Review: CAROLE KING & JAMES TAYLOR - Brisbane Entertainment Centre, Wednesday 31st March 2010

Like millions of others around the world, I had a copy of Carole King’s landmark Tapestry album amongst my record collection. And, like millions of others around the world, I played it over and over again, memorising each and every word to each and every song. And, again, like millions of others around the world, I grew up listening to such haunting James Taylor classics as ‘Fire and Rain’. Two legendary superstars whose music formed an integral part of my life’s soundtrack and whom I never…

Interview: MARTHA DAVIS - The Motels

During the 80’s, that unmistakable sound of Martha Davis’s voice could be heard on the airwaves, bringing us such classic Motels’ hits as ‘Total Control’ and ‘Only The Lonely’. Now, fast forward a couple of decades later and it’s a very different Martha Davis we are hearing...

Martha opened up…

Review & Photos: AC/DC at ANZ Stadium, 18 February 2010

Australia had waited 9 years for their rock’n’roll sons to return home and finally, their much anticipated stadium spectacular had arrived on our doorstep.



Armed with our Showbiz passes, we boarded the train, destination ANZ Stadium. You just know it’s going to be a huge night…

Review: KEITH URBAN - Escape Together Tour - WIN Wollongong 14.12.09



I must confess, apart from his celebrity status and the fact that he is married to Nicole Kidman, I didn’t really know much about Keith Urban. I hadn’t taken the opportunity to listen to his music, despite my husband owning one of his CDs.



With the news of his impending Australian tour, I decided that as part of his Christmas gift, I would take my husband to a show. We had no idea what to expect.



The setting was the… Continue

Review: ROSS WILSON: 5 Decades of Cool - State Theatre, Sydney 28.11.09

It was a rather hot spring night when Sydney’s iconic State Theatre played host to another Aussie icon. Celebrated rock legend, Ross Wilson, took to the stage to entertain the audience with his aptly named ‘5 Decades of Cool’ concert. Supported by various musicians who have played alongside him throughout those five decades, the singer performed hit after hit from his vast catalogue of music, including tunes from his early bands, The Pink Finks and The Party Machine as well as, naturally, some… Continue

Review: Suzi Quatro @ Twin Towns Services Club - 18th September 2009

It was 1974 when Suzi Quatro first visited our shores but, 30 years later, she’s still packing out houses around the country and bringing the crowds to their feet at her rockin live shows.



I caught the first of 2 sell-out shows by the Queen of Rock at Twin Towns Services Club on Friday night. Having been to a few of Suzi’s Australian concerts in the 70’s, when she was riding high on the charts here with ‘Devil Gate Drive’, ’48 Crash’ and ‘Can The Can’, I wondered what to expect from… Continue

Phil Emmanuel @ Mansfield Tavern, 21.8.09

PHIL EMMANUEL, KEV WINDROSS, 1989 & HIGH NOON @ THE MANSFIELD TAVERN, BRISBANE - FRIDAY, 21ST AUGUST 2009





It’s a shame there weren’t more fans at this gig on Friday night to enjoy the welcome return of the brilliant guitarist to Brisbane’s live gig circuit. Not only did they miss out on the amazing musicianship of a man widely recognised as Australia’s Greatest Electric Guitar Player, but also the wide range of musical talent… Continue

Review: Alice Cooper, WIN Wollongong 18.8.09





Having never been to an Alice Cooper show, it was with some anticipation that we attended the first concert of the Australian leg of his new 'Theatre of Death' tour.



Whilst attendance numbers were down, the diehard fans flocked to the front waiting for the show to commence. It was mainly an older crowd with a smattering of youngsters, some dressed in character and looking very much like their idol.



The night started… Continue

The Angels @ Twin Towns Services Club 7.8.09

THE ANGELS @ TWIN TOWNS SERVICES CLUB, COOLANGATTA QLD



FRIDAY 7TH AUGUST 2009






Twin Towns was all fired up last Friday night when legendary Aussie rock band, The Angels, flew into town and played to a packed auditorium. In spite of a cold that caused Doc to struggle with his voice during the night, the band gave a brilliant performance. In fact, it seemed that most of the appreciative crowd never even noticed the fact that Doc was close to losing his voice on… Continue

Review: One of the Boys - Mick Cocks Benefit Concert



The night was titled “One of the Boys” and the music industry boys and girls certainly lived up to the hype of looking after their own. They were all there to support Mick Cocks of Rose Tattoo who is suffering from liver cancer.



The night, hosted by Glenn A Baker, started early by music industry standards but the Enmore Theatre was already packed with a crowd ready to rock the night away and part with their cash for items bought,… Continue

Black Label (aka Lawless Breed) @ Revesby Workers Club 18.7.09



Sydney’s Revesby Workers Club rocked hard – and loud! – with The Angels, supported by local rockers, Black Label, who definitely set the pace for the evening. With musical influences such as AC/DC, Rose Tattoo, ZZ Top and even The Angels themselves, their hard-edged brand of blues-rock was a perfect warm-up for the legendary Aussie band.



Black Label is a hard-hitting five piece rock and roll band hailing from Sydney’s south western… Continue

Noiseworks @ The Mansfield Tavern 6.6.09

NOISEWORKS @ THE MANSFIELD TAVERN, BRISBANE - SATURDAY 6TH JUNE 2009





On Saturday night, Brisbane’s Mansfield Tavern played host to one of our nation’s premier rock bands, Noiseworks. A favourite on the Australian pub rock scene in the 80’s, Noiseworks’ following has remained strong over the years, even after the band split in 1992. When Noiseworks finally reunited in 2007, the news was met with overwhelming enthusiasm from fans around the country and I was one of them so… Continue

Baby Animals @ Mansfield Tavern 24.4.09

BABY ANIMALS @ THE MANSFIELD TAVERN, BRISBANE - 24TH APRIL, 2009







I must admit that, while I've always loved the Baby Animals' music, I had never actually had the pleasure of seeing them perform. That is, until Friday night when the band brought their hard-hitting brand of Aussie rock and roll to Brisbane's Mansfield Tavern.



I was keen to see for myself if they still had the same energy that made them such a… Continue

Friday night’s inclement weather in Brisbane might have kept some fans away from The Sharks Leagues Club at Victoria Point but those dedicated enough to brave the elements were well rewarded with an incredible evening of entertainment by rock superstar and Noiseworks front man, Jon Stevens.



Long recognised as having one of… Continue
