Blackbird by Alter Bridge – cool live version

Blackbird is a great song on the latest Alter Bridge CD, and this is a really cool video of Myles playing an expanded solo.  The video doesn’t show the whole song, and Myles was sick so his voice wasn’t great, but the key here is the guitar solo.  If you are a fan of the song, then you’ll appreciate this longer variation.


New Alter Bridge Video

Alter Bridge has a new video for the first song off their new album, Blackbird.  The song is called Ties That Bind, and it rocks, as does the rest of the cd.  For those of you who are not familiar with Alter Bridge, I can’t recommend them highly enough.  The best rock band around today.  Oh yeah, and I was at the concert where they filmed this video, along with my brother and Brett.

I’m not able to embed the video, so check out the video using this link.

First single from new Alter Bridge album

Alter Bridge will be releasing their second album, “Blackbird”, on October 9, 2007. If you don’t know who Alter Bridge is, the band consists of three former members of Creed – Mark Tremonti, Brian Marshall, and Scott Phillips – along with Myles Kennedy on vocals. The first album was great, and I’m hoping for the best from the second. If the first song, “Rise Today”, is any indication then we are in for a treat. Take a listen to “Rise Today” below.
