by Bruce Kulick (1999) ;
Eyes Of Love
; This (1989-) demo was done after
a more primitive version was recorded on a 4-track. Eric sings
his heart out and does all the vocals, drums and bass. I play
guitars and, because I never got to do it back in 1989,
overdubbed the solo in 1999.
Somebody's Waiting ; An Ultimate Eric ballad
from 1989. This demo has Eric playing bass and drums, with me
playing acoustic, lead and rhythm guitars. I recently overdubbed
the solo in the spirit of 1989.
Heavy Metal Baby ; This 12-track demo (1989)
has no real words. Eric scat/sang on this track to give us ideas
for lyrics. They were never completed but the production is
still strong with Eric on drums (programmed drum machine) and me
Just Can't Wait ; This is the 12-track demo of
a very arranged song from 1987 that was never finished with
vocals. The chorus was Eric's idea, and Adam Mitchell and I
worked it out with him. We added acoustics and some keyboards
that were played by Adam.
Mad Dog ; a 12-track demo from 1987 that still
rocks!! Eric's on drum machine and bass and I'm on guitar. Great
Chorus that's missing dog barks that we were planning to put on
the fade of the track. Only a cassette copy of this song exists.
You Make Me Crazy ; Originally called "Van
Halen" for its influence, this is a cool track that exists
only on a cassette, too. Eric is scat singing and playing drum
machine and bass. I play guitars and had a blast with the solo.
Nightmare / Nightmare (live demo) ; This song,
from early 1987, had a great potential and only these work tapes
exists. The first more developed version has Eric scatting
vocals and playing drums. In the second version, you can hear
Eric on acoustic guitar playing and tapping the beat and I'm on
electric guitar. Towards the end the end of the arrangement, the
tape recorder dropped and we had quite a laugh about it. Eric
always felt strongly about this song but it never quite got
Too Cool For School ; This first song, created
for Eric's cartoon-show band "The Rockheads", shows
their attitude and Eric's alter ego coming through in the
lyrics. Deals with school yard rejection and, of course, trying
to be cool ! Eric had no problem being cool.
Tiara ; Beautiful love song written by Eric on
keyboards. He played the keys to a drum machine loop with reverb
that makes a hypnotic effect. Eric sings his heart out and the
girls that got to know him remember what a romantic man he could
Can You Feel It ; A rocker that Eric waits on.
We would have loved Bryan Adams to cover the song! Eric
programmed the drums and played bass. I played the guitars.
Nasty Boys ; Very defining song for The
Rockheads showing their rebellious nature...... Eric's on drums
and bass and I covered the guitars. Lots of fun to record and we
would have loved to play this one live.
