Linkin Park / Chester Bennington - Hybrid Theory 17 Years Later

chester
Chester Bennington unfortunately passed away on 7/20/17. His death has had a very strange effect on me, personally. I’m not a fan, nor have I really been a fan of Linkin Park’s music. Hell, I can honestly tell you, had you asked me prior to 4 days ago, I’d really only be able to tell you that Linkin Park is a band that came out during the age of nu-metal and they did some stuff with Jay-Z at some point. Needless to say, I wasn’t all too familiar. On the day he passed, I opened Facebook to a barrage of posts from heartbroken fans sharing their stories about how Chester and his music had touched...

JIBE - Epic Tales of Human Nature

JIBE
This is tough one for me. When I first started Renegade Radio, everything was new and everyone was “the next big thing”. We spent a few years kinda watching the scene and learning all we could about the best local talent and who the ones “on the verge” were.  11 years ago that was JIBE . If you were in a band the last thing you wanted at this time was to have to play a local show the same night they did cause almost everyone went to JIBE. Hell you probably wanted to go see them too. But again, that was 11 years ago. I’ve changed since then. Certainly the band has or they’d not be bac...

Doyle II - As We Die

doyle-aswedie
For the handful of you out there who may be unfamiliar, Doyle got his start as the guitarist for the Misfits almost 40 years ago. Where many punk artists from that era are finding comfort in new sounds (some for better, some for worse), Doyle has been charging on with a surprising amount of consistency since day one, be it on later Misfits releases, other projects with Danzig post-Misfits, or solo. If it’s got Doyle’s name attached to it, it’s almost guaranteed to evoke something rather nasty in your mind. On “Doyle II: As We Die,” Doyle teams up with Alex Story, the insanely talented frontman...

Richie Kotzen - Salting Earth Review

Richie Kotzen - Salting Earth Review
As strange as it may be, the best way I can explain Richie Kotzen is that he carries a funk rock style of soulful 70s Motown Jazz Rock fusion that can only be described as a brand new yesterday. A déjà vu of new experiences. From his solo work of an amazing now 21 solo albums to joining forces with Mike Portnoy and Billy Sheehan for The Winery Dogs to this 21 st solo effort that redefines the expectations of music for everyone else. It just does. The most amazing things he does in this release, Salting Earth , and his style in general is you remember so many things of your own past associated ...

An Evening with Kenny Youngar

An Evening with Kenny Youngar

“Paris, France.” There’s a lot of questions Kenny Youngar could have answered and those words never would have come to mind. But as usual in interviews, you start a little basic and grow out from there. Leave it to Kenny to start anything “basic” when asked the simple question of “Where did ‘Kenny the Drummer’ begin”? Laughing, Kenny backed up a bit and took a sip of beer and clarified himself. “I actually got my first drum set in middle school while living in Paris, France” Youngar decided to explain. “I rarely played even then because my neighbor played and he was good and I was embarrassed ...

Craving Strange - "Careful Of The Landmines" Review

Craving Strange - "Careful Of The Landmines" Review
Four years ago, in a bar somewhere out in eastern Long Island, I happened upon a tattooed singer from Indiana, whose band had just finished tearing the place up. We spoke for a few minutes, and then went our separate ways. Less than a year later, They held a record release party on Feb 28 th , 2014 at Revolution in Amityville, New York,  that we simulcasted here on Renegade Radio, for the world to hear – changing the course of our New York (And East Coast) endeavors forever. The title of that record was “A Life Exceptional” and the Singer's name is Jimmy G, of the band Craving Strange . 3...
