EP Phone Home Tracklisting
01. Dirty Bomb
02. Let Em Know
03. Homage
04. Better Weather
05. High On The Horizon (Demo)

From the beginning, the clever humor of vocalist Dryden Mitchell and guitarist Terry Corso has delivered visual imagery that made the band vanguards in the realm of music video. All of the singles released received heavy rotation on MTV and MTV2, with “Smooth Criminal” voted as the #2 video of 2001 on MTV’s countdown. They appeared on the channel’s programs Celebrity Dismissed, MTV Cribbs, and hosted an episode of House of Style. Alongside the massive support from cable, Alien Ant Farm were darlings of broadcast television with multiple appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and support from Carson Daly, Extra, CNN, Access Hollywood and Mad-TV amongst many more. With all the notoriety also came a 2001 Grammy nomination for Best Hard Rock Performance in 2001.

Come 2014 Alien Ant Farm are back, and the path for the future will unfold one day at a time.  As their career approaches two decades, Guitarist Corso offers, ” Although we spent a couple of years quiet, there is no denying the chemistry when we all get back into a room and on the road together. The band, the show, and the songs are just better when we are all together and have a fresh outlook on how we want to get back and give back to our fans.” Drummer Cosgrove echoes, “It’s good to be back in the swing of things with getting new music out and back on the road in front of those who have supported us for so long and to meet new fans that might have just been turned onto Alien Ant Farm.” With strong repertoire, great attitudes, and a fan base that has been there every step of the way, the future is lining up nicely for Alien Ant Farm.

ALWAYS AND FOREVER: Dryden Mitchell On Alien Ant Farm’s Triumphant Return!

ALWAYS AND FOREVER: Dryden Mitchell On Alien Ant Farm’s Triumphant Return!

alien-ant-farm-2014-group-1

Since the formation of Alien Ant Farm in 1995, have experienced a plethora of highs and lows on their roller coaster ride to fame. The early history of the band began when the name came from a daydream Terry Corso had while employed at a day job. The concept revolves around the human species being cultivated by alien intelligence, and the colony forming much like it does in a traditional children’s toy. Little did they know that a daydream would manifest itself and eventually become a household name! Here’s their backstory…

In 1999, Alien Ant Farm self-released their debut titled ‘Greatest Hits,’ which went on to win Best Independent Album at the L.A. Music Awards. In 2000, they signed to DreamWorks SKG, and went on to release Anthology. The following year, a cover of Michael Jackson’s “Smooth Criminal” became a massive hit overseas, rising to #1 in Australia and New Zealand, and on the U.S. Modern Rock charts.

From the beginning, the clever humor of vocalist Dryden Mitchell and guitarist Terry Corso has delivered visual imagery that made the band vanguards in the realm of music video. All of the singles released received heavy rotation on MTV and MTV2, with “Smooth Criminal” was voted the #2 video of 2001 on MTV’s countdown. They appeared on the channel’s programs Celebrity Dismissed, MTV Cribs, and hosted House of Style. Alongside the massive support from cable, Alien Ant Farm were darlings of broadcast television with multiple appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and support from Carson Daly, Extra, CNN, Access Hollywood and Mad-TV amongst many more. With all the notoriety also came a 2001 Grammy nomination for Best Hard Rock Performance in 2001.

The Force is strong with this band.

The Force is strong with this band.

In 2003, the Alien Ant Farm entered the studio with Stone Temple Pilots’ Robert and Dean DeLeo and cut ‘Truant.’ Unfortunately, they ran in to unforeseen adversity with the closure of their record label, offering an insurmountable obstacle to continue building on the band’s successes. Still under contract to Universal, Geffen green-lit the opportunity for Alien Ant Farm to return to the studio. In 2005, they recorded with Jim Wirt, but that album was not released as scheduled. Alien Ant Farm chose to share it with with fans via a bootlegged version, which has affectionately been re-named ‘3rd Draft’ by the public. Looking back on the adversity the band went through, alongside the massive fame Mitchell reflects, “This Alien Ant Farm ‘Wave’ is a bigger, longer wave than I could have hoped for. All these years later, we are still intact. From friends to foes to friends again, this band is something special, and nothing short of tight and explosive.”

The next year in 2006 ‘Up In The Attic’ was issued, and for the next several years the members went their separate ways reconvening in 2009 for performances in Kansas City, the Sonisphere Festival in Knebworth, UK and at the WARPED Tour in memory of Michael Jackson. They were back, and come 2010 began to rebuild a legacy that grows with each passing month. The band staged a very successful tour over the Summer and Fall, where they road tested new material in front of the live audience. In the New Year, they’ll release the new recordings. Mitchell shares, “The First batch of these new songs are pretty to the point and pissed. Angry, but not negative. That is possible in this non tangible, musical and lyrical world. Unfortunately not possible in the real world, and that’s why I love music. I can get this all out without hurting anyone.”

As their career approaches two decades, Dryden offers, “Its hard to believe we have been doing this as long as we have, I don’t think any of us thought when we started out that our career would go onto do what it has, or that we would face some of the hurdles and losses that we have but here we stand ready to give our fans and the world another piece of Alien Ant Farm, we honestly have the best fans in the business, not only have they stuck with us through all of the personal up’s and down’s but they have never given up on our music and how we create and deliver what we feel is real and pure. We are ready to head down this path again and could not be happier with our new partners at The End Records, there’s nothing like having a team of believers around you that support your visions.”

It’s no secret that the quartet has enjoyed worldwide success and, over the course of their four studio albums, have had their cumulative sales surpass five million units a Grammy nomination and 4 top 10 singles. However, the best is yet to come! Armed with Dryden Mitchell’s amazing vocals, a powerful new single titled “Homage,’ nationwide tour dates to spread the word, a never-say-die spirit and an eclectic new album in the chamber; the band has it’s sights set on a bright future! Jason Price of Icon Vs. Icon recently caught up with Alien Ant Farm’s Dryden Mitchell to discuss his musical roots, the longevity of the band, their recent label struggles and what went into bringing their long-awaited new album, ‘Always And Forever,’ to life.

Alien Ant Farm's Dryden Mitchell

Alien Ant Farm’s Dryden Mitchell

What are some of the first memories of music in your life and who were some of the influences who had a big effect on you?

My dad would play acoustic guitar when I was a kid and it was a really powerful thing. I was really into Edie Brickell when I was in my early teens. Her music had this whole feel that really appealed to me, the softer side of an acoustic guitar and a vocal. Joni Mitchell was another big influence on me.

A career in the music business isn’t always an easy route. What made you take the plunge to make music your career?

I guess it started with not really knowing what else to do. I felt really comfortable in these rooms with other musicians. Although I wasn’t the most studied guy in the band, I felt I could hang with the guys who were a lot more technical than me. It felt nice and it felt comfortable. Having it turn into a career might not have been the intention but I’m very pleased that I have been able to experience what I have through music. I have been able to buy a relatively nice home and live off of music. That is really amazing!

Alien Ant Farm has been around for almost 20 years. How has the band evolved through the years?

