    Delain

    Delain is: Charlotte Wessels, Martijn Westerholt, Sander Zoer, Otto Schimmelpenninck van der Oije and Timo Somers. A lot has happened with Dutch band Delain since they unleashed their second album April Rain on the masses in 2009. An extensive headliner tour of Europe was followed by euphorically received tours of North and South America. The live impressions and pure energy that all this activity brought the band is now clearly audible in the material featured on their new material, the band's third. Delain took the time they needed to make We Are The Others, by far the most powerful, atmospheric and irresistible album of their career! All this despite the fact that the old music biz adage still holds…ah yes, the "difficult" third album! Delain's musical mastermind and keyboardist Martijn Westerholt nods in agreement. "For me these were the recording sessions from hell! I was working with a producer for the first time, so I had to let go of so many things. That's not easy for a control freak like me!", says Martijn, who mastered the situation brilliantly, despite any difficulties. Singer Charlotte Wessels also laughs and says, "Yeah, I already heard the same old wives' tale about the second album! But honestly, we have the perfect songs, songs that will blow away everything both live and on CD!" With their 2009 album, Delain had actually already arrived at a position that other bands work for years or even decades to get to. They firmly established a foothold at the very top of their genre alongside contemporaries like Evanescence and HIM. Now this Dutch formation is an indispensable part of the ever-growing, evermore exciting mainstream market for popular rock music of a darker nature. Against this backdrop, the expectations for the follow-up album to the frenetically acclaimed April Rain were very high indeed, both from the Delain fan base and from the band themselves. With We Are The Others, Delain have not only met these high expectations; they have far exceeded them. And they've made it all look easy in the process, broadening out of a niche market and audibly developing musically while remaining true to the successful sound that they lovingly developed over the years. While Martijn has been primarily responsible for songwriting duties, with Charlotte in increasing matter over the last two albums, for We Are The Others they relied more heavily than ever on team effort together with their musical partner Guus Eikens, also involving arranger Oliver Phillips in the composing department, stretching their experimental wings to try new things and ultimately came up with a more multifaceted overall sound than ever before. The band spent most of last summer with the "Tripod" producer-team, consisting of star producer Jacob Hellner (Rammstein, Clawfinger, Apocalyptica ...) and the Epicentre-Team (Fredrik Thomander und Anders Wikström / Scorpions, Backyard Babies...) in the TriPod-Studios in Stockholm, taking two months to collectively fine-tune the material for We Are The Others. "Never before have we gone as much into detail in writing the songs" Charlotte reports, referring to the multiple writing-session on songs and lyrics in Stockholm, where she was recording her vocals parallel in a second studio. "Jacob works very instinctively and has a great nose for good songs. At the same time he is the most critical producer I've ever worked with! I was around one day when they were recording the bass. Our bassist had to play the same riff over and over again, virtually for hours in a loop. Jacob listened closely and said, 'I hear a boring note in there somewhere. Try to fix that!' It was fucking hard to work with him, but it was also unbelievably fruitful and inspiring. The result is that what you hear in the songs is a highly tuned, compact band that plays well together, not some side project. We're incredibly proud of the result!" Martijn Westerholt, a workaholic himself, agrees entirely. "Our drummer was sent for two weeks of drum rehearsals to the Backyard Babies rehearsal studio located nearby. Jacob pushed every one of us to our absolute limit and in many cases beyond! He really knew how to get the maximum out of us individually, out of Delain as a band and of course out of our songs! You can find more on the recording sessions in the band's video studio at http://delain.posterous.com/. While the title We Are The Others may seem mysterious and conspiratorial at first, there is a very serious background: The lyrics to the title-track were inspired by the hate-crime against a British girl named Sophie Lancaster in 2007. She and her boyfriend were beaten comatose by a gang of youths, because of their goth looks. Sophie died from her injuries (check also: http://sophielancasterfoundation.com/). This tragedy sent shock waves throughout the world. DELAIN's response to this tragic case is expressed through the song We Are The Others. Charlotte says: "Sophie's story hit close to home for us, being part of a subculture ourselves but it's in no way an individual case; people are discriminated against -all the time- to the point of violence - based on their cultural or ethnic background everywhere. We Are The Others is our own 'outsiders anthem' for everybody who, deliberately or not, diverts from the norm. Whether it's by looking different, acting different, or choosing a different path in life then is expected from you. Delain have taken the same kind of path with We Are The Others. The band is armed with true musical hooks in tracks like "Are You Done With Me?" and "Get The Devil Out Of Me". And "I Want You" may well be the most macabre love story of the year, as Charlotte explains with a wonderfully diabolical laugh. "Although it lyricly starts like your typical romantic song, this tragic love story ends with the leading character running over her lover with a car; If she can't have him, then no one else damn well will! There aren't any actual autobiographical traits to the song – my boyfriend is doing fine (for now) – but it definitely contains some dark, most vengeful payback fantasies I admit." One of the album's less typical moments for a band of this genre is "Generation Me", where Delain demonstrate their eagerness to experiment as well as their topicality. "It's about the so-called 'iGeneration' where everyone's putting self-branding and this utopian kind of self-representation in front of everything else, we ourselves -whether we like it or not - are very much part of this generation, and in this song we make fun a little out of everyone taking themselves so seriously. With this kind of subject matter it's easy for us to be inspired. My lyrics have always been influenced by real life, from what happens around me" lyricist Wessels explains. This is also evident in Delain's powerful number "Where Is The Blood", with none other than Fear Factory shouter Burton C. Bell on guest vocals. "I met him at the Wacken Open Air festival. We immediately got along great and exchanged e-mail addresses. I think his raw voice is really perfect for the insane scream part on this track!"

