Angel Say No (Hard version)
Angel Say No (Hard version) Genre: Classic Rock
Tommy Tutone song. I tend towards the offbeat songs. Everybody does 867-5309. Three Strange Days is by 90's band School of Fish, Sounds Like Cheap Trick.
I Need to Know
I Need to Know Genre: Rock
Short, simple & hard. The way I like it, Tom Petty rules.
Three Strange Days
Three Strange Days Track number: 3
A cover song by the band School of Fish. I'm on bass and vocal.
Restless Track number: 4 Year: 1985 Genre: Classic Rock
More early Tom Petty. With me on guitar and vocals. Same line up as Balinese.
Mama KinThis is a recent find. A first run thru of Aerosmith's Mama Kin by Blank Czech. Me on bass and vocals and Chris Hicks on guitar had played with song over the years and decided to try it as something new and with Doug Billingsley on drums, who had never worked with it. Not knowing all the lyrics the vocals drop out in places. In fact we totally fell apart in the middle but removing 10 seconds of confusion made it coherent. We apparently were having such a good time we ended it twice with Doug thinking we were doing Hendrix.(just joking). One of these days I'm going to overdub the whole vocal or maybe not. Chris was doing backup vocals but I recall his mike was turned off but I can hear him trying his heart out at the end. Enjoy.
