THE SECRETS: 6 NEW MUSIC VIDEOS FROM BOB SLAP



Bob Slap is compiling his musical history for a new web page and created these videos to add to it.

I’m Home!!!

The story of life on the road from Detroit to LA to NY…………This tune has a lotta WHO and MC5 influence…….12 string on this again sounds very 60’s ala McGuinn……..MGT gets a chance to do some pounding on this one!!!!! Bob Slap on lead vocal, Charlie Bell backup vocals…..




Escape

A little melodic pop tune we did with some nice vocals. We could rock hard but we could also play the subtle stuff, so that was the great strength of the band……..we tried a little of everything…….Bob Slap on lead vocal, Charlie on Backup vocal…….




Ain't Life a Bitch

Another wild & crazy tune………Charlie Bell on lead vocal, bass and Taurus pedals in the bridge….OK this tune starts fast and goes from there…….Bob Slap throws in some sonic guitar explosions while MGT keeps it all together……..this is really a very positive tune……..”don’t take anything too serious, it will only get you down”



I'll Always Love You

Dennis and Charlie brought this little love song in………I added a little jazz riff, and the reggae in the verse and we had a rock/reggae hit here…….just never released it……Charlie Bell on lead vocal, MGT and Bob Slap on backup vocals.




Modern Medicine

A tune about the prescription drug epidemic in LA in the 70’s and the high cost of healthcare………Little did I know the tune is just as relevant today, after the oxy pain clinic craze, plastic surgery everywhere, and still the extreme cost of healthcare. This is the straight ahead hard rock version with Dennis kickin’ it off………………………………Bob Slap on lead vocal/slide guitar



Girl Crazy

A great retro 60’s party tune……featuring the 12 string guitar and a little La Bamba/Good Lovin’ groove that works pretty well here……Charlie Bell and Dennis lay it down thick, so it’s pretty easy for me to add a little Rickenbacker touch. Bob Slap on lead vocal and Charlie and Dennis on backup……..I ain’t lazy, I’m just girl crazy!!!!!
