Rock Picks of the Week: Sound City Players with Stevie Nicks, Eric Clapton, Anthrax, Red, Taddy Porter, Free Fall

Rock Picks of the Week: Sound City Players with Stevie Nicks, Eric Clapton, Anthrax, Red, Taddy Porter, Free Fall

Stevie Nicks of Fleetwood Mac has been keeping extremely busy as she readies the return of Fleetwood Mac, as a key member of Dave Grohl‘s Sound City Players. Nicks has already performed multiple times with the band, including a show and a speaking engagement at the SXSW Music Conference in Austin, Texas.

Nicks will spoke on March 15th in the Austin Convention Center, and her Sound City compadre Grohl was the keynote speaker this year at SXSW, and was joined by Nicks, John Fogerty, Lee Ving of Fear, Rick Nielsen, Rick Springfield, Brad Wilk of Rage Against the Machine, Corey Taylor of Slipknot and more at a concert held at the rock hall Stubbs. The Meat Puppets will opened the show.

The Sound City Players track with Stevie from the 'Sound City: Reel To Real' soundtrack quite possibly may be my favorite track on the album. 'You Can’t Fix This' is a haunting, emotional track that features the finest vocal by Stevie that I've heard in a long time. They performed the track on 'The Late Show with David Letterman' last month as well, which you can watch below.

In addition to appearing in that film, Nicks recently produced her own documentary called 'In Your Dreams,' and ten days after her speaking engagement, Nicks' interview with Oprah Winfrey will air on the OWN Network. That episode has already been taped, and it’s expected that Nicks will speak candidly about her history with drugs. On April 4th Fleetwood Mac will begin their 2013 North American tour in Columbus, Ohio. They’ll play 34 dates this spring and summer. Stevie and the band are expected to release at least two new songs, in hopes for inclusin on a new Fleetwood Mac album if the response the the new tracks is positive. If they sound half as good as this song, that is a no-brainer.

Eric Clapton's 21st solo studio album 'Old Sock', features his take on 10 of his favorite songs from throughout his life, along with two new tunes. The album features guest artists Paul McCartney, Chaka Khan, Steve Winwood, J.J. Cale and Taj Mahal. The album was released on March 12th.

Clapton covers the reggae flavored 'Further on Down the Road,' by Taj Mahal, shows off his slide-guitar skills on a version of Leadbelly’s 'Goodnight Irene', honkey-tonks it up on the country standard 'Born to Lose' and covers a vintage show tune on 1937's Jerome Kern-Oscar Hammerstein ballad 'The Folks Who Live on the Hill.' The Gershwin Brothers 'Our Love Is Here to Stay' gets the slowhand treatment, with Steve Winwood's Hammond B3 Organ joining in on the cover of Gary Moore's 'Still Got the Blues,' with Peter Tosh's 'Till Your Well Runs Dry' covered as well.

Two Clapton originals, 'Angel', and one of the rock pick of the week 'Gotta Get Over,' round out the album. 'Gotta Get Over' is a solid original, bringing the classic Clapton sound back for us to enjoy. It's a great track from one of the all-timers!

'Old Sock' track listing
1. Further On Down The Road
2. Angel
3. The Folks Who Live On The Hill
4. Gotta Get Over
5. Till Your Well Runs Dry
6. All Of Me
7. Born To Lose
8. Still Got The Blues
9. Goodnight Irene
10. Your One and Only Man
11. Every Little Thing
12. Our Love Is Here To Stay

Clapton is getting ready to head out on the road for U.S. leg of his 2013 concert tour. It kicks off Thursday in Phoenix, Arizona. Then, EC heads to Texas for dates in Austin, Houston and Dallas followed by 10 more U.S. cities.

 

The Anthrax eight-track E.P. 'Anthems' that pays tribute to the classic songs by some of the band's favorite acts from the 1970s, will be released in North America on March 19th (MRI/Megaforce), and on March 22th in Europe (Nuclear Blast). The band's versions of Rush's 'Anthem' and AC/DC's 'T.N.T' are both in Rock Picks this week.

"Anthems" track listing
1. Anthem (Rush)
2. Jailbreak (Thin Lizzy)
3. TNT (AC/DC)
4. Smokin' (Boston)
5. Big Eyes (Cheap Trick)
6. Keep On Runnin' (Journey)
7. Crawl (album version)
8. Crawl (special remix)

Joey Belladonna said about the E.P., "These are all bands I grew up with and have listened to forever. It's just great music. I had fun singing these songs and I was happy recording together with ANTHRAX, doing classic rock songs. Fun stuff!"

