The duo has worked with many K-pop groups such as SHINee, TXT, GOT7, ENHYPEN and Taemin. Additionally, ARCADES has already worked with BTS on three album songs: Inner child, Mikrokosmos and Never seen.

In addition to the duo and Jimin, there were other well-known producers and songwriters in the photo. From in-house producers at HYBE, Slow Rabbit, Prod Evan and PDogg to Swedish singer-songwriter Garbriel Brandes, big-name musicians filled the studio.

Meanwhile, Swedish singer-songwriter Garbriel Brandes also dropped some footage and captioned it, “Thank you to everyone who participated in these two amazing days @hybe.labels.audition, it was real. And such a great meeting with Jimin from @bts.bighitofficial”, giving a major clue to Jimin’s upcoming solo.

As BTS takes a break from group activities to focus on their solo career, the new stills indicate that PJM1 maybe just around the corner.

Camila Cabello Prevents Gwen Stefani From Taking A Country Singer For Her The Voice Team—Watch! https://triakel.com/camila-cabello-prevents-gwen-stefani-from-taking-a-country-singer-for-her-the-voice-team-watch/ Fri, 16 Sep 2022 16:00:00 +0000 https://triakel.com/camila-cabello-prevents-gwen-stefani-from-taking-a-country-singer-for-her-the-voice-team-watch/

The voice is back for season 22, and the competition between the coaches is already at its peak!

In a clip from the NBC singing competition series shared exclusively with PEOPLE ahead of its Sept. 19 premiere, singer-songwriter Morgan Myles delivered a blind audition of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” that prompted four coaches to turn over their chairs – and sparked conflict between them.

Seconds after Myles, 35, began singing the opening lyrics to the 1984 hit, Gwen Stefani pressed the red button on his chair and turned towards the stage, immediately followed by Camila Cabello — although the “Hollaback Girl” singer, 52, has already been blocked by another trainer. During the first chorus of the song, john legend turned his chair and Blake Shelton immediately followed suit.

Once Myles was done making her way through the acoustic guitar, Stefani stood up and spoke to the contestant. “See that? I turned around, she looked straight into my soul and she was like, ‘There’s Gwen Stefani. I want to be on her team,’ she joked before turning to Cabello “And then I looked, and it was blocked! It was you!”

Legend, 43, then asked Myles about his hometown – Nashville, which excited Shelton – before complimenting his song choice. “I feel like there aren’t many people singing this song just because it’s so intimidating. It takes cojones to come here and sing it with such confidence,” he said. -he declares. “Then we got to see your lineup, and you hit those beautiful piercing notes. It was exquisite. One of the best blind auditions I’ve seen in quite a long time.”

Myles went on to detail her career experience so far, noting that she has worked as a touring musician and demo singer for over a decade. “I’ve even opened festivals with Blake before, but long before,” she added. “It’s been a long journey. It hasn’t been easy.”

“I’ve been in Nashville for 16 years, but I’m a full-time touring artist. I played 117 shows last year — solo, acoustic — in nearly all 50 states,” the artist continued. , accompanied backstage. by his parents, who clapped alongside the host Carson Daly throughout his performance. “There were days when I was close to losing it, but I was very lucky because my parents were my rocks in a really, really tough industry.”

Cabello, 25, then began to prepare his case for Myles to be part of his team. “You have such a beautiful tone. I want to hear records from you. You kind of have a Rihanna-esque way of doing it, singing with your hands,” said the former Fifth Harmony member. “I was like, ‘Yeah, that’s what I’m looking for. She sings with her soul and makes people feel,’ and for me, I feel like that’s the biggest hope for a artist.”

Asked what kind of music she wants to do, Myles said: “As I’m very borderline country, I’ve always been extremely soulful, but I like pop melodies – but I like tell stories, and hopefully we can really find that great path.”

“I know you’re the least likely to choose me,” Cabello acknowledged. “You have Blake, country, and John, soul – I mean, I love pop melodies, and I’m also a storyteller. I feel like you know who you are as an artist, and if you have chosen me as your coach, I would love to help you on this journey.”

Shelton then expressed a desire to have a “heart-to-heart” conversation with Myles and pressed his button, which turned off the lights on everyone but the two of them. “Are you going to sing him Barry White?” What’s going to happen ? Legend asked.

