Bio

“I didn't do it for money, I did it all for free/I did it all to fill the fucking hole inside of me” -- “So Far” Don’t call it a comeback. For the founders of Buckcherry – lead singer Josh Todd and his co-writer, guitarist Keith Nelson – the band has never really been away, and that urgency comes through loud and clear on “15,” their first album in four years. “My desire never left,” says tattooed frontman Todd, a whirling dervish onstage with a classic rock & roll yowl that places the band in a unique space at the crossroads of punk energy and metal power. “I’m a musician, a performer, and a songwriter, and I’m still really passionate about entertaining and making records.” You can hear that intensity on the opening salvo of “So Far” and in “Next 2 You,” a collaboration between Todd, Nelson, bassist Jimmy Ashhurst and songwriter Marti Frederiksen (Aerosmith). The album’s first single, “Crazy Bitch,” was the last song written by Todd and Nelson before Buckcherry’s hiatus, so it is fitting that the track has become the anthem of the band’s rejuvenation. “We had to take a break and assess what was important, and that’s creating music that fills what we see as a current void for classic rock with a modern edge,” says Nelson, a self-dubbed “East Coast blues-rock guitar guy” from Beaver Falls, PA. “We were just pulled apart by so many outside forces that took us away from what we set out to do.” Recruiting guitarist Stevie D., drummer Xavier Muriel, and bassist Jimmy Ashhurst, Buckcherry was energized enough to record their new album in 15 days (hence the album’s title), with Nelson co-producing alongside Mike Plotnikoff and Paul DeCarli. It’s a throwback to discs like the first Led Zeppelin album – made in one week with a barely contained rush of inspiration and spontaneity. “We're very fortunate to have guys playing with us now who are true believers in what we want to do,” says Nelson. “I never realized how much fun and creatively inspiring this could be. It’s been a fuckin’ blast.” “Buckcherry is a rock & roll band. We wanted to get that vibe back which made us so explosive,” agrees Todd. “We went out to find the right guys who had that same mentality. These guys are in for the long haul.” “Think about what you know/Forget about what you’re told/See how your story grows and let it come from your own mind/Do all your favorite things/Cover it with all your dreams/Breathe it, and smoke it, and fuck it and make it something” – “So Far” The L.A.-based band broke onto the national scene in 1999 with their critically acclaimed self-titled debut album, produced by Terry Date and Sex Pistol Steve Jones. They scored with such modern rock hits as “Lit Up,” “Check Your Head,” and “For The Movies,” and quickly ignited a following of passionate fans craving a return of true rock and roll. “Coming on like the Black Crowes by way of AC/DC,” raved Entertainment Weekly, “this L.A.-based band is at its best blasting its way through hard-hitting riff rockers.” Melody Maker boasted that Buckcherry is “a band who kicks arse, ‘cause that’ why God gave us shoes,” and Q called the debut “a hugely entertaining record,” recognizing the “rumpty-tumpty groove of AC/DC and songs which recall such long-forgotten Sunset Strip bands as Junkyard and Little Caesar.” The band “establishes itself in adult Beavis & Butthead country,” added Mojo. “It's Riffs R Us." Buckcherry released their second album, “TIME BOMB,” in summer 2001, followed by a successful stint opening for one of their longtime heroes, AC/DC. However, in the wake of subsequent corporate record label changes, the group's momentum stalled, band members split, and Todd and Nelson were left trying to right the sinking ship. It placed a tremendous amount of financial and emotional pressure on the band, forcing them to take a break to re-evaluate their future direction. While on hiatus from Buckcherry, the duo was recruited by Slash, Duff McKagan, and Matt Sorum to play a benefit for the late drummer Randy Castillo. Soon afterwards, the ensemble began writing material and playing new songs, and although it never panned out, these sessions served as the precursor for the infamous “G&R Project” – now known as Velvet Revolver. “It made us realize how much fun it was to be in a band again,” says Todd. “We began to focus on what mattered – the music – and what Buckcherry represented and believed in. We were able to turn our disappointment at the label situation into a new direction.” “By the end, I was just so spent dealing with all the egos, I needed to take some time off,” explains Nelson, who ended up with a co-writing credit on “Dirty Little Thing” from Velvet Revolver's hit debut, “CONTRA
