Blackfoot: Live In Kentucky; Full 77 Min Feature
Formed in 1969 by Bassist Greg T. Walker "Blackfoot's" music has been entertaining fans for some 40 years and it's earned them the title of "The Boys of Southern Metal" for a reason. For fans not familiar with they're distinctive southern metal sound it's a smooth blend of southern twang and hard rock and it has definitely inspired many other bands who have followed in their footsteps. The bands eternal footprint in southern metal rock has been firmly planted and they are definitely the stuff that rock legends are made of.
This concert film of Blackfoot showcases the band in front of an enthusiastic crowd at the Mountain Arts Center in Prestonsburg Kentucky in 2007 and the band definitely gives the fans their monies worth. Sadly the original drummer Jakson Spires passed away on March 16/ 2005 and the band would no longer be the same. Fortunately Michael Sollars from New Orleans joined the band and he is behind the drum kit for this show. Michael Sollars does a great job on the drums but Jakson Spires is definitely missed on this magic night of music and memories in Kentucky.
On a final note some fans may be disappointed to learn that original lead singer Ricky Medlocke did not rejoin the band and the present lead singer is Bobby Barth.
