Thanks for the link. I really enjoyed that! Brian sounds awesome -- he should record in that studio some more. And the Dappy version of WWRY was enjoyable. He did something different with it, which is good to hear.

Very good, especially considering the artist Brian chose to work with. Keep on rocking, Doctor Bri!

Cheers,

I don't really know what to say about this. The intro was nice, Dappy seemed genuinely in awe. Then the song started. Didn't bother with Rock Star is it is not something I would like to hear again.

"Better not be Jeff Beck!".  Ha ha.  I'm still at work at 7:40 and listening to Brian is officially the best thing that's happened to me since I should have gone home 3 hours ago. I've given Rockstar 3 or 4 tries in a couple of different forms and it's just not my thing.  But I'd put that version of WWRY on my iPod. Dappy's work was good enough and not dull - and dull would have been easy to do for a rapper on a song that's permeated the culture to the degree that WWRY has.   Brian sounded great.  I don't know Dappy or his work very well but it feels like there is a real musician in there even if that musicianship is usually directed at stuff I can't get into.  Same reason I can respect Gaga and not like all of what she does.

Well... all in all it was like hearing the verses from Def Leppard (aghh... [[[[cringes at mention of that name]]]]])

...like...

that band's "POUR SOME SUGAR ON ME"

so i wouldn't exactly call it new.

Thought i'd post the video of it

I thought Dappy was much better then I would have given him credit for

I found this comment humorous however

Dappy at 1:54:

"I told you I could sing."

If you have to state it, you probably can't do it. It was fine, but as everything Queen and Brian do these days, rather pointless. Is there anyone in the civilized world who hasn't heard WWRY and is there anyone who has been longing for Brian and Dappy to do it?

Or was longing for Freddie and Monserrat, that's just a lame point to be negative sheer brass neck.

It was interesting. Good except for the talking on Brian's solo...

No it wasn't a lame point Senna. No trouble with Brian working with anyone, and good on him reaching a bit for a new artist. I do find it funny that he said it, as the point is, obviously people have said to him that he can't sing. It's like the guys singing about how much money they have, how big their dicks are, how fine their rides are. You don't hear Monserrat saying that she can sing, or Brian crowing about his guitar playing. It's a genre thing that cracks me up. Still don't see the need for the 100th celebrity go at WWRY though.

HOLY FUCKING SHIT!!!!

NOBODY TOLD ME SATCH WAS SICK!!...what happened to the guy???

omg, poor man... he looks so freaking small these days.




Agghhh.... Sending my prayers to Joe Satriani.... i had no idea he had such massive health issues.



poor guy. Can't even pick up his guitar. His voice is all hoarse....and he sounds demented.


Brian is really in a class of his own to give the man some star time. What a true friend.

God Bless you, Brian!!!!
