Friday To-Do: Buckcherry

Posted By on Fri, Oct 3, 2008 at 9:31 AM


Buckcherry's Josh Todd.

BUCKCHERRY
7 p.m., Clear Channel Metroplex, $25.

Some say Los Angeles rockers Buckcherry, originally called Sparrow, came up with their name by rearranging the first letters of Chuck Berry's name. Initially, however, the group said it was inspired by a drag queen acquaintance. In any event, the band released its self-titled debut in 1999 to high praise and certified gold status. After changes to its roster and some lawsuits, including one by a 16-year-old female who claimed she was coerced into dancing provocatively and topless during a show, the rejuvenated five-piece makes its way to town in support of its latest album, “15,” which contains wholesome sing-along numbers such as “Crazy Bitch.” Hard rockers Shinedown and Saving Abel open the all-ages show.
