• MOTLEY CRUE: Feeling Minnesota (1990)
    By STEVE MASCORD THE mercury in Minneapolis is plunging mercilessly past zero as Middle America wallows in snow. Vince Neil, however, is waltzing down the hotel corridor towards his multi-room penthouse in a sleeveless v-neck shirt and blue boxer shorts. His dirty blonde hair spews out from under a neatly reversed baseball cap, just like […]
  • BABY ANIMALS: London Calling (1992)
    By STEVE MASCORD DAVE Leslie reclined in his plush seat, surveying the cafe of a five star London Hotel that sits imposingly across the road from Lords. He looked like he’d just won rock’n’roll’s version of The Ashes. “Yeah, it’s worse than I thought it would be!” Leslie grinned Vocalist Suze DeMarchi, sitting adjacent, joined […]
  • THE PARTY BOYS – The Party Boys
    Album review: PARTY BOYS – The Party Boys There hasn’t been a tot of real grassroots guitar rock’n’roll to come out of Australia since Jimmy Barnes’ last record. A bit, but not much. In fact, there’s been very few enduring Aussie bands capable of blowing your head off since AC/DC. Paul Christie, Swanee and the […]
  • Motley Crue To Tour In May 1990
    By STEVE MASCORD BASSIST Nikki Sixx has confirmed Motley Crue will tour Australia in May — and challenged Jon Bon Jovi to a fight!

  • DOKKEN – Back For The Attack
    Album review: DOKKEN – Back For The Attack  A LOT of people thought Dokken would end up as big as Bon Jovi: their last LP  Under Lock And Key had tinges of greatness, but the general attitude was that they’d become a big band if only they’d quieten down guitarist George Lynch a bit.

MIKE TRAMP: Planes ‘Did Not Bring Down’ Twin Towers


FORMER White Line frontman Mike Tramp says he “firmly” believes the World Trade Center was not brought down by the two planes which collided with it on September 11, 2001 and that no aircraft hit the Pentagon.

Tramp made the Twin Towers assertion last night during his solo acoustic show in London and later expanded upon his beliefs – and discussed the Pentagon –  in an email to Hot Metal.

“I used to pass the World Trade Center  on my way to rehearsal and look up at it,” the 51-year-old told fans at the Star Of Kings in Kings Cross before playing 1987 hit, “When The Children Cry”.

“Years later, after I moved to Australia, the phone started ringing in the middle of the night. I thought ‘who the hell is that, I’m not answering’.

“The next morning, I turned on the television and of course it was all there. What happened on 911, I think, will not be surpassed in my lifetime.

“I have 250 books on the subject and every DVD ever released and I firmly believe those two planes did not bring down the Twin Towers.”

Tramp had earlier conducted an interview with Hot Metal. When we emailed him after the show, he responded with more detail about his beliefs but stopped short apportioning blame for the catastrophe.

“That can’t be answered in a short email as I head to bed,” Tramp wrote, upon being asked what brought down the World Trade Center.

“But I can put it this way, it wasn’t the two planes, and there are 100’s of organizations of scientist, architects, and pilots for the truth of 9/11 that says it can’t be done.

“Another thing is very few people knows that at 5pm in the evening, 10 hours after the two towers came down. A third building (world trade center 7) a 47 story building came down in 9 seconds in free fall, and no plane ever hit that.

“Only when you start reading the books and get the facts can you form your own opinion, I can’t do that for you.

“Maybe just start with the documentary “Loose Change” directors cut, it’s on YouTube like so many others, it’s a good start.

“Also no plane hit the Pentagon.”
