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.
Alter Bridge was formed in 2004 by Mark Tremonti (lead guitar, vocals), Brian Marshall (bass) and Scott Phillips (drums), all former members of Creed, with Myles Kennedy (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), formerly of The Mayfield Four.