“When I moved to Nashville, I was 17 and started singing demos for songwriters, and that’s where I made all my beer money,” said the country superstar in Myles. “So when I hear you talk about that, and then I hear you talk about playing the midday crap spots at festivals — I’ve done all that.”

“Me too, by the way,” Cabello joked.

“His microphone was also supposed to be muted,” Shelton replied before turning his attention back to Myles. “Your gift is that you can really make people believe what you sing about, and you just need someone to help you through this journey. I’d be honored to be that coach for you, Morgan.”

Although she was stopped from taking Myles on her team by Cabello, Stefani wanted the chance to talk to the musician. “You are amazing. I’m so sad not to be in the running. It looks like you’re already on a Grammy stage, it’s ridiculous,” she said before campaigning for husband Shelton. “One thing I will say, my husband, I’ve seen him off this show helping people. He has the biggest heart. I’m really, really excited for you right now.”

Cabello then asked to have a final word with Myles. “I want what’s best for you, and if what you want is Blake’s support and help to be a country artist, absolutely,” she advised. “If what you want is to blaze your own trail – you’re not a country artist, you’re not a pop artist, you’re just Morgan – then I’d really love to work with you.”

“Interesting strategy,” Legend chimed in.

At the end of the clip, Stefani asked Myles to choose her trainer. “Come on, Morgan,” Shelton cheered.

Parkway Drive Singer – ‘Darker Still’ ‘Almost Broke’ Band Dynamics https://triakel.com/parkway-drive-singer-darker-still-almost-broke-band-dynamics/ Mon, 12 Sep 2022 14:46:28 +0000 https://triakel.com/parkway-drive-singer-darker-still-almost-broke-band-dynamics/

Parkway Drive’s Winston McCall was the latest guest to appear on Full Metal Jackie’s weekend radio show, to discuss the band’s latest album, even darker. The new album challenged the band in a way the band had never been challenged before and McCall reveals he “almost broke” the band’s internal dynamic in the process.

That said, the album pushes the band’s sonic palette in ways they haven’t gone before, due to the influence of the pandemic lockdown, according to McCall. The musician reveals that they took on a no-holds-barred approach, thinking this might be their last outing with fears the music might not return.

The pandemic also had another effect on the group, causing them to take a closer look at how they communicated with each other and realizing that a change needed to be made. This led to a canceled tour earlier this year, and McCall explains how they have since adjusted to hopefully make their future healthier.

Check out more chat below.

We’re here to celebrate the release of Parkway Drive’s new record even darker, which is out now. Winston, what is different about this album in terms of challenge with higher creative expectations?

Oh Lord. (Laughs) Where do I start this one? Basically, this album pushes the boundaries of what we’ve done as a band and what we can do as a band further than anything we’ve done before. I’m sure all bands kind of say that every time they make an album, but for us, we started writing this in the first year of the COVID madness, and when all of that was happening, basically we shut down the whole music industry. We couldn’t tour. Basically, the whole world thought this could be it, like it could literally be this for the whole world. So when it comes to writing, we’re like, ‘Well, if we’re just writing one more album, what do you actually want to write?’

Now it turns out that everything is in place and rolling again. But when we started writing, we approached it with no restraint [approach]. It might be the last thing you do. So how far do you want to go with it? And for us, it was like, “Well, if you’re not going to get another chance, you might as well go as far as you can in terms of sound changes and whatever you want to do.” This translates into a very varied album in terms of sound palette. What we’ve tried to accomplish, the types of songs we’ve tried to write and put on an album and the scope of all of that is much broader than anything we’ve done before.

Resist / Epitaph

This is your seventh album in a period of nearly 20 years. What have you done to cultivate creative spontaneity in such a familiar environment?

Yeah, it’s interesting because you’re trying to walk that line of familiarity and knowing what works, but also trying to push yourself into more uncomfortable places to try to expand what you’re doing. I think whenever you get a little too comfortable for us, we get a little bored. You do one thing and play a thousand gigs of a song and you kind of decide you want to do something else to add to what you’re doing.

For us, it’s just a constant back and forth between the three main songwriting members, which is myself, Jeff, our lead guitarist, and Ben, our drummer. And we kind of push things and we push each other with basically whatever influence we have or whatever we want to do within the band itself. And we all have our own very varied places that we draw influence from and train from, that no one else in the group hits individually. So when it all comes together, we find that it always increases regardless of the individual goal in the first place, which is great.

