Track Of The Day: Extreme
Boston greats Extreme are back with a live album, showcasing all their finest moments. One of these provides the latest Track Of The Day. Check out all the Tracks Of The Day.
Extreme started in 1985, signing to A&M three years later. It was second album, Extreme II: Pornograffitti, that gave the band their big breakthrough thanks to hit singles such as More Than Words and Get The Funk Out. This was augmented by an appearance at the Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert in 1992, at Wembley Stadium.
The next year, Extreme released III Sides To Every Story, which cemented their position as one of the biggest bands in the world, But, after appearing at the Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1994, things began to slide and Extreme split up in 1996.
After one or two flirtations with the idea of a reunion, the band got back together in ’06, although drummer Paul Geary quickly decided he’d rather manage the band than play. So Kevin Figueiredo took over, joining vocalist Gary Cherone, guitarist Nuno Bettencourt and bassist Pat Badger.
In 2008 they released new studio album Saudades De Rock, backing it up with the Take Us Alive World Tour, which finished at the House Of Blues in Boston on August 8 last year. And it’s this show that’s captured on the Take Us Alive DVD/double CD. This is released on April 26 by Frontiers.
