KickActs interviews KT Paige from “Romantic Rebel”!, pub-2427795083793513, DIRECT, f08c47fec0942fa0

Romantic Rebel

Welcome to Kick Acts. Tell us a little about yourself and where you can be found online.
-KT: “My name is KT Paige. I sing for Romantic Rebel and I’m the Disney Princess of Horror. We’re most active on Facebook ( so make sure you check out our page to see when we’ll be tearing up a venue near you!”
Who are your musical heroes and influences? Why?

-KT: “I’m a huge fan of Stevie Nicks. I love her singing and her style in general. I also love Alice Cooper and Danny Worsnop for their music and stage presence.”
Do you have any advice for someone just getting started in the music business?
-KT: “Definitely network as much as possible and make as many friends in the business as you can. Also, you can only play the same circuit for so long. If you want people to hear your music, you have to tour outside of your city, state and region.”

What piece of advice did you ignore that you wish you hadn’t?
-KT: “Nothing comes to mind. We usually take all advice we receive into consideration.”

Do you have a greatest gig story or worst gig horror story you’d like to share?
-KT: “Playing Louder Than Life Fest was one of the coolest gigs we’ve played to date. Running into some of my band friends, as well as some of the musicians I look up to backstage, was pretty cool!”

Do you have any other hobbies other than playing music? Collect stamps? Collect hats from off the side of the road? Draw pictures of peckers or boobs? Make sock puppets? Sit in the dark and eat Cheetos?
-KT: “I paint a lot of zombies and puppies.”

What do you think about the current music scene or lack of? Care to address that?
-KT: “It seems that a lot of bands nowadays feel that they don’t need to actually play their instruments or sing when they play shows. Sometimes the band’s album was produced to make the band sound better than they really are and when the time comes to perform it live, they can’t live up to the perfected sounds on the recording. So as a result, they use a multitude of tracks to give the illusion that they can actually play their parts just like the album. I’m not talking about background synth or strings that can give a live song body. It’s when singers are moving their mouths to melodies that are out of their range and guitarists are moving their hands up and down the guitar neck to a complicated riff. The way I look at it, if you can’t play it live, don’t put it on the album.”<——–HELL YEA I AGREE! (Editor)

Do you think reality shows like American Idol, X factor and The Voice have helped or hurt the music industry as a whole?
-KT: “I don’t think it really affects it. Excluding: Adam Lambert, Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, etc., most of the contestants on the show rarely make a dent in the industry after the show ends.”

What is your opinion of unauthorized music downloads?
-KT: “It’s a problem that is always going to occur. So the only thing you can do is think about the fact that your music is being spread around, even if it’s not in the most ideal manner.”

Tell us something about each of your band members that we wouldn’t expect to hear.
-KT: “Alex is a huge fan of all things Star Wars, Marvel and DC. Zach is completely obsessed with candy. Ty claims he loves Stars Wars, but he still hasn’t seen The Force Awakens.”

Do you know what a vinyl album is and have your ever purchased one? If so, what was it?
-KT: “If I didn’t know what a vinyl album was, I don’t deserve to be in band. I don’t own a record player, but I’ve bought ‘Never Mind The Bollocks’ as a gift for someone who does.”

Which would you rather hear in concert? Lip syncing or real vocals?
-KT: “I think you know my opinion of this by now.”

Who, or what, is the next big thing?-KT: “Only the Music Gods know the answer to that…”

One artist you can’t get enough of and can’t live without is…
-KT: “Right now, it’s Fleetwood Mac, but that will probably change next month.”

Favorite movie of all time and why.
-KT: “Hardest. Question. Ever. I have an answer for every genre.”

Our last question is called “Shout It Out Loud”. It’s where you get to talk about whatever you want to talk about. So go ahead KT PAIGE and “SHOUT IT OUT LOUD”!

-KT: “We’ll be heading out on tour this Summer, so come to a show and party with us!”

