No nonsense southern rock specialists, Black Stone Cherry came together as school friends because they wanted something better to do and ended up delivering back to basics honky tonk blues. Band members Chris Robertson, Ben Wells and John Frey Young have delivered a succession of hard rock albums and have undertaken a serious live touring schedule including supports with Def Leppard, Whitesnake, Nickelback, Lynryd Skynyrd, Bad Company And Alter Bridge.
