Myles Kennedy has another single out from his newest debut solo album Year of the Tiger. The track, called “Devil on the Wall” addresses the death of his father.
“Dad got sick and chose not to go and see a doctor. He died of appendicitis. He died one night in his sleep because it blew up and gangrene went all over. He didn’t know it was [appendicitis] because he wouldn’t go and see a doctor.”
The track is obviously very personal to the singer, and is a fresh departure to the hard rock music fans are accustomed to. The former guitar instructor plays banjo, lap steel, bass, and mandolin in addition to guitar throughout the album, but in this live performance, it’s just raw acoustic guitar, and all his pure emotions into his vocals.
