Kisser’s pride over Beatles link

Andreas Kisser has warm memories of being invited to play with a Beatles tribute band at some of the places the Fab Four visited in their early days.

The Sepultura guitarist, who’s also a member of supergroup Metal Allegiance, believes he’s the only Brazilian artist to be named on the Cavern Club’s wall of fame in Liverpool.

Kisser says in the video below: “The band play the Beatles in very different ways – they respect the arrangements and stuff. They invite different musicians, and one year they invited me.

“Playing where John Lennon started, and where the Beatles played with Ringo Starr for the first time – you go to that world, it’s cool.”

Metal Allegiance features Alex Skolnick, David Ellefson and Mike Portnoy plus guests including Gary Holt, Randy Blythe, Phil Anselmo and others. They launch their self-titled debut album on September 18 via Nuclear Blast.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