The band paid particular attention to the cover of Rush's "Anthem" in order to recreate the nuances of the original song.

"I have to get every little part of Geddy (Lee) down, 'cause I'm a fanatic with that stuff, and I have to," bassist Frank Bello said. "It's great. I love it."

Added Scott: "Charlie bumped into Neil Peart at the (Revolver) Golden Gods Awards a few months ago, and Neil actually said to Charlie, 'Yeah, we heard you guys are covering 'Anthem'. That's so cool. We put the clip of you playing drums [to the song] up on our web site.' And Charlie, I swear to God, he was like, the light, the glow that was coming off him after that was… I'd never seen anything quite like it."

Drummer Charlie Benante told Loudwire, "Back in the day, when we would do encores we would play AC/DC’s ‘Whole Lotta Rosie.’ We never recorded it back then, but when we were in the studio making ‘Worship Music,’ we decided we wanted to. But [singer] Joey [Belladonna] really wanted to do 'T.N.T.' He felt it was more in his style, and he knew the song backwards and forwards, so we recorded that, and it’s great. We recorded the track in Chicago and in Los Angeles [and] the sessions were really easy, felt really good. The thing about ‘T.N.T.’ for me is that there’s not a lot of drumming on it. So the challenge for me was to not go crazy with fills, but to pay tribute to the original recording, and keep it AC/DC."

'Anthems' was produced by Anthrax with Jay Ruston and former guitarist Rob Caggiano and recorded throughout 2012 at Benante's home studio, in Ruston's New York studio, on the band's tour bus while on last summer's Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, in hotel rooms, and backstage at their Berlin show last December.

The 'Anthems' E.P. will be available on CD and digitally via iTunes and other online retailers. Benante and artist Stephen Thompson have redesigned each track's original album cover art to "Anthrax" it. The "Anthems" EP will first be housed in one of the "re-imagined" digipak covers, and then inserted inside the main CD cover sleeve. The main cover sleeve has been designed in such a way so fans will be able to see which one of the six "re-imagined" covers is inside.

Anthrax will continue touring North America on the Metal Alliance Tour kicking back off on March 22nd. For all of these dates, the band will be joined by Shadows Fall guitarist Jon Donais.

RED’s latest album ‘Release the Panic’ was recently unleashed and hit the Top 10 on the Billboard album chart in its debut week. The disc, which features the hit single ‘Perfect Life,’ marks the first time the band has worked with producer Howard Benson (Halestorm, Papa Roach, P.O.D.). The song impacts immediately and doesn't let up, showing great musicianship and a band on the brink for a major step up in exposure.

The band is also in the midst of Winter Jam Tour 2013, an annual Christian music festival featuring artists in many different genres. After that tour wraps up, they plan on embarking on a headlining run in April.

 

Stillwater, Oklahoma band Taddy Porter are back with the follow up to their self-titled debut from 2010, which was a favorite of mine. The band just released their sophomore album 'Stay Golden' and show a positive progression, while maintaining the esscence of what they are about....great Rock N' Roll.

In talking about the title of the new album, singer and guitarist Andy Brewer recently said, “We wanted the title to pay homage to Oklahoma because it’s our collective home. At the same time, it gives a broader idea of our view on life and nods to that line in The Outsiders, ‘Stay gold, Ponyboy.’ It’s about holding on to your innocence and optimism. You’ve got to stay golden in the face of life’s curveballs, and stay true to yourself. As a band, that’s was our singular goal when we set out to make this album. We needed to remain true to the music we want to make.”

The fantastic first single, 'Fever' follows the guys to the beach surrounded by beautiful ladies "It’s an observation of an untouchable girl who can’t get enough of the nightlife,” reveals the vocalist. “You want her, but you can’t have her. While she’s sexy and has everything that will make you go crazy, she’ll never let you get close enough to figure her out. You can’t get enough of her, and you’ve got the fever.”

I got the fever! Taddy Porter just played 5 gigs surrounding SXSW (South By Southwest) in Austin, Texas this week, followed by a month long tour that will wrap on April 10th in Seattle, Washington.

