Ronnie Wood UK Art Exhibit

I am very, very excited about Ronnie Wood’s forthcoming art exhibition and have been a follower of his work for a few years now. His work is energetic, confident, and captures the world of music that has been part of his life for so many years beautifully. Intimate, poised, and although has expressionist undertones, Wood definitely carries his own style with an uncompromising grace very much missing from the world of contemporary art today. He knows that art isn’t just simply an idea, that it is within your heart and isn’t simply the ‘shock and awe’ factor, but that he really values the gift he was given.

See below the press release for the exhibition at the Richard Goodall Gallery in the UK later this year.

Fractured Hope
A Short Poem

By Elisabetta Jane Maria Allen

Coldness is insecurity enveloped in a state of uncertainty
In your heart there is knowing
knowing of a tomorrow that will never begin
Twisted in a time of technological domination
you seek to break free
From the harsh times of a fractured globe
manifested by a bastard that is humanity
For all the animal kingdom’s innocence
a day will prevail
When once again they will walk our planet’s terrain
and reclaim their home

Nikki Sixx Artwork and the Impending Release of Autobiographical Novel and Soundtrack The Heroin Diaries

Heroin Diaries CD (at left), book (at right)The release of a new book by Motley Crue‘s bassist and chief songwriter Nikki Sixx called The Heroin Diaries with a CD soundtrack including a song Sixx wrote called “Life is Beautiful” (available as a download to accompany the book) marks a positive return and a new chapter in the life of one of the world’s most celebrated and infamous rock stars. When Sixx entered the studio to record with close friends DJ Ashba and James Michael, they took inspiration from the chapters from the book and created the book’s soundtrack, and in turn became the band SIXX: AM.

Visit the official SIXX: AM site to listen to the single (with accompanying lyrics) or watch the video for “Life is Beautiful.” The song and video can also be downloaded from the official Heroin Diaries site, which contains a photo gallery, press release, and excerpts from the book, along with several videos of behind-the-scenes footage and clips from the press conference and SIXX: AM world premiere concert performance (which can also be downloaded).

Music Review: Juliette and the Licks ‘Four on the Floor’

Four on the FloorJULIETTE AND THE LICKS
Four on the Floor
Hassle

Before we had Juliette Lewis: Rock Star, we had Juliette Lewis: Movie Star. Juliette Lewis is an Oscar-nominated superstar that picked eclectic film roles that best suited her female-Jack-Nicholson-incarnate persona. It makes sense that she would then go on to make music that goes straight for the gonads, boys.

Yeah, girls can rock hard, too.

Juliette moonlighted in The Prodigy for a while, singing vocals on “Hot Ride” on the Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned album, which seems like the precursor to Four on the Floor, the new album release.

In 2004, Juliette and the Licks released Like a Bolt of Lightning EP with the follow-up Linda Perry-produced debut album You’re Speaking My Language. In Juliette’s own words [in a Classic Rock Mag interview] however: “We produced that first album ourselves, so it’s a bit unfocused. Working with a real producer [Dylan MCLaren] helped us realize our sound. Our songwriting has improved so much, and having Dave [Grohl] with us added this entire new fucking engine. It’s a real rock record from start to finish.”

So now we have the latest release Four On The Floor out on the July 24, 2007 in the U.S. The UK has had the album for a while because Britain and Europe are the testing grounds for this nuclear explosion of talent. Considering Lewis is more well-known in the U.S., the support from the UK and Europe has obviously been enough to act as the springboard for the assault on the U.S.

The Phenomena of Light in Contemporary Hollywood Cinema: ‘Close Encounters of the Third Kind’
space

close encountersAll film directors employ light — natural, artificial, and reflected — not simply to illuminate but to add to the desired mood of the scene or to provide another supernatural dimension.

For example, use of light in Close Encounters of the Third Kind (directed by Steven Spielberg in 1977), provides a means of communication among characters, audience, and the dubious presence, good or evil. It also acted as a way of heightening the cinematic experience by disguising where the source of the light was actually coming from, that it was acting on behalf of the being(s).

I have always loved what I call “God Light” shafts coming out of the sky, or out of a spaceship or out of a doorway. It’s just been very romantic and extremely wondrous to me, light. — Steven Spielberg