    Dirkschneider

    Farewell To Accept: Metal Icon, Udo Dirkschneider is planning a special tour in which he will perform Accept songs one last time before he closes the chapter for good. Wacken – At a press conference in the VIP tent of Wacken Open Air, legendary metal singer, Udo Dirkschneider dropped some bombshell news on all those in attendance: the 62 year old cult musician announced his definitive farewell to the Accept song library. On a special tour beginning in 2016, he will perform songs by Accept one last time before he retires them for good. It will be a night of epic proportions. During this Accept farewell tour, he will only showcase songs from the Udo era of the band. The German rock staple will close a huge chapter of music history forever. In the early 80´s, the Solingen-raised singer skyrocketed to worldwide acclaim with the band Accept and with his unmistakeable voice he had several hits such as Balls To The Wall and Princess of the Dawn. Now he has announced that he will perform these much loved hits on this special tour one more time before he removes them from the set list forever. „I still love singing these songs live," Dirkschneider says. „The songs still are an important part of my catalog and still suit my voice very well. But at some point in your life, it´s just time to close the chapter. There has been so much talk and speculation about Accept, so I just want to give my last definitive musical statement about it and give my fans a chance to see me perform a complete concert of these songs one last time on stage." After this tour, Udo will only play songs from his extensive library of U.D.O. material. After being kicked out of Accept in the late 80´s, he garnered many classic hits with his new band in a long and successful career, such as Animal House, Timebomb, and Man and Machine. „There is enough high quality material to fill a two hour set with no problem," says Dirkschneider. „U.D.O. has been the band where I belong for 18 years and I want to pay tribute to them from now on." The musician will NOT perform this farewell tour under the name U.D.O. but simply as Dirkschneider.

    Lez Zeppelin

    All Girls. All Zeppelin. Since forming in 2004, the New York City-based quartet has toured throughout the United States and Europe to become the first and foremost female rock act to pay homage to Led Zeppelin and to garner rave reviews across the board. Although, LEZ ZEPPELIN stays true to the musically audacious spirit of the original, delivering the legendary rock band's blistering arrangements and monstrous sound note-for-note at what often are sold-out frenzied shows around the world, the four women that make for the four essentially diverse elements of the band bring their own unique energy and passion to the music. Indeed, this may be the thing that serves most to set them apart. But then, there is also the seamless and strangely appropriate way in which LEZ ZEPPELIN inject their gender-bending performance into material that is often thought of as an historically male expression. For those who believe this to be the case, all that can be said is: times have changed. Live, the group takes its lead from what Led Zeppelin did in performance, seeking to create an intense experience from the in-the-moment interaction between all the players to both recount and reinvent the musical moment for the audience.

