Live review: Black Stone Cherry
Venue: Wembley Arena
Kentucky heroes bring their brand of southern rock to London.
Watching Black Stone Cherry perform is like taking a masterclass in how to roll a bunch of rock clichés into a credible band.
On paper, a group that sounds like Lynyrd Skynyrd meets Mötley Crüe meets Free shouldn’t work, but after watching them move from CR Best New Band hotshots (2007) to thrashing out a two-hour set as first-time headliners at Wembley Arena you come away feeling that they know exactly what they’re doing.
