The one undoubtedly awesome thing about Torrents is all of the Multi-Track sessions that are getting leaked on the web. This enables everyone to see some of the techniques the masters used and just how good they really were. One of the most impressive ones I have seen is the leak of some Stevie Wonder tracks. Here this YouTuber shows the insane complexity of the Clavinet track in “Superstitious”, as well as some of the drum and vocal tricks. Enjoy!
As we all know, the death of print is upon us! The paper Seattle Weekly decided one way to help stay afloat would be hiring some
celebrity bloggers. Not the worst idea, though they did get the result many
would expect: a musician is better heard then read. One hire has caught my eye, ex-Guns N Roses bassist Duff McKagan. During Duff’s brief time at
this paper he has managed to prove that he is little more than your stereotypical aged rockstar. The part he has cast himself is the reformed rocker who has gotten sober and
discovered the joys of rock climbing. In his blog attempts to expose the rest
of the world, who experienced all of this years before “The Botox Years(AKA Velvet Revolvers formation)” as if they are some mind blowing revelations no
one has ever experienced before. The poor, little, punk rock Irish man doesn’t
understand most people tried out things like sobriety and exercise while he was
busy getting drunk, doing ludes with Pauly Shore and playing in really
intellectual bands like The Fartz.
