10 Musical Artists Never Featured In Guitar Hero Or Rock Band https://linkwraylegend.com/10-musical-artists-never-featured-in-guitar-hero-or-rock-band/ Fri, 13 May 2022 14:05:00 +0000 https://linkwraylegend.com/10-musical-artists-never-featured-in-guitar-hero-or-rock-band/ Guitar Hero was launched in 2005 and finally gave music fans the chance to be rock stars without having to go through the aggravating pains of learning an instrument.

Guitar Hero was launched in 2005 and finally gave music fans the chance to be rock stars without having to go through the aggravating pains of learning an instrument. Originally developed by Harmonix, development of the series was transferred to Neversoft in 2007. Harmonix then moved on to Rock Band, who developed the Guitar Hero premise by adding the rest of the band on lead guitar. (Unfortunately, Guitar Hero is still attached to the Activision name, a company that has faced multiple accusations of abuse from current and former employees. Hopefully that actually changes in the near future.)

RELATED: The Hardest Guitar Hero Songs To Master

But both series were good-humoured fun and allowed instrumentalists and non-instrumentalists alike to celebrate their love of music. Everyone from Megadeth and Iron Maiden to Franz Ferdinand and Interpol have been available to play at one point or another, but who are some musical acts notably absent from the show?

GAME VIDEO OF THE DAY

ten Post-Oasis Noel and Liam

Oases were no doubt the biggest band in the world in the mid-1990s, and they are featured in the Guitar Hero World Tour base game with Some Might Say, out of their (What’s The Story) Morning Glory? LP. Additional songs were added via DLC.

So it’s odd that neither Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, nor Beady Eye, or Liam Gallagher’s solo material appear in the Guitar Hero or Rock Band video games. The White Stripes and Jack White are both featured, and Blur and Gorillaz (both directed by Damon Albarn) make appearances, so it’s not like the games are averse to featuring the same people in different guises.

9 King Gizzard and the Lizard Sorcerer

This Aussie rock band might be a bit too specialized for a game that features more traditional bands, which might explain why they’re not in any of the games, but they’re an amazing band that the rock genre needs today today. It could also be that when they released their first album in 2012, they were just a little too new. Rock Band’s last main entry was released in 2015, after all.

The thing is, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard are so prolific that when the latest Rock Band game launched, the outfit was about to release its seventh album. For those keeping track, that’s seven albums in just three years. It’s not like rhythm games lack hardware.

8 oxygen

The self-proclaimed “21st Century Ambassadors of Peace and Magic” love rock and roll, and nowhere is that clearer than on their album of the same name, which they released in 2013. Songs like San Francisco, On Blue Mountain, and No Destruction have great potential for any rhythm game, and the duo have a classic rock sound that appeals to gamers of the series.

Alas, this gem of modern rock has never appeared on either Guitar Hero or Rock Band. They got one more chance to appear in a main game with their 2014 release…And Star Power, but that never materialized.

7 The moody blues

While Guitar Hero and Rock Band feature their fair share of more modern rock acts such as Limp Bizkit and Linkin Park, the games also strongly flatter those into classic rock. The Beatles have their own Rock Band game, and the likes of King Crimson, Scorpions, and Fleetwood Mac are easily found throughout the series.

RELATED: The Rock Band’s Hardest Songs, Ranked

Not so with the Moody Blues, perhaps best remembered for Nights In White Satin. And maybe it’s a song that’s not exciting enough for a rhythm game, but it’s not like they just do ballads. Ride My See Saw and I’m Just A Singer (In A Rock And Roll Band) are two upbeat, game-friendly Moody tracks.


6 Madonna

Surprisingly, the second best-selling artist of the 1980s is not present in any of the main games of the Guitar Hero or Rock Band series. There seems to be something about the 80s, however, that is puzzling. Phil Collins, the third best-selling artist of the decade, is in no game either. U2, at number four, was not added to the series until Rock Band 4, the last entry in the series mainline.

Whatever the reason, there’s a weird blockage about 1980s bestsellers. As for Madonna, sadly, it doesn’t look like you’ll be “touched for the very first time” anytime soon.


5 Electric Light Orchestra

According to John Lennon, if the Beatles had stayed in the 1970s, they might have sounded like Jeff Lynne and his Electric Light Orchestra. And yes, there is a lot of “beatism” in their music, especially in songs like 10538 Overture.

