Kennedy, hometown crowd enjoy walk down memory lane

When he spoke to The Spokesman-Review in December in advance of Alter Bridge’s sold-out show at the Knitting Factory, singer/guitarist Myles Kennedy expressed awe at the path his life had taken. “There is not a day that goes by where I don’t realize that after doing this for a few decades that I still get to do this,” he said. “It’s a wonderful thing so I don’t take it for granted.”

It’s a Monday afternoon, and Myles Kennedy is in a hotel room in San Francisco. Or, at least, he thinks he’s in San Francisco. “I don’t know where I am half the time,” he said with a laugh.

He still lives in Spokane, but he’s rarely home these days, and he hasn’t played a major local show since Alter Bridge passed through here in 2010.

Clark: Ascension to rock star status slow, deserved

His name looms high on the cover of the latest Slash album as well as in the songwriting credits. When he isn’t touring and recording with the former Guns N’ Roses guitarist, he’s doing the same for Alter Bridge – the band guitar slinger Mark Tremonti formed after the megagroup Creed imploded.

Alter Bridge singer caps a wild 2010
