He is the Wagner of rock n roll. And the haircuts still pretty cool.Aberdeen Voice: Thirty years together makes for flawless instrumentals, a unique sound, and some remarkable riffs and harmonies.http://www.kirkbrandon.comTickets:https://www.ticketweb.uk/event/spear-of-destiny-hare-hounds-tickets/10568505?REFERRAL_ID=twfb
