Description
So, Bad Man is a song that I co-wrote with my good friend and songwriting partner, Mike McKeown out of Austin about 20 years ago. I have had it on the shelf for years, played it in a couple of bands but never recorded it. So I thought it was a great opportunity to pool the talents of my MacJam friends along with a couple of other good friends and former band mates to help me realize my vision. I originally recorded all the parts and performed the vocal, but I was fortunate to replace all of that (except bass) with the help of my friends. The song theme may be a little dark for some, but I really like the way everything came together. I can’t thank these extraordinarily talented guys enough for lending their talents to my project. What a pleasure!

A special thanks goes out to Sig and Andrew for their helpful ears on the mix.

Vocals – Dashriprock (Steve Stout)
Guitars (Rhythm/Lead) – Sigmund
Guitars (Acoustic, Rhythm) – Alackbass (Andrew Lack)
Keyboards – (Organ, Clav) – KTB (John Libby)
Drums – Steve Ritter
Bass, Mix Production – ROK41 (Chris Flynn)

Lyrics
Bad Man

Verse 1
On the high, white plains where the prairie meets the desert
I keep driving but I can’t escape the sun
One cold fact remains though I left it far behind me
In the badlands where I stopped to ditch the gun
I never knew his name ‘cause he came in unexpected
It went so fast I didn’t think to stop
Just a handful of singles I kept my eye on the horizon
I didn’t wait to see his body drop

Chorus
I’m a bad man… yes, now I own that name
Don’t make no plans… ain’t no rules to this new game

Verse 2
I can see my mama now on the front porch in her rocker
Shrugging when they ask where I have gone
Was a quiet boy in school, but a wild side like my brother
Destined me to someday going wrong
I never minded work (haha) but thieving came real easy
And it pumped me full of something like a drug
When my options narrowed down I finally threw my last trump card
And I’m trapped inside this hole that I have dug

Chorus

Bridge
Got nothing on my mind but my surviving
All I got to do today is keep on driving

Guitar solo

Verse 3
I’m gonna call you Maggie. I don’t want to know your name
Or your age or where it is that you call home
This road won’t last forever; it’s no life for you to live
So I’m left to fight these demons on my own...

Chorus

Sounds great Chris!
Good selection of co-conspirators and a magic production. I always love hearing mixes done by bass payers! Brilliant performances all round too.

A small thing about the mix - are you using an Ozone preset in here? I'm finding that the majority of the guitar action is in the left hand side and that the right is pretty quiet - I have been having this occur in Ozone when the stereo image is delayed by more than 1 ms in the top 2 bands. I'm wondering whether that might have happened here too. It's not a nit, more an observation. For me (and it's only a personal thing) I'd like to hear a bit more John in the right and a bit less Sigi in the left.

However, overall this is really good - you obviously have some pretty serious former band-mates in Steve and Steve ..... and the MJ boys play up to their usual high standards.

Like this a lot.

Cheers from Oz,
Neil

Thanks man! i really appreciate the nice comments, this was a great group of guys to work with. On behalf of all of us thank you!

Regarding the mix, I am not that familiar with Ozone so I will defer to Sig.

Yeah
Amazing sounding mix. Clear and great vocals. Solid rock groove that fits just right. I really like the subdued verses and how much the instruments cradle the vocals and support them. Would have liked the keys to be louder in the bridge, seems like the perfect spot for some hammond organ action. It's nice to hear something so polished and complete sounding.

Very nice, indeed. As Neil (jguma) mentioned, it's a bit left-heavy in the mix, but that's not to detract at all from the quality of the song itself, the performance, or the musicianship. Everyone take a bow. ;)

Ladies and gentlemen, we have us a winner! Whoever it was that said that some of the best songs come from the darkest emotions had it right... Stellar performances all around; Really wonderful lyric... What a great band this would be, that's the dark side of virtual collaboration; when lightning strikes, it's with people who may never meet face to face... But, it's still worth it when you get tunes like this! Congratulations!

Outstanding track,
and work by all of you. Excellent lyrics and story, well sung with passion, and the back tracks are just awesome.

Best I've heard on MJ since coming here almost 4 years ago and that's really saying something considering the amount of talent that plays music and post songs here.

Like I said, Outstanding.

Effing Amazing!
This track has "pro" written all over it from beginning to end. Great mix, incredible vocals, guitar is so good it makes me want to cry and wish I was a better guitar player so I could learn to play solos like that! I love the acoustic guitars in the mix, and the bass has a great sound. The lyrics are beautiful and really paint a picture...I love story songs, can never write them myself, so props for that, Chris! Love it!

Yup, Sig-nature Sig-mund on guitars, John's keyboard work always shines, as does Andrew's bass work. But you really need good songwriting/lyrics, and singing, and this has it in spades. Excellent all around.

Sigmund definately has a SIGnature sound that is almost perfect in tone. In addition though, Andrew's rhythm guitar and acoustic work were tasty and crystal, really propelled the verses.

A monster
wow, what a band. This is pro chaps. Mr lungs has that husky voice that is just right. Mr axe is too good, sir John... goes without saying and you sir are the true bass man, as for the rest of the band, too good. Cool song boys.

Yes but you're fashionably late though :)....How could I go wrong with this group of MJ studs. IN addition Steve's vocals were terrific and Mr. Ritter's drum track was killer, killer!

Cool rocker, it's sometimes good to redo an old one, with new tools and skills. Some songs keep asking for new takes, lol
Tight band, a winner, guys!

You're a BAD MAN!
Chris, that is a GOOD. I like the feel of the music, a little funk, a little "stressed spirit" for the lack of a better term. And Steve's vocals, that really brought it home. Steve has this tone, this richness to his vocals, especially on darker or more soul-stirring works. And really, 20 years ago? Normally it takes a lot more years to make marks on our souls to write at this level with this much passion. Just a tribute to your talent at a young age. Great work!!!
