Evanescence’s Amy Lee on Halestorm’s Lzzy Hale: ‘She’s the Real Deal’
While rock may be a male dominated world, when the women speak, they do so loudly. Two great examples of that are Amy Lee and her band Evanescence and Lzzy Hale with Halestorm. The two leading ladies have been crossing paths lately and have nothing but kind and supportive words for each other.
In a recent interview with 106.5 The End at last weekend’s Carolina Rebellion (May 12), Amy Lee raved about Hale and her masterful pipes. “I love her voice, she has a beautiful voice,” Lee said. “I had heard their [Halestorm] music. I went to check her out live to see if it was the real deal and she’s the real deal. She has a voice like … power! She’s powerful.”
With not a lot of female fronted bands on the rock circuit Lee talked about the experience of seeing Halestorm live. “I look forward to it,” she expressed. “I can get juiced up and inspired.”
Lee and Evanescence, currently out on tour in support of their latest self-titled disc also dished on the rules of the road. As seasoned vets, they definitely have some insight. “Always carry baby wipes, because some days you just can’t catch a shower,” reports Lee. “Hydrate, you have to drink a little or else you’re not going to be able to rock like you need to.”
When asked who they were most looking forward to seeing that day, Lee couldn’t name just one band, “We have friends here,” she admitted. “We love Korn. Chevelle - who we know, we’re going to tour with the later this year.” Evanescence will be overseas through the beginning of July. The tour with Chevelle has not yet been officially announced so fans certainly have that to look forward to.
