Guitar World posted an in-depth review of Megadeth guitarist Kiko Loureiro’s latest solo album, Open Source, with an interview. When the record broke, Loureiro addressed his decision to have the former guitarist of Megadeth Marty Friedman as guest on the track “Imminent Threat”.

Loureiro: “One of the worst things on the internet is the way people compare you to other guitarists. I’m exaggerating, but over the past five years most of the phrases on the internet that contain ‘Kiko’ and ‘Megadeth “have” Marty Friedman “in the same paragraph, don’t they?” I prefer Kiko! “or” I prefer Marty! ”

I thought the biggest message would be to have Marty Friedman (on the record), not only because he was the guy from Megadeth, but to show that music is not a competition. The best way to show that I’m in this open source collaborative vibe is to bring the guy in as a guest. “

Loureiro was released in Open Source in July 2020. Get the album here, and find a full audio stream below.

Lindsey Buckingham claimed Stevie Nicks was still in love with him.

The 71-year-old guitarist previously suggested he was fired from Fleetwood Mac in 2018 after Nicks, 73, issued an ultimatum to the rest of the group when he asked to delay an upcoming tour to promote his solo music – allegations she has always denied – and now he’s convinced she never really got over him after their relationship exploded while they were promoting their album Rumors in 1976 after four years of dating .

Speaking to The Times, Buckingham said: “There were a number of years when I was not above her. It is possible that she was never completely above her. above me either.

“The way we had to overcome rumors is part of the heritage and heroism of the whole thing. We didn’t have time to heal or go into the traditional sense. I think – and so on. she was the one who walked away from me at the time – that we both had to compartmentalize our feelings. It’s not a healthy thing to do because these little compartments can stay sealed for years until then. that things start to creep in when you don’t realize it.

“I met the love of my life late in life and it gave me a whole different worldview. Stevie didn’t have children. She took a different path and made it more important. to his professional life.

“How has it been over the past three, four, five years… It’s hard for me to know what her mentality is towards me, but I know what mine is for her because I am married for 21 years and have three children and this is the best thing that has ever happened to me. “

Nicks recently denied that she had Buckingham fired and claimed her version of events was “factually inaccurate”. The group recruited new members Mike Campbell and Kiwi Neil Finn to replace Buckingham.

She said: “His version of events is factually inaccurate and while I have never spoken publicly about the matter, it certainly seems like the time has come to shed some light on the truth.

“To be extremely clear, I didn’t get him fired, I didn’t ask for him to be fired, I didn’t ask for him to be fired. Frankly, I got fired. I pulled out. of the group in a proactive manner and a situation that I considered to be toxic to my well-being.

“If the band continued without me, so be it. And after lengthy panel discussions, Fleetwood Mac, a band whose legacy is rooted in evolution and change, found a new direction with two extremely talented new members. “

Here’s a look at some of the sets for Riot Fest Day 2:

Crush pumpkins

Seeing a band perform in their hometown is one of the defining moments in live music, and watching the ownership Chicago fans have for The Smashing Pumpkins. really never gets old – nor do a crowd of people singing the lyrics “the city by the lake” like it’s their birthright when the band blows up in “Tonight, Tonight”.

The quintessential ’90s rock act (against fellow Chicagoan Lupe Fiasco who performed across the park) acted like time hadn’t passed when they closed out at Riot Fest on Friday. to the introduction of gothic organ music as lightning bolts crisscrossed the sky overhead adding to the cryptic ambience.

There are few bands that can yet evoke the feeling of an era as viscerally as the Smashing Pumpkins can with the opening notes of songs like “Cherub Rock” that bring to mind the Wicker Park art scene three decades ago. where they made their debut.

Founding members Billy Corgan, James Iha and Jimmy Chamberlin were a show of unity with their full reunion finally coming to fruition in 2018. Original bassist D’Arcy Wretzky is still missing, although the addition of Jeff Schroeder complements the cast nicely. and completes the lush sound that dominates their catalog.

Corgan – dressed in a long ‘Adore’ era cape and pops of face paint – reflected with Iha on whether to play more on her ‘artsy f ***’ side and free up song choices. more esoteric. In the end, the band chose to stick with the classics with all the bullets on the table on songs like “1979,” “Zero,” “Bullet With Butterfly Wings,” “Today” and the new song “ Cyr “.

One of the real pleasures of the ensemble was “Eye”, their contribution to the “Lost Highway” soundtrack, for which they enlisted Meg Myers (who delivered her own set earlier today) to vocal tasks while Corgan followed his young daughter Clémentine on stage.

The band later enlisted the help of local guitarist Michael Angelo Batio for a gripping rendition of “United States” that added even more of a heavy metal tinge to the track.

Lasting nearly two hours, the Coming Home Show was an unforgettable event.

