    Jamie Playing With 30 Seconds to Mars, New Videos - New York City

    Guys, I wanted to post two really nice acoustic songs from the set that 30 Seconds to Mars did in NYC that were just put on You Tube; yeah that's my boy on guitar and backup vocals (!) Let me know if this is getting old for you all, but I really dig this stuff:

    If something is too hard to do, then it's not worth doing. You just stick that guitar in the closet next to your short-wave radio, your karate outfit and your unicycle and we'll go inside and watch TV.

    And one more - very exciting for me as I love the music and it's so cool to see my son playing with them:

    Add me to the list...

    My Son is in a small label Indie band and I know I enjoy that! I can only imagine him having this kind of success...

    It's very cool Les, keep it coming!

    Very cool and definitely worth sharing. I dig Thirty Seconds to Mars, their live shows are great.

    It's actually a church, but I don't know which one.

    30STM got ready for their European full blown tour by doing small-venue acoustic shows like this one, in NY, Chi, and maybe Philly?

    For me, what's especially cool is that Jamie is learning the biz from a very experienced touring band used to doing big shows. It's awfully hard to get that experience!

    That is absolutely cool-as-hell, Les. It's also really cool to think how many of our kids are also musicians. I like to think that's one of my greatest gifts to the boys. You probably feel the same way.

    What a fantastic experience! Very talented band too, I'm sure he can learn a lot

    Thanks for the kind words, guys! I do feel a little sheepish, in the sense that I realize that it's kind of braggy to be posting this stuff about your kid.

    But at the same time, you are musicians, and you understand both the totality of the work that goes into pulling off shows like this, and the musical result that speaks for itself. Son or no, if I didn't think the music was good, I wouldn't bother.

    One thing that interests me is that the band didn't try to fill up every bit of "space" in the arrangements to make up for the lack of electric and electronic instruments (the records have both). Somehow they made the decision to leave what I call "airspace" in the tracks, and I think they exploited the natural musical tension that results very nicely.

    It's something that I think a lot of artists could learn from!

    Just one example is Tomo Milisevic's guitar work in these vids. I know from talking with Jamie that Tomo is a very accomplished player with extremely impressive chops. I think Jamie used the word, "monster" in connection with how good he is. Yet in these shows, he plays very simple, restrained parts. It becomes more about what is working for the songs than showing off one's skills. As a composer, arranger and producer I'd say that's artistic in a good way.

    I also was impressed with Jared's skills as a bandleader and performer.

    It's a "Screamo" Band called I, The Skyline. I don't get it, but I don't think I'm supposed too! My role is to be supportive and loan gear...


    The good news to me is I think they've passed this phase. They are back writing and it's a lot more melodic, with a mix of electric and acoustic elements. I wish i had a way to post a song he gave me... they were goofing in the studio and did all acoustic version of "The Frey"'s song "Cable Car" with him on vocals - it's my very favorite of his.

    It's fun to watch them grow.

    Rango, they do a great job with the genre! Thanks for sharing that!

    I love the part about being supportive and loaning gear, too.

    Been there!

    Thanks

    One of my favorite things now is he will come over and we'll just go in my music room and play... Not much talking but an amazing amount of communication. I'm sure you enjoy it when you get a chance to play with your son.

    I think mine is starting to understand what I told my Father at his Sixtieth Birthday party -> "The older I get, the smarter YOU get..."

    Very Cool and beautifully done. Did they play any other songs, from their new album (which I bought). I ask this because I find it interesting that they played in a church. As we all know, 30STM's new album is a bit racy (at least some of the songs)--not a criticism at all--just a fact to my next point. Has anyone seen the documentary on ***** Riot? They are Russian Punk rock radical girls who play politically charged music aimed against Putin and the Russian Orthodox Church. They were arrested for taking their music to Moscow's Christ the Savior Church. Two of the three are still in jail. It's an excellent documentary and shows how screwed up governments can be when common folk speak up against them.
