Stone Ticket – Music Review

Stone Ticket's music is like a locomotive of pure energy and although it has many of the ingredients we've listened years ago from the old school of rock, the speed-powerful riffs and remarkable rhythm beats make them enchanting. On the other hand the lyrics offer material for discussion and deep thinking. These guys are like in a mission with some kind of remedy-message for the everyday living: ROCK!
14 years ago Vince Quinn turned his back on the British rock scene quitting Birmingham based cult rock band The Rain Men.
With his overnight case in hand and with cries of Judas! from his fellow band members, Vince headed off for the quiet life in Sweden, and disappeared into the music wilderness.
At the end of 2007, Vince had begun having regular jam sessions with a few local bands one band in particular a progressive rock group Vilgot caught his attention, he played alongside guitarist Henrik Widing, the two guitarists hit it off immediately even though the styles were to say the least,, at two extremes of the ,scale, They recorded an old rain men song that Vince had wrote years earlier, “Easy Money” recorded live and on a small computer in the rehearsal room it managed to captured the raw energy that rock music is all about., baby you got me, two steps behind, mary go round, the blackest heart were all recorded live on that small computer. for the next few months Henrik and Vince, tried out and had jam sessions with numerous musicians, as good as some of the jam sessions were nothing really jelled or felt right at the time. That was until the day Jarmo Vehmanen walked into the rehearsal room The jam session was electrifying, Stone Ticket was born,
Jarmo had contacted an old friend from the past, John Lilliestrand to come in and play the drums for the ticket, A new unsigned approach to collective writing and jamming was now on the agenda. Everything they did was now stone ticket, the riffs got better, the creativity stronger at the end of 2009 and beginning of 2010, the guys went into a small studio in Malmö to record five tracks, I can’t find my way, The Queen of Rock & Roll, Wildcat, Don’t try to find me and Lights R Low.
The songs keep getting better, the creativity is just electrifying and this, and well this is just the beginning! ...... .. .. ..
