“I am so excited about the direction of the new album. I grew up influenced by the blues, and the great blues-rock singers – Paul Rodgers, Robert Plant, David Coverdale, and Ian Gillan…I wanted to get back to the basics: great songs with great vocal performances.”
I was engaged to my idol, a man that I looked up to and worshiped like a god. Turns out he’s abusive, I never encountered abuse.
Our second chapter moves away from the band, the reunion and future albums (New album due out on Frontiers records in May 2016!) and begins to look at the more personal factors that impact Dan, his friends, his family and his country. More importantly, he is passionate about the world and its ongoing survival. To much for one man to take on you may think… that doesn’t stop him providing valuable insight into what we can all do to better ourselves and more importantly better the lives of others.

So you know what happens to the rest and I have this little funny philosophy that when a song has its own energy, as much as I want it to make it to that record, if it doesn’t it means that the song and the energy behind it which I call God or the Angels say it’s not ready to come out into the world yet. I usually record 16 to 18 songs per each record, back in the old days you could put 12 to 15 songs on a record no problem, nowadays unless you’re a pop act it’s kind of smart to not put more than 10.
2013 is great! I’ve received numerous nominations for Words Left Unsaid including the Artists In Music Awards, Hollywood Music In Media Awards, LA Music Awards and Indie Music Channel Awards.
I really had to fight for that, because it was my own dog and I was just on TV on General Hospital and I told the record company I wanted to put my dog on the frontcover of WORKING CLASS DOG, but they were like… what a stupid idea as they wanted to put my face on the cover, so I really fought for that
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”
