Fans and friends,
As of last week, I made the decision to officially leave Z Records due to a few new
musical opportunities that could help me to further my career a bit more to my personal
liking. My parting with Z Records was a mutual separation, and we have parted as friends
with no animosity from either party. The "Z artist's press release" that
everyone has seen, had nothing to do with my leaving Z. This is a decision that I have
been thinking about for quite some time, and my parting coincidentally happened during
I still have hopes to release a new album this year, but until things can be sorted out
with a new label, the release of my new album will be delayed a bit longer. I have high
expectations that the new album will be out this year, but there may be a possibility that
this is not the case as I am still unsure at this very moment where I will call
"home" as my label. Negotiations with several label's that are interested in my
material are in the works, but we have not made any decisions at this time nor do I have
any guarantees. I will post an update as to what's going on as soon as I find out and it's
etched in stone.
I appreciate everyone's support for sticking by me in the wait for this new album, and I
apologize for how long it's taken to get together, but some things have been way beyond my
control. I'll post any new news as soon as a decision is made and keep you all updated on
my progress. Hopefully these new possibilities will work out in my best interest, but if
not, I feel good inside that I followed my heart and got the chance to pursue them. Wish
With much love,

Sorry it's been a while since I had any news to report. That's because I've been hard at
work on the album of the year!!!! :-) The band has FINALLY entered the studio for the post
production (final recording) of DanziLand, and things have been going exactly as planned
thus far. The pre production of the album (the test recordings to see if we liked the
ideas) was done in my studio, and it really went well! So well in fact, we thought of
releasing the stuff to the label! Evil Alger (Z Records President) even gave me the
"Evil Award" for the pre pro stuff I sent him. So you can all look forward to a
killer album as promised.
As I stated some time ago, we rented out a pretty killer facility in Berlin NJ called TMP
Records, owned and operated by none other than Wayne Davis our bassist. Wayne is a far
better engineer than I'll ever be, and his studio takes us away from our everyday norm
here in DanziLand. Wayne will be engineering, producing and mixing this album as well. I
got to the point of being way too involved with my material, and didn't want to be totally
behind the wheel pushing the buttons and sometimes missing the obvious. So Wayne will be
taking care of us this time around, but I'll be close by working with him side by side. We
originally had the studio booked for October, but a few unexpected happenings transpired
(beyond our control, honest!) and we were forced to cancel our arrangements. Now that
stuff is all behind us, and we're where we need to be. Tempo maps (to help us keep time
while we record each part) were created a few weeks back, and I started tracking guitars
on Monday of this week. I should be done with my parts by the end of the week and Andy
will go in next week and do his thing. I'll be tracking Phil from DanziLand as my studio
has a few weapons that will benefit our TMP recording as far as Phil's parts are
Timmaay will begin live drum tracking on February 1, and then we sing! YAY!!! I'll keep
you up to date with full studio reports as they transpire. Again, I humbly apologize for
the time it's taken to release this album, but I felt I had to lock in with the right
musicians first. We all know how tedious and useless auditions can go, and sometimes you
think you have the line-up, and a few months later, you're searching for members again.
Though SLIT is my baby, you would have most likely gotten SLIT II with a more mature
songwriting approach if I would have given you another album of me doing everything.
Though that's not a bad thing in my eyes, I felt I owed you all something better than what
I could achieve on my own, and quite honestly, I didn't want to do another album all by
myself. It can make you not want to do this anymore, for the stress factor is overbearing.
Our One-list group moderator and vice president of my fan club, artist, photographer,
writer, sweetheart, (God you got some talents K!) Karen will do the CD jacket artwork,
credits list etc. We look forward to having Karen work on our stuff, and we feel there is
no one better for the job. I'm so excited K!!!!! :) A photographer friend of Karen's, (and
now our friend) Ellie from Roving Eye photography, will do our photo shoot sometime around
February 9. Ellie's work can be seen at http://hometown.aol.com/rovingeye3/ so make sure
and check out her work....SMOKIN!
