Gary 'Rockulus' Clarke

Rockulus Maximus

In case you've either been too busy working your knuckles to the ground or have been distracted with beautiful bodies seducing your time, the Irish guitar legend Bernie Tormé has a new campaign doing the rounds.

To say that it's proving to be a success would be an insult to what has been achieved already. At the time of going to press, he had reached 237% of his goal (10% towards Teenage Cancer Trust) and still has 95 days remaining.

Proving he isn't just all guitar, Bernie proves he's all heart as well and has offered for FREE a brand new track titled 'Crash 'N' Burn' as a thank you to those who have pledged already.

This new track will be merely one of several that Bernie will be playing on his upcoming October UK jaunt. The shows that will be obliterated by his first new solo material in around 15 years are the following:

15th Oct - Leamington Spa - Zephyr Lounge

This is where you can find his Pledge Music campaign:



Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.


As well as shooting the band several times in England, this collection includes images from a session at the band's rehearsal room in Boston. Littered throughout is a mixture of live and off stage photos including a selection of photos taken at London's famous Marquee club when they were joined on stage by Jimmy Page.

This limited edition hardback book, presented in a flight case and printed on silk paper, is an opportunity to own a unique selection of photos, most of which have never seen the light of day before.

This unique item is presented in an aluminium flight case and will be published in late November. Earlybird subscribers who order by 31st October will have their name printed within a dedicated page in the book.
