I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

The Days Of Innocence - Richie Onori - New Release Review



I have been listening to a new recording, Days Of Innocence, by Richie Onori. Richie initially hit the music scene as drummer for Sweet but has also worked with Keith Emerson, Richie Sambora, Louis Johnson, Ronnie James Dio, Paul Rogers, Slash and Steve Lukather. Onori handles guitar, drums, vocals and harmonica on this recording. The opening track, Days of Innocence has a definite warmth and familiarity like a pop tune that you have known all of your life. Goodbye Cruel World has a bluesy rockabilly flavor and has a cool pop hook with some interesting guitar riffs. Running Down The Devils Road is an interesting track with a 60's vibe with reverb and a western theme. Party Queen gets a bit of the British rock vibe like Mott or Bowie. Candle In My Heart is an interesting ballad with the opportunity for Onori to play cool guitar and harp solos along with his solid vocals. In listening to the recording I hear definite touches of Van Morrison, Elvis Costello David Bowie with a definite California twist. Not bad company!
