Review by John Jeffrey Photos by Diana MacDonald (except LA Guns photo - Thomas S. Orwat Jr.)
Akron, NY - This past Friday was the last concert for Braun's "summer" concert series (they will continue to have concerts throughout the fall inside their heated pavilion), as closing things out was the triple bill, featuring Skid Row, Saliva and LA Guns. While many fans could see why the pairing of Skid Row and LA Guns made sense, considering both bands are classic throw-backs from the 80's with impressive catalogs of music, a lot of people questioned why Saliva was part of the bill. Although all of the groups feature several replacement members and have all gone through many personnel changes throughout their careers (LA Guns wins this contest with a list of approximately 35 people who have come and gone from the band), Saliva is viewed by many as a waning, one-hit wonder, and minus original lead vocalist, Josey Scott, they had the most to prove on this night to the reported 1200 fans who were in attendance.
