Re: Black Country Communion Reunion Confirmed
I enjoyed the BCC albums/DVD and I really enjoyed them live, but I have to say that it never seemed to be 100% committed hard rock. A lot of the material could quite easily have been included in Joe's solo sets. The fact that SOY is touted so much indicates that.
I think Joe was too much like Joe on the albums. I would love him to go with a whole new tonal approach and really 'dirty up' his work. His clean tones are just a little lightweight.
On one occasion, I saw BCC with Michael Schenker as support and even though Schenker was just coming back after his 'troubles', he is the supreme melodic hard rock guitar player. I assume Shirley will produce, so my advice to him would be to listen to Strangers in the Night and MSG at Budokan until his ears bleed !!!
