At first, can you introduce yourself and tell us in few words your own career ? 

Hey! This is Chris Laney former member of Randy Piper's ANIMAL & Zan Clan.

I have just released my first solo album, PURE. It has been a long trip to get to this, to be honest too long.

I started out in the band Scratch back in 85, released some singles, then off to Unamenus, released a EP, then off to 17 Seventeen where I started singing for the first time. We released 2 7" singles and a CD.

Then I started working as a producer songwriter wich went on for many years. In 2005 I joined Zinny Zan and Zan Clan... 

I also joined Randy Piper's Animal....

And now, here I am, Me Myself and I as a solo artist!

What are your own favorite styles and influences ? 

I love stuff as KISS, Shotgun Messiah, Ratt, Def Leppard... but I also enjoy, Jellyfish, Beatles, NIN, Marilyn Manson so i call my self a music schizo.

Chris Laney "Pure" is a feelgood, party album in my ears... so bring out the beer and get the party started!

Which artist you work with or you worked with impress(ed) you the most ?

I must say Bruce Kulick. He is an awesome musician and songwriter. He is a full blown pro in every way. He is also a great friend.

What about your promotion work and your relation with press at the moment ? Do you get a good feed back about your new album ? 

Absolutely! I am blown away!!!

I am so thrilled to get great reviews!! I can't wait to do more live shows and hopefully get the chance to meet more press face to face on the road.

What’s the mood of it ? What would you say to make people listen to it and buy it ?

Chris Laney "Pure" is a feelgood, party album in my ears... so bring out the beer and get the party started! 
If you like a good time and kick ass rock n roll, go and get my album!! :-) 



Where do you find your inspiration for music and lyrics ? 

It can be a line in a movie that triggers me, it can also be something I hear on the radio... for me it is different for every song.

What’s your favorite new track ? 

I love "Make You Cry", it is a killer song that speaks to me... Live it is "Get U Down", it is way heavier live than on the album, not meaning I do not like the album version, but I like the way it sounds with my band.

Do you think you will bring something new in music with your new cd ?

Hopefully I will refine what I already am doing... but I will bring even better songs next time, that is something I always aim to do.

What can the audience expect from you on stage ?

Hell Yeah!

You will get a show of kick ass rocknroll delivered by a fantastic backing band and myself.

We will play almost every song on the album plus some surprises.

I hope to see you soon! Thank you for having me!!
