Post black sheep kicks ass
wow, this stuff kicks ass.

checck out cool stuff pages.

The person not listed in that 1985 lineup was none other than Paul Gilbert. Paul played on the original Black Sheep album before joining the GIT. He was 17 years old.

Before posting anything, I asked Paul about the album.

"I can't remember which songs I played on! Kurt James played guitar on half of the record and he actually sounds better than me. For some reason I had a hair-brained scheme of recording my amp "direct" with no microphone. The result was my guitar sounded very unnatural and buzzy. Like an angry bee caught inside a paper towel tube.

Kurt used a mic, so he rocked." ...Paul

Thanks to Kyle (Bachnroll) and Willie, we have those Buzz ridden tracks right here. The tracks are in MP3 format from vinyl record, so some of you youngsters will hear pops from the needle. Hope you enjoy!

I know about the horrors of plugging a guitar directly into the board.

My brother did the same thing when we recorded some songs a few years back... sounded exactly like Mr. Gilbert described; unnatural and buzzy.

There was another band called Black Sheep that featured Lou Gramm and Bruce Turgon pre-Foreigner.

Anyway, I think I'll go back and listen to the Black Sheep tracks with Paul Gilbert some more.
