by Diana Olson
Beer Man - Mick Mercury & the Meteors' newest CD is a live studio recording of this 4-piece blues band. A vintage 70s sound blend of American and English-style blues with 7 original tracks.
With Mick on vocals and bass, Pops Mercury on vocals and harmonica, Rod Broadbent on guitar and Kevin Hoffman on drums, "Beerman" delivers the blues with a taste of rock. “Boogie with your Baby”, puts you right out on the dance floor of a bar where “On the Streets” sets a rock mood.
All 7 tracks feature Micks gritty but slick voice and nice touches of harmonica. The guitar playing was the highlight of the disk.
