Everyone from Sir Paul McCartney and Jimmy Page to Queens of the Stone Age now relishes the chance to share a stage with Dave Grohl and his legendary Foo Fighters. The question is: why? Musical depth? Not really. Major success? Well, yes. Despite no longer shifting albums in the same quantity as they did twenty years ago, this band can still fill stadiums the world over (when Dave's not breaking his leg, of course).Long before Kurt Cobain blew his brains out in 1994, Dave Grohl was planning for a life after Nirvana. The unflinching bright sunlight to Cobain's permanent midnight darkness, Grohl had come from a similar broken home to his erstwhile band leader, but came out of the experience differently - brimming with positivity and a shrewd grasp of opportunities in the music industry.Did Grohl merely take the sonic blueprint of Nirvana and embellish it with a more life-affirming pop sheen? Of course he did. Every band in America that sold over a million records in the post-grunge 90s did the same. The difference was that Grohl had real credibility. And he knew it.With exclusive testimony from true insiders (including Krist Novoselic, Grohl's bass-playing partner in Nirvana, ex-girlfirends, record company executives, tour photographers and confidantes), this book is an exploration of the real story behind Grohl and the Foo Fighters - the only serious literary biography of the group and its leader, one of the most famous and critically bulletproof rock figures of the 21st century.
Brandneues Studio-Album der grandiosen Band aus UK ! Mit Transmuting liefern sie nun ihr bis dato absolut bestes und vollständigstes Werk ab. Das Album wurde in den Chapel Studios (Arctic Monkeys, Pearl Jam) aufgenommen.nnEndlich hat die dreiköpfige Band aus Großbritannien das Folgealbum zu der in 2007 erschienen CD 61 aufgenommen. Eine eklektische Sammlung von Songs - von der atemlosen Hymne des Album-Openers und ersten Single Moves Like Water bis zu dem wahrhaft epischem, sechs Minuten langem Empire, von der Akustik des low-key Blanket, bis zum verzerrtem Drive von Who Do You Love kombiniert die Band eine straffe Rhythmussektion mit erfinderischen Gitarren-Riffs und dem emotionalem Gesang von Tim Brownlow. Das Album wurde in den Chapel Studios (Arctic Monkeys, Pearl Jam) aufgenommen, produziert und gemischt von Richie Kayvan und dem legendären Tom Allom (Black Sabbath, Judas Priest) und schließlich von Kevin Metcalfe (Paul McCartney, The Who, Spiritualized) bei Sound-Mastering gemastert. Belascos Geschichte ist eine Story mit vielen Drehungen und Wendungen. 2000 gegründet, unterzeichnete die Band schon nach ihrem zweiten Auftritt einen Vertrag bei dem äußerst angesehenen Indie-Label Splendid/City Slang (Lambchop, Wheat). Das Debütalbum Simplicity (in Großbritannien im Jahr 2001 erschienen) wurde von Charlie Francis (REM, Turin Breaks) produziert und von Kritikern gefeiert. Belasco hat als Vertreter der Indie-Szene irrsinnig viel erreicht (trotz eines misslungenen Major-Projekts mit Mercury Records in 2005). Weltweit haben sie Platten im gehobenen fünfstelligen Bereich verkauft und gelangten auf die Playlists so unterschiedlicher, wie einflussreicher Sender: Deutschlands Motor FM, Fritz, Sputnik, Eins Live, You FM u.v.a. , Australiens Triple J oder KCRW in LA. Sie haben Gigs auf der ganzen Welt gespielt, darunter auch viele Mainstages europäischer Festivals: Isle Of Wight (UK), Haldern und Bochum Total (Deutschland), Alive (Belgien) und Music In My Head (Holland) mit Größen wie PJ Harvey, The Cardigans, Paul Weller, Iggy Pop, Bright Eyes und Patti Smith. Sänger Tim Brownlow, der durch seinen extravaganten Bass-Stil legendäre Duff Battye und Schlagzeuger Bill Cartledge brennen nun darauf, das neue Album live vorzustellen und kommen im Herbst dann auch in Deutschland auf Tour. TRACKS: 1. Moves Like Water 2. Everyone 3. Poor Man 4. Home 5. Taken 6. (Blanket) 7. Empire 8 Who Do You Love 9. (Rosa) 10. Open Up 11. What Is It 12. Eyes

This exciting musical marine epic is about a guitarfish and his awesome band of sea creatures trying to tour without getting hooked by humans. Jimi Fin Licks leads The Flow on dangerous excursions in open water and on an eventful aquarium tour that ultimately relays a preservation message. The Flow hit the big time with the fun-key tune 'Blue Is the New Green.' Millions get the message at the Fishstock Festival! Cap'n Less is the pen name for author Jimmy Leslie. He is the former editor of Gig magazine, and a veteran contributor to Guitar Player and Bass Player magazines. He's interviewed everyone from Jack White (White Stripes) to Bootsy Collins (James Brown, P-Funk). Collins provided the forward Leslie's first work of fiction. Collins says: 'I dig Guitarfish Adventures because its two important messages. First, that funky music is an expression of one's true self. It creates a fun environment with the understanding that being different is cool. I'm honored to be the inspiration for Shugga the Manta Ray! The second note is that blue is indeed the new green. It's time to pay equal respect to all creatures-on land and underwater. We need to leave the world as funky as we found it for future generations.' Donald Ritter is the owner of Category 5 Amplification, which donates a portion of its proceeds to Gulf Coast restoration. He says: 'My 8-year-old daughter and I finished Guitarfish Adventures in about 20 minutes-perfect for a bedtime story. It was fun and engaging. Grace got the message that 'Blue Is the New Green,' and now has a whole new vocabulary about sustainable fishing, and environmental awareness. She was intrigued with the characters, and enjoyed the musical references as well. The first thing she wanted to do was have Jimi Fin Licks sign her guitar. Six months later, she had full recall of the story, and the message. I highly recommend this story to any parent who wants to spend a fun and informative 20 minutes with their child.'

Filled with fascinating insights into the trade and little-known details about the greats, Born to Drum elevates drummers and their achievements to their rightful place in music lore and pop culture. 'As Born to Drum proves, there's a lot more to be told about drums and drumming than the Rolls-Royce in the swimming pool and the pyro beneath the bass drum.&#8221;&#8212;NICK MASON, Pink Floyd 'Everyone should read this book&#8212;especially if you're not a drummer. A great insight into a great sport.&#8221;&#8212;Joey Kramer, Aerosmith
