The STUK staff have just returned from a truly great show show in Camden, London by 'Union', who feature Bruce Kulick (Ex-Kiss), John Corabi (Ex-Motley Cue), Fred Corey (Cinderella) and the one and only king of sideburns, Mr Chuck Garric.
Why are we posting this here? Well, as there seems to be no Alice news to report at the moment Jaded decided we would turn into the Garric news for the day!!
First things first, rest assured sideburns are still on show and according to Mr Garric they won't be disapearing any time soon!
The show itself was extremely good. A mix of Union originals and Kiss/Cinderella/(Crue/Scream?) tracks (unfortunatly no Alice songs even though the crowd was screaming for one.. we hoped for 'Jesse Jane'!) with Chuck taking lead vocal on 'War Machine', 'I Love It Loud' and 'Unholy', a revelation after only having seen him do a few backing vocals with Alice before (Jaded says 'He sounded spectacular'). Note: Chucks setlist had a cute little "Alice Eyes" hand-sketched on it!
Afterwards the band came out and signed/chatted with fans for a while before heading off for another signhing at the Hard Rock Cafe. As always Chuck was friendly and chatty and seemed pleased that AC fans had gone to the show to see him.
The band have just ONE more UK show tomorrow night in Nuneaton at Queens Hall and tickets are still available. Catch them if you can! It's worth the trip, whether you think you know the songs or not!
