What’s immediately recognizable with the new album is an extra portion of heaviness that’s added to this album. Not that Sunstorm turned into a harsh metal outlet, but guitars, done by DGM guitarist Simone Mularoni, got more space.
Well worth the wait and credit must be given to local promoter SD Entertainment for securing an artist of his caliber to make his debut appearance, in N.ireland. Several minor gripes aside from punters regarding the length of the set but to me personally it represented a finely tuned and well delivered combination of quality music and personal anecdotes-exactly what was promised. Joe himself lived up to all his star quality but with a genuine caring and personal side. The seed has now been planted for his return with an electric band to fill in the gaps in his back catalogue with more rock anthems to play live. The demand and interest is certainly there with the N.Ireland rock audience. Over to you promoter….
Richie was standing by my side and he wanted to finish the second album that we had started. We already had some great tracks of which they used three of them on “The Battle Rages On”They are great tracks but I think that the messages were not so good in my opinion. That’s just my opinion but what really happened was very aware to me. I got frustrated with the whole thing and I quit before I was fired so to speak. I wasn’t really fired I was “let go “because Richie wanted to still hang onto me but the rest was a business deal
JLT: I think that after being bombarded with so many artists that do not stand the test of time or are not really good singers/musicians that people are finally starting to realize that there is no substitute for authentic, REAL music. Everything goes in cycles.
