JACK BLADES WANTS DAMN YANKEES REUNION
August 13, 2009
Jack Blades has revealed to Classic Rock that he would love to do a new Damn Yankees album.
However, the Night Ranger bassist/vocalist says there are practical problems:
“You try to co-ordinate everyone’s schedules! I talk all the time to Ted [Nugent], and Night Ranger are about to tour in America with Styx, so Tommy [Shaw] and I will get the chance to write. But, at the moment another Damn Yankees album seems a long way off.”
Blades, though, is working on a new solo album, and also a second record with Tommy Shaw.
“We hope to have the have the Shaw Blades album [to be titled Influence 2] out soon. It’s got some cool stuff. We’ve done a version of Elton John’s Tiny Dancer, with Bun E. Carlos of Cheap Trick on drums. It’s come out so well.”
