That’s right folk’s! Coming back for Round Three with me and Mikey is the one and only Andy Curran.
We have so much more to discuss with Andy like the hidden gem of a Coney Hatch album from 2013 called ‘Four’ plus a lot of praise will be tossed Andy’s way from us on the stellar double live “Live At The El Mocambo”
Plus more talk on Andy’s current project in which he has a pal named Alex Lifeson playing guitar..
Considering when I reached out to Andy I was hoping to talk to him for a hour at best and here we are three interviews later.
Plus I asked Andy beforehand if he would be willing to do a little show and tell with us in which he agreed, and It’s safe to say I don’t think I have seen Andy do this anywhere so for us this may be a first!
Wanna find out more?
Tune in today at 1pm at Mike Lebrain Youtube Channel for all the action. If you can’t watch it live it will be available on continuous rerun!
Speaking of which subscribe to Mikey’s Youtube Channel…
Tonight at 7pm we will be talking to this guy on the right Mr. Sean Kelly who is one busy fella but has made some time for us to ask him a bunch of questions.
A classically trained guitarist(with four classical guitar records out) Sean currently is plugged in and playing with artists diverse such as Nelly Furtado, Gilby Clarke as well being a full time member in Coney Hatch and Lee Aaron
Sean has also written a best selling book “Metal On Ice” and is currently writing a second book which we will dig into.
He’s also a music teacher in the Catholic School Board so for him to make time for us is pretty special.
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!

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 goingto post my own reviewof 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 LeBrain Train: 2000 Words or More with Mike and Superdekes Episode 59 – The Earl of the 8th Note – Andy Curran His name is on so many albums in our collections, from Coney Hatch to Soho 69 to Caramel and beyond, to writing with Kim Mitchell and helping to put together Rush and […]
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!
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.
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.
Plus it’s Ladano’s 1 Year Anniversary since he started this streaming thing so come on friends let’s make it good one and support Mikey as well.
