Marshall of Rock Interview: Bassist/Producer/Engineer Billy Sherwood of Nektar talks new album, Yes connection and more

Marshall of Rock Interview: Bassist/Producer/Engineer Billy Sherwood of Nektar talks new album, Yes connection and more

I had the pleasure to talk to the multi-talent Billy Sherwood today and it was some great conversation. Billy is a man of incredible talent, with a true and passionate love of music. A master musician, award winning producer, mixer and engineer, Billy has worked with an A to Z list of legendary rock artists in every facet of the music business. I caught up with Billy while on his way to rehearsal with legendary art rock band Nektar, as the other guys were in his rear-view mirror as we spoke. We touched on Billy's involvement with Nektar and their only 2012 gig tomorrow night (Sept. 6) at The Coach House in San Juan Capistrano, California. We also talked about one of his other projects, The Prog Collective, his over 20 year involvement with the band Yes, his rock production work on many rock tribute albums, including a new one for Supertramp called 'Songs of the Century: An All-Star Tribute To Supertramp'. Billy also talked about his production/engineering work with a wide range of artists, inlcuding Paul Rodgers, Dangerous Toys, and Motorhead, sharing an interesting story about recording with Lemmy at the on-set of the Los Angeles riots that you've got to hear. Add to that his take on the current state of the music industry, what created his passion for music in general and what iconic entertainment figure was his Godfather, and it makes for some interesting music conversation. Check it out below:

Here's the official press release for Nektar with all the info and links on tomorrow night's show. Get tickets and check it out if you're in the area!:

Los Angeles, CA…On September 6th, legendary art rock outfit Nektar will be performing its only 2012 U.S. concert at the Coach House in San Juan Capistrano, CA.  Nektar’s renowned big sound and epic live performance in an intimate setting makes this a can’t-miss show.

Though comprised of four Englishmen, Nektar formed in Germany in 1969, and earned a cult following for its psychedelic, spacey approach.  In the mid-1970s, Nektar attracted attention and a growing fanbase in America with several concept albums and a uniquely visual live show.  The band continues to perform today to a fervent and developing audience, and remains an influence for “space rock” artists around the world.

Nektar is featured in the August 14 Cleopatra DVD release, SPACE ROCK INVASION, a live show taped in Los Angeles, and is releasing SPOONFUL OF TIME (September 11 via Cleopatra), an incredible collection of classic rock covers re-imagined with the help of members of Yes, King Crimson, Symphony X, Opeth, Marillion, Asia, The Moody Blues, Dream Theater, Tangerine Dream and more.

An added treat, multi-talented musician Billy Sherwood will be debuting as bass player with Nektar.  Sherwood has played in Yes (and several of its reconfigurations), Yoso, Toto, Circa, World Trade and others.  As a producer, mixer and engineer, he’s spearheaded THE PROG COLLECTIVE, and contributed to recordings by Yes, Motorhead, Paul Rodgers, Dangerous Toys and all-star tribute albums to artists such as Queen, AC/DC, and Stevie Ray Vaughan.  He will also be producing and playing bass on the new Nektar album of original songs, recording this fall.

The Coach House is located at 33157 Camino Capistrano in San Juan Capistrano, CA.  Tickets for Nektar are $15 and can be purchased in advance by calling 949.496.8930 or at http://www.ticketfly.com/purchase/event/147983.  Doors are at 6pm, show starts at 8pm with Sixstep.  This is an all-ages event.

‘Songs Of The Century: An All-Star Tribute To Supertramp’ to be released August 14th

by on Aug.04, 2012, under CD/DVD RELEASES, LINKS, ROCK NEWS

‘Songs Of The Century: An All-Star Tribute To Supertramp’ to be released August 14th

Some of the biggest names in rock contribute to a very special collection being released by Cleopatra Records on August 14th, 'Songs Of The Century: An All-Star Tribute To Supertramp.' The record features members of Asia, Yes, King Crimson, The Doors, Deep Purple, XTC, Toto, Mr. Mister, Dream Theater, Nektar, Porcupine Tree, Gentle Giant, Renaissance, and Rainbow.

Supertramp formed in 1970 in the U.K. While initially considered a progressive rock outfit, the incredible songwriting of Roger Hodgson and Rick Davies, coupled with Hodgson’s unmistakable voice, moved the group into the pop and rock stratosphere by the 1980's. They amazingly straddled the line between expansive prog and commercial radio with unforgettable melodies, sing-along lyrics, a wizard-like Wurlizer, and the accent of the saxophone. They sold more than 60 million records, and hit singles from 'Crime of the Century,' 'Even In the Quietest Moments,' and 'Breakfast In America' are still played on radio stations, used in advertising, and etched in minds.

The recognizable and beloved Supertramp hit songs are reenvisioned on 'Songs Of The Century,' including 'The Logical Song,' 'Take The Long Way Home,' and 'Goodbye Stranger,' plus takes on gems like 'Rudy' and 'It’s Raining Again.' Producer Billy Sherwood enthuses, “There are some cool, unique moments like Annie Haslam singing “Dreamer” and one of the other highlights for me is Rick Wakeman’s piano playing on “Crime of the Century.” And Joe Lynn Turner singing “Bloody Well Right” is just killer.”” Richard Page offers a delightful version of “Give A Little Bit” that exudes all the sweet charm of the original. The bonus track is a new piece from Chris Squire and Tony Kaye of Yes.

