    Brought together by a mutual love of Gretschs, George and I met on one of the facebook pages a couple of years ago. We've done a few video covers the last few months, but this is definitely my favourite so far! It's always a pleasure to work George on any track, but he's really excelled himself on this one! We were looking for a Stray Cats track to cover that isn't done all the often. We settled on 'I wont stand in your way', but decided to play it like Lee Rocker's Live version from 'The Low Road' album. George, as always, did an amazing job on the Bass, Drums & Vocals, and I strummed along with a guitar or two.

    Nicely done! And very Gretschy! I liked that you didn't try to sound like someone else, and made it your own. Great interpretation of it.

    A couple years back I met Slim Jim Phantom....he said it's been a while since he's talked to the guys from 14 Caret Soul, but he was going to give them a call since we were speaking of them. 14 Caret was the do wop group that backed them up in their video. Slim Jim said their manager suggested the band and agreed after they saw them in a bar near NYC. On tour they went!

    Thanks folks :)

    We were a little undecided how to go about this one. George lives on the opposite side of the Atlantic to me so we couldn't jam and try it out, we had to commit early on. In the end, we decided to go with how'd play it live in either of our current bands. We're both quite pleased with how it turned out. On to the next one!

    I actually got to play with the Polecats at a gig a year or so ago. Really nice guys! I had the 6120DE with me that night and Tim was quite interested in it. He has an original '57 6120 at home, but he doesn't like gigging it. He was looking for something similar that he could take out of the house so he had a few mins playing ours. Don't know if he bought one after or not.

    Thank you :)
