First off, apologies
for being a week late with the Rock Solid photos & review, the
reviewer/photographer/web gadgy demanded a weeks holiday or he was
going up to Hetton Social - so what could we do? Rock Solid DID
play at The Rock of the North on 19th September, and they DID take
the roof off. Long standing bassist Tony has left and his replacement
Joe, has had just 2 weeks to learn all the songs and learn when
to stand back when the pyros go off - yes, someone gave big Gary
the key to the fireworks box - again, Carto's eyebrows were still
a bit threadbare after the last episode. Playing their usual heavy
Rock assortment from the likes of Y&T Thin Lizzy, AC/DC, UFO,
Rush, Zeppelin, Deep Purple and Black Sabbath the Solids epitomise
the mantra of the Buffalos - Lights, Smoke & Rock'n'Roll. As
we'd have expected, there was an excellent turn out, the bar staff
were working their little socks off and the Herd were emptying their
glasses quicker than the girls could fill them. Great show, another
The third appearance for the Rising
since they reformed from the ashes of Riot, these guys have never
failed to impress with their outstanding vocals and superb musicianship.
Expect to hear tracks from Whitesnake, Thin Lizzy, Journey, Toto
and Thunder among others, the band have a dedicated following and
bring supporters from miles around when they play to the point where
I was relegated to the sidelines to watch them last time they were
on. Tremendous talent and a feast for the ears.
