The first honor to be handed out at the 2012 Revolver Golden Gods Awards in Los Angeles on April 11 was for 'Best Guitarist.'
Black Veil Brides
Nikki Sixx and his band of fellow miscreants in Motley Crue defined rock 'n' roll excess in the '80s. No band has filled Motley's slot as the baddest boys in rock in the modern era. Times have changed and rock bands aren't the party animals they used to be, something that Sixx acknowledged.
Black Veil Brides are back with a new three-song EP titled 'Rebels,' featuring an extended cover of the Billy Idol classic ‘Rebel Yell’ in addition to the guest appearance of guitar shredder Zakk Wylde on the KISS track ‘Unholy,’ and the previously unreleased track ‘Coffin.’ Even though it’s over before you know it, it provides the perfect reminder of the stellar year that Black Veil Brides had with the release of ‘Set the World on Fire.’
Black Veil Brides ooze confidence and they sort of have to. When you have such an extreme, heavily made up look and a lot of elitist haters critiquing your every move, you have to develop a thick skin. But none of that stops singer Andy Biersack, he of the inky black hair and layers of black eye kohl, from attempting to obtain his singular goal.
For Black Veil Brides, there is no division between their fans. The U.S. fans do not treat them better than the U.K. fans and vice versa. Instead, the Brides are beloved regardless of geographical local, but that dedication is not without some drawbacks, albeit minor! Oh, the price of fame.
