More on Sammy Hagar & The Circle at http://www.redrocker.com/
 
Trust Fund Baby Lyrics by Sammy Hagar; Music by Sammy Hagar, Jason Bonham, Ronnie Montrose.
 
Album release May 10th, 2019.  The band will mount a large-scale tour of North America, in support of the new album, in the Spring of 2019. Full track listing and touring details to be announced Monday, Feb 4.
 
With the upcoming release of Space Between, the band harnesses the depth of their artistic experiences and seminal collaborative sound with Hagar's prolific writing vein to produce an album that builds and explodes, song after song, around the concepts of money, greed, enlightenment and truth. Formed in 2014, the acclaimed supergroup featuring Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees Sammy Hagar and bassist Michael Anthony, drummer Jason Bonham and guitarist Vic Johnson, quickly established themselves as one of the most emphatic and exciting live acts on tour today, seamlessly ripping through career-spanning hits from Montrose, Van Halen, Sammy Hagar and The Waboritas and Led Zeppelin.
 
Lyrically and musically, the collection of songs on Space Between build from intimate and introspective eye-openers to heart-pumping anthems. The music draws on the bands' substantial careers independently and collaboratively; presenting a veteran band still at the peak of their game. Sammy Hagar & The Circle will release Space Between on May 10 via BMG. The band will mount a large-scale tour of North American, in support of the new album, in the Spring of 2019. Space Between tour itinerary, album track listing and more will be revealed beginning February 4.
 
BMG signed a worldwide label deal with Sammy Hagar & The Circle for the new album, Space Between, and will also include select Hagar catalog titles.

Rock Candy Latest - STEVE JONES & SAMMY HAGAR

Artist: 
Categories: 
ROCK CANDY RECORDS has 3 new titles - all available now from www.rockcandyrecords.com
 
SAMMY HAGAR 'DANGER ZONE' CANDY334
 
‘DANGER ZONE’ WAS a particularly gutsy album that moved the guitarist towards a fuller hard rock sound boasting lashings of attack and excitement. It was a formidable album that set the red rocker up for major career advancement. Produced by British engineer Geoff Workman, fresh from recording Journey’s breakthrough album ‘Infinity’, it wasn’t the only Journey connection as both vocalist Steve Perry and guitarist Neal Schon made guest appearances helping to showcase a thoroughly impressive collection of tracks and a production that propelled Hagar’s stature ever upwards. Originally issued in 1980, the record contained ten golden hard rock nuggets enhancing his reputation as one of the most compelling and significant artists of the era.
SPECIAL DELUXE COLLECTOR’S EDITION. Fully Remastered Audio, 16 page full colour booklet, 4,000 word essay, enhanced artwork with unpublished photos.
TRACK LISTING: 1. LOVE OR MONEY 2. 20TH CENTURY MAN 3. MILES FROM BOREDOM 4. MOMMY SAYS, DADDY SAYS 5. IN THE NIGHT (ENTERING THE DANGER ZONE) 6. THE ICEMAN 7. BAD REPUTATION 8. HEARTBEAT 9. RUN FOR YOUR LIFE 10. THE DANGER ZONE
 
 
STEVE JONES 'MERCY' CANDY363
 
WHEN THE SEX PISTOLS disintegrated in 1978 guitarist Steve Jones involved himself in a number of diverse projects. Relocating to the USA he commenced building a career as a solo artist. His debut solo album ‘Mercy’, issued in 1984, was a unique and somewhat surprising statement from a man who had previously been viewed as a maverick guitar hero. The album is built primarily around melodic rock songs that, by any other artist, may have been labelled AOR. Of course these tracks provide a solid foundation for Steve to unleash some blazing lead guitar, however, the emphasis is not on power chords but carefully executed solos, helping to support the melody rather than burying it beneath mountainous riffs.
SPECIAL DELUXE COLLECTOR’S EDITION. Fully Remastered Audio, 12 page full colour booklet, 3,500 word essay, enhanced artwork with unpublished photos.
TRACK LISTING: 1. MERCY 2. GIVE IT UP 3. THAT’S ENOUGH 4. RAINING IN MY HEART 5. WITH YOU OR WITHOUT YOU 6. PLEASURE AND PAIN 7. PRETTY BABY 8. DRUGS SUCK 9. THROUGH THE NIGHT 10. LOVE LETTERS
 
 
STEVE JONES 'FIRE AND GASOLINE' CANDY364
 
THERE ARE FEW guitarists who have created as big an impact on rock music as Steve Jones. As one of the founding members of the Sex Pistols it was Jones who outlined the band’s sound, with his mountainous guitar riffs and unbridled energy pushing the material way beyond the red zone. ‘Fire And Gasoline’ really saw his creative juices flow. It was a tough and direct display of fire-power, bringing Jones’ guitar prowess to the fore. Produced by British studio wizard Mark Dearnley (AC/DC, Motorhead) with help from The CULT’s Ian Astbury, it concentrates on red hot riffs and shout-it-out-loud songs. Look out for guest appearances, most notably from Billy Duffy and Axl Rose.
SPECIAL DELUXE COLLECTOR’S EDITION. Fully Remastered Audio, Bonus track, 12 page full colour booklet, 3,500 word essay, enhanced artwork with unpublished photos.
TRACK LISTING: 1. FREEDOM FIGHTER 2. WE’RE NOT SAINTS 3. GOD IN LOUISIANA 4. FIRE AND GASOLINE 5. TROUBLE MAKER 6. I DID U NO WRONG 7. GET READY 8. GIMME LOVE 9. WILD WHEELS 10. HOLD ON 11. LEAVE YOUR SHOES ON. BONUS TRACK: 12. SUFFRAGETTE CITY