It’s just trying to ride that line of no [pissing] other people, but at the same time, making sure you’re pushing them enough by saying, “No, not far enough. We have to keep pushing. We have to keep pushing on this. It’s too safe.” So, that’s kind of it for me, to be honest, and we pretty much got it. This album, I’m not even going to mince words, but it pushed us way further than we ever would have in terms of friendship to the point where it almost broke the whole band and that dynamic in general.

Parkway Drive, “Glitch”

The latest single “Glitch” is about night terrors and sleep paralysis. What intrigues you most about the subliminal function of the human mind?

Oh man it’s such a fascinating thing because when you witness these happenings or it’s part of your life in general you realize how powerful the human mind is and how much it controls the very fabric how we perceive reality. It is something that is not only fascinating, but also terrifying to people. It’s for me. It’s something that I find captivating in its unknown. The fact that you can always be at the mercy of your own body and what that can actually do to the concept of fear and the concept of terror in general is the ultimate existential fear, which I think any good film about horror or anything to do with the human psyche is still trying to capture.

It’s that feeling of helplessness and the small nature of what we think of as our little slice of reality, and as soon as the barriers come down and the mind goes wild, it’s truly terrifying.

Winston, you canceled a North American tour in order to focus on healing within the band. What is the biggest health issue that endangers touring bands, especially yourselves?

Oh my, where do we start with this one? For us, it was essentially grassroots level communication. It was succumbing to the grind and not knowing any way out, including communicating with the people you are closest to, who are our band mates. Every day the work that we do and I’ll call it work because being a musician is such a damn hard and incredibly isolating job. Like it’s an industry where you’re in a constant ebb and flow between incredible ups and downs and massive connection with a lot of people at the same time. Then there is extreme isolation in terms of being able to communicate with another person about how you feel and what your existence is like. If you don’t have a team behind you that places you or helps foster a healthy environment, you kind of have no guardrails and that can send you way over the edge.

For us, it was as if we were responsible for the functioning of the team. When you start doing this as a kid and then grow up for 20 years in a group and you’re never taught how to communicate properly as an adult, or even function properly in terms of reaching out or being vulnerable or being open, and you’re going through 20 years of living in a touring band, it does a lot of damage. We never realized it until we started preparing for the tour that we canceled. It became apparent that many of the band members had major issues which only came to light when we stopped during COVID.

Once the idea of ​​starting over came back, we were like, hold on to something, something is seriously wrong here. What are we going to do ? Once we started talking about it, we realized there were a lot of mental health issues we had to deal with. So that’s what we did. Playing catch up to 20 years of growth and communication, and basically going through counseling and group therapy and stuff like that to try to work your way through that and figure out how to catch up. It’s a really, really hard thing to do as a band.

I think the music industry is still catching up with a big toll, a sanity check, because there’s a lot of very unique stuff around it that provides very easy pitfalls for people who don’t are not in the most stable settings. of mind.

Registers of epitaphs

Like all other bands, the pandemic has effectively shut you down for an inordinate amount of time. How was starting the backup a full reset, like Parkway Drive 2.0, so to speak?

That’s it, like a complete reset for us. Basically, we haven’t even started yet. We’re still like running the engine. We played a show. It was a New Year’s concert this year. And it’s been like that since it all stopped. So being from Australia, first of all, suddenly imposed a huge challenge on yourself.

Even when it all started everywhere, we look at the festival season on your way and the festivals in Europe and the tours are happening, and we are just starting the shows again in our country. For a long time, our borders were completely closed. So even if we wanted to tour we weren’t even allowed to go out, which I never thought would be something I would see in my lifetime. I didn’t think it was possible. We’ve been through so many scenarios over the years where I’m like, “Nothing can stop the music industry. Nothing can stop this band.” We flew over volcanic ash. We have had natural disasters. We’ve had floods, we’ve had fires… nothing slowed this thing down. It’s not going to stop. And then COVID appeared. I did not think of a pandemic. have you?

For us, it was a chance to write an album and record it, almost self-destructing at the same time, and then figuring out how not to self-destruct to put it all together. So when we come back, it’s in a healthier, stronger place, which is really, really great. It’s just for now that we’re doing all the work on the back end, this plan for the release, the plan for the album, the plan for the shows, the tours that are coming up and doing it in a way that basically harnesses everything that is good we have within this group and leaves behind all the negatives, which is a good result in the end.

