From Nuno's myspace:

Hey all.......Nuno.. here. I wanted to share some news with you... A friend and Music Director, Tony Bruno, reached out to me and asked if I would be interested in playing guitar with Rihanna. Rihanna is a regular in the Bettencourt-house playlist... And as much as I dig her as an artist... my first thought was that there isn't a whole lot of guitar in her music and therefore probably not the greatest fit for what I do.

But before I had a chance to verbalize that thought… Tony said, "before you say anything let me play you the direction she wants to go live." And when I heard it... I said wow, this rocks… it's heavy and funky... and it hit me that this is MY sh*t... this is my style... how I love to play... I got very excited at the possibility of playing some of her great songs with a heavier treatment. When I asked Tony Bruno why?... he told me that Rihanna loves bands like Paramore and Linkin Park and loves to push it up a notch or two live in the rock department. Hmmm... let me think? Touring and sharing the stage with a cool and talented artist like Rihanna... and being able to bring what I do passionately to the table as a musician and performer...? IM IN! And having finished the first round of rehearsals... 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!

Nuno

And BTW... 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 do Rock....and we'll be back.


I'm not the best person to talk from an indipendent point of view about Nuno.
So... the only question is: what will I decide to see from under the stage? Nuno's playing or Rihanna?? biggrin.gif

hehe interesting news Jerry - and I must confess I don't know who Rihanna is (can you recommend any YT videos?).

To be honest it doesn't really matter - as long as we get more funk metal riffs in the style of pornografitti I am happy! biggrin.gif

Personally I love this version by the Manic Street Preachers!

It also makes quite a good Acoustic track for Open Mic Nights!!!

I think her vocals and Nuno's playing will compliment each other quite nicely! This will make for some very cool "question (vocal) and answer (guitar)" lines.. cool.gif

No. We don't get that kind of music in Sweden. It auto-transforms to this:

It is either going to be too good or it will be a complete blasphemy. There will be no in between.

Hahaha, OK, bringing it back to the original topic....
I reckon Nuno will do a similar thing with Rihanna that he did with Janet Jackson on Black Cat!
I'm quite interested to hear the final product now as I quite enjoyed his collab with JJ!!

It's great to hear that you know this song. I have all Nuno's records, so I will do something similar in the future smile.gif
