Joe Perry, Johnny Depp and their winning Christmas compilation on iTunes

Posted in Books, Johnny Depp, movies by Anna Maria Polidori on January 7, 2015

A success this little compilation of Christmas’ songs

 

The Aerosmith’s member Joe Perry ha recently released his first little collection of Christmas’ songs: “Joe Perry’s Merry Christmas”via Unison Music Group .

The EP is available now at Unison’s  or on iTunes.

The famous and legendary guitarist joeperryrunvid_420x237    of the Boston’s band of the Aerosmith admitted time ago that it was a long time he had on his mind the idea of releasing a Christmas’ album. Many artists love to launching special albums with the most known and famous Christmas songs during the Christmas’ season.

“White Christmas”, “Silent Night”, “Santa Claus Is Back In Town” and “Run Run Rudolph” the songs proposed by Joe Perry in collaboration with 1508617_373713142802335_8417389596748243106_n….Johnny Depp on rhythm guitar.

Joe Perry recently told to Guitar International something more about his friendship and later collaboration for the creation of the EP with Johnny 580228_708843162542535_4861872405801149976_n
Perry confessed: “I’ve been a fan and admirer of Johnny Depp for a long time“.

The first time Joe Perry saw Johnny was in Chocolat 10172803_630902083669977_7013312866014018942_n: “I remember seeing him in the movie Chocolat180px-Johnny_Depp , where he plays the gypsy guitar Johnny-Depp-1 player. I was really impressed. You could tell that he was really playing guitar versus cutting back and forth to a musician. In the movie, he plays a lot of Django Reinhardt stuff. I didn’t know him 10570345_300767760096874_5929906380245164855_n at the time, but remember telling myself that someday I have to get a guitar lesson off him if I meet him since I don’t know any of that type of stuff. As it turned out, about four years later he dropped by the studio when we recorded our last studio record with Jack Douglas, a producer“.

Of course, Joe Perry started to be thrilled.

Johnny is incredibly social and kind. Joe Perry remembers that moments.

Jack knew him and asked him to come down. We started talking of music and guitars and that’s where our friendship started“.

The idea of a Christmas’ album considering that the launch of the book Rocks, an autobiography of the guitarist was over, more real. Perry explains why he thought that Johnny could be his best collaborator: “When Aerosmith came back from South America, I needed a nice acoustic one to play on the CD so I asked to Johnny if he could have been helpful“.

The surprise of Joe Perry: “We went to his studio where he had 20 or 25 vintage Martins from 1933 and old blues-style guitars. Let me add one of the nicest collections I’ve seen. He lent me one and I asked him to sing background vocals on Freedom Fighter.

Johnny said him something more: “I’ve been out here in a L.A. for a while now since the book tour ended and he said I could use his studio, so I have been working on some solo stuff in my spare time with what little I have“.

Desires of Aerosmith’s are many. Perry tells some of them: “I’ve always wanted to do a Christmas CD with Aerosmith; it’s one of those short-list things that we never got around to doing, like a blues CD or a cover CD of rock songs“.

In this case the Bostonian decided for a Christmas’ album.

He tells: “I had some time and decided to cover a few Christmas songs for an EP and put it out on iTunes. The songs turned out lot better than I thought they would. Johnny came by to listen and we were planning to do ‘Run Run Rudolph’, as we are both big Chuck Berry fans. It was the perfect chance to have him lay a rhythm track down alongside mine. It worked great as we were both Chuck Berrying-out.

Perry told to The Pulse of Radio his idea for the future he’ll be heading down the instrumental route.

I’ve written a bunch of stuff and it’s probably focused a little more on some instrumental stuff” admitted Perry.

Great satisfaction because Perry explains: “I was nominated for a Grammy for one of the songs on the ‘Joe Perry‘ solo record, and I’ve always had a couple of instrumental things on there, so, I’m thinkin’ of goin’ a little bit down that road.
I’ve been inspired in a way that I haven’t been inspired for the other records and it’s coming from a different place“. Songs will be put out this coming months.

A curiosity needs to be told: a singer and guitarist like Perry what kind of relationship developed with the time with… Christmas? A very healthy one for what reported by a recent interview with Blabbermouth.

Joe Perry in fact said he loves to spend the Christmas’ time with all his family. They all love to opening the stockings created by the grand-mother sat close to the fire. Joe Perry thinks that the gifts shouldn’t be opened ’til Christmas.

It’s tradition of their family to have a big Christmas’ Eve dinner. Like a common family they love to watching some good Christmas’ movies on tv.

To Perry Christmas is a special time for staying more close to the family putting the sufferance of the world for once aside.

Into the Woods is a fairy-tale in the…fairy-tale. Written by Stephen Sondheim in fact in the late ’80s for Broadway where it obtained a wonderful success, the story is the one of a baker and his wife. The poor couple can’t have any children because cursed by a powerful and horrible witch. So, the idea of going “into the woods” for searching the witch, and breaking the curse. The travel is long and of course during a trip little or big there are many encounters at time with good  but also with nasty, weird, strange creatures. The two protagonists will meet some of the most beloved Brothers Grimm’s Brothers Grimm characters like Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel. All these characters are searching for something or for someone. As said by Rob Marshall: this movie is perfect for the post 9/11 and it’s perfect and very actual for the modernity and families and children of our times. It is in particular analyzed byt this musical what happen to people after the moment of the “happily ever after” and  . With surprising results.

 

It’s possible to pre-order the soundtrack of the movie Into the Woods, on stores this dec 16th.

Oppps, he revealed too much!

Sondheim, Into the Woods, and the new statement.

 

 

Stephen Sondheim S Sodheim had to be very relaxed that afternoon of two weeks ago with the 17 teachers of the high school during the meeting regarding censorship. He indulged a lot in fact talking about his works, and of course the new Disney‘s production Into the Woods, on theaters this Christmas’ Day 2014, the biggest temptation.

He revealed in fact, maybe too much.

And there are first reactions to the article appeared in The New Yorker.

Today it was released a statement saying that Any moment a song apparently cut, hasn’t been cut at all from the movie version. Stephen Joshua Sondheim in fact anticipated that the sexual intercourse between the Baker’s wife and Prince Charming (Cinderella’s husband) in the movie adaptation had been cut.

Sondheim added in the statement:

An article in The New Yorker misreporting my “Master Class” conversation about censorship in our schools with seventeen teachers from the Academy for Teachers a couple of weeks ago has created some false impressions about my collaboration with the Disney Studio on the film version of Into the Woods. The fact is that James [Lapine, who wrote both the show and the movie] and I worked out every change from stage to screen with the producers and with Rob Marshall, the director. Despite what the New Yorker article may convey, the collaboration was genuinely collaborative and always productive.

When the conversation with the teachers occurred, I had not yet seen a full rough cut of the movie. Coincidentally, I saw it immediately after leaving the meeting and, having now seen it a couple of times, I can happily report that it is not only a faithful adaptation of the show, it is a first-rate movie. And for those who care, as the teachers did, the Prince’s dalliance is still in the movie, and so is “Any Moment.”

Anyway not only the song Any moment had to be cut. Sondheim said Rapunzel does not die in the cinematographical version, while she dies in the show, adding also that Disney in a way had some little perplexities regarding the Wolf/Johnny Depp and Little Red Riding Hood and the sexual innuendo’s song.

The statement doesn’t clarify if these changes will take place or not.

It’s not the first time Sondheim talks with a lot of freedom about sensitive topics revealing too much.