    Carlos Mencia

    Mencia began his career doing stand-up on amateur night at the world renowned comedy club, Laugh Factory. He later showcased at The Comedy Store and became a regular, performing nightly. After he found success on the L.A comedy circuit, Mencia was named "International Comedy Grand Champion" from Buscando Estrellas (the Latino version of Star Search). This led to appearances on "In Living Color," "The Arsenio Hall Show," "Moesha" and "An Evening at the Improv." Mencia comes from a humble background, born in San Pedro Sula, Honduras, the 17th of 18 children. His parents sent him to the United States when he was about three months old, where he was raised in the Maravilla Projects in Los Angeles, California by his aunt and uncle. In his early teens, Mencia moved back to Honduras because his family wanted him to avoid the destructive gang culture of East Los Angeles. When Mencia later returned to Los Angeles, he showed such educational prowess that he was immediately promoted to the tenth grade. Soon after, he successfully graduated from Garfield High School. Mencia continued his journey up the comedy ladder by headlining "The Three Amigos" tour with Freddy Soto and Pablo Francisco in 2002, which sold out in record time around the United States. He was also featured in the independent films, "Outta Time" and "29 Palms" and starred in guest spots on "The Shield" and "The Bernie Mac Show," among others. In 2002, he received a CableACE Award nomination for Best Stand-Up Comedy Special for his HBO special. That same year, "Mind of Mencia" went into development. The show was an instant hit and after the first season, Comedy Central signed Mencia back for his own original stand-up special, "Carlos Mencia: No Strings Attached." The special was the first Comedy Central Stand-up Special DVD to achieve Platinum sales status. "Mind of Mencia" debuted on Comedy Central in early 2005. It became one of the strongest shows in the network's history, averaging about 1.5 million total viewers. "Mind of Mencia" was executive produced by Carlos Mencia and Robert Morton ("Late Night with David Letterman"). Mencia starred opposite Ben Stiller and Michelle Monaghan in the Farrelly Brothers' hit feature film, THE HEARTBREAK KID (DreamWorks And in the family comedy OUR FAMILY WEDDING (FOX Searchlight) alongside America Ferrara and Forrest Whitaker. In 2007, Mencia embarked on a USO Tour to the Persian Gulf to entertain the troops serving overseas. For his 2008 trip, Mencia visited Kuwait to host "Operation MySpace," an exclusive concert for American Troops in the Middle East alongside Jessica Simpson and The Pussycat Dolls. The special aired on FX in April 2008. Mencia's 2009 USO tour had stops in Turkey, Kirkuk, Baghdad, Qatar, Afghanistan, and many other countries. Most recently, Mencia has gone back to his comedic roots, performing at a number of comedy venues – allowing him to share his newest material with a more intimate audience. His current tour, called the "C 4 Urself Tour," has been making stops all around the country, performing to eager audiences. Carlos Mencia presently lives in Los Angeles.

    Shawn Colvin

    In an era when female singer-songwriters are ever more ubiquitous, Shawn Colvin stands out as a singular and enduring talent. Her songs are slow-release works of craft and catharsis that become treasured, lifetime companions for their listeners. As a storyteller, Colvin is both keen and warm-hearted, leavening even the toughest tales with tenderness, empathy, and a searing sense of humor. In the 19 years since the release of her debut album, Colvin has won three Grammy Awards, released eight albums, maintained a non-stop national and international touring schedule, appeared on countless television and radio programs, had her songs featured in major motion pictures, and created a remarkable cannon of work. Combined sales of her albums total more than 2.5 million copies in the United States alone, and Colvin continues to perform at least 50–60 shows a year. Over the years she has shared the stage and toured with legendary artists such as Jackson Browne, Bonnie Raitt, Bruce Hornsby, Emmylou Harris, and Lyle Lovett. She has toured internationally throughout her career, returning to places as near as the UK and Europe as far as Asia, Australia, and New Zealand. She was honored to perform with David Broza and Jackson Browne in a very special sunrise concert at the base of the 2000-year-old fortress of Masada in Southern Israel, overlooking the Dead Sea. The concert was broadcast on PBS stations throughout the U.S. in the late fall of 2007 and in early 2008. Colvin's eighth studio album, 2012's All Fall Down, was produced by Buddy Miller and recorded in Nashville at Miller's home studio, and featured guest spots from Emmylou Harris, Alison Krauss, Jakob Dylan, and others.

    Most artists who have experienced the levels of success and adulation Colin Hay has would be content to sit back and earn a living walking to the mailbox and back. Yet Hay is restless, eager to move forward and continually hone his craft while continuing to challenge himself. Hay's solo shows intersperse classic and new songs with hilarious, poignant, and downright surreal stories drawn from his often unbelievable experiences over the past three decades. "I've been doing these solo tours for a number of years," he explains, "going back to the same places and building audiences by doing the best shows I can." Themes of redemption and renewal come naturally to Colin Hay, as he is in the midst of a remarkable renaissance.

    Ben Folds

    Ben Folds is widely regarded as one of the major music influencers of our generation. He’s spent over a decade sharing the stage with some of the world’s greatest symphony orchestras – from Sydney, Australia to the Kennedy Center, performing his pop hits and his critically acclaimed concerto for Piano and Orchestra. For five seasons he was a judge on the popular NBC series “The Sing Off,” which catapulted the art of a cappella into the national spotlight, and helped launch the careers of numerous a cappella groups. Throughout his career, Folds has created an enormous body of genre-bending musical art that includes pop albums as the front man for Ben Folds Five, multiple solo rock albums, as well as unique collaborative records with artists from Sara Bareilles and Regina Spektor, to Weird Al and William Shatner. His most recent album is a blend of pop and classical original works, in part recorded with the revered classical sextet yMusic that soared to #1 on both the Billboard classical and classical crossover charts. Beginning this Fall, Folds will be back to pound pianos again with cross country solo touring reminiscent of his earliest solo tours, where he defied skeptics by delivering a high energy rock performance using the intimacy of just a piano. In addition to his self-described love of performing and making music “for humans,” Folds is also an avid photographer, and is a member of the distinguished Sony Artisans of Imagery. Folds is also an advocate for music education and music therapy as a member of Artist Committee of the Americans For The Arts, and he serves as a member of the Board of Directors of the Nashville Symphony.