What you'll have here when things are fully completed, is what I believe to be my destiny.
Where I should have been all along. A collaborator and team player with band members that
are equally as talented as myself in different areas. The sound will definitely be
"Danzi" but it will NOT be remotely close to SLIT other than huge hooks and
guitar solo's....and of course killer back-ups.
Thanks for your support and loyalty through all this. It's really made this come together
for me knowing so many were there for me as friends and fans. Not to mention your patience
and belief in me and the guys to deliver a killer album. We know how loved we are from the
kind e-mails, live gig support, snail mails, and album sales, so we're going to love you
back and totally kick your tails with this one! Thanks again for making this all come true
With much Love and Admiration,
January 8, 2002
The information about a show on January 9 is a rumour. They asked Danny to play songs from
the new album and SLIT and to do a Q&A. The next thing you know, they have him playing
live on the 9th of January on some paltalk yahoo and net nightclub thing. The servers
never got back to Danny as to whether this was a go or not and someone decided to print
this news and now it is everywhere. So, the following information is NOT true at this
DANNY DANZI FREE SHOW:
Danny Danzi will perform a free show over the internet on January 9. This will be
broadcast by paltalk from 7pm US Eastern Time. Danny's s set will include tracks form his
first album 'Somewhere Lost In Time' and his upcoming second record 'Danziland'. The show
will be followed by and Q&A session with the whole band.

Welcome to the list my friends from Japan! :) Another special thanks to everyone for their
support on our show last week. Michele and Karen for the awesome promotion and support,
Deb, Barb, Brandy, Ellie and all our families and friends. But I also want to take the
time to thank a few individuals who really make this whole thing wonderful.
Of course they are the band. It's very rare to have 4 best friends in this world, let
alone 4 guys in your band you consider brothers. The guys have went through the pains of
hell for me to get to where they are now, and quite frankly, you wouldn't have the album
you are all about to hear if it were not for them. I would have never played live at this
time presenting the show in my own vision without my own band. These guys are as equally
important to what we have here as I am. Yes as long as I'm in the band it will have the
Danny D sound, but they've enhanced what I'm capable of and brought it to the next level.
All the songs on this album with the exception of Eternity, Time Passes By and Just a
Matter of Time, were completely written and arranged by ALL of us.
Phil Buckleman's lyrical abilities (and phat board lines) have taken a huge burden off of
Andy and myself and he adds an interesting twist in the mix.
Andy and I are pretty similar lyrically (except his grammar is more proper than mine LOL)
but Phil takes a slightly different approach and it compliments us and brings us to the
Wayne's ability to rag on us and keep us focused so we don't repeat things that have
already been done are (anal retentive LOL) a blessing for freshness in our writing, not to
mention his producer skills, vocals and AWESOME bass work. Timmaay's arrangement ability
and vocal ability separate him from a normal "beat the skins" drummer, and his
sense of timing surpasses old Roland (who we've fired 30 times now) who is a machine!
Andy's record speaks for itself. Being my right hand man, (hmm that doesn't sound right,
get your minds out of the gutter!) his writing and arrangement capabilities also add to
the sound of what we do. In my eyes none of these guys are replaceable, and this is the
first time I've been in a band of this caliber. Their playing, determination, writing
skills and awesome humanity set's them apart from the all the others in my past, and in
some of the major acts today. So a sincere thank you to my awesome band for putting their
lives on hold for me. They went into this thing saying "You're the boss Danny we're
here for you and have a job to do" and I come out of it saying "You've done the
job well, WE are the band, I'm just the name that got a foot in the door." Thanks
guys, you rule!
