HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAVE GROHL

LAMONT’S MUSIC NOTES-JAN 14, 2020-TODAY DAVE GROHL TURNS FIFTY ONE. IS THERE ANYTHING THIS GUY CAN’T DO ? THINK OF IT, HE WAS THE DRUMMER FOR NIRVANA, AND THEN PICKS UP THE GUITAR AND FRONTS THE FOO FIGHTERS. PLUS HE TAKES ON A TON OF SIDE PROJECTS. HE WAS THE DRUMMER FOR QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, AND FRONTED THE DEATH METAL GROUP PROBOT. A LITTLE DAVE GROHL TRIVIA. HIS GREATEST INFLUENCE IN MUSIC WAS JOHN BONHAM. HE EVEN HAS THE LED ZEPPELIN DRUMMER’S TRADEMARK THREE CIRCLE LOGO TATTOOED ON HIS RIGHT TESTICLE.

HERE’S A FULL FOO FIGHTERS CONCERT FROM RIO

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ZAKK WYLDE

LAMONT’S MUSIC NOTES-JAN 14, 2020-WHEN IT COMES TO HEAVY METAL GUITARISTS, ZAKK WYLDE IS LARGER THAN LIFE. THIS GUY CAN SHRED ON GUITAR. HE WAS A 20 YEAR OLD UNKNOWN WHEN HE JOINED OZZY’S BAND IN 1987. SINCE 1990 HE’S FRONTED HIS OWN GROUP BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, AS WELL AS ZAKK SABBATH. WHEN WYLDE LAUNCHED BLACK LABEL SOCIETY IN 2006 HE WAS THE HEADLINER ON THE 2ND STAGE AT OZZFEST, THEN HE WOULD DO DOUBLE DUTY AND PLAY WITH OZZY ON CERTAIN DATES. MAYBE FOR HIS BIRTHDAY HE’LL GET ANOTHER OF HIS BULLS EYE DESIGNED GUITARS. HAPPY 53RD BIRTHDAY ZAKK WYLDE. WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU THIS YEAR AT BONE BASH AS OZZY’S GUITARIST.

TEMPLE OF THE DOG ‘HUNGER STRIKE’

LAMONT’S MUSIC NOTES-JAN 14, 2020-29 YEARS AGO TEMPLE OF THE DOG RELEASED THE SONG ‘HUNGER STRIKE.’ TEMPLE OF THE DOG WAS A SUPERGROUP PUT TOGETHER BY CHRIS CORNELL IN 1990. CORNELL FORMED THE BAND IN HONOR OF HIS FRIEND ANDREW WOOD WHO DIED OF A HEROIN OVERDOSE. WOOD WAS KEPT ALIVE FOR 3 DAYS ON LIFE SUPPORT, AND WHEN CORNELL AND HIS BANDMATES WENT TO VISIT HIM THEY THOUGHT THAT A ONE OFF ALBUM WOULD BE A FITTING TRIBUTE. THE ALBUM WOULD CONTAIN WOOD’S SOLO SONGS, ALONG WITH 2 SONGS WRITTEN BY CORNELL. RESPONDING TO CONCERNS THAT THEY WERE SOMEHOW EXPLOITING WOOD’S WORK, THEY DECIDED INSTEAD TO RELEASE AN ALBUM OF ALL ORIGINAL MATERIAL, AND CALLED THE PROJECT TEMPLE OF THE DOG. ‘HUNGER STRIKE’ WAS THE LAST SONG RECORDED FOR THE ALBUM ON THE DAY EDDIE VEDDER FLEW IN TO SEATTLE TO MEET HIS NEW BANDMATES IN WHAT WOULD BECOME PEARL JAM. CORNELL HAD HOPED TO SING THE HIGH AND LOW PARTS OF THE SONG HIMSELF AND JUST OVERDUB THE VOCALS. BUT HE WAS STRUGGLING WITH THE LOW REGISTER. VEDDIE STEPPED UP TO THE MICROPHONE AND IT MADE IT CLICK FOR CORNELL. IT ALSO MARKED THE FIRST RECORDED VOCAL FOR VEDDER ON A MAJOR RECORD. HERE’S ‘HUNGER STRIKE’ FROM TEMPLE OF THE DOG
