Jobanshi – neutral lanscapes

by Daphne Melvin

After seeing Foxy Shazam’s music video for “I Like It” off their latest album, The Church of Rock and Roll, I just haven’t been able to get them off my mind, particularly lead singer Eric Sean Nally. He has a voice reminiscent of Freddie Mercury and all the charisma of a rock and roll God. He’s everything rock and roll should be, and he’s every reason why we fell in love with rock music in the 60s. I’m not sure how this band has been able to stay under my radar, because they’ve been around since the early 2000’s and have definitely been noticed by SPIN magazine, Alternative Press, and have been touring with bands like the Strokes and Hole.

Axl RoseTen years ago, a friend and I moved to Los Angeles from Sacramento.  We came down one weekend for a TOOL concert at The Palladium and had such a blast that, within 2 weeks, I left my hometown and made Los Angeles my new home.

People ask why I moved.  Was it the map of the stars that we followed to the Playboy Mansion?  Was it Hollywood and Highland with it’s gold star sidewalks telling tales of fame and stardom?  Maybe it was the Rock Walk at the Guitar Center, where many a famous rockstar have left hand prints behind for aspiring musicians to measure up to.  Maybe it was just the glow from seeing my favorite band perform in a big, fun city.
