(Eat) The Crow


Happy weekend, glam fans!

Last night I received a very intriguing Myspace alert from Kenny Ozz, lead singer of Cincinnati based Drugstore Valentine. On Friday, May 18 Kenny and his clan will perform in the 80s Metal Fest along with the hairband tribute Poser and GnR, a tribute to Guns n' Roses.

I love tribute bands.

In addition to these local musicians, C.C. DeVille of Poison will also be there! Everyone knows how I feel about Poison.

You might recall I've written about Drugstore Valentine before. I don't know how he does it, but Kenny seems to catch every rock show in the tri-state area. I've made some disparaging comments about Mr. Ozz in the past, but no more. It's time for me to eat some crow and give credit where it's due. Kenny Ozz is part of the revolution. Yes, he's bringing back glam. Visit them at

The lead singer of GnR actually sounds like Axl Rose. For most of us, a tribute band of the classic formation of Guns n' Roses is about as close as we'll ever get to the real thing. It's not like Chinese Democracy is coming out anytime soon. Add them by visiting

Back to Poser. This tribute band intrigues me much. I gave them a listen, and they're not too bad. Seems they are based in Columbus so I'm a little surprised I've never heard of them before. Perhaps the best thing about Poser is they feature "American Hairband" by Tuff on their Myspace page. Add Poser by visiting them at

I love the song "American Hairband" in a very big way. For some crappy reason, the song isn't available through iTunes, but it is the featured track on the Myspace home of Bring Back Glam! For this reason - and to celebrate my new affection for Kenny Ozz and Drugstore Valentine - "American Hairband" is our official song obsession for the week.

Here's a pretty cool video montage of some really great bands set to "American Hairband."

Well.... I am pretty happy that you have come around I must say. I do work VERY hard to try to attend and bring back the shows of a great lost era. My band and I are very excited about the show with CC and we have had the honor of playing with L.A. Guns and other "Hair Metal" icons. I was upset with this site for their comments previously but it looks as if the site has learned its lesson.....Lets hope so anyway. I hope to see you all at the shows..

P.S. Stevie Rachelle from Tuff "American Hairband" is actually a pretty good friend of mine and calls me on the phone on a regular basis. He's a great guy and the most down to earth "rockstar" you will ever meet.

Are you holding out on me? Where is the hairrific show going to be? Is this the upcoming deal with CC at Whiskey Dicks?

Hey Hardrock...

Yeah, it's the Whiskey Dicks show. Are you going?! The good news is that May 18 is a Friday night and the show probably doesn't start until way after 9.

If you click that Drugstore Valentine link above, there's a show poster that has info, etc.

Another band is also playing - Cock Fight - which features Joe Leste of Bang Tango. I didn't write about them in this post because I am planning a seperate post dedicated to Bang Tango.

Hi Allyson,
