wait right standing. Welcome to nonstop Rock talk. It is a pleasure to have you on the show.

spk_1:   1:07
Baggie ties. Nice to be here. Thanks

spk_0:   1:09
for having me. No problem. So we're looking at three days until the release of your very first soul? Well, 12 weekends. That must be an amazing feeling. An achievement.

spk_1:   1:21
Did she admit for me? I think it's something in the back of my mind always wanted to do, And I

spk_0:   1:27
finally

spk_1:   1:28
did it. So looking forward to their respond on it,

spk_0:   1:33
you

spk_1:   1:34
know, as we uh, you know, I tell everyone it's not that one its own found. I guess that's been pulling down in itself. Be put into a This is a category, anyway.

spk_0:   1:51
Yeah, and it's, I mean, from my take on it, it's more. It's got more pop sensibilities to it. And it's Ah, I mean, when I wrote my review, these rocks on

spk_1:   2:02
it, it wasn't my intention to make a good part based record. You know, a lot of solos and leave.

spk_0:   2:09
Yeah,

spk_1:   2:09
um, it was more about, you know, like it's been one of pop songs, I guess. Played a little heavier.

spk_0:   2:14
Yeah, and I mean, let the let the songs do the talking kind of kind of scenario. All right.

spk_1:   2:21
Yeah. Yeah. Oh,

spk_0:   2:25
that's awesome. So so tell me a bit of a bit of recording product process. I mean, I understand that you produced the album with Mark Cabin Iton. Um, are also works. Worked with Dave Root of Tesla on his soul. Well, lucky That was a killer release. So you worked with him on it?

spk_1:   2:41
Yeah. Yeah, I got to hear a route that will really loud, you know, Um, but, uh, market the, um he's a musician himself in Fresno, and he is a full time turning, made a really interesting criminal law attorney. And, uh um,

spk_0:   3:02
I got

spk_1:   3:02
hooked up with him. I met him years ago. He's friends with the guys, and and I have a friend in the cabin. Um, I hooked up with Mark, and, uh, you know, we're both limited on time. So that's why the album called What? Weekends? Because that's about what it took. And it wasn't consecutive either. It was a long drive from my House president two and 1/2 to 3 hours when I went out there, and, um, we just didn't know until we stopped. And basically, I mean, I could have paid a lot of stuff and fix things, but it was so difficult. Thio communicate with them, Really? They have any changes? Does, you know, big stain. Um, but it was it was easy is a good guy. I was just doing a studio, and we have a good time and, uh, you get it right now.

spk_0:   3:57
That's fantastic. No. Now, going into the recording in the production process was ever a plan in place of what you felt. The album should sound like I mean to me, I find the elm has an earthy cosmic five. Hence, why I feel there are similar is that he's freely to, like aces. First solo, and I kind of got that from

spk_1:   4:18
Well, that's cool. Well, you know, it's not a big budget recording. So, um what? I wanted todo um you know, I kind of I kind of wanted down kind of, um older, like am radio. Anything like it played in mono was so good. Do

spk_0:   4:34
you

spk_1:   4:36
kind of like a compressed down? Um, I had my idea of what I wanted to hear, but, you know, I really had a lot to do, so I kind of left everything tomorrow. Um, because, you know, I didn't play bass and a little bit of keys and, uh, working out the background vocals and all that is really the guitar was kind of lead. Guitar was laughed, but I had a lot to think about. What kind of left out to him. Um, you don't put it together and make this out.

spk_0:   5:12
You know,

spk_1:   5:12
I could go with with an intent on what I wanted to sound like one of the queen and sweet, you know these things. But, you know, he doesn't know what happened.

spk_0:   5:21
No. And I think I mean, I hear some of that in there to, um I don't know. I think I think more or less my impression in the East really thing was because I always thought aces vocal has its own identity because no one sings like And I thought when I heard your vocal on it that there was so much identity there, that that's why I made that comparison as well. There. It was kind of that, um I don't know if it was this space. It's not really the space feel But Ace just had that way on that 17 album of trading that vibe.

spk_1:   5:56
Uh, that's great.

