Ken Susi is most known as the guitar player for metalcore giants Unearth, but Susi has quietly built up a resume that showcases his many talents within the music industry from producing a handful of records like ‘Hardcore Lives’ by hardcore legends Madball and Ligeia’s “Your Ghost Is A Gift’ and “Bad News’ to name a few.  Ken has also carved out a career over the last few years  being a brand ambassador and artists relations rep for Fishman Pickups which has become one of the biggest pickup brands thanks to Susi.  Oh, and he also put out a scorching new record with his band Unearth, ‘Extinctinon(s)’, which is their seventh album over their 20+ year career.

Josh Todd Of BUCKCHERRY “The Type Of Rock We’re Doing Has Never Been Mainstream.”

 

Buckcherry have had their share of ups and downs over the bands nearly quarter century of existence. From their breakout hit, ‘Lit Up’, off of 1999’s self titled debut the band brought back a sense of danger and sex appeal to rock and roll when down tuned guitars and rapped vocals had taken over the mainstream. The band broke up after dismal sales for their follow up, ‘Timebomb’, but were resurrected years later when they self released 2006’s ’15’ which included the mega hit ‘Crazy Bitch’ singles ‘Sorry’ and ‘Everything’, putting the band back into arenas opening for Kid Rock and Motley Crue.  Since then the band hasn’t looked back with a myriad of lineup changes which sees vocalist Josh Todd as the sole original member.
