Press

“Some people close to singer and guitarist Lightnin’ Rod describe this artist and his music as a perfect mixture of Eric Clapton, Bob Seger and Muddy Waters. True or not, what is certainly evident is Rods music has been influenced by Howlin’ Wolf and Stevie Ray Vaughn, together with seventies British pop music but over all, his style is deeply rooted in black music. Lightnin’ Rod Wilson walks up and down his guitar neck showing an amazing technique and sound that will certainly convince the most reluctant experienced listeners, not only by his fine guitar skills but also by his convincing effective phrasing present along the whole cd. To round it up, The Thunderbolts really know what they are doing and display a cool compact sound, with a very professional amazing technique on a passionate honest performing. In short words, we are facing a totally convincing work, done with great taste and care. GREAT.”
