Awesome New Bands

New postby Bud » Sat May 30, 2009 11:59 pm

Well here's something I never expected!

Chickenfoot

Who the hell is Chickenfoot? See if these names ring any bells:

Joe Satriani (of Joe Satriani fame)
Sammy Hagar (Yes, Sammy)
Michael Abthony (Van Halen's bass player)
Chad Smith (Red Hot Chilli Peppers' drummer)

Dig these:
Rockin': "Soap on a Rope"
Balad: "Learning to fall"

:rockin:

Them Crooked Vultures

Lead Singer/Guitar Player: Josh Homme, from Queens of the Stone Age
Drummer: Dave Grohl, Foo Fighters front man (and ex Nirvana drummer)
Bass Player: John Paul Jones, yes... that John Paul Jones

The're playing in Indio on April 16th (a Friday) and in Vegas the day after.

Anybody up for a road trip? :mrgreen:

I thought he died 200 years ago!
Jesus F***!
He's hung around this long and become a BASS PLAYER!?!

Screw Darwin, I want what he's drinking!

Guess again, my rock-n-roll challenged friend. Here's a hint. The 2nd symbol in this series of "runes" represents him.

Bill told me.

And, I would never have guessed it.
I know the name Def Leopard, but I
have trouble identifing their tunes
from musicals that I haven't listened
to also.

My Hard Rock exposure is pale,
on the "How tan are you scale?"
which equates Hard Rock exposure
to the suns rays on skin, that is
.
Bill, is an Arizonan and Bud, well,
Bud is a reverse Micheal Jackson,
before the first nose job. Not during the
extreme drug addict stage.

Def Leopard did musicals? :think:

Please tell me you know who John, Paul, George, and Ringo are. :(

Jeff, I said Led Zeppelin. At least that's who I *thought* those symbols were for. Could have sworn that "Zoso" was Page's tag.

[edit: having checked I see I am correct and now a bit confused by Bud's Beatles reference]

The Beatles were even more famous than Zeppelin. I was just checking to see if Jeff had listened to anything but John Denver for the last 40 years. :wink:

I believe I can Identify more of the Fab Fours tunes then you
can Bud. And, i'll wager Queen's also.

But, Led Zepplin and Def leopard are not well know by me.

Most of the Hard Rock Bands don't appeal to me, truely.
I am more interested in lyrics then melody, usually.

That would come from my Choral and Clarinet background.
Never the lead, always back up.

It's like sex, if it doesn't mean anything to me, then it's not worth
the time.

:huh: :huh: :huh:

Sex doesn't mean anything to you, so it's not worth your time?

:huh: :huh: :huh:

I worry about you some times.

Dallas (and KUPD) just turned me on to a good new band with a very "Alice in Chains" sound.

Some of their stuff on YouTube.com

Here's the most incredible album review I've ever read.

The Black Keys are two guys from the American mid-west, hard as it to believe that only two people make this thick, rich audio gumbo. They play the blues, post-modern blues with licks of psychedelia and rockabilly, white mid-west blues, punk blues. They write original music, even though you'll swear some of those songs have got to be fifty or sixty years old. Can two white kids from Akron, Ohio play the blues with anything like conviction? Oh, yeah.
Patrick Carney plays drums, and he plays them heavy, the kick-drum thuds into your stomach, the cymbals are muted like they're coated with years of cigarette smoke from greasy clubs and roadhouses. This guy ain't a showoff drummer, he's a hold down the groove until you find yourself breathing in time sort of drummer.

Dan Auerbach plays guitar like he's stringing barbed wire, through an old Ampeg amplifier that is one gig short of meltdown. And he sings like he's done time in Mississippi jails, impossible, this guy is in his early twenties, where did he get the chops to stream that kind of pain through his voice? Can he write a blues lyric? "She want to get out the car, in the middle of the road, her screamin' and hollerin', it's getting mighty old," yup, he can.

This album reeks of cigarette smoke and beer and gasoline fumes, the whole tone reminds me of Exile on Main Street, it's gritty and earthy, three a.m. blues when the band is past caring about the audience and just playing their pain away.

So, The Black Keys, with a guitarist who sounds like he's channeling Elmore James and a drummer who sounds like an idling Chevy 327 with bad lifters are now on Fat Possum records, the real deal. Their music is thick enough to chew, it tips its hat to all the right forefathers(...).


It's from Amazon.com for an album by The Black Keys called "Thickfreakness".
