ORIANTHI Panagaris was just another musician trying to make her way in the music scene. But she had one advantage: Orianthi could play guitar. Really well. So well, in fact, that she’s since performed with guitar legends Steve Vai and Carlos Santana, as well as stars like Carrie Underwood, Prince and Michael Jackson.
She’s got her own PRS guitar signature line, a solo album, Believe, and she’s now in Alice Cooper’s band, who’ll be performing here on Oct 5.

I LIKE my job because sometimes my job requires me to meet up with people like this guy… Continue reading ‘THE WEEK THAT WAS: Singfest Day 3′
This year’s Singfest was given a theme for each of the days. Day One was the “pop” or as I call it, Eye Candy Day. Day Two was Urban Attitude, and Day Three was Get Deaf Day.
Admittedly, it’s a little difficult for me to review Singfest. No, I’m not copping out. But here’s the deal: Most times, people say they want a review, but what they really want is a report.

But even before the first note was played we got to meet Katy Perry at the Marina Bay Sands’ suite. Wearing a white almost see-through dress, we talked for a bit before heading to a listening session for her new album, and then to the pool for her press conference. Wearing a bikini. (That’s Katy Perry wearing the bikini, not me.) Continue reading ‘THE WEEK THAT WAS: Katy Perry got us wet’
HAIL THE VILLAIN hails from Canada and is probably one of the few rock bands that I’ve actually liked recently. And they’ve got a great live show too. Their debut album Population: Declining, was originally released in 2006, but it’s been re-released again after they got signed to Roadrunner Records, THE label for anything that rocks hard.
AND Hail The Villain will be here for SingFest 2010. We got Hail The Villain singer Bryan Crouch on the blower for a few words.
Hey there! What’s been happening with you guys? We’re up at the cottage relaxing. We’ve been touring and we have two weeks off before we do some more shows in the States and Canada.
I must say, I’m not really a fan of anything harder than classic rock, but I was really blown away by your website. We wanted to go over the top and I think we did.
