The Rods!!!

Image Hosted by
I got lucky last week and saw the Rods play for free at a NJ record store. I haven't been to a live show in a while, so this was a lot of fun for me. I hadn't seen them since their Wild Dogs years(1983 or 84). The band was from Rochester NY, and featured Ronnie James Dio's cousin on guitar. The guitarist also played with Dio in Elf.
At any rate these guys have a new LP coming out, and they are playing shows with all original members. If you get a chance, check them out. I would love to see a full set at a club by these gents.

The band is actually from Cortland,NY...that's where "Rock" and Dio grew up...they have played Rochester many times,though....I would usually catch them at the Penny Arcade,a legendary Rochester club that is now closed....""Rock" Feinstein still owns a popular restaurant down in Cortland,called The Hollywood Bar and Grill....
