Seriously folks, if this is the future of rock ‘n’ roll, then finally we can all get excited again, because this sort of stuff I would listen to everyday without a problem. Within the first two songs of this album I could hear elements of bands like QUEEN, LED ZEPPELIN, BAD COMPANY and some more modern influences like MIKA, THE DARKNESS and THE KILLERS…
If you were like me, your head probably done several revolutions when Scott Weiland released his Christmas covers album, The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year, back in 2011. Not that it was a bad album, as Christmas albums go, it more than holds it’s own. But after a three year gap from “Happy” in Galoshes, his last proper studio album, a lot of people were left open mouthed. So when I heard a new studio album was imminent, I was afraid it might be a collection of Gregorian chant music or Avant-Garde Jazz. ThankfullyWeiland is back on familiar ground with Blaster, along with his band The Wildabouts.
This was the first day (of two) of the all new festival from Kilimanjaro Live and The O2 to be held at the O2 Arena in London. It was really the classic rock day of the two with Alice Cooper as the main headline act and his only UK appearance in 2016
