The Ghost's Legs
The Ghost's Legs are a metal/rock band and hail from the village of Muff in Donegal. These four local lads have brought their talents together in 2013 to form this group. This is a band clearly influenced by groups such as Nirvana, Metallica, Queens of the Stone Age, Johnny Cash and many more. They do a variety of covers but with an original twist. They also have a selection of their own music which will only grow in 2014.
TheGhost’s Legs played The Rock Bar in Muff last night and no one could possibly argue the potential these four lads surely have. It’s a musical session with a difference.
They manage to put their own individual take on each song. Even a Johnny Cash number takes on a whole new twist. As for their rendition of George Michaels Faith, one couldn’t help but smile and enjoy! George Michael will never sound the same again!
And as for ‘Wagonwheel’, that dreaded number, it fortunately doesn't make an appearance in the set. However a biscuit wagonwheel managed to fly from the drummer last night across to my table! That was more than enough wagonwheel for one night! My favourite of the night would have to be ‘Tainted Love’. A real trip down the ’80′s memory lane!
Four very talented musicians form this band. Someone said to me last night, ‘that’s not my kind of music, but they are really good’! That’s a pretty good compliment I’d say!
The Ghost’s Legs will no doubt be gigging a lot more in 2014. Keep your eyes peeled for their next date. Keep it going lads. We need more musical gigs like this!
