    Rock And Roll is Not Dead: Queens of the Stone Age/Royal Blood Concert Review

    Queens of the Stone Age and Royal Blood rocked Columbus Tuesday night.
    Rock and Roll is alive and well.
    For everyone who says rock is dead, think again.
    Royal Blood started the show with a kick butt set.

    That’s all I have to say.

    3 Classics: Deep Purple/Alice Cooper/Edgar Winter Concert Review

    Another classic rock show in the Lucas book.
    I saw Deep Purple, Alice Cooper, and Edgar Winter on the final night of their triple bill summer tour.
    Edgar Winter started the proceedings with a solid dose of classic rock.
    He and his band were having a lot of fun, which I love to see.
    He not only sang, but played the keytar, saxophone, and some of his drummer’s drum kit.
    A very fun set.
    Then Alice Cooper came on and delivered another basically perfect show.
    I’ve seen him 6 times now and I swear he never has a bad night.
    He played a lot of hits, plus one song from his great new album Paranormal.
    At the end of his set, Edgar Winter and Deep Purple guitarist Steve Morse got onstage and jammed with Alice and his great band.
    Again, very fun.
    Then Deep Purple came on.
    It had been 16 years since I saw them.
    They’re still great.
    They played a lot of the classics, plus one song from their great new album Infinite and a song from their previous album, the great Now What?!
    Singer Ian Gillan, guitarist Steve Morse, bassist Roger Glover, drummer Ian Paice, and keyboardist Don Airey are all virtuosos at what they do.
    And after all these years, they’re still having fun, which is what it’s all about.
    A very fun show all around, and
    I’m glad I went.
    More shows to come.
    Stay tuned.
