Rock Wolves, the cracking new band founded by Herman Rarebell, Michael Voss and Stephan ‘Gudze’ Hinz, three of the most renowned and accomplished German rock musicians to have emerged in the last 40 years, have signed to Steamhammer / SPV to release their hard driving, melody drenched, utterly uplifting hook – laden self-titled debut album on October 28th.
‘Rock Wolves’, which will be available as an embossed DigiPak CD (with poster), 180 gram dirty white vinyl LP (with CD in a paper sleeve) and download, contains eleven excellently executed, joyous, timeless classic rock compositions.
The idea to start Rock Wolves was conceived in Autumn 2015, during a tour by Michael Schenker’s current band, Temple Of Rock, which Rarebell and Voss have been members of for the last five years. As drummer and songwriter in Scorpions, Herman Rarebell was significantly involved in eight of their studio albums between 1977 and 1996, including all-time classics such as ‘Lovedrive’, ‘Blackout’ and ‘Love At First Sting’. Guitarist / vocalist Michael Voss first caused a stir in the 1980’s with groups such as Mad Max and Casanove, and his role in Temple Of Rock is not only that of a frontman, but also that of a songwriter and producer.
When Schenker announced that he wanted to cut down on concerts in the coming months, an opportunity opened for Rarebell and Voss to start a new band together. They soon found the perfect bassist in Stephan “Gudze” Hinz, a founder member of H-Blockx and hence a representative of the 1990s rock generation. So here we have three illustrious musicians from three decades, and three artistic careers with similar but by no means congruent influences.
The band’s almost boundless musical enthusiasm is reflected throughout this diverse, stunning debut – patently the work of supremely capable and inspired, virtuoso musicians gelling instinctively. Never is this more evident than on the exuberant single ‘Rock For The Nations’, a powerful track with a painful yet upbeat message; “Instead of delivering tanks and arms all over the world, Germany should concentrate on exporting good rock music,” explains Rarebell. Similarly, the shuffle-groove driven ‘Surrounded By Fools’ warns against unscrupulous politicians; “Let’s not be dazzled by their colourful election campaigns. Those politicians can easily end up bringing war to their countries” states Herman.
Less controversial tracks include thoroughbred rocker ‘I Need Your Love’, glorious, strikingly contemporary ballad ‘Nothing’s Gonna Bring Me Down’, and ‘What About Love’, a cover of Jim Vallance’s song which Heart topped the US Billboard charts with for 28 weeks in 1985. “Our new version has been given the blessing by Jim Vallance himself. His only comment was: ‘Your version is even better than my original, so go for it’,” remembers Rarebell.
The bar may be pretty high for an act with such a talented line-up, but Rock Wolves have, exceeding all expectations, way more than stepped up to the plate with their astonishingly accomplished debut.
It may be strange for fans of classic rock to realize this, but the baby girls of your rock gods are no longer children. They are now fully grown, self-sufficient women, and many have germinated into beautiful, elegant girls. Actually let’s be blunt — a lot of rock star daughters are just plain hot. In truth, very hot.
From Alice Cooper to Gene Simmons to David Lee Roth, the female offspring of our favorite rockers are all making their own paths in life, most very successfully. You’ll find fashion designers, actresses, singers, philanthropists (and yes, one porn star) on our list of the hottest rock star daughters. Enjoy!
Her father Roger Waters may be famous worldwide for his tenure in Pink Floyd and his solo career, but India Waters is definitely forging her own path. This lovely young daughter has had a rather successful run as a model in recent years.
Waters has provided an interesting look for album covers from Green Nuns of the Revolution and Queens of the Stone Age in recent years. She’s also modeled for DeBeers, Amica magazine, Bare magazine, Frost French, Monsoon, and Vogue.
But what about music? Water got a taste of her father’s life as a young girl when she lent her voice for usage on his 1987 album, ‘Radio K.A.O.S,’ but, so far, she’s not been anxious to follow in his musical path.
Lauren Harris is quite stunning, but don’t let that make you forget this girl can seriously rock. Harris, the daughter of Iron Maiden bassist Steve Harris, decided to follow in dear old dad’s footsteps and has been establishing herself in the music industry over the last few years.
The vocalist got a giant boost to start her career, as she opened for Iron Maiden during their late 2006 and early 2007. But it didn’t take Lauren long to tire of the solo life, and she set about putting together a band.
Harris obviously has an eye for talent, as one of her initial musical partners was a talented guitarist named Richie Faulkner. However, it didn’t take long for Faulkner’s talent to shine through, and he was snapped up by Judas Priest to take over for K.K. Downing.
