Michael Monroe Says Hanoi Rocks Has Been 'Put To Bed'

(Classic Rock) Michael Monroe hasn't spoken to Hanoi Rocks bandmate Andy McCoy since the band's last show in 2008 and insists he doesn't have any reason to pick up the phone.

The vocalist is riding high with his solo outfit's latest album Horns And Halos, released after he endured pressure to repeat the success of its forerunner Sensory Overdrive.

But veteran performer Monroe is looking firmly at the future, and doesn't intend to look back at his first big band, which was "reborn" with guitarist McCoy in 2001.

He says: "Hanoi Rocks is finished. The rebirth felt right at the time and I'm glad we did it. I got to see what I could accomplish working with Andy as an equal partner, because he'd had a different attitude about me writing.

"We made three good albums, but it ran its course. It wasn't fun any more so we put it to bed." more on this story
