So this is an eclectically gathered mixture of who's who's in rock n roll (see below) and the album just dropped in September.

"Preview of the Allstars Charity Album "Stay Tuned 1.5" by Bernhard Welz - release date: September 30, 2016
Charity for the Linda McCartney Fundraising centre.

Shortly before his 40th birthday, Bernhard Welz (No Bros, Schubert In Rock) realised his plan. For “Stay Tuned” – a charity project for the Linda McCartney-Fundraising Centre – he set up an all-star band. Obviously moved by good intentions, the project presented by the Graz originated musician made quite an impression, and the artists came to him in droves. So legends like Dan McCafferty (Nazareth), Tony Martin (ex-Black Sabbath), Neil Murray (Whitesnake) or Carl Sentance (Krokus, Nazareth, Geezer Butler) were quickly recruited. Even Guy Pratt (Pink Floyd, Roxy Music), Steve Lukather (Toto), Mike Stern, Mark King (Level 42), Katrina Leskanich (Katrina and the Waves), Laurence Cottle (Sting, Alan Parson‘s Project) and Chris Childs (Thunder) could not resist the call.

Written and arranged by Bernhard Welz, the music is a mix of Rock music and classical ballads that should generate enthusiasm everywhere. Ballads like “Let The Star Shine On You” or heavy Rockers such as “I Don’t Believe That Rock’n’Roll Is Out” clearly give us that impression. Since a considerable part of the musicians consists of Ian Paice, Don Airey, Roger Glover and Steve Morse from Deep Purple, cracking Hammonds and exhilarated guitar leads in songs such as “Traffic Night” or in the Oriental styled “Secret Land” do not come as a surprise at all. While “Fading Away” can be interpreted as a tribute to Jon Lord (Deep Purple) and Steve Lee (Gotthard), and even show hints of a John Miles vibe, “Young Free And Deadly” (original version on “Schubert In Rock”), which include a harmonica solo, can be regarded as a life attitude. Soulful songs like “Always Behind You” or “Believe Me” conclude this effort and feature a drum jam by Ian Paice as well as an incredible live version of “Child In Time”. To crown it all, Sir Paul McCartney appears with his 1970-released song “Maybe I’m Amazed” in a version from 2014. An epic song on just such an incredible album – stay tuned.

'With a guest list like that'' ?? are you fucking crazy!! it's chock full of major talent all the way down and some of the best ever session musos there are (Lukather, Sklar, Pratt, Murray, Morse, Airey, Cottle) whether you like the artists/ bands/ sessions they belong to or not, absolutely no denying that. .musically though I agree and the clips aren't grabbing me to be honest..Will have to tread carefully on this one

No doubt it's a well known guest list, but I personally do not like a single album any one of those artists has ever been involved in (okay, so bar Whitesnake and Gotthard, but they're 2% of the bands listed there), so that's hardly a glowing endorsement for the project. I'm not interested in popular names... just good music.

Oh dear, I absolutely hate that... which should not be a surprise with a guest list like that.

 

Agreed. And more credence to my point that Terry likes EVERYTHING. It's not his fault that most of what he likes isn't very good. :confused:

Like is a strong word. I however am not nearly as persnickety as the bulk of you and give credit for making an effort as it is more than what I am doing.

I agree with that. My musical talent was zero. Although I tried my ass off.
