Adrian Belew – Side One (CD)
"Side One" is the thirteenth solo album by Adrian Belew, originally released in 2005. The album features bassist Les Claypool (from Primus) and drummer Danny Carey (from Tool) on its first three tracks. The track "Beat Box Guitar" was nominated for a Grammy in the "Best Rock Instrumental Performance" category in 2005.
"Side One" is the first in a series of three studio albums from one of rock's true unsung heroes. It features appearances from Danny Carey (Tool), Les Claypool (Primus) & others. Says Belew of the record, "There are three different attitudes that I've recently discovered in my writing, & this album is a representation of the first one. Side One deals with the concept of the 'power trio' & writing in that headspace. As the guitar player in that equation, you're only as good as your rhythm section, & I can't imagine a better rhythm section in a power trio than Les Claypool & Danny Carey." We know you'll agree.