Early on, we kind of plucked who we thought to be some of the better musicians in our hometown from other projects and found our way together. We ruled a couple of shows and tried to grow it from the West Coast outward. That was the plan! We tried to gig as much as possible. What I said earlier about being comfortable in the room with musicians turned into trying to get comfortable in front of crowds. That felt awesome as well. I am hoping we can spark a little bit of a comeback this year. I want to be persistent and gig the hell out of this year. That is all I can kind of ask for right now!

Your captain for this journey; Dryden Mitchell.

Your captain for this journey; Dryden Mitchell.

You have new music on the way this year. What can you tell us about the past few years of Alien Ant Farm?

We have been writing. I did a lot of co-writes and I did writing with just Alien Ant Farm in the room. We wrote about 65 songs, which is something we have never done before. Usually, we write about 16 songs and then three will make the record. This one was stacked up! Things went awry with our old label. We have been kind of sitting on our hands with this music. It was already recorded and we were legally bound, so we couldn’t really do anything with it. We are still trying to climb out of that quicksand right now and get the music out with the quickness in the next month or so, hopefully!

It is great to hear there is light at the end of the tunnel. What can you tell us about the album and what you have been up to musically?

It is called “Always And Forever.” It is the same acronym as Alien Ant Farm, AAF. We just thought it was a fitting title. I’m always going to play music, so this is another chapter in the book of songs I have been writing. I have been working on a lot of stuff. I have a pretty nice studio here in my home. I track with a harp player, just him and I, getting back to the folk stuff I dig. This harpist and I have created some really cool stuff and I am really stoked on it. I mean, it isn’t Alien Ant Farm, it is another thing I have been up to right now. I have all kinds of ideas I would like to pursue but I would rather see Alien Ant Farm get some wheels back and flourish in any way it sees fit to flourish.

What can you tell us about these new songs? How do they compare and contrast to what we know from the band?

Every given day I was thrown into a different scenario with a co-write of something. When you are going to a studio that you have never been to and sitting down with someone you may never have met is a cool experience. You can come up with some awesome stuff because you are on the spot. This record is kind of schizophrenic in a way. There is this old school feel, with little tinges of heavy metal but then there are some pretty poppy songs on there. We were just doing what we felt on any given day, throwing it at the wall and seeing what stuck. There is nothing cohesive about it but I like that about it. In the past, we have dabbled with straight up Latin music that is traditional and cool! We have a song called “Tia Lupe” on “Truant” and it is pretty real stuff. If the band can pull it off, it is fun to try what we can.

Is there a process you have for songwriting, whether it’s for the band or yourself?

Not really. I wish I was a little tighter and there was some type of formula. I like to think I play guitar more than I actually sing. I will find a little riff that is a verse and then track that. Then I will start my vocal by flirting with that riff and find the chorus vocally. I start stacking stuff from there. It is kind of like a toddler with building blocks in a way! [laughs]

Alien Ant Farm's "Homage" - Available Now!

Alien Ant Farm’s “Homage” – Available Now on iTunes!

Obviously, this album didn’t come together as easily as a normal album might. What was the biggest challenge you encountered?

Getting it out, man. That is it! With every other experience, if it was in our hands or if we had a label that was on our side, from the day we knew we were going to do a record, we would maybe take a month or two months of writing. Then we would spend about six weeks in the studio and we were done. The process for this album has been whack. We have been interfered with and it sucks. Now, we are getting things corralled and we have The End Records out of Brooklyn helping us. We can definitely see some light at the end of the tunnel, so that is definitely cool.

The folks over at The End Records are great. It is cool to see Alien Ant Farm join forces with them to make this album happen.

Yeah, things are looking cool for us! We have a couple little ideas that are going to snap off here in the next month and then we should be off and running! We just did six weeks on the road and now I am back home hanging out with my daughter for a few days. I get to spend a little bit of time here and then go out and do the second leg of this tour. Then hopefully we will be off to Europe and wherever else they take us!

Of this new material, what songs most resonate with you?

“Homage” is great, man. It is like a little heart-string puller for me! Maybe some people might say, “This doesn’t sound like Alien Ant Farm … ” but to me it doesn’t matter. I don’t even know what Alien Ant Farm sounds like, so if we do a song, and I love it at the time, I just love it. “Homage” is great! We also have a song called “Dirty Bomb” on the record that sounds like very early Ant Farm with tinges of metal, like I said. There is a song called “American Pie” that is a really big sounding song. I am really happy with the whole album and I can’t wait for people to hear it. I wish I could intrude on 700 million computers like U2 did! [laughs] That would be rad! I love how people are bitching about it! Who cares! Why are you mad at U2?! [laughs]

With everything you have been through in the past several years and putting this new material together, what did you learn along the way?

Honestly, I am just trying to be a sober boy, man. It is not a new story that people traveling around like hobos on a van start to do drugs and alcohol. I am happy to be five months sober. That is like nothing really but it is a really great feeling to climb out of that web. It gives me more time for the people I love and to do a lot more music. I am not wasting my time getting drunk because it sucks.

Dryden and his baby girl.

Dryden and his baby girl.

You mentioned your child and I know you have another on the way. How has fatherhood impacted you?

It’s a trip, man! Ya know, Ant Farm was stagnant for quite a few years, so it wasn’t like I wasn’t accustomed to being at home but being at home with kids is crazy! This little girl is a trip, man! She is staring at me right now and laughing. She has completely become humanized since I got home from the first leg of the tour. It was only six weeks but six weeks for a 10-month-old baby is a big change. It is really cool to see! She is amazing for sure!

Speaking of getting back out on tour, what can people expect from your live show?

We just try to play tight, man. I am not frontman. I guess people who are fans would probably disagree and would think it is great but I don’t know what to say to these homies that are watching. We just do our thing and hopefully people get into it as well.

What is your biggest professional milestone with Alien Ant Farm?

Just staying around for all these years is a bit of a milestone. We have some real highs and some super lows along the way. I broke my neck touring in Spain in a bad bus crash but we have also had some rad nights! Freakin’ James Hetfield of Metallica took me and my parents to dinner. It is crazy to think back on it and hear someone like that say, “You are a good singer.” It makes you say, “Whoa! Am I fooling everyone or is some of this real?” That is really cool and I guess it is a milestone, ya know?

How have you evolved as an artist?

I don’t know if I have evolved. I think you learn the majority of what you know at 5 or 6 years old. You get a little wiser, I guess. I think I tend to gravitate to things that are more simple musically to find the core of it. I guess I am learning in that way.

alien-ant-farm-antarchy-tour-2014

Alien Ant Farm is on tour!

What does the future holds for Alien Ant Farm in both the short and long term?

Short term, we are hitting the road for the second leg of the tour. I think if we can keep it on the road and get a little scratch to maintain it, I think this band has a real chance at having some real relevance again, so real relevance.

Gene Simmons recently made the statement that rock is dead. What is your feeling on the current state of rock?

I don’t know. Maybe it is. Didn’t Lenny Kravitz say that in a song like 12 years ago? [laughs] He is the real rocker! He is like the only rocker out there! Ya know what? Rock ‘n’ roll is limping along. It is like blue jeans. It goes out for a little bit and comes back but it is always there. Rock ‘n’ roll is pretty lame right now but I don’t think it is dead but it is certainly lame.

