A new show on Planet Rock!

Great news!

After 8 years filling in as 'the cover guy' on Planet Rock, I will now have my own show on the UK's biggest rock radio station!

It starts 7pm MONDAY 2ND OCTOBER - entitled "Monday Night Rocks" as kind of a sister show to Andy Shier's Friday Night Rocks at the same timeslot

It's a chance for me to make a little corner of Planet Rock my own and play some big tunes to help you forget that it's only the start of the working week so you can smash on through to the weekend.

New Album “Rule Of Three” released on 3rd June - lyric video out NOW!!!

Ian Danter, Drummer For World’s Longest Running KISS Tribute Band Dressed To Kill, To Release 3rd Solo Album “Rule Of Three” June 3, 2022

Acclaimed hard rock songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and UK broadcaster Ian Danter is finally set to bring out his follow up album to 2015’s “Second Time Around” with a brand new collection of original rock songs entitled “Rule Of Three”.

KISS/Gene Simmons parody song

I put this song parody together at my home studio for Planet Rock after all the recent stories surrounding Gene Simmons' somewhat controversial comments on a whole host of topics, including Prince, the state of rock and roll and Donald Trump etc.

Paul Stanley ended up both defending and criticising Gene in an ensuing row with Nikki just made me wonder what the other members of KISS really think about Gene's seemingly never-ending opinions on everything...

Enjoy :)

Ian Gillan "Total Strangers" Parody

All about the news Ritchie Blackmore is set to abandon the "Hey Nonny No Nonny Ninny-O" tunes he does with his wife for a bit, and rock out!

He's playing 4 "rock" gigs in Summer 2016, and I wondered what Ian Gillan, Ritchie's nemesis, would make of the idea, and who would be involved with the abrasive "Man In Black"?
