Chickenfoot/Black Stone Cherry Concert – Santa Barbara Bowl – June 9, 2012 (interview, video and pics)
A trip to the Santa Barbara Bowl for any concert is a true pleasure, as the ambience of the legendary venue always shines through, but when you drop Chickenfoot and Black Stone Cherry in the bowl to rock the place, the party vibe kicks in and doesn't stop. I had a chance to interview Chris Robertson of the always accessible Black Stone Cherry and get some great pics and video from the 'Different Devil' tour stop. Check it all out along with the setlists from both bands below.
Kentucky's own Black Stone Cherry rocked the bowl with their brand of modern southern rock, with tracks from their self-titled debut album, as well as others from 'Folklore and Superstition' and 'Between the Devil & the Deep Blue Sea.' Toss in a kick ass cover of Joe Walsh's 'Rocky Mountain Way,' and you had a set of hard rock that connected with the audience....those familiar with BSC, and those just being introduced to the band. Vocalist/Guitarist Chris Robertson, guitarist Ben Wells, bassist Jon Lawhon and drummer John Fred Young attack the stage and just don't let up. If you haven't checked out all of their albums, you need to do so because they have a wealth of great material.
Special thanks to Julie Lichtenstien and Jessie Lee Weiss
In the bonus, I met a new rock brother who has signed with my favorite NFL team, the Oakland Raiders. Fullback Owen Schmidt was sitting next to me, and he is a true Black Stone Cherry fan as well. Check him out in the third and forth clips below and here's a recent interview with him at www.raiders.com Good luck this season Owen! He was hanging with BSC after their set, because he wasn't sitting next to us during the Foot.
Here's more photos pre-show and of BSC from the pit:
Black Stone Cherry Setlist:
In My Blood
Let It Roll
Rocky Mountain Way (Joe Walsh cover)
White Trash Millionaire
Blame It On the Boom Boom
Chickenfoot hit the stage as the sun began to set, and kept things heated up as they rolled through tracks from their two albums. Chickenfoot came together as friends jamming, which translates to the stage with the friendly jabs and interaction between all of the guys. Even though drummer Kenny Aronoff is only filling in for Chad Smith as he fulfills his Red Hot Chili Pepper duties, he fits right in as the band doesn't miss a beat with his incredible drumming skills. It was the first time Chickenfoot has played Santa Barbara, and the first concert that Sammy Hagar and Michael Anthony have played in S.B. It was a great show by masterful musicians!
Chickenfoot Set List:
Sexy Little Thing
Soap on a Rope
My Kinda Girl
Down the Drain
Something Going Wrong
Future in the Past
