‘Rock of Ages’ at the Winspear

Do you wanna get rocked?

American Idol contestant and now Tony-nominee Constantine Maroulis recently announced an end to his three-year gig as Drew Bowie, the wannabe rocker in the jukebox musical Rock of Ages, which is now playing at the Winspear. But his last performance isn’t until July, so in the meantime, he’s still ready to rock it.

“It’s been huge for me on many levels as an actor and being acknowledged by my community,” he says. “I was a rock star wannabe growing up with these songs from Bon Jovi, Whitesnake and other songs in my wheelhouse. This is a true artistic achievement and for it to all work out in this time when so many shows come and go, we’re kicking a lot of ass.”

So go on and feel the noise.

Jukebox The Ghost – Schizophrenia

I knew I’d leave something major out of yesterday’s year-end top ten list. Argh! This definitely should have been in my top five. Play LOUD.

Joe. My. God.

Jukebox The Ghost – Schizophrenia

Here’s Jukebox The Ghost’s Letterman performance from last night which I raved about in today’s open thread. Watch this now, their label’s Sales Prevention Team will probably get it pulled from YouTube. Song of the year for me, so far.

Joe. My. God.
