Fuel

Fuel has recorded their next project. It's in the mixing stages now and we should hear the 1st single in May and see something on the shelves in June. I know the bass player Jeff Abercrombie and he says it sounds great. But he's a little jaded from the last CD. It had a couple top 10 hits, but it didn't translate into sales. Something Like Human was double platinum, maybe triple. I not sure Natural Selection even hit platinum. Won't Back Down was a great song on the Dare Devil soundtrack. Probably one of my favorites. Carl gets great tone from his Road Kings. He used to use H&K live and on show used a Pod Pro...only once. The Pod was fine in the studio for some guitar parts, but they just fall apart live. I gotta admit though. I think I liked the H&K amps better before he made the switch. Carl is a great guitar player. Hard to tell from the CD's. He can noodle well enough, but their material just didn't call for it I guess. I hope he cuts loose on the next project.

Re: Fuel

"Natural Selection" came out after "Something Like Human", correct? I don't believe I've heard one song off their last album. I should probably check it out and will have to look out for the future one as well. I liked Fuel alright... they were angry without sounding cranky and I kinda liked that.

Re: Fuel

I guess the bass player of the band would be the toughest critic

Ok, Wasted Time is available on iTunes and others. All the links are posted on Fuels myspace page. Now go show the guys some love and break out the $.99 for Wasted Time.

I gotta agree..... he needs to cut loose. I don't buy into the "their material just didn't call for it" line though. Heck, he needs to push the issue and get even a few licks in there. Even if it's just to follow or accent the vocal line. There's plenty of room for it. JMHO!
