Voldar: . About Robert Scovill I am a 30 year veteran of live sound and 6 time TEC Award winner for Sound Reinforcement Engineer. I serve as Senior Market Specialist for live sound for Avid and am currently mixing front of house sound for the 2010 Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers North American Tour. Tom Petty, VENUE Technology and The Future of The Concert Experience Venue owners; (Not VENUE owners) if youre listening, PLEASE dedicate some resources to upgrading and maintaining these systems. The fans will thank you and they might even come to the shows a little more often. Dont believe me? Here is an excerpt from a post on a popular live sound chat site regarding the lawn experience during the current Petty tour. I have to say, I needed that show to sound good. I have been to so many big shows that were very disappointing sound-wise. I swore off big sheds a LONG time ago The mix was just so right for TP, and the venue There seemed to be studio like separation in the mix, but yet it all blended just right. We take audio very seriously in Tom Petty land for every show and Im shocked at how many local venue techs have told us that rarely does a visiting engineer even go out to listen to the lawn during the day to evaluate it let alone adjust it. Its kind of like we say at Avid regarding the world of VENUE technology great sound quality is not a feature it comes with every console. It should come with every show too But I digress If you consider the shear quantity and quality of the technology combined with the personnel that comes with it for even a relatively modest tour such as Tom Petty, Im shocked that ticket prices are not even higher. In Toms case its a testimonial to his loyalty to his fans along with the fact that hes been an advocate for keeping prices under control for his entire career. I think his fans are in many ways rewarding him for it this summer. From my perspective, and his fans apparently, his value add appears to be quality and consistency and at a pretty appetizing ticket price. : http://community.avid.com/blogs/avid/archive/2010/08/24/tom-petty-venue-technology-and-the-future-of-the-concert-experience.aspx

Jagger, Dylan to join rising stars at Grammys LOS ANGELES Legendary rocker Mick Jagger, folk icon Bob Dylan and veteran diva Barbra Streisand will join rising stars and seasoned chart-toppers Sunday at the music industry's annual Grammys awards bash. Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and teen sensation Justin Bieber are also on a star-studded roster of performers at the show in Los Angeles, where rapper Eminem hopes to seal a comeback year with a brace of awards. While showcasing new talent, the glittering evening will also pay tribute to past greats including "The King of Rock 'N Soul" Solomon Burke, who died last year, and ailing soul legend Aretha Franklin. Christina Aguilera, Jennifer Hudson and Florence and the Machine singer Florence Welch will stage a combined "Valentine's" and "get-well" tribute for Franklin, recovering from reported cancer surgery. "The special segment will feature individual and collective performances of some of the Queen of Soul's classic hits," said the organizers ahead of the three-and-a-half hour 53rd Grammys show at the Staples Center in downtown LA. Dylan, appearing at the Grammys for his fifth time, will perform with country-tinged Brits Mumford and Son and folk-rock band the Avett Brothers in a special salute to acoustic music, organizers said. In other new announcements Thursday three days before the show, they said rapper Dr. Dre will appear, in his first live television performance for more than a decade. The Grammys are the music industry's equivalent of the Oscars, the climax of Hollywood's annual awards season that this year takes place in barely two weeks' time, on February 27. Front-runners for Grammys glory include Eminem, nominated in 10 categories including best album and best song, in what could cap a comeback year for the once-troubled rap star. The singer -- real name Marshall Bruce Mathers III -- dropped out of music-making in the middle of the past decade as he battled with drug problems. He returned with the album "Relapse" in 2009, before 2010's "Recovery." Hawaiian-born singer Bruno Mars came second to Eminem with seven nominations including Best Male Pop Vocal, while US rap megastar Jay-Z, Nashville-born country trio Lady Antebellum and Lady Gaga each earned six nods. Perry is also in the running for Best Album along with Lady Gaga, Arcade Fire and Lady Antebellum. Best New Artist nominees were Canadian teen idol Bieber, quirky British singer Florence Welch, country-tinged Brits Mumford and Son, as well as Drake and Esperanza Spalding. But while much media attention will focus on the rising stars, older viewers may tune in to see if Jagger and Streisand can show the young ones how to strut their stuff. Here are the nominations in the main categories: - Record of the Year: "Nothin' on You" by B.o.B with Bruno Mars; "Love the Way you Lie" by Eminem featuring Rihanna; "Fuck You!" by Cee Lo Green; "Empire State of Mind" by Jay-Z and Alicia Keys; and "Need You Now" by Lady Antebellum. - Best Album: "The Fame Monster" by Lady Gaga; "Recovery" by Eminem; "The Suburbs" by Arcade Fire; "Need You Now" by Lady Antebellum; and "Teenage Dream" by Katy Perry. - Best Rock Album: "Emotion & Commotion" by Jeff Beck; "The Resistance" by Muse; "Backspacer" by Pearl Jam; "Mojo" by Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers, and "Le Noise" by aging folk rocker Neil Young. - Best Female Pop Vocal: "King of Anything" by Sara Bareilles; "Halo" by Beyonce; "Chasing Pirates" by Norah Jones; "Bad Romance" by Lady Gaga; and "Teenage Dream" by Katy Perry. - Best Male Pop Vocal: "Haven't Met you Yet" by Michael Buble; "This is It" by Michael Jackson; "Whataya Want from Me?" by Adam Lambert; "Just the way You Are" by Bruno Mars, and "Half of My Heart" by John Mayer. http://www.abs-cbnnews.com/entertainment/02/10/11/jagger-dylan-join-rising-stars-grammys

