YOUR QUESTIONS: For Extreme’s Nuno Bettencourt


Extreme are on the verge of releasing long-awaited new album Saudades de Rock and embarking on their first world tour in over 12 years. In the midst of preparations, guitarist Nuno Bettencourt is taking time out to talk to MusicRadar next week, and this is your chance to ask the questions…

For many, Extreme are best known for their More Than Words smash hit in 1991 - visions of long, pony-tailed hair, bad shirts and swooning ladies will surely come flooding back. But Bettencourt went on to work with some of the best in the business.

As well as solo project Schizophonic, Nuno's band credits have included Mourning Widows with drummer Jeff Consi, Population 1, DramaGods and most recently, Satellite Party alongside Jane's Addiction frontman Perry Farrell.

In 1990, the Portuguese guitarist was honoured with the Washburn N4 Nuno Bettencourt Signature guitar, which expanded into a signature series of Nuno-designed axes still popular today.
