Bassist/vocalist Jeff Pilson gives this latest update at JeffPilson.com:

“Well sorry for the negligence on the commentary for a while now. Truth is, I've been on a music binge and just spaced it out completely. A call from Chad [jeffpilson.com webmaster] yesterday morning served as a gentle wake-up call, so here I am. But I do apologize. Not for the musical binge, but for the neglect. This one will be simple, not a whole lot to report, but the excitement factor is quite high!

“Basically the last several weeks have been spent finishing up the War and Peace record, and I just turned the demo version in to management this morning. I ended up playing guitar solos (which is such fun for me!), and mixing it myself, as well as putting all the songs in their proper order, etc. There is a definite feel to the running order of this CD, and I'm quite excited that it really does tell a story beginning to end. I wasn't expecting it to feel like such a complete piece of work, even though that was the intention. So basically it is all done, but once all the business is in place I'll see if it's feasible to get other guitarists in to do guest solos. That may or may not be possible at this time. I'm so ecstatically pleased with the songs, the over-all feel of the record, and all the performances, vocally and otherwise. And I can't even express how creatively fulfilling this has all been. One thing I love about this period in my career, is to have the technology to be able to record a CD, start to finish, on my own. I do love working with others, but sometimes it's such an amazingly pure process to take an idea and see it through to completion completely on your own. It's a real creative high. It also forces you to really focus your songwriting very intensely. Like I say, it's been a musical binge this last several weeks, but one I wouldn't trade for the world. While I'm at it, I might as well give a track listing and brief overview:

1. CALLING - Instrumental introduction which leads to…
2. REFLECTIONS - Fast up-tempo rocker
3. NO ONE IS LISTENING - Heavy tom-tom groove, very melodic chorus, social commentary
4. ROCK AND ROLL BREAKDOWN - Tongue in cheek song about a rocker falling apart on stage
5. THE WALLS HAVE EYES - Heavy tune, mostly about child abuse, but could mean other things as well
6. STRANGER IN MY OWN LAND - Song from the New York Tribute CD. Was written and recorded late Sept. 2001
7. YOU HAUNT ME - From the Pilson Beatles vault, acoustic number with orchestration and vocal. I love this one.
8. THE SHEL L- Heavy tune, very melodic chorus, lots of harmonies, interesting instrumental section
9. BLACK IN THE MIRROR - Heavy shuffle, big riff, big one-take solo in the middle (if that one stays!!!), catchy chorus
10. DESPERATE HEARTS - The Jason Bonham co-write from the Rockstar film. I think he'll be pleased with this version. Wait'll you hear the ending and how it segues into…
11. THE LINE IN THE SAND - Another social comment, heavy and melodic, lots of harmonies on the end
12. FINALE - This is the big summation, incorporating elements from the CD into a large cacophony of sound swirling at the end. Has one of my best lyrical lines ever (IMHO).

“Well there you have it. I don't mean to go off so much about this, but what do you expect, I just finished this morning!!! I'm anxious to have this heard, and as soon as possible, I'll let everyone know the business progress and try and narrow down a release date and any other info. In the meantime, Chad will be posting a few samples from the demo, and hopefully you'll all love it! Can't wait to hear from you about it.

“That's about it for now. Tommy [Henriksen] and I are in between projects, which is what allowed me the time to finish WNP. We'll be starting the Clear Static record soon, and that is going to be phenomenal. Other than that, everyone take care, watch for the WNP samples, and we'll talk soon.”

Take care;
Jeff
