Michael Monroe’s last album, Sensory Overdrive, was a worldwide critical and commercial success. The band’s new album, Horns and Halos, which was released world-wide on August 23 is a cosmopolitan affair, written and recorded around the world by the international posse.
The beating heart of the group consists of bass player, Sami Yaffa, and drummer, Karl Rockfist. Sami and Michael go way back, to the 1980s.
Sami played bass in Hanoi Rocks and started Demolition 23, with Michael. Karl has gone from charging neighborhood kids to see his pre-teen KISS cover project to pounding the skins behind stars, like Glenn Danzig and Joan Osborne.
The band’s six-string guts pack a real punch with Swedish legend Dregen and lead guitarist and primary songwriter, Steve Conte.
I had the pleasure of speaking to the legendary glam rock singer, Michael Monroe, about his latest release and the importance of keeping one’s integrity.
