omg...you guyz r sumtin else...


on this one, i was in the minority opinion with these guys. From right to left, its Paul, Chris and Josh with Christophe singing at Act IV.






a year or so later we were at it as Cancel. a few years after that it all crescendoed alongside Bob. i was the newbie in terms of experience but they trusted me enough to sing, write and play our originals while telling me all along to watch out for the sharks in the biz. So when this all took place with Ticking Time Bomb it seemed obvious to them and I couldn't deny my feeling they were right and I got duped. those fuckers. lol.

i think you'll find that it was david bowie who ripped off toc. the story involves this producer guy. i believe his name was bob.

this whole episode within the band became a bone of contention. I got along with Bob great. He's a big baseball and Yankee fan and I played the game so we hit it off. Played catch, watched games, sunset strip dinners and shit.


the band was excited to have front door access to the major labels and a showcase gig in front of us after the recordings. Ticking Time Bomb originally was a metal song. When i laid the guitar track down over the click track i thought we were setting it up for distortion later.

Bob asked for lyrics. I had no 2nd verse. ooops. Wrote 'em that night and the next day he gets me to do a vocal take. After one take he claims over his 30 years of recording, it's in his top 5 of favorites and thinks it's perfect. He shows it to Sony that night and the next day we're told we are going back to europe on their dime. Then the universe showed me what music really is and it wasn't the golden carrot i thought i was chasing.

just so you know -- my musician friends, my bandmates in Cancel, were convinced Bob showed it to him. It was like it confirmed their jaded opinion of the business they were always warning me about. I considered him a friend and didn't want to think that about him. But I hated the feeling I had they were right.

I'm amazed that you correctly identified irony for once
