motor sister rideMOTOR SISTER was originally assembled to jam for Scott Ian’s fiftieth birthday party. Thanks to Scott’s wife Pearl Aday, who has been working on her solo career with Mother Superior front man Jim Wilson for years, all it took was a quick phone call and the stage was literally set for Scott’s dream gig.

Enthralled at the idea of making a record of his favorite Mother Superior songs, Ian emailed producer Jay Ruston (Anthrax, Steel Panther) and asked if he thought it was possible to recapture the same spontaneous energy MOTOR SISTER generated at their makeshift gig, and if an album could be recorded quickly.

Ride was released to great acclaim earlier this year on Metal Blade Records and debuted on the Billboard charts after its first week of release. The album cracked the top 10 with the #9 position on the Billboard New Artist (Heatseekers) chart.

“All you really need to know about Ride is that it kicks a massive amount of ass” Revolver Magazine
“The retro rock and roll band that you didn’t even know you were missing in your life until right now!” MetalInjection.net
“This is kick ass classic sounding hard rock! Blazing guitars, great vocals and songs! Everything I love most about hard rock music in one killer album.” Eddie Trunk

#NEWS Here’s what we’ve got on ‘The Classic Rock Show’ Thursday 7pm BST 2pm EDT / 11am PDT

Here’s what we’ve got planned for ‘The Classic Rock Show’ on Thursday, 9th July from 7pm BST / 2pm EDT / 11am PDT:

The month of July seemed to be an exceptionally good time for album releases in years gone by, and we’re gonna play you some of the very best. Classic cuts from Alice Cooper, Dio, David Lee Roth, Slayer, Megadeth, Pat Benatar, Helix, Quiet Riot, Faster Pussycat, Ratt, Great White, Ace Frehley, Y&T and Heart will no doubt help to bring back some memories of you running down to the local record store to pick up a copy.

“What about our requests?”, I hear you say. Of course, this show wouldn’t be the same without your contributions, so we’ll also be hearing from Blackberry Smoke, Cozy Powell, Iron Maiden, Stone Sour, Massive, Nickelback, the new one from Shinedown, Dire Straits, Faith No More, Gary Moore, Def Leppard and Loverboy.

New music will primarily come from the ‘Blues’ end of the music spectrum. The amazing Will Johns (appearing at The Criterion Theatre, Coventry on July 11th and The Wheatsheaf, Oxford on July 13th) has a new single out ‘Last Page’, and we’ll be playing that for you. Plus we’ll play something from the new album by Jared James Nichols, who’s tour support for Glenn Hughes in September, and also hear a track from the new King King album ‘Searching For The Light’. They’ll be back out on tour in October.

As you see, we’ve quite a mix for you…well, we wouldn’t have it any other way!

Join in the chat and comment on our Facebook Group and on Twitter @classicrockshow during the ‘live’ broadcast from 7pm until 10pm BST. Listen links can be found on the Home page.

Cheers!
