Go and listen and see Vintage Trouble live. Unique. There are no other words to define the new discovery of Doc McGhee (Bon Jovi, Motley Crue, KISS, Guns N' Roses and James Brown), coming to Milan on 5 December on the Salumeria della Musica stage. Thanks to line-ups like these, the future of rock is in good hands.
Straight from the hotbed of artistic talent that is Los Angeles comes what could turn out to be a real next big thing.
Their name is Vintage Trouble and - although making their debut under this moniker - they are a veteran band that has been delivering adrenalin rushes up and down the west coast of the USA for years. Their electric sound borrows elements from soul, r&b and the more adrenaline-fuelled rock'n'roll, redefining a vintage yet contemporary attitude. Ty Taylor (vocals), Nalle Colt (guitar), Rick Barrio Dill (bass) and Richard Danielson (drums) are the four faces of this little artistic revolution.
Already a black vocalist fronting Dakota Moon - who recorded in the late 1990s for Elektra, after a series of appearances as Tina Turner's opening act - Taylor defines Vintage Trouble's music as primitive soul, already clearing the field of any misunderstandings: in other words, the poetry of black music in the service of free-range arrangements. The passion for late 1950s soul/rhythm & blues combined with the drive of 1960s rock 'n' roll.
Vintage Trouble are a band that literally explodes on stage, and their attitude is to constantly engage the audience. More than a performance, theirs is intended as a multi-coloured party. The band's ultimate goal is to bring the sweat down from the walls of the hall and watch the fully dressed people leave the club with their clothes at least wrinkled.
From the opener single 'Nancy Lee' to the sassy rhythm of 'Blues Hand Me Down' to the provocations of 'Not Alright By Me' and the soulful 'Nobody Told Me', there is everything there to pull off the perfect crime, thanks to overbearing melodies, rough guitars and lyrics that seem truly timeless. The band will soon be touring Europe as backing act to fm rockers Bon Jovi, another chance to shock new and ecstatic audiences.
