Lightnin’ Rod & The Thunderbolts
-All American Blues
By Bob Silvestri

Lightnin’ Rod & The Thunderbolts new CD titled All American Blues is just what the title says, all American blues that can be found being played in roadhouses and biker bars from coast to coast. The band, whose members include Lightnin’ Rod Wilson-guitar and vocals, Peter Heydinger-bass, Don Bush-drums and keyboards from ex-Bob Seeger and The Silver Bullet Band member, Bob Schultz hit hard with a heavy blues rock style. “Bad Memories” starts off the CD with a driving blues sound and is followed by the tile cut “All American Blues” The slow blues sound of “It’s Over Baby” and “Take Care Of You” are winners as well. Willie Dixon’s “Hoochie Coochie Man” gets a mean work out from the band while the track “I May Not Be Politically Correct” is self-explanatory. Other tracks of note include “Why Are You So Cold” and “Two Shoed Boogie” For more info on Lightnin' Rod & The Thunderbolts you can contact Rod at lightning  rod3@hotmail.com