The studio guest list also included John Wetton, Tony Levin, Robby Krieger, Colin Moulding, Steve Morse, Steve Porcaro, Roye Albrighton, Peter Banks, David Sancious, Gary Green, John Wesley, Geoff Downes, Jordan Rudess, Rod Argent, Mickey Thomas and more.

Explains Brian Perera, President of Cleopatra Records, “Supertramp is pretty inactive, and there’s a fan base out there that is just hungry for more Supertramp, and nobody can give it to them.”

Sherwood (the producer of the groundbreaking Pink Floyd tribute albums 'Back Against The Wall' and 'Return To The Dark Side Of The Moon,' as well as supergroup The Prog Collective) was very pleased to be asked to oversee the task of celebrating Supertramp. He says, “Supertramp is a great band. They’ve written so many hits that you can’t even count them all. “

Track List:
1. Breakfast In America - John Wetton (Asia) & Larry Fast (Peter Gabriel)
2. Take The Long Way Home - John Wesley (Porcupine Tree)
3. The Logical Song - Mickey Thomas (Starship), Steve Morse (Deep Purple) & Tony Kaye (Yes)
4. Give A Little Bit - Richard Page (Mr. Mister) & Peter Banks (Yes)
5. It's Raining Again - Colin Moulding (XTC) & Geoff Downes (Yes/Asia)
6. Crime Of The Century - Billy Sherwood (Yes), Rick Wakeman (Yes) & Tony Levin (King Crimson)
7. Dreamer - Annie Haslam (Renaissance) & David Sancious (Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band)
8. Goodbye Stranger - Billy Sherwood (Yes), Gary Green (Gentle Giant) & Jordan Rudess (Dream Theater)
9. Rudy - Roye Albrighton (Nektar) & Steve Porcaro (Toto)
10. Bloody Well Right - Joe Lynn Turner (Rainbow) & Dave Kerzner
11. School - Rod Argent (The Zombies) & Robby Krieger (The Doors)

BONUS ORIGINAL TRACK
12. Let The World Revolve - Chris Squire (Yes) & Tony Kaye (Yes)

Asia are back with original lineup for new album ‘XXX’ (video)

Thirty years after its eponymous debut album, ASIA ascended to the top of the Billboard Top 100 chart (where it remained No.1 for nine consecutive weeks), the legendary British classic rock band returns with a brand new studio album, a 30th Anniversary edition of their debut album, 2 DVDs, and a world tour that includes UK, Europe, Japan and America. ASIA will release their new studio album, "XXX" on Frontiers Records June 29 in Europe and July 3 in North America with the original line-up of Geoff Downes, Steve Howe, Carl Palmer & John Wetton. The first single taken from the highly anticipated new album is entitled "Face On The Bridge", released worldwide on May 14. The official video for the song can be seen below.

Hear ‘N Aid “Stars” to be re-released by Ronnie James Dio’s Widow

by on Nov.09, 2011, under CD/DVD RELEASES, ROCK NEWS, VIDEO

Hear ‘N Aid “Stars” to be re-released by Ronnie James Dio’s Widow

Charity singles for famine relief like "Do They Know It's Christmas" and "We Are the World" topped the charts back in the 1980's, and if you remember, the Metal world put eventually put out their own single as well. Dio members Vivian Campbell and Jimmy Bain wanted to do something about what they felt was a slight of their genre, and spoke to lead singer Ronnie James Dio about putting together their own charity project.

Thus "Stars" was born, featuring Ted Nugent, Yngwie Malmsteen and members of Mötley Crüe, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Quiet Riot, Twisted Sister, W.A.S.P., Dokken, Blue Öyster Cult, Rough Cutt and even Spinal Tap. The group was called  Hear 'N Aid and they put out an album also called Stars, featuring live songs from KISS, Rush, Dio and more.

Due to contract differences with the labels, the song and album weren't released until New Year's Day, 1986, whic was well after the success of its predecessors and the height of awareness for charity singles.

But Ronnie's widow Wendy Dio wants to fix that. "I’m going to rerelease [Stars] because it only ever came out on vinyl and cassette. So it’ll come out on DVD and CD," she told Rolling Stone. "I have loads of outtakes for the video."

Until then, Wendy has a many projects on the horizon to honor Dio's memory and raise funds for the Stand Up And Shout Cancer Fund. There will be an event at the Playboy Mansion in L.A. with an awards ceremony – with each award named after a Dio song, including the King Of Rock And Roll honor, being given this year to his Black Sabbath mate Geezer Butler and hosted by Eddie Trunk.

"Geezer Butler was not only a band mate with Ronnie, but one of his dearest friends," Wendy says. "He insisted on flying to Houston for Ronnie’s first chemo treatment to sit with him. Obviously I miss Ronnie every day, but I like to keep his memory alive and see if we can raise as much money as possible to get rid of this horrible disease."

She is also planning a bowling benefit January 31st and a guitar auction in April featuring over 100 donated guitars. Next year she wants to begin work on the tribute album, which will include artists ranging from Dave Grohl, doing Mob Rules, to Asia lead singer John Wetton, who may tackle Heaven And Hell. She also says it will have to be a double album that will include friends like Halford and Glenn Hughes, as well as younger bands, such as Killswitch, who were influenced by Dio.
