Wallflowers frontman tackles God, war and drunken puppets on fifth album with rollingstone.com
Four albums and more than a decade down the line, the Wallflowers return on May 24th with Rebel, Sweetheart, the follow-up to 2002?s Red Letter Days. Recorded with veteran rock producer Brendan O?Brien (Pearl Jam, Bruce Springsteen), the album showcases more of singer-songwriter Jakob Dylan?s meticulously crafted songs, with topics ranging from the war in Iraq to failed friendships. The band -- singer-guitarist Dylan, keyboardist Rami Jaffee, bassist Greg Richling and new drummer Fred Eltringham (Ben Kweller) -- will launch a tour in support of Rebel at the end of April. Dylan speaks to Rolling Stone about songwriting, his secret sense of humor and not behaving like Axl Rose.
According to the band Godsmack, they arrived at the name after one band member made a particularly inappropriate comment and another remarked "God will smack you for that one". Hence forth one would receive a "Godsmack" for bad behavior.
Godsmack is also an Alice in Chains song from the album "Dirt."
