Buckcherry is an American hard rock band from Los Angeles, California. Formed in 1995, his debut album, Buckcherry, was released in 1999 and his second, Time Bomb, was released in 2001. The band then disbanded in 2002.
In 2005, Josh Todd (singer) and Keith Nelson (guitarist) decided to reform a band using the name of their former band, Buckcherry. In April 2006, they released a new album, 15. Follow Black Butterfly in 2008 and All Night Long in 2010.
Buckcherry, whose name comes from a play of letters with the artist's name Chuck Berry, is formed when singer Josh Todd meets guitarist Keith Nelson via a common tattoo artist. They decide to make a band after discovering a passion in common, the music of the AC / DC training. The duo makes some demos before bassist Jonathan Brightman and drummer Devon Glenn join them. Buckcherry begins to perform on the Hollywood club scene. Their side "old school rock 'n' roll" allows them to receive a warm welcome from rock music fans.
Buckcherry signs with Dreamworks Records some time later. The band released their first eponymous album in 1999, which is well received by the critics and certified Gold in the United States. Three hits make the modern rock charts: Lit Up, Check Your Head and For the Movie.
