Arthurs was diagnosed with tonsil cancer in April, revealing plans to take a break from guitar playing with Gallagher in order to receive treatment. In June this year, the guitarist completed his treatment, and now, according to a recently released update, the cancer is gone.

Bonehead’s update reads:

“Dave Grohl is the heart of the Foo Fighters, but Taylor Hawkins was the rock star,” read the Times headline after Hawkins died on March 25 at the age of 50. Six months later, those feelings ring truer than ever.

Tonight at the Kia Forum, the Foo Fighters and the Hawkins family will perform the second all-star tribute concert to the late drummer, some 50 miles from Laguna Beach, where Hawkins began banging on a kit and dreaming of rock stardom. . On September 3 at Wembley Stadium in London, rockers such as Liam Gallagher, Josh Homme, Wolfgang Van Halen, Travis Barker and Paul McCartney all paid tribute to the music; Hawkins’ son Shane, a powerhouse drummer like his father, joined the Foos on “My Hero” and brought the crowd to tears, live and watching via stream around the world.

Guests expected tonight include Stewart Copeland, Miley Cyrus, Joan Jett, Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson, Brian May, Alanis Morissette, Mark Ronson, Gene Simmons, Nikki Sixx, Chad Smith and Roger Taylor. Although the Kia Forum show is not streaming, The Times’ Mikael Wood will report live just before 7 p.m.

6:43 p.m. Greetings from the Kia Forum, where thousands of Foo Fighters fans rush into the arena ahead of what promises to be a long, emotional evening. Outside the building, people write messages for Hawkins on sticky notes and attach them to a large mural. Among the tributes: “Fly on, Hawk” and “F— yeah! You inspired a generation.

Los Angeles fan Adriana Cuellar said she’s been a Hawkins fan since she was 14. “And I’m 41 now – do the math.” The news of Hawkins’ death came as a shock, she said. But tonight she can’t wait to see “Foo Fighters return to the stage, still playing as a band – continuing without Taylor but keeping her memory alive.”

7 p.m. The Foo Fighters have a history in the Forum. I remember seeing the band here in 2015, shortly after Dave Grohl broke his leg and was playing shows sitting in a “Game of Thrones” style chair. That night, Hawkins said he had come to see Boston in 1986, while Grohl told the crowd that guitarist Pat Smear’s first concert was at The Forum: a 1972 Rolling Stones concert with Stevie Wonder. in the first part.

7:06 p.m. The lights went out and Grohl’s 16-year-old daughter, Violet, took the stage for a rendition of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” (via Jeff Buckley), accompanied only by an electric guitarist. A warm welcome for an evening of mourning and gratitude.

7:13 p.m. The Foo Fighters are on stage. “Welcome to the Los Angeles Taylor Hawkins tribute concert,” announces Dave Grohl. “It’s hometown s—, so you gotta do it hard.” Grohl says the idea of ​​tonight’s show is “to spend time in [Hawkins’] musical spirit, which could be a pretty terrifying place” and to “celebrate this person who touched our lives”.

7:16 p.m. Backed by the Foo Fighters, with Travis Barker on drums, Joan Jett sings — well, growls — The Runaways’ “Cherry Bomb.”

7:20 p.m. Foo Fighters and the Forum warned people that tonight’s show would start on time, and the message clearly got through: In nearly two decades of gigging in Los Angeles, I’ve never seen this place this packed before. 8 p.m.

7:26 p.m. Hawkins’ 16-year-old son Shane just introduced Chevy Metal, his dad’s classic rock cover band. “I’m really nervous,” Shane says, calling the band “one of the best f– cover bands I’ve ever heard in my life.” They rip Led Zeppelin’s “Rock and Roll”.

7:31 p.m. Jon Davison, who sings in the current version of veteran prog-rock band Yes, has joined Chevy Metal and is hitting everything the high notes of “Owner of a Lonely Heart”.