Sublime with Rome

With the death of frontman Bradley Nowell in 1996, Sublime could very well have passed away. Instead, the project was resurrected in 2009 by founding member and bassist Eric Wilson, who recruited new singer and guitarist Rome Ramirez and the project took on the new nickname of Sublime With Rome, indicative of their penchant for being. both a tribute to ska-reggae. mastodons while leaving room to go rogue with new material.

During the band’s Riot Fest set, which Ramirez called the “best” of the festival to date by the time they ended, the band’s and Nowell’s memory was held close to the chest.

Vintage video footage of the late singer was played during their recognizable hit “What I Got”, and Ramirez ended this song with a message for Nowell of “rest in peace”.

While the ensemble was marked by constant bleeding from nearby Motion City Soundtrack, the cold vibes of Sublime With Rome were no match for the contest; there was still a lot to hang on to the performance. While the material is mostly inherited in nature, they did well on the band’s beloved material like “Santeria,” “Summertime,” and “April 29, 1992 (Miami),” anchored by a live brass section and a DJ.

Fish bone

The Radical Stage was the center of the funk groove on Friday with a back-to-back double feature from two of the biggest alternative bands out of the crowded 80s coastal rock scenes, Fishbone and Living Color.

LA’s Fishbone kicked things off with a special treat, playing their flagship album, “The Reality Of My Surroundings” from 1991 in full to commemorate his 30th landmark.e anniversary this year. That’s now normal for Riot Fest, with festival organizers sort of negotiating with a number of bands in the lineup each year to bring together or play entire albums. And whatever they sacrifice to the music gods to make it happen over and over again, it’s really something to be appreciated from the independent organizers who continue to set the standard.

Fishbone’s set was an incredible display of orchestral strength with horns, guitars, drums, keyboards and a range of voices and choirs working in harmony, proving that the troupe still possesses the magic that spurred their cult there. over 40 years ago. The leading singles from the album “Everyday Sunshine” and the closest one to the album “Sunless Saturday” were clear winners and set the bar high for the following weekend acts, many of which draw inspiration from the Fishbone’s work for decades.

Living color

Living Color had a special guest in tow for their set – not that the magnetic performance of the masters of alt metal-funk fusion needed anything more to put it on top.

Professional wrestler CM Punk took the stage to perform the act’s latest song, their mega-hit “Cult of Personality,” which is also his famous entry-level music.

“In 1989, my little league team, the Indians, played a song to cheer us up, and it helped us win the championship that year,” he said, calling the members. from the group of “four of the greatest artists in the world”. “Which is not a total hyperbole.

Guitarist Vernon Reid has Mensa-level licks that might evoke spirits of the long-time blues underworld, while vocalist Corey Glover has a voice that oozes rhythm with every note. Glover will be one of the most colorful characters of the weekend, not only for his vibrant rock star character, but also literally for what he wore. Dressed in a neon green suit and orange dreads tucked under a bowler hat, the ‘Clockwork Orange’ / Wonka vibe worked for him as he was clearly visible headbanging in front of the crowd, watching the mosh pit he invoked, when he was not letting go his uncompromising voice on songs like “Ignorance is Bliss” and “Love Rears Its Ugly Head”.

Four decades old and still with the energy they did in their formative years, Living Color still brings a top notch show – if only they had a longer set!

Amigo the devil

Day 2 of Riot Fest got off to a crooked start with dark-minded singer-songwriter Amigo the devil, which was the antithesis of what most might expect from the genre.

The artist, born Danny Kiranos, pulled out a heavy sack of murderous ballads and revenge songs paired with expressive facial contractions that made you wonder if maybe you should avoid eye contact as he roamed the set. .

From spooky step-by-step details of how he took revenge on someone who harmed a child in “Better Ways To Fry A Fish” to Jim Jones-inspired song “Hungover In Jonestown,” the set de Kiranos was mired in the macabre and a good piece of cabaret theater that made him one of the early favorites of the day.

Jokingly describing himself as the “fat Dave Grohl,” Kiranos’ comparison at least suited the same way that he is able to command a crowd – and does it solo on top of it. “We just installed the drums for fun,” he reflected, pointing out that he actually didn’t have a band in the project.

Although Kiranos moves well between acoustic and electric guitars and banjo, it would be interesting to see him with a full range of accompaniments to really amplify the shock and awe that he delivers. A cover of “Escape (The Pina Colada Song)” was a better weird bet, but it’s his original material – told in incredible storytelling style – that makes him the new Johnny Cash of our true crime-obsessed generation.

Meg myers

Meg Myers’ the afternoon ended abruptly as she had to cut it short in the middle of her superb rendition of Kate Bush’s perennial hit “Running Up That Hill” as she entered overtime. However, anyone who looked at the ingenuous would have wondered where the time had passed, as her performance was nothing short of a hypnotic thrill – which may or may not have been a side effect of being blinded by her holographic suit. .

