The band lined up a second show at the world famous Canyon Club in Agoura Hills, CA and released a follow-up video for the song I Don't Know What Love Is, developing a film-like trilogy portraying a story that builds from the characters in the first video release. Like the days of old when MTV reigned as the world's strongest entertainment video channel, Heaven and Earth was recreating the magic that lured fans to the table to witness a complete package. With an amazing album release, strong supporting video content and mind-blowing stage shows, Heaven and Earth had arrived triumphant.
In 2014 with Quiet Riot booking tour schedules bassist Chuck Wright had to make a decision, departing from Heaven and Earth to maintain the supreme bottom end of the time tested rock legends alongside Frankie Banali and drummer Richie Onori was called to his own projects that would take time out of Heaven and Earth. Longtime friend and artist appearing on earlier releases from Heaven and Earth, Tony Franklin, would perform with the band at the Canyon Club while Smith undertook the task of replacing the original line-up with powerhouse artists capable of maintaining the originality of the band. This came in the form of drummer Jackie Barnes (Steve Morse), keyboardist Ty Bailie (Ego Band) and bass player Lynn Sorensen (Bad Company).
'I'd come off tour and bought a new house in Los Angeles,' Ty Bailie shared. 'I put an advertisement up in a local music store offering keyboard lessons and Stuart called me. It was a rare opportunity and I was glad to take it.'
During the week ending on Friday, June 20th, Heaven and Earth wrapped up tour rehearsals for the European Summer Tour in North Hollywood. Music Journalist Joe Dolan was invited to witness the magic of the new line-up melding into a music machine, finalizing the stage show and getting ready to offer the UK a chance to witness what the hype is all about.
