Day 27: “Blackbird” – Alter Bridge

!!!ITALIAN!!!

28.06.2011 UPDATE (To be confirmed): To those who missed AB live on Sonisphere, Save the Date! 4 concert in Italy during October, if you want to know more about this check this link!

We can easily talk about the band of today by saying that they are one of the Best Rock Band in activity. We are talking about Alter Bridge, which are going to perform tomorrow in Italy, at Sonisphere Festival.

Myles Kennedy, Mark Tremonti, Scott Phillips e Brian Marshall: this is the full band, and this is the perfect combination of skills, on stage appearence and innovation.  Those whose were waiting for “The Creed with a new singer” has soon be disillusioned.

AB born on 2004 from what remains of Creed (Tremonti, Phillips e Marshall) and Mayfield Four (Myles Kennedy). Three album has been released from 2004, and all of them were both appreciated by audience and critics.

“Blackbird” is part of the second album, it has been awarded as “Song with the best guitar solo ever” from the magazine “Guitarist”. Still in “Blackbird”, Myles shows his great singing skills: up to four octave of vocal range, and the longest note kept with one breath in all AB’s songs  (31 seconds!) .

Now it’s time to hear the song, straight from Live in Amsterdam  2009. Here it is for you, audience of Onesongfortoday!

TESTO di Blackbird

The willow it weeps today

A breeze from the distance is calling your name

Unfurl your black wings and wait

Across the horizon it’s coming to sweep you away

It’s coming to sweep you away

Let the wind carry you home

Blackbird fly away

May you never be broken again

The fragile cannot endure

The wrecked and the jaded a place so impure

The static of this cruel world

Cause some birds to fly long before they’ve seen their day

Long before they’ve seen their day

Let the wind carry you home

Blackbird fly away

May you never be broken again

Beyond the suffering you’ve known

I hope you find your way

May you never be broken again

Ascend may you find no resistance

Know that you made such a difference

All you leave behind will live to the end

The cycle of suffering goes on

But memories of you stay strong

Someday I too will fly and find you again

Let the wind carry you home

Blackbird fly away

May you never be broken again

Beyond the suffering you’ve known

I hope you find your way

May you never be broken again

May you never be broken again
