Twin lead guitar outfit
Balls of Steel came out on a bitterly cold night to play for the
Herd in Houghton Comrades on 12th December. Featuring ex-Venom guitar
player Jim Clare plus son Sam the band played through a selection
of classic rock favourites, kicking off with some Thin Lizzy and
including tracks from Gary Moore, ZZ Top, Free, Jimi Hendrix, Deep
Purple, Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Kinks & T Rex. The dancers were
up from early on and stayed on the floor for much of the night,
genuinely nice guys and a pleasure to work with.
Deep Purple in Rock
Featuring old friend Micky Kerrigan
on drums, you've got a pretty good idea what you're gonna get from
these guys. On their website they say: We are the UKs best classic
era Deep Purple tribute band, dedicated to accurately recreating
the music of Mark II and III Deep Purple. We may not look like the
members of Deep Purple, we sure as hell sound like them! The band
contains members of classic NWOBHM band "Blitzkrieg",
and former members of Maiden England (Iron Maiden tribute) and WhyeAyeZed
(Rush tribute). Watch them in action here
performing Perfect Strangers from the classic 'Burn' album filmed
in 'The Office' in Shields.
