(Radio.com) In 1964, Cilla Black released "It's For You," a song Paul McCartney and John Lennon wrote for her, which she took to No. 7 on the charts. Black passed away last year and while her family was going through her belongings they found the original demo which reportedly features the only-known version of McCartney on vocals.
The demo was found stuffed in a brown paper envelope, which had Black's name and the song title handwritten on it, reported NME. Black's family decided to showcase the demo to The Beatles Shop in Liverpool, England as part of a collection of her 21 demos. Immediately, the store manager knew it was something special.
"As soon as I heard 'It's For You', I thought: 'Oh God, that's not Cilla Black, it's Paul McCartney,'" Stephen Bailey told the Liverpool Echo. "I was shaking with excitement and speechless. Apart from a few crackles that you get with acetates, the quality is fine. It's a wonderful recording." Read more

(Metal Hammer) Slayer frontman Tom Araya has been captured on video reacting angrily to an audience member who spat on him. His band was preparing to perform at the Comic-Con in San Diego last week when the incident occurred.
In the clip, Araya - who's spent the previous moments laughing and joking with the crowd - is seen thanking them for their attendance. Just before he begins to play his expression changes and he singles out someone in the room, asking: "What was that about?" He repeats: "What was that about? Tell me!" then adds: "Someone just spit on me. What was that about?"
He continues to remonstrate with the person while the crowd begin to boo on the frontman's behalf, then start chanting: "Kick him out!" Araya keeps asking for an explanation until a roadie calls on house staff to remove the fan. While that's happening, Araya tells the rest of the audience: "I don't understand that." The show then begins as planned. Check out the video

(Metal Hammer) Jason Newsted says one of the reasons he's pursuing his acoustic project is because he achieved everything he could in heavy music while he was with Metallica.
He's happy for bands like Slipknot to take up the mantle - and admits he can't play "heavier and faster" the way he used to. He last week unveiled Would And Steal, a duo featuring Rob Tucker, which focuses on classic Americana.
Newsted says in a video: "After 30 years of playing heavy music, I've been around the globe about five times. I've already climbed that mountain. We got Grammy awards, the Hall Of Fame and all those different things. That's as far as you can go in that kind of music. It's someone else's turn to have fun in that music now."
He adds: "I can't play like Slipknot now. Those guys are heavier and faster than I could ever dream of playing now. This is how I can play, and this is what I'll do for the rest of time." Read more

(hennemusic) Late Megadeth drummer Nick Menza's memoir, "Megalife: Nick Menza The Book", will be published on November 4th. Written with J. Marshall Craig, the project reportedly includes events immediately before and after Menza's death on May 21, 2016 when he suffered a heart attack during the third song of OHM's show at The Baked Potato in Studio City, CA.
Menza played on four Megadeth studio albums, including their 1990 classic "Rust In Peace" and 1992's "Countdown To Extinction." He exited the lineup in 1998, when knee problems and a benign tumor forced him to leave a tour in support of 1997's "Cryptic Writings."
A GoFundMe page has been set up to assist Menza's children's future education and living expenses; to date, the site has raised more than $6,000 towards a goal of $65,000. Read more

(hennemusic) Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry rejoined supergroup The Hollywood Vampires on July 22 for a show at Weill Hall in Rohnert Park, CA, just twelve days after collapsing during a concert in Coney Island, NY and video from the show has been posted online.
The band delivered their standard 21-song set of classic rock covers upon Perry's return after the rocker missed five concerts plus a charity performance after reportedly dealing with a serious bout of "dehydration and exhaustion."
During the second song of The Hollywood Vampires show at the Ford Amphitheater in Coney Island on July 10, Perry stumbled offstage and, according to sources, soon lost consciousness and apparently went into cardiac arrest, with police on the scene reviving him.
Following the incident, the Aerosmith guitarist was taken to Coney Island hospital, where he was listed in stable condition. Check out the videos from the show

