    CAR TUNE was made as a demo for my Wiggy amplifier that I designed. Blues Saraceno plays drums on this track. This was a rough mix that I recently found on a CD in storage.

    The title of this song comes from a Marine slogan, "No Beach Is Out Of Reach." The heavy-duty riff is like the soundtrack to a blockbuster film where some ass-kicking takes place.

    I played the first solo on my Brian May guitar. I intended to do some harmonies but never got around to it.

    This was a rough mix and the song wasn't completed. I don't know where the masters are so I guess it's done now. LOL

    Back in the year 2000, I had a small studio set up. I began recording some songs myself to learn about engineering. This is one of the first demos I made. I played everything but the drums.

    This is a kitchen sink demo mix. It has many extra layers that I was experimenting with. I need to find the masters so I can make a better mix one day! This song would be good in Atmos.

    I totally forgot about this song. It was a demo I made while messing around with a TC Helicon. I did some oddball vocals and made a song around them. I remember playing a Black Les Paul pro with cream P90's and I used my Wiggy amp. I don't have that guitar anymore!

    "It's Not My Problem" was recorded in 1991 during the 'Confessions Of A Deprived Youth' sessions. Somewhere around 2004 I added a few overdubs and made a rough mix. Here it is...

    The GWEECH!

    This is deep from the archives. This may be the only recording that exists of this song. I had a cat that I named 'The GWEECH!'and this song was inspired by that cat.  It's an instrumental and it was performed at the Alligator Lounge, Santa Monica CA, 10-18-95.

    It's crazy that I'm posting it nearly 25 YEARS to the day it was performed. It's from a bootleg tape of the show so the audio is not that good. I tweaked it as best as I could to make it sound better for you.

    I was playing a gold sparkle Iceman guitar. You will hear a touch of Edward Van Halen influence on this track. By a touch - I mean an insane amount!

A Collection Of Songs That Got Lost In The Shuffle...

All of these songs were recorded in my tiny demo studio between 1998-2005. I was teaching myself engineering and I made these songs for fun. I need to find the master sessions so I can revisit the mixes. I've learned quite a bit since then!

Hi Dweezil, 

I recognized that picture from a ZFT film, I recently stumbled across. If I’m not mistaken, that was your visit to Partinico, Sicily.  Have you been back to Via Frank Zappa? What an experience that must have been! 

Best, 

Eric

OH Yeah!