    Donnie learned how to sing from his Mother and then from Tony Bennett and Marvin Gaye. In 1970, as a member of the Jaggerz, Donnie earned a gold record for writing and singing the No. 1 song “The Rapper.” In or around 1978, Donnie was asked to join “Wild Cherry” (“Play That Funky Music, White Boy”) in the group’s waning days. Donnie met Mark Avsec, his future collaborator and partner, in “Wild Cherry” and the two of them began discussing plans for a recording project. Oddly enough, Mark’s first love (at the age of 15) was a huge fan of “The Rapper” and Mark thought that was somehow profound. Then again, Mark sees profundity in a good many things.

    Steven Wright

    Academy Award winner Steven Wright is a prototype comedian that many others continually try to follow. One of four children, Wright was raised in Burlington, MA. Upon graduating from Emerson College and holding a bevy of odd jobs, Steven attended an "open mike" audition and became a regular performer at Ding Ho's Comedy Club and Chinese Restaurant in Cambridge, MA. It was during this time that Steven got his big break and was booked for his first "Tonight Show" appearance on Friday, August 6, 1982. The king of late night enjoyed the performance so much he invited Steven to appear again the following Thursday, a rarity on "The Tonight Show." His back-to-back appearances helped put his fledgling career into high gear. The comic soon found himself performing his off-beat routines on "Saturday Night Live," "Late Night with David Letterman," and numerous trips back to "The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson." Wright expanded his comedy career to include comedy albums, film and television appearances. His 1985 debut album, I Have A Pony, earned him a Grammy nomination. In 1985, Steven starred in his first HBO Special "A Steven Wright Special." In 1989, Steven was honored with an Academy Award for Best Short Film for his film entitled "The Appointments of Dennis Jennings" in which he starred and co-wrote. Other stars of the film included "Roseanne's" Laurie Metcalf and British comedian, Rowan Atkinson. In September of 1990, Steven starred in his second stand-up special for HBO called "Wicker Chairs and Gravity." The special included stand-up from The Winter Garden Theatre in Toronto and a short film shot on location in New York and New Jersey. Steven has been seen in numerous films including "Desperately Seeking Susan," Mike Meyers' "So I Married An Axe Murderer," Oliver Stone's "Natural Born Killers," and Nora Ephron's "Mixed Nuts." Steven was the voice of the DJ, K-Billy in "Reservoir Dogs" and starred with John Cleese and Jack Palance in New Line's animated film, "The Swan Princess" as the voice of Speed, the turtle. Steve also appeared as a sitcom actor in MGM's "Speechless" with Harry Shearer, and as a Mountie in the MGM release "Canadian Bacon", opposite the late John Candy. In 1999, Steven played a guest starring role in Albert Brooks' film "The Muse" starring Brooks, Sharon Stone, Andie MacDowell, and Jeff Bridges. In '98 he played a supporting role in Dave Chappelle's "Half-Baked" and was a featured voice in "Babe 2: Pig in the City". Steven wrote, directed and stars in the 1999 short film, "One Soldier," the story of a man obsessed with the unanswerable questions in life. The film was screened at numerous film festivals and can be seen on the Independent Film Channel. Steven was also seen in the Jim Jarmusch film "Coffee and Cigarettes" and the film "The Aristocrats." In October of 2006, Steven premiered the hour special, "When The Leaves Blow Away," on Comedy Central. The special was released on DVD in April 2006 and includes Steven's 1999 short film "One Soldier" and a segment of a 1988 performance at a Boston comedy club. Steven's second CD, "I Still Have A Pony," was released by Comedy Central Records on September 25, 2007. The CD earned Steven his second Grammy Award nomination for Best Comedy Album. Steven was honored as the first inductee into The Boston Comedy Hall of Fame on December 15, 2008. The ceremony included performances by legendary Boston comedians Tony V, Don Gavin, Lenny Clarke, Kenny Rogerson, Steve Sweeney, Mike Donovan, Barry Crimmins, Mike McDonald and Fran Solomita. On June 2, 2009, Warner Bros. Records re-released Steven's groundbreaking, Grammy nominated first CD, "I Have A Pony," packaged with Steven's first HBO special, "A Steven Wright Special" on DVD; part of Warner Bros. Records 50th anniversary celebration. On June 15, 2013 Steven received The Johnny Carson Comedy Legend Award. The award is given each year to a celebrated comedian who has been influenced by Carson in some way and has left his or her own mark on the comedy world. In past years, award recipients have included Dick Cavett, Cloris Leachman and Ed Asner. Steven was seen in a guest role on the hit FX series, "Louie". He is a regular guest with David Letterman, Jay Leno, Conan O'Brien, Jimmy Kimmel and Craig Ferguson and continues touring the U.S., Canada and overseas.

