    for the Music News Category Main Next Entries The Return of The Darkness 2011 04 14 Posted in Music News About a year ago rumors started that British glam rockers The Darkness were reuniting Brothers Justin and Dan Hawkins were said to have buried the hatchet and started writing music together again Then all was quiet up until a couple of months ago when all of a sudden an official Facebook group for The Darkness appeared and a website theactualdarkness com Now it seems as though a summer tour is in the works and with the original four piece lineup none the less The Darkness are scheduled to appear at the Download Festival on June 10th as well as Getaway Rock in Sweden on July 8th I fondly remember seeing The Darkness back in 2004 at Fryshuset in Stockholm and the great show they put on At one point Justin passed right by where we were standing during Love on the Rocks With No Ice when one of the crew members were carrying him around on his shoulders through the audience while he played the guitar solo There are also reports coming out of a new album that is supposedly

    Eric Clapton Globen Stockholm Sweden 2011 06 08 New Music From Def Leppard 2011 04 17 Def Leppard s new single Undefeated surfaced earlier this week on April 12th to be correct The song is one of three new studio tracks off of the British rockers upcoming live CD DVD combo Mirrorball The first thing that strikes me upon hearing the song is amazement at yet another fantastic guitar riff by Phil Collen The second thing is how reminiscent the first couple of vocal lines are to Def Leppard s 1992 single Let s Get Rocked But there you have it Def Leppard have realized one of the most important lessons a band that s been around for 30 years can learn Give the fans what they want After more or less successful forays towards the alternative scene with 1996 s Slang and X from 2002 Def Leppard goes for the sound that made them popular in the first place Undefeated is a hard hitting rocker with a soaring chorus and big guitars that makes even the most introverted individual want to jump up and down to the beat The Lep s have a US tour together with Heart lined

    of rock music moving away from the blues I don t have a problem with that since I like both sides of Joe and an up tempo rock show leaves a more lasting impression on me anyway I was very happy that Slow Train was still the opener I thought that maybe I d missed my chance to hear it live since Joe skipped Sweden on the Dust Bowl Tour But it actually seemed that this was still an extension of that tour even though his new album Driving Towards The Daylight was just around the corner Dust Bowl was another favorite of mine which is weird cause I usually never like the new songs when I go see bands these days Joe explained to the audience that this was the band s first concert with keyboardist Rick Melick since he d been returned to them by Russian customs Melick was detained when the band was about to enter Russia because of some issue with his visa The shows in Saint Petersburg and Moscow were done with Joe bassist Carmine Rojas and drummer Tal Bergman as a power trio while Melick spent a couple of days in lockup The best two songs of the night was probably the Black Country Communion tune Song of Yesterday and Bonamassa s cover of The Who s Young Man Blues However Song of Yesterday was really lacking Glenn Hughes vocals Don t get me wrong I love Joe Bonamassa s voice but the combination of both their vocals in that song is such a big part of its appeal to me But the main riff is just so great and Joe s solo was nothing short of phenomenal Young Man Blues was such a perfect fit for Joe s live show and I hope he will keep it in the set for future tours Joe s new drummer Tal Bergman is a really nice addition to the band He did an awesome drum solo before being joined on stage by Joe on his white Gibson Don Felder EDS 1275 Double Neck guitar Between songs Joe mentioned to the band that he had played the same venue with Black Country Communion less than a year ago joking that he had stayed in the spot where bassist Carmine Rojas was standing all night implying that he was playing second fiddle to the always gracious Glenn Hughes The concert ended with the now standard set closer Just Got Paid complete with Zeppelin s Dazed and Confused riff tagged on for good measure A great way to end the show that got everyone on their feet If I was to compared the two times I ve seen Joe Bonamassa solo I would have to say that this concert was the better of the two mainly because the song choices appealed more to me but also because the show was twenty minutes longer I thought that the drum and guitar solo was a really nice addition Now I can

