Alter Bridge Live at Wembley

Alter Bridge is an American rock band that was formed in 2004 in Orlando, Florida. It consists of lead guitarist and backing vocalist Mark Tremonti, bassist Brian Marshall, drummer Scott Phillips, and lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist Myles Kennedy, formerly of The Mayfield Four and the frontman of Slash’s current solo project. Tremonti named the group after an actual bridge that once existed on Alter Road near his former home in Grosse Pointe Park, Michigan.

Despite Creed’s multi-platinum success, Alter Bridge arose with only gold status with their first studio album, One Day Remains, which was released on Wind-up Records in August 2004 to generally mixed reviews. After the band’s first tour, they dropped their contract with Wind-up Records in 2006 and signed with Universal Republic Records, releasing their second album, Blackbird, which was positively received by critics, in October 2007.

The band spent the next two years touring and working on other projects before reconvening in 2010 to work on their third album. Titled AB III, the album was released in October 2010 on Roadrunner Records and was a critical success.

In January 2011, the band’s first live album and concert film, Live from Amsterdam, was finally released in stores after two years of delays.

A second concert film, Live at Wembley, was released in March 2012.

Since January 2013 the band has been recording their fourth studio album, expected to be released the same year.

Despite relatively low mainstream success and label support for the majority of the band’s career, Alter Bridge’s music has been critically successful, and the band has become known for its frequent, extensive touring and loyal fanbase.

The individual members of Alter Bridge are also involved with various other projects, including solo and session work, and Kennedy’s collaborations with Slash and former members of Led Zeppelin.

In 2009, Ultimate Guitar Archive named Alter Bridge the 36th greatest band of the decade. Genres Hard rock, alternative metal, heavy metal, post-grunge. Years active 2004–present. Labels Wind-up, Universal Republic, Roadrunner, EMI.

UNRULY HEARTS PLAYLIST

Listen to “Call it Fate, Call it Karma” — the final song on the Strokes new album, “Comedown Machine” (RCA) — and it sounds planets removed from the leather-jacketed band of New York City upstarts that made “Is This It” in 2001. The new track is a moody soul-lounge ballad, with Julian Casablancas crooning in falsetto over a gently undulating guitar.  Comedown Machine is perversely enchanting, even if it has nothing to do with the guitar churn and driving subway-train rhythms that made the Strokes sound like the heirs to the Velvet Underground sound. Its strangeness isn’t necessarily a bad thing: growth, evolution, experimentation – these are virtues that can keep a band relevant as it enters its second decade.  We dig it!

 

 

 

Featured Band: Pearl Jam

Vedder was born Edward Louis Severson III in the Chicago suburb of Evanston, Illinois, son of Karen Lee Vedder and Edward Louis Severson, Jr. His parents divorced in 1965, when Vedder was one year old. His mother soon remarried a man named Peter Mueller, an attorney, and Vedder was raised believing that Mueller was his biological father. His adopted name became Edward Mueller. Vedder’s ancestry includes German and Danish.

While living in Evanston, Vedder’s family fostered seven younger children in a group home. In the mid-1970s, the family, including Vedder’s three younger half-brothers, moved to San Diego County, California. It was at this point that Vedder, who had received a guitar from his mother on his twelfth birthday, began turning to music (as well as surfing) as a source of comfort. He particularly found solace in The Who’s 1973 album, Quadrophenia. He said, “When I was around 15 or 16… I felt all alone… I was all alone—except for music.” His mother and Mueller divorced when Vedder was in his late teens. His mother and brothers moved back to the Chicago area, but Vedder remained with his stepfather in California so he would not have to change high schools.

After the divorce Vedder met Uncle Scott and learned the truth about his parentage, that Mueller was really his stepfather. Vedder had met his biological father briefly as a child, but had believed that Severson was merely an old friend of his parents. By the time Vedder learned the truth, Severson had died of multiple sclerosis. By his senior year at San Dieguito High School, Vedder was on his own, living in an apartment and supporting himself with a nightly job at a drug store in Encinitas. He eventually dropped out of high school in his senior year due to the pressures of balancing school with working. He joined the rest of his family in Chicago, and it was at this time that he changed his name to Eddie Vedder, Vedder being his mother’s maiden name.

In the early 1980s, Vedder worked as a waiter, earned his high school GED, and briefly attended a community college near Chicago. In 1984, Vedder returned to San Diego, California, with his girlfriend, Beth Liebling. He kept busy recording demo tapes at his home and working various jobs, including a position as a contracted security guard at the La Valencia Hotel in La Jolla. Vedder had several stints in San Diego area bands, including Surf and Destroy and The Butts. One of those bands, called Indian Style, included future Rage Against the Machine and Audioslave drummer Brad Wilk. In 1988, Vedder became the vocalist for the San Diego progressive funk rock band Bad Radio. The music of the original incarnation of the band was influenced by Duran Duran; however, after Vedder joined Bad Radio, the band moved on to a more alternative rock sound influenced by the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

This is where proper music is made, nothing like the charts with its shitty music mostly about money and sex. These bands and so many more write lyrics from their hearts and this has got to be an all time great. You are who you are and let no one get in the way of who you are!
