Win Nuno Bettencourt’s Guitar
We’ve got a Nuno (Extreme) Bettencourt Washburn N2 guitar worth £400 to give away!
To date, the Grammy-nominated Extreme have released five albums, plus a greatest hits set – selling over 10 million records worldwide.
Extreme also achieved a No.1 hit single, More Than Words, from their 1990 multi-platinum album Extreme II: Pornograffitti, on the Billboard Hot 100. Follow-up single Hole Hearted made the Top Five.
Although these two acoustic hits brought the band great mainstream success, the band’s trademark sound has always been more a mix of hard-rock funk – fuelled by guitar virtuoso Bettencourt’s signature style, Gary Cherone’s resonant vocals and socially conscious lyrics, Pat Badger’s rock solid bass, and the hard-hitting Kevin Figueiredo on drums.
Extreme’s most recent release was the Take Us Alive live DVD and CD, recorded on the last night of the Saudades de Rock tour at the House Of Blues on August 8, 2009 in the band’s hometown of Boston.
