Rami Jaffee, has been called 'the last great Hammond B-3 player', and plays organ, piano and accordion throughout the record! Rami is a founding member of The Wallflowers, and has played with just about everyone from Johnny Cash to me, but has also been keeping busy as the 5th Foo Fighter for the past 5 yrs.
The very talented Jordan Zevon, son of legendary songwriter Warren Zevon, sings back-up on a few songs; Jessy Greene, who has been busy as the 6th Foo Fighter for a few years, adds strings to the record; Jonny Polonsky, who Bryan has been a fan of since he was 16, adds guitar; former bandmates and High School friends Chuck Fay, of State Radio, and singer-songwriter Don McCloskey both appear on the song 'Wake Up'; Pete Yorn's current rhythm section, Scott Seiver and Zak Schaffer, appear on 'Let Me Come In' while Pete's former drummer, Luke Adams, plays throughout the album; much of the bass is courtesy of the amazing Joe Ayoub and additional guitars courtesy of the amazing Shaun Hague. The multi-instrumental talents of Producer Evan Frankfort are sprinkled throughout the record, rounding out the musicianship.
We've got a few more big surprises up our sleeves...we'll update you soon.