spk_0:   5:59
Yeah, I go. I do, too. And that's that's probably why I loved something. Well, I love the album. So my, um so rich Carlson played drums on the album. I didn't know until you told me yesterday, um, that he had played with Paul Sortino and bad boys. I actually own not CD. Um, yeah. And he had written a book called Twisted Drums. Troy. Look, had I not done a forward on it once is cool. Um, yeah. And I understand you guys go all the way back to high school.

spk_1:   6:35
Yeah. Maniacal together. In fact, the first man that was in high school with Ridge and actually the original guitar player, John Mathews and bad one. I went to high school with him, too. I was in a band with him and rich, and it was a great man. Those guys. I went to a new high school from a different area and they took me in and we had the best time playing house parties. Backyard already. The height will in your show. Who's the lot?

spk_0:   7:04
Must be a hell of

spk_1:   7:05
a good many years later to have replaced. Great

spk_0:   7:11
as that's amazing. You guys must've been a pretty good band that, I mean, with the players that were in that band even back then.

spk_1:   7:20
Uh, yeah. You know, my high school was a rock'n'roll high school. You know, Rick's brother, Kevin Carlson. Great guy, no longer with us. God bless them. But he played with all the Nova uncle when all this broke because you're feeling Canadian, right?

spk_0:   7:36
Yeah.

spk_1:   7:37
Um, man, I remember those days. That was great, you know, because we had a real rock star in our neighborhood.

spk_0:   7:46
That's cool.

spk_1:   7:46
And he's a great guy, a great player. Um, and then also, there's a drummer. I don't Have you ever heard of, um, Romeo void? Uh, go, uh, he A's. They had a song. Never say never. It was a pretty good hit alternative. And with a drummer, he went to the school well, and our school and then the drummer battle on Jamie. And we just pulled him, um, playing missing a few people. That Yeah, the rock'n'roll article for sure.

spk_0:   8:20
That's pretty

spk_1:   8:20
fast. Original on high.

spk_0:   8:22
I can just picture that my mind, that's pretty cool.

spk_1:   8:27
It was literally just like that.

spk_0:   8:29
And I mean, I guess that even the scene in the bay area back on, I mean, it must be pretty cool, too with I mean, of course there's wine. T you think it is when I think of the Bay Area, I think a y t so

spk_1:   8:45
Oh, yeah, We were really close to them. You know, from yesterday today they were very things and hard rock in the area, you know? And then you have thrash big, brash, bright. And there's just a lot of music, period, Um, a lot of venues to play for the seabed. And, um, yeah, it was great. Now I was playing in place in service is gonna call the older, and I would open for one and be in wine and cheese. Crowd was like the Raider crowd, man, they were traded throw stuff at a lettuce as we would you choose that tonight? There's the dinner that I won. The letter would come out.

spk_0:   9:27
That's unbelievable. Oh, man. And I mean, you mentioned the Raiders proudly. I just have to imagine like how our people have wondered how people were taking the fact that they're moving again. Like that's just that's to me. That's crazy to take the readers that,

spk_1:   9:43
you know. I don't know. It almost seems like it. If there was enough for one day, but I'm working it. Um, I remember from when I was little. I remember meeting some of the Raiders in the neighborhood. You assume that lives by me. And, uh, that's old school football. You know, those guys didn't make very much money, and they were all so hurt, you know, under thirties Ford. Yeah, but

spk_0:   10:08
this is all coming out now. Kind of thing whole enough. It'll sitting night part of a sword?

spk_1:   10:17
40 Niner country now?

spk_0:   10:19
Yeah. Yeah, I guess that's kind of never mean what the 40 Niners going to the Super Bowl too, And I mean, their legacy of theeighties as well. So

spk_1:   10:28
yeah, I was there with all that.

spk_0:   10:30
That would be cool people. Did you ever receive Joe Montana play? Then

spk_1:   10:35
I did. Yeah. And I went to the parade and city when they won. Uh, it was really cool.

spk_0:   10:43
That would be awesome. Um, So what I find intriguing about the album getting back to that is it's your thought process in terms of the lyrics. For instance, asset Flame, your synopsis in a previous statement was the inspiration of a set aflame came from the memories of trying to sleep when I had a fever or the flu. It sucks. So about in the nightmare is never ending. Um, I think that's that's kind of impressive. You're pushing the envelope lyrically. I mean, what can you say about some of the other lyrics? Were possibly your, um you went a little bit different than the North.

