Bill Gould!!! new band in the works!!!

Discussion in 'Bassists [BG]' started by Mikeus, Sep 29, 2008.

  1. they are called: Fear And The Nervous System

    The band features James Christian Shaffer ("Munky") on guitars and vocals; Billy Gould (Faith No More), bass; Wes Borland (Black Light Burns), guitars; Brooks Wackerman (Bad Religion, Tenacious D), drums and percussion; Leopold Ross, programming and guitars; Zach Baird, keyboards and programming. The album will be produced by Shaffer, Ross, and Jim Monti, with additional production by Tim Harkins, Leopold Ross and Danny Lohner (NIN)

    Famed producer Ross Robinson (Slipknot, KoRn) comments: "What can I do to ever come close to feeling James’s level of pure ruthless courage through a guitar? Since I’ve worked with him, I’ve tried to inspire, convince, beg, bleed, cry, prod and nearly die, hoping to hit that bar with others. I’m grateful to know what ’it’ is, and where it always exists—in my brother, James. His solo band? Yes, please!"

    The songs are being recorded at Music Grinder Studios in Hollywood, CA, with Jim Monti handling the mixing duties. Fear and The Nervous System is an exciting project that opens up the boundaries of rock, harkening back to the days when music was fearless.

    Should be interesting. I hope Billy gets the stretch his bass playing legs with them, though I'll admit I was slightly disheartened when I read that it's got members of Korn and Limp Bizkit in it! :meh:

  3. as far as LB goes, i'd say at least its the good member ;)
  4. Man does Billy look old. The most recent photo I've seen of the guy is from 10 or so years ago. I'm interested to see how this thing works out.

    That is a horrible, horrible name for a band. Will be interested to see what the music is like though.
