Sisters XXX

Post your reviews of Sisters-related material or interviews with Sisters-related musicians here. And don't believe the hype: 1985 most definitely is a fashion statement.

I don't want to start a war about all that guitar stuff,just think,the one that deserves to be in the Sisters XXX concerts should be Adam.He is a VERY GOOD guitar player,Ben is just GOOD.You know I'm right

I understand, I think, what you mean to say.
Adam was surely far more to The Sisters than just a guitar player ...
And his leaving marked, IMHO, another very very dark but possibly unavoidable day in Sisters history ...
which took a very long time to overcome ...

OTOH, I wouldn't want to know, where The Sisters were without Chris - and Ben.
He had to step in for the Hellriders' Bite The Bullet Tour 2006 ...
with way less experience at hand compared to Adam in 1993.

Anyway, from then to now Ben has, IMHO, definitely improved a lot and extended his technique,
his repertoire and his means of improvisation. Did you hear what he played during the 2010 gigs?
It took something to get there ... and to me, that sounded like a first discreet echo from what great new Sisters songs could be like.

You don't really want anybody else play the XXX gigs, do you?
Adam was surely one of the best things ever happened to the Sisters.
But he's gone ... more than five years ago by now. I only hope and
wish they managed to stay friends. Everythings else were just fooling.

I respect their effords,seen the energy they bring on stage,it's remarcable.It might be just a random rant of mine,sorry bout it.
Just call it nostalgia to a certain sound from certain period.That's all. :wink:

Well I don't know, because I have no knowledge at all about playing the guitar, I'm just a listener. :) And I've never said I didn't like Adam, God forbid. :) But I think that comparing Adam to Ben is rather impossible because they are too different, it's like comparing a Dodge Viper to a Nissan Patrol, or a cupcake to a herring: both are good but what we prefer is mostly a matter of taste, mood, and other circumstances. :)

@ emma. Very well formulated.

Speaking of herring, if you are going to Tilburg try a raw Dutch herring with unions and pickles. I am sure you will like it.

I am not going to the gig, but I want to be made very jealous. I want to be told of a voice like a choir of baritone angels, a crystal clear sound, a whole new set list, loads of new songs, a live bass player and confirmation of a new album

Same s**t different shirt (with or without cupcakes)
