Adrian Belew

Sunday, August 28, at The Granada Theater

With an instantly recognizable style and a body of work as substantial as any session guitarist, Adrian Belew makes a rare Dallas appearance. For three decades Belew has played and sung on some landmark recordings, from David Bowie's "Lodger" and Talking Heads' "Remain in Light" to the revamped King Crimson's trio of brilliant '80s releases. Sure, his effects-heavy, distorted leads and over-the-top personality can come off as irritating, and his solo efforts, while always technically impressive, have never been on par with his work as a hired gun. Nevertheless, his playing and passion seem to inherently shine through, as if pop, power and prestige can win the day almost every time.
