Legendary guitarist Paul Chapman (UFO) has uploaded a demo sample of a song ("No Place to Run") from his new project at his official web site. According to Chapman, the project — which has been in the making for the past 14 months — consists of reworkings of UFO tracks that were originally recorded during his tenure in the group. "So far I have 'No Place to Run', 'Wild, Willing & Innocent' and 'The Writer'," Chapman said. "When a deal is procured, I have 10 more to do. I play all guitars/basses, all vocals done by Robin McAuley [MSG], drums by Johnny Dee [DORO, ex-BRITNY FOX], and the sax on 'The Writer' is by my pal Joe Baleara, who is in the 'official' BLUES BROTHERS at Universal, Orlando. It's been recorded in about six studios, mainly at Garudio here in Palm Bay. The technology at our disposal now makes the original recordings sound kind of lifeless and dull, plus I've added nice long solos and 25 yrs of playing growth. The idea behind the album is to have as many guest artists as possible. I already have e-mails from about a dozen pals who are currently out playing in major acts. A bit early to name names, but it should be a blast. I was in the middle of writing a load of stuff after the WAYSTED fiasco, which I put on hold because of this thing which has taken on a momentum of its own. Needless to say, when this thing is finally complete, I can continue work on a completely new album of stuff, ala 2006. The final mix was done by a guy called Joe Smith (BACKSTREET BOYS, DEEP PURPLE, etc.) — ProTools wiz kid; loved working with him. Hope we can continue. It looks like Johnny and I have formed a kind of partnership where we will be working together again in the new band. He's out with DORO at the moment in Europe, back in July or sometime. Robin is singing better now than ever."
