Blue on Black – FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Brantley Gilbert and Bri – a snippet from the new track released today in aid of Gary Sinise’s First Responders charity. More details to follow. (SEE PRESS RELEASE AND FULL VIDEO HERE)
Long-awaited ! This is a special release for Record Store Day today Saturday. Sadly I won’t be appearing on Radio Two this morning. My horrible cold has given me no voice, so there would be little point in me going in. And I would hate to spread the germs. So I will be preparing Record Store Day from my bedroom ! “Dennis Wilson, Taylor Hawkins, Brian May, Roger Taylor – Holy Man, 7 ” Single – Previously Unreleased.
Dennis Wilson wrote and recorded “Holy Man” in 1977 during the sessions for his legendary Pacific Ocean Blue, the sole album released by The Beach Boys co-founder during his lifetime.
In 2009 [sic 2008], Taylor Hawkins of the Foo Fighters added vocals to the long-unfinished track; 10 [sic 11] years later, “Holy Man” receives new life with new vocals and additional instrumental backing from guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor.”
It’s all happening !! We actually did this track ages ago but various things conspired to keep it hidden until now. I like it a lot.