7:38 p.m. For Chevy Metal’s final track – and I have to say they were joined throughout their set by Foo Fighters producer Greg Kurstin on the keys – Kesha sings David Bowie’s “Heroes” while wearing a shimmering silver cape . A big swing, and she connects – wardrobe malfunction and all. “I don’t want to shed light on this situation,” she says, “but Taylor would have loved for my ts to fall.”

7:46 p.m. from Hawkins other Another band, the Coattail Riders, play originals — including, uh, “Range Rover Bitch” — with lead vocals from no-one brother Justin Hawkins of British glam-rock band The Darkness.

7:56 p.m. Justin Hawkins introduces “one of Taylor’s favorite musicians – a bass behemoth, the man with the thumbs of glory”: Level 42’s Mark King, who slaps the ever-living devil of the funk band’s “Something About You”- British pop with the Coattail Riders.

8:04 p.m. Justin Hawkins brought out Darkness drummer Rufus Taylor for the band’s 2003 classic “I Believe in a Thing Called Love” – ​​a pop-metal banger that sounds like it was written to fulfill a Dave Grohl mission.

8:10 p.m. “We’re just getting started,” says Dave Grohl introducing Joe Walsh and the James Gang.

8:28 p.m. Smiling like a kid who opened his Christmas presents early, Grohl sits on drums with Walsh and the James Gang for the ’70s riff-tastic jam “Funk #49.”

8:31 p.m. Walsh, speaking in his cave genius cadence, recounts a time when Taylor Hawkins asked him if all the crazy stories about him on the road were true.

“Yes,” he answered.

8:38 p.m. “Taylor was friends with every f— musician on earth,” Grohl says as he brings Mark Ronson onstage. And as if to prove it, Ronson – the producer and “Uptown Funk” hitmaker – does a very fluid rendition of Gerry Rafferty’s “Right Down the Line” with a band consisting of Grohl, Roger Manning of Jellyfish and Andrew Wyatt of Miike Snow.

8:47 p.m.. “We are Them Crooked Vultures,” says Josh Homme, flanked by Grohl, Alain Johannes and John Paul Jones of Led Zeppelin. “It’s an Elton John song. I don’t know why we’re playing it, but we’re about to. Then the long-mothballed power-grunge outfit slips into ‘Goodbye Yellow Brick Road’ .

8:53 p.m. “Knowing Taylor for over twenty years, he would have loved that,” Homme says before leading Them Crooked Vultures through “Long Slow Goodbye,” a song by his main band, Queens of the Stone Age.

9:04 p.m. A rare turn on bass from Grohl as he leads a band with Justin Hawkins of The Darkness, drummer Josh Freese and guitarist Wolfgang Van Halen – son of the late Eddie Van Halen – through a fevered take on the pop-metal classic” Panama”.

9:08 p.m. Van Halen’s cult following continues with a faithfully sordid take on “Hot for Teacher,” with Justin Hawkins floating across the stage in a hot pink Sunset Strip-era Diamond Dave bodysuit.

9:18 p.m. Foos guitarist Pat Smear says he came to the Forum in 1983 to see “that band” – which turns out to be Def Leppard. Now, the British pop-metal veterans unleash “Rock of Ages” with the help of several Foos, including Grohl and Smear on guitar.

Bonus: Here’s the audio of Def Lep playing “Rock of Ages” at that 1983 Forum gig:

9:22 p.m. Joining the party – a peroxide blonde to match Def Lep’s Joe Elliott – was joined by Miley Cyrus for a jaw-dropping “Photography”.

9:27 p.m. Dave Grohl: “You can’t really play a gig in LA without these guys jamming with you.”

These guys = Mötley Crüe’s Nikki Sixx and a shirtless, crazy-eyed Tommy Lee, plus vocalist Derek Day, for perhaps the definitive ’80s hair-metal ballad, “Home Sweet Home.”

9:43 p.m. The Cars’ Elliot Easton now plays with the Foo Fighters and Josh Homme on the New Wave classic “Shake It Up.” Gen Xers in the house are pump. Gen Z-ers are confused.