Despite the loss of Faulkner, Harris forged ahead and formed the group Six Hour Sundown with holdover drummer Olly Smith and new members guitarists Tom Gentry and James Bennett and bassist Mitch Witham. In 2013 she formed another new project, Kingdom of I, with help from songwriter Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics.
Most people don’t even know that the ultra-hot Minka Kelly is the daughter of former Aerosmith guitarist Rick Dufay. They’re more familiar with her acting roles on ‘Charlie’s Angels’ or ‘Friday Night Lights.’
Are we missing anything? Oh right… and she’s known for dating Derek Jeter of the New York Yankees. Wonder if she got a gift basket.
As with so many gorgeous actresses, Minka started as a model. But it wasn’t easy from the get go. She worked as a receptionist and a scrub tech while going on auditions. Fast forward to now, with Minka Kelly one of the hottest women on the planet. Kinda doubtful she’ll have a 9-5 job again, huh?
We figured we might as well put perhaps the most famous rockstar daughter on our list. So here’s Liv Tyler, daughter of Aerosmith‘s own Steven Tyler (though she was unaware of it until the age of 8), a flawlessly gorgeous and well-established actress.
She’s not eye candy, thrown a role or two because of her famous dad. No, she’s the type that stars in big films that go on to become franchises, including Lord of the Rings ( parts 1, 2 AND 3), Armageddon, and even the Incredible Hulk.
Is it just the Tyler genes? Who knows, but she’s not the only Tyler daughter here on our list.
Elizabeth Scarlett Jagger — at the young age of 28 — is an uber-successful model, working for Tommy Hilfiger and representing the Spanish fashion line Mango. It shouldn’t be a total surprise that this girl is gorgeous. Her mother is the former hottie, model and actress Jerry Hall. Yeah, now you get it.
Prepare yourself to see more Jagger’s on our list because Elizabeth isn’t the only hot offspring of his you’ll meet on this list.
For fans, rocker Alice Cooper is not only a musician but someone who throws elaborate stage shows filled with shocking scenes equal to a horror movie.
It wouldn’t be atypical to experience a concert containing guillotines, electric chairs, blood (fake obviously) and yes, that famed boa constrictor.
Seeing Alice Cooper was a theatrical show. But for now 31-year-old Calico Cooper — that was daddy at work.
Perhaps Cooper inspired her, because this hot rockstar daughter decided to start performing in her father’s show in 2000.
Who wouldn’t want to get up there and experience the terrifying and sometimes disturbing experience of seeing Cooper in action?
Like father like daughter.
AC/DC bassist Cliff Williams must realize he’s paying back some sort of karmic debt, as he now must try to protect his own offspring from exactly the kind of mayhem his band often sings about.
The reason being that his daughter, Erin Lucas, is ever so dangerously pretty.
And if you’re wondering where you’ve see this rockstar daughter before, we can surmise just what kind of television you watch. We’re not judging!
Sure enough, the younger Lucas had made big waves by starring on the MTV reality show ‘The City’.
Currently, she hosts ‘Sex & Relationships,’ which airs on CurrentTV.
AVY LEE ROTH
We promised there’d be a porn star somewhere on our list of the hottest rockstar daughters – meet Avy Lee Roth, the reported child of the one and only “Diamond” David Lee Roth of Van Halen fame.
Apparently, the famous singer is pretty hush-hush about whether or not the two are related, but according to Avy, she’s without a doubt the singer’s daughter. Do they have the same looks? It’s hard to tell. But the undeniable truth is when this hottie was conceived Roth was with a plentiful amount of beautiful women. So maybe the odds are in Avy’s favor.
And while we’re told Avy isn’t in the business anymore, her father just won’t stop rocking, having recently released his first album with Van Halen in 28 years.
On his long and sometimes treacherous pat down the road of rock, somehow Aerosmith‘s Steven Tyler was able to stop and have some really gorgeous kids.
23-year-old Chelsea Tyler is the second of Tyler’s kids to appear on our list. Two daughters. Both hot. Well done, sir!
Like so many rockstar daughters before her, once the media and modeling agencies were able to see that she kept only the best part of her father’s looks, Tyler was offered an array of jobs.
She served as the model for the Andrew Charles collection of clothing along with her father, who happened to be the inspiration for the line.
As for the Aerosmith frontman, he recently left the FOX megahit ‘American Idol’ and went back to tour with the band that made him famous.
Lily Collins — the hot daughter of Genesis drummer Phil Collins — is building a career for herself at the young age of 23, one that seems certain to allow her to escape the shadows of her father’s success.
