Buckcherry always draws in an interesting and dynamic crowd, and tonight was no different. Tattoos, colored hair and suicide girls filled this venue as Josh Todd walked out onto the stage with his bandmates. Josh Todd’s raspy and spectacular rock voice begin with their song Sunshine as he warmed up the crowd. Josh supported his signature style; long pants with a jacket and no shirt, later shedding the jacket to reveal his multiple tattoos for the second half of the show as per usual.

Buckcherry is one of the last remaining rock bands of this genre. They bring a level of passion that keep them on the doorstep of being a huge rock band. Remaining true to the sex drugs and rock ‘n’ roll mantra, Josh Todd flirted hard with the audience throughout the entire set. His raw sexuality set the tone for the finale which included Crazy Bitch, Lit, and Too Drunk…

His rendition of Sorry was heart felt, so much so Josh said it gave him chills. Men and women alike were singing along with this classic rock ballad, which reminded me of the first time I heard the song several years ago on a long solo drive from Albuquerque to San Diego. For me it was an instant classic and I still ponder the circumstances that inspired the words and melody.

Keith Nelson, Xavier Muriel and Stevie D crushed it as this hard charging band rocked the crowd. The guitar solos were outstanding as you would expect from a professionals like Buckcherry.

The only thing this experience was lacking more was time. I would have love to see an opening band lead off the concert and warm up the crowd first. Buckcherry is such a fun experience, they could’ve played for another two hours as far as I was concerned.

Maybe next time they grant us an interview so they can say a few words to their fans and the troops, the amazing men and women that love their style of rock.

So keep a fresh eye out for this hard charging band. These guys are just plain fun in the classic sex, drugs and Rock ‘n’ roll style. Check them out at Buckcherry.com and I’ll see you at the next concert.
