Heart of Steel: Concert Reviews


L.A. Guns
February 28, 2003
Club Liquid Leominster, MA

Review by Paul Norton Photos by Carrie Ciccone

Around 100 fans showed up last night for the bands performance at Central Mass’s premiere club, Liquid.  The band came on around midnight and completely destroyed the club with some kick ass rock and roll.  They played an hour and a half set and seemed very excited to be playing for all of us again.  They were just here over the summer and it was amazing to see them again.  The show was even better than the last. 

It was a shock to not see Tracii there, but Brent Muscat (Faster Pussycat) and Keri Kelli lit up the place with their twin guitar attack of killer lead harmonies as well and some impressive solos.  Phil Lewis is one of the best front men for any band that I have seen live.  He interacts with the crowd very well, and his vocal performance was outstanding.  Hitting all the notes, and belting out the ballads. 

The band played mostly rockers, and got people up and banging their heads to their blend of LA Rock and Roll and Southern California 80s metal.  Everyone was ecstatic to see this band perform again, each song ended with a big roar from the crowd.  The guys got everyone singing along, and putting their fists in the air. 

Afterwards, the band stuck around to take plenty of pictures with their fans and sign autographs.  Phil is the nicest member of any band that I have ever had the pleasure of meeting.  Super friendly, and acts like one of the fans.  He hung around and talked with everyone, as did everyone else in the band.  And they were all willing to take as many pictures as they could with each of us.
