Former TIGERTAILZ Frontman To Release Solo Album - Apr. 22, 2009

 

Former TIGERTAILZ vocalist Steevi Jaimz will release his new solo album, "My Private Hell", on May 25 via Cargo/SCS Records. According to a press release, the CD "combines Steevi's trademark glam-style melodies with KISS and OZZY OSBOURNE-style hard rock."

 

"My Private Hell" was written, performed and produced in Sweden with Chris Laney and Anders Ringman (a.k.a. Platform; CRASHDIET, EUROPE, CANDLEMASS) and was mixed at Polar Studios (ABBA) in Stockholm during 2008.

 

"My Private Hell" track listing:

 

01. Amazing

02. Don't Say It's Over

03. Something Good Something Bad

04. Still Crazy

05. Little Sistah

06. My Private Hell

07. Kiss Of Death

08. I Don't Wanna Walk Away

09. Dancin' With Danger

10. Kikk It Down

 

All the songs were written by Jaimz with Laney and Ringman except for "Don't Say It's Over", which was wriiten by Laney with Ryan Roxie (ALICE COOPER, SLASH'S SNAKEPIT).

 

A version of "Amazing" was recently featured on Classic Rock magazine's covermount CD.

 

Steevi was a member of TIGERTAILZ for the band's 1987 debut album, "Young & Crazy".

What did you think of his previous solo effort?

I've got it somewhere but it must be pretty un-memorable cos I can't recall a thing about it.

I thought it was okay but not great. 'Cat on a hot tin roof' was the highlight for me.

Steevi is Mr Rock N Roll, but his voice and material is never what you would call "stunning".

I dont expect anything too different from him on this release, so basically it will be fair solid but unspectacular.

If you've heard the Chris Laney solo-disc and like it you'll love this one! Laney and Ringman took Steevie to a whole new level from what I've heard so far!

More thoughts to follow more spins, but this was pretty good. Not as good as I was hoping for and definitely not as good as Laney's 'Pure'... but there is some good stuff here. Good riffs, good tunes... some nice choruses. Most the ingredients are here but there was just a little something lacking. Not sure if it's actually Steevi's voice itself. I don't think so, because Laney's voice ain't exactly great but the strength of the mateiral on 'Pure' more than outshines that. So I don't know. I need a few more spins to form a proper thought on this.

'Cat on a hot tin roof' and 'now your on your own' (I think ??) were awesome whereas there wasn't a duffer the rest just weren't in that league.

 

I can't remember a ballad either on that cd...

    • Fuck me, he is off on one again: https://rockcelebrities.net/michael-sweet-stryper-is-the-most-hated-band-of-all-time/ Just a few comments that make me cringe: “We may very well be the most ‘hated’ band of all time but we’ve persevered and we’re still here. We are The Yellow & Black Attack. We are Stryper.” Now I am sure there are bigger bands out there who have more haters than Stryper ever had. Whether this is for right or wrong reasons, Nickleback, U2 and Coldplay spring to mind as bands that have got more hate than Stryper over the years, and they mostly ignore it because they choose to acknowledge the millions who do love them rather than cry about those that hate them. “When I listen to Stryper (as an outsider and as unbiased as I possibly can be) I can hear some pretty cool stuff going on. And at the risk of sounding egotistical, I think Oz and I are one of the better guitar duos to have cranked those Mesas up and harmonize in the studio and on stage. I don’t know, maybe I’m just dreaming and we do suck. Oh well, if this is what ‘sucking’ looks and sounds like, I’ll take it.” How can you ever listen to your own music as an unbiased outsider? The guy is blatantly so thin skinned that he just cannot accept some people just do not like his music, or do not like overly preachy christian music. I have said before on here, I really like Stryper and some of Michaels projects outside of the band, but I have had serious burn out on anything he releases just because he releases way too fucking much. And his attitude has seriously turned me off of supporting him. I have not bought the last few Stryper albums. There are a couple of solo albums I am missing. Didn't buy the last Sweet & Lynch. And I only bought the first Sunbomb when it was mega cheap recently. The quality is hit or miss, which I think is down to him going for quantity over quality.  
    • Yeah will look forward to this also   £16 shipping!! I'll wait for a UK seller to stock  
    • Another band that really is not the band it is pretending to be
    • There seems to be no other takers, so here's the solution highlighted.     
    • Dodges Vs Diamondbacks. With this organist playing while car burns.  
    • I quite like this album. Best songs for me are Straight Up Jack, Nobody Gets Out Alive and Southside of Hell.  Score: 4 out of 6. 
    • New song 'Ghost In Me'.    
    • This cd is listed twice as Heard It on the Radio - Volume 1 and Heard It on the Radio Volume 1 and with two different covers 
    • Seems like it would be right up your alley. I'm enjoying the album immensely. French group.
