Sully Erna with Lisa Guyer – “Sinner’s Prayer” Live Acoustic Version
Being the frontman for a global-sensation rock outfit would be quite enough to keep most people busy. But for Godsmack’s Sully Erna, 15 million albums sold, four Grammy nominations, and a Billboard Award weren’t enough. In 2010, he released Avalon, an album that laces Erna’s distinctive, gritty voice through tribal rhythms, mournful string instrumentation, and delicate piano notes. Erna first picked up a pair of drumsticks at age three and then, unlike most three-year-olds, didn’t hit the cat with them. It’s evident that he calls on his decades of musicianship to flesh out the album’s eclectic sound. ”Sinner’s Prayer” calls on thundering percussion and a chanting, ghostly chorus of voices, while a lilting flute wanders in and out of the folk-tinged “My Light.”
The State Theatre was saved, as its website states, from "the ravages of time." Built in 1921 as a vaudeville and silent-film palace, the venue fell on hard times in the 1970s. In 2003, however, a $3 million renovation restored the State Theatre to much of its original glory, as crews painstakingly rehabbed the ornamental plaster, terracotta exterior, and actor holding cells. Inside the theater, a stunning chandelier sparkles more brightly than ever below the venue's signature dome.
