Um Ano sem o DEAD! - Mensagem da Loba Alive


13/04/2015 23:50 UM ANO SEM O LOBO

Pensei em muitas coisas para escrever, as palavras se perdem, não acho a melhor forma e não posso ficar voltada para os que ficam incomodados com um lobo que já não faz mais parte da matilha...
Só posso dizer que eu amei demais esse homem com ou sem os defeitos e posso garantir que ele era extraordinário!
Difícil de ser compreendido e sei também que ofendia alguns. Eu mesma fiz as malas umas três vezes para sair da vida dele, o amor venceu e a morte nos separou!
Porém, ele era tão bom no que fazia e tinha o brilho dele próprio que tem gente que perde tempo manifestando sua inveja e criticando seus erros mesmo ele não estando mais por aqui.
Ele era o tipo de homem que respeitava as mulheres, como poucos no mundo hoje; também era gentil maior parte do tempo e tirava dele mesmo para doar...
Infelizmente, os problemas que tinha e sofrimentos na infância e adolescência, fizeram com que se tornasse um homem solitário, com transtorno de humor; 
A música era o grande remédio para a alma e durante grande parte do tempo, companhia, como para tantas outras pessoas...
O blog era tudo e também tornou grande vilão para o coração tão ferido desse lobo por conta das ofensas e trocas de agressões verbais entre alguns...
Por isso, JAVANES tem mantido com dificuldade até! Pois não  conectei o pc  à internet e com isso não recordo a senha...
Também não consigo abrir o blog... minha mente não permite!
E por esse motivo venho agradecer ao Javanes por tudo, pelo carinho e dedicação e também aos seguidores do SOM MUTANTE.
Que Deus abençoe a todos dando mais paciência e tolerância para lidar com o que está do outro lado da tela do computador. Não sabemos o que o outro traz e nem a história de cada um.
Erros? Todos cometemos! Falhar? Falhamos muitas vezes, então quem pode julgar o outro?
Cuidado com palavras, pois elas matam!!!
Vamos edificar!
Façamos da música a mágica para um mundo melhor! 
Obrigada aos amigos: Aponcho, (que ele amava e se preocupava muito); tem um rapaz de Niteroi que não recordo nome,  o lobo velho gostava demais de você cara! também ao nosso amigo Eduardo (pai da saudosa Aninha), pelo carinho na amizade e aos outros que não sei nome.
Sejam felizes.

Paz e bem.

John Arch from Fates Warning



John Arch (born John Maurice Archambault, May 15, 1959 in Colorado Springs) is an American progressive metal singer most notable for his work with the band Fates Warning. Arch co-wrote the majority of the band's songs with guitarist Jim Matheos, and was the band's sole lyricist. After their third album, Awaken the Guardian, was released, Arch was asked to quit his job or leave the band. Financial obligations made it impossible for Arch to quit his job, and he argued that he had shown 100% commitment to the band throughout the years. However, the band informed him that they had to let him go and started to look for another singer. In one interview with John Arch, he said that he would have quit his job if he was asked, but the rest of the band never asked him to.









A Twist of Fate is an EP by singer John Arch, released on June 17, 2003 through Metal Blade Records. At the time, the EP was Arch's first musical work in over seventeen years since leaving progressive metal band Fates Warning in 1987, with whom he recorded their first three albums; the last being Awaken the Guardian (1986). Consisting of only two tracks, A Twist of Fate features Fates Warning founder and guitarist Jim Matheos, with whom Arch would later release a collaborative album in 2011, entitled Sympathetic Resonance, under the banner of Arch/Matheos. Also among the line-up are former Dream Theater drummer Mike Portnoy and current Fates Warning bassist Joey Vera.

Band:
John Arch – vocals, production
Jim Matheos – guitar, keyboard, engineering, production
Mike Portnoy – drums
Joey Vera – bass, engineering
Andy Happel – cello, violin
Phil Magnotti – engineering, mixing, mastering

Cuby + Blizzards


Cuby + Blizzards – also known as Cuby & the Blizzards are a Dutch blues group, founded in 1964 by vocalist Harry Muskee, and guitarist Eelco Gelling.[1] During the 1960s, the band's mixture of sound, drawing upon a variety of genres which included blues and rock and roll, gave them a pioneering sound which was completely different from any other Dutch band in the same time period, using the name Peter & the Blizzards. The spelling of the name varies, with 'Cuby' also written as 'QB' and the ampersand (&) also written as 'and' or '+' and the 'and' sometimes left out. The spelling 'Cuby + Blizzards' was used on the first albums.