Michele and Karen for their intense support, promotion and for putting their lives on hold
to give us our little slice of heaven on the net, as well as a well informed game plan to
keep everyone up to date on everything. Your hard work is greatly appreciated!!! As George
Martin was said to be the 5th Beatle, Michele and Karen are for sure the 6th and 7th Danzi
to this organization, and we love you both very much and thank you from our hearts. And to
the friends and fans that have been a part of this list, and our lives. Without you, there
is nothing but talented individuals gifted by God with no means of transportation of our
music. Part of us will always write music because we enjoy it, but that other part will be
thinking of all of you as we do it, asking ourselves if this is something you will approve
of. We never want to let you down, so you are every bit important and in our hearts as we
write material. You are our inspiration!!! Thank you everyone, have a wonderful and safe

NEW SHOW - DECEMBER 1, 2001
In light of the terrible disaster that struck the US, what the band and I had planned tour
wise for Europe has been put on hold for now. We were hoping to do a lot more shows over
there, but things are a bit scary traveling wise, so we'll hold off for a while. I do
however have a few US
gigs in the works, and we're keeping things up close and personal yet again. Before the
band goes out and really hits hard with massive gigs, we want to do a few of those tune-up
shows while we complete the new album which will be called "DanziLand." I got
another show booked at a place in my home town of Williamstown called the Alpine Lounge.
The show will take place on Saturday, December 1, 2001 at around 10pm, so come on out and
party with us, will ya?! We will also be performing more material from the new album, as
well as your favorites from "Somewhere Lost In Time."
The Alpine Lounge is located on the Blackhorse Pike (also known as 42 South) in
Williamstown NJ next to Canal's Liquors. We hope to possibly do 2 sets, or one big long
one. Come out and party with us and meet the new band if you missed us last time at the
Star Cross. For those of you familiar with the Alpine in the past, the management is
attempting versatility with live bands
in the room, and we will be the first to bring great music back into the club as it's been
more dance oriented for the past few years. The Alpine has been around for many years, and
has had a good name in town for all the years I've lived here. It's time we bring live
music back and in and give the people what they've been asking for. So come on out and
hang with us, you won't regret it!!! Contact Joe or the staff at the Alpine for questions,
band bookings or directions at 856-629-2424. I hope to see you there!!!! Thanks for your

The band is set to go to England to kick some butt on August 24th, but before we leave our
shores, they would like to invite you to see them at a special place they call home for a
Well be at a great little place (new and improved thanks to Lori and staff!) called
The Starcross Tavern on August 18th. It's on route 555 (Tuckahoe Rd) in
Franklinville/Newfield, south Jersey. Lori (owner of the Starcross) and I have been
planning this for quite sometime, and things are finally in place. This is going to be
quite an awesome event, and the first time the band will play live as a unit. My previous
European tours sported a back-up band selected for me by the record label. This time I got
my own guys, a new album in the works (due out Nov/Dec) and an awesome live show. We'd be
honored if you could make it and party with us if you're free that night!
The night will kick off at approximately 8:00- 9:00 with my good friends Cry Wolf. They
were kind enough to offer us a spot to play with them so we could test the waters of our
live show before our England trip. Cry Wolf is a must see classic rock/southern rock band
with a taste of today. They will open the first set and we will follow with approximately
1:15-1:30 minutes worth of original music from both "Somewhere Lost In Time",
and my forthcoming new album "DanziLand". Cry Wolf will then take the stage for
the last set and the band and I will be partying and hanging out for the duration of the
night. You might want to get there early for there will be press and several of the bands
friends in attendance as well as the awesome following of Cry Wolf. For more information,
directions (written out below) or just to say hi to Lori and the staff, call the Starcross
Tavern at 856-875-9455. I hope to see you there!!!!
Well it is Franklin Township. I guess you get mixed up because there is a Newfield Bank on
the corner there...it's confusing to a lot of people. If you really want to get technical
(In case anyone asks, Star Cross is actually a small town of it's own! It is governed by
Franklin Township (as is Franklinville, Malaga, Janvier, and more). Or official address is
Franklinville 'cause that's our post office. It's 4454 Tuckahoe Road, Franklinville NJ.
