de la banda
Jim and Rob have been under long-term care for decades. Fortunately,
much of it has been together, if not at the same institutions, at least
in the same city - giving them the chance to engage in repeated abuse
of the art form of music, both on radio and in the studio. They first
played together while both were jammin’ jocks on the world’s highest
rated radio station - KAKC, Tulsa. They have collaborated musically in
other cities over the centuries, listed below.
By drawing them
together once again in LA, fate has handed them their heads on a
platter. Spirit Alley, the band of a lifetime. Wow. Jim and Rob have
been writing songs and singing them together in Tulsa, Memphis,
Miami-Fort Lauderdale, Dallas, Los Angeles, in airplanes, over the
phone, in penthouses and in ratty basements with scum on the walls.
Now, as magic would have it, the chance to be fruitful and multiply in
Spirit Alley. Max joined in originally as the bass player of the
mythical Tulsa/Memphis band Cargoe, produced by Rob and JIm, which in
turn has produced another long-term, very fruitful relationship between
the three of them, with lots of good songs.
Along comes Ben,
popping right out into his Dad’s hands that crazy day the midwife was
late in South Miami Heights, Florida. Everybody knew right away he was
destined to play, but we were all so hugely pleased to discover it
would be in Spirit Alley - giving Jim and Ben the great gift of working
together as father and son. Tim, we found out, was a drummer hanging
out with big sister Maia’s arts group in LA. “He helped us out by
drumming a couple of tunes, and then we thought he was our drummer,”
said Spirit Alley. As it turns out, he was.
In between, Tim’s
been to London (to visit the Queen), Max has constructed American
Airlines’ computerized networks, Ben’s been classically and studio
trained at USC, Rob has been nominated for a Grammy, and Jim’s had a
national request show on ABC Classic Rock. Fun, but...not Spirit
Alley. There has never been NOTHIN’ like Spirit Alley.
