Milow stürmt in die Deutschen Single Charts

Milow | stürmt in die Deutschen Single Charts
Milow, stürmt in die Deutschen Single Charts


Mit seiner neuen Single „You and Me (In My Pocket)“ gelingt dem belgischen Musiker Jonathan Vandenbroeck alias Milow erneut ein fulminanter Einstieg in die offiziellen Media Control Singlecharts: „You and Me“ steigt sofort auf Platz 3 ein. Auch in den Deutschen Airplaycharts ist der Song auf direktem Weg nach ganz oben, derzeit auf Platz 4 ist der Titel einer der meistgespielten in der deutschen Radiolandschaft.
Milow schenkte uns bereits die geniale Coverversion des 50 Cent Hits „Ayo Technology“, danach den Riesenhit „You Don`t Know“ und setzt nun seine Erfolgsgeschichte mit der neuen Single auf eindrucksvolle Weise fort. Diesen Freitag (01.04.2011) erscheint das lang ersehnte neue Album „North and South“.
Innerhalb kürzester Zeit hat es der Belgier geschafft, sich eine große Fangemeinde zu erspielen. Er hat in den letzten Jahren mehr als 1,8 Millionen Tonträger verkauft, spielte über 300 Liveshows in 20 Ländern und wurde mit Preisen, wie dem Music Industry Award und dem European Border Breaker Award ausgezeichnet.
Jeder der 11 Songs des neuen Albums ist eine Perle, jeder Text eine Geschichte, die uns anrührt. Eine, die von Widersprüchen handelt und von uns allen. Milow erzählt über das Verhältnis zu seinem Vater im Titel „Son“ oder über die Schwierigkeit einer ganzen Generation Mitten im Leben stehender Menschen aus der Vielfalt von Möglichkeiten und Entscheidungen, die richtige Wahl zu treffen im Titel „Little In The Middle“. In „Move to Town“ greift er das Albumthema „North and South“ auf, hier im Vergleich die Kleinstadt mit der Metropole.
Und es sind Songs über Milow selbst. Persönlicher als auf „North and South“ geht es nicht. Tiefer ging Milow noch nie. Der Mann hat auch künstlerisch einen weiten Weg gemacht.

Interview with Due West

Interview with Due West

CL: I’m Christian Lamitschka and today I present you Due West. Welcome to the show you guys.

DW: Thank you. Glad to be here and thanks for having us.

CL: Could you please introduce yourself and our viewers who might be hearing of you for the first time.

DW: I’m Tim Gates from Utah; I’m Matt Lopez from Wyoming; I’m Brad Hull from Arizona.

CL: You guys have a new album “Forget The Miles” on the market. Folks who have an idea about what we are talking about that’s the album you can buy everywhere, on Amazon, on your website and wherever you find the store. Let’s talk about the music. What kind of music is on the album?

DW: Country music! Five of the six songs we all wrote together or separately and they are song that been really important to us. We finally get to put them out on a CD. We’re a three-part harmony, like Alabama, Diamond Rio, and so on.

CL: Let’s see if you all three have the same personal favorite on the album.

DW: (Brad) My personal favorite is the new single, which is “When The Smoke Clears”. I love that song, it’s got a haunting melody and a beautiful production and the harmonies are really cool on that song. It has a great message.

CL: What’s the story behind it?

DW: The song is about somebody is faced with an opportunity to make a bad decision and it kind of goes thru what can happen if that bad decision was made. It was written by Mat Lopez here and his friend Don Rollins; it’s just a beautiful piece.

CL: What is yours, the same one or another?

DW: (Tim) Mine is probably “Country Music Made A Man Out Of Me”, it’s probably one of the most cleverly written songs in Nashville. A friend of mine over here, Tim Gates Wrote it and if you listen to that song, it’s got 21 classic country titles that are all used as a sentence. It’s telling a story using those titles about how country made a man out of him.

CL: Wow, yes, and yours?

DW: (Matt) I’m a man too, (laughing) because of country music. I would say “When The Smoke Clears” is also my favorite too, exactly what Brad says, it has a good message, it’s a Waltz, a country song and it’s heavy.

CL: What can country fans expect to see if they see one of your shows.

DW: High energy, lots of interaction with the crowd; we like to involve everybody and we all have big party and a good time and relate to our fans. Make them feel comfortable. We always feel if performers are comfortable on stage, the audience is comfortable. If performers are nervous, shaky, it makes everybody feel nervous and shaky.

CL: So probably all country fans like to know, are you still available, or have a girlfriend or anything?

DW: (Brad) I just got married last week as a matter of fact.

Steel Guitar Tips

Hello fellow players,

I just saw a topic on the steel guitar forum that makes me want to scream in anger, then throw away my steel guitar with a can of gasoline and a match.  It�s about some popular steel guitar player that is well known for rocking his steel around and doing a lot of childish moves in the name of show biz.  