(Classic Rock) Jimmy Page has thanked fans for their "positive energy" during the copyright trial over Led Zeppelin classic Stairway To Heaven. The guitarist, singer Robert Plant and bassist John Paul Jones all appeared in a California court last month to answer the allegation that the song's opening riff had been lifted from Spirit track Taurus.
The claim was dismissed after a jury backed Led Zeppelin's position, led by the argument that the chord sequence in question was too common a musical device to be protected by copyright law.
Page says: "A few weeks have passed since the judgement, with the jury reaching a unanimous decision in a remarkably short time. Throughout the lengthy journey to that verdict, and even more recently, I have received and been aware of the overwhelming wave of support, encouragement and congratulations that has been deeply moving."
He adds: "I'd like to take this opportunity to personally thank all those who contributed such a positive energy to me." Read more

(hennemusic) Eric Clapton has raised $45,000 for the family of former Asleep At the Wheel guitarist Johnny Nicholas by auctioning off one of two guitars he played during his 70th birthday shows at the Royal Albert Hall in London last year.
On July 23, Heritage Auctions in Dallas, TX confirmed the Fender Stratocaster sold for more than twice its pre-auction estimate. Clapton offered the guitar to the Nicholas family to help raise money for medical bills and continued Leukemia research when Johnny's wife, Brenda, was diagnosed with the disease; sadly, she lost her battle last month.
A noted blues player, Johnny was a member of the Grammy-winning Asleep At The Wheel before he and Brenda settled in Texas Hill Country to raise their family. During his time with the band, Johnny became close friends with Clapton and their friendship has endured to the present day.
Todd Krause built the tobacco sunburst Masterbuilt Stratocaster for Clapton at the Fender Custom Shop in 2014. Read more

(Metal Hammer) Five Finger Death Punch have released a video for their track "I Apologize." The song originally appeared on the deluxe edition of their 2015 album Got Your Six.
The band say: "The video is a dark, somber metaphor that speaks for itself. I don't think we need a parallel narrative to explain it or emphasise its impact as almost everyone knows someone struggling with some form of addiction. It's real for everybody.
"We have even been losing exceptionally bright, talented people who you'd assume know better. No matter how much support you provide, ultimately it's everyone's own decision to face their demons or perish." Watch the video

(Classic Rock) Ronnie James Dio's solo career came about after a series of unplanned events, Dio drummer Vinny Appice has recalled. He believes the iconic vocalist, who died in 2010, had no clear direction for the band when he formed it in 1982 - and he'd expected to remain with Black Sabbath instead.
But arguments over the Live Evil album led to Dio and Appice quitting Tony Iommi's band - and a change of direction for the singer's solo project. Appice tells the Silk And Steel Power Hour: "Ronnie had a solo deal while he was in Black Sabbath. His first plan was to stay with Black Sabbath and do a solo record with all his friends on it.
"He wanted me to play on it, Cozy Powell, all his friends in different bands. It would be like an all-star album. Then things soured up with Sabbath. Things got a little bit funky, and he decided, that's it, he's leaving. Then it became, he's going to use that record deal to launch a new career. That's when he asked me if I wanted to join, and I said yes." Read more

Anselmo previously said: "The Scour thing was just something that popped up - it's something I think I can kill, I can lay it out. It's predominantly modern-ish thrashy black metal stuff. I'm going to put my own spin on it.
"I don't have to sound like your boy from Gorgoroth to get the point across - there's other ways of singing over that style of music, and I shall employ many styles." Confirmed acts can be viewed

(Radio.com) Many are still reeling from the death of David Bowie back on January 10th. While the iconic artist battled cancer for 18 months, he kept the news secret from his rabid fanbase, who over sixth months later are still coming to terms to life without the "Thin White Duke."
Bowie's 1972 concept album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars was a landmark and trailblazing effort in many ways. The effort spawned hits like "Sufferagette City," "Starman" and, of course, "Ziggy Stardust."
While it was posted two years ago, the isolated vocal track from "Ziggy Stardust" is just beginning to make the rounds. Fans can hear Bowie's distinct voice without accompaniment thanks to user "brainpicker" on Soundcloud. Take a listen to the chilling and amazing vocal track

