New Duo Richards/Crane Unleash ‘Black & White’ Video Featuring Myles Kennedy
Rock fans may remember a few years back when Godsmack splintered off a side band called Another Animal. Now two of the members of that band are doing their own thing under the moniker Richards/Crane. Those two rockers are early Godsmack guitarist Lee Richards and Ugly Kid Joe singer Whitfield Crane, and for their first single the pair are getting a hand from another well-known rocker -- Myles Kennedy.
Kennedy duets with Crane on 'Black & White,' the lead track from Richards/Crane's upcoming debut disc. They've also shot a video for the song which not only features Kennedy, but several other rockers making cameos as well. Down's Philip Anselmo, Fozzy's Chris Jericho, Twisted Sister's Dee Snider, Skid Row's Dave "Snake" Sabo, Steel Panther's Michael Starr & Satchel, Skindred's Benji Webbe and Mikey Demus, TKO's Dan DeVita, The Wildhearts' Ginger and CJ Wildheart, members of Crossfaith, Eureka Machines' Chris Catalyst and Andy Copping all make cameos in the clip. The video is shot in black-and-white, featuring not only all the special guests, but also a variety of landscapes and scenery.
As stated, 'Black & White' is featured on the upcoming Richards/Crane album and the song will be made available as an instant grat track for those who pre-order any of the bundle packages at the current Pledge Music pre-order page.
It should also be noted that the page also doubles as the Pledge Music pre-order for Crane's other band, Ugly Kid Joe. The band reunited in 2010 and are set to record their first full-length album in 19 years titled 'Uglier Than They Used Ta Be.' You can check out the bundle options available at the site, get updates on the disc and more. Ugly Kid Joe counts Crane, Godsmack drummer Shannon Larkin, acclaimed producer/guitarist Dave Fortman, guitarist Klaus Eichstadt and bassist Cordell Crockett among its ranks.