I say childish because it�s the children that see him play that are going to be impressed.  They�ll be impressed until they go to take lessons and their teacher doesn�t teach them how to do all these childish moves when they play for their parents.  Yes.  Rusty Young, years ago, would lay on his back and kick his guitar over and kick at it with his feet letting it feedback violently in front of his Marshall amps.  But Rusty did this tongue in cheek, doing it just to be funny.

Robert Randolph is into a certain amount of show biz.  This is obviously to satisfy the immature non-musical patrons in the audience and not people that paid money to hear good steel guitar.  Don�t get me wrong, I�m definitely not against a certain amount of show biz to help sell your playing.  Nice stage wear, smiling at the audience once in awhile and acting like you�re having a good time will not detract from the good things you�re playing.

Unfortunately, there are many very questionable players that are getting paid to act like a steel guitar player on the stage while they are rocking their guitars back and forth and trying to make up with show biz for what they don�t have in musical knowledge.  

I have hundreds of steel players a month, or let�s call them steel guitar owners that come through my store telling me what big star they are working with and they have a rough time sitting behind a guitar in the showroom and getting anything out of it.  Now they aren�t players, but however they are taking a real steel players job because of acting immature on the stage behind a steel guitar.

Should you be jealous because these clowns are making $50,000 a year while you�re playing much better and making much less?  It depends on which you�d rather be.  Do you want to be an actor?  Or do you want to be a good musician?

I know that when I go to hear a steel guitar play or I see one on television, I�m very disappointed if he jumps over his guitar backwards and makes everybody laugh but still can�t play it.  In the end, the show biz guy will get very little respect from anyone except possibly a non-musician.  He may be lucky by jumping around and being a steel guitar clown for awhile, but he�s not going to be hired by a serious band that wants him for his musicianship.  

Unfortunately, most band leaders that hire, barely know the difference between a good steel player or a clown.  I don�t care how much a steel guitar job pays, if I have to be a clown to make big bucks to work in it, sorry, but I�ll open a steel guitar store.  Wait a minute.  I�ve already done that.

Every once in awhile I have somebody say, �Boy.  You ought to see that guy play with such and such a band.�

My reply is always, �I don�t wanna see any steel guitar player play as bad as I want to HEAR him play.�  If we as steel guitar players encourage this childish stupidity and keep telling them it�s show biz, we�ll have nobody but ourselves to blame when all the great steel players have gone and we have nothing left but great show biz rock n roll style noise makers with their fuzz and smoke machine.

If it�s just money you want to make as a steel guitarist and money only, I still don�t know if this is a good way to go because there are many other ways to make money without embarrassing yourself in front of guys that can really play the instrument.

Doug Jernigan, Jerry Byrd, Jimmy Day, Curly Chalker and many other great players will impress me forever much more than any show biz guy ever will.  These are great players that sit down and concentrate on what they�re doing.  Their show biz is in their fingers and if their listeners know anything about music, they will appreciate the great player by what he plays, not what tricks he does to try to convince you he�s the player that he isn�t.

Sure, Buddy Emmons can bounce the bar off the strings and catch it behind his back in the middle of a great solo without missing a note and yes, I do think it�s cool, but to see him do it through the whole song would end up boring me to tears.

Remember another thing.  We�re not getting paid by the note as steel players, we�re getting paid for the beauty of the notes we play and the great taste on how those notes fit in the song we�re playing.

Don�t you just hate it when somebody comes up and twists the tuning key on your guitar and won�t tell you which one they turned?  But then, if you�re just a show biz guy it won�t even matter.  Let�s remember the really great steel guitar players and give them credit for their great playing.

After all, you can�t see their shenanigans on record, you can only hear their playing.  Remember who they work for has nothing to do with how good they play.  Some people think just because you�re playing with famous singer so and so, that you have to be a good player, but let me tell you, this is not true.  

There are some pretty famous bands that have steel players that can�t play Three Blind Mice.  Like I�ve mentioned before, there are people that have never played steel guitar in their lives that get a job with a big star, then come in my store and buy a steel guitar, run home and try to copy the licks that are on the record because their tour starts in a week.

Believe me friends, I�m not kidding you here.  Sure, there are some great players on the road, but you need to realize that there are many players on the road that got their job some other way than being able to play.  If you say, well after all, he must be a great player because he got such and such a job, I�m sorry but this is not true.

As a matter of fact, it is very well known that the greatest players in the world are not working the road.  Doug Jernigan, Lloyd Green, Buddy Emmons, Johnny Sibert, Joe Mack Vincent, Weldon Myrick and so on.  Their playing is a little too important to waste on the road being criticized for not jumping around and being steel guitar clowns.

Before you pros that read this letter get mad at me, I will say here and make perfectly clear that there are some wonderful players playing the road like CJ Udeen, Tyler Hall, Eddie Dunlap, Steve Hinson and of course the great Texas players like Bobby Flores, Rick Price, Dicky Overby and then of course, we have the gigantic talent of Maurice Anderson, but these guys concentrate on their craft and not bounce off the walls and jump up and down in the strobe lights while they�re playing.

So learn to play you�re steel guitar well and don�t worry about being a country music clown.  Let your fingers do the show biz, you�ll have a much longer career with more respect by doing it.
