ROCK WHO’S WHO TO PLAY THE WHO
The long-overdue tribute to THE WHO called “Substitute: The Songs Of The Who” is to be released on June, 12th. The release received the approving nod from the band leader Pete Townshend – no wonder, as the players are the cream of contemporary rock scene.
Moreover, THE WHO themselves will grace the CD with their live rendition of “Substitute” featuring Stereophonics’ Kelly Jones on vocals, that was recorded last December during a benefit concert at London’s Royal Albert Hall.
The tracklisting looks like that:
CAST – The Seeker
OCEAN COLOUR SCENE – Anyway, Anyhow, Anywhere
Paul Weller – Circles
David Bowie – Pictures Of Lily
PEARL JAM – The Kids Are Alright
FASTBALL – The Real Me
UNAMERICAN – Naked Eye
STEREOPHONICS – Who Are You
PHISH – 5:15
Sheryl Crow – Behind Blue Eyes
THE WHO & Kelly Jones – Substitute
YOU BRING THE WINE, NAZ BRING THE WEATHER
If you still can hum “Love Hurts” or “Glenn Coe Massacre” this one’s for you: a NAZARETH tribute CD, entitled “Another Hair Of The Dog”, is in the works to be out on July 20th through Deadline Records.
The project is overseen by Lea Hart and involved are an array of old warriors as Glenn Hughes singing “Piece of my Heart”. The others include Paul Chapman of UFO fame, Phil Campbell from MOTORHEAD, Paul DiAnno, Mickey Moody, Neil Murray,
Chris Thompson, who served for Manfred Mann‘s EARTHBAND, Doogie White of RAINBOW, Bernie Torme, Steve Overland off FM and Bill Liesegang.
