UK Guitar Legend Chris Spedding Announces Brand New Album Featuring A Slew Of Special Guests Including Johnny Marr & Bryan Ferry!


Also includes Robert Gordon, “The God Of Hellfire” Arthur Brown, Glen Matlock, Deadwood actor Ian McShane and more!

Los Angeles, CA - Step right this way, folks, for the experience of a lifetime as guitar hero Chris Spedding showcases his newest, coolest action-packed, thrill ride - Joyland! Packed with more exhilarating highs and heart pounding surprises than any rollercoaster on the planet, Joyland is Spedding’s latest studio effort, his first since 2011 and his 13th original studio album overall in a career that now spans over 4 decades. Featuring 11 brand new compositions, a slew of pure rock riffs and tons of toe-tapping grooves, Joyland will be open to the public starting early 2015 courtesy of Cleopatra Records.

Adding to the excitement, Spedding has called on a number of friends and associates to help bring his newest creation to life. The album kicks off with a haunting spoken word piece voiced by the unmistakable tones of famed actor Ian McShane (HBO’s Deadwood), followed by a stunning, spine-tingling vocal performance by the God Of Hellfire himself, the one and only Arthur Brown. Former Sex Pistol Glen Matlock joins Spedding on the first of two stellar instrumental cuts, the other featuring none other than Smiths’ guitar god Johnny Marr - talk about a clash of titans! More astounding vocal performances arrive from Roxy Music frontman Bryan Ferry and rockabilly crooner Robert Gordon, both of whom make a perfect foil for Spedding’s vibrant guitar playing. Rounding out this stellar list of guests are a couple of Spedding’s old bandmates from the 1972 group Sharks, Andy Fraser and Steve Parsons, as well as newcomer Lane and another Roxy Music alum Andy Mackey. With this all-star gang of superb musicians on board, better hang on to your hats, kids, this is bound to be one wild ride!

New Age Instrumental Review: Anaya Music-AONKI – Gateway of Love (Cosmic New Age Music)

Release Date: February 2, 2018 Label: Anaya Music Website
Around this time a year ago I had the experience of listening to Anaya Music and providing coverage of Eternity.  It was an uplifting experience and a memorable listen as I recall.
Now with February drawing closer AONKI – Gateway of Love (Cosmic New Age Music) will arrive.
Once again, the recording features several exceptional collaborations between Anaya Music and a live virtual symphony orchestra recorded in the heart of Prague, the capital of the Czech republic. The orchestra combines members of the finest ensembles in Prague, including the Czech Philharmonic.
I think they should rename the orchestra to “The Live Spiritual Orchestra.” If you have been exposed to Anaya Music you will understand what that means. If this is your first journey with this music you will find out very quickly. Either way, this is spiritually uplifting music that leaves a smile on your soul. It’s like the term digital footprint, there is an everlasting m…

Jazz Fusion-Rock-Pop-Funk Review: Project Grand Slam-Trippin’

Release Date: June 29, 2018 Label: Cakewalk Records Website
This will be my sixth voyage into the world of Project Grand Slam (PGS). So, what is this experience going to be like this time? I would expect the same great combination of jazz, rock, funk, and pop that I always enjoyed.

Just so you all know PGS is: Robert Miller (bass), Mario Castro (saxophones), Bayden Goyo (keyboards), Joel E. Mateo (drums), Guillermo Barron Rios (percussion), Tristan Clark (guitar) and the beautiful Ms. Ziarra Washington (vocals).

So, now we are Trippin’ into 2018 with PGS. And the first track titled “1972” was like turning on the radio and hearing the Average White Band or Tower of Power. Yes sir, on the AM dial, it came blaring through back in those days. 

The title track is a real gas too. This number has some great sax from Castro and a killer rhythm section courtesy of Miller and Mateo. It shines the spotlight on them clear and bright. Let me tell you, those two are like the dynamic duo, kind of like a p…

New Biography on The Cars Singer/Bassist Benjamin Orr by Vermont Writer Joe Milliken to be Published November 2018!

Bellows Falls, VT – Veteran music journalist Joe Milliken recently announced a publishing deal with the Lanham, Maryland-based publisher Rowman & Littlefield Publishers to produce his first book, a biography about the late Benjamin Orr. Orr was the co-founder, co-lead singer, and bassist for the platinum-selling rock band The Cars. Titled Let’s Go! Benjamin Orr and The Cars, a release date is set for November 15, 2018.

Often considered the band’s heartthrob, Orr possessed an incredible voice, diverse musical talent and rare stage presence, all balanced by a magnetic, yet enigmatic personality, striking good looks, and a relentless determination to reach rock stardom. Born Benjamin Orzechowski (aka “Benny Eleven Letters”) and raised in the Cleveland suburb of Parma Heights, Orr was, prior to becoming a world-famous rock star with The Cars, a “teen star” as a house band musician for the nationally syndicated television show Upbeat.

A few years later Ben met his musical partner and …