We kind of had to drag ourselves through hell in the middle of a pandemic to do it. But at the same time, I feel like where we’re at as a band is a lot healthier and probably in a better place than we’ve ever been, to be quite frank with that, which is sometimes just I have to walk straight through the fire. Not you ?

Winston, it’s great talking to you. I wish you the best of luck, and I’m really excited about this new record. And I hope to see you again very soon.

Oh yeah. We will return. That’s the thing. It takes time, but we’ll be back and if you step in a little and it self-destructs or you have to wait a little longer, we’re here for the long haul and we’ll make the long haul count.

Thanks to Winston McCall of Parkway Drive for the interview. The ‘Darker Still’ album is available now and you can order it via the group website.

A sexual assault complaint has been filed against pop star Ricky Martin, who recently sued his nephew over what he said were false sexual abuse allegations.

The complaint was filed Friday at a police station in the capital of San Juan, police spokesman Edward Ramírez told The Associated Press on Saturday.

A person who was not authorized to speak about the case confirmed that Martin’s nephew, Dennis Yadiel Sanchez Martin, had filed the complaint.

This appears to be a response to Martin filing a $20 million lawsuit against his nephew after he claimed he had an incestuous relationship with the singer.

Information including who filed the complaint and details of the allegations is not public, given the nature of the complaint.

The person said the complaint does not automatically trigger an arrest because the alleged incident is not recent, adding that police will investigate and determine if charges are warranted.

Sanchez previously sought a restraining order against Martin in July, but a judge later filed the case after Sanchez admitted under oath that he had never been sexually assaulted by the singer.

Flavia Fernandez, spokeswoman for Martin, said her legal team is assessing the situation and not issuing public comment at this time.

Martin, 50, claims he was ‘persecuted, besieged, harassed, stalked and extorted’ by the 21-year-old, whom he calls an ‘unsuitable person’ according to TMZ.

The Livin’ La Vida Loca singer filed a lawsuit Wednesday in San Juan, claiming Sanchez was trying to “murder” his reputation and made him and his family feel “in danger.”

Martin listed a number of embarrassing acts allegedly committed by his nephew, including posting the singer’s cellphone number on his Instagram account and even creating an Instagram account for one of his children, which which made him “uncomfortable”.

He also claims to have lost a number of multi-million dollar deals due to his nephew’s “false claims” and wants the nephew to make up for his losses.

The Puerto Rican singer says that months after Sanchez – the son of the pop singer’s half-sister, Vanessa Martin – withdrew the restraining order against him, he began messaging Martin via Instagram, threatening to ” murder his reputation and integrity” unless he pays for it. .

Additionally, the lawsuit said Sanchez falsely claimed he had been romantically involved with Martin for seven months and that the singer didn’t want it to end and would call Sanchez frequently.

“Nothing further from the truth,” the lawsuit said.

The attorneys also noted that a judge previously issued Sanchez two restraining orders in an unrelated harassment case.

Martin says that prior to the restraining order, Sanchez “publicly bragged” about being his nephew according to the publication and inundated him with messages for four months.

The King of Latin Pop asks the judge to order Sanchez to cease all communication with Martin and his family.

The star is a father of four, twins Matteo and Valentino, 14, as well as daughter Lucia, three, and son Renn, three, whom he shares with Swedish-Syrian conceptual artist husband Jwan Yosef, 38 year.

He comes after Sanchez dropped his incest and abuse case against his uncle in late July.

He originally filed a temporary restraining order against Martin on July 1, alleging he had a sexual relationship with the singer, who became violent and stalked him after the relationship ended.

Martin flatly denied the allegations and portrayed his nephew as a troubled young man with serious mental health issues.

A Puerto Rican judge formally dismissed the temporary restraining order, at Sanchez’s request later that month.

After the dismissal, Martin spoke to the press and said to his nephew: “To the person who was saying this nonsense, I wish him the best – and I hope he finds some help so he can start a new life filled with love and truth and joy – and it doesn’t hurt anyone else.

Earlier, he posted on Instagram in response to the court’s decision with the caption: ‘Truth prevails’.

“It was never anything more than a troubled individual making false allegations with absolutely nothing to back them up,” his legal team said. “We are happy that our client has seen justice and can now move forward with his life and career.”

“As we anticipated, the temporary protective order was not extended by the court,” Martin’s legal team continued. “The accuser confirmed in court that his decision to dismiss the case was his own, without any outside influence or pressure.”

