Stone Temple Pilots and Gary Moore

.
Stone Temple Pilots
Alive in the Windy City

Eagle Vision

The troubles endured by Stone Temple Pilots and their lead singer Scott Weiland are well known but when everything is copacetic they can rock out with the best of them and such is the case for this show, shot at the Riviera Theatre in Chicago back in 2010. A squall of guitar feedback leads into the set opener, the familiar and crowd-pleasing "Vasoline" before Weiland breaks out his megaphone to use for a vocal effect on "Crackerman." "Bagman," "Huckleberry Crumble" and "Hickory Dichotomy" from the new at the time Stone Temple Pilots album are performed but otherwise the set list is made up of favorites from the past and the show hits its high point about half way through when the band reels off four biggies in a row; "Sour Girl," "Creep," "Plush" and "Interstate Love Song." Other than Weiland's constant dancing and prancing there is not much of a stage show; STP let's the music do the talking and fans will definitely like what it says.

Gary Moore
Blues for Jimi

Eagle Vision

Not many artists can get away with covering Jimi Hendrix for one song let alone a whole set but here late guitar wizard Gary Moore puts on a fine show featuring a dozen of Jimi's most well-known songs. Moore doesn't take any liberties with the arrangements as he romps through "Purple Haze," "Manic Depression," "Foxey Lady" and the quiet "The Wind Cries Mary;" he honors Hendrix by playing the songs the way fans know and love them. Moore's playing is impressive throughout but the speedy instrumental "My Angel" offers him a chance to really turn it loose and you can almost see sparks fly as his fingers race across the fret board. Original Hendrix sidemen Billy Cox and the now deceased Mitch Mitchell join Gary for takes on "Red House," "Hey Joe," perennial favorite "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)" and "Stone Free," which Cox sings.