You have seen a lot of changes in the music industry during your career. What is the best piece of advice you can give to those looking to make their career in the industry in today’s climate?

I don’t know. I would say looking towards the engineering side of things might be the best bet, editing and things like that. Times have changed so much, I don’t know what advice to give. We were the last of the platinum babies, when records still sold, we got a little glimpse of that. It seems a little tougher now. My advice? I don’t know. Be badass, I guess! [laughs]

Thanks for your time today, Dryden. We are definitely excited for this new material and will be spreading the word!

Awesome! Thanks so much for your time, man! I really appreciate it. I look forward to seeing you on tour.

Reid. After mining by the Estate of Jackson’s archives, Reid was granted unlimited access to the treasures spanning four decades of material on which Jackson had completed his vocals.

The list of producers include global hitmakers Timbaland, Rodney Jerkins, Stargate and John McClain.

COREYOGRAPHY: Corey Feldman On His Autobiography, New Music and More!

COREYOGRAPHY: Corey Feldman On His Autobiography, New Music and More!

corey-feldman-feature-2013-1

Having spent the entirety of his life in the spotlight, Corey Feldman is instantly recognizable from his roles in “Gremlins,” “The Goonies,” “Stand By Me,” “Dream A Little Dream” and “The Lost Boys,” Entertaining movie going audiences worldwide for the better part of three decades, he has become ingrained in the fabric of the pop culture landscape. His meteoric rise in Hollywood would lead him to dizzying heights as a teen idol. It was a journey on which he would experience the highest of highs and the lowest of lows on the overwhelming roller coaster ride of fame. As the years flew by, his larger than life persona easy target for the media to exploit and rumors, misinformation, speculation and outright lies began to run rampant. Now, Feldman stands ready to clear the air with a remarkably gripping memoir — ‘Coreyography.’ The autobiography is a revealing look at what his life was like behind the scenes: a past that included physical, drug, and sexual abuse, a dysfunctional family from which he was emancipated at age fifteen, three high-profile arrests for drug possession, a nine-month stint in rehab, and a long, slow crawl back to the top of the box office. ‘Coreyography’ is his surprising and inspiring account of survival and redemption in Hollywood.

Entertaining the masses for over three decades, Feldman shows no signs of slowing down. In fact, to hear him tell it, this is only the first chapter in an already epic tale. Jason Price of Icon vs. Icon caught up with Corey Feldman deep in the heart of a whirlwind press tour on the eve of the memoir’s release to discuss a few of our burning questions. In the interview, Corey discusses what made now the time to tell his story, his feelings on the reactions of those looking to quickly dismiss his account of his life’s events and what lessons can be learned from his story. It doesn’t stop there as there! Feldman gives us the scoop on the evolution of his upcoming highly anticipated solo album, tentatively titled ‘Angelic to the Core’, along with all of the other projects he has in store in the months to come!

What made now the time for you to write an autobiography, which not only outlines the highlights of your life so far but also the darker times?

Available Now!

Available Now!

The problem has always been that the press likes to misconstrue my words and the media has twisted the perception of me to the masses. I have always spoken from an honest place. I have always tried to get the stories told but never in the clear, concise way that I would have wished. Therefore, now is the time because I have finally gotten enough people to believe in it and want to hear the truth. I think it is more of a testament to the public standing and them calling and crying for the truth to be heard, than it is a testament to me of finally accomplishing getting it done.

When you go into this process, did you have any reservations about telling your story?

Of course I was very trepidatious about it. It is not one of those shocking, tell-all books where I am out there blasting people. It is not like that at all, as a matter of fact! You won’t find anything negative about anybody in the book, other than the wrongdoers. Those people will obviously be ashamed or embarrassed by it, but they deserve to because they have done wrong. People who might have done something controversial or less than glamorous are not going to be put on blast because that is not what it is. I am not trying to do that. I felt that if I could be as forthright as possible and bring about the topics that I think the public most need to know the answer to, that was the most important thing for me to accomplish. It is a two-fold thing. Number one, it is setting the record straight and clearing the air of some great misconceptions about myself and some of my friends. Number two, it is speaking up for Corey Haim, who doesn’t have a voice to do so. The thing I find interesting is the backlash of people, which is mostly coming from within his family and close friends. They are saying I am doing it for money, I am trying to make him look bad, and that I am trying to diminish his name or worth – which it is exactly the opposite. That is the stark opposite of the truth, which only leads me to the conclusion that they feel some part of responsibility or shame in themselves. The point of the book is not to make Haim look bad, shameful, or anything like that. At the end of the day, the mission is to show everybody that not only was he a great and talented actor, an amazing person, and my best friend in the world, but to let everybody know that he was unrightfully shamed, thrown under the bus and swept under the carpet as a result of the things that were done wrong to him in the first place. The bottom line or big message of this whole story is that it was a convenient side-step for them to make us look like freaks, losers and weirdoes, as opposed to recognizing us for our talent or our craft. They disregarded us and said we were over with and swept us under the carpet because it was so much easier to be able to dismiss whatever stories might come out.

Feldman and Haim

Feldman and Haim

It all originated with Corey [Haim] asking me to do this. It is not, at all, that I am taking my own liberties. It stemmed from a conversation we had about a year before his death, which was the end of the second season of “The Two Coreys.” We had a very private discussion in my bathroom after a photo shoot that we had done to promote the show. I had already said publicly that we were done for awhile and we couldn’t be friends for awhile. We knew we weren’t going to work together again for awhile. Again, that was at the end of the second season. We had to do some promo work where we were forced to be together. At the end of it, he buttered me up and said, “I am sorry about the way things went down but could we at least have dinner to clear the air before we have this sabbatical?” That is what we did. He came over to my house. It was him and his Mom, Susie, and I. We made dinner for them. Corey and I went alone together into my bathroom and he said to me, “I just want you to know I did all of this for a reason. I want the truth to be told.” I said to him, “Then why don’t you tell your story?” He said “I would love to, but how?” I said, “Well you write a book.” He said he couldn’t do that and I asked why. He said “Because if I do that, all those people will come after me. I still have to function. I need a career. I can’t just give up my career like that.” I said, “I understand that but the truth needs to be told and people need to be brought to justice.” He said, “I can’t do it. I am too afraid, but you could do it for me.” I said to him, “I can’t do that. It is not my story to tell.” He said, “You can tell my story. I want you to tell my story. Please.” I told him I couldn’t do that now; if maybe one day I was around and he was gone, that was another story, but not while he was here on this Earth. He said, “I have a feeling I am not going to be here much longer.” He always knew he wasn’t going to live very long. He said, “I know I am not going to be here too much longer but after I am gone, I would appreciate if you got that taken care of for me and told the real story.” I said, “Ok. Let me see what I can do.”

