The band itself is tight as ever, front man Chris Robertson has the vocals and the smooth guitar licks to entice, there is just something about Southern Hard Rock that no matter which way you spin it, this modern and meaty blues-based rock will never die and this band is proof of it. Is in their blood, is who they are.
If I were to write up this review for a Japanese website, there would be no need to do any history or back ground on Tomoyasu Hotei. With millions of record sales under his belt, famous does not explain his stature in his home country. Contrast that to what may well be the smallest show he has performed in years with just a few hundred present at The Lexington in London. You may ask why someone would leave all of that behind and his response is certainly a worth one. He says; In Japan, my career can only go down right now. In the UK, my career can only go up.”
