Gary Cherone Taking His Hurtsmile On The Road

(Gibson) Extreme vocalist Gary Cherone says his new band, Hurtsmile, is in "the honeymoon period" of rehearsing before heading out on tour following the release of their eponymously titled debut.

Speaking to Mitch Lafon of Bravewords.com, Cherone said the band built off the musical tension between himself and his brother, guitarist Mark Cherone: "Mark and I have been very close, but musically there's always tension," he said. "The advantage of having your brother [in the band] is that I know him as well as he knows me. He knows my moods and I know his. I'll stay away from him when he's in a bad mood."

Cherone has gone to great pains to assure fans that, unlike their mid-'90s breakup, this time Extreme isn't going anywhere. "Extreme is alive and well," he told Lafon. "Nuno [Bettencourt] and I are separate, but writing. We plan on recording this year and if the right tour comes up (like Whitesnake for example), Extreme will be on the road too." more on this story
