For a great audio interview of vocalist Neal Middleton, check out The Breakdown, based out of Illinois.
And word in the blog-o-sphere is that the one-and-only Ron Jeremy was on hand at The Roxy in Los Angeles, CA, night before last (April 1) to introduce Candlebox to the stage - confirmed by guitarist Taylor Richards (by text message)! [I'm laughing my freakin' arse off -SLG] Tay said Jeremy may be the ugliest person ever, but he had two hot girls on his arm. So Jeremy at least had that goin' for him.
I'm a huge Ron Jeremy fan, so I think it's awesome they had a chance to meet. In fact, small twist of fate - I met Jeremy just a few nights before the first concert I promoted / produced for Royal Bliss. I remember hanging out with the band the night before the show just bubbling over with Ron Jeremy excitement. Over meeting him ... not ... well ... you know. So ... umm ... let's move on ....
The Western States' tour seems to be doing its job. Royal Bliss' second release We Did Nothing Wrong (from Life In-between) is #40 on Billboard's Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks after two weeks. Good news, good news indeed.
Buckcherry and Royal Bliss have announced two new shows to their East Coast tour, in addition to those already announced:
May 15 The Fillmore NY @ Irving Plaza, New York City, New York (benefit concert for Childhelp)
May 20 Broome County Arena, Binghampton, New York
More locally, Royal Bliss has shows announced in Utah week after next:
Apr 10 Track’s Brewing Co., Tooele, Utah
Apr 11 Teazers, Ogden, Utah
Apr 14 Huka Bar & Grill (acoustic set), Murray, Utah
Apr 17 Liquid Joe’s, Salt Lake City, Utah
It'll be great to have them home for a bit. More later ....
