California Breed Live At The Whiskey A Gogo, Los Angeles, May 28, 2014

California Breed Glenn Hughes Los Angeles May 2014I just got back from an awesome first gig with California Breed, happily just up the road (in LA terms…) from where I live. Extremely impressive, smiles all around, at a packed Whiskey A Go Go. The show was extremely energetic. It truly was a great night – and such a relief to hear a guitar player that totally relied on feel or intuition, instead of the overtly technical, sterile and totally pointless widdly widdly four-finger exercises you hear from some other (no names!) bands.
The closing Zep and Purple covers felt a bit unnecessary, but What Is And What Should Never Be and Medusa provided some welcome change in texture and approach, pointing out a future, more diverse direction for this extremely promising, energetic and honest band.
Set list:
The Grey / Chemical Rain / Sweet Tea / Invisible
Scars / Solo – All Falls Down / What is and What Should Never Be (Led Zeppelin cover) / Strong / Spit You Out / Breathe / Medusa (Trapeze cover) / Days They Come / The Way / Midnight Oil. Encores: Immigrant Song (Led Zeppelin cover) / Burn (Deep Purple cover)

    If they are going to do relevent covers then why Led Zep? Surely more apt would be one from Bonham’s excellent solo debut “The Disregard of Timekeeping”??

    BURN is ALWAYS welcome. Can’t wait see to see them live. So hurry up please!
