Richie Arndt & The Bluenatics

Richie Arndt & The Bluenatics - Rorymania - 2007 - Fuego Records, Germany

After recording 4 CDs with his Band The Bluenatics, German bluesrock guitarslinger Richie Arndt recorded his 5th album as a tribute to one of his heroes Rory Gallagher. There are 11 of Rory's tunes and a very special tribute song called 'Rory'. Richie Arndt is known as one of Germanys best blues guitarists and he asked three more guitar masters to join him for this project: Alex Conti (Hamburg Blues Band, Lake), Gregor Hilden and Henrik Freischlader. This album was recorded in Bremen, 2007. It's quite good as an album on it's own, and a good tribute to Rory Gallagher. A.O.O.F.C would be interested in your views on this album, especially Rory fans. Check out Richie Arndt's "Voodoo" album which has a different blues rock flavour. Listen to it on it's own merits. With tribute albums, very few live up to expectations, but this album, while lacking some of the firepower of Rory's music, covers his songs very well. It would take a monumental effort from any band, no matter how talented, to do justice to Rory Gallagher's legendary talent.

Richie Arndt & The Bluenatics, german based Blues-Rock trio. They are an exception in the German music-scene. Founded in 1994, they became an extraordinary live-act over the last 12 yeras. After the band has made it’s homework in traditional Blues and Blues-Rock on their first 3 CD’s, is the fourth CD “Travellers” a synonym for the musical voyage of Richie Arndt, leading us through different stations of Blues, Rock and pop, always with that typical Bluenatics-Sound and with great musical maturity. Full of emotions, guitarist and singer Richie Arndt, bassist Jens-Ulrich Handreka and drummer Frank Boestfleisch show how they can handle the “Roots” of contemporary Rock-Muisc. Their latest CD “Rorymania” is a tribute to Rory Gallagher, Richie Arndt’s inspiration and influence on guitar and live style. The CD features three german guitar slingers, Gregor Hilden, Alex Conti and Henrik Freischlader.
