Best of 2012: Gene Sennes

Gene Sennes Best of 2012

Story by Gene Sennes

Here are some of my faves from the past year:

1. Blunderbuss by Jack White. I listened to this everyday for a month straight. I need to be in this band, man!

2. King Animal by Soundgarden. I waited a long time for this one… and wasn’t disappointed. Matt Cameron is one of my all-time favorite drummers, and the whole band picked up right where they left off.

3. The Dark Knight Rises Soundtrack by Hans Zimmer. A perfect blend of electronic and orchestral music. This cat has it down.

4. Public Image Limited at the Upstate Concert Hall, 10/12/12. Johnny Rotten in a strip mall in Clifton Park. Who knew?!

5. “Across the Great Divide: A Tribute to Levon Helm and the Band” at Valentine’s Music Hall, Albany, 6/15/12. I was honored to be asked to play, and there was no way I was gonna turn this down. I never had the chance to play “Chest Fever” before, and loved every minute on stage.