spk_1:   11:20
Well, I wanted, you know, being that I had never written, really written we're not not full long Anyway, we're saying, um, I didn't want to do the you know, Friday night No. One party or the, um, you know the love thing to my do a lot. You know, I love the turtles from the band, the turtle. You know, there's there's a few bands that were talking like that. So I just thought a little stories in my head, and that's what lyric came from this story. You know, just like little move many movies and like in my brain and, ah, you know, having flu dreams, something that almost everyone has.

spk_0:   12:04
Yeah,

spk_1:   12:04
uh, could be a hangover drink jail.

spk_0:   12:06
I had those before,

spk_1:   12:12
but, um, yeah, lyrically, you know, I'm kind of a punter. Do. So it's kind of fun to come up with lines like that. And I didn't spend a lot of time doing it, which was really nice. It wasn't a real struggle for May. I just, uh I just kind of did it, you know, even the demos. I just thought of the ideas and came up with a song recorded him then, um and that was that. Then I'm going in the next one.

spk_0:   12:38
That's fantastic. Um, I I would assume you're still in contact with about long guys. Um, have they heard the album?

spk_1:   12:47
Yeah. Uh, Jamie, I went to Nam, and I thought Jamie there the drummer.

spk_0:   12:53
Yeah,

spk_1:   12:54
it. Yeah. You heard it. Um, you may be the only one. Okay. I think there may have heard a couple long I heard from Rob since that big that you mentioned. Um, yeah, and it was right, but, um, yeah, he moved. He lived in Southern California.

spk_0:   13:15
Yeah, because he retired, right? I believe.

spk_1:   13:19
I don't know. I don't know. I don't know. what happened with

spk_0:   13:23
E? Yeah, but I believe that he came in and said he had retired on Facebook. Wow. And he was moving. It was moving on, And I actually haven't seen him on Facebook in quite a long time. So

spk_1:   13:41
yeah, I haven't either. He was on to something else, you know? But I play with Rob and Derek. For years. It was in a cover band. We travel, we had a great, you know, the funny thing is, there he didn't He wasn't even in the hard rock back. That

spk_0:   14:02
really

spk_1:   14:02
we would have to fight. The plates were being songs. You know, this is like the real early eighties. He, uh I guess he he was in a in a rock band, and then he, uh he changed the style like stray cats. Remember him? Load the street? Yeah. We would have really try and get him to do some odd hard rock.

spk_0:   14:25
That's interesting, considering I mean, on the first album, the songs that were written on that first elf Omar leg, you know, in your face and kind of, you

spk_1:   14:35
know, years later, you like a lot of different styles. So that's good.

spk_0:   14:41
Yeah, Oh, no. And I was fine. I mean, he's doing that the, um, the blues thing he's doing down. I got an advance of that all morning. Came in. It was fantastic. It was really good.

spk_1:   14:51
Yeah. Yeah. Great. Is that,

spk_0:   14:53
um So when When you left bobble on 80. Was this where you were going towards was to do this old? Well,

spk_1:   15:06
Yeah. I had wanted been wanting to do it for a while, and, um, they wanted to go a different direction than me. That was one of the, you know, to go back. You know, John Matthews is really the Ogi original guy from when they were persuaders. And then they were babble on. And what happened was John Master Band when they were recording. So I was in a band already, and we were working on a deal with Simmons record. Oh, yeah. I love the band that I was. And, uh, but when the Madeira call me and then the management called me, I thought, Well, I'd better just kind of go for the sure thing, you know? So so then I moved down the aisle in Hollywood and I recorded the album and going from there. And then the van changed the name of Babylon A d Getting away on the final battle on 80

spk_0:   16:09
kids, right? Yeah, because it was so liver sweaters. Or he went John, that's funny.

spk_1:   16:14
Yeah. Yeah. Later. Anyway. So, um, those guys wanted to go the direction in which I felt was backward, going full persuaders. I wanted what happened When I heard that rat record you got called. I really loved it.

spk_0:   16:29
Which it will be the last one,

spk_1:   16:33
Uh, the last one call

spk_0:   16:35
infestation, I believe.

spk_1:   16:37
Yeah, I think that's the one. Yeah, um, I really liked it. Like the way it sounded

spk_0:   16:42
me 10.

