MAY 2013 - Thank you to all the bands that participated in the contest! It looks like the band that will be submitted to Motley Crue's management (to be one of three possible openers) by WOUR is....... Glass Skeleton Death March! Each and every one of you that voted - the bands appreciate it, and it's great to see the interaction with local bands! Special shout out to Red Hush, Wicked, Alcohol in the Family, Brass Knuckle, Motel Hotel & Coston - they all did a great job too!

APRIL 2022

One of my favorite bands in the early 90's was 'SPREAD EAGLE' and the song 'BROKEN CITY'!

The band Spread Eagle are looking for 'Understudy Replacement Guitarist' for upcoming shows 7/29, 7/30 and 7/31 in Philly, NYC, NJ. Due to the DC STRUT REUNION and GUITAR DAY, there is no way

I can put the time in to play that kind of lead guitar work. So here is a small clip recorded at

'CRASH, BANG WALLOP Studios'! for the people that asked to play something! ENJOY!
