You know how it works...you're playing your beloved tele, a riff comes out, you start working on it, record other instruments, cut, paste...and within a couple of hours a new song is born. True, but in this case it would have been an incomplete song if I hadn't had the idea of sending my draft to my good friend BossHook.
He listened to it, liked it, wrote these beautiful lyrics, and sung the way he sings...
What an amazing artist, he turned a rough idea into a real song, apparently effortless and naturally.
And, as usual, we had a lot of fun, which is not bad, isn't it?
Thanks, John, for your help, your talent, your competence and for being the nice human being you are.
I have only one regret: living on the other side of the pond, I can't play with you live on a stage.
This tune is an homage to the music me and Boss listened to when we were kids, and still love to listen now: good old Rock'n Roll. If you listen to this tune, you'll easily recognize our main influences. smiley

Enjoy!

BossHook: Lyrics, lead and backup vocals, lead Telecaster
Fromano: Music, backup vocals (oohs and aahs), guitars, bass, hammond, piano, drums programming, glockenspiel (yes...glockenspiel!)

Just a thought: today it's my first Icomp anniversary (iCompleanno, in italian).
When I signed up, 1 year ago, I had no idea about how sweet an experience this would have been.
I've met exceptional people here, talentful artists and "real" persons, who played with me, had fun with me, gave me pats on the back in my worst moments.
They all mean so much to me, because my life is much fuller than it was before I clicked the "sign up" button.
Thank you iCompers, thank you Icompositions. Thank you with all my heart.

Fulvio

milesgloriosus Listener Non too funny... Icomp just cut my comment.
It talked about the unbelievable (unparalleled) "naturality" of your creation phase, about the fact that the so called rockstar did forget how to create "good rock", about the marvellously appropriate voice of Barretok.

Well strike me down! 1 year already? Seems like I've know n you forever my friend!

You know when The Italian Stallions get together-- you know it's gonna tear stuff up! (Had to censor that-- but you get the drift! smiley).

This is wonderful.

My only comment on this song which is sooooooooo damn close to perfect is that the bass needs to be up the mix and maybe the vocals back a tad. That way that sweet organ would get some prominence it deserves!

Damn this good!

A blast of Bruce! If they still had boardwalks this would be the anthem. Nah, this is all Boss (Hook, not Springsteen) and the Fro-tone. Power lyrics, well sung with heart and strength. Good swelling chorus.

anch'io sono cresciuto con questa musica nelle orecchie, anche se i miei gusti mi hanno poi portato altrove, ma, ragazzi, qusta è roba veramente da accaponare la pelle! semplicemente perfetto, classico rock'n'roll senza la minima sbavatura: festeggiare un compleanno così non è un lusso che si possono permettere in molti! ...Poi ci pensi tu, Fulvio, a tradurre per John ... smiley

Dontcha just love it when something this extraordinarily good arrives? It feels like it just had to be exactly this way - the whole thing just works perfectly. You two make it look effortlessly easy - which of course is an illusion because this is the embodiment of two really talented guys and as close to really true professionalism as I have heard around here. Great stuff - thanks.. Les

Ok so production would have been a 5 but the dropdown won't let me put it in. Straight excellent on all of it. You guys put together a fantastic rock and roll tune. I hear Springsteen, Meatloaf (with no cheesiness), and I definitely hear Tom Petty in there. BTW the drum work in here is awesome! Much respect to Fromano for putting that together! Respect to all the players. This is brilliant!