“Just What I Needed” sounds very, very good for this Gen X-er. Shout out to the female backing vocalists of the Foo Fighters, aided here by Violet Grohl.

9:49 p.m. A spontaneous “Taylor Hawkins” chant rises in the crowd.

9:55 p.m. “It’s like a revolving door of rock heroes tonight,” Grohl says, bringing out Pink, Nancy Wilson of Heart and drummer Jon Theodore (currently of Queens of the Stone Age and formerly of Mars Volta) for a thunderous version. from Heart’s “Barracuda.

Pink. East. Murder. This.

10:07 p.m. Grohl tells the crowd about his first encounter with Hawkins — they first met backstage at an almost acoustic KROQ-FM Christmas — before introducing drummer Stewart Copeland, who joins Foo Fighters for a punky blitz at through the police’s “Next to You”.

10:16 p.m. Hardcore Hawkins fans know the drummer played for Alanis Morissette before Grohl hired him for the Foo Fighters, and now Morissette sings his immortal “You Oughta Know” with the Foos and guest drummer Chad Smith of Red Hot Chili. Peppers, who is carrying a baseball upside down. cap (obviously) and a black Bad Company t-shirt.

10:20 p.m. The musicians who may have shaped Hawkins’ life the most – Grohl and Morissette – share a long, deep embrace before Morissette leaves the stage.

10:25 p.m. “I have to say – this show compared to the London show, this f— s— rock a little louder,” Grohl told the crowd before a true hard-rock supergroup hit the stage.

Skid Row’s Sebastian Bach, Black Sabbath’s Geezer Butler, and Metallica’s Lars Ulrich rip Sabbath’s “Supernaut” with help from various Foos.

10:38 p.m. Jack Black is on stage in his “Jumanji” movie mode with a crazy beard to introduce Rush.

10:51 p.m. Rush — minus his own drummer, Neil Peart, who died in 2020 — plays “Working Man” with Chad Smith and “YYZ” with Tool’s Danny Carey. We have officially entered the long instrumental portion of the show.

11:09 p.m. A handful of grunge survivors — including Soundgarden’s Matt Cameron and Nirvana’s Kim Thayil and Krist Novoselic — do Soundgarden’s “The Day I Tried to Live” and “Black Hole Sun” with the ravaged lead vocals of Pretty Reckless’ Taylor Momsen ( and TV shows “Gossip Girl”), who also took part in a tribute to the late Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell at The Forum in 2019.

11:13 p.m. “I haven’t prepared a speech for this part of the show,” Grohl says, “So I’ll just say: Ladies and gentlemen, Queen.”

11:22 p.m. Queen — that’s guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor, plus members of Foo Fighters — open with “We Will Rock You,” featuring The Darkness’ Justin Hawkins doing his cutest Freddie Mercury in an emerald green bodysuit.

11:32 p.m. Pink is back on stage with Queen to sing “Somebody to Love,” which Taylor Hawkins used to sing on the Foo Fighters live show. “I want to hear everyone here!” she says to the crowd, and she’s about to hear that.

Excerpt from the November/December 2022 issue of Acoustic guitar | By Happy Traum

I first heard the traditional gospel song “There’s a Shining Side Somewhere” many years ago, played and sung by the wonderful fingerstyle guitarist (and AG contributor) Mary Flower. We were sitting swapping songs at a guitar camp, and I was struck by the positive and upbeat message the song conveyed.

Although I didn’t know the song until Mary showed it to me, a quick Google search revealed that it had been recorded by a group of great musicians over the years, including Reverend Gary Davis, Ry Cooder and Jorma Kaukonen, as well as quite a few gospel choirs. I immediately went home and started working on my own fingerpicking arrangement, which ended up being the title track of my latest album.

My take on “There’s a Bright Side Somewhere” contains many arranging concepts I’ve used throughout my musical life – creating lively bass lines, finding interesting and varied chord choices, adding guitar fills between vocal phrases, and more. In this lesson, I’ll explain how I do all of this, culminating in a full 16-bar solo on the song. I hope you will be inspired by these ideas and use them in your own style of composition and arrangement.

