MASTERS OF REALITY
Legendary producer and musician Chris Goss to visit Leuven for the first time!
Masters of Reality are an American rock band formed in 1981, taking their name from a misprinted label of the third Black Sabbath album. Early influences were heavily derived from Sabbath, Cream and early King Crimson and since then the band's music has touched on many styles, ranging from blues to sixties-era pop.
Masters of Reality has close ties to the "Palm Desert Scene" and frontman Chris Goss is a notable producer (Kyuss, Queens of the Stone Age, UNKLE, Soulwax). Josh Homme, Nick Oliveri, Dave Catching and Mark Lanegan all joined the band for a period of time, and legendary Cream drummer Ginger Baker recorded an album with the band.
Multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and producer Alain Johannes played and worked on / with Queens of the Stone Age, Eagles of Death Metal, PJ Harvey, Chris Cornell, Mark Lanegan, Desert Sessions, Flea and Anthony Kiedis to name but a few.
In the nineties Alain Johannes' main band was Eleven (album Howling book recommended for any QOTSA fan) and his last solo album Hum got released on Mike Patton's Ipecac Recordings.
