I remember writing about band reunions & comebacks almost a year ago (check it out here) and how things have changed as more and more well-known or underground bands are reuniting these days and start touring and releasing new albums.   To my surprise, after writing the editorial about the “… Read More

Every start is difficult… that’s what we thought before we decided to put Grande Rock online again back in late 2011, after a 4year hiatus.

Where are the Rock Stars of our time? I mean like the Rock Stars of the old days. According to the “Rock Star” definition: “a Rock Star is a famous or successful member of rock band, especially with a celebrity status”.

It’s the modern rock/metal music of our time… actually after the 00s when everything changed in a “weird” way globally and not only in the music part. Why’s that? What’s going on with the so called “modern” music that once was very trendy, but over the last years has started to become a bit dull… Read More
