Too Drunk...

No, I'm not too drunk to review the Def Leppard/Billy Idol concert I just attended - just too tired. I have a very early meeting but hopefully I can get my review up by mid-morning, so please check back several times throughout the day. In the meantime, watch the new Buckcherry video for "Too Drunk..." I'm still pumped from their performance at Crue Fest. What a show. By the way, Buckcherry's new album Black Butterfly is due out September 16.

I am SO jealous that you saw Billy Idol, I bet it was awesome. I am looking forward to the review, I am seeing DL in Australia in Nov.

Also stoked about the new Buckcherry, I loved '15'.

Is it just me or is the new Buckcherry song LAME?? I mean seriously, Im too drunk? Sounds like something I would expect from an amateur junior high band... Im sorry, I like them alot, but I lose respect for artists that write such sophmoric material.

Rolling Stone named Josh Todd second most likely to be named lead singer of Velvet Revolver out of a list of 15. First was Chris Cornell, and third was the great Sebastian Bach (who I'm rooting for). 15th was Ozzy lol, ya right, dream on Rolling Stone. Anyway, do you guys believe that Josh Todd would be willing to leave Buckcherry for VR? Please feel free to give your opinion at this point, because it feels like new stuff is being thrown out every week about their decision.

Kenny, the lyrics are nothing great, but check out some AC/DC sometime.

Michael, I don't see that happening. I think VR is done. Bring on the GnR reunion ( and Axl is why I'd say forget Sebastian )

I luv ya Kenny but I agree just listen to some AC/DC! it's rock 'n' roll baby!!

Kenny.. I agree that lyrics are important, and this song is clearly not the best that Buckcherry has to offer.
But, on the flip side.. "Motherfucker of the Year" isn't the most lyrically compelling song Motley Crue has ever released.. but it's a good song. The crowd sure seemed to love it at Crue Fest. MC certainly has songs that are much better written, but I doubt we will ever hear them live.
I guess it all comes down to mass appeal, and sometimes the masses don't have great taste.

Why is Def Leppard and Billy Idol touring together? They are totally different genres!

I have to confess that I have never heard Buckcherry before.... But now I have! That song was fookin awesome.

Also, i'm extremely jealous of everyone living in America at the moment, because I highly doubt Cruefest will come to Europe, they dont have a very big following here. And after your review, i'm dying to see them, notthat I wasnt already.

That list someone was talking about didn't name who was most likely to join VR, it was the result of a poll that RS readers could take and vote for who they wanted as a singer.

I think the song is great and to me BC is one of the best current rock bands out there...The video for this is funny as well! Can't wait for the new cd to come out.

just_jeepin ... different genres? No. They are both rock. They could even both be placed in the "hard rock" subgenre. I think the Crue Fest had more of an odd lineup than DL/Idol.
August 22, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterJT
I agree with you on the Crue Fest lineup. But to me, Billy Idol is rock (in the same genre as U2, The Rolling Stones, etc.) Not hard rock like (Def Leppard, Warrant, Ratt, etc.).

P.S. I hate how Time Warner cable lists all these "New Metal" bands as "Metal"!
