interview: Carr / Kulick penned song From:
Eric Carr.com recently conducted an interview with Ted Poley
(PROPHET, DANGER DANGER).
A couple of excerpts from the
chat follow below.
EricCarr.com : You recorded lead vocals to an unfinished (soon to be
released) song written by Eric Carr and Bruce Kulick called "Just
Can't Wait". The music was recorded before Eric's passing. Eric
is playing drums and bass on the track with Bruce Kulick on guitar.
What was it like to be in a recording studio with half of the "Hot
In The Shade" KISS playing in your headphones?
Ted Poley : "Actually, I never thought of it that way! If I had, I
might have been too nervous to sing the song. It's truly a dream
I added a lot of vocal parts and harmonies (along with my buddy Mike
Ledesma on backgrounds) and its something that I am very proud of. I
wish that Eric could have heard me sing it."
EricCarr.com : How do you think the song came out?
Ted Poley : "Really well. Especially with what we had to work with,
which were basically unfinished demos. I was in charge of producing,
arranging, and singing the vocals, I sang the lead vocals and some
backing vox and produced Mike Ledesma on more backing vocals. I
think the fans will really like it; it's a catchy song."
KRR note : "Just
Can't Wait" will appear on Ted Poley's "Greatest Hits Vol 2.
which will be released later this year. Check

Featured on Gary Moore Radio Tribute .... From:
On a very special episode of the "Glory Is Noise" online radio show,
host Joel Gausten pays tribute to late Thin Lizzy guitarist Gary
Moore (1952 - 2011) by playing some of his favorite music by the
recently-departed legend, including Thin Lizzy's classic 1979 album
"Black Rose" in its entirety. This episode also includes a new
interview with returning "Glory Is Noise" guest Bob Daisley (Ozzy
Osbourne/ Rainbow/ Black Sabbath/ Gary Moore), who shares some
personal memories of working with Gary. Additionally, Joel reads a
statement written specifically for this broadcast by Eric Singer
(KISS/ Black Sabbath/ Gary Moore) and plays a special recorded
tribute message by former Bolt Thrower/Benediction frontman David
Ingram. The 96-minute episode can be heard at this location:
Earlier KISS drummer Eric Singer has released the following
Classic Rock Revisited regarding the passing of legendary
guitarist Gary Moore:
"I had the pleasure to play drums with Gary on his 1987 'Wild
"I joined Gary's band via Bob Daisley. We had recorded together with
BLACK SABBATH on the 'Eternal
idol' album. Bob arranged the audition
in London in January of 1987. We soon began rehearsals for what
would become one of Gary's most successful tours ever.
"I remember we would practice everyday at John Henry Studios in
London. Bob and Neil Carter lived in Brighton and would have to
leave in time to make their train home. Gary and I would sometimes
stay on and jam. Just drums and guitar. We would play THIN LIZZY
tunes or just jam endlessly as Gary never ran out of ideas when it
came to soloing! He would also play those legendary guitars back
then. The 'Peter Green' 1958 Les Paul and his 'Pink Salmon' 1962
Fender Stratocaster. He, of course, did not take those on tour
anymore as they had become much too rare and valuable.
"I have to say the one thing that always stood out to me about Gary
was his absolute passion and intensity as a guitarist. This man
played every song and note like it was the last time he would ever
play it. And therefore demanded and expected the same from his band.
"I have to admit he could be a bit tough on drummers. But he only
asked for and expected what he himself gave to music. And that was
complete commitment every time you played with him. He inspired me
to want to play up to his level every night.
"I will always thank him for the opportunity he gave me to play with
him. He really was a brilliant musician. And I always felt like he
helped take me to another level as a drummer and musician. It was an
experience and an education I will never forget and take with me
everywhere I go.
"God bless you, Gary Moore."

working on Rock And Roll' album .... From:
Richie Scarlet / RockMusicStar.com
RockMusicStar.com recently conducted an interview with Richie
Scarlet (FREHLEY'S COMET, MOUNTAIN). A couple of excerpts from the
chat follow below.
RockMusicStar.com: One project you worked on in 2010 was the
[upcoming] Peter Criss [KISS] "rock" album. Could you tell us about
that project and when we may be able to expect to see it released?
Richie: I did that record quite awhile back. I had a blast doing it
with Peter. I love Peter Criss. We've been friends for a long, long
time. I really wanted to play guitar on it, but all of the guitars
were already done by his guitar player, Angel, who's been with him
forever. So I ended up playing bass. I did 8 or 9 tracks on the
record. This record is a rock and roll record, and it's not like his
previously released one ("One
For All"), which was a ballad/crooner kinda thing. This is back to bitchin' rock and roll. There's some
really good tracks on this record, though I haven't heard it since I
cut the tracks. It's due out sometime this year on Sony Records. I
don't know when the (exact) release date is, as I'm actually
surprised it hasn't been released yet.
RockMusicStar.com: Many music fans/KISS fans remember you from all
of the years you worked with Ace Frehley, so to hear you working
with another member of KISS will undoubtedly make many people happy.
Richie: I went from one rebel of KISS, to another rebel of KISS. It
was always "in the cards" with Peter Criss and I, because we've
jammed many times before. When you play with someone and the vibe is
right, you usually end up recording with them. And that's exactly
what happened. I was very happy to do it, though I would have loved
to play some guitar on it. I think it's going to be a really good
record and I'm not just saying that because I played on it, and
trying to make Peter look good. There's some actually well-written
songs on it.
