Chili Cold Blood

Rock n' Roll Motherfucker Never mind the flashing meth-lover on the cover, this ain't Southern rock. Not by definition, at least. Chili Cold Blood is a trio of dirty, Southern blues-playing white boys who exude John Lee Hooker and blues stompers of the like. While RnRMF showcases the sweaty bar sentiment that Doug "Chili D" Strahan and Ethan "Cold Blood" Shaw breathe, it doesn't reflect the passion of their shows. The walls come tearing down live, but RnRMF barely makes a dent.
