As well affects others who also rely on this for a living...crew, paid flights and hotels, band members, fans who travelled and bought flights/hotels...cancelling is only good for one person, the one needing the gig(s) cancelled, for everyone else its a nightmare so we find ways to pull through!

Alex was recording at a buddy of mine's studio and he already had Kuni booked to come in...the studio owner told Alex he knew me well and I was called to co-write and sing on the one song. It was pretty quick and easy, Alex let me do my thing on it and that was it really.

I started working with them in 1988, with no labels biting our drummer Aldy Damian's family invested on us making the album we wanted to make with the producers/engineers with the idea of talking a label into releasing a completed album vs investing and giving us what we needed to make it. That master was shopped and the only one who bit was Curb Records, known as a Country label primarily but

I LOVE IT, SOUP TO NUTS, who cares about the covers, they sound like Van Halen songs! It's not their best but for a band with so few DLR albums, this one destroys the last one they did with him or any of those awful bonus tracks on the best of releases! SPIN IT!

Black Tiger was my introduction to Y&T so I vehemently disagree...in fact, Barroom Boogie is one of my faves on it because of the cheeky lyric and classic RNR groove. Haze's drumming makes me forget his kit doesnt sound like cannons and to me the worst song is still as good as the best. I tried going back to Earthshaker and the previous albums but they lacked everything I loved about BT an

I remember just after recording the 1st Yngwie album almost 40 years ago, telling him I wanted to drop the 'Soto' in my name and simply go as Jeff Scott (following in the footsteps of Vince Neil and others who changed their stage names by simply removing their surnames). I was very aware of Jef Scott from the LA scene and thought people might confuse me as him but it was Yngwie who told me it

I still frequent this page as I have for the past 20+ years...I interact not for any other reason you lot do, the love (and sometimes disgruntlement) of the music we love! That said, the artist/fan thing can be a touchy subject and not always as it appears in the side view mirror. Point in case, many moons ago at one of Andrew's MRF events in the US, I believe I was booked there with WET but c

This certainly falls in the 'different strokes' category...I happen to love Hot Space, minus a few fillers. I agree Flash Gordon was not really a Queen album per se but (not because I rate it low) The Works got the fewest spins at my house. I was one of those Gaga and Break Free naysayers but now I can tolerate them.To me, The Miracle was a bit of a return to form, it rocked more than previous ef

I saw this too and wondered how/why he didn't clearly hear he was off the beat/measures and correct himself. Even stranger (as I have been in scenarios where we had to 'follow the singer') the band didn't correct themselves in hearing it was well off. A pre-recorded track makes most sense in that the track kept playing 'perfectly' over the wrong part of the song. Makes one wonder as too, the voca

Stirring the pot? I went to see Phil X play last night at the venue I hang at all the time for the past 21 years, I almost didn't go because I didn't want to ruffle feathers, stir the pot and all the hyperboles you can think of...I took a pic with the support band who posted it immediately, I was asked to leave shortly after with the words verbatim 'as long as I am there, the show will be cancell

It was a fun and funny night TBH, I couldn't stop laughing then and now waking up to see his retort was I got kicked out of a club because I snuck in hahaha, I am on the club's lifetime guest list, I know them all who work and own the place, they are my friends for 21 years hahaha, nice try but only his robot followers will believe this nonsense.

I love all the varied suggestions and personal faves! The funny thing here is, especially the 1st 3 releases, are so varied in style and genre...for one to say Love Parade as a go to may not see the vision I had in exploring my Soul/Pop/Funk side whereas something like LITT tapped more into the Hard Rock/Pop-Rock side. My suggestion is to try before you buy...easy to find the titles on my page

I know all of this from many appearances through the decades one must 'sing' to a pre-recorded track because the show or station are not equipped for full on live gig and/or to sound good. Miming along, you tend to forget some things as you're doing it....watch old VH or Queen mimes on TV shows, Freddie and Dave were notorious for not syncing to the tracks!

Not about not knowing the song, its about remembering how you pre-recorded the track being used/heard out front. By singing along, muscle memory makes it almost seamless in not 'looking' mimed. In many a video I have made, directors always insist you sing along live and as you would for real, you don't make natural faces or emotions by just moving the mouth like a puppet. The guide is to l

I believe the point of the post was to hear what he is hearing in his personal ear monitors...click track, audible reminder and count before singing begins and vocal track to 'mime' over. You hear 2 Paul's because one is what the crowd hears, the other is what he hears so he can match the track, omitting his live mic to the PA. In that sense, he is not miming, he is 'singing' along to the rec

Thats actually very funny because I happen to have THREE….the 1st was with Talisman, 2nd with Soul SirkUS and the 3rd with Sons Of Apollo. By all means was not in lieu of ideas, just fits the bill on so many different themes.

My partner in crime is ADV who gets a lot of flack here...I gotta tell you, everything I work on with him, including my upcoming solo album which I just finished song #3 of, is ace! We have a great working relationship together and he truly is one of the best in the biz right now! BJ sings his bum off though and the band are just perfect as well, I hope others give it a spin, its literally the ki

I've had my moments, as mentioned previously, depends on the circumstances cuz I can be sweet as pie to even those I have known for decades and mood swing forces me into 'please leave me alone' mode. Point in case, many moons ago at a Melodicrock Fest in Chicago, I went into the audience to watch a pal's gig, the 1st few 'can I have a pic?' I accommodated but then started telling folks something

I respect the honesty here on this board...I think the point of this song and album are being missed...1st, I cast all the voices/personalities myself for particular reasons. I knew I wanted Eric on this album but also didnt want to give him something out of his wheelhouse. It is SUPPOSED to be a new version, a classic song done today with my favorite singers, most of whom have tie ins to Frontie

I must side with Andrew...he is a VERY smart, in tune with reality, witty, dry humour, lovely man! He would ONLY come across as an ass if you don't follow his wit and/or have never met him in person because he is sharp as a tack and loves to garner a laugh in his delivery. I stand 1000% behind his character and love hearing him speak, it is always funny and interesting as well as introspective.
