Nuno Bettencourt Midnight Express

Nuno Duarte Gil Mendes Bettencourt (born September 20, 1966) is a Portuguese-American guitarist, singer-songwriter, and record producer. He is best known as the lead guitarist of the Boston rock band Extreme. He has also recorded a solo album as well as having founded bands including Mourning Widows, Population 1, DramaGods, The Satellite Party (headed by Jane’s Addiction’s then-former frontman and Lollapalooza co-founder Perry Farrell). In 2007 he also reunited with Extreme to record new music and tour, with the band planning to release material sometime in 2017.

Early years
Bettencourt was born on September 20, 1966 in Praia da Vitória, Terceira, Azores, Portugal, to Ezequiel Mendes Bettencourt and wife Aureolina da Cunha Gil de Ávila. When he was four years old, his family, including brothers Luís and Roberto, moved to Hudson, Massachusetts. Bettencourt lived on Main Street in Hudson for twenty-one years. Initially, Bettencourt had little interest in music, preferring to spend his time playing hockey and football. His first instrument was the drums and he played them exclusively until his brother, Luís, started teaching him the guitar.

While Bettencourt was slow to adopt the instrument under his brother’s tutelage, his skills quickly developed when he began teaching himself, and he has mentioned in many interviews that he would skip many school days to practice upwards of seven hours a day. In his sophomore and junior years of high school, Bettencourt dropped out of sports so he could focus on playing guitar. He eventually dropped out of high school altogether, for the same reason.

As a guitarist, one of Bettencourt’s earliest influences was Eddie Van Halen. However, as he developed his craft as a guitarist and a songwriter, his influences expanded to embrace The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Prince, Queen (Brian May), Pat Travers, Paco de Lucía, Al Di Meola and Kayak.

Underneath the bridge
The tarp has sprung a leak
And the animals I’ve trapped
Have all become my pets
And I’m living off of grass
And the drippings from the ceiling
It’s okay to eat fish
‘Cause they don’t have any feelings[x2:]

Boscoe France: Guitar Center’s 2012 Battle of the Blues Winner

Western Kentucky has a rich history of producing talented musicians who have made huge contributions to our nation’s musical heritage. Well known musicians such as Bill Monroe and Merle Travis are known worldwide for their groundbreaking recordings and performances. This tradition continues today with young, extremely talented musicians such as Boscoe France. In the month of November, 1976, Daniel “Boscoe” France was born to Danny and Karen France in Madisonville, KY – where he still resides today with his two children, Gabriel and Veda Sioux.

His family’s love of music inspired him at the age of three to pick up a guitar, and his uncle Duke Madison taught him how to play that guitar. By the age of fourteen, Boscoe was playing bars in bands and developing his skills as a professional guitarist. Later, always wanting to be involved in music, he also worked as part of the road crew for several national acts. Although influenced by many genres of music, Boscoe’s love of the raw emotion of Blues music has made it his favorite – and he lists Duane Allman,Freddie King, and Elmore James as the guitarists whose playing he most admires.

This Blues influence helped Boscoe become the 2012 winner of Guitar Center’s Battle Of The Blues competition in Los Angeles. Out of over four thousand competitors nationwide, Boscoe came out on top. In addition to the cash and gear prizes, Boscoe became an official endorser of Gibson guitars, Egnater amps, Ernie Ball, Roland, andShure microphones. Recording sessions with Grammy winning producer Pete Anderson were also a result of the competition. Boscoe can be seen performing with his band, The Boscoe France Band – featuring John Gillespie on bass and Jimmy Cummings on drums.

Happy Together

Imagine me and you, I do
I think about you day and night, it’s only right
To think about the girl you love and hold her tight
So happy together

If I should call you up, invest a dime
And you say you belong to me and ease my mind
Imagine how the world could be, so very fine
So happy together

I can’t see me lovin’ nobody but you
For all my life
When you’re with me, baby the skies’ll be blue
For all my life

Me and you and you and me
No matter how they toss the dice, it has to be
The only one for me is you, and you for me
So happy together

I can’t see me lovin’ nobody but you
For all my life
When you’re with me, baby the skies’ll be blue
For all my life

I’ll tell you all of my fears
I’ll tell you all of my shame
If you’ll just lend me an ear
That’s all I want

There is no word I can say
There is no chord I can play
To make me more of a man
And that’s all I want

That’s everything

Take my hand
I’ll lead you and we’ll never be alone
Take my hand
I’ll lead you and we’ll never be alone

The city’s making you ill
It’s like you’re running uphill
Let’s jump off the treadmill
Just close your eyes

I’m gonna build you a house
I’m gonna build you a wall
To keep you safe from it all
Just close your eyes

That’s everything

Take my hand
I’ll lead you and we’ll never be alone

Back at the dawning of time
When God made everything
He had but one thing in mind
To make you mine

You’re everything to me, yeah.

You to me are everything
The sweetest song that I could sing…

Take my hand,
I’ll lead you and we’ll never be alone.

Take my hand, I’ll…
I’ll lead you and we’ll never be alone.

Take my hand, I’ll.
I’ll lead you and we’ll never…
Never be all alone.

If I only could,
Make a deal with God,
And get him to swap our places,
I’d be running up that road,
Be running up that hill,

No problems

If I only could,
Make a deal with God,

And we’ll never be all alone.

No problems no

Take my hand,
I’ll lead you
