An Interview With Michael Monroe

One of my favorite bands of the 80’s ‘Hollywood Metal’ era was Hanoi Rocks. I thought that they had a very unique sound, that set them apart from the rest of the pack.

When their drummer, Nicholas Dingley aka Razzle was killed in Vince Neil’s Pantera, I knew then that Hanoi Rocks would never be the same, if they remained a band at all. They did press on, but never were able to recover. Sadly, I was never able to catch them live, but thankfully I have their discography to listen to whenever I have a hankering for their particular sleazy brand of Finnish rock & roll.

Last week, the SoCal music blog City of Devils posted an interview with the iconoclastic frontman about what he’s been up to and, while he didn’t address the subject, you can follow the link in the preface to the interview regarding the myriad problems of ex-Hanoi guitarist, Andy McCoy.

Props to City of Devils
