So, 27 years have passed since the last China Sky album in 1988. A lot has changed in that time: hipsters have regrettably come into existence, the confusingly named MTV has inexplicably ceased playing music videos and Ozzy has tried his hand at acting. Also, I was conceived and am now writing this very review.
27 years is a very long time in rock and roll.
With a career which started in 1981, with the Heavy Metal band Crossbones, and subsequent work with such musical giants like Tony Martin (Black Sabbath), Graham Bonnet (Rainbow, MSG), Don Airey (Rainbow, Ozzy, Deep Purple) and several others, Dario Mollo has worked with some of the greatest names in rock. The Voodoo Hill albums with Glenn Hughes have always marked a special milestone in Dario career and the latest helps cement his reputation further.
One one of the truly guitar gods of rock has broken through and pull his stuff together. Schenker and everybody’s performance was recorded with grace and implosion on this memorable night commemorating the band’s 30th anniversary.
