Wishbone Ash - "We Stand As One" (video)

Το 2019 οι Wishbone Ash συμπλήρωσαν 50 χρόνια "ζωής". Φέτος συμπληρώνουν 50 χρόνια δισκογραφίας (το ομώνυμο ντεμπούτο τους κυκλοφόρησε τον Δεκέμβριο του 1970) και το γιορτάζουν με τον 25ο στουντιακό τους δίσκο. Η δισκογραφική επιστροφή των Wishbone Ash τιτλοφορείται "Coat Of Arms" κι αναμένεται στα τέλη του επόμενου μήνα. Υπενθυμίζουμε ότι το μόνο από τα αρχικά μέλη που παραμένει στην μπάντα είναι ο Andy Powell...

Andy Powell: «My thought process was double-edged. On the one hand, a band like Wishbone is such a well entrenched outfit, with a history spanning 50 years now, I thought in a light-hearted way, that by now we we'd earned our own coat of arms, with heraldic references to aspects of our past and band mythology.

I'm sure that you'll quickly get the visual references if you are a fan of the band. But on a more serious note, this epic album title song, references the fact that the old guard, in the political arena, needs to step aside and let some fresh ideas come to the fore.

There's nothing good being brought to the table, it seems at present, and this song speaks to that. However, musically, it's a twin lead guitar work-out that'll hopefully bring a smile to your faces.»

Bio: «Formed in 1969, Wishbone Ash has more than 20 original studio recordings and several live albums to their credit. The group has appeared at all the major music festivals and enjoys a history with some of the world’s classic music labels, Universal and Atlantic Records.

Back in the day, Wishbone Ash cut their teeth on the US stadium circuit first opening for The Who. Once they began headlining in the States, Wishbone’s opening acts included Springsteen, Kiss and Aerosmith.

Citing Wishbone Ash as an influence on their style, Thin Lizzy, Iron Maiden, Southern Rock outfits like Lynyrd Skynyrd and, more recently, heavyweights like Opeth and some of the guitar - based Indie / Alternative bands, have all taken a little something from the legendary twin-guitar approach of Wishbone Ash.

Truly, there is no other rock band on the planet that has done more with the twin guitar concept than the Ash.»

  1. Ωραίο κομμάτι. Η αλήθεια είναι ότι δεν έχω ασχοληθεί ιδιαίτερα με τη δισκογραφία τους εκτός από το κλασικό Argus. Ίσως πρέπει να το κάνω κάποια στιγμή.
