Chris Shiflett may be best known as lead guitarist for Foo Fighters, No Use for a Name, and Me First and the Gimme Gimmes; But he has done quite well on his own as well. His music looks to his rock n’ roll and punk roots for inspiration, but also gives a nod to old-school country music.
Catch Shiflett is at Top Cat’s on Saturday, September 7th!
Hard Lessons, Shiflett's newest album, is a raw blast of Telecaster twang and guitar-driven bang, driven home by autobiographical songwriting and muscular guitar work. Like West Coast Town, it plants its boots on both sides of the country/rock di- vide, mixing songs about honky-tonk heartache and small-town roots with the urgent sound of overdriven guitars, the epic screech of Marshall tube amplifiers, and raw chemistry of a live-in-the-studio band.
Don’t miss your chance to see Chris Shiflett up close and personal on the Top Cat’s stage this Saturday!
