David Paich - Keyoboard player extroadinaire!
David: … Where they make things happen and it’s just good merchandizing wise and everything. It’s just fresh.
All this, just to get some young blood in here, it’s just time for a …
At this point, shame on me as I had planned on keeping it to about five or ten minutes, but bless 'im, David can talk a bit too! LOL!
She’s a keyboard player actually.
I mean, do you have a specific piece of work that has meant more to you than anything else for any reason and not necessarily Toto, or not?
I mean all that stuff you’ve written?!
I said ‘Stu, this ballad needs some strings on it …’ So what I do with my band is that means, ‘OK I’m going to get a hold of you, when I want to put some strings on it!’ you know … (Laughs).
So I start putting them down and Stu calls me every day, ‘Are they done yet?’ ‘Are they done yet?’ ‘Are they done yet?!’ I say,’ Stu, I going work on them here, ‘cos I’m busy but I’ll call you back.’ So I’m putting strings on one ballad that I heard them do and then he asked me if I’d maybe write something for the record.
So maybe I might with his singer Joe, me, Joe and Stu may get in my room and pen something together, which I’d like to do very much.
Actually there’s one that is not up to par … I can tell you this right now.
There’s four incredible ones …
Trouble is with my day job, it’s tough for me to an interview with anyone during the week, so that’s why I have to do the interviews on the weekends.
Great singer though too.
The artists we turned away …, it’s unbelievable! I mean, you could just choke a horse!
We had all these great things set up and he was like … ‘Paul doesn’t want like those people on, so we ended up with like Neil Young and Foo Fighters and … The people we end up with that I’m disappointed … I mean as I said like Neil Young, Foo Fighters, James Taylor …, I mean all these great people but the people that didn’t make the cut it was like … Unbelievable!
So it’s been really fun because they like bringing people in at the last minute and Duane Eddy wanted to be on and I found a song for him to do, ‘And I Love Her,’ so I might actually get to play on the show.
You know some of those things, just real influential you know?
Ed: Didn't see it ... :(
Well we go down to a Seven Eleven and James starts trying to buy lottery tickets.
He asks for a lottery ticket and he tries to pay for them with this fake money – Ed’s note: I’m dying here! – and we’re just being hilarious and we’re acting like we’re in a movie, so we’re so out of hand here, I won’t tell you all the rest of the shit that happened …But anyway, I’ll leave it at that …
I call it my Jon Lord switch. It just shoves it to overdrive you know?
Oh, well good for her man.
If you just want to post a couple of notes on the site, then I’ll happily do it David.
