I even got a "Hot Blooded - Foreigner" vibe on the verses a little bit.

I liked this a lot. Great work!
Steve, Thanks for giving it a spin. Tom

The solo reminds me of Skinny Leonard. The chords in the verses reminded me a lot of Boston.

Really liked the riff based chorus.

Probably the best hard rock use of BB I recall hearing.

Nice work.

Guitars are perfect, as is the vocal. And the mix! Totally pro as usual.

Great song, better than most of the music I hear on my local rock radio station these days.
Dave, glad you liked it, Tom

Great driving rock beat. Plenty to like about this song.

As you responded to floyd...rock to blues to country. And you retain the goodness of them all.

Great write, vocal and signature TA production to top it all off.

J&B, thanks for the nice review. Tom

Hi Tom,

Nearly missed this one!

It's great to see more people rocking on the forum these days and rock doesn't
come much better than this.

Fabulous guitars, especially the solo.

Your vocals just get better and better - you've really got a great voice for this
type of track.

Classic Rock through and through.

ROG.

Great Rock tune! Big fun!

This sounds like a 70's classic.
Great groove.