But Lennon wasn’t the only Beatle in love with what Lynne was doing. George Harrison convinced him to join him on stage and in the recording studio with the Traveling Wilburys, and Lynne even produced the Beatles’ reunion songs in the mid-90s. There’s a whole Rock Band game for the Beatles . How about an ELO song?

4 The Supremes

As much of a headache as Madonna and any of the aforementioned 80s snubs, the Supremes were massive in the 1960s, coming in between the Beach Boys and the Rolling Stones when it comes to record sales.

Why is it? It’s hard to say, but maybe the classic Motown sound isn’t Guitar Hero-y or Rock Band-y enough for the developers’ tastes. That would make sense, if it weren’t for Motown star Marvin Gaye featured in the Band Hero spin-off game. And while Band Hero isn’t in the main line of games, it still shows that Motown has a viable sound for these rhythm titles.


3 ABBA

That’s right, there are no ABBA songs in the Guitar Hero and Rock Band games. However, you can find ABBA in the game ABBA: You Can Dance, which was released for the Nintendo Wii in 2011. This game may control all of ABBA’s video game rights.

RELATED: Best Karaoke Games

If you’d rather not be a dancing queen but still looking to get your ABBA video game fix, you can check out SingStar ABBA, a karaoke game for Playstation 2 and 3, released in 2008.

2 pink floyd

“Wait…Pink Floyd isn’t in Guitar Hero or Rock Band? But I just played…no. Really?” Yes! Really. Any memory you have of playing Pink Floyd in Guitar Hero or Rock Band is fake unless you downloaded or created custom tracks.

The British band behind some of the greatest albums of the 1970s is nowhere to be found. Decades of internal fighting could be a factor here. Roger Waters and David Gilmour, the two oldest members of Pink Floyd, can’t agree on anything. It could be that internal feuds kept the band from appearing in either rhythm game (perhaps they’re not “artistic” enough for one?) , because the developers undoubtedly tried to integrate them. Whatever the reason, it’s a missing entry to make you say “how I wish you were here”.

1 Led Zeppelin

If there’s one indomitable white whale in guitar-based rhythm games, it’s Led Zeppelin. The developers of the games Guitar Hero and Rock Band have reportedly tried for years to get Jimmy Page and company to acquiesce to their wishes for inclusion, but it seems Page is specifically opposed to such frivolous nonsense.

In fact, Led Zeppelin has a long history of keeping their music separate from other media. It took years before they started licensing their music for movies and TV shows, and they resisted putting their music on iTunes until 2007. For fans of rock music and rhythm games , Led Zeppelin’s absence may be the biggest heartbreaker of them all.

“We always talked about getting together and playing and we never really did. Then the pandemic happened.”

A group of mums from Milton had a very unique COVID-19 project – to start a rock band. A year later, they starred on “The Kelly Clarkson Show.”

Since April 2021, the group of working mothers, with careers ranging from farmer to college professor, have been practicing their guitar riffs and high notes in one of their members’ basements. When they could all find the time, of course.

Shortly after starting, their hard work paid off.

Joanna Weiss, Leila Mitchell, Heather Shaw, Martha Kennedy and Imge Ceranoglu performed at Milton Porchfest singing “We Got the Beat” and other classics.

But that wasn’t the end of their journey to stardom. Weiss, a former boston globe writer, wrote a first-person article for Boston Magazine titled “For those moms who rock.”

She detailed how this group of 45 to 55-year-old mothers saw their husbands, some of whom are professional musicians, and their now-teenage children making music and finally decided it was their turn.

The Boston Magazine article caught the attention of Kelly Clarkson’s team.

The band told Boston Magazine in a subsequent interview they were training one day when an email popped up. It was from “The Kelly Clarkson Show” asking the band to make an appearance in honor of Mother’s Day.

Weiss told Boston Magazine that she received the email on a Thursday, set up a Zoom meeting that day, and on Tuesday the group was on a plane.

On the show, the group explained that the name “The Lazy Susans” comes from the idea of ​​the group singing and switching roles, much like the rotation of a real lazy susan.

“It’s a bit of a pun on the fact that we’re not lazy at all. And a little about Suze and Karen,” said Leila Mitchell, who plays percussion and runs a marketing and design business.

“We always talked about getting together and playing and we never really did,” Weiss said on the show. “Then the pandemic happened.”