spk_1:   16:43
A big fun, Great in the plains. Great. And that's what I wanted to do. If we're going to do something new, I want to go away and have 1/3 party producer that's not connected to the song and pick two plays. What? And you know, kind of go the way the traditional way, it hard. I don't want to go back where you want to go forward. And that was my my opinion. I mean, but then was going fine, But that was their history of the persuaders and that wasn't my thing. So, you know, gracefully bowed out,

spk_0:   17:21
right? Most disappointed. And he left actually. Well, I was I was because, I mean, I've got to meet you guys in Pekin. And I was I was told I had never seen Bobble on 80 and I didn't think I would ever get the chance to see them. So seeing you guys play live was just It is one of the highlights of that weekend for me. So, um, well and and I love your playing as I told you that night. So when you left, I go, Well, that's anyways, it is what it is, and I totally get it.

spk_1:   17:57
Yeah. Yeah. That was a good show to remember. Yeah, the last guy did.

spk_0:   18:02
It was but that was a really good show. I had a great time. Remember, Black and Blue? I think they came on before you guys and they were really left really loud. It was like, Oh, my God. But

spk_1:   18:19
what am I favorite bands from back in the day? I really liked

spk_0:   18:24
me too. I really enjoyed them. I would really like him too. I saw them at any three last year, too. and they were fantastic. So I've always been black and blue fan. There's just They were really loud. I don't know what it was. It was like the one guitar and was really loud. I think that could have been what it wa ce. But then you guys came on in it. It was all good. Um, no, I'm curious about your influence. Is growing up? I mean, in connection with the album? Would you say a lot of your influences came out in your song writing on this?

spk_1:   18:58
Yeah, Yeah, um, the turtle grass root level that the beetle line the family stone. Um I love Earth, wind and fire all those things. And, you know, when I think of that, the group of songs, the album, just, you know, part of it, I'm a dental for what is wrong that we have another album written. And so the whole group of song has all those influences, I think, but I really I really like cheap trick. And I'm like, don't tell Tyler. I think I know probably some of that influence as well.

spk_0:   19:37
Yeah. Here. You know what? I didn't think of a stone temple pilots until you until you mentioned it. Maybe like minutes. Still untenable. Pilots more. Maybe the second and third album. Because the 1st 1 is kind of different from the other stuff. Yeah,

spk_1:   19:51
yeah,

spk_0:   19:54
yeah. It wasn't. It was just a It was more of like an Alice in chains.

spk_1:   19:59
Yeah. Grungy.

spk_0:   20:00
Yeah. And then they kind of progressed.

spk_1:   20:04
Didn't capture the beauty of Scott Weiland, Melody and boys. Frank is a favorite melody maker. That was incredible.

spk_0:   20:16
Yes, I never I never got to see him. I never got to see him with SCP or Velvet Revolver and actually played in a STP tribute band for a little bit. Yeah, that was That was kind of interesting. Someone asked me if I would do it, and I said, Sure, I'll take a stop about it, but didn't end up working out because their drummer quit. I was going into Toronto when I lived an hour away. So going into the city was just, you know, it just wasn't feasible for me at the time, But But it was fun to play the material. Um

spk_1:   20:52
oh, yeah, Jam. Right now, some guys were playing a lot of fun.

spk_0:   20:58
Yeah, And you don't you don't realize how many songs there are that were, you know, they were on the radio until you start going through the catalog, right?

spk_1:   21:09
Yeah, The delay. Our brothers are incredible down.

spk_0:   21:13
Yes,

spk_1:   21:14
the base plane is. I was like, no one mentioned that about Manny. He's great. He's playing with fingers and then

spk_0:   21:22
seeing

spk_1:   21:22
the guitar for dinner. Just, you know, he doesn't have to play a lot of solos. His rhythm plain incredible. The quarters that he played their different

spk_0:   21:31
yes, and is in the safe. Yeah, he's there. A great man. I understand that used to play with Robert Fucile from Skid Row at one time to before they started, which was it's just kind of,

spk_1:   21:44
you know,

spk_0:   21:45
Yeah, it's just kind of curious to wonder if there's any material like they're of them playing with him. Those like that would have been eighties, obviously. So,

spk_1:   21:55
yeah, I think they're called Mighty Joe Young right now that

spk_0:   21:59
I don't know, maybe maybe I'm not sure. Maybe they were. Is that what it's? Don't STP was originally called. Yeah, that's cool. I learned something so changing the subject a little bit. We're talking about your influences. I read that you had actually tried a forecast when Ace left.

