Naked Trucker Session for Bob…

The end of the music for “Let's Go To Prison” was great.

Months ago, Bob, Dave Koechner and I got together to write the main title to be performed by the Naked Trucker and Gerald Tibbins - better known as T-Bones (who looks a great deal like Dave). So then we waited... and waited... and finally we got the ok from hq and we had to really do it.

Then the genius of Dave Allen stepped in to sharpen some stuff. Then the band came in... and shoot, before you know it, it's a hoe-down.

So we assembled at Capitol Studios

(that's Jalinda, who works with Andy Paley with Dave Allen) and we assembled the Trucker, T-Bones...

and along came the Dick-Around Gang, manned by Andy Paley on drums, JP Fitting on bass,
TC Tommy Chan on guitar
and lastly... we had a very special guest to top it off…

The legendary Tommy Morgan on the bass harmonica.

And as always, we had Hank Cicalo manning the board - so we new it was gonna be a stone gas.

And it was. The end of the music for the movie lets me know we are getting a little bit closer to finally getting to let everyone hear and see what it is... all the great people we have gotten to play with... and now... all we have to do is wait until...


(For those who can't wait, you can always go see "Snakes on a Plane" when it comes out- rumor has it that they will be showing trailers for "Let's Go To Prison" before "Snakes.")

Big thanks to Hank Cicalo- who kept things sounding great- and our music supervisor- G. Marq Roswell- who kept explaining to people with money why we needed all the great musicians we got to play and the contributions that these players would make to make the movie better (which I think we did, immodesty aside).

I am a fortunate guy to have gotten the privilege to work with Bob, Dave Allen, Dave Koechner, The Dick-Around Gang, Tommy Morgan, The Queens of the Stone Age, Rahzel, James Gadson, Ray Parker, Jr., Reggie McBride, King Errisson, Scott Kinsey, Billy Hulting, Gary Gardner, Walter Smith III, the Prison Gang String Quartet, Meg White and Hank Cicalo- and I am as proud of the work Bob and I accompished as I am of anything I have worked on. We are working on getting a soundtrack record together- and I will keep posting when there is news regarding that.