From Phila: Walt Whitman or Ben Franklin Bridge, follow to 42 South. Stay Right of the
Atlantic City Expressway through Turnersville. When you see the Walmart, Make a Right turn
onto Rt. 555(Tuckahoe Road). The next traffic light will be a 6 road intersection...be
sure to stay on Tuckahoe Road, which is basically straight ahead, making sure the
"shed" place is on your right. Continue on Tuckahoe Road going through two more
traffic lights. It will look a bit rural,,,don't be alarmed the cows haven't mugged anyone
yet! You will go around a bend and thTransfer interrupted!
Cherry Hill and Surrounding Areas: Take Rt. 73 South, follow to Berlin Circle, and
continue to Rt. 73 South (3/4 around cirlcle). Go pass "84 Lumber", and you will
see an off ramp..Williamstown/Sickerville. Follow this road (Sickerville Road), for about
8 miles, eventully coming to Route 42. There will be "Geet's Diner" on your
right. Continue across Rt. 42, go through the next traffic light (Rt.322) and follow to a
stop sign. This is now Tuckahoe Road. Make a left. The bar is one mile on the left hand
side. Or....Go to Berlin Circle, Take road between McDonald's and Palace Diner. Go across
Rt. 30, you are now on Cross Key's-Berlin Road. Stay Straight on Berlin-Cross Keys Road
eventually crossing over Rt. 42 (Sam's Wholesale is on the Left). Continue to the next
intersection. Bear Left...but not a sharp left, onto "Tuckahoe Road (Rt.555). Follow
for 41/2 miles going through two traffic lights. We will be one mile pass the second light
(Rt.610), on the left.
Atlantic City and South: Atlantic City Expressway to Williamstown-Sicklerville exit. Make
a left after exiting ramp. You are on Sicklerville Road. Continue To Route 42.
("Geets Diner is on Left). Cross over, and go through the next traffic light
(Rt.322). Continue to the STOP sign. Make a left. This is Tuckahoe Road (Rt.555). We will
be one mile on the Left.

Hey hey everyone!!!! Sure has been a long time hasn't it? Well, so much has been goin on
here! It's been quite a ride, I can tell you that! I know, I posted a few different times
who was going to be in my band, posted a few pics etc. Well some of that has fallen by the
wayside, and other changes have been made. We recently did an interview with
Mayfairmall.com, and thought this would be the right time to announce the REAL band. So
let me catch you all up with exactly what HAS been going on! Here goes.....crack open a
beer, soda, coffee, cigarette, bong, blunt, line, you know the drill....it's gonna be a
long one, so enjoy however you enjoy these things! :-)
"The Hiring of the Band"
Due to the stress and mental anguish caused by doing a complete album almost by myself,
(not to mention touring with a backing band that didn't get much time to rehearse with me)
I made the decision to at least hire some guys to either play on the new album (as hired
guns) or form a complete, and permanent band. The band thing has always been my dream. My
strong points are in collaboration and being a team player. But when you can't find the
right people, you do what you have to do to get the job done, and get your music heard.
Well I opened up my black book and called the finest musicians I knew, and tried to build
the ultimate line-up. Guy and Joey DeFalco were 2 of the hottest (Guy drums, Joey bass)
players in the area. Their mix of funk, rock, progressive and metal, were the strong
points I was looking for. On boards, Fran Wood was hired on account of his great back-up
vocal ability, and in the pocket keyboard lines. We're a guitar band; the last thing we
needed was a lead player keyboard player with an ego. Fran was perfect for the job! On
rhythm guitar, my long time bud and one of my best friends, Andy Slostad. Of course you
know he played a couple of instruments on SLIT, wrote a song, collaborated on a few, and
wrote some lyrics with me on that album. We had worked before in a previous version of
"Passion" my first band with me as the lead singer.
