9/23: UFO, SAXON, JARED JAMES NICHOLS, ZAPPA, THE DARKNESS, MORE
Caught UFO, Saxon & Jared James Nichols last night on their first date of the latest leg of their tour together. Didn’t get there early enough to see JJN, but I have seen him in the past and he is an artist to watch for sure. Ballsy blues based hard rock. New album coming. Saxon played a set that featured some different tracks than usual which was nice to hear. Biff and the boys in fine form, and have a major metal tour they will be on next year.. Many know UFO are one of my all time favorite bands. They simply never dissapoint, and didn’t last night. Phil Mogg in particular was in great voice. At 69 he still sounds amazing. Has to be one of rocks most underrated singers and writers. See this great package on tour here in the US the next month. Truly great bill and all 3 acts really really killer.
