Just a year ago, it looked like local rock band Leslie was at an exciting pivotal moment, armed with a new studio album and steaming with momentum. Over the summer, however, things came to an end for the band. Lead singer/guitarist Sadler Vaden suddenly found himself living in a new home in Nashville and being offered on opportunity to play lead guitar with veteran Georgia rock group Drivin' N Cryin'. He took it. On Oct. 27, they announced the installment of Vaden as an official member. "Sadler is one part guitarist-extraordinaire, one part talented songwriter, one part soulful singer, and two parts kick-ass," read the post. They've been kicking ass ever since.
