Joe Bonamassa is back for his 13th album, Driving Towards The Daylight. The album was produced by Kevin Shirley and saw the dynamic duo return to Las Vegas for a back-to-basics album, which was recorded at the same studio as their first joint album, You & Me. Driving Towards The Daylight is definitely the bluesiest album from Bonamassa in the past few years. The album consists of four originals and seven covers. Kevin Shirley wanted to push Bonamassa out of his comfort zone and did so by bringing in a talented group of session players, including Aerosmith’s Brad Whitford.Driving Towards The Daylight is yet another fine performance from the blues rock titan. The album sees Joe return to the blues and in a big way. With this being Bonamassa’s 13th album, it may finally be the lucky one that sees Joe driving towards the Grammy.

These Southern Hard Rock legends are releasing “Regrinding The Axes”, where they revisit with the band’s unique flavor some of their favourite songs originally made famous by other iconic rock bands, covering well-known anthems from the repertoire of Thin Lizzy, Lynyrd Skynyrd, ZZ Top, Eagles and many more.Hatchet has always done a great job with covers. Their version of ‘Dreams I’ll Never See’ from their first album is a classic. They’ve been doing Mountain’s ‘Mississippi Queen’ live for decades.On “Regrinding The Axes”, however, it’s really surprising to hear the band doing songs from artists with a completely different root than Hatchet.Any classic rock fan is familiar with The Eagles’ “Deperado”. Molly Hatchet does a commendable job here with Phil McCormick giving an exceptional vocal performance.He also does a phenomenal job on the Stones “Wild Horses” and the Allman Brothers “Melissa”.

Lukas Nelson’s voice is almost his father’s — the high nasal tone, the vibrato, the emotion in the delivery. Willie Nelson is one of the most recognizable singers in the world, and it would be impossible for son Lucas to deny or circumvent the inevitable comparison. So he doesn’t, he just does his own thing. A seasoned tunesmith, Lukas is nowhere near as “country” as Willie, but retains a Texas roadhouse feel throughout his sophomore effort. Channeling Stevie Ray Vaughan’s Double Trouble, Lukas’s boys rock hard behind his smoking lead guitar work. While not as tasteful as Willie, the boy can make it scream. Overall, the album falters a bit on some fairly generic rock ‘n’ roll, but the lyrics are interesting in an introspective way. “I’m gonna smoke my joint all night, and feel alive.” Yep, that’s Willie’s boy.