Voldar: This Day in Music Spotlight: The Heartbreaking Loss of Howie Epstein Although Howie Epstein wasnt one of the founding members of Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers, he quickly became an integral part of the band after joining in the early 80s. The bassist was present for Pettys most commercially successful period, playing both on full band releases and on the singers solo records. Keyboardist Benmont Tench called Howie the coolest guy in the band. Epstein was born on July 21, 1955 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He began playing musical instruments at a young age, growing up under the influence of his father Sam, who was a record producer. Sam produced some of the Midwests top rock and soul groups in the 50s and 60s. As a result, Howie became entrenched in Milwaukees music community, getting to know the local acts and going with his dad to shows. As he got older, Howie convinced Sam to let some of those groups serve as backing bands on his own recordings. In his teenage years and twenties, Epstein was involved in a number of rock and country bands in Milwaukee, most often playing rhythm guitar or mandolin and singing. Tiring of the limitations of the Wisconsin music scene, Howie set off for Los Angeles in the late 70s to play bass in a band that singer-songwriter John Hiatt was putting together. He toured and recorded with Hiatt, playing on his albums Slug Line and Two Bit Monsters. Howie soon joined Del Shannons backing band, a move that would lead directly to him becoming a full-time Heartbreaker. A huge Shannon fan, Petty was producing an album for the singer (titled Drop Down and Get Me) and Howie was playing on the sessions. Petty was highly impressed with Epsteins musicianship. The bassist soon would see exactly how impressed Tom was. By 1982, the Heartbreakers founding bass player Ron Blair had had enough. Tired of the touring grind, Blair departed the band, leaving a vacancy for Epstein. Bringing Howie into the fold wasnt a surprise move, as far as the other Heartbreakers were concerned. We all kind of thought Howie would get the job, drummer Stan Lynch said. He seemed to have a real good feeling for what we were doing. Hes a good bass player, a real good singer, and he fit in real well. By all accounts, the transition was seamless. Howie helped the band record 1982s Long After Dark, bringing his strong backing vocals and steady bass playing to the album. I had a tendency to play real busy, from all the years of playing rhythm guitar, Epstein said about his playing. His style was simplicity, playing in the pocket, getting into a steady groove. Ive always considered myself a good team player and thats the way that the Heartbreakers operate. Everyone listens to what everyone else is doing musically. He would tour with the band for the next couple of decades and become a well-known and respected member of an already established rock band. After Howie had been in the band for about eight years, Petty sung his praises to Musician magazine: You gotta love him; I dont know if I ever tell him how good he is. Tonight, there was a line early in the show I could just barely sing. I was having to work harder than I normally do to make it, I was getting really close on the mike. I was thinking, Oh boy, I hope I can do this... I got to it and I heard Howie singing it with me over his mike. It sounded great, it sounded like a double track. I just looked at him, he caught my eye like Yeah! It made me feel great, cause I know he was thinking the same thing, I know hes tired, Ill cover him wham! Got it! Thats what a great bands all about. Thats what its all about. By becoming such an important part, Howie became an in-demand recording musician, playing on albums by legends such as Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison and others. He also began to work as a producer, starting with Carlene Carters 1990 album, I Fell in Love. In fact, Howie had fallen in love with Carter and the pair had begun a relationship that would culminate in a proposal, but never marriage. Around the same time, Epstein produced a pair of studio albums for songwriting great John Prine, including The Missing Years, which won a Grammy for Best Contemporary Folk Recording. A fair share of Heartbreakers also showed up to play on Prines albums. Although Howie kept up his work with Petty and the boys through the 90s, some of the excesses of the rock and roll lifestyle began to catch up with him. He was just degenerating on us to the point where we thought keeping Howie in the band was actually doing him more harm than getting rid of him. His personal problems were vast and serious, Petty would later say. We tried everything we could to reach him but it got to the point where his ability to do gigs was diminishing. By 2002, Petty replaced Epstein with the same bassist Howie had replaced 20 years earlier Ron Blair. Eventually, we realized that we were just contributing to the problem, Petty said. When youre living a life where you really don't have any responsibilities, its easy for evil forces to take over. Then, in February of 03, Epstein passed out in his bathroom, possibly due to a mix of drugs that included heroin and antibiotics he had been taking for stomach problems and an abscess on his leg. His girlfriend drove him to the hospital, where he died from drug-related complications on this day in 2003. He was 47. Epsteins remains were returned to Wisconsin, where they were interred at Second Home Cemetery in Greenfield. Upon hearing the tragic news, one-time fiancée Carter was despondent. Im devastated, she said. I loved him very much. My kids thought of Howie as their father. Petty shared his grief over his bandmates death in a piece for Rolling Stone: Theres a great sadness, because Howie was never not a Heartbreaker. He just got to where he couldnt do it anymore... Its like you got a tree dying in the backyard. And youre kind of used to the idea that its dying. But you look out there one day and they cut it down. And you just cant imagine that beautiful tree isnt there anymore. To this day, when Petty and The Heartbreakers tour, they keep a bass guitar on a stand on stage to honor the memory of their late comrade. http://www.gibson.com/en-us/Lifestyle/Features/spotlight-0223-2011/
