CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Rock 'n' roll has seen better days. Three Doors Down guitarist Chris Henderson acknowledged that there's no way around it: rock music as he knows it has kind of been on a downswing.
"Everything is synthetic and programmed," he said, bemoaning the recent wave of electronic dance music and dubstep.
"There's nothing you can do about it, but kind of ride it out," he added. "It's not like I have any choice. It's not like I'm going to write a rap song anytime soon."
Three Doors Down, he said, will be sticking with rock. The band, best known for more than a decade of hard rock hits, including "Kryptonite," "Here Without You" and "It's Not My Time," comes to the Big Sandy Superstore Arena in Huntington Wednesday night for a co-headlining show with fellow rockers Daughtry.
Henderson sounded glad to be back on the road. He said the band is trying out some new things in different cities.
"In Huntington, we're going to give away two tickets -- or maybe two tickets and two passes to the show via Twitter."
Tickets for the show, he explained, will be hidden somewhere in Huntington. The day of the show, the band will tweet pictures and hints about where to find the tickets from its account: @3doorsdown. (You'll also be able to find them on Henderson's account, @Chris3DD, and Chet Roberts', @croberdog.)
"I think it will be kind of fun," he said.
