Velvet RevolverWednesday 19th March 2008.
In the afternoon, bassist Duff held a signing session at GuitarGuitar prior to an awesome gig at The Carling Academy. Having spent the last two years blasting STP and VR it was kinda surreal to see them walk on stage. Scott emerged sporting beard and shades and coated and scarfed up to the hilt. With each song, another layer was peeled off, as they performed a mix of tracks from both albums as well as tipping their hats to former glories by both GNR and STP. Hung about and met Slash and Matt Sorum by the tour bus afterwards. My third visit to The Academy following on from Bauhaus and Gary Numan and have to say it’s a helluva venue. VR rocked the house down. Excellent gig from a bunch of guys who are “Doing it for the Kids”, themselves and Rock n Roll … Lenny
