EXTREME



Thank God for strep throat! I had to call in sick to work one Saturday because of it, and in my misery I came across a local TV show on Channel 4 called Rap Around. (Remember that show? And Community Auditions? Candlepin Bowling? Nevermind....we'll save that for the bad locally produced TV shows page.) Anyway, Extreme was the guest that week. They were promoting the at the time new album Pornograffitti and performed songs from it acoustically. I've been a fan ever since.

It seems that people either love Extreme pretty much fanatically or they hate them with an undying passion...I myself can't understand the latter position. The guys have always been loyal to their Boston roots and luckily for my friends and I, that has meant lots of shows and events.

In October 1996, the guys decided to go their separate ways professionally. But they did not say goodbye to the fans or to each other. Nuno released "Schitzophonic" and then formed Mourning Widows. Until recently, they seemed to only play overseas. But in the last year or so, the band has played extensively throughout New England Mike played with Steve Vai, teaches at Berklee, and now playing in a band called Tribe of Judah. Gary, as you all know, joined Van Halen. It was certainly an interesting time. Now he's back in Boston, doing some occasional gigs with the Boston Rock Opera and is now fronting Tribe of Judah. Pat worked with Jason of Saigon Kick in Supertransaltantic and is now playing in Tribe of Judah. It's an almost extreme reunion! Paul, their orginal drummer, owned The Strand Theater in Providence and is now managing Godsmack. Click below to see what life after Extreme is really like.
