taming the black dog

Voodoo Six are to play a special acoustic set this Wednesday at Nambucca, London as some of the finest UK rock, Metal and blues acts join forces for an event that aims to raise awareness for mental health and suicide.

All proceeds of this event will be donated to Sane UK to help in their tireless and exemplary work in trying to raise awareness for mental health issues through the UK.

As well as Voodoo Six, also performing on the night will be Cairo Son, London Blusion, Jawbone and Romances and the the whole event will be hosted by MetalTalk's Steve Göldby.

Tickets are £10 in advance here or on the door. Doors open at 6:00pm with live music starting at 7.00pm.

Voodoo Six have just scored a big hit with their new album, 'Make Way For The King', and guitarist Matt Pearce told us:

"Voodoo Six are very happy to be supporting such a worthy cause that helps fight a terrible condition that affects way too many people. Looking forward to playing some of our music in a very different style than usual to make it a special appearance for us.

"See y'all there, get there early! Onstage 7.15pm..."

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is strictly limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.
