I know this is old news but, i just got shocked !!

Was having my morning coffe and the ellen shows starts. Rihanna is the opening act and she starts her song, and in the background I glance at her band and come accross a long haired Nuno Bttencourt in her band...

I had to do a double take on it, and thought no way, what the hell is he doing in her band....


So I googled it and low and behold I was right..
http://www.retroblog.net/2009/11/16/...or-world-tour/

So when did all of this happen. I thought Extreme was doing a world tour. I guess Rihanna is a better gig... I understand he needs to work to pay the bills, but I didn't know times were that tough....

hehehe nice to see a guitar shredder on TV though....

I think that was sarcasm, that how bad does he have it, that he's playing guitar for a living, at least that was MY guess.

"Rihanna...said would have had an R&B sound and seems to be leaning towards Rock. She has teamed up with British duo Chase and Status which we should expect to have a lot of drums and a whole lotta bass.

rightAccording to the producers, this album is worth spending on despite the recession. He told the Britains Daily star “We’ve spent the past few weeks working with Rihanna and her people in an undisclosed location. She’s a lovely girl, so professional and it was an honor to work with her. The stuff she’s doing now I would definitely go out and buy myself, it’s a big change.” Adding, “Rihanna got in contact with us after hearing our track Saxon. She loved the feel of the drums and said she wanted a similar thing for her next record. It’s over 140 beats per minute but there’s also a dub step vibe on the things we’ve done with her. It’s more musical, which we’re into right now.” "

Re: I know this is old news but, i just got shocked !!

Rihanna's choice to have Nuno in her band is a great surprise, and Nuno assures that her live sound is really complimentary to his "style." When he heard the direction Rihanna wants to go in a live setting Nuno said, "Wow, this rocks! It's heavy and funky, and it hit me that this is 'my' thing, this is 'my' style…"

Once Nuno and Rihanna blended their talents and began the first round of rehearsals, Nuno stated, "It did not disappoint. Even better than what I expected because she also has the most incredible band, and I get the privilege to add to their wall of sound. It's gonna be fun. Come see and hear it for yourself!"

As for the future of EXTREME, Nuno explains, "NO… this is NOT the end of EXTREME. We have a live DVD and CD coming out in early 2010 and we will be writing new material throughout the year. We had a great run across the globe on 'Saudades de Rock'... and we'll be back."

I have to say, If I were capable enough, I'd love the opportunity to tour with the likes of teh session guys that make up the backing bands of these pop stars. You get to play with some very cool musicians and see the world on someone else's tab. that sounds better than a real job!!!

I guess they can play all her hits. I hear she's very concerned with beats. Hope they strike gold with this and put the smackdown on the R&B world. I bet the bassist slaps really well and the drummer pounds them skins for her. Bloody hell.

I saw Nuno with Perry Farrell's Satellite Party (opening for Pearl Jam)...
the Nuno/Farrell combo didn't last long, so my guess is this won't last either. He was a shell of his former self, but that could've been the Farrell influence.

Hate burst your bubble but I didn't even hear an ounce of nuno on the Ellen show, not a note, you really couldn't tell if it was him or the other guy... id say her live shows will feature maybe a solo from nuno, cause that happens usually at those pop gigs. My wife saw Pink and the guitarist did some solos and even snuck in parts from Eugenes Trick bag !!
