SUMMER RECAP 2011
In the day of Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/drummertroy) and Twitter (http://twitter.com/drummertpf), the dot com takes a back seat regarding updates. I actually prefer the dot com but if you can’t beat em, join em!
I got my touring out of the way early doing a run w/ LYNCH MOB and ADLER’s APPETITE touring with the Support Act.
GENE LOVES JEZEBEL (http://genelovesjezebel.com) made it out alive playing whatever gear was available to whoever would have us..
The summer seemingly has been “quiet”, however it hasn’t. I’ve been doing some gigs w/ GENE LOVES JEZEBEL in So Cal, in fact one recently in Anaheim at the House of Blues with fellow 80′s UK Stars A FLOCK OF SEAGULLS, BOW WOW WOW, WHEN IN ROME UK and BOYS DON’T CRY. I’ve done a few of those 80′s packages and it’s a great little family to be a part of.
This past weekend, I attended the VEGAS ROCKS! 2nd annual (7th anniversary) VEGAS ROCKS AWARDS SHOW with my newest partner in crime, ATHENA. We presented the award for best local PUNK BAND…(I voted for the RAMONES!).
We met up with www.PUREROCKRADIO.com DJ and Host CORY DRAPER and did an impromptu interview about Vegas Rocks, our current events and Red Vines. Just listen here to find out what was said about the Red Vines!
TROY PATRICK FARRELL & ATHENA for PURE ROCK RADIO WITH CORY DRAPER <--AUDIO
I also tracked 3 songs with old buddy JOE FINLEY for his upcoming release. I'm tracking 4 more songs this week.
My old bro GEORGE ANDRIAN from the DRAGON days (mid 90's) and my real brother SHAWN MICHAEL FARRELL got together to move forward on DRAGON 2. We "wrote" 3 songs, some stemming from GEO's back catalog and at least one we all arranged. This will be a slow but interesting process.
Some pix are below!
More updates coming soon regarding live shows and a visit w/ GENE LOVES JEZEBEL to SOUTH AMERICA in November!