W.A.S.P. Lyric Video For New Song ‘Scream’, pub-2427795083793513, DIRECT, f08c47fec0942fa0

  I would like to say “hard to believe” but I have to say, isn’t it awesome that Blackie Lawless is still kicking out great music after all this time. I first got turned on to W.AS.P. back in the day when they released songs like “Hellion”, “I wanna Be Somebody”, “Sleeping in the Fire” and “F**k like a Beast”. The metal guitars and Blackie’s vocals cut thru like a knife or as in W.A.S.P.’s logo, a saw blade! It was great music for the angry youth of the day.W.A.S.P. continues to release great music and tours to this day. However Blackie’s heart isn’t so black anymore. His music is still hard hitting and his lyrics are still powerful. W.A.S.P.’s new album is called Golgotha. Make sense? Check out this lyric video and did you get the message.

Alice Cooper wants to kill Motley Crue!, pub-2427795083793513, DIRECT, f08c47fec0942fa0

But not in real life! The last show of the tour Alice Cooper has suggested that he will have 3 more guillotines made to cut of the heads of Motley Crue and stick them on posts…That would be an awesome show and if it happens, someone please video tape it!

Alice Cooper Wants to ‘Kill’ Mötley Crüe

In January 2014, when Alice Cooper agreed to open for Mötley Crüe on the latter’s farewell tour, he didn’t exactly know what he was getting himself into. Now, a year later, Cooper wants to kill every member of the Crüe.

Not literally, of course. For more than 40 years, Cooper has staged a theatrical rock ‘n’ roll horror show that has climaxed with his own simulated death. For Mötley Crüe’s final U.S. performance on December 31, 2015, in Los Angeles, Cooper would happily pass on his murderous tradition to his tour mates.

“That would be awesome!” enthuses Crüe drummer Tommy Lee during an interview with Yahoo Music at the Langham Place Hotel in Midtown Manhattan. “I asked him earlier, ‘Can you make three more of those guillotines. Then you could chop off all our heads at the same time!’”

Cooper says it would be easy to create a few more death machines by the end of the year, and feels that his Frankenstein monster would be the perfect beast to finish the job. “It would be great for him to come out and collect their heads and put them on posts,” he says from a hotel suite black leather chair positioned in a conference room next to Lee and Crüe guitarist Mick Mars.

Here's the entire article from YAHOO

Happy Birthday Alice Cooper!, pub-2427795083793513, DIRECT, f08c47fec0942fa0

Alice Cooper - From The Inside - FrontIt’s Alice Cooper‘s birthday today. The original King of Shock Rock.This first song is from his 1978 album “From the Inside”. As far as I am concerned it was his best body of work. A masterpiece. Not one bad or lame song on it. I remember listening to this love song “How you gonna see me now” and the whole album over and over again in my room. I would stare at the album gate fold (which folded out like doors). Inside the album was a photograph of a sanitarium and all the characters that are on the album in the songs are presented there. Nurse Rosetta, JackKnife Johnny and all the rest! Also, if you looked closely into Alice’s eyes on the cover you can see the people inside his head!

Kids these days, I guess maybe they can relate but how so I do not know. When I was growing up it was pre internet. Meaning all I had to go by was the album art, the album and my imagination. Music wasn’t as disposable as it is now. I didn’t have unlimited music at my finger tips. I got an album or a tape of the month (wow remember those??!!) and that’s all I had but in reality, all I needed. My friends and my memories are locked up in these albums. They are always there waiting on me to show up and play. They never get old.

The album means so much to me to that you can see the really cool lunchbox my friend from childhood got me for Christmas this year after the videos!

Enjoy some of the songs from the album below!

Damnit Maurie of KISS 92.5 interveiws Rob Zombie, pub-2427795083793513, DIRECT, f08c47fec0942fa0

Here is a video of an interview with Rob Zombie from Damnit Maurie of “The Roz & Mocha Show” on Toronto, Ontario, Canada’s KISS 92.5 radio station…MIght be a lesson in here on what not to do during an interview. The interview”er keeps stepping in during Rob’s conversation. Rob is pretty cool about it. Also the helmet cam is a little “shaky”.

I also got to add here why in the hell does every (almost every) gay person got to make the “I am gay” announcement. This guy made it twice in the 13 minute interview and told Rob Zombie he was “afraid of boobs” twice….jeesh….I don’t make the announcement I’m not gay and I like boobs every chance i get….once again why would you define yourself by what you put in your mouth?

But back to the interview. Enjoy, its pretty cool anyway and you get to Sheri Zombie get up and walk out and the gay guy does look at her ass….
