Talking Dirty: An interview with Dirty Honey

For years now, there have been a multitude of voices proclaiming and lamenting that “rock is dead!” While you might be inclined to believe these declarations when you see events like the Grammy awards shuffling these categories off to the pre-television ceremony, it's a far cry from the truth, and there are plenty of artists out there that are still fighting the fight to prove that rock is alive and well. One of the newcomers on that battlefront is the Los Angeles-based Dirty Honey. Last year, without any support at all from a record label, the band's single “When I'm Gone” hit number one on Billboard's mainstream rock chart – a first for a non-label act in the charts nearly-40 year history! Their latest single, “Rolling 7s,” is steadily climbing the same chart, and is leading the charge for the band's current headlining tour.
