In the blessed year of 1970, a festival was held at the Isle Of Wight, to which around 600.000 people

attended.  You might call it a UK version of Woodstock if you like.  The bands that played were very

diverse, ranging from Jimi Hendrix, to The Doors, hell even Leonard Cohen and Joni Mitchell  

were there.

One of the bands that played on that festival was Irish band Taste, which featured the late Rory

Gallagher as frontmen.  I guess only people of my age, or slightly younger, might remember this great

Black Stone Cherry

What an ignorant fool I’ve been.  I never ever had listened to Black Stone Cherry before having to

review this DVD and upon the first notes I heard, I regretted having been so stupid to ignore this band


Now as to why I ignored them completely ?  I really don’t know.  Of course you don’t get to hear them

on the radio that often, if ever at all,  Yet they were already founded in 2001, and were on Roadrunner

Records until recently.  So far they’ve released four studio albums, with a new album ‘Kentucky’


Two years after their debut album Dead Memories (review posted 25/04/2010), Belgian “Melodic Hard Rock” band (who actually play songs alternating between Grunge and more baladesque leanings) Shellcase returns with its sophomore album. I daresay that frontman and main composer Dave Varlet has seen another bit of bad luck, this time with the loss of long-time drummer and soulmate Filip Vinck, whom is now replaced by one Jan Charlier.
