Ep. 31: Degrees Of Separation... EXTREME

Episode Summary

Ep. 31 is the 2nd in our series called, “Degrees Of Separation…” where will discuss the more obscure side projects and solo releases from some not-so-obscure bands. In this episode, we cover the immensely talented and slightly underrated band from Boston: EXTREME. Featuring one of rock’s true guitar heroes (Nuno Bettencourt) and a former Van Halen singer (Gary Cherone), this band were on top of the world in the early 90s. Their funkafied brand of hard rock was completely overshadowed by the ballads that made them superstars. What happened after their break-up in ’96? Join us to find out.

Episode Notes

New to InObscuria? It’s all about digging up obscure Rock n' Punk n' Metal from one of 3 categories: the Lost, the Forgotten, or the Should Have Beens. While we may be talking about a band that many of you know in this episode, perhaps you are not aware of the depth of side projects that they have had over their long career. Our hope is that we turn you on to something new!
