Rock Star (Synth Pop Version)
The Rock Star dream continues… First of all, I am and always will be a metal guitarist. I’m also a huge fan of 80s music, and the artists of that era relied heavily on either guitars, synthesizers or both. It’s a decade that has always inspired me to play and write music, and even though my songs are normally on the heavier side, I still enjoy playing around with alternative instruments and arrangements. Rock Star is a very special song to me, and when we went into the studio to record Firestorm, we recorded it how I envisioned it. Since then, after rehearsing, recording and performing the song so many times, I’ve added all these new ideas in my head. As a songwriter, you always have to ask yourself, “when is the song finished?” In this case, I couldn’t stop, and it got to a point that I wanted to know what it would sound like. Since I’m a guitar player, the notion of recording a song with just synths and a drum machine might sound crazy, but it also demonstrates a side of me you rarely get to see. It also might allow the song to reach ears that would miss it otherwise. So I present to you, the synth pop version of Rock Star!
