So that leaves Aja as the clean up hitter. Go get 'em Aja!

Really looking forward to this one and the March 1st show.

I was sooo tired last night just from watching those girls lay it down like a well oiled machine that I didn't have the energy to share how amazing it was to just watch and listen as the fingers flew. You knew when Sara was really feeling it and was getting a great take- she got big air - both feet off the ground!!! Holy COW!!!

Oh and our modest Miss Nikki neglected to mention her stellar debut on backing vocals for one of the songs! (Another hint for ya'll... )

Seeing as she is always doing backing vocals live it is only fitting.

Y'all aiming to finish up before going to Canada?

That kicks ass!!! I can't wait to hear Linda's back-up's properly. I can kinda hear her on some of Jim's videos but not very well. How she can sing AND play drums at the same time (especially THAT kind of drumming) is really amazing!!!

Ya, even though Bruce usually does most of the backing vocals on Maiden's recordings, the girls do such a great job in the show that I wanted to have them join me on the backing vocals. I was getting lonely in that booth all by myself!

As an added bonus you'll get to hear both Linda and Sara on another - it was a blast doing the backing vocals with my girls! And they did a wonderful job! We banged it out in one pass!

You'll also hear a taste of Sara's signature cookie monster voice yet again on one of the songs. It's fun adding our own little touches to the music we love so well. We're coloring outside the lines!

What a whirlwind - All recording DONE !!! We're heading in to the home stretch here with mixing next on the list!

Actually, they do work for smell. They don't block all odors, but they do block many (remember the banana odor test that the NBC guys use to test the mask?). I've used mine quite a few times to filter out my teammates farts in my commo van. I guess my teammates' farts must be tame compared to the people you know!

I'm glad to hear the studio recording is going well. Who is the new axewoman? All I see on the web site is that it's someone named "Heather." Any more information and photos?

I think Linda posted her myspace URL in another thread but what the hell! It bears repeating. http://www.myspace.com/heatherbaker

Like me, her solo stuff is very different from what she is doing with the band. And like Adrian, she also sings - and has quite a pretty voice! Once she gets more comfortable with the guitar aspect of her chair you'll be hearing more of it in the shows. I'm sure.

Banana test? I didnt get one of those...but then again I ETSd from the Army almost 21 years ago!

I used the M17A1 protective mask (or sleeping pillow). I'll bet its improved a lot since then...especially if it can filter out fart smell!

On the new guitar player...here is a picture of her looking like she will fit right in with Sarah

I'd say so.



Looks like she can even do Sarah's anti-gravity hair trick?

Studio update for yesterday:as Aja said:

ALL tracks are DONE!! It is sounding really good and that's just the raw tracks! We're taking the weekend off and start with mixing next week!

Anyone have any guesses to what songs we have recorded??? Tommy, you and your walnut brownies are not allowed to play this game this time!!! Hee hee!!!

I think I know which mask you are talking about. Some of the national guard units still use the old masks. The latest stuff (post-Desert Storm) is a nice improvement, but not great. Still, I'm tempted to start wearing mine to concerts because of the smokers.

here's the amp heads we used: heather played the black washburn thru the randall lynch box - pretty cool idea that randall - you can swap in what ever sound module you want. the one on the very right was a vox that we used for clean parts. i used my mesa with a couple of bob's esps as well as an engle powerball, which is the middle one in the pic below. for solos i used my mesa and vertigo guitar - and everything was miked thru a bogner with vintage 30z. that cab was so heavy it took two to lift!!

Is that red guitar one that Michelle was using when she jammed with you guys at Tap Daddy's in San Jacinto? I think I recognise it.
