Karl has joined forces with Wilde West Music as a musical writer, producer, engineer and guitar player for television series and promo spots. One series in particular is scheduled for release in February; we can't reveal any details, as it's still "under wraps," but rest assured, once details are known, you'll find them here.

If you are interested in having Karl play guitar, bass or sing on any projects, or if you are looking to have him write, produce, and/or engineer on any projects, or if you want to book time in his studio, Voodooland Studios, please contact me at

I have updated the Discography Page to reflect several projects that Karl has engineered, produced and played on over the past few years. Sunstorm's "House of Dreams," ZO2's "Casino Logic" and Icarus Witch's "Songs for the Lost" have been added.

Lots of news to report, including one BIG ANNOUNCEMENT!!!!

Hindenberg - Karl will be doing several Hindenberg dates in NY in July and August. Check out the TOUR PAGE for dates/times/locations.

Rage and Beyond - Karl has completed work on a brand new album of all new, ALL ORIGINAL, material. The band is called Rage and Beyond, and the new album is entitled "Corporate Nation," which was recorded, co-written, co-produced, and co-engineered by Karl and his partner, Ed Terry. This album features performances by Karl, who played guitar, Ed Terry who sang vocals and played keyboards, Paul Dileo who played bass (remember he played with Karl at the last several Joe Lynn Turner dates, and also has been touring with Nena of 99 Luftbaloons fame for years), and Bobby Marks on drums (he toured with Dokken last summer).

The album was mixed by Kevin Shirley of Caveman Productions in Malibu, California. This guy has worked with quite literally EVERYBODY, including Led Zeppelin, Iron Maiden, Aerosmith, Journey, Metallica, Black Crowes and many, many others.

The album was mastered by Ted Jensen, the Chief Mastering Engineer of Sterling Sound in NYC. He's another guy who's worked with everybody including Kid Rock, Green Day, Nickleback, and many others.

Karl and Ed started writing and collaborating on this album over a year and a half ago, and the result is what is quite possibly the best work Karl has ever done to date. Anybody (including me, the webmaster) who has heard it has been absolutely blown away. We're still waiting for the CD's to be finished pressing (they just went to press last week), but as soon as it's done, I'll work on getting some samples on here.

And here's the best part, the CD will be released on July 18th at the Riverhead Blues and Music Festival in Riverhead, NY, where Rage and Beyond will close out the night with a live performance.

Saturday July 18th, 2009
Riverhead Blues and Music Festival 2009, Riverhead, NY where they will be officially releasing their new album entitled "Corporate Nation."

Far Cry dates for March have been posted, along with a Hindenberg date in April, so make sure to check them out. We look forward to seeing you soon.

Speaking of Hindenberg, there are a few pretty cool YouTube videos to see of Karl playing live at BB King's in NYC back in July 2008. Go to HERE to check them out. Click on the "Videos" link.

For those who don't know, there are a couple of MySpace pages set up, one for Far Cry and one for Karl. Karl's page is HERE and Far Cry's is HERE. I tend to put many more photos on those pages as opposed to here. I just put about 100 new photos on Karl's MySpace page of recent Hindenberg and Joe Lynn Turner dates, so check 'em out.

I'll put all the MySpace and Hindenberg links on the LINKS PAGE for your reference.
