Extreme (Nuno Bettencourt) – South Park Festival Tampere, FIN, 5th June 2015

Nuno Bettencourt, Gary Cherone, Pat Badger and Kevin Figueiredo

The last time I saw Extreme play was on November 18th, 1992 in Helsinki, Finland. A stadium show with the original line-up of Nuno Bettencourt, Gary Cherone, Pat Badger and Paul Geary, who was now replaced by Kevin “K-Fig” Figueiredo. It was the first major rock concert I ever went to, and I had no idea how far the seats […]

What is in an image?

From the year I turned 16, I was pretty much raised by Nuno Bettencourt and his idealism. Part of the things that he drilled home for me was that a rock band was not about the image but the music. It was always supposed to be about the music. I agreed, I was a bit of a nerdy kid, and […]

Rolling Stone covers Extreme (Nuno Bettencourt) with bombastic writing

I Cannot Deal. I simply cannot deal. Who HIRED this guy?! Who ever hired him should be fired! I fucking looove Extreme, Nuno Bettencourt in particular, as everyone who has ever known me is well aware of (and if you aren’t aware of it, you’re no real friend) and here I was thinking to myself, that it is sooo nice […]

Dreams of Nuno Bettencourt and Steven Tyler coming true

Adding Joe Perry and Johnny Depp into the mix would not be bad.

About a year ago, I wanted Nuno Bettencourt to stop touring with Rihanna. (Nothing against the girl, just that I missed my rock dude Nuno.) Then, I wanted Nuno to join forces with Aerosmith. OK. 2/3 of the way there. I’ve got Steven Tyler in, but I’m still to hear a good mashup between Extreme and Aerosmith; √Ą√§rismith, I’ve already […]

Embarrassing confessions about my rock fandom

I am a bit of a snob when it comes to my rock n’ roll. As soon as I hear something I don’t like, I turn my nose up at the entire band. (Then again, I did forgive Aerosmith for Angel and Lightning Strikes, and Extreme for… Ehrm… The entire III Sides… *cough*) I am also super conscious of the […]

MySpace buddies with Nuno Bettencourt

Don’t I wish the old days of innocence were to return. The days, when being on Nuno Bettencourt’s personal MySpace page’s friends list was like a huge deal… Obviously, should Nuno friend me on Facebook I’d bloody well draw my last breath out of sheer shock, because, well, the times of innocence are gone – even for Nuno. For a […]

What’s so hard about being a rock star?

Hahah, this is an odd thing that popped into my mind trying to explain to a classical music fanatic that why rock music is a whole different thing and how you do need to think about it differently to classical to understand it’s full value. An hour ago I was listening to Pavarotti enjoying every note he produced, cursing myself […]
