HALESTORM MOVES TO BE WITH THEIR GEAR

NASHVILLE (AP) — Most people move their stuff when they relocate. Halestorm moved themselves to be with their stuff. Guitarist Joe Hottinger says their tour bus was based in Nashville and often it was traveling empty to pick up the band members in Pennsylvania or Florida. He says they decided to store their gear in Nashville and just fly in, but then he wanted to be by his guitars, so he moved there. The rest of the band followed. Singer Lzzy (LIZ’-ee) Hale says because Nashville is a city that’s all about music, they’ve become better musicians. She says they can’t get away with just faking it on stage when so many great musicians come through there.