Tracks like the “Desire” blast to the convinced pop anthem “Any Way You Wanna Love” were well placed in his performance, uplifting him more as a lost relic of the evocative realm of ’90s alternative rock while staying current. the best of modernity. pop songwriters.

She gave flashbacks to Tori Amos’ best tracks in the heavy tracks while channeling the aggro poetry of artists like Liz Phair and making everything completely her own. Highlights included collaborating collaborator Morgxn for their soulful duo “I Hope You Cry”, as well as filling her set with a drummer and electric guitarist whose loud moans were the sauce on her plate of songs.

Myers stumbled across new material, rebooting a song or two while blaming it on her “one-eared” ears.

Come back for more reviews …

REMARK: Numerous COVID-19 safety protocols are in place for the festival, including disinfection and handwashing stations throughout the park, and an on-site COVID vaccination station (courtesy of St. Anthony; Pfizer and J&J vaccines only). In addition, all participants must present proof of a full vax or negative COVID test results (the latter within 48 hours of the date of entry) along with a valid photo ID issued by the government to be able to enter every day.

Between the Buried and Me guitarist Paul Wagoner was our guest on a recent episode of The MetalSucks podcast to discuss the band’s new album, Colors II, the emotional experience of going back on tour after a year and a half of hiatus, his thoughts on the role of livestreams in the future of heavy music, and more.

Regarding Colors II, Paul explained why the band decided it was a good time to produce a sequel to their fan favorite record from 2007, Colors. He explained:

“Well, actually the idea for ‘Colors II’ was born towards the end of 2019. We just felt like we were in a similar mental state to where we were with the band in 2007 when we had writes ‘Colors I.’ We were kind of in it, I don’t know if I would describe it as desperation. We felt like we were at a point where we really needed to do something special, next level, push ourselves a little more creatively and establish ourselves to move forward.

“We’re obviously getting older, so we thought, ‘If we’re going to keep doing this for a long time, we need another kind of historic record. “I still describe it as a spiritual or philosophical sequel to ‘Colors’ more than a real one… we weren’t trying to rewrite ‘Colors’. We were just in a similar frame of mind and creative headspace as the ones from 2007. Kind of a back-to-the-wall scenario where we thought we really had to bring it on this one.

“Sure [then] the pandemic has occurred. We spent the majority of that time writing the thing, which was a whole different thing. In many ways, it’s just the fusion of everything that was honestly perfect for some really creative outpouring on our part.

Speaking about the emotional experience of returning to producing live shows after a year and a half of hiatus, Paul said:

“I’m 42 years old and this is the longest time I have gone without playing a show since I was 16. It’s an emotional experience, it’s weird.

“There’s no getting around that, it’s kinda… even we’re on tour now, there’s a level of paranoia. We’re all vaccinated, we’re all super careful fool, we wear masks everywhere except on stage, we have all the room staff wear masks and everything. But even with all of that said, there is a risk there and it sucks.

“But at the same time, it’s good to be back here and we feel like we’ve done everything we can to ensure our own safety and that of our loved ones.

“I hope everyone in the crowd did the same, I can’t guarantee that at the moment, but I hope they did. We’re just trying to make the most of it. But those two and a half hours that we’re on stage, man, it’s the best part of my day and I love to do it. I am happy to be back here even though it is not the most ideal condition, as you know. [laughs]”

Colors II is now available and available for order here. You can listen to our full chat with Paul below or here.

Yasmin Williams, who will be performing at this year’s MerleFest, cradles the guitar in his lap to access his sound from a different perspective.


Tribune press service


Aarik Danielsen Tribune News Service

Many over-enthusiastic job seekers have spent their interview time turning their stated weaknesses into perceived strengths. They care too much. Work too hard. I don’t know when to stop.

Unwittingly, Yasmin Williams applied for – and got – a position among the most innovative guitarists of his generation. And in Williams’ case, every strength she possesses was forged from an honest recognition of her weaknesses. Of course, necessity is the mother of invention. But the limitation is also in the family.

Williams, who will be performing at MerleFest 2021, creates atmospheric, textured instrumentals through techniques such as using the guitar as a percussion instrument and lap-tapping – which is exactly what it sounds like. Williams cradles the guitar in his lap to access his sound from a different point of view.

Williams grew up in Virginia on beat and groove music: R&B, hip-hop, the softer side of jazz. Usually these sounds do not depend on the guitar. Williams therefore experienced something like a revelation when she took over an iteration of the instrument to play “Guitar Hero 2”. Video games put her to the test – and introduced her to heavier, but fairly technical rock and metal sounds.

