Jake E. Lee’s Red Dragon Cartel Rock New Jersey

Red Dragon Cartel
Antonio Marino Jr., Loudwire

Jake E. Lee emerged from an '80s metal scene that celebrated excesses of every sort. Not the least of which was over-the-top guitar playing, many times at the expense of the music that was being created. Lee, however, stood out for being able to shred with the best of them but never at the expense of the song. From the lighting fast solos during his period with Ozzy Osbourne, to the bluesy-swagger of Badlands, to the heaviness of Wicked Alliance, there has always been something new and incredible up his sleeve.

So, the Revolver Golden Gods awards are done and it was a a fairly awesome evening (for me anyway.) By now you've heard about the winners, so I wanted to give you a run down of what happened on the black carpet before the show. I was fortunate to interview celebrities, nominees and performers as they made their way across the carpet into the venue. I got there early and got my camera and sound guys set up in order to be ready for the 5PM kickoff.

Motorhead
Charles Epting for Loudwire

Weekend one at Coachella is in the books. The famed Southern California music oasis drew more than 90,000 fans who endured blistering daytime temps, a surreal Saturday night sandstorm and a wide buffet of sonic treats. Sure, the onetime indie fest now features as much hip-hop and EDM as it does anything else. But it's not like there wasn't any metal or hard rock buried in the sand. You just had to know where to look and thankfully, the headbangers in the house were able to catch ultra-solid sets by the likes of Motorhead, Queens of the Stone Age and a host of others.
