Making records with legends

Whenever I'm  getting ready to make  a record, I start by calling my friend Malcolm Lukens, who I just talked to, he just came off a tour with Malissa Ethridge with Guitar Shorty. Malcolm is a blues legend on keys, he played on Roy Buchanans albums, and you name it in the world of blues. I was his best man at his wedding, and we have a lot of fun playing music together, we have done tons of shows together, from the whiskey agogo to Viper Room and acoustic clubs all over town, Malcolm is obviously an amazing keyboard player, he lays down some amazing bass lines on my tracks too. On my last record he surprised me by bringing Maury Baker in the studio for my song Silver Dollar, Maury played drums at Woodstock with Janis Joplin, also on her Cozmic blues album, he also played with Frank Zappa and Jimi Hendricks, Maury performed with me at the Viper Room just a few months back, and I will probably get him in the studio on my new record for a few tracks, I feel like a Beatle when I play with these guys ha. I also always call my friend Kellii Scott, he is probably the best modern rock drummer out there definitely my favorite, Kellii is a member of the band Failure, we did a song for a movie together, he called Andy Troy to produce the song, one thing about Kellii is he knows everyone, Andy did Matchbox 20’s record, a Rod Stewart album… the list goes on. Kellii played drums on so many hit records from Christina Aguilera, Pink, hole. Queens Of The Stoneage, you name it, anyway… it's always a blast hanging out with him, getting him in the studio, and we have done some pretty amazing live performances together as well. I don't want to leave out my friend Rob Canny who is another great drummer who has contributed to my solo career in a lot of ways, he played on my song To Late "Broken” and we actually tracked most of it at his studio in Santa Monica, he played with me at my first solo show with a band at The Rainbow on Sunset Blvd so much fun, He recently joined In The Led, a tribute to Led Zeppelin and has been touring with them. On my album The Last Song On Radio I called my friend Joe Steals to co-produce it with me he played guitar with Lizzy Borden and produced his Starwood album. Joe is a real talented guy and I think we made a great record, we had a lot of fun making it. Well it's time for me to get in the studio I will keep you posted on what I'm recording now, in the meantime I'm going to give you another free track called Silver Dollar From The Last Song On Radio, no strings attached… we went retro on this one and brought in Maury and Malcolm… It was a blast.