spk_1:   22:22
Yeah, I did.

spk_0:   22:24
Wow. Get

spk_1:   22:25
with Great. Because, you know, I was just thinking about that. Um, that was only a few years after I saw him the first time in the old control of him, and it blew me away. The show. Great.

spk_0:   22:39
Yeah.

spk_1:   22:39
You know, I think I would, I don't know, maybe 15 or 16. Yeah, the out of the band after that big time and then, you know, here in the live album so many times it was great. And you don't know anyone they looked like at the time. It was the rule surprise. Really nervous Thio to meet them. But But yeah, we got the damn songs and we worked out a new stones. And, um

spk_0:   23:11
so this way, man, this would've been creatures here. Or was it?

spk_1:   23:18
Yeah. I think that, um no, it was looking at it, I think with the 1st 1 they put out

spk_0:   23:25
Okay,

spk_1:   23:26
I think it was. And then the the new song that we worked on, I think there was some on creatures out.

spk_0:   23:32
That's cool. Wow. Don't What? So how old would you? You must have been very, very young.

spk_1:   23:41
Uh, maybe, uh, 19. Maybe with the

spk_0:   23:46
wow. Yeah, Yeah. I couldn't imagine walking into that room and like seeing them for the first time with it. With makeup on, that would have been I never been thought about when I when I wrote that question. Thank you. Because no one knew what they looked like.

spk_1:   24:02
Yeah, it was hard not to be a fan, so I, um you know, I talked to him a little bit, and I remember all Stanley was dating Donna Dixon and actors. Pretty blonde. I don't know about that. Um, I think Jean was probably the most talkative and, uh, that was allowed to, man, That s sorry. Our studios in Hollywood, in a bother me up with the marshal, he turned up so loud and pointed it toward them. Yeah, but And the rest is history. Her history.

spk_0:   24:45
Yeah, but like Vinnie, Vincent wasn't around anywhere. Like I mean he was. I think he was kind of in the equation, but he wasn't like, hanging around while they're trying to get tired players or anything like that.

spk_1:   25:00
Oh, were they? I'm guessing that maybe I was the only one that day. It was the heart of day. There was no rush.

spk_0:   25:09
Yeah,

spk_1:   25:09
and and working on your stuff. So, yeah, I may have been the only one that day.

spk_0:   25:14
That's pretty

spk_1:   25:15
cool. Yeah, it's funny how, you know, I guess on people that have auditions last When he was Really

spk_0:   25:27
I am. I interviewed Doug Aldridge last year, and he actually mentioned that he had tried it for kisses. Well, around that time,

spk_1:   25:36
Yeah. Yeah, they're pretty powerful. So I'm sure they got any one candidate.

spk_0:   25:42
Yeah,

spk_1:   25:43
they have.

spk_0:   25:45
So did they. Did they call you after to tell you are

spk_1:   25:50
No, they just, uh they said that management got ahold of years like that. I don't remember if they called. I don't think they did. Um, you know, I don't remember if they did or not.

spk_0:   26:05
I mean, that's cool.

spk_1:   26:07
I didn't think I didn't think I had

spk_0:   26:10
Really? That's That's awesome. That is an awesome experience. Yeah. Wow.

spk_1:   26:19
Give me all that. It was kind of ah, of a dream Thio. True?

spk_0:   26:25
Yeah, just I mean, to say you got to play with him is I mean, for a 19 year old kid, too. That's that's really cool.

spk_1:   26:34
Yeah, I know.

spk_0:   26:36
Now I also read and I didn't know this, that you wrote three songs for Clive Davis and arrested rockers that charted and did very well where these, like these were bobble on songs these air. Like where these like pop songs, hard rock songs?

spk_1:   26:50
No, leave her balance on what happened. You know, in the first hour, right on.

spk_0:   26:59
Yeah.

spk_1:   27:01
And outside Writers on there. And, uh, I'm man grated Be out there, writer for, um, there's no reason why we can't do it ourselves. I really fought hard Thio not have me out that people look by writing a lot of fun, You know, all that go through wise and, um yeah, prove everyone, you know? Yeah. Luckily, happy out. I wrote that.

