Af­ter a few years sell­ing out the world’s big­gest venues with his old co­horts Slash, his Les Paul and top hat have re­turned to the day job. A deal less bloated than pre­vi­ous ef­fort World On Fire, Liv­ing The Dream com­pe­tently de­liv­ers what you’d ex­pect from a 53-year-old axe-slinger whose artis­tic peak was 30 years ago: a few cool riffs, some giddy so­los (the boy from Stoke can still play), and even a song or two that might just sink their hooks in. Kick­ing off with the rol­lick­ing if in­of­fen­sive The Call Of The Wild and Serve You Right, things get groovy with Read Be­tween The Lines and Slow Grind, and he leaves Myles Kennedy to steal the show on the ten­der, The One You Loved Is Gone.