That was kind of where things were left. We didn’t speak for a year and then after that we did rekindle our friendship. We became very close; in fact, we were closer than we had ever been before. We got back together when he called me one day and said, “I know that you have lost a lot of close people in your life recently. I know you are going through a lot of emotional changes and turbulence and my Mom has cancer. We both have some real life issues going on. I know we have had some problems in the past but let’s put all of that behind us and just be there for each other. Let’s forget about the show and everything else, let’s just be there for each other.” I said to him, “You know, you are right.” I came over to his house. I saw him and his Mom and the condition she was in and where they were living. That is when they were living at The Oakwoods. From that time on, we bonded. We were like brothers again. We were together pretty much every day until right before he died. The day he died, he was supposed to have a dentist appointment with the dentist I got him. I had been taking his Mom to chemotherapy treatments because they didn’t have a car to get around. They try to downplay it and say we weren’t even that close and we drifted apart. It is public record anyway! You can go on public record and see the last few interviews he gave in his life were in two different locations and I was there with him both times. Obviously, we were close and we were together. You have all these people crawling out of the woodwork saying “Feldman is just doing it to benefit from him. They weren’t even really close or great friends. Corey hated him.” Its like, “What are you talking about?” It is all backpedaling. At the end of the day, there were adult responsible parties in Corey’s life who need to claim responsibility for the life that he took. They don’t want to take that responsibility, so they are trying to throw it back on me. Let’s be honest, where is my place in his life and where are the parents? I wasn’t there when he was eleven years old. It wasn’t my responsibility.

Obviously, the book doesn’t just focus on your relationship with Corey Haim. It focuses on your highs, your lows and everything in between.

That’s right. That is why I find it so insulting that they are trying to minimize it to that because as you say, it covers the gamut. It covers a plethora of topics in my life, Corey being one of them.

What can you tell us about the process of putting the book together? I imagine looking back on your life and trying to encapsulate it on a few hundred pages is no easy task.

Corey Feldman

Corey Feldman

It is funny you say that because I actually say that in the beginning of the book. The very first chapter starts off with the moment of Corey Haim’s death. Then I say, “This is what my life has become. This is what I have gone through. This is where I am today. How did I get here? Let’s go back to the beginning.” To me, it has always been very obvious that if you are going to tell a story, you have to start at the beginning. However, when I first conceived writing this book, which was about ten years ago, the initial thought was that I was going to start in my darkest hour. It was going to start with my own personal darkest hour, which was the night of my drug arrest. So much has happened in the past ten years. There have a great number of different highs and a great number of lows that have toppled those thoughts. The thing about life and the writing a memoir at an early age such as mine is that I have only experienced a fraction of what I may experience in my life, if I am lucky to live as old as I’d like to live. I plan to live to one hundred and twenty-two; that is my goal. I believe I can do that because I believe science and technology will have advanced by the time I am that age, and the potential of a life span such as that is a real possibility. Provided God allows us to stay on this Earth long enough, I believe science will allow us to maintain life, if we can. With that said, there are a lot of different ways you could approach a memoir. What I felt was most important was to be linear, to give chronology, and also to highlight the things I felt most people wanted to hear about. The thing you have to understand is that my life is a many feathered bird. I have so many stories to tell. I have so many different ideas and thought processes that are not even introduced in this book. We couldn’t even engage and open those doors because of the fact that if you go on one journey and then start diverting yourself on all of these different avenues, it is going to lose the reader’s attention. That is what happens when there is too much diversity, too many options, or too many roads to choose. Since no one could fully understand the scope of my life, the only way to start the discussion is with the first sign. The first sign is what I will consider “Coreyography: Book One”. That is not to say there won’t be a book two, three or four. Honestly, in my writing this book, I feel I am merely skimming the top. I literally feel that way — skimming the milk, as it were, of my life. There literally are so many different avenues which need to be explored and discussed that I feel are relevant and important in mainstream society needs to be educated on. Will there be a sequel? I would say more than likely! [laughs]

The scope of the project is pretty impressive. What do you feel you learned about yourself as a person in document your life in this form?

I certainly learned that my integrity is intact, my virtue remains seamless and my morality is in good standing. I think if anything, this book is going to be a great opportunity for the reader to discover that. Because of all the misconceptions and unwarranted shapes my career path or my persona has taken through the years, it is very, very hard to be able to read between the lines and see what is truth and what is fiction. For me to be able to start that discussion and introduce those topics into the conversation is an amazing reward in and of itself.

With that said, what do you feel is the biggest lesson to be learned from the life and times of Corey Feldman?

Corey Feldman

Corey Feldman

Positivity. Positivity can get you through anything. A belief and a faith system is something we all must have integrated inside of us. As it stands today, the big thing that makes the dark side win is people playing on each other’s fears. Let’s face it. How are we controlled in this society? We are controlled by them manipulating us through our fear. Terrorism, politics, the forcing of things like Marshall Law, the recent government closures and all of these sorts of things play on our fears. We must be individuals and free thinkers who believe in our own integrity. We must believe in our own thought process. We must have faith in a higher power and a higher energy. Not even just God but our own morality. I know the only thing that has made me able to survive all of these things I have been through, all of these terrible things, is the knowledge that if I let it all roll off my back and focus on the positive then I can slide through and keep moving forward. I can stay focused and positive. That is really the goal for every human being on this Earth. People have a tendency to get weighed down from the fear. We all have negatives and positives every day. The choice is ours to focus on the negatives, making them the focal point of our day or to let them roll off our backs and move forward. I believe what you put out there is what you get back. If you put out positive, you get back positive and vice versa. If we chose to focus on the positive and have a divine belief in whatever we are trying to achieve and visualize it becoming a reality, it does in fact become reality. If anybody in the world can honestly prove that point, it is me! Everybody knows I was kicked to the curb. Everybody knows I was long since categorized as a memory. It was as if I was washed away. Instead, here I am, strong, exuberant, happy and excited to share my magic solution, which is realizing your dreams, believing in yourself and staying positive. If you can walk away with that, then I have really achieved something.

I admire your positivity and the way you put yourself out there to do so. Speaking of positivity and moving forward, what can you tell us about the status of your upcoming album? I am curious to hear how it has evolved since we spoke a few months back. (Check out our previous interview with Corey Feldman from July 2013 – Click Here!)

It has been an amazing journey! One of my great new friends is a guy by the name of Brandon Howard. He has been going through the journey with me right now and being very supportive. He happens to be an amazingly talented singer, songwriter, and producer. He is famous in his own right, but a lot of people don’t know him well just yet. He is also connected to The Jackson Family and has worked with them a lot through the years. He is a really amazingly talented kid. I’ve got him on the album now. We have created a big finale for the album called “Mercy.” I am really excited about that! We are going to be making a dynamic video together for the song. The music itself is beautiful. It is a beautiful sentiment! We have a huge choir about it! I can’t tell you enough about it! The music will speak for itself. The point I am trying to make is that this came along as an afterthought to what was already proving to be my greatest achievement musically. Secondly, there is the duet with Fred Durst of Limp Bizkit. At the start of the project, it was going to be maybe writing only collaboration, or possibly a production collaboration. It ended up being a full duet. That came out amazingly; I am really excited this song. I think the pinnacle or center point of the album, which works as a perfect companion piece to “Coreyography” itself, is going to be my next single. It is called “Number 222,” in honor or my dear friend, Corey Haim. I have kind of added all of these colors and flavors to it, where the album itself almost works as a walking timepiece and companion to the book in the sense that there are chapters to this album. There are many different sounds infused throughout.

