Music- Alice in Chains/Ghost/Walking Papers

Monday, 9 June 2014

One of my favourite evenings of 2013 was going to see this amazing show featuring three incredible bands. The first being the super group Walking Papers which featured drummer Barrett Martin from the Screaming trees and Mad Season to Duff Mckagan from Guns 'n' Roses, and their set featured great songs that were charismatically performed by front man Jeff Angell.
Next were Ghost who's debut album released in 2013 was met with a positive reception, even Rolling Stone calling one everyone needed to hear. Their gothic persona's took to the stage in a dramatic fashion and were amazing! They may not appear to be up your street but I was surprised at how good they were and especially how they could move a crowd.
Alice in Chains appeared on the stage and the haunting echo of Layne Staley's lyrics and memory filled the room. Playing more oldies than new material the band were incredible from the vocals that were reminiscent of Staley's but not an imitation, to Jerry Cantrell's guitar solos.
