tour with Black Label Society and Black Tusk in Europe and

it is really crazy to see so many people singing along in countries we’ve never been to before,” Yeagley admits. “Recently, the fellas from “That Metal Show” chose our album as their album of the week; a huge honor for us.” “We went into the album with around 50 songs; so, needless to say, we write a lot. We just lock ourselves in the “jam shed” and jam for hours,” Yeagley added. “We can write a few songs in a day if the creative juices are really flowing. Someone will bring an idea or riff to the table and we will take it to every end of the spectrum that we can. Jam sessions for a song will last an hour or so, until we fall into a structure that we are happy with. We are always recording, just in case something really cool accidentally happens. Sometimes it takes us a little bit of time to digest certain tracks. Usually, if a jam has too many speed bumps, we put it on the stockpile with the others that may need a little more thought or digestion. However, we tend to gravitate towards the ideas that seem to fall together more quickly.” Something Supernatural is a 45 minute fusion of heavy rock, loud guitar riffs and chord progression. The album finishes its 11 song journey with the lone rock-ballad, Queen of the Light. According to Yeagley, the song tells the story of the Princess of Darkness wanting for a chance at life out of Hell.

Yeagley talks of the band’s writing process. “We worked on the song for a few sessions and brought it into a jam session we did at the Wind-Up studio space in sort of a preproduction run through of our tracks. We jammed that song and I pretty much wrote the lyrics on a piece of tablet paper from start to finish in a half hour or so. I still have that piece of paper, actually,” Yeagley said. “The song is about the Princess of the Underworld wanting to change her evil ways and trade her reign in darkness for a life in the light.” “We just let the songs write themselves really. Whatever sounds good is good. We don’t talk too much about what kind of songs we want to write before we start jamming. Some songs call for a slower part here or a fast bridge. That’s the beauty of what we do. The writing process is completely organic.” Crobot spends much of their time touring and trying to get exposure. Having just finished their tour with Black Label Society and Black Tusk in Europe, and preparing to tour with Anthrax and Volbeat, Crobot participated in the recent Shiprocked cruise. They performed on a cruise ship with a lineup that included Limp Bizkit, Sevendust, Chevelle and Filter among the 27 artists. Yeagley talks about that experience as well as the band’s exhausting tour schedule. “Shiprocked was an amazing experience! It was our first time on a cruise ship and it was a crazy week! I don’t think my liver’s endurance and durability was tested as much as on that vessel. We didn’t get a chance to collaborate with any bands on the boat other than tanking alcohol together, but hopefully there will be a next time for us,” Yeagley said. “We love being on the road. We are home when we are in a different city every night. We wouldn’t want to be anywhere in the world than on that stage spilling our souls out all over that stage. It’s really part of our homeostasis,” Yeagley added. “When we go

too long without playing a gig, we get ornery. Seeing the response overseas and seeing our fan bases growing, really feeds into the passion that we have for what we do. We want to make this world a smaller place for us.” Within the next few months, Crobot will be releasing a Deluxe Edition of Something Supernatural that will feature some extra tracks, including four new ones. They spend most of their time either touring or writing new material. Yeagley is emphatic when talking of the importance of staying close to their fan base and even have been known to party with fans during some shows. “We are always hanging out with our fans and we want to go down as that band that partied with their fans. If you want to meet us, just come see us! Your best bet is to hang by the merch stand or the bar and mention anything about Zeppelin, Sabbath, or weed. That’s bound to get our attention,” Yeagley said. “Did we mention that we love booze, beards and weed?” Be sure to see Crobot, with Drastic Fall and Shotglass Serenade at the Local 662 in St. Petersburg on April 11. Keep up with Crobot on their website, on Facebook and on Twitter.

Crobot will be performing April 11th at the Local 662 in St. Petersburg and at the West End Live in Sanford on April 10th. Tickets are still available for both these shows. Full Access Magazine

Full Access Magazine had the chance to sit down and talk with Chuck Garric, bass player for Alice Cooper, before their show to discuss his own band, Beasto Blanco. We asked Chuck how he finds time between Beasto Blanco and Alice Cooper and he responded, “The nice thing about being involved with Alice, which has been the last 13 years of my life, is that it’s a pretty set schedule. So I got a pretty good idea what my downtime is going to look like. So with that being said, it’s just one of those things where it’s just a natural progression as a musician and as an artist. You end up filling in your downtime with hopefully just staying creative and being creative. So, Beasto Blanco became this natural progression for me as I was writing more songs and staying busy on my downtime writing stuff for Alice’s records or other people’s records as well, but just seemed to be one of those things that just kind of started. So I just make it happen and do what I can and fill in the gaps where I can.” Beasto Blanco consists of Chuck Garric on vocals and guitar, Chris Latham on guitar, Jan LeGrow on bass, Tim Husung on drums, Calico Cooper on vocals and Tiffany Lowe on synthesizer. We asked Chuck how they decided to use Alice Cooper’s daughter Calico Cooper

