Rival Sons: Jay Buchanan Interview

Rival Sons

It’s going to be a busy year for Rival Sons – then again, what year isn’t? The Los Angeles-based rockers like to stay busy, both in the studio and on the road. They’ve hinted at a new album (their latest release was a tour edition of 2014’s Great Western Valkyrie, out last October), but the biggest news for 2016 is their opening slot on The End, Black Sabbath’s final world tour. Two weeks into the tour, singer Jay Buchanan called Blues Rock Review from the road to describe what it’s like to open for rock giants on a global scale.

Watch: Richie Kotzen “Live”

Richie Kotzen’s first ever professionally released DVD, Live, has been made available for viewing on YouTube in its entirety.

“I was thinking that there are so many fans around the world that simply don’t have access to or can’t afford to buy this content.  Not that I’m looking to give everything away, but I thought by making this available for people to watch on YouTube I was sort of giving back a bit to all the great people who have bought my music, concert tickets, and generally supported my pretty much ‘underground’ career over the last 20 years,” said Kotzen.

Simo: Let Love Show the Way Review

Let Love Show The Way

Let Love Show the Way is the newest album from Nashville trio and Joe Bonamassa-championed group Simo. “Stranger Blues” is the album’s introductory track that kicks off the lengthy LP with the sound of oscillating electronics before turning into a psychedelically tinged rock piece with a guitar line that easily recalls Ray Manzarek’s keyboard work with The Doors, specifically their track “Break on Through.”