(hennemusic) Twisted Sister have released a new video clip where they pay tribute to their late drummer A. J. Pero on the performance of their 1985 single, "The Price", as featured on the newly-released live package "Metal Meltdown."
"Tonight is a tribute to A.J. Pero," frontman Dee Snider tells the crowd at The Hard Rock Casino in Las Vegas during the May 30, 2015 concert, "and we would be remiss if we didn't dedicate this song to his memory. Because the rock and roll business - as wonderful and glorious as it is - has got a lot of surprises, like grunge, but we continue on. So this one's for you A.J
.I know you're listening."
Pero passed away two months before the Las Vegas show from a heart attack while playing on tour with Adrenaline Mob. The band brought in acclaimed drummer Mike Portnoy for the tribute concert, which captures his debut performance with the group.
"The Price" was the third single from 1984's "Stay Hungry", which went on to earn triple platinum status for sales of more than 3 million copies in the US. Check out the video

(hennemusic) Sacramento, CA rockers Tesla have released a new single, "Save That Goodness", from their upcoming release "Mechanical Resonance Live!," and are streaming the track online.
Written and produced by Phil Collen of Def Leppard - who they are touring with this summer across North America - the tune is the lone studio track on the project, due August 26.
"I first met the Tesla boys when we jammed with the band onstage at the infamous Paradiso Theater in Amsterdam 30 years ago," Collen tells Ultimate Classic Rock. "From then on we've been connected in one way or another."
According to Collen, Tesla bassist Brian Wheat heard "Save That Goodness" and told the veteran guitarist, "We should record this song and you should produce it."
"We listened to it and immediately loved it," says singer Jeff Keith. "He completely wrote it, but when we went in to record it, he let us put our own Tesla stamp on it, which was very nice. It's not a cover song, but you know, similarly, we've played lots of cover songs that work well for us, that we just kind of put our little Tesla stamp on it."
"From that moment, we've been writing, recording and getting totally inspired about making new Tesla music," adds Collen, calling the single "an explosive precursor to the dynamic new Tesla studio album due out in 2017" that the Def Leppard guitarist will produce. Check out the song

(Classic Rock) Blues Pills have released a lyric video for their track "Little Boy Preacher." It's taken from the band's second album Lady In Gold, which is scheduled for release on August 5 via Nuclear Blast.
Singer Elin Larsson previously said: "Lady Gold is a character who symbolises death. We wanted a twist on the typical stereotype of death being the grim reaper. So instead we made her a lady in gold."
Blues Pills are currently on tour across Europe and last month released a trailer for the follow-up to their 2014 self-titled debut album. Check out the new song

(TeamRock Radio) A live video of Twin Atlantic playing "No Sleep" at the Isle Of Wight Festival has been released. The track is lifted from the band's upcoming fourth album GLA, due out on September 9. It's designed as a tribute to their home city, Glasgow.
Frontman Sam McTrusty said of the follow-up to 2014's Great Divide: "Glasgow is where we come from. It's laced in our blood, not to mention our art and vision. It's bold. It's in our voice. It's time to embrace it and not work around it."
He adds: "We've changed our approach to writing and recording. We turned the idea of a rock band upside down, conforming only to this one idea - to take back rock and roll, to give people something real again.
"You can't get more real than Glasgow. We've finally made the album we wanted to make." Watch the video

(hennemusic) A lawyer representing plaintiff Michael Skidmore has filed an appeal to the verdict in the recent "Stairway To Heaven" copyright infringement lawsuit involving Led Zeppelin members Jimmy Page and Robert Plant.
Last month, a Los Angeles federal court jury cleared the duo of any wrongdoing in the creation of their 1971 signature song against a claim by Skidmore on behalf of the estate and Trust of Spirit guitarist Randy California (Wolfe) that the acoustic introduction to "Stairway" was lifted from the group's 1968 instrumental, "Taurus."

