Old Friends & Heroes

My solo record that I’m co-producing with my amazingly talented friend and colleague, Larry Williams, is in high gear.

We are continuing to record some of our heroes and in most cases, old friends. One of those is Michael Landau who I’ve known and worked with since 1983. He’s a Magician on Guitar and I was lucky to find a spot in his schedule.

Here are some pictures from the session at Michaels wonderful studio:

 

There are more news items to come as Larry and I will be overdubbing people throughout the summer. Much to do on this dream project. Stay Tuned!!

Larry Williams, Randy Goodrum, Vinnie Colaiuta & Steve Sykes

I am currently working on a wonderful new project with my great friend and colleague, Larry Williams.

It’s basically a Randy Goodrum solo project; however, Larry and I wrote several of the songs together. Larry’s input, production and performance on his various instruments is essential to the project. More later….

“I consider Steve, Larry and Vinnie 3 of my all-time heroes and I’m sure many of you would classify them at that level, as well.”

 

 

Here are some pictures from a recent session we did recording Vinnie Colaiuta on drums on several of the tracks.

The incomparable Steve Sykes engineered the session while Larry attended and co-produced.

We did it at a great studio in LA, Stagg Street Studio. What a great sounding room and classic API console.

“The songs themselves are some of the very best I’ve ever written (or co-written) and I look forward to releasing them to the world when it’s all done.”

More great musicians to add, etc.
