Ben Poole – Anytime You Need Me for Firebrand
Absolutely cracking new album from Ben Poole, blues with soul, a little funk and a fresh sound, this one is really top notch.
Really brilliant show all around, support from the excellent King King and Europe were on fire, best I have seen them and that’s saying something. Joey’s voice is absolutely on the money right now and he’s loving it.
These Aussie melodic monsters are releasing a high quality album ever 12 months, and this one certainly falls right into the mould, terrific right the way through.
Myles Kennedy made a very welcome stop off in Dublin on his acoustic Tour, in support of the excellent Year Of The Tiger album. A sold out venue and a brilliant show.

HRH AOR 6 – Hafan Y Mor, Pwllheli – 8th-10th-03-2018 for Rockposer.com
Awesome album from Laurence Jones, no doubt at all this will be in the Top 10 at year end.
Hard hitting modern Thrash from Latvia that doesn’t ignore it’s roots.
Excellent and interesting new album from Blood Red Saints, taking a slightly different direction and still holding their melodic sound oh so well, definitely worth some of your attention this one. Cracking band.
Greek AOR band Ailafar released their latest album towards the end of 2017, containing a guest appearance from none other than FM’s Steve Overland.
My personal highlights and lowlights of last year along with those of my excellent colleagues at Midlands Rocks.
