Alastair Greene

Through the Rain


As those in the know will tell you, there’s a hotbed of musical talent roaming our streets, from trained session players to some of the industry’s most indispensable touring musicians. At the head of that pack is Alastair Greene. The S.B. guitarist may best be name-dropped as Alan Parson’s right-hand man, but as his solo records (and live shows) prove, Greene’s also a star in his own right. On Through the Rain, Greene morphs his signature blues approach into a wailing rock ‘n’ roll hybrid, replete with searing solos and licks that recall the Stones at their most bombastic. The electric and eclectic bar-ready rock of Through the Rain is sure to dazzle even the most casual of players, but it’s slow-burning instrumental numbers like “Dearly Departed” that remind us why Greene’s talents go far beyond his chops. Alastair Greene plays Blackbeard’s BBQ (1591 Spinnaker Dr., Ventura) on Friday, December 16, at 7 p.m. Call 650-7773 for info.
