No Sophomore Slump Here!

Many bands suffer from a sophomore slump, a brilliant debut and a second album that just doesn't measure up. Of course there are always exceptions, Led Zeppelin, for example. Black Country Communion, also falls into the latter category. BCC is comprised of Glenn Hughes, legendary English bassist and singer, as well as American guitarist Joe Bonamassa, American keyboardist Derek Sherinian (formerly of Dream Theater, and founder of Planet X)and Jason Bonham (son of Led Zeppelin's John Bonham).…

A slightly delayed review of Jason Bonham's Led Zeppelin Experience

When I first heard that Jason Bonham’s Led-Zeppelin Experience was coming to town (The Warfield Theater, San Francisco, CA) I immediately looked up who the musicians were, I couldn’t find any information on any of them. I was finally able to find a few ‘official’ You Tube videos of the band performing live.