Jefferson Starship

Jefferson Starship is an American rock band formed in the early 1970s by several members of the former psychedelic rock group Jefferson Airplane. The band has undergone several major changes in personnel and genres through the years while retaining the same Jefferson Starship name. The current Jefferson Starship, led by co-founder Paul Kantner, more closely resembles its original mix of psychedelic and electric folk music than the pop-driven tunes it was widely known for in the early to mid-1980s. It is not to be confused with Starship, a spin-off of the group featuring former co-lead singer Mickey Thomas that also periodically tours. The latter group is most frequently identified with the 1980s pop tunes of Jefferson Starship.

Booker T. & The MG's


American instrumental rhythm & blues and soul combo, formed 1962 in Memphis, Tennessee. Best remembered as the in-house backing band of the Stax record label. The band’s name is a combination of organist Booker T. Jones’s first names and the acronym for “Memphis Group”, MG. Other members were Al Jackson Jr. (drums), Steve Cropper (guitar), and Lewis Steinberg (bass guitar) who was replaced by Donald “Duck” Dunn in 1963.






Melting Pot is a 1971 studio album recorded by Booker T. & the M.G.'s for Stax Records. It is the last album to feature the group's classic lineup of Jones, Cropper, Dunn, and Jackson, and featured longer jam-oriented songs for the first time on an MG's album. 

The review in Rolling Stone magazine was very positive, concluding in its final paragraph:

"Altogether, as an album, it works really well, with the group's customary taste and precision balanced against a new looseness and a return to earlier, funky playing patterns. That's more than enough to make it the best Booker T. album in some time, the Memphis Gas of the Year, and a Major Rock Event for everyone."

Jack Bruce & Robin Trower


Two legends, one hour of fearsome axe-wielding! 

Essa é uma parceria que sempre teve tudo para dar certo. O escocês Jack Bruce teve importantíssimo papel na criação do blues rock (e depois, do hard rock e do heavy metal) inglês, tendo participado do Blues Incorporated (de Alexis Korner) e do Graham Bond Organisation, bandas nas quais tocou com o baterista Ginger Baker, que viria a ser seu parceiro no Cream algum tempo depois. Tocou também no John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers, onde conheceu o guitarrista Eric Clapton, que completaria a formação do Cream. Antes mesmo de montar o chamado “primeiro dos supergrupos”, teve tempo ainda de participar da banda do tecladista Manfred Mann, ou seja, esteve envolvido com o “crème de la crème” da cena musical inglesa dos anos 60. Com o Cream, que teve carreira tão meteórica quanto avassaladora, simplesmente revolucionou o rock, abrindo espaço para os deliciosos excessos dos anos vindouros. Depois disso, lançou uma penca de discos solo brilhantes (dos 3 membros do Cream, era na minha singela opinião o mais criativo e talentoso), e formou outros trios memoráveis como o West, Bruce & Laing (com os membros do Mountain Leslie West e Corky Laing) e o BBM (que incluía Gary Moore e Ginger Baker). Já o inglês Robin Trower não ficou muito atrás. Tendo integrado no final dos anos 60 o Procol Harum, participou dos álbuns que forjaram o rock progressivo, do qual o Harum é certamente um dos pioneiros (junto a The Moody Blues, The Nice e, um pouco depois, o King Crimson). Com eles, gravou os discos mais clássicos, tendo saído da banda em 1972. A partir daí, lançou uma série de discos sob a égide de Robin Trower Band, dentre os quais se destacou “Bridge of Sighs”, de 1974. Seu timbre na guitarra (obviamente, uma Fender Stratocaster) foi sempre comparado ao de Jimi Hendrix, sendo até mesmo chamado em determinados pontos de sua carreira de “o Hendrix branco”. De fato, sua habilidade em tirar timbres recheados de influências combinando blues e psicodelismo tinham, e têm, muito do estilo de Jimi. Os caminhos de Trower e Bruce se juntaram pela primeira vez no começo dos anos 80, quando se reuniram para gravar o disco “B.L.T.”, que apresentava um power trio completado pelo baterista Bill Lordan. Um disco muito bom, apesar da sonoridade (mais tarde, datada) que viria a vingar nos anos 80 já estar dando suas mostras no trabalho. Na sequência, lançaram “Truce” em 1982, trocando o baterista por Reg Isidore, sendo que nesse segundo disco não conseguiram manter o mesmo pique, e a reação da crítica e do público não foi das mais positivas. Afinal, seu estilo incorporou elementos de funk e soul, com mais “groove”, o que fugia ao som original dos envolvidos. 


