AWOLNATION's Aaron Bruno goes to Steve Perry from Journey for musical advice
AWOLNATION's Aaron Bruno goes to Steve Perry for advice.
The 36-year-old frontman revealed he has become pals with the Journey icon since rising to prominence as part of the electronic rock group, and also counts Weezer singer Rivers Cuomo as a professional acquaintance.
Speaking to Yahoo about Steve, he said: "He's just this beautiful human being that is still an amazing, caring musical mind, and to have him in my corner and care is incredible. And he's great to go to for advice. I've become acquaintances with Rivers Cuomo and I love Weezer so much, so that's really incredible to me as well. I guess to have these people that I looked up to as a kid just a phone number or text away is absolutely incredible, because I can ask them how they felt when they went through some of the trials and tribulations."
The rocker - who is in the group alongside Drew Stewart, Kenny Carkeet and Isaac Carpenter - performed at Camden's Electric Ballroom in London on Wednesday (01.04.15), where they played tracks from their 2011 debut, 'Megalithic Symphony', as well as new songs from their second album, 'Run', which they released last month.
Opening with their latest record's title track, the 14-song set raced through fan favourites including 'Not Your Fault' and 'Kill Your Heroes'.
After briefly exiting the central London stage, the four-piece group re-emerged for a four track encore, eventually ending with a powerful rendition of their international hit single, 'Sail'.
The band will kick off their tour of North America later this month.
