Nuno Bettencourt


Nuno Bettencourt is a rock guitarist best in the game ritemnya. Several other guitarists who can match the game ritemnya can count for example: John Petrucci, Darren Housholder and some other metal funk players. Nuno creative techniques in creating new games have been known since the first album the band Extreme and the second group is: "Extreme" and "Pornograffitti". No wonder Nuno crowned the "Best New Talent" (best newcomer) so Extreme launched his second album "Pornograffitti".

In accordance with Nuno own words in the interview-an interview that the ideal is to write Nuno colored funk albums like Pearl Jam, Nirvana and the like. Therefore if you want to listen to Nuno's familiarity as a shredder, then we recommend you listen to the album Extreme: "Pornograffitti". The first album "Extreme" and third album "Three Side Story" is also not less good. Precisely Nuno own solo album and his new band Mourning Widows, not displaying the skill of the game Nuno own.

The dissolution Extreme Nuno quite disappointing fans. In 1982 the first time met Nuno Extreme vocalist Gary Cherone. This is the beginning of the band Extreme tsb. 2 years later (1984) Nuno leave school and concentrate on practicing guitar. Nuno see Extreme drummer Mike Mangini at a club in the Van Halen tribute band, while other bands are resting, Mike played a great drum solo. 1985 Nuno met with Extreme bassist Pat Badger who worked in a guitar shop in Winchester's Jim Mouradian where Nuno always modify his guitar there.

The name of the band they first called "The Dream" before using the name "Extreme" and produced the song "Mutha" who managed to break through the ranks of the song on MTV. Soon their band name changed to "Extreme" and perform at the Mare de Agosto Festival (Santa Maria) in 1986. In 1987, the Extreme won the "Outstanding Hard Rock Act" in the first year the Boston Music Awards. They also won the MTV video contest, which is seen also by record company A & MA & R scout. In September they received good news from A & M record to start recording.

In 1989 they re-referred to as "Rising Star" in the Boston Music Awards. Soon after their debut album was released, but not a lot of attention in addition to being the best-selling albums the first week in Boston, reached ranked 80 in U.S. charts and sold 300,000 copies. "Kid Ego" became their first single and then "Little Girls" and Mutha (donĂ¢ € ™ t Want to Go To School Today). Guitar Magazines Nuno crowned as "the next Eddie Van Halen"! Extreme tour to North America and Japan. The song "Play With Me" became a soundtrack of the movie "Bill and Teda € ™ s Excellent Adventure".
