Some More M3 Rumors

Posted on Saturday, December 31, 2011 at 12:01AM by Registered CommenterAllyson B. Crawford | Comments11 Comments

It's the last day of the year, ya'll. Before you get all kooky and party hard tonight, I wanted to leave you with something to chew on well into 2012. Yes, more M3 rumors.

We already know we're getting Quiet Riot and Warrant at M3 2012. A little birdie told me XYZ was a lock as well. Then I heard some rumors about Femme Fatale and Enuff Z'Nuff. Right now, I'd also put money on Stryper and Sweet. So we'll see soon I guess. I gotta admit that I'd be cool with both Femme Fatale and Enuff Z'Nuff. I've never seen Femme Fatale live and you all know how much I like to add bands to my master "I've seen them live" list!

Enjoy your New Year's Eve party plans tonight and please be careful. And if you're seeing any fun shows, be sure to report back!

I really would like to see the Scorpions headline again this year. Jackyl, Steel Panther would be cool to see again. I'm going on the Monsters of Rock cruise, which has a lot of the bands on it that I would normally want to see at M3. I may skip M3 this year if the lineup isn't what I want it to be. Happy New Year!

I'm with Rick! Where are the big headliners? Enuff z'Nuff (saw 'em off their first album point blank at The Cat Club way back when with the mighty Derek Frigo) and Femme Fatale (so want to see them! Oh, the killarity!) M3 needs at least two, like they did two years ago with Scorps and Cinderella.

Maybe the organizers want to wait 'til later to announce any biggies, thinking they can get by on the buzz of Quiet Riot and acts like these, taking "The Big Build-up" approach to hypin' the event. Or they're still trollin' and negotiatin', which is probably more the case.

Here's some strong main stage suggestions (IMHO): Child's Play (they were the number two local faves behind Kix back in the day and would be huge Saturday night as they would be playin' to a "hometown crowd" here. They're out playin' again so they could probably get 'em. And for Sunday night, I would love to see Darkness! For me, that would be borderline headliner material. Definitely third slot level.

Justin and the Boyz are back together and tourin', so, as far as I'm concerned, they would be a HUGE get. If Darkness put out a new album and the promoters placed 'em in the third to last slot in the line-up behind the two as-yet-to-be-announced (I hope) headliners, that would work for me!

I'm with Metalboy if the Darkness was added I would be willing to travel from Michigan for the show. Unlike most I think Femme Fatel is a great band to be added and my interest is peaking. Personally I would like to see some bands like Tigertailz and Crashdiet added to the bill. I will have to find out when tickets go on sale as I have yet to attend an M3 event.

Femme Fatale' was a great band. If they're playing, it's FF in name only. Doesn't matter, as long as Lorraine is singing, that's all you'll watch anyway. She's a Class A performer. I saw her about a year ago, she had a band called "L.A. Nookie" that was doing covers & a few FF classics. Good show.
I shot them on video in this tiny dark club, here they are doing the Runaways' "Cherry Bomb" & Joan Jett's "I Love Rock & Roll"... Enjoy.

XYZ sounds good. We'll be seeing them on the Monsters of Rock cruise in February.

Hey Ace. Checked out your Youtube channel. Some really cool shit on there my man!

Yeah, Ace! Frickin' AWESOME!

BTW, have you heard that lost 2nd Femme Fatale album? Like I said, SunCity Records was supposed to release it, but it never happened.

Just wonderin' if it got leaked out into the universe.

Happy Nude Year! Er... um... Crüe Year!

Dangin' auto-correct, hahaha!!!

I haven't heard the mysterious 2nd Femme Fatale' record, but I'd like to! Mazzi Rawd, their keyboardist/rhythm guitarist was a heck of a writer, & FF were already a dynamic live act by the time MCA came sniffing around. There was a LOT of "image work" MCA put in to them... before that, Lorraine had this flaming red hair in a Tina Turner cut. They were TIGHT live! I'd love to hear even their early demos! They had a great song called "Rock A Bye Baby" that I was shocked didn't make the first record. And thanks for the shouts out on my YouTube page, I'm glad you guys liked what I've posted up there... You should ALL go check it out & leave a comment!

Yeah, Ace! Will do! I'm glad to see you're into the Holy Grails like ACTRESS and that Runaways footage is to die for!

Also, I meant to tell you I've got all the STARZ albums on both Vinyl AND CD! I've even got a vintage STARZ T-Shirt, as well as an official STARZ logo belt buckle!

Metalboy,

I'm glad you enjoyed my YouTube stuff. STARZ is a great band that sadly a lot of people missed out on. They're still kickin' actually.. They play a handful of gigs every year for the last 5 years or so.

As for ACTRESS, "into" would be appropriate, seeing that it is/was MY band! I consider it an honor that you referred to us as one of the "holy grails". You just might hear more of Actress in the coming year! thanks!

Ace! Whoa! You were in Actress! I have read descriptions of "Holy Grail" CDs for sale on Ebay that name check your band, Actress, to reference an example of another band that particular CD on auction may sound like. Usually these are Indy CDs that were released by L.A. bands meant to send to all the record companies, as well as distribute at shows and local record stores.

The relentless pursuit of The Holy Grails of Hair Metal is what I'm most into now as dancing on the head of a pin about the same usual suspects of that era is pretty much played out for me. Speaking of played out, I probably haven't listened to "Appetite for Destruction" in 25 years, because I played it to death for 2 months straight, virtually listening to nothing else during that time except maybe Lizzy Borden, hahaha!!!

BTW, Ace, did Actress ever release a CD or Demos of any kind? And when did you form the band?