Swedish rock band Free Fall make their first appearance in rock picks. I really like the straight ahead rock sound and vibe of this band. Free Fall features guitarist Mattias Bärjed (Soundtrack Of Our Lives) and drummer Ludwig Dahlberg (THE [International] Noise Conspiracy)

The band's bio:
As far as a musical direction there was a clear intention to sound like a mix between early Van Halen, the Stooges and the WHO. Other obvious influences on the band would be rock classics such as Led Zeppelin, UFO, AC/DC and Judas Priest to name a few. First in line to join the band was long time friend and bass wizard Jan Martens, who was joint shortly there after by drummer Ludwig Dahlberg (International Noise conspiracy).
The final, last and very vital piece of the Free Fall puzzle was to find a lead vocalist. And not just any vocalist - but a guy that could deliver the very high standard closing in on over the top vocals that the band was looking for to front Free Fall. The word hit the streets that the band was looking – for a vocalist in the school of Steve Marriot and Bon Scott – and after some time help was found from Mattias and Ludwigs long time friend and producer Don Alsterberg (Graveyard, José Gonzales etc).
Don claimed that he knew a guy called Kim from his hometown – that he was close to sure was the right guy for the job. Kim Fransson showed up at rehearsals, the band jammed a couple of songs and the rest will be history. After signing a deal with Nuclear blast the band went into Studio Cobra in Stockholm and have together with producer, engineer and mixer Martin Ehrencrona recorded an album that will show the world what Free Fall and their Freedom rock is all about. - Power and volume

"World Domination" comes off Free Fall's debut album, 'Power & Volume', which was released on February 22 via Nuclear Blast Records.

'Power & Volume' track listing:
1. Power & Volume
2. Free Fall
3. Midnight Vulture
4. Top Of The World
5. Attila
6. World Domination
7. Love Bombing
8. Damnation
9. Meriola Blues
10. Meat

Bonus:
11. Change Coming
12. Yeah!!!

Rock Picks of the Week: Taylor/Grohl/Nielsen/Reeder, Tremonti, Krokus, Black Veil Brides, Pinnick/Gales/Pridgen, Art Of Dying, Otherwise

by on Jan.25, 2013, under LINKS, ROCK NEWS, ROCK PICKS, VIDEO

Rock Picks of the Week: Taylor/Grohl/Nielsen/Reeder, Tremonti, Krokus, Black Veil Brides, Pinnick/Gales/Pridgen, Art Of Dying, Otherwise

First up this week in Rock picks is the next release from Dave Grohl's upcoming 'Sound City: Real To Reel' soundtrack. Corey Taylor (Slipknot/Stone Sour), Dave Grohl, Rick Nielsen (Cheap Trick) and Scott Reeder (Kyuss) collaborate on 'From Can To Can't.' Heavy, yet radio friendly, the track is sure to help the reach of the 'Sound City' movie and soundtrack.

Taylor, Nielsen and Reeder performed the track with Grohl as part the Sound City Players on January 18th in Park City, Utah during the Sundance Film Festival. Others who were a part of the concert surrounding the movie premiere event included Alain Johannes of Queens of the Stone Age, Foo Fighters Taylor Hawkins, Rami Jaffe, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett and Pat Smear, Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic, Chris Goss of Masters Of Reality, drummer Brad Wilk of Rage Against the Machine, John Fogerty, Stevie Nicks, Rick Springfield, Lee Ving of Fear and violinist Jessy Greene. Another sold-out performance by the Sound City Players will happen Jan. 31st at the Hollywood Palladium, with Rick Nielsen a part of it, but Taylor won't be able to make that show. Screenings across the country of the movie will also happen on Jan. 31st.

Grohl was inspired to make the documentary last year after buying Sound City's custom-built Neve 8028 recording console, considered by many to be the crown jewel of analog recording equipment.

The movie will be available for download purchase on Feb. 1st.

The new Tremonti track 'Wish You Well' from one of the best metal albums released in 2012 ('All I Was') is up next and the video is some visual art in itself. It includes a guitar playing young boy on a rooftop, having been led there by a mystery man. The man travels from house to house trying to find the young boy later in the clip and at the end of the video he arrives at the boy's door knocking, at an apartment number 12. Let's hope we see another video clip and single from the album so we can find out what's in apartment 12.

Tremonti will be touring Denmark, Germany, Italy, Switzerland and the U.K., before starting a U.S. tour on Feb. 21 in Potiac, Michigan.

Krokus is back with a new album 'Dirty Dynamite,' slated for release on February 22nd, and the title track is in this week's Rock Picks.

