Nothing warms the heart more than seeing the youth of today bringing back real rock n’ roll! We wouldn’t exactly call Shiraz Lane newcomers per say, as they’ve already done their fair share of touring, but with their debut album (and a damn fine album at that) released in 2016, they’re fresh on the scene and ready to take over the world! Here is the playlist of bassist Joel Alex’s life!


1. The first song you remember hearing as a child
The first one that really caught my attention and not being nonsense kids music would probably be “F-F-F-Falling” by The Rasmus

2. The first song you can recall ever really and truly loving
HIM – “Wings of a Butterfly”

3. A song that you loved as a teenager/reminds you of high school
Skid Row’s “Youth Gone Wild” takes me back to great teenage-parties

2015.09.05 Shiraz Lane gig (12)4. The song or band that got you into metal music (or the current genre you play in)
HIM and KISS without a doubt

5. The most recent song to get stuck in your head
“Could Have Been Me,” a great song by a great UK band called The Struts is on a daily repeat in my head

6. Your guilty pleasure song/band
Katy Perry

7. The first album you bought with your own money/the first album you were really excited to own
HIM – Dark Light

8. A song that makes you want to curl up on the couch with a hot beverage
I could do that with one of the greatest songs on earth and that would be “Estranged” by Guns N’ Roses

9. A song to blast at full volume while you’re on the road
Journey – “Don’t Stop Believing,” always when coming back from longer gig trips

10. The song you’d most like to be played at your funeral
Oh fuck… Queen’s “Who Wants to Live Forever” would be epic if we’d find Freddie to do it live