Corey Feldman

Corey Feldman

Originally, when I first started working on it, I thought it was going to be an electronica album that would be pop, of course, but very heavily driven by the electronica. Then as I started going deeper into it, I began working with Supreme from the Wu Tang Clan, Rick One from the Black Eyed Peas, and other hip hop artists, like this new kid named Ashby, who is great, I became involved with all of these greatly talented people from the hip hop world. So, I started infusing that into the album, which is something I had never done before. At the same time, I am also going back to the rock ‘n’ roll roots with people like Fred Durst, Scotty Page from Pink Floyd, who makes several appearances throughout the album as well. It is just great talent coming together with all of these different sections. It started off with “Accession Millennium,” as a kind of electronica/pop dance song centered around my Corey’s Angels theme and now it is just one chapter of the album. There is a trilogy, which is the first single “Ascension Millennium,” the second single “DUH”, and the third single which is also the title track of the album, “Angelic to the Core.” That is just one section of the album. Then there are all these other sections of the album which find their way through a very interesting process of segues. It takes you on a musical journey where you go from a kind of electronica world that infuses and then we segue ourselves into the next sound and the next sound and so on. It happens in chunks. It is always very strange when you listen to an album where one song is a certain flavor and the next song is another. You find yourself listening to this potpourri of music where nothing really fits together. That isn’t any fun for me as a listener. When you can find a way to fuse all of these different ­sounds together on one album ? that is an adventure! I think that journey coming out alongside the book and telling the stories through the music and the book is really going to give my fans the fuller perception as my life as a whole.

Obviously, it is a bit of a whirlwind for you at the moment with the book release but when do you think you will be finishing up the album?

My hope is to have it out this year, but it isn’t looking realistic at this point. I would say early 2014 at the latest. I would really like to get the third single out in the next couple of weeks. I am certainly hoping to have it released before Christmas. I am also hoping to have the second single’s video, “DUH,” finished and released before Christmas as well. My plan is to do the video with my leading lady from my upcoming film release which is going to be out in early January of 2014. The film is called “The M Word” and is directed by Henry Jaglom. It is going to mark my first starring role in a U.S. theatrical release in over a decade. It is a very big and exciting event for me! The idea is to have my leading lady star in the video with me. Obviously, we want it to be timely. All of this stuff needs to happen against the timeline of everything else. It is interesting. I am working many dynamics all at the same time and making sure it all congeals.

What is happening with Corey’s Angels at the moment?

We have a lot of cool things happening with that project and are moving forward. We talked about the album and the videos but, in addition, we have created a clothing line and a jewelry line. All of these things are melding together! We haven’t gotten the website launched yet and I know I need to do that! I have to update my www.coreyfeldman.net site as well. I know I am really falling behind on some of the smaller elements but, with that said, the bigger picture is tying together nicely. I just ask everybody to bear with me! I know I am promising a lot right now and a lot of my delivery is late but it is all coming! It is all coming! I haven’t dropped or abandoned anything! It is all coming!

I would be remiss if I didn’t mentioned the part you played in the “Camp Crystal Lake Memories” documentary. There has definitely been a big buzz among ‘Friday The 13th’ fans about the terrific job you did on it.

Thanks! That is great to hear! I haven’t had a chance to see it for myself yet! I honestly haven’t had time or been anywhere with a Blu-ray player. They did send me a copy and I am looking forward to it. I hear it is over seven hours! I think during the holidays I am going to take some time off with my child. He isn’t going to watch it but once he goes to bed, I will watch it late at night! I am really looking forward to it!

What other projects should we be on the lookout for in the short term? You certainly have plenty of irons in the fire!

Going back to “Friday The 13th” for a second, there is a project I am trying to get into development right now. I am really pitching to create the final chapter in the ever-elongating chapters, of the “Friday The 13th” series by following up on a vision I had many years ago. That vision is the reuniting face-off between Tommy Jarvis and Jason! I am actually going to be meeting with Sean Cunningham as soon as I finish all of this. As soon as I finish this tour, I am going back to LA and I am going to meet with Sean. We are going to talk about the possibility of making that a reality! That is something I am really excited about. I still am pitching to be a part of the new Star Wars trilogy because that is what I want more than anything. If I could make the self-visualization and self-realization thing I was talking about happen, I see myself in there, ultimately to play Han Solo’s son. That would be my dream job! That is what I really, really want.

Corey Feldman: Ready To Rock!

Corey Feldman: Ready To Rock!

As a fan of your work, it is cool to hear you are in such a positive and creative place. What would you consider the best part of being Corey Feldman these days?

I have a beautiful son! I love him to death. He is my everything! He is my shining light! He is the first person I talked to this morning. I called him on his way to school and said, “Zen, I hope you are thinking about your Dad today. It is a very important day for your Dad!” He said, “Why?” I said, “Because I am doing lots of interviews and they are very important interviews that could really change the world.” He said, “Dad, you are always doing very important interviews that could change the world!” [laughs] I said, “I know. You’re right!” [laughs] He called me out on it! [laughs] That is one of the reasons why I love him so much — his honesty. It is amazing!

As you have said, one of the reasons you wrote “Coreyography” to speak to your fans. Anything you want to say to them directly before I let you go today?

I just have to say one more time, thank you all for your love and support. Thank you all for staying by my side through the most tumultuous times. There have been a lot of haters and a lot of negative people trying to throw mud at me, put me down, and have me dead and buried. All I can say is that if it wasn’t for the fans, they might have won. Due to the never-ending support and love of these beautiful people, I am here! I am thriving, healthy, good, positive, and ready to rock ‘n’ roll! Let’s make it happen!

“Coreyography” is available now wherever fine books are sold! For the latest from Corey Feldman news, visit www.coreyfeldman.net. Be sure to interact with Corey via Twitter at twitter.com/Corey_Feldman.

Metal Superstars Reinvent Michael Jackson’s Biggest Hits On A New Tribute Album

Metal Superstars Reinvent Michael Jackson’s Biggest Hits On A New Tribute Album

A hard rockin' tribute!

A hard rockin’ tribute!

Just in time for Halloween, a scarily impressive alliance of metal and hard rock luminaries has formed to create one of the most depraved abominations of musical crossbreeding in history – an all metal tribute to the King Of Pop, Michael Jackson, available on CD October 22!

Never before have such quintessential pop hits as “Beat It,” “Thriller,” “Billy Jean” and “Man In The Mirror” been so completely transformed, substituting softly stylized synths with crunchy, distorted guitars, replacing the pitter patter of programmed beats with pulverizing double bass acoustic drums, and topping it off with some of the finest, most powerful vocals in metal. When completed, these reinventions pay due respect to the expertly crafted melodies and songs that made Michael Jackson one of the most beloved figures in all of music, and offer legions of metalheads a reason to simultaneously grab their crotchesand throw the horns in celebration!