De qualquer forma, em 2008 os dois se reencontraram, mais de 25 anos depois, para gravar mais um trabalho. Após os graves problemas de saúde que enfrentou em 2003/2004, quando sofreu um transplante de fígado e quase faleceu, Jack Bruce parece que embarcou num ritmo de extrema produtividade e criatividade. Após uma breve reunião do Cream (e boatos sobre outra reunião, do West, Bruce & Laing), Bruce e Trower finalmente entraram no estúdio e registraram o ótimo “Seven Moons”, junto ao baterista Gary Husband, antigo companheiro de Bruce em outras empreitadas. Sem sombra de dúvidas, o melhor disco gravado pela dupla até agora. Legitimamente um trabalho cooperativo, o talento de ambos transborda de forma totalmente balanceada no decorrer do álbum. É nitidamente um trabalho lançado sem pressões de gravadoras, sem a necessidade de “ter que vender”. Todas as faixas são boas, alternando momentos mais rápidos, “uptempo”, com outros mais arrastados, “midtempo”, e ainda algumas baladas introspectivas e reflexivas compostas em tom menor, com letras certamente influenciadas pelo momento atual de Bruce, que as canta de forma praticamente confessional. Este é o caso de, por exemplo, “Just Another Day” e “I’m Home”. É interessante notar que Jack não utilizou, como de praxe, as letras de Pete Brown, seu parceiro de longa data. O mesmo pode ser dito de Robin, que tem em Keith Reid seu principal letrista. No presente caso, tal trabalho ficou também a cargo da dupla Bruce/Trower. Os solos e bases de Trower no disco são de uma precisão absurda, com notas na medida certa e distorção idem. Poucos guitarristas hoje em dia tocam com tanta classe, unindo originalidade e personalidade com as modernas técnicas de gravação, num estilo ao mesmo tempo limpo e com boas doses de efeitos. Em “Close To Me”, o uso do pedal wah-wah chega a emocionar, um toque de mestre. O som do baixo está um pouco mais no fundo do que de costume, em se tratando de um disco com participação de Jack, mas mesmo assim há ótimas passagens. A bateria de Husband, por sua vez, está excelente como sempre, mesmo sem ter grande destaque específico. Não há músicas de destaque, pois o álbum é muito coeso, todo no mesmo (alto) nível. Para escolher duas, posso citar a empolgante “The Last Door” e o bluesão “Bad Case Of Celebrity”, que são daquelas de arrepiar. O que talvez faça falta no disco, como um todo, sejam algumas partes com solos estendidos, tradicionais dos trabalhos pregressos de ambos, mas o que parece é que provavelmente tenham deixado isso para as apresentações ao vivo, que por sinal já estão sendo marcadas agora em 2009 (vamos torcer para que sejam devidamente registradas em vídeo!). Dessa forma, o enfoque foi nas composições, e nisso eles se saíram muito bem. Enfim, não apenas um disco de rock clássico, mas acima de tudo um disco de rock feito com muita classe.

1. Seven Moons
2. Lives Of Clay

Smith...- Rock


Smith was an American rock band, formed in Los Angeles, California, in 1969. They had a blues-based sound and scored a Top 5 hit in 1969 with a cover of the Burt Bacharach song "Baby It's You", featuring Gayle McCormick on lead vocals. This disc sold over one million copies between July and October 1969, out-charted popular versions by the Beatles and the Shirelles, and received a gold record awarded by the R.I.A.A. The group evolved from "The Smiths" (not to be confused with later English band "The Smiths"), which featured two of the same members, and had attempted a hit single with "Now I Taste The Tears", produced and arranged by Ron Budnik. "Tears" was a brooding, foreboding sounding record that didn't chart well. When the band didn't succeed, McCormick, who had started her career singing songs by Tina Turner, Etta James and others, was added as a front woman and lead vocalist. The group were then discovered by 1960s rocker Del Shannon in a nightclub in Los Angeles. Shannon arranged "Baby It's You" for the group and got them signed to the ABC-Dunhill label. 


Smith released an album titled A Group Called Smith, which spent 11 weeks in the Top 40 album listings of the since-called Billboard 200 record chart. On the album, vocals were split amongst Rich Cliburn, Jerry Carter and McCormick. Smith recorded a second album titled Minus-Plus with lesser success since it only reached #74. Smith's version of "The Weight" was included on the epochal Easy Rider soundtrack because The Band's version, which appeared in the movie, was, because of contractual reasons, unavailable . Most of their material consisted of covers of popular rock and R&B tunes. The band's singles "Take a Look Around" and "What Am I Gonna Do" reached the charts, but the group broke up after two albums. The band's hit "Baby It's You" was featured in Quentin Tarantino's Grindhouse film, Death Proof.

