When you combine all of that material together and mix it with his time in the West End in Jim Steinman’s ‘Bat Out Of Hell: The Musical’, his star turn in Rip It Up – 70s where his performance was so strong he was added to the main headline casting, you start to appreciate that the world is ready for Giovanni Spano. Now sit back and let him entertain you!
Amazing feedback is great as you never know, you work your arse off on all the songs and then you throw it in to the world and you hope that people appreciate it.
‘Shout’ is a thumping, call to action, epic of a track, which is sure to be a crowd pleaser when the guys tour later this year. Whilst ‘Shitstorm’ has that kind of intro that you know is going to build to a kick ass tune and it does not disappoint.
Time is flying if you have fun and it’s amazing that the new Gotthard record is already the thirteenth they add to their music delivery. Furthermore, the album contains 13 songs. So it’s a lot of stuff about the ‘scary’ number.
The prize for the best title has to go to ‘Monkeys with Money & Guns’, a tongue in cheek rascal of a tune and hip in its funky blues-ness. And if you want a slice of ‘Hey Big Spender’, high kicking jollity, look no further than ‘Deep Water’ brought together with a superb chorus and hard-hitting brass section.
The hardest part at the moment, it’s all about getting over insecurities that you might have about your own voice. I can say, it’s just a matter of continuous training at the moment anything that is needed that will just help me get through especially when we are playing 12 nights back to back.
There are so many reasons why I am a fan of this project. It’s a powerful trio of some extremely talented guys. Deen Castronovo pounding the skins and laying down some stunning vocals, not hiding similarities to the mighty Steve Perry whose songs Deen performed for many years as a member of Journey
At just 35 minutes, like the premature ejaculators support group meetings, it’s over before it began. An extra track could have easily pushed this to full marks but as it stands, it still ranks as one of my top bets for 2020.
I’m still a little bummed about not getting to see them, but at least I got a brilliant collection of brand-new songs from Pretty Maids to ease my pain with Undress Your Madness. Of course. All well-wishes and thoughts to Ronnie during his fight with cancer. Here’s hoping he makes a full recovery and rebounds back better than ever. When a band that has consistently released music of this caliber, year after year, it is remarkable they’ve yet again raised the bar for fan expectations.
