Toto – Hold the Line

Toto is an American rock band formed in 1977 in Van Nuys in Los Angeles, California. The band’s current lineup consists of Joseph Williams (lead vocals), David Paich (keyboards, vocals), Steve Porcaro (keyboards), Steve Lukather (guitars, vocals), Leland Sklar (bass) and Shannon Forrest (drums). Toto is known for a musical style that combines elements of pop, rock, soul, funk, progressive rock, hard rock, R&B, blues, and jazz.

David Paich and Jeff Porcaro had played together as session musicians on several albums and decided to form a band. David Hungate, Steve Lukather, Steve Porcaro and Bobby Kimball were recruited before their first album release. The band enjoyed great commercial success in the late 1970s and 1980s, beginning with the band’s eponymous debut released in 1978. With the release of the critically acclaimed and commercially successful Toto IV(1982), Toto became one of the best-selling music groups of their era. They are best known for the Top 5 hits “Hold the Line”, “Rosanna”, and “Africa”. Several changes to the lineup have been made over the years. Hungate left in 1982 followed by Kimball in 1984 but rejoined the band in 1998 until 2008. Jeff Porcaro died in 1992 of a heart attack. Hungate rejoined Toto as a touring musician and later a band member. In 2008, Lukather announced his departure from the band, and the remaining band members later went their separate ways. In the summer of 2010, Toto reformed and went on a short European tour, with a new lineup, to benefit Mike Porcaro, who had been diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and was no longer an active member of the band.

The band has released a total of 17 albums, and have sold over 40 million albums to date. The group was honored with several Grammy Awards and was inducted into the Musicians Hall of Fame and Museum in 2009.

Phil Collins – In the Air Tonight

Philip David Charles “Phil” Collins, LVO (born 30 January 1951), is an English singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, music producer and actor. He gained fame as both the drummer and lead singer for the rock bandGenesis, and he also gained worldwide fame as a solo artist.

Collins is one of the most successful songwriters and performers of all time, singing the lead vocals on dozens of hit albums and singles in the UK and the US between 1976 and 2010, either as a solo artist or with Genesis. His solo singles, sometimes dealing with lost love and often featuring his distinctive gated reverb drum sound, ranged from the atmospheric “In the Air Tonight”, dance-rock of “Sussudio”, piano-driven power ballad “Against All Odds”, to the political and religious connotations of “Another Day in Paradise”. Collins has been described by AllMusic as “one of the most successful pop and adult contemporary singers of the ’80s and beyond”.

Collins joined Genesis in 1970 as the group’s drummer and became their lead vocalist in 1975 following the departure of the original lead singer Peter Gabriel. His solo career, which was launched in 1981 and was heavily influenced by his personal life and soul music, brought both himself and Genesis greater commercial success. Collins’s total worldwide sales as a solo artist are 150 million. Collins has won numerous music awards throughout his career, including seven Grammy Awards, six Brit Awards—winning Best British Male three times, three American Music Awards, an Academy Award, two Golden Globe Awards and a Disney Legend Award in 2002 for his solo work. He received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1999, was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2003, and into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Genesis in 2010. Collins was ranked number 10 in “The Greatest Drummers of All Time” list by Gigwise and number nine in a list of “The 20 greatest drummers of the last 25 years” by MusicRadar in 2010. He was inducted into the Modern DrummerHall of Fame in 2012.

Collins is one of only three recording artists (along with Paul McCartney and Michael Jackson) who have sold over 100 million albums worldwide both as solo artists and (separately) as principal members of a band. During his most successful period as a solo artist between 1981 and 1990, Collins had three UK number-one singles and seven number-one singles on the US Billboard Hot 100, as well as a US number one with Genesis in 1986. When his work with Genesis, his work with other artists, as well as his solo career is totalled, Collins had more top 40 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 chart during the 1980s than any other artist. In 2008, Collins was ranked the 22nd most successful artist on the “Billboard Hot 100 All-Time Top Artists”. Although one of the world’s best-selling recording artists and a highly respected drummer, Collins has garnered significant criticism over the years

Gary Clark Jr. – Rock in Rio USA 2015

 

Gary Lee Clark, Jr. (born February 15, 1984) is an American guitarist and actor based in Austin, Texas. Clark shared the stage with various legends of rock and roll, and has stated that he is “influenced by blues, jazz, soul [and] country, as well as hip hop”. Clark’s musical trademarks are his distorted guitar sound and smooth vocal style.

