I can't even put into words how much I miss hearing the DMB live. The vibe, the emotion and energy; it all feels so personal and heart-felt. Not to take one thing away from the Y&T boys but the DMB is such a hit for me and the Bash is the topper on the cake.

You know, if I do my math correctly, this December is 55 for Big Man Dave so I think that's reason for a celebration.:bday: C'mon Dave!

Just listened to it right now, since you reminded me.

For anyone interested, Bill did a cover of Don't Stop Running and he played all the parts himself on the demo CD.

I think you did a very nice job indeed. :ylsuper: In actual fact I really thought it was Y&T until just before the singing came in. It sounded like you were playing the album track back and just playing on top of it. That's pretty fargen good you came that close to the sound. You nailed my tone from that record, the licks were nicely played in the solo and you got all the chords and instrument parts correct. The drums were well constructed too. All in all a job very well done.

My only nitpick is with the vocal sound. I think this song is way too high for your natural voice, which is no slap on you because this is possibly the hardest song I have to sing of all the Y&T songs in the set. I could hear you were going to falsettos a lot and I could tell you were straining a bit, but you still nailed the parts and the pitching was good. Also you did an excellent job mimicking my vocal bits and the backgrounds were pretty close, though you actually added a part or 2 that wasn't there on the original recording.

OK, there you have it. I believe you can feel really good about this CD performance. :party06: If there is another Birthday Bash in the near future and a dream jam to go with it, you get my vote to be a part of it.

Hey Dave~ Your description is exactly perfect. I got that same feeling, that Bill had played over the original track. Hmmmm....
Really good job tho & the vocals sure do sound similar to you.

There's 2 songs on the cd Bill sent me. Wonder why he didn't send you the other one too....it's pretty great too!!

Lookin' forward to a Birthday Bash & a Dream Jam with Bill up onstage with ya, man!
You gonna let him SING a verse &/or a chorus with ya? ;)


Hopefully I'll be able to JAM with you too....one of these years!

Dave,

Um...I don't know what to say... Yea for all of you who will criticize me for what I am about to say, TOO bad! I am secure in my skin. But I re-read this about 10 times because I couldn't believe what I read. Not because I do not have confidence in myself, but having Dave Meniketti compliment me on my playing is just...well, I got a bit teary eyed. There I said it.

Dave, THANK YOU SO MUCH for taking the time out to listen to this, you can't imagine what it means to me....Really man.

Cheers,
Bill

Okay,

Lemme lay it down as I did this project. First as Dave mentioned, I did do ALL the parts myself which left wonderin how I was gonna get that "live" vibe so to speak. Well, it wasn't easy but what I did was, load up Y&T on Nuendo, and then I played TO the Y&T track and then deleted it when all the parts were done. How and whay I nailed Dave's guitar sound is still a mytery, HOWEVER!!!! HEY DAVE!!! I used a Vox Tonelab SE 1/2 solid state, and 1/2 tube processor. See? I told they RIP ASS!!!

As far as Falsettos, the ONLY falsetto was at the very end, where I did that R&B "wooohooo" thing. Other than that, there were none else.

Also, if ANYONE thinks I am bullshitting, I'll GLADLY send you a Nuendo OMF file. THAT, will prove it. It's ALL me. I am only sayin this due some people kind STICKIN ME A BIT...Not that I have to prove but...

Bill called me tonight & I'm glad he did cuz I got to congratulate him again for doin' such a great job on Don't Stop Runnin' & also for getting such a wonderful response from Big Man Dave.
Bill's recorded several other Y&T songs, & I wanna hear 'em all. I'm Lost is KILLER!
Hey Bill~ You oughta make an album called One Man Tribute to Y&T!!!!!!!!!
You are one talented guy! Cool that you're down with Nuendo AND ProTools too!!
I'd be honored to play music with ya anytime, & have you help me out with recording my songs.
Thanks for the offer to help engineer with ProTools....hope you can find a little time & hopefully you'll get inspired to play some guitar & sing too!!
That'd be the next best thing to recording at Dave's studio & havin' HIM contribute to my stuff!
We GOTTA definitely JAM on some Y&T songs too!!!!
Hope to see ya at a BirthDay Bash this year, JAMMIN' with Dave!
Sure would be AWESOME to play bass or drums with you guys!! Hope that can happen!
It'll take a lot of dedication & devotion on my part...

Well it looks like the Birthday Bash ain't gonna happen again this year.
Maybe next year...after a new Y&T album & Tour to promote it.
Then the Dave Meniketti Band may make a new album &/or tour.
Maybe with 3 great albums out they'll draw bigger crowds!!!

Wow!!! Haven't got a clue what that lot is, but according to the new reviewer on the block (DM) you nailed it! -Can I look forward to you forming a Y&T tribute band; circling the world to perform on a route of gigs, 6 months out of synch. with the big lads....That way all us fans outside the states would get a taster of Y&T every 6 months...

Meanwhile, I've just heard that the water level up at the Bering Straits near Diomede is only 100 feet or so in depth? If that's right, can you lads not throw in a few rocks to reconnect the land bridge to Eurasia? That way I'd be able to get on my bike and get round for a taste of the awesome US gigs...If your quick enough I can make the Petaluma gigs on the 21/22/Nov -...Come on lads put your backs into it....
