Biography:

Since 2006, Adrian Belew has led his favorite 'Power Trio' lineup, featuring Eric Slick on drums and Julie Slick on bass. They have been devastating audiences all around the USA and globally, from Italy to Canada to Germany to Japan. With the release of their brand-new CD 'Side Four - Live' they return to the road to stretch out the new material and introduce it to new audiences. The show will feature material from the new CD, classics from Adrian's many solo albums (including the recent 'Side One', 'SideTwo', and 'Side Three'), as well as solo moments, spirited improvisation and King Crimson compositions. 'Side One' features special guests Les Claypool of Primus and Danny Carey of Tool, and includes the Grammy-Nominated single - 'Beat Box Guitar'. The recently released 'Side Four (Live)' captures the current trio in a burning performance. Adrian is well-known for his diverse travels around the musical map - he first appeared on guitar-world radar when he joined Frank Zappa's band in 1977 for tours of the USA and Europe. When Frank Zappa hires you as his guitarist, people listen up. And well they should have - Adrian's signature tones and influences are all over Zappa's movie 'Baby Snakes' as well as his biggest-selling album 'Sheik Yerbouti'. His unique use of effects and whammy bar remains completely different, and his techniques continue to be a huge influence on scores of guitarists. The 80s and 90s were a wild ride through countless tours and albums with David Bowie, Talking Heads, Laurie Anderson, Paul Simon, and Nine Inch Nails. In addition, there were Adrian's many albums & tours, both solo and with The Bears. For over 25 years he has been the lyricist, voice and co-guitarist (with Robert Fripp) of progressive rock legends KING CRIMSON. In between touring, writing, recording and a plethora of guitar magazine awards, Adrian has always found time for producing other artists and releasing his own songs and sonic experiments. The new POWER TRIO has energized Adrian to an incredible degree - 'The Slicks bring a whole new energy to the band,' says Adrian. 'I honestly feel like we can do anything now. They're great to play with and this band sounds incredible.' Adrian has several projects ahead for this year, including some King Crimson dates, a huge gear auction, a new studio record featuring the Power Trio, solo concerts, a fall European tour, and some special projects involving one of his other great loves - visual art. Already an accomplished painter, Adrian is responsible for several of his CD covers including all of the recent 'Side' series releases.
