Spread Eagle singer Ray West just released his first solo album under the name All Pointz West (it’s the first thing he’s released – not counting a 3-song EP with the band Hostel, Inc. a year or two ago- in over 15 years) and it shies away from the early ’90s sound and goes for a much more contemporary metal sound.
My birthday was yesterday. I didn’t celebrate. My real present came Sunday night courtesy of Rob DeLuca, bassist for Sebastian Bach‘s band, who hooked me up with killer seats for the Poison/Dokken/Sebastian Bach show at The Schott in Columbus. I’ve been a fan(atic) of DeLuca’s since his days slinging bass for Spread Eagle and though the band never blew up the way they should have, I still tell people about driving DeLuca and singer Ray West to a party in Akron after a Spread Eagle show at the Akron Agora in ’90 or ’91.
If you thinking about checking out one of the upcoming shows – there are still a month and a half of dates left – do yourself a HUGE favor and get your ass to the arena early to check out Baz and his band tear things up (here’s my review of the Columbus show).
After the jump … Rob DeLuca answers some questions I sent him via email on an off day on the tour.
