ACOUSTIC SAINTS (Stan Bush) – S/T [unreleased]
As requested, here’s the recordings from ACOUSTIC SAINTS, the band put together some time ago by singer / songwriter AOR icon Stan Bush, bassist Chuck Wright (Quiet Riot, House of Lords, Giuffria) and guitarist Rick Sailon (Laura Brannigan, Richard Page, Jim Messina).
While Stan Bush was working on a new album, ‘Acoustic Saints’ started as a side project intended to play some small gigs. Stan had to say: “Yeah, we just got together with Chuck to play some acoustics, this is a very cool thing. We’re doing only great classic songs, with a few originals thrown in. It’s myself, Chuck Wright with his acoustic bass and Rick Sailon on acoustic guitar, violin & mandolin.”
The Acoustic Saints reinterpret Classic Rock fave tunes from the ’70s and ’80s, such as “Whiter Shade Of Pale”, “Hotel California” or Bush’s penned “Love Don’t Lie” (popularized by House of Lords) with a moody atmospheric vibe.
The shows also featured may guests such as Dave Amato (REO Speedwagon), David Victor (Boston), Mike McManus (Queen Nation)
