Michael Monroe

There's no doubt that Michael Monroe, the flamboyant former vocalist of the Finland glam band Hanoi Rocks, is one of the glammest guys in rock 'n' roll history, and these days he is still rocking out in the leather attire and big hair he was known for in the 1980s. His latest solo album, last year's Sensory Overdrive, features a backing band with previous members of Hanoi Rocks, the New York Dolls, Backyard Babies, and Danzig and is full of the same punk sounds made Monroe famous. And live, there is always the chance of hearing some of his old band's best hits like "Boulevard of Broken Dreams" or "Up Around the Bend." With Witchburn, Hard Roller, The Kamikazies. LAURA SWARTZ
