New video for 'Shut Up (You Know I Love You).

From Frontiers:
Guitarist Tracii Guns (L.A. Guns) and bassist/vocalist Todd Kerns (Slash, Toque, Heroes And Monsters) have joined forces in a new rock 'n roll side project, Blackbird Angels. Adam Hamilton, a multi-instrumentalist who spent time in L.A. Guns and has also produced albums by L.A. Guns, Vains Of Jenna, George Lynch, and more, rounds out the line-up on drums. Their self-titled debut album sees some old friends getting together and simply having fun playing some good 'ol rock 'n roll like their heroes from the '70s did.

The seeds of Blackbird Angels were planted when Tracii decided he wanted to write a rock n' roll record more directly influenced by the music he grew up worshipping as a teenager, i.e. Led Zeppelin, Peter Frampton, Bad Company, late '70s Journey, and the like. He and Todd Kerns were already friends and Tracii felt Todd's voice and bass playing would match perfectly with his vision. The two chatted and concluded they could make a killer rock 'n roll record together. And that's exactly what they've done with the self-titled debut album from Blackbird Angels!

Tracii Guns is a respected guitarist who first came to prominence with the band he founded in Los Angeles in the early '80s, L.A. Guns. L.A. Guns would go on to be one of the marquee bands of '80s hard rock and had multiple hit records and singles, including 'The Ballad Of Jayne'. Guns has also had different forays with other groups outside of L.A. Guns, including Brides Of Destruction with Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx, Contraband with Michael Schenker, and, more recently, Sunbomb with Stryper guitarist/vocalist Michael Sweet. Guns reunited with vocalist Phil Lewis in 2016 under the L.A. Guns name and the band has been releasing new albums, three in total thus far, and touring regularly since.

Todd Kerns is a multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, and producer. He is most noted for being the bass player and backup singer in Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators, and for being the frontman of gold-record-selling Canadian band The Age Of Electric. In more recent years, he has been making his mark as a singer-songwriter with sold out solo performances as well as fronting former KISS guitarist Bruce Kulick’s band as well as his own Canadian supergroup, Toque. And most recently, Todd joined forces with guitarist Stef Burns and drummer Will Hunt in the power trio Heroes And Monsters.

This tune is better than anything off the most recent LA Guns release "Black Diamonds" . Might pick this up if I hear another good song or two...

    • Imagine a world where Andrew Wood didn’t die and Mother Love Bone was still creating awesome music!
    • “My Icarian Flight” featuring the one and only ADV 😜  
    • lol, this was my thought process too. What about Confess?! I like both bands, but not at the expense of one of them. 
    • I do have to give him credit for sounding exactly the same as he did in 1989...
