contethumbYou'd think that when a New York Doll came to town the self-styled trashy music fans would be out in force. Think again, as it was left to the rebels with a clue to be blown away by Steve Conte and the Crazy Truth. The truth ain't pretty.......

FM_ThmbWith AOR legends FM back in the Principality for the first time in god knows how long, we asked Dave Prince to take it to the streets, and experience a top drawer line up that also featured Airrace and The Treatment. The Prince was hot wired for action, and who we were to stop him from air keyboarding like a teenager? He really does come alive in the twilight zone you know.
