Today is the 31st anniversary of Extreme’s Extreme II: Pornograffiti. And, while it was their second album, it ws the fist that I had heard of them. Nuno Bettencourt is one amazing guitarist. He is perhaps the fastest clean picker I’ve ever heard. It is aa bur sometimes but so clean a riff or run. Anywhat! With this video be warned that in the first 10 seconds, he drops the “f” bomb and this is a medley of Extreme tunes, but the first part, the “FLight of the Wounded Bumblebee” has always amazed me. It looks like he’s barely playing anything, just moving his hands, but no, it’s really him. Enjoy!
Until tomorrow, same blog channel…
“Sexy Suzi, losing all her sleep. Feeling very hungry. I say, got her tongue in cheek. Uh, huh. Sweet and sour, a bitter tasting treat. It’s the only flavor I think she likes to… She likes to eat” – “Suzi (Wants Her All Day What?)” (Cherone/Bettencourt.)