Zoot Sims - Jazz...


John Haley "Zoot" Sims (October 29, 1925 - March 23, 1985) was an American jazz saxophonist, playing mainly tenor and soprano. n the 1950s and '60s, Sims had a long, successful partnership as co-leader of a quintet with Al Cohn, which recorded under the name "Al and Zoot". That group was a favorite at New York City's Half Note Club. Always fond of the higher register of the tenor sax, Zoot also liked to play alto and late in his career added the soprano saxophone to his performances, while recording a series of albums for the Pablo Records label of impresario Norman Granz. Zoot also played on some of Jack Kerouac's recordings. Sims acquired the nickname "Zoot" early in his career while he was in the Kenny Baker band in California. The name was later appropriated for a sax-playing Muppet. Zoot Sims died in New York City of cancer on March 23, 1985,and is buried in Oak Hill Cemetery, Nyack, New York

Snakeye - Canada Rock

Formed under the leadership of Barkhouse ( Langley Beach Crowd) in 1971 with White ( Pepper Tree), Argent (Pepper Tree) and Umphrie (Melody Fair).This line-up recorded Keith Jollimore produced "Blue Feelin'" album which was recorded at Toronto's Thunder Sound but not released until 1975. Barkhouse co-wrote all songs with various members and wrote all the lyrics himself. In 1973 "Choked Up" single was released on United Artists with horn section added to it where the album version had not. Over the next few years several personnel changes occurred . Umphrie was replaced by Gordon Tucker (Double Blind) for a time but later returned. In June of 1974 Brown (Juckatar) and Upshaw (Dogrib) replaced White and Argent. When Umphrie left for a second time in 1975 he was replaced by Russell (Shawnasae, Melody Fair). MacKinnon (Sun Machine) joined in 1976 on keyboards replacing Brown. In July 1976 Upshaw left and joined the Halifax Police Department. He was replaced by John Lake (Sandy Road). Lake had to leave the band because of personal commitments and was replaced by Torreson (Taboo) until his return. When MacKinnon returned to Sun Machine, Amherst guitarist Moore (McCreek) was brought in as his replacement. 


The Barkhouse produced "Shape Up Or Ship Out" was recorded at Solar Audio between March and September of 1979 and released the following year. Lake, Torreson and Moore all played on the album. Two songs "Believe Me Lady" and "See The Sun" that were on the first album were re-recorded for this album. Again, all songs were band originals. The band toured Quebec, Ontario and the Atlantic Provinces several times before they broke up in 1982.  Barkhouse relocated to Toronto for several years before returning to Halifax in the mid 90's and reunited with Lake to form Barkhouse, Lake and Cook. In 1999 he brought back the name Snakeye when Cook was replaced by former Minglewood Band bassist Donnie Hann. Upshaw was one of the founding members of the police rock and roll band "Blue Thunder" which has recorded an album and made several videos urging young people not to use drugs, to stay in school and not to drink and drive. 

Written from conversations with: Jim Rice, Richard Bonner and Cedric Upshaw.

Fable - Hard Rock from Canada...


Once upon a time, 3 Canadian musicians figured that they had invented their own brand of ROCK. These courageous artists decided to follow their instincts and spread their musical tale to all those who would listen. And thus, the rock band FABLE was formed by individuals coming from such separate regions of Canada as Victoria and Toronto. FABLE immediately found itself attracted to the "play it loud soundtrack" that accompanies peoples' lives who tend to live and die by this score. Screeching wah-wah guitars, thumping drums and throbbing bass notes became the driving force behind this Canadian power trio. Also, yielding to their audiences' requests for a recording, FABLE went into the studio and created a musical response for their adoring fans. Thus, the album Get the "L" outta here was born on LP and CD. The title of the album reflects the indirect encouragement that FABLE received from club owners, booking agents and even family members. FABLE's Get the "L" outta here represents a brilliant effort by the band and the album is dedicated to all those music lovers who appreciate and enjoy that 70's Canadian primeval Rock sound. Previous to Fable, however, there existed a group called HELL HOUND. Following the latest stage of FABLE's musical history, TASK FORCE came into being. Throughout these three bands, two musicians remained the core force: Glen Politano and Gary Anderson.