For almost 40 years now Krokus has stood for high-quality, honest-to-goodness, hand-made power rock. No other Swiss rock band sells albums and its back catalogue worldwide like Krokus. The band has already sold over 14 million records, toured the world and received gold and platinum record awards. The milestones in their rock career are dotted around the world: from Australia and the USA to Canada, Mexico, Russia, Japan and China.

But it hasn't all been one long "high": death, sickness and internal strife have pushed the band to the brink of collapse. The story of Krokus is like no other. Dotted with highs and lows, sell-out stadium concerts and sweaty club gigs, these five musketeers of rock have outlasted trends and survived treacherous US managers, tough splits, bad deals, shady lawyers, drugs, awful fast food, endless bus trips, disco, grunge, grotesque record companies and double-dealing advisors.

Today they are back in their classic line-up -- Marc Storace, Chris von Rohr, Fernando von Arb, Mark Kohler, and Mandy Meyer -- and are stronger than ever on their new album 'Dirty Dynamite'. Guest musician Kosta Zafiriou plays drums on the entire album. The band spent a whole two years working on the new album under the watchful eye of bassist and original founder Chris Von Rohr. "We didn't spend all that time on golf courses or tennis courts. No, we just wanted to make the best album yet, the magnum opus of the new Krokus era" says the hit producer. Guitarist Mark Kohler has this to add, "This is not just another Krokus album. I think we have definitely passed another rock milestone with this record."

To reach this goal, no expense was spared. The band booked into the legendary Abbey Road Studios in London. Krokus went back to their roots, back to where it all began with the Rolling Stones, the Beatles, the Free, the Who and the Bluesbreakers. Back to where the band headlined concerts in the Hammersmith Odeon, celebrating their first international success. "The atmosphere there is very special and we wanted to make the most of that," says vocalist Marc Storace. Guitarist Fernando Von Arb is quick to add, "With Dirty Dynamite we have recorded the urgently needed dirty kind of rock that no one plays in this country."

'Dirty Dynamite' track listing:
1. Hallelujah Rock'n'Roll
2. Go Baby Go
3. Rattlesnake Rumble
4. Dirty Dynamite
5. Let The Good Times Roll
6. Help
7. Better Than Sex
8. Dog Song
9. Yellow Mary
10. Bailout Blues
11. Live Ma Life
12. Hardrocking Man

Black Veil Brides are back with their new album, 'Wretched And Divine: The Story Of The Wild Ones,' which recently debuted at No. 5 on The Billboard 200 charts. The band continues to have one of the most dedicated fan bases in rock and they are delivering to that base once again. 'In The End' is the first track and video from the album, which was produced by John Feldmann (Papa Roach, The Used, Atreyu).

Black Veil Brides are now headliners all over the world, with band currently on the first leg of 'The Church Of The Wild Ones' world tour. The U.S. dates wrap up in San Francisco on March 8th.

The new power trio Pinnick Gales Pridgen is up next with their new track 'Hang On, Big Brother. The song comes off the band's self-titled debut album, which will be released on February 12th.

It's often been said that three-piece bands are the most expressive and most balanced musical units known to the rock world. CREAM, THE JIMI HENDRIX EXPERIENCE, RUSH, THE POLICE, PRIMUS... These legendary acts struck upon the correct ratio of musicianship and progressive songwriting by exploring uncharted musical territories while highlighting the individual talents within their collective ranks.

Now Magna Carta Records unveils PINNICK GALES PRIDGEN, a visionary power trio (emphasis on power) and a supergroup to boot, which is sure to take its rightful place in rock's hallowed halls.

Composed of bassist/vocalist Doug "dUg" Pinnick of the progressive metal band KING'S X, southpaw blues-rock guitarist Eric Gales (LAURYN HILL) and ambitious ambidextrous drummer and former THE MARS VOLTA member Thomas Pridgen, PINNICK GALES PRIDGEN unites three versatile artists, who demand, as much as share, the musical spotlight.

On the band's debut, each member of PINNICK GALES PRIDGEN infuses the material with his own set of musical influences, transforming his individual instrument into a lead instrument. The absolutely slamming musicianship frames the recognizable melodies of these songs and catapults the music into the realms of psychedelic blues, hard rock, and progressive soul/R&B.

"This record is three guys, with music in us, who said, 'Let's go for it,'" says Pinnick. "It was built upon raw energy."