Spearheaded by producer/musician Bob Kulick, who also helped in the arrangement of these cover versions, the project was in his words a “labor of love” for all involved. Exclaims Kulick, “We made these awesome songs kick ass while still being faithful to the original versions. Add killer players like Doug Aldrich, Billy Sheehan, Bruce Kulick, Rudy Sarzo, Tony Franklin, Craig Goldy, Bumblefoot, Phil Campbell and you’ve got some real MAGIC!” Rudy Sarzo, a stalwart of the metal scene as a member of both Quiet Riot and Queensrÿche, reflects, “Michael Jackson’s music is synonymous with iconic rockers such as Eddie Van Halen, Steve Stevens and Slash. So it’s only fitting that the rock community pays tribute to this legendary artist with Metal Mike!” And Fishbone’s Angelo Moore expresses great enthusiasm for his contribution, saying “I never thought I would hear myself doing a cover of ‘The Way You Make Me Feel,’ but it’s an honor and a dream come true. We put a different twist on it to give it a whole new light, or maybe I should say a whole new dark!”

In addition to the legends Kulick enlisted, several of today’s modern metal figures also contributed, including Elias Soriano of Nonpoint, who comments, “It was my pleasure to do this tribute to MJ. My admiration for the talent and history he has given to music overall will be hard to replace. My only wish is that I did him justice with my performance.” Jason Myers, of Icarus Witch, one of the current flag bearers in the traditional metal scene, declares, “When we were approached by Cleopatra to contribute to the Michael Jackson tribute we were honored (due to the legendary talent already on board), but a bit skeptical about how our fans would react…Choosing an unorthodox hit took a bit of pressure off and allowed us to put more of ourselves into the track.”

Finally, bassist Tony Franklin, who has worked with everyone from Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page to Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour to Whitesnake, confirms the surprise and astonishment many felt during the creation of the album, “The first thing I noticed was how easily these out and out pop songs translated to the metal genre. That is the sign of, one, a great song and, two, a great production and arrangement.” He goes on to note that it wasn’t just the songs that were transformed when Metal met Pop on these recordings; the performers themselves were transformed. He states, “It was very cool to see how the guest artists interpreted these songs as it brought out a different side of them – a side we wouldn’t usually hear.”

1. Thriller – Chuck Billy (Testament)

2. Man In The Mirror – Danny Worsnop (Asking Alexandria) & Billy Sheehan (Mr. Big)

BRAND NEW ERA: Corey Feldman On His Ambitious New Solo Album And More!

BRAND NEW ERA: Corey Feldman On His Ambitious New Solo Album And More!

corey-feldman-feature-2013-1

Instantly recognizable from his roles in “The Goonies,” “Stand By Me,” “Dream A Little Dream” and “The Lost Boys,” Corey Feldman has been entertaining movie going audiences worldwide for the better part of three decades. Along the way he has become ingrained in the fabric of the pop culture landscape. With his highly-anticipated autobiography, titled “Coreyography,” on the way in the Fall, Feldman stands ready to clear the air of the rumors and misinformation which has swirled around him for years.

What is often overlooked about this multi-faceted artist is his work as a talented musician and performer who has released an impressive body of music through the years. His latest musical endeavor is without a doubt his most ambitious to date. The as yet untitled solo album is his first solo release since 2005, and follows “Technology Analogy,” released by his band, Truth Movement, in 2009. The new album will have 15 new tracks (and some bonus tracks at certain retailers) and features collaborations with Fred Durst (Limp Bizkit), Kaya Jones (Pussycat Dolls), Scotty Page (Pink Floyd), Supreme (Wu Tang/Killer Beez), and DJ R1ckone of Black Eyed Peas fame. The sound of Feldman’s new project will focus on electronica/dance with some hip-hop, pop and a few good old-fashioned rock and roll songs.

The video for the lead-off track, “Ascension Millennium,” recently premiered on MTV to rave reviews from fans and critics around the globe. Running four minutes and 20 seconds, the video was shot in real-time and chronicles Feldman’s day in the life journey through his world. This high energy video also reunites him onscreen with Goonies co-star, Sean Astin, for the first time in over 25 years. However, the MTV video release is part of the first wave of promotion of Feldman’s brand launch of Corey’s Angels! This exciting new brand will include the launch of his new 360 production, development, and agency, coupled with a private membership club and members website. Corey’s Angels will be featured in a brand new web series, videos, films and more! Jason Price of Icon vs. Icon recently sat down with Corey Feldman to discuss his earliest memories of music, the creation of his upcoming electronica driven solo album, the challenges of bringing it to life, the launch of his Corey’s Angels project and everything he has in store for us in the second half of 2013!

As many people know by now, you are more than just an actor. You have an entire separate musical side to your life. I was curious to learn a little more about where it all began and hear about your first memories of music.

That is a good question. Actually, it all started at my Grandma’s house. I was pretty much raised by my grandmother and I lived with her as a child. She had an old record player and a lot of old records lying around. The first albums I remember seeing where by Bill Haley and The Comets. That is where the connection was made. She also had a lot of old jazz records and old time classical stuff but out of all the records she had, the only one I recognized was from Bill Haley and The Comets because they were responsible for the theme from “Happy Days”. When I put it on, I heard “Rock Around The Clock” and “See You Later Alligator,” so I would sing them over and over and over. There was something even before that. A lot of people don’t know this but when I was three years old and first starting to go on auditions and getting into the business, which is such a ridiculous statement but true, my mom would make me learn songs to use when I went in to audition for movie parts and commercials. When I would go into an acting audition, I would actually go into the room singing! I would be prepared to sing any number of songs but usually it was a catchy little folk song like “Junk Food Junkie” by Jim Croce or “Put On A Happy Face,” things like that you would hear in tap or singing class. Even the Oscar Meyer song! I was telling a friend the other day it was one of the first songs I had to sing on auditions. I would sing these cutey-cute little songs when I went in and that is what helped get me the role. A lot of people don’t know that. It really started in singing but for my own musically tastes, it started with bill Haley and The Comets. Shortly thereafter, I got into my first teen-star pop icon, who was Shaun Cassidy, who was very popular in the early 70s. As far as my first rock band, it was KISS!

Those influences are what got us here today. Now, you are apparently bringing music videos back to MTV with the release of your new song “Ascension Millennium”. (Check out the full story and video! – Click Here!)

Yeah! [laughs] In a way.

What can you tell us about the song, the video and the processes of bringing it all to life?

Corey Feldman: Ready To Rock!

Corey Feldman: Ready To Rock!

The song itself has a fun story about how it became a thing — it’s creation. It was really done as a bit of a joke. I was actually sitting in the studio, here at my home, which is where I recorded the entire album. I was sitting around with my former assist, who some may remember from show “The Two Coreys,” his name is Jake. He was over at The Feld-Mansion, as we call it, and we were in the studio. I was working on a guitar solo for another project, which isn’t part of this upcoming album but a tribute album I am planning to honor some of my influences, which will be released in the next few years. Anyway, I was working on a guitar solo for the cover I was working on and he was very excited to hear it. He said “Oh my God! I just got to witness Corey Feldman doing his first ever guitar solo!” Typically, I leave the musicianship to the musicians and try to stay away from it other than the writing and singing. However, with this new arm of work I am doing now, I finally have delved deeper into it and I am playing a lot of the instruments that you hear. I was doing the track and he made that comment and was being kinda cheeky about it. I was like “Well, it is pretty impressive, I know! If you want to be really impressed, watch this! I will show you how a song is made from scratch!” I asked my engineer if he could throw up a good drum sound onto my MIDI. I started playing some drums and said “Ok, now give me a bass. Give me this, give me that.” I shot through about thirty different tracks in about an hour and a half and the became the musical base of “Ascension Millennium”.

