Jake Mentioned in 3/17/05 Interview

Postby Fretman » Tue Jan 03, 2006 11:07 am

I found this brief mention of Jake in an interview of a Vegas band the other day...

The Jetts are now 3 years old -- and despite a revolving door of musicians, Stiff's vision has solidified with each successive song. Indeed, the band drags me back into the house to detonate two new tunes, which Stiff believes are the best the band's ever done. But his amplifier isn't sounding right. "Jake E. Lee fucked with my levels," he says. The Jake E. Lee? The ex-Ozzy shredder who performed on "Shot in the Dark"? He jams with the Jetts? "Yeah," says Roy. "He was in here last night playing nothing but Bowie. Jake E. Lee is bad, man."

Here's the link for reference:

WTF ?!?! :D

If it's true, which I hope it is, Retraced lit a long-faded sparkle for Jake :D

Cool dude :D Maybe Retraced lit a fire under his butt and he is itching to jam again. I would freak if he put out some new stuff. 8O

Great news! How about some live shows and new material? I'd settle for more covers.

I rate A Fine Pink mist as the best instrumental album I've ever heard so more instrumentals would be cool. I'd like him to do a Sacred Groove type album..guest singers and instrumentals.

Just remember what Mike Varney said before Retraced came out, Jake had regained that hitch to make music again...and I think Deansolo said on the old board that we could possibly wait for something new from Jake in the future.

On a side note, I agree that the A Fine Pink Mist is one the best instrumental albums around. It's not just your run of the mill instrumental album, Jake really tried to play with different pedals, different sounds, different textures, it was not about showing off, it was about experimenting and I like that.

I will take your word for it. If I remember right, you have pretty good taste in music.

Mmmh, yes, I think so :lol: Thanx! I can say the same thing for you. :wink:

Well, actually they're some sort of Punk Rock garage band, really not my taste.

thats the great thing about Jake he never rehashes the same licks over and over again like alot of shredders /instremental artist of the past his sound is and always has been original.
As for for getting his hitch back , I don't think he lost it I think he just had alot more on his plate then music and we all know between loosing both his parents the his sister and haveing people call him a meth head(wich we all know has no merit at all) who would blame him for being reclusive after all of that. I have to agree with stargazer if jake di a Sacred Groove type record with his tone that would be blues on acid that would more then rock.

Yeah and that would give something for everyone. I want both instrumentals and songs with vocals. I'd like to see him do a song with Ronnie James Dio on guest vocals 8)
