Reveal young Ian10 year old son of ANTHRAX guitarist Ian Scottteamed up with a 16 year old Liam Williams (guitar/vocals), and 15 years old Theo O’Gara (bass/vocals) to form a three-way rock and roll band called BEE.
Formed in 2019 in the heart of the Santa Monica Mountains in Southern California, BEEThe musical style of is described in a press release as an “explosive cocktail of hard rock and heavy metal with a touch of psych, prog and an alt-folk edge”.
BEE will perform at Whiskey a Go Go in West Hollywood, Calif. on May 15. They will also play Topanga Days music festival at the Topanga Community House in Topanga, California on May 30.
Struck by the other world John Bonham-like rhythms he heard rising from band rehearsal in his little sister’s basement, williamswho was looking to form his own band, discovered the natural talents of the young drummer revel in and quickly asked if he could join him on lead guitar in an impromptu jam. Immediately, the two boys gelled in the sound and vibe. Realizing that they should continue making music together, they quickly team up with Liamhis classmate’s bass-master Theo O’Garaand the trinity was formed.
With the three members of BEE being real multi-instrumentalists, each from musical families with slightly different styles, Liam, revel in and Theo collectively recognize their individual musical flavors and bring them together to enhance the deep foundations of their own music across the spectrum of rock and roll, from classic rock to nu metal and everything in between.
Bringing together an avalanche of original song ideas, BEE quickly put together an album of all-new tracks that would have bands like STONE AGE QUEENS afraid to follow them. Together they spent four days at the famous Workshop 606 in Northridge, California, plugged into the legendary Sound City Neve console. There they let the cool waves of their organic inspiration flow and coagulate through historic, time-worn channels touched by the vibrations of some of music’s greatest artists in history, creating BEEthe self-titled debut album, due out May 27 via Swingin’ Pipe Records/The orchard.
Talking about what it’s like to be in a band, revel inborn June 2011, said, “It’s one of the most awesome feelings you can have. Playing music with people is one of the most creative things you can do. You can make music the way you want it. And at my age “Forget it. I’m so grateful to be able to play music with two guys who are 5 years older than me. I am so grateful to be able to play as well as I can at 11 years old. Quick summary: Being in a band is the best feeling you can have.”
As for what it’s like to play songs on stage, revel in said, “Playing on stage is a bonding moment for the players in the band. When you’re playing on stage and the drums and bass are tight together and the guitar and vocals follow, it’s like the deepest feeling. exciting and the healthiest you can get. Performing your own songs, which you wrote, all by yourself with a little help from others in front of a crowd! Love it! You’ll feel like you’ve become a controlling god! .(That can’t always be good haha)”.
These last months, Scott shared videos of him jamming with revel in to songs by BURIAL, HELMET, SYSTEM OF A DOWN, CORN and FOO FIGHTERS, among others.
revel in is apparently a gifted multi-instrumentalist who joined the FOO FIGHTERS on stage in September 2019 at Bourbon and beyond festival in Louisville, Kentucky to perform “Still” on the guitar when he was only eight years old.
In 2014, Ian Told Horns up the rocks that her then three-year-old son was a huge fan of METALLIC, THE BEATLES and AC DC and that he could already tell the difference between Good Scottthe voice of and that of Brian Johnson.
“He knows many things he hears or sees in the house”, Scott said at the time. “But what’s really cool is that he recognizes and knows the difference between Good Scott and Brian Johnson, which is pretty cool, I think, for an almost three-year-old. Whenever AC DC is on, it will go, ‘It’s Good singing.’ And then when it’s not good, he’ll say, ‘It’s not Good singing.’ He knows. It’s pretty cool, I think.”
Asked if metal musicians should be parents, Ian said it was the best thing that ever happened to him. He added: “I think you have to take it on a case by case basis. I couldn’t say enough about having a child; I think it’s the greatest thing in the world. But I think ‘there are a lot of people on this planet, not necessarily metal musicians, it shouldn’t be parents.”
