It is that time of year again, Dan Patlansky’s guitar weekend down in Clarens. This episode went out on Rebel rock Radio on 2 March 2023 at 19h00. It was a bit messy, but messy is good, let me know if you disagree. We kicked off with Fokofpolisiekar and their classic rock anthem, ‘Hemel Op Die Platteland, and followed up in quick succession with Airbourne, Grand Funk Railroad, and Mötley Crüe. We heard from the ladies pretty early in the show, two stellar guitarists Sophie Lloyd and Laura Cox showing the way. From there we checked out some Queen of Queen II and the opening tracks of My Chemical Romances masterpiece The Black Parade.
We broke radio rules and played Nickelback with no problem at all, I love Nickelback, I think Chad Kroeger is a phenomenal songwriter and has a golden voice. I think the hate is coming from people piling on because others don’t like them. Be your own person and admit that there is nothing wrong with Nickelback . We had a bit of metal with some Mastodon and some Megadeth, and then we checked out In This Moment doing a cover of Debbie Harry’s classic ‘Call Me’. Yes I know Blondie is a band, nice try guys.
