Sounds | Don Felder, Rock You
Een smaakmaker voor zijn nieuwe album American Rock&Roll dat op 5 april zal verschijnen. Amerikaanse Rock inderdaad: simpele structuur, meezingrefreintje, catchy, alle cliché's op een hoop en dus op maat gesneden voor de U.S. radio stations. De gastmuzikanten zijn niet de minste: Sammy Hagar (die binnenkort zelf zijn nieuwe album uitbrengt), Joe Satriani en Bob Weir. Laat het jullie smaken.
Even woordje uitleg
“Rock You” initially came together when Felder flew to Hagar’s Bay Area studio to record vocals. From there, the other collaborations just sort of fell into place, as the former Eagles guitarist explained in an interview with Rolling Stone.“Just as we were finishing, Joe Satriani came walking in,” Felder recalled. “I said, ‘Joe, grab a guitar and let’s figure out some guitar parts together.’ Joe and I plugged and sat in the control room and had a blast writing and arranging the guitar parts together. Just as we were finishing the guitars, Bob Weir came strolling down the hall and I asked him to sing on the chorus with us. It just all fell together and was so much fun to work with Sammy, Joe and Bob on this track. It totally rocks!”“Rock You” is the second song released from American Rock ‘n’ Roll. The title track, released in January, featured Felder alongside Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash and drummer Chad Smith of the Red Hot Chili Peppers.Other guests on the album include Mick Fleetwood, Peter Frampton and Richie Sambora. American Rock ‘n’ Roll is due on April 5. website