    Red Elvises

    If Igor and Red Elvises aren't in the middle of a tour, they are getting ready for the next one - this is a group that is constantly in motion and consistently evolving. Singer, songwriter, guitarist and showman extraordinaire Igor Yuzov is perpetually globetrotting and in the process he has found scores of wildly talented, entertaining musicians to bring into the fold of this increasingly international party band. Red Elvises started as a Russian group, playing what they dubbed "Siberian Surf Rock". Since then the band has included musicians from many other countries including United States, Israel, Puerto Rico and Bulgaria, to name just a few. Everyone who performs with them for any length of time brings something different both energetically and musically. At various times shows have included keyboards, accordions, sax, clarinet, trumpet, flute, banjo, mandolin, tuba and many other instruments. Old and new fans alike can expect to be surprised at shows again and again, however the roots of Red Elvises remain the same: Igor's unique brand of humor combined with guitar based rock'n'roll that makes audiences want to sing, dance, scream and shout. German born Igor Yuzov grew up in the former Soviet Union, where folk music was the norm and rock'n'roll was illegal. A rebellious streak, however, led him to seek out the forbidden records, which could be secretely traded in some places for those who knew where to look. As soon as it became possible, Igor left Russia for America with his folk band Limpopo. The "Crazy Russian Folk'n'Roll" group were personally greeted by Ronald Reagan and proceeded to win Ed McMahon's Star Search. Red Elvises began in 1995 after Igor dreamed that Elvis Presley came to him and told him to start playing rock'n'roll. Not one to say no to the King, Igor and his Russian friends started playing on Santa Monica's 3rd Street Promenade. Their street musician days did not last long, however, as they drew such huge crowds that the City of Santa Monica brought them to court and ordered them off the streets. Since then Red Elvises have been constantly touring, with occasional breaks from the road to record an album or take part in film and television projects. This constant work for the last 15 years has led to them gaining a world-wide following, with successful tours all over North America, Europe and Russia (Red Elvises bootlegs have been found in Siberia). Igor & Red Elvises have declined several major record deals, prefering to maintain independent status and produce all their own work. This includes 11 studio albums, one live album, a live concert DVD and a Greatest Hits compilation. Added to their long resume is work in film (Six String Samurai, Mail Order Bride, Armageddon, Skippy) and television (Melrose Place, Fastlane, Penn and Teller's Sin City Extravaganza, VH-1 Behind the Music, MTV). They can be found playing everything from large festivals to private parties, small venues to massive stages such as 2005's Live 8 Benefit Concert. Whatever the event, wherever Igor & Red Elvises go, they bring the party with them.

    Hanson

    Over their first 20 years, pop-rock trio HANSON, made up of brothers Isaac, Taylor and Zac Hanson, have made a significant mark on the music world. Five years building a fanbase as a local independent band led to a major label deal and a meteoric rise with the 1997 international smash single MMMBop, from their debut album Middle Of Nowhere. A long line of hits, four more studio albums, multiple Grammy nominations and over 16 million album sales followed. Over their second decade, the band has charted their own course running an independent label while maintaining a coveted connection with their global fanbase, and in 2007 they launched a grassroots campaign to support poverty and HIV/AIDS relief in Africa, TakeTheWalk.net. Since the release and world tour behind 2013's acclaimed sixth studio album ANTHEM, the band has been earning more accolades, including writing, producing and collaborating with other artists. Recent collaborations include the song 'Top Of The World' which was produced and co-written with Blues Traveler and released in Spring 2015, and the infectious pop song 'Unbelievable' performed with Owl City. The band also began an entirely new endeavor - their own craft beer company Hanson Brothers Beer, which launched in Spring 2013. The band recognized early on that longevity could not be built without building community with their fanbase, which they have focused on strengthening through special music released directly on their website, unique fan focused events like their destination concert Back To The Island and tours like the upcoming 10-city Roots And Rock N Roll Tour, starting October 7th. The tour features two nights in 10 major cities, cultivating a deeper musical experience for fans by focusing on a night of rare songs and fan favorites spanning their six studio albums, and a night of cover songs by artists who have influenced them. The band will also be merging the worlds of music and craft beer by launching their flagship pale ale, Mmmhops, in many of the cities on the tour. "This tour is all about celebrating our musical journey, starting with a night of cover songs that have inspired us, followed by a night of rare tunes and fan favorites. Each night will be a totally unique experience," said Isaac Hanson. The band's most recent studio release ANTHEM, which they wrote and produced, was recorded the old-fashioned way - live, in one room. The album captures the essence of the soulful trio, highlighting their signature harmonies merged with harder hitting arrangements featuring funk inspired horn stabs and blistering guitar riffs. ANTHEM comes out of the gate with the bluesy bite of 'Fired Up' and unstoppable grooves like 'I've Got Soul' and 'Tragic Symphony' and the epic 'You Can't Stop Us'. The album's debut single 'Get The Girl Back' highlighted the influence of 60's Soul and Rock 'n' Roll, captivating fans and critics alike. The cinematic music video featured the band alongside an ensemble cast of their friends led by actress/writer Nikki Reed (Thirteen) and Kat Dennings (2 Broke Girls, Thor), Drake Bell (Drake & Josh), Paul McDonald (American Idol), Drew Seeley (Another Cinderella Story), and newcomer Alex Beh. "It has that vibe of a big, sweaty rock show that you'd want to be at," Taylor Hanson says. "The video invites people into the first chapter of a story that we hope inspires everyone to want to stick around for more." Also featured on 'Get The Girl Back' are friends Michael 'Fitz' Fitzpatrick and Joe Karnes, from Los Angelesbased Indie Soul band Fitz And The Tantrums. "It's hard to find bands whose sound and aesthetic is similar to ours," Zac says, "But we connected on a love of '60s soul and pop". For 23 years the three brothers have focused on the love of their craft, buoyed by an independent spirit which has allowed them to navigate the changing music business without sacrificing the quality of their work or their coveted relationship with fans all over the world. This fall's Roots And Rock N Roll Tour celebrates that strong foundation musically, and sets the stage for new projects on the horizon.

