The Pretty Reckless team up with Soundgarden’s Kim Thayil and Matt Cameron for new video “Only Love Can Save Me Now”

The Pretty Reckless have released their new video for the single Only Love Can Save Me Now, taken from their latest album Death By Rock And Roll.  Soundgarden legends Kim Thayil and Matt Cameron join the band on the song and appear in the video.

Said Kim: ​It was super fun to spend time in the studio with Taylor, Ben, and Matt, and to have the opportunity to contribute to this The Pretty Reckless song.  Only Love Can Save Me Now has elements of classic Soundgarden and the riff would probably be at home on Louder Than Love. These are great guitar parts that Ben came up with. They lay down a heavy foundation that allows the entire song to open up with Taylor’s powerful and haunting vocals. Cheers, and thanks to The Pretty Reckless for inviting Matt and me to play on this track!”  Matt added: ​Kim and I had a blast recording with Taylor and The Pretty Reckless on their new single Only Love Can Save Me Now, a fantastic rock track that sounds amazing at full volume. Many thanks to the band for inviting us to play on their new album Death By Rock And Roll.”

The Pretty Reckless’ Taylor Momsen said: It’s hard to describe the feeling around our song Only Love Can Save Me Now. The song was born out of tragedy and brought to life by two of my favorite musicians of all time, Matt Cameron and Kim Thayil. Hearing them play it is simply surreal. This song represents getting through the worst time in my life, and yet, is one of my proudest achievements. It means that there is hope, and that life has to go on, and most importantly, is worth living.”

Aerosmith guitarist Brad Whitford ‘doubts’ the band will play live again

Aerosmith guitarist Brad Whitford shared that he ‘doubts’ that the legendary band will ever perform live again, saying in part that his and his bandmembers ages are becoming a “real factor”. Whitford made the comments during an appearance on Joe Bonamassa’s streaming interview series “Live From Nerdville” after Joe asked Brad about the band’s planned European tour.

Said Whitford: “The European tour, they tried to plan one last year, and they’re talking about next year. It’s a pipe dream right now. Nothing’s gonna happen for a long time. Sometimes I’m not sure what my partners are thinking when they think that’s gonna happen. There’s another interesting thing about going to Europe now because of Brexit, it’s so much harder to get work visas because of that. That’s gonna be a whole other nightmare. I mean, I have my doubts about Aerosmith ever really performing again at this stage, because age is becoming a real factor. And it is what it is.”