spk_0:   27:33
Yeah, I was actually looking at nothing sacred today and seeing your song writing Christ on there. And you Yuko over with Derek. Quite a few of the songs on there. And I mean, I love both. I love both the albums. I just I find that that albums is different from the debut. Obviously because the song writing's in a different from different people. Um, yeah. I find that one's got a little bit more death, and it's got its a little. There's a blue zero feel which I think I from knowing you're playing. I think I kind of attributes some of that to you.

spk_1:   28:12
Yeah, I know.

spk_0:   28:14
Like a song like home. Bad blood, for instance. I mean, that is Ah. Remember the first time I heard that song? And I thought Holy cow about is that is an amazing song. No. Cool. Yeah, very well. Did, um were you Did you listen to a lot of that blues based rock as well? Did you Were you influenced by a lot as well, too?

spk_1:   28:42

spk_1:   28:56

I've always been a fan, like, I mean, going back to like Cinderella, For instance, when they came in love, Tom Keefer did. And what he brought to the table with uses, you know, like, brought that blues element in Iraq. And I just always I've always liked those kind of bands.

spk_0:   31:30
That's awesome. I am actually Damon Johnson from Brother Cain, and he's doing a solo thing. He told me he actually used to follow Pat Travis Travers around when he was, like, 15 years old. He loved, um, not much strain. You show up wherever Pa Travers wanted, Pat Travers got to know who he was. And I guess now he still remember. Sue is from all those days from being a fan, which is kind of cool that way.

spk_1:   32:01

spk_1:   32:30
but, uh, you know, also, um, we have a lot of the band was really wild trade. It's funny because there's the one in the wild, crazy bad. And then when they got it, um, you know, their pay for damages thing and we were on. I forgot where you were with Rhode Island or something in a parking lot. And a couple guys got a fight on the bus and the girl from the label got punched accidentally.

spk_0:   33:03

spk_0:   33:49
But

spk_1:   33:51

spk_0:   34:15
Yeah. The roof is the roughest killer. Just that And my my my wife was wasn't about She didn't know about 1 80 And when we came to came to peek into rock in school, we bought that lot. The lost session, see? And on the way home, Dr Toronto, we probably listen to God's song 10 times She go out? Yeah, she just loved it. She's like, I stand to this day. She still loves that song. And when I when I mentioned that we were talking today and I said, you know, low blood and she's like, Oh, I love that song. But so, yeah, it was I mean, by the end of the trip, like, I probably didn't want here for a few more of it for a few days. But and and I believe you guys did it that night. To which was which was cool.

spk_1:   35:06
Yeah. Yeah. We resurrected the phone and live in it.

spk_0:   35:11
Yeah, it's a down cycle tune. Now, um, I have to make mention of mark marks of honor. It was He's your brother in law, right? Correct. Yeah. Yeah. I love what he's doing. And I fully support his work. And you're the one that turned me on to him. Um, have you guys ever thought about clobbering collaborating together or have you?

spk_1:   35:35
Well, he's been, uh, I'm in Northern California, and he was a Southern California. Okay. And, um, I would love to Yeah, I would absolutely do it. He says in a stolen van, and they're replacing date because he'd be great to play with me, but it'd be difficult to put that together, But, you know, playing his life in.

spk_0:   35:55
Yeah, but,

spk_1:   35:56
uh, he's a he's a monster player. He's so different for me. Yeah, I wonder what would come out of it, you know, But, you know, at the same time, you know, I can play heavier stuff, too. I mean, I can go right back and write Babylon songs, or even heavier than that. I love the child, and I love the sound of music that Marc Place filled with gold. You know, I just saw ultra Bridge and like, and like, oh, Friday night and man, I was blown away. God, there. Incredible. And they couldn't have been any better.

spk_0:   36:30
And

spk_1:   36:30
that is so hasn't been perfect.

spk_0:   36:32
Yeah,

spk_1:   36:33
um, you know, you know, it rather they like, I don't know.

spk_0:   36:39
But,

spk_1:   36:39
you know, when you come down and have a coffee, you get back down there with her soul, you know?

