Michael Des Barres - Hot n Sticky Live cover

Recorded live at L.A.’s Viper Room in November 2012, Michael Des Barres new live album is raw, sweaty and sticky rock n’ roll so viscerall that if you close your eyes you’ll almost swear you can smell the beer soaked carpets and feel him reaching out from the stage to you.

Des Barres, now 65, should need no introduction to rock fans as frontman of Silverhead, Detective, Power Station (post Robert Palmer), husband of super groupie and author Pamela Des Barres and from rock movie Sugar Town and many TV appearances including the full My Guide To Becoming A Rock Star TV series of 2002.

Most of Hot n’ Sticky comes from his 2012 album Carnaby Street, recalling his London upbringing, with Detective’s Detective Man and a raunchy take on Stop, In The Name Of Love thrown in for good measure.

A closing medley of his own My Baby Saved My Ass, Humble Pie’s I Don’t Need No Doctor and T-Rex’s glam stomper Get It On sums up the record in all it’s sweat soaked, dirty rocking glory.
