I hear that the The edge in Adam Clayton and they've all opened a nightclub over there and Dublin that you could go over and have a pint yes.

This is how we roll and tell us about the project. Well if you the last time we spoke you she she burst into song if you started singing marionette and I was like repressed. I go this. I wish we call it on the the second down and outs album which was five years ago now This album however is also written. I wrote I wrote this eleven songs on There's one color which is an old shoop. Songo why I post on dope the other than that I've written this one Because I figured we kind of done the melting to death we like playing gene together It's it's it's like leaving a soap opera for a little while and I couldn't even an indie movie and then going back to the soap you know De Tesla is what it is. It's just the head of you know just never stops but it was nice to step out and do this decide thing and would you say. Let's just right one. Let's see what we come away. Then I took the opportunity of picking up guitar on the lyric sheet is thought to the piano and I wrote a Lotta songs the piano. I know so. It's not nothing that is ever done in. The songwriting session is all kind of comfort around the piano. He's not how things so I knew. At least he would give it a different flavor and you couldn't compare the two bands you know by the way Def Leppard will live forever. And I'm telling you folks when you're a big hit in Britain and you put out good product does last forever. I saw the iron maiden guys noun a divorce. Think over his one hundred thirty million dollar fortune. I forgot sakes these. These things are a wellspring The gift that keeps on giving your right. Dennis Blackman we. We've since we last spoke the the the volume respond. All you know. The popularity found as as once again risen to the point of almost what he was in nineteen ninety eight which is when we were you know alongside youtube. Probably the biggest selling on the planet. I now. Last last year we did Two thousand eighteen we did it's Sixty shows on the states with journey and ten of them would in stadiums. You know we were selling out the likes of course field in Denver and friendly park and stuff like that and you know just couldn't make it up when when we were our peak we already doing stadiums in the eight is To be doing them again now I I look at it like I guess. We're the generation below bands like fleetwood Mac and the eagles. But we've got about legacy that obviously helped enormously by the likes with MTV because if anybody watched MTV so songs videos just burned into your retinas you know and especially in the eighties by the nineties. He he kinda cool down and then he became a game show on gold side and horrible but Goes around around. Michael Jackson say I in Medan Titan Prince and all those any anybody that videos that were played four or five six times a day for like two years which were we seem to have aches given his along guarantee to abandon the nineties would never achieve. It is in the hard drive permanently. Let's talk down outs. Though includes members of the choir boys and indexing Brag on your bandmates little Gimme the this six of his in response so small stages and not an option I play. API know as well as the keyboard. the three guys from the band I think in America they called the London choirboys. Because there's a there's a an American choirboys But the guitar. The Lead Guitarist Guy called Paul Gary News a phenomenal guitarist. Much in the mold of people make Ronson from David Bowie's band the rhythm guitarist take a guy called Guy Griffin and keyboard players. Keep we're the bass player is the girl that from the back the Vixen naming share Rawson. She's a phenomenal bass. Ice Player Very happy on the last five years and the drummer is a guy called Phil Martini. A great name who plays the these days in a band called Wayward sons when and he's not moonlighting with me. I you know just jell together We have to do this in stages this album because everybody's mothership is so so busy that forever tore in Europe and I'm the states and they do these roll cruises where the right in the Caribbean for weeks at a time as vixen Taste difficult to pin them all down into one room so we recorded this album the way the stones recorded exile on Main Street we need we tracked the drums in London. shedded the base in Florida and the rest of the guys all came to my studio in Dublin and then we pulled the rest of the album together that way so you know I figured he works for example mainstream. It can work for us. You know I didn't have any worries about it They don't sign off on the songs they would all happy with his song so they just came in and shifts. You know I'd grab him for a couple of days here there. And eventually between everybody's touring commitments we gotta finishing fights. I finished the final mix two days after we were inducted into the the hall of fame in March was kind of a crazy way to work. It takes ice. That's a fun week now. Why the one cover? Why the tubes cover white punks on? Well yeah big fan of the band. the used to be a program on the on the BBC. You say back in the seventy S. Still the old grey whistle test and it was the only way into what anything that wasn't top forty I think you I'd like midnight special. which would be similar? I believe it was on for forty minutes a week late at night on BBC Two told by Walter and a and a presentable ball batteries would introduce people like captain beef out and maybe Joe cockatiel obscure artists and they the tubes were featured on this show and they became became extremely popular in the UK. If I technically they were a much bigger bound when they came out and in England than they were in America they only really broke the states in the eighties with MTV. So I've been seen fee waybill doing is is quite loot impersonation handed me the perfect hybrid between the British Glamour Glamor like Bowie and Punk Rock. which is just around the corner? Always been a favorite song and when we first this would discuss this third album for about ten minutes we were thinking of doing covers of you know maybe wings and Tennessee yellow. Whatever you know and if you know that they're not really but then we kinda knocked here on the head straight away books? We all said as we don't pick that song I that stays so we said we'll no matter what we'll recode white punks and we in Fantas- I mean the album the way they'd go ridden we put. Why punks right on at the end of the album as kind of like an own quote if you like? If we've proved I'll mentally ill by recording and right in an album that can so the bond can be seen to be standing on his own two feet from a writing point of view and then right at the end we just throw mixing for best fun you know and it's a classic song. I like the fact that the eleven you turned out on the Ivories were so good that nobody wanted to go down the the pinups road and just do covers. The must've been nice testimony. Did your five bandmates digging your stuff. Absolutely you know as I you said you know. He took such a long time to put this record together. We've been just eighteen. These things like a elephant you know for years. I think when we were shooting videos for the last album in in two thousand fourteen I played them between on downtime. I played him demos of maybe three or four of their songs back then and when they said Oh yeah why would you do kogo go days that gave me the confidence to keep writing and so I just kept writing the album and I literally tried to order and I wanted each other threats. Not The concept record at all but I did want to have that thread that you would get from listening to say Tommy or Corvina. So I won't scratch you my inner Pete Townsend he not respective giving giving some credence to the running order being very important and the way the songs build and if that's that's also internally as well as extra and you can hit a running order. Just because he's pleasant works for me. It worked really well because the first song was the first song that I wrote. So he gave that Dot kind of emotional threat as well as a physical threat of like. Yeah he's a good. It's a good role in order but he kind of made sense because he was written in that way as well. You know. It's funny when I saw that you guys had covered white punks on dope. I went back and read up on the song little. And I see that original was produced by Al Cooper Super Super Sessions Guy. Yes yes that guy did. He stuck his fingers in the law. Decent pies I mean nobody close. You know he was HE GETS IT ON A. I've got this really rat. Tom Petty bootleg which was calling official like any had a plane with him in front of like five people? doing a song off his trump in his first album and of course I think he was involved with steely down at one stage in lean. It'd be around the block quite a bit Listen to the song and just the vibe of it is so you know it's a very European punky kind of song. Those sound like an American bound at all if he's got any leaning towards America is more towards towards MC five. Iggy I think but he said he a Bowie t rex kind of vibe to it and that's right of my street.
