In all my 21 and half years of life of being a hard music lover and dappling with music appreciation I haven’t seen an unforeseen upcoming talent that is the Motley Misfit. His real name is London Mckuffey. I am pleased to write a nice review of this brilliant, young, youthful musician.
I have subscribed to his Youtube channel months ago and have over the months viewed his countless covers and his demos. He is an incredible musician with professionalism while he is having 100 percent fun. THAT is what rock and roll is all about. I really enjoy how he is so in depth with solos and harmonies of parts of songs with that cover song. Made me have one of those “Fuck Yeah, faith in humanity is restored” moments.
His tutorials on teaching a younger or older audience on how to play the guitar is very thorough. Even I got the full picture when watching all his tutorials. I have severe learning disabilities and to have watched his tutorials with full understanding and to know what to do in a certain song on a guitar is very amazing and heartwarming to me. Something with his tutorials clicked with me. That says something. I have been taught music for 8 years with Choir and Band. All of my music teachers could not teach me how to read music properly and I was not getting the material that was being taught to me(I was taught in the wrong way/ London taught me the right way). I would read tons of literature and scour the internet for tutorials. I gave up on music for a year until I created my own music appreciation/ jam club(Maniac Modern Music Club if your wondering) at my local high school I graduated from. I knew their was hope out their. Their are major band acts that have given me that. But London is the first person that is unsigned that has given me reason to stick to learning the musical outlets and study to become a pure rock and roll journalist along with Black Veil Brides help with this future huge goal of mine. London is going some where awesome in life. I only hope he get his big call sometime soon. All musicians deserve a big break. He gives me hope and faith. I give him props for having the slow down feature on the tutorials he does cause THAT is what nails a musician with high appraisals cause their are sloth learners like myself that is at times “Slow In The Head” which I take pride in. I have watched some big metal and rock and roll guitarists with their tutorials and they do their fast. Which irritates me to no end. Some of them are amazingly well done like London’s. London you won me as a forever fan and supporter of your future music. Thank you for being so fluent with your craft at such a young age. Very awesome to see young people like London expressing themselves in a true light and being who they are.
I only wish everyone follows this dudes ever step of the way. He has my full 100 percent full support and love to back him all the way. Its people like him that give me a fresh breath of air to to breathe at night knowing this world is not at least that fucked up with the BS going on.
I wish him well in his musical endeavors as well as anyone who are in London’s shoes. It is not easy being an unsigned musician. Getting out there and showing your blood, sweat, tears, heart, and the magic it takes to make a great musician and music. Plus the added on touring, recording albums, press, etc. That comes with the nature of being a musician but it is not easy getting out their. It takes dedications and determination to get to those amazing results. I know London has those impending values about him. I know one day he is going to rule the world with Black Veil Brides. 😉
Hell one of these days I hope to see him live with those five amazing BVB dudes. London is one of thee greatest up and coming rock and roll guitarist out their. I have high hopes for this dude and anyone who wants to set down the same path that London wants to achieve. I only hope it all does come true. Because London is one truly talented kid in my eyes.
Never lose sight of your dreams and go forth and achieve them. As Black Veil Brides always say it best “Never Give In, Never Back Down.”
Go London. I wish you the best and continue to do so. You receive a 300 percentage positive review in my eyes. Best of wishes. You are one kick ass rock and roll guitarist. Keep it up. Kick some ass London and have some potatoes while you are at it. \m/