Weiss said the highlight of the experience was performing with guitarist Jaco Caraco and musical director Jason Halbert.

“At that point, I had been playing guitar in an organized way for eight months. And here I play with these Grammy-winning musicians who have played with Kelly Clarkson, Miley Cyrus and Elton John,” she told Boston Magazine.

If one performance isn’t enough for fans in the Boston area, the band’s next gig will be at the Midway Cafe in Jamaica Plain on Saturday.

A Twitter user posted their response to the segment.

The band’s SoundCloud is located here.

Say Sue Me: South Korean indie rock band on their awesome new album https://linkwraylegend.com/say-sue-me-south-korean-indie-rock-band-on-their-awesome-new-album/ Tue, 10 May 2022 14:21:37 +0000 https://linkwraylegend.com/say-sue-me-south-korean-indie-rock-band-on-their-awesome-new-album/ Sumi Choi’s origin story begins quietly. “I could barely speak when I was four,” she says. “But I did sing, and I will sing this very sad song.

Sumi Choi’s origin story begins quietly. “I could barely speak when I was four,” she says. “But I did sing, and I will sing this very sad song. I was a sad child. There’s a pleasant candor that pervades a conversation with Choi, 34, and the rest of Busan, South Korea-based quartet Say Sue Me. Even through Zoom, and with the help of an interpreter, he is evident that the comfortable surf rock that has brought them an international following is rooted in their attractive, laid-back attitudes.

Choi discovered the music of guitarist and songwriter Byungkyu Kim, drummer Semin Kang and bassist Jaeyoung Ha ten years ago in his mid-twenties. “I was a huge fan of them,” she recalls. “One day they asked me if I wanted to be their singer, I accepted.” It was perfect: Shortly after Choi joined the band as a vocalist and guitarist, Kim says, “it became easier to make music.” In the years since, Say Sue Me has released two studio albums, with 2018 where we were together taking them far beyond the borders of their small independent scene.

On their third album, The last thing left (released May 13), the group – which now consists of Kim, 37; Choi; drummer Sungwan Lim, 34; and bassist Jaeyoung Kim, 25, continue to hone their unassuming rock music, adding a more nuanced emotional charge to their songs than ever before. “The feelings for this album run inexplicably deep,” Choi says. “We’ve always been sincere, and we can’t compare the depth with the previous album, but the difference is that we kind of know what we’re doing, and we want to provide light energy rather than sadness and complaints. … It’s not easy, but we tried to do it.

These 10 songs have a distinct lived quality. Even the instrumental opener, “The Memory of the Time,” has the aura of opening a beer after a long, hard day: warm, well-deserved comfort. It’s no surprise that such patient and evocative music comes from such a tight-knit band. When asked what they like about each other, Jaeyoung Kim says Choi “really cares about people,” while Lim appreciates the “youthful energy” Jaeyoung brings to the group. Choi notes that her band members are all good listeners: “Not being talkative is a good thing,” she laughs. Joyful hand drum “We Look Alike” finds Choi reminiscing about a lover (“When I’m feeling sad/you’re quiet, just listen to me”) to telegraph how simple actions can lead to a symbiotic relationship.

This kind of eternal love – of self and others, romantic or not – is the underlying theme of The last thing left. “When I was troubled by the inexplicably complex feelings about myself and relationships with others,” Choi says, “I felt better when I had only one important thing on my mind. put all the negatives aside and [saw] what [was] left at the end: This is love.

Naturally, Choi’s words hit the hardest when she’s fully aware of herself. “Why am I doubting everything just to be me? she sings on “Still Here,” a track whose rambling beat and doo-wop-ish melodies echo Yo La Tengo in their most melancholic and straightforward form. The most upbeat songs also contain small revelations. On the jangly “Around You,” Choi is frustrated and static, feeling the weight of growing old while spending so much of her life in her bedroom. “I’ll be better off when I’m near you,” she says. The cheerfulness and warm harmonies of the song are strange in the atmosphere they evoke: they sound like an endearing friend who wants to cheer you up, emphatically but with compassion.

The last thing left ends on a high note with “George & Janice”, a song that served as a wedding present for the couple who run the band’s UK-based label, Damnably. Byungkyu Kim details the origins of the song: “We were on a European tour, and when we were in Spain, George and Janice came to tell us that they were getting married. After hearing this, Kim immediately found a piano melody in her head, and it became the basis of their love song. Particularly, The last thing left is Say Sue Me’s first album after leaving her Korean label, Electric Muse. “We made this album by ourselves,” Lim says. Choi goes further: “Everything was done with our own intentions.”

