It isn't unheard of for a post-baby boomer rock band to have some baby boomer influences, either direct or indirect. For example, a post-grunge outfit might claim Creed, Pearl Jam, Nirvana, and Live as influences but also have traces of Led Zeppelin or the Beatles in its sound. But the post-baby boomers who comprise Silvertide aren't alternative rockers who have some baby boomer influences here and there -- they're a post-boomer band with a totally retro hard rock sound that is firmly planted in the '70s and '80s. The Philadelphia residents' bluesy, gritty, riff-driven songs are devoid of alterna-rock influences; their list of influences includes Aerosmith, Led Zeppelin, the Faces, Guns N' Roses, the Who, and the Rolling Stones, among others. And ironically, Silvertide's members weren't even born when Zeppelin (which broke up in 1980) was still together.
