I was reading Joe Bonamassa’s forum the other day and was stunned by some comments written by Tony Conley who operates Rock Guitar Daily.
Tony has an advance copy of Black Country Communion’s debut CD, due to be released this coming September. Tony posted the following comments on JB’s forum:
“…every song on the record could be considered radio worthy
“…several songs fall under the category of instant classics
“…this record hit me in an extremely immediate and substantial way.”
“…this record is in a league with Led Zep’s debut, Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust, and Who’s Next in terms of sheer scope and dimension.”
“…I remember wishing that Entwistle and Moon could be in a band with Page and Plant. Well, now they can.”
Are you kidding me? Those are some strong, strong statements. Hard to believe, really. Comparisons to Led Zep I and Who’s Next…two absolute all time classic recordings? Really? I am really looking forward to hearing it.
Here is Tony’s review over on Rock Guitar Daily.
Here is Black Country’s Website which features a interesting video with comments from band members and a couple short clips from the new album.
Black Country is a new “Super Group” featuring Bassist/Vocalist Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Trapeze), Drummer Jason Bonham (Bonham, Led Zeppelin, Foreigner), Keyboardist Derek Sherinian (Dream Theater, Planet X) and Blues-Rock Guitarist/Vocalist Joe Bonamassa (Bloodline, Solo Artist).
