Dave Moreno, the current drummer of Puddle of Mudd, was also behind the kit on Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson’s solo album Tyranny of Souls, released in 2005. Moreno briefly joined Puddle of Mudd the same year but parted ways soon. He rejoined Puddle of Mudd in 2014, replacing Shannon Boone.

American alternative rock outfit Puddle of Mudd are all set to tour India this September and October. The band’s India tour, brought in association with VH1 India, will see the band play at Hard Rock Cafes in 5 cities – Mumbai, Pune, Bengaluru, Hyderabad and Delhi. The band also play a one-off gig in Sri Lanka on September 26 before touching Indian shores.

The band first burst on to the rock scene way back in 2001 with their major label debut Come Clean, which sold over five million copies worldwide. The album was led by several hits, including the debut single Control. The second single Blurry was the band’s most successful single, reaching No. 5 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and No. 8 on the UK Singles Chart. It also hit No. 1 on Billboard Mainstream Rock and Billboard Alternative Rock charts. The third single Drift & Die spent six weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock chart. The fourth single, She Hates Me also reached the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Mainstream Rock chart, as well as No. 13 on the Billboard Hot 100. Other hits by the band include Away from Me and Psycho, the latter being Billboard’s No. 1 Mainstream Rock Song of 2008.

The current lineup of the band includes vocalist and founding member Wes Scantlin, Matt Fuller on lead guitars, Michael John Adams on bass and Dave Moreno on drums.

This is one of those rare occasions when Indian promoters have stayed good to their word. The Puddle of Mudd tour was originally scheduled for June and July this year. However the tour was cancelled due to ”unforeseen circumstances”. The promoters had promised that the tour would be rescheduled and promised to bring the band back. True to their word, they have.

For those still in two minds, quite understandably so, and seeking official confirmation, the dates have also been updated in the “Shows” section on the official Puddle of Mudd website.

The opening acts for the Mumbai and Bengaluru shows will be The Other People and Best Kept Secret respectively. As of now, no opening acts have been announced for the Delhi, Pune and Hyderabad shows.

Here are the tour dates:

Hard Rock Cafe, Worli (Mumbai) on 29th September (Opening Act: The Other People)
Hard Rock Cafe, Pune on 30th September
Hard Rock Cafe, Bengaluru on 1st October (Opening Act: Best Kept Secret)
Hard Rock Cafe, Hyderabad on 3rd October
Hard Rock Cafe, Delhi on 4th October

Foo Fighters – Walk

Who would have known that the current #1 Rock hit on the US radio was not even considered worthy of being included on an album! The song “Walk,” which was released as the last track on the new FOO FIGHTERS album “Wasting Light” and also as the album’s second single, was originally written for their last studio album, “Echoes, Silence, Patience and Grace,” but was not even included on it!

As revealed by frontman Dave Grohl in recent interviews following the success of the single, he decided to put the final version as the last track of “Wasting Light” because it “sort of makes sense to the album’s theme of time and second chances”, and to “end the record on a positive note.”

Well, Mr. Grohl, it sure is one hell of a positive note! The song dethroned the FOO FIGHTERS lead single “Ropes,” also from “Wasting Light,” on the Billboard Rock Songs chart to reach the top, a very rare feat indeed. The song is also #1 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Songs chart for three consecutive weeks and on the Billboard Alternative Songs chart for two consecutive weeks now.

The music video also won the Best Rock Video award at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards.
