next: Rose Hill Drive

"Tearing my body all apart"

Rose Hill Drive is one of the few bands nowadays with both the chops and the cahones to successfully cover Jimi Hendrix (see above). As you can hear in their sound, they were big fans of all things Hendrix while growing up in the mountains of Boulder, CO.

So for those wondering who will carry the torch of this raw hard rock sound as the legends continue to pass away (RIP Mitch Mitchell), look no further than Rose Hill Drive. Equipped with nothing more than guitar, bass, and drums, the trio creates a wall of sound that literally dropped jaws when they opened for The Who on their most recent world tour.

Rose Hill Drive performs TONIGHT at the Highline Ballroom in NYC. Stream the opening track from their second album Moon Is The New Earth below.
