Dru Brinkerhoff - vocals
Tony Reed - guitar
Mykey Haslip - drums
Mike DuPont - bass 

Stone Axe is the other band from Mos Generator and multi-talented Tony Reed.

Now its hard to believe I didn’t know much about Mos Generator but I know a lot about Stone Axe. They play a great blend of 70s based Hard Rock mixed with great Blues Rock Overtones.

If your into Thin Lizzy, AC/DC, Free and Sabbath then your going to love these guys. As the guys have released a couple of albums already but I am going to highlight their 2nd and best offering to date.

II was originally a 10 song hard rocking blast of top-notch riffs released back in 2010 that was acclaimed by fans and critics alike. They even managed to perform with legendary acts like Wino and Saint Vitus amongst many others. Plus they played a legendary brilliant set at Roadburn as well.

So you these guys are super-talented and are masters at what they do. Well the good guys at Ripple Music have released a Deluxe Edition of their brilliant 2nd album.

But this time it features a 2nd disc of 15 rare and unreleased Stone Axe Tracks. This makes the album even better to get as the 15 tracks shows why this band is very highly thought of all over the place.

They have been featured on all the best blogs and websites with great reason. As these guys are amazing musicians who can write brilliant hard-rock tracks in their sleep.

This deluxe edition made me love this album all over again like I originally did back in 2010. I forgot how great an album it is and full of high energy hard rocking tracks that will have you rocking in no time.

If you’re a fan of this great band you don’t need convincing in buying this great album. If you’re a new fan then like the recent Mos Generator re-issue this demands your full attention now.

So if your into 70s Hard Rock/Blues Rock then look no further as Stone Axe are one of the best bands around.

Ripple Music have done it again in releasing a superb collection of songs and giving them the treatment and respect they deserve.

This is a must for every Stone Axe fan there. 2012 seems to be the year of Stone Axe as they have just released their legendary Live At Roadburn Set on CD/LP available here. Plus a live concert DVD is in the works as well for this great band as well.

Well I have gone on long enough. This is a fantastic package for a brilliant band. This is available from all good stockists everywhere and Ripple Effect.

Highly Recommended.