    X

    Three decades after the inception of X, one thing is clear: X was not only one of the most influential bands to crash out of the punk movement of the late '70s, but the band's music continues to be sonically groundbreaking today. Songs written during the group's inception are as relevant and inventive today as they were in 1977. The fact is, no one sounds like X and no one ever will. It's not surprising when you consider the group's unique beginnings, which can only be attributed to fate. On the same day with nearly the exact same wording, two want-ads appear in a local music rag. One was sent in by a guitarist named Billy Zoom, the other by bassist who called himself John Doe. Zoom, a rockabilly rebel who'd performed with Gene Vincent, had read a negative review of a band called the Ramones. It said they only played three chords and they played 'em too fast. So naturally, he went to see them. The show was at the Golden West Ballroom in the L.A. suburb of Norwalk in early '77, and as soon as the Ramones started to perform, Zoom realized that, musically, he'd found exactly what he wanted to do with his life. Doe, who was originally from the Baltimore area, was already down with the East Coast CBGB's scene and by the time the two got in the same room together after responding to each other's ads, it seemed it was meant to be. They performed a few shows with various drummers before a poet with no ambition of being a singer would enter the picture. Doe found her in Venice Beach, at a poetry reading. He liked her poems so much he offered to perform them in his band. The poet, Exene Cervenka, had just moved to town from Florida and she told him, no offense, but if anyone was gonna perform her poems, it would be her, and she soon ended up in the band. Zoom was skeptical about someone's girlfriend being in the band. After they did their first show with Exene, he didn't know exactly what it was she had, but he knew it was magic. After a succession of drummers, Doe was at the underground punk club the Masque in Hollywood one night, checking out a band called the Eyes, which featured a pre-Go-Go's bass player named Charlotte Caffey. He called Zoom immediately and said he'd found their drummer. Doe told him he played with a parade snare and hit it hard as a hammer. Zoom told him to promise him anything. His name was D.J. Bonebrake and he quickly signed on. The band was now complete, and X would soon emerge from the young punk scene as one of its most successful offspring. The band's early albums, Los Angeles (1980), produced by Ray Manzarek of the Doors, Wild Gift (1981), and Under the Big Black Sun (1982) explored dark love and an even darker L.A. with the unflinching eye of a Raymond Chandler novel. Doe and Cervenka would marry and later divorce, but they'd always remain soulmates. As they released each ensuing album, More Fun in theNew World(1983) and Ain't Love Grand (1985), the band continued to grow sonically and politically, fearlessly mixing genres without ever losing its center. As each member went on to explore diverse careers—careers that included acting, art, writing, producing and multiple side projects."