TOTO Release Lyric Video For “Devil's Tower"

 
Listen To “Devil’s Tower” Here:  http://open.spotify.com/track/1PCRrXONHBtqfxXnRL1IKc
 
Los Angeles, CA --- Today TOTO have released a brand new lyric video for "Devil's Tower."  Taken from their definitive box set: All In via Legacy Recordings (a division of Sony Music). 
“We originally recorded this track with Mike and Jeff Porcaro back in 1981 during the sessions for TOTO IV," Steve Lukather remarked.  "We never recorded a lead vocal or had lyrics for this one, so Joseph finished it up for us recently."  
The track is also available on all of the major streaming services as a stand alone single.  TOTO begins a eight show run in Japan on February 14th in Hiroshima.  The show in Toyko on February 20th at Budokan has already sold out.
TOTO will be busy in 2019. The band just returned from a standing room only run of Australia and New Zealand, and head to Japan and Indonesia in February.  This spring in to the Summer, they’ll stage a long tour of Europe, combining top billing festival appearances and headline dates, after which they’ll bring their “An Evening With” show to North America this Fall.  The 40 Trips Around The Sun tour is the band’s most extensive run in years with many more announcements to come.
Few ensembles in the history of recorded music have individually or collectively had a larger imprint on pop culture than the members of TOTO.  As individuals, the band members can be heard on an astonishing 5000 albums that together amass a sales history of a half a billion albums.  Amongst these recordings, NARAS applauded the performances with more than 200 Grammy nominations.  Collectively TOTO has over a billion streams worldwide on all streaming services.
With over 40 years together and literally thousands of credits, including the biggest selling album of all time: Michael Jackson’s Thriller, and accolades to their names, TOTO remains one of the top selling touring and recording acts in the world. They are the benchmark by which many artists base their sound and production, and they continue to transcend the standards set by the entire music community, being simply synonymous with musical credibility.  Their repertoire continues to be current via high profile usage on broadcast television.  They are pop culture, and are one of the few 70’s bands that have endured the changing trends and styles to a career enjoy a multi-generational worldwide fan base.

The Metal Voice: LEE KERSLAKE

Artist: 
Release Year: 
2015
Categories: 
Jimmy Kay from The Metal Voice (https://www.facebook.com/themetalvoice) spoke to former Ozzy Drummer Lee Kerslake in Anaheim California at this years annual Hall of Heavy Metal History Gala Jan 23 2019, where Kerslake was inducted and presented the two platinum Ozzy Discs.

When asked how he got to California to be inducted
"The phone rang about month and a half ago, it was Pat Guesaldo CEO of the Hall of Heavy Metal History and he said we would like to induct you into the Hall. Pat said we would love to have you in California for the Gala but I said I am on a pension and I can't afford it. Pat then said what if we take care of it for you . Then I said without sounding like a Deva I can't travel coach cause I have arthritis and bone cancer. Then Pat said no worries we are going to fly you first class. I nearly broke down and cried. I finally got to California, the flight took 10 hours and when I landed I said to myself, I MADE IT, I haven't done this for 22 years."

When asked about his reaction to finally receiving the platinum discs from Ozzy and Sharon and a personal letter
" We were filming me packing for California on my upcoming autobiography documentary and then my manager came in and said I have a surprise delivery for you and he brought in these two big boxes and they were the two platinum Ozzy discs, it was a crying moment. We finally buried the hatchet between the Osbournes and myself. I respect Sharon and I love Ozzy to bits. Ozzy also sent me back a beautiful letter hand written."

When asked about his current health situation
"The cancer has come back unfortunately, it has come back with a vengeance but I am not worried about it at the moment I am  enjoying this moment and all the love. I am having a great time. My doctor told me before I left they will be putting me on a new drug and I am hopeful."

Says Tim:
“Sometimes I just need to sit and think for a while…
For me, songwriting is an attempt to understand this thing called Life and how I fit into it. How to survive in a world apparently determined to set itself on fire. Do I bring a match or do I join the Bucket brigade? The answers are not always so simple.
 
Ideas usually start with a lyric, hook, or groove that will not leave me alone. It runs in a loop in my head non-stop, always in the background like a face half hidden in the shadows. (This usually happens in my kitchen by the way. Kind of annoying.) Anyway… that shit will torture me until I record it in some form. Eventually, a new record starts to take shape. Something I need to say; something that needs to be said. No-holds-barred, brutally honest.
 
In a world with so much disposable music, these songs need to stand the test of time.
 
Recording Lost in the Ether was a blast. Full of people I’ve known for 30+ years. People I came up with. People I grew up with. Old friends and a few new ones who graciously donated their time and talents to making back-to-basics rock n’ roll music. Songs for late night drives on darkened highways. Songs to dance to, or comfort you when times get tough. To make a connection when the whole world seems lost.
 
I’m really proud of this record. I hope you will dig it too.”
