Punky Meadows is back in the NJ Groove and hitting the not so newly branded Debonair Music Hall. Don’t miss the legendary guitarist as he brings new originals and Angel classics to life.
It’s Halloween and with this post I am giving you a treat that will not promote tooth decay nor lead you to issues with your waistline. In the spirit of my inquiries that featured “Music Resolutions”; I’ve polled a number of Metal and Rock musicians in my world and asked them “What is your favorite Horror movie and why”. So get some popcorn, dim the lights and sit under a cozy blanket as we learn of some awesome talents favorite creepy film. It’s a lengthy list but splitting this one into parts didn’t make sense. Let’s go.
Chris Caffery (Savatage/Trans-Siberian Orchestra): “Halloween”. Because it was the only movie that not only scared me in the theaters it scared me afterwards in real life. In my opinion it’s the best horror film ever made. In the sense of true horror. A real killer. There was no superhuman bs in the first one. Just pure evil.
Gogo Melone (Aeonian Sorrow): From old films was “Dracula”… I really like the atmosphere and as a kid I was a big fan of vampires. The movie that scared my ass off the most and had nightmares for days with, were “The Ring” and “The Exorcism of Emily Rose”…I don’t think I’ll ever see them twice again ??
Jimmy Kunes (Cactus): God there’s so many. “Fearless Vampire Killers”, I know it’s a spoof. But what a film!!!
Elise Ryd (Amaranthe): “The Shining”. Those two kids are the most scary thing I’ve seen. And I don’t like that dude Johnny towards the end. “Here’s Johnny” 🤣 And this is true.. Every time I’m in a hotel with long corridors I expect those kids to show up in the end of the hallway. Haha, that image is haunting me, STILL! It’s Enshrined in my memory.
Archie Kuosmanen (Santa Cruz): Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining because it’s the undisputed heavyweight champion of horror flicks!

The legendary guitarist of Angel is Punky Meadows and he has returned to the famous Times Square venue to entertain his fans. You don’t want to miss out on this one.
The Details: Classic Rock and Progressive fans will likely remember the name Punky Meadows as being the man behind the six-string for the legendary Angel. The band was something else visually and had melodic sounds that felt like something out of Heaven itself (oh come on you know I had to go there). The guitarist has assembled a brand-new band of talented players and released an album entitled “Fallen Angel” last year. Meadows returns to the venerated Times Square club to continue supporting this record and thanks to the marketing team at the venue, some PiercingMetal Fans will be hitting this gig for free. Check out the details for this contest below.
When and Where: Saturday, April 29th at B.B. King Blues Club (237 West 42nd Street)
To Participate: I’m going to keep this one as simple as possible since I myself am not an expert in the body of work that Meadows has done over the years but I am hoping some of you can enlighten me about it. With this in mind please just give me three things about his albums, a favorite song or concert experience that is high on your rating scale and why this is the case. Make this good reading because the stuff remains on the website and can likely inspire new fans as well – like me Now since there are likely newbies in the mix that want to be a part of the fun, those people can get me three solid reasons why they must be at the show. Just make it a little interesting and more than “because he rocks dude” because that is just too un-original and boring. I’ll be responding to the comments that I like most right below their answer. This is for a single ticket only and no plus one requests can be honored. Sorry.

The Press Release:
One of the most striking hard rock bands of the 1970’s was undoubtedly ANGEL – who sported costumes and a highly theatrical stage show only rivaled by KISS (their then-label mates on Casablanca Records). Despite ANGEL splitting in 1981, the group’s popularity and influence remain high – resulting in the return last year of their larger-then-life guitarist, Punky Meadows, with his first-ever solo release, ‘FALLEN ANGEL,’ and a striking video clip for the rocking track, “Straight Shooter”:
“I’m very proud of this song and album,” says Punky. “Every song kicks ass and is a winner. Danny Farrow and I have a great song writing chemistry so it’s hard to to pick a favorite song because they’re all good. ‘Straight Shooter’ was our first single and video. This band is killer with all talented players and a killer singer.”
