I was at the Blender Theater at Gramercy in New York on Tuesday night, where Duff McKagan who many of you know from Guns n’ Roses and the youngsters from Velvet Revolver gave an amazing performance with his new band “Loaded”.
Duff was really loaded with surprises and a very entertaining night along with his band members Geoff Reading in drums Jeff Rouse bass and Mike Squires in lead guitar and the surprise of the night Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal (currently in lead guitar of the new Guns n Roses). I loved the medley where we got to listen from IGGY POP, JOURNEY, ZZ TOP, JUDAS PRIEST , AC/DC and more…
“Loaded” took me back to my childhood with some songs such as So Fine, It’s so easy, Dust ‘n’ Bones.My favorite song from their recently released album “Sick” is IOU and I got to listen to it live! The two things that impressed me the most were 1) The amazing vocals including moments of acapella 2) Finally an artist that doesn’t do the encore and goes on and on!
After the show I had the pleasure to meet the band and all guys where really cool sharing their passion for music and I got to talk with Duff about the times he had visited Greece and how much he enjoys the concerts there.
The new album “sick” definitely deserves attention as it’s a breath of fresh air and a variety of interesting tunes.
They might visit Greece this summer so keep your eyes and ears open and don’t miss it!
Many thanks to the band and my friend Mk!
