General | Latest Info

Legendary singer and multi-instrumentalist MICHAEL MONROE first rose to popularity in early 80s with his band Hanoi Rocks, which has proven to be one of most influential bands in history of hard rock, punk rock and heavy metal with band ' unique and infectious sound, which was equal parts Iggy Pop, Rolling Stones, Black Sabbath and T-Rex. Not only do bands want to sound Hanoi Rocks, but they also want to look like them, too. Especially MONROE with his huge, teased blonde hair thick, almost girly, make-up. You could arguably say that whole hair metal look was born when first LA bands of 80s saw Hanoi Rocks album covers and immediately started trying to look like MONROE. In fact, Axl Rise of Guns N Roses has often said that without Hanoi Rocks, there never have been Guns N Roses. To that end, Axl was definitely trying to replicate Monroes classic look in GNRs video for Welcome to Jungle. To show his gratitude, Axl soon repaid MONROE by appearing in his live video for Dead, Jail or Rock N Roll, one of massive singles from his second solo album, 1989s Incredible not Fakin It. Not only do GNR owe big debt to MICHAEL MONROE, you could also argue that there never been Poison or Faster Pussycat or Enuff ZNuff without his look and covet sound of Hanoi Rocks. These days, MONROE is enjoying very successful solo career. His new album, One Man Gang, is his fourth record in row that is truly all killer, no filler. They were talking about high energy rock songs with punk rock flair that you want to listen to over and over again. Fans are going to go crazy with excitement when album drops on October 11 and blow them away. Songs like Last Train to Tokyo, One Man Gang and Hollywood Paranoia are among Monroes ' catchiest work to date, all high addictive earworms. Then there are other songs where he tries different things, all of which pay off perfectly. Ive listened to stream I was given in preparation for this interview so many times Ive lost count. In short, it fan-fucking-tastic. When stream ends and starts again, it is so contagious that I usually listen to it three times in row before I feel need to put something else ON. No kidding. Whether youve been lifelong fan of Monroes since Hanoi Rocks days or youve never heard of him and his music before, if youre hard rock or heavy metal fan, you will not be disappointed with One Man Gang. Check out singles below and be sure to listen to Blackout States, his 2015 solo album, to get acquaint with Man, myth and legend. Naturally, we suggest our interview while enjoying his music. That is, if you can manage to sit still listening to his movers and shakers.
