Nothing against Wudstik, but why use him when you have Damian Wilson, one of the few singers who could make Bruce's vocals justice?Empire of the Clouds and Aces High were sung by Wudstik (Jermain van der Bogt). I did not know him but he is a a very talented guy with an expressive voice and insane range.
They might have something in the pipeline, but I agree it is quite strange.Might be the case. But he sure was good. Not sure how it will turn out in the studio. I was especially impressed because this was live. I don't get it why they did not record/release footage of anything of this show. Looks like they only made these promo vids to draw people to the venue. Now that it's over: not a flying fuck.
I have played with my own band loads of times in the Merthyr venue. It's just a (cool) pub with a stage.
