Video: LA Guns – “You Better Not Love Me”

On the same day that Great White premiered their new video for “(I’ve Got) Something for You”, fellow ’80s hair metal rockers LA Guns show up with “You Better Not Love Me”.

The track is featured on LA Guns forthcoming release, Hollywood Forever, coming on June 5 from Cleopatra Records. There are those that bitch and moan that founding member Tracii Guns is no longer in the band but he’s tried to tour with his own version of LA Guns in recent years and nothing beats Phil Lewis on vocals.

LA Guns has a couple of Ohio dates coming up to promote the release:

* June 23 – Portsmouth, Ohio at the Columbia Music Hall with Skid Row
* June 24 – Akron, Ohio at Ripper Owen’s Tap House

Rib Cook-Off Wrap-Up: Rokken with Dokken

Rocklahoma went more modern rock this year, the M3 Rock Festival in Baltimore is a 6-hour drive, and Rock N America is a plane flight away in Oklahoma, so the closest we come, in the Buckeye state, to a hair metal festival happened yesterday afternoon on the banks of the mighty Cuyahoga River in Cleveland.

Don Dokken

Dokken, LA Guns, Trixter, and Danger Danger were the featured acts on the second night of Marc’s Great American Rib Cook Off & Music Festival and, as you might imagine, when you do the math (BBQ + beer + bands + $8 festival admission + Cleveland), you’ve got nothing but a good time (yeah, I realize that as this festival was going on, Bret Michaels was performing a show in Columbus).

Sunday: BBQ, beers, (hair metal) bands in Cleveland

Memorial Day weekend? More like Christmas weekend, at least for me. Later this afternoon, Dokken, LA Guns (featuring Phil Lewis), Trixter and Danger Danger will be performing at Marc’s Great American Rib Cook Off & Music Festival at the Time Warner Cable Amphitheater in downtown Cleveland.

Print this coupon out and show it at the door and receive a discount on admission ($5 instead of $8). The concert is included with the admission cost however if you want to sit and be closer to the stage, you can purchase concert tickets for $25.

If you can’t make it, don’t worry, you can follow along with the action at twitter.com/chipmidnight starting later this afternoon.
