Marshall of Rock Top 50 Tracks of 2012: 25 to 1

Happy New Year! Here's to a kick ass 2013 to all of you! I continue with my countdown of my Top 50 tracks of 2012 with numbers 25 to 1. Thanks to all these great artists for all the music in 2012, and thanks to YOU for finding your way to Marshall of Rock in 2012. We all appreciate it!

25. Halestorm - Love Bites (So Do I) - Lzzy Hale and Halestorm have firmly established themselves as a major force in American rock. Lzzy is in my opinion, one of the most dynamic and relatable vocalists in rock! The band's latest album 'The Strange Case Of...' is full of kick ass potential radio tracks, and the band is really a tight unit, hitting their full stride. 2012 kicked ass for the band, and 2013 looks to be even bigger for them!

24. Gary Clark Jr. - Ain't Messin' Around - This Austin, Texas guitarist is primed to take his cult following mainstream and become known as the next guitar legend. Playing shows with the Rolling Stones this year, being featured on 'Austin City Limits', and being part of the upcoming 'Crossroads Guitar Festival' again in 2013 with Eric Clapton and every other guitar legend imaginable will only add to his legend. Funky, bluesy and rocking, Gary Clark Jr. will be a name that has the potential to go down in history!

23. Adelitas Way - Criticize - These Las Vegas rockers had hit track after hit track from thier 'Homeschool Valedictorian' album, but this one had to be my favorite. Adelitas Way are a band who have done it right, with quality musicianship and songwriting, and the emotion delivering a track that grabbed me from the first listen. This band will continue on an upward arc!

22. Chevelle - Hats Off To The Bull - The second track on my Top 50 for 2012, 'Hats Off To The Bull' pulls no punches as it smacks you hard all the way through and never lets up. Chevelle had one hell of a 2012, and are primed to elevate their success in the future. What a kick ass track!

21. Rival Sons - Until The Sun Comes - The first entry into my Top 50 from Rival Sons, the Los Angeles based band that not many people realize are from L.A. 'Until The Sun Comes' is the second single from their second album 'Head Down' and continues the passionate retro rock vibe the band is already known for. 'Head Down' has already been released in Europe, and will soon be out in the U.S. Rival Sons have layed a solid base in the U.K. and Europe, and I know they are poised to duplicate that success in 2013 in the U.S., blowing away audiences and hopefully getting some radio airplay with their brand of rock.

20. Shinedown - Unity - The second Shinedown track on the Top 50, the vocals from Brent Smith on 'Unity' convey hope with an uplifing spirit. A great track from a great band!

19. The Black Keys - Gold On The Ceiling - Another band with their second track on my Top 50, this to me is the definitive Black Keys track of 2012. As much acclaim as Black Keys received in 2012, if they can continue on this level, they potentially could one day be one of the few current bands worthy of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame consideration.

18. Heart - Fanatic - Speaking of Rock and Roll Hall of Famers, here is one of the latest inductees: Heart! Their latest album 'Fanatic' is quality from start to finish and leads off with this rocking title track. Ann & Nancy Wilson haven't lost anything vocally or musically over the years and this is proof. Looking forward to a 2013 of recognition for the great leaders of female rock! Heart rules!

17. Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators - Standing In The Sun - The second single from the 'Apocalyptic Love' album from Slash and his band, it is probably my second favorite song from the album as well! Slash has always done it right and delivered musically in his post Guns N' Roses career, but with Myles Kennedy on vocals and the other superior musicians in his latest band, he really has outdone himself. It's good to know that this current band will be all getting together to do another album in the future!

16. Aerosmith - Lover Alot - The second Aero track from 'Music From Another Dimension', 'Lover Alot' harks back to the early days of Aerosmith. I really like the production on the track from Jack Douglas, it's raw and gritty and I dig it!

15. Joe Bonamassa - Driving Toward The Daylight - My favorite Bonamassa track from his fantastic album with the same title. Joe continues to gain more and more fans every day, and for those that haven't been exposed to the emotion and feeling that Joe brings in his guitar playing and vocals, once you hear it, you will be hooked. Kevin Shirley's production work with Joe is a perfect combination.

