Yes, Atlanta Symphony Hall, Atlanta, Georgia

in Live Reviews by

From the summer of 1968 until present time the English rock band Yes has amazed music lovers of all ages with their symphonic rock sounds. Delivering a progressive rock masterpiece is still a walk in the park for the band and they show no signs of that changing anytime soon.   In the lobby of the Symphony Hall fans lined up at wine tables giddy with excitement. They exchanged stories about seeing the band live over the years and discussing the current line-up. One fan in particular stood out in the crowd. While most were wearing vintage Yes T-shirts or…

Eric Burdon and The Animals, City Winery, Nashville

in Live Reviews by

Sunday night wasn’t just a full moon, it was a super moon. And it wasn’t just any animal that was set free in Nashville; it was The Animal. He was more than a casual acquaintance to the most legendary musicians of the 60’s and 70’s, and he was well respected by them. Commanding and powerful, if Eric Burdon’s voice didn’t knock a hole in a wall, he could stare a hole through it with his intense gaze. The singer, songwriter, and cover song artist extraordinaire performed for a sold-out show at City Winery in Nashville, Tennessee Sunday night. Eric strolled onto the stage right…

Blues Traveler, Revelry Room, Chattanooga

in Live Reviews by

In a time of cookie-cutter, bland vanilla pop, Blues Traveler still marches to the beat of a different distorted harmonica. In the nearly 20 years I have been enjoying the music of these guys, they haven’t tried to reinvent themselves. Blues Traveler has done what many others haven’t. They are still here. As I watch John Popper throw his head back and sing lyrics as if he is offering prayers to the almighty to save his soul, I can’t help but feel part of his emotion. That connection to a band, a singer, or a musician is what you should…

INTERVIEW: Zombies

in Interviews by

What made you decide to come together and perform this album one last time? It was the completing of the circle. Odessey and Oracle was the culmination of all that we aspired to then; writing and producing the album ourselves. So, after all this time and after 50 years, it is pleasing that the album is getting the recognition that it didn’t get at the time – so why not celebrate it? I mentioned to Colin and Rod that the anniversary was coming up and the rest is history. Is this tour bittersweet? Will you miss performing these songs live…

Heart, Amphitheater, Nashville

in Live Reviews by

The fierce female force that is Heart continued their “The Rock Hall Three For All” tour with Cheap Trick and Joan Jett with a stop at Ascend Amphitheater in Nashville, Tennessee. Closing the house down on a sold out show, the duo was given a perpetual standing ovation by many in the crowd. Ann and Nancy Wilson started their musical journey over four decades ago. Still holding the reins of responsibility for helping start a revolution in rock music, the duo inspired women to pick up a guitar and thank goodness they did. Even though the sisters were never impressed…

The countdown had begun. It was an hour before the show started and the line around the arena was beginning to wrap around the building. Standing on the sidewalk outside the barrier was a street preacher with a megaphone pleading to the lost souls in line not to go into the area with the devil. As the doors to the arena opened he asserted, “I have been where you are! You are on the Highway to Hell!”, to which the crowd cheered with an overwhelming response and filed into the open doors of the temporary hell. Serving as the nexus…

The Secret City Festival 2016, Tennessee

in Festivals by

During World War II there was a secret so well-kept that many people still do not know about it. In 1942 the U.S. government chose the site of Oak Ridge, Tennessee to house a uranium producing plant that would be a staple in the Manhattan Project and help build the first atomic bomb. It was a dangerous attempt, and in order for it to work, the entire city would have to keep a secret. Thanks to the tight lips of the people in the city, the effort was a success. In honour of the dedication of the people of the…

The Zombies, Nashville

in Live Reviews by

It was a was a beautiful spring evening in Nashville, Tennessee and I was sitting on City Winery’s upper deck admiring the skyline and watching the valet line get longer. Everyone was headed inside with a common purpose; to see the hidden gem of the British Invasion, The Zombies, and singer-song writer Bruce Sudano. City Winery is a high end dining experience that combines diner, wine, and concerts. It is classy but laid back, and so much more intimate than a seated concert hall. I double checked my gear and headed down to my reserved table to wait for the…

INTERVIEW: Otis Williams

in Interviews by

Motown’s legendary Temptations will be kicking off their 2016 tour in America and will across the Atlantic to the UK in October. I had the chance to catch up with the last original member of the Temptations, Otis Williams, for a chat about his life and upcoming tour. You have really achieved so much in your life. Did you set out to conquer so much? OW: Not really. I just wanted to be successful but I didn’t expect so much success. I just really wanted to sing and dance. The Temptations will be touring the UK again the October 2016.…

Rob Zombie & Disturbed Live at Ascend Amphitheater Nashville

in Live Reviews by

When you think of Nashville, Tennessee you usually think of country music and cowboy boots. So when you are walking across the Tennessee River on a pedestrian bridge with a horde of Zombies that are so Disturbed they look like they could Pop Evil out of every orifice of their body, you start to wonder if a league of un-dead have been unleashed on the city. When I reach the other side of the bridge all the corpses file left and head the Ascend Amphitheater. I realize there is no immediate danger from the sea of doom that has settled…
