Keep jammin’ with my Stone Cold brothers, more new songs, more gigs. Hopefully this covid f#@cks off and the live music scene opens up again.
Stone Cold regularly play live and their shows are excellent. The bastard son of Black Sabbath and Motorhead, their music is heavy but it’s “classic rock” heavy (in a modern way!!!).