(Metal Hammer) Corey Taylor has been caught on video having an audience member kicked out of a Slipknot show. The frontman lost his temper after someone showed "disrespect" while the band performed in Toronto last week.
The clip was posted soon after Taylor slapped a phone out of a fan's hand at another show - and around the time Slayer frontman Tom Araya dealt with someone who spat on him as a concert began.
Taylor is seen in the latest video pointing at someone in the crowd and saying: "You don't show me sh*t, you little p----." He gestures that the person should leave, then continues performing while pointing, until security staff follow his finger and remove the person from the show. He then says: "Bye-bye. Yip, bye-bye, bitch."
Taylor later tweeted that he'd had a male fan ejected, although a female had left with him, and added: "I've been doing this too long to deal with that disrespect." Watch the video

Steinberg appeared on the band's 1962 debut full-length album, Green Onions and 1965 follow-up Soul Dressing. He was eventually replaced by Donald 'Duck' Dunn - though he was inducted alongside his former bandmates in the Memphis Music Hall of Fame in 2002. Read more

(TeamRock Radio) A Day To Remember have released an online stream of their song "Bullfight." The track comes from their forthcoming album Bad Vibrations, which is due out on September 2.
Frontman Jeremy McKinnon said: "We completely changed the way we wrote, recorded and mixed this album. It was one of the most unique recording experiences we've ever had.
"We rented a cabin in the mountains and just wrote together in a room, which was the polar opposite of the last three albums we've made. And working with producer Bill Stevenson was an awesome experience.
"He was a bit hard to read at first, so I think we subconsciously pushed ourselves harder to try to impress him. As a result, we gave this album everything we had." Stream the song

(Radio.com) Pierce the Veil challenge themselves to a night in a haunted hotel in the music video for their song "Circles." The song appears on the band's latest album Misadventures.
Good Charlotte recently paid tribute to The Last Man on Earth with their video for "40 oz. Dream," and it looks like Pierce the Veil took a trip down 1990 movie memory lane with "Circles." The band loosely based their video on the 1991 film Nothing But Trouble starring Chevy Chase, John Candy and Aykroyd. In the opening moments, they enter the dilapidated hotel where they've stopped for the night while on tour. The foursome come across its owner, who looks incredibly similar to Aykroyd's character in the film. From there, the misadventures-forgive the pun-begin.
After checking into their room, which looks like the aftermath to a pagan ceremony with animal bones scattered across the floor and handprints strewn across the walls, Pierce the Veil's members find themselves in increasingly bizarre situations. The whole thing takes a turn when the hotel catches fire and they must escape with their lives. Check out the latest from the band

He adds: "I have in recent years become more aware of what would make me feel real happiness and content, and that is to expand my own creativeness in combination with a somewhat stiller life, where I will not tour all year round at the speed of light.
"During the many years of touring with Sabaton, we have become like brothers. Together with the best crew in the world, we've had a true blast and there is a bond between all of us that cannot be broken." Read more

(hennemusic) During Guns N' Roses recent two-night stand in East Rutherford, NJ as part of the reunited group's Not In This Lifetime tour, Slash paid a surprise visit to jam with the pre-teen band as they rehearsed for the Broadway musical School Of Rock.
Rolling Stone reports Slash stepped from the wings sidestage and joined the kids while they were practicing the group's 1988 hit, "Sweet Child o' Mine."
Slash played alongside Brandon Niederauer, who plays guitar prodigy Zack in the show. Niederarauer carefully watched the veteran rock star perform the song as they played the famous riff in unison.
Singer Bobbi MacKenzie, who plays the show's band's soulful lead singer Tomika, powered through her vocals on the song without noticing the surprise guest behind her and looked shocked as she saw him after the song wrapped.
The full band with Slash also gave a raucous take on "Paradise City" on the stage before he posed with the kids for photos and met with the musicians.
"It was really cool to meet such an enthusiastic and talented bunch of young rock 'n' rollers," says Slash. "They were great kids as well as players." Check out the video