Strong bass lines and interesting chords

For me, one of the secrets to getting a good arrangement is to maintain a solid bass line. I use a thumb to get a clear, loud sound on my low strings. A good bass line can suggest interesting tracks to reharmonize the basic progressions. For instance, Example 1 depicts the harmonic structure of “There’s a Bright Side Somewhere” in its most basic form. Rather than playing the C chord for the first four bars, I add the vi (Am), V/V (D7/F#) and V (G7), to get a nice moving bassline (C, A, F#, G , C), as shown in Example 2. (Note that in the video above, I’m using a capo at the second fret, which makes the music sound a step higher, in the key of D major.)

Sometimes I look for opportunities to play chromatic basslines to add spice, like in Example 3, based on bars 5 to 8 of “There’s a Bright Side Somewhere”, moving in semitones from the first F fret on the F chord to the third G fret on the C chord. A beautiful passing chord, the jazzy F#dim7 (F# AC Eb) in bar 2 is very similar to the D7/F# in Ex. 1. The only difference is that it contains the first Eb fret, rather than the open D string. Playing the C chord in bar 3 with the fifth (G) on the bass, rather than the root (C) is what allows me to get that free bass movement here.

I use the same chord progression in bars 9-11 of the form (Example 4). At the end of bar 11, I add an E7 with the fifth (B) in the bass, which leads gently to the Am in the next bar. I love using harmonic surprises like this. For the last line of the form (bars 13-16), I play something similar to Ex. 1, but with the chords falling in different places, starting with C/G, as shown in Example 5. The most important thing in all of the examples above is to keep your thumb moving smoothly, because the bassline plays such an important role.

Lick and fill

To add sparkle to an arrangement and change the texture, I like to play a series of licks on the treble strings in the spaces between the sung lines. There are many possible variations on this theme, and I try to mix them up so it doesn’t seem repetitive. Example 6 shows how I could approach bars 1-4 of “There’s a bright side somewhere”, coming out of the I(C) chord, and Example 7 does the same with bars 5–8. When you learn a song, I highly recommend creating your own treble and memorizing it. This way, you’ll always have lots of different options at your fingertips, which can help your performance or recording sound fresh and inspired.

Solo Secrets

Example 8 connects all the concepts of this lesson – creating strong bass lines, reharmonizing progressions, and mixing and matching single-note fills – with a full solo on the 16-bar form of “There’s a Bright Side Somewhere”. I never play a solo exactly the same way twice; the transcript captures what I improvised in the demo video, but it’s fairly representative of my approach.

This solo is a little more difficult than the other examples, as it moves between the patterns in the open position and the passages up the neck. In bars 5 and 9, for example, I play the F chord in fifth position, with the fifth (A) as the lowest note; in bars 6 and 10, I fret a diminished seventh shape in seventh position for an Adim7, sliding it to the fourth fret for F#dim7. (Interestingly, these two chords share the same four notes: A, C, Eb, and F#/Gb.)

To get a good idea of ​​some variations on this solo, be sure to listen to the version on my album, which I play a bit more uptempo. Then use the solos as templates to personalize that song or any other traditional song.

OK, now I’ve revealed most of my secrets. I hope they help you, whether you’re learning “There’s a Bright Side Somewhere” or creating arrangements of other traditional songs. Enjoy!

Ozzy Osbourne has expressed his disappointment with Black Sabbath’s latest album, 13.

“To be perfectly honest, I haven’t really received payment for the album,” Osbourne admitted in a chat with stereogum. “Although Rick Rubin was a good friend of mine, I wasn’t really…I was just singing. It was like stepping back in time, but it wasn’t a glorious time. Although Geezer [Butler] wrote a lot of lyrics for me, which he’s very, very good at. It was not an overwhelming experience for me.

