The Stills - Crocodile Cafe, Seattle

I was glancing over some old gig photos and thought I would post them....even though they are a little out of date, I am sure you will all be happy to see them.
Over time, you might discover that we are a little Stills crazy here at Amplify HQ. During our trek across the globe, we were lucky enough to catch the boys at a few of their West Coast shows. We decided to change a few of our plans and head out to see them, especially as we were deprived of music whilst travelling on a serious budget and because it was the release of their new album.

As usual, they never disappoint. Maybe we are a little bias but they put on some truly great shows. They seemed to be tighter and more in control. I was slightly dubious with the departure of original guitarist Greg Paquet and I still had not decided about my thoughts of Dave Hamelin as the lead man but I am all for change. With Dave reminiscent of Bob Dylan you couldn't really fault their new direction. Gone were the choppy guitars and in their place came up-beat folky strums with Dave's drawl stumbling over the top.

It seems changes are quite a good idea.
