Icon34 Hard Rock Hell - Living Colour & more reviewed

Although the main reason for attending was because Glenn was going to be there, we still went along as first timers to this mini indoor festival.

I have to say that Living Colour were really poor. I'm not saying that cos i'm bitter over what happened with Glenn. Although still a great singer, they didn't seem that interested, the guitar was way too widdly shredding, Type was played as a speed metal version and ruined. Only Cult of Personality was any good. And they started 15 minutes late but finished on their allotted time, so 45 minutes rather than an hour.

Highlights of the weekend were Bernie Marsden, guitarist of the weekend by a mile and with Neil Murray as his bass player too Graham Bonnet, The Treatment, Broken Witt Rebels and Aussie band Cherry Grind.

Bonnet gave us a best of Rainbow, MSG and Alcatrazz set which obviously went down a storm.

The Treatment are a great up and coming band worth going to see but for me the big discovery were Broken Witt Rebels.

BWR's singer has such a brilliant voice, the band can all play and they've some great songs too. They are playing at Planet RockStock next month and have landed the support slots for both King King and Joanne Shaw Taylor in early 2017 so should start picking up a decent following. I bought all three EP's and Georgia Pine is the one I recommend the most. Check them out... www.brokenwittrebels.com

I too went to HRH purely for Glenn and Living Colour... as Wolfy states LC were a huge disappointment and perhaps a good job Glenn didn't play the tour with them.

Highlight was Bernie Marsden who showed all young 6 string gun slingers how to play... and Praying Mantis from Thursday night.

Great to meet Mr Smith after all these years... we last met in North Berwick in 2008!

You can't go wrong with this guy. Bernie is superb, both as a musician and a human being. Unfortunately he hasn't played in my neck of woods for quite some time.

Here he is, with Lulu (!) at "An Evening for Jack (Bruce)" in London this October.