14. Black Stone Cherry - Like I Roll - BSC have their second track in the Top 50 with 'Like I Roll.' Black Stone Cherry are true American Rock and Roll! Can't wait to see what's next for the band - they will be writing and getting ideas together for their next project in 2013.

13. Europe - Not Supposed To Sing The Blues - This isn't the 'Final Countdown' Europe you may remember. When I mentioned to others how great the new Europe is, they always mention 'Countown', but after hearing this fantastic track, their image of the band has changed. This was another of the tracks in 2012 that when I first heard it, it blew me away. I had to listen to it over and over. Joey Tempest is one of the most appreciative and humblest frontmen in rock, and the band deserves all the success it has received. Europe was recently named the #3 all time band in their native Sweden. The band played some shows in Europe in 2012, but hopefully 2013 will bring Europe to America for a tour. I want to see this track played live!

12. Black Country Communion - Confessor -  BCC do it old-school, cranking out albums in succession in minimal time and delivering every time. Their was some discord between band members this year, as Glenn Hughes really wanted to tour behind BCC's latest album 'Afterglow,' even mentioning that if that didn't happen, this could be the last release from the band. I hope not. Guitarist Joe Bonamassa is committed to his solo career, which I understand, but time must be made to play live with what in my opinion is one of the best band's in the last 10 years. This is Rock!

11. Kill Devil Hill - Strange - The supergroup featuring drummer Vinny Appice (Black Sabbath, Dio, Heaven & Hell), bassist Rex Brown (Pantera, Down), guitarist Mark Zavon and lead vocalist Dewey Bragg (former Pissing Razors), bring hard rock back in a big way. Named after the town of Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina, a location renowned from pirating days, they sound like hard rock pirates, attacking their music in a way few new band's can. Kill Devil Hill's self-titled debut album was released this past May, and I really felt they didn't get the acclaim or recognition they deserved with it. It will happen with their second album, which hopefully we will hear in 2013.

10. The Rolling Stones - Doom and Gloom - One of the two new tracks from The Rolling Stones 'Grrr!' greatest hits release, 'Doom and Gloom' impacts immediately. It is completely relevant in both message and musically. I wish the Stones would put out an entire new album of material, as by all indications from this track it would be the right time for it. Great track from the musical legends!

9. Pop Evil - Bosses Daughter - The West Michigan rockers have had many ups and downs in their musical career, but they are definitely ending 2012 on a high note, rocking at a gig in Las Vegas where they are sure to play this track from the 'War Of Angels' album. Co-written with Mick Mars of Motley Crue, 'Bosses Daughter' is a high energy kick ass rocker with a video to go along with it. Not only is Mars featured prominently in the clip, so is Playboy Playmate Jessa Hinton and other amazing beauties. This is the kind of video we really don't see anymore. It reminded me of the old MTV Headbanger's Ball days, where eye candy was a prerequisite for every clip. Thanks for bringing it back Pop Evil!

8. Chickenfoot - Different Devil - A cut from the Chickenfoot III album that garned a majority of its airplay in 2012, 'Different Devil' has feeling and emotion lyrically and musically. If you think there's someone better: RUN AWAY...Into the arms of something new...YOU CAN STAY...If you think he'll treat you better than I do...Turn around babe...I'll be right here waiting for you. Chickenfoot will be on hiatis for 2013, with Chad Smith fully committed to Red Hot Chili Peppers and Joe Satriani to solo gigs, but Sammy Hagar will be playing shows with the Wabos, and has talked of another possible project with bandmate and buddy Michael Anthony.

7. Foxy Shazam - I Like It - I went to 'The Church of Rock and Roll' and it was all good! This was another one of those 'first listen' cuts that you initially knew would do really well. These white boys obviously love big black asses, sing about it, and invite everyone else along for the party.

