Lists: Gojira, Snoop Dogg, Soundgarden, The Bronx, The Who
Another work week has come and gone so you know what that means. It is time for another edition of the Bootleg Roundup.
We start things off in Seattle where the mighty Soundgarden have returned home for two sold out shows. The reunited band kicked off the run last night with the help of some special friends. Check out Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready joining Chris, Kim, Ben and Matt on Tighter and Tighter.
Next up we have some good news and we have some bad news. The bad news is that this past weekend in New Orleans, the San Francisco 49ers lost their first Super Bowl in franchise history. The good news is that Snoop Dogg still performed at a team after party. Check out his classic Gin & Juice down below.
French extreme metallers Gojira are currently on tour here in the United States. Having just barely missed our top metal albums of 2012 list, feel free to enjoy this tasty cut from a recent show in Dallas.
49ers fans are not the only ones who had a rough week. As our pals over at Hidden Track report, current Who drummer Zak Starkey had to miss out on a gig in San Diego earlier this week due to a tendon issue. With only one rehearsal through the entire Quadrophenia album, back up drummer Scott Devours saved the day as you can see in the below video.
Finally we wrap up our Roundup this week with The Bronx. They dropped a great new record this week and they were kind enough to review it for us. You can read that here and you can watch footage of Too Many Devils from their NYC record release show down below.
We will be back next Thursday with a very special Bootleg Roundup for a very special Hallmark Holiday.
