Michael Monroe To Collaborate With Lemmy On New CD
September 13, 2010
Michael Monroe, the iconic rock’n’roll frontman and founding member of hugely influential Finnish outfit Hanoi Rocks, has revealed that Lemmy of Motorhead will be appearing on his upcoming solo CD.
Says Monroe, “We’re busy working away here in L.A. and it’s going great! After 5 days of pre-production with Jack Douglas, we did our first day of actual recording yesterday (Saturday, 11th).
What made it extra special was, that Lemmy came by to collaborate on a song, which he also sang on with me. A huge honour and great fun too, of course.We had a real cool time and at the end of the evening he played us the new Motorhead album, which sounded totally amazing, although it wasn’t even the final mix.Lemmy is THE MAN! I can’t wait for the U.K. Tour in November with us opening up for Motorhead!
Today (Sunday), our second day of recording, we’ve gotten down the basic tracks (bass, drums & guitars) for 9 songs, out of the 15 we are recording.If we’ll finish the basics for the remaining 6 songs tomorrow, we’ll be nicely ahead of schedule. Everything’s sounding brilliant already. Working with our producer Jack Douglas is absolutely fantastic!”
Michael Monroe recently entered into a recording agreement with Universal Music. The first fruits of this international deal will be a brand new live album, ‘Another Night In The Sun/Live In Helsinki’, set for release on September 27th 2010. This 15-track outing will be made available through Universal subsidiary, Spinefarm Records.
