A 10-minute audio interview with vocalist Michael Monroe of Finnish rock and roll legends HANOI ROCKS conducted by Norway's Metal Express Radio has been posted online at this location.Following HANOI ROCKS' announcement that they were calling it quits, they have released a two-CD retrospective compilation "This One's For Rock 'N' Roll - The Best Of Hanoi Rocks 1980-2008". This superb package includes 33 songs, encompassing both distinctive parts of their career, the '80s and the new millennium. The lavishly packaged set includes many previously unreleased photos and written testimonials from illustrious peers such as Alice Cooper, Ginger (THE WILDHEARTS), Dregen (BACKYARD BABIES) and Jussi 69 (THE 69 EYES). CD 1 covers the years 1980-1985 and the first incarnation of HANOI ROCKS, tragically cut short by drummer Razzle's death. CD 2 brings the legend up-to-date with music from the reborn band from 2001 onwards.
