Yeah, they definitely have those modern production qualities that give them that "modern syndicated corporate rock radio" sound that I'm sick to death of. But Myles Kennedy is so good, I think that makes them stand out.
Mark Tremonti is also a fantastic guitar player.

Live, listen to them live.
Funny how they fill Wembley, then come home and tour 500-1000 person clubs.

Great band, my favorite "rock band" But yeah I can understand that sound some of you all notice.

Talented singer? Yes--in tune and has range. But something in its timbre is really off-putting to me.
He is very well known among the rock community for having a fantastic voice. Slash sought him out for his solo stuff. Even Led Zeppelin when they were thinking of making a comeback had him in mind for the tryouts.

It's just a style thing for me I guess. Axel Rose's voice is off-putting in same fashion. He's actually the guy I thought of when I first heard Myles.

I can't say the vocals are my favorite part of Zepplin either.

People clearly dig that "sound." It just doesn't jive with my biology.

Please don’t compare him to Axel Rose. I can’t stand Axel. :)

Please understand that when you recommend a new band, there are plenty of people who only enjoy music that's familiar. They're just not inclined to like anything that hasn't been on constant classic rock radio rotation for a few decades.

Yes, he is. They are a damn good band. But I can see how some people's ears are "fatigued" by a certain "aesthetic" that seems to be so ubiquitous today.

Well if you don't dig Blackbird, then I guess you really don't like them. The song Blackbird is considered one of their best. It is probably one of the best songs I have ever heard.

Glad to hear that. :) He has been with DW since 2009. Yes he was with Premier before that. The more I watch him, the more I respect his drumming.

I'm sure the players are all top notch players. I just don't like the music that they put together as a group. Alrighty, everyone have a great day!
Nothing wrong with that buddy. Have a great day.