6. Redlight King - Comeback - An inspiring track with a message of redemption. Originally on the 'Avengers' soundtrack, this track is uplifting and gives hope, at least it did to me. I "Felt" this track this year. If you have had a bad 2012, don't worry in 2013 you too will make a 'Comeback.' Thanks Redlight King

5. Rival Sons - Face Of Light - The second Rival Sons track in my Top 50. 'Face Of Light' is from the Rival Sons album "Pressure In Time'. With a multitude of emotion, Jay Buchanan (vocals), Scott Holiday (guitar), Michael Miley (drums) and Robin Everhart (bass), bring music that takes you to a different place. Listen to the track with eyes closed first, then watch the video second. I can't say how glad I am that Rival Sons are making music in 2012 and beyond.

4. Charm City Devils - Man Of Constant Sorrow - Baltimore, Maryland's own Charm City Devils get the #4 spot on my Top 50 with their remake of the American folk song originally recorded by Dick Burnett. The song's popularity was rekindled with the Soggy Bottom Boys version of it from the 'O' Brother Where Art Thou' motion picture. Charm City Devils decided to record a rocked up version of the song, made it the first single from their 'Sins' album, and let the ass kicking begin! I can't wait for the next album from these talented guys.

3. Van Halen - Stay Frosty - My favorite track from the 'A Different Kind Of Truth' album, 'Stay Frosty' sounds to me like it should have been blasting out of radios this summer. It's a fun jam with awesome guitar licks from Eddie and the party filled vocals from David Lee Roth. There are many great tracks on 'A Different Kind Of Truth', but this one lands at #3 for me.

2. Rival Sons - Keep On Swinging - The first single from the 'Head Down' album, and the third track from Rival Sons in my Top 50. Labeled a Los Angeles band, they actual originate from Long Beach, California. Rival Sons bring a dynamic retro rock vibe without sounding dated or nostalgic! This nearly made it to #1, but three cuts in my Top 50 shows how legitimate Rival Sons are to me. They should be to you too!

1. Slash - You're A Lie - My #1 track of the year goes to Rock and Roll and Hollywood Walk of Famer Slash. Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators are primed to take on the rest of this decade with fury and authority. When I first heard Myles Kennedy would be recording an entire album with Slash, I knew it would be great because of their previous collaborations. That continued with 'You're A Lie', one kick ass track from a legend of rock and his great band! Congrats Slash!!

‘Ex-Wives of Rock’ to premiere on FUSE TV on December 7th, watch sneak preview

Set in Los Angeles, Fuse's all-new series 'Ex-Wives of Rock' tells the stories of the women who married, divorced and lived to tell the tales of what it means to love a rock star and the lifestyle that comes with it.

The show follows video vixen Susan Dixon (ex-wife of Warrant bassist Jerry Dixon), Cherry Pie rock goddess Bobbie Brown (ex-wife of Warrant frontman Jani Lane), drummer and Tommy Lee’s sister, Athena Lee (ex-wife of Scorpions drummer James Kottak) and Sharise Neil (ex-wife of Mötley Crüe frontman Vince Neil).

'Ex-Wives of Rock' is co-produced by the former Femme Fatale frontwoman Lorraine Lewis and narrated by Shannon Tweed (wife of Kiss bassist Gene Simmons).

Throughout each episode, you will see all sides of the four ex-wives: the good, the bad and the ugly. You’ll witness family drama, messed up love lives and friendships crash and burn. We’ll see the glamorous red carpet events, the seedy rock clubs, the fabulous hotel lunches and the quiet dinners at home.

Being 'hair band groupies' is far in the past for these now late-thirties, early-forties ladies; but that doesn’t mean their rock ‘n’ roll days are over. Their journey begins where one life has ended and another one has just begun. They are Mothers. Business Owners. Partiers. And ladies of the L.A. lifestyle.

Ex-Wives of Rock premieres Friday, December 7th at 10:30/9:30C as part of the new Fuse Friday Nights. Check out www.fuse.tv for more info on the show.

Vince Neil of Motley Crue breaks his foot, but the show must go on!

Vince Neil of Motley Crue broke his foot during Motley Crue's set last night (Sept. 12) at the Blossom Music Center in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio on 'The Tour' with KISS and The Treatment. Vince confirmed the injury in a Twitter post, writing, "Cleveland tonight. Paramedics think I broke my foot. I hope not. Getting X-ray tomorrow in Toronto. Thanks Cleveland for understanding!!"

Neil tweeted today after the X-rays, "Yea it's broke!!" Neil also said: "[It's] two fractured bones [but] the show must go on!!" He adds, "I'm sorry I won't be able to give you the show you deserve!"

MÖTLEY CRÜE has released the following statement:

"While [MÖTLEY CRÜE singer] Vince Neil sustained two fractures in his foot during last night's show in Cuyahoga Falls [Ohio],we'd like to let everyone know that this injury will not affect upcoming shows on 'The Tour' with KISS. Tonight's [Thursday, September 13] show in Toronto will go on as planned, though perhaps with a few less high kicks from Mr. Neil. Vince would like to sincerely thank everyone who has reached out with well wishes!"

'The Tour' continues tonight in Toronto, Ontario before hitting New York and Massachusetts over the weekend. After that he’ll have to get through six more shows.

Jani Lane ‘biography’ letter posted by ex-wife Bobbie Brown

by on Aug.29, 2012, under ROCK NEWS

Jani Lane ‘biography’ letter posted by ex-wife Bobbie Brown

Bobbie Brown has posted a hand written biography on her facebook page written by her late ex-husband Jani Lane. Apparently dated July 2011, it was written  just weeks before Jani's death on August 11th, 2011.

In the writing, Jani revealed that he may have been coming to terms with his place in life as the "Cherry Pie" guy. And in a erie way - he sends a message to all when he says; "everyday above ground is a gift"in his closing coments. Metal Sludge first brought the posting to light. Check them out at:  www.metalsludgetv.com

"Wow i just read this . a hand written bio jani wrote about his life a month before he died. my cousin apparently did the web site or helped with it. but it's really amazing..." Bobbie Brown

About Jani Lane
HI…JANI LANE here! For the first time in my career I’m taking the time to write my own bio. Something always seems to get lost in the translation when you have a third party handle something so personal (names politely omitted) Anyway, since I’ve been known to write a thing or two…here goes.

I was born Feb.1 1964 in Akron Ohio. My mother, Eileen Oswald, was a huge JFK fan and was heartbroken over the recent assassination. My father, Robert Oswald (no relation to Lee Harvey, whatsoever “for the 10 millionth time”) was a stout, German, blue collar, tire maker and Democrat. Needless to say, he was also a big JFK fan. Long story short, in tribute to, in my opinion, the last “REAL” President, my brilliant parents (I loved them both dearly) decided to name me John Kennedy Oswald…no joke. After about a month of harassing phone calls they changed my name to John Patrick Oswald and I was off and running!

At the age of 6 my brother, Eric Oswald bought me my first kit of drums and turned me on to a record called “Rubber Soul” by the Beatles. My brother was an exceptional guitarist who had already played with the likes of Joe Walsh and thought it would be cool to have a little jamming buddy…he’s 13 yrs. my elder. I loved the drums from second 1 and was special guesting in clubs by the age of 11 (playing out professionally by 15) Before I go to far into the music thing…sports!

My father and brother were huge football, boxing guys..in our house OHIO STATE RULED and the Browns were big as well. I played QB and won 2 pop warner (jr. high) Championships, won the local kick, pass and punt competition 3 yrs. straight and was recruited by St. Vincent- St. Mary high school, (LeBron James) played there then transferred to an all boys, catholic high school, Arch Bishop of Hoban, another Akron Championship team, started there for a year then made my 1st in many, women related, mistakes….I transferred back to my local school as a sophomore because I missed my GF…we broke up a month later

Back at Field Local H.S. Mogodore Ohio, I was bored! My football coach was the principal and an ex-marine…he didn’t like my long hair…wouldn’t let me even try out for QB even though, in his last game, lost 40-0 to a team I had beaten, while QB at Hoban, 44-0! I relegated myself to cleaning peoples clocks at strong safety for the next 3 yrs. (Got mine cleaned a few times too!) I also started at forward for the basketball team for 3yrs. as well. I also was playing soccer for a collegiate level team called “German Family Society” started at left wing and won a National Championship there.

While at Field H.S. I also became a “National Thespian” and fell in deep like with musical theater…played lead in such classics as Pajama Game, Showboat, Pippin, Oklahoma and Arsenic and Old Lace…btw…my brother fought 3yrs. in the Golden Gloves and I was his sparring partner. I took out my frustrations on my friend, Gene Slater, who has since thanked me…he not only owns a fabulous BBQ rest. in Memphis but went on to be a National Kick Boxing Champ. I scored in the top 98% of the U.S. in my SAT’s…but wait…there’s more…

Back to music “My True Love!” I was playing from age 6, drums, 4-6 hours a day. I would sit-in in night clubs by 11. I already had a stage name “Mitch Dynamite” I lived 3 miles from Kent, home of Kent State University…HUGE party town! I was playing clubs in my first band “Cyren” by the time I was 15…clubs made famous by other North East Ohio musicians like Chrissy Hynde (Pretenders) Ben Orr (The Cars) Devo, Joe Walsh (The James Gang…later The Eagles), Todd Rundgren, Eric Carmen (The Rasberries)…the list goes on…Trent Reznor and Mushroomhead followed me.

My brother handed me a guitar at 12 and my parents had an old piano. I was writing and recording my own songs by my early teens. At 18 I was torn. I had a partial scolarship to K.S.U. for musical theatre, I was pretty damn good in sports but I loved Rock-N-Roll. (actually, everything from Zep, Preist, Thin Lizzy, Queen, Beatles, Bowie, Disco, Funk and of course…THE BEATLES!) fyi…this is really skimming the surface…I was and have always been all over the place musically.

I asked my dad, Ozzie, (also my nickname from childhood) what I should do. He said go to college and get a degree. Please understand my dad was already a published author, into spirit writing (wrote with his eyes closed with both hands at the same time in 2 different languages and spoke 3 languages…we fought about it (phsically) and I left for Florida that night..I had an offer from a band down there. fyi…I didn’t return home once for the next 3yrs.

I played drums and sang in a very popular cover band in Fla. called “Dorian Grey.” I toured the state for 3yrs. living out of hotels and playing other people’s music (frustrating as hell but fun) I was writing a lot and really wanted to perform my songs. I got together with 2 of my friends, Al Collins and Steven Chamberlin “Sweet” and decided to move to Hollywood. I heard the Sunset Strip was kicking ass…I thought if bands like Ratt and Motley Crue could do it so could I. We had no $$ so I sold my drums and we started driving…we broke down in every state.

We arrived in Hollywood, Ca. in the spring of ’85 with $20 bucks to our name. Al had his parents wire some cash and we crashed for a week at the Hollywood Bowl Motel…I got a telegram saying my father had had 2 strokes and was on life support so I flew home. They pulled the plug on him that night and the tough S.O.B. lived 9 more yrs. (he became my biggest fan) I wrote a song called “Heaven” while I was home and the guys loved it when I came back to L.A. and played it for them. While I was in Ohio they had found an English guitarist named Mikki Doll…we formed a band called “Plain Jane” and started opening a lot for a band called Guns & Roses. Meanwhile there was this, pain in the ass, competition band called Warrant who was opening all over town for a band called Poison. We did this for the next year and in ’86 G-N-R and Poison got signed…we couldn’t get arrested!

Steven and I agreed we were starving and decided to move back to Fla. That night a note was left on our apartment door saying “We’re the guys from Warrant. Our singer and drummer just quit. If you can write songs come down to DB sound rehearsal and lets see what happens.” Steve and I went down and I played them Down Boys, Heaven and DRFSR. They said, “You’re in!” and the rest is history…almost.

I told you I sold my drums…when we got to L.A. I was told since I was the only blonde and could sing…be the LEAD SINGER! I did just that.

