I'm heading home today after a week in Ibiza. More about this trip on tomorrow's blog, but in the meantime I would like to congratulate Adam Lambert on his first number one Billboard Album Chart entry.
I played on "Shady" and we had a lot of fun doing it. Below I'm posting videos from our session together.
Wishing you many more to come... Congrats Adam Lambert!

At this point I've played "SHADY" at least 20 different ways and now I was just jamming
I explain to Adam after just meeting him why I played these first ideas before I got a chance to hear his ideas
Playing different ideas over Sam Sparro's bridge
At his point we'd gotten the song down, then I played a pedal part so they can fade it in & out
