Why are we so afraid of the hella tour de force?
Posted On July 27, 2021
The tour de fles article The Tour de Force, which was the brainchild of Australian producer/producer/writer/musician/filmmaker John Baez, has gone through quite a bit of change since its debut in 1996.
Its debut album, All the Way, went gold on Billboard’s Australian Albums Chart in 1998.
In 1999, Baez also released The Music Never Stopped, a tribute to the late Australian musician David Bowie.
He has since released many more songs for his own solo projects, including the Grammy nominated, Supernova, as well as the acclaimed, highly acclaimed, critically acclaimed, and commercially successful album The Black Album, which featured guest appearances from a plethora of artists including The Doors, Nirvana, The Rolling Stones, The Allman Brothers Band, Prince, Paul McCartney, and more.
The tour’s most recent tour de grace, Hella Mega Tour, is a continuation of that first album, but has changed considerably.
The tour, which took place from October 12 to November 5, 2017, is the third installment of Baez’s multi-platinum mega tour.
“The tour is my life,” he said on his Facebook page.
“I’ve been on this tour since 1996.
It’s my favorite part of my life.
My family and friends love me every single day.
It’s really a privilege to be able to do this tour.
And I’m so grateful for the people that I’ve met and the people who’ve supported me along the way.”
A tour that has lasted nearly 40 years has led to a wealth of knowledge, but some have found the journey intimidating, particularly as Baez is a notoriously introverted and introspective person.
Baez, who is of Japanese descent, often struggles with language barriers and has spoken about the difficulties of dealing with such difficulties in his personal life.
He often feels as if he’s “in the minority” and sometimes finds himself feeling isolated.
On the tour, he has often stated that he has a difficult time with the idea of sharing personal life details.
He said on the tour that he would not share his phone number, or email, or social media accounts.
This past June, Biz also spoke about the tour and its effects on him and his family.
He said that, while he enjoyed the experience of the tour as a whole, it has left him with a few personal questions.
“How am I going to do it without a girlfriend?
How am I not going to get pregnant?
How amI going to deal with being depressed and lonely?”
With that said, he still says that the tour is “one of the best experiences of my whole life”.
Biz said that the last few years have been a learning process.
When he first started the tour in 1996, BIZ was still living in Australia, working in the recording industry and having just released his solo album, The Music Not Stopping.
In 1999, he started working with a friend in the music industry, and the two soon discovered they had a connection.
Soon after that, he began working with the band, The Black Keys, who were also touring on the same tour.
Baez later described that experience as “the most rewarding experience of my entire life”.
“I had to learn the songs.
It was like a second language, because I’d been working in music all my life and I was learning everything I could.
But I felt like I had to grow up a little bit and learn all these songs,” Baez said.
After the Black Keys broke up, Biaz and his friend continued to collaborate on a number of other projects, such as the new album, Bizzarely Blue, as they recorded new material.
Biz was also working on a documentary about Australian singer-songwriter Midge Mansell called Biz Sucks.
But the tour was just getting started when Baez started working on his next album, which he titled Hella Tour.
From the beginning, he had been thinking about how the tour would be a huge departure from the album that he released that year, All You Need is Love.
Instead, the tour will be Baez and co’s fourth album in 20 years.
The album features appearances by Baez (the Black Keys), The Doors (the Doors), The Rolling Stone (The Allman Bros), Paul McCartney (the Beatles), The Beatles (the Stones), The Ramones (the Rolling Stones), Prince (the Purple One), and more than 20 others.
Despite the fact that Baez has said many times that he is a “super-enthusiast” of the music, he is very much of the “superfan” type.
So, while it may be a lot to absorb for the average fan, Bays fans can still get a glimpse of the man behind the album
