David "Rock" Feinstein has an illustrious hard rock past.
His cousin was none other than Ronnie James Dio,
with whom he played in the
seventies in the band Elf before a successful run with
in the eighties.
After more than a decade away from the scene, Feinstein
the man was back,
with a new band featuring noted singer John West, formerly
The group's 2003 album, Third Wish
, shows that the man still
has some chops left, even though the unabashed 80's worship on
display isn't exactly contemporary.
This isn't a Rods rehash, as Third Wish
has a more classy
feel than the blue-collar style of the Rods, but Feinstein's
guitar work is quite all right, and the rest of the band
make solid contributions as well.
80's purists who might be tired of the more upbeat Euro style
of metal would do well to seek out this album.
