Rival Sons – Wembley Arena

I’m utterly ashamed to say I’ve never heard of Rival Sons; a fantastic blues rock band who had my head jutting to every infectious groove.

Their sound reminded me of the best things about Led Zeppelin during their Presence and Physical Graffiti albums; yet they have a funky swagger that’s all their own.

Like those two amazing albums, the drums raise the bar and it was absolutely excellent to see some slide guitar riffing out like ‘In My Time Of Dying’.  Fantastic guitarist.

Great vocals that reminded me of Paul Rodgers from Free, perfect balance in the rhythm section and massive kudos to the keyboard organis for giving me a Deep Purple nostalgia trip.

Top notch old school rock.
