Heaven & Earth "Hard to kill"


Maybe it's been discussed elsewhere, anyway good old Stuart Smith is back with an extremely fun and purple sounding album called "Hard to kill". Kenny Aaronson on drums and this guy Joe Retta on vocals, probably the best voice for this kind of classic hard rock: think Kelly Hansen, Steve Lee, etc.
To me, there's no doubt, these are the kind of guys that Ritchie should have called to have a credible band.
Highly recommended.

Indeed a great line-up
Personally I think Dig was better.

I just watched NO MONEY, NO LOVE video from the DIG album and amazed by the Ritchiesques guitar tone and the Hammond sound. Retta even looks like Ritchie in the video.

If you haven't heard Dig, check out Victorious, it's even more Rainbow-esque !! Excellent track !

Only listened to Hard to Kill once at the moment, so more on that one later !

Very good album! Maybe a little less epic and a little more fun compared to Dig.

I've definitely enjoyed some of their stuff and Retta really has a great voice.

I'd put him with Russell Allen and Jorn of the more 'modern' guys out there now.