    sardonic country music Terrell seemed the perfect candidate to create the stunning visuals for Disturbed s final tour My video is not my true voice it is the residue of my ambition Terrell stated But when I m working with a client I like the challenge of trying to please them even though it s not necessarily my own work That s the real challenge Charlie and Disturbed worked together to create a crop of new visuals that represented the band s new material on Asylum but also included the band s previous music and artwork It s hard for us as artists and as a band to give that creativity to someone else and trust their vision said Disturbed lead guitarist Dan Donegan and Charlie had a nice sense of direction some cool dark images and was pretty much on the same page as where we are with the imagery A lot of stuff just really blew us away Terrell had to contend with the band s early career success and the various iconic figures that went along with it Well known for their dark side Disturbed s official mascot a sinister smiling hooded figure known as The Guy had been a part of their visual aesthetic from the start of their career I like what he did with Stupefy which was our first single from The Sickness Donegan said Terrell took images from our old video and just warped them and kind of turned them around incorporated some of his new textures and I thought that was a creative way to tie in that old look from 11 years ago With our trademark art work The Guy to kind of bring those things in there was important to us because those images have become a big part of the band As Disturbed s reign as the most popular hard rock band of the last decade comes to close they will tour it out in style Everything is about matching the video to the song said Terrell Written by Daniel No Comments Red Hot Chili Peppers Globen Stockholm 2011 10 12 2011 10 13 Posted in Concert Reviews Jump to Setlist Pictures Notes about the concert Once again Flea introduced the opening act Femi Kuti The Positive Force and joined them on stage for their last song Surprisingly short set only 1 hour and 38 minutes You can tell that John Frusciante is not in the band anymore because most songs have been trimmed down to their bare essentials no embellishments and no jamming The songs are basically played exactly like the album versions What was really strange was that they didn t play Californication the second night Now I m all for varying the setlist but to omit one of the band s biggest hits and a song that I m sure most people expected to hear is really too bad The song always get such a big reaction in Sweden with the line Little girls from Sweden

    urinals and finally managed to find a mud free spot from where we watched the end of Arch Enemy s set I should also mention that there was a water hose in the festival area that people would use to hose off the mud from themselves Now I m no expert but I would think that if you re covered in mud and proceed to spray water on yourself isn t whatever mud that stays on you going to harden into some sort of crust Not to mention the obligatory pneumonia you d get from walking around soaking wet in 10 degrees Celcius So we stayed in this dry spot and watched German rocker Udo Dirkschneider Man I love saying that name German i such a beautiful language Aside from all the weirdos we ran in to during the evening next to us was the cutest little girl She couldn t have been more than 5 6 years old and was standing there with her long haired heavy metal fan of a father She was decked out in a studded necklace and braclets and wearing huge pink ear muffs She seemed to be having a great time and kept doing the devil horns sign I think it s so cool with parents who takes their children to concerts that s the best education right there Halfway through Mr Dirkschneider s set we started making our way towards the stage in preparation for Chickenfoot and since I ve already written about that this seems like an appropriate place to wrap things up We both had a great time at Rockweekend and really enjoyed the whole festival experience Now we won t hesitate to go to a concert just because it s a festival gig anymore As long as we can stay in a hotel and be dry and comfortable at night I m game But next time we ll make sure to buy rubber boots so we don t have to ruin another set of winter boots with mud Written by Daniel Posted in Music Musings 6 Responses to Lost in the Mud Irma says 2009 07 19 at 18 48 Yeah I totally want to do another festival of this type As long as I have a hotel and rubber boots I m happy In that last picture you took it looks like everyone is doing some sort of choreographed dance Illoluv Blog Archive Rockweekend Girl says 2009 07 19 at 21 42 we were at Rockweekend we found a little island of hay away from all the mud to stand on while we watched a few bands play from afar Sharing that little island was a father Linda says 2009 07 24 at 17 39 Hey fellow Chickenheads I m from Bay Area California I flew all the way to Sweden to see Chickenfoot I was unable to get tickets in the states to see the band So my boyfriend my 12yr old son and myself were already going
