So the Lollapalooza lineup is out for this summer -- it was released just yesterday. While I didn't find any Glam bands on the massive list, my eyes did stop on The Pretty Reckless. "They sound Glam," I thought. So I looked them up on YouTube and clicked their video for "Miss Nothing." I have to admit I was immediately impressed.
The Pretty Reckless are not Glam, but the influence is there to be sure. And the singer, Taylor Momsen (she was on Gossip Girl, by the way), sounds like a mix of Carrie Underwood, Niki Barr and Lady Gaga. I like the guitar riff and the video for "Miss Nothing." At one point, Momsen is prancing around on the long dinner table and I was instantly reminded of the table/guitar solo scene in RATT's "Round and Round" video. The good news is that now I've got a new band to get into and follow.
The Pretty Reckless are on Interscope and they've got other big shows coming up besides Lollapalooza including Germany's Rock Am Ring. Check them out if you don't know them and give me your opinion.
