Dernière de "Plus Près de Toi" @ Radio Nova - June 29th, 2018

C'est la der de Baer ce matin à Radio Nova. Une émission très drôle (j'ai encore mal à la mâchoire, la faute à cet échange entre Édouard et Alain Chabat) et avec en invité surprise Alain Souchon accompagné de son fils qui nous chantent Foule Sentimentale et La Vie ne vaut Rien. Superbe.

And now both Abbott brothers have crossed the Cemetery Gates...

Guns N' Roses @ Download Paris - June 18th, 2018

Holy shit guys! Did you know Slash and Duff are back in Guns N' Roses? For real! You remember Guns N' Roses? They were huge in the early nineties. Like, Michael Jackson huge! Remember their singer? Well, he still wears a bandana. He keeps his shirt on nowadays, thankfully. But they still sing all those cool songs we liked as kids, as well as a bunch of other classic rock songs. Plus a bunch of stuff no one knows, but they sound cool! Anyway, I just saw them last night and it was good. A little long, because all the musicians like to play a lot of notes that don't amount to a song (not that I've heard on the radio at least) but still, it was just like 1992.

Ozzy Osbourne @ Download Paris - June 15th, 2018

Yesterday was the first day of the Download Paris 2018. It's actually pretty far out of Paris but quite easy to get to thanks to an uncharacteristically efficient organisation.

Opeth @ Download Paris - June 15th, 2018

Opeth is a great band and their records are at once increasingly challenging and satisfying. They were never just another black metal band, and it's obvious with their more progressive recent outputs which have discarded the growling vocals altogether.

Jeff Beck @ Olympia, Paris - June 9th, 2018

My seventh time seeing Jeff Beck*, and I just can't get enough. Somehow, even when I know to expect the unexpected, he still manages to surprise me. Whether he plays blues, rock n' roll, soul, jazz, hard rock, electronica or even classical pieces the man can do no wrong (yes, I even enjoy his Flash album from the eighties!)...

John Parr @ Olympia, Paris - June 9th, 2018

I was sitting front row at the famous Olympia, waiting to see Jeff Beck for the seventh time when I overheard someone  from the crew say there was a support act called John Parr. Surely I must've misunderstood. Surely it couldn't possibly be THAT John Parr from my childhood.
