Union feat. Brent Fitz on Drums – “Old Man Wise”

Union was a band formed by Bruce Kulick, ex-Kiss, and John Corabi ex-Motley Crue / ex-Scream.  They picked up a young unknown drummer by the name of Brent Fitz.  This is a live clip of Union from their DVD Do Your Own Thing.  “Old Man Wise” is the lead single off the debut CD from Union, and Brent’s drumming is a prominent feature of the song.  This was a great band, who I think should still be making records together.

Episode 11 – Artist Feature – Brent Fitz Of Slash Feat. Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators

[html5mp3full:14]

Very excited to have my good friend Brent Fitz with us this week.  Brent is with me for the entire 3 hours of the show as we work our way through his incredible journey in the music business.  Brent shares some great stories with us about his time with Union, Alice Cooper, Vince Neil and of course Slash Feat. Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators.  We also play some tracks from some of the other recordings that he has been a part of over the years including Karl Cochoran’s Voodooland, Econoline Crush, ex-Kiss guitarist Bruce Kulick’s solo albums, and Beggars & Thieves to name a few.

I think this interview could have filled 5 hours easily as Brent has had some great opportunities in his career to play with many iconic characters, including the late Ronnie Montrose.  There are many things that we couldn’t get to, but I think it is one of the best interviews that I have ever done.  Lots of great stories and laughs, and some incredible music to go along with it all.

Hour 1 starts off with some of the current tracks from Slash Feat. Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators’ Apocalyptic Love, some of the live tracks from the tour for the self titled Slash solo disc, and we finish the hour with tracks from Union’s self titled debut.

Hour 2 covers the rest of Union’s recordings, a killer Priest cover that Brent did with Vince Neil, and a couple of tracks from the Voodooland CD, Give Me Air.

Hour 3 includes some bootleg live Alice Cooper recordings, not the greatest recording quality, but still a fun listen, a track from Econoline Crush, and a few from Bruce Kulick’s BK 3 album.  We have a track from Beggars & Thieves and we finish with two number 1 hits, “You’re A Lie” and “Standing In The Sun” from Apocalyptic Love.
