All this week we’re focusing on the must-see bands at the 2017 Ramblin’ Man Fair and first up it’s US funk rockers Extreme.
Date: Saturday July 29
Stage: Planet Rock Main Stage
Don’t miss: More Than Words – the smash hit ballad features a sublime acoustic turn from Nuno Bettencourt and topped the US charts.
Latest album: Saudades de Rock (2008)
Star man: Bettencourt has played to millions of fans across the globe during the last decade…as Rihanna’s lead guitarist. One of the most talented musicians of his generation.
What we said: During Extreme’s chart-busting heyday Gary Cherone boasted some of the finest pipes in rock and the pressure was on to revive former glories. Well, Cherone did more than that. (Newcastle City Hall, 2008)
