KISS at Hell & Heaven Festival setlist

KISS headlined the Hell & Heaven Festival in Mexico City a couple of days ago. There was a couple of big surprices regarding the setlist. It's probably the most diverse setlist since Hot In The Shade or Revenge tours (not counting the KISS Kruises). They opened with Creatures of the Night, followed by Psycho Circus and War Machine. WTF?! That is awesome, that is the best concert opening in 15 years! And they sound pretty good too. Wish I could have been there. Let's hope they keep Creatures in the setlist in the future.

Creatures of the Night / Psycho Circus

Take a look at this setlist:

Creatures of the Night
Psycho Circus
War Machine
Plaster Caster
Tears Are Falling
Let Me Go Rock & Roll
Lick It Up
Calling Dr. Love
Hell or Hallelujah
I Love It Loud

Throwback Thursday - Avantasia videos

How about some Avantasia for Throwback Thursday?!
I was just looking through some of their stuff on Youtube and found some stuff that I had totally forgotten about, like the Klaus Meine track Dying For An Angel. And I have to say Tobias Sammet is one sharp dressed man. So, some pretty cool videos but most of all some damn good music!

The Driftwood Sign

The Driftwood Sign is a melodic rock band from Sweden who recently released a new single and video called "Disorder". The band focuses on riff-heavy rock with a strong melody focus.

After some research I found out that they opened up for Alter Bridge a couple of years ago. Their sound is in the same vein, and the singer actually sounds a bit like Myles Kennedy too as you can hear in the final video below!

More from Ryan Adams, this time with some covers...

Let's continue on the Ryan Adams theme, who has been very active lately to support his new album and appeared on a number of talk shows, clips and articles around the web.

Besides the album stuff, there is also two popular clips of Adams performing covers of "I want to know what love is" (Foreigner) and "Run to you" (Bryan Adams) out. The former one has even received praise from Mick Jones himself in a short response clip.

And for all of you metalheads and hardrockers out there, here he is again covering Iron Maiden.

Ryan Adams feat. Johnny Depp live in London

Came across these clips when I was browsing around Youtube, taken from Shepherds Bush in London on september 18th. The clips features Ryan Adams and his band with a very special guest in Johnny Depp. Depp played guitar on a couple of songs this night and the crowd went nuts. Adams and the band also sounds super good, especially on the perfect version of Kim. 



I Love You But I Don't Know What To Say