"Building the Family"
The meeting of meetings took place on February 2, 2000. We all decided we were going to
"go for it" as a unit, and I presented the guys with "Danny's Rules to make
this work". We went over them, and they knew exactly what would be needed from them
to make this work. A nice little jam in my studio took place that night, and all of us
felt the magic in the air. We had some pretty heavy hitters in that room that only knew
me, and not each other. The first 2-3 jams that came out of us were pretty insane! How I
wished I would have had the tape machine running! The jam ended, and the band took the
rule pamphlets I made home with them to discuss with their families. The next meeting that
took place the following week, brought a few questions to the table. We got through all
the things in question, and again made a pact we would follow things through. Rehearsal
times were discussed, and this is where we had our first dilemma. Joey and Guy were in a
pretty successful family business that needed attention, and they wouldn't be able to
practice with us as much as we thought was needed. So we tried to work it by their
schedule as best as we could.
The rehearsals were not going as well as we thought they would. I basically had a part
time drummer, and a bass player that just couldn't seem to make our project fit in with
his busy life. Joey could no longer contribute to the project, so we parted ways and
searched for a new bass player. Wayne Davis (the guy that helped me master SLIT) was
contacted and decided to come over for a meeting with us. He liked what he heard as far as
our expectations, the material, and the personality of the guys. He called the next day
and said "I'll try it Danny and give you 100%. Practices started, and we found our
part time drummer just wasn't going to be enough for what we all had in mind. I was pretty
much at the end of my rope on this situation, and felt this was going nowhere. I called
the guys up and said "I think we should bag this project because I have an album to
put out, and I've wasted enough time trying to get this together." I contacted
everyone and decided to just gather my thoughts on this whole thing for a while. As I got
myself together, thinking on the best thing to do in this situation, the guys began to
call me and feed my head with the things I needed to hear. We decided to give things one
more try, but this time find a full time drummer. Attempting to write with a drum machine
playing in the background, was a nightmare! I even went through the torture of
re-recording all the drum tracks from SLIT so we could practice along with them. So this
went on for quite some time. Playing the old songs, trying to get to know each other and
still that album deadline approached me with little material finished. I just didn't want
to do another album by myself! I didn' t want to be one dimensional and sounding like my
past album. I was sincerely hoping the guys would bond together and become a family with
me, but little was being done unless I did it myself. Were they scared? I gave them full
control on their writing. I made it known I didn't want puppets on strings. I wanted a
family, a unit, a band. After several months, we still had no drummer and the band was
definitely losing morale and patience. We tried out quite a few drummers, and a few of the
guys liked a few, but I still wasn't content. I needed to be more than content!
"The hiring of Timmaay!"
Just when we were on our last leg, an e-mail came through from a person I'd known of, but
not known personally. His name was Tim Lloyd, and he lived about 10 minutes from me. My
Vice President Karen, had put an add out for me on a few sites, and Tim saw it. He
mentioned how he had played in a band that had played a few shows with my old cover band
Skeleton Crew. I remembered his band, and remembered his awesome drumming. He sent me a
mp3 he had, and we really liked what we heard. So Tim came over one night and played along
with us to songs on the SLIT album. It was a killer night, and he made the band sound
great. But I still needed more. I asked him to learn a few more songs, tighten a few
things up and come back in a week. He did, and at the end of that night's rehearsal, we
had a meeting and welcomed him into the band that weekend the end of January 2001.
Here we were almost 1 year into this project, and it had definitely taken its toll on all
of us. Especially Fran. He was a "by the book" type of guy, and had really given
his all into this thing. With Tim in the band, I felt this was our new start. A new
beginning to what we all wanted. So on the first practice we had with Tim officially being
in the band, I ripped into each member telling them what I expected from here on out, or
we'' have to bag this once and for all. We had an album that was well overdue, not much
help from the band at that point, and again I felt like all the weight was on my shoulders
to get this thing done. Though you can all say ""but Danny, you are the guy
signed and the one that is supposed to write the songs", that wasn't the case here
any longer. I never wanted to be a solo artist; it just turned out that way because I
never could find the right personnel. So after that pretty nasty meeting, (what a welcome
'eh Tim?) I felt everyone was on the same page, and we knew what we had to do from here on
out. I got a call from Fran the next day and he basically told me "it's just not what
I want anymore." Our stagnant progress had taken the bite out of Fran, and he had
decided to leave to pursue a project with his wife. So once again, it was audition time,
or was it?
