Thank you Helsinki and Tampere (shown here), Finland! Your winter wonderland is beautiful and Finns are nice folks. One more Finland Aristocrats show tonight in Jyväskylä, then it's off to Istanbul... ... See MoreSee Less
SPANISH PRESS: Still grateful for the last few outlets publishing reviews of "Scenes From The Flood". Here's one from MetalSymphony.com (in Spanish). More good stuff for my Mom the retired Spanish teacher to kvell over.
This also honors the Spanish spirit of doing things a little later than the rest of Europe. The latest start time I ever had for a gig was with Wayne Kramer, in Vigo, Spain, in 1999. We went on at 2:00am. Rock and roll, baby. ... See MoreSee Less
BLACK FRIDAY RECOMMENDATION: If you dug Nili Brosh’s amazing work on the lead guitar of “World Class” from “Scenes From The Flood”, you ain’t heard nothin’ yet. Her latest solo album “Spectrum” is available for pre-order now (link in comments). It’s really, really good, and quite diverse as well. Check out this video clip of her soloing on a cut from the album, and follow her on your favorite social if you like.
This Thanksgiving I’m especially grateful to all of the incredible musicians who contributed to “Scenes From The Flood”. Nili was one of 25 people (and that’s just the musicians!) without whom the final album would not have been possible.
And, of course, I’m grateful to you for all of your support. ... See MoreSee Less
