“The classic rock groove is common in the local band scene. Sometimes too common. More often than not, when I hear a band start playing a set of 70’s hits I cringe. I have heard 100’s of jacked up versions of Journey, bad impersonations of Boston and sad covers of Styx. Don’t even ask if I hear any good Zeppelin or god forbid, Queen. I’ve felt true sympathy for 46 year old singers trying to pull off Freddie Mercury vocals with scarred Marlboro Red vocal cords and whiskey breath. I’ve seen Zeppelin painfully covered (with much enthusiasm) so poorly it was laughable. The sounds of the 70’s are harder to pull of by a live local band than you’d think. Many studio effects and mixing went into those classics. If you cover Boston, you had better be really good, or you’ll look really pathetic. Enough classic rock band bashing. Let’s applaud the ones that kick ass. Like Midnight Special. Their story is cool. On their band bio page (midnightspeciallive.com) they explain.”
