Well i seen a few faces at these shows and we rocked em all!

Andy Curran & Mike Fraser

Well, wasn’t that an epic night of music discussion on the “Lebrain Train” as both Andy and Mike stepped up with some great stories.

Andy giving us the lowdown on auditioning for Doro and almost putting together a band with Adrian Smith from Maiden as well many other stories from the man himself!

The best is Andy will come back at some point to talk about the Coney Hatch 4 release and by then myself and Mikey will have dug into the new double live Coney Hatch ‘El Mocambo’ live show as well.. We will ask Andy about his new band “Envy of None.”

It was cool that we were able to hook both Fraze and Andy up at one point in the show for a quick catch up.

Fraze once again delivered some great stories as well. One of my favs was the time Fraze went down to Dallas to record a live show for Jackyl.

It was supposed to be an overnighter but Fraze ended up on the Jackyl tour bus for 6 weeks!

So many great stories about working with Chickenfoot, The CULT, Yngwie and much more including some recent music like The Wild! and Lee Aaron’s latest!

Thanks to both Fraze and Andy…

The Black Crowes – ‘Shake Your Money Maker’ (Super Deluxe Edition) – Album Review — 2 Loud 2 Old Music

Can you believe it has been 30 years since The Black Crowes debut album, ‘Shake Your Money Maker’? It is hard to fathom some times. The Black Crowes came on the scene with the release of the album on February 13, 1990. The album goes against the grain of the music at the time. The […

Hey Folk’s I was going to post my own review of this massive vinyl box set but my pal John Snow did such a stellar job on this vinyl boxset so why bother. Plus I’m lazy at the moment!

The Black Crowes – ‘Shake Your Money Maker’ (Super Deluxe Edition) – Album Review — 2 Loud 2 Old Music


Well Folk’s if you watched our interview with Andy this past Friday you would have noticed the technical bugs that ended our interview prematurely.

Andy being the great guy right away said he would come back and we could carry on and finish the interview that me and Mikey had started with Mr. Curran.

From Soho and beyond…

So join us this Friday April 16th at 7pm to finish what we started as we have lot’s more to discuss. I’m not giving away any inside info.

If you missed Part 1 you can watch it below beginning around the 36 minute mark. Lots of great conversation with Andy amongst some glitching.

See you Friday Night!

C’mon C’mon, the Legendary Andy Curran is on the LeBrain Train! —


I am beyond psyched to have Mr. Andy Curran guesting with Mikey and myself this upcoming Friday Night @7pm on the ‘Lebrain Train’.

We are going to tackle a whole bunch of topics pertaining to Andy’s musical journey from Coney Hatch through his solo career as well as his recent release’s of two fine albums that being Caramel (1998) and Leisureworld (2002) that have both been reissued recently on digital platforms.

I will be asking a few questions about “Scatterbrain” from the band “Soho 69″ that should have been mega that Andy put together after winning a Juno Award back in 1990 as ‘Most Promising Vocalist”.

Oh, and there’s the deal with Andy working alongside RUSH for many years.

Not only are we going to talk about all that but we’re going to pick Andy’s brain on what it was like opening and touring with such acts as Ted Nugent, Cheap Trick, Accept, Krokus, Judas Priest and Iron Maiden back in the roaring 80’s.

Speaking of Maiden we will of course ask Andy about his good pal and tennis partner Steve Harris on how that whole Canadian Tour that Coney did a few years back with Steve’s solo band British Lion came about.

Not only that but we will of course be talking about the Coney ” Live At The EL Mocambo” double live album recorded last October which should be hitting the street any day now along with a couple of new Coney Hatch studio tracks that are being finished up plus a second Coney live album that is waiting to come out as well!

Last but not least I will want to know the scoop on Andy’s latest project called “Envy of None” which features on guitar some one that is known world wide and is considered one of the all time greats! Whose that you ask?

Tune in Friday Night @7pm on Mike LeBrain’s YouTube channel to find out who!!

Have to thank my pal Tbone for putting this add for show together in which there is a story between the shirt that Andy is wearing and the Bass he is holding!

Brent Jensen Hops back on the Lebrain Train this Friday March 19th at 7pm.

Back last November we had book author/podcaster and all round good guy Brent Jensen on the “Lebrain Train” and Brent was awesome as he answered all of our questions and was game with whatever we threw his way.

Well Folk’s..

Brent’s agreed to come back  this Friday Night (March 19th @7pm) and chat some more as we have a ton of stuff to cover which I’m not going to say other than you gotta tune in to Mike LeBrains Youtube channel and join in the fun.

The Covers of the Beast: Live Friday Night Stream

Hanging with Ladano, Mr. Books, Harrison and the King of Stream Mars Man tomorrow night (Friday March 12th) at  7pm EST on a segment we are calling ‘The Covers of the Beast’
