In a recent interview with Lazer 103.3, former Rihanna guitarist Nuno Bettencourt has revealed his thougts about Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody movie.
Interviewer asked ‘Have you seen Bohemian Rhapsody’ and he responded:
“Actually, myself and Steve snuck out into a theater a couple of days ago in Denver. We actually sent a little video – we were like two little kids – we sent the video to Brian [May] of us about to watch it, super-excited. We sent it to him. It was a great experience, a great evening.”
On how he joined Generation Axe, he said:
“I thought it might be an e-mail or a phone call, but this falcon showed up at my window with a note attached to it from Steve. It was pretty interesting.
When Steve Vai calls you, and he’s one of the biggest voices in your guitar life – I used to go see and play whenever I got the chance, whether it was with David Lee Roth or otherwise – when he calls, you go. And he had a great idea. And unlike maybe some of the earlier G3 type of stuff, which are amazing, what I love about this is that it’s not just about guitar, it’s about music.
And it’s very musical. He loves everybody to have their own space and to be able to sing if you want, to be able to do an acoustic piece if you want… And what’s really thrilling about it is that if you come to the show, you see stuff that you’ve never seen – me and Zakk do a song, him [Vai] and Yngwie do a song, five of us not just trading solos but playing in harmony. Steve is an incredible arranger.
I think those are the things you don’t want to miss. Whether you’re a guitar player or a musician, it’s just a love of music.”
