Looks like they're working things out, they're posting pictures with one another on instagram and captions like "The good times will never die"

A new guitarist was announced via Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/santacruzbandofficial/ 

Tried to make sense of the comments and I think as of now only the singer is left in the band and hiring new members, starting with this new guitarist.

Wow, big difference between these two. :( I hoped and assumed they'd be okay. Bummer.

From FB:

After working with Brody DeRozie for a few months, we mutually came to the conclusion that he was not the man for Santa Cruz. We want to wish Brody all the best to his future endeavours in music. May we introduce the Russian Rocket, 19 year old guitar prodigy: @pavcruzz 26a1.png1f525.png🔥 We’ve been working like crazy on the low to get this band to the next level, so get stoked boys & girls! Shit’s about to get wild! XXX - The Cruz Team

So the singer won?

Owned the name?

The others left?

Yeah, I'm confused...

I must say I'm VERY impressed with the new guitar player, and after I found out he's only 19 even more so! As a guitar player myself I really enjoy his style (maybe the singer will benefit from it as well, new inspiration etc) and also like the things he did before Santa Cruz. There are a few videos of covers online and even original songs, again very impressed by the talent and definitely interested in the next album

This is an instrumental version of Pavel's own song ''Ready To Fall'', the vocals on the original aren't anything groundbreaking but he does them himself and I'm sure he'll do more than fine as a backup vocalist

I'm a guitarist too but I think he's too young for this. Yeah, he's good but he needs more experience, more "blues" to play this style right. Plus I didn't feel any chemistry between them two in the video. He looks (and plays) like Archie's little brother.

    • Yeah I know what you mean. I did a search and didn't see it either at first. It's not the first time and probably won't be the last.
    • Old photo of the entrance to Tower Records at Eastport Plaza.  This is like walking directly back in time 25+ years.  I even remember what part of the store I found the Roxy Blue CD  
    • Yeah I was sure there was one somewhere.
      I did a search for Steel City in the subject line.
      I think my mistake was that I put a space between steel and city  
    • Really like this track, will have to check out the Ascension album...   
    • "Want Some?" was easily one of my favorite CD's in the 1992 time-frame.  I remember specifically purchasing my copy at Tower Records at Eastport Plaza in Portland, Oregon late summer 1992.  No idea how I remember such specific (and often useless) information, but I also purchased Angel City "Face To Face" on CD the same day. Roxy Blue "Want Some" / Hardline "Double Eclipse" / Def Leppard "Adrenalize" / Bon Jovi "Keep The Faith" / Bangalore Choir "On Target" / Electric Angels "ST"  These are the discs that were in CONSTANT rotation in my system 1992 / 1993.  Yes, certainly there were others, but I pretty much wore the aforementioned titles out! Getting back on-track to the topic at-hand... I don't hold-out enormous hope based on the "Different sound" comment, but Frontiers is a great label, so we'll see.  I think more of a problem (for me, anyway), is it is no longer 1992, and I'm no longer a youthful 24 year-old looking to hang-on to the genre I knew and loved dating back to the early 1980's at a time when a "new" sound was taking over the airwaves.
    • Here's me repeating the same thread in April  
    • Here's a thread you replied to  
    • NOLA is one of my favorite CD's. Not one bad song.
    • Couldn't find a thread for this one. After a few listens I've decided that these are the songs I really like off the album.

      Decent enough, and worth picking up.

      01 Do You Love Me
      04 Picture Of Beauty
      05 Too Little Too Late
      06 Someone Like You
      08 Shame On You              
    • Just wanted to remind everyone how amazing this album is. Easily ion my all time top 5
      If you haven't heard it, get it.