Musical career

Gary Clark Jr. began playing guitar at the age of twelve. Born and raised in Austin, Clark played small gigs throughout his teens, until he met promoter Clifford Antone, proprietor of the Austin music club Antone’s. Antone’s was the launch pad from which Jimmie and Stevie Ray Vaughan redefined blues at the time. Soon after meeting Clifford, Clark began to play with an array of musical icons, including Jimmie Vaughan. Vaughan and others in the Austin music community helped Clark along his musical path, facilitating his ascent in the Texas rock and roll scene. Clark’s music demonstrates how the blues have shaped virtually every medium of music over the past century, from hip-hop to country.

Rolling Stone declared Clark “Best Young Gun” in its April 2011, “Best of Rock” issue.

Clark sang on the bonus track cover of “I Want You Back” by the Jackson 5 on Sheryl Crow’s album 100 Miles from Memphis.

More recently, Clark recorded with Alicia Keys on two different songs in New York, NY.

On August 28, 2012, Alicia Keys revealed via Twitter that Clark’s new album and major-label debut called Blak and Blu would be released on October 22, 2012. Later that day, the news appeared on Clark’s official website.

Clark worked with the Foo Fighters on the track “What Did I Do? / God as My Witness” on their 2014 album Sonic Highways at KLRU-TV Studio 6A in Austin, TX.

Gary Clark announced that his new album The Story Of Sonny Boy Slim will be released worldwide on September 11, 2015.

“Born Under Punches”

Take a look at these hands.
Take a look at these hands.
The hand speaks. The hand of a government man.
Well I’m a tumbler. Born under punches.
I’m so thin.

All I want is to breathe I’m too thin
Won’t you breathe with me?
Find a little space, so we can move in-between In-Between it
And keep on step ahead, of yourself.

Don’t you miss it, don’t you miss it.
Some ‘a you people just about missed it!
Last time to make plans!
Well I’m a tumbler…
I’m a Government Man.

Never seen anything like that before
Falling bodies tuble ‘cross the floor Well I’m a tumbler!
When you get to where you wanna be Thank you! Thank you!
When you get to where you wanna be Don’t even mention it!

Take a look at these hands. They’re passing in-between us.
Take a look at these hands
Take a look at these hands. You don’t have to mention it.
No thanks. I’m a Government Man.

And the heat goes on…And the heat goes on…And the heat goes on…
And the heat goes on…Where the hand has been…And the heat goes
on…And the heat goes on…And the heat goes on…And the heat goes

on…Where the hand has been…And the heat goes on…And the heat

I’m not a drowning man!
And I’m not a burning building! (I’m a tumbler!)
Drowning cannot hurt a man!
Fire cannot hurt a man. (Not the Government Man.)

All I want is to breathe Thank you. Thank you
Won’t you breathe with me?
Find a little space…So we move in-between I’m so thin
And keep one step ahead of yourself. I’m catching up with myself

All I want it to breathe

Tepoe Nash – The Great Spingolly Rock ‘n’ Roll

Biography

     Tepoe Nash was born and raised in the rural part of middle Tennessee,  He began his musical journey at the young age of five when his mom and dad bought him a guitar for his birthday. Although Tepoe loved the guitar, he loved to experiment on other instruments, and by the age of twelve, Tepoe was writing songs, singing lead, and playing drums in a rock band at many of the local venues. Over the years, while developing his songwriting skills and musical abilities on various instruments, Tepoe was involved in several rock bands. Two of the bands were seriously considered by major record labels, but the challenges of keeping the bands together prohibited their further development. After accepting the reality of these challenges, Tepoe decided to pursue a solo musical career.
Tepoe began performing in Nashville, Tennessee, as an acoustic artist at various songwriting venues such as the Bluebird Café, the French Quarter, the Commodore Lounge, the Hall of Fame Lounge, and many others.  Tepoe was inspired to record his acoustic songs and then organized a tour to Las Vegas to promote his new CD. He performed at many cities along the way including Oklahoma City, Amarillo, Flagstaff, Las Vegas, Denver, and St. Louis. Tepoe was then invited to perform on a local Pax television show called “Nashville On Stage”  where he performed several times.  This show was viewed by approximately 3.5 million people in the Tennessee area. Tepoe also had the honor to began collaborating and performing with Hall of Famer, Wayne Moss, also known as Barefoot Jerry.  Wayne is better known for his guitar playing and session work.  He has more session work than could be mentioned here but some of his accomplishments that Tepoe loved are, He recorded the original guitar track for Roy Orbison on “O Pretty Woman” and was the lead guitarist on “Only Daddy” for Waylon Jennings.   He also was a musician on Bob Dylan’s greatest CD “Blonde on Blonde!

