DON FELDER Set To Release Second Single, “Wash Away” (Featuring Styx’s Tommy Shaw), From ‘Road To Forever’ Solo Album

DON FELDER

March 18, 2013 -- DON FELDER (@donfelder) has joined forces with Styx (@STYXtheband) singer/guitarist Tommy Shaw for the second single, “Wash Away” from FELDER’s second solo album (and first since 1983), ROAD TO FOREVER, released October 9, 2012 on Rocket Science Ventures.   The song, which hit radio airwaves today, was co-written by FELDER and Shaw, and features Shaw’s signature vocal sound.

The singer/guitarist/songwriter/New York Times best-selling author/four-time Grammy® Award winner’s critically-acclaimed ROAD TO FOREVER debuted on Billboard’s “Heatseekers” chart at #27.  "Girls In Black," the album’s first single, reached the Top 30 on the Mediabase Rock chart.

Speaking with Sterling Whitaker at Ultimateclassirock.com about the track, “there were a couple of songs on the album, including ‘Wash Away,’ that I had built the track pretty much top to bottom and there was a couple of areas where I needed some lyrical help and I said, ‘I’ll just see if Tommy (Shaw) is in town.  I’ll just have him come over and listen to this and see if anything bounces off of him.’  He listened to it and loved it and we sat and wrote lyrics together that day for that song. And then he came back the next day and I said, ‘Well, you’ve got to sing some of these parts while you’re here,’ because he was getting ready to go back out on the road with Styx.  So we set up a mic in my studio and he sang some of the harmonies on a couple of songs, ‘Wash Away’ and ‘Heal Me.’”

As Tommy Shaw continues, “The best songs to write are the ones that just roll out of you and you look back and wonder, ‘Where'd that come from?’  That's what it was like working with DON.  There was a natural chemistry there.”

A Look At Dave Grohl’s Classic Rock Credentials

E-mail Print PDF

DAVE GROHL

Considering he gets to hang with his idols all day, Dave Grohl has a pretty cool life.

Most recently, he’s been playing shows with his Sound City Players, featuring Stevie Nicks, John Fogerty, Cheap Trick‘s Rick Nielsen and Rick Springfield. His documentary, Sound City, features interviews with all of the above, as well as Neil Young, Tom Petty, producer Rick Rubin and Barry Manilow. And the film’s soundtrack features Nicks, Fogerty, Nielsen and even Paul McCartney.

Although Grohl comes from punk rock beginnings (before joining Nirvana, he played in D.C. hardcore band Scream, signed to Ian MacKaye’s Dischord Records), he’s been rolling with classic rockers for a while, despite being a generation or two younger. So we decided we’d go through his classic rock credentials and roll out the highlight reel. READ MORE ON RADIO.COM

ROLLING STONES

March 14, 2013. The ABC&D features Charlie Watts on drums, along with pianists Axel Zwingenberger and Ben Waters and upright bassist Dave Green. A post on the Stones’ website mentions, tantalizingly, “Expect the very best in blues and boogie-woogie (and perhaps a surprise or two) in one of the world’s best jazz clubs!”

His group, The ABC&D of Boogie Woogie, will perform on March 23 and 24 at the Pizza Express Jazz Club in London. Rolling Stones fans have been waiting for months to find out the band’s tour plans, and while rumors have been circulating about what their plans will be, one thing is certain: Charlie Watts will be hitting the stage, albeit with a different band, later this month.
