Track of the Week: “What’s Goin’ Down” by The Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band
November 2, 2011 1 Comment
I absolutely love the intro riff here. It infuses a healthy dose of Hendrix-style riffage with more of a hard rock edge. I love the guitar tone. And don’t get me started on solos. They’re awesome!
If only Noah Hunt, the singer, didn’t sound like he just walked off the set of a beer commercial. He has the phoniest blues voice I’ve ever heard. He’s like the blues version of Neil Diamond. He’s Mayor McCheese to max. He sucks.
But anyway, yeah, Kenny is good. Real good.
