Blink 182: Moving on after Producer Jerry Finn’s Death

blink 182 Blink 182: Moving on after Producer Jerry Finn’s DeathBlink 182’s bass guitarist and co-lead singer Mark Hoppus sat down with MTV last week and revealed how the punk rock band is trying hard to finally wrap up the album, which they have been working on for a long time now.

Hoppus said that one of the main reasons for the massive delay has been the fact that all the three band members have their personal projects and therefore, finding time for Blink 182 has been tough for them all. However, what many don’t know is that band suffered a major blow three years ago when their longtime producer Jerry Finn died. Not only did he supervise the trio’s last three studio inventions, but he also advised them on their personal and business matters and critiqued their music without any bias. Finn also contributed his part in the studio, where his valuable suggestions helped the Blink fine-tune their multiplatinum music. The producer has been associated with the group since their 1997 album Dude Ranch, which is why Hoppus thinks that they are so badly shaken up by his untimely death. page go Blink 182: Moving on after Producer Jerry Finn’s Death Continue reading Blink 182: Moving on after Producer Jerry Finn’s Death »

britney spears Britney Spears is in a Genre of her Own

Since her arrival on the musical scene almost 15 years ago, Britney Spears has been on the forefront of the pop music industry. From her cute teen looks to sexy dance track, Britney has done all that could be done while remaining in the boundaries of pop music, and according to her longtime music producer Dr. Luke, his client has now become bigger than the pop genre itself.

During his interview with MTV at the ASCAP Pop Music Awards, Luke pointed at songs like Toxic’ and ‘Piece of Me’ and ‘Oops! … I Did It Again’ to prove his point and said that apart from all of them being influential, they also are shining examples that Britney can’t be confined to a single genre.

So when the duo took to the studio for the creation of Femme Fatale, Luke said that he kept the experimental musical nature of Britney in his mind. He recalled “She wanted to keep on with that and do stuff that was forward-thinking. So we put some dubstep stuff in there, in bridges; snuck it in different places and I hope it ended up good. I hope you like it.”
