45 B-Side and Excited to Work With Drummers Schroeder and Mastelotto

Sept. 16, 2005

Life can take some interesting turns while you are making other plans. Let's just say that sometimes the bad guys win but often something else comes along to make up for it. In this case a great lineup for 45-B Side, the 45 hour non-stop jam show in Padua on Oct. 9, 10 , 11. Two of my favorite drummers are on hand, Pat Mastelotto and Schroeder, I have not played with Pat for a long time but I can tell you that Schroeder is one bad mother so the two of them together should prove to be interesting to say the least. Other guests include touch guitarist Markus Reuter, Indian via Germany keyboard man T.L., friends Ronan Chris Murphy, P. Mike III, Alex Arcuri, Pietro Valente, and many more, too many to list here. Hopefully Johnny and Penny will make it down as well. Please visit www.factory04.com for more information.

A Show on the Water, Germany, and a New Version of Spiral Out

May 6, 2005

Getting ready for a small tour of Germany and some sightseeing and visiting with friends Schroeder, Penny and Johnny. We have shows booked for the 10th in Freiburg and the 15th in Wurzburg and hopefully one more somewhere in between.


We are still recovering from “45” the 45 hour non-stop improvisation marathon which ended April 26th. There was a great turnout to see some great jams with Tony Levin, Schroeder and others and some special moments with members of the Italian band Mariposa, some ambient magic with Ronan Chris Murphy, Cookie Marenco, Tony and P. Mike III. I don’t think Cookie and friend John Capobianco quite knew what they were getting into but a great time was had by all. Thanks for the trumpet John and thanks Tony for some magic jams. I will post some photos soon of all the madness. A special thanks to those mentioned above and to Chris Boulet, Pietro Valente, Alex Arcuri, the mad man from Wales Andrew, Enrico Crivellaro, members of Astralia, Johnny B. Gomer, all the folks at Factory04, Cantina Musicali and the Region of Veneto and many others whom even though not listed did a wonderful job of contributing, just too many to list. See www.facory04.com for more information. We are planning B-Side for the fall and “78” for next year. Look out!!!


I have a local show coming up here in Padova (Padua to you in the states) on June 5th on the water near my apartment with bassman Alex Arcuri and drummer Pietro Valente.
You will see that we are updating the site with a new look and feel so check back often for new photos, news and sounds.


After a couple of weeks visit from Producer Ronan Chris Murphy we have plans for a new version of “Spiral Out” to be released in the states and EU soon with a bonus track and plans for some live recordings in the summer in LA to be used for a new release.


That about covers it, I hope.
Take care,
Willie