Corey and Sean Astin Reunited

Corey and Sean Astin Reunited

It was literally written in an hour and a half. When I wrapped it up and headed to bed for the night, I already had the main hook but I didn’t know what was going to go there. I felt some lyric needed to happen over it. I just kinda started thinking about what fits in that space and what is the most relevant topic on everyone’s mind at the time. It was right before the big, possible end of the world event in 2012 when I was writing it. It was like “Oh my God! Everyone is talking about the end of the world right now!” The big topic at hand was the Ascension because everybody believed if it was going to be the end of the world, maybe we weren’t dying but we were ascending into another place. I thought, even if it didn’t happen, we are all still ascending on some level anyway. I think that being more than just a pop song, I feel it is a testament to where the social thinking is today, the overwhelming analysis of the contemporary pulse of America, and the world over, is really about trying to move forward into this new millennium with some form of enlightenment. I think that is what it is about — trying to enlighten ourselves and bring ourselves into another form of being, a higher self, a higher consciousness.

This is just the first single off of your yet to be titled solo album. What is the status of the album at this point in time?

Still working away. We are mostly finished with it now. I would say that all but one song has been written. It is going to be a very hefty album and we’re imagining it is going to be anywhere from fifteen to eighteen songs. It is definitely the biggest album I have ever done and it certainly has the most celebrity cameos of any album I have done. The last album had a lot of great people on it. We had John Carin and Scott Page from Pink Floyd and Mark Karan from The Other Ones and Ratdog. We had a good list of people on there but this new one is kind of taking it to the whole pop world what we did with The Truth Movement in the classic rock world. On this album, so far we have Fred Durst of Limp Bizkit and Rick One who is the DJ/producer for Black Eyed Peas. He has produced an co-written a bunch of stuff on there. Thomas Van Musser is on there as well. He is a songwriter for Black Eyed Peas and he helped write “Where Is The Love?” He co-wrote and co-produced a couple the songs. We also have Supreme from Wu-Tang/Killer Beez. He does a little hip-hop song with me on there. Kaya Jones, formerly of the Pussycat Dolls, who is now a solo artist does a duet with me. There is a lot of really awesome talent on the album!

There are a lot of different worlds coming together on this album. How would you describe the album sonically?

I would say it is more electronica driven than anything. The theme of the album is definitely heavily influenced by electronica. I don’t want to box it in by categorizing it too much but I will say it is a heavily electronica influenced dance album with a touch of pop, hip-hop and rock to fill in the colors of the palette around it. For the most part, it is going to be a heavy electronic dance album and there will be a lot of remixes coming out as well.

How has your songwriting process evolved through the years? Do you have a specific process you follow when creating new music?

Corey Feldman

Corey Feldman

I always had up until now. My typically process was getting a tune in my head and I would marry that to some type of topic, idea or theme and go from there. Based on whatever the lyric and melody was, I would formulate the music around it by hearing the bass line or drum beat and expressing that to the musicians. That whole process has changed with this new album because by having a studio in my home and being able to record when I feel the need to record, it has left it much more open for inspiration. What is happening now is I am getting into the studio with my engineer and pull up some sounds and start meddling. I find a good drum beat that I like and put it down, then I grab a bass line and put it down. I am literally creating everything out of the air. My right hand man in the studio is a guy named Greg Cerentino, he is my ace in the whole! My secret weapon! This guy is a multiple instrumentalist, singer, writer, producer and everything! He is just a genius in the studio. He has been really, really helpful to me because anything I can’t do, he will do! In other words, if I am playing a bass part and I just can’t quite hit it, I will turn it over to him and he will lay it down. For the most part, this album is comprised of me and him in the studio. Then we bring other people in as we go. I might say “Oh, I want to do a duet. It should be a sexy little duet with a girl. Ok, who am I friends with that is kinda happening in the pop world right now? Oh yeah, Kaya Jones! She is releasing a new solo album! Let’s go with her.” It something like that, where it all happens really organically.

Looking back on the process of bringing the new project together and exploring new territory, what has been the biggest challenge for you along the way?

First of all, I like to look at it as the album having a couple of layers. I am going to give it to you straight here, a couple of things people don’t know are coming but are fun! Number one is there is a trilogy of songs that kick off the album. That is due to my new brand, which is called Corey’s Angels. Because of Corey’s Angels, we are featuring this angel theme along with the “Ascension Millennium” theme and the tone of the song and video and what it is all about. We kinda go further into that topic of angels and such and living on a higher elevated plain of thinking. There are three songs dedicated to that theme. The first song is “Ascension Millennium.” The second song is called “Angelic To The Core” and as you can see, that ties together very nicely. That one is about good verses evil and there is a kind of referee voice in the middle. That is they way I look at it, good, evil and something in the middle. The third song is called “DUH,” which is going to be one of the Corey’s Angels branding logos. The Angel logo stands for “Done Under The Halo,” meaning if you are part of Corey’s Angels, you can get away with anything if it is done under the halo. That is the third one. Aside from the trilogy, you go into other departments and sections of the album. Aside from the Fred Durst song, which I think is quite great you have the Supreme song which is called “Lickity Splickity,” which I like a lot too. The one I think people will be really excited about besides those is the tribute to Corey Haim. There is a song on there which I wrote as a tribute song to my best friend. It is very deep and meaningful but probably not what people would expect. As opposed to doing something very dark and depressing to bring up a bunch of ugly emotions, I decided to go in the other direction. It is a very happy, positive, bouncy type of song which really brings people back to time when things were a little bit happier. I figured stay on the positive and don’t focus on the negative!

Are you planning on taking the show on the road in 2013 with a tour of some sort?

Corey Feldman

Corey Feldman

Yeah, I have a lot of different ideas for touring right now and there is a million different ways it might go. One thing I have been working on is my own DJ set. Since I am playing a lot of electronica for this new album, I figured it was probably a good idea to know how to spin records! [laughs] I am doing some educating at the moment and learning from some of the best DJs out there. I am actually friends with a lot of the top guys like Skrillex, Afrojack and guys like that. I have hung with everybody and I know them all. I am really just starting to soak it up and DJ Rick One has been a great help in influencing me and been a big part of my educational process. There is a good chance him and I will go out and do some dates. Our first Angel, the one we are launching the brand with is Angel Courtney. She stars in the “Ascension Millennium” video and is also in a few films coming up. She is a big part of everything we are doing and will be the first profile you see out of all the Angels. She is actually a DJ! Ironically enough! There is a very good chance she is going to be out there touring with me as the DJ for the set!

You mentioned Corey’s Angels and you have been very focused on this project. What can you tell us about it and how it came about?

