This weekend here in southern Finland, we are shooting my southern rock band Crossfyre’s “Born to be Free” music video once again, this time with exotic dancer Irina Tundra.

We are nearing the end of the filming phase for the video now, as next weekend in Kalajoki, Finland, Crossfyre will play a headlining set at a huge biker bash, at which we will film the final scenes for the video from our live set that evening.  Stay tuned for the release of “Born to be Free”, the music video, which will very likely see daylight prior to the release of our Iron Horse sophomore album.

My southern blues rock band Crossfyre played the gigantic Rock Legends Cruise out on the Atlantic Ocean waters this past December 2011, alongside such notable names as ZZ Top, George Thorogood and The Destroyers, Johnny Winter, Steppenwolf, Blackfoot and many others.

Film producer Oskari Pastila was aboard with us, and he filmed a four-part video documentary series for Finnish pop culture and music media www.basso.fi on our Crossfyre expedition.

Here is a sneak peak at the documentary in trailer form:

Well, the enormous Rock Legends Cruise is now history and here I sit in Lake Worth, Florida at our Crossfyre guitarist Jay Jay’s place reminiscing on the events of this past weekend aboard The Liberty Of The Seas.  Simply to be a part of rock and roll history aboard that festival at sea was monumental and a true honor for us, representing the only European act on the whole bill.

I got a chance to catch some golden oldies like Steppenwolf, George Thorogood and The Destroyers, Foghat, Blackfoot, Johnny Winter and my most anticipated Rock Legends act, ZZ Top.  Indeed, it was ZZ Top that blasted through a set which left everyone cheering and hollering, including hits like Legs, Gimme All Your Lovin’, Party on the Patio and Sharp Dressed Man.  Foghat proved to be in fine form still, as was Blackfoot.  Truly, some bands age like fine wine, and perhaps this is nowhere as true as in the blues and southern rock genres.  Considering an act like ZZ Top still includes all three original members after four decades of action speaks volumes.

Me and a couple of fans at the VIP lounge

Our definite hilite of the event from a personal standpoint with Crossfyre was playing outside on the main deck of the ship on Saturday, December 3 before a capacity audience that was introduced to our band for the first time.  I dare say we delivered in spades, winning over all kinds of new fans and even fellow musicians and technicians.  I swear I even saw Blackfoot vocalist Mike Estes actually rocking out behind the stage as we played our third and final gig at Studio B aboard the ship on Sunday, December 4th.  Of all of the audiences that I have played live in front of, this American crowd responded the best to my verbatim and banter, which simply goes to prove that I am a North American prodigy, born and bred in this culture, which in turn makes my approach resonate optimally with this kind of audience.  I have to say that I had an absolute blast performing for the fine folks on hand aboard the Rock Legends Cruise.  Thanks to everyone who made it happen and we hope to see y’all again!
