Planet 9 [Import]
When you first lay ears on their sound, their influences speak clearly: AC DC, Metallica, the Cult, Black Sabbath, C.O.C, and Guns 'n Roses. Each member has had their share of openers for national acts like Ace Frehley, Warrant, Mike Tramp (White Lion). Like so many other bands, Planet 9 went through member changes and took a hiatus from 2004-2007. In 2007, founding member Alan 'AK' Kennedy began writing with Ron Zingaro. AK's front man swagger is reminiscent of the attitude of the early Guns 'n Roses days. Planet 9 shows are like a wide open throttle from beginning to end.