According to the original restraining order filed by Sanchez, he claimed that he and Martin had broken up two months prior, after dating for seven months.

Sanchez alleged that Martin did not accept the separation and was seen loitering near his home on at least three occasions, according to the order reviewed by El Vocero, a Puerto Rican newspaper.

Martin’s legal team told DailyMail.com at the time that the accuser was “struggling with profound mental health issues” and outright dismissed the “disgusting” allegations.

RACHEL BOLAN praises singer ERIK GRÖNWALL: ‘People say ‘SKID ROW is back’ https://triakel.com/rachel-bolan-praises-singer-erik-gronwall-people-say-skid-row-is-back/ Sat, 10 Sep 2022 15:55:30 +0000 https://triakel.com/rachel-bolan-praises-singer-erik-gronwall-people-say-skid-row-is-back/

In a new interview with Artists registered with ADIKA Live!, SKID RANK bass player Rachel Bolan talked about the Swedish singer Erik Grönwallwho joined the group earlier this year replacing PZ Theart. He said (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET): “He just blew us away, and he keep on going to amaze us. Not only is he a great singer, but his talents go beyond that. He’s the first singer we’ve ever had that plays guitar, and he plays it well. And he writes — he’s a really good songwriter — which is great. We like that. It’s just more creativity between the five of us.”

Referring to the fact that Erik was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia in March 2021, Bolan went on to praise “the singer’s outlook on life, because he now has a different outlook than the rest of us. He probably appreciates it – I wouldn’t even say ‘probably’; he absolutely appreciates her more than us, doesn’t take anything for granted,” he said. “His work ethic is like ours where it’s, like, ‘Well, we’re not going to stop until it’s not well done or the way we think is exactly how we want it.

“As you can see, I’m very excited about this, and we all share the same excitement,” Bolan added. “I’ve heard a lot of people say that line since he joined the band, and it couldn’t make me feel any better. But people say, ‘SKID RANK is back.’ And when I hear that, it’s comforting, one, and two, it’s just such a powerful statement to hear when you’re in the band, because you’re like, ‘Well, we haven’t really gotten anywhere’, but then you realize, ‘Okay, now we’ve hit the jackpot.’ We have a guy who works just as hard as we do, wants it as much as we do, and takes pride in his work just like us. … We dig the work together and we have a lot of laughs, which, as you know, being in a band is so important. And having five like-minded people is Great important, especially at our age. Everyone should have the same goal in mind, whether it’s a huge goal or a smaller goal. And it helps — it really helps — to just move on and move on.”

Like its namesake, central to the Upper West Side – West Side Rag https://triakel.com/like-its-namesake-central-to-the-upper-west-side-west-side-rag/ Wed, 07 Sep 2022 14:31:23 +0000 https://triakel.com/like-its-namesake-central-to-the-upper-west-side-west-side-rag/

In July, the Rag asked (and answered) What do you need to do to have a street named after you?? We also invited readers to ask us about the stories behind Upper West Side street names. Today we have the story of Nobel Prize-winning author Isaac Bashevis Singer, who immigrated to New York in 1935 and moved to UWS a few years later. The neighborhood was the backdrop for some of his stories, and the New York Times once called him “the tall old man of the Upper West Side”. Send us a note at info@westsiderag.com to suggest which traffic sign we should investigate next.

For Isaac Bashevis Singer, the Nobel Prize-winning literary giant, the Upper West Side played a major role in the story of its own evolution. It was there that he found his place as an artist and grew into a new and successful life in the United States.

Born in Leoncin, Poland, in 1904, he spent his childhood in Warsaw and in various Polish shtetls. In 1935 he emigrated to New York, having presciently decided that the metastasized Nazi threat in Germany was going to be very bad for the Jews. He landed in Brooklyn, and things were rough at first. He felt lost in this foreign country, where literature written in Yiddish seemed dead. But then, around 1941, he and his new wife, Alma, whom he had met a few years earlier in the Catskills, moved to 410 Central Park West near 100th Street. Soon after, Singer began to take off – writing prolifically fiction and contributing journalism to the Yiddish-language newspaper, The Jewish Daily Forward (the front still publishes, in Yiddish and English).

Singer stayed on Central Park West for about 20 years until he was robbed at gunpoint in the lobby of his apartment. He moved briefly to West 72nd Street, then, in 1965, to The Belnord, a huge Renaissance-style limestone rental building that took up an entire city block on West 86th Street. When it was completed in 1909, it was the talk of the town, and according to this recent New York Times article about ithas been since.

