James Young of Styx talks Midwest Rock & Roll Express with REO Speedwagon and Ted Nugent, Nugent flips out in CBS interview (video)

James Young of Styx talks Midwest Rock & Roll Express with REO Speedwagon and Ted Nugent, Nugent flips out in CBS interview (video)

The Midwest Rock & Roll Express tour with Styx, REO Speedwagon and Ted Nugent got rolling Tuesday night (May 1) in Hidalgo, Texas. The express will roll through a July 8 stop in Bangor, Maine, with about two dozen shows total.

Nugent will be rocking at almost all the gigs, but thanks in part to his infamous habit of speaking his mind when it comes to his staunch conservative political views, U.S. Army officials canceled his scheduled set on June 23rd at Fort Knox in Kentucky recently. Styx and REO now will be joined by Blue Oyster Cult at that gig.

As you probably know, Nuge got everybody talking after making a speech at a National Rifle Association convention when he made comments that some considered threatening toward President Obama and his administration.

Styx guitarist James "JY" Young says that while concertgoers know what to expect for the most part from his band and REO, who have toured together numerous times over the years, the Nuge's edge and unpredictability will bring some extra excitement to the outing.

"There's not a whole lot of outrageous activity between [Styx and REO] and that's why we need Ted!" Young told ABC News Radio. "We need Ted, and he's joining the party. Watch out. In rock 'n' roll you always want a certain amount of uncertainty and [a] 'what kind of crazy thing is gonna go on tonight' kind of a thing as part of the deal, and Ted provide that in spades."

Young also said that his group's set not only will feature all their best, but even some more obscure tunes that the band played in 2010 that featured performances of their entire 'Pieces of Eight' and 'The Grand Illusion' albums.

"People still want to hear 'Renegade'…'Blue Collar Man'…'Come Sail Away,' 'Too Much Time on My Hands' and what have you," he said. "[So] those will be there but there's [also] gonna be some deep tracks perhaps people have never heard us play before."

Young also revealed that Styx is considering getting back into the studio after several years of recording inactivity, but possibly not releasing a full album. "Instead of throwing 10, 12, 15 tracks up against the wall and seeing the whole thing collectively fall down," says Young, "my notion is we just do a track at a time and finish it and maybe create a little visual presentation for it so it can live in all different mediums and live globally [and] digitally."

The next stop on the Midwest Rock & Roll Express trek is tonight  in Tuscon, AZ at the Anselmo Valencia Ampitheatre. Ted Nugent won't be appearing on tonight's date as well, unrelated to any of his comments.

The Motor City Madman blew up during what was initially a calm interview focusing on his recent statements. On 'CBS This Morning', reporter Jeff Glor asked if Nugent understood why people didn’t consider him a moderate. Ted then proceeded to get fired up, offering to perform sexual acts on both the male reporter and a nearby female producer if they could find someone who cares more about people and the planet than he does.

"I’m an extremely loving and passionate man, and people who investigate me honestly, without the baggage of political correctness, ascertain the conclusion that I’m a damned nice guy...and if you can find a screening process more powerful than that, I’ll suck your dick," he then turned to an off-camera female producer adding, "Or I’ll fuck you, how’s that sound?"

In the full version of the story, Glor does say that Nugent did promptly and fully apologize to both he and the producer after the interview. It was also revealed that the guitar legend made a trip to the emergency room to deal with a painful case of kidney stones a shortly after the interview. Maybe that's why he was so irritable.

The original Gamma lineup (Davey Pattison, vocals; Glenn Letsch, bass; Denny Carmassi, drums) will also be on hand, with special guest Marc Bonilla on lead guitar.

There will also be an All-Star band, comprised of many of the great musicians that Ronnie played with over the years. Some of the confirmed artists include: Neal Schon from Journey, Steve Smith formerly from Journey, members of Tesla, Eric Martin from Mr. Big, Rickie Philips from Styx, Eric Singer and Tommy Thayer of KISS and Jimmy DeGrasso from Y & T and Alice Cooper.

The Montrose tribute will be held at the Regency Ballroom in San Francisco this Friday, April 27. Ronnie Montrose passed away March 3, committing suicide after a lifelong battle with depression.

A portion of the proceeds from the concert will benefit the Ronnie Montrose Fund for San Francisco Bay Area Musicians through SweetRelief.org.

Trixter release new video ‘Tattoos & Misery’

Trixter release new video ‘Tattoos & Misery’

Reunited rockers Trixter have released a new music video for the single "Tattoos & Misery", from the band's album 'New Audio Machine', out now on Frontiers Records.

Featuring the band's original line-up, 'New Audio Machine' was produced and engineered by Chuck Alzakian (Elton John, Christina Aguilera, Tesla) and includes songwriting contributions by Skid Row's Snake Sabo and Rachel Bolan and former Styx member Glen Burtnik. Trixter frontman Pete Loran commented, "After all these years playing and recording with this band, I would say I am most proud of this record!" Lead guitarist Steve Brown added, "New Audio Machine is everything Trixter was and everything we are now. I can't wait for the world to hear it!"

Northern New Jersey's Trixter's self-titled debut album (1990) went Gold (500K sold), reaching #28 on The Billboard 200 in 1990), and spawned three hit singles: 'Surrender', 'One In A Million', and 'Give It To Me Good.' The videos for all three tunes were in heavy rotation on MTV (especially “Give It To Me Good”, which was #1 on the channel for several weeks). Voted "Best New Band" by Hit Parader Magazine and "Best Concert" by Metal Edge Magazine, Trixter has toured extensively in the United States, Canada and Japan. They have performed in arenas and amphitheaters with crowds of up to 35,000 and have appeared live on numerous television and radio programs such as Entertainment Tonight, Pay-Per-View, VH-1, MTV, Z-Rock and MetalShop. Trixter has shared the stage with such rock heavyweights as KISS, Boston, The Scorpions, Poison, Vince Neil, Cinderella, Warrant, Slaughter, Winger, Skid Row, Great White, Firehouse, Faster Pussycat, Stryper, Dokken and more. The band recently nabbed the #29 spot on VH-1's "Top 40 Hair Bands of All Time" countdown.

Trixter is Pete Loran (lead vocals/rhythm guitar), Steve Brown (lead guitar/harmonica/backing vocals), P.J. Farley (bass/backing vocals) and Gus Scott (drums/percussion/backing vocals).  More information on the band can be found at www.frontiers.it and www.trixterrocks.com.

P.J. Farley talks past, present and future for Trixter

P.J. Farley talks past, present and future for Trixter

Dave Felix of RockEyez recently conducted an interview with bassist P.J. Farley of reunited good-time rockers Trixter. Farley talks the past, present and future of Trixter, including past and upcoming tours, the new album and (with all respect) being the band slut back in the day.

"Tattoos & Misery", the new single from Trixter, is now available on iTunes. Written by Steve Brown, P.J. Farley, Mark "Gus" Scott and Xandy Barry (The Rolling Stones, Puddle Of Mudd, Backstreet Boys, Miley Cyrus), mixed by Corey Pensa and one of the tracks on Trixter's forthcoming album, 'New Audio Machine', due April 24 in North America via Frontiers Records. The album was produced by Steve Brown with extra production and engineering by Chuck Alkazian (Elton John, Christina Aguilera, Tesla) and includes songwriting contributions by Skid Row's Snake Sabo and Rachel Bolan and Glen Burtnik of Styx. The album features all original members.

Although formed in 1983 in Paramus, NJ, Trixter's big break didn't come until 1989, when the band decamped to Hollywood (the unofficial headquarters of hair metal) to record for MCA Records. The following year saw Trixter touring the country with Stryper and Don Dokken in support of their self-titled debut, which received a significant boost from MTV. Vocalist Peter Loran, guitarist Steve Brown, bassist P.J. Farley, and drummer Mark "Gus" Scott became frequent faces on the music network, where the videos for "Give It to Me Good," "One in a Million," and "Surrender" all fell into regular rotation. Trixter went gold in early 1991, having sold over 500,000 copies in the U.S., and the bandmates increased their popularity by joining the "Blood, Sweat, and Beers Tour" (which also featured Warrant and Firehouse) and contributing to the soundtrack for If Looks Could Kill. The band's heyday proved to be short-lived, however. The follow-up album Hear! failed to maintain Trixter's popularity, and an EP of cover songs — 1994's Undercovers — couldn't compete with the newfound popularity of grunge music. Following Scott's departure, the band broke up in 1995. Trixter announced the reunion of its original lineup in 2007 and has since played a number of shows, including the Rocklahoma festival in 2008.

Trixter will start touring in May, with more dates and venues currently being booked for the Warrant/Firehouse/Trixter summer tour.
May 10 - Bergen Perfromning Arts Center - Englewood, NJ (w/Dokken & Warrant)
Jun. 9 - Ribfest Fargodome - Fargo, ND (w/Warrant & Firehouse)