The supergroup features The Dillinger Escape Plan's Ben Weinman and Mastodon's Brent Hinds, Alice In Chains frontman William DuVall on vocal duties, former Mars Volta drummer Thomas Pridgen and Dethklok bassist Pete Griffin.
DuVall said of their upcoming debut album Broken Lines: "Writing lyrics for these songs was somewhat like writing for film - the mood shifts rapidly and drastically within a song.
"Sometimes the whole scene changes. There were a lot of times where, if you were trying to impose conventional rock songwriting standards on this, you'd be in a whole world of trouble." Watch the video

(Radio.com) One of David Bowie's last artistic ventures, his musical, Lazarus, is set to open in the UK this fall reported NME. Bowie talked about writing musicals and plays back in 2000.
"When I was a teenager I had it in my mind that I would be a creator of musicals for the West End and Broadway, and people would do my songs," he told K broadcaster, journalist and author Jeremy Paxman.
The live show, which opened in New York late last year, is based on Bowie's 1976 film The Man Who Fell To Earth, in which Bowie played the genius extra-terrestrial Thomas Newton.
The New York production, co-written with Irish playwright Enda Walsh and directed by Belgian director Ivo van Hove, starred Dexter and Six Feet Under actor Michael C. Hall. Read more

(hennemusic) Van Halen frontman David Lee Roth tackles food and hot rods on the two latest episodes of his online series The Roth Show. The rocker launched the program in 2012 and it remained online until his social media websites went dark at the end of January 2015 without explanation - just days before Van Halen officially announced plans for the release of "Tokyo Dome Live In Concert."
The series resurfaced when the singer launched a new website on February 7. "Up by popular demand," said Roth at the time. "Unlimited binge positive fun for the whole family & beyond

(Prog) Gong will release their latest album Rejoice! I'm Dead! on September 16. The psych-rock outfit are putting out their 28th title - and their first without founder Daevid Allen, who died of cancer last year aged 77.
The record also includes an early song idea rehearsal featuring the late singer, along with Gong alumni Steve Hillage, Didier Malherbe and Graham Clark. A clip featuring guitarist Hillage can be heard below.
Singer Kavus Torabi says: "Rejoice! I'm Dead! came together over several weeks in an East London rehearsal studio. In terms of the writing, the songs became very elastic, what may have been brought to the band as a fixed idea, through experimenting, discarding, expanding and mutating evolved into the songs as you hear them now. Every member was key in the development of each song." Read more

(Classic Rock) The Mission's Wayne Hussey has given an update from the studio, where he and the band are working on their new album. They're putting the pieces in place for the follow-up to 2013's The Brightest Light with producer Tim Palmer. He was behind the desk for the band's 1986 debut album God's Own Medicine and 1990's Carved In Sand.
And Hussey says the new material, which is expected later this year, carries the "swagger and bombast of the Mission of old."
He says: "I'm sat in my hotel room in Austin having just completed my first day of work here with Tim Palmer. I haven't seen Tim for maybe a good 10 years or so but it's like no time at all has passed and we are so immediately comfortable working with each other again.
"I think this album is shaping up to be monstrous - an album that you will love. It has all the swagger and bombast of the Mission of old. Great tunes and some great guest performances. I've managed to persuade a few of my old mates to lend their vocal talents to this album. Guess who?" Read more

(Classic Rock) Former Tremeloes members Rick Westwood and Len Hawkes have been acquitted of indecently assaulting a 15-year-old girl in 1968. The pair were charged in November with one count each of indecent assault relating to an incident in Chester in 1968.
Both men pleaded not guilty and were due to stand trial next year over the allegations. But the BBC report a judge at Reading Crown Court ordered that both men be found not guilty as there was no evidence to offer.
Hawkes said he and Westwood felt like a "black cloud" had been lifted after the verdict, adding: "The past two years and seven months have been the worst time of our lives. Our families have had to endure the stress and media publicity and it's taken its toll on all of us." Read more

"Show Me a Leader is a reflection of how polarized and fractured things are in our society," says singer Myles Kennedy. "This song doesn't push an agenda, it simply expresses a very common sense of disillusionment people seem to be feeling at this point in time."
The 14-song set was recorded earlier this year with producer Michael 'Elvis' Baskette. Alter Bridge are currently on the road with Disturbed and Breaking Benjamin for a summer tour of North America ahead of the album's fall release, which will be followed by a 24-show run across Europe starting November 4 in Bilbao, Spain.

(TeamRock Radio) Linkin' Park's Mike Shinoda has hit back after claiming his bandmate Chester Bennington's "we kept metal alive" comment was misconstrued by the media.
The vocalist and guitarist leapt to the singer's defence, explaining that the band "made the case" for successful metal in an industry commercially saturated by pop music after they launched their 2000 debut album, Hybrid Theory.
Shinoda says: "Bunch of rock outlets taking Chester's 'kept metal alive' quote out of context today. So dumb. It's click-bait, don't fall for it. He basically said that pop music was ruling the world, and we made a case for commercially viable heavy music - no big deal.
"Maybe not the best choice of words, but the sentiment wasn't as outrageous as today's rock news would have you think." Read more

Frontman Bruce Soord says: "In Exile is the first track on our new album and I think it sets the tone perfectly. To me, it's immediately apparent to the listener how important Gavin's drumming is, as well as Darran's fantastic guitar work - not to take away anything from the three of us in the band of course! As for the meaning, it's a song about estrangement." Watch the video

(hennemusic) Extreme will release "Pornograffitti Live 25: Metal Meltdown", on September 23. The package captures the Boston band performing the 1991 album in its entirety at The Joint at the Hard Rock Casino in Las Vegas last year on the occasion of its 25th anniversary.
The group's second album, "Extreme II: Pornograffitti (A Funked Up Fairy Tale)", featured two hit singles, "More Than Words" and "Hole Hearted" - both acoustic-based numbers - while most of the album was a mix of hard rock and funk.
The project peaked at No. 10 on the US Billboard 200 on its way to US sales of more than 2 million copies. Directed by Brian Lockwood, the "Pornograffitti Live 25: Metal Meltdown" package includes a Blu-ray, DVD and audio CD of the complete concert that was filmed on May 30, 2015 as part of an event headlined by Twisted Sister - who just issued the first DVD set in the Metal Meltdown series.
"It was a great thrill to perform Pornograffitti in its entirety," says singer Gary Cherone. "Some of these songs were never played live before so we had to go back and relearn them for the tour. The album was a watershed moment in the bands career
it's when we came in to our own and it will always be special."
"The band always prided itself on its live performance," adds guitarist Nuno Bettencourt. "Over the years, some of these songs have evolved where the band actually plays them better now than when we had recorded them. Hope you enjoy it." Read more and watch the trailer

Archive mainman Darius Keeler had the following to say about the forthcoming release: "I think just knowing that we were working on our 10th album made this one feel like a landmark record.
"Our history as a collective has been a mad journey, we've trodden such a strange path to arrive at where we are today, and I think in a way that informed the new record and emboldened us to make what is probably the Archive album that I'm most proud of to date."
The group previewed the upcoming record with the release of their video for track Driving In Nails last month. It can be viewed

Puciato told TeamRock last year that The Black Queen was a "needs-based" project, adding: "I still feel the need to express myself creatively, but as you get older your emotional dynamic range increases.
"You're not just full of piss and wanting to flip the world off. You have other needs you've not explored." Watch the video

The video is produced by filmmaker Erika Errante. Frontman Giancarlo Erra says of the video: "All we knew is that we didn't want to go too literal with the lyrics in the song, but instead expressing the concept in another way.
So the concept is explained through the idea of lost and found people and feeling, and transformation from one into the other. It is a more loose and artistic connection, and I liked it a lot for that reason." Watch the video

