Pat McManus: Schijndl 2012

Masterful guitar playing in this fine song, when Pat McManus and band returned to Café D'n Bes in Schijndel, The Netherlands, on Saturday, November 10th, 2012. The band performed to a familiar, appreciative local audience, plus some folk who travelled to catch the event. Check out Pat's new DVD, 'Live in Ireland', available now! 'Rough Diamond' is from the 2009 album, '2PM'.

Pat McManus - Lead vocals, guitar and violin
Marty McDermott - Bass and backing vocals
Paul Faloon - Drums


Extract from the Pat McManus website:
Patrick Frances McManus was one of 6 children born into an incredibly talented musical family in Derrylin, Co.Fermangh, N.Ireland. Pat's father, John, and his mother Valerie were highly accomplished Traditional Irish music players, so it wasn't long before Pat and his two brothers, John and Tommy, were picking up all the instruments lying around the house and learning to play. By the age of 7, Pat had already performed on live T.V. and by 14 he was All-Ireland Fiddle Champion. Aged 20, Pat somehow stumbled across a band called Horslips. As Horslips were a Celtic rock band, the 3 brothers could relate to their music and quickly became big fans and later attended so many gigs that they formed a friendship with the guys in the band. The brothers soon swapped their Fiddles, Uilleann Pipes and Bodhrans for electric instruments and formed their first band called - Pulse, with Pat on Guitar, John on Bass & Vocals and Tommy (who was only 12 at the time) on drums. During an interview with Radio Luxembourg , Dj -- Tony Prince, who remarked how young they all were, jokingly called them Mamas Boys - the boys changed their name. It was just meant to be an 'of the cuff' remark but the name stuck and soon the 3 brothers were officially known as Mamas Boys.

In 2009 the band toured extensively throughout Europe, returning to well established venues and many new ones. This included several festivals such as 'The Harley Davidson Festival' in ST.Tropez, 'Rock The Wolves' in Switzerland, 'The Guitar Festival' in Corsica, 'ST.Julian Guitar Festival' in Geneva and 'Raismes Fest' in France. At the 'Raismes Fest' a live DVD was filmed, which was released in March 2010. The band also collaborated with guests Andy Powell of Wishbone Ash' and Bernie Marsden formerly of 'Whitesnake' and 'Alaska'. Although continually touring the band recorded a second studio CD, which was launched in Paris and Dublin in September 2009. Titled '2pm' the CD showcases 14 new tracks written by Pat and all the reviews have been positive and complimentary.

Alex Lifeson, Geddy Lee, Neil Peart: Signals 30 year Anniverary and 2112 Deluxe Edition

Signals 30 year Anniverary

In the current Volkswagen television commercial in North America, the driver sitting stopped at an intersection does some spirited “air drumming” while the Rush song“Fly By Night” plays over the car sound system…complete with a simulated Neil Peart toss & catch of the invisible drumstick into the air! It’s so funny because I’ve watched guys doing that for thirty years now. By 1981, Rush had built a fiercely loyal fan base through eight albums, only one of which did not sell more than its predecessor, and road-dog touring, all the while honing their chops, their arrangements, and lyrical themes into a laser-tight focus. These efforts finally resulted in Rush’s worldwide blockbuster Moving Pictures. So what did the band do for the follow-up when all of their hard work paid off ?

Rush changed. Because the album also contained the the Top Ten hit “New World Man” and sold over a million copies in its first two months, there is tendency to assume that Signals was easily embraced by all of the Rush faithful.

It wasn’t. With back-to-back million sellers Permanent Waves in 1980 and then the massive Moving Pictures, Rush risked their new-found fame and fortune with the 1982 album Signals, expanding their sound with new instrumentation and additional layers of sound on songs “Subdivisions”,”The Analog Kid”,”Chemistry”, and“The Weapon”. But if Rush had not challenged themselves and their fans by continuing to innovate and explore all four corners of the studio with their evolving sound with Signals in Fall 1982 , would there even be a Rush in the 21st century? Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson, and Neil Peart all weigh in for this classic rock interview.- Redbeard

“Every album is a point in Rush’s history,” Geddy Lee said in 1978. “And if it’s not getting better, something’s wrong. Every album has to be the perfect Rush album.”
“The first record,” Alex Lifeson says about 2112, “where we sounded like Rush.”
“2112 is, more than anything, a record about being Rush: loving music, moving it forward and taking it to the world, whatever the price. And it is perfect.” – David Fricke
Originally released in 1976, Rush’s epic, landmark release 2112 was their creative and commercial breakthrough as well as one of the band’s most highly regarded releases among both fans and critics alike. With lyrics written by Neil Peart, and influenced by author Ayn Rand, 2112 kicks off with the ambitious seven-suite title track (side one), set in a futuristic world run by the “Priests of the Temples of Syrinx” who regulate “every single facet of every life,” which includes books, music, work and play. “2112” conveys the story of humanity’s instinctual, inner need for one’s free will.
After the mythological journey through “2112,” side two brings you back to the present and continues with five stand-alone tracks. From hard-rocking tracks such as “A Passage to Bangkok,” “Lessons,” and a trip to into the fourth dimension with “The Twilight Zone,” to the album’s soaring conclusion, “Something For Nothing,” 2112 is the album that ushered in the next stage in their continuing evolution as artists.

Jason Becker: Kino Lorber buy right to Jason Becker movie

New York, NY – November 12, 2012 – Kino Lorber, Inc. (www.kinolorber.com) is proud to announce the acquisition of all North American rights to Jason Becker: Not Dead Yet, a moving documentary about maverick guitarist Jason Becker, a legend in the US music scene who has lived with Lou Gehrig’s Disease, or Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), for the last two decades. http://www.deadline.com/2012/11/jason-becker-not-dead-yet-documentary-kino-lorber-acquisition/

Kino Lorber’s Vice President, Elizabeth Sheldon, who negotiated the deal with Ana Vicente from the U.K-based Dogwoof commented: “The adjectives ‘tragic’, ‘powerful’ and ‘heart-breaking’ don’t do justice to Jesse Vile’s near-perfect film. Vile’s portrait invokes far more than pity, with its inspirational story of the tragedy endured by both Becker and his family. The film is a true testament to the power of the human spirit and artistic talent.”

AG get lost in Dublin... thats kinda it. But along the way, he plays guitar, learns that singing will not make you ward, and allows a random gypsy "David" , to send a message to his friends in Toronto. I think we all learned a little about ourselves on this journey ... but probably not.
