The only thing on was a band called that Taz Taylor Band, a trio of amazingly talented musicians who have been making music and touring for a very long time. Taz is a Walsall lad too.Making this show a homecoming of sorts.
Support came from some young lads called PORK. who had bought a sizeable portion of the audience along with them. They dress in a pretty sleazy rock n roll/sunset strip fashion and it's fair to say that their blues rock style reflects this somewhat. Good luck to em.
Back to Taz. This guy has performed with many people over the years, including various members of Deep Purple.His music is all instrumental. Instead of lyrics, the songs are basically just long stretches of guitar soloing stretched together. That may sound very pretentious, but unlike the famous guitarists, Steve Vai or Joe Satriani the band are rooted enough in classick rock and blues for it to not sound too self-indulgent. Some of the songs were quite emotional and beautiful. Yet overall I left with a sense that Taz Taylor is one of the worlds most underrated guitar heroes. But not much else.