Produced by Mike Varney, PINNICK GALES PRIDGEN's debut contains all the stinging bite and all-out sonic boom of KING'S X, THE MARS VOLTA and the ERIC GALES BAND. In addition, fans of artists as far ranging as Jimi Hendrix, CREAM, LIVING COLOUR, Stevie Ray Vaughan, TOOL, THE WHO, Stevie Wonder and LIQUID TENSION EXPERIMENT might find something meaningful in these meaty, extended tracks.

PINNICK GALES PRIDGEN show some of their influences with their brilliant version of seminal power trio CREAM's "Sunshine Of Your Love". Pinnick says, "Our version has a different vibe: it's tuned down, real low."

"I think the record has a combination of all of the good things about our playing," says Pridgen.

"This is just colossal," Gales concludes. "This is just some slammin' [stuff]. When you put a project out like this, man, people will want to hear that [material] live. I know I would."

"Pinnick Gales Pridgen" track listing:

1. Collateral Damage
2. Angels And Aliens
3. For Jasmine
4. Hang On, Big Brother
5. Wishing Well
6. Hate Crime
7. Lascivious
8. Black Jeans
9. Sunshine Of Your Love
10. Been So High (The Only Place To Go Is Down)
11. Me And You
12. The Greatest Love
13. Frightening

PINNICK GALES PRIDGEN is:
- Doug "dUg" Pinnick (KING'S X) - Bass and Vocals
- Eric Gales (ERIC GALES BAND, LAURYN HILL) - Guitar and Vocals
- Thomas Pridgen (THE MARS VOLTA) – Drums

Art of Dying have released another track from their successful 'Vices and Virtues' album. 'Raining' follows 'Die Trying,' 'Get Thru This' and 'Sorry' from the band. 'Raining' features former Three Days Grace vocalist Adam Gontier, and the band has dedicated the release to Gontier and his former group.

Art of Dying recently released discussed the reasons behind the dedication to Gontier and all of Three Days Grace:

"In light of Adam’s departure from the band last week, we are dedicating this lyric video to Adam, Brad, Neil, Barry and all of the Three Days Grace fans around the world. They have moved us with their music and we wish all of them the best on their new musical path’s and life journeys.

The story behind the recording: As many of you know Cale and Adam are cousins, and grew up together in Ontario. Adam was kind enough to sing the second verse and do some harmonies with us in the studio. It’s been such an honour having Adam on our record and learning from his unique style and benevolent nature.

In a solo posting at the band’s Facebook page, Art of Dying frontman Jonny Hetherington added, “You created powerful music that inspired us in so many ways. Wishing you the best on all of your musical paths and life’s journeys.”

After the success of the track 'Soldiers,' Las Vegas rockers Otherwise, featuring singer Adrian and his brother guitarist Ryan Patrick, along with guitarist Vassilios Metropoulous, bassist Flavio Ivan and drummer Corky Gainsford have another solid track getting airplay from their latest album 'True Love Never Dies.' 'I Don’t Apologize (1000 Pictures)' continues it's accent up the charts, and looks to surpass the chart position of 'Soldiers.' A new video for 'I Don’t Apologize (1000 Pictures)' has been released and it initially features a man in the desert near a lone leafless tree. He starts thumbing through photos of he and his ex, looking back on the good times he had. He then attaches the pictures to the tree with a clothespin on the branches. Those good times don't last, his girl was cheating and the video and track show him moving on from his past.

Otherwise toured through much of 2012, and continue on the road in 2013, as they are the opening act for Stone Sour and Papa Roach on their current North American tour.

The documentary is all about the history of Sound City Studios in Van Nuys, California, where so many classic albums were recorded. 'Sound City: Real To Reel' will be available in theaters, on DVD and on demand starting February 1st. The accompanying soundtrack album will be released on March 12th.

Rollingstone.com reports that in Park City, Springfield put air-guitar heroes to shame on "I've Done Everything for You," "Jessie’s Girl" and his new song with Grohl, "The Man That Never Was." Fogerty knocked out a fierce "Born on the Bayou," "Bad Moon Rising," "Proud Mary" and "Fortunate Son" with Grohl and Nicks wooed with a new song written with Grohl, "You Can't Fix This" – based on a poem she wrote after her godson’s overdose – and the Sundance-appropriate "snow covered hills" of "Landslide."

Here's the video of the show that has been posted so far:
