Not true Mr Q!
Right in the fact that I am at Roadrunner putting the finishing touches to a couple of albums but wrong to say no eighties connections. One of my new groups happens to be an enormously exciting 'retro' eighties project going under the unlikely handle of the Toilet Boys....very Motley Crue circa 'Too Fast For Love' (hey I even got in David Bryan from Bon Jovi to co-write a couple of toons!). Mostly though I'm dealing in 'Active' rock as the genre spitting Yanks like to term it, which is actually a euphemism for anything that's vaguely current.
Sadly although I'd love to make records with AOR sounding outfits the powers to be would have a blue fit if I brought in a band like Airrace...It was hard enough to get Dream Theater signed and poor old Bob Halligan got a right old kicking from the label just for making a wildly consumate (whoops! there's that old journalistic standby popping up again) album of emensely satisfying, well written songs. I was also heavily involved in the Jamie Kyle record ('The Passionate Kind') and that was not a pleasent experience for Jamie or myself...she got royally f**ked by both the label and her poncy managers....I could go into detail and one day I will.
So Q let's have a little less of the square bashing and a bit more compassion instead.
Beam me up Scotty....
