RATED X Featuring JOE LYNN TURNER, CARMINE APPICE, TONY FRANKLIN: 'Stranger In Us All' Lyric Video
The official lyric video for the song "Stranger In Us All" from RATED X (formerly LEGACY X), the new band featuring legendary vocalist Joe Lynn Turner (RAINBOW, DEEP PURPLE, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN), drummer Carmine Appice (VANILLA FUDGE, CACTUS, MOTHER'S ARMY), bassist Tony Franklin (THE FIRM, BLUE MURDER) and guitarist Karl Cochran (JOE LYNN TURNER, NUCLEAR ASSAULT), can be seen below. The track is taken from RATED X's debut album, which will be released in Europe on November 7 and in North America on November 11 via Frontiers Music Srl, the Italian-based label known for embracing new music from legendary rock artists. The CD features all-new songs built upon a classic hard rock foundation, with a distinctly contemporary edge. RATED X was formed at the suggestion of Frontiers president Serafino Perugino, who mentioned to singer Joe Lynn Turner that a band of highest-caliber musicians should be assembled to create an album of classic hard rock music. Turner, the former lead vocalist for both RAINBOW and DEEP PURPLE and a solo artist in his own right, agreed, and the search for the right players was on. Carmine Appice, who already had a relationship with Frontiers, was on board immediately. A true percussion icon, Appice's resume is one that rock legends are made of: VANILLA FUDGE, CACTUS, OZZY OSBOURNE, ROD STEWART, BLUE MURDER, KING KOBRA and others. Appice's former BLUE MURDER bandmate and bassist Tony Franklin (best known for his work with THE FIRM, Jimmy Page, Paul Rodgers, David Gilmour, Kate Bush and WHITESNAKE) signed up next. After a lengthy search for the right guitarist, they settled on longtime Turner collaborator Karl Cochran, who has also worked with Ace Frehley in the past. "I believe we wanted to keep it a bit retro with a modern edge," says Turner. "The songs are classic rock, but then that's an understatement. They are what they are; and they transformed as we went along recording. So, all in all, we are very happy to finish the record and finally able to get it out to the public. Everyone in this band is a true individual and stylist. When you put it all together, you have RATED X." The debut album, simply titled "Rated X", is remarkable in that it sounds like a band that has worked together as a unit for years. The songs are powerful and the performances are tight and innovative. Frontiers in-house producer Alessandro del Vecchio not only handled studio production but added keyboards on several tracks. Pat Regan (MR. BIG, DEEP PURPLE, GOTTHARD, KISS, DORO) mixed the album. Says Appice: "With [Alessandro's] help in coming up with the song ideas and working together with the band, I believe we came up with the sound from the late '70s-'80s. To me, it sounds like BLUE MURDER with Joe Lynn Turner singing. Having Tony and myself as the rhythm section and with the heavy guitars, it gives the record a BLUE MURDER vibe. Then, adding Alessandro on keys gave us a bit of the DEEP PURPLE thing. It all works together and I loved playing each song.” "Rated X" track listing: 01. Get Back My Crown 02. This Is Who I Am 03. Fire And Ice 04. I Don't Cry No More 05. Lhasa 06. Devil In Disguise 07. You Are The Music 08. Peace Of Mind 09. Maybe Tonight 10. On The Way To Paradise 11. Our Love Is Not Over 12.

MÖTLEY CRÜE: Fan-Filmed Footage Of Greensboro Concert
Fan-filmed video footage of MÖTLEY CRÜE's October 22 performance at the Greensboro Coliseum Complex in Greensboro, North Carolina can be seen below. According to Las Vegas Weekly, there are tentative plans for MÖTLEY CRÜE to end its "The Final Tour" by playing "couple of nights" in Las Vegas in late 2015 and finishing off with a few shows in the band's hometown of Los Angeles. "Rumor has it, the last few shows are going to be Vegas and L.A., because we wanted to end in 2016 in Los Angeles where we started," MÖTLEY CRÜE singer Vince Neil told the site. "After New Year's, we'll do three nights at one of the arenas in L.A.," Neil added. "And then do a special show at the Whisky a Go Go on our 35th anniversary." MÖTLEY CRÜE drummer Tommy Lee recently told Rolling Stone: ""We want to finish where we started. There's talk about the Staples Centre and the Forum, though it might end with a 1 a.m. show at the Whisky. Fuck, we all used to live around the corner from that club." Sixx added. "After we take the final bow, I'm gonna drive home alone with the radio off. "I'll go past the Roxy, the Rainbow and the Troubadour. I'll open the door to my house and be like, 'Where did all the fucking years go?' Then I'll close the door and wait for the next chapter." MÖTLEY CRÜE in August completed the first leg of its "The Final Tour" with support from Alice Cooper. The current leg of the trek kicked off on October 10 in Oklahoma City and will conclude on November 22 in Spokane, Washington. While announcing the first details of "The Final Tour" at a Los Angeles press conference in January, the four members of MÖTLEY CRÜE revealed that they took the unusual step of having their lawyer draw up a formal "cessation of touring" agreement that goes into effect at the end of 2015 and prohibits the members of the group from going on the road again under the MÖTLEY CRÜE banner. "The only loophole is if all four members agreed to break the contract," Sixx said before adding. "There is no amount of money that would ever make me do it again. We'd have so much egg on our face." After the completion of the farewell tour, MÖTLEY CRÜE guitarist Mick Mars is expected to put the finishing touches on his long-in-the-works debut album as well as a memoir. Sixx will focus much of his efforts on his other band, SIXX: A.M., while Neil will continue his solo career. Lee's plans have not yet been revealed, but he did tell Newsday: "I am writing and putting things aside. It's a different direction from my last solo work because I'm changing around all the components. It won't be something you've heard or seen before. Believe me, I'm not done after this."