spk_0:   36:46
Yeah, they're I mean, Olderberry just fantastic band. And I mean singers, amazing guitar players. Amazing. Whole band is amazing. So totally concerned why they would have never seen them in that kind of actually makes me if they come here to go see them. So hearing I

spk_1:   37:04
highly recommend it.

spk_0:   37:06
Okay, But

spk_1:   37:07
I was like, you know, Mark style music really killers, and I wouldn't want to play that kind of music sometime.

spk_0:   37:14
Yeah, he's, um Yeah, he's It's two different from what you played what you places. But it would be fun to do that. And I'm kind of the same boat as you like. I do listen to a lot of different music. I don't just listen toe like eighties all this high mind. I'm kind of a kind of makes it operate, actually. Yeah, I have Miles Kennedy's last solo album, and it's It's totally different from Slashing. And Alter Bridges is a totally more eclectic album that you wouldn't expect him to do is a solo as a solo artist. Yeah, and, um, for part of me,

spk_1:   37:55
he's incredible. Uses perfect. Is playing great. Do such a great

spk_0:   38:02
Yeah. Yeah, because I see I believe online. I seeing him and, um marked Romani do I think it was high. We started together, and I was He blew me away. Wasn't Wow. He is smoking

spk_1:   38:17
like he doesn't take any breaks. Two big band.

spk_0:   38:21
Yeah, Yeah. He must never be home. Okay, So are your in in terms of promoting the album? Do you plan on doing any story?

spk_1:   38:32
Well, um, I have a band together when it's very hurt. Yeah, I would love to play some show.

spk_0:   38:38
Uh, I don't have high expectations. Too high of expectations. Um, I think hopefully there'll be some good response to the record and hopefully some interest in booking. Is that what? Yeah, but I'll be ready for that. But when it happens, that's fantastic. So I'm assuming the labels very supportive. And they you know, they, um they're cool with you going and touring and whatever and giving you this party up. Yeah, well needs.

spk_1:   39:14
Yeah, yeah, yeah. It's distributed within groups, which is a really good distributor, which is a branch of universal.

spk_0:   39:25
No, Let's go, Tasha.

spk_1:   39:27
Yeah, Yeah, that's encouraging. But, um, you know, it's like any independent, you know, someone at my level. So what you put into it so I love thio. Get more interest than Thio record another record.

spk_0:   39:44
Fantastic. Yeah. Um, is it what for? Masses will be available in

spk_1:   39:54
there'll be a digital and CD will be some CDs. Um, it'll be available at iTunes and basically everywhere.

spk_0:   40:03
Okay, so we'll be well, the CD be available on Amazon. I would take it.

spk_1:   40:08
Yeah, I think it could be available on Amazon and maybe some mom and pop stores that sell these.

spk_0:   40:20
Yeah, that's a dying thing now, right? The good thing is the the vinyl stores air coming back here. These things pop up every so often, and but the CDs are harder to find.

spk_1:   40:35
Yeah, some people are just that. That's all they want, You know, for me, I like both the only Havel.

spk_0:   40:41
Yeah, I'm kind of seeing boat. You know, it's nice to help out. Download on, you know, on your phone toe. Have that. But I also liked out the physical copy as well.

spk_1:   40:52
Yeah, Yeah, it is a little the new computers or laughed out. Don't have you need any more there?

spk_0:   40:59
Yeah. I actually had to get a two by a separate drive for my laptop. Yeah, and probably when I put the request in for it was their work. And I had to put the request in to get this disk drive. I'm like, you can't mean there's no destroy life. How am I gonna bring my CDs to work and listen to him? But I shouldn't say that to you. I shouldn't say that, but thats is the way it is, So it's all good Well, Danny are I appreciate you coming on the show, and I wish you the best of luck with the album.

spk_0:   41:55
I mean, Olivier at Sleeved Rocks is working diligently all the time. I mean, the amount of bands contact him and people that, you know, he sports a lot of new music, which is fantastic. And he's always he's always asking me, um, like, say, a new Bandel coming. He's like, I know you don't really like new bands, but do you want to go check this behind it? So I just kind of stuck in my way sometimes, but yeah, it doesn't mean I'm not into new music. It's just There's so much, so much there. Right? And I just kind of like I support what I know because I know it's hard for everybody, right? Uh, yeah. So
