TERRY BROCK, ROBERT BERRY, GARY PIHL, MATT STARR Join Forces In ALL 41
May 2, 2017
ALL 41 is not just another project born of Frontiers president Serafino Perugino's imaginative A&R mind, but is a project very close to the hearts of each musician involved. With none other than the amazing Terry Brock (GIANT, STRANGEWAYS) on lead vocals, Robert Berry (THREE, ALLIANCE) on bass and lead vocals, Gary Pihl (BOSTON, SAMMY HAGAR, ALLIANCE) on guitar, and Matt Starr (ACE FREHLEY, MR. BIG) on drums, ALL 41 is a project born of passion and fire. Their debut album, "World's Best Hope", will be released July 7.
You can see a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the album below.
Pihl says: "It started with some great-sounding songs in a rough 'demo' form, but every time I got a new version with each musician's real performance on it, I got stoked! We're all bringing our 'A' game to the band. I can't wait to do some gigs with these guys! Robert and I go way back, and Terry and Matt are, like, the best players ever!"
Berry adds: "So many times musicians get together and struggle to find common ground in style and substance. When Serafino, president of Frontiers, called me with the lineup for ALL 41, I had no idea that he had put together perfectly matching musical pieces. From playing bass to Matt's solid drums, trading vocals with Terry's soaring voice, to the warmth and feel of Gary's own style of powerful-yet-melodic guitar playing, this band came together like missing puzzle pieces. I can't wait to get it on to the concert stage."
"What a great bunch of musicians to work with and such talented, classy guys. I am proud to be associated with this project and I am so proud of my great friend and collaborator Alessandro Del Vecchio for his incredible work!!!! Thank you Serafino, Mario and Frontiers for ANOTHER amazing opportunity....GRAZIE MILLE AMICI," says Brock, with drummer Matt Starr adding, "I had a lot of fun making this record. There are some amazing songs and everybody really played great!"
Musically, these guys gel incredibly well and have come up with a superb debut album which mixes MR. BIG's most melodic moments together with the more keyboard-laden years of VAN HALEN along with obvious nods to STRANGEWAYS and ALLIANCE. The dual lead vocals are an amazing plus for this absolutely beautiful record, not to mention the excellent production which highlights the unforgettable melodies.