    It was on a Thursday night, 16th October 1980, when millions of living rooms across the UK, were set on fire by a blazing TV performance by Adam and the Ants. After 3 ferocious, minutes of 'Dog Eat Dog', on the weekly music show, Top of the Pops, the phenomenon rapidly began and they would go on to dominate the charts with extraordinary success. But this was no 'overnight success', Adam Ant had been working hard behind the warpaint and feathers for his moment. The journey had started at Hornsey College of Art, where Adam had teamed up with some college friends to form the band Bazooka Joe. With Adam on bass guitar, they played the pubs and colleges around London and it was on a night in November 1975 that he saw a group that was to change his life forever. The Sex Pistols played their first ever gig, supporting Bazooka Joe, at St Martins College of Art and the explosive punk band inspired Adam to start something new. He formed The Ants and performed live repeatedly at many venues including the Vortex and The Roxy before getting a Thursday night residency at the famous Marquee club in London. The band built a huge cult following despite being unpopular with the established music press, and in 1979 they released their debut album, Dirk Wears White Søx, which topped the independent chart on release. It has been said that if Adam and the Ants had appeared on television at this time, then they would have 'made it' but the moderate success made the rest of the band despondent and in early 1980, the Ants left Adam, after an offer to work with the former Sex Pistols manager, Malcolm McLaren. With a new sense of freedom and clarity, Adam immediately put his ideas for a new 'warrior' sound into practice and within months had put together a fresh band that included two drummers. The new band signed a major label deal and recorded the album 'Kings of the Wild Frontier'. Released in November 1980 it became a worldwide hit, spending 12 weeks at number 1. The singles, 'Kings of the Wild Frontier' and 'Antmusic' both hit number 2 in the UK chart and 'Dog Eat Dog' reached number 4. "Antmania" swept the nation and after winning the Brit Award for 'Best British Album', Adam Ant became one of the most publicised faces in Britain. In May 1981, 'Stand and Deliver' hit the number 1 spot and stayed there for 5 weeks, and became his most successful single, winning him the prestigious Ivor Novello Award For Songwriting. On it's release, the follow up album and single 'Prince Charming' went straight to number one and a further 12 singles went top 30, at one point, Adam had 8 singles in the top 40. . . in one week! He became the first VJ (video jockey) on MTV and at a time when videos were the most popular way to promote music, Adam's charismatic performances in some of the most lavish visuals of the period paved the way for his acting career. His first solo album, 'Friend or Foe' continued his success in the USA, delivering 3 top twenty hits on the Billboard Top 100. 'Goody Two Shoes' was also a number 1 in both the UK and Australia and after being voted 'Sexiest Man Alive' by the viewers of MTV, he celebrated this success in the USA with a 'Best New Artist' Grammy nomination. In 1983 he appeared on NBC Television Network's 'Motown 25 Special', alongside Michael Jackson and Diana Ross. The second solo album 'Strip' produced the top 5 UK hit 'Puss 'n Boots' but the follow-up single 'Strip' and the sexy spectacular video was banned by the BBC. While recording his third solo album 'Vive Le Rock' with legendary producer, Tony Visconti, Adam set out on an acting career by appearing in a theatre production of Joe Orton's 'Entertaining Mr Sloane' at The Royal Exchange in Manchester. In 1985 Adam performed 'Vive Le Rock' at Live Aid and spent the next few years concentrating solely on acting in a string of films including Nomads, Junk and Slam Dance! as well as appearing in several US TV shows such as La Femme Nikita, Northern Exposure, The Equalizer and Sledge Hammer! During the 1990's, Adam again, split his time between acting and music, returning to the studio to record and release the album 'Manners and Physique' in 1990 which included the UK top 20 hit, 'Room at the Top'. The follow up album, 'Persuasion' remains in limbo without an official release to this day, but in 1994 Adam recorded his next album, 'Wonderful' in London's famous Abbey Road studios. Released the following year, the album, along with 'Wonderful' the single and the follow up 'Gotta Be A Sin' were accompanied by successful tours of the UK and USA. It would be twelve years before he would play live again, with an acoustic show, in 2007, at the Bloomsbury Theatre in London, where he read extracts from 'Stand and Deliver' his recently released autobiography. In 2008, Adam was presented with the 'Q Music Icon Award' placing him alongside fellow recipients Paul McCartney and Bryan Ferry. This rekindled recognition resulted in a series of low key gigs in 2010 which enabled him to select a new band and to perform several sell-out shows in London. In 2011, Adam performed at the Hard Rock Calling in London's Hyde Park and over the year continued playing live to over 250,000 people. After 2 successful tours the USA, mainland Europe and Australia, Adam released his first album for 16 years: Adam Ant is the Blueblack Hussar in Marrying the Gunner's Daughter. 2014 saw Adam return to his roots to perform the Dirk Wears White Søx album at a sellout show at Hammersmith Apollo, along with 2 live performances for Record Store Day in London that afternoon. This coincided with the release of a limited edition white vinyl of the Dirk album. Adam then closed the year with 4 more performances at Islington's Assembly Hall. Due to public demand Adam toured the Dirk album early in 2015 at a series of intimate concerts around the country to much critical acclaim with several of the venues selling out within minutes. A DVD of the 2014 Apollo show was made available and Adam finished off 2015 working on the re-mastered anniversary release of his iconic Kings of the Wild Frontier album, which was released prior to Adam embarking on the Kings of the Wild Frontier Live 2016 tour throughout the UK. With the LP back in the charts, the sold out tour had Adam playing the classic and now iconic album, in sequence, to over 30,000 people, which culminated at Brixton Academy in London in a true riotous Ant gathering with fans coming together from all around the world to be part of the spectacle. Over the summer Adam took part in the Isle of Wight festival closely followed by 3 headlining slots at each of the Rewind festivals in Perth, Cheshire and Henley. After the phenomenal success of the Kings tour Adam returns to the Roundhouse venue in Camden for one additional sold out date, in his hometown, to finish off the year in a glorious celebration of style and jubilation.