We are going to be hitting all over the place! We have a lot of stuff lined up at the moment, some of which I can tell you about and some of which I can’t. In a nutshell, it really came about organically. I was married for eight years and after my very rough divorce I had a very big change over in my life. I had lost many friends in one year, ended up divorced and went to Africa for three months. I had this life changing experience, mid-life, I guess. I got this new policy in life which was I didn’t want to focus on a serious relationship anytime soon. I spent my entire life going from one serious relationship to the next. Finally, I was at a point where I have a child and I needed to be responsible and not falling in love every week. Instead of having a serious girlfriend, I decided I would date a few girls at the same time and let them all know about each other. I wanted to be very honest about it and introduce them to each other so I am not one of those lying guys who says “Oh yeah, you are the one and only…” but I am dating five other girls. I live my life in a way where I believe I must stay honest and must be truthful. Therefore, as sort of a morality thing, I decided for my son’s best interest and the best interest of my sanity, I didn’t want to get into a serious relationship. I was dating these girls and they all kinda knew each other because I made it like a family environment where we could all hang out together because we were all friends. They started calling themselves Corey’s Angels!

Corey Feldman

Corey Feldman

It started really organically. Then I started thinking about my connection with Playboy and the fact I brought these girls up to the mansion all the time. A lot of them were interested in modeling or acting and wanting to be in the social scene. With that I thought I could create some sort of agency where I could actually help the girls by pulling them out of bad situations or divert them from going down bad paths by helping them be creative and helping them assert their talents in creative ways or outlets. I decided to for this company, which would be like a 360 development, management, agency and production company with a private membership club and site so I could connect these girls with talent to successful businessmen who might be able to do something about it. At the very least, the company would allow me to create productions for them myself to help them out. In the process of developing all that, I acquired Steve Wayda who has been Playboy’s top photographer for 30 years. He is now partnering up with me and creating the imagery for Corey’s Angels. As I said, we have a 360 of everything from music videos and songs to the world’s first-ever internet TV webisode series that will also be run on cable television which will be part of a brand new launch of a brand new network.

I don’t want to go too much into that but I can say there is a new Corey Feldman show on the way which will feature Corey’s Angels. Corey’s Angels will also be featured in a couple of upcoming films. We are also creating our own online private membership site where you will be able to view exclusive content and photos taken by Steven Wayda, as well as complete profiles of the girls we represent and are finding work and business contacts for. On top of all that, we were supposed to be doing a play in the UK but I am not sure if that is still on at this point or not. Beyond that, I believe the full website and online membership site is supposed to launch around the release of the album in late August 2013.

Coming Soon!

Coming Soon!

You seem to be in a great place creatively. Is that a fair statement to make?

Yeah. I have never been more open creatively. I really feel like my synapses are buzzing and ideas are popping off left and right! There is a synergy in my life right now. I have the book coming out, five different films coming out, one of which will be my first starring role with a theatrical release in 15 years here in America. It is a very big deal! I feel the book really blows the lid off of the rumors, speculation and mis-representation by the media about me. I get to really clear the air there a lot and shine a whole new light on the way people perceive me and my career.

I am really, really excited. I have never been more grateful. I am in live with my son, who is the most beautiful thing in the world and I get to spend a lot of time with him, which is great! But, yes! My creative juices are at a maximum voltage and I am ready to blow up this world! There ya go! [laughs]

That is terrific, Corey! Thanks so much for your time today! We will be spreading the word on all you have going on!

Thank so much, Jason! Talk to you soon! God Bless!

Official Tracklisting Revealed For Michael Jackson’s “BAD” 25th Anniversary Edition

Official Tracklisting Revealed For Michael Jackson’s “BAD” 25th Anniversary Edition

Celebrating 25 Years of “Bad”

Epic/Legacy Recordings in collaboration with the Estate of Michael Jackson today announced the highly anticipated track listing for the September 18th release of Michael Jackson BAD25  that celebrates the legendary album and record breaking BAD tour. Featured in the deluxe package, are three CDs, two collectible booklets, and the first ever authorized DVD release of a concert from the record breaking BAD World Tour – the July 16, 1988 sold out Wembley Stadium show in London.

Pre-Order Now

Filled with previously re-mastered versions of iconic hits and un-released recordings from the King Of Pop, the BAD25 anniversary deluxe edition CDs and DVD will include the following:

CD one features re-mastered versions of Michael’s biggest hits on the original BAD album, including, “Smooth Criminal,”  “Man In The Mirror,” “Bad,” “Another Part of Me,” “The Way You Make Me Feel,” and “Dirty Diana” arranged in the same sequence as they appeared on the original album released 25 years ago. “Leave Me Alone” was added to the album as a bonus track following its initial release and has been included on the disc.

CD two offers fans a rare listen to thirteen additional tracks, 6 of which are previously unreleased demo recordings created at Michael’s personal studio built at his then-home on Hayvenhurst Avenue in Encino, California. Also included are all three bonus tracks from the 2001 expanded edition of BAD, the previously un-released French version of Michael performing the classic, “I Just Can’t Stop Loving You,” a high  power version of “Speed Demon” remixed by Nero and the brand new remix of “Bad” worked on as an electrifying collaboration between Pitbull and Dutch DJ Afrojack.

Recordings included in this package reflect the songs and spirit of Michael Jackson’s artistry during BAD’s recording sessions and have been selected to show the different stages of how Michael’s songwriting and recording genius took shape. Some tracks are so complete that any other artist but Michael Jackson – who worked tirelessly to make sure his songs reflected his vision – might consider them finished tracks. Others are less complete but offer insight into Michael’s creative process in its various stages. Included is the demo, “Al Capone,” an early incarnation of what ultimately became “Smooth Criminal,” “Don’t Be Messin’ Around,” an example of a more complete demo, and a song initially titled, “Song Groove.” That song later became known as “Abortion Papers” which according to Michael’s own records, he spent considerable time in weighing how best to thoughtfully address something that was, and remains, a very personal and sensitive issue.

A true highlight of the package is CD three and the DVD – the never seen before live concert on DVD and its accompanying music CD of Michael’s legendary July 16, 1988 concert at Wembley Stadium. The concert is not a compilation of performances, but rather one complete show, exactly as Michael performed it for Prince Charles, Princess Diana and the 72,000 fans who were in the audience for that night’s sold out show. This show was one of the seven record-breaking nights played at the venue attended by more than half a million people – three times that many people tried to purchase tickets. The DVD was sourced from Michael Jackson’s personal VHS copy of the performance as shown on the JumboTrons during the concert. This footage was only recently unearthed and is the only known copy of the show to exist. The visuals have now been restored and the audio quality enhanced so that fans can share in the excitement of that famous night in 5.1 surround sound taken from the original multitrack recordings made that night.

In addition to the complete Wembley Show, the DVD will also contain “The Way You Make Me Feel” from Michael’s July 15th performance at Wembley Stadium. This is the only song not performed on July 16thdue to the late start of that night’s show. Also included are the thrilling early performances of “I Just Can’t Stop Loving You” and “Bad” from the Yokohama Stadium performance in September of 1987 during the first leg of the BAD World Tour.