The young actress/model has appeared on the small screen and silver screen, with roles in ’90210,’ ‘The Blind Side,’ and most recently as the star of ‘Mirror Mirror,’ alongside Julia Roberts.
The latter awarded her a 2012 Teen Choice Award.
Daddy Collins is mostly retired from rock music, but surely the legendary musician must be extremely proud at the strides his young offspring has made.
It seems that while these guys not only know how to rock the stage, they’re pretty good at picking women with which to have beautiful children.
Born to model/actress Patti Hansen and the Stones guitarist, Theodora Richards is now 27-years-old and gaining attention in more ways than one.
Back in 2006, she was asked to model for Tommy Hilfiger and has since graced the pages of magazines, clothing lines and even newspapers.
And while all that is exciting in and of itself, it was her recent 2011 bust that showed us she’s got a little bit of rock star running through her veins. She was arrested in New York for inking a nunnery with graffiti while holding marijuana. There’s Keith Richards’ spirit, eh?
The Demon of Kiss may not be happy to hear us point this out, but his daughter is incredibly hot.
Spurred largely by the success of ‘Gene Simmons Family Jewels,’ Sophie Simmons has been desired more than ever by fans all across the world.
With a rock star father and a former Playboy Playmate mother, it was hard to know if more of the beauty or the beast would emerge within Sophie. Gladly, worries were laid aside when she started growing up.
The Simmons’ daughter is also a true humanitarian, working hard to promote a number of charities on the popular television show and in her home life.
And while the family just finished the last season of ‘Family Jewels,’ Papa Simmons spent the summer of 2012 on the road, proving that rock just doesn’t die.
GEORGIA MAY JAGGER
Again with the good looking Mick Jagger offspring! Well, we shouldn’t be surprised, seeing as how the Rolling Stones singer has paired up with some of the world’s most beautiful women over the years.
Such is true of his daughter, Georgia May Jagger, whose mother is model and actress Jerry Hall.
The 20-year-old is the youngest female child of the once-upon-a-time twosome — falling in line as number five of seven kids for Jagger, spread throughout four different women.
Georgia Jagger, while still young, has already turned heads in the fashion crowd — grabbing the attention of numerous publications and conducting a spread of self portraits for I-D Magazine.
As for her parents? Jerry Hall is dating an Austrailian millionaire, and Mick Jagger is celebrating the Rolling Stones’ 50th anniversary.
Let’s just be forthright and say Kelly Osbourne is incredibly hot.
Struggling with weight is never easy. And in her case, not only was it difficult; it was also public. But sure enough, Osbourne broke through and is consistently making headlines for her dedications to her diet and total transformation.
Now, at the still-young-age of 27, the daughter of Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne has left behind the old days and gone into the business of fashion design. She’s also become a correspondent for comedienne Joan Rivers’ E! television show, ‘Fashion Police.’
And what about her parents? Well, they’re doing okay. Ozzy is still doing his part as the Prince of Darkness — reuniting with most of Black Sabbath — and Sharon continues making hilarious remarks on NBC’s ‘America’s Got Talent.’
All in all, the Osbournes have it pretty good.
Perhaps our most famous rockstar daughter is Norah Jones, daughter of Beatles collaborator Ravi Shankar. If you didn’t know this, it’s because her full name is Geetali Norah Jones Shankar.
Jones launched her solo music career in 2002 with her acclaimed album ‘Come Away With Me.’
Over the course of her career, Jones has been nominated for 16 Grammy Awards. She won a total of 9, including: Best New Artist, Album of the Year, Best Pop Vocal Album, Record of the Year and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance in 2003; Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals, Record of the Year, Best Female Pop Vocal Performance in 2004 and Album of the Year again in 2008. She also has 1 Brit Award and 4 World Music Awards.
In addition to all of this, Jones starred as herself in the 2002 Hugh Grant film ‘Two Weeks Notice.’
ALEXA RAY JOEL
Hard to believe, but this patriotic lady is the daughter of the piano man himself, Billy Joel.
Alexa Ray Joel is the only child of Joel and his former model wife Christie Brinkley, which would certainly explain her good looks. The couple divorced in 1994.
But her looks aren’t the only thing she got from her parents. Alexa also has her father’s musical talents and is a singer, songwriter and piano player.
The song ‘Lullabye (Goodnight, My Angel)’ is inspired by Alexa Ray, whose middle name is a tribute to the late Ray Charles. Her father also has a boat named after her, which in turn inspired the song ‘The Downeaster Alexa.’
In addition to her various musical skills, Alexa is also big in the New York fashion scene, often being photographed at various runway shows.