Such a need for infinity makes sense for a band that has never been tied to mainstream musical trends in its home country. Since Say Sue Me is not based in Seoul – the capital, where Byungkyu Kim says “everything is concentrated” – they are far removed from the biggest pop stars and underground groups in their country. They also don’t work in the mold of the Korean indie bands of the past three decades. “We listen to a lot of American indie rock music and we wanted to be like them,” Choi said. Kim then adds an adorable sentiment: “Everything in Korea is centered around Seoul, but we were born in Busan and we never left. We can find meaning here. By staying true to themselves, they forged their own sound within their own stage.

When Say Sue Me talks about Busan, they mostly focus on the people. They point out that Seoul is too densely populated for them and wince at its claustrophobic atmosphere. Specifically, the people of Busan share a specific quality that stands out. “They’re really honest,” Choi says. “Sometimes it’s mean, but it’s honest. I like that kind of personality.

This may partly explain why his words are so candid. The hardest song for Choi to write was “Photo of You,” which came after original bassist Jaeyoung Ha left the group — the other band members prefer not to go into details. She notes that the song wasn’t explicitly about him or about him, but about loss and the horror of broken relationships. With ladylike decorum and Brill Building-like drums, Choi sings in a dark tone, “I don’t wanna get used to this feeling / I know every day isn’t for getting ready to say goodbye.”

A sense of true camaraderie is at the heart of Say Sue Me. That’s why Byungkyu Kim finds the songwriting process so difficult: even when he receives input from others, it’s ultimately a lonely process. “But when we get together and record,” he says, “that’s when it’s fun.”

When Say Sue Me practices, they do so at a space near Gwangalli Beach in Busan. If you stand on its crescent-shaped cove, you will be mesmerized by the crystal clear waters lapping on the shore. In the distance, one can see the Gwangan Bridge – four miles of road linking the districts of Suyeong and Haeundae – a sight that drowns out the sense of vast expanse that the East Sea otherwise offers. Turn around and you will see towering skyscrapers, restaurants, bars, hotels.

It is in this humble space, filled with a simultaneous sense of confinement and freedom, that listeners can get a sense of the spirit of Say Sue Me. With every sense of calm, there is a melancholy beneath -lying. This thought is echoed in Choi’s explanation of why she sings mostly in English: “It’s easier to share my feelings, because then I can’t feel the feeling well.”

When Choi finally sings in Korean on “The Dream,” with lyrics about feeling alive, the economical arrangement and tenderness of the guitar solo feels like a sweet moment of respite. The song ends with a crossfade, as if they never wanted this moment to end. This brings to mind the one reason why all the members of Say Sue Me agree that they stayed in Busan all this time: “Everyone we love is here.”

For those about to tip over, Springbank salutes you.

Move over, Jack Black – there’s a new school of rock in session.

A Springbank High School teacher encourages his students to unleash their inner rock star through his own rock school, allowing students to try their hand at playing their favorite rock ‘n’ roll-inspired instrument, learning the ins and outs the outs of belonging to a group, and even performing in front of a live audience.

According to Colin Chrabaszcz, music educator at Springbank Community High School (SCHS), the concept of the rock band class evolved over several years, beginning with a guitar lesson for students interested in playing electric and acoustic guitar.

He said the class was popular among guitar enthusiasts, but added that he felt limited with only one instrument on offer. He then decided to open it up to singers, drummers and bassists to join the ranks.

“You can’t do so much when you only have one instrument,” he said, adding that talented guitarists crave a fuller experience. “You can’t do anything more unless you have a full party.”

He said he began experimenting with various class concepts and inquired among SCHS students to determine if there were any students who played other rock instruments.

With growing demand, the idea quickly came to life.

“We just started putting bands together where they performed cover songs,” he said. “From there, I realized there was a need and a desire for students to take the instruments that they already know quite well, rock-wise, and make a band out of them.”

Chrabaszcz added that teenagers aspiring to a life as a musician often find forming and organizing a band a challenge, so he sought to teach his students proper band etiquette, such as how to organize bands. concerts, set up equipment, etc.

“I converted this classical guitar lesson into a rock band lesson where I help them understand the ins and outs of what it means to be in a band and how to put music together with other musicians “, did he declare.

