Collective Soul continues to Shine. Nearly 20 years after their first album release, the boys are still proving to be one of rock’s top acts. Ed and company just finished a blistering multi city tour with a fantastic Atlanta Georgia show on July 7th at the Tabernacle. First set was songs from “Dosage”, featuring “Tremble For My Love”, “Heavy”, “Run”, “Generate”, and more. Then a greatest hits type set after a break featuring “December”, “Precious Declaration”, “Gel”, eventually wrapping with “Shine”. Awesome! This band personifies rock and roll. Cool cats, laying down some power cords, with some great lyrics. They still have a few added dates. 7.27.12 @ Penticon, BC, 7.28.12 @ Richmond, BC, 8.10.12 @ Stevensville, ON, 8.11.12 @ Saskatoon, SK, 8.25.12 @ Columbia, SC, 8.28.12 @ Syracuse, NY. Check out this CS clip, backstage before show in Detroit.
Stephen Stills is on the road. Working the riffs and rhythms you know and love. Stephen has been out pushing his wares. His website is promoting the “Live At Shepherds Bush” CD/DVD. A really strong performance at a great venue outside London. And also released, a collection of 1968 demos called “Just Roll Tape.” Stephens career in music provides a great historical link to American culture of the late 60’s, and 70’s. It’s great to go back to Buffalo Springfield, CSNY, and get a flavor of the past. more…..
