Hanoi Rocks' Michael Monroe joins us to look back on a career which has taken him from the highest of highs to the lowest of lows. Exploding through the door in a jangle of bangles, Michael Monroe is every inch the rock star. We had fun, and being Hanoi, we could experiment with all kinds of musical styles, but it ran its course. The Street Poetry album was good, featured the best line-up, but it wasn’t fun any more for other reasons. So I called Andy and said, Let’s call it a day, do some farewell shows and put the band to its final rest. On the final Hanoi Rocks tour, in 2008, we spoke about the split.

Michael Monroe (ex Hanoi Rocks) talks Sensory Overdrive, Jack Douglas and staying rock and roll. February 16, 2012 By John Parks More. Michael Monroe is more than the Elvis Presley of Finland. Michael is a rock and roll statesman, a LEGEND and a hard rock pioneer. I interviewed his fellow HANOI ROCKS cohort Andy McCoy many years ago and have always wanted to get a few minutes to talk to Michael. The fact that his latest album, SENSORY OVERDRIVE, is probably the best thing he has ever released is just icing on the cake. LRI: I may piss some people off here but I think that the album is easily the best overall album you have made over a career that spans many, many releases. I think it sounds better sonically and has the best set of songs you have ever put together. I think that if someone was a kid just checking out your career they could easily START with this album and go backwards.
But nobody tell Michael Monroe that! Monroe rose to moderate fame in the early 1980s as the frontman of Finland’s influential glam rock band, Hanoi Rocks. The group scored moderate chart success in numerous countries but not the mainstream acceptance they deserved. Blackout States marks the TENTH studio album from Monroe as a solo artist (and that, of course, does not include his work with Hanoi Rocks and other side projects and such). Monroe keeps busy, still recording and touring on a regular basis, maintaining a reputation with a loyal fanbase that never seems to let up, and is always eager to see what he releases next. Blackout States is Michael Monroe's tenth solo studio album. Right from the beginning, this 13-track package is one that hearkens back to the classic Hanoi Rocks sound, combining the best of so many different rock and pop genres in the best of ways.
