We all seemed to go a little gaga over Tim Christensen, his band The Damn Crystals and his friends Mike Viola and Tracy Bonham, when they took on Paul McCartney's "Ram" a few years back. That was my introduction to Tim Christensen. Since then, I have become a huge fan of the Great Dane. He's an incredible talent, with an ability to not only write and sing, but to explore. He moves effortlessly from power pop, to singer-songwriter to prog and heavy metal and all of it is wonderful.
He had a band. Dizzy Mizz Lizzy. Their last record was 20 years ago, but they are back with "Forward In Reverse." I have been playing this baby non-stop for a week and with each spin, I'm loving it more.
Check out two tracks below, the title track:
