Steve Hunter is one of those musicians - in the wide and deep pantheon of rock music - who may not necessarily be known to the masses. Yet also to many other fans and musicians alike - and some of the names you may be familiar with – Hunter, also known as ‘The Deacon,” is very well-known and highly respected as a studio musician and live performer. He has recorded and toured with such artists as Alice Cooper, Peter Gabriel, Aerosmith, Lou Reed, Mick Jagger and Robert Fripp, to name some.

BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS – Venturing into Boston on a rainy yet warm Monday night, the anticipation to see progressive rock royalty was in the air as the crowd gathered along the narrow entranceway, leading to the iconic Orpheum Theatre and a date with the legendary King Crimson. The band is currently performing throughout North America on their tour dubbed “Radical Action.”

BOSTON - Hirsh Gardner is widely known (with good reason) as the thunderous drummer of the melodic-rocking, AOR band New England, who released three dynamic albums from 1978-1983, which included the Top 40-hit “Don’t Ever Wanna Lose Ya.” However, the scope of Gardner’s talents goes far beyond drumming. He is also a strong vocalist and song writer, a guitar player, and is also a renowned producer.

WORCESTER, MASSACHUSETTS – When you have waited for nearly 40 years to see one of your all-time favorite bands, the anticipation on “concert day” is sky high! However, such enthusiasm can also create the possibility of disappointment, for if you’ve been following a band for said 40 years, well, let’s just say it could create unrealistic expectation of the upcoming performance. In the words of my long time, concert-going friend, who was also seeing UFO for the first time... “Will the guys have anything left in the gas tank?”

SHIRLEY, MASSACHUSETTES – In the mid-80's, this fan had the opportunity to see ELP in concert. However, the line-up was Emerson, Lake & Powell, not the original drummer, Carl Palmer. (Cozy Powell was great! R.I.P.) Now, 30-plus years later, I recently had the opportunity to see Mr. Palmer fronting his own power trio, performing versions of the classic ELP catalog and dubbing the project “Carl Palmer's ELP Legacy Tour.”