Towards the last years of his life, Singer began spending most of his time in Surfside, Florida, although he never gave up his rent-controlled apartment at The Belnord. A year before his death in 1991, West 86th Street off Broadway in Amsterdam was named Isaac Bashevis Singer Boulevard in his honor. (The street where he lived in Surfside is also named after him.)

Dressed in a suit and tie, Singer was a common sight taking long walks around the neighborhood for decades — up to six miles a day, according to his personal assistant — and The New York Times once called him “the big old man of the Upper West Side”. He was deeply connected to the local community and had a reputation for being a talker, both in Yiddish and in his heavily accented English. He enjoyed going to long-defunct restaurants known for their Jewish cuisine, where he mingled and chatted with other Yiddish-speaking refugees who were flocking to New York at that time. There was The Famous Dairy Restaurant on West 72nd Street, where The New York Times reported in 1991: “He almost always had the $5.50 lunch special of vegetarian minced liver – a mixture of carrots, peas, green beans and onions – and the soup of the day.”

Singer also frequented the American Restaurant, his local cafe, on Broadway and 85th, which had “a faux brick facade and gilded chandeliers” and where he ate “several times a day, enjoying pea soup, potato porridge and rice pudding”. ” There was also Eclair Coffee, a Viennese patisserie and restaurant on Broadway where, according to the Times, Singer often had “an open-faced tuna salad sandwich and a cup of coffee and sometimes a delicacy like borscht with a boiled potato and an extra spoonful of sour cream. “Another of the modest places he frequented was the kosher luncheonette Steinbergs Dairy Restaurant on Broadway between 81st and 82nd Streets (now occupied by The Town Shop). Being a vegetarian, like his literary ancestor, Franz Kafka, Singer was particularly fond of veggie burgers.

Singer made the Upper West Side the setting for some of his stories, such as “The Cafeteria,” published in The New Yorker in 1968. The story’s narrator describes a life almost identical to Singer’s: “I moved around this neighborhood for over thirty years – as long as I’ve lived in Poland. I know every block, every house… and I have the illusion of having taken root here. I have spoken in most synagogues. They know me in some shops and in vegetarian restaurants…even the pigeons know me; the moment I walk out with a bag of food they start flying towards me from blocks away.

His most famous novel set on the Upper West Side is “Shadows on the Hudson”, which a New York Times reviewer called his “masterpiece”. The novel is imbued with a harshness and the kinds of things that turned some Jews against it, like comparing God to a Nazi; themes of amorality and betrayal; Jewish characters who hate each other and say things like “God himself is the worst murderer”. It features an array of wealthy and troubled Jews living on the Upper West Side after World War II, many of whom are portrayed without sympathy – such as the sex and money obsessed stockbroker and the wealthy Orthodox man devoid of compassion.

For this reason, as with fellow Upper West Side Jewish writer Philip Roth, Singer has had his share of detractors who have criticized him for portraying Jews in a dark way in his fiction. Over the years, he has been called a “traitor to the Yiddish tradition”, a “pornographer”, an “anglicizing pimp”, a “dirty old man” and his writings have been called “bad for Jews”.

But he also received wide acclaim and was widely considered a literary genius. He won the National Book Award in 1970, and in 1978 he became the only Yiddish-language writer to win the Nobel Prize for Literature. The Swedish Academy described his “passionate narratives which, rooted in a Polish-Jewish cultural tradition, bring universal human conditions to life.”

A savvy promoter of his work, Singer realized early on that to be a successful American writer he needed to have his writings translated into English. He worked closely with translators on the English versions of his work and came to call English his “original second language”. He always published first in Yiddish, then later he published a more polished, sometimes even different, English version. It started in 1953 when the critic Irving Howe came across Singer’s short story, “Gimpel the Fool.” Recognizing a major new writer, Howe convinced Saul Bellow, who himself lived for a time on the Upper West Side (where he staged his novel “Seize the Day”), to translate it. Howe then sent the translation to an editor at the Partisan Review. Singer had been running from then on, as translations of his work poured in. He has been published regularly in magazines such as The New Yorker, Playboy and Harper’s.