He said that over the past two years, talented students have helped make the class what it is today.

“This year we have amazing music happening where we work together,” he said. “And then we got to play in front of the school and I think that really showcased the great work and the great music that we’re able to do in the [class].”

He added that the idea for class and concept exploration originated before the COVID-19 pandemic and an official class was formed in 2020 when classes were canceled due to increased restrictions. of public health.

“We were about to make our first debut of wicked music and that’s when the first stoppage happened,” he said. “There was a huge disappointment where we had the ball, we had something really amazing and things came to a halt.

“When it happened I was terrified because it was just something new starting to bloom.”

Chrabaszcz said he fears the work students have done over the past two years to grow the class will be lost during the closures. He said he was worried it might take longer to relaunch the concept once in-person classes resume.

Fortunately, his fears were never realized and when they returned to school, the students of the rock band picked up where they left off.

“It was the first year we had a normal school year and I happened to put the right people in the right place at the same time, and we’ve been on the move ever since,” he said.

He added that the students practice and perform a wide variety of music, from current pop songs, lyrical numbers and rock ballads to twangy country tunes.

“When I have students in the class, everyone wants to play their own style of music, but as a group you have to understand that everyone has their own passion for different genres,” he said. “So what I do is I ask each student, ‘What song do you absolutely want to play in this class?’

“I make sure everyone makes their choice and we have this agreement in the space that I’m going to play your song because I know you’re going to play my song.”

After a school year filled with practice and preparation, the rock band class finally got their chance in the spotlight, performing a series of catchy songs last month at the school’s dodgeball tournament.

According to Chrabaszcz, the rock students stole the show.

“We picked some of the songs we already had going that fit well with the event, so we picked all of our high-energy songs that sounded like crazy rock songs and solos that really get the students excited,” said he declared.

“And it really did that – it made everyone in that gym scream. It was a really cool event.

The class currently seats 10 students in grades 10 and 11, which Chrabaszcz says is an extremely small class size compared to other classes at the school.

“The music that we produce, nobody in the school even knew what was going on,” he said. “We performed [at the tournament] and they did an amazing job.

“I think now that the students at the school are seeing what’s going on and what they could be a part of, I feel like I’m going to see a lot more people trying to get through those doors to get involved.”

He added that he was looking forward to finding the space and equipment needed to facilitate a large influx of students into the classroom next year.

“There is an art studio for art students. There is a football team for football students. There is the calculus class for math students,” Chrabaszcz said. “I really think there needs to be this course for rock students.”

The Yeah Yeah Yeahs are back in force this year.

Karen O’s band have been relatively quiet for the past four years, but they recently dropped a major hint that they’re coming back with new material following their deal with independent record label Secretly Canadian.

As they prepare for their first concerts since 2018, the group released a teaser for a new song.

They will perform in Manchester, London and Australia next month.

They have now added two performances in the United States. They will perform at Forest Hills Stadium in New York City on October 1 before heading to the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles on October 6.

“It is with true life-affirming pleasure to announce our two signature shows in our two hometowns NYC AND LA supported by two extremely gifted bands Japanese Breakfast and The Linda Lindas at the Hollywood Bowl, with The Linda Lindas supporting to Forest Hills and our other TBA support soon!” Karen O said of the news.

“I represent a few generations! Can’t wait to see you there! New music! New era! And New Home with Secretly Canadian! Something to celebrate!” she added.

The dates were announced in a video that also included a preview of a new song, fueling fans’ anticipation for a new album.

the The band hasn’t confirmed plans to release new work, but Karen admitted that 2020 seems like the perfect time.

“All I can say is that I feel ready to write songs,” she told Australian radio station Double J. That’s about all I have to say.

“It feels like the time has come to release something new. However, that hasn’t happened yet and we’ll have to watch how this year unfolds.”

“Mosquito”, the group’s last album, was released in 2013.

It’s not just the band’s huge news. Recently, it was reported that Nick Zinner, guitarist of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, will release his extensive instrumental piece 41 Strings digitally and on vinyl. The four movements of the piece correspond to the four seasons. It will be released on July 1 by Zinner’s Yeah Yeah Yeahs band member Brian Chase’s Chaikin Records. Below, listen to “Fall” from the project.

Zinner created 41 Strings in New York City in 2011, as part of a commission commemorating the 41st anniversary of Earth Day. Since then, he has only performed the piece publicly three times. The album version was recorded in May 2011 at Hoboken, New Jersey’s Water Music. Aku Orraca-Tetteh, David Pajo, Siebren Versteeg, Nick Zinner and Joshua Zucker are among the guitarists featured on the 41 Strings album, as are bassist Andy Macleod and drummer Brian Chase.

Zinner has collaborated on new material with Damon Albarn for the Africa Express collective in the years since he originally shared 41 Strings. He also played guitar on Karen O and Willie Nelson’s duet performance of Queen’s “Under Pressure”.

How Dogstar, Keanu Reeves’ mediocre ’90s rock band, took the world by storm https://linkwraylegend.com/how-dogstar-keanu-reeves-mediocre-90s-rock-band-took-the-world-by-storm/ Tue, 03 May 2022 12:15:34 +0000 https://linkwraylegend.com/how-dogstar-keanu-reeves-mediocre-90s-rock-band-took-the-world-by-storm/ Keanu sings a song or two with Dogstar, as bassists are often allowed to do.

Keanu sings a song or two with Dogstar, as bassists are often allowed to do. He handles lead vocals on “Isabelle”, which he tells people is about his friend’s three-year-old daughter, and “Round C”, which he tells people is about cheese. Singing on stage is an incredible feeling, he says, because it reminds him of the best parts of being an actor: “When you can feel it, your blood is vibrating, it’s physical, your heart is open.” But mostly, he keeps his head down and plays bass. Domrose likes to say that when he’s on stage with Dogstar, he’s always staring at a sea of ​​left ears, because everyone’s eyes are on Keanu as he walks away to the right of the stage.

In 1997, twirl sends writer Benjamin Weissman to follow the band on tour. Denied an interview, Weissman files a “Frank Sinatra has a cold” style write-up that lands on the ostensibly confusing question of what Keanu sees in those doofs he’s sharing a bus with. The answer actually seems pretty clear: these doofs offer Keanu the chance to get out and be a doof too, to drink beer on a bus while postponing the answer to the larger, more difficult question of how he will make a living as an actor if he no longer wants to make films like Chain reaction and no one wants to pay to see it Feel the Minnesota.

What the guys in the band get out of it is obvious. They’re in their thirties and have been wandering around the entertainment industry for a while and we imagine that when the offers start rolling in, Keanu can’t just unilaterally turn them down and give up business advancement to play by Fugazi’s rules just because he makes 10 million dollars a picture and doesn’t need the money. So Dogstar is touring before they’ve even released a record and signed a deal with major label affiliate Zoo Entertainment, and usually ends up sending mixed signals about how serious the band they’re supposed to be. Their first album, Our little visionary, was released only in Japan. It looks a bit like a store brand Foo Fighters and a bit like a generic Goo Goo Dolls and a bit like one of the thousands of other less fortunate postgrunge outfits that managed a hit song or two before falling back into the crab bucket of the ’90s alternative rock scene, except instead of a hit single, Dogstar had Keanu.

It’s obviously a double-edged sword for the guys in the band who weren’t the star of Speed. They have access to incredible opportunities that only a masochist would take advantage of. Because they’re Keanu’s band, a lot of people can’t wait for them to suck, and that’s especially true of the large, mixed crowds they play to at rock festivals. They get bombarded with fruit at Glastonbury and splattered with mud at the Milwaukee Metal Fest, where they’ve somehow been booked as part of a lineup that includes bands like Cannibal Corpse and Deicide, and where they annoy everyone by playing a cover of “New Minglewood”. Blues” from the Grateful Dead. Another cover from their repertoire is the Carpenters hit “Superstar,” a depressing ballad about a pop singer who abandons the narrator after a one-night stand but continues to haunt her as a voice on the radio. In interviews, Keanu denies that there was any particular reason they decided to record this one. It’s on their second album, Happy ending, which was released in 2000. The cover art is a simple black-and-white photo of the band standing against a stone wall; Keanu is on the left, eyes downcast, still trying to pass unnoticed.

Dogstar played their last show in the US in July 2001, in Laughlin, Nevada, and – while it’s hard to imagine such a 90s band in existence after 9/11 – played their last show in 2002 , at the Ebisu Garden Hall in Tokyo. Mailhouse continues to play drums in a band called Becky; the singer is his girlfriend, Real World: Seattle former student Rebecca Lord, and Keanu play some bass on their only album, 2006 Take it on the chin. Years later, when the public part of the Dogstar affair was over, the guys in the band who weren’t Keanu would give interviews saying it was hard to know if they were really reaching people as a band. , or if people would have paid to stand in a small club or a giant arena and watch Keanu do just about anything – card tricks, sock puppets, mimes. They’ll say it like they don’t know what the answer is all the time.

Reveal young Ian10 year old son of ANTHRAX guitarist Ian Scottteamed up with a 16 year old Liam Williams (guitar/vocals), and 15 years old Theo O’Gara (bass/vocals) to form a three-way rock and roll band called BEE.

Formed in 2019 in the heart of the Santa Monica Mountains in Southern California, BEEThe musical style of is described in a press release as an “explosive cocktail of hard rock and heavy metal with a touch of psych, prog and an alt-folk edge”.

BEE will perform at Whiskey a Go Go in West Hollywood, Calif. on May 15. They will also play Topanga Days music festival at the Topanga Community House in Topanga, California on May 30.

Struck by the other world John Bonham-like rhythms he heard rising from band rehearsal in his little sister’s basement, williamswho was looking to form his own band, discovered the natural talents of the young drummer revel in and quickly asked if he could join him on lead guitar in an impromptu jam. Immediately, the two boys gelled in the sound and vibe. Realizing that they should continue making music together, they quickly team up with Liamhis classmate’s bass-master Theo O’Garaand the trinity was formed.

With the three members of BEE being real multi-instrumentalists, each from musical families with slightly different styles, Liam, revel in and Theo collectively recognize their individual musical flavors and bring them together to enhance the deep foundations of their own music across the spectrum of rock and roll, from classic rock to nu metal and everything in between.

Bringing together an avalanche of original song ideas, BEE quickly put together an album of all-new tracks that would have bands like STONE AGE QUEENS afraid to follow them. Together they spent four days at the famous Workshop 606 in Northridge, California, plugged into the legendary Sound City Neve console. There they let the cool waves of their organic inspiration flow and coagulate through historic, time-worn channels touched by the vibrations of some of music’s greatest artists in history, creating BEEthe self-titled debut album, due out May 27 via Swingin’ Pipe Records/The orchard.

Talking about what it’s like to be in a band, revel inborn June 2011, said, “It’s one of the most awesome feelings you can have. Playing music with people is one of the most creative things you can do. You can make music the way you want it. And at my age “Forget it. I’m so grateful to be able to play music with two guys who are 5 years older than me. I am so grateful to be able to play as well as I can at 11 years old. Quick summary: Being in a band is the best feeling you can have.”

As for what it’s like to play songs on stage, revel in said, “Playing on stage is a bonding moment for the players in the band. When you’re playing on stage and the drums and bass are tight together and the guitar and vocals follow, it’s like the deepest feeling. exciting and the healthiest you can get. Performing your own songs, which you wrote, all by yourself with a little help from others in front of a crowd! Love it! You’ll feel like you’ve become a controlling god! .(That can’t always be good haha)”.

These last months, Scott shared videos of him jamming with revel in to songs by BURIAL, HELMET, SYSTEM OF A DOWN, CORN and FOO FIGHTERS, among others.

revel in is apparently a gifted multi-instrumentalist who joined the FOO FIGHTERS on stage in September 2019 at Bourbon and beyond festival in Louisville, Kentucky to perform “Still” on the guitar when he was only eight years old.

In 2014, Ian Told Horns up the rocks that her then three-year-old son was a huge fan of METALLIC, THE BEATLES and AC DC and that he could already tell the difference between Good Scottthe voice of and that of Brian Johnson.

“He knows many things he hears or sees in the house”, Scott said at the time. “But what’s really cool is that he recognizes and knows the difference between Good Scott and Brian Johnson, which is pretty cool, I think, for an almost three-year-old. Whenever AC DC is on, it will go, ‘It’s Good singing.’ And then when it’s not good, he’ll say, ‘It’s not Good singing.’ He knows. It’s pretty cool, I think.”

Asked if metal musicians should be parents, Ian said it was the best thing that ever happened to him. He added: “I think you have to take it on a case by case basis. I couldn’t say enough about having a child; I think it’s the greatest thing in the world. But I think ‘there are a lot of people on this planet, not necessarily metal musicians, it shouldn’t be parents.”
