Reunited Los Angeles hard rockers BUCKCHERRY have uploaded their video for the track "Crazy Bitch" at this location. Directed by Ulf Buddensieck (NICKELBACK, BUSH, CHEVELLE, SWITCHFOOT), the video was shot at the Key Club and cast primarily through an open call on MySpace, resulting in a "wild, sexy video that harkens back to the raucous, no-holds-barred Sunset Strip scene at its height," according to a press release.
"It was pretty nuts," says director Buddensieck of the shoot. "Before each take some of the girls would ask me if it was okay for them to take off their clothes, again. What do you say to that when you're only shooting a close-up of the drum pedal?"
An explicit version of the clip will be available for download at a later date.
"Crazy Bitch" is the first video off the band's new album, "Fifteen", which entered the International charts in Japan at No. 7 and remains on the country's Top 20 album chart. The album will be released in Canada (Universal) and the U.S. in early 2006.
"Fifteen" was co-produced by the band's Keith Nelson with Mike Plotnikoff and Paul DeCarli, and features such soon-to-be anthems as "Next 2 You" and a pair of songs co-written by Marti Frederiksen (AEROSMITH, DEF LEPPARD), including the power ballad "Sorry".
Led by original members, vocalist Josh Todd and guitarist Keith Nelson, along with drummer Xavier Muriel, guitarist Steve D and bassist Jimmy Ashhurst, BUCKCHERRY will play month-long December residencies at several area clubs, including the Strip's famed Whisky-A-Go-Go on Tuesdays, Long Beach's Khoury's on Wednesdays, Cane's in San Diego on Thursdays, and the Malibu Inn on Fridays. In addition, the band will perform at the Canyon Club in Agoura Hills on Dec. 29 and The Viper Room for a special New Years Eve performance on Dec. 31. Support bands for all the shows will be announced soon.
