Judas Priestess: Laying the Law

At the recent Hixonfest, the Judas Priestess played a furious set right after New Jersey's Metaleros The Hixon almost burned the house down. The all female Judas Priest tribute band puts the pedal to the Metal, and they do it from start to finish. Judas Priestess deliver a vulgar display of adrenaline, that can be addictive. Not only can they make the dudes headbang out of control, they also get the chicks to shake their booties lambada style. When the Judas Priestess ladies rock the hell out of the stage, nobody is safe.

One of the goals of Horns Up Rocks is to showcase the role of women in Heavy Metal. This is why we made sure to have Judas Priestess come and take part of the 2010 Hixonfest. Additionally, we asked Frankie Scorpion (Leader of the Gypsy Queens and CEO of Crown Ink Divas) to host a sexy model search. Did we mention that Richard Christy (Howard Stern Show & Charred Walls of the Damned) hosted the entire event?

Additionally, we recently recruited actress and model "Metal Love" to be one of the Horns Up Rocks hosts. We figured that if we are going to talk the talk, we might as well walk the walk. Here is the interview "Metal Love" conducted with the Judas Priestess, followed by an interview that Horns Up Rocks founder Jo Schuftan did with Frankie Scorpion and Jojo (Judas Priestess drummer), and we even included bonus footage of Richard Christy making people laugh hysterically. Sit back, relax, and throw those HORNS UP!

A SEVERED Warning!

A couple of weeks ago, we joined the Severed famila in Staten Island for a memorable video shoot/pool party/summer bash! The event was hosted by Severed's bassist John Effin Wiley (also CEO of 2 Legit Bookings), and no actors were needed. Severed's loyal fan base came from all over the tri-state area for a true summer party. The band has always been about uniting people through their music, and witnessing this first hand at the Severed shows has always been a blast. Now you get to witness what the Severed experience is all about, here is the video for their song "My Warning"! You have been WARNED! \m/

Robbed Flynn

Machine Head's front-man Robb Flynn is not a happy rocker. Yesterday afternoon while Robb was picking up his son from school, his house was robbed. The burglars stole his wives jewelry, laptops, wake-boards, cash, and most importantly 4 of his guitars. One of those guitars was the one he recorded Machine Head's first album "Burn My Eyes" with. They also took a guitar that was a gift from Dimebag Darrell, which Flynn used as an inspiration when recording "The Blackening". To make matters worse, they also stole his son's mini Flying V, which Flynn had given to him for Christmas.

This is a statement from Robb Flynn, regarding the robbery:

"I am offering a $1,000 reward for the return of the Black Ibanez strat along with many stickers, a "Designated Drinker" sticker. Additionally, I am also offering a $2,000 reward for the safe return of the blue Washburn Dimebolt prototype."

"An APB has been put out to every Guitar Center in Northern California and the Police were able to get several fingerprints off of the 2 acoustics that the thieves handled, yet bizarrely left behind. Sightings of two suspicious vehicles have been reported, one a green/teal U.S.-make pickup truck, the other a white full-size work van."

"If anyone sees or hears of anything on Craigslist, eBay, at their guitar shop... anything, anywhere! Please contact us immediately at mike@machinehead1.com."

Here is the coverage of ABC7, who were awesome enough to help Robb Flynn regain his stolen items!

ROCKED for the Cure

This weekend we headed over to "Jugs-N-Strokers" in Merrick Long Island, for "The When- I Awareness Rock Show". The event featured live music by The Penguin Revolution, The Resurrection Sorrow and Sex Slaves. It also featured some amazing raffles, plenty of food and a DJ set by Jo Schuftan of Horns Up Rocks (who volunteered to DJ in order to help the cause).

The crowd was a mix of bikers (Jugs-N-Strokers is a biker bar), young adults and even some oldies. Everyone there was in high spirits and very generous when it came to donating money for this great cause. We were very honored and proud to have been part of such a successful event. And let it be known that Horns Up Rocks is here to help the Rock N Roll community in good times and bad times.

We encourage every single of one of you to visit the When-I Organization website, and to help this great cause! \m/