In Singer’s first biography, “The Wizard of West 86th Street,” Paul Kresh poses the question, “What is Isaac Bashevis Singer?” His response, in part: “He is a man of many paradoxes and contradictions, but at the same time a man, like Whitman’s poetic self, large enough to ‘contain multitudes’, reconciled with the war of forces within him. himself and somehow comfortable with himself. ”

He said (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET): “I also come from a fan’s point of view, and I realize and I know – I understand the point of view of people who want the original line-up. I mean, obviously, I understand the history of the band, so I can see that. I prefer the Good Scott time [of AC/DC] compared to [the Brian Johnson] time. And Brian Johnson is not a new singer; it’s been around since 1980. But that’s the way it is.

“That being said, I’ve had people contact me on instagram and apologizing for… At first they were like, ‘Oh, another singer?’ — you know, just the regular comments you used to see,” he explained. “But they actually apologized and pretty much said, ‘I’m sorry I hated you when I discovered it for the first time. But now I just have to say that I love it. I love you. And I was wrong. [Laughs]”

He added: “That’s the ultimate compliment to me, obviously – that you can turn haters into believers and followers. And that makes everything worth it – everything. All the hard work you’ve put in.”

He doesn’t stop so long that he didn’t do it perfectly. Whether it’s his version, what he thinks is right, or what we think is right, he works hard – he works hard. And you can see why he got the success he’s had overseas because he’s a really, really hard-working singer who takes care of his instrument and takes pride in his craft.”

And then I forget who I am. ‘ said, someone who was with us, ‘Yeah, he won ‘Idol’ in Sweden.’ And I was, like, ‘Man, he’s got pipes.’ And I was listening. Then I went behind the dash a few times. And in my head, I’m like, ‘Wow! When SKID RANK has free time, I’m going to get in touch with this guy and start a side project with him. And apparently, that never happened. But over time and we got to the point where we were with pz and other things, Erik was our first…i said Snake, I go, ‘We have to check this guy.’ And with Snake and the rest of the guys, and pseudoour producer, Nick Raskulinecz, were, like, ‘That’s the guy, man. Send him songs. So we sent her songs that we were recording, just with a vocal guide on them, and they came back about 24 hours later, and we were like, ‘Okay. He’s the guy. Get him on a plane.

Lead singer of British reggae band Aswad was 62 – Deadline https://triakel.com/lead-singer-of-british-reggae-band-aswad-was-62-deadline/ Fri, 02 Sep 2022 21:21:00 +0000 https://triakel.com/lead-singer-of-british-reggae-band-aswad-was-62-deadline/

Angus “Drummie Zeb” Gaye, who sang and played drums on “Don’t Turn Around”, “Shine” and other hits by British reggae band Aswad, died on September 2. He was 62 years old.

The band announced his death on their Instagram page but did not provide details. “It is with deep regret and deep loss that we must announce the passing of our brother Angus ‘Drummie’ Gaye,” the message read (see here). “Drummie was much loved and respected by family, friends and peers. [He] left us to join our ancestors and leaves a huge void both personally and professionally.

Gaye and bandmates Tony Robinson and Brinsley Dan Forde met at Holland Park School in London and released a number of singles that hit the UK charts before hitting it big with ‘Don’t Turn Around’ in 1988 (see the video below). The upbeat track written by Albert Hammond and Diane Warren reached No. 1 in Britain and New Zealand and reached the Top 10 in other countries including Ireland, Belgium and the Netherlands, but failed to chart on the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States.

Buoyed by the international success of British reggae band UB40 at the time, the single was taken from Aswad’s 12th album, distant thunder, who reached 10th place in the UK and won gold there. The LP rocked the Billboard 200 in the United States.

Aswad – a proper name meaning “black” in Arabic – followed “Don’t Turn Around” with “Give a Little Love” later in 1988, reaching No. 11 in the UK, and had another Top 10 with “Shine” in 1994. This song also entered the Top 10 in Ireland.

The band released over 20 studio albums from their self-titled debut in 1976 through 2009. A block, 10 of them made the UK charts.

Born September 24, 1959, Gaye has also produced songs for bands such as Swedish band Ace of Base, whose 1994 version of “Don’t Turn Around” became an international hit. Taken from the band’s multi-platinum debut album, the remake charted top 5 in the US and UK and topped the Canadian singles chart. It also reached the Top 10 in several other countries, including Denmark, Germany, Finland, Scotland and Iceland.

Gaye has also produced tracks for Vanessa Mae, Carroll Thompson and others.

Here’s the video for Ace of Base’s version of “Don’t Turn Around”:
