  1. Rivera ·
    Site is well laid out and very easy to navigate. More importantly, though, is the level of service that Paul Rivera provides. I emailed him recently regarding a problem I was having with my R100-212 and had a reply from him within 20 minutes t...(more)

  2. Rivera R100-212 ·
    This amp is definitely not a one trick pony. I am blown away with the versatile tones I am able to achieve. With the sound quality, capabilities, and service I have received from Paul Rivera, this may be the last amp I ever own.

  3. Charvel 625C ·
    I did not want to spend a whole lot of cash for an A/E as my heart will always be with electrics...I tried literally dozens of guitars before finding this one, and I was blown away with the quality of this guitar as compared to how much I bought...(more)

  6. The Lynch Mob ·
    Another nicely laid out site with it's big draw being the highly active message board. Also has "The Mob Shop", your one stop to shop for items related to Mr. Scary & the Lynch Mob, including CDs, videos, shirts, posters & the like.

  7. Stryper ·
    Articles, pictures and biographies galore, as well as a trading post for old paraphernalia. Updated regularly.

  8. Melodic Rock ·
    If you loved the music of the 80's, you'll love this web page. It is very diverse though, and includes everything from soft-rock types like Rick Springfield to more harder-edged stuff ala Ozzy Osbourne. Lots of interesting things on this page.

  9. The Zakk Wylde Webpage ·
    Information central on Mr. Wylde, including a biography, tour news, song lyrics, merchandise and downloadable desktops. Also has information on the specific guitars, amplifiers and effects Zakk uses...including close ups of his settings on his ...(more)

  10. Frank Gambale ·
    Pretty classy website for Frank Gambale, fusion guitarist extraordinare from Australia. An impressive part of the site is a monthly guitar lesson direct from Frank affectionately entitled, "Lick of the Month."

  11. Los Angeles Music Academy ·
    LAMA offers education for the musician in the form of one-year, six-month, three-month or even a one-week summer session to sharpen and create the skills needed as a professional musician or teacher. This is a very impressive school run by Fran...(more)

  12. The Very Best Of Meat Loaf ·
    18 tracks on this 2-disc set including all the popular and familiar ones like <b>Paradise, Life is a Lemon and Two Out of Three</b> as well as some of the lesser known tracks ala <b>Dead Ringer, Modern Girl and Midnight at the Lost and Found.</b...(more)

  13. New Tattoo by Motley Crue ·
    I too am giving this an average rating. There were 2 things about this disc that stands out to me. One, the music seemed to drop off on several songs. Seemed like a cool groove & riff started happening but then the bottom fell out & a new gro...(more)

  14. Boss AC-2 Acoustic Simulator ·
    I originally wanted something that would allow me to play my electric exclusively but switch to an acoustic sound if need be. If that's what you're after, I'd recommend keeping your acoustic handy. It'll work fine if your normal set had only a...(more)

  15. Live: Entertainment Or Death by Motley Crue ·
    Okay, I'm a sucker for live albums. This is actually a pretty decent one, with recordings dating back to 1984. I can actually hear Mick Mars' guitar progress over the years. Of course, you also get to relive Vince's ever whiny vocals, but hey...(more)

  16. Line 6 POD 2.0 ·
    I got mine when they were closing out the original versions and subsequently updated it to 2.0 via the freebie Line6 offer. It does more than I thought I'd be using it for. Again, the effects aren't the top of the line but, to give it credit, ...(more)

  17. Arizona Music Scene ·
    A premier website (perhaps the only?) totally dedicated to music in Arizona. Great resource. Contains links for local band listings, instrument shops, CD/record stores, radio stations, etc. Another great feature is the posting board...sell/tr...(more)

  18. Phoenix Musician ·
    Still a relatively small and unused resource but is laid out very nicely and has great potential for musicians in the Phoenix area.

  19. Motley Crue ·
    This is the "official" Crue website. Pretty standard as far as band pages go. Your typical album listings, lyrics, merchandise, forum and Nikki Sixx's online diary. Very few tabs, but a pretty decent site overall.

  20. Skid Row ·
    Nothing fancy. Pretty informative. Pictures, merchandise, message board, etc. The usual. Nothing too outrageous.