and he said, “When I was demoing up the first record, I had wrote a song called, Breakdown, and when I was singing some of the background parts for this one section of the tune, I kept hearing this certain style of voice in my head, and I had nobody in mind really of who it was going to be. But as we started getting into the studio and tracking it, I remember telling producer Tommy Hendricks, and saying, ‘Hey, this part I hear a girl’s voice,’ and we thought, ‘What if we called Calico and had her come over and sing because she’s got kind of a raspy voice.’ We called her and she came in, and did so well on the ‘Breakdown’ bit that it gave this new life to Beasto Blanco. It was really kind of cool, we had her then track Live Fast Die Loud that day and some backgrounds on Freak.” Chuck tells us that, “Every time I put on a Motorhead record or an old AC/DC record or every time I hear Accept, or an old White Zombie record, I get influenced. That type of music just gets me going, that’s what inspires me, and also, one of the biggest reasons is the reaction to this last record. It’s been overwhelming. People really love this record and they’re so excited for this March run that we’re doing on the West Coast. We’ve had phenomenal response over in Europe from

this record and people are into it. So, as long as people are listening to it, and wanting to come, then I’ll keep writing the music. But I’d just have to say the fans are a big part of it, absolutely!” Beasto has a new album that they are working on and Chuck tells us it’s going really good. He says, “I’m really proud of it but we don’t have a release date or anything like that. We’re hoping to get a couple songs out maybe by the time the tour starts in March just to release a single or something. The record is starting to really develop its own sound, its own life. I mean, obviously it sounds like Beasto Blanco, and it’s going to be very similar to what you heard on the first record, but I’d like to say as a songwriter and as the Beasto is starting to take life. There’s even more to grab onto and lyrically and musically it’s gotten even more intense.” We asked Chuck, if he knows what the names of the tracks are yet and he responded, “Oh, I’ve got names for tracks, but I’ll keep them secret until their date of birth, if you will! “ We asked Chuck what does he feel is his biggest accomplishment as of now and why and he responded,” That’s a good question, I think I’ve had a lot of killer things happen to me in my life. I got to play in a band with Ronnie James Dio, and I co-wrote a song with him and became friends with him. If you would have told me that,

“You’re not going to do anything else after that,” I’d been like, “Fine, that’s great.” But then I get into Alice Cooper, and I get to be part of this and do five, six records with Alice and tour the world and become friends with people I grew up listening to like, the guys in Maiden, and opening for The Rolling Stones, Deep Purple, Motley Crue, Manson and Rob Zombie and all these guys. I mean, I can’t even begin to think about what was my biggest accomplishment. The fact that I’m fucking playing music and touring the world, to me that’s an accomplishment. I love it, I’ve been lucky enough to have this as a career. So, I just hope that the accomplishments haven’t stopped. I’ve got a great life right now, rocking’s my business and business is good!” Right now, Beasto Blanco’s will be touring the West coast but they would like to hit every place they possibly can, especially in the states. Chuck states, “Everything and anything is possible right now and Beasto is still an empty canvas, it’s still one of those things where it can go anywhere. We definitely have a really good idea of what we want out of it and that is to continue to tour and continue to make records!” You can following Beasto Blanco on Twitter, Facebook or via their website at www.beastoblanco.com.

Jimmy Whispers Summer In Pain Moniker Records 33332 by Terry Canter

In another life, Jimmy Whispers was James Cicero, vocalist and frontman for Chicagobased indie pop ensemble Light Pollution. After that group dissolved some years back, Whispers adopted his childhood nickname—he was a soft-spoken kid—for his solo work. His keyboard demos attracted the attention of fellow lo-fi eccentric Ariel Pink, who invited him to open a few of his shows. Whispers may have appeared as a kindred spirit to Pink, but the Midwestern songwriter approaches his work with far less theatricality and chaos than the volatile L.A. figure. His quick, sweet debut Summer in Pain is pared down to the basics, spelling out heartbreak and frustration with a triedand-true palette of organs, drum machines, and a world-weary tremble. While Pink at times seems almost unconscious of the labels people apply to his work, Whispers breaks out the B-word within his album's first 30 seconds. He introduces himself as "the greatest bedroom popper...in the tri-state area" before he sings a note. Later in the record, he punctuates songs with interludes in the same register, decrying how he feels like a lost soul in a pre-apocalyptic world. I think he's trying to humanize himself with these gestures, to point out the absurdity of making bedroom pop about his feelings before he goes and does it anyway. But to crack open the fourth wall before he's even built it comes through as a little self-conscious, a little insecure. Those bedroom pop songs about his feelings, though, are worth the corny showmanship that pads them. Like Owen Ashworth of Advance Base (formerly Casiotone for the Painfully Alone), Whispers can wring heart from a cheap set 21

of keys. The album's middle section shows off his skill at crafting grooves and melodies; "Heart Don't Know" strikes a sugar-coated melancholy with its warm chords churning underneath Whispers' ragged voice. On "Pain in Love", he laments, "I wanna change the way I feel tonight/ I wanna love again." He writes rudimentary lines, but sometimes the best way to undercut depression and desire is just to spell them out in the plainest terms. Sometimes all you need to feel better is just to ask for it. "Love is easy when you don't give a shit," Whispers advises on "Michael, Don't Cry". "Life is easy when you want to die." The only conclusions he manages to reach on Summer in Pain contradict themselves, but they're the best indication of where his head's at. Here's a guy trying to claw his way out of a tangled emotional state by pretending he's surrounded by clean lines. It works when he sticks to the music. The spoken-word framing screams "look at me, I'm here, I exist," when the songs are enough to convince us in the first place. Ranger Where Evil Dwells Spinefarm ggg4f by Terry Canter

