Brian McConnell isn't a legendary name in Rock 'n' Roll yet...but there's always tonight. McConnell is 100% Country, but raised on Rock n' Roll. Discovered in Los Angeles and mentored by Van Halen front man, David Lee Roth, and Doors guitarist, Robby Krieger, who is featured in McConnell's new video "Hollywood 911" on YouTube at youtube.com/supertonelive. The video for "Hollywood 911" was recorded on the Sunset Strip at the legendary Los Angeles clubs "The Viper Room," and "The Roxy Theatre".
McConnell considers himself a country music songwriter, but there is nothing country about "Hollywood 911". McConnell shows his roots and produces an epic rock anthem for the ages. Big guitars complemented by Krieger's monster solo, would make even Eddie Van Halen proud! "Robby and Dave sort of mentored and guided me through the L.A. club scene early on" says McConnell. Krieger joined McConnell on stage at sold out performances such as "The Roxy Theatre", "The Key Club", "The Viper Room", and the House of Blues on Hollywood's famed Sunset Strip.
In 2002 McConnell was influenced by one of country music biggest stars when he was asked to sing along side Garth Brooks at a Grammy benefit honoring Billy Joel for Music Cares. In that same year, McConnell was named one of "Music Connections" top unsigned artists.
The following year, McConnell found himself touring North America as personal assistant and tour manager to Van Halen front man David Lee Roth, and was instrumental in the 2007 reunion of Van Halen. "Dave taught me many valuable lessons about the Rock n' Roll business over the years which I now apply to my own career."
