In other Tichy-related news, Brian's band BALL (which features Tichy on guitar/vocals) "has been in a half-assed state of limbo," according to a post on the group's web site. "Drummer Dorian Heartsong (who replaced original drummer Joe Travers in '03) is busy pursuing another original band (DAN ROCKET) and hasn't had the time to commit to this band. We've been trying to find a new drummer via friends' recommendations and through our own connections. Well, that hasn't happened yet and we're still looking."

Interested parties should send a demo/promo package to:

3940 Laurel Canyon Blvd. #442
Studio City, CA 91604

Also on the Tichy-related front, "in the middle of December I recorded drums for the new KENNY WAYNE SHEPHARD record," Brian writes. "We did 8 drum tracks in 2 days with producer/songwriter Marti Frederiksen. We may be getting back together in March or so to finish the rest of the drum tracks.

"In January I recorded drums for 'B'Z' guitarist Tak Matsumoto's solo record. 'B'Z' is Japan's biggest rock band. They are huge over there. Like 3 nights at the Tokyo Dome huge! We will finish up the rest of the tracks in late March. Tak's solo record also includes Jack Blades (NIGHT RANGER/DAMN YANKEES) on bass and Eric Martin (MR. BIG) on vocals.

"Soon after the Tak sessions, Jack asked me to come up to his studio to record a record of classic rock covers he and Tommy Shaw (STYX, DAMN YANKEES) are starting. We did 8 tracks in 2 days. We may do some more soon."

"In the [BILLY] IDOL camp, new music is being finished and hopefully we will be getting in the studio soon."
