A collaboration with Brad O' Neill. Here is the original instrumental by Brad on his page. fandalism.com/braddles/ehG2 The last time we met was a day So long past now faded away. I still think back to the day when we first met Moments in time you cannot forget So many people I've known Friendships they come and they go When that day finally comes for me To see long gone friends and family Time goes on Years move fast I know we can't remember everything I know that life isn't a granted thing There was a light for you A light so divine I asked my friend to come And help you cross the line So people say there's no God Some people thing we just "are" Some think we are drifting like random stars Randomly drifting a far I'd like to think there is more I hope to see you again I'd like to see all my long lost friends I want reunions that never end.

Saturday night was momentus, as Bill Russell joined us for a jam. It was the first time Bill, Dave Tylicki and I have played together since 1988. Hank, our lead guitarist was absent so I had to improvise on lead guitar, a very wild line up since Bill used to be the lead guitarist and here plays bass. This was our first run through of the Rolling Stones classic with Lori Tylicki singing a killer vocal. We did a few dozen songs, including me later on bass and Bill on guitar. Dedicated to Senior Paul!!!

So "Senior" Paul sent me a drum and guitar riff reminiscent of Stones and titled it Paul Tumblin Down. I immediately imagined a Stones Beatles hybrid style of song and recalled a McCartney song called Love Comes Tumbling Down...and it went forward from there. A free-styling improvised rocker by "Keef and Charlie" and my second collaboration with "Senior" Paul. A tribute to Dinosaur Rock.

One of my first posts on Fando was a song called Long Lost Love, which I wrote for Bill Vignari. I think Bill has some major fans here, because that version has a large amount of views and none of my others (besides Bill's vocals) come close. My brother and I decided to do our own version. We met up in Syracuse last week and touched up the mixing and mastering. I don't expect to come close to that, but we do hope you enjoy it.

I couldn't get everything, but I think I added a little Italian seasoning to this great little ditty. I'm not much of a drummer, but I wanted to hold down a beat from my digital kit.

Without Friends is an original written by Bill Russell and I but mostly Bill's work here. We recorded this at TraxEast in 1989 with producer Plinky Giglio on the ivories. I found live footage which includes us performing this song, but my DVD burner crapped out before I finished converting all of the video. So Bill and I touched up some audio stuff over the summer and remastered it, though it would have been nice to have the original tracks to remix.

Privacy by The Cuspers, an ode to mass media and mass hysteria. This was originally recorded with the Merj, and titled "Prophecy" about 1-900 psychics. I rewrote it in 2011 as the subject became dated. I used the original analog bass, drums and rhythm guitars of me and my brother. Everything else was redone for Cusper's Last Stand in 2012 and remastered for this new video. Influences for the song include the Monkees Door Into Summer, REM's What's The Frequency Kenneth, and the original version of Good God, written by Jim Jenkin and Channon Reed, recorded by Whitebread.

Seeing You Knowing Me was a song I wrote hoping to get it to the Bangles back in the day. Kathy Shortt helped to give it the groove I always thought it could have, and I got lucky with some "matching : footage from a old commercial on youtube. Props to Kathy for her hard work and a fantastic job.

God Only Knows. Written by Brian Wilson and Tony Asher. Singing to backing tracks for my Mom, made me realize the vocal exercise and discipline to really sound professional is intense and sometimes complicated, but good for later translation in live performances. Seeing the reaction of my Mom from the more traditional covers made me realize my limited voice is more suited to pop/rock than “crooning”. Anyway, as I finish my part up on collabs I’m looking forward to releasing, I took on a quick vocal exercise with backing music tracks, but I needed tracks that had NO piped in backing vocals. I wanted to do this by myself. It was a quick run. A guide lead vocal. One take each for 5 backing vocal tracks, and finally the finished lead vocal. We miss you Carl Wilson!

Again I'm breaking my own rule of posting multiple live versions, but we pulled off this nice live medley Friday night.

All the Way Lance Bedwell and Mike Viscardi. Lance recorded my short version of this song I did with Rockslide, and I suggested we do my full version together, which I never recorded. I'm pretty pleased to have been able to work with Lance-a true pro! He has a lot of great tunes here on Fanda!! Please check out his page!!! http://fandalism.com/lancebed

Although I actually fled the Jersey shore this weekend, this is a rocker I wrote many years ago and re-recorded with my brother from our Cusper's Last Stand collection.
