Rock Me!! Great White/Riley’s LA Guns/Lost Hearts Concert Review

Wow what a fun time I had in Michigan.
Very cool place.
I was fortunate enough to be part of Riley’s LA Guns’ meet and greet, brought on a local radio show, before the concert.
I got to speak to all of the band, they signed my CD insert, and I got my picture taken with them.
They were all very kind and appreciative.
I told them how much I love the music they’re doing and I look forward to their new album.
The singer/co-guitarist Kurt Frohlich told me I will love it, which I have no doubt. He also gave me a guitar pick, which glows in the dark.
Lead guitarist Scott Griffin was very cool too.
Bassist Kelly Nickels was not here for some reason but the bassist they had was great and nice too.
Drummer Steve Riley (LA Guns, W.A.S.P., The B’ZZ, Keel, Steppenwolf) was super cool. I told him how much I love his drumming, especially on the W.A.S.P. album The Last Command. He was super appreciative.
All the guys were great and yes I know they are one of two LA Guns bands out there.
Classic singer Phil Lewis and guitarist/founder Tracii Guns do that one and are still making phenomenal albums.
Usually, I can’t stand when two bands are out there but in this case, I’m ok with it. Both are great and I’m allowed to like both.
Anyway, I’m being long winded here but again, I appreciate all the guys, the radio station 94.7 WCSX, and Smugglers for putting this on. You made my year.
Now to the actual concert.
Starting off was an up and coming band called Lost Hearts.
They are a very good four piece rock and roll band. They have a few singles out and are playing as many dates as they can, and I must say I’m impressed.
They played mostly originals but also played a cool KISS cover (Come On and Love Me).
I want albums from these guys and I wish them all the best in the future. Rock on guys!!
Then, Riley’s LA Guns took the stage and rocked the house, playing many of the band’s classics, some great songs from their last album Renegades, which I love, plus a song from their upcoming album.
Thank you guys for everything and for rocking and rolling like you do.
Then Great White ended the night with a great set of classic GW songs.
New singer Brett Carlisle (thanks for the friend request and for the fist bumps) is a great fit for this band.
Yes I still am a huge Jack Russell fan too and I support his band too (Jack Russell’s Great White who are phenomenal and great people too), but again, I love both bands and that should be ok. I also got a guitar pick from the great Mark Kendall!!
Thank you sir.
Nights like this is what I live for.
