PNC Music Pavilion

Paul Rodgers is 68 years old. Jeff Beck is 74. Ann Wilson is 68. Who says you can't get better with age? The trio of rock icons hit Charlotte's PNC Music Pavilion on Sunday night and proved they've still got what it takes to hit all the right notes. While Rodgers filled his performance with songs from Bad Company and Free, Ann Wilson of Heart focused more on covers of music that influenced her and meant something to her. Meanwhile, it was Beck who lit up the night from start to finish. The legendary guitarist simply shredded every note and showed why he's at or near the top of so many best guitarist lists. (Widespread Panic guitarist Jimmy Herring even made the drive up from Atlanta just to see him.) The night was opened by John Bonham's sister, Deborah. There might not have been many people in attendance but those who were soaked in every minute of classic rock. As Ann Wilson said, "It's a night full of music performed by people with real voices and instruments." Plenty of modern musicians should take notes.
