Faster Pussycat. Real, dirty, rock n’ roll on tour with no apologies.
Hollywood – The land of lost angels and bruised egos has brought forth a gang of music groups. The punks, the metal guys, the hairbands and even some grunge rockers. And like usual, the singer is always the key component to make up a brand. Why the singer? Why the fuck not. Unless you’re playing piano or reinventing the axe – which no one has since Yngwie or Eddie. Then the singer matters most.
Plain and simple.
Such is the case with Taime Downe of Faster Pussycat.
Some singers got famous and some got rich. Some went back to college and some just ride motor cycles and play rock n’ roll.
This is Taime Downe.
No interview here, no big story to tell. Just straight up with a few tidbits about one of Hollywood’s 80s legends.
Sure we had Vince Neil, Axl Rose and Bret Michaels who all claimed the highest mountains from these circles. But someone has to be the Sunset Strips – Michael Monroe if you will. Or our Lemmy, our Iggy Pop or our Henry Rollins.
Taime is that guy in the Sludge book. Not to sound cliche’ – but Taime Downe is the real deal folks.
Faster Pussycat is on the road, and Taime will go kick 30 some odd cities asses in a way that only his filthy fucking self can. And we say this with great respect for a man who smokes his cigarette with a coolness that not one name comes to mind that matches it. Last we checked Taime is still a mother fucker of a frontman and he’ll be motherfucking stages starting October 18th.
Do yourself a favor. Grab some friends, throw on a dirty t-shirt (black preferred) and hit them up for a show. You won’t regret it.
