Let's appreciate this very unique band.
Saw Terry Bozio with Jeff Beck back in the '80s. Phenomenal drummer.
and dales choice in tops!
Mr. Bozio lives, or lived here.
I saw him do a drum clinic at the Northcross Mall GC several years ago.
Extremely good musicians. Weren't two of those guys from Frank Zappa's band?
I love that guitarist's tone and weird approach. It stands out as unique and I've never heard it anywhere else.
Pretty trippy doubleneck.
Don’t forget this gem
did it in an old back in the 1980’s
This was during my Metal phase, But I always made exceptions for Berlin and Missing Persons.
Saw them both in concert.... Both were fantastic.
Solid songwriting and Terry Bozzio’s tight, aggressive drumming made that band.
they were so much better than this
this is why van halen ruled
Had the biggest crush on Dale Bazzio back then....
I saw Bozzio play with U.K., they were opening for Jethro Tull.
The lineup was Eddie Jobson, John Wetton, and Terry Bozzio. Bozzio had replaced Bill Bruford, and unfortunately the tour was without a guitarist as Alan Holdsworth had left the band.
I mixed a Missing Persons show in the late 1990s, long past their sell-by date. I don't know if there were any original members apart from Dale Bozzio. Certainly there was no Terry B. or Warren C.
Anyway they were very good, and Dale Bozzio was a total sweetheart, she couldn't have been nicer.
I saw Frank Zappa and the Mothers circa ~1975 with Terry Bozzio on drums, he was killin' it.
I love MP, but eclectic? More like quintessential...
I'm watching a live video of them. That guitarist is holding an e-bow much of the time, and has a very interesting tone. The entire band seems like perfectionism.
That Spring Session M album is fantastic. When I think of 80's New Wave, that's a high mark. Still gets play on my ipod.
A friend of mine was doing Dale's hair in the 90's. I think she was living nearby back then.
I went to high school with bass player Patrick O'Hearn. He attended a jam session as a flute-playing junior, but wasn't able to follow my cues to jump in. Definitely a lesson for many of us.
I played in a jazz group with pianist Arletta O'Hearn, Patrick's mother.
I'm a little surprised by his turn to ambient-sounding records. I hear very little of the jazz player that he used to be. Maybe still is, but I haven't anything recent.
Actually three of them were part of Zappa's band. Bozzio on drums, O'hearn on bass, Cuccurullo on guitar.
It would take a whole day just to set up Terry’s kit.
Actually, you'd be wrong because Warren Cuccurullo showed up in a band which was much more famous after Missing Persons broke up. Taking his signature tone and feel to that particular band.
But let me start with the beginning.
This is British guitarist Andy Taylor who was one of the founding members of Duran Duran. He was there when the band achieved their biggest successes but he also was the one who very vocally let his band mates know that he wanted the band to be less pop and more rocking.
In 1985, Duran Duran were in a good place, the band had just played Live Aid and the band was ready to start recording the album which eventually became "Notorious" when their drummer Roger Taylor told the band he was leaving, citing exhaustion as his main reason. So producer Nile Rodgers brought in hired gun drummer Steve Ferrone to do all the drum tracks.
Between recording sessions Andy went to a show of Missing persons, who as it stood were also breaking up and was telling the band about how he had no desire of joining his band mates on the sessions of the new album. At which Warren got a glint in his eye and apparently thinking "So your place in Duran Duran is up for grabs eh?" and the following day phoned up the band's management and offered his services as a recording and touring guitarist, needless to say, they accepted.
Duran Duran during the "Notorious" era, Warren's stamp on the band is enormous.
Warren joining the band was a huge part in the subsequent success the band had with albums such as "Notorious" and "Big thing" and hit singles such as "Notorious", "Skin trade", "I don't want your love" and "Do you believe in shame?" But at the advent of the nineties with Grunge taking over, their album "Liberty" failed, but Duran Duran weren't done yet, they did a spectacular come back with "The wedding album" and their hit "Ordinary world"
"American Science" the only song from the "Notorious" album which has both Andy (the first solo) and Warren (The second solo) play, the difference in sound is very striking and instant.
"White lines" listen to Warren just shredding away.
