HOLLYWOOD

BandRock

Power rock at it's best with great crunching guitar hooks and catchy melodic vocals....a cross of Whitesnake, Aerosmith, GNR and Bon Jovi.

Biography

With a purpose in mind, Aubrey Rucker (drums/backing vocals) joined up with friend and ex-Warhead bandmate Lex Scott (vocals/guitar) to start the madness. The two of them in turn decided to call on Ty Allen (bass guitar) to anchor the rhythm section of the band. Ty is also an ex-member of Warhead. Needless to say, the three are working really well together again...
With the rhythm section complete, the guys set out to find a lead guitarist who shared in their vision. Enter Bill Rivers (lead guitar/backing vocals). When the call came, he was more than willing to answer! Paying his dues with various club acts, Bill was eager to find guys that were looking past the "town tour" scene...and he found what he was looking for!
The guys have a lot of experience under their belts, as they have all done shows with national recording acts such as Foghat, Hootie and the Blowfish, Blackfoot, Molly Hatchet, and the like.
As accomplished musicians,they have come together to form HOLLYWOOD and these four guys deliver the goods with power and energy. Not your modern day "three chord, no feel" type of group, HOLLYWOOD harks back to the day when rock meant "letting the music do the talking"....and talk it does! From hard rocking songs to melodic ballads they do it all and do it well.

Every Word I Never Said

Written By: Rivers,Scott,Rucker,Allen

I NEVER SAID WHAT WAS ON MY MIND
GUESS I THOUGHT THERE’D AWAYS BE ANOTHER DAY
BUT NOW I SEE THAT I’VE RUN OUT OF TIME
‘CAUSE THAT TOMORROW NEVER CAME………

YOU WERE NEVER AT A LOSS FOR WORDS
YOU KNEW JUST WHAT I NEEDED TO HEAR…

SO AS I SIT HERE STAIRING UP AT THE SKY
ALL THOSE MEMORIES DANCIN’ THROUGH MY MIND
WISHING WE WERE FACE TO FACE INSTEAD
I HOPE YOU CAN HEAR EVERY WORD…
I NEVER SAID….

ALL THAT TIME, WE WERE SO CLOSE, SO CLOSE
ALL THOSE MOMENTS I LET SLIP AWAY
AND ALL THE LOVE I TOOK FOR GRANTED
LORD, I WISH I WOULD'VE HAD ONE MORE DAY JUST ONE MORE DAY YEAH.....

YOU NEVER HAD TO MAKE THE TIME FOR ME
YOU WERE ALWAYS THERE…

SO AS I SIT HERE STAIRING UP AT THE SKY
ALL THOSE MEMORIES DANCIN’ THROUGH MY MIND
WISHING WE WERE FACE TO FACE INSTEAD
I HOPE YOU CAN HEAR EVERY WORD…
I NEVER SAID….

Shot Down in Love

Written By: Rucker,Rivers,Allen,Scott

BLIND SIDED IN THE STREETS OF LOVE
CAPSIZED UNTIL I WASHED UP ON YOUR SHORE…
I CAN TELL BY THAT LOOK IN YOUR EYES
I CAN TELL THAT YOU’VE SAILED THESE SEAS BEFORE…

I CAN’T STOP BELEIVIN’, I CAN’T STOP THE FEELIN’S
WHEN I LOOK AT YOU…

SHOT DOWN IN LOVE, YOU DIDN’T SEE IT COMIN’
SHOT DOWN IN LOVE

LOVELY LADY YOU’RE THE PARTY TYPE
A BIT MISLED, DON’T BELIEVE THE HYPE THIS TIME
DON’T BELIEVE IT…
THIS IS, ONE LIFE, ONE LOVE, ONE TIME,
I’LL LEAVE YOU BEGGIN’ GIVE ME MORE, MORE, MORE
MORE, MORE…GIVE ME MORE!

I CAN’T STOP BELEIVIN’, I CAN’T STOP THE FEELIN’S
WHEN I LOOK AT YOU…

SHOT DOWN IN LOVE, YOU DIDN’T SEE IT COMIN’
SHOT DOWN IN LOVE
