CHRIS FARLOWE & THE R&B ALL STARS IN REGENSBURG, GERMANY (1ST FEBRUARY 2002)
It is not the first time that the
Rhythm and Blues All Stars have played a
concert in Regensburg's No. 1 (and sold-out) music club, Alte
The line-up of the band was different this year, but they had Chris Farlowe on lead vocals again.
I've seen Chris Farlowe several times before, but what he did last Friday I have never witnessed before. He made lots of jokes and sang with different styles of voice. He also had lots of power and danced on the stage.

Every minute of this concert was full of life, that's exactly what music was made for. Unfortunately there are not many musicians these days that can perform and act like the Rhythm and Blues All Stars, what a pity.