Helsinki speed metal quartet Ranger's 2013 EP Knights of Darkness captured all the classic, leather-clad menace of the pre-thrash early '80s with a demonic grin on its face. Few younger bands capture just how fucking fun heavy metal can be to listen to, but Ranger take riffs and speed very seriously and little else, which appeals to those wanting a rush without the seriousness of other, more extreme genres. On their full-length debut, Where Evil Dwells, they retain much of what made Knights memorable, while tweaking their sound just slightly to accommodate a

Full Access Magazine


longer running time. With two new guitarists, Ville Valtonen and Mikael Haavisto, Ranger throw in some classic NWOBHM licks in addition to the mix of Canadian and German speed metal they’ve cut their teeth on thus far. The melodic leads and anthemic vocals of "Dead Zone", for example, could be from Angel Witch or a pre-Bruce Dickinson Iron Maiden cut. Where Knights proved just how relentless they can be, Evil reveals an ear for catchiness too. "Phantom Soldier" features some of their most gripping riffs, especially the bridge breakdown. You can easily imagine singer Dimi Pontiac (who also plays bass) whipping a crowd into a fist-pumping frenzy over it. With a need to make a strong debut statement comes sharper production, and Pontiac’s vocals benefit the most. His voice is much higher in the mix, which greater outlines his snarl. His high screams are still in evidence, but Evil’s production illuminates his normal singing voice, which has a snarky bite not unlike a less nasally Dave Mustaine. The attitude in his vocals carries as much weight as their riffs, and allows Ranger to harness the most adrenaline from their songs. Ranger take one big risk on Evil—the ten-minute title track, just under half the length of Knights. Is it their "At War With Satan", Venom’s infamous 20-minute orgy of Satanic excess? Not quite: It sounds like they took two Ranger songs and just smashed them together. The only issue with "Evil" is its placement; it should close out the album, not the single "Storm of Power". "Storm of Power" is Ranger at their most concentrated and reckless, a blitz of light-speed solos, breakneck rhythms, and gang vocals, but it would work better placed earlier, as a way to build towards "Evil". But Metallica worked in a similar approach on Master of Puppets by placing the grand instrumental "Orion" before

the apocalyptic rager "Damage, Inc." Metallica, however, did things most bands couldn’t, then or now. It's a minor sequencing issue, though, and on the whole, Evil is not just an amped-up take on a classic form, but an exhilarating testament to how and why metal continues to gain younger converts. Eskmo SOL Apollo Records gggff by Terry Canter

With a discography stretching back to the late '90s and a string of high-profile stopovers on some of the key destinations for abstract bass music—Planet Mu, Ninja Tune, Warp—Eskmo's career itself has been more enduring than any individual record he's put out. He hasn't had the chance to define himself with a signature style. Not that he hasn't had some highlights: 2003's Ascension and its glitched-up d'n'b, the sun-drenched prog-dubstep of '09 single "Hypercolor", and his oddly idyllic take on electro-house on 2012's Language made a career of constant digressions worth following. With his more recent work paring back the gloss and bloat of big-statement Eskmo, a turn to more open-spaced, modern-classical influenced compositions feels like a solid decision. The mannered, show-offy crooning about "morning mist and firefly dust" over "Blue and Grey" and the vague, Mattel-Peter Gabriel cheapness of "Mind of War" break the mood, putting the focus more on an (not especially engaging) individual voice than the feeling of bigger-than-all-of-us cosmic heat the record's best moments invoke. At least it's just one of dozens of voices he's worked with over the years—he'll find plenty more before it's all said and done.

The Soul Trippers, The Tempests, The Tropics, and White Witch. The Tampa Bay Music Network recently held their 7th Annual TBMN Music Awards show. Among the winners included Stonegrey who received the “2015 Favorite Up-andComing Band” award, and UnderCover Betty’s drummer, Kana Leimbech, who received the “2015 Favorite Drummer Award.” Leimbech’s win marks UnderCover Betty’s third TBMN award in three years. Former Rare Earth drummer and Tampa Bay resident, Jerry LeBloch, has been moved to a hospital in Grand Blanc, Michigan to be close to his daughter. LeBloch was initially hospitalized following his move to Gulfport, Mississippi back in January. Reportedly, LeBloch has most recently been diagnosed with lung cancer, as well as tumors developing on his brain. This is in addition to the stage-4 colon & liver cancer that LeBloch has been battling for over a year. Unfortunately, the outcome still does not look promising for LeBloch. A memorial fund has been set up to help LeBloch’s daughter out with expenses. Anyone who would like to help out is asked to make a donation at http://www.gofundme.com/l89plg.
