February 24, 2009, 10 years ago
Long-running Canuck hard rockers HELIX have enlisted CRASH KELLY frontman/guitarist Sean Kelly as their new bassist. The band recently announced that former guitarist Brent "Doctor" Doerner is back in the band.
Helix recently completed work on their cover of the AC/DC classic 'It’s A Long Way To The Top If You Wanna Rock And Roll' with the original Helix line-up from 1983's No Rest For The Wicked CD (singer Brian Vollmer, drummer Greg "Fritz" Hinz, bassist Mike Uzilac and guitarist Brent "Doctor" Doerner) and THE MUDMEN (who played bagpipes).
According to a recent band update:"The song rocks and has already been mastered at Sterling Sound in NYC and sent to Perris Records in Houston for a compilation AC/DC album and to Germany and AOR Records for the upcoming Helix studio disc which is to be released in Europe and Russia. The song will appear as a "bonus" track on the CD. Now that the first song is done, we have a month off while engineer Aaron Murray travels to Switzerland to work on another project. By "month off" I really mean that we have a month to tighten up the next batch of songs we plan to record. We have several songs that are 90% finished and a couple of ideas for cover songs as well. The Buffs Bar Blues by ALEX HARVEY. I played with the guys from that band when we toured with Ian Gillan of DEEP PURPLE in '89 across Europe. They sure liked to drink!"