"There are some songs that have a bit of the Iron Maiden/Dio feel to them, as well as some songs that have a little bit of a Van Halen influence. It's a very guitar-oriented, hard rock, metal album with lots of melodies and hooks." Watch the video

(Radio.com) Sublime's self-titled album turns 20 this month. The third--and final--album of their career, it took the band from the Warped tour to multi-platinum sales. Sadly, by the time the album was released, frontman Bradley Nowell had died from a drug overdose.
Many fans were unaware of his passing; to them, Sublime was a brand new band just starting to dominate alternative rock radio, as the format moved on from the grunge sound. Sublime sold over 6.6 million copies in the U.S., and yielded a number of radio and MTV hits, including "Santeria," "Doin' Time," "Wrong Way" and, of course, "What I Got."
But few know the real story behind the Long Beach, CA band's groundbreaking album. Over the course of several interviews with band members and producers, we discovered--among other things--that "Doin' Time" almost never came to be, that producer David Kahne almost quit after just one day with the band, and that the album almost never saw the light of day.
Jon Phillips, Band Manager: I signed them to Gasoline Alley. There was finally a recording budget, which they'd never had before. I just wanted to hear Bradley and Sublime record in different environments with producers that they hadn't worked with before.
[Two producers were selected; David Kahne, who had produced Fishbone's early albums, and Paul Leary of the Butthole Surfers, who had produced the Meat Puppets' 1994 breakthrough Too High to Die, which gave the band their first radio hit with "Backwater." Phillips convinced Kahne to fly from New York to LA to produce the tracks at Total Access Studios in Redondo Beach. The studio was used by Pennywise, No Doubt and was close to home for the band. Then, Sublime would fly to Texas to record with Leary.]
Phillips: Bradley, Miguel and David went in the first day. I don't even think the full band was there at that point. Sublime had demos that they had completed. They had the original version of 'What I Got" so that was one of the songs that they were going to work on. I remember the morning after the first day in the studio I was lying in bed about 7:30 and my phone rang, it was David Kahne calling me from his hotel room down the street from Total Access and told me "Hey, Jon, I don't want to waste your money. I think that I should go home. These guys just aren't ready. I don't know what's going on. They're just not prepared to make the type of record I want to make." I told David, "Look, they're not used to working in the professional environment that you're used to working in. Sublime came from the punk rock world." I felt that he needs to give it a chance because I knew they'd be like the kid that crammed the night before the final exam and still came out with an A minus. I convinced David to go back there and after day two he told me they'd had a heart to heart. I think they'd addressed some of Brad's "usage" because I think that might have been having an effect.
]During the sessions with Kahne, they recorded 'What I Got," 'April 29th, 1992," 'Doin' Time" and 'Caress Me Down."]
Kahne: It was very strange. I'm in the garage in Redondo Beach and I went back to the hotel and said "What the f- am I doing?" I've done a lot of crazy records, but I think realizing the depth of Brad's talent was a major thing for me. But it was frustrating. So, I remember what Miguel said to me. He said, "Just do whatever you want." So I put the track together more like a hip-hop record than a band record.
For me it was just as simple as, here's a killer f-ing beat with an acoustic guitar playing over it and him going out there, and finally after two days he just went out and sang through it about three times and that was it. He just laid it down and I was just sittin' there going "F-, this is good."
So, the label wouldn't give them per diem money for fear of what they might spend it on. But they had an account at a sub shop and Brad would always get these Philly cheesesteaks with piles of pepperoncinis chopped up inside of it. So part of the ritual was every day at lunch there'd be these subs and they'd be eaten' and there were these two dogs--one was Lou Dog [Nowell's dalmatian], frequently seen in the band's artwork and videos] and the other was someone's Mastiff. And they would sit there and watch them eat and drool. And the drool would run out of the mouths of the dogs and there was this contest to see which dog's drool would go the farthest down to the floor without breaking. Read more
