One Road Into Reno! Wayland Tour Log 2/17/14

We got into town around 2pm yesterday. We checked in at the Eldorado and went off to explore downtown Reno. We all took some time apart to call our families. Mitch and I met up a little later and tried our luck on the Penny and Nickel slots. We were not very lucky. Haha!

A friend of Royal Bliss invited us out to a club he works at in town. We were all pretty exhausted but Mitch and I mustered up the energy to go. We didn't want to pass on a potential adventure in Reno.

One Road Out of Vegas – Wayland Tour Log 2/16/14

The club last night was awesome. Great sound, great stage, wonderful staff.

You know you're in Las Vegas when there's more leather, studs and sequence in the crowd than there is on stage. We were opening for a well-known local Vegas cover band.

George Thorogood & The Destroyers Slate 40th Anniversary Tour

Forty years is incredible for any rock band.

George Thorogood & The Destroyers have been rockin' for four decades. These are the guys who gave us "Bad to the Bone," "I Drink Alone," "Who Do You Love?" and "One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer." This is ultimate classic rock with metal along with some blues and country mashed in.

The band's 40th anniversary tour kicks off Feb. 27 in Las Vegas. While it doesn't have any Michigan dates, it has a July 12 concert at Blue Chip Casino & Hotel in Michigan City, Ind.

One Road Out of Kingman – Wayland Tour Log 2/15/14

I was a little sad to leave L.A. yesterday. Only because we are getting so close to finishing this group of songs that it's frustrating to see the light at the end of the tunnel, and not be able to run into it. If we just had two or three weeks in the studio we could really wrap things up.

Yesterday in Kingman, Ariz., was fantastic from start to end. The promoter and venue took amazing care of us, the openers were great people, and the crowd was raging and ready for a Friday night rock show! We played for almost 2 hours!

One Road Out of The San Fernando Valley – Wayland Tour Log 2/14/14

Happy Valentines Day everyone! It feels great to be back in the bus as we roll out of town. Everyone seems fresh and ready to get to work.

We got a lot done yesterday. Mitch, Gurley, and myself spent the early afternoon writing and met up with the band over at Mates Rehearsal at 4pm. The guy working there said if we had shown up 30 minutes earlier we would've ran into Slash. That would've been cool. We've had a few interesting run-ins with Slash over the last few years.

One Last Day in L.A. – Wayland Tour Log 2/13/14

We had an amazingly productive day in the rehearsal room yesterday. We arranged a full-band, acoustic version of "Follow" and spent some time jamming on the new arrangement of "Bloody Sunrise." We also worked on a new arrangement for "Get a Little," and for the last 2 hours we jammed on some brand new songs.

Day 3 in L.A. – Wayland Tour Log 2/11/14

We loaded into a rehearsal studio at noon yesterday. We rehearsed the new version of "Bloody Sunrise" and worked on a new song that we're calling "Superhero," but that title could always change. It was so refreshing to actually listen to and hear the music we were making. The monitors in a live club situation are always just enough to get by, never really enough to actually inspire. As a player, your ears tend to take a few songs to adjust and then you start to find the each instrument as you go along. Sometimes I don't hear Dean's bass until the 3rd song in the set and it's like "Oh, hey Dean! Glad you're here!"

One Road, Stuck in Traffic in Los Angeles – Wayland Tour Log 2/11/14

Yesterday was a long day.

Once we got into the studio, we basically reconstructed "Bloody Sunrise" from the ground up.

I'm so excited about the work we did, I think it really made the song come alive. At the very end of the session, we finished mixing "Follow."

I'm looking forward to living with it for a few days. Hopefully, after hearing it with fresh ears, we all agree that it's finished so we can cross it off the to-do list!
