Report from our very own NGG rock chic “Gwendoline”
Hey where were you Saturday night?...The Greyhound was the place to be. Decent sized pub, good beer and the venue for a night of passion with the band “STONE”. Stone by name but definitely not cold. Hot rock!, solid rock!, they breezed through cover versions played with enthusiasm and energy including “Paranoid”, “War Pigs”, “Sin City” and many, many more to the delight of the assembled crowd. The gig was buzzing and this chic was rockin’. These four everyday guys performed together for a night of magic and rawness the sight & sound still trembling in my bones.
Animal Andy on drums, laid back Lol on bass, new vocalist Justin with a strong gutsy voice and Johnny Boy on lead guitar, this guy makes it bleed pure sweat and tears. First set to warm you up is foreplay of an experience in love, just to get you in a relaxed mood, chill out then your ready for action! Heart racing, pulse throbbing, head spinning and sheer excitement trickling through your veins.
We’re begging for more with every song and we’re not disappointed. You want to let your hair down, no matter what your age, you know that feeling, no inhibitions, well come and hear “STONE” and feel alive. Remember you only live once, let go and play your air guitar, gyrate, feel and hear great rock music from the past to the present, these guys are definitely the band to see. I was a truly satisfied chic. Never mind “I feel it in my fingers, I feel it in my toes”.. Huh!! , I felt it every goddamn way but loose..ha! ha!
As Billy said with “Rebel Yell” we just wanted more, more, more. Oh yes please we weren’t “Pretty Vacant”, we were well and truly stuffed with pleasure, soaked to the skin in sweat and gratitude for a fantastic night out. Thankx boys, loved ya!, can’t wait till the next time.
