dear-superstar-papaThis week it’s all about the sleazy life as Buckcherry roll into town hot on the heels of their acclaimed Download show. And it just so happens they’re brining rushonrock faves Dear Superstar (singer Micky pictured) along for the ride after the two bands became the best of friends on the summer festival circuit and beyond. With Heaven’s Basement showing up for a quick set too it’s worth getting down to Newcastle’s o2 Academy early doors tomorrow night – miss this and you’ll miss out.

Maintaining the sleazetastic theme we catch up with Steadlur‘s Daniel to bring you yet another exclusive interview and Cinderella feature as The Vinyl Countdown closes in on the top 20.

There’s all the latest news and views from the world of rock and metal with Rock O’ The North joined by this week’s mystery guest blogger. And we’re already looking ahead to Sunday’s round-up of the best new releases with full reviews of the latest Kerrang! compilation and hot albums by Nebula, Sondura and The Stupids. Don’t go anywhere else for your rock fix this week!