Although Tepoe enjoys performing his acoustic music, his burning desire for rock music was reignited and led him to work on his latest rock project entitled “The Great SpinGolly”. Three of the songs on the CD made it to #1 on Song Planet Radio and is currently being featured on several radio stations around the world! He is really proud of how the CD turned out because every element of this project was completed by him. Tepoe played all of the instruments, sang all of the vocal parts, mixed and recorded the tracks, designed the artwork for the CD, and wrote eight out of the ten songs on the CD. The other two songs are Tepoe’s versions of some rock and roll classics.

Tepoe loves working on different kinds of music and has recently been recording and releasing some new country music songs.  These new songs have also been receiving radio airplay!

Tepoe received a patent on a new type of guitar and started a business entitled, Computerized Guitar, he is currently working on the development of his invention, and invites you to check it out at www.ComputerizedGuitar.com.

Tepoe is currently recording new music and will continue to diligently pursue his musical interests. Tepoe says, “Music is in my blood!  I’m grateful to God for my past success in music and I’m really excited about what the future holds!”

Buckethead with Claypool Bernie Worrell and Brain

From Wikipedia :

Les Claypool, bassist of many bands, including Primus, collaborated with virtuoso guitarist Buckethead, funk keyboardist Bernie Worrell, and former Primus drummer Brain (Bryan Mantia) under the name Colonel Claypool’s Bucket of Bernie Brains (a combination of all the band members’ names), after they met at the 2002 Bonnaroo Music and Arts festival. Worrell, Brain and Buckethead were there to perform with Bill Laswell as Praxis. Laswell was not able to play at the concert, so Claypool invited them to jam with him. From this point, they developed the concept of this supergroup. Their concerts pushed the improvisational envelope by preparing no material and not rehearsing beforehand. At one of their shows they prepared sandwiches onstage for the audience members to eat.

Colonel Claypool’s Bucket of Bernie Brains reunited in 2004 to record The Big Eyeball in the Sky, an album with equal parts instrumental and vocal songs. The band began an 18-state tour of the US on September 24, 2004. Claypool said the tour was “a traveling, oversized sock-puppet show spawned by the characters of a Tobe Hooper film and scored by Danny Elfman on bad acid.” The album features only one guest, the multi-talented Gabby La La (noted as Gabby Lang on Les Claypool’s Frog Brigade‘s Purple Onion) on vocals and sitar. She also opened on every show during the 2004 tour to mixed reviews as a solo act, sometimes with members of C2B3.

FAST CAR – SARAH JANE MORRIS

“Fast Car”

You got a fast car
I want a ticket to anywhere
Maybe we make a deal
Maybe together we can get somewhere
Any place is better
Starting from zero got nothing to lose
Maybe we’ll make something
Me myself I got nothing to prove

You got a fast car
I got a plan to get us out of here
I been working at the convenience store
Managed to save just a little bit of money
Won’t have to drive too far
Just ‘cross the border and into the city
You and I can both get jobs
And finally see what it means to be living

See my old man’s got a problem
He live with the bottle that’s the way it is
He says his body’s too old for working
His body’s too young to look like his
My mama went off and left him
She wanted more from life than he could give
I said somebody’s got to take care of him
So I quit school and that’s what I did

You got a fast car
Is it fast enough so we can fly away?
We gotta make a decision
Leave tonight or live and die this way

So remember when we were driving driving in your car
Speed so fast I felt like I was drunk
City lights lay out before us
And your arm felt nice wrapped ’round my shoulder
And I had a feeling that I belonged
I had a feeling I could be someone, be someone, be someone

You got a fast car
We go cruising, entertain ourselves
You still ain’t got a job
And I work in a market as a checkout girl
I know things will get better
You’ll find work and I’ll get promoted
We’ll move out of the shelter
Buy a bigger house and live in the suburbs

So remember when we were driving driving in your car
Speed so fast I felt like I was drunk
City lights lay out before us
And your arm felt nice wrapped ’round my shoulder
And I had a feeling that I belonged
I had a feeling I could be someone, be someone, be someone

You got a fast car
I got a job that pays all our bills
You stay out drinking late at the bar
See more of your friends than you do of your kids
I’d always hoped for better
Thought maybe together you and me find it
I got no plans I ain’t going nowhere
So take your fast car and keep on driving

So remember when we were driving driving in your car
Speed so fast I felt like I was drunk
City lights lay out before us
And your arm felt nice wrapped ’round my shoulder
And I had a feeling that I belonged
I had a feeling I could be someone, be someone, be someone

You got a fast car
Is it fast enough so you can fly away?
You gotta make a decision
Leave tonight or live and die this way
