The Rocket Queens are a Brooklyn-based, all-female tribute to Guns N' Roses founded by 2010 Shred For Your Life champion and session guitarist Lily Maase. Unlike many all-female cover bands, the Rocket Queens have the chops and the stage presence necessary to kick out a faithful recreation of the musical prowess and onstage chemistry of the band's original lineup, complete with stage antics, attitude, and note-for-note riffs, vocals and guitar solos.
Witnessing the Rocket Queens live is the closest thing a modern audience can get to seeing hard rock's heaviest hitters as they were in their prime: seasoned musicians dripping with sweat, swagger, and way too much style for their own good. If, of course, the original GnR lineup had shopped at Victoria's Secret and worn 6-inch heels.
