Tommy Lee Face Tattoo, Nonpoint, LA Guns & more

Category: CD/Video Reviews


Random tabloid rock news for the last weekend of July was Motley Crue Drummer Tommy Lee getting 2 face tattoos done by artist Mario Barth.  Fan reaction’s were varied with most fans believing that Lee had made a huge mistake. 

On The Rock N Roll Experience Facebook page fans commented:

"So did he have a mid life crisis?"

"Tommy Malone."

"He Ruined his cute face"

"His son should kick his @ss again."

"Ewwwwww! He ruined his face!"

"Who gives a shit about anyone putting any tattoo on their face?! It's not your face, shut the fuck up and leave people alone."

"What an idiot"



NONPOINT debuted a brand new video entitled “Remember Me”.  This Frontlines tribute was edited by artist and creator Francesca Ludikar and features 233 essential workers made up of nurses, doctors, EMT’s, first responders, local and federal law enforcement, firefighters, military, postal, shipping, grocery, essential store workers, fans and their children who took part in what will go down in Nonpoint history as our biggest thank you for the sometimes thankless sacrifice you all make for us. This is the bands sincerest appreciation to everyone in the fight against the pandemic.

Dirty Honey took to the hills - with suitcase in hand - and shot an acoustic performance clip of their song "Down The Road" as the newest installment in their "Suitcase Sessions" video series.  Due to the COVID-19 shutdown, Dirty Honey launched the series when the band had to cancel its plans to travel to Australia to record new music with producer Nick DiDia, as well as perform their first-ever concerts there and in Japan.  

"Down The Road" is a seductive and melancholy anthem and this acoustic performance underscores the band's strong connection to the blues.  The video's gentle transition from late afternoon to dusk is courtesy of cinematographer Nick Almanza and Director of Photography Jonathan Suarez.  You can check out the clip HERE.

From the band's Los Angeles base, Dirty Honey has been writing and demoing new music with Australia-based producer Nick DiDia via Zoom, and are looking to meet up with DiDia to record either in Los Angeles or Australia - depending on travel restrictions - this summer.


Following on from the release of their single ‘Crawl’ back in April, which clocked up well over 100,000 streams on Spotify within weeks, L.A. GUNS are set to drop their next track ‘Well Oiled Machine’ on June 29, through Golden Robot Records.

 Also lifted from their forthcoming album, Renegades (slated for release later this year), ‘Well Oiled Machine’ sees L.A. GUNS as just that; a well-oiled machine that is fuelled by high octane rock ‘n’ roll. Whilst their classic L.A. rock sound remains, the band have upped the ante here adding a little more polish. Sonically, ‘Well Oiled Machine’ easily drops into today’s rock market.