Warrant quickly became the biggest draw on the “strip” but we still couldn’t get a sniff from a record label. We met a manager, Jamie S. who had done some work with Prince. She introduced us and he gave us $7,000 to do demo’s because he was looking for a rock band to sign to “Paisley Park.” We cut the demo’s and shot a video the night we broke Van Halen’s attendance record at a club called Gazzari’s. He saw the video and said.” the singer can’t dance but go ahead and use the demo’s to try somewhere else”…we did…no luck.

A&M records heard the demos and put one of the songs in “Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure.” The song wound up on the cutting room floor and so did A&M’s interest. Steven and I were ready to move home again but little to our knowledge a fellow by the name of Tom Hullet was on a plane back from N.Y. Tom was a manager ( Beach Boys, Moody Blues, 3 Dog Night etc.) He was talking to his friend Doc McGee (Bon Jovi, Motley Crue) By the end of the flt. Tom had been convinced to grab up a “Hair Metal Band” so he did…us. We were signed to CBS/Columbia a month later.

Our 1st record (DRFSR) came out on my birthday of ’89. “Down Boys” went to #17 and the video was a on MTV…”Heaven” went #1 that summer and so did the video. I was shocked!!!! We went on tour for the next 16 months opening for Motley Crue. We had a couple more hits “Sometimes She Cries” and ” Big Talk”. While on tour with Motley I wrote most of the next record (the rest when we got home) I intended to call it “Uncle Tom’s Cabin”. We recorded summer of ’90 and when we were done the President of Columbia Records said”Jani, you know I’m a big Aerosmith fan…can you give me one more track? Something kitchy and sexy like “Love in an Elevator?” I wrote “Cherry Pie” that night and sent it off to N.Y. the next day. I’ve been the “Cherry Pie Guy” ever since. That song went #7 and the video was infamous worldwide. “I Saw Red” went #5 “Blind Faith” went #27 and “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” went top 40. We toured and toured some more.

In the mean time, I married the girl from the “Cherry Pie” video, Bobbie Brown, and we had a daughter, Taylar. She’s 19 now and going to college on a journalism scholarship. I’m very proud of her! During this time I heard a song called “Smells Like Teen Spirit”. I felt impending doom! I wanted to hate it but I couldn’t…it was that good. I locked myself in my home studio, in Sherman Oaks, Ca., for 4 weeks. I wrote the entire record “Dog Eat Dog” in that time. We rushed into the studio and recorded it and it was released to a luke warm response…grunge had arrived. It went gold but things were tough. Our manager died, my dad died, I got divorced, money was tight, I opened a night club in Fla. (Jani Lane’s Sunset Strip) and the band kept playing and recording. I just kept writing songs…thats always been my friend and therapist (when I finish this bio I’m headed down to my studio to begin work on about 8 new songs).

We released “Ultraphobic” in ’95 and “Belly To Belly” in ’96. I released a solo record “Back Down To One” in “03. I have a 20 song project called “Jabberwocky” that will see the light of day…soon. I got re-married and had another daughter, Madison (huge Justin Beiber fan) who I’m extremely proud of as well. I got divorced again and left Warrant in ’02 due to business differences. I’ve done 3 movies “High Strung”, “Caged Fear” and “Bodyguard” and I recently remarried to the love of my life, Kimberly. I’ve done television, movies, blah, blah, blah. I’m starting to bore myself so, needless to say…You can hear my music worldwide on a host of different formats, movies, television, satelite, radio, the internet etc. Thank you Armed Forces…I have a U.S.O. Commendation and my brother was 6 yrs. Air force.

Thanks for listening and know that everyday above ground is a gift and I’m truly grateful for each and every one of you!!! SEE YOU ON TOUR THIS YEAR!

PS..remember, “If you only talk and don’t listen, you only learn what you already know.” My mother died on Thanksgiving Day 2004. I will miss her forever. She was my guiding light. I have 3 sisters Marcine, Michelle and Victoria.

And YES, I LOVE THE SONG “CHERRY PIE!!!” ….SWING IT!!
Jani Lane, July 2011