    The Charlie Daniels Band

    The Charlie Daniels Band was formed in 1970, with Charlie Daniels joined by Barry Barnes (guitar), Mark Fitzgerald (bass), Fred Edwards and Gary Allen (drums), and Taz DiGregorio (keyboards). They started recording southern rock-styled albums for Kama Sutra. Although a multi-instrumentalist, Daniels was a limited vocalist, but his voice was well suited to the talking-style "Uneasy Rider", which reached the US Top 10 in 1973. He followed it with his anthem for southern rock, "The South's Gonna Do It". In 1974, Daniels had members of The Marshall Tucker Band and The Allman Brothers Band join him onstage in Nashville. It was so successful that he decided to make his so-called Volunteer Jam an annual event. It led to some unlikely combinations of artists such as James Brown performing with Roy Acuff, and the stylistic mergers have included Crystal Gayle singing the blues with the Charlie Daniels Band. The Charlie Daniels Band underwent some personnel changes on 1975's Nightrider, with Tom Crain, Charlie Hayward and Don Murray (3) replacing Barnes, Fitzgerald and Allen respectively. When Daniels moved to Epic in 1976, there was a concerted effort to turn the band into a major concert attraction, despite the fact that at 6 feet 4 inches tall and weighing 20 stone Daniels was no teenage idol: he hid his face under an oversized cowboy hat. The albums sold well, and in 1979, when recording his Million Mile Reflections album, he recalled a 20s poem, "The Mountain Whipporwill", by Stephen Vincent Benet. The band developed this into "The Devil Went Down To Georgia", in which Johnny outplays the Devil to win a gold fiddle. Daniels overdubbed his fiddle seven times to create an atmospheric recording that topped the US country charts and reached number 3 in the US pop charts. It was also a UK Top 20 success. In 1980 the band recorded "In America" for the hostages in Iran, and then in 1982, "Still In Saigon" , about Vietnam. The band were featured on the soundtrack for Urban Cowboy and also recorded the theme for the Burt Reynolds movie Stroker Ace. The 13th Volunteer Jam was held in 1987, but financial and time constraints meant the event was put on temporary hiatus (it resumed four years later). In the late 80s Daniels appeared in the movie Lone Star Kid and published a book of short stories, but continued touring and playing his southern boogie to adoring audiences. During the 90s Daniels updated "The Devil Went Down To Georgia" with Johnny Cash and continued in his politically incorrect way - in simple language, he advocates both lynching and red-baiting; not a man to stand next to at the bar. He signed a new recording contract with Liberty in 1993, but also targeted the white gospel market through a deal with Sparrow Records. The albums The Door and Steel Witness earned Daniels several awards from the Christian recording community. In 1997 Daniels inaugurated his own Blue Hat Records and also released his first children's album, By The Light Of The Moon: Campfire Songs & Cowboy Tunes, on the Sony Wonder label. Two years later he took his Volunteer Jam event on the road for the first time.

    Rodriguez

    Rodriguez, the legendary singer-songwriter known only by his surname, is a self-taught guitarist. He began performing in bars and clubs around the city of Detroit in the 1960s, as the city suffered post-industrial urban decay. It was there that he recorded two studio albums, Cold Fact in 1969 and Coming from Reality in 1971. These compositions went unnoticed in the U.S. and Rodriguez eventually turned his efforts elsewhere, earning a bachelor's degree in philosophy from Wayne State University, running for political office and working construction and factory jobs to support his family. In the mid-1970s, his music gained airplay in Australia and New Zealand and he toured the area finding limited success as an overseas performer. Rodriguez was unaware that he had reached legendary folk-rock super stardom status in South Africa, where mistaken rumors circulated that he had perished. As it turns out, South African anti-Apartheid activists and musicians alike were inspired by his counterculture lyrics. In the late 1990s, South African fans finally sought him out, leading to the unanticipated renaissance of his music career. Their story is told in the 2012 Oscar award-winning documentary, Searching for Sugar Man, which has given Rodríguez a new measure of fame in the U.S. and his music is now reaching audiences worldwide. Rodriguez now tours extensively in South Africa, Australia, Europe, and the U.S., where he takes thoughtful appreciation in greeting longtime fans, and a new generation of listeners who find common ground in his music. His albums, Cold Fact and Coming from Reality have since been re-released on Light in the Attic records and the Searching for Sugar Man soundtrack is available on Sony Legacy. International media attention and accolades have since been bestowed upon both the film and the music. He has perhaps one of the most unique true stories of fleeting fame finally realized. Rodriguez is enjoying the collective heartfelt dream of a musician, beating the odds and finding a place in music history. With a music career that has withstood the test of time; the story of Rodriguez is one of sweet success.
