My co-host at Bleach Bangs Radio (www.bleachbangs.com) introduced me to Sunset Riot. He told me that this band was a feel good band with incredible stage energy, catchy hooks, and all around great guys. When I finally got the chance to meet and see them I was wowed. I was lucky enough to interview the guys with Charlie for our show Music U-Night/Rock U-Night (www.rockunight.com). Here is the link for the interview:
My wife has always been an INXS fan and has always loved the iconic Michael Hutchence. I couldn’t believe the resemblance to Sunset Riot’s singer Delacoma Rio to Michael. When I told her she had to see them she was at first skeptical. When she finally got to see them she was hooked. We actually took a trip to Hollywood to catch their set at the world famous Whisky-A-Go-Go.
I have continued to remain friends and stay in touch with the guys in Sunset Riot even though they are back home in Australia. Here are some photo memories of their 2012 visit to the USA.
