Black Stone Cherry at Apollo 23/Rock Radio 96.3: Glasgow 26/05/11

Kentucky rockers Black Stone Cherry recently graced the shores of the UK to promote the latest album ‘Between the Devil & the Deep Blue Sea’. The band played secret acoustic shows courtesy of Rock Radio, I was lucky enough to catch them up at the Glasgow session, held at the Apollo 23.

Ben, Chris, Jon and John kicked off the night with ‘Blind Man’, a track from 2nd album Folklore & Superstition; a great track to lift the energy in the venue.  Followed by a new track ˜In My Blood’ (track 3 on the latest album),  now this track is looking to be a fan favourite off the album, it is catchy and has those signature Black Stone Cherry southern rock riffs!The track ‘Lonely Train’, from their first album, was performed with the near majority of the venue singing along with Chris. Despite shouts from the crowd to play tracks ‘Peace is Free’ and ‘Maybe Someday’, Black Stone Cherry ended their short set with the new single ‘White Trash Millionaire’.

The Kentucky boys spent the rest of their time meeting the fans and getting their pictures taken with them. Announcing that it had been too long since Black Stone Cherry had graced the UK shores the band stated the return and likelihood of a tour later in the fall so watch this space!!

About Del Preston

So there I am, in Sri Lanka, formerly Ceylon, at about 3 o'clock in the morning, looking for one thousand brown M&Ms to fill a brandy glass, or Ozzy wouldn't go on stage that night. So, Jeff Beck pops his head 'round the door, and mentions there's a little sweet shop on the edge of town. So - we go. And - it's closed. So there's me and Keith Moon and David Crosby, breaking into that little sweet shop, eh. Well, instead of a guard dog, they've got this bloody great big Bengal tiger. I managed to take out the tiger with a can of mace, but the shop owner and his son, that's a different story altogether. I had to beat them to death with their own shoes. Nasty business really. But sure enough, I got the M&Ms and Ozzy went on stage and did a great show.
