Faraz Anwar backstabbed in “Dreamer Awakes”

Guns N’ Roses and Faraz Anwar were supposed to work on the project “The Dreamer Awakes“, says Pakistan’s master of progressive rock himself. The peace through music project which is now in the hands of Atif Aslam was supposed to be in Faraz’ hands.

He was completely furious about the project he started as he has been cut off without even giving him any credit. He added, “Some people take information from you and cut you off from something you started without even giving you credit.”

Atif who is now collaborating with popular American rock band, Guns N’ Roses and is the face of the ‘Pakistan America Peace Through Music Project‘, was chosen by the musician turned humanitarian Todd Shea.

Atif says, “Todd Shea mentioned my voice being the main reason why he chose me as the face of the project.  After listening to me,  he became a fan and then he started researching on me and found out that I am famous.”

  1. Faraz Anwar is a true legend in the history of Pakistan rock n roll.Artist like Strings,Atif Aslam should give him credits for his work.  😀


  3. Faraz never got kicked out of the project because he was never part of the project in the first place. I came up with the idea for Sonic Peacemakers 3 years ago and had never even heard of Faraz Anwar until he told the media that we stole his project and didn’t give him any credit. The guy seriously needs to grow up- he may be a wonderful musician but he is only hurting himself by talking bs and making defamatory statements about people he doesn’t even know. Lanny Cordola and I brought Atif to New York last week and Atif performed with Lanny, Dave Kushner of Velvet Revolver and the GnR lineup from the Use Your Illusion Album and Tour (except for Axyl Rose) Slash, Duff McKagan, Gilby Clarke and Matt Sorum. If Faraz had introduced himself to me, showed me some of his music and acted like a gentleman, then who knows- maybe he would have been invited to be a part of the project. But we don’t just want good musicians- we want musicians who understand and believe in the concept of Sonic Peacemakers to erase misconceptions, bring Pakistan’s great talent to the international scene and provide support and love to Pakistan’s most vulnerable children.
