RIK FOX PERFORMING AT CLUB LOADED THIS SATURDAY (7/19) AND INTERVIEW LINK FROM WVOX

Support: Farewells are always sad,  perhaps in this case, bittersweet as July 19th at CLUB LOADED, Hollywood, CA–marks the final performance of ‘The Winged Knight of Heavy Metal’, thunder-bassist RIK FOX (formerly of WASP, STEELER and SIN) as a special featured guest of SPIDERS and SNAKES.  The band’s regular bassist, Phil St. Vincent, will be returning back to the band after a personal hiatus and some time off. Rik said in his own words: “This will mark my FINAL LIVE PERFORMANCE with Spiders and Snakes. Phil has alerted the band that he is finally ready to return from his personal hiatus. After being asked by Spiders and Snakes co-founder, drummer, Tim Yausi,  to come in and record a track on their upcoming album, ‘The Year of the Snake’, the band asked me to step in temporarily and fill-in for Phil at the Rockers Against Trafficking Charity Benefit at Paladino’s, which received a ton of positive reviews.  The show led the band to asking me to do another show and another and so on. The vibe felt good and we all got on pretty wall as mates. Guitarist Chris Sheridan (formerly of the Dallas, Texas band SWEET SAVAGE) and I were both produced in the 80’s by the same producer, and have always been good friends. I had played a couple of gigs years ago in the early 1990’s with Spiders and Snakes, anyway. Plus working with BETSY of the band BITCH, (also on the album) as a fellow special guest and consummate professional, is always a lot of fun. I made it abundantly clear to the band that I was not there to jump another guy’s gig and grab it. I always knew that Phil might return at some point and take his rightful...
RIK FOX GUEST PERFORMANCE WITH SPIDERS AND SNAKES TONIGHT AT LOADED

RIK FOX GUEST PERFORMANCE WITH SPIDERS AND SNAKES TONIGHT AT LOADED

Support: WOW! What a line-up for this upcoming show at LOADED in Hollywood TONIGHT! Headlining is legendary 1980′s veteran of world-tours, Warrior Muscle-Rocker, THOR celebrating the Deadline/Cleopatra Records release of his new CD/DVD package “ONLY THE STRONG” with all the heavy, steel-bending and hot water bottle exploding showmanship fury he brings to the stage. In direct–support is Los Angeles favorite, SPIDERS and SNAKES…and what a line up here! Fronted by the legend himself, LIZZIE GREY, founder and creator of the original Los Angeles glam-rock band LONDON (with Nikki Sixx), which, over the years, has evolved with many name-players among their ranks, splitting off and eventually morphing into today’s SPIDERS and SNAKES. The current show line-up consists of LIZZIE himself, surrounded by a massive band of super performers, mostly veterans of the Los Angeles rock scene, who’s top-notch showmanship and performance are second-to-none. Thoroughly entertaining is powerhouse skin-basher (and coincidentally, the V.P. of Cleopatra Records) TIM YASUI of both LONDON and ULTRA-POP. Tim is a Carmine Appice styled driving force behind the backbeat, who also sings lead with another veteran show-stopper and the reigning, shearing metal queen vocalist, BETSY of the L.A. Metal band (and Metal Blade recording artist) BITCH, who’ve packed the house since the 1980’s. BETSY is also sharing some lead and harmony vocal duties with LIZZIE, including covers of such great songs as, The Sweet’s ‘Ballroom Blitz’ and Alice Cooper’s ‘Be My Lover’. Ever the professional consummate powerhouse vocalist, BETSY will be belting it out for this show and the rehearsals have been nothing short of amazing and awesome! This is one TIGHT band. A very special guest filling...