"Even more problems?"
After Fran left, the last thing I wanted to do was start trying out people again. I really
was bummed out to be in this situation, and knew this would definitely set us back not
only in the keyboard area, but the back-up vocal area Fran was so good at. Andy had played
keys for years, but I didn't want him to be burdened with having to perfect 2 instruments.
I talked with him about it, and he said he was up for the challenge. So Andy worked on the
keys (which he hadn't played seriously on for a few years) and his guitar skills which
also needed work for he hadn't REALLY played in a while. But it didn't take him long to
get things up to par, and he made the switch from guitar to keys back to guitar, quite
fluently. Keep in mind guys, I'm not an easy guitarist to play with. I have a tuning issue
that will make even the greatest guitarist you can name, want to shoot me! So hats off
Andy for a job well done dude! Things began to move rather nicely, but that other vocal
still was missing. One time on a break at rehearsal, Andy was playing some guitar to a
Vertical Horizon song. When he started singing, Tim started singing back-ups in harmony! I
was like, "what the hell?!" Tim, you can sing? Like really sing? Like as in
harmony? And he says, "well, you never asked!" So that was the answer to the
missing back up. Though we don't want Tim singing too much due to the killer drum parts
that may suffer from this, we worked it in quite nicely. Things were going well, the band
was forming the family thing, and I felt this was the best bunch of guys I could ever
find! Not only great musicians, and multi-talented, but wonderful human beings! When I say
multi-talented, I mean just that. Andy plays guitar, bass, drums, keys and sings. Wayne
plays bass, guitar, keys, and sax. Tim plays drums, guitar and sings. Quite a unit huh?
And they all do this pretty fluently. Where was I? Oh yeah! Things were going well, and we
were all quite content. The writing was going fair, but a little slow. I still felt I was
doing a bit too much on my own. We had a little meeting and things seemed a bit better. As
we were working on a new tune, my mixing board started acting funny. We tried to milk it
as long as possible, but it eventually died and this really set us back! I definitely
thought of driving off a cliff at this point, trust me! Have any of you ever tried to
unwire a 24 track mixing board? Hehehe, you're looking at 100 plus cables to hook it up,
and a total nightmare to take it to get it fixed! Wayne owns a beautiful studio (which we
will record the new album in this year) but he was so busy we wouldn't have been able to
rehearse there. Rehearsal studios around here were pretty booked up on the nights we
needed, so this definitely put us back a few. I started looking for who could fix my board
and maybe make a house call so I wouldn't have to unwire anything. The calls I made to
several audio repair shops said all the same things. "You're board is no longer in
production and we can't get parts, so you'll have to send it back to Germany!" I was
like what?!!! You can't be serious? But they were! *Plays "Taps" for the old
mixing board, which was only 2 years old!* Insert my trumpet sound here. :-)
"What's new today"
Rebuilt my studio with all kinds of goodies, new board, new everything! This took quite a
few weeks to wire up and test, but it was well worth it. It cost me quite a bundle, but
God does things for a reason and I'm better off now than I've ever been as far as my
studio is concerned. The band is now actively writing both songs and lyrics at a very
steady pace. I've got the family I've always wanted, and am in the perfect situation all
across the board. We've nearly finished the pre-production stages of the album, and have
been working like crazy! We have been writing at least one full tune a week, and hope to
go to post-production by the end of April or May. This album is really going to be
something special! The crap that we went through to get to where we are now has made it
all worth while. A slightly new direction in a few songs, but still rockin and hooky like
you expect from me with plenty of guitar! Not to mention 3 fantastic musicians that have
contributed their efforts as well. So you're now officially up to date with everything
going on for the past year here in DanziLand. I sincerely apologize to everyone for the
delay of my album, but as you can see, I think I have a pretty good excuse for making you
wait on a better product than you got last time. And that's all I want really. Your
happiness, and an awesome album everyone can enjoy. So hang in there, the best is yet to
come, and that's a promise!
