The Rods 45th Anniversary Australian tour here to play all of their classics for their first time in Australia!

The Rods carved a nice career for themselves in the early 80's, basically coming across as an American version of Motorhead in spirit if not in sound, a loud power trio cranking out blue-collar, anthemic hard rock tunes. By 1986 they had expanded to a four-piece on Heavier Than Thou and soon closed their initial career with the Hollywood album, which was intended to be an entirely different project but ended up released under the Rods name. Apart from their music, they are notable since founder David "Rock" Feinstein is the cousin of none other than Ronnie James Dio, and they performed together in Elf in the early 70's. Drummer Carl Canedy later became a respected record producer, and still performs as a session drummer. Feinstein left the music business in the mid-nineties, returned with a new Feinstein, and finally got back with the core duo of Canedy and Gary Bordanaro, releasing Vengeance in 2011, with the odd single release since then.