The 2013 LP was Black Sabbath’s first studio album in 18 years, and the first with Osbourne since 1978. Never say die! However 13 was a commercial success, it’s clear the band were less than thrilled with its creation. Ozzy’s sentiments on the LP echo those of Butler, who previously criticized Rubin’s involvement in 13.

“It was a weird experience, especially being told to forget you’re a heavy metal band,” the bassist explained during an interview with SiriusXM earlier this year. “It was the first thing [that Rubin] told us. He played us our very first album, and he said, “Think back to when there was no heavy metal or something, and pretend this is the next album” – this which is ridiculous. think.”

Although several members of the group admit their disappointment 13Ozzy has little interest in making another album with Sabbath.

“I would like to say it’s completely over,” said the prince of darkness stereogum. “I think it’s time. The only thing I really regret, to be honest, is that Bill Ward didn’t play on the album. It wasn’t really a Black Sabbath album. I’m not saying that one day we won’t all walk into a room and find the perfect Black Sabbath album. But I will say, [13] was not recorded as Black Sabbath recorded records. We were back to where we had taken over, when someone else had full control of our recording. What we haven’t done since Flight. 4 From.”

After releasing ‘Azwan’, an album about our unity and interconnectedness in the midst of a unifying global crisis, world-renowned French-Algerian acoustic guitar master, singer and songwriter Pierre Bensusan returns to the United States and the Canada, completing the second leg of his 2022 North American tour. One of his first stops will be in Salt Lake City where on Sunday evening, September 18, The Black Box at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center will host him for a concert.

Bensusan says of this tour: “Even if I loved staying at home, near Paris, for two years; playing, writing, taking the time, stopping running, sometimes locked up in Paradise… I felt a real relief to be able to play live again. The first part of my North American tour this spring left me with an immense feeling of gratitude towards the public who came to the concerts. There is nothing stronger than being together around live music, especially when many were entering a concert hall for the first time in two years.

Also, in Las Vegas, I met my new friend, Donny Osmondafter playing on his last album and there was a lot of emotion.

After spending the last three months in France, I’m pulling out all the stops and embarking on the second leg of a mega-tour of over 60 gigs and guitar workshops, which will take my stage manager/sound engineer, Xaina Lerner, and myself across the entire northern part of the United States and southern Canada, from the west coast to the east coast.

I look forward to finally seeing you again and thank you so much for your continued support and for all the inspiration, light and strength you give me.”

ABOUT STONE:

When Michael Hedges title one of his compositions “Bensusan”, you know that the inspiration behind it must be special and Pierre Bensusan certainly is. Guitarists from Leo Kottke to Larry Corryel, including Tuck Andress, Tommy Emmanuel, Mark Knopfler, Andrew YorkAndy Timmons at Steve Lukather… sang his praises, and Steve Vai released three Bensusan albums on his Favored Nations label. And it’s not just guitarists who are so inspired by Pierre’s music, like a recent studio collaboration with him on Donny OsmondThe last album of “Start Again” will show it.

If world music means the fusion of traditional, contemporary, jazz, classical and pop music, then Bensusan is one of the most eloquent world music musicians of our time. Pianist in his beginnings then self-taught on the guitar, the originality of his style makes him one of the greatest current guitarists and composers for the instrument. Also called “The Prince of DADGAD”, his story is far from trivial and it is on stage that this artist won his stripes: among others, the Rose d’Or at the Montreux Festival, and being elected Best Guitarist of the World Music by the readers of Guitar Player Magazine! His triple album “Encore” won the Grand Prix of the Independent Music Awards in the category Best live album… Since his first performances in 1974 in France, the guitarist has sold half a million albums and given thousands of concerts in around the world, both solo and through numerous collaborations.

Born in French Algeria, Pierre Bensusan is an adventurer of unusual lands. His almost “sacred” music is an intimate and orchestral hymn, a solo crossover on a multi-shell Lowden guitar subjected to the natural elements with sound molecules and fingertips on an ebony fingerboard for open tuning – a unique technique and transparent, under the fingers of an adventurous pilgrim. Big emotion guaranteed.
