My 11p Thursday “UNDERCOVER”Feature this week included my very special guest and dear friend “CHRISTIAN “TOOCH” MARTUCCI (Corey Taylor/Stone Sour/Black Star Riders)!! Tooch called in to talk about The New Corey Taylor EP “CMFB…Sides” due out 2/25/22! The EP consists of nine songs – a mixture of covers, acoustic tracks and live versions. It opens with their rendition of Metallica’s Holier Than Thou, and also features covers from Dead Boys, Eddie Money, Red Rider, KISS and John Cafferty & The Beaver Brown Band – On The Dark Side which closes the release.
There is also acoustic renditions of Kansas and Halfway Down, and a live version of Home/Zzyxz Rd. We debuted “On The Dark Side” as Tooch told us how his Father influenced him with the great 1983 Eddie and The Cruisers Movie! Where scenes where filmed local at Rancocas Valley Regional H.S. & at a Atco NJ junk yard. They make this version all their own by adding in a little John Mellencamp & Neil Diamond He also tells us how the Cover of The EP Photograph with Kiss Makeup came to be! We wish our Local Boy done good Christian Martucci and Corey Taylor’s Band all The Best! Make sure you add “CMFB…Sides” to your musical library and take a listen to this fun chat.
