dear-superstar-albumIt’s been a long time coming but in-your-face Brit rockers Dear Superstar are finally planning the follow-up to slow burning hit Heartless after six months of serious progress on the road. We’ve got an exclusive behind-the-scenes studio report coming up this week – plus an interview with frontman Micky.

We’re also catching up with another singer called Michael – Michael Sweet of Stryper after the Christian hair metal legends crashed the Billboard charts with their fantastic new record Murder By Pride. And after a three-week hiatus we can confirm uber columnist Self Made Man will be back on Friday! We promise.

Elsewhere we’ll be in Newcastle on Wednesday watching the progress of Dirty Rock And Roll as they continue to etch their Feeder/Stereophonics/Subways-style rock into the hearts and minds of North East audiences everywhere. It should be good.

There’s more from that man Howard Leese as the former Heart man finds himself the subject of the latest rushonrock Rider. And we’re into the Top 20 of The Vinyl Countdown with UK stars SHY (remember them?) making their mark.

All this plus news, views and reviews – check out Broadway Calls and Strawbs on Sunday – make rushonrock the rock stop this week. And every week. Enjoy.
