NEWS: 1983 revisited with ‘Back To The 80s’ Part 4

This week’s show takes you on another trip down memory lane, back to the year 1983, with Part 4 of a series of shows celebrating Rock Music through the 80s, year-by-year. “Oh yeah….looking through those rose-tinted spectacles again, are we?”, but those of us fortunate enough to have lived through the early 80s can be forgiven for thinking it was an era where rock music, not for the first time, took on an energy all of its own, providing some notable highlights and in some case, breaking new ground.

Just look at a few of the bands we’ve lined up for you to rock out to in the first hour of the show! Motley Crue, Dio, Y&T, Quiet Riot, Yes, Genesis, Alcatrazz, Thin Lizzy and Gary Moore.

TCRS

And if that’s not enough, we’ll be hearing from the likes of Queensrÿche, Metallica, Kiss, Molly Hatchet, Hanoi Rocks, Magnum, Bryan Adams, AC/DC, Rainbow, Journey, Saxon, Iron Maiden, Hawkwind, Marillion, Status Quo, Accept, Dokken, Ozzy Osbourne, Slade, Def Leppard and ZZ Top.

Three hours of great music, anecdotes and news headlines from the year 1983 – 7pm Thursday, 12th February.

Listen links are on our homepage www.theclassicrockshow.co.uk

Cheers!

NEWS: Four heavy-hitters of American Hard Rock are Rated X

RATED X is an exciting and fresh new band built around the talents of four heavy-hitters of American Hard Rock. Comprising of vocalist Joe Lynn Turner (Rainbow, Deep Purple, Yngwie Malmsteen), guitarist Karl Cochran (Ace Frehley), fretless-bass monster Tony Franklin (The Firm, Blue Murder, Whitesnake, Kenny Wayne Shepherd) and iconic drummer Carmine Appice (Vanilla Fudge, Rod Stewart, Ozzy Osbourne, Blue Murder), RATED-X came about when Frontiers’ President Serafino Perugino suggested to Turner that it was time to put together a band that could highlight his abilities in a classic Hard Rock musical environment.

Rated X

Appice was the first one who was called in to be part of it, given the long history of friendship and musical camaraderie with Turner. After a quick search, Tony Franklin soon agreed to be part of the band – thus reuniting the rhythm section that was featured in the legendary “Blue Murder” debut album. It was finally necessary to find the right guitarist and who could have been better than long time Joe Lynn Turner collaborator, Karl Cochran: a flamboyant guitar player that can masterfully handle the Arena Rock style, with a Classic Hard Rock sensibility second to none.

Under the executive direction of Perugino and the hard work of Frontiers in-house producer Alessandro Del Vecchio (Hardline, Livin’ Out Loud, Voodoo Circle) songwriting demos were laid down during the last months of 2013.

With ties to some of heavy rock’s most seminal bands – Rainbow, Deep Purple, Blue Murder and Vanilla Fudge – RATED X is a modern day supergroup who can literally light up a fire in the music fans with its class and gusto, with a nod to the roots of the classic British Hard Rock sound!

RATED X are…
Joe Lynn Turner: vocals
Carmine Appice: drums
Tony Franklin: bass
Karl Cochran: guitars

Release date: EU – November 7th, NA – November 10th
