“More than words” live – Steven Tyler & Nuno Bettencourt

In Kief musiek deur griffinRek jou bek

Voordat Chopper en die Image Engineer bietjie piele gevleg het met die manne van Kings Of Chaos by die press conference in Kaapstad, het Steven Tyler en Nuno Bettencourt besluit om die mense te treat met ‘n impromptu performance van Extreme se “More Than Words”. Image Engineer het vir ons so stukkie beeldmateriaal gevang.

Net as blote bysaak: Hoe hierdie press conferences gewoonlik werk is dat ‘n groep mediamense bymekaarkom, vrae vra en dan (as die artist so voel) opsplit in kleiner groepies vir one-on-one sessions vir so 20 minute. Watkykjy was saam met Channel24 (cool) en 2Oceansvibe Radio (???). Laasgenoemde het ‘n over eager fangirl gestuur wat met haar tiete in die ouens se gesigte gaan sit het soos sy op hulle tafel geklouter het met haar Macbook en basies almal se tyd gevreet het met simpelgeit, veral Channel24 s’n. Beste van alles is dat hierdie girl self nie eers die fokken show gaan kyk nie. Weet so nie hoe om met maatjies te deel nie. Seker ‘n oudste en enigste kind. Gods, as marabse soos ons kan professioneel wees, kan die ander at least fokken probeer. Toe vra sy nogal na die tyd of ons vir haar foto’s kan stuur.
Die kort antwoord is “fokof” en die lang antwoord is: “Bring jou eie fokken skietgoed oorlog toe, soldaat”

Genoeg gebitch, hierso is die tune. Oom Tyler lyk of hy nog die woorde leer, maar hulle het vir hom uitgekry.

    Rock and roll royalty. The Kings of Chaos to rock Cape Town

    In Watkykjy Interviews deur Chopper Charlie1 Eiertjies

    “Do we look as good as we feel?” quips Steven Tyler and so the Kings of Chaos 2014 press conference kicks off.

    The rock and roll all star team known as the Kings of Chaos are hitting South Africa for the second time ever, this time including Steven Tyler (Aerosmith), Billy Gibbons (ZZ Top), Matt Sorum (The Cult, Guns ‘n Roses, Velvet Revolver), Duff McKagan (Guns ‘n Roses, Velvet Revolver), Nuno Bettencourt (Extreme), Gilby Clarke (Guns ‘n Roses) and Robin Zander (Cheap Trick).
    kings of chaosA “dream team of dream teams,” as Matt Sorum points out during the presser in Cape Town. He should know as Matt is the mastermind behind the concept, getting legendary rockers together and compiling a setlist of the various artists’ hits including a couple of nods to other rock greats including The Beatles, Mott the Hoople, Bob Dylan and others.

    For Matt, it was about a dream, a bucket list of bucket lists and a “celebration of rock and roll”. Says Matt: “We rehearsed back in LA. It’s a great thing for us to re-educate ourselves on the greatest rock and roll ever written. For me it’s an education again, I feel like a kid. I feel like I’m 20 years old and I am listening to music for the very first time and then I am tripping out when I am on stage with these guys.”
    No wonder the eccentric Billy Gibbons prefers to call it “a collision of enthusiasm”. Continues Steven Tyler: “It’s about rock and roll and how it gets into your soul. It’s like dancing around tribal fires. There’s something about rock and roll, the backbeat, it’s infectious and you can’t deny it.”
    kings of chaos3(Little surprise that Matt calls Steven Tyler “a great cheerleader of rock and roll”. Indeed.)

    In an interview a bit later I ask Matt, Duff and Nuno about their first rock and roll epiphany – that Damascus moment, normally when you’re quite young, when you switch on and realise that a rock song/ band/ album is crawling into your soul and moving you in ways you never knew about.

    For Matt, “It was the Ed Sullivan Show, it was the Beatles. 1966. I was six years old and I pointed to the TV and I said to my mom ‘drummer!” (Cue Nuno and Duff’s disbelief that Matt was old enough to see the Beatles on TV.)

    Queen was the band that did it for Nuno: “The album ‘Queen II’ just killed me. That was it. I was like ‘Wow!’ I just couldn’t believe the vocals and rock and composition and everything together could sound like it did.”

    Duff grew up in a musical family, the youngest of 10, “so there were records everywhere, guitars, drums, bass, everything.”

    Continues Matt: “Duff is a lot like me, he had older brothers and sisters turning him onto shit. I had two older brothers that gave me like Jimi Hendrix and The Cream and all these cool albums that they would bring home and I just became part of that listening experience.”

    When I press Matt to reveal how much of the setlist are hits and how much are his personal favourites, he prefers to sidestep defiantly: “It’s all good shit. It’s great rock and roll. It’s a buffet if you will.”
    kings of chaos2A rock buffet for fans definitely, with choice cuts by these seasoned veterans of the business. These guys are not here to chase album sales, they are here to have fun, play each other’s songs, try new lineups, put on a show for the loyal fans, but also to “hang out together” as Matt says and just have a blast with classic rock songs.

    Fitting then, to give the last words to the grizzly ZZ Top riffmaster Billy Gibbons: “It’s gonna be good, we’re ready to ROCK!”

    Kings of Chaos will be performing their last show for 2014 tonight at the Grand Arena in Cape Town. A handful of tickets are still available at Computicket

        Jack Parow ft Dirt Nasty – Fok Fokkity Fok (music video)

        In jack parow deur griffinRek jou bek

        As jy kyk na die meeste musiekvideos wat Jack Parow sover die jaar vanaf sy dubbel-album, Nag van die Lang Pette, vrygestel het, (Tema van jou Lied ft Valiant Swart, Ode to You ft Nonku, Veilig ft Janie Bay),  sal jy sweer die man het skoon sag geraak.

        Maar moenie te gou op hom opgee nie.  Jack Parow is terug, en so kras soos ons hom ken, in sy nuwe animasie musiekvideo vir Fok Fokkity Fok met Dirt Nasty.

        Fok Fokkity Fok is vervaardig deur Keegan Thornhill (http://www.cosmiconionring.blogspot.com).

        fok-fokkity-fokDirt Nasty is ‘n Amerikaanse akteur, komediant, televisie aanbieder, opname kunstenaar, musiekvervaardiger, voormalige VJ en voormalige pornografie akteur is.  Hy is bekend as ‘n MTV VJ wat ‘n rapper en komediant geword het onder sy alter ego, Dirt Nasty.  Hy het ‘n kultus gevolg op sosiale media.  Hy het in die eerste seisoen van ‘What I like about you’ gespeel en ‘Scary Movie’ 3 en 4… en hy is mal oor Jack Parow.

        “Ek het Dirt Nasty ontmoet toe ek in Los Angeles was en het onmiddelik gesien dat hy net so blêrrie mal is soos ek.  So ja, ek het geweet ons sal iets saam moet doen in die toekoms.  Hierdie song is een van my favourites van die album.  Dit het heavy lekker uitgekom,” tune Parow.