Thank you all for your friendship and support!

during August 2001. The little guy will also be making a special live appearance with his
brand new backing band to coincide with the release within Europe, more details to follow

September 29, 2000
I found this article in the summer issue of Rock Report and I thought it would be
interesting to add to the web-site....Great review with picture. See it in the
"Concert Reviews" area.
DANNY DANZI BREAKS THE SILENCE !
Danny has been locked away in the studio in preparation for his forthcoming follow up to
1999's "Somewhere Lost In Time". Earlier this year we gave you a sneak preview
of one of the possible tracks to be included on the forthcoming as yet untitled release.
The track Eternity was a demo and Danny wishes to assure fans that his new album will have
major league production ! Those of us here at Z can confirm that Dannys pre production to
date has been staggering, and that his new album will be one of the album of 2001 ! More
news on the man soon.
September 4, 2000
Added the full length MP3 of Eternity to the downloads page.

Z Records will be opening an on-line shop to get your CD's. www.zrecords.net Karen did an
on-line interview with Wayne Davis (bass player for Danny), you can read it at OneList No
word yet if Z Rock USA has been rescheduled :-((( That's it for news because Danny's been
very busy in the studio. I have been on an extended vacation, so there hasn't been much in
updates. I'll see if I can some new pictures and video when I visit Danny. Hope everyone
is having a great summer, I sure am!!!

Z 2000 USA:
Our Lawyer did not get a reply last week re a contract adjustment for our Z Show in the US
which we had been waiting for for several weeks. More and more red tape has been thrust at
us each month, and because of this we have made the decision to freeze the NJ show. We are
making every effort to still put our showcase within the US on this year and will post
some more news shortly. Our friends within the USA can rest assured that there WILL be a
show.for up to date news visit www.zrecords.net

Hey guys....Just to let you know a little of what's been going on. Bassist Joey Defalco
will no longer be with my band and has been replaced by none other than my good friend
Wayne Davis from "The White Alice Project." Wayno (as we sometimes call
him....not to be confused with Whino...the man doesn't drink) and I have worked on a few
projects together where I played some guitar and drums for his band. We got very used to
one another at a rather fast pace and became great friends both spiritually and musically.
He also was the guy that mastered SLIT if by chance you noticed the name. Wayne walked
into our rehearsal and really played up a storm! At the end of the set I said....."I
have nothing to think about" outloud, and that was followed by the rest of the guys
chiming in the same. What a great night for us! Two nights after that, vocal rehearsal was
held and all I can say is we will turn allot of heads with what we are capable of vocally
in this band. By far the best I've ever worked with in all my years of playing. The songs
on SLIT sounded exactly like the album back-up vocals, but stronger. The powerful voice of
big Wayne threw our already killer back-ups, over the top. In short, this band may be the
best band I've ever been in. The talent that is present during rehearsals is something
I've never had before in an original band. These guys want to rip your faces off...there
is no question about it. If things continue to go well, I will most likely invite them to
play and write on the forthcoming album. If that works out well, we'll change the name of
the band. Did I just say that? I must really feel good about this....do I sound excited?
;-) Be well and enjoy your weekend everyone! Safe journeys to those traveling!!!

We will be changing servers in the next couple of days, so if the web-site is down, it

Thanks to everyone that sent in their entries for the Phone Call Contest.
Winner of the contest was Carol Bittman.
The winning entry was:
In my life I've loved and lost, but always had my dreams. I've given up so many times, and
never thought I'd find love again, but now whenever I hear this song (which is a lot) it
brings home to me that anything is possible. If a relationship that starts off with
friendship grows into love, but somewhere along the way one or the other people need space
to "find themselves" then you have to let them go; hoping that they will find
their way back to you. If they do, then it is meant to be, if they don't then you can
always hold them in your heart, because you will have that special bond that brought you
together in the first place. That is what makes the dream all worthwhile in the end,
especially if you are lucky enough to find and hold on to it, no matter what.
