Jimi: Ha!! I was singing with the band Target and we had just finished our first record for A&M Records. It was our first time in LA and we were driving down Sunset Blvd, looking at billboards and movie stars, making a hundred bucks a week and thinking…. “We made It”
On the first album we wrote some songs together and I´m sure that´s something we will do in the future as well. Most of the lyrics is about different peoples destiny,fortune or misfortune in life, the person in the songs story may be fictive or not.
Andrés: Hi ZeeZee I would like to thank you very much. It’s my first international interview promoting our debut album. I’m happy cos it’s a great chance to talk about my band Madgator, the great reviews that we are receiving around the world and talk to My Global Mind readers!
Patrick: We feel we can bring some of the arena bombast that music has been missing for awhile. Even though there are great bands already doing that, we feel our cinematic take on a live show and emphasis on lyrics & production keep it from being cheesy or “bad 80’s-like”.
“We dont have a specific vision for the music or style, I think its just a natural process for us. The chemistry, the look, the sound is all something that has evolved naturally and without much preconceived thought.”
Not for me, it’s no secret that H.S was a lot of work for me personally so if I didn’t have a problem with it I’m not sure anyone else would have. I still work with Pete almost daily and with Creighton a fair bit as well. Barry is basically out of the music biz so I don’t work with him but I consider all of them to be good friends.
I always loved the Beatles and Motown stuff and Led Zeppelin, I was also a big fan of Joe Walsh’s early work with The James Gang. I met him way back when we were recording at a studio in Florida. He had already joined The Eagles and they were huge.
Rock Sugar is a Los Angeles based band known for their covers of pop music from the 1980s in a hair metal style. The band’s backstory claims the sound was achieved when the metal band was stranded on a desert island in 1989 with a CD player, plenty of batteries and the CD collection of a 13 year old girl.The band signed with the Paradigm in April 2010.
I think I was a really good technician but sang way too high, I wish I had the realization that came in the mid 90’s a bit earlier, but we didn’t really ever have a top level producer during our hey day to give us that sort of direction and with that said, time brings maturity and I am always striving to get better.
