Former Police drummer Stewart Copeland is known to host some epic jams at his Super Grove studio, but a recent session might come close to topping them all.
In a video posted Monday, Copeland is joined by Rush drummer Neil Peart, Tooldrummer Danny Carey, South Park co-creator Matt Stone and Vertical Horizonfrontman Matt Scannell, all working together on a jazzy track called “A Little More Noise.”
The clip kicks off with Pert asking his co-conspirators if they’d like to make “a little more noise” and then Pert and Carey launch into the rhythms, eventually filled in by Copeland on guitar, Scannell on bass, Stone on percussion and Pert’s words echoing in the background.
On the video’s YouTube page, Copeland explains that a few days later more musicians came by to fill in horns and eventually the piano came as an afterthought.
Jon Bon Jovi is working on new music. The Bon Jovi frontman has revealed that he has about “a dozen” songs in the works for the new project, according to People magazine.
Bon Jovi shared the news during Fashion Week while he was curating a show at the Kenneth Cole clothing store in the Soho section of Manhattan. He added that he had been in the studio “all day working on the new record.”
“I walked here from the studio,” he said.
The singer added that the new music he’s working on has been inspired by events in the news. “I just read the paper, it gives you an opportunity to write something,” he explained. “It’s early but I’m about a dozen songs in. I feel good.”
