Review Fix Exclusive: Maps to the Hollywood Scars’ Alex Grossi Talks New Album and More

Review Fix chats with Alex Grossi of MAPS TO THE HOLLYWOOD SCARS who discusses the project with former American Idol star James Durbin and their plans for 2017. A member of Quiet Riot as well, Grossi brings a certain level of star power to the table.

Review Fix: How did this project come together?

Alex Grossi: I met James (Durbin$ in 2011 via a mutual acquaintance. I remember being taken back, not only by his obvious vocal prowess but by his knowledge and love for real rock n’ roll. Then, last year I went to a Vegas show he was doing, and we ended up jamming together at the after-party. We then started sending ideas back and forth and before long decided, hell, why not make an album or two?

Review Fix: What are your goals for it?

Grossi: We don’t have any set goals, we just want our collective fans to hear it and hopefully they enjoy hearing it as much as we did making it.

Review Fix: What do you think makes it special?

Grossi: I think the most special thing about it is that we did on our own terms, our own way…..We don’t answer to a label, and we can basically do what we want professionally and musically….. It is a great feeling.

Review Fix: You’ve done a lot in your career, where do you think this project lines up in terms of your legacy in music?

Grossi: Personally, It is a continuation of the musical journey I am on. I feel that each project stands on its own, I have been lucky enough to play with bands from many different “genres” – So I think it encompasses that, but I always want to evolve as well….

Review Fix: What’s next?

Grossi: More Press.

Review Fix: Are you excited to tour with this group?

Grossi: Yes, our first day of acoustic appearances was great, can’t wait to do more.