Williams became “obsessed” with the idea of ​​getting her hands on a real guitar, her head filled with notions of reproducing what she intended to produce by the “shredders”. She soon realized that this type of guitar playing was not for her. “My fingers just haven’t moved that fast that way,” she said.

Niklas Sundin, best known as a founding member and former guitarist of Swedish metal titans Dark Tranquility, has released a brand new EP with his ever-changing and exciting solo project Mitochomdrial Sun.

After 15 albums as a metal guitarist, with Mitochomdrial Sun, Sundin began his first public forays into different musical realms in 2020. Following his solo debut last year and critically acclaimed successor Sju Pulsarer at the start of 2021, the multi-instrumentalist has just shared his new EP in its entirety accompanied by an exclusive interview with Sundin’s label, Argonauta Records.

The Bodies And Gold EP features six tracks of dystopian electronic music in a wide variety of moods and is now available on all digital platforms. The already sold out limited edition vinyl version is (as those who pre-ordered it already know) somewhat delayed due to the supply chain issues currently facing the entire vinyl pressing industry. Stream Mitochomdrial Sun’s New EP Below

The heart of Mitochomdrial Sun’s music is electronic and instrumental, ranging from quiet meditations on space and time to relentless cosmic storms; from a sonic journey to fast, urgent and chaotic songs of the darkest black metal sound, but Mitochomdrial Sun is full of emotionally charged melodies and atmospheric soundscapes hidden beneath the surface. Sitting somewhere between the contemplative and brooding debut album and the intense Sju Pulsarer, every song on this brand new EP – from the cinematic, slow opening to the industrial closing track at full throttle – differs greatly from one another in style, but share the same vibe: dystopian and cold, but organic and sometimes hopeful. To purchase your digital copy of the Bodies and Gold EP, visit the Mitochomdrial Sun Bandcamp here.

List of songs from the EP Bodies And Gold:

“Sic Transit Anima Mundi”

Video footage filmed by fans of STRIPEThe September 9 concert in Green Bay, Wisconsin can be seen below.

STRIPE guitarist Oz Fox is on the sidelines of the group’s current dates as he recovers from the first of his brain surgeries to treat one of the tumors found in his head three years ago. Replace him at shows is Howie simon (JEFF SCOTT SOTO, GRAHAM BONNET).

Before the Green Bay concert, STRIPE leader michael sweet took to his social media to write: “Just to clarify a few things: Howie simon fill for ounce for the shows we have booked this year. He’s been doing an absolutely amazing job and obviously ever since WING and YOU’RE HERE also use it for their fill dates. As easy as that. If we didn’t feel comfortable using Howie we wouldn’t. We do and we are honored to have it. Plus this band has never sounded better than we do now with [bassist Perry Richardson].

“People (and I mean very few people) can complain because we don’t have the original programming but Pear is the cream of the crop. Personally, musically and spiritually. Period. He took this group to new heights and we couldn’t be more proud to have found and had him.

“We’re about to play (tonight) having not played live in almost 2 years and with hardly any rehearsals. Am I apologizing? Damn no! I’m just saying we rehearse. as we go along and try to find our groove. We would do the exact same thing if ounce was there now.

“So go out and enjoy the shows. We’re just happy and humbled to even be able to perform in this absolutely crazy world. The music world has been hit the hardest and continues to take blow after blow. To be able to play on a stage. during the most volatile periods of our lives is more than miraculous. It is heavenly “.

Early August, ounce said he thought “it would be better” for him to take the rest of the touring year “for a solid recovery time” after the surgery. Another big project is coming for STRIPE in January and I would really like to be in my best shape for the task, “he wrote on social media.” With all of that in mind, I strongly encouraged my brothers in the group to continue with concerts booked to come in the coming months with our dear friend Howie simon covering my duties. Howie is an amazing guitarist and singer and I trust him to completely “destroy” me for these upcoming dates! So I trust you to welcome him with open arms so that the group can continue to work in my absence. “

Fox‘tumors – one in his ear and the other in the back of his brain – were discovered when he suffered his first seizure in August 2018 while performing with SINNERS OF THE CITY OF SIN at Harrah’s in Las Vegas. Over the past two and a half years, both tumors had grown and posed a serious health risk for the guitarist, who turned 60 in June. Specifically, the tumor behind the ear, if it continued to grow, could have caused hearing loss, problems with balance, vision and spine, while the tumor behind the ear ouncehis brain was in the area where the left side of his arms, hands and body works. Removing it could have affected upper left motor function and the potential ability to recognize faces and objects.

Last October, Fox was briefly hospitalized after suffering another massive seizure.

In the following weeks Foxinitial seizure of August 2018, STRIPE toured Australia and Japan as a trio, then recruited Simon fill while Fox could not take the road.

Just to clear up a few things:

Howie Simon is replacing Oz for the shows we’ve booked this year. He makes a…
