Rebel Noise Group is a Heavy Rock/Metal Collective/ Super group cover band of sorts that played The Viper Room last night.
Last August, Doc Coyle played guitar at the Mass Mental show with Drummer Ken Schalk (Candiria, Mass Mental, Farmikos)– the group also included Robert Trujillo, Armand Sabal-Lecco and Whit Crane with an incredible guest list that included attendees such as Ozzy Osbourbe, Stewart Copeland, Duff McKagan, Phil Chen, Roy Matorga, Cliff Burton’s Dad, Roy, and many others.
Coyle also played bass for a Westfield Massacre show at The Viper Room earlier this year that also included tonight’s singer, Tommy Vext, with WM’s Tim Yeung and Bill Hudson. BTW, be sure to check out Doc’s recently published writing – it’s really good.
Tonight, The Iron Maidens‘ Courtney Cox joined Doc for guitar duties with former Otep “Evil J” Jason McGuire on bass Tommy on vocals, and Ken Schalk on drums. They started with Alice In Chains and played a Tool tune. They had fun and really rocked out. Great playing and a rather unexpected set list. Good stuff. The makings of a good unit. And Schalk is a monster on the drums. They won’t always have the same line-up due to schedules and the such, but that can always make things more interesting. They next pay next at the Slidebar. – CHIP SMITH
