We all know what true rock legends look like. They’ve got the talent, charm, and sex appeal to rock their way in and out of any scene.
Rock stars have a reputation for being bad to the bone, care-free, slick-tongued renegades who live the life you wish you could. Their extreme, party-infused lifestyle adds a whole new meaning to the word ‘reckless’, but they’ve clearly left a legacy behind unlike any in modern culture.
One of those legacies involves an upcoming rock band comprised of some names that will ring a bell.
The band goes by “Suspect208” and they’ve just released their debut single, “Long-Awaited”.
Drummer London Hudson, who is Slash’s 18-year-old son, went to social media on Instagram and released a photo of himself along with Tye Trujillo, Noah Weiland, and guitarist Niko Tsangaris.
While Trujillo is also famously related to Metallica’s bassist Robert Trujillo and Weiland is the son of Stone Temple Pilots’ Scott Weiland, the guitarist, Niko Tsangaris, bears no ties to a famous rock star.
Despite this, Tsangaris and Hudson have been close friends since childhood and even formed a band named “Classless Act” that opened up for Slash at the Hollywood Palladium.
Tsangaris has spent time in Tommy Lee’s studio with producer Bob Rock.
His sound is leagues above many of today’s other band members and has the rap to prove it.
Tye Trujillo notably played bassist for the band “Korn” when he was 12.
He also played for The Helmets, Otto, and Thredge and has demonstrated how hard work can help accomplish any dream. Sharing the spotlight with his dad during his Metallica days definitely bolstered his confidence in the limelight.
These boys are setting out to prove the naysayers wrong, all while inspiring a new generation of rock-loving music fans.
The oldest of the bunch, Weiland, is 20 years of age and is excited to help raise the popularity of the band to new heights. His vocals have been widely praised and been given much attention on social media since he began to get into the scene.
Here we can see Weiland rehearsing and practicing his vocals before the big show. He’s got his mask clipped on his ears, so it shows that he’s at least been socially responsible through this pandemic.
Rocking the stage will take a new meaning once Suspect208 starts to get the recognition they deserve.
Niko can be seen with his slick, long hair playing the guitar like a true professional. His passion for music has followed him since being a young boy. Clearly, he’s embraced the lifestyle and will definitely be trying to elevate his game as the band continues to develop its sound.
The studio is where the magic happens.
Here we see Niko tuning the knobs and getting his jam going. A good guitarist knows it’s all about getting the right sound and that can take many, many improvisation trials to get it right. The process is ever-evolving and Niko knows this better than most.
London Hudson is the front runner drummer for this up-and-coming rock band.
He’s had experience in previous bands such as, “Classless Act” and even opened up for Slash on their 2018 tour. His first public show occurred at iconic LA venue Whiskey a Go-Go and since then he’s been a striking success every bit like his father.
It’s exciting to know that the future is bright for these young rock artists. They might not ever experience the high peaks of their dads’ former glory, but at least they can still play the music they love and share it with their fans all across the globe.
